.Submitting Oneself unto Unbelieving and Unspiritual Husbands

1 Peter 3:1-2 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; While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear. (Before we offer an in depth examination of this passage in the Greek and discover untranslated power and meaning to this passage, we need to address the leaven of rebellion both in our society and in the church at large that has so harmed the Christian household in this hour.)

American culture was greatly altered in the 1970’s from being a culture of law and order and from American citizens feeling a deep sense of duty, honor, God and country, -- into a faithless nation that today stands against all authority whether it is from government, or from God, or even from those who are in authority within their own households.

When a nation loses its foundation at the level of household and family – that nation and people will meet a sudden and terrible destruction.

In like fashion when a church or denomination loses its foundation at the level of household and family – that church or denomination whether Evangelical, Fundamentalist, Pentecostal, or Charismatic faces obliteration from the hand of God Himself.

We live in such a time as this, where both Europe, and in the United States of America   shall fail, and all of the corrupt churches and denominations shall be trodden down. And we are speaking here of not just old line denominational churches like the Anglican Church, the Roman Catholic Church, and the Lutheran Church but we are speaking of churches and denominations that are bible believing churches and Spirit filled denominations as a whole that shall be utterly destroyed as well.

It is an amazing and terrible thing when in a single generation the Church (And we are speaking here of Evangelicals, Fundamentalists, Pentecostals, and Charismatics) -- have exceeded the lost in fornication, have exceeded the lost in divorce, have exceeded the lost in adultery, and now have exceeded the lost in abortion.  (News articles on these matters are available on this websites News Archive)

One in five abortions in this nation last year were done by people who declared themselves to be Evangelicals or Born Again.

Who could have ever imagined or believed that in the very churches that preach and cry out the most about the coming judgment of God against this nation because of abortion -- that within each and every one of these congregations they would have multiple members that have had and are having abortions?  

Who would have ever believed that in these same churches that droves of single and divorced men and women are committing fornication and adultery while at the same time trying to keep up the charade that they are Christian and Godly church going men and women? (And in many cases the Pastors, Teachers and Elders winking at such brazen sin so as to keep these in their congregations, so they can just keep on receiving these people’s tainted tithes and offerings.)

Who would have ever believed that in these churches that the underage children in these churches youth groups are committing fornication, and then with their mother’s and or father’s consent these are receiving abortions, so that their family can keep up the charade that they are a Christian and Godly church going household?

It is a terrible thing when the nation becomes so sinful, evil, rotten, corrupt, and perverse; but when those who declare themselves to be the light of the world and followers of Jesus Christ become even more evil, rotten, corrupt, and perverse than those that are unsaved – there only remains one thing for them -- the coming judgment of God, and warring against all sin and ungodliness in their midst. 

Hebrews 10:26-27 . . . There remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, (But only) a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, (From God Himself) which shall devour the adversaries (Of Jesus Christ’s words and Commandments.)

Recently (A year ago) I joined a Christian online discussion board a year ago.  The group was composed of some Calvinistic fundamentalists, a large group of Spirit filled believers a few that said they were preachers and the balance of which were old-line denominational members. 

It was some months later that the Lord led me to begin a discussion that as Christians and believers that we are to obey the Commandments and Words of Jesus Christ. This entailing discussion revealed that a sizeable number of these fundamentalists, and Spirit-filled believers,  along with those that had identified themselves as preachers did not in any way shape of form believe that they had any obligations as Christians and believers to obey the Words and Commandments of Jesus Christ. 

The fact that those within this group that would be been most associated with upholding the word of God instead being in such open rebellion, and hostile towards any notion of their of coming under the influence and rulership of Jesus Christ and the obedience of His Words and Commandments – was breath taking to say the least.

And I need to mention here, that this was not an isolated incident. For in no less then three other groups that I came into contact with over the last year, I found the same rebellious sentiments and hostility though not as brazen as the group mentioned above, against coming under the influence and rulership of Jesus Christ through obedience to His Words and Commandments.

Once a church, a denomination, a fellowship or group depart from having their foundation founded upon the rock of the word of God, and in most particular the foundation of the Words and Commandments of Jesus Christ – no matter how they describe their experiences and walk – these have ceased from being Christian, they have ceased from being believers and disciples of Jesus Christ. And have themselves cut themselves off from any redemption and cleansing from the blood of Jesus Christ.


How important are Christ’s Words and Commandments?
The Words of Jesus Christ and His Commandments are what we are to live by and shall be judged by as Christians and His disciples.  If His Words and Commandment are not found in us that is, in our daily walk; then we shall be cast out as we have never come into any intimate knowledge or any personal relationship with Him.

We are now going to specifically look at the Words and Commandments of Jesus Christ concerning, fornication, adultery, and divorce.

Matthew 5:31-32  It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement: But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, (Adultery, or if the unbeliever depart.) causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.

Matthew 19:8-9 He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so. And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, (Adultery, or if the unbeliever depart.) and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.

Matthew 19:17-19 And He (Jesus) said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.  He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

Romans 13:8-10 Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law. For this, (Paul after declaring earlier in Romans we are not under law but under grace repeats the words of Jesus Christ.) Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.

I Corinthians 6:8-10 Nay, ye do wrong, and defraud, and that your brethren. Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,  Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. (Be crystal clear here: Not inheriting the kingdom means  To not be saved, it is not some higher realm or greater existence as many have preached this is all that there is, this is all what we seek, this is the world to come. This is why Christ said straight is the gate and narrow is the way and few there be that find life.  This is in direct contradiction to the broad way do anything you feel gospel and life style that is preached as long as you go to church pay your tithe and worship the Lord. The list above is a list of disqualifications for salvation.)

Galatians 5:18-23 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.  (Paul repeats this again. The list above is a list of disqualifications for salvation.)

Hebrews 13:4 Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers (Fornicators) and adulterers God will judge. (Destroy)

James 2:10-12 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all. For he that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law. So speak ye, (So speak and teach these things) and so do, (And do them also) as they (The obedient) that shall be judged by the law of liberty.

2 Peter 2:13-14, 17 And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you; Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children: --  to whom the mist of darkness (Eternal darkness - Hell) is reserved for ever.  (These verses are an apt description of the broad populist doctrines and traditions that bible-believing and Spirit filled Christians follow en masse today – and what is awaiting such that so walk.)

We live in an epidemic of adultery fornication divorce and abortion in the church. – And

the reason we live in such an epidemic in the church is that Christians of every stripe. Evangelicals, Fundamentalists, Pentecostals, and Charismatics, have no foundation of the rock of the Word of God in their life. Most believers that I have met have never once read the bible cover to cover. They have come to believe that if they mumble a few words about accepting Christ in their heart, that it is now all good, that they have passed from death unto life, and so they do not have to worry anymore about such mundane things as their having to obey the Words and Commandments of Jesus Christ and the Apostles.

Nothing could be father from the truth, disobedience and rebellion no matter where when or what you may have mumbled at some point of your life – brings forth eternal death in your soul.

Life is very simple in the bible, it is a sorting, it is a sifting it is a separating of those who would love the Lord with all their heart with all their mind and all their soul and all their strength, and those who love themselves and the things of this world more than they love God.

And those infected in the church with this epidemic of adultery, fornication divorce and abortion can be drawn directly along those lines as those that love themselves and the things of this world more than Jesus Christ for they obey no His Words and Commandments.

How do we stop this epidemic, in its tracks in our household and church?

Forgiveness and loving fellowship cause us to partake of the cleansing power of Jesus Blood. 

At one time being a true believer meant living a lifestyle of humility and repentance before God and men. If we can not humble ourselves and depart from our pride and arrogance and can not forgive our husband or wife respectively – be assured that Christ in no wise shall forgive you of your sins either. “And forgive us as we forgive those who sin against us.”

1 John 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. (Without this daily forgiveness as commanded of us in the Lord’s prayer, and without that daily deep abiding love and fellowship of respectively our husband and wife, there can be no forgiveness of God, and their can be no cleansing and release from our own sin.)

In the Song of Solomon we find a laver for foot washing before the woman’s (Martial) bed. (Song of Solomon 5:3) – How much more do we need in this hour a laver in the bedroom in which wives that have so much feminist aught against their husbands, and need so to humble themselves daily and wash their husbands feet and dry their feet with their hair as Mary did to Jesus Christ?

1 John 4:20 If a man (Husban/Wife) say, I love God, and hateth his (His/Her) brother, (Wife/Husband) he (He/She) is a liar: for he (He/She) that loveth not his (His/Her) brother (Wife/Husband) whom he (He/She) hath seen, how can he (He/She) love God whom he (He/She) hath not seen? (If we will honestly look at this passage, this verse has most of us dead to rights)

My brother (Wife/Husband) hath sinned against me how many times should I forgive him seven times? Yea I say unto you, you shall forgive him seventy times seven. (In other words Peter was never able not to forgive the Apostle he worked with day in and day out as his brother.)

Matthew 18:32-35 Then his lord, after that he had called him, said unto him, O thou wicked servant, I forgave thee all that debt, because thou desiredst me: Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee? And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto him. (And then Jesus solemnly warned Peter and the Apostles against not forgiving their brothers.) So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses.

Titus 3:3 For we ourselves also were sometimes (Still are)  foolish, disobedient, (Self) deceived, (Living to) serving (Our own) divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another. (As in our husband or wife)

Despite all of these things being spoken by Christ and the Apostles on this subject, over the years and even recently I have spoken to a great many disillusioned and unhappy Christian wives, and ex-wives. I have heard their complaints both privately and in telegraphed in church disguised as testimonies, and prayer requests, and have seen these same women separate and divorce over nothing.

I have been told by these ex-wives of how God has so greatly humbled them and brought them low, and how God has so changed them, of how they were so dominating, but now how God has made them so submissive, and these have also confessed that they purposely used sex as a weapon to deprive and punish their ex-husbands before – but that now with all that God has done in their lives they would never do such a thing again.

Yet when I have asked these same women (If they now being [As these testified with their own words to me]: so humbled, so changed, so enlightened, and know now how to be such better wives and now desire above all to serve the Lord and to be obedient to God in all these regards) with all that God has shown them, and changed now in their lives would they be willing now to return to their former husband they unjustly divorced and show them all of what God has done in them to make them the wives and lovers they never were to their husbands?

In every single case these women have angrily retorted, that they would never return to their “unspiritual” or “unsaved” husbands.  The women that I have counseled in these matters by enlarge are not young or have newly come to the Lord, these women have been saved and filled with the Spirit for as long as three decades and a half decades, and most of these to boot are active in their Church’s ministry as elders, as song leaders, and even in teaching.

And yet hidden from the eyes of their Pastor and their peers these women were filled with anger, resentment, and bitterness, towards their former husbands even after they had been divorced them for five long years.

These same women (100% of them) saw no need at all to obey the Commandments or the Words of Jesus Christ and the Apostles regarding marriage and divorce. And these would not be deterred from getting remarried to someone else, and brazenly declared that they would find their forgiveness from God thereafter.

Long ago the Lord imparted a gift unto me that I little understood, a gift where strangers would feel compelled to come up to me, both saved and unsaved and confess to me their deepest darkest secrets. He also at times has given me the ability to see the thoughts and the intents in the hearts of others. .  

Within the hearts of many that are reading these things hidden behind a thick hardened veneer, within your hear you too have been harboring these same feelings, you feel their stab and thrust in your heart and then push your anger your resentment and your bitterness back  below the surface and then smile and pretend that all is well.

Be warned here and now that this is not forgiveness; this is not release from those seeds that are being watered and grow within your heart and soul. If the truth be known unforgiveness, resentment, and bitterness can not be cast out, and neither can these things be simply prayed or worshipped away. 

If we were to lay out a recovery program from this highly dangerous and corrosive sin  1) Recognize these sins that beset you,  as evil, perverse, and corrupt, and cease all attempts to white wash them or explain them away, 2) Begin multiple times daily to speak directly to the Lord about these sins, and pray for God to open your eyes, and open your ears, and to wash and cleanse you of all of these things, 3) As God begins to move He may well show you instances of your committing sin, act on these things and pray for forgiveness and cleansing of any or all things He reveals that is displeasing to Him 4) Confess your faults to other believers people that you have not sinned against. 5) Go to those who you have aught against, confess your sin, your anger, apologize, make restitution, wash their feet and do these things multiple times coupled with all this prayer and deep repentance until you get release, until you have been purged from these things.

Thy sins be forgiven, go and sin no more. And return now unto thy husband with all love and all affection and all devotion.

In this article though we have spent much time on those who are already divorced and calling out to them for meaningful repentance, towards the Lord and their former husbands.

The true thrust of this article is towards those women that are married, that are increasingly unhappy, because the feminist ideals that they have learned of the world and have been encouraged by the preaching and teaching in their churches, has caused a horrific power struggle in the home.  And that in the course of time these women who feel they are being slighted, and not respected in the ways they have been taught to expect, are building up anger and resentment in their hearts towards their imperfect husbands. So that where there once was only love they now striving against their husband for control of the household as to who makes the rules, they strive with their husbands concerning the household finances and budget, they strive against their husband about the spiritual tenor or the household, they strive with their husbands about even what sex is acceptable and is not, and how much or how little there will be and they strive against a myriad of other things, and in doing so these are tearing down and destroying their own households, and in doing do sinning greatly against the Lord.

Proverbs 14:1 Every wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish (Fool of a wife) plucketh (Greek: Kate-Skaphe – Kate a descending or downward motion Skapto To dig or excavate) it down with her hands. (Greek: Che-R-Sin, Che-Cheilos- Lips, R-Reo A running sore, or A morbid flux, Sin-Sun With or Accompanied with [This is the tearing down of one’s household with the running sore of one’s tongue.  It is the railings, and revilings and forced submission of a husband by a froward wife].)

God hates this kind of behavior. Got hates it when women usurp the place of their husband, either in their demanding to be his co-equal, or causing him to submit to her wishes wants and desires. If these things are not acceptable for the bride of Jesus Christ to do to Jesus Christ her Lord and Master, then these same things are wholly unacceptable to God and Jesus Christ for a wife to do to her earthly husband.

In the beginning Eve came forth from Adam’s side, she was expressly created to be Adam’s helpmeet. The word helpmeet is not easily understood, but if I were to say that Eve was created to be Adam’s minister and to minister to his needs you might get a better picture, but even using the word minister can be misunderstood as many preachers and teacher seek the preeminence among the brethren, and make a prey of their flock, so when the bible speaks of women being created as a helpmeet, or minister, the bible is speaking of this helpmeet as one being a purchased servant who’s duties are to minister to her husband wants and needs.   

Genesis 3:16 Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee. (In other studies we have offered an in depth Hebrew and Greek analysis of this portion of this verse so we will not do so here.  In a simple read of this verse, and in Genesis 2:18 we have succinctly stated here that God created for Adam a “submitted,” “servile,” “helpmeet” expressly for sex and procreation and to attend to a man’s needs and desires.) 

All interpretation of Scripture, the words of Jesus Christ and the words of the Apostles as to the position of women in the New Covenant, as to the meaning of being spiritual, personal spirituality, walking in the Spirit, and walking in obedience to God and Jesus Christ flow forth from a correct dividing of the word of truth of these two passages.

And indeed it does as Jesus, Paul and the other Apostles state over and over that Christian wives and Christian women, (Even Mary the mother of Jesus at the wedding of Canaan.) are to be submitted, and servile. And elsewhere Christ and Paul and the other Apostles state over and over that women’s purpose in Christ with exception to being eunuchs for the kingdom, is to get married. have sex daily with their husbands build a household worthy of Christ and fill it with righteous seed taught in the fear and admonition of the Lord. And in so doing these Christian wives are assured of redemption. (Christ’s word’s affirm this in His statement that in heaven that women shall no longer marry nor shall be given in marriage – [To do what to fulfill their duties in Genesis 3:16 and Genesis 2:18] So that Christ here affirms the duties of Christian Woman, the women of the kingdom have remained the same in these duties)

This cycle of separation and divorce has to be stopped, here and now, beginning at the feet of the feminized Christian wives and feminized Christian women that are future wives to be.

The fight of all feminism, is rebellion against this biblical God created, God commanded submission, unto men where their bodies are not their own, and that the true feminist pioneers knew full well of not only these things, but that a Christian woman is to surrender her will, her wishes, her wants and her desires, and make her husbands will, wishes, wants and desires her own, just as every true believer does so when they come to Christ, and come into His image and likeness. (We have written of these things also in other articles so we shall not do so here)

The rebellion and fight of all feminism is to overturn as much of the purposes and commandments of God, and the words of Jesus Christ and the Apostles as much as possible. For of a truth the bible is the enemy of the whole of feminism, and true feminists make no bones about their hatred of God, the bible, Churches, and men as the head of households.

Regardless of what all other bible teachers and ministries declare in this hour I declare unto you that feminism in all forms and stripes is rebellion against God’s word, and against the words and commandments of Jesus Christ and the Apostles. There is not a feminist lite that is acceptable to God, neither is there a form of Christian feminism that is acceptable to Jesus Christ.

In the Christian Klesia women, (To make myself very plain here in saying the Christian Klesia we are talking here about the whole of the body of Christ as part of the church made with hands that all attend. So that these are those that have not entered into personal justification and personal sanctification [same experience] before the Lord. And this line of having entered into Personal Justification and Personal Sanctification before Jesus Christ and the Father is the true line between the Klesia and the Ek-Klesia. It is the mark of those that shall become the Ek-Lektos of God.) To the women of the klesia, if you examine scripture and the words of Jeus Christ and the Apostles You will find your walk in the gospels, that you indeed walk just as the disciples walked as they followed christ rooted and grounded in selfishness, in carnality and in sin, even though they followed Christ, they forsook many things to do so, they even did signs and wonders, and healed the sick but their combined testimonies are that they were selfish, carnal and very sinful men that were in the flesh and were not able to receive the things of the Spirit that Christ taught and testified to them of for three and a half years. Their uniform testimony declares that these things did not change as with Christ’s death and the shedding of His blood. Neither did the corruption working in their members change in the day of His resurrection, or even when He showed Himself to the Apostles and disciples in personal visitations for forty days thereafter.

Understand here and have no misconceptions or be high minded that somehow you are better than the disciples and the apostles in their walks that heard saw and touched Jesus Christ daily for three and a half years, and did so as carnal unregenerate men. Even though they were with Him. You so walk now despite all the experiences that you can tick off on your list of spiritual attainments.You so walk regardless of what kind of spiritual or righteous image you want to project and proclaim about yourself. And the sooner that you can face up to this and begin to fall upon the stone of Jesus Christ to be broken of all of your pride and selfishness etc. the better, so that you can begin the long road to recovery.

And the evidence of all of this is measured by Jesus Christ himself in your daily sexual relations, your daily devotion to, and your conforming yourself into the image and likeness of your earthly husband. – (For many this words are angering and enraging. And the reason they are so is you have been nailed in the center of your sin and rebellion.)

Submission – and its true meaning as defined in Genesis 2:18 and 3:16 is a dirty word to feminists and to Klesia women. It is the greatest thing in a woman’s flesh that a woman wars against.  This is the reason that the Apostles over and over again exhort married female believers in the early church that they must needs submit themselves, willingly put themselves under their husbands (God forbid or so it is murmured among them) whether their husbands are saved or unsaved, or spiritual men of God or carnal and worldly quasi-believers. (For in the klesia these women use these these very things as an occasion for their flesh and as justificaton for their disobedience and rebellion, and then seek to mask these things as their being spiritual, and their doing so inorder that they might perform their spiritual service.) Spiritual service that is rejected by the Lord.

For of a truth: Except a wife become as a small child; in her love, in her devotion, in her submission, and in her cleaving unto her husband and in her looking to him for all of her physical, and emotional needs, she shall in no wise enter into the kingdom of heaven. (And of these very things we will give further evidence of these very things shortly as we examine the Greek in 1 Peter 3:1-3)

I hear all the time bible believing and Spirit-filled woman saying they have or have had a hard marriage.  That they have or had a partner that did or does not love them.  Or that they were “unequally yoked,” with an unsaved husband, or “unequally yoked,” with a carnal or unspiritual husband, or “unequally yoked,”  with a husband that has bad manners or bad habits, or “unequally yoked,” with a husband hat wants touch them and have sex all the time,  And that for their own “spiritual purity” and or their own “mental well being” that they are “so vexed” and “so exercised” over one or all of these matters that they can not go to church, pray worship, or fulfill their calling and spiritual ministry as they see fit so that they just had no choice but to divorce them.

Their husbands are not the cause of these women’s lack of spirituality, it is their blatant rebellion against their husbands, their misplaced anger, resentment and bitterness in a false belief that their husband is holding them back spiritually, from all the ministries gifts and fellowship that the lying prophets aka their pastors and teachers have beguiled them with so that they will show up to the as many of the local churches meetings and give that church or ministry as many tithes and offerings as they can.

What does God speak of when women in rebellion exalt themselves over their husbands and depart them on their own road to spirituality by attending many meetings without their husbands so as to exercise their spirituality?

Isaiah 29:13 Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men: (Your prayers and your worship is not received of the Lord, and as you will not willingly submit yourself to your earthly husband in all things, so to the Lord will not accept your claims of devotion and love for Him.)

Matthew 7:22-23, 26 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. -- And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, (A Fool of a wife) which built his (Her) house(Hold) upon the sand: (Of religious disobedience, of religious selfishness, dishonoring herself her husband and household before God.)

I Corinthians 7:4-6 The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife. Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent (Consent of who? The husband first and foremost in scripture, and in area of sex the wife having her needs and personal pleasure taken care of can not be minimized as well.)   for a time, (Short time) that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, (Right way) that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency. (For your fasting from the normal daily deep abiding sexual communion Christian husbands and wives are expected to engage it.)

Instead what do we have in bible believing and Spirit-filled churches of this hour we have an endless array of meetings in which typically Christian wives attend. (In other articles I have noted that the churches I have attended have always been predominantly filled with women. On the Tuesday night prayer meeting, on the Thursday night bible study, On the Sunday evening service. And then some of these churches have now local home meetings on the other nights, so that these women are either away at church for have the week or more, after these meetings they come home filled and contented from their having had an emotional affair in the meeting the worship and their male and female friends thereafter  and so having had their needs met by those other than their husbands they come home and roll over and go to sleep or offer at best their husband a emotionless quickie and then rollover and go to sleep.  

So that here in I Corinthians 7:5-6 we find the basis of where a wife’s supposed spirituality, in which they shirk their God given and God commanded duties, they are in fact 1) defrauding their husbands their sexual daily bread, their ministering to their husband, and they are opening themselves and their husbands up to sexual temptations in the times when the are hours upon hours not being with their husbands and being his minister. (I fully realize here that for many I an talking in the wind here. As the heartfelt understanding of these things can only be revealed by the Holy Spirit.)

And of course now six months, a year or two later these now divorced women have now repented of all of that and God has totally cleaned up their act so that now with of course with God’s blessing they want to find for themselves a new replacement husband. One that is more handsome, One that is more well to do, one that is more spiritual, one that is a “God fearing man,” and One that will ever behold them, that will ever respect them (Over himself), and one that will ever respect their views, (Over his own views). 

What is actually being said here is that these divorced women have repented of nothing other than their being lonely.  And that they in all actuality want to trade up their old broken down husband for a newer more flashy model that will let them in fact be as feminist as they want to be, and exert no authority in any way shape or form over them. What they really want is a wealthy good looking slave and part-time concubine. 

So that what we have in essence here is a generation of church going Potipher’s wives, that are seeking out their own Joseph’s to fulfill their every lust and fantasy with. 

We are now going to address the question about a wife being in subjection to an unsaved husband or an unspiritual husband.

Regardless of all the “spiritual” pontificating, (By this we mean being dogmatic unbending and unyielding in the image and likeness of the Pharisees.) “spiritual” posturing (By this we are speaking of the use of deceptive, and deceitful teachings and phrases so as to give oneself cover for their disobedience and sinful neglect to the words and commandments of Jesus Christ.) if we were to judge Christian “feminized” marriage on the basis of in its current doctrine and traditions of men as Christ commanded us to do we would have to declare it evil for its evil fruits as made manifest by the discord between husbands and wives, the nullification of the husband as high priest of the household, the broken down and neglected altar in the household, and the 60% rate of divorce among Christians.

The evil tree and evil fruits of Christian “feminized” marriages along with its current Talmudic doctrine and traditions of men are separation, divorce, fornication, adultery, and abortion. (All of which are firmly rooted in women’s rebellion against the total submission and devotion they are called unto in marriage as commanded by God in Genesis 3:16 and 2:18.)

In the passage below we see what Christ has commanded each individual believer in regard to false teachers and false doctrine. Here Jesus Christ lays the responsibility to judge individuals, to judge ministries, and to judge doctrines and traditions squarely in the laps of each individual believer, and therefore on judgment day each individual believer shall be held accountable and judged by Christ alone on these things, so that none shall be able to say to Jesus Christ or God himself “But my pastor said”, or “But I was taught.” Understand here that the central core of the Gospel has always been is our personal relationship that we are to actively seek after and develop here in this life. Our being individually discipled to Jesus Christ alone, and our individual and personal accountability to Jesus Christ alone for our obedience and disobedience to His words and commandments. By these alone will we be justified unto eternal life, or by these alone will we be condemned to eternal damnation.

Matthew 7:15-20 Beware of false prophets, (False apostles, false evangelists, false pastors, false teachers, and false brethren) which come to you in sheep's clothing,  (When Christ spoke these words His hearers understood Christ to be speaking of false shepherds as the traditional garb of the shepherd was sheep’s clothing. – Here Jesus Christ is commanding individual believers to be judges, and execute judgment upon the ministers over them that they hold in their eyes with their most holy and sacred trust – Understand here that in this commandment Jesus Christ is making each and every believer accountable for allowing themselves to be discipled unto these men, allowing themselves to be spiritually and financially robbed by these men, allowing themselves to be beaten down and conformed into the image and likeness of these men. and ultimately being killed and destroyed so as to end up in hell by following the false doctrines and traditions of these pretenders and antichrists.) but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them (These false apostles, false prophets, false evangelists, false pastors, false teachers, false doctrines, and false traditions) by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? (The answer here is yes. For as the Jews in the day of Jesus Christ gathered the false grapes and figs from the Pharisees and all the other false rabbinical orders. So today in this hour Christians gather the grapes and figs of lies deceit and deception from the Pharisees and false rabbinical orders of our day.) Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. (The fruit of the knowledge of good and evil – the light of darkness)A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, (Those that walk in the light as He is in the light can not speak or abide the words or works of darkness) neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.(Neither can those that walk in darkness speak or abide the words or works of the light as it exposes and manifests their deeds) Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. (They are cast into the fires of hell in eternal judgment.) Wherefore (fear ye, for as) by their fruits ye shall know them. (And by partaking of the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil of these angels of light shall you also be known and judged likewise.)

So by the words of Christ spoken above we do judge Christian marriage with is current set of Talmudic doctrines and traditions of men to be an evil tree bearing evil fruit.

So what then is that which is evil and perverse in marriage? What has brought forth this evil fruit of divorce and destruction of the Christian Household?

The issue this hour for Christian women is whether they can rise against the tide of wholesale rebellion of the majority of bible believing and Spirit-filled women as these strive to bypass their husbands and make themselves the high priestesses of their households, and seek to make themselves answerable only to the likeminded cabal of froward women that are steeped in rebellion against their husbands, and any biblical references that would declare their sin.

Deuteronomy 32:20 And he said, I will hide my face from them, I will see what their end shall be: for they are a very froward generation, children in whom is no faith. (In whom there is no faithfulness)

Those who go to church and meetings against their husbands will or without their husbands rejoice and laud their deeds in church and are lauded and applauded for their rebellion so that evil is called good, and good is declared as evil.

Proverbs 2:14-15 Who rejoice to do evil, and delight in the frowardness of the wicked; Whose ways are crooked, and they froward in their paths:
We need to remind our readers what shall you do in the time of trouble? What shall you do when the EU is over thrown and your church and fellowship is destroyed? How will you ever be able to pray and meet God without your synagogues? And how will you ever be able to understand the bible without your rabbis and their doctrines and teachings that null the word and commandments of God?

Being stripped of the false church made with hands you will have to seek God for yourself within your own household, you will have to build your own family altar or perish then and there. And in that day and hour you will discover for yourself how the few of the Ek-Klesia have lived since the times of the apostles in small bands scattered among the land and hidden in dress, hidden in unmarked houses, hidden with no criers in the streets declaring you shall meet in secret here and there. And you shall know everyone by the Spirit and thus recognize other members that hid in Christ Jesus. Why should we have to wait to bring our own household under divine order? Should we not earnestly desire to walk in these things here and now?

Moving on; we will categorically state here that a husband’s disobedience, or disregard to the word of God, and more specifically a husbands disobedience or disregard to the words and commandments of Jesus Christ does not excuse a wife from speaking evil of her husband in church and to other believers,  in a wife from disobeying her husbands carnal and ungodly wishes and wants (Short of her committing criminal acts, committing fornication, adultery, or blasphemy against God and the Holy Spirit) or in a wife committing wholesale rebellion against her husband in the name of Jesus and the word of God, while using ever means possible from her cooking household care, and the marital bed to coerce and force her husband to submit unto her and convert to be the kind of husband and Christian she wants him to be.

Such behavior not the righteous works as many would proclaim but rather it is a foul stench in the sight of God that He loathes.  This kind of loathsome behavior is not just all to common among bible believing and Spirit-filled believers, but in most churches this “spiritual rebellion” is strongly encouraged by their pastors and teachers.

Many suppose the submission of wives to their husbands to be some great grey area in which “Spiritual” women are somehow exempted from. and as being a “Spiritual” wife they can instead freely do anything they please want or desire in the name of the Lord.  These woman brazenly extol and highlight that they are not under their spiritual or unspiritual, saved or unsaved husband’s authority in any way shape or form, but rather Jesus Christ’s. And that they will only obey what they see as consistent with their cherry picked view of scripture. And we might add that these same women openly proclaim in churches all across the land that it is only by their good graces that their husband gets any attention at all concerning any tidbit of their  will or wants as regard to the household or themselves.

Ephesians 5:23-24 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 (Upo-Tas-Setai  Upo [Nominative] Is: Agreeing to, or Willingly putting oneself under another, Tasso To rearrange or reorder oneself to, To devote oneself to, To make someone your pursuit, To dispose oneself to another [This is a dispossessing in order to gain {Which is a core teaching of Christ in the gospels}] Setai -Tithemi  To produce, To deposit [So the bride must willingly subordinate and reorder herself giving up her wills, wants, and desires  so that she might no be impeded in any way or being fully fruitful) unto Christ, so let the wives be (willingly subordinate and reorder herself giving up her wills, wants, and desires  so that she might no be impeded in any way or being fully fruitful) to their own husbands in every thing. (In all things, and all areas)

In a previous intensive study on Ephesians 5 we found that the Greek compound word Upo-Tasso-Tithemi was used exclusively of the church submitting to Christ and the wife submitting to her husband and the meaning of this tri-compound word is that of a wife or bride willing subordinating herself or willingly placing herself under her husband to see to it that all his wishes wants and desires abound in all fruitfulness – in other words Upo-Tasso-Tithemi in a single word is the embodiment virtuous woman of proverbs. 

The same sentiments of this virtuous woman willing putting herself under her husbands influence and authority is voiced by Jesus Christ

Matthew 11:28-29 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

However in feminism doctrine this can never be allowed to happen, no feminized woman can ever cede her control, her agenda, her wishes. or wants – for to do so and come into her husband’s image and likeness would be spiritual, and moral death.   So in feminized households the marriage begins generally with a series of pacts and agreements the center of which is the false notion of the husband and wife being co-equals (Which appeals to our deluded ideals of fairness, balance, as being Christ-like [Note here that Christ was never co-equals with Peter James and John, and when ever in the Gospels they exceeded their place or authority Christ rebuked, corrected, or publicly excoriated them, and actually many disciples departed from Christ. – So that only in time did Peter James and John come into His image and likeness and become truly His apostles) So in these deluded households, the fruit of this self imposed double-mindedness is the wife striving against the husband for control, and in the continuing struggle of wills the wife then goes beyond arguing and striving, and then begins meting out punishment (In the bedroom, in nit picking, brow beating, and belittling her husband) with their feminized pastors and preachers in full approval encouraging such behavior, of her unspiritual husband’s lack of “Upo-Tasso-Menoing” her, so that if the feminized marriage is successful it is because the husband has conformed into the image and likeness of his wife rather than visa versa.  However in most cases the feminized Christian wife through her systematic punishments drives out her husband --  and then cries in church how he was mean and abandoned her.  

The reason for all the divorce, adultery and abortion in the church today is that it has adopted into its preaching and teaching the utterly corrupt ideals of westernized culture.

2 Corinthians 6:14-15  -- For what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial (satan)? Or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

And in so doing the church is aborting itself so that in a few scant generations with a little more sleep and a little more folding of the hands, if this were allowed to continue the American church would be well on its way to extinction as it is already in Europe.  Which will shortly be broken trampled in pieces and ground into dust by the forth beast of Daniel – And Americans, American Christians  now are only a generation or two away having that same fate as European Christians.

A note here to those who do examine the Greek we post to see if these things be so. The Greek Definitions given here are taken from Liddel and Scotts English-Greek Lexicon (1871 edition) which gives a largely unfiltered look at classical Greek word usage. (This same Greek is used in the Greek Septuagint and the New Testament.) 

1 Peter 3:1-2 Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection (Upo-Tasso-Meno . Upo [Nominative tense] Is Agreeing to, or Willingly putting oneself under another, Tasso To rearrange or reorder oneself to, To devote oneself to, To make someone your pursuit, To dispose oneself to another [This is a dispossessing in order to gain gain {Which is a core teaching of Christ in the gospels}] Menoi-Meno While the Analytical Greek Lexicon defines Meno as: “To Abide" or "To Dwell" or “To Lodge”  The word Meno is much more than “An Abiding”  The word Meno includes the meaning that one also comes under the  rule, or influence, of whom one he or she abides or dwells with.[What Paul in the above passage and Peter here is very hard for those raised in western feminist societies to comprehend. – When a woman marries she is to disposes herself of her kindred and fathers house as well as   her own agenda, her wishes and wants, and she is to exchange those in order to possess her husbands dreams wishes and wants – {This is the two becoming of one heart and one soul} So that when others see is a reflection of her husband) to your own husbands; that, if any obey (Ape-Ithousin Apo- To move away from.

Likewise for a wife to come under another man’s rulership over one’s husband, and for a wife to disciple herself to that man or group or fellowship she is being plowed or unchaste or unfaithful. – Nowhere does Jesus Christ teach disobedience and rebellion as being part of following Him.] Peter here is citing  Samson declaring other men had plowed with his wife.)  conversation (Ana-Strohen) coupled with fear.

1 Peter 3:1-2 (A better rendering) Likewise wives willing place yourselves under, your husbands, be devoted to and make your husband your pursuit, and abide or dwell under the rule, and influence of your own husbands. And if your husband’s impulses, his plans, and purposes are in an opposition to the teachings of word of God, know that such men can be drawn to Christ by your making yourself to be their servant, and using all your skills to your husband’s gain and profitableness, along with you joyously and joyfully dancing about your husband as you crown him as your lord and master.  And he shall behold and prove your newfound devotion in Christ by you’re observing in Christian chastity his rulership his influence as the true head of the household, and observing your new found fidelity as you guard yourself against your former infidelities of emotional affairs with other believers and nonbelievers. And he will behold in wonder your newfound joyousness and joyfulness in dancing about your husband as you crown him as your lord and master, along with your new found fear and reverence of him. (Peter here is declaring that in these things you are fulfilling your duties as a Spiritual Christian. So that as you so do these things as your service and worship of Christ, your husband will so desire to know this Christ and His words that have so transformed his wife into the virtuous woman of Ruth, and the virtuous woman of Proverbs.)

Except a wife become as a small child; in her love, in her devotion, in her submission, and in her cleaving unto her husband and in her looking to him for all of her physical, and emotional needs, she shall in no wise enter into the kingdom of heaven. (We can indeed see those child-like qualities extolled here in 1 Peter 3:1-2)

1 Peter 3:3-6 Whose (Such a wife’s) adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel; (The taste not, touch not vanity of those so adorned) But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, (Beauty fades,  even with all manner of adornment, one cannot truly hide their age and the corruption of their body.) even (With)  the (Incorruptible) ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price. For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, (Sarah, Rebekah, Ruth) being in subjection unto their own husbands: 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.  

Peter above in 1 Peter 3:1-2  is declaring that believing wives make themselves their husbands servants to win over their unsaved husbands or unspiritual husbands, this is especially pronounced in the story of Rebekah. 
Ephesians 6:5-8 Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ; Not with eye service, as men pleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart; With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men: Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man (Or woman) doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free. (Paul uses the same terms concerning being married in I Corinthians 7)

These passages are given a tutors and governors to help us and guide us if we will allow these to speak to us and change us into the image and likeness of Christ.

We can not say we love Him and are His disciples if obey not His commandments. All the meetings we go to and all the singing and worship we do and all the spiritual prayers we pray can not and will not cover our disobedience and unfaithfulness.

So also is it in marriage between a husband and wife we can not say that we love our husband and are his wife if we not “Meno” our husband, that is to abide or dwell under his authority and influence, and this is manifested in our obeying our husbands commandments – if we “Meno” not our husbands but rather despise his words and belittle him so as the walk in the ways of feminism – all the singing and worship, all the spiritual prayers, all the bible reading and all the meetings we attend will not cover us for our disobedience and unfaithfulness to our husbands. For to “Meno” our husband is to manifest Thy will be done on earth (In my husbands household) as it is in heaven (As it is in God’s and Jesus Christ’s household)

We are to mirror on earth that which is in heaven – and the doctrines and traditions of feminism are a stench and abomination unto God. The Lord by His Spirit would declare for those who have ears to hear that feminism is the “I Will’s” of satan

Here now is the final word from God Himself on feminism
Isaiah 14:12-14 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, (Oh feminized women) son of the morning! (Daughters of rebellion) how art thou cut down to the ground, (From your lofty calling) which didst weaken the nations! (By tearing apart your own households)  For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, (I will usurp my husbands place in the household and before God)  I will exalt my throne (My rulership and authority) above (over) the stars of God: (My husband) I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, (Executing my judgements and making a name for myself to my greater household) in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. ( I will be the husband spiritually and physically of my household.)

Isaiah 14:15-20 Yet (Because of thy pride and disobedience) thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit. (Breaking the first commandment of God unto woman is a sin unto death – it is a negation of God’s plan of redemption) They that see thee shall narrowly (To look down upon thee) look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man (This feminist wife she) that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms; (Of westernized society) That made the world as a wilderness, (That her feminist doctrines and traditions have brought the whole of westernized society and the church to utter ruin to be overrun by the Muslims, because of childless marriages, marriage with only one or two children, separation, divorce she has aborting her own seed her church and her nation with all that that follow in the pride and disobedience to God of feminism) and destroyed the cities (So that their cities and nations are overrun with the ungodly, and ultimately overthrown by the muslims) thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners? (That this feminized wife did not strengthen the hands of the weak offer healing and set the captives free [As in covering her husband’s own areas of weakness and nakedness] but instead sought to rule over her husband and other men exerting authority as the gentiles to the beating and abusing those that are weak and infirm by use of her sharp tongue and state and federal laws.) All the kings of the nations, (Those that are great in humility and obediance) even all of them, lie in glory, every one in his own house. (But not you oh feminized  woman) But thou art (Shalt be) cast out of thy grave like an abominable branch, (By God as you shall be resurrected unto eternal shame and eternal death along with the devil and his angels as Christ declared many times.) and as the (Unclean) raiment of those that are slain, thrust through with a sword, that go down to the stones of the pit; (This is the sewage pit and dump outside of Jeusalem) as a carcase (To be) trodden under feet. (Of those that wander and service the dump and sewage pit)  Thou shalt not be joined with them in burial, because thou hast destroyed thy land, (Thy household, and thy land ) and slain thy people (And thy children that you have corrupted as well and have learned your evil and perverse ways shall be declared also to be) the seed of evildoers (Thou O feminist) shall never be renowned.
