The "bread of life" or "bread of heaven" is Christ but these women are saying they will eat "their own bread." This si referring to a man-made or false gospel which is so prevalent in the world today. The number "7" sybolizes completeness or fulfillment, such as God created the world in 6 days and rested on the 7th. The "women" typify the local churches which some have called the Bride of Christ. However being a memeber of a church does not mean a person is saved-see Matthew 25 (the 10 virgins). Also notice these women are going to "wear their own apparel". Unless you clothed with Christ's righteousness, you will not enter heaven (Isaiah 61:10). These women who typify the local churches are trying to get to heaven by their rghteousness (good works). But we know from Ephesians 2:8,9 and Titus 3:5, our "works" cannot get us into heaven.
