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

blind
Salt Lake’s priesthood leaders don’t see (perceive; recognize) anything,  so they direct everyone’s attention to their leadership and they point everyone to their image (characterization of themselves as being of an unquestionable nature).

8. And no longer fantacize (consider; contemplate; indulge-in-day-dreams; live-in-a-dream-world; fantacize) about  Mormon-Temples (places where Israelites pledge their souls and their resources to Salt Lake)  and what the leadership (management; administration) of this generation of Salt Lake’s priesthood leadership has produced.  They don’t see (discern; perceive or recognize) anything, for this reason (therefore) they direct everyone’s attention to “Mormon-happiness” and they point to images (descriptions or portrayals of things as being a unquestionable nature), when,  in fact, things are not at all what they are described and portrayed to be.

thicket
In that day, Salt Lake’s most powerful communities (gatherings; congregations) will seem like abandoned thickets (tangled mazes of inter-connected-family-branches). 

9. In that day, Salt Lake’s most powerful communities (gatherings; congregations) will seem like God-foresaken thickets (tangled mazes of inter-connected-Mormon-branches) just like Salt Lake’s self-exalted priesthood leaders have forsaken Israel’s people (rank and file Mormons) . Because of the presence of Israel’s descendants (successors; scions; children; descendants), their cult (church; denomination) will be devastated (wasted; desolated).

10. Indeed, you (Israel’s-people; rank and file Mormons) have forgotten (dismissed-from-mind; consigned-to-oblivion)the God of your salvation and the corner-stone of your strength (mental stamina; backbone). You rarely make-mention-of (remember)  anything concerning uprightness and honesty. You’ve been seduced by a plantation (established-organization; established-corporation; established-colony; established-settlement; established-company) of pleasant (attractive; enchanting; fascinating; charming) high-priests and a foreign (non-Israelite) vine (lineage; family; bloodline) of The-adversary’s (Satan’s; Lucifer’s)  priesthood authorities spreading their own seed.

sorrowful 1
Mormonism’s preoccupation with genealogy  accomplishes nothing but extending (fortifying) Salt Lake’s wall  (rampart; stronghold; bastion)  during an dark era of Israel’s occupation by Salt Lake’s army and great-sorrow for common (ordinary) Israelite men and women.

11. From the day you are planted (baptized; established) you’ve been repeatedly misled and by (thru) seeking-out your planting (placement; ancestry), you’ve been advancing (extending; enlarging) Salt Lake’s wall (rampart; defensive wall of a castle or walled city; stronghold; bastion) during-a-day (in-an-era; at-a-time)  of occupation (conquest; capture; seizure; subjugation) for Israel’s people (rank and file Mormons) and for sorrow in the souls of common (average; ordinary; run-of-the-mill; normal) men and women.

12.  Oye (alas; an expression of grief, pity, or concern) … the sound  of a multitude of people collected-together making much of themselves (deifying-themselves; exalting-themselves), as they point (direct attention of) Israel’s people (rank and file Mormons) toward death (the abode of the dead; the gates of death) thru (by-means-of; in-consequence-of; using) sorcery (the practice of black-magic; black-arts; enchantments; spells).  They are pointing (directing everyone’s attention ) toward men (Salt Lake’s General Priesthood Authorities) who are the “nails” (hooks; pegs) upon whom Israel’s people, i.e. rank and file Mormons, are supposed to hang and the  great  (twisted-together) crowd of men who are gathering (collecting) Israel’s people together and coming-on (showing interest through words or actions) like  rushing (surging; cascading ) 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 fortress (citadel; military-stronghold).

winnowing
Their words are like “chaff”(worthess chatter; rubish; crap), which is lifted-up,  only (solely or exclusively) to be blown-away (bowled-over; overcome; defeated; overthrown) by the wind (spirit of God) .

13. Gathering themselves into a  community (circle; brotherhood; clique) of men,  like raging (violent; turbulent) waters multiplying (making-much-of; increasing; making-a-big-deal-over) themselves, while they point (directing everyone’s attention) toward  Hades (the abode of the dead; the gates of death), as the power of sorcery flows from them. They make a lot of noise, but are rebuked as (playing the role of)  the seed (source; beginning; generation of “noise-makers” (sorcerers) in their midst, so they raise (hoist; publish) an “ENSIGN” from a remote (unresponsive; unfriendly; detached) place and their words are followed earnestly,  like  chaff (worthless-words; trash; garbage; rubbish; junk; crap) lifted-up,  only to be blown away (bowled-over; overcome; defeated; overthrown) by the wind (spirit of God) or like tumbleweed carried-away by a whirlwind (tornado; tempest; cyclone).   

 

 

 

plowing
Because  Salt Lake’s leaders have taken it upon themselves to intermix (jumble; mix-up; confuse) good and evil, now there is trouble caused by the  interruption of plowing (digging-deeply; making-inquiry; searching-completely) by Israel’s people (rank and file Mormons)  

14. Not too late (in-time)  to intermix (jumble; mix up in a confused way) good and evil together. And behold (something unexpected, but could have been predicted)…. trouble  (difficulties; problems) caused by an  interruption (intrusion; invasion; encroachment; incursion; a-disruption; a-discontinuance) in plowing (digging-deeply; making-inquiry; searching-completely). There is no one among this Salt Lake generation to administer the plunder (devastation; violent acquisition of property)  coming to Salt Lake’s  seed (deserving of Salt Lake’s seed) and their inheritance  for preying-upon our latter-day generation of Israel’s people (rank and file Mormons)  .
