Greetings to my godly, holy sisters and to those who might be seeking truth.
As we were walking to a so called 'Christian' event for men, I was appreciating the peace and beauty of God's creation thinking that those of Christ should be of peace, joy, truth, love, goodness, righteousness (and so many more I could be here all day listing them). I made this video to show you the contrast of what we encounter out here, even when dealing with so called 'christians' and it's a great example of what godly women are not.
I posted this (below) yesterday on our van dwelling journal but wanted to put it here also...
Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel; But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.
1 Peter 3:3-4
I shared that verse because I was pondering it this morning as we were standing out at a wicked, ungodly men's conference (you can find that HERE). They had a bunch of worldly looking women (yes all these people claim to be of Christ) yelling and screaming and welcoming the men. Totally opposite of 1 Peter 3, meek and quiet. More like this...
And, behold, there met him a woman with the attire of an harlot, and subtil of heart. (She is loud and stubborn; her feet abide not in her house: Now is she without, now in the streets, and lieth in wait at every corner.)
*They had the attire of a harlot.
* They were subtil of heart based on their fruits (how they act and dress).
* They were loud- all the yelling and screaming was from them.
* They were stubborn when I told some they needed to repent.
* They were all over the streets, lying in wait for the men to walk by and welcome them into the den of iniquity. When a man would stop to talk, they swooped over and swept in to take them away.
I found this interesting...
They kept saying 'We're glad you're here, we're glad you're here' to the men coming in. I thought of another time we heard that phrase and it was while we were on the streets in Bozeman, MT and a crazy, demonic man was jerking, twitching and dancing saying 'We're glad you're here, we're glad you're here.'
What a great teaching moment for us all to ponder how we act at all times. I'm not saying that we can't ever be loud because I have to lift my voice in the streets to be heard when I'm sharing the gospel with women and calling them out of the world, and there are times a louder voice is necessary but screaming, jumping up and down, laughing uncontrollably and being overly friendly with men....are not characteristics of godly women.
Since it was a men's conference and all claiming to be of Christ, there was very little speaking for me, except to share gospel cards and refer them to the website or brother Tupos and a few comments to the women but they weren't interested so I didn't cast precious pearls to be trampled on. Instead, I was able to portray the example of a meek and quiet, godly woman as we see in 1 Peter 3 and also the characteristics in Titus 2.
The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed. Titus 2:3-5
I didn't see any of this going on...
* Behavior as becometh holiness
* Good things
* Be - Good
* That the word of God be not blasphemed.
But I saw a lot of this going on (definition of blasphemed)...
The actions of women claiming to be of Christ will depict the God they serve won't they? Those women depicted a god of disorder, chaos, wickedness, lasciviousness, feminism etc... not a God of all the characteristics that the scriptures speak of
While I walked among them with brother Tupos, holding my sign and offering gospel cards, many gave me long stares, looking up and down at my headcovering and clothing. I hope there were some that saw the chaotic actions of the other women vs the truth of God's word in an obedient woman. I hope it brought conviction to some in their homes, seeing the contrast of light and dark, good and evil, chaste and lascivious, quiet and loud...
Let that help us remember to always be obedient to the Word, let it dwell richly within us that we may become just as it says.
Hold fast sister saints and keep pressing on as He is worthy!
