RIM Chapter 52 verses 1-7

crisis
Poor baby!

The word imperative command, “Wake-up” is expressed by ‘wr in Hebrew. the root is widely attested in all Semitic languages with various meanings including Akkadian ‘r meaning: to awake; to be stirred-up; to be excited;  Arabian arra meaning: to be restless. To rouse oneself, “take action” fits here very well, because in Malachi “take-action”  means: “speak in court as a witness”… and in this particular case… for the prosecution. The word ‘wr refers especially to a condition of being emotionally stirred-up  (fired-up) to action.  The word for wake-up from slumber or sleep is usually expressed by qis. In other words,  the verb ‘wr refers, in particular,  to the  second stage of awareness which immediately follows waking-up (becoming conscious and aware), especially in the middle of some kind of “crisis”. Awareness comes first, quickly followed by “fight” or “flight”.   Isaiah function is, in part,  to awaken (provide a wake-up call)  for Israel’s readers concerning a legal-crisis (legal-dispute; legal-controversy) . The first stage of consciousness (awareness) will no doubt, be followed by a second stage , consisting of a range of  emotional-reactions (shock; anger; betrayal; disbelief; relief; gratitude) depending upon where one stands in relation to the crisis (legal-dispute; legal-controversy) . Israel’s People (rank and file Mormons) will feel suddenly relieved of spiritual deprivation and oppression they’ve suffered in obligatory-silence for so long , while zealous Melchizedek Priesthood leaders and their faithful fans will feel “Holy Terror” , confusion and anger because suddenly (without warning- “like a thief in the night”), someone has burst their “Mormon Bubble”,  and now…….there’s “hell” to pay.

 

royal robes
Israel….its time to put on you royal robe and be enthroned.

1. Wake-up! (get-up; be fired-up; be worked-up; be excited)  Wake-up! (be incited; be kindled; be stirred) Put on your robe of strength (power; boldness; majesty)…Zion (those who are descendants of David who’ve endured a long and painful thirst for “living Water”,i.e. “the Holy Spirit of God”)! Array yourselves in your robe of splendor, Jerusalem (source of God’s instruction in the way to “salvation” and the “peace of mind” that accompanies it), the City of those who are holy and free of idolatry and other defiling crimes, because “no-one” (not one soul) who enters your house (has intercourse with you; becomes your spouse; marries into your family),  whose habits  (mode of being; regular tendencies or practices) are reckoned (believed; thought; viewed; supposed; considered) to be uncircumcised (not dedicated to God; not having a token of the covenant; not separated from sin; not dedicated to Jehovah’s covenant) and impure (defiled; vile; base; mean; “bad’; abominable; offensive; contemptible; evil) will survive.

.

2. Behold (You see……) the General Priesthood leaders in Salt Lake City, who are now being thrown-out (shaken-off; tossed-out),  were each begotten (originated; engendered; pioneered; initiated) by  progenitors (ancestors; forefathers; forebearers; parents; founders) who were rubbish (waste material; trash; worthless; litter; refuse).  “Rise and shine” to enthronement,  in accordance with Jerusalem (source of instructions that show (point) the way to”safety” and the “peace of mind” that accompanies it). Behold (Look!; You see….). The General Authorities of Salt Lake City, who act as  your gatekeepers (Melchizedek priests who authorize baptism), will immediately  (at once; instantly; “lickety-split”; in the wink of an eye)   place a  yoke (tether; collar; team-harness) upon your necks…ye captive (hostage; slave; convict) daughters (citizens; natives or naturalized members) of Zion (Descendants of David’s lineage who’ve endured a long and painful thirst for “Living-Water”, i.e. the “Holy Spirit of God”).

sold 1
They have sold (traded) you in exchange for “Eternal Oblivion”!! (being forgotten forever;eternal extinction; eternal annihilation)

3. For thus saith the Lord (Jehovah).  This generation of Salt Lake Priesthood leaders has sold (traded) all of you into slavery, like merchandise (goods to be bought and sold; commodities)  for (in exchange for)  nothing” (non-existence; oblivion; nothingness; extinction; annihilation) therefore you will redeem them (buy them back ;consecrate them to God; avenge the blood they’ve shed; function as their nearest kin) without money.

.

4. Indeed, in the beginning (during the first Mormon generation; during the pioneer days) my people went-down (descended) into “EGYPT” (Mormonism’s Culture of Slavery and servitude) as “strangers” (sojourners; guests), but in the last days (at the “end”) Assyria” (Melchizedek Leadership’s  promise of unparalleled social and financial success guaranteed to men thru advancement in the Melchizedek Priesthood Organization) cheats ( acts dishonestly to gain an advantage over; appropriates Israel’s identity from; defrauds; victimizes) them.

Lucifer
“Light-Bearer”  (or “light-bringer”  – the meaning of the Latin combination“Lucifer” (lux +fero) . He earned the moniker originally for beguiling Adam and Eve into disregarding God’s command in the Garden and in the last days for defrauding Israel’s people into believing that he and his forces are the long-awaited “Light- bearers” and “light-bringers”.           …guess he forgot about the Sun/Son of God!

5. So now, what does all this have to do with the oracle uttered (revealed) by Jehovah’s mouth (messenger; prophet)? Indeed (as a matter of fact;  Well……) , my people have been taken (exploited; taken-away; misappropriated; seized; captured; gripped; stolen; devalued; charmed; captivated; enthralled; bewitched; hypnotized; deceived; duped; hoodwinked) for nothing (in exchange for becoming “nothings”;  for a “no-good”-reason).  The rulers (religious-leaders; presiding high-priests) of my Israelite people are constantly pointing to (directing everyone’s attention to)  the utterances (remarks; mutterings; comments; murmurings; words; statements; observations; declarations; pronouncements) of their Ba’als (lords;  masters; owners) in Salt Lake City as if these pronouncements from Salt Lake Headquarters are the utterances (commands; words; voice)  of Israel’s God, Jehovah.   And Salt Lake’s Priesthood leaders blaspheme (scorn) my name (character; reputation) all the time (routinely; constantly). Therefore, we can assume that they are aware of (can identify; recognize; know) the people (clan; tribe) who are exemplifing my name (character; nature).   So, now (at this time) I , myself, am the one foretelling (prophesying) to Israel’s People (rank and file Mormons) . Lo and behold (a new scene, situation; a new turn of events) …It is I! (Jehovah).

bear tidings
“Tidings” means: news, information, intelligence, word, reports, dispatches, notification, communication. As to whether the tidings are “good” or “not-so-good” depends entirely upon which team  (prosecution or defense) you are on,  in this latter-day controversy (lawsuit) .

7.  How “to the point” (appropriate; becoming; befitting; relevant; proper) are the feet (legal-foundations; lawful-rights; legal-principles; legal-grounds; theoretical or practical bases ) of those who “bear-tidings” (Arabic-“basar”: “to remove the surface of a thing”) concerning the Rocky Mountain Headquarters of the Mormon Church, coming from one who is reporting (announcing; describing; revealing; publishing; publicizing; broadcasting)   the “Deliverance” (“Salvation”; “Victory”) of Israel’s People (rank and file Mormons) and the one saying to Zion (Descendants of David’s lineage who’ve endured a long and debilitating thirst for “Living-Water”, i.e. the Holy Spirit of God), “Your God reigns” (“Your God is in control”; “Your God is running the show”; Your God occupies the throne; “Your God is in charge of everything”).
