message title: The Revelation of the Bible Concerning Male and Female in God's Economy

we need to be careful not to form any exclusive groups in the church life. this is to build up something in a natural way, but not for the building up of the church. we do need to be grouped and built up together, but not in a natural way, rather, for the Lord's interest, for the church life. 

I. "And God created man in His image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them"; "He who created them from the beginning made them male and female" - Gen 1:27; Matt 19:4b

nowadays, in the society, especially in the young generation, there is the trend of so called "gender neutrality", claiming that man and woman are the same; that there is no difference between male and female. there is a town in USA, where, in all the documents, they are getting rid of "he" and "she", such gender pronouns, and replace with neutral pronouns. but in the Bible, the word of Godd, it is cleary stated that God created both male and female, and there is a distinction between male and female. otherwise, we are not faithful to the word of God. 

God created Adam. but for Eve, God built Eve, with the rib of Adam, in a different way coompared with how He created Adam. technically, Adam was created, and Eve was built. but generally speaking, God created both male and female. not only God's creation of men and women is different, but God's purpose for men and women is also different. if we remove or cast off this divine concept, we are opening ourselves to the evil one. the world today is corrupted and polluted by the evil satanic system, regarding the gender, regarding social relationships, disguised with the mask of "modern advancing". this is altogether against God. as sisters, engaged in such a spiritual warfare, we need to pray, and we need to obey the word of God. bu we need the revelation, and we should not be involved in the movement or counter movement. some people abuse the word of God for personal interest, for selfish reason. when we read the Bible, we need to be careful not to get into the swirl. the best thing is for us to be all lifted out of this. we are not in the realm of agreement or disagreement. the truth has always been under attact. today, the attack on the truth of God is far stronger than ever before.  we need to wake up to see and realise what is going on today in the society. our children are innocent and they just believe whatever is taught in the school, like "you can have two dads or two mums". if we don't speak to them, they will just go along with the tide of the crooked age. 

God created man in a wonderfu manner for a wonderful purpose. God has created woman wonderfully for a wonderful purpose. it is beautiful. it is wonderful, and it is glorious. 

II. "You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus... There cannot be male and female; for you are all one in Christ" - Gal. 3:26-28

Submission and Obedience 

sisters need to submit. then what if the male is not even a brother in the Lord? what should the wives do??? this is not uncommon, that believers marry unbelievers, or believers not in the church life. first, we have to distinguish between submission and obedience. when we mean submission, primarily it means an attitude, a kind of bearing. the women should be submissive to the men, which means the attitude, coming from a deeper belief. we believe in the word of God, that God has ordained things in the universe, male and female, etc. so we obey the Scriptures, and we like to live the Scriptures, not just hearing the word, but also living the word. but most of the time, we just cannot submit. so we need the Lord, who Himself is the true submissive one, who has the genuine virtue of submission. we need Christ to submit. on the other hand, obedience has more to do with action. in 1 Corinthians chapter 7, Paul talks about the marriage life. we need to learn to walk in the spirit and live Christ. 

we do not need to live in the way of the current evil tide. it is easy to be tempted by the enemy, and to adopt the force of the majority of the society, which is going against God and  we want to choose God. and we choose to obey His word. 

according to life, all the believers are males, including sisters, are sons of God and brothers of Christ; however, according to love, as to the relationship between Christ and us, we all are females. we are living sons of the living God, whereas we are the loving Bride of our dear Bridgeroom.
