As we draw the month of February to a close we must visit the God-ordained order of the male leadership in culture. We celebrated Valentine’s Day and all acknowledge the man is to honor his heart’s love with some form of gift. This serves a reminder throughout the other 364 days of the place man is to occupy.
Our nation is plagued by feminism from the home, to politics, to the pulpit. In our text God reveals the cause of the coming judgment upon Israel. The cause of the coming judgment was the displacement of women from their God-ordained position. They had moved out from under the authority of their husband. This was one of the results of the fall.
Genesis 3:16 – Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.
As a continual reminder of the consequence of sin in the Garden, God ordained the man would rule over the woman. The reverse of God’s plan has become a bane on our society. And here is the reason why. Look in Isaiah 3:25 and notice the summary of the impact of the woman stepping outside the God-ordained order of society. The men would be conquered in conflict.
Dominating women produce weak men and weak men produce weak cultures.
Today, as you go about your day, be alert to occupying your God-ordained position and take up your associated duties and wear them as a badge of honor. At a time when our nation needs strong biblical leadership feminism has produced a generation of weak men. Let’s begin today to recapture what made this nation great…a biblically guided marriage and culture. Today, men, assume your duties to lead, and women, reassert your position of a God-ordained roll in culture.
