This revelation is NOT just for the ladies. Men please read this because we outline what you need to do as well.
Some of the church has fallen into a well laid trap. Our focus should be on our Husband. A bride loves her Husband. She is not to focused on her father in law. She does not desire her father in law. She does not fawn and adulate her father in law.
BUT. As she comes to know and love her Husband Jesus Christ, through Him she is able to be seated at the right hand of God the Father, right in His very Presence. She becomes adopted by the Father.
Her name is changed by her Husband. Her Husband’s God is her God. Her Husband’s people become her people.
Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God – Ruth 1:16
It’s an incredible priviledge for God to receive a person who joins themselves to Him willingly. At the end every knee will bow, but for right now it’s a willing acceptance. All of Heaven rejoices! We have a certain level of “free will” and when we take the time to see the good in Him, and we when we choose join ourselves to Him, and when we choose to identify find ourselves IN Him – as a part of Him – we gain a new identity through Him.
Did you know that the bible calls on women to do the same to their husbands?
Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything. – Eph 5:22-24
But let me please urgently add this. God is a good God. Jesus Christ proved His love for us by dying for us. And we see that and we respond to Him.
In that same way, women should submit to a man who has made Jesus Christ His own head in this same way. It would be risky to submit yourself to someone who does not believe in this way. It would be a disaster to submit to an abusive man in this way.
Ladies, before you join yourself to a man in this way, make sure he is submitted to Jesus Christ is this way too.
Men, submit yourself to Jesus Christ in this way… and He will bring you a helper who is also looking to submit to you in that same way.
Ladies, have you tried to submit to the wrong kind of man – how did it go? Men, are you submitted to Jesus Christ in this way? Leave your comment below.
