WOMEN…OF GOD!

Much TO DO about women in our society in recent months. You may have heard.

Women of God II          DOES IT WARRANT ALL THE ATTENTION?

The Christmas season was just recent, and I read with interest the significant genealogy of Jesus, the Son of God. The ancestors of Jesus listed in Matthew 1:1-17 include FIVE women:

  1. Tamar (Matt. 1:3)   woman of incest                           Women of God
  2. Rahab (Matt. 1:5)    prostitute
  3. Ruth  (Matt. 1:5)     foreigner-outsider
  4. Bathsheba-wife of Uriah (Matt. 1:6) woman of adultery
  5. Mary (Matt. 1:16)   virgin

WOMEN WERE VERY SIGNIFICANT IN THE LINEAGE OF JESUS AND SIGNIFICANT TO THE WORK OF GOD IN LIFE.

God sees women as equal to men in many ways, and yet God also exposes us to the significant differences and strengths that women have which men do not have.

So God created man in His own image…in the image of God…male and female… Genesis 1:27  ears...talking

The Lord God said, It is not good that man should be alone… Genesis 2:18

Ish part of Ishah           Man part of Woman

So alongside of man (Ish-Heb.) God created woman (Ishah-Heb.) to be a helper fit for him, Genesis 2:20 because God saw in the creation that there was no suitable help mate.

        (Adam) said, “This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman (ishah),   Because she was taken out of Man (ish).” For this reason a man (ish) shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife (ishah); and they shall become one flesh. Genesis 2:23-24

                             THAT IS THE WAY OF GOD TO GIVE SIGNIFICANCE!
