What God wants is a population boom in the body of Christ, and in order to have that, He has to bring women back to their proper function. He’s got to bring them back to what Jesus gave them. He’s got to bring them back to what the early Church recognized that they were capable of doing– while under persecution, martyred along side their husbands, martyred along side other workers, and doing the same work as men: teaching, preaching, and exhorting–becoming bishopesses and becoming prophetesses, becoming apostles, becoming sent ones, becoming deaconesses, and doing the work of the ministry.
Through the teaching on Apostolic Women you will see that without a woman we wouldn’t have the book of Romans right now! What more proof do you need than that? The bottom line is the enemy is a liar! The early Church turned the world upside down and moved in signs and wonders and miracles. Why? They moved this way because the women were allowed to function the way God intended! Now this is not a feminist statement! When you are dealing with the most powerful momentum of the Church you’ve got to look at that time period and wonder “why was it the most powerful?” Everyone in the Church world has got to admit that it was the most powerful time in Church history!
The early Church turned the entire world upside down. Why? Because they didn’t take women out! When you take women out of the equation you take the body of Christ and make it half of what it’s supposed to be. I understand that women are alright with just serving… but that is the pre-requisite for ministry.
At the end of the day, if we want to bring a population boom to the body of Christ then we have to know the end from the beginning; and the beginning was Adam and Eve, not Adam and Adam. God said be fruitful and multiply. You cannot multiply without women. The multiplication factor is coming back to the Church now! The declaration has been made, the freedom has been released, and the body of Christ is going to rise up to what she is supposed to be! Male and female alike in the body of Christ.
Women don’t want to usurp a man, but for 1600 years when the church began to wane in its power–even though the Holy Ghost never left the planet, even though the Word of God never left the planet, even though in the eastern Churches they had the Aramaic scriptures all the way back to the beginning–the Church’s momentum was effected.
In the early Church, in that community of believers, there was equal respect both to men and women. A lot of men and women were team ministry– husbands and wives together! The woman didn’t immediately qualify to be in the episcopate, or be in a priestly level or rank, to teach and do miracles, simply because they got married to the Bishop. They were ordained the same way that Paul and Barnabas were when the Holy Ghost said “Separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them.” They were laid hands upon by the early Apostles– Peter, James, John, Andrew, and so on. They laid hands on women and spoke over them in the name of the Father the Son and the Holy Ghost. They ordained them and sent them!
When you become an Apostolic Woman and the body of Christ gets made whole and we stop worrying about denominations and we let the lines between this and that, and this and that, and that and this disappear, and we get a real head on our shoulders with real knowledge, and we function the way we are supposed to function, then God is going to be able to give us the Glory covering the earth as the waters cover the sea. That’s the only way it’s going to happen.
So, why Apostolic Women? Because you needed to be told! The word needed to get out world-wide …and I will not stop preaching it!
