Too long The Church world has been divided about Women speaking in The Churches.
Still, where is just some of the understanding to be applied from the scriptures?
“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
This is what The Spirit of The LORD spoke to me concerning this recently: “The Church is to be a house of order, not confusion.
Why was the woman commanded not to speak?
She was usurping authority over the man by the way she took over. (1 Corinthians 14:34-35 below)
Where was her place? Beside the man — not in front of him or walking far behind.
I told My Apostle Paul to write it in the pages of My Word, but not as a stranglehold.
The Corinthian Church — check it out,” The LORD further spoke to me.
As I started digging for something to present for those who are still troubled by women preachers, etc.
This article seemed pretty straightforward to put things more in proper perspective of the Corinthian Church.
There are more examples and scriptures just in the New Testament alone I will give at the very bottom.
Now. I present this article I wrote on HKP.
If you can take the time to read this link, I believe it will all better fit together.
We must balance the Word of God out with several witnesses from the Scriptures.
Here are just a few but you can search out many more for yourselves.
“And there was one Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Aser: she was of a great age, and had lived with an husband seven years from her virginity. And she was a widow of about fourscore and four years, which departed not from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day. And she coming in that instant gave thanks likewise unto The LORD, and spake of him to all them that looked for redemption in Jerusalem.” Luke 2:36-38
“Jesus saith unto her, “Mary.” She turned herself, and saith unto him, “Rabboni;” which is to say, Master. Jesus saith unto her, “Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.”” John 20:16-17
“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 any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.” 1 Corinthians 14:34-35
“And the next day we that were of Paul’s company departed, and came unto Caesarea: and we entered into the house of Philip the evangelist, which was one of the seven; and abode with him. And the same man had four daughters, virgins, which did prophesy.” Acts 21:8-9
“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to The LORD.” Colossians 3:16 (do you see ‘one another’ here?)
This is a deep study. and you can go further pulling out the balance of the Scriptures from old and new Testament alike!
Let us dig for truth together, line upon line, precept upon precept!
I pray God bless you all.
