Reading Isaiah’s Mind – Chapter Seventeen – verses 1- 7**

An Oracle against Damascus

The name “Damascus” is an appellation (identifying words by which someone is publicly known, e.g. George Herman Ruth’s parents may have known him as George, but the rest of the world knew this famous slugger by his appellation, “Babe”.) An appellation sometimes identifies a group of people who share a common mindset (established-set-of-attitudes). “Damascus” (“a network of Cold-blooded-killers” ) is actually a combination of two words, Dam, and Saq. We will examine each segment separately.

droplet of blood
According to Hebrew thought: a person’s life (personal power) is carried in his/her blood. This power is passed down from generation to generation thru his/her genetic code. 
Dam -pronounced- dawm is a noun meaning “blood”. Blood plays a prominent role in beliefs, myths, and magical cultic acts. Along with semen, mothers milk, spittle; urine and tears, blood is a fluid that originates within the human body. It is identified with a unique degree of “vitality”.   It is understood as the essence of the personal powers that are at work within a person or a creature and is considered the true “life-substance”, thus blood has power. Blood carries the inheritance of blessings and curses. The blood of an innocent man can atone for the crime of a guilty man. From this concept came Jesus Christ’s sacrifice of His own life for the sins of his people. The word “blood” also refers to murder or slaughter.

Saq-pronounced-sak is also a noun. It means mesh; network; web; something-interwoven. In a literal sense, it refers to the loosely woven cloth used to hold items for bagging and for Sackcloth (garments worn by mourners and slaves).  In a Figurative sense, saq means a group or system of interconnected people; a network; a complex-organization; labyrinth;  a system; a mutual connection between people with a common bloodline, common- goals or common-objectives. Geographically, “Damascus” is the headquarters of Syria.   Syria, in Hebrew,  is Aram-pronounce-Arawm and it means “high-ground” or  “Citadel” (fortress, typically on physical- high-ground, protecting or dominating a city). In a metaphoric sense, the name Aram (Syria)  symbolizes Salt Lake headquarters and its leader’s claims of some kind of superior “Religious/moral-High-Ground” in Salt Lake City, Utah. Salt Lake’s presiding Priesthood leaders do believe that they are a cut above the rest of humanity…..they’re royalty…… but that “royalty” of theirs is only because they’ve stolen it from Israel’s people.
all dressed in white
White is symbolic of moral-purity and light  (enlightenment; illumination; brilliance and luminosity) and things that are good, innocent, honest and clean. So…let’s all dress in white! 

The Melchizedek priesthood Organization is actively competing for superiority against Jehovah’s authority (jurisdiction; command; control; sovereignty; supremacy). Its priesthood hierarchy reigns over every rank and file member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints and you shouldn’t be surprised to learn that every one of Salt Lake’s presiding General Authorities is connected (linked; related) either thru blood or marriage,  to every other presiding General Authority. It’s no coincidence that collectively (as a group; as a whole), these men are also known as  “The Brethren”.   They actually “ARE” members of one huge-extended family (house)………..of men who all “Share-in-Common”…….a big-ugly-secret. Here’s something you probably never guessed was so…….

“Pharoah” is defined as: (control; leadership), but the noun Pharoah is based on the root-verb “Para” meaning: to uncover; to remove; to let-go; to loose; to unbridle; to remove self-restraint, inRelated image the sense of “being in full view” (being-blatant; being-brazen; being-bold) “Out-in-the-Open” (without concealment, deception, or prevarication, especially where these might be expected). In other words,  Pharoah is a dynasty (line of hereditary rulers)  whose men are so secure (Cocksure) of their absolute dominion and jurisdiction over the common people and that they and members of their extended families are free to do whatever they wish…… commit whatever crime they want with impunity (exemption from punishment or freedom from the injurious consequences) Mormon governance is modeled after Egyptian-control and it is a kind of  “In-your-Face” governance…..“An Absolutely unaccountable house of hereditary “criminal-bosses”…Does this sound familiar?

Each one of them, first and foremost,  represents the interests of  “Damascus” (Salt Lake’s “Network of Cold-blooded-killers”; Salt Lake’s “Absolutely Unaccountable Dynasty of Hereditary “Crime-Bosses”).
