In light of all that the Lord has led me to write concerning worldly feminism and the great woman of God in His image since 2011,1 as He continues to lead it is time to fully address the out of place elephant in the room of women pastors. It is not as though the Lord has not had me address this issue before. However, it has mostly been brief statements that speak to women taking authority over men in God’s house such as posts during this Covid-19 year starting with the very first in a footnote.2 In this post, the Lord in grace, mercy and at the end of His longsuffering has me make an extended case for guilty women pastors to repent now, or face His at hand severe judgment!
Search the whole Bible from beginning to end to see if there is one instance of God calling a female to serve Him as a priest in the Old Testament or pastor in the New. You will not find even one because the immutable God is consistent with Himself from creation that men are His elect leaders beginning in the home (Genesis 2:7, 18-24, 3:16, 20, 5:1-5)! As the head of his house in the Old Testament, every man answered to God for his leadership and assigned responsibilities which included leading his family in worship and teaching His way (Genesis 8:20; Deuteronomy 6:4-9). When God established Israel’s priesthood He was very specific and direct in His words to Moses.
‘“Now, take Aaron your brother, and his sons with him, from among the children of Israel, that he may minister to Me as priest…,’” (Exodus 28:1, NKJV). Plainly in the foregoing God makes His sovereign choice as to who of tribe, family and gender in Israel would serve Him as priests. Then, the Lord ensures that all understand His election of Aaron and his sons to serve Him as priests is for all time by declaring to Moses: ‘“The priesthood shall be theirs for a perpetual statute. So, you shall consecrate Aaron and his sons,’” (Exodus 29:9b, NKJV). Though women were singers (Nehemiah 7:66-67), none ever led worship nor served as priests or Temple attendants but the sons of Levi.
In the New Testament that fulfills God’s promise of a New Covenant with Israel (Jeremiah 31:31-34), her promised Messiah and King inaugurates it through His shed blood at their rejecting hands. Though not descended from Aaron, Jesus Christ is God’s exalted High Priest because His Priesthood is of a different, eternal spiritual order (Matthew 21:42, 26:26-28; John 19:5-22; Acts 4:8-12; Hebrews 4:14-5:11, 7-10:18). He as God’s great High Priest has made those of us who believe on Him from either mortal gender priests to serve God in the eternal “spiritual house” He has made us to be individually and together as His living Body (Ephesians 2:19-22; 1 Peter 2:4-10, NKJV).3
Yet, as the Lord and His apostles make clear, the spiritual priesthood believers enjoy through faith in Him does not invalidate God’s order of mankind and election of men to lead in the home as well as the local churches during this present mortal age. Indeed, the Lord Jesus had a golden opportunity to demonstrate any change in God’s order and did not when He appointed His twelve apostles that were all men. And later, after His resurrection when the eleven sought His will for one that would replace Judas who betrayed Him and committed suicide, the Lord has them select a man who met the apostolic criteria though, women were there including His own mother (Acts 1:9-26).4
There were no female apostles, pastors, elders, church sponsored ministry leaders or teachers over men in the first century churches or for nearly all of the centuries after until now, except in sin rebuked by Christ (Revelation 2:18-29). Paul--the Lord’s apostle specifically to us Gentiles where aberrations from God’s will from creation would be most prolific (Romans 1:18-32)--gives the reason when He presented and affirmed God’s order of mankind as the Father, Christ, man and woman to the church at Corinth (1 Corinthians 11:2-10)! He and the apostle Peter also affirm God’s will that wives submit to the headship of their husbands (Ephesians 5:22-24; Colossians 3:18; 1 Peter 3:1-6).
Moreover, Paul brought the direct command of Christ to Corinth and all of the churches to adhere to God’s order when the whole church met together which he reiterated to next generation leadership, Timothy, his son in the faith (1 Corinthians 14:33-37; 1 Timothy 2:11-15). To Timothy also he sets forth the perpetual will of Christ as to who is to be considered for the positions of pastor (to include an elder since a pastor was often both) and deacons in the local churches. In laying out their qualifications, the apostle is unequivocal that only men who demonstrate ruling ability at home are to be considered for these positions (1 Timothy 3:1-13). This was no glass ceiling artificially installed by sinful men, but instructions from Christ consistent with God’s order of mankind from creation!
Seeing then, that God has made no change in His order of mankind to be honored and practiced in the churches, the change that has taken place even celebrating professed Christian women taking authority over, teaching and shepherding men as church pastors has come from them and their male supporters.5 This is rank rebellion and a “latter times” display of foretold apostasy originating from “deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons” as “the Spirit expressly” declared to the apostle Paul. For the woman pastor is a total contradiction and repudiation of Scripture and sound doctrine. Such women are out of order in the sight of God no matter how much they claim to have His calling and sanction and according to His Word, are not telling the truth (1 Timothy 4:1-2, NKJV)!6
Therefore, unless the guilty do thoroughly repent and abandon their demonically inspired rebellion and apostasy, the Lord is about to bring on you what He did the false prophets and wicked priests of old who also lied on Him and the promised end of all false teachers (Jeremiah 23:9-40, 28; Ezekiel 13; 2 Peter 2). The Lord will make you an example and omen of what lays ahead for your sister rebel feminists who make no pretense about knowing Him! Again, I exhort you to repent from your rank rebellion pursuing Satan’s dead end path to power and renown.7 Instead, in all humility and submission aspire to become a great woman of God in Christ’s image (Mark 10:35-45)! The risen, living Christ continues His cry among American churches, "Who is on the Lord's side?"
1 My breakout blog posts challenging the satanic deceit of feminism that has infiltrated many churches take up the month of May 2015 as 2011 commentaries refuting four
classic arguments attempting to justify its presence that arise from sinful mortal flesh, not God’s Word. You do well to read these series of posts beginning May 3rd under
the category, The Cause and on May 31, 2015, What Does God’s Word Say?, under the category, Instruction if you have not already before taking to social or any other
media to assail me.
2 See the January 5, 2020 part one post of the two-part, Revelation’s Seven Churches In Time, under the category, Bible Prophecy. While the footnote points up the dis-
obedience of male pastors in allowing women to teach and take authority over men in the Lord’s house, the same is done in the body and a specific call to repentance
made to women pastors in a footnote of the April 19, 2020 post, Does Anybody Repent Anymore?, under the category, Call To Repent.
3 See the August 23, 2020 part one post, The Churches Under Judgment, under the category, Instruction.

6 Because most women are in greater touch with their emotions, it is very easy for evil men (to their chagrin) and demons to manipulate their strongly held and trusted
feelings. However, no matter how strongly you may feel, the Holy Spirit will never lead you to defy and disobey God’s written Word since that would be fighting against
Himself! If Satan is wise enough not to fight against himself, how much more wise is God not to do so (Matthew 12:22-30)? Anyone is self and/or demonically deceived
to believe God would lead them to disobey His Word and in making the Holy Spirit a party to your deceit, in danger of unpardonable blasphemy against Him (Matthew 12:
7 And woe to the men in willful disobedience who have usurped Christ and enabled this rebellion! I especially appeal to my professed Christian black American sisters in
so many churches where their numbers are in the majority and well represented among rebel women pastors to hear the Lord through me on this (Ezekiel 33:1-9; Acts
20:26-27; Revelation 2:21). Repent and voluntarily walk away as those did that escaped the fate of famous rebels Korah, Dathan and Abiram (Numbers 16:20-35). Yeah,
it’s serious like that!
The Word of God is as plainly stated as it can be from Genesis to Revelation about what a man and woman are; their order, roles and responsibilities. It is equally clear there is only one divinely appointed organism on earth from the first century A.D. that God has directly charged to disseminate, live out, model and teach His Word especially to disciples of Jesus Christ: His Church (Matthew 16:13-18, 28:18-20)! However, the many professed Christians and the local churches they assemble in that are guilty have failed to remain true and obedient to God’s Word on man and womanhood as they have a multitude of other doctrines of the biblical faith such as covetousness.
Because of God’s clarity in His Word, there is absolutely no excuse for the rebellion that has taken place among guilty professed Christians and their local assemblies over the last half century in particular that now, oppose the very biblical doctrines in word and deed they are supposed to be upholding and teaching. As a result, without the heartfelt repentance He has been calling for they have brought the Lord’s judgment upon themselves; potently and undeniably displayed during this Coronavirus pestilence. Or don’t you realize that if “the gates of Hades shall not prevail against” His Church, surely, no earthly government can either unless the Lord permitted (Matthew 16:18, NKJV)!1
What kind of Christianity do you have that allows you to compromise with and stand on the same side as the world system led by Satan in rebellion against the Lord; declaring Him to be unrighteous, unjust or unfair in any possible way? It may not be said directly with words, but this is exactly what many professed Christians in their churches are saying when out of emotion in the flesh their attitudes, philosophies, conduct or works of advocacy run contrary to God’s Word and in lockstep with the world. You cannot be with the Lord and against Him at the same time (Matthew 12:30; 1 Corinthians 10:21-22)! As a result, their churches differ little spiritually from the world.
This reality is made all the more apparent when professed Christians assail those such as me for standing on God’s Word as it is written concerning man and womanhood! Having been in this warfare to cast down the demonic stronghold of feminism in the churches that with the world assaults God’s enduring order, role and responsibility assignments of mankind as long as I have, I am no longer shocked that these professed Christians exist. However, I fear for them now, more than ever since the Lord has made His opposition to the world’s and professed Christian rebellion against His will, way and Word in His Coronavirus judgment abundantly evident for those willing to see.
Indeed, the Lord’s call to self-examination and repentance within professing Christianity at this hour is very obvious (2 Corinthians 13:1-6)! As I repeatedly assert, it is of His grace, mercy and nearly exhausted forbearance (Romans 2:4-11). Therefore, know the Lord is able to and will outlast to victory this world of fallen men and angels in the unfolding, intensifying contest of wills He has prophetically foretold (Psalm 2; Isaiah 2:10-22, 14:12-15; Revelation 6:12-17, 19:11-20:3, 7-10)! But we have been called out from under Satan’s rule to the Kingdom and rule of Christ. As He charged the apostle Paul, we are supposed to be living out this reality (John 17:14-16; Acts 26:12-18).
To that end, this Ministry stands with all Christians that will be faithful and obedient to our King! We are ready to come along side of you to serve with instruction, encouragement and the Strong Man Of God Brand Resources the Lord has led us to create. My book, The Strong Man Of God: Back To Basics stands as our foundational print resource followed by the in depth companion work group studies it has generated--The Strong Man Of God Men’s Group Study and The Great Woman Of God Women’s Group Study.2 These print resources are easily integrated into a family, church or other Christian entity’s plan for teaching and equipping new and maturing disciples of Christ. For this reason, we make no apology for the group studies being in depth; requiring a time commitment.
As the Lord Jesus demonstrated with His twelve, making disciples is a process that takes time (John 14:9). Truly, another of the sins of following after the world He would have guilty churches repent from is taking His sheep through a microwave fast discipleship process. If more time was taken teaching and mentoring in the fundamentals of the faith, man and womanhood early in the process, churches would not have to spend so much of it doing this later while counseling Christian disciples struggling with personal and marital issues! Too, if folk do not want to take the time to obey Christ and be taught His Word, then, they do not really want to follow Him (Luke 9:23-26).3 The risen, living Christ continues His cry among American churches, "Who is on the Lord's side?"
1 This being true, though God has permitted the governing authorities to shut down churches during the emergency situation created by the Coronavirus, those authorities
that have done so with anti-Christian bias and enmity in their hearts (God knows) as well as in oppression and unfairness should be warned from the experience of an-
cient Babylon when God used that nation to punish Israel (Isaiah 13:17-22, 47:1-11). For this reason again, churches should not take it into their own hands to resist
their governing authorities on reopening for meetings or aren't the other calamities of 2020 to include the fires in Western States still burning evidence enough the sover-
eign God is at work and in control? Opportunity to make a real Kingdom stand for Jesus is coming soon enough.

3 Membership in a local church is not the end of becoming or the same as signing on with repentance and faith in the Gospel of Christ to be His follower! This deceit has
hurt many a souls that are church members, but not disciples and churches should stop employing it. The guilty will give an account. God’s Kingdom priority is not
warm bodies to fill local church membership rolls and seats, but true disciples that go to Heaven where “the general assembly and church of the firstborn who are regis-
tered” there reside for now (Hebrews 12:18-24, NKJV)!
