(Isa 3:1-3)  For, behold, the Lord, the LORD of hosts, doth take away [Heb: turn off: pluck away, withdraw, be without] [“rapture” 1 Thes 4:16,17] from Jerusalem and from Judah [i.e., from the whole sheepfold] the stay [Heb: support; sustenance] and the staff [Heb: support; walking stick], the whole stay of bread [Jesus Christ], and the whole stay of water [the Holy Spirit][NAMELY:] The [regenerated, imputed for righteousness, born-again] mighty man, and the man of war, the judge, and the prophet, and the prudent, and the ancient, The captain of fifty, and the honourable man, and the counsellor, and the cunning artificer [Heb: craftsman], and the eloquent orator. 



(Isa 3:4-7)  And [in their place] I will give children to be their princes [Heb: head persons], and babes [Heb: caprice (as a fit coming on), vexation; a tyrant: delusion] shall rule over them [i.e., rule over us with “strong delusion”] [1]. And the people shall be oppressed [Heb: driven; taxed, harassed, tyrannized], every one by another, and every one by his neighbour: the child shall behave himself proudly against the ancient, and the base [moral-less  person] against the honourable.  When a man [the eldest son, holding the power] shall take hold of his brother [a younger son] of the house of his father, saying, Thou hast clothing, be thou our ruler, and let this ruin [syn: devestation, collapse, deterioration] be under thy hand [for your decisions, thus accountability]:  In that day shall he swear, saying, I will not be an healer [of this confusion and bedlam (chaos)]; for in my house is neither bread nor clothing [I do not have the power nor the willingness to do it]: make me not a ruler of the people [i.e., the times will become so terribly horrible that, unlike now, no one will then want and therefore accept the responsibility (blame) of being a boss (ruler); they no longer will seek power but evade (dodge) it]

1.    (2 Thes 8-12)  And then shall that Wicked [the composite spiritual body of Antichrist] be revealed [Gk: to take off the cover, be disclosed], whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming [the second coming of Jesus Christ, “in us” (Rom 8:18,19), i.e., our rapture]: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,  And with all deceivableness [Gk: (the) delusions] of unrighteousness [sins] in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved [Gk:“safe” delivered, protected: healed, made whole].  And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion [Gk: (strong) deception], that they should believe a lie [a big lie against the truth of the unforgiveable sin of not believing John 3:3 & Acts 2:38] [a,b]: That they all might be damned [Gk: punished] who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness [i.e., sin]

a.     (John 3:3)  Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again [Gk: from above], he cannot see [Gk: know: behold, consider, understand] the kingdom of God [i.e., “the kingdom of heaven” (Matt 19:23,24)]

b.    (Act 2:38)  Then Peter said unto them, Repent [Gk: think differently, reconsider], and be baptized [Gk: to make whelmed (fully wet): washed] [i] every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission [Gk: forgiveness] of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. 

                                                             i.      (Eph 5:26)  That he might sanctify [Gk: make holy, purify] and cleanse it [the church, you] with the washing [Gk: bath] of water by the word [Gk: rhema; revelations]


(Isa 3:8-12)  For Jerusalem is ruined [Heb: to totter or waver (through weakness of the legs); to falter, stumble: be weak], and Judah is fallen [Heb: overthrown, overwhelmed] [1-3]: [Why?] because their tongue and their doings are against the LORD, to provoke the eyes of his glory.  The shew [Heb: respect] of their countenance [Heb: face] [i.e., the appearance of their PRIDE] doth witness against them; and they declare their sin [openly] as Sodom [exemplified as the homosexual/lesbian belief system; but ultimately, Sodom is the archetype and conclusion of all false doctrines], they hide it not [rather, they proselytize (proclaim) it as the acceptable belief system]. Woe unto their soul! for they have rewarded evil unto themselves.  Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well [Heb: good] with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doingsWoe unto the wicked! it shall be ill [Heb: bad] with him: for [he has no fruit for the Lord and] the reward of his [empty] hands shall be given him.  As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths

1.    (Dan 7:21-25)  I beheld, and the same horn [of power, the Antichrist: the composite body (spirit) of all minds against the authority of Christ] made war with the saints, and prevailed against themUntil the Ancient of days came [i.e., Jesus Christ (John 1:1,14; 1 John 1)], and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom Thus he said, The fourth beast [the Antichrist] shall be the fourth kingdom [an assemblage (composite) of people (thoughts, spirits)] upon earth, which shall be diverse [i.e., an (exceedingly?) evil spirit] from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.  And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.  And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out [Heb: (used only in a mental sense); afflict] the saints of the most High, and think to change [Heb: alter] times and laws: and they [the saints] shall be given into his hand [Heb: power] until a time and times and the dividing of time [i.e., 3 years]

2.    (Dan 8:24,25)  And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.  And through his policy also he shall cause craft [Heb: deception, fraud] to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand. 

3.    (Rev 13:6,7)  And he [the composite body (spirit) of Antichrists] opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.  And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. 



(Isa 3:13,14)  The LORD standeth up to plead, and standeth to judge the people. The LORD will enter into judgment with the ancients of his people [with revived, recharged angels], and the princes thereof: for ye have eaten up the vineyard [Isa 5:1-7]; the spoil of the poor is in your houses. 

1.    (Dan 12:1-3)  And at that time shall Michael [“the archangel” 1 Thes 4:16; Jude 1:9] stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble [Heb: tribulation], such as never was [3 years of Great Tribulation] since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered [Heb: escape; (be) released or rescued: saved], every one that shall be found written in the book [of life].  And many [but not all] of them that sleep [Heb: fig. die] in the dust of the earth shall awake [be resurrected], some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.  And they that be wise shall shine [Heb: gleam; fig. enlighten: teach, give warning] as the brightness [Heb: brilliancy] of the firmament; and they that turn many [from unholiness] to righteousness as the stars [Heb: (in the sense of blazing); fig. a prince] for ever and ever
