You know, I am bias towards women taking on certain jobs “unnecessarily” before the Creator of man, and women – who was woven out of the man to be his helpmeet – and not equal or equivalent to.
It is a man’s responsibility before God to be the defender of his home, wife, children and property. Back in the day when God honoring principles still applied, it was women and children first aboard a sinking vessel. These acts of sacrifice and righteousness before God were understood, as taking on the right responsibilities, in being created as a man. It was not done out of shivery nor heroics, but out of a once common decency.
Raising of children in the home, and taking care of her husband, was once considered the greatest calling a women could have. Great leaders like Abraham Lincoln, was the result of a caring and nurturing mother, who put her own needs second to her husband and children.
This was the family structuring which once flourished, and nourished the strengths of Nations! The man’s role was to have the utmost respect and care, out of love, for his wife and family, even to the point of sacrificing himself unto death – if need be.
This is the same type of sacrifice that the Lord Jesus Christ made so that we who follow him might have life, and life abundantly now as we live and breathe within our daily lives. This sacrificial Lamb of God also is to represent the man of a Christian household. He is the head of his wife and children, as Christ was to his church, and nurtures and cares for her (still).
The scripture teaches that rebellion is a witchcraft; against God and his ordinances. The women who is competing for the role of the man is in rebellion against God, in all the many forms which have crept in, since World War Two. A flip of the calendar does not change the ordinances of almighty God, nor how he expects “his children” to live within a fallen world.
The Creator, the Lord God of Israel, is the ultimate engineer and authority of his creation. And because God is Spirit (the Holy Spirit) we worship him (kiss towards) in reverence and obedience of his leading and ordinances, first in spirit, then in our understanding, we apply this to our lives within the physical realm, the latter part of our existence.
However, Satan the father of lies, (twisted truth) continually is watching the camp of the Saints, and perverting God’s natural ordinances, in an attempt for himself to reign as God. He hates the order of God, a wishes to overthrow it at every turn, even using religion to confuse and deceive humanity.
As time moves on, little by little does the Devil chip away at the foundational structuring of the Christian ethos, he erodes societal structuring to the point that it is nearly unrecognizable to what Jesus Christ taught when he walked the earth. This is predicted however within the scriptures so that Satan will appear on earth as God, just prior to his destruction, and all he has built.
This “end game” is ever growing closer and closer to occurring; with the brethren looking towards it since before the third century. Yet God is not in a hurry, and will have His day, but only after the “man of sin” appears as God performing many (false signs) and miracles which deceive many.
Since most event occur in the spiritual realm first, and then filter down into the physical, is it any wonder that the world is in such turmoil, and out of sync even within nature? This is a rhetorical question, and the answer is of course no.
Women being put in spiritual authority roles over men, is one of the most blatant and rebellious acts against God and His order! God will never install ministerial authority in a women, as to do so would be contrary to his creation order. Now women are permitted to prophesy, (speak) as led of the Holy Spirit of God, provided that she covers her head, and is aware of her position before the Lord, and his angles.
She is to nurture and support her husband first (as with Christ and the Church) and then her children. For any of us to act independent of God (in our hearts) is to stand in rebellion apart from God – the two legs of sin. Jesus Christ came to die for SIN, so that we might have fellowship with the Father. He did not come as a fire insurance program, so that we might walk independent of God in sin; the consequence of is spiritual death (separation) from God. That is why if one has been drawn to the point of salvation (conversion) they must continue to enter in by way of the cross (sanctification) death unto life. This is why Jesus told his disciples to “follow him” – to enter in the narrow gate, which leads to life everlasting.
What Jesus called the broad road, only leads to Death and Hell – he reminded his “DISCIPLES”; he was not addressing the wicked! Remember sin is the issue, not the GPS position of your backside on Sunday morning – or perhaps Saturday. It is not about a rules and regulation religion either, as the letter of the law kills, yet the Spirit makes alive! To someone who is outside of actually knowing and abiding in Christ, this looks extreme and rigid, yet it is not at all. As walking in the truth as He is in the truth, is to focus like a laser on Christ, and Christ alone in dependency (not independency) from Him. It is as natural for us who know Him to look unto Him like a child does his father.
This is why I have said before, that you can’t teach people into Jesus Christ; either He does the work in you, (and you walk after that work) or you’re stuffed! It is not a sign up for Jesus thing, which well-intentioned evangelism has produced, only to be counterfeited by the enemy.
In the world today we must work and function amongst the wicked, so we must remain focused on our salvation – who is Jesus Christ, by way of the cross. We must overcome evil with good, and must respect even ungodly authorities perhaps, which God has allowed within our lives. We must get along with all men, as much as we are able – yet as a matter of conscience, we must clear all things with our Lord.
Walking independent of Him, only leads to more difficulty and greater trials within our lives. Remember, I am talking to actual brethren here: if you don’t know Him the closest you can come to walking with Him is to follow the scriptures (Bible principles) yet they are no substitute, for moving and functioning in Christ our Christian experience.
Look at the world nowadays; we have men acting as women, and women acting as men. Any adherence to the once held roles for women and men, are scoffed at and mocked. Sexual immorality is rampant, and actually paraded in our streets! Paganism, Barbarism, and cultural differences are celebrated and blended together, instead of restraining such people to their regions and cultures in the world. Have you ever noticed that it is the West, which does all the bending over to accommodate peoples who are flocking to the once superior cultures (instead of away from them)? It is because of the blessings of the Lord God on the West, which are now quickly diminishing because of mixture.
You see, mixture is Satan’s way, Gods is separation, apart from sin and the world. Now a Christian is not to be concerned with what the world gets up to; he is only concerned with loving and following the Lord. If any man loves the world, the love of the father is not in him, the scripture teaches. Yet systematic theologies focus on loving the world, more than loving the Lord God. This is the result of centuries of teaching false brethren, who the Apostle Paul was in fear of for his life in the third century! Don’t believe in Satan you say, well he is the one who has subverted Christian living and principle’s almost beyond recognition today within man orchestrated (Christian) systematic theologies, and ecumentalism.
2 Thessalonians 2:6-7 (ESV) 6 And you know what is restraining him now so that he may be revealed in his time. 7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work. Only he who now restrains it will do so until he is out of the way.
Keep pushing in with Him, who is able to deliver you!
