I have a brief word of encouragement from the Lord for all of His faithful daughters aspiring to be great women of God in Christ’s image and any other female that will receive it.1 Today’s cry from females that feel victimized and voiceless and demand a voice to be heard (along with all others that feel the same way for whatever reasons), the God of the Bible would have you to know He hears you! Truly, as it is written, “He who planted the ear, shall He not hear? He who formed the eye, shall He not see,” (Psalm 94:9, NKJV)? God hears every voice on earth whether spoken as an inaudible whisper from the heart or loudly shouted in the streets; He hears every single voice!
The response of the Lord is another matter. Indeed, for while He hears every voice, not every voice is calling upon Him. Some who have suffered an injury from living in this sinful, fallen and unfair world believe God is unconcerned and do not call on Him because He did not prevent their injury in the first place. So, they are angry with Him and the world and want someone to feel their pain with their bitterness through the outcry of the heart made visible in self-destruction or shouting upon every platform. Unfortunately, the sinful, fallen world from whence came their injury is limited in what it can and is willing to do to bring forth permanent readdress of evil and healing for its injured.
No such limitations are with the Lord God Almighty of the Bible (Psalm 146)! As it is written, “The Lord is near to all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him in truth,” (Psalm 145:18, NKJV). The Lord’s nearness is not just to hear and comfort, but to take action (sometimes before; at other times in His sovereignty, after the fact). But first, one must call upon Him “in truth”--transparency, true innocence and helplessness.2 If, for example, you are in a place where you should not be in willful disobedience to biblical righteousness, God is under no obligation to keep you from harm or provide perfect justice for your resulting injury. You purposely put yourself in harm’s way.3
Nevertheless, the righteous who fear the Lord are in peril of injury from this world ruled by Satan every day. It is written, “He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him; He also will hear their cry and save them. The Lord preserves all who love Him,” (Psalm 145:19-20a, NKJV). Those who fear the Lord are given the general promise of deliverance from evil and injury including its ultimate form, death, when we call upon Him. But we understand His promise is of a general nature and have already accepted the fact that He for His sovereign ends and glory may allow us to suffer affliction or death at any time and are okay with this because they are temporary--we live to Him forever (Luke 9:23-26, 21:16-19; John 21:18-23; Romans 8:18-39)! For this we shout His praise (Psalm 145:21)!
However, not so the wicked to include full throated victims! For whether you are the perpetrator of evil or victim that refuses to call upon the Lord in truth and for salvation; looking only to make people hear and/or pay for your pain, it is written, “all the wicked He will destroy,” (Psalm 145:20b, NKJV).4 This is His soon coming permanent readdress of evil! Therefore, let those who fear the Lord keep on calling upon Him no matter how dark the night; He hears you. Let all who feel voiceless “Seek the Lord while He may be found, call upon Him while He is near;” abandoning your wicked ways and thinking in all repentance so, He may hear with mercy and forgiveness through the Good News of His Son, Jesus Christ (Isaiah 55:6-7; Luke 24:46-47; Romans 10:11-13, NKJV).

2 You do not really believe the Lord will hear your demand for justice over the silent screams of the unborn being unjustly murdered through abortion you at the same time
are vocally advocating for or carrying out do you?
3 This is not to blame the victim for the wicked deed done to them. However, keeping it real, just as warning signs are posted all over the world to keep people from possi-
ble injurious situations, so, God in His Word! If you ignore His warnings from Scripture for whatever reasons, you must take responsibility for that and the consequences!
Read my November 5, 2017 post, Sex, Power And Ambition, under the category, Biblical Worldview. Heed the warning signs of God and common sense. Speak up at
the time of injury; seek forgiveness from God as warranted and His justice first in which He will help obtain whatever measure of it will come from Him through this world
and His eternal judgment.
4 The bitter victim is destroyed with the unrepentant perpetrator because using any means including deceit in their vehement insistence that those who injured them pay for
it somehow, they demonstrate their lack of trust in God and usurp Him in their actions who says as “it is written, ‘Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,’” (Romans 12:19, NKJV).
As I concluded in an October 2020 post, it is only fitting that females embracing worldly feminism taught by demons in these “latter times” as foretold should be part of the multi-faceted rebellion against God and His Anointed, the Lord Jesus Christ (Psalm 2:1-3; Acts 4:23-28; 1 Timothy 4:1, NKJV).1 Indeed, the rebellion against God in all of its forms is a manifest sign of the world now, being fully in its latter times just before His return as He has led me to assert in many posts from Bible prophecy.2 Worldly feminists in their rebellion against God and His Anointed are focused on undoing His purposeful and perfect design of the order, roles and responsibilities of mankind.
In rebelling against God’s assignment of male authority through the husband-father in His design of family order particularly, feminists seek to overthrow it and re-structure the family after their own design. In their design rooted in their rebel vision of equality, there are impossibly two family heads, no head and an equal sharing of authority or the acceptance of females just as capable to lead--a reality in many homes by deliberate male default to avoid drama or acquiescence in spiritual ignorance and/or weakness. Not only has this rebel vision of family authority impacted marriages, but it has left the children confused especially about their very important relationship with their fathers.
While in His design as the Lord has led me to write in other places, fathers teach the whole family His Word generally and their sons specifically about biblical manhood,3 they also have important teaching as well as leading, providing and protecting responsibilities to their not of age and single daughters at home. Full disclosure here for me in that much of what I am about to write I have learned after my daughters in a blended family became adults. I wish I had exercised the knowledge I did have more wisely in their youth with that which I have gained since. And of course, back then, I completely underestimated the extent to which feminism would consistently undercut my efforts.4
Worldly feminism has purposely set daughters against their fathers as in no other time in the history of mankind! In the short span of the mid-1960’s until now, many females urged through feminism to resist male authority have also been rebelling against their father’s God assigned family headship over them up to the time of marriage (Genesis 2:24; Matthew 19:3-6). Godly fathers exercised authority over and taught daughters to value themselves and their bodies by staying virgins until given to husbands with their permission (Genesis 24:10-51; 1 Corinthians 7:34-38). They also provided for and protected them from lust driven, sex seeking males like me as an unsaved teenager.
The value of a female virgin was such that male family members would kill a man that soiled their sister who as today, were often traumatized (Genesis 34; 2 Samuel 13:1-33). God’s laws to Israel also reflected the female virgin’s value (Exodus 22:16-17). In my book, The Strong Man Of God: Back To Basics, writing about the absence of women as lifelong celibates in the Bible the Lord leads me to present the sad case of Jephthah’s daughter who as a virgin, mourned not that she would die because of her father’s wrongheaded vow, but having kept herself pure, the fact she would not ever know marriage and family (Judges 11:29-40).5 Fathers and daughters valued their purity.6
However, the Women’s Liberation (from God’s order and morality) Movement born of worldly feminism and followed closely by the Sexual Revolution enabled through birth control and abortions changed everything! I am a living witness to and participant in these historical events which seemed like a boon to us males everywhere at the time, but as in so much of what feels good for the moment, the consequential aftermath has not been pleasant at all.7 Fathers that understood something of God’s ancient will for them were thrown aback. Suddenly, professed Christian females who had understood their value as virgins and intended to remain so until marriage were greatly challenged.
Still, in the midst of a world where our daughters are urged to scorn and rebel against us from every quarter, aspiring strong man of God fathers must stand firm in the fact God’s will, way and Word concerning His order, our roles and responsibilities are right! Start as young as you can teaching all your children to understand the realm of your home is different from the world outside because you have chosen to follow Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. Let them know you would like to have them choose to follow Him also, but until then, your home is built on the values and life outlook you have from a biblical worldview that is non-negotiable (Joshua 24:14-15). Be consistent while also being relationally available and providing alternative activities when needed that are “fun.”
Make sure you affirm the value of your daughters as persons of worth and dignity. This does not mean pandering after them as even some Christian father-daughter gurus seem to suggest, but imitate God the perfect Father (Genesis 16; Numbers 12).8 Knowing His will for females to marry and bear children, encourage them to pursue an education and a line of work by which they can sustain themselves on their own until then. Otherwise, if they choose to stay home under your authority to further their education and/or work while waiting for God to bring His man to them, give them adult space, but with the understanding you and all house rules must be honored; a circumspect lifestyle maintained. In all this you work with God to build daughters into excellent wives (Proverbs 31:28-29).

4 No matter what my daughters that lived with me watched in the media or where they went--school, church, friend’s homes etc., what their father taught them at home from
a biblical worldview such as I knew was challenged by the rebel views of feminism among others of this world! I know I am not alone in my experience and this is the reason,
no doubt, the Lord in part has me writing this post to encourage and help a struggling Christian father; his daughter if she will give heed. For as aspiring strong men of God
in the image of Christ we are not to just throw up our hands in exasperation caving into the way the world works in rebellion. But this too, is part of fighting “the good fight of
faith,” (1 Timothy 6:11-16, NKJV)!

Great Woman Of God Women’s Group Study available through the same outlets.
6 I will say it again here. Sons are also to be taught to value their virginity until marriage. Sinful men have historically allowed a wicked double standard I acknowledge and
condemn in Christ.
7 Casual and no fault sex has led to unprecedented promiscuity, millions of out of wed-lock births and abortions (used as birth control after the fact when either unprotected
intercourse or other forms of pregnancy prevention measures failed), unmarried couples living together in large numbers, inconsequential adultery, increased date and
stranger rapes, an out of control porn industry with related addiction, sex trafficking, sexual abuse and perversion, widespread and incurable sexually transmitted diseases
as well as a long trail of broken and ruined lives.
8 God never compromises righteousness while also being gracious and merciful. Having then, given the warning about pandering after daughters leading inevitably to a father
compromising God’s standards of righteousness for the sake of being loving and accepting, I defer to the counsel of more qualified men such as Dr. James Dobson,
Dr. Kevin Leman and Dr. Willie Richardson among other faithful Christians as experts to help. Under no circumstances do I encourage following the advice of anyone
about raising daughters that is accommodating to the rebel values of feminism as though it will perpetually stand as the defining global norm. Truly, even “Before the coming
of the great and dreadful day of the Lord” near at hand, the Lord is sending the prophet Elijah to restore fathers and children in Israel as well as the willing beyond (Mala-
chi 4, NKJV)!
