RIM Chapter 59 verses 1-7

Sin Confession and Redemption

missing the mark
In Hebrew, “sin” is conceived as: “religious disqualification as a result of specific negative behavior”, i.e. “MISSING THE MARK” !

The Hebrew word for “Sin” is Chata-pronouncedkhaw-taw. In the broadest sense, “sin”, in the context of Isaiah’s writings, means “religious disqualification as a result of specific modes of human behavior”. The essential meaning of this definition is “to miss the mark”. The implication (suggestion) is that there are certain immutable (fixed; unchanging) laws which the human race is expected, infact, commanded to observe during its mortal existence. These divine laws governing man’s behavior are preserved in  the Torah (“Instruction”; the five books of Moses).  When man breaks (transgresses; infringes; goes-beyond-the-bounds of)  God’s laws, he is “religiously disqualified as a result of specific modes of human behavior”, i.e. “he Misses The Mark”. The Egyptians recognized the cosmic (universal) significance of Maat (order) that governs the totality of life. They understood that behavior contrary to Maat brought misfortune upon the doer. The Hebrew root chata’ designates negative conditions and conduct, especially with reference to human agents in a religious context. For the Hebrews, there was an obvious connection between sin and its consequences. Chatta’ th not only means  the “evil-deed”, but also its associated consequences.

"Sin" is conceived (imagined) as a sphere (bubble atmosphere surrounding the sinner, pregnant with calamity, which effects him and all others in his family and associates.
“Sin” is conceived (imagined; envisioned) as a seductive sphere (bubble; atmosphere) surrounding the sinner, “pregnant with calamity”, which negatively effects him and all others with whom he interacts, including family and associates.

In a very general sense, Sin is imagined as a “magnet-like” sphere surrounding the sinner, attracting and bringing calamity upon him in the course of time. Whoever surrounds himself with chatta’th must necessarily die. This “sphere of calamity” has collective effects. In the long run, it destroys not only the sinner, but his entire house (family; dynasty; lineage). Such sin is not only associated with the sinner on earth, “pregnant with disaster”, but,  in every case (especially in a transgression related to Holy-Rites, e.g.”idolatry”), visible in the sight of Jehovah, arousing His anger and provoking His paqadh (angry reaction against the sinner; punishment; visit). This kind of sin must be atoned for by a third-party (goel; redeemer) , who intervenes vicariously, intercedes and averts the consequences of death. The most momentous derivative of ht’ is “chet”.  It is conceived (imagined; perceived; thought of) as an irresistible evil -force transcending the course of history, encompassing “many” generations of people. Idolatry (idol-worship) is a frequent source of “Chet”. Idols (elilim) are images (public-images; “castles-in-the-sky”and fantasy-concepts, e.g. “Gospel-Restoration”; Melchizedek Priesthood Authority;  the “First Vision” of Joseph Smith; “LDS polygamous Temple Marriage”) that are  fashioned (brought into being) by men’s hands (powers), specifically as objects of worship. These  Mormon images and others like it secretly “take on lives of their own” and are sought after by Israel’s People (rank and file Mormons) as though “gripped by a hypnotic trance”. “No atonement can be made” for a multi-general religious disqualification like idolatry. Annihilation of the houses (lineages; dynasties; extended-families) entangled in idolatry even before birth (through family solidarity),  is the sad but inexorable (unstoppable; inevitable) consequence.

1. Surely (confidently, assuredly) the hand (power) of Jehovah is not too short (insufficient) to save Israel’s People nor are His ears too dull to hear them.

,

.

2. Rather, Israel’s iniquity (immorality; wickedness) has become the very thing that prevents(stops; hinders) every last one of them from being born again (coming forth) to acknowledge (confess) your (plural) God and all of their sins (transgressions; shortcomings; failings; mistakes; negative-conduct which religiously disqualifies them) that Salt Lake’s prophets have been hiding (keeping secret) from Israel’s People (rank and file Mormons). This is the true purpose and intention of Mormonism’s renowned (celebrated; famous; illustrious) presiding General Authorities.

.

.

3. Indeed (as a matter of fact; if truth be told) the hands (activities; doings; workings) of you (Salt Lake’s Melchizedek Priesthood Authorities)  are polluted (stained; defiled; desecrated) by the shedding of innocent blood  and the fingers (mechanisms of control) used by all you are  tainted (contaminated; ruined) by guilt (blood-guilt; culpability)  All of your ordinations (ordaining or conferring of holy orders) are performed for the sake (benefit; advancement) of your own public image. The tongues (slanders; enchantments; perjured-testimony) of each and every one of Salt Lake’s Melchizedek Priesthood Authorities is calculated to distract (turn away; re-direct; divert; draw away) your attention away from Jehovah.

.

.

4. There  is not a single man to reiterate (reaffirm; confirm the validity or correctness of ) “What Is Right” and there is no one high Priest in this generation of Melchizedek Priesthood Authorities who will execute judgment (condemn; pronounce a guilty sentence against) Salt Lake’s cover-up (smokescreen; “white-wash”; obfuscation; empty-show; facade; pretense; false front) regarding the “Abomination Of Desolation” into which they have transformed (converted; transfigured) Israel’s People (rank and file Mormons) along with the source (cause; origin; fountain; author ; agent) of falsity (idolatry; ruin; wickedness; evil; spiritual darkness; ungodliness) who  is begetting (generating; propagating) perversity (misery; worry; irksomeness) and false prophets who are promoting (encouraging; advocating; advancing; boosting) idolatry (hero worship; idol-worship) against Jehovah.

.

.

5. Eggs (developing embryos) of hissing vipers (poisonous serpents who are casting magical spells on the people) who desire to crush the protective shells of their young and undermine (subvert; sabotage; injure; kill) them. They weave (spin) themselves a spider-web (priesthood network) pointing everyone (hoodwinking everyone; deluding everyone; defrauding everyone ) into devouring (taking in; swindling ; deceiving) their own young (children; offspring) . They are dying,  already dead and stepped on once their shell (natural protective outer-covering) is broken, but if it manages to survive this,  a “Death-Adder” (one of the most venomous snakes in the world) hatches out.

.

.

6. Their web (network; nexus; complex; webwork; system of interconnected people) is not for clothing nor is it a garment made from their deeds. Their deeds are evil , they are the  works of violence by their own hands (sorcerous powers and influence).

.

.

7. They take pleasure in (are reconciled with; delight themselves in) their steps (measures; courses; courses of action; tactics; scheme; strategy; policy; campaign; game plan; battle plans) for the sake of evil, to shed innocent blood because of the things they think (imagine; visualize) in their perverted (corrupt; twisted) minds,  Imaginations (visualizations; daydreams) of (1) “evil”, (2) “ruin” and (3) “destruction” coupled with ways (procedures; courses; pathways; methods; means) to realize them (make them happen).
