A Woman's Place Is In The Home
By David J. Stewart
1st Timothy 5:14-15, “I will therefore that the younger women marry, bear children, guide the house, give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully. For some are already turned aside after Satan.”
is a shame that women today no longer want to be mothers and
homekeepers as the Bible teaches. Communist propaganda has lured
women into the workplace, and the criminal Federal Reserve has
rigged our economy so that women cannot go back due to lack of
finances. It's all a part of the New World Order's plan to destroy
Don't believe it?
The picture to the left is only a dream these days for most children and husbands. It takes several hours to cook main course dinners like that. There is a woeful need for mothers in America. How sad that most families today eat microwaved and instant foods. We've lost the American dream.
The Bible teaches that a
woman's place is in the home. God did not intend for women to wear a
uniform, carry a gun and police men in society. God did not intend
for women to wear business suits, carry briefcases and fight in
court as attorneys. God did not intend for women to become shrinks,
messing with other people's brains. God did not intend for women to
join the army and go through boot camp, crawling under barbed wire
and learning how to fire an AK47 rifle. God did not intend for women
to pursue workplace careers. A woman's place is in the home. God
intended for women to marry, bear children (plural), guide the house
(a homemaker) and not give occasion to the adversary to speak
reproachfully (that means stay off the phone, stay out of trouble
and stay home).
The Woman Is To Guide The House
Proverbs 31:10, “Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.”
1st Timothy 5:14-15, “I will therefore that the younger women marry, bear children, GUIDE THE HOUSE, give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully. For some are already turned aside after Satan.”
The woman is to guide the house, that is, everything that involves the care of her husband, herself and her children. We receive an excellent description of what a mother and wife should strive to attain to in Proverbs 31. Few women can claim likeness to the loyal, virtuous, godly, diligent, hard-working, honest, trustworthy, caring and admirable woman in Proverbs 31. She is worth more than fine gold and rubies (diamonds) according to Proverbs 31:10.
The word “guide” in 1st Timothy 5:14 is the Greek Word oikodespoteo and means “to be the head of (that is, rule) the house.” Notice that the Bible says the man is the head of the wife, not the house. The husband and wife have DIFFERENT roles. The wicked world refuses to recognize this Biblical truth. Instead, the unsaved, heathen world has women entering into the military, politics and the corporate world. The Bible says in 1st Timothy 5:15 that they are turned aside after Satan. To choose a career over motherhood is to turn aside after Satan instead of fulfilling God's will for your life ladies. The choice is yours alone to make. What will it be, money or motherhood? You cannot serve both mammon (wealth) and God. Every decision that we make in life is dictated (controlled) by our master—whether that master be the love of money or our love for the truths of God's Word.
Ephesians 5:23, “For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.” You cannot show me one Bible Scripture which says that the man is supposed to be the head of the house. As head of the HOUSE, in the sense of guiding the affairs of the home, the wife guides the family, including the husband. Don't miss this. The wife is the servant, whom Jesus said is the greatest among you.
The Bible teaches in
1st Peter 3:1, “Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own
husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the
word be won by the conversation of the wives.” Notice that
the wife has the power of INFLUENCE over her husband. Biblically,
only an obedient wife who subjects herself unto her husband's
authority is going to win him over to the Lord if that man refuses
to heed the Word of God. By observing his wife's obedience to God
(by her submission to her husband's authority), that man has the
best chance of getting saved. However, a rebellious, combative and
sassy wife will have blood on her hands on judgment day if her
husband goes to Hell.
The Husband Is The Authority In The Home
Please don't misunderstand, the man is in charge of the family; but the wife plays a key role in guiding her home as 1st Timothy 5:14 teaches. The wife does not play a passive role in the family; but rather, an active role as the head of the home. By “head” of the home I do NOT mean the AUTHORITY of the home. The man is the only authority. The only authority which the wife has is delegated by the husband. This is Biblical. Feminism elevates the wife to EQUAL authority with the husband, which is nothing less than a two-headed monster. Someone's got to be in charge.
The man is to RULE over his wife according to Genesis 3:16. A woman is responsible to guide the house, making sure that everything gets done in the family. She fulfills every role IN THE HOME except one, that is, AUTHORITY. The husband has the responsibility of providing, protecting and loving his family. A good mother is strict with her children when necessary, but the rules which she enforces are in agreement with her husband's rules. A home needs rules to live by, just as a society needs laws. Children should have curfews and rules. A godly wife knows that her husband is the boss. Any woman who has a problem with the idea of her husband being the boss is not right with God.
Our American society is totally insane. First women were brainwashed to despise their role as homemakers. Then they were inspired to join the Playboy lifestyle of sexual immorality and abort their babies instead of becoming mothers. Then women became lesbians because living with men became impossible for intolerable feminists. Now homosexuals are getting legally married, our homes are in shambles and our nation is being run into the ground in every way.
If a mother is lazy, delinquent and won't fulfil her duties, then who is going to correct her if not the husband? Should the husband call CPS on his own wife and subject the family to a minimum of 5-years legal entanglement, likely losing the children, a divorce and constant unannounced visits from the State thugs? Only an idiot would say that is the answer. Where is a husband to go if his wife is irresponsible? If he attempts to scold her, even verbally, it's considered abusive if the police are involved and the family is attacked by the insane legal system.
Attending a good church is your best course of action; but even then, well-meaning people often meddle in other people's marriages and problems, causing a divorce. I received a letter from a man whose wife disagrees and continually argues with him over Bible doctrine. He wanted my advice. I recommended that he not argue for the sake of peace in his marriage, but I also advised him to find a church where THE PASTOR teaches women the Biblical mandate for wives to obey their husbands. Many pastors these days are henpecked and afraid to preach against the evils of feminism. It's the pastor's duty to lead the church congregation to keep straight morally, doctrinally and in every other way. People's lives are shaped from the pulpit. God pity the lackadaisical preacher who doesn't do his job by preaching the whole Word of God.
Going to the doctor will result in being prescribed drugs. The answer is good old-fashioned character, which is becoming extinct these days. A century ago one mother could raise 10 children by herself. Today one mother can't raise a single brat without the help of the entire community. America has lost it's character. Many people are weak these days, impulsive, malicious and selfish. Truly, we are living in perilous times which are difficult to endure as 2nd Timothy 3:1-2 foretold.
A wife's authority is
delegated from her husband, not of herself in the home. A mother is
sinning to usurp authority over the father in front of the children.
It is rebellion. Sassy women, rebellious wives and impudent (look of
disrespect) faces are of the Devil. The Bible teaches for women to
be shame-faced, sweet and humble. The arrogant, cocky and boisterous
attitude of American women is 100 times more wrong than the
perceived abuses in Arab cultures where women are required to cover
up and remain silent. American women are out of control, murderers
Submitting One To Another In The Fear Of The Lord
Please understand that the Bible commands for husbands and wives to SUBMIT TO ONE ANOTHER. Ephesians 5:21, “Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.” So a husband and wife should be a team, working together in the Lord instead of against each other. They ought to be pals and friends. If you've been married for 10-years and your spouse is not your best friend in all the world, something is very wrong. Biblically, a husband and wife should seek to work together, making a life for each other, submitting to one another's desires to make each other happy.
The key is that when conflicts or arguments arise in a marriage, the wife is to submit to her husband, trusting his wisdom and judgment in a matter. He may be wrong, but she is still to obey, unless the husband is asking her to rob a bank or something unlawful. Albeit, there is sometimes a fine line between WHEN a wife has a right to disobey her husband. I think if a husband wants his wife to try beer for the first time that she has a right to refuse. However, if a husband doesn't want to go to church and wants his wife to stay home with him, I think she should. Dr. Curtis Hutson agrees with this also.
Here are the dear words of a great man of God, Dr. Curtis Hutson (1934-1995)...
American society is all messed-up these days. America has become so wicked that television commercials are advertising background checks for potential dating couples. It's sad that our nation has stooped to such a point that people are doing background checks on others. In the old days you'd go through a courtship process for a few years, getting to know each other as friends first and building trust; but nowadays everybody wants a quick relationship, jumping into bed after the 3rd date. Nobody trusts anybody anymore. People talk about today's crazy world, which sidesteps the truth of the matter. Why don't we call it what it really is, that is, a sinful world. Sin makes people crazy! Abortion is crazy! Lesbianism is crazy! Mary worship is crazy! Casino gambling is crazy! Public nudity is crazy! Feminism is crazy! Social beer drinking is crazy! Communism is crazy!
There is no law which requires a wife to obey her lawful husband, and so our society is filled with delinquent mothers without a man in the home because of divorce. Many women are becoming lesbians because they cannot relate to men anymore. Feminism has lobotomized them. All across the U.S. millions of young women in their early 20's with multiple children are looking for a husband. American women have become cantankerous nowadays, belligerent, difficult to live with because of feminist indoctrination which makes them oversensitive, intolerant and ultra-paranoid concerning their “rights.” The U.S. military is turning society's little girls into killers on the battlefield. It's a shame. Meanwhile America is dying for a lack of godly mothers and fathers. Public schools teach children their ABC's and 123's so they can work in a factory the rest of their life. A college degree means nothing these days if you expect to get a decent paying job with it. Whereas only 4% of people had a university degree in 1900, about 70% of people have college degrees in 2013... so what's the use of having a college degree if everybody has one? They are becoming worthless!
t needs to be mentioned here that many of today's laws are evil and corrupt, totally oblivious of the commandments of God. As believers we must not lose sight of God's commandments, which supercede many of man's corrupt laws. Abortion should not be legal. It is murder! Same-sex marriage is evil and should not be made legal. Casino gambling is evil and ought not be made legal. There is no honest labor involved; it's a scam. Contractual fine print is deceptive and a type of entrapment and should not be legal. Divorce is a horrible sin and should not be legalized. If a person files for divorce, after about one year the final divorce agreement from the court says that the former couple are free to remarry legally.
May I say, remarriage is the wicked sin of adultery (Matthew 5:32). Just because a heathen court says that you can legally remarry doesn't mean that God says you can remarry. God says that you cannot (1st Corinthians 7:10-11). In the case of one spouse divorcing a mate who doesn't want a divorce, it is also the wicked sin of unforgiveness (Matthew 18:22). So you see that man's laws are often in violation of God's laws and we are commanded to obey the HIGHER powers, which is God (Romans 13:1).
God's plan (as you just read in Ephesians 5:23) is for the husband to be the head of the wife, and then the wife is to head of the family. She guides the house. The mother rules the children. Proverb 29:15, “The rod and reproof give wisdom: but a child left to himself bringeth his mother to shame.” The Bible doesn't say that an undisciplined child brings shame to the father. No, rather, the Bible says in Proverb 29:15 that a child left undisciplined brings shame upon THE MOTHER! Mothers are supposed to spank and discipline the children.
You've probably heard the old saying, “You just wait until your father gets home.” I'm certainly not against such loyalty to fathers, but it would be better, I think, for the mother to learn to discipline her children when the father is not present. There's a science behind the disciplining of children, which every parent should learn about. There's a proper way to discipline a child. You mama's ought to be taking a switch to the exterior of your bratty child. Did you ever stop to realize that God put that padded area in the back for a reason? God made that padded area in the human posterior for spanking! Spank your child! Again, Dr. Jack Hyles explains in detail the proper way to spank a child in his timeless classic, HOW TO REAR CHILDREN. Please read, Chapter 11 - Discipline And Punishment.
All these street gangs in America are the consequence of negligent mamas and absent papas. A family includes a mom and a dad. Albeit, a mother has more influence over a child in the early stages of development than at any other time in a human being's life. Two lesbians and an adopted child are a tragedy, not a family. Willie Nelson had it right when he sang, “Mamas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys.” He didn't say daddies, but mamas. That's Biblical. You mamas are the hope of America's future or the curse. I'm not diminishing the needful role of a strong masculine role model for children. The blame for the mess in America is mostly the man's fault in my opinion. God created man to take charge and lead. When REAL men falter and become scarce in number, then women and homosexuals easily rise to power. We have bratty children running the nation these days. Any reminisce of genuine and respectable men of honor, character and integrity is long gone. I place the primary blame upon husbands and fathers because we are the one's whom God left in charge of everything.
Let me clarify, I believe that most marriage failures are the woman's fault. God created man and gave him work to do; but the wife's work is her husband. If a woman fails as a wife, then she has failed at her life's work in God's eyes. Therefore, and in view of 1sr Peter 3:1, I firmly believe that women are mostly to blame when divorce happens. In fact, it's women who file for divorce at more than TWICE the rate of men in America.
The greatest thing a
father can do for his children (and many father's have learned this
only after losing their children) is to enroll them into a private
Christian school. The heathen influence of other ungodly children in
your child's life is totally destructive. The absence of Biblical
teaching on a daily basis is the bullet in the head of your child
spiritually. Putting your child in the public school system is to
feed them to demons. What a mistake!
The Wife Guides The House; But She's Not The Authority
To be the head of one's family means to rule over, to take charge, to set the ship's course. This is the mother's responsibility. Please note, again, that the wife is NOT the authority of the home. The mother's authority falls under the authority of the father. That is, in a Biblical marriage. In lesbianism and feminism, all is equal. The Bible teaches that Adam RULED over Eve (Genesis 3:16), which was mandated for all mankind. Biblically, men are to lead the business of the church. The Bible does not address a woman's role in society because the Bible acknowledges that the world is a wicked place (1st John 5:19). The world does NOT care about what God thinks. The Bible teaches for women to learn at home from their husbands and not to teach doctrinal matters to men. In short, a wife is to OBEY her husband.
The greatest wisdom that a Christian can have is to understand the importance of AUTHORITY in marriage, the home and the church. Society follows these three. This is why Satan is relentlessly attempting to undermine and destroy the marriage, family and church. Specifically, the Devil aims to destroy the AUTHORITY of these three institutions. The AUTHORITY of the church is the Word of God. This is why the Devil keeps changing and publishing more corrupt Bibles. Thus, man is becoming the authority in our churches instead of the holy Bible. The AUTHORITY of the home is the husband, who is supposed to walk with God and follow the AUTHORITY of the Word of God. The attack is against AUTHORITY these days. That's what feminism is all about. It has absolutely nothing to do with women's rights. It's about rebellion against God-ordained authority.
As further evidence from the Bible that women are to rule over their family is found in Proverbs 31:27-28, “She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness. Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.” As you just read, the Bible says that a godly woman “looketh well to the ways of HER HOUSEHOLD.” The word “ways” in Proverb 31:27 comes from the Hebrew word haliykah and means, “a walking; by implication a procession or march, a caravan.” It means that a woman determines the direction that her family is marching. She controls the future of the family. The father does not determine the direction that the family is walking, the mother does!
In many failed marriages, the wife refused to lead the family. A husband tries to lead his wife, but if she won't be led then the children won't march properly. Children won't obey their father with a pure heart if the mother is against the father. All across America today there are rebellious wives who won't be led. The husband gets upset and argues with his wife most of the time because she won't do as he tells her. She makes excuses and accuses him of picking on her. She is a slackard, half-stepping her duties and lying often in an attempt to avoid being rebuked by her husband. If he doesn't rebuke her, then who will? You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make her drink it.
Feminism has taught women not to be led. Feminism portrays wifely obedience as demeaning, outdated and abusive. You wives who won't be led are causing your family to walk crooked, headed for ruin. Again, the Bible teaches that a wife is the head of the family. The errant idea that Christian wives are supposed to be slaves to their husband is not found in the Bible. The wife is actually supposed to lead the family, and the husband leads the wife. As leader of the family, the wife also leads the husband. The husband rules over his wife and then the wife rules over the whole family. That's why we read in Ephesians 5:21, “Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.” Husbands and wives are commanded to submit “ONE TO ANOTHER.”
A husband who is a dictator is not permitting his wife to rule over the family. A husband is to lead, not force. A godly husband leads his wife and then stands out of the way and allows the wife to lead the family. Many wives cannot lead the family because the husband is over-controlling, abusive and unreasonable. Albeit, the biggest problem in America today is wives who don't rule over the family when the husband gets out of the way. If a husband leads his wife and then she becomes lazy, unreliable and irresponsible, then he has to step back in and monitor her like a baby. Then she gets mad and blames him for picking on her.
This is where many marriage arguments originate, that is, because of wives who won't GUIDE THE HOUSE. Then she gets on the phone and dials the police, goes to neighbor's houses and drags strangers into the marriage... all because her husband is fighting with her because she won't GUIDE THE HOUSE.
In 1st Timothy 3:3 we read that a Christian man who leads a church should be, “One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity.” The word “ruleth” here in Greek is proistemi and means “to stand before, preside.” It means that the husband/father is in charge. A man is to be in charge of his family, and the head of the wife. The children know that dad is boss. But the wife's duty is to rule over her household in the sense of looking well to her family's ways. The saying is true, “A man works from sun to sun, but a mother's work is never done.”
In every case of a wife filing for divorce, she failed at her life's calling. Say what you will, shift the blame all you want, turn your husband into the Antichrist if you'd like—YOU FAILED AT YOUR MAIN PURPOSE IN LIFE! In America today the sin of divorce has become commonplace and epidemic. This is due to the demonic feminist indoctrination of American women through television, music, magazines and secular heathen education. Back in the year 1900 the divorce rate was less than one-percent. The divorce problem became so bad that the U.S. government stopped collecting statistics in the year 2000. Nearly half of all marriages today end in divorce, and increasing numbers of couples aren't even getting married due to the marriage mess in our country.
But you say, what about adultery? Isn't it ok to divorce if your spouse commits adultery? How about murder? How about bank robbery? What if your husband robs a bank and gets 50-years in prison? Is it ok to divorce? No, no, no! That may ruin your plans, but it's the harsh reality of life (Matthew 5:32; 1st Corinthians 7:39; Matthew 19:8). In Matthew 18:22 Jesus taught to forgive 70 times 7 (490 times in one day). In other words, unlimited forgiveness! Don't you tell me that God permits walking out and abandoning your spouse who is weeping in tears, sorrowful and regretful for their sin of adultery, and desiring to remain married with you. Don't you dare! This is a wicked and adulterous generation!!!
A woman, and not the man,
is the head of the family. The husband is the head of the wife, even
as Christ is the Head of the Church. The women who quit, divorce and
then blame their husband for not being what he should be are burning
their own home to the ground. Proverb 14:1, “Every wise woman
buildeth her house: but the foolish plucketh it down with her
hands.” Are you a builder or a destroyer? Which way is your
family marching? The husband leads the wife and the wife leads the
Please Understand The Truth Behind Economic Oppression
America has gone to ruin. What has happened? I'll tell you what has happened... We kicked God's Word out of our schools in 1963. The Bible makes people smart. Without the Bible you're going to turn out a fool. People are idiots today. The Bible gives us wisdom from God, because it is God's Word. The Bible elevates those who believe it, love it, obey it and stand upon it! We've got a society of dummies today who don't care about anything because they've been educated since childhood without HEARING THE WORD OF GOD! They have no faith. People have no faith in God these days. They don't fear God. Romans 3:18, “There is no fear of God before their eyes.”
We live in a society of fools. Women are pursuing careers instead of motherhood. Women are freezing their eggs in cryolabs with intentions of starting a family 20-years later. Career women that do have children turn them over to child care facilities to raise their child. No one cares about your child as much as you. Daycares Don't Care! It's just a job to them!
We don't trust God anymore to provide. Millions of foolish women have placed the desire for mammon (wealth) over their love for God. The Bible says that you cannot serve both (Matthew 6:24). God would rather have you become a poor mother looking well to your family's ways, than to become a wealthy successful career woman with no children or one child that hardly ever sees you. It is entirely a matter of faith in God. Do you trust God to provide for you? The government is FORCING families onto welfare. You have to understand that.
The Feds control the economy 100% via the supply of money and interest rates. They created The Great Depression of the 1930's. Millions of citizens lost their homes and farms. Many commit suicide. In 1930, 2.25 million boys and girls ages 10–18 worked in factories, canneries, mines, and on farms. Children left school to support their families. The coming economic depression in America is going to dwarf The Great Depression by comparison. Right now in 2012 there are 50,000,000 Americans receiving government welfare benefits. The reckless debt spending can only go so far. The bubble must burst. In layman's terms, here's what's happening with our economy.
What I'm teaching you is that the architects of the New World Order don't want you to have a big family. They determined that the best way to accomplish this is to encourage and help women secure loans to go to college and entice them to pursue a career. Make women judges, police and give them government jobs. Get them in the military. This will make it next to impossible to have a family. Instead of implementing a one-child policy in the U.S. like Communist red China today, our nation's secret powers operating behind the curtain in Washington D.C. are using the love of money to downsize families.
Career women are not having big families, and many will die childless. This is the Devil working to ruin your life. God says, have a big family, Genesis 9:1, “And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.” Nothing has changed since God gave this command. Overpopulation is a myth. All of the problems involving overpopulation in the world today are caused by urbanization (cramming people into cities). There's plenty of room, arable (fertile) soil, water and enough resources for hundreds of billions of people upon the earth. God knows what He is doing. The Bible says that wicked people worry about what they're going to eat, drink and how they're going to make it. Luke 12:30, “For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things.” Have faith in God!
Here's a foolish woman who signed up for the military, got pregnant and then the U.S. government handed her child over to CPS and forced her to fulfil her contract in Afghanistan. THEY PUT HER BABY IN CHILD PROTECTION SERVICES!!! She did that to herself by signing up for the military. When you enroll into the military, you sign your life away for 8-years! They can make you stay for 8-years or put you in a federal prison! It's a serious deal.
Oh, I could go on and on. I am your
friend and I'm trying to help you look back over your life one day
with joy, knowing that you did it God's way. I was reading Psalms 33
and 34 today. What beautiful and wonderful Scripture passages.
Psalms 33:18-19, “Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear
him, upon them that hope in his mercy; To deliver their soul from
death, and to keep them alive in famine.” God has promised to
keep alive those who fear Him. Did you read that? Isn't God a good
God! You need to trust God my friend and let the Devil's crowd
pursue a secular career.
Christian College Is Appropriate
Having said all this, I believe that it is appropriate for a young woman to attend Christian college to prepare for motherhood and to be a wife. I am against women attending Christian college to pursue a career instead of motherhood. It's just as wrong to replace motherhood with a Christian career as it is a secular career. God put you ladies here to be a HELP MEET to a husband (Genesis 2:18). God didn't put you here to have fun, enjoy life, work a job, pursue a career or change the world. It's ok to enjoy life, after the work is done. Your family is your work.
It is wrong for a woman to attend a heathen university to earn an accredited degree as an educator. You are walking in the counsel of the ungodly (Psalm 1:1). The pursuit of accreditation in a state university has led to the spiritual downfall of countless young people. You'd be better to have no education than a heathen education.
Ladies can learn homemaking, cooking, sewing, preparation for missionary work with her husband, teaching in a Christian school, learning to play piano, et cetera. There are many wonderful classes available for Christian ladies. There are many good Baptist Bible colleges in America today that I would recommend (but only colleges which believe that the King James Bible is inspired). That eliminates most colleges! Nothing can substitute for a sound Christian education. You don't have to attend college to be a good Christian, but preparation is the key to success at anything in life. It's shocking that most young people don't spend even 5-minutes preparing to be husbands and wives, and mothers and fathers. Public schools prepare youth to work in factories and vote for idiots their whole life, becoming loyal slaves to the corrupt and Godless system. Not one of congress' kids attend public school.
If you attend a heathen state university, you will be influenced for the Devil. You cannot eat at the Devil's table without getting food poisoning. It is wrong for a woman to attend a heathen university to earn an accredited degree as an educator. You are walking in the counsel of the ungodly (Psalm 1:1). Moreover, you will likely marry an unsaved person if you attend a secular university, which is unbiblical and a sin (2nd Corinthians 6:14-17). As a born-again child of God, don't make the Devil your spiritual father-in-law by marrying an unsaved person.
When the children are grown, a woman
may want to go to work in a Christian capacity, or she may choose to
teach herself at home (the good old-fashioned way). In today's
resourceful culture you can learn anything at home. I think all
women should learn how to use a sewing machine, make homemade
sausages and to cook and bottle her own pickles and jams, plant
gardens, bake homemade pies and European pastries, make homemade
ice-cream, knit and crochet, write poetry, learn oil painting, and
hundreds of other interests, et cetera. TURN THE TV OFF!
Why Is One Woman A Total Failure, But Another A Total Success?
Why is it that one woman spends her time drinking booze, smoking, watching TV, gossiping on the phone, doesn't clean the house, has no hobbies or interests, lets her body go to ruin, doesn't study the Bible, and she doesn't care; while yet another woman is a go-getter who plants a garden, cooks recipes, writes poems, publishes her own website, beautifies herself, bakes pies and sugar cookies, studies her Bible, decorates her home, plays a musical instrument, makes homemade clothing and cares.
What gives one woman drive and determination, but the other is unmotivated, silly and a couch bum? In a word, wisdom. Wisdom and understanding. If you are a fool, then you need to study the Book of Proverbs and read it once a week. Every day you ought to read several chapters of the Proverbs and pray for God to give you wisdom and cause you to consider your ways and start to care. It's all about your attitude, and attitude is affected by whether you have or lack wisdom. Proverb 4:7-8, “Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding (MP3 sermon by Dr. Jack Hyles). Exalt her, and she shall promote thee: she shall bring thee to honour, when thou dost embrace her.”
The Bible teaches to get wisdom WITH ALL THY GETTING. That means in every way possible you ought to seek wisdom. Listening to preaching. Reading Christian books. Going to church. I will get me to the great men! (MP3 sermon by Dr. Jack Hyles). Listening to music WON'T bring you wisdom. Most people are infatuated with Christian music these days, which doesn't teach anything. The lyrics of most Contemporary Christian Music (CCM) is all wishy-washy, mumbo-jumbo. Most people don't have enough character to listen to preaching.
I feel so sorry for the man who is married to a bum, the first woman I mentioned. Would to God that every man had the latter type of caring and prudent wife. The Bible says that a prudent wife is from the Lord (Proverb 19:14). Prudent means that she has good sense and thinks before she does.
The Bible says in Proverbs 18:1-2, “Through desire a man, having separated himself, seeketh and intermeddleth with all wisdom. A fool hath no delight in understanding, but that his heart may discover itself.” The key word in Proverb 18:1 is “desire.” The Bible says that she who desires wisdom will separate herself from television, friends and all else to spend time knowing wisdom. Most men and women are complete fools these days, having NO DESIRE for wisdom and understanding. All most people care about is their own opinions and feelings. Wisdom is seeking God's thoughts in every matter.
I read another precious Scriptures today in Psalms 33:11, “The counsel of the LORD standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations.” Isn't that beautiful? The Bible says that God has given the thoughts of His heart to all generations. That's what the Bible is... THE THOUGHTS OF HIS HEART!
Oh, listen my friend, I wouldn't write so many articles for the ladies if I didn't care about helping you and your family. If there's one thing that we all need, it is wisdom and understanding. Again, the Bible commands us in Proverb 4:7, “Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.” I don't know anyone who wants wisdom and understanding more than anything else. Most people want money, sex and good food. Their god is their belly (Philippians 3:19). Many people want happiness and comforts in life. People today love television and sports more than anything else. Talent seeks attention, wisdom pays attention. America is sickly deficient of vitamin wisdom.
The Bible tells us to prioritize getting wisdom and understanding. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. You can't even begin to have wisdom nor understanding if you don't fear God. Psalms 111:10, “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever.” Proverb:9:10, “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.” Jesus said, “SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES” (John 5:39).
Search the Scriptures and you will find, that a woman's place is in the home.
Here's a poem that I wrote today that I hope you will be blessed from reading. I wrote it for the mothers and wives who visit my website, to those ladies who are loyal to your husbands and children...
