What is a woman?

This has become quite an issue in the USA.   The reason is that many scholars and others today cannot define it.  What does the Bible say?  In Genesis 1&2 God explains the creation of the universe.  There is more emphasis on the only habitable planet and much more emphasis on God’s very special creation, man: 

“Then God said, ‘Let us make man in our own image, in our likeness….”’  Genesis 1:26a

Of the 56 verses about creation, more or less 14 have to do with man.  There is special emphasis on the creation of the woman out of the man.  God’s specific command to Adam and Eve were, 

‘Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth…’  Genesis 1:28a

Man and woman as husband and wife will fill the earth with children.  (Please note that not all couples have the privilege.  We have to accept that, and no discrimination against them, especially from God.)  Only women were created to bear children.  However, because of the rejection of God, confusion has become ‘normal.’  

Today in the modern world, the distinction between male and female is being obliterated.  Young people can change to another gender.  It is not natural but done by chemicals and operations.  Natural is the unique way God equipped male and female to ‘create’ children in the image of God, the Creator.  

That wonderful privilege from God is now abused.  It is so bewildering one almost has to become a student of the English language to know what cisgender, transgender and the myriad other names and personal pronouns mean.  

Conclusion 

To reject God comes with a cost – confusion. 

The curious case of the former American election

God, Possessor of Heaven and Earth, is in control of events on earth.  As non-Americans who benefited greatly from America, we are very interested in events that happen there.     

Therefore we were baffled by the former election.  Many prophets of God predicted that Mr Trump would be elected president of the United States for a second term.  It did not happen.  Although Mr Trump was the obvious choice, God drew attention to the fact that He gave America the president that the anti-God, anti-America group wanted.  Mr Biden quickly formed a government to oppose most of Mr Trump’s policies – to destroy America quickly.  Please note this is our opinion.   

Two aspects about America guarantees its destruction: 

1.  The division in the country which in many cases borders on pure hatred  against fellow Americans, just because of different beliefs.  Jesus formulated it, 

‘Every kingdom (nation) divided against itself will be ruined….’  Matthew 12:25b

2.  The desire to have a godless America.  It is like the builders of the Tower of Babel.  Their motto was, ‘Anything but God.’  The result was that God confused them.  This confusion is evident in America.  The elite, the professors and others cannot define what a woman, a boy or a girl is.  What about the justice system and many more God-given confusions.   

Conclusion

We see the hand of God in the former election.   As America destroys itself, countries like Russia, China, Iran and others become more aggressive.  It seems as if God is preparing a united anti-God force to attack His people, Israel.  The eventual goal will be that the world, 

‘…will know that I am the Lord.’  Ezekiel 39:6b

If Jesus was…..

In my journey with Jesus, I have many times read, saw or heard that Jesus was: 

  • Not part of the Godhead, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • Not born of a virgin.
  • Not resurrected from the dead.
  • Taught by an Eastern guru. 
  • And many, many more.  

I used to get upset about it.  After all, it is about the Savior whom I value above all else.   That was until I remembered the words of Jesus, 

‘If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated Me first.’  John 15:18

I realized that if and when people insult Jesus, or Scripture, nothing changes.  He remains the eternal Victorious Lamb of God at the right hand of the wonderful Father. 

What the insults, criticism, verbal abuse and whatever does, is to prove that the Word of God is true.  Why?   The Bible tells us that the world is under the control of the devil, 

‘We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one.’  1 John 5:19

If the people of the world, those under the influence of the devil, do not slander and despise the Triune God and the Word we should get very worried.  Then the Bible cannot be true.  But, as is proven by the continual barrage of criticism and faultfinding, the Bible is 100% reliable, trustworthy and the special Holy Spirit inspired Word of God.  The apostle Paul wrote, 

‘I am not ashamed of the Gospel….’  Romans 1:16a

I agree.  Never let go of confidence in the Word.  Every day the devil shouts in my ear, ‘The Bible is true, but I hate it if you believe it.  I don’t want you to be with God eternally.’  Well, thank you, Jesus.  My faith in you is just that much stronger because they hate you without reason.
