Reading Isaiah’s Mind- Chapter Twenty Two – verses 1 – 12

A prophecy about Jerusalem

The name Jerusalem is a combination of two words (1) “Jeru” is derived from the Hebrew root-verb yara meaning: to instruct; to teach; to proclaim, and (2)  “salem” originating from shalom –pronounced shaw-lome, meaning: welfare; friendship; wholeness; soundness; peace and salvation.

Jerusalem Temple
The temple is considered to be The world’s  “Navel” (point of attachment of the umbilical cord which furnishes nutrients by the mother)  to a developing human offspring (unborn baby or child).

Historically, Jerusalem is the ancient headquarters for the Old-Testament Jehovah cult (worship) and religion. Jehovah is “the” (exclusive; one and only; sole)  God of Israel’s people . Jerusalem is also a synonym for Zion , though Zion is found almost exclusively in poetry,  Jerusalem is found in both poetry and prose. In/thru Jerusalem (Jehovah’s holy-headquarters; Jehovah’s  holy-nerve center; Jehovah’s holy-command-post; Jehovah’s holy-main office; Jehovah’s holy-center of operations; Jehovah’s holy-base of operations;   Jehovah’s holy center-place;  Jehovah’s holy-point of concentration),  the “Word of God”  was housed (preserved; cherished; adored; held-dear; loved; treasured; prized)   forever for  the House of Israel. Some have defined Jerusalem as the “Navel” (umbilicus; source of spiritual-nourishment; spiritual-food; spiritual-provender) for the world.  In Jerusalem, Israel’s first permanent Temple was constructed by Solomon to-house (to-accommodate; to-quarter; to-shelter; to-preserve; to-have and to-hold) the the “Word-of-God” contained in the  “Ark-of-the-Covenant”.

In Jerusalem, Israel’s God established his law (government; authority) . Jerusalem is Israel’s official (ceremonial; formal; solemn) capitol. Jerusalem prophets received the  “Word” (command; law)  of God and that  “Word” became the-law (the-government; the-commandment; the-authority; the-presidency; the-supremacy; the-direction; the-power)  for faithful Jews world-wide. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints head-quartered in Salt Lake City, Utah fraudulently (dishonestly; deceitfully ; falsely) claims to be the Latter-day embodiment (incarnation; personification; epitome; exemplification;  restoration) of Jehovah’s government (word; commandment; presiding-authority; presidency; supremacy; direction; power) established in ancient Jerusalem. The deception they are committing consists of fraudulently claiming that God has restored to the world, His Word (commands; presiding-authority; supremacy; presidency; direction), which was taken from the earth resulting from the “Dark-Ages”. What Salt Lake’s priesthood authorities hope to do is to convince Israelites throughpout the world that Salt Lake’s Melchizedek High-Priests have the authority that God took away. This is a lie.  God’s instruction has never been taken away from the earth. It is now and has been always been recorded and circulated to the family of man.  The Old Testament laws and commandments revealed by God to His prophets has never been taken from the earth. Salt Lake’s deceiving prophets claim that the words of Salt Lake’s prophets ARE Gods words and that the words of Salt Lake’s prophets supercede (override; overrule; replace; supplant; set-aside; annul; take the place of)  the words already given by Jehovah and contained in the Ark of the Covenant and in the Old testament Torah (instruction). Their crime is fraud:

(1) “A knowing misrepresentation of the truth or the concealment of a material fact to induce another to act to his or her own detriment. (2) A misrepresentation made recklessly without belief in its truth to induce another to act. (3) Unconsciopnable dealing esp. in contract (covenantal; legally-binding) law; unfair use of power arising from the parties (ones who take-part in the covenantal contract) relative positions and resulting in an unconscionable bargain. – Black’s Law Dictionary eighth Edition 2004.
