Yehovah created everything for a purpose. The stars, the sun, the moon, the heavens, the earth, the behemah (four-footed animals), the fish, the birds and even the creeping things all live and perform according to His intended purposes for them. Even the unclean animals like pigs, dogs and vultures are being fruitful and multiplying as they clean up the earth and multiply the cleaners. In part 1 we talked about “What Is Man and what is his created purpose before Yehovah on the earth. Now I want to ask “What Is Woman and what is her created purpose?”
The man (ha a Dam) was created from the ground and in the image of Yehovah, to tend the earth and to follow only Yehovah’s eternal and unchanging ways.
And Yehovah Elohim (the lawmaker and judge) formed the man (ha a Dam) of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and the man (ha a Dam) became a living being. (Gen 2:7)
Then Yehovah Elohim took the man (ha a Dam) and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it. (Gen 2:15)
What Is Woman?
What is Yehovah’s intended purpose in the creation of the woman? Is she fulfilling His purpose today?
The sole purpose of a woman is to serve her man; a woman is in obedience to Yehovah when she is in obedience to her man. She was created to be an “aide suitable” for her man, not a partner or an equal in authority, she is his helper. I discuss this concept at length in my writing called “Creation of woman.” The man (ha a Dam) called his woman (there is no Hebrew word for wife) “bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh.” She is he, and his flesh always obeys him.
Yehovah never even talked to the woman until she was in trouble for disobeying her man, and these are the only words He ever said to her.
“I will greatly multiply your sorrow and your conception; in pain you shall bring forth sons; your desire shall be for your husband, and he shall rule over you.” (Gen 3:16)
Yehovah did not say “I will rule over you.” He said her man should! If Yehovah’s commandments were for the woman, He would be usurping the authority of her man. He will not do that.
All of Yehovah’s commandments, His statutes, His judgments and His ordinances were given to His son, Israel’s seed (perversely known as “the children of Israel”). You will see this very clearly in my article called “Yehovah gave His sons the commandments.” It is His spiritually born sons who then have the responsibility to teach His ways to their families, their servants, and the Ger (the stranger) who dwells with them.
A woman never calls Yehovah”adoni” (“my master”) and a woman has no relationship to the Creator without a man in her life. A woman is not allowed in the tabernacle or the temple. She can not even enter into covenant with Yehovah without a man; only her man can do that. This is what Passover is all about; a renewing of our covenant with Yehovah each year. This covenant renewal was called the “Time of Life” before it was called the Passover; and it is what Abraham was doing in Genesis chapters 17 and 18.
This is My covenant which you shall keep, between Me and you and your descendants after you: every male child among you shall be circumcised; and you shall be circumcised in the flesh of your foreskins, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between Me and you. (Gen 17:10-11)
And when a stranger [Ger] dwells with you [the Ezrach, Israel’ seed] and wants to keep the Passover to Yehovah, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him come near and keep it; AND HE SHALL BE [come] AS ONE BORN IN THE LAND [an Ezrach]” (Exo 12:48)
Since a woman is one with her man, when her man enters into covenant with Yehovah and becomes a native-born son, she becomes a native-born daughter. This makes for a very strong family bond (not always one of marriage) because a woman needs to be subject to her man to find life eternal. Abigail was so given over to her man Nabal that she was even willing to die for her unrighteous man. When David came to kill him and all the men of his household, Abigail said to David “let his sins fall on me.” She was saying, “kill me!” A woman of worth will always lay down her life in to service her man, just as a man must set aside his goals, his dreams, even his life to serve only Yehovah. In Yehovah’s kingdom everybody serves somebody. Abigail understood her place of safety and was willing to die to protect him. Wow! Not too many single women like that around.
Incidentally, the night after David had gone, Yehovah killed Nabal and left Abigail free to take another master; and when David heard she was available he sent his servants to get her and she became His third woman. We will see this scenario happen many times in the coming last days as Yehovah destroys the men who will not lead their families properly and preserves the life of the woman of worth who has learned to lay down her life in service to her man. There is a reason, in the last days, why seven women will take hold of one man.
And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, “We will eat our own food and wear our own apparel; only let us be called by your name, to take away our reproach.” (Isa 4:1)
What is their reproach? They do not have a man in their life and now they know they need one. I talk about this at length in my writing called the “144,000 – Virgin of Israel.” The world’s ideas concerning what constitutes adultery are perverted and not in alignment with Yehovah’s eternal and unchanging words given through Moses.
But I must go one more step further in answering the question “What is woman?”
A man’s woman is his property; and every woman must belong to some man. A father gives his daughter to another man; and that man takes her to himself. The 10th commandment makes this very clear; it is all about coveting our neighbor’s property.
“You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s woman, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s.” (Exo 20:17)
I find it interesting that the neighbor’s woman is listed among the house, male and female servants and even his ox and his donkey and that she does not even get top billing, the house is listed before her. How many houses, male and female servants, oxen and donkeys can a man possess?
Helen Reddy in her song “I am woman!” wrote “I am strong, I am invincible, I am woman.” These are subtle ideas which help to reinforce the false image that a woman does not need a man in her life. That wicked idea is part of the broad road which leads to destruction. For a woman of worth it is not about her – it is about her man. The “woman” in the Song Of Songs makes this clear also, throughout the play she goes through a metamorphosis and finishes with these words.
I am my beloved’s, and upon me is his desire. [His desire will be done in me!] (Son 7:10)
What Is Woman?
What is woman? She is nothing, without a man in her life! A woman who will not repent, lay down her life and serve only her man is no different from a man who will not repent, lay down his life and serve only Yehovah; neither has a relationship with Yehovah because they both are acting outside of His created purpose for them.
This is why a woman never leaves her man. (See my 4 part of my series on “Divorce and Remarriage.“)
This is why Yehovah commands each His sons to take care of their widows and their fatherless children. (See the 4 part series on “Widows and Orphans“)
I understand these are difficult words for people, especially women, to hear. A hundred years ago my words would have been received much differently then they are today; but this is only because we have all accepted so much perversion as truth. Only the truth will set us free to live as Yehovah intended.
What is woman? A precious gem to her ba’al, her master.
Who can find a woman of worth? For her value is far above rubies. The heart of her husband (her ba’al) safely trusts her; so he will have no lack of gain. (Pro 31:10-11)
