The Bible says, "There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there isn either male nor female: for yea are all one in Christ Jesus." Galatians 3:28
The work of the Lord is hindered when people try and change whet the Lord has said. I have heard it said that women preachers are going to hell because they are not obeying the word of God. Every time I think about that statement I have to ask, 'how is telling someone about Jesus and salvation going to send a soul to hell?' What about the 'male preachers' that have sexual relationships with the women in their congregation or men with boys/men? What about all the scandals that have taken place by men in the Church? They get forgiven and continue on, but a women preacher is going to hell? Satan, the Lord God rebuke you!!
And the female Pastor?? Hell bound for sure, according to some males. I have heard it said that, "I am not going to sit under no woman preacher. A woman is not to have authority over a man".
Being a preacher does not give anyone authority over anyone else, male or female. God said not to lord over his people. One of the best pastors I had was a woman. She preached the word of God, she corrected, she rebuked, she was an example of holiness. Her gender had nothing to do with holiness. The preached word from her help set me firmly on the Word of God!!
If the truth be told, pride, arrogance, self righteousness, ego plague most male preachers and pastors. Most female pastors have one goal, to please the Lord and see souls saved. Most.
Time is winding up. All this gender stuff needs to stop. People are dying lost and hell bound, which should be the concern and not whether or not the word that saves a souls is preached by a man or a woman.
In Jesus Name, stop it!
In Bible study last night we looked at what the scripture had to say about disobedience as relates to Israel. One person, in particular, was used by God to come against Israel in the man Nebuchadnezzar.
The Word of God told us that because Israel disobeyed, served idol gods and just turned from the ways of the Lord, God used Nebuchadnezzar to invade Jerusalem, take all the vessels out of the temple and then burn the temple down, along with the houses of the people. Judah was spared. Jerusalem was not. II Kings chapter 24 gives the account of this. Also, Ezra 5:12 bares out how Israel had provoked the God of Heaven unto wrath, and God gave them into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, the Chaldean, who destroyed this house, and carried the people away into Babylon. II Kings 24:13 says the treasures were taken out of the house of the Lord, and cut in pieces all the vessels go gold which Solomon king of Israel had made in the temple of the Lord, as the Lord had said. Verse 14 says he carried away all the princes, and all the mighty men of valor, even ten thousand captives, and all the craftsmen and smiths: none remained, save the poorest sort of the people of the land. All of them were taken to Babylon. For seventy years, Nebuchadnezzar ruled Jerusalem (Jeremiah 25:11). For seventy years Israel was separated from God!!
God demands obedience. Striving to obey the word of God has to be the goal of all those that desire to go to heaven. If God spared not his elect, Israel, he is not going to spare the gentiles.
