The Prophesied End-Times Army of Women

(Transcript)

There are many prophecies in the Bible that tell us about the end times, and that period of time right before Jesus Christ returns. Some of those prophecies, we’re very familiar with.

But the exciting thing about living in the last generation is the fact that, just as in Jesus’ generation, there are going to be some prophecies in the Bible about the end-times that we haven’t ever recognized before.

Just as in Jesus’ time, when he was fulfilling many of the prophecies that the Pharisees and the Jewish people were familiar with about the Messiah, he was also bringing into view and fulfilling prophecies about the Messiah that nobody noticed before.

Like the prophecy about the suffering servant, and the fact that by his stripes we would be healed, and by his wounds our transgressions would be forgiven.

So in addition to the prophecies that we are all excited to see fulfilled — like the appearance of the two witnesses in Revelation — there are also going to be prophecies in the Scriptures that we never noticed before. But as they come into view and jump off of the pages into real life, we’ll begin to recognize them as speaking about events and people in the end-times.

One of these passages is found in Psalms 68, verse 11, and it says:

“The Lord announced the word, and great was the company of those who proclaim it: ‘Kings and armies flee in haste; in the camps men divide the plunder.’”

[Caption: Psalm 68:11-12 (NIV)]

At first glance, reading out of this particular translation, this may not seem to be clearly an end-times prophecy.

But as we look at this verse in some other translations, and take a closer look at the Hebrew, we’re going to find that there’s a lot more there that meets the eye.

First of all, the NET Bible says:

“The Lord announced the word, many many women spread the good news.”

[Caption: Psalm 68:11-12 (NET)]

The Amplified version (AMP) says:

“The Lord gives the word [of power]; the women who bear and publish [the news] are a great host.”

[Caption: Psalm 68:11-12 (AMP)]

And the NASB says:

“The Lord gives the command; the women who proclaim the good tidings are a great host…”.

[Caption: Psalm 68:11-12 (NASB)]

Why is there such a difference in these translations? The NET translation notes explain this. They say:

“The Hebrew is ‘the one spreading the good news [are] a large army’. The participle translated ‘the ones spreading the good news’ is a feminine plural form…”

So a person who knows Hebrew, that’s reading Hebrew, is going to immediately see that this passage is talking about a large group of women.

It is only through the translation process that this has been clouded, and its only now being revealed to us and brought to our attention in these end-times.

And understanding that this group of people is a group of women, now we are going to look at two Hebrew words in that verse that tell us more about this group of women, and what exactly they will be doing.

First, the word that is translated “many many women” or “a great host of women” is the word “tsaba”. This word means:

        1. that which goes forth, army, war, warfare, host

            (a) army, host

                     i. host (of organized army)

                     ii. host (of angels)

                     iii. of sun, moon, and stars

                     iv. of whole creation

            (b) war, warfare, service, go out to war

            (c) service

            ~ mass pf persons…especially organized for war (an army); by implication, a campaign…(+) army, (+) battle, company, host, service, soldiers, waiting upon, war(-fare).

So understand that there is no doubt about the nature of this group of women.

We’re not talking about a group of women who get together in a stadium to have a women’s conference.

We’re talking about, literally, an army— a campaign of women who go out before the Lord, proclaiming the Word of power that the Lord has spoken.

And indeed the New Living Translations says:

“The Lord gives the word, and a great army brings the good news.”

How do we know this is an end times event that we’re talking about?

First of all, because we see that though Psalms 68 does talk about events of the past, it is also looking toward a future—when the King and His procession come into view,  and he goes up onto his holy hill. As it says,

“Your procession has come into view, oh God, the procession of my God and King into the sanctuary. In front are the singers, after them the musicians; with them are the maidens playing tambourines. Praise God in the great congregation; praise the LORD in the assembly of Israel.”

[Caption: Psalm 68:24-26 (NIV)]

So this is pointing to the time when Jesus will return, and as God, he will take his place also as King in Jerusalem.

In fact, this entire passage is a portrait of the return of Christ, and how he will march forward in power, defeat his enemies, crush their heads, and march in victory in that procession up to his holy hill.

This is a future event that has not yet happened.

Second of all, we also know that throughout human history, the history of the Bible, and the history of the Church, though we have seen a few bright shining stars of strong women leaders and prophets that God has raised up in order to proclaim his Word of power, we have never in human history yet seen a formidable army of women that go forth in a campaign to publish and preach his Word.

And indeed that is exactly what our second Hebrew word is going to tell us about this verse, because the word that is translated “to proclaim” or “to pronounce” the word of the Lord is the word “basar”. It means:

        1. to bear news, bear tidings, publish, preach, show forth

            (a) to announce (salvation) as good news, preach

                     i. to announce (glad news):

                    ~messenger, preach, publish, shew forth, (bear, bring, carry, preach, good, tell good) tidings.

So ladies and gentlemen, whether or not it fits into your doctrine, this is the Word of the Lord.

It is written. It cannot be changed.

This is a prophecy about an army of women who are going to be marching forth in power, specifically to publish and to preach the good news of Jesus Christ.

That’s right — an end-times army of women preachers, and we are coming.

So if you have been called to be part of this end-times army — to give the testimony of Christ before men, to go and proclaim that Word to the world — then the Lord is here to give you this word today:

Your place in history has been prophesied, and he is now calling you to step up to the bat.

And yes, all the armies of hell are going to come against you. That river of lies is going to be coming out of the dragon’s mouth to try to overwhelm the woman. [Caption: Revelation 12:15-16 (NET)]

Satan is going to tell you that God wants you to shut up—that you cannot speak to men. That you cannot proclaim the testimony of Jesus Christ before men because you are a woman.

But this passage tells you that there will be an army of women.

And it also tells you what the fate of all of those who try to come against that army will be.

In verse 17 it says,

“The chariots of God are tens of thousands and thousands of thousands; the Lord has come from Sinai into his sanctuary…Surely God will crush the heads of his enemies, the hairy crowns of those who go on in their sins. The Lord says, ‘I will bring them from Bashan; I will bring them from the depths of the sea, that you may plunge your feet in the blood of your foes, while the tongues of your dogs have their share.’”

[Caption: Psalm 68:17, 21-23 (NIV)]

So ladies, if God has called you to proclaim his Word, you cannot march in fear.

You must march in power; you must march according to the orders that have been given to you in this Scripture.

And if you are a person who thinks it is your job to come against these women, you will be counted as one of these enemies, and your fate will be the same.

This is a prophesied event that is happening in your hearing and in your view— right now before Jesus comes back.

If the Lord is calling you to become a part of this army, the only correct answer is, “Yes Sir!”.

And if you are not a woman called to be a part of this army, the only right action is to support them with all of your funding, with all of your words, and with everything that is in you.

Because the Word of power that they are proclaiming is not their own.

It is the Word of the Lord Jesus Christ, who is returning soon.

Let those who fear the word of the Lord praise God’s Word in the sanctuary.

And let those who have an ear, hear what the Spirit says to the Churches.
