Becoming a Fearless Woman

2/23/212/27/21-2/28/21; 3/5/21; 3/6/21-3/7/21; 3/13/213/20/21-3/21/21

 

While I have my own fears to conquer

        Can we at least tackle a special fear that women are more vulnerable to?

        Can we at least lead temptations into non-fear/anxiety with Logos?

        Were not talking about initial reactions to providence and situations, but rather were especially talking about what you LEAD situations into on a long-term posture and basis.

 

Portraits of Fearful Women

 

I have many stories of fearful women (especially international ones)

  on airplanes

  in church

  women with loud mouths and defeated husbands

 

While many of these extreme stories occurred when I was traveling, what continually strikes me is how these same dynamics can continue to play out in in very normal day-to-day life -- as it did with that Spanish momma who went from being hospitable and welcoming into being enthusiastically darkened and bitter through fear

 

So Why Are Women Often More Fearful?

1Pe_3:7 - weaker container

2Ti_3:6 - little women

1Ti_2:15 she will be saved

 

Ay Notes

2/28/21; 3/5/21 (Overseer)

 

Women came from rib and pertain to deep thought and emotion. 

 

Since women's nature is riblike, they needs to reach to become logical.

 

Men need to reach to be heartfelt and emotional. 

 

Not and insult but point of reference. It's where you end that's important.

 

Wisdom personified by female because it's more than just about intellect.

 

Women tend to be more fearful and face irrational fears than men.

 

Ex. Women deal more with white coat syndrome (increased blood pressure when around doctors) more than men.

 

There's a fine line between being cute and "a little woman" / (diminutive phrase possibly meaning immature in virtue).

 

Getting somewhere is about what do & what you obtain from growing into your gender specific need.

 

Ex women need to grow into logos and men need to grow into being more caring, heartfelt, emotional, etc.

 

Evil women [cope/]deal with fear through witchcraft & harlotry

 

The way to win is through virtue.

 

---------------

 

The Point: Im pretty sure there are good biblical reasons why typical women are afraid and why we dont have to be that way.

 

Headship

 

(A) 1 Corinthians 11 Headship among the gathering (Assembly)

(Mankind is the head of womankind in the called-out assembly)

(B) Ephesians 5 Headship in Marriage

 

(other general authority-related passages are listed below)

 

Note: headship deals with humans in general and marriage specifically - both realities are essentially always at play among humans (as seen when comparing 1Co_11 and Eph_5).

 

What happens if you behead biblical authority?

 

If someone tampers with and disarranges their God-ordained headship what could the repercussions/consequences be?

 

If a woman excludes herself from virtue, then beware how much of a harlot, witch, and shallow little woman she may become, and notice how painfully she will ultimately doom herself to be completely defeated by fear.

 

Independence Fears

        There is always a trade-off between your own fear and God-ordained fear (as seen in Ephesians 5)

        Be under authority to have authority: Matthew 8:9; Luke 7:8 (watch for this pattern again in Ephesians 4-6)

        If you are fearful in this life that suggests that you are not fearful of the One who shines out in the next life

        Which fear are you willing to bear?

 

1Pe_2-3 No Fear, In All Fear

1Jo_4:18 no fear in love

 

1Pe_1: Rejoice through trialsfear

1Pe_2:18 Servants to master in all fear

1Pe_3:1-2 Wives Likewisefear

1Pe_3:6 Lord Abe, no fear -- fearless daughters of Sarah!

1Pe_3:14 dont fear their threats

 

The Point: You got to fear the right way to be free of fearing the bad way.

 

Unthankfulness, Unsubmission, & Fear

2/24/212/28/21

        Now lets consider some basic reminders (& talk about some unique newer things) we can do and change to get rid of bad fear.

        Unsubmission & Fear are Characterized/Recognized/Preceded by Unthankfulness

        Remember: keep in mind that were not talking about initial reactions to providence and situations, but rather were especially talking about what you LEAD situations into on a long-term posture and basis.

        We might not outright embrace unsubmission, but some of us have often reaped the harsh consequences of fear and evil, and have been punished sometimes severely through our own unthankfulness.

        The virtues of thankfulness have been neglected way too long among some of us in various degrees.

        What then, does unthankfulness have to do with unsubmission?

 

Real Thankfulness is in the sense of:

        Rom_15:7 Receive one another

        1Th_5:12 Recognize those who labor among you

        Thankfulness is not notional/idealistic/philosophical positivity

        Thankfulness is only seriously thankful when it is acknowledging the real value of someone

 

Long Live the King

Rejoicing in the dominance of men over your life

9/2/16; 2/28/21; 3/5/21; 3/7/21

 

(A) Live The King

1Sa_10:24 Long live the king (Saul)

1Ki_1:25 Long live King Adonijah (rebellion)

1Ki_1:39 Long live King Solomon

2Ki_11:12 Long live King (Joash) (Clapped their hands)

Psa_118:25, etc.; Mat_21:9 Hosanna

 

(B) The King Live Forever

Dan_3:9; Dan_6:21 May the king live forever

 

One way to be out from under submission and reap anxiety, fear, and unrighteousness, is to be unthankful with the authority, leadership, and Providence over your soul.

In these passages, there are basic expressions of love, admiration/adoration, and appreciation for someone else being great/big over you.

 

Note: talk about reverently taking things well even under your pagan authority!

How shall we escape or have any excuse for not submitting under good providence and authority?

 

Act_24:10 Out of many years you have been being a judge of that of this nation, establishing/standing upon this I am good/well heated to answer a legal word of defense for myself

For many years we have enjoyed peace under your rule

I'm glad to speak to you because of your good rulership (under your rule we have experienced peace)

 

Vs.

 

(C) Despising Rebellion

Luk_19:14 We will not have this man rule over us

 

Act_7:27; Act_7:35 CAB Pushing Moses away

 

1Sa_10:27 CAB But evil men said, Who is this man that shall save us? And they despised him, and brought him no gifts.

 

Mar_6:3-4 Despising and offended

 

See: Josiahs Testimony

 

2Sa_6:16-23 [Michal] despised [David] in her heart

 

Bitter to Thankful Fear

 

Positivity First Whenever possible

Lords Prayer

1Pe_1: Rejoice through trialsfear

 

Get rid of resentment and bitterness as much as possible whenever it is not assigned to you from heaven, lest you be in unthankful rebellion and reap the fear of being rebuked!

 

Eph_4:7 unto each one FAVOR of given

Eph_4:22 arrange away from the...old man

Eph_4:22 sour words

...

Eph_4:31-32 Get rid of all bitterness

        Ephesians 4:31 - lift away all bitterness

        Ephesians 4:32 - be kind useful favorably granting* to each other (* see: Eph_5:4)

 

Note: this is the same virtue as being thankful when being kind and favorable in general and forgiving sins...

So, if you are thankful do you think you will also forgive people's sins?

 

Eph_5:4 but rather, thanksgiving

Eph_5:_ favorably thankfulfavorably singing

1Th_5:18 the will of God: thankfulness

Eph_5:21 Fear ·Anointed One NAB (or) God TS

Eph_5:33, etc. Fear Husband as Lord = part of Headship (in marriage)

(Eph_5: Anointed One)

Eph_6: Submit to Parents, masters then: Armor-of-God

 

Take Things Well

Jos_22:24 the alternate alter

Pro_28:14 always (struckLXX withLXX) good-taking

Heb_5:7 Jesus was heard

Heb_12:28 we must worship God

(Rom_8:28)

 

We need to reverence the sacred privileges of our exaltations lest we reap perversions and disapproval from our profaning blasphemies...

 

Lets consider how thankfulness and reverence reinforces submission and defeats bad fear:

Woman at the Well

10/12/19

 

John 4

 

Consider how fast you can wash your hands with running water

That experience is nice, but it is NOT canonical

You cannot simply take your privileges for granted presume you have a prerogative to running water

Notice that Jesus did not help the woman to stop having to spend all that time going to the well

 

 

Dont Poison Sweet Water

Sir_25:17 Wickedness of a woman darkens her countenance

There are always principles to guard activity

Dont let perishables intrude on glories

Luk_10:38-42 Martha presumably learned how to choose the good

 

Warning: If you live a profane life, none of the supernatural blessed promises apply to you!

 

Pro_23:7 WEB for as he thinks about the cost, so he is. "Eat and drink!" he says to you, but his heart is not with you.

Pro_23:7 so he eats and drinks as if anyone should swallow a hair, and do not bring him in to yourself, nor eat your morsel with him;

Pro_23:7 ὃν τρόπον γὰρ εἴ τις καταπίοι τρίχα, οὕτως ἐσθίει καὶ πίνει.

Pro_23:8 WEB The morsel which you have eaten you shall vomit up, and lose your good words.

Pro_23:8 for he will vomit it up, and spoil your fair words.

Pro_23:8 μηδὲ πρὸς σὲ εἰσαγάγῃς αὐτὸν καὶ φάγῃς τὸν ψωμόν σου μετ᾿ αὐτοῦ· ἐξεμέσει γὰρ αὐτὸν καὶ λυμανεῖται τοὺς λόγους σου τοὺς καλούς.

but on his own table he sets it stale.

Sir_14:10 A wicked eye envieth his bread, and he is a [stingy person] niggard [Scandinavian origin?] at his table.

Dominos of Catastrophe

Appointed Fasting

No love

traumatized instead of faithful sacrificing

Feeling not taken care of

rush to take care of self

Lusting for this life

Rushing to get more than whats appointed to never have to fast again

Loose blessed abundance

Rush even more to keep up

Accuse heaven of not providing

Tempted to give up because of the stress of not being blessed

 

Heaven/Husband: I am not responsible for what happens to those who do not follow in my ways

At some point we got to stop being dense and finally get the point of (perceptive, caring) imitation

 

 

Go at the same speed of virtue

 

Dont rush w your feet

It is Very Non-Femenin to Not Love

3/28/15; 2/21/17 (recompiled)

 

1Ti_5:1-15

 

Preleminary Appeals...

 

Two ways to relate to God

- Physical as His creature -- most basic and often overlook in the hype of churchianity

- Spiritual -- by relating to the Clean Jesus through the Monotheistic Spirit

 

Being who you were made to be sets you free spiritually

- You are beseaching the love, mercy, and favor of the one who made you

- You cannot be a recreated spiritual being with Jesus if you are violating your first created nature as a physical being against the Father who made you

- good to not shoot yourself in the foot

 

women

 

Not Talking about Romance Primarily

- but it could include that

- not being romantic is very non-femenine

- Women should be ready to love romantically and motherly

 

Love that is Feminine

- but in this case: mostly talking about womanly/sisterly/motherly love

- Loving as Sisters*, nurtering toward strangers

- * even your spiritual identity is realised through your gender inasmuch as it connects to and relates to the redeeemed new society of the Holy Assembly on earth

- Never to be ashamed of tender, weak, compassionate, clean love / goodmindedness

 

 

 

Gen_24: -- Rachel's righteous love

 

 

Rom_16:13 Greet Rufus, chosen in the Lord, and his mother and mine.

Rom 16:13 ἀσπάσασθε ῾Ροῦφον τὸν ἐκλεκτὸν ἐν Κυρίῳ καὶ τὴν μητέρα αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐμοῦ.

 

- Paul goes through Rufus to mention his "mother" -- not the natural rout if she were his natural mother, but quite appropriate socially, and spiritually strategic, if he speaks of a woman that pertains to another man's house.

- Spiritual Motherhood: Mat_12:49; Mat_12:47-50

- Rufus was a comon pagan name -- but with no qualification made, it clearly refers to someone famious

- Probably that same (famious?) Rufus in Mar_15:21: "Simon, a Cyrenian, the father of Alexander and Rufus")

- Mark wrote Peter's Gospel which was siad to be in Rome, and that is the same assembly which "Romans" addresses

- Paul was also famious when Mark wrote his Gospel

- Mark does not mention "Paul" as a son of Simon the Cyrenian in Mar_15:21

- Rufus' physical mother appears to be Paul's spiritual mother

- Paul had just referenced a common spiritual relationship with Phoebe: Rom_16:1-2 (Meyer: 1Co_16:18; Phm_1:11; and see on 1Co_1:2)

 

 

Bible Paul as a Mother

1Th_2:7

Men Should Not be Like Women

7/15/12; 2/21/17 (recompiled)

 

In Dress

Law: wear nothing that pertainst to a woman...

 

In Courage

Nah_3:13 CAB Behold, your people within you are as women: the gates of your land shall surely be opened to your enemies: the fire shall devour your bars.

 

it is expected that women would fear physical punishment, and be kept in a posture of submissive obedience.

Maintenance is a Male Authoritys Obligation

Exo_21:7-11 CAB And [not in MT] if anyone sell [ἀποδῶται] *his daughter [* τὴν ἑαυτοῦ θυγατέρα] *as a domestic [* LXX: οἰκέτιν Lit. household-ish (fig. servant) woman (Lev_19:20; Pro_30:23); MT: לאמה (H519) lit. bondwoman; fig. female servant/ handmaid] [i.e. out of poverty: Lev_25:39], she shall not *depart [ἀπελεύσεται (middle voice) i.e. be dismissed from servitude at the year of Jubilee (same Heb. & Gr. words as Exo_21:2-5, etc.)] as *the maidservants [* LXX: αἱ δοῦλαι a contrast of two classes of servants (οἰκέτιν vs. αἱ δοῦλαι) is being made here; MT: העבדים׃ (H5650) male servants (WEB) a contrast of gender?] depart [ἀποτρέχουσιν (i.e. at Jubilee)]. 8 If she be not [ἐὰν μὴ] pleasing [εὐαρεστήσῃ] *to her master [* τῷ κυρίῳ αὐτῆς to the lord of hers/ to that of her lord], after she *has [* MT: לא has not; interestingly, MT (and most professionals) mark this Heb. negative as actually a positive (as LXX has it)] betrothed [καθωμολογήσατο from καθομολογέω (ALS p. 296)] herself to him [Get NETS: Gr.: or after he has betrothed her to himself?], *he shall let her go free [>> compare w previous?? * ἀπολυτρώσει αὐτήν (ap (G575), from + loō (G3068), to wash, bathe) he washes (fig. loses) her away; MT: let her be redeemed (WEB) by another Israelite]; but [δὲ fig. and (i.e. there is no contrast here, which is common for δὲ)] *he is not at liberty [* οὐ κύριός ἐστιν he is not lord] to sell ωλεῖν] her to a foreign [ἀλλοτρίῳ] nation [ἔθνει], because [ὅτι] he has trifled [ἠθέτησεν lit. disarranged (fig. removed virginity, or is she simply betrothed??)] with [ἐν in] her. 9 And if he should have betrothed [καθομολογήσηται] her to his son, he shall do οιήσει] to her according to the right [δικαίωμα righteous thing; fig. righteous deed (pertaining to that)] of daughters. 10 And if he take another [ἄλλην] [WEB adds wife] to himself, he shall not *diminish [οὐκ ἀποστερήσει he shall not turn away; fig. defraud (same as 1Co_7)] *her food [τὰ δέοντα lit. the bindings; fig. needs/ necessities; i.e. things she is bound/ indebted to need], [καὶ and (omitted in CAB but not NETS)] *her clothing [τὸν ἱματισμὸν], and *her companionship [τὴν ὁμιλίαν] with him. 11 And [not in MT] if he *will not do [* μὴ ποιήσῃ does not do (as NETS affirms)] these three things to her, *she shall go out free [* ἐξελεύσεται δωρεὰν] *without [MT: paying any?] money [* ἄνευ ἀργυρίου].

> [are these three describing: (A) the minimum requirements, or (B) the maximum sinful omissions, before letting her go free? (note: will is added in English and gives the false clarity that it is A)]

> V. 8 Originally, I had (apparently mistakenly) said: like usual, English versions have lied and added words to make this description look like a prescriptive command! Grammar: V-FAI-3S Verb Future Tense (a foreseen possibility), Active Voice (he does it to her), Indicative Mood (reporting the facts, not giving a command), Third Person Singular

> Perverted Pharisees today lie to us in English versions and reverse Gods description and misrepresent it as a prescription!

 

Jesus: Behold you mother

 

Important Summary

v. in extreme poverty a man might sell his daughter, but women sold into cohabitation (οἰκέτιν) cannot just depart like other slaves can. For example: other women servants might stay out in a shed in the field, and they can depart when it comes time for them to become free.

 

Critical Notes

She was a slave wife (concubine) this is almost certainly never a first wife, since Jews understood the nobility and honor of building up ones house by an honored queen, whereas a slave wife is basically an additional wife after the queen has already been seated.

Gods command was for her not to depart

God still foresees that he might divorce her

 

Can He Make her Work?

What if he might like a daughter to stay at home and work, but is ok with her moving elsewhere?

This may affect his preference/ choice

 

One Main Question: does he want you to go out and have a career/ be successful?

 

Binding and Loosing What Does The Father Want or Prefer?

 

He Can Choose What He Prefers

Num_30:3-5, etc.

 

Outside of Fathers Home? Ruth Living with Naomi

Note: this is a widow. Does it apply to her who has never been married?

 

Divorced/ neglected daughter = widow

 

Rth_1:8-11 CAB And Naomi said to her daughters-in-law, Go now, return each to the house of her mother: the Lord deal mercifully with you, as you have dealt with the dead, and with me. 9 The Lord grant you that you may find rest, each of you in the house of her husband. And she kissed them, and they lifted up their voice, and wept. 10 And they said to her, We will return with you to your people. 11 And Naomi said, Return now, my daughters; and why do you go with me? Have I yet sons in my womb to be your husbands?

 

Rth_1:15-22 CAB And Naomi said to Ruth, Behold, your sister-in-law has returned to her people and to her gods; turn now also after your sister-in-law. 16 And Ruth said, Entreat me not to leave you, or to return from following you; for wherever you go, I will go, and wherever you lodge, I will lodge; your people shall be my people, and your God my God. 17 And wherever you die, I will die, and there will I be buried: the Lord do so to me, and more also, if I leave you, for death only shall divide between me and you. 18 And Naomi, seeing that she was determined to go with her, ceased to speak to her anymore. 19 Now they both went until they came to Bethlehem. And it came to pass, when they arrived at Bethlehem, that all the city was excited because of them, and they said, Is this Naomi? 20 And she said to them, No, do not call me Naomi; call me 'Bitter,' for the Mighty One has dealt very bitterly with me. 21 I went out full, and the Lord has brought me back empty. And why do you call me Naomi, seeing the Lord has humbled me and the Mighty One has afflicted me? 22 So Naomi and Ruth the Moabitess, her daughter-in-law, returned from the country of Moab; and they came to Bethlehem in the beginning of barley harvest.

 

Rth_3:1 CAB *And she lodged with her mother-in-law [MT has this in Rth_2:23]. And Naomi her mother-in-law said to her, My daughter, shall I not seek rest for you, that it may be well with you?

 

Note 1: rest = a big veil, not relaxation (Pro_31)

Note 2: Widows and virgins often go together

 

Japheths Daughter had Friends... They Went Camping

Jdg_11:37-39 CAB And she said to her father, Let my father now do this thing: let me alone for two months, and I will go up and down on the mountains, and I will lament my virginity, I and my companions. 38 And he said, Go. And he sent her away for two months. And she went, and her companions, and she lamented her virginity on the mountains. 39 And it came to pass at the end of the two months that she returned to her father; and he performed upon her his vow which he vowed; and she knew no man.

 

Mary

Luk_1:36-41 CAB And behold, Elizabeth your relative has also conceived a son in her old age; and this is now the sixth month for she who was called barren. 37 For with God nothing shall be impossible." 38 Then Mary said, "Behold the maidservant of the Lord! May it be to me according to your word." And the angel departed from her. 39 Now Mary rose up in those days and traveled into the hill country with haste, to a city of Judah, 40 and entered the house of Zacharias and greeted Elizabeth. 41 And it came to pass, that when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, that the baby leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.

 

The Women Who Followed Jesus

Luk_8:1-3 CAB Now it came to pass afterward, that He was traveling through every city and village, preaching and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom of God, and the twelve were with Him, 2 and certain women who had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities; Mary called Magdalene, from whom seven demons had gone out, 3 and Joanna the wife of Chuza, a supervisor of Herod, and Susanna, and many others who were ministering to them from their belongings.

 

Certainly this included some of the harlots as well as he the tax collectors

 

Mat_21:31-32 CAB Jesus said to them, "Assuredly I say to you, that tax collectors and harlots enter the kingdom of God before you. 32 For John came to you in the way of righteousness, and you did not believe him; but tax collectors and harlots believed him; but you, having seen, did not repent afterwards, that you might believe him.

 

Considerations

        Such harlots were certainly Unmarried

        Such harlots were certainly Un-provided for by their fathers

        Didnt the words, you, having seen include some men and some women who were eager to keep hanging out with Jesus?

 

Main Summaries & Conclusions

- If he has no preference, then you are free to move to the mountains

- If you want to stack things in a certain order, then that is ok too

- If he prefers you at home, he still owns you even if he lets you leave

- If he effectively forsakes the rest/ protection of maintenance, he forfeits his authority

 

 

 

Getting Married

9/13/11

 

getting married it is so hard walking this alone as a single woman

 

The more I somehow (unwittingly) end up counseling females, the more unavoidably overt it becomes that women were never designed to be out from under authority (dad/ husband), especially before they turn 60. Just last Sunday, (as well as a few days before that) I was counseling females and hearing their distress from lack of order and structure. Our society is not designed to enable women to both be godly and resolved with their life. Before the slavery of womens lib., it seems like people used to have a bit more of a concept of this.

    And doesnt the Bible mention this? Sure it does! It is not for no reason that Paul desires for younger widows to marry in first Timothy five (thats a real good chapter about all of this). And even when Ruth had a job, Naomi still sought rest for the soles of her feet in the house of a husband (Boaz).

 

I do not know to what degree all of these things may or may not apply to your particular situation, but I cant help but be burdened by all the cries of godly women trying to live in the insanity of this society!

 

I keep praying that God would send me out to preach somewhere and I would find some godly men to marry these women off too.

 

Psa_12:1 CAB  ...Save me, O Lord; for the godly man has failed; for truth is diminished from among the children of men.

 

Mic_7:2 CAB  For the godly has perished from the earth; and there is none upright among men...

 

(also Ecc_7:28, Jer_5:1, Luk_18:8)

 

In the mean time, were currently putting things in place and seeking out appropriate and beneficial structure for these females to be helped under the authority (and structure) of Jesus assembly (Church). These things are always really exciting to me.

 

Original 2007 Teaching

 

This teaching is specifically designed to encourage women in how they might take hold of the things of God, but the men that also participate will also gain wisdom and a proper understanding of how they ought to be viewing and treating women with respect and help as they aspire to be women of God.

 

Im here writing these things so that women will feel the affirmation and hope that the Bible has been specifically offering them all along, that has been stolen from their hearts by feminist paranoia and propaganda, and by spiritually week pastors who are too intimidated by the controversial implications to even address the issue.

 

Group Therapy is helpful before beginning this Study on women:

(Repeat the following out loud)

        The Bible has my best interests in mind, even as a woman

        To get the real and Truest hope and encouragement that God called me to, I have to begin by believing the Bible, even when it seems discouraging to me at first. [Be aware that the counterfeit supplies a temporary, shallow, sugar rush satisfaction that quickly burns off and leaves you ultimately dissatisfied and unhealthy].

        Avoiding the verses in the Bible that are accused of putting women down solves nothing, but in fact, achieves the very purpose that these lies set out to accomplish by obstructing us from believing and understanding the verses God designed for our good.

        I cant let foolish anti-Bible ideas persuade me that certain men who were used to write the Bible allowed shovanistic beliefs to cloud their perception, and wrote in a way to suppress women.

        It is dishonest to believe that the positional distinctions given to women (such as submission) were only temporary commandments dependent upon the culture.

        To be fulfilled and satisfied in Jesus as a woman of God and to obtain the greatness that He has called me to, I cannot make any excuses at all whatsoever to avoid believing the Bible, even when it seems impossible, impractical, unrealistic, over limiting, discouraging, or in any other way, hard to accept.

        By minimizing certain Bible verses, Ive done nothing more than to lie to myself and others.

 

If we can first embrace these very basic realities and certify them in our hearts and build them into our values as being indispensable, then we will lay a good foundation and be off to a bright start to taking a hold of the huge calling which the Bible calls being A Women of God.

 

The problem

I see so many women stunted from accessing or even pursuing greatness in God because they have no idea what God has called women to as well as men.

Some men can say with excitement, I want to be a man of God like Samson but in many cases I scarcely hear women aspiring for these things. And when women do aspire for something big in church, it is almost always in unbiblical positions and vain aspirations to take the positions that have been exclusively given to men.

So often we think of greatness as being on the stage, and we think of not preaching publically of not being in real ministry at all.

I see some men who are ready to be stirred for honor and greatness in Gods kingdom, but so often I see women grasping for the motivation and it consistently evading them.

The lie: Women have to be like men to be great

 

The first order of business for feeling reality is to start believing truth.

 

The most Difficult Scriptures For women

If you will hear the Bible out for what it actually says, then you will find no trace of minimizing women in Gods kingdom

 

The proof of a real woman of God, or prophetess:

She will seek to only teach women, but men will come to hear anyway out of desperation for the word of God.

Deborah exemplifies this,

and it even goes to the point when she tell Barrack to go and fight by himself

 

Case and point: Deborah was a woman of God, Joan of Arc was not

 

Why is wisdom called she? There is something to the special humility that women are called to that exemplifies the gentleness of wisdom.

Even though the Bible says that women are spiritually equal with men we still stumble over this in view of the men in the foreground operating as the pushers and movers of life, even in the Bible.

 

The disciples were amazed to see him talking with a woman.

  This specific societal restraint was not one of sexual purity or Jesus certainly would not have defied it (avoid the appearance of evil), but this taboo was one of the worth of women

 

What should be our response to these things?

  YES Lord, but even the dogs lick up the crumbs that fall from the masters table

  Do you see how rebelling in our heart to these verses disqualifies us from obtaining the prize hidden behind it?

 

 

 

 

 

The Most Encouraging Scriptures for women

 

Since when in Gods kingdom has humble circumstances equaled insignificance in heaven?

  Fist last, last first

How is it that weve come to despise the humility that god has called us to?

  Jesus was subject to His parents (can you imagine how humiliating that could have been for Him?)

Genesis 3:6-8

[1.] We have here the inducements that moved them to transgress. The woman being deceived, was ring - leader in the transgression, 1Ti_2:14 She saw that the tree was - It was said of all the rest of the fruit trees wherewith the garden of Eden was planted, that they were pleasant to the sight, and good for food. She imagined a greater benefit by this tree than by any of the rest, that it was a tree not only not to be dreaded, but to be desired to make one wise, and therein excelling all the rest of the trees. This she saw, that is, she perceived and understood it by what the devil had said to her. She gave also to her husband with her - 'Tis likely he was not with her when she was tempted; surely if he had, he would have interposed to prevent the sin; but he came to her when she had eaten, and was prevailed with by her to eat likewise. She gave it to him; persuading him with the same arguements that the serpent had used with her; adding this to the rest, that she herself had eaten of it, and found it so far from being deadly that it was extremely pleasant and grateful. And he did eat

 

Compare this with the responsibility ascribed in Rom_5:12,_1Co_15:21

Should Men Repeatedly Beg Women For Marriage?

Prince of England

V: Prince followup: vs. "if she is not pleasing to her master"

- Ero celebrates the liberation of makeing the woman the decition-maker of her potential marriage, rather than the men

- think about what that does to the parable of Jesus begging people to marry Him!

- Jesus says, "come to me" not "will you please reconsider being attracted to me?"

- Ero breeds a culture of cheap and imasculated men who do not hold value and integrity before them and insist on worthiness

> Judith saying NO in order to remain a widdow...

> Judah's inappropriate neglect of Tamar

> Contrasted w Rachel saying YES to Issacc

> David saying NO in order to avoid inappropriate-ness / getting in by an inappropriate / less honorable way -- I.e. Making himself of honorable / "noble" marriage (in this life) by money rather than virtue and courage. - but when God has to be involved, he happily agrees.

- Solomon should have said NO to royal marriages like his father had done

 

I have been deeply zealous, offended, angery at the non-exclusivity I have been approached with throughout my life.

This "non-exclusivity" treachery can be lacking in "physically romantics" and or "Spiritually romantics".

 

Loving (and beliving) God and or a person means loving the actual substance and true reality of who they actually are, and shunning regaurding your own ideas.

Basic Cultural problem: Beliving in God rather than beliving Him

Heart Details are always scewed and strange.

 

What is the moral significance with playing hard to get?

Is teasing righteous?

 

- why does a woman at first tell a man "NO" when he asks to marry her? Perhapse for fear that he does not completely and truely love her real essence.

Does he Concientiously and truly love the reality of who she is, or just his own infatuation for his own ideas about her.

> A realistic and total love based on an open-eyed and full perception of who someone is.

Maybe he is acting unadvisable for his own ideas abut her rather than a long-term and realistic apprehension for her substance that will last
