The Fall Of Adam
And so Adam ate of the fruit which Eve gave to him, and their eyes were opened to their spiritual and natural humanity before God. Adam then knew that the condemnation and ghostly shadow that came upon Eve, was the pale of death. With opened eyes, they knew they were dying. Their only hope was the mercy of God. They sewed fig leaves together, but God made them coats of skin as a sign that he gave them mercy. The wearing of holiness clothing by Apostolics is a sign of thankfulness for mercy and not dying lost. Those who deny holiness, do not wear garments of praise demonstrating the grace of God (ISA 61:3).
And thus, through lies of the serpent, the idea of the holiness of sin entered upon the world, and Adam fell from grace. Through God's mercy the two did not die that day. The coats of skin were tokens of GRACE. They would not die, but be spared. Likewise, each of us must receive a "covering" provided by Messiah, as a token of being spared. Acts 2:38-40 shows us how to obtain this robe of righteousness.
The serpent taught the holiness of sin doctrine to Eve, and she tried to convince Adam that sin would have a holy outcome. Because of the chain of events, it became a Divine decree that men rule over women forever. Women were thenceforth prohibited from any type of authority or power in Spiritual matters, such as building altars, being Priestesses in the Old Testament, being Apostles in the New Testament, or developing opinions on the Word of Reconciliation.
Eve did not obey the Word of God in Eden. She loved the false doctrine of the devil with all of her heart. For this cause, God drew the line on all women and they are forever excluded from the Priesthood of the Word of God.
When the Apostle Paul was led of the Holy Ghost, to give a reason why a woman could not bear authority in the Church and from teaching and preaching to men, he points back to the garden of Eden:
But I suffer (allow) 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 (1Timothy 2:12-14).
Paul does not even go back under the Law at this point to prove why a woman could never be a New Testament Preacher. He goes back to the natural law, decreed of God in Eden. He points to the Law of God that specifically says the woman has no rule over man. This Law enforces the principal that the woman has no rule over any man at any time. This law and principal remained in full force and effect throughout the entire Old Testament period of nearly 4,000 years. This is the true light, walk in it. This leaves no room for the doctrine started in the early nineteenth century by the National Women's Rights Organization, the Unitarian Church, and women libbers such as Antoinette L. Brown: that Paul was only trying to correct loud-mouthed women, who were yelling from one side of the Church to the other, asking their husbands questions. Paul's pointing back to Eve in Eden, being stripped of all authority and rule relating to man, exposes this "yelling" explanation as novelty and falsehood.
Paul points back to Eden, and Eve being deceived by the false teachings of the serpent. Any man or woman who belies and twists this text away from the impact of Paul's doctrine, is at variance with an Apostle of Jesus Messiah. Such a person is a gainsayer against Truth. There is an immutable Law of God in effect here, and anyone trying to abrogate it, by taking the role of the serpent and saying: "God hath not said", is teaching falsehood. We either accept God's Law or another lie from the heart of old slewfoot, via the mouths of his modern Gnostic disciples.
I urge all Apostolic Women to seek their places of honor before God, to resist the lust for power and authority they may envision by capturing a pulpit. Read the Word of God and accept its simplicity. Search for the true identity of the real Apostolic Woman. Do not repeat the errors of Eve. Keep the curse away from your home and family. Do not usurp authority, power, and rule, which you were not granted by God. Be a helpmate to your husband, not a steely-eyed masculine female, demonstrating a latent lesbian or transvestite spirit. Resisting the devil, is refusing to sin, although it appears a holy outcome may be the results. Let other Biblical women become your inspiration. Do not admire or be enticed to give honor to a woman preacher, who is out of place before God, her husband, her family, the Church, and the world.
Paul used the words "suffer not", which means "allow not", when instructing young Timothy on a woman's place in the Church. He points this young Man of God back to the Genesis account of Eve and her sin, where the word "rule" means "authority". Since authority is rule, they both carry the same weight in our discussion. The man shall "RULE" over, or have "AUTHORITY," over the woman. The woman is not to have rule or authority over any man.
There is not a single Scripture, where a man can give his wife partial or full rule or authority over himself. Therefore, no man can give his wife partial or full rule or authority over another man. To do so is a corruption of the marriage vows. In marriage vows, both the husband and wife pledge to one the other, that no person outside the union shall exercise the rule of the husband, and no person outside of the union shall come between a wife and her husband. What God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. This includes anyone trying to usurp partial or full rule or authority over the Scriptural roles of a husband and wife. Not even a Man of God has authority to suspend a husband's marriage right of rule and authority over his wife. And no Man of God can give a woman outside the marriage, partial or full authority over another wife's husband. The sovereignty of marriage lies outside of all power of the Five-Fold-Ministry.
Paul taught, that the "head of every man was Messiah." No woman preacher can ever get between a man and his wife, and presume to pastor him. No woman preacher can bear rule or authority over another woman's husband. Therefore, no true Apostolic man or woman will attend or support a Church were a woman preaches. They will never submit to any type of rule or authority from a woman over the Church. If it is unscriptural to have a woman to rule over the man in his home, it is unscriptural to go to Church and have some other man's wife ruling over him there. For those in search of the true Apostolic Woman, consider the following Scriptures:
For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Messiah is the head of
the Church (Eph. 5:23):
Therefore as the Church is subject unto Messiah, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing (Eph. 5:24).
