Do you really want Christ? Getting to the bottom of true Biblical Womanhood
Let’s dive in!
A want usually saturates every area of your life. Let me explain. Take myself for an example. I started my health journey at my heaviest 336lbs and wearing a 4x . I wanted to be overweight because I allowed myself to get this way. That was a hard truth to swallow. I worked diligently for many years at unhealthiness. I ate whatever. I had kids without working out after or during. I got more and more sedatary. I sabotaged myself, and slathered shame and guilt on top of it all and gained even more. I lacked self- control. I subscribed to satan’s web of lies podcast and listened intently with every live deception he tried. I surrounded myself with everything I needed to stay unhealthy.
My new want was to be His and submitted to wanting health. Wanting flexibility. Wanting vigor, and the ability to play and fight. My attitude changed. My attire changed. My food and drinks changed. My desires changed. My level of activity changed from sedatary to active. I soon demonstrated a person whose desire is to be fit, and my husband and I are continuing these things. I now am wearing an XL. I have a big weigh in planned for December.
It wasn’t until I wanted to change, and ask God to heal me of the undelying reasons why I was stagnant.
What does this have to do with Biblical Womanhood you may ask? Everything because many of us claim to be Christians and advocates for Biblical Womanhood but not wanting God to be evident in every area of our lives.
Rom. 6:16-18– Do you not know that if you present yourselves to anyone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin, which leads to death, or of obedience, which leads to righteousness? But thanks be to God, that you who were once slaves of sin have become obedient from the heart to the standard of teaching to which you were committed, and, having been set free from sin, have become slaves of righteousness.
*Are you concerned about what God thinks?
1 Cor. 6:19-Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.
1 Cor. 9:24-27– Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it. Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable. So I do not run aimlessly; I do not box as one beating the air. But I discipline my body and keep it under control, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified.
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. Titus 2:3-5 ESV
Discreet-Like a gold ring in a pig’s snout is a beautiful woman without discretion. Proverbs 11:22 ESV
The wisest of women builds her house, but folly with her own hands tears it down. Proverbs 14:1 ESV
Trained: For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it. Hebrews 12:11 ESV
Prayerful.Confident not in ourselves but in the ability of the Lord.
Obedient to God first then to our husbands.
What went wrong ? Many things but to hit on a few.
Without Natural affection
And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Though they know God’s righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them. Romans 1:28-32 ESV
I am Pro- life!
Precious babies -Aborted found in containers discarded like trash.
California and many places agree to make a law that says aborting is legal until 28 days after a baby is born. There are videoes and interviews surfacing for some calling for death up until 10 months old.
Things are growing darker ladies. We who are children of God need to be the lights in this world shining brighter, exposing darkness, and sharing Jesus like never before!
Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith by devoting themselves to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons, through the insincerity of liars whose consciences are seared, 1 Timothy 4:1-2 ESV
But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people. For among them are those who creep into households and capture weak women, burdened with sins and led astray by various passions, always learning and never able to arrive at a knowledge of the truth. 2 Timothy 3:1-7 ESV
So I restate the question. Do you want Christ? Let this question permeate your heart, minds, and souls today and forever. God bless you and remember to trust God Cry Repeat.
It’s not Biblical:
Women Pastors Elder Deacons/Deconess
Adding to the Word of God
Taking away from the Word of God
Cultivating effeminate boys
Tearing down your home with your own hands
* The Bible is very Clear* Not my opinion read the Bible for what it says!
Fearing God has gotten such a bad wrap. Like God is only a soft spoken light tap on the hand type of God. This same God flipped over tables, drowned soldiers in the Red Sea, rose the dead to life, and so much more. We need to heed this warning . God is not a play thing and Jesus is soon to return.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.
Proverbs 1:7 ESV
And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell.
Matthew 10:28 ESV
Blessed is the one who fears the Lord always, but whoever hardens his heart will fall into calamity.
Proverbs 28:14 ESV
A crazy video
Comedian Heather McDonald, 51,collapses just moments after saying she is vaccinated, boosted, and still has her period, proclaiming that she still hasn’t contracted Covid and that “clearly, Jesus loves me the most. Seriously. So nice, so nice.” The next moment she stumbles, rolls her eyes and falls unconscious, hitting her head on the stage floor. The audience can be heard laughing as apparently everyone assumed it was all part of the act.
“I’ve never, ever fainted in my life.” She states.
This video struck a cord in my heart, and I had to share.
God is so merciful to let her make it through this experience. She was openly mocking God. She has a fractured skull and many bruises.
The Word of God warns against bearing false witness as well which brings me to todays portion of scripture.
Aninias and saphrrius
But a man named Ananias, with his wife Sapphira, sold a piece of property, and with his wife’s knowledge he kept back for himself some of the proceeds and brought only a part of it and laid it at the apostles’ feet. But Peter said, “Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit and to keep back for yourself part of the proceeds of the land? While it remained unsold, did it not remain your own? And after it was sold, was it not at your disposal? Why is it that you have contrived this deed in your heart? You have not lied to man but to God.” When Ananias heard these words, he fell down and breathed his last. And great fear came upon all who heard of it. The young men rose and wrapped him up and carried him out and buried him. After an interval of about three hours his wife came in, not knowing what had happened. And Peter said to her, “Tell me whether you sold the land for so much.” And she said, “Yes, for so much.” But Peter said to her, “How is it that you have agreed together to test the Spirit of the Lord? Behold, the feet of those who have buried your husband are at the door, and they will carry you out.” Immediately she fell down at his feet and breathed her last. When the young men came in they found her dead, and they carried her out and buried her beside her husband. And great fear came upon the whole church and upon all who heard of these things.
Acts 5:1-11 ESV
It used be a time where there was an unspoken respect for the things of God. Certain things were just unacceptable in and around the church. Secular Music wasn’t played, there was a willingness to preserve the sanctity of the house of the Lord, and their was more emphasis put on preaching instead of entertainment.
We as women of God have to remember that we can not allow the world to soften our hearts toward God. We serve the only one truly and living God and as loving as He is He can not change His truth to be more palatable. So we shouldn’t either. The Bible says in Hebrews chapter 4:12- For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
Hebrews 4:12 ESV
Let’s check ourselves and make sure we are honoring God above all else.
Trust God Cry Repeat.
