Isaiah 4:1 "And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel: only let us be called by thy name, to take away our reproach."

To identify what the verse is talking about, we must let the Bible define itself:

2 Peter 1:20 "Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation." Isaiah 28:10 "For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little;"

Scripture often identifies Christians or His church as Christ's bride/woman:

2 Corinthians 11:2 "For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ." Jeremiah 6:2 "I have likened the daughter of Zion to a comely and delicate woman."

Bread:

Jeremiah 15:16 "Thy words were found, and I did eat them and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by thy name, O LORD God of hosts."

Apparel:

Psalms 132:9 "Let thy priests be clothed with righteousness; and they saints shout for joy.: Revelation 19:8 "And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints."

According to prophetic definition; Isaiah 4:1 is saying that in the last days lukewarm Christians will read the Bible the way they want to read it, and walk the way they want to walk yet they will still want to be called Christians to take away their shame. Sounds like today, doesn't it?

Amazing how Biblical prophecy written thousands of years ago are fulfilled today exactly as it says it would.

Bonus:

Why use the KJV for the verses here? Let's take a look at other Bible versions of it...

New Living Translation "In that day so few men will be left that seven women will fight for each man, saying, "Let us all marry you! We will provide our own food and clothing. Only let us take your name so we won't be mocked as old maids."

Expanded Bible "·At that time [L In that day] seven women will grab one man [C war will have decimated the male population] and say, "We will eat our own bread and ·make [wear] our own clothes [C things a husband would normally provide], but ·please marry us [L let us be called by your name] Please, take away our ·shame [disgrace; C from having no husband or children]."

Doesn't make any sense when compared to what the original Scripture says, does it? The amount of different Bible translations also fulfills the Isaiah 4:1 prophecy.
