THE BENEFITS OF TRAVAILING IN BIRTH ISAIAH 66:1-14 The church giving birth to the lost is likened unto a woman giving birth to her child. Paul said: "my little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ befonned in you," (GaL 4:19) We must travail in giving birth to the lost, as a woman does in giving birth to her child. As soon as Zion "travailed," or had birth pains, she brought forth her children. (v8) I.

(Gen. 3:16 "Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thysorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children") 2. There has never been a person born into the kingdom of God that it didn t cost someone some pain, discomfort, and sorrow - through prayer, worry, and witness. (John 3:16 "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten son,") If we "travail" we will give birth.(Psalm. 126:3-6 "They that sow in tears shall reap in joy He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.")

Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children. 9 Shall I bring to the birth, and not cause to bring forth? saith the LORD: shall I cause to bring forth, and shut the womb? saith thy God.
