Reading Isaiah’s Mind – Chapter Thirteen – verses 1-11

                                                                    A Prophecy against Babylon

Tower
The tower of Babel actually means the “Stronghold (bastion; citadel)  of confusion” (mix-up ; disorientation; misrepresentation).

The name “Babylon” is is derived from babelpronounced-baw-bel-meaning: confusion.   The fundamental concept of babel is: Babylon or to be unable to distinguish between two differing, even opposing things. The word balel is associated with the famous “Confusion Of Tongues” narrative found in (Genesis 11:1-9) The Tower of Babel is described as a massive (towering) structure or organization (organized body of people with a particular purpose) “with its head (leadership; administration) “in-the-heavens”.   All this is metaphoric language for a towering (preeminent; supreme) organization of men whose head (exclusive-group-of-chief-executive-officers; leadership ) is deified (treated as if they are gods) . The “Tower-of-Babel” is assembled of man-made (made by human beings, as opposed to being made naturally; i.e.  artificial) bricks (small rectangular building-blocks) made of mud (slimy-sticky mixture of earth and water) that have been sundried.  Babylon’s tower was not made of natural-stones like Jerusalem’s Temple. Instead, the components are man-made mud-bricks prepared in an assembly line fashion.

“Discernment” (the ability to judge between differing, even opposing things) is the capacity (ability; power) to judge things. It was once an inherent charateristic of Israel’s people (like curly hair).   Their sojourn in  Babylon (confusion), has come at a high-cost.   Currently,  they are without  “discernment” (ability to judge and differentiate between differing, even opposing things), so they are easily led all over the place in confusion (turmoil; mix-up; misunderstanding; mystification; misinterpretation). This does not to imply that they walk around in a daze as one might conclude, but rather, because they can no longer discern (differentiate; make a distinction between contrasting or opposing things; discriminate between things) very well, they are prone (vulnerable; liable)  to  mixing-things-up.  Thus, in the latter-days, Israel’s people are easily beguiled (hoodwinked; gulled) by unscrupulous men who lie in wait to defraud them. Israel’s people are at a disadvantage because they can no longer tell the difference between the men who tell the truth and men who lie.

2. Because Mormon General Authorities are exalting themselves as Israel’s kings , this generation of Israel’s people is complicit (involved; mixed-up; embroiled; absorbed) in their own transgression due to intoxication   (drunkenness; mind-poisoning). Mormon Leadership’s self-exaltation (self-deification)  is proof-of (evidence of)  Salt Lake’s implementation of its unparalleled (consummate) mass-seductionseduction of Israel’s people. Salt Lake’s prophets call-to (lure; summon; seduce;  beckon) Israel’s people  to enter-the-gates  (join the ranks) of the “nobles”  (those who volunteer to offer-up their own lives and the lives of their families) in obedience to Salt Lake’s priesthood leadership.

 

 

3. I am commanded  to teach (instruct; school; educate) Israelites who are consecrated (anointed; ordained) to do a very important work.  In like manner, to confront ( stand opposed to; contradict) Salt Lake’s tyranny that is  provoking God’s anger toward priesthood leaders who are  exulting (celebrating; jumping-for-joy; rejoicing) over their  stolen power and authority.

 

 

mobilizing
Salt Lake is attempting to mobilize its army of apostates before Jehovah can muster his Host.

4. The sound of babel (confusion; disorientation; mix-up; misrepresentation) in the Rocky Mountains sounds a lot like a race (tribe; family) of people speaking proudly,  proclaiming (calling for ; crying out; proclaiming) the destruction (devastation) of Gentiles (nations; non-Mormons) kingdoms.  This generation of Salt Lake’s priesthood leadership  is attempting to mobilize them  before  The Lord of Host (Jehovah) can muster  (summon; assemble) His Israelite-army ( host; phalanx) for war.   

 

 

5. Plucked-out-of-obscurity (suddenly made famous), Israel’s people  cut-off (interrupt; bring-to-an-end; renounce; intercept; disconnect) the power and authority of Salt Lake’s prophet’s.  They are accompanied by Jehovah and the weapons of His wrath.  They are emerging “out-of-obscurity” to utterly-defeat (wipe-out; swhqatter; overturn; lay-waste; eradicate) Salt Lake’s false-prophets, seers and revelators.

 

 

destruction
The “Day-of-the-Lord” spells destruction (devastation; doom) for Jehovah’s enemies.

6. Salt Lake’s leaders had better  Wail (lament; bewail; mourn)……because the “Day-of-the-Lord” is at-hand (forthcoming; approaching; impending; looming).  The “Day-of-the-Lord” is characterized by devastation (desolation;  destruction) to Jehovah’s enemies. Jehovah is coming back!

 

 

7. As a result,  Salt Lake’s hand (power; influence) will go-limp  (become-weak; become-impotant; be-enfeebled) and every heart (mode of thinking and acting; motive; will and purpose)  among Salt Lake’s men will be spotted  (detected; recognized; identified). 

 

 

 

Israel’s people are gripped (hypnotized; mezmerized; captivated) by Salt Lake’s prophets, seers and revelators  (magicians; sorcerers).

8. The idols ( heroes; icons) and the corruption (depravity; wickedness; dishonesty) of Salt Lake’s priesthood leadership is a source of intimidation for  Israel’s people. This generation of Israel’s people (Mormon people) is virtually gripped (captivated;controlled; dominated) by Church headquarters in Salt Lake, not unlike a woman who is gripped by the throws of labor. The husbands of this generation of Israel’s people (Mormon people) are being systematically defiled (profaned; perverted; ruined)  by their own Priesthood leadership.  They will look aghast when they realize the purposes of their leadership training (instruction; schooling; orientation) by Salt Lake was designed to fire (excite; arouse; galvanize; electrify)  Israel’s people to serve Salt Lake’s purposes.

 

9. Behold, the fierceness (ferocity; violence; savagery) of Jehovah’s return (approach) and the outpouring of anger associated with His wrath on account of the foulness of the prophets of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints, who are orchestrating  (administering; calling the plays of) desolation,  and Mormon prophets who are causing Israel’s people to sin (totally missing the mark) because of bribery (kickbacks; hush-money; inducements).

 

 

stars
Mormon stars (celebrities; luminaries; leading-men) who are pointing (directing everyone’s attention) to Salt Lake’s authority, are fooling themselves as well as everyone else.  

10. Indeed, (actually), the Mormon stars (luminaries; celebrities; Mormon-General-Authorities), who are calling pointing (directing everyone’s attention) to Salt Lake’s authority are fooling themselves, as well as everyone else.  They don’t  (do not; will not) reveal  (make-known; disclose; divulge)  the source (fountainhead; author; origin) of their light (“image of good fortune and prosperity”).  They are prophets, seers and revelators  enveloped in darkness, who are pointing to the coming “sunrise” (Millenial Day),  while  unloading ( (discharging; dumping)  their foul excrement ( filth; waste matter) and of course, the Moon (“lesser light that rules the night”) is always present in their Holy Convocations (conferences; meetings; assemblages).

 

 

fallen Babylonian kingdom11. However, Jehovah’s punishment is upon their profanation (blasphemous-behavior) and upon the perverse (degenerate; deviant; corrupt; self-willed)  dominion of Salt Lake’s wicked high-priests and prophets who celebrate the “Power and Authority of Arrogance”,  but I (Jehovah) will humble those who are intimidating Israel’s people.
