In Relationship

“IN RELATIONSHIP”

From

“Works by J.J.”

 

“The head of woman is man and the head Of man is Jesus Christ.”(I Cor. 11:3)

 

This is scriptural, but let me tell you something; although true when all things are spiritually defined, things haven’t been spiritually defined for ages!

A possible mention of this spiritual condition spoken of in the bible, is found in Acts 16:14-15…A certain woman named Lydia, whose heart the Lord opened, so that she attended unto the things which were spoken of Paul; And in answer to the apostle’s need of lodging was able to constrain him, and his group, to stay at her home by facing them with the wisdom of the spirit, saying, “If ye have judged me to be faithful to the Lord, come into my house, and abide there.”

The depths of meaning here is huge, but let’s give it a brief reality…Lydia was of a MEEK spirit, capable of being taught the way of God, and accepting it in her life.

In its wisdom she was able to shrug off the worldly expectation of virtue that would never permit a man to sleep under her roof unless it is in matrimony. Instead, her virtue was cherished in the love of the Lord to offer unto a servant of the Lord the needed comforts. Thus providing more than lip service to the verse: “But speaking the truth in love, {that we} may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.” Eph. 4: 11-16.

The problem of this is the men of today are not in tune with the knowledge of the Son of God in the spiritual sense. And because of this, for the women of today to be MEEK in her submission to man is a gross error of judgment!

I should also draw your attention to the false wisdom of certain men, who prey on the woman’s inner need to find a man of truth, love and wisdom. (Warned of in the bible.)

Those false men who talk of “observations” and “human reactions”, mixed with biblical record, (such as the verse we opened up with,) all just to “appear” wise and knowing; but who’s solutions leave you feeling insecure and confused, in which, you gladly give up your individuality and independence, to let him be your guide and your conscience.

From such a player, who laughs when you laugh and is manipulative in his comments and sexual innuendos…RUN FROM HIM! You are better off being alone and lonely than in his clutches!

So; In relation to the truth, where does the woman turn to for her words of knowledge and guidance into the understanding of the things of God and of life?

Rarely in the church; with over 34,000 different doctrines being given in the churches, the evidence is clear: you won’t hear the answers there! And yet, you will find it written there! In the Bible.

The Bible! In it you can be enabled to see the straight of it all. Go back to Eph. 4: 11-16 and read the earlier verses… “And He (God) gave some, apostles, and some prophets; and some evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ: that we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; but speaking the truth in love…”

It’s in there! The task is, how do we get it out? First, let me say this: it’s not mans fault that he has failed to come into “The unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God;” considering verses found in Isaiah 30: 20, 21 and Jeremiah 3:15 we seem to see that God purposely hid the teachers that are to teach us how to walk in “The Way” so that they can make their appearance in these end-times! We are not to question God’s reason for doing this, but the reason is clear to one who knows of the Way. That reason is: because discipling is more time consuming than converting.

The beauty of the way is it does not require understanding to be saved. That is given when God weights the heart and tries its reins and finds the sincere heart. The discerned understanding that we are told to find follows as we walk in the way. But mostly it’s prevented by satans confused teachings of false doctrines that only serve to satisfy our itchy ears.

Yet, the gospel is preached and it retains the power to reach into our hearts and cause us to identify the true longing of our hearts.

Because of this and God’s promise found in Romans 10:9-10; churches have given birth to many more born-again Christians than would have been made possible if our time was spent on discipling rather than conversions, and satan would have quickly debased all the world, bringing us to an end that much sooner.

With this now in mind, read Isaiah 30:20-21 and see that the teachers will soon be revealed, even now, that are to teach us How to walk in The Way. Which is the same as saying: How to walk in the spirit of Christ Jesus; for Jesus is: “the way, the truth and the life”.

It needs now to be said, how we walk in Christ, having his thoughts, will and emotions become ours in faith and in knowledge.

If you were to witness the person given to teach “The Way” will you be MEEK and learn from him? That is the question you must ask yourself.

Space and time prohibits this sharing now. But should you request to hear a prophet’s word and receive him you shall receive a prophet’s reward; (Matthew 10:41) you will grow in the fruits of the spirit; (Galatians 5:22) you will be sure and certain of your calling and election; (II Peter 1:3-11) you will have a closer relationship with your heavenly Father; (Ephesians 4:17-19) All of which makes for a stronger marriage and personal relationship.

It is important that women learn “The Way”, men are meant to teach it but aren’t. Women who learn it can influence the men of the world to begin to learn it. Let the unity begin!!

Behind every good man is a good woman! The growth of a mans strength of understanding and compassion, Joined with an “Understanding” woman’s strength of emotion and commitment- makes for a better world with Jesus at the helm! Now in love and truth, Then in person!

No longer will the deceitful be able to confuse you and mislead you. And when satan appears as an “angel of righteousness” to lead the world into captivity, every follower of The Way will know he’s a fake! How? Simple! He is a liar! The father of lies, and there is no truth in him. But Jesus is the man of truth! His Way teaches us to be men and women of truth. Knowing God’s love! Acknowledging his Truth.

Satan will tell you to love God, Be at peace with all men, repent and be baptized…BUT He won’t show you how!! His way will have the blind leading the blind! We already have over 34,000 churches doing that! (According to the world Christian Encyclopedia.)

The true teachers will say: “This is the way, walk in it.”  A very simple way it is too! “Learn from me.” saith the lord. “For my yoke is light and easy to carry.”

Walk in the way and the light in the scriptures will come alive for you. I pray you will seek out a true teacher of the way.  Chances are he will be a man, capable of teaching the MEEK.          In Him, J.J.

 

(a word from the author: If you read this and feel it is true but incomplete, you would be right. It was originally written for a woman’s magazine with the purpose of giving them a wake up call in the hope they would want to hear more on “The Way”. If you want to hear more of “The Way”, you need but go to it as the first of these articles on this author’s web page.)
