“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.”
King James Version (KJV)

Look at the symbolism. In Revelation, there are 7 (types of) churches left. Women symbolize the church. The Messiah is coming back for His bride, the church, for example. So 7 churches will be trying to preach their own message (the bread they break), and clothing is symbolic of righteousness. We are told later in Revelation one of the 7 churches thinks it is perfect when it is really naked and blind. So these churches will want to preach their own version of "
scripture", and they will believe they are clothed in righteousness, but they are wrong in their doctrines and therefore will call on Messiah to cover their inequities in His name.
In other words, there wiill be many churches in the end times all saying they are correct and right, when in reality, none of them are, but as long as they include His name, they think they will be covered. He will tell them He never knew them - nominal Xtians.

Sheri, the Spirit has graced you with his wisdom and understanding. Most don't understand that THE DAY OF THE LORD has been going on for 2000 years.
Amos 8:9 And it shall come to pass in THAT DAY, saith the Lord God, that I will cause the sun to go down at noon, and I will darken the earth in a clear day.
Matthew 27:45 And from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour.
Joel 2:31 The sun shall be turned in darkness, and the MOON into blood, BEFORE the terrible DAY OF THE LORD come.
Psalm 89:36 It (his seed, Christ) shall be established for ever as the MOON, and as a faithful witness in heaven.
Revelation 1:5 And from Jesus Christ, who is my FAITHFUL WITNESS......
John 19:34 .....and forthwith came there out blood and water.....
Zachariah 14:7 IT SHALL BE ONE DAY which shall be known to the Lord, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass at evening time it shall be light.
It still isn't light and 2000 years has already passed.
The Spirits grace continue upon you.

In this dark day of the LORD all congregations and World are under judgement...yet God is feeding his people through his Word.
In that day (Day of the LORD), seven women (fullness of earthly congregations), do not want God's Word (bread) but want to be called by his name (Christian).
Isaiah 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.
2In 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.
3And 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:
4When 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.

I felt lead to go back to chapter 3 to get a fuller understanding because in 4th chapter verse 1 it said, AND....
I believe this is literal. Women having a desperate need and desire to marry for protection and covenant as it should be. Chapter 3 speaks about the haughtiness of women relying on their seduction and the things that they wear and their beauty that becomes curses. It states that their scalps shall have scabs and become bald. This is truly this day..so many women are wearing weaves wigs, & extensions... and their personalities are being altered, relying on their beauty instead of inner strength from the Most High...
So the day is coming and has come that we will become mournful and lament of our sins and wanting the Covenant that the Most High had given us- A man's love and a woman's faithfulness, as Christ is to the Church. She will find that the woman should be behind her man(NOT Being dominant) but protective because of this day that is surely coming he will be a warrior fighting for his family. and not her beside him less he will become to fight in anger should something happens to her...iIn YAH'S WISDOM he will get her love, support and nurture in the midst of wartime. Many women will find out them being self-sufficient, it is and will not be enough....

Seven women are Churches as in Revelation...they only wants to be called Christians whilst they have put aside the Law of Him whom they claim to be his. That's what happening today, many claims to be Christians but don't want to keep Christ's Commandments as He commanded at John 14:15 ''If you love me, keep my commandments''
Reverine James Sambo's comment on 2015-07-13 00:55:40:
The verse is more than clear. We do not to suppose that the 7 women are the Churches. How can a Church say we will clothe ourselves. This is very evident as to what is happening these days where they are many unmarried women than men. There is a great decreament of the number of men as some of them die in wars. When you even consider a birth-rate women in comparison to men, we find that many girls are born world-wide than men.

"...seven women... " - the word used here is women, virgins is not used here. It seems evident that these 'women ' self identify as reproachful, or maybe unfaithful illegitimate. These people churches were not faithful to the Truth God, Jesus .
CLINT's comment on 2014-10-05 15:45:33:
I think there are at least two meanings, first the natural of women in that day not wanting to be unmarried and childless,and spiritual,meaning many people will not abide by the words of JESUS nor accept his righteousness by faith,but want to be called a christian.
Bongiwe's comment on 2013-12-28 00:11:27:
I think it means there are so many church who are against the bible ,who do things which are not biblically authorised so they are hiding by jesus name to deceive many souls because according to the bible a woman symbolises a church.
