BE a SPIRIT-filled woman

The LORD's reassurance:

Revelation 3:10

King James Version

10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, 

I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, 

which shall come upon all the world, 

to try them that dwell upon the earth.


This article is a call to all women to heed GOD's WORD.

To take to humility, and not vanity.

To allow SPIRIT to teach us the ways of God.

To open our hearts, to God's TRUTH alone.

And to seek salvation in CHRIST.


Let's face it.

From day one, from the day we were fashioned from Adam's rib, Satan had his eyes on us.

But he also knew some things were off limits.

He knew he must not tempt God's DIRECT creation, Adam.

Ah, but with us women, we were subject to his deception, causing confusion in us.

Genesis 3:1-7

King James Version

3 Now the serpent was more subtil 

than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. 

And he said unto the woman, 

Yea, hath God said, 

Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?

2 And the woman said unto the serpent, 

We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:

3 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.

4 And the serpent said unto the woman, 

Ye shall not surely die:

5 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.

6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, 

and that it was pleasant to the eyes, 

and a tree to be desired to make one wise, 

she took of the fruit thereof, 

and did eat, 

and gave also unto her husband with her;

 and he did eat.

7 And the eyes of them both were opened, 

and they knew that they were naked

and they sewed fig leaves together, 

and made themselves aprons.


GOD knew something had gone wrong.

Genesis 3:11

King James Version

11 And he said, 

Who told thee that thou wast naked? 

Hast thou eaten of the tree, 

whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?


To which, Adam replied:

Genesis 3:12

King James Version

12 And the man said, 

The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, 

she gave me of the tree, 

and I did eat.


The LORD demanded an explanation from woman.

Genesis 3:13

King James Version

13 And the Lord God said unto the woman, 

What is this that thou hast done

And the woman said, 

The serpent beguiled me, 

and I did eat.


After that, GOD cursed the serpent, man, and woman.

Here's what GOD told woman:

Genesis 3:16

King James Version

16 Unto the woman he said, 

I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; 

in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; 

and thy desire shall be to thy husband, 

and he shall rule over thee.


Despite our original sin, God was like a father.

Genesis 3:21

King James Version

21 Unto Adam also and to his wife 

did the Lord God make coats of skins, 

and clothed them.


Long before I became born again, I was once offended by apostle Paul's statement:

1 Corinthians 14:34-36

King James Version

34 Let your women keep silence in the churches: 

for it is not permitted unto them to speak; 

but they are commanded to be under obedience as also saith the law.

35 And if they will learn any thing, 

let them ask their husbands at home: 

for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.

36 What? 

came the word of God out from you? 

or came it unto you only?


But now that I've been happily born again, I no longer take offense.

I let the WORD of GOD speak directly to me, with His HOLY SPIRIT making things plain, correcting me at every turn, with the objective:

John 16:8

King James Version

8 And when he is come, 

he will reprove the world of sin, 

and of righteousness, 

and of judgment:


Adam was the DIRECT creation.

Woman was taken from him -- to be his companion.

Thus, women are descendants of Adam.

As God designed us to be.

Genesis 2:21-24

King James Version

21 And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, 

and he slept: 

and he took one of his ribs, 

and closed up the flesh instead thereof;

22 And the rib, 

which the Lord God had taken from man, 

made he a woman, 

and brought her unto the man.

23 And Adam said, 

This is now bone of my bones, 

and flesh of my flesh: 

she shall be called Woman, 

because she was taken out of Man.

24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, 

and shall cleave unto his wife: 

and they shall be one flesh.


I cannot also take offense when Paul declared:

1 Timothy 2:12

King James Version

12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, 

nor to usurp authority over the man, 

but to be in silence.


The reason, being:

1 Timothy 2:13-14

King James Version

13 For Adam was first formed, 

then Eve.

14 And Adam was not deceived, 

but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.


Of course, many women would take offense at this.

As born again, I can't.

God makes things plain.

Even a child could understand it.

Only by being born again can we understand things of the Spirit.

JESUS pointed this out to us:

John 3:6-7

King James Version

6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; 

and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, 

Ye must be born again.


When I first sought God's TRUTH in April 2019, I sincerely wanted to be a better person.

To sin no more.

To be acceptable in the eyes of the LORD.

As a woman, I know we have been greatly deceived by the enemy, using our feminine wiles, to destroy man.

If Satan's angels in rebellion were once attracted to women, how much more mortal man.

Genesis 6:1-2

King James Version

6 And it came to pass, 

when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, 

and daughters were born unto them,

2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men 

that they were fair; 

and they took them wives of all which they chose.


The resulting hybrid, was definitely NOT high breed.

Genesis 6:4-5

King James Version

4 There were giants in the earth in those days; 

and also after that

when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, 

and they bare children to them

the same became mighty men which were of old, 

men of renown.

5 And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, 

and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart 

was only evil continually.


Thus, the flood.

Genesis 6:6-8

King James Version

6 And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, 

and it grieved him at his heart.

7 And the Lord said, 

I will destroy man 

whom I have created from the face of the earth; 

both man, 

and beast, 

and the creeping thing, 

and the fowls of the air; 

for it repenteth me that I have made them.

8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.


A woman after God's heart, will aspire to know GOD's TRUTH alone.

And that is all on the Bible, the WORD of GOD -- JESUS.

Everything was about JESUS in the Bible.

The preparation, the prophesies, the persecutions.

Man bears the original sin.

But our salvation is in JESUS alone.

Romans 3:23-24

King James Version

23 For all have sinned, 

and come short of the glory of God;

24 Being justified freely by his grace 

through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:


Adam and Eve fell, because of disobedience., even when GOD was clear about everything:

Genesis 2:15-17

King James Version

15 And the Lord God took the man, 

and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.

16 And the Lord God commanded the man, 

saying, 

Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:

17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, 

thou shalt not eat of it: 

for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.


Have a look at the world, and you will see what pervades.

Greed, lust, pride, vanity, abominations, perversions, murder, and disobedience.

In complete defiance of God's commandments.

And women are the subtle tool being used by the enemy, to cause man's further ruin.

We are the enemy's secret weapon.

But we are destroying ourselves, too.

Let us not be tools of the enemy.

Let us be SPIRIT-filled women, so we may bring forth SPIRIT-filled children, and support SPIRIT-filled men.

1 Peter 3:3-4

King James Version

3 Whose adorning let it not be 

that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, 

and of wearing of gold, 

or of putting on of apparel;

4 But let it be the hidden man of the heart, 

in that which is not corruptible, 

even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, 

which is in the sight of God of great price.


Deuteronomy 11:18-21

King James Version

18 Therefore shall ye lay up these my words in your heart 

and in your soul, 

and bind them for a sign upon your hand, 

that they may be as frontlets between your eyes.

19 And ye shall teach them your children, 

speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, 

and when thou walkest by the way, 

when thou liest down, 

and when thou risest up.

20 And thou shalt write them upon the door posts of thine house, 

and upon thy gates:

21 That your days may be multiplied, 

and the days of your children, 

n the land which the Lord sware unto your fathers to give them, 

as the days of heaven upon the earth.
