42 And the time cometh that he shall manifest himself unto all nations, both unto the Jews (O Jerusalem Mormons) and also unto the Gentiles (Christians); and after he has manifested himself unto the Jews (O Jerusalem Mormons) and also unto the Gentiles (Christians), then he shall manifest himself unto the Gentiles (Christians) and also unto the Jews (O Jerusalem Mormons), and the last (Christians) shall be first, and the first (O Jerusalem Mormons) shall be last. (1Nep 13:42)
The Isaiah Story slowly gave up its mysteries as we began our sojourn to obey Jesus’ commandment to search Isaiah. Because of the traditions of men and the precepts of Mormonism, we believed the picture that portrayed a Mormon kingdom of God on the earth with the “living prophet” who would lead us to Zion where Jesus would descend in clouds of glory to the Mormon faithful. Decades of searching scripture and studying the sermons of Mormon prophets and apostles brought us no closer to understanding the events of the last days because none of them ever comprehended or understood the prophecies of Isaiah nor did they teach the church members the prophecies of Isaiah to prepare us for when He comes again. Even the commentaries written by Isaiah scholars didn’t help because their Mormon precepts prevented the pure waters from quenching our thirst.
Only after setting aside a lifetime of learning and letting go of our preconceived notions were we able to begin anew with the eyes of a child to read and understand Isaiah and the other holy prophets without the interpretations of men to desecrate and defile the pure waters of revelation. Oh what a story the true prophets have to tell! The quest that began in childhood to comprehend what the Old Testament prophets were writing was finally bearing fruit after years of fruitless toil. The Isaiah Story slowly rolled out the red carpet and every detail was testified of by prophet after prophet in the Word of God. God has an amazing story to tell us and we were finally seeing it on every page of our scriptures.
This paper will focus on a critical segment of the Great and Marvelous Work (GMW) when the Servant is rejected and killed by the Mormon establishment; He then takes his message and new scriptures to the NATIONS of the world. The resurrected Servant’s work begins with the Christians across the earth; then goes to every nation, kindred, tongue, and people. This will be the great gathering foretold in scripture as the righteous are gathered out from the ends of the earth while the Assyrian rains down terror upon all nations. In the meantime, the Mormons will be suffering double for their unbelief and open rebellion against the Servant, thus, the Mormons who were taught first will be the last to be gathered in after suffering for their iniquity.
We’ve selected a few examples to aid you in searching the scriptures. Ultimately, all we can do is guide you to the fountain of pure water with the KEYS we’ve provided. It’s up to you to fill your cup and quench your own thirst. We present these verses without bringing attention to any of the words or passages in order for you to enjoy this process of discovery. In the future, as you read and use these keys in searching the scriptures, you’ll recognize what the prophets are teaching.
1 At the same time, saith the Lord, will I be the God of all the families of Israel, and they shall be my people. 2 Thus saith the Lord, The people which were left of the sword found grace in the wilderness; even Israel, when I went to cause him to rest. 3 The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee. 4 Again I will build thee, and thou shalt be built, O virgin of Israel: thou shalt again be adorned with thy tabrets, and shalt go forth in the dances of them that make merry. 5 Thou shalt yet plant vines upon the mountains of Samaria: the planters shall plant, and shall eat them as common things. 6 For there shall be a day, that the watchmen upon the mount Ephraim shall cry, Arise ye, and let us go up to Zion unto the Lord our God. 7 For thus saith the Lord; Sing with gladness for Jacob, and shout among the chief of the nations: publish ye, praise ye, and say, O Lord, save thy people, the remnant of Israel. 8 Behold, I will bring them from the north country, and gather them from the coasts of the earth, and with them the blind and the lame, the woman with child and her that travaileth with child together: a great company shall return thither. 9 They shall come with weeping, and with supplications will I lead them: I will cause them to walk by the rivers of waters in a straight way, wherein they shall not stumble: for I am a father to Israel, and Ephraim is my firstborn. 10 ¶Hear the word of the Lord, O ye nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say, He that scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him, as a shepherd doth his flock 11 For the Lord hath redeemed Jacob, and ransomed him from the hand of him that was stronger than he 12 Therefore they shall come and sing in the height of Zion, and shall flow together to the goodness of the Lord, for wheat, and for wine, and for oil, and for the young of the flock and of the herd: and their soul shall be as a watered garden; and they shall not sorrow any more at all. 13 Then shall the virgin rejoice in the dance, both young men and old: for I will turn their mourning into joy, and will comfort them, and make them rejoice from their sorrow. 14 And I will satiate the soul of the priests with fatness, and my people shall be satisfied with my goodness, saith the Lord. 15 ¶Thus saith the Lord; A voice was heard in Ramah, lamentation, and bitter weeping; Rahel weeping for her children refused to be comforted for her children, because they were not.16 Thus saith the Lord; Refrain thy voice from weeping, and thine eyes from tears: for thy work shall be rewarded, saith the Lord; and they shall come again from the land of the enemy 17 And there is hope in thine end, saith the Lord, that thy children shall come again to their own border. (Jer 31:1-17)
1 Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! saith the Lord.2 Therefore thus saith the Lord God of Israel against the pastors that feed my people; Ye have scattered my flock, and driven them away, and have not visited them: behold, I will visit upon you the evil of your doings, saith the Lord.3 And I will gather the remnant of my flock out of all countries whither I have driven them, and will bring them again to their folds; and they shall be fruitful and increase.4 And I will set up shepherds over them which shall feed them: and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed, neither shall they be lacking, saith the Lord.5 ¶Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.6 In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, The Lord Our Righteousness.7 Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that they shall no more say, The Lord liveth, which brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt;8 But, The Lord liveth, which brought up and which led the seed of the house of Israel out of the north country, and from all countries whither I had driven them; and they shall dwell in their own land. (Jer 23:1-8)
10 ¶And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious. 11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea. 12 And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth. 13 The envy also of Ephraim shall depart, and the adversaries of Judah shall be cut off: Ephraim shall not envy Judah, and Judah shall not vex Ephraim. (Isa 11:10-13)
¶And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall beat off from the channel of the river unto the stream of Egypt, and ye shall be gathered one by one, O ye children of Israel.13 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the great trumpet shall be blown, and they shall come which were ready to perish in the land of Assyria, and the outcasts in the land of Egypt, and shall worship the Lord in the holy mount at Jerusalem. (Isa 27:12-13)
