6 He said to them: Isaiah aptly prophesied about you hypocrites, as it is written, 'This people honor me with [their] lips,
but their hearts are far removed from me.
7 It is in vain that they keep worshiping me, because they teach as doctrines commands of men (Mark 7).
ISAIAH CHAPTER 29
1 Woe to Ariel [meaning Altar hearth of God or Lion of God], to Ariel [The 1NC reserves], the town where David [The Lion of Judah, Jesus through the 1NC saints] encamped! [Past tense, his encampment finished on 2001Tishri30] Add year upon year, you people; let the festivals run the round.
2 And I have to make things tight for Ariel, and there must come to be mourning and lamentation, and she must become to me as the altar hearth of God [this being the metaphor employed. Where coals are tested by fire].
3 And I must encamp on all sides against you, and I must lay siege to you with a palisade and raise up against you siegeworks [because you have screwed up with the UN etc].
4 And you must become low so that you will speak from the very earth [rather than the heavens], and as from the dust your saying will sound low [the sayings of earthling man]. And like a spirit medium your voice must become even from the earth, and from the dust your own saying will chirp [speaking man's laws and ideas].
5 And the crowd of those strange to you [non saints in the Watchtower who take control because they can. God permits this because the 1NC saints screwed up with the UN] must become just like fine powder [vanish in the wind of the spirit], and the crowd of the tyrants [unsanctified self appointed rulers of the Watchtower - the bureaucrats] just like the chaff that is passing away [again vanishing in the wind of the spirit]. And it must occur in an instant, suddenly [when the wall of Jericho falls down].
6 From Jehovah of armies you will have attention [you who thought he was not paying attention] with thunder and with quaking and with a great sound [horns of Jericho], storm wind and tempest [first birth pang], and the flame of a devouring fire [at the second birth pang].
7 And it must occur just as in a dream, in a vision of the night, regarding the crowd of all the nations that are waging war against Ariel, even all those waging war against her, and the siege towers against her and those making things tight for her [the internal corruptors].
8 Yes, it must occur just as when someone hungry dreams and here he is eating, and he actually awakes and his soul is empty; and just as when someone thirsty dreams and here he is drinking, and he actually awakes and here he is tired and his soul is dried out [they will wake up and realise they have no new understanding of the bible]; thus [also in the same way] it will occur with the crowd of all the nations that are waging war against Mount Zion [administration of the LWs].
9 Linger, you men, and be amazed; blind yourselves, and be blinded. They have become intoxicated, but not with wine; they have moved unsteadily, but not because of intoxicating liquor [they are drunk with power but have no spirit baptism].
10 For upon you men [the 1NC reserves] Jehovah has poured a spirit of deep sleep [can you not stay awake one hour with me?]; and he closes your eyes, the prophets, and he has covered even your heads, the visionaries.
11 And for you men the vision of everything becomes like the words of the book that has been sealed up, which they give to someone knowing the writing [someone who knows the bible is in a word symbolic code, a Watchtower spy on the LWs], saying: Read this out loud, please, and he has to say: I am unable, for it is sealed up [he cannot decode it];
12 and the book must be given to someone that does not know writing [someone ignorant of word symbolism], saying: Read this out loud, please, and he has to say: I do not know writing at all [He cannot even get the literal meaning].
13 And Jehovah says: For the reason that this people have come near with their mouth, and they have glorified me merely with their lips, and they have removed their heart itself far away from me, and their fear toward me becomes men's commandment that is being taught [the whole worship system of the Watchtower has again become man's additional laws rather than God's law. So the JWs worship not God but their leaders just as the Jews did with the Pharisees],
14 therefore here I am, the One that will act wonderfully again with this people, in a wonderful manner and with something wonderful [revealing 3 more wonderful dimensions to the bible. For it has length breadth width and depth]; and the wisdom of their wise men must perish [wise in Watchtower terms], and the very understanding of their discreet men will conceal itself.
15 Woe to those who are going very deep in concealing counsel [coming] from Jehovah himself [they hide divine adivce from God through the LWs to them. They are the spiritual Myanmar Junta], and whose deeds have occurred in a dark place [the fallen ex-GNS2], while they say: Who is seeing us, and who is knowing of us? [doh! - they one who gave you your first breath and will determine when your last breath occurs]
16 The perversity of you men! Should the potter himself be accounted just like the clay? For should the thing made say respecting its maker: He did not make me? And does the very thing formed actually say respecting its former: He showed no understanding? [Yer, we know more than our maker - right?]
17 Is it not yet but a very little time [soon after the Watchtower is corrected] and Lebanon [Israel's neighbour, the water baptised non saints in the LWs] must be turned into an orchard and the orchard itself will be accounted just as a forest?
18 And in that day the deaf ones will certainly hear the words of the book [the word symbolic meanings of the bible], and out of the gloom and out of the darkness even the eyes of the blind ones will see.
19 And the meek ones will certainly increase their rejoicing in Jehovah himself, and even the poor ones of mankind will be joyful in the Holy One of Israel himself,
20 because the tyrant [the control freak wicked slave] must reach his end, and the bragger [the wide awake John Class, the exclusive channel for God's spirit, the ones who will never as a group go wrong, the ones who call themselves God's spirit directed organisation] must come to his finish, and all those keeping alert to do harm must be cut off,
21 those bringing a man into sin by [his] word, and those who lay bait even for the one reproving in the gate, and those who push aside the righteous one with empty arguments.
22 Therefore this is what Jehovah has said to the house of Jacob, he that redeemed Abraham: Jacob will not now be ashamed, nor will his own face now grow pale;
23 for when he sees his children [the younger generation of saints, the 2NC saints], the work of my hands, in the midst of him [the older generation of saints, the 1NC reserves], they will sanctify my name, and they will certainly sanctify the Holy One of Jacob, and the God of Israel they will regard with awe.
24 And those who are erring in [their] spirit will actually get to know understanding, and even those who are grumbling will learn instruction (Isaiah 29).
