    Vs. 1-5 - are speaking of the plan of God's future repentance for us. The filthy is our sin, the change of raiment is our new man - free from sin.

    Take away his filthy garments!!!!! AMEN AND GLORY TO THE LAMB OF GOD '!

    Perhaps the BRANCH in verse 8 is the same as the Redeemer in verse 20, chapter 59 of Isaiah. This may be Jesus filled with the Holy Spirit directing the Christian nations of the world. The Holy Spirit of God is the corner stone of righteousness which unites the Christian people that face Satan 's conflict. Perhaps the 7 eyes are 7 predominately Christian nations.
  • Insight 777
    Verse3, garments do not always represent clothing in the Bible. In Isa. 59 verse 17 garments are vengeance. Perhaps Joshua was filled with hate and wanted vengeance when he faced the Lords angel. The emotion of vengeance must be removed before peace can be established.
