Feminism is a huge problem in the world today. Yet at the same time, it has been mocked lately for the other “progressive” ventures it has supported, that now are undermining it. Hilarious! Now “men” are competing in women’s sports and dominating, and being called “woman of the year!” You can’t make this stuff up! It’s very entertaining to watch the world system, known in scripture as the “Beast” system, self-destruct. After all, for the true Christians, we are not to love this world or the things in it. We are referred to by scripture as sojourners in a foreign land. But this world system, is in and of itself, a metacosm of all things evil.
But what I am put out with is the feministic evil permeating the so-called churches, and being celebrated in Jesus’ name, claiming to be part of Christianity. The Bible clearly states that anything that deviates from what was once and for all delivered as doctrine by the Apostles, is not of God, and is not His church.
A woman-dominated culture is not found in God’s order. It is anti-Christ and it is rebellion. This demonic behavior starts in the home and extends into every social aspect of life, but specifically the aspect people call “church.” Funny thing is, as I stated, God has no part in such places. God resists all proud-spirited people. ALL! Regardless of what they claim they are.
“Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord, because the husband is the head of the wife as also Christ is the head of the church – he himself being the savior of the body. But as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands IN EVERYTHING.”
That means, in the marriage and the home, what the husband decides and decrees is law. A good husband will include his wife in decisions, but ultimate final decisions are his and his alone to make.
I have sat in false churches growing up, (in my then ignorance of scriptural context), and listened to self-called preachers succumbing to the world pressures of inclusivity, and heard them twisting scripture in the attempt to pacify the whims and wants of the people, making the husband and the wife “equals” in the authority of the home. Some of them even went so far to bring women into the pulpit to teach over men, put them in charge of so-called worship departments, as well as appointed them to leadership/eldership boards, and even made them Associate Pastors. It’s diabolical!
1 Timothy 2:11-14
A woman must learn quietly with all submissiveness. But I do not allow a woman to teach or exercise authority over a man. She must remain quiet. For Adam was formed first and then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman, because she was fully deceived, fell into transgression.
But no marvel, it’s just more evidence of a greater problem, in that they these preachers are self-condemned by their own rejection or ignorance of a Bible they profess to be called to preach. No person doing this is of God. Such people condoning this are men-pleasers, as Paul calls them.
As we have said before, and now I say again, if ANYONE is preaching to you a gospel contrary to what you received from us, let him be condemned to hell! Am I now trying to gain the approval of people, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ!
Nevermind anything the scripture actually says, right! Who needs scripture to run a church!!!! Just teach whatever you want and call it “Jesus.” Even though that statement is rhetorical sarcasm, by all appearances in the modern day, it still is true. People profess Jesus everyday, that have zero care for what He actually commanded. They blaspheme and reject any and everything that doesn’t fit within what they want to believe. They are in essence their own god.
“For many, of whom I have often told you and now tell you even with tears, walk as enemies of the cross of Christ. Their end is destruction, their god is their belly, and they glory in their shame, with minds set on earthly things.”
They’d rather find some biblically-illiterate liar in some pulpit who tells them what they want to believe, rather than let God’s word in right context be true. So be it. I certainly don’t care. If a man doesn’t have more intentionality or care in seeking God than that, why should I be bothered by it?
In God’s creative order, the fact is that woman was made by God FOR MAN. She was made from him and created to be his assistant, not his equal, and certainly not someone to be giving out orders to him. But in today’s climate, men are being de-masculinized, undermined, and mocked. And many of the men in church pulpits are mere cowards, whose livelihood depends on keeping the parishioners happy, to maintain their position of employment. And beyond western churches, more and more the climate in the home either has no father present, or when it does, he is relegated to a subservient simp to the autonomous wife. It may sting to hear, but is just true. Oh the examples I could give from witnessing them first-hand!!!
1 Corinthians 11:8-10
“For the first man didn’t come from woman, but the first woman came from man. And man was not made for woman, but woman was made for man. For this reason, and because the angels are watching, a woman should wear a covering on her head to show she is under (her husband’s) authority.”
If you read on in 1 Peter 3, you see where Sarah called Abraham “lord (ba’al).”
1 Peter 3:3-6
“Don’t be concerned about the outward beauty of fancy hairstyles, expensive jewelry, or beautiful clothes. You should clothe yourselves instead with the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is so precious to God. This is how the HOLY WOMEN of old made themselves beautiful. They put their trust in God and accepted the authority of their husbands. For instance, Sarah obeyed her husband, Abraham, and called him her lord (master).….”
Anyone see this kind of godly reverence toward their husbands amongst the mass majority of women professing to know “Jesus” today? Hardly ever! It is very introspective. But the fact is this: NO WOMAN who speaks authoritatively, tries to run the household, or is not obediently submissive in the home has any chance at Heaven. Zero!! She is a devil in the sight of Christ, and a rebel against the law of Christ, and will be judged as such. And EVERY MAN who relinquishes his authority to his wife likewise will be judged and condemned by Christ. God’s Kingdom is not the status quo of this world that hates Him. Yet most who claim Jesus, judge the way church is run by what is “normal” in this world and the churches that bow to it.
It is out-of-order. It is confusion and it confuses the right path of the Lord to the children who are influenced by it. This is not chauvinism, or anything of the such. This is about God’s clear instructions for all who would take His name. God is God, and He has set the precedent for how His people operate here, not society. End of discussion!!
In the church at Corinth, Paul saw that some women had an autonomous spirit against their husbands and against church authority. These women had twisted Paul’s teaching about the equality of men and women, in the context of salvation, to mean that they were no longer under the authority of their husbands in marriage. Paul cut to the heart of their feminist spirit, and commanded that women were even to remain quiet in the churches, and were not permitted to speak up, and that if they had questions about what was being taught, to let them wait until they got home and ask their husbands to explain it to them. He was stressing the authority of the husband as the priest of his home and over them. I’m sure that brought out the venom of some of those gals. Sure has in my experience as a leader. But this is Paul, unlike the cowardly simps claiming to be God’s mouthpieces today.
Compromisers are never of the number of God‘s people. Those types of people simply blaspheme the clear teaching of the Apostles, and come up with their own reformation of what they want it to mean, i.e. Martin Luther and John Calvin. The only person who has been responsible for more souls in hell than those two, would be Billy Graham, who taught their false doctrines to the masses. Yet by false church standards, he is heralded as the greatest prophet of our day. Imagine that! Nothing he taught is found in the gospel of Jesus and His Apostles, but people flock to what justifies them without any personal responsibility. So be it!
1 Corinthians 14:34-35
“Women should be silent during the church meetings. It is not proper for them to speak. They should be submissive, just as the law says. If they have any questions, they should ask their husbands at home, for it is improper for women to speak in church meetings.”
These women had taken this rebellious disposition to the extreme, declaring that they didn’t even have to have sexual intercourse with their husbands anymore. You know, because Paul had said that there is “neither male nor female in God’s kingdom.” What an idiotic assessment of that context!! That is referring to the next life. Sheer self-willed stupidity. These deviant women had twisted God’s word to try to make themselves totally free of their responsibilities to their husband. Sounds crazy, right? It is more prevalent today. Nothing surprises me with people. Nothing. They’re arrogant.
Looking further at the problems in Corinth…Paul goes on to say to the situation there….
1 Corinthians 14:36-38
“Or do you think God’s word originated with you, Corinthians? Are you the only ones to whom it was given? If you claim to be a prophet or think you are spiritual, you should recognize that what I am saying is a command from the Lord himself. But if you do not recognize this, you yourself will not be recognized by God.”
He just told them that if they refuse to submit to the order and teaching of the Apostle’s New Covenant, they would be damned by Christ. Because these Corinthian women began to rebel against their responsibilities as wives, their husbands in turn began to mingle in the idolatrous pagan temple worship practices, and orgies. Did you get that? Early Christian men turned to pagan sexual deviance, attending sexual orgies and pagan rituals, for sexual fulfillment, because their wives rejected them physically and emotionally.
In our day, that would be the equivalent of men turning to things like extra-marital affairs and pornography. Show me a man who is not revered and honored in his home, and I’ll show you a man who despises his wife in his heart and will be tempted to stray. It is out-of-order.
The husband is to be honored, being that God’s authority is placed on him. Does that mean all husbands are honorable? No. That isn’t the point. In this context, this about God’s order for the home and church. Wives being commanded to have a submissive spirit towards the husband, is the same manner that all believers are to be submissive toward their bosses at work. We are commanded to show honor to our authority figures, even when they are intolerable to work for. The root of this is about being Christlike, and not what we prefer.
1 Peter 2:18-19
Servants, be subject to your masters WITH ALL RESPECT, not only to the good and gentle but ALSO TO THE UNJUST. For this is a grace (charis), when mindful of God, one endures sorrows while suffering unjustly.
What did Peter define “Grace (charis)” as? The Spirit’s empowerment to endure persecution and hardship for Christ. “Well Chris, I thought the Reformers said it was where God did it all for us and we can live autonomous of Christ’s commands and still be saved?” I’m going with Peter, the hand-chosen Apostle of Jesus. Who wants to follow Luther to Hell? Not me!
1 Corinthians 7:1-5
“Now regarding the questions you asked in your letter. Yes, it is good to abstain from sexual relations. But because there is so much sexual immorality, each man should have his own wife, and each woman should have her own husband. The husband should fulfill his wife’s sexual needs, and the wife should fulfill her husband’s needs. The wife gives authority over her body to her husband, and the husband gives authority over his body to his wife. Do not deprive each other of sexual relations, UNLESS YOU BOTH AGREE to refrain from sexual intimacy for a limited time so you can give yourselves more completely to prayer. Afterward, you should come together again so that Satan won’t be able to tempt you because of your lack of self-control.”
Well, no wonder Satan gets a foothold in those marriages! And as Paul stated, this goes both ways. Husbands’ and wives’ bodies equally belong to one another. You entered into a covenant with God, for better or worse. There’s equality in that command. But on the subject of authority, nothing is equal, clearly. The man is in charge. I said a man is, not a simp.
A home where a woman is dominating as the lead role and the man is submissive to her, is exemplified in the story of King Ahab and his controlling wife, Jezebel. Jezebel wore the pants in that kingship over Israel, and King Ahab was nothing more than a cowardly, weak, pathetic sissy who was subservient to her every whim. She ruled the kingdom, but he was merely the face seen of the people.
How did God feel about a man who relegated the authority that He had given him, to his wife?? Well in the case of Ahab, God called a Divine Council meeting to converse with his appointed angels, righteous and fallen, to hear suggestions as to how Ahab would be killed, because God had had enough of his simp self and wanted him dead. Yes, God wanted Ahab killed! Read your Bible. People ought to think. God is “Lord of all.” That includes Satan and his imps.
1 Kings 22:19-22
“Micaiah said, “That being the case, hear the word of the LORD. I saw the LORD sitting on His throne, with all the divine council standing on His right and on His left. The LORD said, ʻWho will deceive Ahab, so he will attack Ramoth Gilead and die there?ʼ One said this and another that. THEN A SPIRIT STEPPED FORWARD and stood before the LORD. He said, ʻI will deceive him.ʼ The LORD asked him, ʻHow?ʼ He replied, ʻI will go out and be a LYING SPIRIT in the mouths of all his prophets.ʼ The LORD said, ʻDeceive and overpower him. Go out and do as you have proposed.ʼ”
Ahab died that day. Ever asked yourself “Why was there an EVIL spirit present before the Lord’s throne, suggesting he would go DECEIVE Ahab?” Hmmm, people really should read their Bible. They may find that Jesus isn’t the effeminate, passive person that they have created in their mind’s eye, from the shallow and mostly untrue doctrine they have sat in churches and ingested their entire lives. They may realize they know nothing and are deceived themselves??
Do you remember what the judgment of God was on Adam and why? To the Serpent, he put enmity between the offspring of the woman and the offspring of Satan, and His heel would crush the Serpent’s authority (head) and the text says the Serpent’s head would bruise the Son’s heel. Metaphor! Then God judged the woman and told her that she would suffer during labor, and throughout all aspects of the process that leads to childbearing in her life. Menstrual cycles/ ovulating seem to be painful and uncomfortable too? Yes? It came from the judgment on Eve’s part in the rebellion. Thank Eve for that, ladies! And God told her that the man will have DOMINION OVER HER. He will rule her and she will be obedient to him, or else. How do you think God feels about about a woman who rebels against this judgment? Yeah….. a Jezebel. Know how Jezebel died? Ahab’s successor to the throne, Jehu, had her thrown out of her window by the eunuchs, and her body was trampled by horses, and street dogs ate her body before it could even be buried. God hated her! God hates all women who operate in a spirit of feminism and rebellion against His declared order. Especially those who take His name and call themselves “believers.” They are really antichrists, revolting against the law of His Son.
But what we are looking for is what God said to Adam in his judgment, and for his part in the Garden scene rebellion:
But to Adam he said, “BECAUSE YOU OBEYED YOUR WIFE and ate from the tree about which I commanded you, ʻYou must not eat from it,ʼ cursed is the ground thanks to you; in painful toil you will eat of it all the days of your life.”
How nice is the thought to where Adam could plant gardens where weeds and thorns did not exist? Any man who loves a clear lawn knows the hell that weeds are, LOL! So….. how does it appear here that God saw a woman influencing her husband to obey her rather than Him? Every time it happens, people suffer. In the home, the poor example permeates the children, and it is carried on generation after generation, because a man has no backbone to be the priest in his home, and hardly any women have the fear of God to submit to that.
And let’s pull one more example, just to have three witnesses of scripture: The example of Abraham. God has promised Abraham a son, at an age when he and Sarah were well past the age of childbearing. A miracle birth, if you will. Sarah mocked God by laughing in her heart at the idea. And later in life, when it wasn’t coming to pass in the timing that Sarah wanted, she suggested that Abraham stoop to carnal, worldly methods, which is nothing short sexual adultery, and go have sex with the maid and get her pregnant, and take her child as their own. Sounds like a real godly plan, huh? You’d think at this point, Abraham had learned to not question God, and trust Him. Yet at Sarah’s demand, he simped out and was going to help God out, since God must be asleep and forgetting about His promise!!
So Sarai said to Abram, “Now behold, THE LORD HAS PREVENTED ME FROM BEARING CHILDREN. Please go in to my maid; perhaps I will obtain children through her.” AND ABRAHAM OBEYED (שָׁמַע )THE VOICE OF SARAH….”
And even until this very day and hour of writing on December 28, 2023, the consequences of Abraham’s choice to surrender his authority as priest of his home to Sarah, remain. The Middle East turmoil that plagues this current world is the product of the sin in this story. Abraham, father of both Arab and Jewish nations, has had his legitimate and illegitimate offspring warring with one another since those days. All sin is far reaching, folks. The Israel/ Hamas war, the Israel/Iran conflicts, and on and on are all stemming from Sarah’s idiotic idea and influence over her husband. Abraham’s judgment has costed millions of lives throughout the millennia.
Husbands you are called to be the priest in the home. Wives, you are to be submissive to your husbands and obedient. The only time a Christian should not obey those that God has placed in authority is when that person in authority has asked something of them that would be in defiance to Christ. It is not about whether or not the person in subjection agrees. The Kingdom of God is NOT a democracy. Americans would do well to learn this.
Jesus did not agree with the treatment he endured by his accusers/killers. But never once did he raise his voice or his hand to defend himself. Not once.
Wives, if you won’t be submitted to God’s commands, you will never have a part in the kingdom of Christ. Neither will you husbands, if you do not walk in the authority God has placed on you. You are accountable to Christ for your God-given birth roles. Husband, your job is to lead your wife and children to an obedient life in honoring the word and will of God. You can’t cleanse your wife, children, and home by a Word of God that you do not know for yourselves. If you are failing, they all will fail. And wife, if you live as a rebel to this law of God, you will likely be an agent of damnation in your home and marriage before Christ. It is clear in every example I have shown here.
“Husbands, love your wives just as Christ loved the church and gave himself for her to sanctify her by cleansing her with the washing of the water by the word, so that he may present the church to himself as glorious – not having a stain or wrinkle, or any such blemish, but holy and blameless. In the same way husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.”
No man who loves his wife teaches her to rebel against God, by being a Simp like Ahab and allowing her to live in rebellion to the Truth. Fact. Men, if your wife’s feminist spirit refuses to submit to God’s law, let her leave you, and you will be free to obey God unhindered, and to remarry without defying God’s law on the matter.
