The LORD GOD showed me the following four mathematical equations, and then HE began to speak to me about loyalty.
After speaking to me about the above equations, the LORD took me to the following accounts in the Bible –
Listen You women
Many of us love our husbands dearly. There is nothing we would not do for them. We will even go out of our way to support our husbands, oftentimes, unnecessarily sacrificing our hopes, dreams, and ambitions to support those of our husbands. Now, there is nothing wrong with this if this is what a woman chooses to do as long as she is not forced to do so and it does not violate any of GOD’s principles and the calling HE has placed on her life.
But then GOD voices HIS concerns to me concerning how too many of HIS daughters are making senseless, that is mindless, sacrifices to please the whims and will of their husbands. As a result, many women today, are aligning themselves with the spirit of Korah that resides in their husbands because they refuse to stand up to the senseless, prideful, and ungodly behaviors of their husbands.
We all need to be mindful that the Lord our God is coming not just to bring peace on the earth, but when Christ comes, His coming will cause a division among men. Matthew 10:34-37 says it this way.
When GOD had shown me the vision of the above mathematical formulas, HE then said this to me. “Some wives are loyal to their husbands to a fault. Some children are loyal to their parents to a fault. Congregations are loyal to their pastors to a fault.” We are so loyal to these individuals to the point that we choose to abandon our loyalty to GOD for the approval and acceptance of men or our family members.
So the LORD speaks this warning to all, especially women and wives in the congregation of GOD.
Submission does not mean mindlessly follow
There is no doubt that GOD has placed man (a woman’s husband) as head of the household. Because this is scriptural, women should be faithful and submit to the direction of their husbands. After all, Sarah set the ideal example for us as women by calling her husband Abraham lord. But there is nowhere in the scripture where it shows that Sarah followed Abraham mindlessly. She greatly respected her husband and followed his direction, but she did not do this mindlessly. It was easy for Sarah to submit to her husband’s headship because he made decisions for his family that did not set them up for destruction like the men we read about at the beginning of this discussion. He made decisions that were in alignment with GOD’s principles, that did not harm others, and based on how GOD was leading him.
We as wives can learn from the decisions of these women – those who were loyal to GOD and stood against their husbands when their decisions did not align with GOD, saved themselves and those connected to them. We clearly see when women remain silent when their husbands are in error or wrong in their actions created much chaos and destruction for them and their household. Yes, all women should be loyal to their husbands – that’s what your marriage vows require – through good or bad, til death separates you two. However, there is no scriptural principle that will support such a stance when your husband is at fault or leading your family or the congregation of GOD down a dangerous path like Korah. In such cases, women should not be loyal to their husbands to a fault. Nor should children be loyal to their parents to a fault. NOR SHOULD THE CONGREGATION OF GOD BE LOYAL TO THEIR PASTORS TO A FAULT.
WORD OF CORRECTION
A prophetic WORD OF CORRECTION is not a WORD to harm or place fear in GOD’s people. Here is an opportunity for GOD’s people, especially HIS leaders to apply the principle GOD stated to HIS prophet Jeremiah at Jeremiah 1:10. God reached out, touched my mouth, and said, “Look! I’ve just put my words in your mouth—hand-delivered! See what I’ve done? I’ve given you a job to do among nations and governments—a red-letter day! Your job is to pull up and tear down, take apart and demolish, And then start over, building and planting.”
