God Drew The Line
Old Testament Against Women Priestess
God Drew The Line In The Garden
A revisit into the Genesis record of the fall of Eve, will set God's Law and authority for a male only Priesthood. If we will receive the revelations written there, we will not question why God prohibited women from ever being mediators as an Old Testament priestess or a New Testament preacher.
And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: For in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die (Genesis 2:16-17).
The line between life and death was believing the Word of God or believing the word of the serpent. Eve crossed the line and believed the devil. God drew the line then against all women afterward in regards to the Priesthood of his Word.
You will remember that the serpent lied to Eve and said she would not die. She believed the devil and this automatically meant she did not believe God that she would die. This is the original false doctrine of the holiness of sin. It is the basis of all false doctrines throughout the ages, i.e., a person may believe a lie, commit sin, believe they are still holy, and claim to be saved and exempt from all punishment.
First, a false doctrine changes God's Word and substitutes it with a lie. So those looking for permission to sin, will resort to making Scripture contradict itself by offering a substitute doctrine. Second, a false doctrine teaches that through disobedience and doing what God strictly forbids, a person is more holy than those who refuse to accept and commit sin. Third, those who love this sensual false doctrine claim a superior salvation, based upon liberalism of the flesh to commit sin without penalty. This is how Eve was deceived. She loved these lies. The devil promised Eve she would become (equal) like God. She fell in love with the lies of the serpent to the damnation and ruination of her soul. Fourth, a false doctrine or lie promises to give the person believing it, eternal life. So, according to the doctrine of the devil, eternal life is not secured in faith obedience to the Word of God. The devil gets people to believe eternal life is received by wishing. They erroneously call this faith, all along believing a substitute false doctrine. This is what the serpent intended, when he told Eve, "ye shall not surely die." He added the word "not" to the Word of God forming a new substitute lying hope. She had faith it was true. Believing something based upon a lie, and accepting it by faith, is exactly the deception the devil pulled on Eve. Therefore, faith is only valid when directed in love toward obedience to the Truth. Religious emotions and feelings associated with believing a lie is not evidence of Biblical faith. In fact, the working of miracles is not always an evidence of Biblical faith (Matthew 7:22-23).
Those who believe in women priestesses and preachers, believe we who reject their doctrine will go to hell. We are not allowed to preach the full gospel in the pulpits, where a man has ordained his wife or some other woman to Preach. One reason for this book, is to bootleg the truth into these citadels of error and spread it among saints who are deceived. These Churches and Pastors fear that we will teach against women preachers and their Gnostic heritage will be exposed. The Five-fold Ministry is thus rejected and barred from the duty of perfecting the Church (Eph. 4:12). Only those Ministers who agree to compromise and not get on the subject, are allowed behind these pulpits. There is no doubt that these Ministers who agree to being muzzled, do so for the offerings, ego, man-given esteem, or pulpit courtesy they would not otherwise receive. So, women preachers are sanctioned by compromise, money, and closed pulpits.
Eve Is Deceived
By False Doctrine
But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety, so your minds (not your wombs) should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Messiah (2Corinthians 11:3). The following is a narrative of the Eden tragedy. I have paraphrased the Scriptures to expose that the rationale of modern liberalism is rooted in the sin and fall of man. I probed into the mind of Eve, to bring out the mental strategy she had to go through, to believe the serpent's lies:
Satan: I think I'll corrupt Eve's mind and deceive her into believing that she can become a god. I will convince her that God lied, to keep her in bondage to a religious law with false threats of dying. I will get her to love my false doctrine that sin is holy and that she will not die. With these tricks, she will eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. I will encourage her to exalt herself above God, exactly as I did in heaven. Once she is damned, I will send her to Adam and deceive him also. If I can pull this off, God will curse them as he did me and my demons.
Satan: I will ruin this new creation. Hey Eve, come over here to the Tree of Knowledge.
Eve: What do you want?
Satan: I have some very important things to teach you.
Eve: Should I get Adam so he can learn also?
Satan: This is just for you. You can instruct Adam later.
Eve: But, what if Adam objects to what you want to teach me?
Satan: Trust me Eve. You will desire what I am about to teach you. You can convince Adam later. He won't reject you. He loves you.
Eve: Yes, he loves me. And because he loves me, he has told me repeatedly, not to go near that tree.
Satan: You have too much fear Eve. You're under religious bondage with all that fear. You're a grown woman. You're equal to Adam. God made you from Adam's side, not from his foot. Adam has no right to make you afraid.
Eve: Eve thinks to herself. . . I need to quit thinking of myself as a woman and reach out to my highest potential. Eve ponders......God did made us equal and Adam needs to give me my space.
Satan: You have only to fear yourself, Eve (silent chuckle).
Eve: OK, I'm here by the tree. Now what?
Satan: Look at the tree Eve. Looking will not harm you. Fill your heart with the innocence of this tree. Look only upon the good (the television and video lie anciently told). This tree contains knowledge. By eating the fruit on this tree, you will become a god. Hath God not said ye may eat of all the trees in the garden?
Eve: God told us that 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.
Satan: Ye shall not surely die. God has only frightened you. 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. Just think, you can have power and authority like God. You can teach this to Adam. Both of you can become gods. You can be proud of yourselves. Just think how God will rejoice that you have learned all on your own how to be a god equal to him.
Eve: Eve ponders.....I will only look at the good then, because I need to make a positively, and not a negatively, influenced decision. The fruit does look good for food. The tree is very beautiful. Eve speaks: And you say I'll become a god with power and authority and knowing good and evil if I eat the fruit? Before the serpent could answer, Eve continued: serpent, would you explain what evil is?
Satan: Evil is a matter of opinion, Eve. I believe evil is bondage to religious laws. Evil is when a person is under fear of judgment if they don't obey certain do's and don'ts, laws and rules, this is evil. You can be holy without obeying these. Bondage to fear is the greatest evil. God is love. There is no fear in love. God loves you enough that a little evil or sin will not hurt. If God cannot love you because you do some little sin, then he is not sovereign because sin is greater than he. You're in bondage through fear Eve. Aren't you tired of the rules that limit your freedom and self expression? Do you want to reach your greatest human potential? This tree is hiding godhead from you. Eat and see!
Eve: Is that so? I've been wondering why He denied us to eat of this tree. I will cast away my fear. God will love me. My sin won't be greater than his sovereignty. I will not allow the bondage of fear of dying, to keep me from being a god. NO FEAR lives here. . . I'm the no-fear woman. Pluck! She rapidly placed it to her mouth, and ate.
Satan: Look at yourself Eve. You looked at the fruit and you did not die. You touched the fruit and you did not die. You ate of the fruit and you did not die. Did I not tell you, that you would not die? Soon you will turn into a god. You have been taught that God lied to you and Adam. He didn't want you both to have the office of a god equal to him. That's why he forbade you to eat the fruit. As a messenger of good news, go to Adam and teach him the doctrine I have just taught you. See, you are now greater than he. If he does not accept your Priestesshood, (acting as a mediator) he will never become a god. You will be greater than he forever.
Eve: So far, what you have taught me appears the truth. I have disobeyed God and I did not die. I have touched the fruit and I did not die. I have eaten the fruit, and I did not die. I have learned that fear of dying is bondage and evil. I have overcome fear and evil and I have not died. I have been taught to let my eyes fill my heart with things I think are good. (The first sin was to do that which was forbidden and try to make it have a holy outcome without punishment.) Eve no doubt reasoned, as many today, that no one had a right to rule over her actions. As all women and men who apostatize, they decide unto themselves to be self-ruled by laws and personal convictions. Eve no doubt spoke to the serpent, "what else has God hidden from us?"
Satan: God has hidden power from you because you are a female. There will be neither male or female, because as a goddess, you will have equal power with Adam. You may have been created female, but today you are liberated. You will be the first teacher. The female will be the first messenger. I ordain you. Take what I have taught you and trust it to come to pass as I have prophesied over you.
Eve: Shall I go and take the message to Adam and teach him?
Satan: Yes, but take some fruit along, if you want him to believe you have touched and eaten the fruit and did not die.
Eve: This fruit sure is beautiful ( Pluck).
Adam: Eve, where have you been? I have been looking all over for you.
Eve: Adam darling, I have things to teach you. (Both hands are tucked behind her back holding the fruit).
Adam: Eve, you are different. You do not look the same. What has happened?
Eve: I appear different Adam, because I am a teacher and turning into a goddess . . . laughter. Can't you tell?
Adam: Eve, you aren't turning into a goddess. You don't resemble anything like a god.
Eve: Adam, I have been taught new knowledge. If you will quit staring at me, I'll teach you what I have learned. I can make you into a god. I have something in my hands that can make you equal to God. God has us living in fear and bondage, Adam. Think of it. We are afraid to die, so we obey rules in fear. We can become gods. We will not die. We don't need to be afraid any more. We can be out from under bondage. I can prove it. LOOK! I have not died.
Adam: What kind of message is this you deliver to your husband?
Eve: The serpent sent me to teach you that bondage is fear. I am free of that religious bondage now. I no longer fear of dying. I am very much alive. Adam honey, I will teach you the most wonderful doctrine of being like God. You, Adam, can become a god. Together, we can be gods and live happily ever after. Here, eat this fruit and see.
Adam: Eve, I fear you have been deceived. Where did you get the fruit?
Eve: From the gnosis tree in the midst of the garden, Adam. I looked at the fruit and I did not die. I touched the fruit and I did not die. I then ate the fruit and I did not die. I am turning into a god as we speak. I am feeling a change coming over me even now. You also can become a god. Just eat and soon you will feel what I am feeling. It will start taking effect the moment you eat it. I am tingling all over now because of it. See, I told you I could prove it!
Adam: Eve, you are not turning into a god. Your skin looks so pale. Your face has a gloomy shadow cast upon it. Eve, you might be dying honey. The day is not over yet!
Eve: This TRUTH suddenly brought condemnation and Eve began to cry. Adam, these feelings. . . I don't know what they mean. I am confused. I don't know what to believe. Eve reached out her hands to Adam, one clutching the forbidden fruit, please help me she begged! God will come to visit us soon. Help me Adam? Deep sobs whimper from Eve's heart. . . . .
Adam: Adam embraced his wife tightly and quickly grasped the fruit. In Adam's mind he was thinking. . . Not my will Eve, but thine be done. He hurriedly agreed to taste death for his bride (Hebrews 2:9). Eve, honey.....I love you. I will give myself for you. You were deceived. Together, we will face God. I know that eating the fruit will not make me a god. I know we will be punished. We may die before the day is over. I am not eating because I believe the message of the serpent you delivered to me (1 Timothy 2:12-14). Perhaps, through the mercy of God, he shall let us live and give us another chance.
In the foregoing adapted parable, you will notice there are four entities involved here: GOD, the serpent, Eve, and Adam. The serpent becomes the prophet, teacher, and messenger, and Eve is his student. Then Eve is made a teacher, a prophetess, and is ordained as a messenger, to take the fruit and go teach Adam. The serpent is transformed into a "good-god," and GOD is made to be evil. Eve is a messenger of the "good-god," the serpent. It was necessary for her to reject GOD, as being evil and suppressive, in order for her to believe she would not die. Eve ate of the tree of knowledge. The word "knowledge" is the Greek word "gnosis" from which is derived Gnostic, agnostic, and Gnosticism. The basis and structure of the Gnostic false religion started in Eden. I have merely brought out the facts of it in this parable, taken from the actual account, reasonings, and events which happened in Eden.
An image of Semiramis and Tammuz, found at Babylon. Notice that she is wearing earrings which symbolizes idolatrous worship. Because of this, Jacob commanded that earrings be removed from Rachel and Leah before they arrived at his father Isaac's house in Bethel. (Genesis 35:2-4) The above idol is representative of Eve and Cain.
