Serve Your Man – UY 3

woman's priorities, unequally yoked, women serve men, serve your man, woman's role, role of a womanYehovah created women to serve in many capacities; as a man’s daughter, his servant, his concubine (a woman that he takes to himself from the servant quarters) or his woman, a.k.a. his “wife” (a woman he takes to himself who is free). Learning to serve your man, your covering, your ba’-al, your adon is the goal for every woman.

Nowhere in Torah does Yehovah tell a woman to do anything. He only instructs His men to teach their women what they are to do.

[Note: This is part 3 in the Unequally Yoked (UY) series. In Unequally Yoked – UY 1 we saw that in Yehovah’s kingdom the percent of women who initiate a divorce is 0%. And in Men serve Yehovah – UY 2 we saw that a man is to keep Yehovah’s statutes, ordinances and judgments and that a woman of worth keeps those of her man.]

Yehovah said,

Your desire shall be for your man [אישׁ , eesh, and he shall rule over you. (Gen 3:16)

Many, most translations translate “אישׁ ” – your eesh / your man as “husband,” but that very poor translation both limits and perverts any deeper understandings for us. A daughter has a father (a man, a master) whom she is taught to serve in preparation for serving her man, her master in the future. A female servant also has a master whom she serves.

Proverbs 31, in most translations, uses the word “husband” and perverts our understandings; the Hebrew word ba’-al is often translated as “husband,” but it is a mistake to limit ba’-al to just a husband.

Who can find a woman of worth? For her value is far above rubies. The heart of her ba’-al [בעלה – her master] safely trusts her; so he will have no lack of gain. She does him good, and not evil, all the days of her life. [This precious woman of worth only serves one man, her ba’-al, all the days of her life.] She seeks wool and flax, and willingly works with her hands. [She is not working for others, she is working for her ba’-al and his family.] (Pro 31:10-12)

Yehovah is a ba’-al, master over His sons.

For as a young man marries [בעלה, ba’-al] a virgin, so shall you marry [בעלה , ba’-al] your sons; and as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride, so shall your Elohim (your lawmaker and judge) rejoice over you. (Isa 62:5)

Serve Your Man!

The current day understanding of a “husband” and a “wife” are simply not found in Torah; but here is what is found about a man and his woman.The woman (daughter, female servant, concubine and “wife”) was created by Yehovah to be an aide suitable. But is a woman who will not learn to obey only her man fulfilling this role?

Serve Your man VS A Jezebel Spirit

One of the biggest reason the world today is in complete disarray is because woman are being trained NOT to obey their man; and even worse, to subvert his rule in their life. Did Yehovah say, “Your desire shall be for your man, and he shall rule over you as long as you like what he says or does?” Does a servant always like what the master tells him or her to do? Does he or she get to question his instructions or even his motives? How is a woman of worth any different from any other woman in the world if she does not always obey her ba’-al? Does a servant have the right to decline the master’s commands for any reason?

I was taught all my live that a woman’s life priorities were:

  1. God
  2. Husband
  3. Family

But in this perverted scenario a man’s “bone of his bone and flesh of His flesh” might not always obey him. What’s up with that? Sounds like confusion to me. These “priorities” are not in line with Yehovah’s clear instructions which He gave to the woman. This is the reason that when a woman makes a vow; whether a daughter or a “wife,” and the man hears of it, he makes a decision whether the vow will stand or not. (See Numbers 30) Why? Because he is her head, her master.

In Yehovah’s system a woman’s priorities are:

  1. Caring for her master
  2. Caring for her master’s children
  3. Caring for her master’s property

Where is her focus?

Your desire shall be for your man … (Gen 3:16)

A woman who wants to serve Yehovah the way she was created, does so by obeying her man in all things.

I know, I struck another chord with that last sentence, because I said “in all things.” So because people are what they are, basically rebellious to Yehovah’s instructions; their response is usually something like, “What if he tells me to kill someone? Should I obey him then?

Let me ask you a question O “worthless woman” (that is the opposite of a woman of worth, one who does not have ears that hear or a heart that understands). Has that happened to you or anyone you know? Then let’s not ask silly questions. In Yehovah’s kingdom if a man does things that are that egregious he is killed and the woman (now a widow) is free to go back and serve her near of kin or be taken in by another man as a servant or “wife.”

Instead let’s get a better idea concerning what sin is and who commits it. When Chavvah, Eve, took the apple and ate it; what was her sin? Disobeying Yehovah or disobeying her man? I am going to suggest to you that the only way a woman can sin is to disregard her ba’-al’s instructions. Strong words, but consider this.

Can a woman go into the temple or tabernacle? Can a woman bring a sin offering for an unintentional sin? Is a woman required to partake in the Passover, or is it only for Yehovah’s men?

“Three times a year all your males shall appear before Yehovah your Elohim in the place which He chooses: at the Feast of Unleavened Bread, at the Feast of Weeks, and at the Feast of Tabernacles; and they shall not appear before Yehovah empty-handed. (Deu 16:16-17, Exo 23:17 & Exo 34:23)

And when a stranger [Ger] dwells with you 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 as a native of the land [Ezrach]. For no uncircumcised person shall eat it. (Exo 12:48)

In Her Sin Is On Him – UY 4 we will see that when a woman obeys her master, in something that ought not to be done, the sin actually falls on her man.
