Servants of LORD Isaiah 54
The end of Isaiah 54 gives a message about the heritage of the servants of the LORD.
"If anyone does attack you, it will not be my doing; whoever attacks you will surrender to you.“See, it is I who created the blacksmith who fans the coals into flame and forges a weapon fit for its work. And it is I who have created the destroyer to wreak havoc; no weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and this is their vindication from me,” declares the LORD."
In Hebraic philosophy the accuser of the servants of the LORD e.g. the holy, are also the adversaries of God. The accusers were otherwise known as coming from HaSatan. Isaiah 54 is about a woman but who is she? This morning I saw a vision of a blond haired woman sliding down a snow covered mountain, she was coming down from the peak and the peak of a snow capped mountain in psychology can be symbolic of ambition.
Once a person as reached the peak of their ambitions in their careers they can come back down the mountain. The mountain peak can also be symbolic of the peak of spiritual fitness. When a person is spiritually fit they can then help those that are in the valley of death. As we have said to others in the past, Christ did not sit on top the mountain top meditating and praying all day.
What struck me most about the vision this morning was the sheer speed at which the woman was going down the mountain. Like she didn't have any choice in the matter, it was her destiny.
In the Isaiah prophecy, this woman as not given birth to any children yet, although she is a widow. It feels like this is a prophecy to be fulfilled. Whoever this woman is, she knows about the everlasting covenant of peace, is it the Princess mentioned in Psalm 45 that bestowed the golden gown upon me for the second mission to Israel? She must be young, because the prophecy predicts that she will have children after she becomes a widow.
The words tyranny also give us this timeline, because there as been no other time like the experience of humanity now. Its also clear that she has been taught about the 'Puppy Philosophy' because she knows about the accusers and how to deal with them in the same way as I do.
Also interesting that she comes after Isaiah 53, that speaks of the righteous servant. If it is who I feel it could be, then I did share some of the spoils of my life experience with her, to help her to help herself and others.
