A Christian Wife is to Obey Her Husband in EVERY THING!
by David J. Stewart
"And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not." óJohn 8:45
Some people just can't stand to be told the truth. A woman wrote me this week, upset over my article A Woman's Role In Marriage. She just couldn't stand to hear the truth that a wife is to be subject unto her husband in EVERYTHING. In the article, I quote Pastor Curtis Hutson (1935-1995, faithful pastor and longtime editor of the Sword of the Lord) as saying...
The Holy Spirit says, "Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. 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. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ. so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing."
She says, "In every thing?"
"Yes, every thing."
I made a mistake as a young pastor that I corrected later. I told a lady, when her husband told her not to go to church, "You just tell him you are going to church anyway. You are going to live for God." I gave her unscriptural advice. You are to be to your husband what the church is to Christ--submissive, obedient.
It is like buttoning up a shirt--if you get one button right, you get the rest right. If you get your role right and keep it right, no matter how much pressure comes--and you can believe there is going to be pressure--it will work out right. A preacher once said, "Do good and it will be good."
I couldn't agree more with Dr. Hutson, and I thank God for his candor in these necessary words. Well, the woman was upset over the Biblical teaching that wives are to obey their husband in EVERY THING! ... "Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing" (Ephesians 5:24).
She argued that a wife doesn't have to obey her husband if he's wrong. In fact, she is wrong. We're talking about obedience here. Some people beat around the bush and allege that being "subject" or being "submissive" is not the same as being "obedient"; HOWEVER, the Bible eliminates all such speculation by associating a wife's obedience with that of the Church obeying Jesus Christ. It would be absurd for anyone to say that the church should be subject to Christ, and submit to Christ, but does not have to necessarily obey Christ.
I know a pastor, who's name you'd almost certainly know if I mentioned him, who teaches this exact heresy (i.e., that wives are to submit to their husbands, but not obey). Oh really? Evidently he's never read 1st Peter 3:6... "Even as Sara OBEYED Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement." The Bible commands wives to obey their husbands in EVERYTHING!!!
Dr. John R. Rice (1895-1980), founder of the Sword of the Lord, author of over 200 helpful Christian books and pamphlets, pastor, and founder of dozens of churches sternly states...
The Bible commands wives to OBEY their own husband (1st Peter 3:1-5). To teach anything else is rebellion against the Scriptures. Dr. Curtis Hutson and Dr. Rice are 100% correct. Ephesians 5:24 plainly states that a wife is to be subject (Greek, hupotasso, meaning, TO OBEY, to put in subjection under) to her own husband, just as she would to Jesus Christ.
Feminism is an Evil Communist Agenda
Feminism has corrupted America's wives, which is why women file for divorce TWICE as much as men. Divorce is a wicked sin of self-righteous hypocrisy. It is evil. In filing for divorce, you are quitting, breaking you're marriage vows before God, and saying that your are not as big a sinner as your spouse; but you are my friend, and in filing for divorce you are committing a sin that perpetuates for a lifetime. You just may be the bigger sinner in God's eyes. You have the LUMBER BEAM in your eye, condemning your spouse by filing for divorce for the TOOTHPICK in their eye.
Every wife who divorces her husband is saying to God... "I refuse to obey my husband and I don't care, and because I am a self-righteous hypocrite, I am focusing on all his faults and divorcing him." There were NO disclaimers in your wedding vows. You promised... "for better for worse, 'til death do is part." I don't care what sin your spouse commits, it may be grounds to leave, but it is NEVER grounds for divorce Biblically. Jesus said to forgive not 7, but 70 times 7 (Matthew 18:22). Divorce is unforgiveness! To forgive after divorce is not acceptable to God, because now you have destroyed your spouse's life and must give account to God. God has promised NOT to show any mercy toward you on judgment Day, because you didn't shew any mercy toward your spouse. You have defrauded and wronged your Christian brother or sister. You are in trouble with the Lord. You may remarry and think you have done the right thing, just as women who have had abortions think they've done the right thing, just as homosexuals who have legally married think they've done the right thing; but they are all shameless, unrepentant, arrogant, wicked sinners in trouble with the Lord.
Feminism is a New World Order Communist agenda, engineered by the demonic Rockefeller slime-ball family, intended to subvert and destroy America's families. Hell will be hot! Communism is a vehicle created by the buttheads behind the New World Order (NWO), which is simply the homogenization of the world's economies, religions, courts, governments and languages. It's all preparing the way for the coming man of sin, the Antichrist. Communism is the tool, a vehicle, by which they corrupt and destroy families, thus weakening the nation as a whole and rendering us slaves to the coming Police State NWO.
Godless heathens always try to justify their sins. Just as those who file for divorce, murderous abortionists are always trying to justify murdering children by abortion. The truth is that there's NOT ONE recorded incident of a mother terminating her pregnancy with a coat-hanger; but that's the issue they always bring up, desperately grasping for straws because they can't find any legitimate reasons to kill another human being. Abortionists are a bunch of liars who greatly exaggerate and distort the facts in order to ease their conscience about murdering children! You know as well as I do that of the 50,000,000 babies murdered by abortion in the U.S., nearly all of them were conceived through consensual fornication.
Using the same twisted and dishonest mentality as the abortionists, feminists today demonize husbands, distort statistics, spew hypocritical claims of domestic violence and abuse, and brainwash wives into filing for divorce. We are bombarded with domestic abuse advertisements everywhere we turn; but you'll NEVER hear one single mention of the wife's role in a marriage. Ever seen any ads saying, "Obey your husband, he's worth it!" No, it's always, "Get out now while you still can." Feminists are a bunch of dirty she-devils! God thinks you are trash by the way. Anyone who works to break apart families is trash in God's eyes. God is angry with you and in eternity you will be very sorry, if not rotting in the flames of Hell forever. All of the lawyers, judges, attorney generals and evil CPS workers who work together to destroy families will be severally punished in eternity. If you don't believe that, then you don't believe the Bible. Psalm 9:17 says that the wicked shall be turned into Hell.
America's Godless Communist society portrays men as abusers, women as victims, and children as belonging to the State. God hates that type of wicked agenda. Police nationwide have been brainwashed in their training to be intolerant, militarized, using ruthless force against families. On the other front, sinful women sit around watching the heathen television (hellivision), being brainwashed that men are all not to be trusted, that all men are the same, deceitful. Women are being lied to by the jerks on television. Consequently, wives have become INTOLERANT of their husbands, ready to dial 911 if a husband even yells at his wife.
And then the thug police, many of whom are feminist trained women, bring out the cavalry ready to do war, kicking the poor guys front door down, doing a police raid on the home, shooting the family dog, terrorizing the family... all because some wife was stupid enough to listen TO THER PEOPLE (you know, like Eve listened to the evil snake in the Garden of Eden). The snake promised Eve a better life, just as the jerks who talk your wife into divorcing you. In reality, she ends up on section-8 housing and government welfare. Liars! Liars! Liars! They all go their merry way like the evil snake (Satan, Revelation 20:2), never to be heard from again, the damage is done and another family is destroyed!
It's utterly hypocritical. Feminists won't dare talk about the wife who doesn't want to cook, clean, be a mother, or fulfil her wifely obligations. The truth about America's skyrocketing divorce rate is that 90% of all divorces are NOT caused by domestic abuse; but rather, by rebellious wives with bad attitudes. Now I'm not defending any husbands who file for divorce, shame on them; however, many American women today have spoiled brat attitudes that are driving their husbands away. When God created Eve, He gave her to Adam, and her sole purpose for existence was to serve and to help her husband (Genesis 2:18). Now how does that compare to the attitudes and goals of most wives today? Carefully notice that God did NOT create Eve to do anything for God!!! Rather, Eve's sole purpose in creation was to help her husband. Extremely FEW wives today are willing to accept their Biblical role in marriage. It is the hardness of women's hearts today that is causing so much divorce (Matthew 19:8).
Get mad at me if you want, I'm going to speak the truth of God's Word. So you're really angry at God. Women are to remain quiet in church (1st Corinthians 14:34), women are not allowed to teach or lead men (1st Timothy 2:12), women are forbidden from wearing pants or miniskirts (1st Timothy 2:9), women are to bare children and guide the home (1st Timothy 5:14), and women are to obey their husband in EVERY THING (Ephesians 5:24).
Sadly, Communism has infected Christian homes as well through secular television, music, movies, public schools, et cetera. Unless you live in a log cabin out away from modern civilization, you cannot escape the decadence, plunder and corruption of U.S. society. You cannot even walk through a shopping mall anymore because Victoria's Secret is no longer a secret, it's in everyone's faces in shopping malls all across America. God is not blessing this spiritual mess! You're insane if you think God is going to bless this wicked nation. So why even sing the song? I cannot! I want God to punish America, because we have already proven that we are stubborn and hard-hearted against THE TRUTH of God's Word. We are on a one-way ride to Hell because of our selfishness, wickedness and rebellion against God. I pray for God to bring evil upon America, to teach us a lesson and then, maybe, just maybe, some of us will repent toward God and do what's righteous.
Feminists... They Just Can't Stand the Truth!
I have received hundreds of letters over the years from people who are trying to find a way around the plain teachings of the Scriptures. Ephesians 5:24 speaks for Itself. Most churches today don't even have the truth, let alone speak the truth. The Word of God is Truth (John 17:17). Jesus Christ is Truth (John 14:6). The Holy Spirit is Truth (1st John 5:6). God must be worshipped in spirit and Truth (John 4:24). 2nd Thessalonians 2:10 tells us that the masses of this world will be deceived by the Antichrist because they don't love the Truth. The Truth is important my friend.
If you are a feminist, God will punish you. If you disobey your husband, then you are a feminist. If you are a Christian couple and you drag your husband through a heathen court system, then you have done great evil against your man. God will punish you in eternity. Communism wants to destroy your marriage and your family; but it cannot unless you play their game. They may steal your kids, and there's literally nothing you can do except hire an expensive lawyers (and you'll pay tens-of-thousands of dollars). But the only way they can ruin your marriage is if you let Satan do so. The worst thing you can do is involve other people in your marriage, because nearly every time they will advice divorce. People are like rats. Church people are no better. In fact, they're more dangerous because you tend to let down your guard around them. The divorce rate is just as high amongst so-called Christians as it is amongst the wicked unsaved heathen world. You can make all the excuses you want in your evil little heart (Jeremiah 17:9), but it won't make any difference in eternity, where you will be judged by God's unchanging Law.
"Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement." -1st Peter 3:6
Feminism is EVIL!
Turned Aside After Satan
