Abba Father, I pray that all whom Ha’Satan has deceived or who have willingly abandoned their specified role no longer live according to his plans for men and women.
The Useless Series Thus Far
Last week and the week before I looked at some individuals that have become leaders within the church whom I labeled useless teats (UT), and at some UT individuals that Yeshua labels snakes, vipers, hypocrites, and whitewashed tombs. Today I look at some individuals who fail to fulfill the gender roles specified by scripture, some of whom may be serving as leaders of a congregation, and the topic of: Head of the Household.
1 Timothy 2:14 – “And it was not Adam who was deceived, but the woman being deceived, fell into transgression.”
Just like the first two humans, today human beings follow the same path – the women continue to be deceived into assuming the role of head of the household and the men continue to allow themselves to abandon that role. These individuals are those who assume they are following in the footsteps of Yeshua, but who are, unfortunately, sailing along in the shoes of Ha’Satan. The first individual to be deceived into this pattern of satanic deception was Eve, and Adam went along with it – even though he was not deceived. But that hasn’t gone well for all the world and universe.
Genesis 3:6 – “When the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was desirable to make one wise, she took from its fruit and ate . . .”
Eve is the first woman Ha’Satan deceived into believing that she could be Head of the Household, asserting her will not only over her husband, but also over Yahweh as well. Eve is the first woman that Ha’Satan deceived into believing that she could assume the role of a male, and all would be well. But all was not well – increased pain in childbirth was the immediate consequence, with other unspoken consequences to follow.
Genesis 3:12 – “The man said, “The woman whom You gave to be with me, she gave me from the tree, and I ate.”
Adam was the first man that allowed himself to submit himself to his wife’s authority. Adam became, through his own will, the first man to assume the role of a female and abandon his role as Head of the Household. But all was not well – food must now be found through sweat and toil, the ground becomes cursed with thistles and weeds, with other unspoken consequences to follow.
Consequences Beyond Pain and Toil
Romans 5:12 – “By one man sin entered into the world.” (see also 1 Corinthians 15:22, 15:45; and Romans 5:15)
Despite Eve’s being deceived and her immediate usurping of authority, it was Adam to whom sin was attributed. Sin was attributed to Adam because it was to Adam whom Yahweh gave the headship. As Head of the Household, it was Adam’s duty to and responsibility to defend his household from all error, sin and threat. Eve should not have had to face the devil and answer him alone. Pain in childbirth, and sweat and toil were simply the first of many consequences. Murder, lying and rebellion followed close behind.
By the time Noah was born, Ha’Satan’s messengers, the fallen angels, were mating with human women and producing the giants, the mighty men of renown, the Nephilim. Genetic manipulation of plants, animals, and humans followed close behind. The fallen angels were able to do so because, just like Adam, the men of that generation did not stand in the gap to protect both the women and the “garden” (See 1 Chronicles 11 for Paul’s comments about the failure of men to protect the women from the angels). But all was not well – Yahweh had to flood the entire world.
1 Timothy 2:12 – “But I do not allow a woman to teach or exercise authority over a man, but to remain quiet.”
Paul considered the order of creation of Adam and Eve (and the deception of Eve and lack thereof of Adam) so significant that he listed it as a reason for insisting on male leadership in the church. Any congregation that allows men who are not head of their household to be in leadership is not following this scriptural pattern and admonition. Likewise, any congregation that allows women who have usurped the role of head of their household to be in leadership also is not following this scriptural pattern and admonition.
It is time for people to return to the specified roles that Yahweh commanded for men and women. To the Judaizer’s Paul bluntly and harshly said: “I wish that those troublemakers who want to mutilate you by circumcision would go the whole way and castrate themselves” (Galatians 5:12). I can see Paul today scratching his head and just as bluntly and harshly saying: “Since you both reject the role specific to your gender in your hearts, ya’all might as well make the outside match the inside. If a man wants to give up his headship, then why not go all the way and have your gender reassigned – go ahead, castrate yourself then have a vagina installed instead. Likewise, if a woman wants to be head of household, why not go all the way and have your gender reassigned – go ahead, sew up your vagina then have a penis and testicles installed instead.”
Scripture teaches of the headship of the husband in both marriage and in the church, where submission is specifically commanded of the wife (1 Timothy 2:12-14; Ephesians 5:22; 1 Peter 3:1; Titus 5:2; Colossians 3:18). Today we find many, however, who have been deceived into believing that they can follow Ha’Satan’s plans for mankind – the complete reversal of roles for men and women – and all will be well. But all is not well and as a result the entire creation groans in anticipation of renewal and return to Yahweh’s way and plans. Maranatha, May Yeshua come quickly.
Prophecy continues to unfold as foretold by the Hebrew prophets. The stage is being set. History is moving extremely quickly towards the prophesied one world government, the one world financial system, and the rise of both the Antichrist and the False Prophet. The birth pangs are just over the horizon. Yeshua Ha’Mashiach is coming soon – get busy reaching the lost.
Abba Father, even today, some individuals are rejecting the role specifically assigned to a particular gender, and believe that all will be well. But all is not well and I pray that they will accept and fully embrace the role specific to their birth gender. May they no longer sail along in the shoes of Ha’Satan whether they have been deceived as was Eve, or have willingly rejected their role as did Adam. May they, instead, follow in the footsteps of Yeshua all the days of their lives. In Yeshua’s name I pray and I thank you that all our sins are covered by the precious blood of Yeshua. Amen.
