Daughters of Zion Blessed
Posted: April 28, 2006
Isaiah 3:16-26 says, "Moreover the Lord saith, Because the daughters of Zion are haughty (Hebrew-meaning to be high), and walk with stretched forth necks and wanton eyes, walking and mincing as they go, and making a tinkling with their feet: v.16
Therefore the Lord will smite with a scab the crown of the head of the daughters of Zion, and the Lord will discover their secret parts. v.17
In this verse, the Lord is speaking about Israel and the church and tells us that he will discover (Hebrew - make naked) their secret parts. This is clearly the reproductive system of women. I have learned by experience that Jezebel inhabits women's reproductive system and it must be cast out. I am convinced that Jezebel is the cause of many miscarriages and wants to kill any apostle or prophet, as they are being formed in their mother's womb. In Exodus 23, God is speaking about an angel that was a guide for Israel and that same angel is a guide today for the body of Christ. These same words that are spoken of in Exodus 23:20-25 still apply today, "Behold, I send an Angel before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared. v.20
Beware of him, and obey his voice, provoke him not; for he will not pardon your transgressions: for my name is in him. v.21
But if thou shalt indeed obey his voice, and do all that I speak; then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto thine adversaries. v.22
For mine Angel shall go before thee, and bring thee in unto the Amorites, and the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Canaanites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites: and I will cut them off. v.23Thou shalt not bow down to their gods, nor serve them, nor do after their works: but thou shalt utterly overthrow them, and quite break down their images. v.24
And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee. v.25
There shall nothing cast their young, nor be barren, in thy land: the number of thy days I will fulfil." v.26
This verse tells us that there shall not be one miscarriage occurring, or one barren woman in the church when Jesus returns. We also see in verse 25 and 26 that miscarriages and barrenness is a sickness.
Isaiah 3 continued.
In that day the Lord will take away the bravery of their tinkling ornaments about their feet, and their cauls, and their round tires like the moon, v.18
The chains, and the bracelets, and the mufflers, v.19
The bonnets, and the ornaments of the legs, and the headbands, and the tablets, and the earrings, v.20
The rings, and nose jewels, v.21
The changeable suits of apparel, and the mantles, and the wimples, and the crisping pins, v.22
The glasses, and the fine linen, and the hoods, and the vails. v.23
And it shall come to pass, that instead of sweet smell there shall be stink; and instead of a girdle a rent; and instead of well set hair baldness; and instead of a stomacher a girding of sackcloth; and burning instead of beauty. v.24
Thy men shall fall by the sword, and thy mighty in the war. v.25
Although this is very difficult to accept and understand, but this verse clearly states that men (verse 8-because their tongue and their doings are against the Lord, to provoke the eyes of his glory) will die by the sword in war. I recall flying back from a trip prior to the Iraqi War. I said to Wally Edge, "God is telling me that we are getting ready to go to war with Iraq and men are going to die. It is God's judgment upon them."
And her gates shall lament and mourn; and she being desolate shall sit upon the ground." v.26
Isaiah 4:1-6 says, "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. v.1
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. v.2
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: v.3
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." v.4
In Acts 3:25-26 it tells us the purposes of Jesus Christ raised from the dead, that God sent him to bless us in turning every one of us from our iniquities. "Ye are the children of the prophets, and of the covenant which God made with our fathers, saying unto Abraham, And in thy seed shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed. v.25
Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities (Greek: poneria - meaning evil or wickedness)." v.26
Isaiah 4 continued.
"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. v.5
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." v.6
God bless you,
