The reason why our Creator sent one servant at this time to restore all things is by His design.

It is so that there would be one source for what He is restoring and not a bunch of differing opinions to choose from.

And He gave us His word to identify this one servant so that we could know who he is when He sent him.

If you believe His word, then you would believe and know that He has sent me.

And since He has sent me, then He has put His word in my mouth because His word says so.

It really is all boiling down to believing His word that His Son testified to.

I received an e-mail from a person asking me about Isaiah 4:1 and this prompted me to consider this verse further than I have in the past.

As with much of the scriptures there are some translation errors that make the verse read differently than it does.

Here is what the verse says;

Isa 4:1

1 In that day seven women will lay hold of one man who will say; eat bread and clothe yourselves with His garment and be you only called by His name to take away your reproach.

The King James says that it says;

4:1 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.

The words "we will" and "our own" and such were added by the translators.

The word that they translated as "shall take hold of" is used 290 times in the scriptures with a variety of uses.

It is the word that is translated as "be of good courage" in some places and it is even translated as "hardened" as in YEHWEH hardened Pharaoh's heart.

But in these uses it is used with different Hebrew grammatical notations than here in Isaiah 4.

A place where it is used with the same grammatical notations as in this verse in Isaiah is found in Genesis 19.

It is found in the story of Sodom and Gomorrah and Lot and his family delaying their departure;

Gen 19:16

16 And they tarried so the men "LAID A HOLD OF" (or took) his hand, and his wife's hand, and his two daughter's hand; YEHWEH was merciful to them and they brought them forth and set them outside of the city.

Where this word is used as to be strong or to be of good courage it is a condition of being strengthened or firmed up.

Even when it was used to describe YEHWEH hardening Pharaoh's heart it was a matter of strengthening of firming up his pride and arrogance that he had in his heart.

In this example of the two angels leading them out by the hand they are doing so to press them to get going with firmness.

But it is not used in the sense of seizing them or capturing them.

It is a matter of grabbing firmly to.

In how it is used in this verse and in Isaiah it is a matter of laying hold of another.

Understanding Isaiah 4:1 is a matter of understanding that the 7 women are a prophecy concerning Yehshua's prophecy of the 7 groups of called out ones in the book of Revelation.

The word church means the called out ones.

These 7 groups are the 7 women that Isaiah is prophesying about.

The Revelation of Yehshua described 7 different groups with 7 different sets of circumstances to overcome and He compliments them in their areas where they are strong.

He also mixes in prophecies concerning the then and what was to follow and even for the now in describing these 7 groups of called out ones.

Back to Isaiah 4:1;

Isa 4:1

4:1 In that day the seven women will lay hold of one man who will say; eat bread and clothe yourselves with His garment and be you only called by His name to take away your reproach.

I have been sent to cry out to those whom He is calling to return to Him and to eat only His unleavened bread of life.

I have been sent to cry out for you to stop eating the bread of men.

I have been sent to cry out for you to cover your heads and to clothe yourselves with the robe of His righteousness.

I have been crying out for you to bear only His name and to let Him cover the shame of your nakedness.

It is incredible how few of you there are who are hearkening to His cry that He has sent me with.

Recently He has had me reflect often on the Ezekiel 5 prophesy where He told me to bind a few in my skirt.

There really are so few.

Folks, what He is telling you to do is so simple.

You must make straight your paths and cry out to others to do the same.

The word that is used for skirt in Ezekiel 5 is a reference to the wings of the garment that He has clothed me with.

He has clothed me with the garment of His righteousness.

I keep saying that this is not about me because it is not.

But it is about what He is restoring through me.

You need to lay a hold of what He is restoring if you are going to be delivered through the coming time of affliction.

I marvel at how so few of you who have heard the evidence that He gave to us in His word have received it.

It is His word that proves that He has plucked me out of the fire and sent me to you but His word has no place in most of your hearts even though you say that you do believe it.

It is incredible how only a few of you have harkened to what He has bid you to do.

It has been an incredible and almost unbelievable thing to witness.

It would be unbelievable altogether but He said that it was going to happen in His word and I believe His word plus I have witnessed it with my own eyes.

How few are the few who have laid a hold of the garment of His righteousness that He has cried out for you to lay a hold of?

He goes on in Isaiah;

Isa 4:2-6

2 In that day YEHWEH's branch will be made to be splendor and majesty, and the fruit of the earth will be excellent and beautiful for those of Israel who are delivered.

3 And it will be that he that remains of Zion and the remnant of Jerusalem will say that all who are written among the living in Jerusalem are holy:

4 THIS WOULD NOT BE IF ADONAY HAD NOT washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion and purged the blood of Jerusalem from the midst thereof BY THE SPIRIT OF JUDGMENT AND BY THE SPIRIT OF BURNING.

It is a reality that the coming time of calamity is necessary for this to come to pass.

And all of the grass that He led me to speak about yesterday will be burnt up.

And so will that which has a form of His word in the physical but does not embrace His righteousness that His word testifies to.

There is no way around the coming time of affliction if He is going to continue building His family because most of you will not hearken to Him without it.

A sadly most of you will not hearken even with it; you will blaspheme Him instead of repenting.

His word has not been good enough for you so He will plead with you with the spirit of judgment and the spirit of burning.

And all will be judged by or measured with His word.

You are a stiff-necked and rebellious house.

However, those of you who do repent from your abominations in the coming days will see the splendor of YEHWEH Elohiym's temple.

He goes on to say;

5 And YEHWEH will create upon every dwelling place of mount Zion, and upon her assemblies a cloud and smoke by day and the shining of a flame of fire by night: Because upon all will be a canopy of His splendor.

6 And there will be a dwelling place for shade from the heat of the day, and a shelter and a refuge from the storm and from the rain.

It is going to be an exciting time to live when the whole earth will be full of the knowledge of YEHWEH Elohiym and His righteousness.

His spirit will be poured out on all flesh to teach the inhabitants of the world His righteousness and His righteousness will be a way of life.

Satan and crew will be bound and His Son and His temple will rule here for 1,000 years.

He is crying out to you to return to Him in order to become His planting in this era of time in order to become part of the latter harvest into His family.

Mourn not that the world must be purged in order for His will to be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Mourn only for your own rebellion to Him and repent of it.

Cover your heads like He is bidding you to do and cry out to become as He is and desire to bear His name in order to become His children.

He will abundantly pardon those of you who do.

And He will give you the oil of joy and cover you with the garment of His praise.

The garment of praise is letting Him clothe you in His righteousness.

Will you hearken and live?

Or will you forebear and die?
