Isaiah 54 Company
"A Healing Place
women who have been shamed, rejected, cast off and forsaken."
This ministry was conceived
in faith that works through love. It
isn't just a ministry, it is a lifestyle which flows out of the heart of
God. He provides a safe place for women
to give and receive Godly counsel and encouragement. He is restoring double honour for all the
shame His beloved daughters have suffered.
Why "Isaiah 54
Company?" Toward the end of the
summer of 2007, I started seeing the words, "ISAIAH 54 COMPANY" from time to time. After about 3 weeks, I realized that God was
trying to show me something. Isaiah 54
is a chapter concerning Israel as God's wife, but it is also a chapter for
women who have suffered much shame and rejection through barrenness, widowhood
and divorce. I am an Isaiah 54 Woman myself. I lost my beloved husband of 30+ years in
Although I have always had a
heart for Isaiah 54 Women, I was given the challenge of living it and seeing
God's wonder full role as my true and faithful husband both now and for all
After a year of death, and
dying of a broken heart, on October 10, 2003, Jesus did what I affectionately
call a 3 hour "open heart surgery" on me. From that day forward, I knew I was going to
live. He has given me new life, new
purpose, and a place of honour at His side, even at His right hand - His
victorious right hand!
Therefore, out of the ashes
of despair, a new ministry was conceived.
It is upon this premise that we present to you Isaiah 54 Company. The founding scriptures are:
Isaiah 54:4-6; 61:7-8, Psalm 68:11-12, Luke
1:45 & James 1:27
Isaiah 54:4-8 … "Fear
not, for you will not be put to shame; and do not feel humiliated, for you will
not be disgraced; But you will forget the shame of your youth, and the reproach
of your widowhood you will remember no
more. "For your husband is your Maker, Whose name is the LORD of hosts;
And your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel, Who is called the God of all the
earth. "For the LORD has called
you, like a wife forsaken and grieved in spirit, even like a wife of one's
youth when she is rejected,” Says your God.
Isaiah 61:7-8 … “Instead of
your shame you shall have double honour, And instead of confusion they shall
rejoice in their portion. Therefore in their land they shall possess double;
Everlasting joy shall be theirs. “ For I, the LORD, love justice; I hate
robbery for burnt offering; I will direct their work in truth, and will make
with them an everlasting covenant.” NKJ
Psalm 68:11-12 … The Lord
gave the command; a great company of women brought the good news: "The kings of the armies flee—they
flee!" She who stays at home
divides the spoil. HCSB
Luke 1:45 … Blessed is she
that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told
her from the Lord. NIV
Proverbs 31:30-31 ... Favour
is deceitful, and beauty is passing; but a woman that fears the Lord, she shall
be praised. Give her the fruit of her
hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates. NKJ
James 1:27 … Religion that
God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and
widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the
We have helped many women
who've lost their husbands, yet so much more needs to be done. So often they are treated as an outcast. Sometimes there is such shame that they are
embarrassed to ask for help, living in a state of withdrawal and often
forgotten or ignored. Their
pain can be so great, that even family, friends and church are unable to
"stand" with them. If divorced,
many are made to feel it was all their fault causing them to live under a cloud
of false accusation and condemnation.
I can personally assure you that
Jesus knows your pain for He too suffered the same! His own people rejected Him, and still do to
"He was despised and
rejected—a man of sorrows, acquainted with deepest grief. We turned our backs on Him and looked the
other way. He was despised, and we did
not care. Yet it was our weaknesses He
carried; it was our sorrows that weighed
Him down." Isaiah 53:3-4
He knows your pain. He is there for you even in this moment.
...“The beloved of the LORD
shall dwell in safety by Him, Who shelters him all the day long; And he shall
dwell, rest, tabernacle between His shoulders.” Deuteronomy 33:12
"You shall no more be termed Forsaken,
nor shall your land be called Desolate any more. But you shall be called
Hephzibah [My delight is in her], and your land be called Beulah [married]; for
the Lord delights in you, and your land shall be married [owned and protected
by the Lord]." Isaiah 62:4
As I was meditating on these
passages, I did a study on the word, widowhood (Strong's H491). As you can see below, Strong's Concordance
shows that the root word (Strong's H488) for widowhood includes the
"discarded (as a divorced person): - forsaken."
Hence, taking care of the widows and the orphans includes taking care of the
women in our communities who have been abandoned by their husbands. This often means that the children are
without their father, hence 'orphans' themselves. God is calling His people to seek out, and
reach out, to the many women and children throughout the nations.
We are ready to listen, encourage and pray
for your complete restoration. In the
Bible, God always gives back double, and better than what we have lost!
greatest poverty group in America is single mothers. The fastest growing poverty group is elderly
women. To take a young homeless mother and her two
babies grocery shopping is around $100 in California. Jesus loves to feed the hungry. We are
believing for the multiplication of the loaves and the fishes. So much need, but such a joy to bring His love and encouragement in such practical ways.

I "see" a great
company of women who have been touched by the love and provision of Jesus
Christ, bearing the good news of His salvation, healing and provision. God has promised me that they will become a
GREAT COMPANY of women who will proclaim the Word of the Lord! What man has thrown away, God Himself sees as
We are also believing for the
souls of the men who have walked away from their families; many did not "keep themselves from being polluted by the world."
Nothing, absolutely nothing is impossible
with God. He is able to do exceedingly
abundantly far far above all we could ever ask or think! This includes the complete resurrection and
restoration of families because Jesus died for RECONCILIATION so that none would
perish! Nothing, absolutely nothing is
too hard for God. Will you stand with
For those women whose marriages are in trouble, or they have already lost their covenant husband to divorce, we highly recommend to you Rejoice Marriage Ministries for encouragement, teaching and standing in faith for their return to God, family and destiny.
James 1:27 ... "Pure and
undefiled religion before our God and Father is this: to look after orphans and widows in their
distress and to keep oneself unstained by the world."
