September 2015 Just 4 Months left before the Surprise attack so will you be ready? Understanding Isaiah #1 Some Keys to knowledge you should have.   Isaiah 2 at bottom.

To understand Isaiah we must put away our traditions. We must realize
how he compiled his writings. They are not in chronological order.
He spoke in
Allegories, (where people, things, have a symbolic meaning). Metaphors, (where one thing is spoken as if it were another). Similitude's, (in likeness, or resemblance).
And Analogies, (the inference that certain resemblance's
imply further similarity).

That takes some thinking! A person cannot casually read Isaiah and know the real meaning.
He saw the apostasy of the people.

The resulting judgments upon them. Their repentance, and finally the blessings which come from following God's commandments.

Just like the Sun returns each morning and the moon at night, he saw the evolution of his race for thousands of years into the future. Things in nature repeat themselves many times. So what he wrote for his lifetime would again happen in the future someday again. We can apply his words to our time by just changing a few words; their meaning stays the same. When he lived in Palestine in 783-700 BC The enemy to their East and North was Assyria. Our enemy today to the North-East is called Russia. So read Isaiah and
think of Russia, when you see the name Assyria.

When you read the word "
Hand" or 'Arm' it means the Lord's servant. The hand of judgment; or the hand of righteousness. The servant the Lord uses to bring judgement, death, woe; or the servant the Lord uses to bring righteousness and blessings.    See 40:10-11; 63: 5 ; 51:5 ; 51: 9

In Jeremiah we read where God calls King Nebuchadnezzar from Babylon, his servant: "Behold, I will send and take all the families of the north, saith the LORD, and Nebuchadrezzar the king of Babylon, my servant, and will bring them against this land, and against the inhabitants thereof, and against all these nations round about, and will utterly destroy them, and make them an astonishment, and an hissing, and perpetual desolations."    Jeremiah 25: 9

"IN the third year of the reign of Jehoiakim king of Judah came Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon unto Jerusalem, and besieged it.
And the Lord gave Jehoiakim king of Judah into his hand, (servant) with part of the vessels of the house of God: (the Temple destroyed) which he carried into the land of Shinar to the house of his god; and he brought the vessels into the treasure house of his god."   Daniel 1:1-2

The siege against Jerusalem began in 605 BC. When it fell and the fight was over it was 586 BC. A long 19 year series of battles. We won't have to fight that long. Keep reading and you will see that God calls Russia to attack the USA and other Nations to start World War III.

God warned JerUSAlem, just like I have been telling people on my radio programs, the attack is coming here. We read:
"For it came to pass in the commencement of the first year of the reign of Zedekiah, king of Judah, my father, Lehi, having dwelt at Jerusalem in all his days;
and in that same year there came many prophets, prophesying unto the people that they must repent, or the great city Jerusalem must be destroyed. 
5 Wherefore it came to pass that my father, Lehi, as he went forth prayed unto the Lord, yea, even with all his heart, in behalf of his people."   1 Nephi 1: 4-5

Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Daniel, and a bunch of other prophets including Lehi were in Jerusalem at the same time. Jeremiah wrote to Daniel after he was captured and taken prisoner to Babylon. We read: "NOW these are the words of the letter that Jeremiah the prophet sent from Jerusalem unto the residue of the elders which were carried away captives, and to the priests, and to the prophets, and to all the people whom Nebuchadnezzar had carried away captive from Jerusalem to Babylon."   Jeremiah 29: 1    (God used him, like he will use Russia)

I can get carried away myself; I have to remember that we are to look at Isaiah.
use of trees, and plants really means classes of people. click 'Oaks' are the leaders and popular peoples. 'Cedars' are the rich people and politicians. Sycamore trees are 'Jews.' Where 'trees' are people, 'forests' are a lot of trees = cities. Grass means the populations in mass. When we read of the burning, or fire it means Assyria or Russia.

An example like this: "Hast thou not heard long ago, how I have done it; and of ancient times, that I have formed it? now have I brought it to pass, that thou shouldest be to lay waste defenced cities into ruinous heaps.
27 Therefore
their inhabitants were of small power, they were dismayed and confounded: they were as the grass of the field, and as the green herb, as the grass on the housetops, and as corn blasted before it be grown up."    Isaiah 37:26-27

In Amos we read that Israel will be sifted as corn: "For, lo, I will command, and I will sift the house of Israel among all nations, like as corn is sifted in a sieve, yet shall not the least grain fall upon the earth.
All the sinners of my people shall die by the sword, which say, The evil shall not overtake nor prevent us."    Amos 9: 9-10

So 'Israel' as a nation will be sifted among all the nations of the world, and the sinners will be blasted like the corn is blasted before it grows up. CLICK HERE to learn whom Israel really is. Israel is "white." The "White" Nations today. 

When Lehi left Jerusalem about 600 BC. He took copies of Isaiah's writings with them. About 1000 years later the Prophet Mormon said:

"Search the prophecies of Isaiah. Behold, I cannot write them. Yea, behold I say unto you, that those saints who have gone before me, who have possessed this land, shall cry, yea, even from the dust will they cry unto the Lord; and as the Lord liveth he will remember the covenant which he hath made with them."    Mormon 8: 23

Jesus told the Nephites when he visited them
: "AND now, behold, I say unto you, that ye ought to search these things. Yea, a commandment I give unto you that ye search these things diligently; for great are the words of Isaiah.
     (We have been
commanded to search and study Isaiah.)
For surely he spake as touching all things concerning my people which are of the house of Israel; therefore it must needs be that he must speak also to the Gentiles.
house' of Israel means all 12 tribes. 'Israel' means just 10 tribes.) 
3 And all things that he spake have been
and shall be, even according to the words which he spake. (Israel means the 10 tribes, 'house' = all 12.)

4 Therefore give heed to my words; write the things which I have told you; and according to the time and the will of the Father they shall go forth unto the Gentiles.
5 And
whosoever will hearken unto my words and repenteth and is baptized, the same shall be saved. Search the prophets, for many there be that testify of these things. (hear-ken means hear-KEN-ship, the seed of Jacob)

6 And now it came to pass that when Jesus had said these words he said unto them again, after he had expounded all the scriptures unto them which they had received, he said unto them: Behold, other scriptures I would that ye should write, that ye have not."  3 Nephi 23: 1-6

"And now I write some of the words of Isaiah, that whoso of my people shall see these words may lift up their hearts and rejoice for all men. Now these are the words, and ye may liken them unto you and unto all men."  2 Nephi 11: 8

"And the loftiness of man shall be bowed down, and the haughtiness of men shall be made low; and the Lord alone shall be exalted in that day.
And the idols he shall utterly abolish. (Movie idols and music stars.)
And they shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, for the fear of the Lord shall come upon them and the glory of his majesty shall smite them, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth."
      2 Nephi 12: 17-19

We have been commanded to search and study Isaiah; and liken them to ourselves and unto all men. So my study of Isaiah shall be shared with you that you may learn to live.
The 66 Chapters of Isaiah has about 75 or 80% about our time in the last days, and the Millennium.

In "1823" Joseph Smith was told by the Angel Moroni that Isaiah Chapter 11 was about to be fulfilled. "September 21, 1823" (See Joseph Smith History 1:36-40)

"After telling me these things, he commenced quoting the prophecies of the Old Testament.
He (Moroni) first quoted part of the third chapter of Malachi; and he quoted also the fourth or last chapter of the same prophecy, though with a little variation from the way it reads in our Bibles. Instead of quoting the first verse as it reads in our books, he quoted it thus:

37 For behold, the day cometh that shall burn as an oven, and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly shall burn as stubble; for they that come shall burn them, saith the Lord of Hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.
38 And again,
he quoted the fifth verse thus: Behold, I will reveal unto you the Priesthood, by the hand of Elijah the prophet, before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord.

39 He also quoted the next verse differently: And he shall plant in the hearts of the children the promises made to the fathers, and the hearts of the children shall turn to their fathers.
If it were not so, the whole earth would be utterly wasted at his coming.
In addition to these, he quoted the eleventh (11) chapter of Isaiah, saying that it was about to be fulfilled. He quoted also the third chapter of Acts, twenty-second and twenty-third verses, precisely as they stand in our New Testament. He said that that prophet was Christ; but the day had not yet come when "they who would not hear his voice should be cut off (killed) from among the people," but soon would come." Joseph Smith History 1: 36-40 in The Pearl of Great Price.       CLICK HERE to learn more about Elijah.

In Isaiah 11 we read: "The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.
7 And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together:
and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.
8 And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice' den.
They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea."   Isaiah 11: 6-9
  (That above speaks of the Millennium,
and it is only chapter 11)

   "Mountains" are 'kingdoms' in Isaiah; "Hills" are states and cities.

"And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain (Kingdom) of the LORD'S house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.
3 And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the
mountain (Kingdom) of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion (USA) shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from JerUSAlem. (The New JerUSAlem; see Revelation 21: 10-11)

4 And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. (That is during the Millennium.)
O house of Jacob, come ye, and let us walk in the light of the LORD." Isaiah 2:2-5
  (Do you know who the
house of Jacob is yet? All of the 12 tribes.)

Now you tell me what is grass? A Mountain, hill? When you read: 'Jacob' it means the descendants of the "10 Tribes" of Jacob-Israel. When you see 'Judah' it means Jews and Levites. Jerusalem usually means OLD Jerusalem. Zion means the USA. Let's read Isaiah again:

    If it is JerUSAlem it also means the USA.

  "The voice said, Cry. And he said, What shall I cry? All flesh is grass, and all the goodliness thereof is as the flower of the field:
The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: because the spirit of the LORD bloweth upon it: surely the people is grass. (The grass gets burned!)
8 The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.
  (bloweth on a
grass fire, and it gets hotter.)

9 O Zion, that bringest good tidings, get thee up into the high mountain; (Kingdom) O JerUSAlem, that bringest good tidings, lift up thy voice with strength; lift it up, be not afraid; say unto the cities of Judah, Behold your God! (A mountain is kingdom. A high mountain is the Kingdom of God because it is high! The highest is at the top!)

10 Behold, the Lord GOD will come with strong hand, (servant) and his arm (servant) shall rule for him: behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him.
He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, (servant) and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young." Isaiah 40: 6-11      (hand-arm = servant)

"And I will turn my hand (servant = Russia) upon thee, and purely purge away thy dross, (crud) and take away all thy tin: (common folks)
26 And I will restore thy judges as at the first, and thy counsellors as at the beginning:
afterward thou shalt be called, The city of righteousness, the faithful city.

27 Zion shall be redeemed with judgment, and her converts with righteousness.
And the destruction of the transgressors and of the sinners shall be together, and they that forsake the LORD shall be consumed.

29 For they shall be ashamed of the oaks (leaders and popular peoples) which ye have desired, and ye shall be confounded for the gardens (kind of friends) that ye have chosen.
   (Do you remember what 'Oaks" are?)
30 For ye shall be
as an oak whose leaf fadeth, (leaders who misled you) and as a garden that hath no water.   (Friends who will forsake you.)
31 And the strong shall be as tow, and the maker of it as a spark,
and they shall both burn together, and none shall quench them." (Both will burn) Isaiah 1:25-31
   (Those are metaphors, analogies,

Some listeners on my radio programs get angry when I say that only good English speaking Christian "White" people should gather to Zion. That blacks should go back to Africa.
I study Isaiah, and he said:
Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it.
10 For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall
not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.
  (Because of so much fallout in the sky.)

11 And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud (Oaks) to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible. 
I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir.    (Few "men" will be left alive!)

13 Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the LORD of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger. (There will be BIG 'holes' where the earth is removed when bombs hit. Some holes can be a mile across, and hundreds of feet deep.)

14 And it shall be as the chased roe, (deer) and as a sheep that no man taketh up: they shall every man turn to his own people, and flee every one into his own land."
back to Africa, Mexicans to Mexico, Asians to Asia.)   Isaiah 13:9-14

Chapter 13 begins talking about Babylon. Know that Babylon is a metaphor for the financial capitols of the world. New York, London, Rome, where wealth, $$ is amassed. And so we read:

"THE burden ($) of Babylon, which Isaiah the son of Amoz did see.
2 Lift ye up a
banner (Flag) upon the high mountain, (Kingdom of God) exalt the voice (Announce) unto them, shake the hand, (servant) that they may go into the gates (Ports) of the nobles. ("White Israel".)

3 I have commanded my sanctified ones, (prophets) I have also called my mighty ones for mine anger, even them that rejoice in my highness.
4 The noise of a
multitude (people) in the mountains, (kingdoms of the world) like as of a great people; (a Billion white's around the world) a tumultuous noise of the kingdoms of nations gathered together: the LORD of hosts mustereth the host of the battle. (to begin World War III)

5 They (Russians) come from a far country, from the end of heaven, (top of the earth) even the LORD, and the weapons of his indignation, to destroy the whole land.
      (of Babylon, New York, London, and $ of the world.)

Howl ye; for the day of the LORD is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty. (As God commands.)

7 Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man's heart shall melt:
And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames. (As grass, that burns up.

In 7 different chapters he talks about a woman in travail, pains, just like Paul does in 1 Thessalonians 5: 3 When it happens, there is no escape.)

9 Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it." (Idols of wealth, music, queers, murders and Sabbath breakers will die.) CLICK HERE Liars say the Bible is true.

   We have read Chapters 10-14 above, so we continue with:

"15 Every one that is found shall be thrust through; and every one that is joined unto them shall fall
by the sword. (Megaton warheads.)
Their children also shall be dashed to pieces before their eyes; (blown to bits) their houses shall be spoiled, and their wives ravished.

17 Behold, I will stir up the Medes (Iran) against them, which shall not regard silver; and as for gold, they shall not delight in it. (You can't eat gold, they will wish they had their food supply stored to eat.)
Their bows (arrows = missiles) also shall dash the young men to pieces; and they shall have no pity on the fruit of the womb; (pregnant women are very much harmed by radiation) their eye shall not spare children. (Just as kids can't take very much radiation, young cells die.)

19 And Babylon, (New York, London, Rome, Brussels Belgium$) the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldees' excellency, shall be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah. (Sodom's queers in every nation shall burn!)

20 It shall never be inhabited, (Saddam will get nuked in Babylon Iraq) neither shall it be dwelt in from generation to generation: neither shall the Arabian pitch tent there; neither shall the shepherds make their fold there. (To much residual radiation from the fallout in Iraq.)

21 But wild beasts of the desert shall lie there; and their houses shall be full of doleful creatures; and owls shall dwell there, and satyrs shall dance there.
22 And the wild beasts of the
islands (British Isles) shall cry in their desolate houses, and dragons (China) in their pleasant palaces: and her time is near to come, and her days shall not be prolonged."
    Isaiah 13: 1-22   CLICK HERE to learn about (China.)

"And what will ye do in the day of visitation,
and in the desolation which shall come from far? to whom will ye flee for help? and where will ye leave your glory?
Without me they shall bow down under the prisoners, and they shall fall under the slain. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still. (His hand 'servant' is warning you now.)

5 O Assyrian, (Russian) the rod of mine anger, and the staff in their hand is mine indignation. (His hand 'servant' Russia brings war.)
I will send him against an hypocritical nation, (USA) and against the people of my wrath will I give him a charge, to take the spoil, and to take the prey, and to tread them down like the mire of the streets.
     (Remember in the 4th. paragraph from the top of this, I said that 'hand' means 'servant'; good or
bad. Judgment or Blessing.)

(Webster's Dictionary say's A hypocrite is:
"someone who pretends to be virtuous, etc. without really being so." So lets realize that there are 60 minutes in 1 hour. In 10 hours are 600 minutes. If you sit on the toilet 2 minutes each day = 730 minutes per year. The New Testament can be read in 10 hours or 600 minutes. So in 11 months it can be read sitting on the toilet.
   Read 20 minutes per day and read it in 1 month. You hypocrites! )

7 Howbeit he meaneth not so, neither doth his heart think so; but it is in his (Russian) heart to destroy and cut off nations not a few."         Isaiah 10: 3-7
