Now is this tight but right ,( In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works. Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.)

When did God ordain so many women too speak as we see today? Was this mandate changed somewhere in the Word (For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.) (For I am the LORD, I change not).

Now this, i really need some spricture too help with.

Would you be kind enough to define the word "spricture," then I may be able to get a clear understanding of what it is you are looking for in this statement.

Peace in Jesus
t is clear from the scriptures that men of God would be mocked for the witness of the Word of God. In the last days men will be killed for the witness of the Word of God. I am sure you understand this post Sister Harris.

2Timothy 4:3-5 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.

Isaiah 30:9-11 That this is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of the LORD: Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits: Get you out of the way, turn aside out of the path, cause the Holy One of Israel to cease from before us.

Matthew 24:9-10 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
SPRICTURE? I believe there's no such animal; At least not to my knowledge. Could it be a type of bird? Hmmm...
First i like to say my bad for misspelling the word scriptures please excuse me, Bro. Israel has put a summation to this in the since we are in a time when many will fall away and wont endure sound doctrine for sure. I just trying too understand what in the Word backs up this out pouring of female Pastorship and leadership in the "church".

giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression

Has God change his place for when in leadership ? Please sisters reason this with out strong rebuke I do love you in JESUS name.
No God has not changed HIS word on leadership, it is the divine order that men be the head, the scripture that you have presented is one that has many confused because of the lack of study.

First and foremost what does the word usurp mean, to seize, there are many women who are put into leadership positions by GOD, because of the lack of men to lead. They have not seized anything from them, they are not there.

Secondly, as our sister Deborah in Judges was called on by Barak, to assist him, things can be done decent and in order. Other scriptures to be studied are:

Does the passage you posted forbid all teaching? NO! The emphasis is: "over the man"

1. Women Are To Teach Women

Titus 2:3-5

The older women likewise, that they be reverent in behavior, not slanderers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things— that they admonish the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, homemakers, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be blasphemed.

2. Women May Teach Men In The Assembly

Colossians 3:16

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

3. Priscilla Was Involved In Teaching Apollos

Acts 18:25-26

This man had been instructed in the way of the Lord; and being fervent in spirit, he spoke and taught accurately the things of the Lord, though he knew only the baptism of John. So he began to speak boldly in the synagogue. When Aquila and Priscilla heard him, they took him aside and explained to him the way of God more accurately.
There are many women who are put into leadership positions by GOD, because of the lack of men to lead. Where can i find this in the blessd Word of GOD.( Aquila and Priscilla)" And because he was of the same craft, he abode with them, and wrought: for by their occupation they were tentmakers." At he time that they witnesed to Apollos they have been new converts of Paul and it was until hapter 19 does Paul start to ask them have they received the Holy Ghost since they have believed(believers of John to include Apollos)Acts18:25 Aquila did Pastor a church in Corth, with his dear wife by his side.
And Barak said unto her, If thou wilt go with me, then I will go: but if thou wilt not go with me, then I will not go. And she said, I will surely go with thee: notwithstanding the journey that thou takest shall not be for thine honour; for the LORD shall sell Sisera into the hand of a woman. And Deborah arose, and went with Barak to Kedesh.

Deborah this great Judge of Israel know herself that there was no Honor give with a woman leading in the work ordained for this man Barak.

I do agree older women should teach the younger sisters.

If you read Colossians Chap 4 you will see Paul only address the Men in Leadership ,

So still in the Word were has God made this change to direct so many sisters in to Pastorship, and even Titled Bishop so contrary too the Word.
Not contrary to the Word, for the Word states that they should not USURP (seize)the authority of the man (this YOU did not address?) If it is the man that ordains these women into Pastoral or Bishop offices, then they are in right standing with God.

Now you can as others continue to be stiffnecked about the issue and play semantics with the Word, however Acts 2:17 will continue to slap you UPside the head.... And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh:

as well as Galatians 3:28 ...There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.

Jesus broke down all barriers here we are all one in Christ Jesus!

btw, read again Deborah's words, she was admonishing him that the honor would go to her, a woman, and not him.

Continue to study
1 Timothy 2:11-14 . .In Paul's reference to women listening and learning in silence and submissively, he is speaking about an attitude of silence and composure - not total silence. Additionally, the women in the Ephesian church were apparently abusing their newly acquired Christian freedom. Because these women were new converts, they did not yet have the necessary experience, knowledge or Christian maturity to teach those who already have extensive scriptural education.
Amen Chaplain! I again say that if Brother Paul was here today, he would definitely be proud of how the brothers have taught the sisters, to minister the gospel.
Usurp (831) Strongs New testement words ,to act of oneself,dominate ,
I have a webster but you can't get a Greek understanding from it.
Again Deborah is saying there was know honor because a woman had lead Israel into battle not that she word recieve any such thing.
I still havent seen any scripture to support women in leadership in church. Or acting of oneself no headship or dominating men under there pastorship.

Yes we are one in Christ i believe that with all my heart but this body has a place for every member and some just need to find theirs
1Timothy 2:7-15 Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not;) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity. I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting. In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works. Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression. Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobri

Genesis 3:1-6 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

Genesis 3:13-16 And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat. And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life: And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. 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.

1Corinthians 11:3-10 But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God. Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonoureth his head. But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven. For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered. For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man. For the man is not of the woman: but the woman of the man. Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man. For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels.

Proverbs 12:4 A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed is as rottenness in his bones.

Proverbs 31:10-31 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life. She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands. She is like the merchants' ships; she bringeth her food from afar. She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens. She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms. She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night. She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff. She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy. She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet. She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple. Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land. She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant. Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come. She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness. 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. Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all. Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.

Revelation 2:19-23 I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first. Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols. And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not. Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.

Proverbs 7:4-27 Say unto wisdom, Thou art my sister; and call understanding thy kinswoman: That they may keep thee from the strange woman, from the stranger which flattereth with her words. For at the window of my house I looked through my casement,And beheld among the simple ones, I discerned among the youths, a young man void of understanding, Passing through the street near her corner; and he went the way to her house, In the twilight, in the evening, in the black and dark night:And, behold, there met him a woman with the attire of an harlot, and subtil of heart. (She is loud and stubborn; her feet abide not in her house:Now is she without, now in the streets, and lieth in wait at every corner.) So she caught him, and kissed him, and with an impudent face said unto him, I have peace offerings with me; this day have I payed my vows. Therefore came I forth to meet thee, diligently to seek thy face, and I have found thee. I have decked my bed with coverings of tapestry, with carved works, with fine linen of Egypt. I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon. Come, let us take our fill of love until the morning: let us solace ourselves with loves. For the goodman is not at home, he is gone a long journey: He hath taken a bag of money with him, and will come home at the day appointed. With her much fair speech she caused him to yield, with the flattering of her lips she forced him.He goeth after her straightway, as an ox goeth to the slaughter, or as a fool to the correction of the stocks; Till a dart strike through his liver; as a bird hasteth to the snare, and knoweth not that it is for his life. Hearken unto me now therefore, O ye children, and attend to the words of my mouth. Let not thine heart decline to her ways, go not astray in her paths. For she hath cast down many wounded: yea, many strong men have been slain by her. Her house is the way to hell, going down to the chambers of death.
Elder Spiegel:

I do believe women are anointed by God to preach and teach, but I honestly cannot say the same for the office of Pastor and Bishop. For me, the jury is still out on this one.
