Apostle E. L. Gales; PhD., D.Div.
Chief Apostle and Presiding Bishop of the 'Pentecostal Holiness Church of Christ ®'
Bishop & Senior Pastor of 'The Lord's Tabernacle PHCOC'
The Lord just placed in upon my heart to address one the most controversial topics in the church. In fact, in my initial message as a preacher it was the very 1st thing I began preaching about, and also the very first thing that I addressed in the first message that I preached on television as the church I Pastor went on the air. I have preached this in many churches, and now I will dissect it here.
The topic? Women preachers and women in ministry. Much has been said about this in churches, on TV, online, on YouTube, in the newspapers, books, magazines,etc… It is time that the TRUTH is presented!
The first thing I want to do is ask a question to every woman who has said that she was called to ministry, and to those men who also believe in women preachers. Can you show me ONE, just ONE Scripture in the Word of God where a woman PREACHED? I’ll answer that for you. NO! Get your Bibles and dictionaries. Like my oldest nephew says, “I’m about to take y’all to flight school!”
One of the things I am most known for saying in the pulpits is, “If the Bible don’t back you up, you need to shut up!” Let the Book talk today. And let’s expose the lies and the liars!
Ø 2TIMOTHY 3:16-17 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That theman of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
ALL scripture– not some, not most, not certain ones, not only the NT, not just what you like– ALL scripture is given by inspiration of GOD! Like it or not, ALL of it comes from GOD (not the opinions of Paul,Moses, Jeremiah, Mark, John, Joshua, Matthew, etc..). That the MAN of God (not WOMAN) may be perfect.
So as soon as you begin to deny that ANY scripture was not from God, or claim that person ‘X’wrote this or that, you make yourself a liar and deceive yourself! And we see mention here of the MAN of God,and no mention of a WOMAN.
Ø MALACHI 3:6 For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.
Ø HEBREWS 13:8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.
It’s funny how people stopped quoting these scriptures here. God said that He DOES NOT CHANGE, and we see that Jesus is THE SAME…. EVERYDAY. So the question is if we see NO women preachers in the Old Testament, and do not see where Jesus called or chose any women to PREACH, then if either God or Jesus were to do so now then they would be liars. Anyone who believes a woman is called to preach is the liar!
Ø JUDGES 5:1-3 Then sang Deborah and Barak the son of Abinoam on that day, saying, Praise ye the LORD for the avenging of Israel,when the people willingly offered themselves. Hear, O ye kings; give ear, O ye princes; I, even I, will sing unto the LORD; I will sing praise to the LORD God of Israel.
Ø JUDGES 5:12 Awake, awake, Deborah:awake, awake, utter a song: arise, Barak, and lead thy captivity captive, thou son of Abinoam.
Ø JUDGES 4:4 And Deborah, a prophetess, the wife of Lapidoth, she judged Israel at that time.
Ø JUDGES 5:7 The inhabitants of the villages ceased, they ceased in Israel, until that I Deborah arose, that I arose a mother in Israel.
Those liars who call themselves women preachers, and those who believe their lies, love to point to Deborah. Notice how the Bible says that Deborah SANG, not PREACHED! Notice how Deborah told the kings and princes to give her their ears and she will SING, and NOT that she would PREACH! Notice how God tells Deborah to awake, awake, and UTTER A SONG – NOT utter the Word of God – but tells BARAK to lead the people, NOT Deborah! Notice Deborah was called a prophetess – not a preacher, minister, elder, pastor, priest, bishop, evangelist, teacher, and especially not an Apostle! AND, notice how Deborah says that she arose a MOTHER – again, not a preacher or pastor or priest or bishop or Apostle or anything else!
The following are definitions from the Webster dictionary:
Main Entry: preach
1: to deliver a sermon
2: to urge acceptance or abandonment of an idea or course of action; specifically : to exhort in an officious or tiresome manner
Main Entry: proph·et
1: one who utters divinely inspired revelations
3: one who foretells future events : predictor
Main Entry: proph·et·ess
1: a woman who is a prophet
Main Entry: 2judge
1: one who judges: as a : a public official authorized to decide questions brought before a court
Look at these definitions. It is CLEAR that a preacher, a prophet, and prophetess are totally different calling/gifts, and a judge is again totally different!
Ø 1CORINTHIANS 6:2 Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?
So, are you really going to pass off the lie that Deborah judging made her a PREACHER? The scripture says that THE SAINTS shall JUDGE! Does this make EVERY SAVED PERSON a PREACHER? NO! No scripture says we are ALL preachers!
Ø EXODUS 15:20 And Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a timbrel in her hand; and all the women went out after her with timbrels and with dances.
NO, Miriam WAS NOT a preacher! The Word said, like Deborah sang and uttered a song, that she took the WOMEN (she didn’t lead the men or a man) and danced and played music!
Ø 2CHRONICLES 34:22 And Hilkiah, and they that the king had appointed, went to Huldah the prophetess, the wife of Shallum the son of Tikvath, the son of Hasrah, keeper of the wardrobe; (now she dwelt in Jerusalem in the college:) and they spake to her to that effect.
NO, Huldah so DID NOT preach! She was a PROPHETESS, and she DID prophecy of what was going to happen to the people who disobeyed God – she told them of the bad things to come upon them. But she DID NOT use scripture, nor teach anybody, nor lead anybody, nor preach! Find the word PREACH in these scriptures about her! Nope, it’s not there! What was she? She was KEEPER OF THE WARDROBE! NOT keeper of the Word! NOT keeper of a church! NOT a preacher NOR a pastor!
Ø NEHEMIAH 6:14 My God, think thou upon Tobiah and Sanballat according to these their works, and on the prophetess Noadiah, and the rest of the prophets, that would have put me in fear.
Again, NOWHERE do the scripture say that Noadiah PREACHED!
Remember, again, the above definitions of PREACHING and of a PROPHET:
Ø JOEL 2:28 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:
Ø ACTS 2:17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out ofmy Spirit upon all flesh:and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:
Ø JOHN 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
Ø 1CORINTHIANS 2:10-14 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
Ø MARK 16:17-18 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
Your sons and daughters will PROPHESY! NOWHERE does it say your sons and daughters will PREACH! Nowhere! Again, the preacher and the prophet are two different callings. If the WORD OF GOD doesn’t say your daughters will PREACH, then WHY are YOU saying (women) that He called you? Is God the liar, or are YOU the liar? Nothing mentioned about what having the Holy Ghost will empower you to even remotely hints at empowering women to preach!
The last three scriptures make one other thing clear. He said He would pour out His Spirit, but what is His Spirit? THE HOLY GHOST! Does having the Holy Ghost make you a preacher? Do the scriptures anywhere say that it does? NO!
Ø ACTS 2:1-4 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
Ø ACTS 2:14-16 But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said unto them, Ye men of Judaea, and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words: For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day. But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;
Ø ACTS 2:21 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.
On the day of Pentecost the 120 (men and women) were filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to SPEAK IN OTHER TONGUES! NOT PREACH! The ONLY person who got up and began to speak was PETER! No women! And he told the people whosever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be SAVED – NOT that they would PREACH!
Ø 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.
The liars who call themselves women preachers love to quote this scripture, while failing to look right above it to see what God is talking about here:
Ø GALATIANS 3:26-27 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
Ø ROMANS 10:11-13 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
Ø 2CORINTHIANS 6:17-18 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord,and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
Ø ROMANS 2:11 For there is no respect of persons with God.
It is so clear even a blind man can “see” that Galatians 3:28 is talking about no respect of persons when it comes to SALVATION, as the next three scriptures I posted back-up.
No such thing as male or female? A lie from the pits of hell! God has no respect of persons as far as men AND women being able to be saved. But you can’t see with your own eyes that all people, YES, are either MALE or FEMALE?! If this is true, then men let’s see you go get pregnant and give birth, and women let’s see you go get someone pregnant! Sounds stupid,right? So does calling a woman a preacher!
Ø GENESIS 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him;male and female created he them.
Ø 2CORINTHIANS 6:18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
Sounds like God HAS made MALE AND FEMALE!
Ø ACTS 21:9 And the same man had four daughters, virgins, which did prophesy.
Again, the liars like this one. But, again, we see four DAUGHTERS (i.e. FEMALES) and they did PROHESY, but the Word of God DOES NOT say they PREACHED!
Ø REVELATION 22:18-19 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
This is EXACTLY what people do when you want to say that a woman PREACHED when the Bible says that she PROPHECIED! You’re rebelling against God and His Word by taking away words and adding words.
Ø 1SAMUEL 15:23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.
A woman calling herself a preacher is the same as a witch, and she has rejected the Word of the LORD!
Now, back to the scriptures in Malachi 3:6 where the LORD says He doesn’t change, and Hebrews 13:8 that say Jesus Christ is the same everyday.
Ø MARK 3:13-19 And he goeth up into a mountain, and calleth unto him whom he would: and they came unto him. And he ordained twelve, that they should be with him, and that he might send them forth to preach, And to have power to heal sicknesses, and to cast out devils: And Simon he surnamed Peter; And James the son of Zebedee, and John the brother of James; and he surnamed them Boanerges, which is, The sons of thunder: And Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Canaanite, And Judas Iscariot, which also betrayed him: and they went into an house.
Now, if God had intended why didn’t He have Jesus call any? Why are these twelve named ALL MEN, and it was ONLY MEN whom He ordained to PREACH? He did what He has the right to do, and that is chose WHOMEVER HE WANTS, and He chose NOT to choose a woman to preach! Now, if we believe Hebrews 13:8 that Jesus is the SAME today, yesterday, and forever, then we MUST believe that if He didn’t call a woman THEN, that He isn’t calling any NOW either! To not believe that He doesn’t change would again call Him a liar.
Ø 1TIMOTHY 2:3-7 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. Forthere is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time. 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.
Ø 1TIMOTHY 2:11-14 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.
Again, we believe that ALL scripture is given by inspiration of God (2Timothy 3:16); additionally, Paul lets us again know that what he is about to say is good and acceptable in the sight of Almighty God, the one and only true God who ordained him (Paul, a man) a PREACHER and an APOSTLE, and that he (Paul, a man) speaks the TRUTH in Christ! So, in other words,it is ultimately GOD who is telling us I SUFFER NOT A WOMAN TO TEACH, NOR TO USURP AUTHORITY OVER THE MAN! Women are to LEARN, NOT to do the teaching!
Women, not only does God prohibit you from preaching, but also from being a Pastor! If you can’t preach, then you certainly can’t be a Pastor because preaching a part of the PASTOR’S job! And being a PASTOR gives you Biblical authority over the church and puts you in leadership (something Jeremiah touches so much upon in Jeremiah 1:10, 10:21, and 23:1-4; also see Ezekiel 2:1-9, 3:17-21, and 33:7-9; see Isaiah 58:1; lastly, see 2Timothy 4:2-4 – all of these addressing Pastors!) God DOES NOT allow a WOMAN to be the head!
Ø 1CORINTHIANS 11:3 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.
A woman can no more be the head of a man than a man can be the head of Christ, or Christ being God’s head!
Why does he mention that Eve was deceived, and not Adam? It has to do with the fact that the WOMAN IS NOT QUALIFIED TO LEAD!
Ø ISAIAH 3:12 As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths.
Just as Adam followed his wife, and Solomon followed his 700 wives, and Samson followed Delilah, every man who follows a woman is lead to err and is destroyed. Women lead, but they do it against the perfect will of God!
Ø MATTHEW 7:28-29 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine: For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.
Teaching, preaching, and pastoring gives the one doing it AUTHORITY. Something God forbids a woman from EVER having over a man.
Ø EPHESIANS 5:22-24 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.
Ø 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.
Ø HEBREWS 13:17 Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.
No humanly (nor Spiritually) way possible that a woman can be a preacher nor a pastor without usurping authority over not only the men in the congregation but also her own husband! And if she does,she is TOTALLY out of God’s order and His will!
Ø 1CORINTHIANS 14:40 Let all things be done decently and in order.
A woman preaching, teaching, or being a pastor is not decent, nor is it in order! She is OUT of order!
Ø 1CORINTHIANS 14:34-35 Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it isnot permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law. And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.
No, a woman isn’t forbidden to say amen (Deuteronomy 27:15-26 all say for ALL the people to say amen), nor is she forbidden from making a joyful noise unto the Lord ALL ye lands (Psalms 100), nor from letting EVERYTHING that hath breath praise the Lord (Psalms 150). But when it comes to speaking before the church, teaching the men, preaching, or being the pastor she IS forbidden and commanded to keep silent! To do otherwise would again put her in authority over the man, and out of order with God.
Ø JEREMIAH 23:28 The prophet that hath a dream, let him tell a dream; and he that hath my word, let him speak my word faithfully. What is the chaff to the wheat? saith the LORD.
Ø JEREMIAH 1:9 Then the LORD put forth his hand, and touched my mouth. And the LORD said unto me, Behold, I have put my words in thy mouth.
A prophet or prophetess tells a dream, speaks from a vision (NOT from scripture), and tells of things to come in the future. A PREACHER has the Word of God in HIM (not her) and preaches from scripture. A MAN can have multiple gifts and/or callings and be any combination of Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor, teacher, Bishop, preacher, etc…, but they are all DIFFERENT callings (1Corinthians 12:4-11).
The Word says let HE (not she) that hath my word, let HIM (not her) speak my word faithfully (a woman is forbidden to speak)! He, him, indicate MALE and not a FEMALE; a MAN, and not a WOMAN!
Ø EZEKIEL 33:7 So thou, O son of man, I have set thee a watchman unto the house of Israel; therefore thou shalt hear the word at my mouth, and warn them from me.
No woman preacher here either! The person God sent to preach He called SON – NOT DAUGHTER, nor person – and set HIM (not her) as a WATCHMAN (not watchwoman or watchperson)!
Ø 2TIMOTHY 4:2-5 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. 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.
Paul was speaking to Timothy (a MAN) and told HIM to PREACH (something NEVER told to a woman in ANY scripture); to reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. A woman IS NOT Biblically qualified to do these things, as we have already seen in previous scriptures. And NEVER in scripture was ANY woman told to do these things!
And, yes, sadly so the churches have failed to endure SOUND doctrine, but have after their own lusts (more on that in a moment) heaped to their own teacher and turned their ears from the truth. It was a MAN who was told to do the work of an evangelist (a traveling preacher; not some woman sitting on the same pew every week), not a woman!
Ø 1JOHN 2:15-17 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
It was Eve in the garden (Genesis 3:1-6) who had the lust of her eye, the lust of her flesh,and the pride of life (Proverbs 6:16-17 tell us God HATES pride) that caused her to disobey God, undermine the authority of her husband, and lead the man to destruction. It is the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eye, and the pride of life that makes a woman lie and say God called her to preach!
Remember Genesis 1:27 and 2Corinthians 6:18 telling us that humans DO exist as either MALE OR FEMALE?
Ø 1TIMOTHY 3:1-5 This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, hedesireth a good work. A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach; Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous; One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity; (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)
Only someone who is spiritually retarded and a crackpot can twist THIS up! If a MAN (not a woman or a person) desire the office of bishop, HE (not she or they) desire a good work! Bishop is HUSBAND OF ONE WIFE (not wife of one husband), ruleth well HIS house (not her house or their house), having HIS children (not her children or their children) in subjection! For if a MAN (not woman, or person) doesn’t know how to rule HIS own house (not her or their house) how shall HE (not she or they) take care of the church of God? MAN, HE, HUSBAND, HIS……! NO reference to a Bishop being a female –PERIOD!
Ø REVELATION 2:20-23 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 thereins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.
Notice Jezebel called HERSELF – God didn’t call her anything! Notice the CHURCH allowed her to teach; nowhere do we see GOD allowing a woman to teach! Notice the punishment God has in store for those who allow women to teach and preach, as well as the same punishment for those who follow women teachers and preachers and pastors?
So, the Word of God makes it (t-totally clear, as my mother always says) that God HAS NOT,and that God WILL NOT call a WOMAN to preach! Remember, God said He doesn’t change (Malachi 3:6) and Jesus is the same EVERYDAY (Hebrews 13:8).
If I tell you to let my sister know that dinner will be at 7pm tonight at my house, did I just command or ordain you to go preach? NO! So Mary telling the disciples to meet Jesus in Galilee WAS NOT a commission to go PREACH! Where does it say Jesus told her to PREACH ANYTHING? The answer? NOWHERE! So, where do you get the lie from that she was a preacher?
If you carry your Bible with you does it make you a preacher? NO! So Mary being pregnant with Jesus DID NOT make her a preacher! Does the BIBLE say she was a PREACHER or that she PREACHED? The answer? NO! So why do you lie and call her a preacher when GOD doesn’t?
NOWHERE in the Word of God (the Bible) is ANY woman EVER called a Deaconess (that word isn’t even in the Bible); and AGAIN, like the Bishop, she has to be HUSBAND of one WIFE according to 1Timothy 3:11-12! Unless she’s a lesbian, she can’t have a wife; and if she’s a lesbian she’s going to hell for that too!
Nor, is ANYWHERE in the Bible is a woman called a Minister, nor an Elder (for the SAME reasons she can’t be a deacon/deaconess or a Bishop), nor a Pastor, nor a Bishop, nor an Evangelist (it is the CHURCH who feminized a title that a woman isn’t even qualified to be), nor an Apostle (NO, there are NO women EVER called an APOSTLE in the Bible – anyone who says otherwise is delusional)! Nor is ANY person (male or female) called Missionaries by title or office. Missionary work is the same as humanitarian work (like helping with food, clothing, housing, etc… after a natural disaster occurs). Both the saved AND the unsaved can do that!
Let it be known! It is clear! If a woman gets up before a congregation at the same point in the service to do the same thing the pastor, or any other preacher, would do…. SHE IS PREACHING! Call it ‘reaching’, bringing the message, speaking, whatever. ALL of it is CONDEMNED by SCRIPTURE! Call it what you want she is STILL preaching, and STILL out of scripture! No matter if she does it in the pulpit or on the floor, or anywhere else! A woman with a blue or black uniform on with a badge, gun, handcuffs, walkie-talkie, night stick, etc… is no less of a police officer than a man wearing the same uniform and doing the same job. Stop trying to deny that many of you are just undercover preachers no matter if you admit that you are preaching or not!
So, what CAN a woman do? What can she be called if not any type of ‘clergy’ title or office?
Ø TITUS 2:3-5 The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; Thatthey may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.
Ø 1TIMOTHY 5:2 The elder women as mothers; the younger as sisters, with all purity.
ALL a woman can EVER be called, in God’s order, is MOTHER if she’s older and SISTER if she’s younger. NOTHING ELSE!
And the OLDER women are to teach ONLY the YOUNGER WOMEN! NOT PREACH! Any woman preaching to or teaching anyone else blasphemes the Word of God!
Listen, the Word of God speaks for itself!
Ø 2Peter 1:20-21 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: butholy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.
Ø Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
God says what He means, and means what He says! No hidden messages or private interpretations! Stop leaning to your own understanding! Stop this junk about using the Greek or Hebrew! You’re an English speaking person reading the Bible translated into English! How come you ONLY use that lame excuse for things you don’t like, but not where God talks of blessing or being prosperous? You’re crackpots! You profess yourselves wise, but instead you are fools! (Romans 1:22)
Listen, like Habakkuk 2:2 says, I have written the vision and made it plain! I have said EXACTLY what GOD said on this! No matter if some of you are foolish enough in your own eyes (Isaiah 5:20-21) enough to still believe in and/or accept the lie of there being such a thing as women preachers, it doesn’t change the fact the GOD still has not, and NEVER will EVER call women to preach! Just because you deny that and rebel doesn’t change the truth of the matter!
Ø EZEKIEL 2:6-8 And thou, son of man, be not afraid of them, neither be afraid of their words, though briers and thorns be with thee, and thou dost dwell among scorpions: be not afraid of their words, nor be dismayed at their looks, though they be a rebellious house. And thou shalt speak my words unto them, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear: for they are most rebellious. But thou, son of man, hear what I say unto thee; Be not thou rebellious like that rebellious house: open thy mouth, and eat that I give thee.
Ø GALATIANS 1:10-12 For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ. But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man. For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.
My job is tell you all the truth, and then your blood is off of my hands! Your soul is then lost by your own faults! The truth of the matter is that God has not and will not call a woman to preach!
To that, I leave you this message:
Ø ROMANS 3:3-4 For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect? God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.
Ø REVELATION 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
Ø HOSEA 4:6-9 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest tome: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children. As they were increased, so they sinned against me: therefore will I change their glory into shame. They eat up the sin of my people, and they set their heart on their iniquity. And there shall be, like people, like priest:and I will punish them for their ways, and reward them their doings.
Ø ISAIAH 5:13 Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge: and their honourable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst.
Ø EZEKIEL 3:17-21 Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel:therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me. When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul. Again, When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumblingblock before him, he shall die: because thou hast not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at thine hand. Nevertheless if thou warn the righteous man, that the righteous sin not, and he doth not sin, he shall surely live, because he is warned; also thou hast delivered thy soul.
