The Woman in the Basket

“Then the cover of lead was raised, and there in the basket sat a woman! He said, ‘This is wickedness,’ and he pushed her back in to the basket and pushed the lead cover down over its mouth”. Zechariah 5:7-8

Wearing her signature pearls and powder pink pantsuit 82 year old Nancy Pelosi arrived in Taiwan amidst a flurry of threats from China against doing so. Emerging from her plane or basket of lead she took the opportunity to wave to the crowd in lieu of a smile which her face mask obscured. If indeed, there was a smile.

One question I think many are asking is why? Why would the Speaker of the House choose to travel to Taiwan at this particular time? Is she on a mission? And if so, for whom? What could possibly be worth poking the dragon for? Unless of course it’s all just part of the plan. Which more than likely, it is.

Taiwan as I understand it is the leading manufacturer of microchips. A very important commodity in today’s world. I’ve also heard that the Pelosi family has some personal interest in the microchip business. But did it really require a personal visit when there are so many other ways to communicate? At this point in time we really don’t know for sure but what we do know is that continued provocation of China could result in a series of actions from which there is no return. And is in fact, (as reported by some) in the first stages of planning even as we speak.

According to Hal Turner of The Hal Turner Radio Show China is preparing ICBM Missiles with the capability of hitting the east or west coast and any number of major cities within the United States. Is he right? Will this happen? I think so, yes, but is the timing now or sometime in the near to distant future? I don’t know but I do think we will soon find out.

Update – And now today, August 3rd Hal Turner is reporting that China has opened a “safe” corridor for Pelosis to leave and that she has indeed left the island. So, did China back down or should we yet expect a rather unpleasant surprise as a result of her visit? And while we can’t say for sure the answer may be found in the scriptures below.

ZECHARIAH 5 and the Woman in the Basket

In Zechariah 5 we read about a woman in a basket. But who is she and what does she represent? No, mention of a pink pantsuit but … that may not be the only identifying factor. So, let’s take a look.

“Then I turned and raised my eyes, and saw there a flying scroll. And he said to me, “What do you see?” So I answered, “I see a flying scroll. Its length is twenty cubits and its width ten cubits.” Zechariah 5:1-2

So, the first thing we see as we get in to the text is a flying scroll whose dimensions are given as 20 cubits long by 10 cubits wide – it is referred to as a Megillah and is 15 feet by 30 feet in terms of modern measurements – and is the same size as the Holy Place in the Tabernacle and of Solomons Porch. Thank you to David Guzik on-line commentary for this information.

Then he said to me, “This is the curse that goes out over the face of the whole earth: ‘Every thief shall be expelled,’ according to this side of the scroll; and, ‘Every perjurer shall be expelled,’ according to that side of it.” I will send out the curse,” says the LORD of hosts; “It shall enter the house of the thief and the house of the one who swears falsely by My name. It shall remain in the midst of his house and consume it, with its timber and stones.” Zechariah 5:3-5

The Megillah (scroll ) carries a message front and back along with a curse. The message is against  every thief and every perjurer and a  promise from God that anyone who commits these sins will be cursed.

Following the description of the scroll there appears a woman in a basket of lead and this basket is going throughout all the earth and reads as follows:

Then the angel who talked with me came out and said to me, “Lift your eyes now, and see what this is that goes forth.” So I asked, “What is it?” And he said, “It is a basket that is going forth.” He also said, “This is their resemblance throughout the earth: Here is a lead disc lifted up, and this is a woman sitting inside the basket”; then he said, “This is Wickedness!” And he thrust her down into the basket, and threw the lead cover over its mouth”. Zechariah 5:5-8

Wow, interesting! And as I read this I checked with the Guzik commentary and found the following which I think sheds some light on things.


a. It is a basket that is going forth: The basket was an ephah, it and the lead disc were units of measurement and symbols of commerce.

OK, so it’s a unit of measurement and a symbol of commerce. Reminds of these words from Daniel 5:27.

“Tekel: You have been weighed on the scales and found wanting”.

i. This is their resemblance throughout the earth: The NIV translates this, “This is the iniquity of the people throughout the land.”

This to me suggests that the problem is more than the woman in the basket but indicative of a systemic problem among all the people and they are being judged for their iniquity.


b. This is Wickedness! The woman, the basket, and the weight are associated with wickedness. They personify greed, materialism, and dishonesty for profit. (Emphasis mine).

i. The Hebrew word for Wickedness is feminine. This is probably why a woman personifies evil in this vision.

Not only is the woman wicked for her greed, materialism and dishonesty but as mentioned above so are the people she represents.


c.  He thrust her down into the basket, and threw the lead cover over its mouth: God … demonstrates his authority over evil …

And, in my opinion being thrust back in to the basket indicates that “the woman” is trapped with in this basket and is being returned for judgment. The passage concludes with the woman being returned to Shinar or Babylon via two women who had wings like storks where it is to have a house set on its own base. Sounds kind of odd but remember the basket is an ephah (a unit of measurement) so to have its own “house” -set on its own base indicates to me that the matter is settled and is secured – for judgment.

“Then I raised my eyes and looked, and there were two women, coming with the wind in their wings; for they had wings like the wings of a stork, and they lifted up the basket between earth and heaven. So I said to the angel who talked with me, “Where are they carrying the basket?” And he said to me, “To build a house for it in the land of Shinar; when it is ready, the basket will be set there on its base.” Zechariah 5:9-11

Speaking of storks lets take a look at Jeremiah 8:7 –

“Yea, the stork in the heaven knoweth her appointed times; and the turtle and the crane and the swallow observe the time of their coming; but my people know not the judgment of the LORD.

An appointed time is a moed. Even the animals recognize their appointed times but God’s people do not – the word judgment here is mispat and is used in the judicial sense.

Interesting, when you consider the full implication of the word. From Strongs Bible definitions we get the following below –

Mispat properly, a verdict (favorable or unfavorable) pronounced judicially, especially a sentence or formal decree (human or (participant’s) divine law, individual or collective), including the act, the place, the suit – as in law – the crime, and the penalty; abstractly, justice, including a participant’s right or privilege (statutory or customary) …a charge or crime”

Is the woman in the basket being returned for judgment…it certainly appears so. And not the woman alone but also those whom she represents. The matter is settled…judgment is nigh.


At the time of this writing Nancy Pelosi is 82 years old. A time of life when most people just want to enjoy their grandkids and count their blessings. But this seems not to be the case with the ever ambitious Nancy. She is known to be a formidable opponent on ” the hill” to those who do not share her political views. If money, prestige and power are the motivating factors of her longevity it appears to be working and she wouldn’t be the first.. So, with that in mind let’s take a look at the number 82.

According to Strongs the number 82 in Hebrew is Abar ” which means “to fly”. In the Greek it is Adelos which means “unclear, indistinct, not immediately obvious”.

Hmmmm…interesting. “To fly .. the purpose for which is yet unclear ..??

And to finish we’ll take a look at Psalm 82 which includes a strong indictment by the Lord of those who serve as judges (or politicians you might say) for the poor treatment of those whom they have been chosen or elected to serve. Jesus quoted from this Psalm in John10:34.

Psalm 82

1- God presides in the great assembly;
    he renders judgment among the “gods

(God speaks to the Judges whom he likens to “gods”)

“How long will you defend the unjust
    and show partiality to the wicked?

Defend the weak and the fatherless;
    uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed.
Rescue the weak and the needy;
    deliver them from the hand of the wicked.

“The ‘gods’ know nothing, they understand nothing.
    They walk about in darkness;
    all the foundations of the earth are shaken.

“I said, ‘You are “gods”;
    you are all sons of the Most High.’
But you will die like mere mortals;
    you will fall like every other ruler.”

Rise up, O God, judge the earth,
    for all the nations are your inheritance.

So, as we conclude this look at Zechariah 5 it remains to be seen just how God will proceed. In my opinion, the woman in the basket is well represented by Mrs. Pelosi – who by extension represents all of us. A people consumed with materialism which has led to spiritual blindness … unable to discern the appointed time and the judgment that now looms closer than ever before.

“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem they shall prosper who love thee” Psalm 122:6

Watching and waiting with YOU for the soon return of Jesus! Cindy


  1. May the Lord continue to bless you Cindy.

    • Thank you meeellodee!

  2. The “flying scroll” imagery has always been challenging. An unrolled scroll would look rather like a magic carpet. A rolled scroll would look rather like an ICBM or perhaps an airplane. I don’t know how far we can go with it, as the Lord may have some entirely different in mind. Suffice to say, this rumble with China is just beginning. And while some of the prophetic imagery may be unclear, there is plenty of prophetic scripture that, at this late date, is CRYSTAL CLEAR for those who are watching. Hopefully, that includes, 1) all of your 375 subscribers, and 2) all the folks that your subscribers send this link to.

    Hope to see you soon, Cindy. Write on!!

    • Thanks Steve for your comment. I enjoyed this look at Zechariah 5 and for me the bottom line is this – our iniquity has been weighed … judgment to follow. Not a new revelation by any means but by now if one has not heard the emergency cymbols wildly clanging then it is probably too late
