“Marriage is honorable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.” (Hebrews 13:4)
We read in God’s word that He created marriage and wants us not only to express our love to one another through it, but to richly enjoy it as well. For in Proverbs, we read: “Let thy fountain be blessed: and rejoice with the wife of thy youth. Let her be as the loving hind and pleasant roe; let her breasts satisfy thee at all times; and be thou ravished always with her love.” (Proverbs 5:18-19) And let’s not forget what Paul the apostle said: “Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband. Let the husband render un-to the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband. The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife. Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency. (1 Corinthians 7:2-5)
Now, those of us who are married should know that the sexual act between a man and a woman can bring about the most intense physical pleasure. And it’s for a good reason. For it’s one of those pleasures of life that brings forth new life into this world. So, this being the case, doesn't it make sense that God would make it intensely pleasurable? And let’s remember that God’s word says: “Marriage is honorable in all, and the bed undefiled” which means marriage is good for everyone and that sexual intimacy is not to be viewed as dirty, defiling or unholy. (Hebrews 13:4) And let’s remember that we ourselves are here because our parents had a sexual encounter as well. And let’s thank God they did.
Of course, we must keep in mind that everybody is not at the same level of faith. And this is true when it comes to sexual intimacy as well. For some whose faith is weak may limit themselves to some simple basics, while others faith may allow them to have more freedom. Therefore, we need to be careful not to put a stumbling block nor a guilt trip on a fellow Christian. For those who limit themselves to the simple basics, should not condemn those who do otherwise. And in the same way, those who have more freedom should not look down on those who don’t. For we need to take heed to what God’s word says and leave all judgment up to God. For its before Him that we stand or fall; and according to his word, he will make us stand. (Romans 14) So, wherever your faith may allow you to go, give glory and thanks to God for it. Amen.
“Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.” (Genesis 2:24-25)
Now, we must stand on God’s word concerning what constitutes a marriage. For if we would look closely at the passage above, we would clearly see that it says that a man shall cleave to his wife. God at the very beginning instituted the marriage relationship as it should be. Also, we read: “And God blessed them, and God said unto them, be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.” (Genesis 1:28) Only through the male and female union can we bring forth new life as well.
Now, according to bible, we see that God created woman from the man. So, the woman and the man were specifically designed for each other. Therefore, it’s only through this type of union can we have a true one flesh relationship. Also, we have the words of Jesus Himself when he spoke to the Pharisees telling them that: “But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife; and they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.” (Mark 10:6-9) So again, we have Jesus affirming this one flesh relationship between the man and the woman. Therefore, anything else would be a sin and thus not a relationship which God approves of. Amen.
Below are a few scriptures taken from Song of Songs showing a couple's desire for each other:
Please note: In reference to that last passage above, to this day there a those who help get the pollination process going by climbing up the date palms trees. For there is both a male tree as well as a female tree. Thus, by taking a portion of the male pollen, they can dust the female palm tree with it. (Song of Songs 7:6-8) So, we can see a clear picture of a man engaging his wife in sex.

“Marriage is honorable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.” (Hebrews 13:4)
Now, because of our fallen state, we may struggle with some sexual infirmity that can hamper a normal sexual act. However, I found in my study of God’s word, that he provides ways for us to still richly enjoy the sexual act. An example of this would be oral intimacy. For there are those who do rely on it to help get things going on the marriage bed. And even for some, this is their only option for sex. Yes, these same couples would have to get creative, especially in your quest to have children. However, with a little help and cooperation from each other, you can work all things out.
So, if you’re one who is struggling in this area of sex, do some research for yourself. For in doing so, you may see the liberties that you and your spouse have in the marriage bed. For God knows our situation and what we may be struggling with. And let’s remember that: “All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not.” (1 Corinthians 10:23) But again, this is only if your faith will allow you to go there. For there may be some who are weak in the faith and only stick to the simple basics.
Now, as mentioned above, there may be some of you who are struggling with conceiving a child. But that didn't stop Abraham and Sarah as well as Zachariah and Elizabeth from engaging in sex even in their old age. (Genesis 21:1-2, Luke 1:24) For we know from the Bible that both these couples were finally blessed with a child. So, whether you’re a young newlywed or well advanced in years, don't stop enjoying sex with your spouse, even in your infirmities. For God is the God of miracles who can make a way for you, no matter what difficulties you may be facing.
Now, I would like to also point out the health benefits of sex for both the man and woman. For science has shown that the man's semen contains components for a woman to have not only a safe pregnancy, but to help enhance her mood as well. Also, there are health benefits in keeping sexually active. This would not only be true for the man and woman, but for the child within a mother’s womb. Therefore, let’s study God's word and: “Trust in Jehovah with all thy heart, and lean not upon thine own understanding: In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he will direct thy paths.” (Proverbs 3:5-6) But as said before, not every couple may agree on what goes on behind closed doors. So, only go where your faith will allow you to go.
So that being said, below is a detailed article on the health benefits of sex. In this article you will find medical studies and research to help you make a more healthier you. So if you're one who is open to learn something new (or to help reaffirm what you already know), then I encourage you to prayerfully read through this article with an open mind and heart.

“You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination.” (Leviticus 18:22)
Now, I know that there are some who may claim that they were born with homosexual tendencies. But even if that were true, that doesn't give any person a license to keep indulging in it. That’s because the bible says: “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23)So, we are all born sinners: “As it is written, there is none righteous, no, not one: there is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one. (Romans 3:10-12)
So, my question is, are you willing to give up what you’re bound to? I ask this because God’s word says that there are some who will not come to the light because they don't want to change. For the apostle John said: “He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.” (John 3:18-21)
And I know from my past experience, that I myself didn’t want to come to God because I wanted to do my own thing. For I thought I knew better when it came to enjoying life’s pleasures. However, I found this not to be true and came to realize that God is not some a kill joy. For God's ways will always bring more pleasure to our lives than when we are wallowing in our sins. And so it is true with sexual intimacy. For the pleasure that can be receive between a man and a woman is far greater than any other way. Now, you may already have failed in a normal relationship. But, have you tried a relationship with the opposite sex while believing in Christ? I say this because with God, all things are possible. So, with his Holy Spirit residing in you, all things that seemed impossible before, are now possible through Christ. So please turn and follow God’s plan and design for you, because believe me, you will not regret it.
“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them.” (Romans 1:18-19)
That passage above is declaring that there are consequences for being disobedient and following after sin. And if we continue to read on in this same chapter, we will see what those sins are. Now, one of those sins mentioned is the homosexual act. For we read: “Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due. (Romans 1:27 NKJV) And please notice that it says there is a penalty for this sinful act. And what is that recompense that they received because of their error? Well, just visit this link below to see that the majority of HIV carriers are homosexual men.
Now, I do believe that this is part of God’s wrath that's revealed from heaven against this shameful act. So, for all you homosexuals, please repent of this sin and turn your hearts to God. And do this not only for your own good, but for the good of others as well. And let’s remember that even though you may escape the HIV virus in this life, you can’t escape the judgment of God that’s appointed after death. For we read: “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment” (Hebrews 9:27)And according to God’s word, those who are homosexuals will not: “inherit the Kingdom of God” if they refuse to repent. (1 Corinthians 6:9-10)
Now, as mentioned above, the homosexual act is a sin that can keep a person from entering into the kingdom of Heaven. Thus, it could separate you from God and send you into the “lake of fire.” This is true people, for we read: “And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” (Revelation 20:15)So let’s take heed to the warnings of God’s word which says: “Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.” (1 Corinthians 6:9-10 ESV)
So, for all who are caught up in this sin, please simply confess from your heart that you have sinned against God. For God’s word says that he will forgive you and wash you clean by the blood of Jesus Christ. For Jesus took the penalty for our sins upon himself through beatings, whippings and being nailed to the cross. Last of all, he spent three days and nights in hell as well, suffering the torment that was due us. “For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.” (2 Corinthians 5:21)
Therefore, by repenting and turning your heart to God, he will give you the strength to overcome any sin in your life. And let us remember: “For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.” (Romans 8:13-14)
So, come to God today, seeking him with your whole heart. For Jesus said: “All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.” (John 6:37) Amen, and thank God for that.
Some scripture reference on this topic:
Male and Female:
To the Reader: It is my intention to remind you, my fellow Christians, of what God’s word says concerning raising children. For we are to teach them straight from the womb to know God and to be respectable citizens. That’s because the first few years of a child’s life are the most important in their development. Therefore, whether you’re a parent, grandparent, older sibling, babysitter, teacher, or one who has the opportunity to say a few words of wisdom, we should: “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” (Proverbs 22:6)God help us all to do just that. Amen.
“That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith, in charity, in patience. The aged women likewise, that they be in behavior as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed. Young men likewise exhort to be sober minded. In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works: in doctrine shewing uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity, Sound speech, that cannot be condemned; that he that is of the contrary part may be ashamed, having no evil thing to say of you.” (Titus 2:2-8)
According to that passage above, we should be teaching our children God’s truths. This we must do by educating them to be fruitful and productive individuals. Young boys at a very early age should be nurtured and guided for a future career that will help them be able to support a family as well as be beneficial to their society. Likewise, young girls should be taught what it takes to be a good wife and how to raise a family. But most of all, we should be teaching them about our Awesome God and Creator, showing them from birth what Christianity is all about. This can even start when they're still in the womb, singing and reading the bible out loud to them. And let’s not forget to cover them in prayers as well.
But what’s really happening in our homes? Well, there are those mindless video games and action movies that put nonsense and violence into kids’ heads. And then we wonder why our youth are numb to violence and are killing each other in schools. Also, there are those silly cartoons, kid shows, Disney movies, and foolish games that they’re being entertained with. Parents as well as our society are teaching and training children to be a bunch of goofballs instead of nurturing them to be productive citizens. Unfortunately, we can see our world starting to reflect this nonsense that’s being taught. And yes, let’s not forget about the Smart Phone addiction that’s captivating not only our youth, but many adults as well.
So, God’s word say to all parents: “And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be upon thy heart; and thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thy house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thy hand, and they shall be for frontlets between thine eyes. And thou shalt write them upon the door-posts of thy house, and upon thy gates.” (Deuteronomy 6:6-9)
Below are a few website concerning child development in their early years:
Now, let’s consider the child Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (whom we know as Mozart). He, even at the age of four, not only already new how to play different instruments, such as the piano and the violin, but also composed his first piano concerto. Leopold Mozart, who was his father and teacher, regarded the blots of ink put down on paper by the unskilled hand of a child with disbelief, realizing that all notes were correctly arranged following contemporary musical rules. From this time on he also taught his son the art of composing: Wolfgang played the melodies on the piano and his father put the notes down on paper. Wolfgang also himself enjoyed singing, a passion that would be his companion for the rest of his life.
So, I don't think this child was fed a bunch of nonsense like most kids get today, but was trained in the “way he should go.” And we can see this to be true with Johann Sebastian Bach and George Frederic Handel as well. All these men were not only musicians at a young age, but were involved with the church of their day. Therefore, fellow Christians, let’s STOP raising our children on worldly nonsense. For we need to raise them as productive citizens who will bare much fruit in this life.
Are you one of those parents who thinks that some soccer or baseball camp is going to make your child a better person? And if so, in what way? Don’t you realize that competition sports are built on pride, the same thing that brought down Satan? For we read: “How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit. (Isaiah 14:12-15)
So, isn’t this true in a sense with competition sports as well? For don’t you defeat the other to show that you are better and greater that they are? Don’t be deceived, why else would you do it? It’s all pride and arrogance people! Therefore, by allowing your children to get involved in competition sports would only build up their ego and pride. This we know is the very thing that God hates. So again, teach them in the way they should go as mentioned earlier.
Also, let’s beware and not forget how many of our youth have died in football alone. Here below are a few clippings from some articles:

Now, we come to the important subject of disciplining our children. For it seems our society today thinks it knows better than God on how to correct children. For His word tells us not to spare the rod of correction, for in applying it you’re actually showing more love than you would if you withheld it. But unfortunately, you can get into big trouble if you take a switch to your child these days. Again, this is because of our corrupt governmental system that thinks they know better than God. But the truth is, all of us were born sinners. Therefore, we need to discipline our children when they get out of hand. For: “Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him.” (Proverbs 22:15) So that being said, let’s stop encouraging are children in the ways of foolishness and instead make them sound Godly people.
Below are a few more scriptures from the Bible that speak on correction:
Below is an article touching on the nonsense of our justice system:
Now, there is one last thing I want to touch on, and that is sex educating our children. I believe we as parents have failed our children in this area by giving them the impression that sex is evil and nasty. For how many of you have talked to your children about sex, explaining to them where babies come from? Didn’t God ordain sex in the first place, telling us to be fruitful and multiply? So, why do we find it so difficult to educate them in this very important part of life? And the truth is, they’re going to find out about it one way or another.
So, wouldn’t it be best that you teach them the truth about sex while they're still young? And this especially before they learn about it the wrong way on their own. For God's word does say to train a child in the way they should go? (Proverbs 22:6) Again in Deuteronomy 6:7 it says to teach them when you're lying down, and rising up as well. Therefore, teaching them about sex at an early age will help them be ready when they find a mate. So, am I suggesting that you have an open-door policy and let your children watch you having sex? Well, even though there are parents who do that, they can end up in jail and have their children taken from them. However, I do believe the worst thing for a couple to do is to panic when their child does happen to walk in on them doing their act. For this will only convey the false message that sex is dirty and wrong. Just consider it sex education up front and personal, and a good time to tell them how babies are made.
In the past and I'm sure in the present, children who have grown up on farms were able to witness some farm animals in their act of mating. This would naturally allow them to ask and learn that this is how creatures, including their mom and dad make babies. So, it would be learning sex education through nature itself. Unfortunately, children these days don't have this convenient way of learning the facts of life. Therefore, it's you the parent that needs to step up and teach them God’s truths on this before they learn it outside the home environment. And please don't rely on our school system to teach your children about sex. For we need to stand up against those in our government who think they know better than God. For to fail teaching your children in this area of life could only bring hardship, not only on your child when he gets older, but on you the parent as well.
Let’s dare to stand on God’s word and not follow man’s false teachings. Let’s use God given wisdom and discernment in everything we do, relying on the Holy Spirit to be our teacher. For: “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” (Philippians 4:13). Amen.
“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” (Genesis 1:26-27)
From the creation account above, I do believe that there was a natural unity and harmony between the man and the woman. And we can see from God's word that man was a vegetarian and ate from the fruit trees and vegetables as well. But most of all, it was that beautiful relationship that man must of had with God, being not yet tainted by sin.
Now for starters, I would like to be clear and say that both the man and the woman are created in God’s image as quoted above. So, this shows that the man and the woman are equal in nature. We are all one in Christ Jesus, for “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.” (Galatians 3:28). The only difference between the sexes is our God given roles that he bestowed upon us. We can see this in nature itself by observing that the males are generally larger and stronger than the females. This would naturally place the males in a place of dominance and rule over the female, but not in any way inferring that one is better than the other.
“Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.” (Genesis 3:16)
Now, because of the fall of mankind and sin entering into the world, things started to change for the worse on the earth. Therefore, God felt it necessary to make it very clear that the man is to have the rule over the woman and she is to be in subjection unto him. We can see this to be true from the passage quoted above. So, let us not believe that before the fall there was no male dominance over the female. For we can mistakenly come to this conclusion. However, God’s word clearly shows otherwise. For in Paul's first letter to Timothy it says: “Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.” (1 Timothy 2:11-14) Also, we have Paul in his first letter to the Corinthians reminding them of the creation order by saying: “For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man. Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man.” (1 Corinthians 11:8-9)
Now, as was quoted earlier in Genesis 3:16, we read that the woman’s desire is going to be for her husband. This is the same wording as it is in chapter 4 of Genesis where we read: “And Jehovah said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen? If thou doest well, shall it not be lifted up? and if thou doest not well, sin coucheth at the door: and unto thee shall be its desire; but do thou rule over it.” (Genesis 4:6-7) So we see in both Genesis 3:16 and 4:6-7 that this word “desire” is speaking of having ones will and way over someone else. Therefore, this should not be confused with some sexual desire. Because God told Adam and Eve to be “fruitful and multiply” before the fall. So, it should come to reason that they already had a sexual desire for each another. Therefore, this word “desire” pronounced upon the woman would be part of the curse. This would be an unnatural desire to have dominion over her husbands. However, God says to all women both in the past and present that “he shall rule over you.” Amen.
So, we must be diligent to stand on the truth of God’s Word. For we shouldn’t try to water it down with our own theology or feelings. Because there seems to be this urge to twist or bend scripture in such a way that it would be appealing to all. (2 Peter 3:15-16) And why is this? Could it be because we’re so afraid of offending people? And It’s no wonder why we have such disorder in the church today as well as in our homes? It’s time we stand on the truth of God’s word and take our rightful places in life. Because to do otherwise would only be thwarting a divine commandment of God.
“And this again ye do: ye cover the altar of Jehovah with tears, with weeping, and with sighing, insomuch that he regardeth not the offering any more, neither receiveth it with good will at your hand. Yet ye say, Wherefore? Because Jehovah hath been witness between thee and the wife of thy youth, against whom thou hast dealt treacherously, though she is thy companion, and the wife of thy covenant.” (Malachi 2:13-14)
It is obvious from the scripture above that God hates divorce. We can see this to be true as well in Matthew’s gospel which reads: “And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.” (Matthew 19:9) So, if a man puts away his faithful wife, it would not only show a lack of honor for her, but could cause her to commit adultery as well. For if she marries another man, whether she is the guilty party or not, both she and the man she marries would be committing adultery. (Click this link for more info on divorce and remarriage)
So, Peter said to those of us who are husbands: “Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honor unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.” (1 Peter 3:7) So, even though the man has a God given authority over his wife, he still needs to treat her with respect. This would include not treating her as some merchandise that can be discarded, as well as not looking down upon her as someone who is inferior. Also, from what was quoted above, mistreating your wife could cause your prayers to be unheard by God.
In Proverbs 31:10-31, it says that a virtuous woman is prized far above rubies and is a blessing to her husband. And let’s also remember that, “Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, And obtaineth favor of Jehovah.” (Proverbs 18:22) So again, a woman is to be honored and loved by her husband. For she is a person that is precious and is just as important in the eyes of God as any man. Amen.
“But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.” (1 Timothy 5:8)
According to the passage above, a man is to be the provider for his household. He’s to do all he can to provide food on the table for his family and clothing on their backs. In fact, according to what’s quoted above, for him to do otherwise, would only cause him to be worse than an unbeliever. And let’s also remember that God’s word condemns laziness and anyone who is a slacker. For, “He also that is slothful in his work is brother to him that is a great waster.” (Proverbs 18:9)
Now, I don’t believe that God is condemning those men who are struggling to make ends meet. For sometimes things happen that can put people into predicaments that are out of their control. But in all things, God will meet their needs and see them through if they trust Him. So, let us men do our best to love our wives according to scripture and teach are children truth. This we should do without being harsh or provoking them to anger. For God’s word says: “And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.” (Ephesians 6:4)
“The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; that they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.” (Titus 2:3-5)
According the scripture above, older women should be passing on to the younger women the important role of being keepers of the home. However, we see the opposite happening. For young women are being shipped off to pursue a degree in some collage so that they can have a career outside the home. Then, when these same women do marry and become mothers, they end up sending off their young children to some daycare so that they can continue working their jobs. All this is not consistent with God’s word. For they should they be at home raising and instilling Godly values to their young children instead of letting someone else teach them? Even the military as well as the police force has opened its doors to woman which goes against nature. For woman are to bring life into this world, not to take it out.
Unfortunately, this is all part of the fall of mankind. For women feel they need to venture in areas that pertain to men in order to be recognized as being important or even equal to men. But the truth of it is, a woman’s role in the home is just as vital, if not even more important than any job outside of it. For she has the God given role to: “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” (Proverbs 22:6)So ladies, what job can be more important than raising a God fearing family?
Now, I don’t believe that being “keepers at home” means that a mother must only stay within the confines of their home. For there are family own businesses which they can be a part of and help to run. This also would be a great way for their children to get involved, teaching them from a very early age how to be fruitful and productive in life. And there are also those women who choose to be single or have not married yet. These same women can get involved in a job in their community as well. But again, this would all depend on their situation at home. For if a mother, daughter or a single woman is needed to stay at home, they should forsake whatever job their doing and attended to their family first. So again, a woman’s first priority is always to be there for her children as well as for her husband. This is not a commandment from me, but from God himself. This is all consistent with God's word which we all need to abide by.
Now, that all being said, I do realize that our current world system (at least here in America) has made it hard for a couple to make it financially with only one person working outside of the home. Unfortunately, we have brought this upon ourselves because of greed. A get rich and let’s retire early mentality can bring a family and nation to ruin.
Now, are you one of those parents that sends your daughter off to some college? Well, you might as well be throwing her into a shark tank and tell her to: “sink or swim honey, and watch out for the sharks.” I say this because there are those out there which have other interests in mind for your daughter, and it’s not for her good. For there are night clubs, parties and all sorts of guys to hang out with. Now, is that really something you want for your daughter? I hope not fellow Christians. So, why not obey God’s word instead and keep her at home until it’s time for her to marry?
Therefore, don’t get caught up in this corrupt system that says you daughter needs a degree to make it in this life, because it's all a lie. For life has gone on just fine for mankind in the past and present without college degrees for women. So again, my advice to you parents is; keep your daughters at home until they’re ready for marriage. They can always help out around the house and find extra work in the local businesses while they’re still single. It's all for their good.
Now, I myself was a High School dropout who got his diploma years later through an online course. However, before getting my diploma, I had some fine jobs that I worked at. This would include working at Rockwell International in various departments where I even obtained a government secret clearance. Also, I was a Senior Technician as a Laboratory Tech at a blood lab, even though I never went to college for this. Again, all these jobs and more I obtained before getting my High School diploma. And it wasn’t until I was around 45 years old that I finally got my diploma. This became necessary because the Laboratory that I was working at said it was a requirement for a Lab Technician. However, I lean all my lab skills on the job, not in some collage. So again, High School diplomas and college degrees are something our current world system came up with. In the past, you learned a trade and became skilled by working on the job such as I did in the Laboratory, not in some classroom. So, we should be: “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” (Proverbs 22:6)
“Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.” (1 Timothy 2:11-14)
It is very clear, both in the Old Testament as well as the New, that the leadership positions in the church are to be held only by men. For this is true as quoted above and also where we read: “Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law. And if they will learn anything, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.” (1 Corinthians 14:34-35)
Now, if we look at the Old Testament, we can see that all the priestly positions were only held by men, not woman. For we read: “And take thou unto thee Aaron thy brother, and his sons with him, from among the children of Israel, that he may minister unto me in the priest's office, even Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar, Aaron's sons. (Exodus 28:1) Likewise, if we look at the New Testament Church, we can see that all twelve of the apostles were men whom Jesus personally chose. So, if Jesus wanted to have women in leadership positions in the New Testament church, wouldn’t he at least have chosen one woman, perhaps maybe Mary Magdalen. But it is clear from Paul’s letters that no woman should take on any form of leadership position within the church assembly. This I believe would be true even if the group is made up of only women. For just as it was with Eve at the beginning, a woman today can be easily deceived as we read in 1 Timothy 2:11-14.
Now that being said, the scriptures do teach that women can take part within the church as prophets and deacons. For we can see that women deacons: “must be serious, no slanderers, but temperate, faithful in all things. (1 Timothy 3:11 RSV)Now it must be understood that this word deacon does not mean a church leader or teacher but one who serves in the church, whether they are a man or a woman. We can see this to be true from Acts 6:3 where Stephen was appointed as a deacon in the church to serve tables. However, it never mentions him as a leader or elder in the church.
Now, I know that some of you may be thinking about Deborah, who was: “a prophetess, the wife of Lapidoth, she judged Israel at that time. And she dwelt under the palm tree of Deborah between Ramah and Bethel in mount Ephraim: and the children of Israel came up to her for judgment.” (Judges 4:4-5) So, while it is true that she was holding these two positions, this still wouldn’t qualify her to be a priest or a religious teacher. Prophets speak as God gives them utterance and Judges administer justice. But that doesn't give them license to take on roles which were not assigned to them. “For every high priest taken from among men is ordained for men in things pertaining to God, that he may offer both gifts and sacrifices for sins: Who can have compassion on the ignorant, and on them that are out of the way; for that he himself also is compassed with infirmity.” (Hebrews 5:1-2)
And let’s remember that even King Saul, who was an anointed King in Israel, got into trouble for taking on the duties of a Priest. “And Samuel said to Saul, Thou hast done foolishly; thou hast not kept the commandment of Jehovah thy God, which he commanded thee: for now would Jehovah have established thy kingdom upon Israel forever. But now thy kingdom shall not continue: Jehovah hath sought him a man after his own heart, and Jehovah hath appointed him to be prince over his people, because thou hast not kept that which Jehovah commanded thee.” (1 Samuel 13:13-14) So, even though Saul was King of Israel, he still had no authority to take on the role of a priest, thus he was removed from being the King.
