The author offers a Bible based teaching on how a woman can provoke chivalry from men by her practice of five points of wisdom. This being possible without even a hint of immodesty, or impropriety.
Chivalry– Elements of Wisdom on a Woman’s Part That Will Provoke Male Courtesy
Chivalry: defined by the dictionary as courtesy shown toward women. A practice that many would say is less and less common in American society. I believe this is entirely true, henceforth I offer this article in the hope that at least some who truly desire understand will be spoken to by the insights of this article. For a goodly number of years I have from the depths of my heart prayed to God our savior, petitioning Him for an out pouring of the Holy Spirit, with one of the manifestations of His presence being that there will be a noted, yes, even a fantastically noticed turning of our America people to what the Bible refers to as the wisdom of the wise. What is the wisdom of the wise? Simply, the wisdom to conduct one’s self in accordance with Yehovah’s commandments. Only those that are exercised in this wisdom can know the good of it. An example of the proof of this wisdom is that women who practice godly wisdom will be shown chivalry. That is the reason for the statement of Yeshua: Wisdom is justified by her children. (Matthew 11:19) Obedience to Yehovah’s wisdom brings positive results.
Before I begin into the meat of this message I will endeavor to first draw a picture so that you the reader can be aided to better comprehend the workings of God. Yehovah is infinitely bigger and higher then what we are. Even the Apostle Paul with the extreme revelations given to him described the Lord in Romans 11:33 in this manner: “O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments, and His ways past finding out. For who hath known the mind of the Lord? Or who hath been His counselor? Or who hath first given to Him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again? For of Him, and through Him, and to Him, are all things: to whom be glory forever. Amen” Yehovah, the great Eternal One sits in heaven, we as men are on earth. Perhaps we could be described before Him as what an insect is before us. Very small, yet possessing life and certain understanding. Oh yes, men are exceedingly greater then insects, but before God in heaven we are very very small, very very weak, and in our own wisdom very very foolish. Therefore, it is only by the obedience of His commandments that we can be brought by the Holy Spirit into His wisdom and realize the benefits of His salvation. Now, please listen very carefully. In regards to His laws, we are very much like little children before their parents who do not understand the need to obey their parents. Young children do not understand the depth of reasoning that a parent has when a parent tells them to do, or not to do any certain thing, yet in time, and as they learn to obey they will come to understand why their parents put restrictions upon them. Likewise, it is upon obedience to Yehovah’s laws that our understanding is open to perceive the reasoning for the commandment, the particular benefits of obedience.
Varied Commandments of God and the Reasoning Behind Them
The chief reason for the lack of chivalry in America today is the lack of the practice of godly manhood and womanhood, and the whole reason for the lack of godly man and womanhood in America today is ignorance and rejection of God’s commandments, particularly in respect to the issues of headship that exists in the man-woman relationship. In order for chivalry to work among men and women we must learn to maximize manhood, and maximized womanhood, but this is only possible by obedience to the Holy Scriptures, for the carnal reasoning of man cannot produce godly man and womanhood.
The Scripture gives command for the headship of man over woman, and in particular terms this means husband over wife, father over daughter. In general terms it means that all government, whether civil or religious is to be comprise of men who rule. Commandments pertaining to this issue are found throughout the Scriptures in one form or another, but please allow me to submit a few very pointed examples: Genesis 3:16, Duet. 22:5, 1 Cor. 11: 1-16, 1 Cor. 14:33-36, 1 Tim. 2: 8-15, 1 Peter 3:1-7. Most of these Scriptures that I have listed are what I will refer to as encapsulations of truth that the original authors had gathered from their study and obedience to the Mosaic law, and the ancient Jewish prophets, then condensing that understanding into brief exhortations, (commandments-ordinances) the which they offered to the New Testament Church. We could form a writing based on an exhaustive analysis of the Law and prophets, and point by point come to the same conclusion, but there is absolutely no need for that since the New Testament Apostles did this for us. Our lot is to obey these commandments and to enjoy the fruit of that obedience. And if we will not give ourselves to the obedience of these and other commandments of the Lord, then we shall certain “eat” the fruit of our unbelief and disobedience. This type of negative
