Isaiah 4 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
4 And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel: only let us be called by thy name, to take away our reproach.
2 In that day shall the branch of the Lord be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the earth shall be excellent and comely for them that are escaped of Israel.
3 And it shall come to pass, that he that is left in Zion, and he that remaineth in Jerusalem, shall be called holy, even every one that is written among the living in Jerusalem:
4 when the Lord shall have washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and shall have purged the blood of Jerusalem from the midst thereof by the spirit of judgment, and by the spirit of burning.
5 And the Lord will create upon every dwelling place of mount Zion, and upon her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night: for upon all the glory shall be a defence.
6 And there shall be a tabernacle for a shadow in the daytime from the heat, and for a place of refuge, and for a covert from storm and from rain.
The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent’s meat. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith the Lord.
Dust shall be the serpent’s MEAT. Strong’s concordance shows that a serpent is a hypocrite or a wicked man. The English dictionary also shows this same thing. Meat is the spiritual food one feeds his mind. So now, what is it showing that dust is what the hypocrites or the wicked men EAT?
Dust thou art and to dust you shall return.
Come down, and sit in the dust, O virgin daughter of Babylon, sit on the ground: there is no throne, O daughter of the Chaldeans: for thou shalt no more be called tender and delicate.
Here we See God taking this hypocrite ‘lady’ or kingdom down to the ground, or dust. They are no longer going to be up in the spirit realm.
Adam became the very first serpent, when He decided he was going to be God and receive worship. This is that old serpent which deceived the Mother of all living, Eve. He took her into carnality, or LAW.
The DUST being the SERPENT’S meat, is showing that the natural or carnal interpretation of God’s word is what serpents or hypocrites believe and teach. They will always take God’s word down to a natural level and destroy the spiritual truth of it. This is almost all anyone ever hears, for they do listen to the natural mind of carnal men.
This very reason is why almost all truth is now lost to this last church, which Revelation shows to be naked, blind, miserable, poor and does not know it.
God said he will spew this last and worst church out of his mouth. Not one good thing is spoken about this seventh church.
In Scripture a nation and a church is spoken of as FEMALE OR A WOMAN.
In fact, all human flesh, or human beings are FEMALE TO GOD. So therefore all humans are referred to in scripture as WOMEN. So when a man is natural or carnal minded, he is speaking from his FLESH and is therefore forbidden to do so. When he stops a spiritual daughter of God from teaching, he is in opposition to God, and is the very one who needs to shut up.
Anyone who has the Holy Ghost or spirit of Christ in them, is able to speak from this inner MAN and receive true revelation from God, and then teach it to others. This is NOT about what we are in the DUST OR HUMAN BODY.
See, when men take this to the natural, they are serpents, eating the dust, or natural interpretation. They are carnal and cannot see spiritual truth. This is why most folks think a woman cannot preach or teach. But that is the DUST they are eating. The truth of this is that neither one can speak from their own human thoughts, for this is carnal.
To be carnally minded is DEATH. It is enemity to God. So now that I have cleared this up, let’s return to these rebellious wives. I have heard quite a few serpents, or carnal minded MEN preachers attack the verses in Isa 4. They go to this with their natural or carnal minds, take it to natural human women, and therefore always come up with a carnal lie. They dearly love what their carnal minds conjure up from verse one. They say seven natural women marry one man; and go on to surmise that men have become scarce of such junk.
That is the kind of mess men come up with when they interpret the scripture with their natural or human mind. This is the DUST THEY ARE EATING.
Since we showed that churches are referred to as WOMAN, we must interpret from this scriptural standpoint. In Revelation we find there are SEVEN CHURCHES. Yep, this is what it is all about….seven churches.
So who is this MAN that these seven churches take hold of?
Who do they claim to be married to? Jesus, or course. But listen to what they tell him: We will eat our own bread.
Now the serpents will tell you that this means they are going to go out, get a job, and pay for their own natural food. (see what the natural mind does to the truth of God? God said his word is SPIRITUAL and must be spiritually DISCERNED or understood.
These churches are literally telling Jesus that they will claim to be his wife, BUT they are not going to listen to his teachings and obey him. They are going to make up their own DOCTRINE and eat this junk and teach it to their ‘children’. This is precisely why church folks cannot and will not listen to the real truth when it is presented to them. They are not going to accept spiritual truth; They are not going to come in God’s chosen way. They are going to turn worship into entertainment and devil worship holidays and all such carnal junk for their flesh.
Then they told Jesus: we will wear our own apparel.
We are told in scripture to be COVERED with the Holy Ghost or spiritual covering of Jesus. But these ‘rebellious’ ‘wives’ are not going to do any such thing. They let Jesus know right away that they are going to do just as they please and be covered with their SINS, which they hold onto forever. These rebellious wives are never going to give up their sins and be covered in righteousness. They are in full rebellion to their ‘husband’.
These seven churches then tell Jesus: only let us be called by thy name, to take away our reproach.
Yes, even though they refuse to obey him in any way, they still want the name of being CHRISTIAN. They still want the recognition of being wife of Jesus. They are wife in their own foolish deception, only. They are not a true wife. They have refused to accept the word of this husband. They have refused to be covered with his covering, which is RIGHTEOUSNESS. They are listening to their real husband, satan, and saying his words, or eating his flesh. They are saying WE CAN NEVER BE CLEANSED FROM OUR SINS. We will keep our sins as long as we live, only then, let us go to heaven and be wife of Christ.
See, these foolish churches KNOW it is a reproach to not go by the name of being a Christian; so they think they can deceive Jesus into allowing them to continue parading around as a christian, minister, or such, for this gets them recognition in the community and also MONEY.
But at this time, when the last of these seven rebellious wives have taken hold of Jesus, we see that it is now time for the branch of the Lord to be beautiful and glorious, or the resurrection of the true Wife of God to be glorified and shown to this world. This wife will come from the ones who obeyed the true Husband, Jesus, and came out of that harlot woman, the seven churches. These have come out into the wilderness with our Lord and obey his Word, eating only HIS FLESH, OR WORDS.
These who remain in the Holy New Jerusalem will be HOLY. This is something that foolish virgin wanted no part of. They wanted to BUY AND SELL instead of GIVING the message of God out freely, as the bridegroom told his bride to do.
