Do you believe a female believer can receive revelation knowledge of the Scriptures as readily as a male believer? Do you believe a woman's spiritual calling is as important as a male's spiritual calling? Does God use males and females equally in His plans and purposes?

Men, women, boys & girls are all subjects of God. All have the potential as conduits of His gifts. Some women & men believe they are above the scriptures & have free reign with all spiritual things. I believe we can only do God's will by staying within His Word. Having revelation of His Word doesn't mean we can bypass His church order. It means we can fellowship, worship, witness, prophesy, & more. But we should not have authority over men unless we are male,have one wife & are called of God to minister.

Why does these types of questions keep popping up? Why does it bother Satan so much, us females, that God has chosen to be used by Him? Now that is an excellent question.
---catherine on 5/6/07

Yes God can use women as much as He does men. In the New Testament Jesus had lots of friends who were monan and He prepared them for special tasks. We are also created in the image of God. 1 Sam.25, Esth.4, 1 Sam., Is. 49, Ezek.16. Phoebe, Junia was some. Read Pauls books. Theres a lot of woman who took up leadership roles.

Apphia, Euodia, Syntyche, Lydia, Mary, Persis, Phoebe, Priscilla, Rufus's mother, Tryphena and Tryphosa were all leaders in New Testament.

THE ANSWERS ARE====YES,YES,YES, AND YES. YOU HAVE TO BE WILLING. GOD, TODAY is looking for some good people. JESUS SAID,"FAITH IN CHRIST JESUS is what makes each of you equal with each other". YOU MAY READ THE REST IN GAL.C. 3
---CATHERINE on 1/18/07

The wife as the weaker vessel is in reference to the church being the bride of Christ. She (the church) will never be equal nor have the say in spiritual matters. That is the reason for the husband/wife relationship. Manifesting what we believe at the throne of God for Him to see and judge. Not carnal "who's bad" foolishness or to keep women under a man's thumb. The Lord can use any part (male/female) of his bride as he chooses. Women can lead when men won't.

Today I watched as a women security Guard wrestled with a thief in a gang of five while several men stood watching. My point she took the job for what ever reason necessary to provide for her family but understand what she had to do. 1. Put her life at risk
2. Apprehend the Man
3. Protect the entire store

While these poor excuses watched.
---Carla5754 on 1/17/07

She retrieved the stolen drink so he was possibly drunk only as the Manager so happen to mentioned to the thief that he was on camera then he returned with the goods after the guard pursued him outside the store and pinned herself between him and his friends. These are the position that women are forced into because of the lack of responsibilities of Men. Many of the men looking were tall strong men. Yet none offered to help her so it is in the church Many excuses but no Responsibility.
---Carla5754 on 1/17/07

My beloved it takes a womb and a seed to produce greatness. Without Mary we would not have the Son of God. God will us anything and anyone whom avails him or her self to Him. He used a Donkey to tell a man in the bible take another road. It's not a man thing or a woman thing. Delight yourself in the lord and He shall give you the desires in your heart. amen...

---earl on 1/11/07

Yes, women can be used of God in His own way not ours..they can receive revelation knowlege of scriptures, just as men would but not to usurp mens position. women n mens spiritual calling are both important and of cause they both are in God's plans only differently. men have their talents n women theirs.

If you don't know what you are not to be, how can you not be it? Could you be it and be unaware?

Again, Biblically speaking,

What does usurping look like?
What does not leading look like?

Sure would be cool to see both men and women reply to both questions.

Kinda get the impression we are so different, maybe we are or maybe we are not.
---TDG on 1/10/07

#1 I believe women can receive knowledge of the Scripture by revelation given by the Holy Ghost as easily as men. Spiritually speaking, there is no difference between men and women because there is no gender to the New Creation life that lives within us. When we become born again, we are no longer who we are in the flesh, but who Christ is in us. When God looks on us, He sees Christ. Whether it be male or female, if they walk in the Spirit, God does not see their gender.
---Debbie on 1/10/07

#2 However, if they are not walking in the Spirit, but fulfilling the lusts of the flesh, it is not Christ that is being seen. They are then operating out of the fleshly realm rather than the spiritual. In that case, God has placed women in subjection to men and if she is married, the man will have to answer to God for her bahavior. Man or woman, when walking in the Spirit which is in obedience to God, will not usurp authority from anyone.
---Debbie on 1/10/07

EMCEE on 1/9/07 #1: I do have some answers. Didn't want to post just yet. Once I do, there is no need for anyone else to bother. :)

previous was a joke.

What does a man not leading look like?
1.) Afraid to make a decision because of the unknown. Ps 23:4
2.) He does not walk by faith, but by sight. He must have total evidence before trusting God. Hab 2:4
3.) He's afraid of not being popular. Some decision is God directed to the man, but will not be popular. Pr 29:25

EMCEE on 1/9/07 #2:
4.) He cannot admit mistakes and/or correct them. Hab 2:4
5.) He's a yes to everything to advoid conflict. Pr 29:25
6.) He run from, instead of dealing with conflict. Hab 2:4
7.) He cannot not articulate the plan of God for his life and if he is marriage, God's plan for his family. Pr 16:3
8.) Doesn't know where he's going or where he want to go. Ps 23:3
9.) If he does know God's plan, he is afraid to do it. Hab 2:4

This is a few. Please add yours to the list.

Eloy, I believe as a woman that I have an important role spreading the gospel in any way I can, However I do not think myself above that which God has annointed to step in front of the congregation and put myself up before the Man Of God to prove I of myself can step into a position not designed for me. However some women do not understand the word SELF and will argue with the word because they cannot accept what is written because it dents their ego. Many will be dissapointed on the day of Judgement.
---Carla on 1/6/07

Debbie, I do believe that God gave man the leadership in the family and also in the church. That said, I believe that God has a purpose for each, man and women. A different purpose because we are different in many ways. Both do not receive the same calling, or gifted with the same purpose in mind. Yet, it is just as important as man's but God does not use both equally. They are different ways He uses woman then with man. And everyone, as a child of God, receives revelation knowledge of Scripture.
---lisa on 1/6/07

2. From the beginning of Genesis all through Scripture man has been the one that God has communicate as authority. Adam over Eve, was an example and all through Scripture God speaks to man more then woman. That the system of God does not show working is only because of the failure of man to take the position. In a marriage it is given to man to be head yet he has failed time and again in doing his job, since many times he is not submissive to God. When that happens everything goes the wrong way.
---lisa on 1/6/07

3. For the very first time I agree with Eloy. Why it fails in that man doesn't submit to God as he should. If he was submissive to the Lord, God's system of things would work perfect. Just think, when a man loves God with all of his heart, his wife would see this love and do the most she could to be submissive to him. But what God installed for us is not carried out as He wanted. So woman many times take charge which is not her calling, but does because no one else will.

4. Eloy is right in his last statement but I don't agree with some of the reasons he gave. He misapplies some things when explaining but his last one I do believe he is correct. In His life, he was responsible for his marriage, in my life my husband was. Many fail marriages are because of the husband's lack of understanding Scripture and following God as he should.
---lisa on 1/6/07

Women can be used by Yah, there is a order in the home, in the church. Men are the head of the woman. so much rebellion to this teaching, women, just say, no man will rule over me. Karen
---Karen on 1/5/07

.darlene, Woman was made for man, but man was never ever made for woman. God did not give leadership of the church to woman, but to the man which he made first in his image. Any woman who assumes leadership in church is not following neither submitting to the authority and order of God, but instead they are following their own desires.
---Eloy on 1/5/07

Some forget JESUS rose from the dead and ascended into heaven. HE is still the head of the church here on earth.The sin of the garden of eden was not a male female thing but both disobeyed GOD.

Do you believe a female believer can receive revelation knowledge of the Scriptures? YES, Eph 1:16-20 Paul's prayer that you might want to start praying for yourself. Do you believe a woman's spiritual calling is as important? YES, any calling that God has placed on your life is important & God does place callings on women's lives. Does God use females equally in His plans and purposes? YES, as a female I believe I need to be under the authority of my pastor and that I am in the will of God.
---Yvonne on 1/5/07

I believe that we are all carriers of Godlyseed. We as women of God do have a purpose and a destiny to fulfill.
If you read Proverbs 10:31 if a man finds a wife he finds a good thing.
I believe that we are women of power women of strength. Just think about it we were so special to God that everything had to be in place before He created us. So yes we do not want to take over,we know what our covering is. And we honour God for making us the head and not the tail.

Darlene expresses it best. I just wanted to add another comment: If God can use a donkey, he sure can use a woman. I don't mean that as a put down to women, by NO means, so please hear that statement with your spiritual ears.
---Donna9759 on 1/5/07

Galatians 3:28 whole chapter is confirming that all who have received Christ,are baptised into Christ are all the same in God's eyes,in Kingdom they have "put on Christ" as shown in Gal 3:27. To say women aren't equal in the sight of God is to call the Word of God a lie and say we aren't all the same to God. God gives all the same salvation. He has made access to the Baptism of HG and Gifts of the Spirit the same for male and female. Why would He give leadership gifts to people He wouldn't use?
---Darlene_1 on 1/5/07

Galatians 3:28. I have never been able to see how people would get gender neutral from this verse; especially since the context is inheritance and promise. But people use this in almost ever place where there is a distinction in gender roles, function, position...

Sound like presuppositionalism.

I guess the best way to call this is "snippet hermeneutics".
---TDG on 1/5/07

You contiue to believe that Paul is outdated and I will continue to believe evey word being inspired of God including his Gospel according to Paul/ Christ Jesus. Either we accept the word or a lie. The church is breaking down In the understanding of prophecies related to the Gospel of Jesus Christ and interpretated to fortune telling, failed healing is down to the person having no FAITH. Doctines of devils are preceived as the word. As for me and my house we will believe THE WORD OF GOD.

---Ella on 1/4/07

since God is always masculine, as the Father; and the King of kings; and the Lord of lords; and also Jesus has a beard; thus the Holy Spirit referred to as He, or the breath of God proceeding from him is likewise masculine, just as my spirit and my breath and your spirit and breath is also matching our body and not gender neutral.
---Eloy on 1/4/07

Unlearned people misapply Galatians 3:28 professing falsehood. This verse refers to God's grace and inheritance being for all flesh without respect to any one race or gender or condition in life (ref: Galatians 2:11-14; 3:7-9,29); and it is Not referring to all things being equal, which is a false gospel; for there most certainly is a distinction between male and female in Christ, else Christ and also his word would be a lie when he commands against same genders being intimate with each other.
---Eloy on 1/4/07

Woman was taken from man's rib; but nevertheless the woman is not man, and the man is not woman. Anyone who wrongly thinks that both genders are equal, need only to try going into the opposite restroom to relieve themself and they will know they are different.

tonne, do you mean to tell me that when Christ returns and resurrects us, we will no longer be men and women? Does that mean Christ was no longer a man when he was resurrected and glorified?

---Susie on 1/4/07

Do you believe a female believer can receive revelation knowledge of the Scriptures as readily as a male believer?
If revelation knowledge is simply saying understanding, then yes.

Do you believe a woman's spiritual calling is as important as a male's spiritual calling? Yes

Does God use males and females equally in His plans and purposes? Generally speaking yes. You will need to be careful when it comes to specifics. After all, there was no way Joseph could have Jesus.
---TDG on 1/4/07

I'm with you on this one, Susie! I know no men who treat their wives as the "weaker vessel." Most men expect their wives to cook all the meals, clean the house alone, and completely care for the kids. However, these big, strong guys also expect their wives to work OUTSIDE the home too and help THEM support the family. I say, you can't have it both ways!!! They certainly aren't willing to do both! Now, who is weaker?

God is not an anarchist, but a God of order. Godly woman accept the fact that they were made by God to be man's helpernmate and to bear him company; and the weaker vessels are truly blessed when they obey his Commandments and submit to his divine way as commanded in the scripture and as the masculine and feminine nature witnesses wonderfully, rather than be selfish and disrespectful to both man and God.

rosem4839, Why do you believe it is outdated? Does your opinion mean that Peter is wrong when he said ALL of Paul's epistles contained the wisdom, given to him, whereby we may be found of Christ in peace, without spot, and blameless? Is it really ALL his epistles except for 1 Timothy 2:11-14?

Sorry, it is not outdated. Paul wrote with 100% relevence. Peter tells us that those who dont understand this will wrest these and all other scripture. Which has been demonstrated.

#1 Revelation knowledge is nothing more than God opening up Scripture and giving an understanding that wasn't there previously.
