Isaiah 32:9 says: “Rise up ye women that are at ease, hear my voice, ye careless daughters; give ear unto my speech…”
It is so important to receive this revelation and understand why God had Isaiah to communicate in this way to His People. We will take a quick look at several related scriptures from Isaiah to truly unpack this revelation. Prepare your heart to receive this blessing; this is not a short article for it is written for all, however only the ones with the love for the Truth can receive it. To receive the full benefits of this Word it is imperative that you read the entire article – there is no shortcut to this Truth. At Act 17:6 it was said that Apostle Paul and Silas had turn the world upside down; however today the Church is at ease and something else is happening before our eyes.
Isaiah 32:5-8 says: “The vile person shall be no more called liberal, nor the churl said to be bountiful. (6) The vile person will speak villany, and his heart will work iniquity, to practise hypocrisy, and utter error against the LORD, to make empty the soul of the hungry, and he will cause the drink of the thirsty to fail. (7) The instruments also of the churl are evil: he deviseth wicked devices to destroy the poor with lying words, even when the needy speaketh right. (8) But the liberal deviseth liberal things; and by liberal things shall he stand.”
WOW! Let us unpack this! It says that the vile person will no longer be called liberal. How can this happen? Answer: This happens when the liberal succeeds in turning things upside down. When the Church is at ease, it gives the opportunity for the liberal to take charge and makes changes that meet their desires. Let us take a closer look at what is going on while the Church is at ease today as the vile people are at liberty to carry out their work. Isaiah 29:15 says: “Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the Lord, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? And who knoweth us? (16) Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter’s clay: for shall the work say to him that made it, He made me not? Or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He had no understanding?”
Today, we can see while the Church has been at ease, the liberals have worked the homosexual agenda. The liberal was able to turn things upside down. Listen, after they turn things upside down, their vile actions becomes the norm; therefore, it will no longer be called liberal. It is clear that they are saying that God did not know what he was doing when he made man and woman! God was wrong when He made the institution of Marriage to be restricted to a man marrying a woman. Moreover, some are even saying that God made a mistake – For I am a girl even though he gave me the body part of a boy. Because the Church is at ease – the transgender movement is going forth.
Let us take a close look at sodomy. Originally, the term sodomy, which is derived from the story of Sodom and Gomorrah in the Book of Genesis, was commonly restricted to anal sex. However, the craftiness of the vile has changed the definition over the years. Here is one summation: “In the law, the term sodomy refers to anal or oral sex, whether between a man and woman, two women, or two men, and was historically considered to be a criminal act. As recently as the 1960s, all 50 states had laws that made even consensual sodomy illegal, viewing such acts as “crimes against nature,” or deviant sexual acts.”
A sodomy law is a law that defines certain sexual acts as crimes. The precise sexual acts meant by the term sodomy are rarely spelled out in the law, but are typically understood by courts to include any sexual act deemed to be "unnatural" or immoral.
Surely, this is an example that the Church is at ease. God sent angels to destroy the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah because God knew the hearts of the people and the effects of men lying with men as they would with women. God knew the latter end for a man inserting his organ that God created for reproduction into other man’s organ that is designed to eliminate solid waste materials. Lot knew how wicked it was to the point that he was willing to allow the men to take his daughters. It must be noted that Lot told these men that they could do to his daughters basically whatsoever they wished, however he asked them not to take the men. We must note there were a number of men who sought these two men! They did not want Lot’s two daughters; however they wanted these men (angels). These angels were sent to destroy these cities because of the cry before God had waxen great.
Therefore, it is very important to clearly define this act of sodomy as that of a man inserting his organ that was created to bring forth life into another man’s organ that is designed to eliminate solid waste materials. This act is so wicked it is hard to discuss in this sense. Therefore the vile were very crafty in working this homosexual agenda. Change the definition for sodomy oral sexual contacts between people – who can cast the first stone at that! Therefore, the picture was painted that two consenting adults should have a right to engage in sodomy acts. The next move was the institution of marriage. However Supreme Court Justice Scalia was not asleep. Moreover, Chief Justice Roberts was not asleep when he issued his dissenting opinion.
Chief Justice Roberts said: "The legitimacy of their (The Courts) power depends on confining it to the exercise of legal judgment."
The Chief Justice of the United States questioned the Constitutionality of the Court’s ruling in the same-sex marriage case and has given the People the foundation for overturning the ruling. However, the question today is do our representatives have the resolve to do so. Take time out and read this very important message from Chief Justice Roberts.
Some refer to Chief Justice Roberts as “Chief Justice of the Supreme Court,” when this is done, it is incorrect and it limits the role of the Chief Justice of the United States. It is true Chief Justice Roberts presides over the Supreme Court; however he serves as the head of the Judicial Branch of the Federal Government. It is true; on the Supreme Court the Chief Justice’s vote carries no more influence than the Associate Justices. Therefore, in the same-sex marriage case his vote was with the minority and the ruling was passed five to four. Now let us look beyond the vote and read the dissenting opinion; his dissenting opinion must have merit if he is truly in fact the Chief Justice of the United States of America. He has given us information on how we can overturn the Supreme Court's ruling on homosexual marriage.
The Chief Justice of the United States concludes:
- The ruling of the Court had nothing to do with the Constitution.
- The ruling was an act of will and not the rule of law.
- Chief Justice Roberts expressed that the legitimacy of their (The Courts) power depends on confining it to the exercise of legal judgment.
Listen very carefully and let this ring in your ears: The legitimacy of the Supreme Court’s power depends on confining it to the exercise of legal judgment – The LEGITIMACY – The LEGITIMACY OF THEIR POWER DEPENDS ON CONFINING IT TO THE EXERCISE OF LEGAL JUDGMENT. – THIS RULING WAS AN ACT OF WILL AND NOT THE RULE OF LAW!
In plain talk the Chief Justice of the United States says the action of the Supreme Court in the same-sex marriage case was an illegal act. Based on the Chief Justice’s legal opinion this establishes a foundation to overturn the ruling and to help bring the Court back in check. However, the members of the House and Senate have not demonstrated the resolve to take the much needed action now. Church rise up – Marriage is God’s Institution!

At the time when this was happening President Obama was President of the United States; the President had the same unclean spirit that caused these men of Sodom and Gomorrah to seek after these two men (angels). This unclean spirit caused President Obama to persuasively promote the homosexual agenda not only in the United States but to nations around the world. It is important that the Church understand that we are dealing with unclean spirits. The Church was at ease when we allowed this to happen. Surely, this must be readdressed today because we have failed mankind by treating this wickedness as if it is a civil right.
The Boy Scouts had a policy that banned gays which was upheld by the Supreme Court in 2000; however, under much pressure the ban was lifted. Again, the unclean spirit was present when President Obama expressed his views during an interview. Watch this short video and see how crafty he was when he gave his rationale; his comment was a few words however powerful without any consideration that Boy Scouts take an oath to God to be morally straight. Watch Video. Surely a gay cannot take the oath to be morally straight. Again, the Church has been at ease! Here we are talking about the Boy Scouts; however this unclean spirit is causing boys to rape other boys. Click here to read an article of anal rape on a school bus. This does not end with junior high or high school boys the same unclean spirit are causing others to persuasively promote the homosexual agenda to reach our children and grandchildren’s young minds in kindergarten. Rise Up Church!
It is unfortunate that some will completely reject this truth because of the respect that they have for Former President Barack Obama; however this is not about President Obama – it is about these unclean spirits that caused him to persuasively promote the homosexual agenda. We also must understand unclean spirits run in packs; the human being becomes possessed with many uncleans spirits. This understanding brings light to why President Obama displayed hostility for the Judeo-Christian Faiths. Listen carefully my brothers and sisters if you do not have love for Truth; God will send you strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: that they all might be damned who believe not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

God says sodomy is an abomination unto him – the liberal says it is a life style choice and it is their right. Surely, it is their right because God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient. (Roman 1:21-28) However, liberals with their reprobate minds say we want it to be convenient, legal, accepted by all, Christians must provide services for us and meet our demands, bake our wedding cakes, and officiate our wedding services. Moreover, they say Christians must have the courage to change and stop preaching the word of God regarding homosexual activities because it is hate speech. However, God says that professing themselves to be wise, they became fools. (Romans 1:22) These fools include President Barack Obama, members on the Supreme Court who voted to end The Defense of Marriage Act, every member of Congress who voted against The Defense of Marriage Act, the homosexual, and pastors and others who support the homosexual agenda. Rise up Church and preach the Word of God in love.
Let us shift from the homosexual agenda. Today the vile people know there is much money to be made in the sale of marijuana. The wicked are not concerned about the affects of the drug on the users. Here is an example today whereby the wicked are not called liberal. The moral standards have been turned upside down; it is about the love of money! The list goes on to include sodomy, gambling, and even prostitution in some cities.
Therefore, the message today for the Church as Isaiah writes at Isaiah 32:9: “Rise up, ye women that are at ease, hear my voice, ye careless daughters; give ear unto my speech…” Isaiah warns us of the consequences of being at ease. Isaiah 32:10 - 14 says: “Many days and years shall ye be trouble, ye careless women: for the vintage shall fail, the gathering shall not come. They should be troubled, stripped, made bare, and they will grid sackcloth upon their loins. They should lament for the teats, pleasant fields and the fruitful vine. Upon the land shall come up thorns and briers…”
Isaiah 32:15 says this will happen: “Until the spirit be poured upon us from on high, and the wilderness be a fruitful field.” Today, Christians have a habitation with God in the spirit. However at Revelation 3:15-16 Jesus said: “I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. (16) So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.” Therefore, it is imperative that the Church today not be at ease.
The Church is at ease when many believers become hearers of the word and not doers and therefore they are deceiving themselves. Many Christians have been deceived into believing that this is all they are supposed to do. Go to church, live the best they can, do charitable work and give. Surely, this is a clear sign that the Church of the Living God is at ease.
Listen there is more wickedness to come. Isaiah 28 explains how many have erred through wine, and strong drink. The revelation is that they erred through doctrine. Isaiah 28:8 says: “For all tables are full of vomit and filthiness, so that there is no place clean.” Isaiah 28:9 poses the question: “Whom shall he teach knowledge?”
It does not end there! Isaiah 29:10 explains how God poured out the spirit of deep sleep and closed the eyes of the prophets and seers and how people learned to fear God from the precepts of men. Consequently, they drew near God with the mouth, they honored God with their lips and they removed their heart far from God. Here it is clear what happens when you fail to study to show yourself approved unto God in the name of JESUS.
But, let us give thanks to God! Isaiah 32:1-4 says: “Behold, a king shall reign in righteousness, and princes shall rule in judgement, (2) And a man shall be as an hiding place from the wind, and rivers of water in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land. (3) And the eyes of them that see shall not be dim, and the ears of them hear shall hearken. (4) The heart also of the rash shall understand knowledge, and the tongue of the stammers shall be ready to speak plainly.”
Now let us speak plainly! We have work to do before we are ready to meet the Bridegroom. Wake up Church from the spirit of deep sleep. Church, we must rise and shine light in some very dark places! We must not remain at ease and allow wickedness to continue to abound. God has given the Church power in the name of Jesus. In fact, if you do what Jesus commanded you to do you will become the love of the Father and receive the same glory that Jesus had when he walked on this earth in the flesh. This glory has been given to us so that the world will know that God is with us. John 17:21-23. Rise Up Church so the world will know that God is with us. The world is looking for the Church today. How will the world know that God is real and that his power does exist if we CHRISTIANS do not demonstrate the power? Luke 9:6 says, “And they departed, and went through the towns, preaching the gospel, and healing everywhere.” This is what the early church did; this is what the Apostle Paul and the rest of the apostles did. Jesus said in Luke 10:8-9, “And into whatsoever city ye enter…heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.” God always confirms his word. This is what it says in Mark 16:20, the disciples went forth and preached the word everywhere and GOD WORKED WITH THEM confirming the word with signs following.
