LESSON: IF YOU HONOR GOD AND HIS WORD HE WILL HONOR YOU!
Let me tell you how I got harassed and blessed in a matter of 2 minutes.
LESSON: IF YOU HONOR GOD AND HIS WORD HE WILL HONOR YOU!
So two Tuesday mornings ago, I attended a women's ministry luncheon. I had no idea that moments later after parking my car in the garage, I was about to get heckled inside a 2 minute elevator ride from a "Christian" woman. The elevator doors open up, this lady joins me in the elevator and here is how the conversation went:
The lady: "Are you a minister"?
Me: "No I'm just a servant of the Lord”
The lady: "Are you a minister"?
Me: "I'm just a servant of the Lord and God is a God of Order”
The Lady: "So you're the one who believes that women should stay at home, be bare foot and pregnant"!? (With a grumbling, demonic attitude)
Me: "No, women have a purpose and a calling in ministry but we all need to abide in God’s order at home and in the church"
The Lady: "So you're ok with the men running everything? You're ok with them having the say"
Me: "The Lord has the final say, God bless you"
The Lady: "The men are running everything!"
Me: "The Lord is running everything, God bless you."
The Lady: "Good luck with your kind of thinking"
Me: "There's no such thing as luck as a Christian, just blessings, God bless you."
Then voila! The doors finally opened up to the main lobby and I was able to make it to the registration desk. Just when I was about to pay for my ticket, 2 '"random" ladies who were sponsors of the event had extra tickets to the luncheon and offered me a ticket. Not only was I blessed with a free ticket but I also received a bag of goodies and to top it off, I met some awesome on-fire God-fearing, bible literate, prophetic and discerning Christians who love the TRUTH straight from the Bible and the spirit of GOD. Thank you LORD!
Being harassed by women in ministry can be vicious especially when you tell them that the bible says how we must submit to God's order at home and at church.
1 Timothy 2:8-15 Men and Women in the Church
I desire therefore that the men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting; in like manner also, that the women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with propriety and moderation, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or costly clothing, but, which is proper for women professing godliness, with good works. Let a woman learn in silence with all submission. And I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man, but to be in silence. For Adam was formed first, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived, fell into transgression. Nevertheless she will be saved in childbearing if they continue in faith, love, and holiness, with self-control.
Ephesians 5:22-33 states,
Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything. Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her
As a daughter of the Lord I will always stay cemented on the word of God and the Holy Spirit in the midst of being hated, slandered, heckled, cursed and rejected by nonbelievers and believers alike. Yes you read that right, Christians are no better and they are no different from nonbelievers! Thank God he isn’t a respecter of persons and he has no favorites! (Romans 2:11)
As someone in ministry, there is nothing more appalling to see "women of God" operating in a dysfunctional, dictatorial, rebellious, disorderly, controlling, condescending and overbearing manner.
As a former nonbeliever, who witnessed this very same demonic behavior inside the corporate offices of liberal NYC and DC and to see it now among Christians is heartbreaking. Since when does culture or trends dictate and overrule the word of God? The reason why so many “Christian” women and even men support feminism is because they either 1) don’t know the word of God because they’ve been obsessed reading the books of Christian authors than the author himself who is Jesus Christ (Hosea 4:6) or 2) instead of drawing ourselves unto Christ, we want Jesus to draw himself unto us so Jesus can adopt, embrace and come into agreement with our worldly thoughts, emotions, feelings, and trends. (John 18:36)
Matthew 24:35 says, Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.
For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.
Revelation 22:18-20 Nothing May Be Added
I testify to everyone who hears the words of prophecy in this book: If anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book. And if anyone takes away from the words of this book of prophecy, God will take away his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book. He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!…
As a former nonbeliever and now as a God-fearing Christian, I’m here to spill the beans to you! If she looks like a feminist, sounds like a feminist then she's a feminist plain and simple, by the fruits you will know. Spiritually speaking, feminists inside or outside the church have the evil spirits of jezebel, rebellion, witchcraft, disorder and confusion and they need to get delivered in the name of Jesus immediately. Ever notice how eventually these Jezebel led women come into agreement with abortion, LGBT rights, interfaith and other pagan, new age, liberal perspectives?
Another characteristic that you must know about these feminists is that they love "one-upping", undermining, embarrassing and controlling their husbands. Spiritually speaking, whenever you discern the spirit of Jezebel being present, the husband carries the evil spirit of Ahab and sometimes they have spiritual eunuch(s) in their circles.
eu·nuch -a man who has been castrated, especially (in the past) one employed to guard the women's living areas at an oriental court.
I've lost count how many stories I've heard from male Christian pastors and leaders who have left their churches or congregations in horror because Jezebel spirit led women came there to undermine, usurp and occupy the position of pastor which is clearly designated for men only according to the word.
I remember how the LORD told me in February 2017 to warn his daughters who labeled themselves as pastors with the following scripture:
"Nevertheless I have a few things against you, because you allow that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and seduce My servants to commit sexual immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols." (Revelation 2:20)
I also remember how a pastor friend of mine told me how this verse came to pass against a woman pastor who refused to repent for her rebellion for usurping the role that belong to a man after many warnings from the Lord "And I gave her time to repent of her sexual immorality, and she did not repent. Indeed I will cast her into a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of their deeds." (Revelation 2:21-22)
Biblically speaking, God made man and woman after his own image and he has designated key functions for both genders to play a role at home and at church.
1 Corinthians 11:3
But I want you to understand that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.
1 Timothy 2:12-15
And I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man, but to be in silence. For Adam was formed first, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived, fell into transgression. Nevertheless she will be saved in childbearing if they continue in faith, love, and holiness, with self-control.
According to the word, the concept of the 5 fold ministry exists and it's under God's order. Also, let's keep in mind that the 5 fold ministry is about roles/functions and not titles.
And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ;
The definition of pastor: a minister in charge of a Christian church or congregation.
-Deborah was a prophet and a judge NOT a pastor.
-Euodia and Syntyche were evangelists and teachers but NOT pastors! In fact, the apostle Paul rebuked them because they were fighting with each other and thank GOD he did.
-Esther was a queen NOT a pastor.
-Mary Magdalene was an evangelist and NOT a pastor.
According to Mark 16:15 men and women are called to preach the gospel.
And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.
According to the books of 1st Timothy and Titus women can play the function/role of a:
and an Evangelist but NOT a pastor or a deacon.
By the way the following scripture pertains to SALVATION not the order of men and women in the church:
Galatians 3:26-29 Sons and Heirs
For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ.There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.
In conclusion, I want to encourage every God-fearing, bible-literate, on-fire, prophetic and discerning man of God, pastor, church leader and Christian man with the following, you know who you are:
- Thank you for your obedience and for being faithful to the word of God in an hour where political correctness, feelings, emotions and deception is running rampant.
- Don’t you dare put a spiritual muzzle over your mouths and walk in eggshells when you talk among believers especially women. If you are quoting scripture, keep preaching it and be at peace. Let God arise and his enemies be scattered!
- Don’t you dare fluctuate and sell out on God or his word for NO woman! Don’t you dare cave into a woman’s whims, feelings or emotions whether it’s your wife, your mother, your sister, your daughter, your friend, etc. Remember the story of Adam and Eve, make sure you don’t let a woman make you stumble or fall.
- Don’t you dare forfeit your God-given, God-ordained position of being the head of the house and the head of the church for NO woman! God made you a man for his glory and his purpose for such a time as this so don’t forfeit the blessing of you being a male for no spirit of Jezebel.
- Please know that as long as you keep preaching the truth straight from the word of GOD and you are being led by the Holy Spirit I will always have your back (i.e. defending you, applauding you, supporting you, encouraging you and praying with you and for you in the war room) as they persecute you including me.
- If you’re a Christian woman reading this post and the spirit of the Lord inside you confirms this message praise the Lord and give him the honor and the glory.
- If you’re a Christian woman reading this post and you are perturbed please go to the Lord for revelation, discernment, wisdom and deliverance.
I’m grateful that Christ has set me free,
I’m grateful to submit to God’s authority and
I’m grateful that I’m not afraid to endure the persecution that comes with preaching and abiding in his truth.
Thank you and God bless you all in Jesus’ name.
Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Certainly not! Indeed, let God be true but every man a liar. As it is written:
“That You may be justified in Your words, And may overcome when You are judged.”
Let God arise,Let His enemies be scattered; Let those also who hate Him flee before Him.
