The Isaiah Story

adminThe Isaiah Story

Unexpectedly it happened. It had not been anticipated, predicted, or foreseen. The light was exquisite as the best of spring days are apt to be; only more so. Much more so! The grass in the meadow was tall and thick up to my knees and the cobblestone stream at my left was clear and sang sweetly as the water flowed past me and light danced upon the undulating ripples. The stones at the bottom of the streambed spoke to me; though I couldn’t understand their words those long decades ago. The imperial and majestic trees in the distance were calling out to me as well, and the sweetness of the air was alive. Then it happened— and everything else thereafter changed. Ineffable. Indescribable. Unutterable. Unspeakable. Life has never been the same since that day!

The journey began as suddenly as a breath taken deeply when one is surprised or startled, and it led inexorably and unavoidably to this narrate— This paper— This report— This day— These posts were no accident. They were the design of something created and set in motion decades ago. Then line upon line, page by page, season after season, as weeks, then months, then years, and decades passed away trying to understand all that was given in that ineffable encounter. Each person involved with this effort has their own story! All have received abundantly! We in turn freely share this gift with everyone!

1 Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.

2 Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.

3 Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David.

4 Behold, I have given him for a witness to the people, a leader and commander to the people.

5 Behold, thou shalt call a nation that thou knowest not, and nations that knew not thee shall run unto thee because of the Lord thy God, and for the Holy One of Israel; for he hath glorified thee.

6 Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:

7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.

8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.

9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

10 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:

11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

12 For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.

13 Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the Lord for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off. (Isa 55:1-13)

An Essay of Critical Import

I have not commanded you to come up hither to trifle with the words which I shall speak, but that you should hearken unto me, and open your ears that ye may hear, and your hearts that ye may understand, and your minds that the mysteries of God may be unfolded to your view. King Benjamin lays out many mysteries in his dissertation to the people. “…many signs, and wonders, and types, and shadows showed he unto them concerning his coming…”

This blog has given you the mysteries of the scriptures revealed as plainly as can be written. Jesus’ story will be repeated at the end of days and no one will believe it; no one is talking about it. We, the members of the Mormon Church, are expecting Jesus to descend in clouds of glory as if that is our reward for not drinking coffee and for being too busy to search the scriptures because we’re too busy going to the temple and doing endless genealogies that Paul warns us NOT to do.

As the five unwise virgins missed the coming of the Bridegroom because they were too busy buying more oil for their lamps, the Bridegroom came and turned them away saying, “I know you not.”  Jesus has specifically given the holders of the Book of Mormon, A commandment I give unto you that ye search these things diligently; for great are the words of Isaiah.  The Bridegroom will come and He will be rejected by the “O Jerusalem” Mormon people as testified by Isaiah and the holy prophets.  This commandment to study Isaiah is speaking directly to the Mormons who ignorantly turn a blind eye and a deaf ear and claim, “all is well in Zion; yea, Zion prospereth, all is well, or so they say!!  The book of Isaiah is one of the greatest gifts we have to measure truth and thwart false precepts and false visions, not only from the Pharisaic leaders of our day, but ALL the ‘other voices’ who claim their allegiance to Jesus via Joseph Smith.  Jesus warns us, “And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.”  Our only SAFE and TRUE VOICE is in the Word of God.  Isaiah’s words and prophecies of the last days are great indeed.

How on earth can we pull out one line here and one line there from the scriptures and build doctrinal foundations on which we depend, then defend those foundations WITHOUT INGESTING THE SCRIPTURES AS A WHOLE? Alma warns, “Behold, the scriptures are before you; if ye will wrest them it shall be to your own destruction.” And so it shall be when we do not expound and bring all scripture into one…the holy prophets tell just one story. This blog has given you this “One Story.” He will come one last time to finish his work and judge the world. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end.”

The war in heaven, that we so aptly misjudge, will take place here on earth. The Father’s Great and Marvelous Work is the judgment day. Because of the doctrine of eternal lives, we are all here one last time; a day when all mankind can choose God their Father or Satan their father; to recognize the power of God and His teachings OR choose to allow our traditions to weigh us down as if we are stuck in quicksand and cannot think or move on our own as “the devil cheateth their souls, and leadeth them away carefully down to hell.”

Many may think or even declare that as Jesus walked the dusty roads of Palestine, they would have believed and followed Him.  Think again!  Being cast out of the synagogue (church) and shunned by your closest friends and being considered evil, was not what many chose. Few had the courage to drop the rules of the established church. Few had the courage to actually say, “I don’t believe in these brethren and the words and rules under which I’m constrained.” As He came before, He will come again. “What has been, shall be.”

God our Father has ALWAYS provided Holy Prophets to declare His Word. Throughout the history of mankind, God has ALWAYS warned us first and provided ‘the way’ to avoid calamities before the destruction. These holy prophets have ALWAYS gone against the “establishment” or “church.” God has ALWAYS given us patterns within holy writ to open our eyes and SEE HOW GOD WORKS. We must ponder the walk of these prophets of God and how they stood up against the entrenched system of their day. Here are but a few: Jeremiah.  Isaiah.  Lehi.  Abinadi- as the so-called righteous people bound him.  Mormon.  John the Beloved.  Alma the Elder- as he fled Noah’s court.  Amulek- who stood up against the wickedness of his own people.  Abraham.  The sons of Mosiah- as they went among the Lamanites.  Moses.  Ether.  Holy Jaredite prophets who were all killed.  Paul.  Peter.  The brother of Jared.  Ezekiel.  Amos.  Micah.  John the Baptist.  JESUS HIMSELF.

As the war between God and Satan is concluded here on earth, ALL will stand before the Father at the Great and Last Judgment Day. EVERY knee shall bow and everyone will easily know for themselves whether they chose God or Satan. Those who choose God the Father will be rewarded to climb higher on Jacob’s ladder as they follow in His footsteps. Those who choose the father of lies and hold onto his oaths and covenants, traditions, rules, and priestcraft, will receive their just reward and descend lower toward the lake of unquenchable fire. This all sounds easy, too easy doesn’t it? Time will tell.

Closing Thoughts

This blog has been our report, yet “Who hath believed our report?” (Isa 53:1) The asleep “O Jerusalem” Mormons will never believe our words. They have been so deeply indoctrinated by a lifetime of “follow the prophet” rather than following Jesus, and they trust so completely in the arm of flesh rather than trusting in God’s Word, that we fear our efforts have been in vain— Nevertheless, we have been faithful to the charge that was assigned to share the mysteries of the scriptures, expose the Strong Delusion, and teach the Isaiah Story! When The Great and Marvelous Work commences, they will be left without excuse, pretext, or defense for their ignorance.

20 That they may see, and know, and consider, and understand together, that the hand of the Lord hath done this, and the Holy One of Israel hath created it.

21 Produce your cause, saith the Lord; bring forth your strong reasons, saith the King of Jacob.

22 Let them bring them forth, and shew us what shall happen: let them shew the former things, what they be, that we may consider them, and know the latter end of them; or declare us things for to come. (Isa 41:20-22)

How long O Lord?

8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me. 9 ¶And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not. 10 Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed. 11 Then said I, Lord, how long? And he answered, Until the cities be wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land be utterly desolate, 12 And the Lord have removed men far away, and there be a great forsaking in the midst of the land. (Isa 6:8-12)

And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them.

They shall be turned back, they shall be greatly ashamed, that trust in graven images, that say to the molten images, Ye are our gods. (Isa 42:16-17)
