DAVID KORESH: The Vernon Howell Epistles

Give Me Your Love, I Gave You My Life

Daughters of Zion

by David Koresh

"How beautiful are thy feet with shoes, O princes's daughter! the joints of thy thighs are like jewels, the work of the hands of a cunning workman. Thy navel is like a round goblet, which wanteth not mixture; thy belly is like an heap of wheat set about with lilies. Thy two breasts are like two young roes that are twins....This thy stature is like to a palm tree and thy breasts two clusters of grapes." (Song of Solomon 7:1-7).

O that I were a thousand men, then I would love them all. But I am only one, yet still I love them all. God looks from heaven and beholds; he sees that the fair maidens are all together with me. How shall I save them, will they each wait? For I am only one, and they are many (Jezreel).

"Behold his bed, which is Solomon's; three score valiant men are about it, of the valiant of Israel. They all hold swords, being expert in war: every man hath his sword upon his thigh because of fear in the night. King Solomon made himself a bed of the wood of Lebanon. He made the pillars thereof of silver, the bottom thereof of gold, the covering of it of purple, the midst thereof being paved with love, for the daughters of Jerusalem." (Song of Solomon 3:7-10).

Lord, when I see them all, my mind thinks of love. They all come to thy place of prayer, and when I see them my heart leaps within me. When they kneel their secrets are discovered; my eyes become as the eagle's. When they lift their hands their garments flow and I see their tender places. Stay me, O Lord, for I try to come to thee, but thou hast created them all so well. How shall I enter into rest? Destroy not all the delights of thy hands O God. Let those who hear me be spared, for I love them all, though only in thee do I find my comfort. The womb is only fruitful by thee. Have mercy O God for thou hast ordained me to speak love to them (Jezreel).

"For Jerusalem is ruined, and Judah is fallen: because their tongue and their doings are against the Lord, to provoke the eyes of his glory." (Isaiah 3:8).

"Doth not Wisdom cry? and understanding put forth her voice?" (Proverbs 8:1).

"The Lord possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was...when he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth:...when he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth: Then I was by him as one brought up with him; and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him. Rejoicing in the habitable parts of his earth; and my delights {images} were with the sons of men...Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not...For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favor of the Lord. But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul; all they that hate me love death." (Proverbs 8)

"And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness; and let them have dominion." (Genesis 1:26)

"For the invisible things of God from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, {created} even his eternal power and godhead {Trinity}; so that they {we} are without excuse." (Romans 1:20).

O God I plead with you; preserve the vessels that thou hast made in thine own image. Thou didst command our father Adam to subdue the earth. He sought in his mind but found no way. He was perplexed for all that was put under him was created in two's. Then thou didst give him rest; thou didst cause a deep sleep to fall upon our father, and he dreamed. Thou did take from his side the strength of his heart. Thou didst give unto our father, wisdom to guide him, and to be his weapon. When our father awoke, he beheld wisdom and said, "This is bone of my bone, and flesh of my flesh; now I shall be as God, I shall bring forth and subdue the earth. God's image shall conquer and subdue all things." (Jezreel)

"The Lord standeth up to plead, and standeth to judge the people. The Lord will enter into judgment with the ancients {leaders} of his people, and the princes thereof; ye have eaten up the vineyard, the spoil of the poor is in your houses." (Isaiah 3:13,14)

O Lord God, at what time wilt thou reprove the robbers of thy people? For I have thy spirit and they hear not me. I am poor, but they are rich. Their daughters laugh me to scorn; they say I am a fool. I would wish to take them into my chambers, and give them good seed, but they love me not but hate me, because I am thy servant; and they do not understand that I love them. I will go away and weep, my heart is heavy for the daughters of Zion. O how I wished they loved me; we would then subdue the earth and bring it unto thee for ever. Why do they hate me? (Jezreel)

"Moreover the Lord saith, Because the daughters of Zion are haughty and walk with stretched forth necks and seductive eyes, walking and mincing as they go and making a noise with their shoes to be noticed: therefore the Lord will smite with a scab the crown of the head of the daughters of Zion, and the Lord will make naked their secret parts. In that day the Lord will take away the bravery of their tinkling ornaments....The chains, bracelets, bonnets, headbands, earrings, rings, changeable suits of apparel. And it shall come to pass that instead of sweet smell there shall be stink; and instead of a girdle a rent and instead of well set hair baldness." (Isaiah 3)

"Love not the world, neither the things that are of the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away and the lust thereof; but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever." (1 John 2:15-17).

"...The prophecy of Isaiah 3 was presented before me as applying to these last days, and the reproofs are given to the daughters of Zion who have thought only of appearance and display. Read verse 23; 'Thy men shall fall by the sword, and the mighty in the war.' I was shown that this scripture will be strictly fulfilled. Young men and women professing to be Christians yet having no Christian experience and having borne no burdens and felt no individual responsibility are to be proved. They will be brought low in the dust and will long for inexperience in the things of God which they have failed to obtain. War lifts his helmet to his brow O God, protect thy people now." (Testimonies 3 p. 270).

O Lord, thou hast created all flesh. It would not be wise for me to enter into their womb. For if they hear not thy instruction, they would bear bitter fruit. Will they not even hate me, for the love that I have offered? I died for them and gave my blood and water for them to drink. Why do they not discern my great sacrifice for them? I am lonely and but one. Why don't they love me? Have not I flesh also like them, even for ever? I will plead for them, maybe they will consider and humble their hearts.

"Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever. The sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre. Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness; therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows....Kings' daughters were among thy honourable women, upon thy right hand did stand the queen in gold of Ophir. Hearken, O daughter, and consider, and incline thine ear; forget also thine own people, and thy father's house; so shall the king greatly desire thy beauty; for he is thy Lord and worship thou him...The king's daughter is all glorious within; her clothing is of wrought gold. She shall be brought unto the king in raiment of needlework; the virgins her companions that follow her shall be brought unto thee. With gladness and rejoicing shall they be brought; they shall enter into the king's palace. Instead of thy fathers shall be thy children, whom thou mayest make princes in all the earth. I will make thy name to be remembered in all generations; therefore shall the people praise thee for ever and ever." (Psalm 45:6-17).
