Why do so many Christians and believers say Jesus is God? Is He?

Jesus in the beginning:   He was being more of an example of perfection and slowly growing in to the authority ordained to Him by the Father. As a twelve year old child, he was already highly favored for his wisdom and knowledge of the Word and the Father. Preaching in the temple as a child, he was marveling even the most thought of as wise-men. From his birth, he was worshiped by wise men, divinely knowing him to be the Messiah. Even other kings feared their position and seeked to kill him as an infant, because of knowledge of the old testament prophets speaking that in the Land of Judah a Messiah is to come. Not wanting to believe that this child born in a barn, of a carpenter (Joseph) and a thought to be slave girl (Mary), it was hard for them to accept that Jesus was going to be the Messiah. The pure fact that the most highly respected wise-men came to him and praised him as an infant, the credibility became more threatening. Other kings and rulers were not taking any chances. As an infant they thought to kill him and every other two year old and younger male child in the region to make sure they accomplished their mission. This was ordered by king Herod. He must go!

The heavenly father knowing the evil in men's hearts divinely protected His son from birth. From the hands of all rulers and kings, from as far North as Rome all the way down to his homeland, where his fellow brethren the Jews seeked to take his life more than all, because they were losing clientel in the synagogues. Jesus led by example, his walk, his perfected speach and teachings. He was found to be blameless and a very loving man. The multiple miracles performed throughout every region of the Holy Land, from turning water into wine, opening blind eyes, rebuking demons out of many, lame men walking and storms calmed at his request was known throughout the lands. He even fed 5000+ people with a 2-piece fish meal. The bible even says some regions he led the multitudes of people, where ever he walked he healed them all! There is no biblical count of the number of people that where healed, nor a count of how many miracles were performed even in the presence of his brethren the Pharisees and Sadduccees and many chief priests. And they still were in disbelief and living in denial. They just could not accept that this little jewish boy born in a barn that they watched grow up and out of Bethlehem (of all places), was taking all of the multitudes of followers that they had once possessed. He was rendering them power-less. All glory and praise went to him instead of them now. The idea of the prophecy of Jesus being the King of the Jews was just plain unacceptable. Even though He was found blameless, they plotted against him, claiming his power was from demons with a little magic in the mix. Anything to get the people back worshipping and praising them instead of Jesus, the one called King of the Jews.

The Father knew the power hunger of men's hearts woud cause the chain of events of evil plots to come towards His son. So the Father pre-told us about his son from the very beginning, as far back as Genesis 3:15. Immediately he told the serpent as he decieved Eve. "I will put enmity between you and the woman and between your seed and her seed and He shall bruise your head and you shall bruise his heel!" (Gen. 3:15)    There is only one He (name) known to man and in the heavens that can bruise the head of serpent and that is the powerful name of the living Son of God, Jesus. If you read Deuteronomy 18:5 it says God has chosen one out of the tribes of the Jews to STAND AND TO MINISTER in the name of the Lord, him and his sons forever. This one being known as Moses and his sons. Then in the same chapter, same page, ten verses later, Deuteronomy 18:15, God says "I will raise up for you a prophet LIKE ME from your midst from your brethren, him you shall hear".    In Deuteronomy 18:16 God says speaking to the prophets "according to all you desired of the Lord your God in Horeb in the day of assembly, saying, 'Let me not hear again the voice of the Lord my God, nor let me see this great fire anymore, lest I die.'"    In Deuteronomy 18:17 God says " ...What they have spoken is good." Meaning in that day of assembly, of the PROPHET LIKE HIM to come. He would NO LONGER SPEAK HIMSELF OR SHOW HIS GREAT FIRE OF WRATH. The next verse, Deuteronomy 18:18 is the evidence. It says "I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their brethren (the Jews) and I will put MY WORDS in HIS MOUTH and HE SHALL SPEAK to them all that I command him. And Deuteronomy 18:19 says " And it shall be that WHOEVER WILL NOT hear My words, which HE speaks in My name, I will require it of him ".    Here God is saying that He will require his people and directs the brethren of the prophets, to hear all that He commands FROM HIM THAT HE WILL SPEAK THROUGH. Because in that day of assembly, when the prophet has matured (Jesus) GOD HIMSELF WILL NO LONGER SPEAK ANYMORE OR SEND FIRE.

Please understand that this is the Old Testament Word of God saying this, not me or any other human. Please read (click on) Deuteronomy 18 verse 5-22 so that you can fully understand it in your own heart. There are 10372 verses in the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, preaching the coming of Christ. As far as the Old Testament, there is not a more distinctive, direct or more undeniable approach to touching upon the subject of: is Jesus the Messiah? Reason being is that verse 5 of Deuteronomy 18 clearly states that God has chosen one out of the Jewish tribe to STAND AND MINISTER in the Name of the Lord - him and his sons also forever (Moses and sons) and then in verse 15 God says he will raise up one LIKE HIM from the midst of the brethren of the Jewish tribes and HIM YOU SHALL HEAR! The difference being, one is chosen to STAND AND MINISTER in the Name of God (Moses and sons). In verse 15, the other prophet is RAISED UP AND LIKE GOD. None can be like God but his only begotten son Jesus. None could be perfect enough for God, who cannot lie, to make that statement.

OK, so God chose a prophet Moses and his sons to speak for Him before Jesus arrived and He says He chose to raise up a prophet like Him. And let's say maybe it is Jesus, his Son and OK, they tried to kill Him from his birth and the father had to protect his Son from birth. It's still His Son! God was protecting his Son, not himself. There's a father God and a Son. Jesus prayed to God his Father, not himself. When he died, he prayed to his Father and ... himself into His hands. His hand being the Father God, not himself. How can Jesus be God? And maybe John is the prophet that was the one God talked about and if Jesus was God's Son, how come he died? What father would let his son die like that, expecially if he was God? I think if anyone could be God or had a chance to be, I can't believe he'd let his son die and be so tortured...they say he was. And what about the fact that because Jesus did die, maybe the Messiah really hasn't come yet?

SO, IS JESUS GOD?   The answer to this QUESTION OF THE YEAR:

The Old Testament prophesies have said the coming of the Messiah, the King of the Jews, would come from out of Bethlehem in the land of Judah. These Old Testament prophesies were shown by the Jewish chief priests and scibes to king Herod, for he was asking, because the three wise men had been searching for a newborn, believed to be the king of Isreal. So who better to ask about the Old Testament prophesies than the chief priests and scribes. It's amazing that he, king Herod, believed the prophesies to be true, obviously, because he tried to have baby Jesus killed as described in the prior contents. And yet, after reading the prophesy to the king themselves, the chief priests still had their doubts.

Back to getting to the answer. John couldn't have been the Messiah as thought, because he preached in the wilderness of the One to come who was before him and shall come after. John said it himself (John 1:15), "This was He of whom I said, 'He who comes after me is preferred before me, for He was before me.'" (John 1:16), "And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace," meaning the one Jesus, the like-God prophet (Deuteronomy 18:15) was the fullness of God and the grace for all who would receive Him. And it couldn't have been Moses because in the next verse, (John 1:17) he says "For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ." This is confirmation describing the earlier text from Deuteronomy 18:5, the prophet who'd STAND AND MINISTER in the Name of the Lord - Moses, and then in Deuteronomy 18:15, the PROPHET LIKE GOD, Jesus. John 1:18 says "No one has seen God at any time. The only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, HE has declared HIM!" Now the last words of that testimony of John was too much to swallow for the priests and levites. That's saying the Son is in the bosom of Him, so God the Father is declaring His Son to be Him!

That's a little much to swallow, even for some today, let alone for the Jews of John's time. God declaring his Son to be Him. After they went back to the chief priests and told them of what John said, it sounded like blasphemy to them also. So they sent out more qualified Levites and priests to question him. (John 1:19), they asked "Who are you?" The next verse (John 1:20) "he confessed, and did not deny, but confessed, 'I am not the Christ.'" Well, that aleviates John. (John 1:21) So they asked him "What then? Are you Elijah?" He said, "I am not". "Are you the Prophet?" John said "No." (John 1:22) they said to John "Who are you, that we may give an answer to those who sent us? What do you say about yourself?" Now can you blame them for wanting to know? His statement about God declaring his son to be Himself, a part of Him, His bosom, is definitely questionable! Even to this day! John answered them in verse (John 1:23) He said "I am 'The voice of one crying in the wilderness: Make straight the way of the Lord," as the prophet Isaiah said! (In the Old Testament). So now we know John said he's neither Christ, Elijah nor the Prophet. And he told them that Moses had already fulfilled his mission for God by ministering the law given. And that he is fulfilling his mission for God just as prophets before and Isaiah had said. John prepared the way for the Messiah by his call to repentance, not even knowing Jesus to be the Christ yet. He was trusting God by preparing the way by telling the people "repent, repent for the kingdom of God is at hand". That's the same as saying God is at hand or here. What declarations John had made! He finally met Jesus while baptizing people in the Jordan river. When Jesus walked up to him, divinely John was told by God who this man was and John said (John 1:29) "Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world." Jesus stood before John ready to be baptized and naturally John thought it odd that he would be the called to baptize the Christ himself! But being continually obedient, he did so. And while doing so, he was led by the Spirit to tell the people (John 1:30) "This is He of whom I said, 'After me comes a Man who is preferred before me, for He was before me." (John 1:31) John says "I did not know Him; but that He should be revealed to Israel, therefore I came baptizing with water." And while lifting Jesus up from the water, the spirit of God came upon John and Jesus. (John 1:32) And John bore witness saying, "I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and He remained upon Him. (John 1:33) John said "I did not know Him, but He who sent me to baptize with water said to me, 'Upon whom you see the Spirit descending, and remaining on Him, this is He who baptizes with the Holy Spirit' (John 1:34) and said: I have seen and testified that this is the Son of God." Some of the people received it with joy and got baptized, including the scribes and priests. Some even witnessed and believed, some remained in denial, yet the news of it got back to the chief priests and scribes. (I wonder if anyone ever branded their camel with the symbol of the dove, after recieving the Holy Spirit, as we so proudly do today on our cars!?)

John must have developed great respect by the people. He made some very powerful statements contrary to the belief of the rulers, chief priests and scribes. His telling the people I haven't seen or known Him who is coming, but God say's He is Him! Bold! Let's look at other declarations God has made on this subject. In the bible Jesus is called so many names from Genesis to Revelations. Not only was Jesus described as the Bosom of the Father, he was actually claimed to be the Word of God himself. (John 1:1) says "In the beginning was the Word (Jesus), and the Word was with God (in his bosom), and the Word was God." Now this is again God saying this declaration. (John 1:2) "He was in the beginning with God" (none but Jesus). (John 1:3) All things were made THROUGH Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made." Who is God describing as Him? It could be none other than His son Jesus. (John 1:4) "In Him was life, and the life was the light of men." (John 1:5) "And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it." By God's design, darkness would always be INFERIOR to light, Victory actually was won from the beginning, HALLELUJAH.

(John 1:6) "There was a man sent from God, who's name was John." Jesus told his desciples that there was none greater than John. Why is obvious; he was sent from God for only one purpose, ordained before birth, when Mary divinely knew she had to go see her cousin Elizabeth. She almost died on her way, being so late with child and the distance so far. Elizabeth was pregnant with John, who had not kicked for weeks. When worried Elizabeth saw Mary, John instantly kicked her so hard she cried of joy. The second she reconized Mary was pregnant, the Spirit of God divinely told them both the purpose of Elizabeth's child: to prepare the way for the Messiah, whom she knew was Mary's child. They rejoiced and praised God! (John 1:7) says "This man came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all THROUGH him might believe." The key word THROUGH is the gate of understanding. God does and did everything THROUGH Him, His son Jesus. Let's get back to John's note on THROUGH! (John 1:8) "He (John) was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. (John 1:9) "That was the true Light which gives light to every man coming into this world" (EVERY ONE, EVEN YOU! God used the word 'man' to describe mankind, not male or female.) (John 1:10) He was in the world, and the world was made THROUGH Him, and the world did not know Him." (John 1:11) "He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him." (John 1:12) "But as many as received Him, to them he gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name:" (John 1:13) "who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God." We must accept and believe in the name of Jesus to be born again; born of the Spirit. SAVED! God has declared His son the gateway of salvation.

GOD says His son is GOD, not man. GOD has declared Him, the word, the light, the king of the Jews, the king of Israel, the wonderful counselor, the lamb of God, the all before and all after, the alpha and omega, Jahweh (which means salvation), the Messiah, the Christ, the I-Am that I-Am, the good shepherd, the son of David (14 generations later), the Holy One, the Truth, King of Kings, Lord of Lords (which means none are higher), and in the Old Testament THE LORD THY GOD. All these names Jesus was called from Genesis to Revelations. But after all these names, He was still disbelieved and mocked even until this day. He was sent by God to His own people, US!! to be the door, the gateway of the kingom of God and as (John1:11) says above, some still don't receive Him, even though He is God's word himself. Evidence of that is the next verse (John 1:14) "The word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth." Lets go all the way back to the beginning of this chapter, which is the next verse in order of where I started this text. THE ANSWER from (John 1:15) "John bore witness of Him and cried out, saying, "This was He of whom I said, 'He who comes after me is preferred before me, for He was before me.'" It's amazing that John divinely knew that Jesus was before him in the spirit, but yet he was born physically before Jesus. (It makes you wonder if Jesus, while in the womb of Mary, ordained John himself at the arrival of seeing Elizabeth.) John himself called Him "the only begotten Son" and said He is in the bosom of the Father. John said, He the father declared him God. God said his son is himself in many chapters and ways. I think the best way he said it other than when Jesus declared it himself a few times like (John 10:30) "I and My Father are one", for Jesus to not have resurrected from death on the third day as prophesied in the Old Testament and as He said he would in the New Testament, and for Him to be dead would mean God is dead if they are one! (John 10:38) "...believe that the Father is in Me, and I in Him" and in (John 14:6) "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me" (the gateway, the door) how could Jesus make this statement if He is not alive and waiting at the door for you, and the next verse (John 14:7) "If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him." (God said He made us in His image!) Jesus is the life, the life can't be killed, that's why darkness can't comprehend it. (You can't even kill God's grass, even if it burns to crisp, just baptize it and voilla, it's back to life in three days.) We as humans, only our flesh can be killed, our spirit lives on eternally. It's destination is a matter of choice and free will. I'd rather be saved as well as all of you, because the other the bible describes as a DEFINITE bad choice; Life without God in eternall darkness.) Other than this, I believe we have to go way back to His first name before He even came out of the womb of Mary. The angel told Joseph: (Matthew 1:21-23) "And she will bring forth a Son, and YOU shall call his name JESUS, for He will save His people from their sins." (Matthew 1:22) "So all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying: (Matthew 1:23) Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and THEY shall call his name Immanuel, which is translated to "GOD WITH US". God declared it, from the beginning until the end!

God bless you and may grace, mercy and peace be upon you all through Christ Jesus, Amen.

2. REVENGE! Why not an eye for an eye? Seems only fair!

Revenge is mine, says the Lord (Deuteronomy 32:35, Romans 12:19). While Jesus was on earth facing the trials and tribulations, which in turn predicated our salvation, the devil, through man, beat, mocked, stressed, whipped, spit on, lied about, stoned, punched, tortured, pounded nails in his wrist and feet, hung him on a cross and while he was already down, stabbed him in the ribs. And in between mans sick actions, did every thing he could think of to Jesus. According to the Word, none has received as much torment, suffering and pain (not even Job). The bible says no eye for eye, no tooth for tooth (Matthew 5:38) turn the other cheek (Matthew 5:39), a man robs you, give him the rest. (Matthew 5:40). Love your enemy and pray for them (Matthew 5:44). It doesn’t even seem or sound fair does it? Other than the turn the other cheek part, I praise God that some of us can get past the wickedness and pray for our enemies when wronged.

Why should we not seek revenge? We wrestle not against flesh and blood but against powers of principalities (Ephesians 6:12). Not the flesh! The devil ENTERTAINS the evil thoughts in peoples minds to wrong us and people decide themselves to act upon it or not. He cannot make you do anything unless you have verbally sold your soul to him, and still God’s grace allows you to still have a choice in the matter and salvation is still at hand for you by repenting and accepting Jesus. Therefore, the devil would prefer us to be disobedient and try to fight for ourselves, because he knows we cannot inflict pain and torment upon him as Jesus can. Like when Jesus came in the presence of a demon possessed man, the demons panicked and said trembling in fear “we know who you are holy one son of God…what have we to do with you. Did you come to torment us before our time?” (Matthew 8:28-29). Jesus told them to be quiet and come out of him. They had no choice and knew it. They are so used to getting their way by means of mans disobedience that they said “before our time.” The victory is won already, the battle belongs to the Lord as he says. Revenge is mine, says the Lord. When you try to have revenge yourself, Satan loves it because your revenge is in the flesh. It does not even affect him, so he laughs at you and eggs you on. Remember, we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against powers and principalities. God writes the rules and regulations of the WWF (worldwide wrestling federation) matches in heaven and in the spiritual world. So when you try to get revenge yourself, you only help Satan, because his job is to kill, steal, torture, molest, sicken you by disease, stress you, heartbreak, every evil thing you can think of. The devil roams about as a thief in the night, seeking whom he may devour (1 Peter 5:8).

You have to know and respect that God says to put on your full armor and breastplate to protect you from the wiles of evil for a good reason (Ephesians 6:11-18). The reason being, He says that it’s because He created Satan and He knows that our power without Jesus is not a match for the wiles of the wicked. So we are to turn the fight over to the Lord. When we don’t, we take away the exceedingly great pleasure, joy and the chance the Lord gets to drop kick, head butt, body slam and foot stomp Satan. He gets to get back at the devil for all that he did to Him while He was here on earth. The angels get to participate and throw in a few kicks too, like your guardians and others get to be the audience, gloating about. A guaranteed win wrestling match in heaven. They get to see payback for all the times that they were defending you and had to retreat because you decided to get revenge yourself, instead of letting Jesus step in and stomp as hard as he can his heel on Satan’s head just like the bible says (Genesis 3:15). They cannot completely intervene against your disobedience to God’s word and you will reap what you sow from your decision. Jail, physical, mental and spiritual (bad karma / reap what you sow) harm will come to you while Satan gloats and administers the harm with glee because of YOUR wrong decision. God see’s all and gets sad when you give way to a simple thought process of a deceiving demon. You’re shot down in what ever fashion of harm, crying out to God “help me Lord I’m snared!” Meanwhile, the demons are excited, running back to their boss Satan crying out “Hey bossman, oh faithful master of darkness, we really slicked and deceived them big-time in to sin this week. A few drive-by’s, rapes, drug overdose’s, dui’s, ohh, ohh and our revenge-payback department along with the liquid courage staff really brought on quite a few bar brawls, wife and child beatings. Uhh just that right there has got to be worth a few clicks up on the A/C, sir, it's getting a little hot." They are rewarded in hell for your short-comings. Don’t let this be YOU!

Yes, it’s hard not want personal revenge and yes, payback dose feel good to the flesh sometimes, but you never ever get away with it even if you think you do. No sinful act is ever unseen nor goes unpunished with God. God does not punish, but His word shall not go void. You give way to sin. Unremorseful, the devil gets his turn one way or another at any unknown moment of your life. And if you’re a father and husband, you are the foundation of a family. You don’t really want anything to happen to you that leaves your family struggling. So be patient and let heaven rejoice at kicking the devil down into the ground for messing with you. Be obedient and pleasing to God so He can say to Jesus after he pounds Satan’s head in the ground “Good Job son, that’s the way we do it!” Let them all in heaven get their joy. Don’t forget, God had to watch him (Satan) try to take His glory in heaven away for himself and had to witness how his son Jesus got tortured also. Imagine if it was your only begotten child. They get great pleasure in getting sweet revenge for you because you are His child too! That’s why the Lord said “Revenge is mine, says the Lord!” When you let Jesus, his Father, the Holy Spirit and your angels get revenge, you make them very happy and they bless you very happily by restoring to you the best according to the situation. And when you practice this act of withholding your vengeance and let the Lord have His sweet revenge, the devil starts to think twice about messing with you!

When you are wronged by people, try to forgive them. Throw your hands up in the air and say “Father, I can’t handle this. It’s too much for me to bear. The victory is already won, so I leave this issue in your hands in JESUS’ NAME Amen!" From that moment on it will be like:
Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, all righteous angels. This fight is scheduled for twelve holy rounds. The unlimited knockout rule applies.

And in this corner we have, HEY, where’d he go? HEY, HEY, he’s running away! And God said “GET ‘EM SON. Go bruise your heel on his head for messing with My children. Yeah son, you know how we do it!!!"

Do the right thing. Forgive, let go and let God. Revenge will be sweet in his perfect time!
Be Blessed and stay Blessed in JESUS’ MIGHTY NAME !!!
Jesus really does love you and so do I,     Pastor DJ Wright


As well as many of the subjects of God, without the wisdom of God, they can be controversial. This subject of women in the ministry is known to be somewhat male chauvinistic. Just as well, super-powerful women in the ministry can be a blessing to many and have most definitely been to me. (If you read my special thanks home page, I list many !) In the Bible, 1 Corinthians chapter 14:34 says "Let your women keep silent in the churches, for they are not permitted to speak; but they are to be submissive, as the law also says." 35 "And if they want to learn something, let them ask their own husbands at home; for it is shameful for women to speak in church." This chapter and these two verses cause much chauvinism and inner church debates due to the fact that enough study on the subject is not indulged. We will elaborate on the further study of understanding it a little later, but for now, let's elaborate and clarify these two verses, so that men can not belittle God's gift in women and women can understand why God says through Paul for them to keep quiet in the church.

First let's ask the question what if a woman is not married and has no husband to ask? Does she have to be quiet? Does she have to be silent in the church? And who does she inquire questions from? In a church of proper settings, there should be a staff of teachers and educators, which is the third order of proper procedures a church should have. 1 Corithians 12:28 "And God has appointed these in the church: 1st apostles (to harvest people into the kingdom, THE KEY OF THE MEANING "KINGDOM-WORKS" winning souls for God), 2nd prophets (so that old flock and new can be edified with revelation of Gods Holy spirit and His power), and 3rd teachers (so that his people won't parish for lack of knowledge)." Notice that all the other gifts after that in the chapter, the order of the next 5 (miracles, gifts of healings, helps, administrations, varieties of tongues) requirements are not in sequence. They are just the covenant blessings available by grace to the saved, once saved. 1st, 2nd and 3rd are sequenced for a reason. 1st, if they are not saved, they can't possibly be in his covenant worthy of the blessings of the blood of the lamb. 2nd, once saved, if they have not been shown the power of the supernatural through prophecy, it's hard for them to believe the revelation works of the Holy Spirit. And 3rd, if they're not saved and have not the revelation insight and power of the Holy Spirit, The Bible says teaching is in vain because the un-saved WILL NOT understand the mysteries of the Bible, the true word of God, let alone the saved who ARE able and trying to grasp insight by the Holy Spirit. This is why winning souls is the key of Kingdom-works. Seek ye 1st the kingdom of God and all shall be added unto you. ORDER! Order is also the key to unlocking this mystery subject and the answer to above question is: the educators and elders should be asked in bible study classes, if a woman is without husband. Most churches do have bible study,if not they should, it's the 3rd order. (Teachers; the saved must be educated) Men are the foundation of their family and should study the word daily so that the Holy Spirit can give them revelation of any question asked by his wife. If not, women should ask the pastor after a sermon and not blurt out interruptions of objectives, comments, opinions or attention to them acts of agreement. A strong spiritual woman likes to let it be known. It's her nature to do so. A woman is born knowing that men SHOULD BE attracted to a strong spiritual woman. God designed her that way to be an asset to man since the day of Adam and Eve. Men, get strong! Get over your insecurities and build up your woman. Build up yourself so that you are able to answer her questions just as the Bible says. If you don't, YOU give way to the adversary to work on her un-clean nature and you will find her disrespectful and unsubmissive. And then YOUR un-clean nature will show itself and have you belittling your woman, your gift from God. You'll be trying use scripture to manipulate her as your slave allwhile developing a sense of chauvinism and at the same time blaming God, just as Adam did when Eve bit the forbidden fruit. (God, you gave me this woman !!!) Why did Adam blame Eve and God? Because, just as we today have lack of knowledge in understanding ORDER, so did he. Don't feel bad men, Adam was perfect just minutes before God told him it was his fault because he failed to keep his woman in ORDER.

Men, you are the head and foundation of the household and it is your responsibility to keep it in ORDER Gods way, not yours! You are to love and respect your woman just as you love Christ says the Bible. You don't disrespect and cuss God out when you loose it , rather you give him a piece of your mind tactfully and with some degree of respect. If not, you will learn his grace is sufficient but repentance is mandated! Men if you learn to love your wife in this manner, God has created her to become submissive because you communicated with her instead of dictating to her. She is your blessing, not your door-mat, by God's design and you are her strong foundation not wimp, by God's design. Let me give you an example of the proof: #1, Eve gave way to temptation and was lured to the forbidden tree (nothing happened), 2nd, Eve engaged in conversation with the tempting serpent (nothing happened), 3rd, Eve fell short and picked the forbidden fruit (nothing happened), 4th,Eve bit the fruit, found it to be delicious and thought,"can't be that bad, it taste too good." (nothing happened), 5th, Eve thought since it tasted too good to be wrong, let me tempt my man to try it, he'll have to agree (nothing happend), 6th, she, even after he said, I told you not to touch the tree and why did you pick it and eat of it, still dominated, tempted and manipulated him into tasting it (nothing happened), 7th, Adam fell short to the woman's sweet, seductive, persuasive nature. Now keep in mind they were PERFECT, sin-free, including her "woman getting her way nature" by Gods design. She was this way prior to the next event. Adam bit the fruit - - - SUDDENLY !!! The whole world changed to as we know it today and men are still blaming Eve, due to their lack of knowledge of Gods ORDER.

Lets talk about Gods ORDER. In the day of the church of Corinth, woman by nature in the ways mentioned above, would rudely interrupt service and the flow of the anointing when the minister was speaking just as it is done today. Woman, the will of God is for you to be respectful, submissive, non-interrupting nor attention drawing to yourself (Lady-like), while in church service. It is interrupting the flow of the Holy Spirit while He is moving through the minister's speaking anointing ... and yes, that minister can be MAN or WOMAN according to the word of God! Women, God has created mankind in his image and when He speaks of man or says man, he generally speaks of mankind as women and men. And sometimes, that begins a cause of misunderstanding. God knows man's nature and woman's nature and in His Word, He places ORDER for men and for women. Let's keep the Word ORDER in mind, because it's the key to this subject. This may begin to sound chauvinistic, but truly I tell you, it is not. It's the Word of God and you are welcome to debate it with him, it's His Word. But I encourage you to read it to further your understanding. When Jesus spoke anywhere in the Bible about any subject talking to us man and woman, he mostly said "he", but not always. In John 3-16 Jesus said "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." He said "whoever!" That means all sinners, drunks, murderers, pimps, prostitutes, gays, drug addicts, stealers, male or female! 2 verses later Verse 18, he said "He who believes in Him, is not condemned; But he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God." Now does that apply to only men since Jesus has said he 3 times? NO!! Jesus is speaking in terms of God's ORDER out of the foundation of man predicating that Adam came first and woman came out of man. Watch this, all 12 disciples were men. All who were chosen to do Gods work that had any life threatening task as leaders were men. Just the same, it is believed that the 72 additional disciples were all men but there is no evidence of that. It is said in early days that it was custom for men to preach and that it is not a role for woman to play and that they have their own place. Well, that may be so that woman at the time before Jesus ascended to the thrown were not commissioned to preach, but so many did. So, so many did. As a matter of fact every woman that was healed, touched, blessed or had family, blessed, ministered and discipled others. The bible speaks of many and Jesus never spoke against it. Even Paul, as powerful of a man as he was and the writer of 13 new testament books speaks of his travel to powerful spirit filled prophets and woman of God so that he may be lifted up by their anointing just to have the strength to maintain his journey and he names many! So since he names many woman who blessed him while on his journey in many chapters and says for woman to keep silent in the church in another, does that mean he was confused? Not at all !! Actually, Paul was thought of as phenomenally brilliant. So why did Paul make the statements that sound so contradicting? Well, Paul had Gods wisdom and understood ORDER. Lets go to 1 Corinthians 11:1 Paul say's "Imitate me just as I also imitate Christ" Verse 2 says "Now I praise you, brethren, that you remember me in all things and keep the traditions just as I delivered them to you." Here Paul is encouraging, saying for us to be as Jesus and keep ORDER. 3rd verse "But I want you to know the head of every man is Christ, the head of woman is man, and the head of Christ is God." Then verse 8 teaches equality, yet order: "For man is not from woman, but woman from man." Verse 9, "Nor was man created for the woman, but woman for man." Verse 11, "Nevertheless, neither is man independent of woman, nor woman independent of man, in the Lord." So according to Paul, they are designed for each other yet equal in spirit. God is not saying one is less than each other in spirit. However, he is stating his order of headship and never ever saying women cannot minister.

When Jesus reappeared after rising, he claims all authority in heaven an earth and commands the disciples to go and make disciples of all the nations (Matt 28:18-20) and to teach all new disciples to obey His commandments. He did not say men only ,as far as ministry goes but He does give some degree of ORDER as far as pastoring goes. Also, note exactly what He said "make desciples." Get them saved 1st and "Teach, 3rd; all new desciples(baby christians) to obey His commandment. ORDER ! Lets start at 1 Timothy 2:5. Let's keep in mind the exact words of the bible. Paul knows the true order of God's wisdom. So he throws in his order of how he runs his church because of how un-properly educated and disorderly the women of Esphesia and Corinth were by blurting out objectives of Jewish customs. 1 Tim 2:5, "For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus." Verse 6, "who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time," Verse 7, "for which I was appointed a preacher and an apostle - I am speaking the truth in Christ and not lying - a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth." Now Paul is saying God has given ME, and I'm not lying, the true ORDER and PARAMETERS to instruct you with and I'm exercising my parameters because these woman are trippin up in here! Verse 8, "I desire therefore that the men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting;" Verse 9 "in like manner also, that the woman adorn themselves in modest apparel, with propriety and moderation, not ... 'seductively'," Verse 10 "but, which is proper for woman professing godliness, with good works". Verse 11, "Let a woman learn silence with all submission." Verse 12, "And I (keyword) do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man, but to be in silence." Why could Paul exercise that desire and yet prior, commended Priscilla for teaching the great preacher Apollos (Acts 18;24-26), bragged on how great Phobe who worked in the church was (Romans 16:1), blessed Mary, Tryphena, Tryphosa and Persis the Lord's workers (Romans 16:6, 12) as were Euodia and Synthyche (Philippians 4:2) and still say " Woman keep silent and I will never permit you to teach?" He knew the PARAMETERS of God allowed woman to teach and to minister because God does not anoint and bless with power those who don't GET IT and WALK IT right, reguardless of HOW WELLor HOW LONG they have QUOTE IT or TALK IT. Humbly soul-search and look in the mirror. Loose denial of where you think you stand in God, repent and ask God in Jesus Name to re-guide your steps and if God says go left and all your efforts have been to YOUR right , go left and multi-task just as you would for that human boss. Dont get jelous of that Super anointed, gifted, obedient, IN ORDER woman or baby Christian thats following Gods orders UN-SELECTIVELY, just as they would a human boss! God knows every hearts worth wheather you think so or not and anionts an blesses accordingly. TIME SERVED AS A CHRISTIAN MEANS VERY LITTLE. Evidence of that is you'll find youth operating in all 9 gifts and veterans still drinking milk crying out God complaining about what they should but dont have! Paul knew that the women as well as men he was teaching were still on a milk diet and not eating meat yet (baby Christians). And also he knew God's ORDER. So he knew denying the right for woman to teach in his church was ok with God because some can't submit to the understanding of His order, which Paul explains in the next 10 verses. Verse 13, "for Adam was formed first, then Eve." Verse 14, "And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived, fell into transgression. Verse 15, "Nevertheless she will be saved in child bearing if they continue in faith, love, and holiness, with self control." Does Paul sound a little chauvinistic ? OH YEAH ! But not at all. Not in the slightest bit. It's the word of God and he understands the order of Gods saying in 1st Corinthians 11:3, " the head of every man is Christ and the head of every woman is man and the head of Christ is God," This part is God, not Paul and that's the order of the creation of life and he knows that God will not, has not ever strayed from this order. God even made the Queen of Sheba bow down and serve Him. And her son who became the 1st King in Sheba, came from the bloodline of Jesse, David and Solomon. Royal blood just so He could not be mocked by any disagreeing with his holy divine order. Paul having the insight of a woman's un-natural nature if deceived by the adversary, caused him to not take any chances. He was chosen to tell of God's order and said he would not lie to us pertaining to the subject. He had confidence about woman not ruling over man, yet if God anoints the woman, then God himself trust her so it's ok. This confidence must have come from the next verse, 1 Timothy 3:1 "This is a faithful saying: If a MAN desires the position of a bishop, he desires a good work." Verse 2, "A bishop then must be blameless (not perfect), the HUSBAND (keyword) of one wife, temperate, sober-minded, of good behavior, hospitable, and able to teach;" Verse 3, "not given to wine, not violent, not greedy for money, but gentle, not quarrelsome, not covetous;" Verse 4, "one who rules HIS own house well, having HIS children in submission with all reverence" Verse 5, "for if a man does not know how to rule his own house, how will he take care of the church of God?" In the eyes of most, this time, HE must mean MALE this time in order to have a wife, HIS own children, HE to rule over his house. If HE can't, how will HE take care of a church. If In your eyes you don't agree, God has His order on marriage, between a man and a woman the Bible says. (Romans 1-27, 1 Corinth 6;9, 1 Corith 7;2-4 Liviticus 18;22) Lets get back to 1 Timothy 3:6 "not a novice, lest being puffed up with pride he fall into the same condemnation as the devil." Verse 7, "Moreover he must have a good testimony among those who are outside, lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil." This is one time that God means male when He says HE! He says the same about the Deacons. Verse 11, "likewise, their wives must be reverent, not slanderers, temperate, faithful in all things." God knows men can fall short into temptation surely, so He has a requirement of them.

God has blessed and trusted so many women since the times of Paul up until today. If you are a woman and feel that God has called you to the ministry, He probably has. He's trusting you to understand order. Nowhere in this Bible does it say that you can't, but it rather encourages all to be ministers. My favorite female minister is Marilyn Hickey. If you notice, she's up there with the big ones. She doesn't call herself a Rev, Pastor, Bishop, or Minister nor was she ever ordained. Just Marilyn Hickey Ministries. Note that her husband who is unknown by most, is the Sr. Pastor of their church. My wife and I have been their partners since 1997. They understand Order very well. That's why God has made her and her daughter Sarah, known on every corner of the planet, as well as great women of the past like Kathrine Kuhlman who just called herself a Evangelist (which translates to a ministering angel). Men have gotten so jealous of women who are anointed more than them. In reality if the women are more anointed, it's because they are more pure, selfless, obedient, heartseekers of the kingdom of God. God Blesses and anoints according to your faith,obedience, walk and Kingdom works ( the soul winning). If you find they already have Jesus, remember order. 2nd; Prophecy to them encouragement, and 3rd educate them with wisdom. Don't even be concerned about others opinions. Most have gotten puffed up and think they have outgrown Gods kingdom order and decide that they will focus on just this gift or that, instead of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd order of the church. As if God has changed his mind or promoted them because they have been on the roster a little while. I promise you the people they pray over in Jesus name and spread their gift to, will get blessed more than them! Meanwhile they are crying to God, what about me? Their puffed-up-ness has blinded them to protocol (order) due to their self-promotion. And if they keep on in denial, at the end of time they will be the ones that Jesus says "Depart from me you workers of iniquity for I do not know you" And I'm absolutly sure some who read this will be saying "Oh that won't be me, Jesus knows I love him and I know where I stand with God ! Maybe, but do you where you stand in His eyes? Research What a worker of Iniquity is and re-evaluate.

Men and woman if you want to be great at ministry and receive great power of God. Follow those who you are seeing get super blessed, do what they are doing (winning souls! Check it out for your self. you will see.) not those who can quote scripture and talk a good talk and you don't see them getting super-blessed. God will bless you somewhat, for any kingdom work even if you select to just pray for or just educate people with a little insight. He has to because he cannot lie" we're blessed for being a blessing." But, those that are truly following The order of the church, you will get sick at how much over-flow you will see in their life. Do as they do, just as you would copy Kolby Bryant if you want to get great basketball skills. Oh and they will get jealous and think your not worthy of your anointing. They're puffed-up-ness has made them forget who does the blessing and who's the author of the anointing and that he knows who's kingdom works are worthy or not reguardless of what they think. In Fact, if they even think that, they obviously think God don't Know what He's doing, and have been blinded to the fact that they have insulted the Master and that he see's what they think. This is the meaning of Verse 6; above" puffed up with pride and fallen into the same condemnation of the devil". and verse 7;" Self promoting themselves above using their good testimony which the bible says he MUST have among the outsiders to win the un-saved, deciding they're above that now and when they stop, it's as the verse says they fall into reproach and the snare of the devil. All while in denial, they cry out to God "what have I done? why me? why bless them and not me? I've been serving you longer. We're up to doing this and that now. We're living, breathing and sleeping on this new thing now God, it's a good thing, why are you not blessing me any more than normal or like you use too, I mean God this bigger than the old days of winning souls. When God moves you to on to other visions, learn to multi-task just like you see all the greats doing, including every name on my special thanks home page. You will never see someone break order constantly and grow in ministry. The greats try to not deny order of the church and really put focus on their pastoral conducts like Titus 5-16 which says the same as 1 Timothy;1;2;3;4;5; 6; 7; or they reap as verse 6&7 concluded. They multi-task all Gods visions while keeping in mind the priority of Gods Kingdom harvest 1st. I have been ministering since 1985. I can't remember not being in church as a child and as most of you know, this web-site since 1995. I have never seen a church grow that was doing the order of the church their way. I have never seen a church not grow that did the order God's way. I have never seen a minister NOT fall after getting puffed up including myself years back late 80's and more than a few on my special thanks home page, yes even some of the greats I know personally have fell. I also have never seen a woman preacher get more blessed after exalting herself to Sr. Pastor or Bishop above men. I have only seen Gods word prove itself true and they stay stagnant,or develop family & congregation problems, and ask God why me , what did I do? and slowly fizzle out until they recognize they are out of order and repent. Regroup and fall back into God's grace again and most come back strong. I have seen too many times ministers too proud to admit they made mistakes, didn't follow God's guidelines for building a church, and were out of order and used every excuse in the book to claim why the ministry didn't grow. Ministers male and female.

If you know your called, try to follow God's GUIDELINE. Yes, It's a challenge, but worth it! Please remember who is the author of your anointing. Please remember to learn order and when your out of order, his grace is but so long and not much will change until you do order as intended. Please remember it's His will be done, not yours just because you have a good idea. In the story of Cain and Able both of them thought hey had a good idea. God only thought one of them were. this could be YOU! Please don't outgrow God! Please don't try to get God to see kingdom works your way! Please don't live in denial. And most of all, please remember that the game of life is the battle of good and evil. Every day you live ,every hour you have, every book you read, every movie you see, every song you hear. We can't even write a story a song or script that's any different, we are not capable it. And what story or movie or song ever ends with evil winning, not one. The game isn't even fair victory is already won! Chucky might come back, but we get him. Freddy Kruger might come back, but we get him. Jason might come back, but we get him! The Evil one may come back, but in Jesus Name you get him. The game of life is. Lucifer got kicked out of heaven for trying to steal Gods glory. The rules are. You and your Fallen Angels for the next 2000 years or so, or until I send my son back, get the option of trying to win as many souls as you can deceive to roast and burn in hell with you eternally, life with out me. Oh, and your new name is Satan. While I , God Almighty, the righteous angels, and the chosen saints will make all efforts to establish and fill my New kingdom, by Winning souls and as many as possible, to accept Jesus as their savior and they will have a perfect life, perfect temperture with me in the new Kingdom, eternally. The clock is ticking. Games over when I decide to sent my son back. If your not helping your God get names on His roster, you are not doing the most significant for the Kingdom of God. If you think something is more important. Then, as it says above in 1 Timothy 6; you're the puffed up novice falling into the same pit as the devil and as 7; says failure to use your testimony for the outsiders has caused you to be snared. Don't be deceived! This why the ones you see winning the most souls are the most blessed. They understand order, even though they have so many other functions going on they have the priority straight! Seek ye 1st the kingdom of God and all will be added.

I pray in Jesus name that this segment has been a blessing to you and that it has helped you understand Gods infinite love, ORDER, PROTOCOL and the wisdom of knowing that God as well as I, Love woman in ministry. I believe most women study deeper and deliver better angles of delivery. Enlightening us in ways with drama, making it easier to understand. Most of all, I pray that you've gained the wisdom of knowing, It's Gods way. All the time! Serve Him with more respect and honor than you have any human boss. Serve him to fill his kingdom 1st. All the other gifts you have, use them all along the way relentlessly. You will be blessed beyond your own understanding all along the rocky road you will travel !

Be blessed always and know that we want to love more than Jesus does, but it's IMPOSSIBLE !! Pastor Dj Wright.
