Super Quick Bible Study: Seven Wives?

Isaiah 4 (NASB)
1For seven women will take hold of one man on that day, saying, “We will eat our own bread and wear our own clothes, only let us be called by your name; take away our disgrace!”

2On that day the Branch of YHWH will be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the earth will be the pride and the beauty of the survivors of Israel. 3And it will come about that the one who is left in Zion and remains behind in Jerusalem will be called holy—everyone who is recorded for life in Jerusalem. 4When the Lord has washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion and purged the bloodshed of Jerusalem from her midst, by the spirit of judgment and the spirit of burning, 5then YHWH will create over the entire area of Mount Zion and over her assemblies a cloud by day, and smoke, and the brightness of a flaming fire by night; for over all the glory will be a canopy. 6And there will be a shelter to give shade from the heat by day, and refuge and protection from the storm and the rain.

The first verse of this chapter technically should be the last verse of Isaiah 3, but I think Father Yah had it separated for a reason.

In two blog posts, The Biblical Symbolism of Male and Female and Puzzling Passages Made Plain: The Levite and His Concubine – Part 1, I state what the male (beast or Spirit) and female (the soul making choices) symbolize within Scripture. Here are some examples of the female symbolizing Israel and Judah:

Hosea 1 2 & 3
Ezekiel 16
Ezekiel 23

In those passages, Israel is seen as Yah’s bride who has become unfaithful. They were practicing religion abhorrent to His Instructions. Therefore paganism, or practices to influence the supernatural in one’s favor, are also symbolized by the female, because it is a result of a choice.

There is a thread of similarity between Isaiah 4:1, Zechariah 8:23, the parable of the Ten Virgins, and the seven Ecclesiae in Revelation 2-3. All of them deal with the soul’s choice to follow Yah and become a part of Him, symbolized by the marriage covenant. While Revelation is straight-forward, the parable requires one to understand the oil representing the Holy Spirit operating in a believer’s life. Isaiah 4:1, however, is not so obvious until you read verses 2-6, which speak of Yahshua, the branch of Jesse becoming the Branch of YHWH at the end of the age.

Seven women = seven believers, or groups of believers

Take hold of one man = one person, male or female, or a group who is heavy in the Spirit

We will eat our own bread = we will do our own version of the Word

Wear our own clothes = we will behave as we see fit (clothes symbolize character)

Only let us be called by your name = we want to be known as your people (name means nature, power, authority, cause, character)

Take away our disgrace = protect and care for us, tell us we are OK as we are

This has already happened given the tens of thousands of denominations today. During the end of days, frantic people will be searching high and low for those who have the Spirit upon them. It is a warning, just like the parable and the seven churches of Revelation: maintain your connection with the Spirit of the Most High God. You may become one of those persons those weak in faith seek out.

I am not the only one who has received this revelation:

Take this to the Father in prayer. Amen.
