WOMEN You are
Gen 1:27 -So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. ( Hey this says that the male and female was created in the image of God. Wonder why Tom if it is as you say why would he create an image of him and not let them be able to tell the world about him. Just does not make any sense to me. 1:28 -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. ( Seems like the woman is also blessed. How is she suppose to be fruitful and multiply and repleshish the earth if she is to keep her mouth shut? This is talking about spiritual things and not about having babies. 1:31 -And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.Luke-1:26-35-001:026 And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth,001:027To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary.001:028And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.001:029 And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.001:030 And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.001:031And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.001:032He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:001:033And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.001:034 Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?001:035And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.Ok allow me to go back and explain these words I have underlined.
This will take a lot of time and some hard work to do but if this helps even one person it will be worth it all to me and I also know God will bless me for the effort I have put into this. Praise the Lord and to him be all the glory.
The word favored or favor means the followings- [ friendly regard showed toward another person esp. by a superior-it also means to approve, choose, to show mercy, recover. Then I looked up the word recover to see what it meant and it meant the following-to get back again, to reclaim which means to restore, to recall from wrong conduct, to change from undesirable to a desired condition.
See she was approved of God and changed from undesirable to a desired condition and God showed mercy on her and restored her back to the original state and reclaimed what she was at the beginning a help meet. The word blessed means -to speak well of, praise, to be made holy. From this we see that she was no longer a cursed seed but a holy seed. See she had to be changed because a curse see can not bring forth a holy seed and that’s what he said that she was to do. He said that which is borned of you shall be holy and shall be called the Son of God.
The word trouble means- to be disturb, to worry.She began to worry and to be disturbed about this because she had always been taught that nothing holy could come from a woman because she was still under that curse. The same thing is happing in this day and time. Most everybody especially the church are keeping her under the bondage that God has set her free from. If you remember I said that it was God that set her free go back to vs.30-He told Mary fear not, for thou hast found favor with God. Clear cut evidence that it was God that set her free from this bondage and who God set free is free indeed .So you see women you are no longer under that curse you are free indeed.
Let me show you something here why this curse had to be removed from her before Jesus comes on the scene.
Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
007:018 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
007:019 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. So we see from this that God had to remove the curse that he had placed on the woman before she could bring forth a good seed. He said in the above vs. that a corrupt seed could not bring forth a righteous seed.
The word overshadow means-to illuminate, to supply with spiritual or intellectual light- to exceed in importance, and also means to surpass which means-to exceed , to be or become superior to, worthy to be reverenced. LUKE-1:45-53- 001:045 And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord.
001:046 And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord,
001:047 And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.
001:048 For he hath regarded the low estate of his handmaiden: for, behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.
001:049 For he that is mighty hath done to me great things; and holy is his name.
001:050 And his mercy is on them that fear him from generation to generation.
001:051 He hath shewed strength with his arm; he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts. 001:052 He hath put down the mighty from their seats, and exaltedthem of low degree.
001:053 He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he hath sent empty away
VS.-48-He has regarded- means he showed her respect or to hold her in high esteem Low estate-means she was in a humble or unfavorable position
She was in a position that she could be mighty used of God because she had become humble before God.
Luke-18:14- I tell you, this [woman] went down to [her] house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and [she] that humbleth [herself] shall be exalted.
Now don’t go get upset and say I am changing scriptures to say what I want them to say. All I am trying to do is to show that the woman was in a humble state and by doing this she touched the heart of God and he exalted her. In other words he raised her up from that low estate she was in.
Exalt-means to raise up esp. in rank, power or dignity. She was found to be worthyHandmaiden-means to be a servant. He exalted her so she is no longer a servant but now she is a daughter.
From henceforth all generations shall call me blessed. Who was he referring to here? Was it Mary? No he was referring to his handmaidens. You see what he did for Mary he did for all you women. He removed that yoke of bondage or that so called curse. See God is no respecter or person. What he does for one he will do for all. Praise the Lord
Ok back to Luke 1:48-
from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed. Now all of you that says the woman is still under the curse of that law what are you going to do with this scripture? Tell me how she can be cursed and blessed at the same time.
It said that he blessed her which means to respect, sanctify, praise. That does not look like any curse seed to me looks to me like a holy seed.
Vs.-51- He hath shewed strength with his arm;[ in other words this woman was to his arm to bring forth and birth a man child which was Jesus who was to be his right hand. In other words she was to be his help meet.]
ISAIAH-40:10-11- Behold, the Lord GOD will come with strong hand, and his arm shall rule for him: behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him.
040:011 -He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young.
Who was he talking about here when he said his arm will rule for him? It had to be the woman because he said that they were with young.
Jeremiah-31-22- How long wilt thou go about, O thou backsliding daughter? for the LORD hath created a new thing in the earth, A woman shall compass a man.[ see what was happening over in Luke with Mary the LORD was ushering in a new move of God. The word compass hear means to lead. Need I Say anymore about the woman?
I think not.
Ladies don't be deceived
