There are so very many people who think they are right in saying that women are ‘out’ of it.
I will try to show you something which I sincerely hope you can receive and at least pray about this.
Jesus said Take HEED HOW you hear.
What did he mean? There are two different ways to HEAR. One is to HEAR the LAW. The other is to HEAR GRACE.
You may hear LAW from Gen. through Rev.
You may hear GRACE from Gen. through Rev.
Moses, the law giver, was NEVER UNDER THE LAW. Moses found GRACE with God.
Noah found GRACE in the eyes of the Lord. So, see, GRACE was back then; even though, very few found it. Very few find it today.
Enoch had this testimony that he PLEASED God. Without FAITH it is impossible to please God. The law is NOT of faith.
Gal. 5:18–But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
Romans 8:14–For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
v9—But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.
Gal. 3:27–For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
Now, my brother, look at this: IF one has been baptized into Christ (by the Baptism of the Holy Ghost)—that person has put on Christ. That person has become a member of the body of Christ. That person is not male or female; that person is a part of Christ. So if that person teaches what Christ tells them, it is not that person but Christ teaching it.
Paul said they received his words, not as a man’s words, but as the words of Christ; which they were. And not because he was a man; but because he had put on Christ.
The law was in the Garden of Eden; it was the tree of the knowledge of good and evil (by the law is the knowledge of sin)—. Adam chose to disobey God and eat (partake) of that tree. In doing so, he chose death, blindness, darkness and lost the presence of God.
After Eve saw what it had done, she repented and turned back to the tree of life = Grace= faith.
I know this, because after she birthed Seth, she said, God has given ME another seed (the promise of the righteous seed which would deliver her and bruise the head of satan)—in place of Able, whom Cain slew.
She had faith = she believed what God had told her; she was looking for Christ. She had faith.
Adam never repented; his sin is held all through the Word of God. Adam held to the law = the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
Eve held to the tree of life = GRACE. The law is not of faith.
Eve is called the mother of all living (= alive to God)—Adam is NOT called the father of the living; Abraham is called the Father of the faithful.
All those mentioned in Heb. 11–who had faith, had found GRACE. They were not of the law.
You can ‘hear’ or ‘read’ the law = Moses—all through the Word; in every book; including the books of Paul
You can ‘hear’ or ‘read’ GRACE – all through the Word; in every book; including the books of Moses.
It all depends on which spirit you hear. Without the Spirit of Christ, you are none of his. Without the Spirit of Christ, you will hear the law. If you hear the law, or ‘read’ moses, you will never have faith. You will never see the Spiritual truth.
The LAW is the O.T. GRACE is the N.T. (but this does not mean which part of the book you read it in).
That is why you believe women cannot preach, teach etc. It is of the law. You are hearing the law. By the law shall no flesh be justified.
The religious leaders told Pilate, We have a LAW—- and by our LAW Jesus ought to die.
That, my dear brother, is the result of ‘hearing’ the law; instead of hearing GRACE.
May you come up to the Spirit of GRACE. If you go back to the law, Christ is of no effect to you; you fall from GRACE. Without GRACE, you cannot have FAITH;; without FAITH it is impossible to please God.
Without seeing the truth, that in Christ, we are ALL ONE; that the daughters of God can hear and teach the word, you will never have faith.
By your ‘law’, the women ‘ought to die’; for without a personal relationship with our God, we are ‘dead’.
