Reading Isaiah’s Mind – Chapter Seventeen – verses 8 -14**

8.¬†So, don’t waste another minute¬†fantasizing¬†(considering; contemplating; indulging-in-day-dreams; living-in-a-dream-world)¬†about¬†¬†Mormon-Temples (places where Israelites pledge themselves and their resources to Salt Lake) ¬†and what the leadership¬†(“Pharoah”)¬†of this generation of Salt Lake’s priesthood Organization claims to have produced for the benefit of Israel.¬† They’re not interested in truth, (truthfulness; candor; varsity; correctness) because the truth¬†would set Israel’s people¬†(rank and file Mormons)¬† free.¬† Salt Lake¬† “Can’t-Tolerate-That”,¬† so they focus everyone’s attention on an “image-of-happiness”¬†after which Salt Lake wants Israel’s people (rank and file Mormons)¬†to model themselves. “Cocksure” (presumptuously and arrogantly confident)¬† that whatever comes out of their mouths is received by Israel’s people (rank and file Mormons) as “the truth”, Salt Lake bombards¬†(blitzes; pounds; assaults; besieges; harasses) Israel’s people¬† (rank and file Mormons) withImage result for I am so happy gif heartwarming¬†images (“stories”; “Make-Believe”; illusions; fantasies; daydreams; mockeries; mimicries; pretences) of¬†“happiness”, even so far as to alter (modify) the correct (accurate; true)¬†¬†interpretation (understanding; definition) of the¬† Hebrew term Basar” (gospel; glad-tidings; “fresh-News; breaking-News”*¬†from the battlefront) for a¬†decidedly “warmer and fuzzier” but more mystifying¬†(misleading; deceptive; enchanting)¬†¬† Plan-of-Happiness”.

*¬†¬†“Breaking-News” – The root verb¬†◊Ď÷ľ÷łÔ¨ę◊ü◊ě◊§÷∑◊®¬†b√Ęsar¬†(Strong’s #1319, x26) is used for bringing or carrying fresh news generally from the battlefront. The messenger was usually “fresh-faced” or “flushed” from his arrival and the news was usually “good”, though its first use in¬†1 Samuel 4:17, using the participle of the verb¬†◊ě÷į◊Ď÷∑◊ö÷ľ÷Ķ◊®¬†mebhass√™r, is of a “messenger” bringing the bad news of family and national slaughter to Eli. Similarly, when David is about to hear of Absalom’s death in¬†2 Samuel 18:19-20¬†Joab tells Ahimaaz, who interprets the news as good because “the LORD has avenged him of his enemies”, to delay sending the news.
¬†From this idea of bringing “fresh breaking news”, good or bad, the pallor of the messenger himself lends the idea “being fresh, full of life, rosy-cheeked” giving rise to the derived noun,¬†◊Ď÷ľ÷łÔ¨ę◊ü◊ě◊§÷ł◊®¬†b√Ęs√Ęr, which means “flesh” or “skin” as that which is carried on the bodily frame and that which is flushed with colour. Thus¬†◊Ď÷ľ÷łÔ¨ę◊ü◊ě◊§÷∑◊®¬†b√Ęsar¬†speaks of the immediacy of fresh tidings which the hearers no doubt would hope were “good news” but which the word requires describing explicitly as “good” as the news-carrying itself only implies its freshness, not necessarily its content.

 

(Verse #8 continued)

According to the proverb (pithy saying stating a piece of advice)¬†“Wickedness-Was-Never-Happiness”¬†alleged to have been coined by Mormonism’s “BOOK-OF-MORMON” prophet, Alma,¬† Salt Lake’s presiding authorities, themselves, are not¬†qualified (worthy; eligible; fit; deserving) to enjoy “happiness” (“a sense of well-being”).¬† ¬†Truth (light; knowledge of eternal-reality; honesty), which creates an environment in which “happiness” ¬†(“a sense of well-being”)¬†may develop,¬† is nothing but a “gadfly” (pesky source of annoyance)¬†to Salt Lake’s priesthood leaders.¬† They’ve “lied-to”¬†(misled; deceived; deluded; fooled; duped) you¬†(Israel’s people; rank and file Mormons) because “happiness”¬†(“a sense of well-being”)¬†is actually a¬†manifestation¬†(proof;Related image sign)¬†of¬†“goodness”.¬† ¬† ¬†“Happiness” is not had (attained (experienced; enjoyed; felt; achieved) without¬†cause¬†(goodness). So,¬† Salt Lake must alter the thinking of¬†Israel’s people (rank and file Mormons) by¬†cajoling¬†¬†(sweet-talking) them into “Pretending”¬†(making-believe; “faking”)¬†“Happiness”¬†(a sense of well being) so everyone will watch (observe) them and imitate their behavior.¬† But, the¬†truth¬†is nothing like the “Pretence”¬†(make-believe; “fakery”; misrepresentation; mockery)¬†Salt Lake is¬†spreading¬† (exhibiting; circulating).¬†

thicket
In that day, Salt Lake’s most powerful family organizations¬†(cabals; circles; clans) will appear more and more like a God-forsaken thicket¬†(bunch; network) of families.¬†

9.¬†During our era (during our generation)¬†Salt Lake’s most powerful Crime¬†Family Organizations¬†(syndicates; cabals; circles; oligarchies;)¬†appear more and more like a dark and dreary God-forsaken¬†thicket¬†(bunch network) of families……..matching (paralleling; comparable-to; rivalling)¬†the¬†degree (extent; severity; measure)¬†to which¬†Salt Lake’s priesthood leaders have forsaken Israel’s people (rank and file Mormons) . Because of the arrival (appearance; advent; homecoming; destiny) of Israel’s descendants¬†(successors; scions; seed; children; descendants), Salt Lake’s¬†cult (religion; school) is¬†devastated (wasted; desolated).

10.¬†But, you¬†(Israel’s-people; rank and file Mormons)¬†are not completely¬†“off theImage result for cornerstone hook”¬†(blameless;¬† free of responsibility; exempt)…… because you’ve allowed yourselves to¬†forget¬†(dismiss-from-your-mind; consign-to-oblivion)¬†the God of your salvation and the cornerstone (foundation; linchpin) of your strength (advantage; stamina; backbone). You rarely¬†make-mention-of¬†(remember) Jehovah’s word¬†(commandment; instruction; Torah)¬†anymore concerning “uprightness” and “honesty”.¬† ¬†You’ve enthusiastically allowed yourselves to be seduced¬†(co-opted; beguiled) by a plantation (colony)¬†of charming (alluring; captivating) Salt Lake high-priests and a foreign (strange; alien; non-Israelite)¬†vine (dynasty; line of hereditary rulers; lineage; bloodline)¬†affiliated-with¬†(connected-with; beholding to)¬†“the-Adversary”¬†(Satan; Lucifer).¬†

sorrowful 1
Salt lake’s promotion of Mormon preoccupation with genealogy (Family history)¬†“only”serves to¬†¬†extend¬†(continue;¬† enlarge; reinforce)¬†Salt Lake’s wall ¬†(aristocracy; rule by the “best”; rule of the “elect”; snobbery; presumptuousness;¬† clique;¬†rule by the “upper-crust”)¬†while Israel is subjugated¬†(overthrown; dominated; seized; taken-over; capture)¬†by Salt Lake’s army and a time of great sorrow for rank and file¬†¬†(Israelite)¬†Mormons.

11.¬†Since the day you are planted¬†(baptized; established)¬†you’ve been repeatedly misled¬†¬†(deceived; deluded; fooled; hoodwinked).¬†¬†¬†A search for your family¬†ancestry (family or ethnic descent) is an abomination to Me (Jehovah) because it only serves to¬†justify¬†(legitimize)¬†Salt Lake’s wall (class-distinction; aristocracy; snobbery; presumptuousness) which wouldn’t be possible¬† unless¬†Israel’s people¬†(rank and file Mormons)¬†are subjugated¬†(enslaved; “subordinated”) to¬†Salt Lake’s Melchizedek Priesthood Authorities. This is a time of¬†great sorrow for¬†rank and file¬†¬†(Israelite)¬†Mormons.

12. ¬†Oi, vai !¬†(Dear me; alas; expression of dismay or hurt)¬†…¬†the sound¬†¬†of a multitude of people gathering together¬† to¬†make much of themselves (deify-themselves; exalt-themselves),¬†as they point¬†(direct attention of)¬†Israel’s people (rank and file Mormons)Image result for funny bug-eyed man in glasses gif toward death (“Hades”; the abode of the dead)¬†thru (by-means-of; in-consequence-of; using)¬†sorcery (the practice of black-magic; black-arts; enchantments; spells). ¬†They are pointing (directing the attention) of Israel’s people (rank and file Mormons)¬†toward¬†Salt Lake’s General Priesthood Authorities¬†as the¬†“nails”¬†(hooks; pegs) upon which Israel’s people, i.e. rank and file Mormons, must depend,¬†¬†so a¬†¬†great crowd of these Salt Lake men is rushing (storming; charging; assailing)¬†¬†Israel’s men (rank and file Mormon men) with¬†¬†waters (Sorcery; black-arts). They make-a-lot-of-noise (roar; make-a-lot-of-commotion)¬†as if (as would be the case if) they are Israel’s only hope.

They make a lot of noise, but stand¬†rebuked¬†because they are pretending to be Israel’s¬†seed (offspring; scions) ¬†so they raise (hoist; publish) an “ENSIGN” (monthly magazine)¬†from a remote (unresponsive; unfriendly; detached) place.¬† Their words are¬†like chaff¬†(worthless-stuff; garbage; rubbish; junk; crap), but they are lifted-up,¬†¬†only to be blown away (bowled-over; overcome; defeated; overthrown) by the wind (spirit of God) and¬†like tumbleweed carried-away by a whirlwind¬†(tornado; tempest; cyclone)……… ¬†¬†
