Women leading men, and especially their man, is a violation of Yehovah’s guiding principles on how a man and his woman are meant to live in. We saw in part 1 the first of two guidelines concerning how His men are to dress; His Ezrach men, beni Israel, wear tzitzit.
In part 2 we also saw how serious a matter this cross-dressing is to Yehovah. In the world it is the ever-changing “fashions” which determines what is appropriate dress and what is not for both men and women. But in Yehovah’s kingdom only the woman’s covering can decide what is appropriate for his woman to wear.
The Elohim [lawmaker and judge] of Israel, Yehovah says that it is an abomination for a woman to wear anything that pertains to a man and for a man to put on a woman’s garment.
“A woman shall not wear anything that pertains to a man, nor shall a man put on a woman’s garment, for all who do so are an abomination to Yehovah, your Elohim.” (Deu 22:5)
At the conclusion of the last segment of this series on the Yehovah’s dress code I said “But, what a woman wears is only the tip of the iceberg. What a woman does is a much more significant matter.”
Oh – how far we have fallen from what Yehovah wants for his people. Even in the last 70 years we have accepted much perversity as perfectly normal behavior. Our daughters are treated like sons and our women like men. Most would not even question whether a woman can do whatever a man does, we have all been simply been programmed to believe she can and should.
“There is a way that seems right to a man [אישׁ, eesh], and its end is the way of death.” (Pro 16:25)
Women Leading Men Is Not To Happen
Women dressing and acting like men began in earnest when their men went off to fight in both world wars. But these abominations have continued to soar out of control since then. We now have women leading men in the armed forces, women leading men in churches, women police officers, woman jailers, women judges, women in all branches of government, women leading men as heads of corporations to name some of the worst of the abominations.
Read my lips, “women leading men is not supposed to happen!” At least not in Yehovah’s kingdom.
“For Jerusalem stumbled, And Judah is fallen, because their tongue and their doings are against Yehovah, to provoke the eyes of His glory. The look on their countenance witnesses against them, and they declare their sin as Sodom; they do not hide it. Woe to their soul! For they have brought evil upon themselves. Say to the righteous that it shall be well with them, for they shall eat the fruit of their doings. Woe to the wicked! It shall be ill with him, for the reward of his hands shall be given him. As for My people [men, men, men], infants [immature men] are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O My people! Those who lead you [men] cause you to err, and destroy the way of your paths.” (Isa 3:8-12)
Women leading men and controlling men is what the wicked Jezebel spirit is all about. Women do not go off to war in Yehovah’s kingdom and He has no police or jails. The “elders” of Israel, the male heads of the families, are those who lead men and each man leads their own women. There are no female kings, priests or judges, nor will there be any in the future. “OMG we are so much more depraved now than we were in Egypt; please, come now Yehovah and deliver us from these abominations!”
Women Leading Men Is A Violation Of Yehovah’s Created Order
Almost all of the “occupations” that I mentioned above have women wearing things pertaining to a man. And if we can see the perversity of this wickedness then we can begin to see that there are far-reaching implications that few have ever even considered beyond this. In the Creator’s kingdom, is it acceptable to let our daughters go off uncovered to college or for our women / wives to take “jobs” which demand that another man or men rule over them? Where do we even get the idea that we should send our sons off to school? In Yehovah’s kingdom men train up their sons and their women have the bulk of the responsibility to train their daughters. There are no public schools in Yehovah’s kingdom, only unregulated home training.
“Yehovah, your Elohim has commanded me [Moses] to teach you [men], that you may observe them in the land which you are crossing over to possess, that you may fear Yehovah, your Elohim, to keep all His statutes and His commandments which I command you, you and your son and your grandson, all the days of your life, and that your days may be prolonged. Therefore hear, O Israel, and be careful to observe it, that it may be well with you, and that you may multiply greatly as Yehovah Elohim of your fathers has promised you– ‘a land flowing with milk and honey.’ “Hear, O Israel: Yehovah our Elohim, Yehovah is first! You shall love Yehovah, your Elohim with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. “And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your sons, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up.” (Deu 6:1-7)
With these new-found (at least to me in June of 2013) eternal truths in mind, I looked at the Proverbs 31 woman through new eyes. Does she serve anyone but her man?
” Pro 31:10 Who can find a woman of value? For her worth is far above rubies.[It took me 10 years, but I found a great one!]
Pro 31:11 The heart of her husband [her ba’al, her master] safely trusts her; so he will have no lack of gain.
Pro 31:12 She does him good and not evil all the days of her life.
Pro 31:13 She seeks wool and flax, and willingly works with her hands. [She is not working for others, she is working for herself and her family.]
Pro 31:14 She is like the merchant ships, she brings her food from afar.
Pro 31:15 She also rises while it is yet night, and provides food for her household, and a portion for her maidens. [Her activities help support the household and she has maid servants, not men servants.]
Pro 31:16 She considers a field and buys it; from her profits she plants a vineyard. [She does not put the family in debt by borrowing money, instead she adds to her lord’s, her ba’al’s wealth.]
Pro 31:17 She girds herself with strength, and strengthens her arms.
Pro 31:18 She perceives that her merchandise is good, and her lamp does not go out by night. [She works tirelessly.]
Pro 31:19 She stretches out her hands to the distaff, and her hand holds the spindle. [She makes clothing for her family.]
Pro 31:20 She extends her hand to the poor. Yes, she reaches out her hands to the needy. [The poor in Israel, that is.]
Pro 31:21 She is not afraid of snow for her household, for all her household is clothed with scarlet.
Pro 31:22 She makes tapestry for herself; her clothing is fine linen and purple. [She makes clothing for herself also and she looks good.]
Pro 31:23 Her husband [her ba’al] is known in the gates, where he sits among the elders of the land. [She does not sit among the elders.]
Pro 31:24 She makes linen garments and sells them, and supplies sashes for the merchants. [She sells only her merchandise.]
Pro 31:25 Strength and honor are her clothing; she shall rejoice in time to come. [She might not always be rejoicing now; but her fruit, in time to come, will bring great rejoicing and reward.]
Pro 31:26 She opens her mouth with wisdom, and on her tongue is the law of kindness. [She is a wise woman who, as a woman of worth, knows her duties and responsibilities.]
Pro 31:27 She watches over the ways of her household, and does not eat the bread of idleness. [She puts her family ahead of her own needs.]
Pro 31:28 Her sons rise up and call her blessed; her husband [her ba’al] also, and he praises her: [saying]
Pro 31:29 “Many daughters have done well, but you excel them all!”
Pro 31:30 Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, but a woman who fears Yehovah, she shall be praised. [Charm and beauty is where the world puts its focus; but that is not so among Yehovah’s people.] “
So you see, this wonderful woman fears Yehovah and serves only her ba’al; her actions reflect her created purpose as an E·zer ke·neg·Do, an aide suitable.
Am I saying that a woman should not work for another man? No, not directly! But I am saying that her ba’al has to make that decision before Yehovah; and any sin his woman commits is on him.
Am I saying a woman should not be a judge, politician, soldier, police officer, pastor, boss, or other leaders of men? Oh – most definitely, I am!
