The author notes the observation of how Christ acts toward the Church, and from that derives wisdom as to how a godly man should act toward a woman. (Particularly a wife) Noting, that this may involve great attention, sacrifice, devotion, and labor on the man’s part, but at the same time must never give any place for the allowance of the spirit, or actions of feminism.
By God’s Wisdom, What Should The Actions Of A Man Toward A Woman Be? What Is Feminism?
The Eternal Creator designed and built the human persons as living mortal illustrations of both Himself and the single great treasure of His heart, the Church. He created the male person, who grows to manhood to represent Himself, and the female person, who grows to womanhood was designed and created to represent the Church, or individual Believer. This is the nuts and bolts, or the bottom line foundational premise of the great mystery that the Apostle Paul spoke of in Ephesians 5:22-33. The particular, very wisdom of which is being revealed to truth seekers in these lasts days before the advent of the next era which has been forecasted to come. (The Millennial era) An era of time which is to happen, but has not yet been entered into, but was/is fore told in the Holy Scriptures. However, it cannot be entered into until both the kingdom of light, and the kingdom of darkness grow to complete maturity, and the full spectrum and volume of the fruits of each kingdom are demonstrated in the world. In light of the coming of this new age, the culmination of this present age necessitates the Church coming to full maturity. In view of this, I offer this writing to truth seekers who with honest and loyal hearts are seeking to live Yehovah’s truth in the world.
What Are, Or Could Be, The Actions Of A Godly Man Toward A Woman? (Particularly a wife)
To answer this question, we will follow a very simple course of thought and investigation. We will consider how Christ acts toward the Church and then endeavor to mimic His actions within the framework of our human relationships. (Particularly that of marriage) For after all, the male person (The man) was designed and built with exactly that purpose in mind: to be a living mortal representation of God. The woman (The female person) was designed for the exact purpose of being a living mortal representation of the Church, or individual Believer. So, therefore, for a man to mimic Christ’s (God’s) attitudes and actions toward the Church (Or individual Believer) is to walk out (Flesh out) the life style and person that the Creator designed a man to be. For a woman to mimic a Believer’s proper attitude and action toward Christ (God) is to walk out the life style and person that the Creator designed the woman to be. Amen! This is true reality, this is true manhood, and true womanhood.
The Purposes Of A Woman, (wife) In A Godly Man’s Manner Of Thought
She is to be loved and cherished as a great treasure and responsibility that has been entrusted to him by God above. She is to be honored, again, in that she was given to him by God, and because an extreme amount of his service and response to the Almighty One is bound up in how he treats her. She is to be taught. She is to be encouraged. She is to be prayed for and worried about. She is to be studied, with the hope of doing the best a man can to understand her, in order to lift her up and cause her to blossom, and bear the greatest amount of the fruits of productively and righteousness that are possible for her to bear. She’s to be courted, not only in the beginning of the relationship, but to a degree forever. She’s to be looked upon and admired. She’s to be teased. (For will a man tease a woman he doesn’t appreciate? Not likely, generally he’ll make a very wide circle around such a woman) She’s to be complimented, and praised for many things. Her beauty, her charms, her labors, her intelligence, her understanding, her abilities, her devotion to duty and what is good and right in life, and in the world. She is also at times good for the simple and basic purpose of sitting and staring at for enjoyment, and admiration’s sake. Hey, she’s good to hold and touch and tickle and handle, and undress, and to enjoy passion and pleasure with. Yeah, sex is also a part of the package. She can, and should play the role of a major recipient of a man’s love and affection, for there can be a great amount of love and affection in a man’s heart. She’s meant to partner with. So labor joined to labor, and mind joined to mind, creativity joined to creativity can accomplish tremendous things for the glory of God in the world, and the furtherance of His purposes, the betterment of God’s family, and the basic family unit. For as Solomon The Great said, “Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour,…….again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone? And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.” (Ecclesiastes chapter four, various versus, KJV) She’s to share the wonder, joy, and great sacrifices, and adventure of being a parent with. She plays a very basic and important part in the Lord’s teaching of man-as to really how the Believer is before him. For in observing the woman the man sees himself before the Lord. And believe me, that is a mixed package.
She’s to be served, loved, cherished, lead, taught, guided, prayed for, believed in, shown patience and forbearance, shown gentleness and kindness, shown empathy, sympathy and mercy. She is to be honored, lovingly disciplined and corrected, complimented, encouraged, forgiven, worried over, day dreamed about, thanked, given thanks to God for, protected, desired, nurtured, cultivated, she is for a man to deliver from all sorts of situations. She’s to be fought for, and yes, certainly also she’s worthy to be fought over. Perhaps even in the struggle to protect and deliver her she is to die for, as well as for one’s children that proceeded forth from her. That a man would die for a woman, and/or her children, hasn’t this depth of love been demonstrated innumerable times in the history of the world? She’s to be a partner, a lover, a friend, a confidant.
But this I will say. Of all the many and tremendous things that a man is to do for, and with a woman, that will even work to accentuate his very person and manhood, and which are to God’s praise. There is one thing that a man is never to do in regards to a woman. Never, Never, Never, Never, and Never!
He is never to surrender his headship to a woman. It simply must never be, death is better than to surrender your God given headship to a woman. Nor is he to either promote or allow her to be his head, or seek to promote, or allow her to assume, or usurp headship over other men, so that he follows her in life, or she becomes the leader of other men. This my friend and brother is confusion before the Almighty Creator. This confusion (sin) fills our nation, and causes extreme hurt, and loss of honor. It is what is called feminism. The day our national fathers in their betrayal of the truth of God passed the 19th amendment to our constitution, thus given the woman the right to vote, and thus made her equal in respect to headship to the man (In reference to civil law) was a day our nation shook hands with the devil himself. This confusion is a copy of the very act of usurpation that Satan himself committed before the Eternal God. Feminism is a spirit of usurpation. It is the spirit of Satan. For Satan is the prince of usurpation. Consider in your mind, should the Christian Believer attempt to teach, or to lead the Lord Yeshua? In like manner the woman was created to be a living mortal illustration of the Believer in the world, so for her to teach or lead a man, (Any man, but especially her husband or father) is to give the picture of the Believer leading and teaching the Lord Yeshua. Such picture should never be given. For of all the wonders, and the excellence of the great grace of Christ shown to the lifting and honoring of the Believer, there is one thing that He (Christ) has never done, and will never do, and that is to surrender His headship (That of being Lord) to the Church or to anyone else. Let us note that Yeshua gave Himself for the Church, not to the Church. There is a very great difference between the two. He is Lord, and in like manner the husband is lord over the wife, also men in general are lord (head) over women in general. (This is called patriarchy, or eldership rule) This is why the apostle stated, “But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.” (1 Timothy 2: 12-14 KJV)
This is the way of truth, it is the way of God, and anything different than this, no matter how it may be “dressed up”, or even if it is referred to by many as wise, modern, or progressive, will be shown to be confusion and error, and will promote confusion and loss, and eventually the very judgment of God.
