Reading Isaiah’s Mind – Chapter Three – verses 13-26

13. Jehovah is bearing witness (testifying) for the prosecution in a Law-suit

Surprise Witness
Ahhhh Yes…. We have a Surprise Witness!

(litigation; legal action)  against Salt Lake’s priesthood leadership and he is taking the witness stand (testifying; bearing-witness)   to condemn  (convict) the Chief-Officers  (General Authorities) of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Salt Lake City.

14. Jehovah has entered into judgment against Salt Lake’s Presiding “Elders”  (prophets and apostles) who are leading His people  ( Israel’s people) and

Dust Bowl
Salt Lake’s priesthood authorities are , collectively,  ruining the Lord’s Vineyard

the lower level High-Priests (princes) of this generation of Mormon leadership,  and collectively, they are  “ruining  the Lord’s Vineyard, ”  and plundering  (robbing looting) the poor  (humble; needy; lowly) ones,  among Israel’s  daughters  (disciple; believers; devotees).

crushing the poor
“the poor ARE my people”

15. What is it  (what’s the matter) with you Salt Lake General Authorities ? You crush my people  (Israel’s people). You grind (crush; smash) the faces  (purposes and intentions) of  Israel’s poor,   declares the Lord God of Hosts.

.FYI  – Verse fifteen employs parallelism,  a literary technique commonly used by Isaiah. It consists of two synonymous statements, i.e.  what the prophet says in one statement he more less repeats in the second.  Sometimes the second statement can modify or qualify the first. Thus the reader can obtain a clearer meaning or interpretation of the verse. In this context, it is clear that Jehovah’s people are Israel’s poor   – The Literary Message Of Isaiah” – Avraham Gileadi  pp. 19-22.

 

16.The Lord says,  “It’s obvious, that the Presiding Elders of The Mormon Church  are  “moralcowards” and walk  (move along; conduct-themselves )   with perverted (twisted; deviant) necks , (communications; transmissions)). They

flirty eyes
“You know what this look means….!”

routinely signal (flash; flirt) coquettish   (seductive) eyes  (passions; desires; appetites) while mincing ( putting on airs;  using tender and  alluring language ) as they walk  (parade-themselves; flaunt themselves)  and by  effacing themselves  (hiding their faces, i.e.  removing any evidence of their real purposes or motives), they are binding  this generation of Israel’s people (Mormon people) with fetters (shackles; obligations; restraints; chains).

.

.

17. Then , they broaden (spread-out)   the basis (grounds ; justification; right; reason)  for   crowning themselves (enthroning themselves; installing themselves) as Israel’s kings   under the hand of Zion’s women (pejorative for “cowardly men”) and Jehovah “opens the way” (provides-enough-rope)   for this generation of Salt Lake’s leaders  to hang-themselves(do something in the way that they wish, when He knows that they will probably fail). God knows the source of their power with women (weak-minded,  cowardly men) and their capacity to entice women (spineless-men) to be their subjects.  This would include: wives (particularly chickenhearted; craven-men); “concubines” (male-priesthood prostitutes, who trade what is “Sacred” or “Holy” for money);  “paramours” (illicit-partners)  or any other spineless and timid men,  who are  vulnerable and can be easily persuaded to accept Salt Lake’s General Authorities as their Lords and Masters.  This idolatrous power-base (coalition; source of authority, influence, or support)  establishes for each one of of them,  a  “throne” (dominion; jurisdiction; mastery; control) for “Mormon-Kingship”, but it is Jehovah who gives power to  this generation, in the first place (to begin with; at the outset; before all else; beforehand; to start with),  so they able to persuade and beguile Israel’s people, by using their lips (magic spells;  enchantments).

.

18. In that day, the Lord will snatch away, their  source of power with women (timid men; spineless-men) and their assurance  (guarantee)  of celestial-glory (permanent residence with God, the Father and Jesus Christ);  family-ties  (familial-connections);  marriages for time and eternity (marriage-permanence) as well as their priesthood network  (system; web of Priesthood connections; links; interconnections; ties; bonds) and their capacity to blacken (darken; eclipse; block)  the “light” of this generation of Israel’s people.

19. And Salt Lake’s  tiny drops of inspiration  (paltryprophetic-LENGTHEN YOUR STRIDEutterances) and their Apostolic-minstrels   (traveling-troubadours) and stumbling (floundering; faltering; careening; falling; shuffling) around from drunkenness (intoxication inebriation), determined to “lengthen-their-stride” ( speeding-up of their efforts).

.

.

 

20.  Their “Crowns-of-Glory”Royalty  (exaltation as Israel’s kings and queens), their  “pomp and pageantry”  (royal procession), their secret combinations with each other and all the admirers captivated by their  scent (stink; perfume; magic-spells) of their magicians (charmers; sorcerers; wizards; enchanters; necromancers).

Ring in the nose 2
A “Ring In One’s Nose” means he is easily  controlled (usually through coercion or compulsion). The tissue in the nose is extremely sensitive, thus, controlling a bull with a nose -ring is easy enough for a child to do.

21. And their sealing-rings (band of priests who claim to open and shut, i.e. seal and unseal  the heavens and earth) together with the Salt Lake’s “ring-in-each-man’s-nose” (compulsion; coercion) employed to control “Mormon-Bulls” (priesthood holders).  

 

22.  Their Mantle (“Cloak-of-Preeminence”) covers (hides camouflages; conceals; screens; obscures; disguises) their  secret-activities  and shrouds (completely envelopes; enfolds) their lives in “The-Forces-of-Darkness” (evil; wickedness; iniquity; immorality; devilry),  so the presiding priests who “Spread-Their-Palms”  (exercise their power)  over Israel’s people, do it,  in order to curse  (cast spells upon ) them and their astrologists who are drawing  magical lines and circles around the Israel’s people,  will not stop.

.

23. Then, the exile (ostracism; exclusion) of this generation of Israel’s people from leadership together with the holding power of their holy-garments  (Mormonunderwear) and the anticipation of Mormon diadems (crowns of royalty)  reserved exclusively for “General Authorities”  (presiding Priesthood Authorities)

of Mormonism and “Pulling the Wool Over” the eyes of Israel’s people, can be stopped.

24.  Then,  instead of fragrance , there is stench  (putrid stink).  Instead of a sash wrapped around their waists,  ropes of slavery are tying Israel’s people up. Instead of well-dressed  (care-taking)   rolls  for Israel’s people , there is baldness ( disgrace) and instead of a fine-stomacher ( stiff panel of material, often decorated with embroidery or jewels, worn over the chest and abdomen by wealthy men and women in ancient times) there is a wrapping of

Sackcloth and ashes
the habits of prisoners and slaves

sackcloth  (garb of prisoners and slaves) and there is branding  (trademarking of Salt Lake City) instead of beauty.

25. Israel’s men   as well as,  Israel’s warriors are turning their backs toward (abandoning; deserting) Jehovah,  in Salt Lake’s competition to  obtain Israel’s “Pledge of Allegiance”.

.

26. The gates (right to citizenship) of Zion” are  mourning (grieving; weeping)  and sighing (lamenting) because this generation of Israel’s people are treated (dealt-with; handled; managed) by their leaders as  worthless  (“good-for-nothing”; of no value)  and

worthless souls
Salt Lake’s General Authorities believe that Israel’s people are worthless (“Good for nothing”; of no value).
