Weaponized Womanhood

Saying no to

femme fatale

A femme fatale

fĕm″ fə-tăl′, -täl′, făm″ noun

What is a femme fatale?

A femme fatale is-

An attractive, alluring  seductive woman, especially one who leads men into compromising and dangerous situations.

This is the way of the culture and world.

Weaponized Femininity and Womanhood examples includes but not limited to:

(The Stallion, Beyonce, Kardashians and Cardi B mentality.  All are synonymous with Harpy and Jezebel behaviors. ) 

They use sex and provocative clothes to seduce men and women and children. They have a wide influence of perversion. Have you noticed the increase in porn consumption, infidelity, premarital sex, homosexuality, and sexually transmitted disease. 

Women like these and many less obvious examples lay and wait to sink their teeth in to their unsuspecting prey. They wear fake smiles as they manipulate and run churches world wide from a distance. All under the disguise of faux submission. You know who you are!

These distorted examples of womanhood are lies waiting to be torn down.

We are living in a proud lascivious world and this is one of the many hurdles we must address and dismantle. 

I want to encourage you to do your part to break the cycle of cultural nonsense including femme fatale, immodesty, lack of discretion, and impurity. 

I also want to caution you not to follow trends. One trend for example is to put your family on the internet. And I don’t mean posting something that has to do with your family. I mean you get to have a very intimate look into the lives of complete strangers. The more you see the more they get paid to show. Please stop putting your whole lives on the internet. 

This is a subtle and seductive lure to show more and more until you become an influencer worthy of its hire. 

Think about who can see your updates and life events. Then imagine the huge population of perverted people indulging secretly in your life. Gross right?

Protect your families at all costs.

Ladies, another push back and active fight against the darkness of this age is to refuse to raise “maneaters. The “I don’t need a man,” “I can do bad all by myself mentalities.”

It is femme fatale indoctrination of our young daughters. Girls who were entrusted by God to care for and raise to love, serve, honor, and obey God. 

I’ve seen online were women dress proactively parading around with their young toddlers in matching outfits. Grooming their own children to show their bodies and walk to entice men. It’s sickening

The Bible warns in- Matthew 18:6

New King James Vebrsion

6 “But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

Weaponized Nurturing 

Is another form of weaponized femininity. It happens with the ,withholding of nurturing, lacking to develop emotional connections, hugs, and more. All due to anger, frustration, or, past traumas from your childhood.

Fight against it!

Another area is-

Using Your Body Against Your Husband 

Random flash back

I was at work a long time ago when I worked outside of the home. I work at a local pharmacy.

A woman came in and asked for me to help her find something. She started divulging that it was her husband’s birthday coming up and she planned to be intimate. She stressed since it was his birthday.  I was dumbfounded.  How in the world can you survive being intimate only a time or two a year?

I sadly get told things from strangers that say I’m easy to talk to.

Sex regularly with your husband should be the norm. 

Your body belongs to your husband. Its a tool of torture. If you lord over him with it. Give to you your husband what is his!!!!! Satisfy him so that your husband doesn’t find supplements. 

Scripture says:

 Do not deprive one another, except perhaps by agreement for a limited time, that you may devote yourselves to prayer; but then come together again, so that Satan may not tempt you because of your lack of self-control. 1 Corinthians 7:5 ESV

It is attractive to men to see a woman take care of herself. Walk, hit the gym regularly, do jumping jacks, etc. 

Taking care of yourself is a turn on ladies. Genuine non- competitive care of yourself helps marriages.

Conditioning your body regularly for health and not for extra marital lure. 

Holiness and Biblical Womanhood and Femininity is not a way of living for older women, it’s for all women in all walks of life. Teach your daughter to submit, and obey Christ so she will one day submit to their husbands.

Teach your daughters to clean and cook. Teach your daughters not to use her tears, body, and meals to manipulate a man. Feminism’s poisons have been ingrained into life so much so fight against it with all you have and all you are.

Spoiler alert the ” I’m an independent woman I don’t need a man attitude. Is an example of another destructive mindset. The I can do anything a man can do attitudes are just not Biblical.  Biblical womanhood is the standard not all these warped societal norms need to be stopped.

God has given us everything we need to be protected from the schemes of Satan. We fall prey when we negate to put on the whole armor of God. Or chose not to have active faith.

As we find ourselves going the world’s way.

Scripture says:

Ephesians 6:10-19 ESV

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore, take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end, keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints, and also for me, that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel, Ephesians 6:10-19 ESV

Another area to cover is- 

Weaponized Arrogance 

Scoffing

But as for you, teach what accords with sound doctrine. Older men are to be sober-minded, dignified, self-controlled, sound in faith, in love, and in steadfastness. Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine. They are to teach what is good, and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled. 

Don’t scoff at correction 

A scoffer does not like to be reproved; he will not go to the wise. Proverbs 15:12 ESV

The wise woman builds her house [on a foundation of godly precepts, and her household thrives], But the foolish one [who lacks spiritual insight] tears it down with her own hands [by ignoring godly principles]. Proverbs 14:1 AMP

Weaponized Commitment Too busy screams-Quantity over quality 

Weaponized Womanhood regarding commitments also prioritizes activities over family togetherness and puts God dead last if in the equation at all.

 Weaponized Commitments also is in the elevation of our desires. Our desires shouldn’t be put above what God desires for you. Don’t allow your days to be too full of meaningful time with the Lord, with your husband/family, or for you to get recharged. 

A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones. Proverbs 17:22 ESV

Biblical Wives Don’t Degrade 

You are trusted with the most intimate parts of your husband’s life. You should take this position seriously. You should not take advantage of this position to use it to tear down your husband or family.

The wisest of women builds her house, but folly with her own hands tears it down. Proverbs 14:1 ESV

Instead

Titus 2:1-5 ESV

I am absolutely tired of it seeming like the older women are to be discarded in churches instead of honored and listened to. We are not obeying scripture if we are not looking to the older women for instruction, wisdom, and practical application of our day  to day tasks.

Psalm 51:10 “Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me”

Ending Prayer

Lord God, evil is seductive and relentless however we know you are our protection in this fallen world. As the world gets darker let your light get stronger even brighter Lord, we are here for such a time as this, and I pray for you to cleanse our hearts and minds in your name Jesus. Let us not conform to the patterns of this world Lord. Help us detox from the worlds ways in Jesus name. Amen.

Remember Lest You Forget

As we go into a month of prayer next month. I want to hopefully give a glimmer of hope through remembering the goodness of God.

I had a wrestling of sorts lately between not truly understanding how to figure out the next step in some areas of my life and overly focusing on things I can’t control.

My deepest desires are to please God in every area of my life. I know a few areas where the surrendering hasn’t happened because of the fact that my death grip prevented it. That is until today. I was encouraged to look back and remember. 

Many times life does what it does and seems to give us some spiritual amnesia. Forgetting what our Almighty God has already triumphantly done.

What can’t God do? 

Ladies, don’t lose heart. 

Psalms 27:13‭-‬14 NKJV

I would have lost heart, unless I had believed That I would see the goodness of the Lord In the land of the living. Wait on the Lord; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the Lord!

I have seen the Lord show out in my life. I choose to remember. The almost 19 years of marriage. Experiencing God healing my body from several major illnesses. Allowing the news it was physically impossible for me to conceive be reversed as I found out that I was pregnant with our oldest child. I’ve experienced God providing food while making our last meal that was in our fridge and giving our baby most of it all to have a friend surprise us with something to eat. Seeing our oldest in the hospital declining and they doctors saying there’s nothing left to do. Then God turned it completely around. I remember being at the hospital as they tried to convince me that I was miscarrying. This was followed by 8 more months of he’s not viable then being born with no health issues and is healthly and almost 12 years old. I  experienced God reverse a permanent procedure which allowed us to conceive our youngest. I experienced God deepen my faith as He held us as we heard she needs surgery or she’ll die. The surgery could kill her as well. 

So many things to reccount too many for this short time.

He then miraculously keeping her and us through surgery. Keeping life together through her heart surgery and then bringing her off of life support after being on it for 5 days. 

Remember how Christ saved you and kept you.

How He Loved you when you were in some of the worst times of your life. Also how He held me through the losses of loved ones including losing three children.

With Christ the impossible becomes possible!

Matt. 19:26 says

But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
Matthew 19:26 NKJV


Remember ladies !

Draw up God’s resume’ and see that He’s more than capable of handling any situation that comes up in your life. 

Ps 91:1-6 says

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.” Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler And from the perilous pestilence. He shall cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler. You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, Nor of the arrow that flies by day, Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.

Psalms 91:1‭-‬6 NKJV

Don’t let what you see limit how far God can take you .

I’m reminded of a scene from Facing the Giants where the boy said he couldn’t carry a teammate to the desire location by the goal post because the person was too heavy to carry. The coach blindfolded him and told him to keep going and every time it seemed like he was going to give up he kept saying this:

https://youtu.be/fsaKwDPBTeM

Ladies others are watching! So don’t forget to look back lest to forget the goodness of God!!!!!!

Don’t Let Life Dictate Your Peace

I want to tell the truth and shame the devil. It’s not always easy to have peace, or joy but it is something that is essential in this Christian Life. I want to encourage you ladies not to let life and it’s experiences dictate your peace.
Let’s dive in.
I want to start by letting you know about a recent funeral experience that had me live this message before I shared it with you all, and share how God brought me through it and the blessing of seeing my brother. It’ll all make sense at the end.
Here we go!
News spread quickly. My uncle who was only recently admitted to the hospital passed away. A huge lump formed in my throat. Then anxiousness hit me as drama quickly spilled out. So many thoughts and memories flooded my brain. Then all of a sudden a tramatic childhood memory of a family member threathenning to kill me if he ever met me came back. Would he be there? It was his uncle too? The next week flew by and the drama continued. I prayed as often as thoughts of worry popped up. I prayed and even a friend prayed and fasted for the best outcome. Was I marching my family into harms way so many our worries loomed in my head. Prayerfully I entered in the funeral home and I was fighting against fear so much that I was shaking. I just kept praying and sat next to my husband and made it through the ups and downs of service.I will share more later.
Ladies
 There’s so many tactics that has happened in the last several years by evil people doing evil things happening that often times it’s almost more comforting to shrink back. The school shootings, grocery store massacres, daycare slaughters and fear mongering. Makes you want to hide behind all the reasons why not to try to fight well. Eventually becoming less adventurous, not really more aware but more anxious. 
And before you tune this out and say here she goes talking about anxiety again. It’s necessary to deal with the elephant in the room. It used to be a time where you’d feel comfortable going to any outing or any big crowd or stadiums. It may just be me but I don’t think I’m the only one that experiences that uneasiness that comes with just doing things a little bit more adventurously. As the end of days gets closer  it seems like evil imaginations evil practices evil things are ramping up to steal, kill, and destroy just like always.
I don’t want to capitalize on those things that are not Christ-like as to not give glory to them.
I do however want to expose the unfruitful works of darkness and encourage you ladies to stand therefor! Just as I mentioned in the previous podcasts about the importance of putting on the whole armor of God and I’ll say it again. It is vitally important to put on the whole armor of God so that your mind is shielded from doubt, so you are shielded from discouragement, and so that your mind is shielded from fear so that your ears don’t listen to the whispers and lies of satan. So that your heart is not deceived and led away to things that seem good but aren’t good for you. This is something that I’ve been praying about. It seems like it’s so easy not to have right perspective on things because there’s so many delusions going on nowadays. 
Things are appearing one way but they’re certainly not that way. Everything is trying to get redefined by non-creators I hope you caught that.
Logic is out the window these days, but
Remember only God can define what He made.
We as the created cannot overthrow what God says and has set in motion for thousands and thousands of years. Many have tried in arrogance and an error to do just that. 
Pretending like they know better than God and they don’t.
All those things that are ungodly, all things that are put in motion, and all those things that are coming to distract and destroy will fall before our Almighty God. Everything! Every high place, every High ranking  person/ leader /official, everyone will have their reckoning before the Lord.
Ladies,

the Lord is soon to come so don’t get fall for being distracted.
 It seems like evil is going to win sometimes but remember satan is already a defeated foe.
Christ is King and God is still God. Make the choice today to not let past tragedies and past mistakes and past knowledge of things that can go wrong affect your peace.
You aren’t a risk analyst so what does information do for you?
Information like that causes you to stop living in a way. The enemy comes subtly due to his cowardness and you owe to yourself not to stop living before you die because you don’t get any time refunds. 
Live everyday to the fullest. 
Make sure we are applying God’s word. 
Philippians 3:13‭-‬14 NKJV says
Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 3:13‭-‬14 NKJV

The scriptures talk about having your heart and mind guarded by Christ Jesus and that’s paraphrasing so let’s go to the scriptures to see what it actually says. 
Philippians 4:6‭-‬9 NKJV

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you.

Philippians 4:6‭-‬9 NKJV
Enjoy what is written for you.

Psalms 34:4 NKJV
I sought the Lord, and He heard me, And delivered me from all my fears.
Ladies,
Submit to God
Trust God 
Resist the devil
And live ladies. 
Or you can keep getting fed air sandwiches and being told your full. 
Let me tell you about how I was blessed to see
My brother who I seen for about 20 years.

Out of all of the things that I mentioned before this was really a highlight to all the craziness. It was like hugging my dad. He has been gone into glory for 21 years now. It was so good to see him and have dinner with him. Take photos share laughter and just do life together for a moment. At the end was bittersweet as I watch from a distance as he checked out at the register and then scan the door to see if he was still there. He wasn’t he had to get back on the road. So our family gathered our things and proceeded to our car were for a moment I was hoping to catch a glimpse of him still sitting in the parking lot but he was gone. So me and my grown self cried all the way home and some of the night feeling like I would never get to see him or hug him again because it had already been 21 years but that is so good and thankful that he put it on my husband’s heart and my brother’s heart to not ever lose touch again so I’m excited about our future and with that ladies. Always
check on another sister and always remember to trust God as you cry and repeat God bless you!!!!

Strength In Numbers

Community is important. Training and preparation is important.  Staying ready and focused is important in this race  called life.

Just like in 
1 Cor. 9:24-27
24 Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it. 25 And everyone who competes for the prize is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a perishable crown, but we for an imperishable crown. 26 Therefore I run thus: not with uncertainty. Thus I fight: not as one who beats the air. 27 But I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, lest, when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified.

Ladies, condition yourself to have a Heaven bound mindset. Don’t get entangled with this world’s affairs because they lead to distractions. 
Let’s go to the Bible 

Heb. 12: 1-2

1 Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

We are living in a broken world ladies but it’s time to denounce the world’s conditioning. 

I know that trust has been violated in many of our lives in many different ways, but we must not allow those experiences to taint our trust in Jesus! 
Trust God ladies. 
Trust His timing. 
Trust His tactics, and provision. Love Him like never before. We owe it to ourselves to experience the fullness of Christ. God is so good ladies!
If you are walking in a way that will make your confess of Christian a lie Repent and submit to God
No matter the circumstances.

And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
Romans 8:28 ESV

A word of advice
Pay no mind to satan’s lies or you will turn into a spiritual Hypochondriac. You’ll know if this is by answering this question does fear and or anxiety reign in your life?
I encourage you to rehearse the word of God instead. Make Jesus Christ who you run to.

Remember,
Every lie purchased from the enemy will send you to Google. To panic. To fear. To depression without facts.  Without proof. Driving you out of your place. Leaving your sister waiting for the baton. Starving for the hand of encouragement and fellowship. You matter sister in the Gospel. 

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord, and turn away from evil. It will be healing to your flesh and refreshment to your bones.
Proverbs 3:5‭-‬8 ESV

Reach out to each other. Spend time reading and praying. Spend time fellowshiping with one another.

You therefore must endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.
II Timothy 2:3 NKJV

And remember to trust God cry repeat God bless you.

Shrink Wrapped

Ladies,

I’m going to start off with this. It is time out for settling for satans lies.

Don’t give life to satan’s lies. 

Picture this, alie from satan spoken looming around you waiting for you blood bought believer to do one of two things: resist and watch his deceptive efforts disintegrate or trade your peace. Becoming a difibulator charging his lies giving life to his deception as it steals, kills, and destroys. 

The word God says Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

James 4:7 ESV

Are you resisting or embracing?

Let’s dig deeper 

I was afforded the opportunity to share my testimony at an awesome church in Indiana last month and there I had to live this very message out.  

I was there to share my testimony and to offer my 3 books for sell after church. Ladies let me tell you that from the time I accepted this opportunity the enemy got busier and busier. I fell and hurt my knee right before we left , I missed our rental car pickup, and barely secured another rental. Since those things didn’t make me cancel the enemy turned up the heat and the shrink wrapping began. The discouragement tightened. The insecurity tightened, and my eyes were shifting from Christ to satans lies. Shame Tightened up. Wrestling not to let anymore shrink wrapping occur I sat noticeably shaking so much so the pastor asked my family to stand up with me when my time came to share.

After I spoke and gave God glory my husband took my hand and said sturnly and lovingly stop shrinking back! This is your testimony. 

Let’s break it down futher.

You see ladies to be shrink wrapped the plastic around an object is heated to preserve the object.

In real life if we buy into the enemies lies the shrink wrap holds the lies in. As the heat increases the lies choke more life out of us. The more we buy into the lies the more movement is restricted until the shrink wrapped lies are too close to ignore so we become atrophied. 

Break free!!!!!!!!

We all have a testimony and nothing can be used against us. We share to the glory of God . Don’t shrink back. 

Here’s some scriptures to empower you to destroy your shrink wrap this week.

1 Cor 15:58

Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.

1 Corinthians 15:58 ESV

And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.

Galatians 6:9 ESV

Ladies,

Reach out to someone.  Let them know you care. 

Oh, and one more awesome scripture before I close is:

2 Cor.10:4

For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds.

2 Corinthians 10:4 ESV

Wage good warfare this week and as always remember to trust God cry repeat God bless you.
