Male and Female:
The Pattern of God and His Creation
Give great attention to and careful consideration of these opening paragraphs, particularly the following paragraph.
When it comes to the bigger picture of Yahweh God, the matter of male and female and its consequences is not just one of, but undoubtedly the most important and wholly impacting truth there is. It is evident that, as set forth at the outset of mankind in Genesis 1, the male/female aspect is as big a picture as one can get relative to the nature and government of God, His works, and the impact upon creation. This higher, and even highest, view is most important, for by it one gains the most understanding and insight possible.
Let us consider for a moment a simple example of the necessity of seeing the bigger picture. Let’s say we are all floating down a river on melting islands of ice, and our objective, so as to preserve our lives, is to maintain our place on the best possible slab of ice. Our entire focus and sense of greatest achievement, responsibility, and security would be to select the best ice. Some might even decide that the best way to secure long-term safety would be to bind several slabs of ice into one unit, reducing ice melt and increasing fulfillment and longevity.
Given the existing circumstances, all focus would be on the immediate state of the ice flowing down the river. However, if one could see the bigger picture, they would see that a waterfall is ahead, and soon everyone on the ice will risk perishing, and all they had worked on was about to be taken from them. If one could see that bigger picture, then the efforts to maintain the ice slabs would not only become totally irrelevant, but even a deadly threat. Therefore, the focus would then be on how to navigate over the ice, and even into the cold water if necessary, in order to get to the shore. The point is, if we do not see the bigger picture, then what we are doing will be in vain, and we waste our efforts, and possibly our lives. Thus, the object should be to raise one’s sight above the immediate, and try to see the biggest picture possible and have that understanding directing our purpose in life.
I spend a reasonable portion of time watching and trying to understand what is taking place on the national and world scene—both politically and economically. These are indeed VERY troubling times! However, as you will see, the bigger picture is that the time of the nations must come to an end; and it seems evident that its end is at hand. What is the higher work? It is the heavenly.
There are three basic levels in God’s creation: the heavens, the nations, and the individual. As you will see in this writing, there is only one solution for all the problems that are destroying us today, problems that are rooted all the way back in the Garden of Eden. It is very important for you to see and to understand that what took place in the original Garden, is precisely what is taking place today, before our very eyes. BUT, men do not have the eyes to see what is happening. They are all on melting islands of ice, flowing down the river of time. They DO NOT see the bigger picture, so they are about to be destroyed; in fact, they are destroying themselves. As you will see, there is only one solution to today’s vast problems, and that is that time must be cut short and Immanuel return to set up His kingdom. But even so, Immanuel cannot come unless Elijah prepares His way. That too is our hope and our focus at this time.
It is said that brevity is the soul of wit, and the brevity simply stated here is : male and female is at the very crux of God and man! This truth affects every level of the works of Yahweh God—at the kingdom level, at the nations level, and at the individual level. This writing seeks to reveal and explain this simple yet profound and highly impacting truth, bringing understanding to its wholly effectual nature—for both good and evil. In it we find the power of God to effect ultimate good; but also, we find the usurping nature of the created to do evil. For this very reason, proving its truth, what you will read here flies into the face of society today, and even existing religion, and will be rejected by many as misogynistic and antiquated. But the fact is, aberrant society that is once again seduced by the serpent, Satan, and calls good evil and evil good, by this response fully proves this resounding truth.
Wisdom, and seed testimonies
To begin this important examination, we ask: What is wisdom? Wisdom is seeing and understanding things from God’s perspective. The trinity of the mind of God confirms this: beginning with wisdom, then comes understanding, and the conclusion is true knowledge. Thus it is written:
Yahweh by wisdom founded the earth, by understanding He established the heavens. By His knowledge the deeps were broken up and the skies drip with dew [Proverbs 3:19-20].
By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established; and by knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches [Proverbs 24:3-4].
As you will see, it is quite significant that wisdom is spoken of as being female. In Proverbs 1:20 we read: “Wisdom shouts in the street, she lifts her voice in the square ….” And in Proverbs 8:11 we read: “For wisdom is better than jewels; and all desirable things cannot compare with her.” In the New Testament, Yahshua said: “Yet wisdom is vindicated by her deeds” (Matthew 11:19). Other like verses could be cited; but why is it that wisdom is identified as being female? Previously, we have noted that wisdom is the Bride who labors with Immanuel in the creation of the new heavens and new earth (Proverbs 8:22-31). But what else should we learn from this? What is it about the Bride that makes it so fitting to identify her with wisdom, how does this relate to the ways of Yahweh God, and what character is it about a woman that causes her to be identified with wisdom?
The answers to these questions are most important to understand, especially today; but let us first add another important truth here. In Ecclesiastes 1:9, we read a passage that is often quoted in Remnant Bride writings: “That which has been is that which will be, and that which has been done is that which will be done. So there is nothing new under the sun.” Ecclesiastes 3:15 equally states: “That which is has been already and that which will be has already been, for God seeks what has passed by.” And if this statement is not already clear enough concerning this aspect of Yahweh God, in Isaiah 46:9-10 we read: “Remember the former things long past, for I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is no one like Me, declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things which have not been done, saying, ‘My purpose will be established, and I will accomplish all My good pleasure.’ ” Thus we see, and it is important to understand, that Yahweh sets forth or sows seed testimonies at the beginning that later sprout into the true fulfillment—the “that which will be.”
As examples of this, we have seen that when Abraham married Keturah and had six sons, this was a seed of what would take place 3,726 years later in America with the Curse of 1920. In like manner, Solomon—who was called God’s son, and would build Yahweh’s house and His kingdom, and his throne would endure forever—was in fact a seed testimony of the Son of God who builds the kingdom of God in the Millennial Reign. Likewise, the Passover lamb, the two loaves of leavened bread, each one of the feasts, the tabernacle in the wilderness, the temples, the Garden of Eden, and on and on, were all seed testimonies of that which would be, Yahweh declaring the end from the beginning.
Seeing this important truth, what can we learn about events and actions that are taking place today, even “the end” as stated in Isaiah? To give us the insight and understanding we need, let us consider one of the most important seed testimonies there is; and it is certainly the most important seed testimony when it comes to man. This will be the focus of our examination here.
Is the man the head?
In the creation account in the opening chapters of Genesis, we find multiple seed testimonies that have determined the course and outcome of all creation. In those chapters are laid out both the divine order and the fate of mankind and the kingdom. And most importantly, regarding man, the very first testimony set forth at the outset of his creation is the order of the male and the female. In Genesis 1, in the opening statement regarding day six when God created man, verse 27 sets forth the seemingly simple but unquestionably profoundly determining and revealing statement:
God created the man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
Correctly translated in the Young’s Literal Translation, the Geneva Bible, and other translations, this verse accurately begins with the identification of “the man” as specifically the one who was created in God’s image. This is confirmed in Genesis 9:6 where once again we read: "for in the image of God He made the man." It is most important to realize and understand that the woman was not and is not made in God’s image. Next, in this opening determining verse regarding the creation of man, we read that male and female identities are set forth. But, there is the clear distinction that the man is the very image of God, thereupon occupying and obligating His governmental place, the place of governance on this earth. God is masculine, and the man solely stands in that place on earth to represent and carry out His governmental order. Thus, most importantly, we see here the replication of God’s order on the earth—the man, and not the woman, is His image!
This fact and order is continually confirmed throughout the Bible in specific instruction and examples, including in the priests, the prophets, the apostles, and is specifically repeated in 1 Corinthians 11:3 and 7-9:
But I want you to understand that Christ is the head of every man, and the man is the head of a woman, and God is the head of Christ. … For a man ought not to have his head covered, since he is the image and glory of God; but the woman is the glory of man. For man does not originate from woman, but woman from man; for indeed man was not created for the woman's sake, but woman for the man's sake.
That which was stated in Genesis 1:27—“God created the man in His own image”—is repeated and expanded upon in 1 Corinthians 11:3—“for a man … is the image and glory of God; but the woman is the glory of man.” You will notice that in contrast to the man, who is the glory of God, the woman is the glory of man, not of God. Of course throughout God’s creation He attests to this truth in that the males possess the glory. The lion, the betta, the peacock, the stag, on and on Yahweh attests that the male is His glory and image. Why this order and what does it tell us about Yahweh God’s governmental design? What wisdom do we find here, seeing and understanding things from God’s perspective?
“Male and female He created them”
Sometime around the year 2000, a man stated simply to me this truth regarding the male and the female, and it has proven to be profoundly true. He simply said that the distinction of the male and the female in the ways and works of Yahweh God was critical to note and to understand. I can remember the moment when he spoke this, where he and I were standing, and the brevity of his comment. But it stuck, igniting something inside of me. Its brevity did not diminish its lingering and even escalating impact on my understanding and growing realization. Like a small seed crystal in a saturated mineral solution, it continued to grow and grow and grow until more and more it took on defining and revealing shape and color and substance. More and more its defining meaning and significance became clear. Today, it is evident that the impact of this decisive order of Yahweh is indeed entirely encompassing and wholly determining, to the extent that it even sets forth the effectual difference between heaven and earth.
The crux of this truth, as we have thus far seen set forth in the Scriptures, is that the male is the image of God, and the female is the glory of the male. Additionally, we find that in type and representation, in the larger picture the male equals God, and the female equals the created. Even as the woman came out of the man (“woman” means “taken out of man” [Genesis 2:23]), so the created comes out of God. Adding even further truth to this, 1 Corinthians 11:9 clearly states: “For man does not originate from woman, but woman from man; for indeed man was not created for the woman's sake, but woman for the man's sake.” Therefore, if what we have been seeing and saying here is true, then in this statement one should be able to replace the natural with the heavenly and it remain equally relevant. Doing so we read: “For God does not originate from creation, but creation from God; for indeed God was not created for the creation's sake, but creation for God's sake.” So, yes, this too is equally true.
Do you understand what is being seen here? Do you see the parallel of these? As God is the Creator and is masculine, and creation is the feminine and is to submit to and serve God, so it is imperative by the very government of God that regarding man this order is duplicated: the man, who is the image and glory of God, is the masculine head, and the woman is to submit to and serve the man.

Despite what wholly corrupted society believes, and despite today’s fallacious interpretation of the Declaration of Independence that “all men are created equal,” by the design of this selfsame Creator men and women are not equal! Affirming this truth, neither Thomas Jefferson nor any of America’s founders gave equal rights to women, including the one to whom they gave diligent studies and heeded—Sir William Blackstone.
Jefferson wrote that women should not be brought into governance, so as to “prevent depravation of morals and ambiguity of issue.” He knew this well from his time in France, where he noted regarding their women’s intrusions into governance: “[Few Americans] can possibly understand the desperate state which things are reduced in this country from the omnipotence of an influence which, fortunately for the happiness of the sex itself, does not endeavor to extend itself in our country beyond the domestic line.” He contrasted American women by lauding them as they “who have the good sense to value domestic happiness above all other. ... Our good ladies, I trust, have been too wise to wrinkle their foreheads with politics.” Compared with the women of France, he said: “It is a comparison of Amazons to Angels.” Today, Jefferson would find that the Amazons have taken over our country.
Man today has this truly insane idea that he is smarter than his Creator and does not examine what Yahweh God has set forth, as did this nation’s founding fathers. Thus, man proves himself to be an easily deceived feminized fool, regarding himself to be wiser than God. He is as Paul declared:
For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man …. Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them [Romans 1:21-22 and 24].
This is exactly what man fatally does today regarding the Eveonian practice of the “equality” of women, as well as a host of other aberrant practices. America should be ashamed of the level of depravity to which it has stooped, in so many areas. Our forefathers would be appalled. (Read The Curse of 1920.)
In another like contrast, we know that, obviously, God is not deceived, as He possesses all understanding and knowledge, knowing the end from the beginning. Likewise, He is all powerful. However, in contrast, man, the created, is easily deceived by Satan, the world, and by his own flesh, and is clearly a weak vessel. Thus, here again we find specifically stated the same contrast between the man and the woman. In 1 Timothy 2:14 we read: “And it was not Adam who was deceived, but the woman being deceived, fell into transgression.” And 1 Peter 3:7 states: “You husbands in the same way, live with your wives in an understanding way, as with someone weaker, since she is a woman.” Additionally, we read in 1 Timothy 2:12: “But I do not allow a woman to teach or exercise the authority of a man, but to remain quiet.” Again, equally we find that as it is with God and creation, so it is with the man and the woman.
It is amazing in today’s fallen state in society, and even in the church, that many people will readily agree with the higher requirement that the created must submit to the Creator; yet, these same people will resist and even reject the equal requirement that the woman must submit to the man in the same manner. If they can see the necessity of the higher obligation, then they should, and are even obligated to, readily and gladly embrace the natural requirement on this earth. A woman needs to realize that when she violates the earthly realm, she infers and agrees with the same for the higher realm—that man should not obey God. Thus, the reality is that because women will not submit to the man but demand to be equal to him, taking his responsibilities and standing in his place, it is a testimony to the true relationship that creation has with the Creator—we reject Him as well and want to be equal with Him. Therefore, the rebellion of women against men is a symptom of creation’s rebellion against God.
The latter truth just stated is clearly and profoundly evidenced in the “that which has been” seed testimony that took place in the Garden of Eden. We find there not only the male/female testimony of Adam and Eve, but the same testimony regarding the two trees planted in the middle of the Garden. The tree of the knowledge of good and evil was masculine, and the tree of life was feminine. How do we know this? First, when Adam and Eve ate from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, Yahweh declared, “Behold, the man has become like one of Us, knowing good and evil” (Genesis 3:22). Thus, when they ate from that tree, they became like the Godhead, which is clearly masculine. In contrast, “Eve” means “life,” and in Genesis 3:20 she is called “the mother of all the living.”
While masculine Adam was parallel to the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, feminine Eve was parallel to the tree of life. Therefore, the sin that Eve in fact committed, and is the same iniquity that women have today, and is the very problem creation has, is that she wanted to be like the man, she desired to be in the place of the man. This is clearly evidenced in Satan’s temptation, as he offered her: “For God knows that in the day you eat from it [the tree of the knowledge of good and evil] your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God [masculine], knowing good and evil” (Genesis 3:5). Because of this iniquity and sin of the woman, Yahweh cursed her: “I will greatly multiply your pain in childbirth, in pain you will bring forth children; yet your desire will be for the place of your husband, and he will rule over you” (Genesis 3:16). In other words, her role as the tree of life would be fulfilled with pain—it will cost her. But also, because she sought to be like the man, she was cursed with this iniquity, and the man would rule over her.
In like regard, creation has the same Eveonian female iniquity to be like God, to take His place, or as we read in Matthew 24:15, it is “the abomination of desolation which was spoken of through Daniel the prophet,” where man stands “in the holy place (let the reader understand).” This is man standing in the place of God, seeking to do the very same thing Eve sought to do in the attesting Garden. (Read The Great Tribulation, page 1.)
Today, in their own way, women are doing the very thing that Yahshua spoke of: they are taking the kingdom by force (Matthew 11:12). They are taking the place of the man, who is the image and glory of God and occupies the same comparative place of the kingdom of heaven. Today, the kingdom suffers violence by the hands of women, the very hands that used to care for the children and the home and their husbands. The kingdom suffers violence as women abandon their place and enter into politics, into judicial affairs, into voting, into employment, into news outlets, into education, into the man’s clothing, into sports, into headship in the home, into the military, into enforcement, into the pulpit, and the list goes on. Anywhere a man’s authority is required by the order of Yahweh God, women have sought that place so as to effect the Eveonian act of being equal to the man.
Yahshua—the best example for a woman
In like comparison, the usurpation of the woman over the man would be the same as if Yahshua had tried to rule when He first came as the created who is from below, in contrast to His coming as Immanuel who wholly comes from above. Though He will come again in the masculine role of ruling and reigning, His coming two-thousand years ago was in a female role, as a servant, even as He declared: “the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many” (Matthew 20:28). This just comparison of Yahshua with the woman is clearly set forth in 1 Peter 2:21-25 and 3:1-2. First we read the testimony concerning Him:
For you have been called for this purpose [of being submissive to authority over us], since Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example for you to follow in His steps, Who committed no sin, nor was any deceit found in His mouth; and while being reviled, He did not revile in return; while suffering, He uttered no threats, but kept entrusting Himself to Him who judges righteously; and He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds you were healed. For you were continually straying like sheep, but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Guardian of your souls [1 Peter 2:21-25].
To whom does Peter then contrast this female position relative to Yahshua’s submissiveness? Appropriately, to the woman, as we now read in the verses immediately following, and begin with the obviously intended comparison, “In the same way”:
In the same way [as Yahshua], you wives, be submissive to your own husbands so that even if any of them are disobedient to the word, they may be won without a word by the behavior of their wives, as they observe your chaste and respectful behavior.
Again, the usurpation of the woman over the man is the same as if Yahshua had tried to rule when He came the first time and did not lay down His life for others. Again, ladies, this is your highest example to follow.
Heaven and earth
At this point, we need to progress to a further unfolding of this seamless and replicable truth. It was stated earlier that this decisive male/female order of Yahweh God is entirely encompassing and wholly determining, to the extent that it even sets forth the effectual difference between heaven and earth. While God is male and creation is female, and in like regard and requirements the man and the woman follow the same order, it is equally true that heaven itself is male, and the earth is female. The profound significance of this will be seen.
Given the governmental distinctions between the male and the female, the consequences, as well as both the legal and relational obligations of this gender difference, are entirely fitting, obligatory, and even predictable. To help understand this, let us examine the differences between Yahshua’s coming in the female role, and His coming in the male role.
We have already read in 1 Peter 2:21-25 and 1 Timothy 2:12 the obligation of the female role. It is one of submission to authority, yieldedness, not teaching, and not exercising the authority that is given to the man. These are the very qualities Yahshua evidenced when He was here on this earth as a mere man. One might object that He did teach; but the reality is, regarding all that He knew as God, He restrained dramatically what He taught. In fact, most of His governmental teachings were in parables. Otherwise, His teachings were moreso in the order of the teachings of an older woman, encouraging right behavior (Titus 3:2-5). And never did He assume authority over men, even to the extent that He refused to address the smallest of conflicts, such as that between two brothers and the family inheritance: “Man, who appointed Me a judge or arbitrator over you?” (Luke 12:13-14).
In clear and revealing contrast, when Yahshua comes again in His male role as Immanuel, God with us, He will rule and reign on the earth, ruling the nations with a rod of iron, and “on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written, ‘King of kings, and Lord of lords’ ” (Revelation 12:5 and 19:15-16). Likewise, while He would not so much as pass judgment on a mere inheritance issue in His female role, in His male role He will judge every man according to his deeds (Mathew 16:27). Thus, the contrast between His coming as Yahshua in the female role as a servant, and even as the lamb of God, and His coming as Immanuel in the male role as king and judge, is not only outstanding, but MOST revealing and confirming as we seek to gain understanding concerning the ways and works of Yahweh.
This remarkable difference additionally explains why some things can be effected in heaven, that are not possible, or even legal, on earth. We have seen that what the male can and must perform, cannot be performed by the female. Yahshua said you must be born from above (John 3:3 and 7). Only then can one enter into a body that transcends the natural. But He also stated that one must be born of (1) water and (2) the Spirit (John 3:5). As addressed in Resurrection and Judgment, page 5, born of water is being born of a woman, in the natural female realm. But that birth leads to corruption and death. The body we must have in order to effect the complete will of God is from heaven. Thus, even as women cannot effect certain things, so the earthly body we possess from them has grave limitations as well. Instead, we must be born from above; we must be born from heaven, from the masculine.
These two gender births are confirmed in Yahshua’s two births as well. First, He was born of a woman, Mary. However, as addressed in Kissing Lips and Attesting Glory, page 4 and page 5, in His coming as Immanuel to rule and reign, He will be “born” of a man, the Elijah. Even as female Mary prepared the way for His coming as Yahshua, so the male Elijah prepares the way for His coming as Immanuel. Thus, it is quite consistent and confirming that we too are first born of a woman, born of water; but we must also, like Immanuel, be born of a man, born of the Spirit.
Even the kingdom of heaven that earthly man has possessed for two thousand years, because of its earthly nature, is gravely limited and leads to corruption. Psalm 115:16 declares, “The heavens are the heavens of Yahweh, but the earth He has given to the sons of men.” What is the physical shape of the earth? Of course it is round. What is the physical shape of the human egg that is fertilized by the serpent sperm and is our beginning? It is round. What is the shape of the nucleus in the cells that form our body? It too is round. Also, the eye is round. It too is first mentioned in the Garden seed testimony: “ ‘For God knows that in the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.’ When the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was desirable to make one wise, she took from its fruit and ate …” (Genesis 3:5-6). Here again, it was the round eye of the woman that was the doorway to sin, failure, and death. Furthermore, always remember that when you look at things from the standpoint of the natural, you are seeing them through round eyes.
But, what is the physical shape of the kingdom of heaven? In Revelation 21:2-3, the holy city, new Jerusalem, comes “down out of heaven from God,” and a loud voice declares, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is among men, and He will dwell among them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself will be among them.” So what is the shape of the heavenly? Is it round as well? Of course not! Rather, it is the same shape as the Holy of Holies, which was ten cubits square, and was where Yahweh’s presence did abide. Verse 16 then describes that heavenly tabernacle: “The city is laid out as a square, and its length is as great as the width; and he measured the city with the rod, fifteen hundred miles; its length and width and height are equal.” Thus we see, that which comes out of heaven is not round like the earth, the egg, the nucleus, or the eye; but in distinct contrast, it is a square!
Do you understand what we are seeing here? Once again in this God-ordained order, it is heaven in the male position that possesses authority and responsibility, not the female earth. Therefore, we here on female round earth are totally dependent upon the masculine heavenly cube coming to the earth. This absolute necessity and our fate in its delay is attested to in Song of Songs 5:2-8. Read it carefully. Yahshua came two thousand years ago and extended His hand through the opening of the door and called to the Bride; but when they opened the door, He was gone. He did not come in and bring the square kingdom that we have to have. So what happened to the Bride, what has happened to the kingdom? They had to go out into the darkness of the night, and there they were beaten and their covering has been taken from them. This has been the fate of the kingdom for two thousand years. And let it also be said here, this is the difficulty and cost of truly seeking and pursuing the presence of Immanuel.
Again, we here on female earth are totally dependent upon the masculine heavenly coming to the earth. From a personal standpoint, this is why (1) I seek to get God to come to this earth, even as is the Elijah purpose, and (2) anything less than His coming is only more of the round-earth work. Truly, the only hope is the unmistakable arrival of the cube to this ball. Anything less is just more ball work.
A telling sign of man’s/Satan’s corruptibility
We know that heaven is identified with the square. Why would Yahweh choose a square? What are the qualities of a square? For one, as the structure evidenced as that which comes down from heaven, a square can have a cornerstone. This, of course, is Yahshua, who is often called the chief cornerstone which the builders rejected. Additionally, a square can have a strong foundation. In contrast, even though the earth is said to have a foundation, a ball would have a very weak foundation. Also, there can be no cornerstone from a ball.
Furthermore, even as the chief cornerstone has been rejected, fitting to the corrupt nature of man and Satan, the historically valued meaning in society of the word “square” has been rejected and even morphed such that good is once again turned to evil. In the book, The Curse of 1920, we note that one of the prongs of that curse was cursed jazz, rock, and rap music. This is the curse that was set forth in the seed testimony when Abraham married Keturah and had six sons. As foretold by those sons, that music has brought rebellion, destruction, and death ever since its beginnings in New Orleans, and later in Chicago. It is therefore not surprising, and more importantly revealing, that the “square” was morphed beginning in that music.
In Webster’s 1828 Dictionary, before the Curse of 1920, one of the definitions of “square” was: “That does equal justice; exact; fair; honest; as square dealing.” Thus, an honest and frank man whom you could trust was called a square shooter. If you experienced a just and equitable exchange in a purchase, it was called a square deal. And if you sat down to eat and enjoyed a nourishing and filling meal, it was a square meal; and if you were in a good boarding house, you got three square meals a day. Even in the early 1900s, President Teddy Roosevelt’s domestic program was called The Square Deal.
What does the female created do with the male “square” kingdom with which it seeks to be equal? Most revealingly, they do the same thing they did with the word “square”—they alter and corrupt it, once again turning good into evil!
Today, Merriam-Webster's Online Dictionary, 11th Edition, has changed their definition. It is no longer good, but a square is “a person who is conventional or conservative in taste or way of life.” That is a polite definition; for more accurately, a square is defined as “A person who is regarded as dull, rigidly conventional, and out of touch with current trends.”
If you want to know the purpose of jazz, rock, and rap, just look at what they did with the square, the identity of the kingdom that comes out of heaven—they morphed it from being a compliment for the good, honest, and just, to being an insult as one who held onto the past and would not accept their wholly corrupting ways and departure from good.
From jazz, the Curse of 1920 spread. The hipsters of the 1940s, the beatniks of the 1950s, the hippies of the 1960s, and the yippies of the 1970s, all rejected the values of the past and disdained anyone who held to those truths as being square. They too propagated the morphed so that good became evil, and their lives followed the same course. But the corruption seen here is only at the individual and nations levels. While these results are devastating and the Curse must be reversed, even more tragic is how man has morphed the kingdom where evil is equally called good, and good is called evil, or wrong, or is just ignored. Equally, the square takes on the form of the round. Frankly, in today’s society, being viewed as a square is a rewarding compliment, in more ways than one.
“Every careless word”
For your gain, let us here take this opportunity to briefly address just a few more examples of words that are either morphed from good to evil, or from evil to supposed “good.” Before doing so, one is wise to remember and heed the warning of Yahshua:
“But I tell you that every careless word that people speak, they shall give an accounting for it in the day of judgment. For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned” [Matthew 12:36-37].
An example of calling “evil” good is the same period’s corruption of the word “cool.” Before the Curse of 1920, this word meant something subdued. Once again looking back to Webster’s 1828 Dictionary, we find that “cool” meant: “Not ardent or zealous; not angry; not fond; not excited by passion of any kind; indifferent; as a cool friend; a cool temper; a cool lover.” Also: “To moderate excitement of temper; to allay, as passion of any kind; to calm, as anger; to abate, as love; to moderate, as desire, zeal or ardor; to render indifferent.” But again coming to us from the cursed ‘60s, what has cool morphed to become? It is: “An adjective referring to something that is very good, stylish, or otherwise positive.” Instead of being reserved, it has come to mean the opposite—something impressive or popular, especially in worldly trend. Thus, anyone who seeks to be circumspect in both their speech and in not following in the ways of the cursed world, will not participate in the corruption of this word.
Recently I was talking with a Bride brother about homosexuals, and at one point I called them gays. He then told me that he was surprised I used that word, and he was exactly right. I had not fully considered that with their corruption of “gay,” I should not follow them in that corruption. It was not that long ago that “gay” meant joyous and lively, happy. Again from Webster’s 1828 Dictionary, gay is defined as: “Merry; airy; jovial; sportive; frolicksome. It denotes more life and animation than cheerful.” In the 1920s when people were missing the life they had left behind with its new prosperity, yet still possessing its familial and religious strength, they nostalgically called that joyous period the Gay Nineties (the 1890s). But sadly and remarkably revealing regarding the time we live in today, unless one knew otherwise, that term would cause them to think of homosexuality.
Why is homosexuality so rampant and threatening today? It is a product of the Curse of 1920 when women are becoming equal to men. The word “homosexual” means “one and the same sex.” This is precisely the governance we have today when women take the place of the man. Therefore, we have a homosexual—one-and-the-same-sex—government, and homosexuals as well. When will people wake up to see that when they violate the law of the male being the head, and the woman being under and absorbed into the effects of his covering, the outcome is and has become tragic. It is as written in Isaiah 3:11-12:
Woe to the wicked! It will go badly with him, for what he deserves will be done to him. O My people! Their oppressors are children, and women rule over them. O My people! Those who guide you lead you astray and confuse the direction of your paths.
The reality is that homosexuality is a product of the Eveonian sin when the woman seeks to be equal to the man. Again, it is identical to creation seeking to be equal to God. Therefore, refuse to morph good words into evil and never call a homosexual gay.
There are many words that should never be used because they are either morphed from good to evil or evil to “good,” or simply because they make one a part of the clamor of the world. And in closing this portion, I ask your respect for the word “awesome.” What is a threesome? It is a sum of three persons. So, what is awesome? It is the sum of all awe! So, are the world’s pleasures the sum of all awe? Should we use this word carelessly, as is often the case? Do not Yahshua’s words apply here when He said, “every careless word that people speak, they shall give an accounting for it in the day of judgment”?
Is clothing the sum of all awe? Is a car the sum of all awe? Is a song the sum of all awe? Is a person the sum of all awe? Who is truly the sum of all awe? Yahweh alone is the sum of all awe, and He and His works are the only things on earth that are worthy of the use of this magnificent word. Just as these other words we have examined tell a revealing story, one that brings much needed truth to light, here as well we see what man really does desire. It is not Yahweh God, who is the only sum of all awe, but the things of this world. Never use awesome to describe anything other than Yahweh and His works!
Let us be sober and talk circumspectly, heeding Yahshua’s warning:
“But I tell you that every careless word that people speak, they shall give an accounting for it in the day of judgment. For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”
Eye to eye with Eve
Returning to this matter of the male and the female, in particular as it relates to the man and the woman, let me ask you a question. If you could be translated back in time, all the way back to the Garden of Eden, and could be standing there as Eve was talking to the serpent, Satan, what an incredible and decisive moment you would be transported into! Imagine yourself standing there as she took the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil in her hand, and began raising it to her mouth. What would be your thoughts at that time? Seeing now all the pain, death, and destruction that would come to both the earth and mankind from that act, and the curses that came as a result of it, what would be your reaction? Would you not speak out and tell her what the horrendous consequences would be and try to get her to see the wrong? Would you not try to keep her from eating from that fruit? Of course you would.
Some might be inclined to say that they would not interfere, for the outcome was inevitable. But if you had that opportunity to intervene, would you not take it? Would you not warn her? If your answer is no, then you should consider the warning in Ezekiel 3:18-19. Here we read: “When I say to the wicked, ‘You will surely die’ [which is what Yahweh told Adam concerning that tree], and you do not warn him or speak out to warn the wicked from his wicked way that he may live, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at your hand. Yet if you have warned the wicked and he does not turn from his wickedness or from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you have delivered yourself.”
When we have an opportunity to reveal truth and to warn about the err of sin, not only is it our responsibility, but if we do not do so we risk being held accountable for their sin. So, what then is worse—to directly sin, or to not warn others concerning that sin?
Today, the Garden of Eden is being repeated; we are eye to eye with Eve, and the wholly destructive effects of that fateful act by the woman are reverberating throughout all mankind. Today, women are eating from the masculine tree of the knowledge of good and evil, seeking to be equal to the man, and it is just as much our responsibility to warn them of this as it would be if we were standing in the original Garden of Eden with Eve. What women do, they will do; but, our responsibility is to speak out regarding this wrong.
One last question here: If we want God to come to this earth and govern it and not man, then why do we allow women to govern today? It is hypocritical to want the masculine God to come here and rule, when we support the feminine, women, being involved in governance. We are failing to practice the very thing for which we supposedly long.
As has been noted, there are three levels in the governance of Yahweh God and His creation: individual, the nations, and heaven. Let us examine all three, beginning with the individual.
At the smallest level, every individual has within them the male/female conflict wherein the feminine soul—our mind, will, and emotions—wants to rule over the masculine spirit that communes with God. Thus, there is a Garden of Eden in each one of us. Our soul wants to take the place of God and know good and evil. But at every level, it is the masculine that has the authority to rule, and the soul must submit to our regenerated spirit.
But, let us take this one step further, now regarding the relationship of the man and the woman. Because of the Curse of 1920, this is most important to understand today. Here again we have the same required governmental order. When I married my wife, she took great delight in signing her name, “Mrs. Gary D. Naler.” Why would a woman do this? Because by the design and order of God, her identity is to be absorbed into her husband. (This is the same as the soul conforming to the spirit, the spiritual man.) This practice had been longstanding with women—until the Curse of 1920 gained ever-greater influence and control. Today, marriage is considered by many to be obsolete, and in a growing number of cases the last name becomes a clear testimony of this Curse. Instead of the woman being absorbed into the identity of her husband, both last names are now often used, attesting to the Eveonian practice of equality. This is most revealing, and people do not realize how thoroughly this violates the government of God.
To get a better understanding regarding this government and its wellspring source, let us examine the higher realm of heaven where righteous government and order originates. Yahshua is going to have a bride, and what will be her identity? Will it be an identity of equality with Yahshua? Hardly so. We have nothing to offer Him in that regard that is to His gain. In fact, when He did come to earth and took on our identity, it cost Him everything, requiring His suffering and death. On the other hand, what do we have to gain by being wholly absorbed into Him and His identity? We have EVERYTHING to gain!
Feminism looks at women in the role of bringing competition with men; but, Yahweh God’s order is not competition with men but completion in men. A woman is to find completion and fulfillment in her role as a wife and mother. Not competition, but completion.
Even at the lower level of individuals, including marriage, this divine government whereby the female is absorbed into the male applies, and is in fact essential. One cannot live in God’s world and violate His government without both short-term and long-term ill consequences. Providing important understanding concerning our departure from His government, let us look back to the 1760s and see what was the guiding substance of both British and Colonial law, which extensively influenced the formation of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.
In 1765-1769, an English judge named Sir William Blackstone published his Commentaries on the Laws of England. It was so widely received by the Colonists that nearly as many copies of it were sold in America as in England. A domestic edition resulted in fifteen hundred sets being ordered by lawyers, judges, public officers, and interested laymen throughout the Colonies.
As commonly held by society at that time, Blackstone believed that the law of nature, which is dictated by God Himself, is binding upon all humans just as surely as gravity affects all of nature. In fact, Blackstone, the framers of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, the courts, and essentially all of society at that time, based their beliefs, practices, and laws upon the Scriptures. The following is from Volume 1 (1765), page 442, of Blackstone’s work, and is clearly founded on 1 Corinthians 11.
By marriage, the husband and wife are one person in law: that is, the very being or legal existence of the woman is suspended during the marriage, or at least is incorporated and consolidated into that of the husband; under whose wing, protection, and cover, she performs every thing; and is therefore called in our law-French a feme-covert, foemina viro co-operta [Latin: woman covered by the husband]; is said to be covert-baron, or under the protection and influence of her husband, her baron, or lord; and her condition during her marriage is called her coverture. Upon this principle, of a union of person in husband and wife, depend almost all the legal rights, duties, and disabilities, that either of them acquire by the marriage. I speak not at present of the rights of property, but of such as are merely personal. For this reason, a man cannot grant anything to his wife, or enter into covenant with her: for the grant would be to suppose her separate existence; and to covenant with her, would be only to covenant with himself: and therefore it is also generally true, that all compacts made between husband and wife, when single, are voided by the intermarriage. A woman indeed may be attorney for her husband; for that implies no separation from, but is rather a representation of, her lord. And a husband may also bequeath any thing to his wife by will; for that cannot take effect till the coverture is determined by his death.
In 1 Corinthians 11, we read Yahweh’s clear replicable governmental order regarding headship: that Yahweh is the head of Yahshua, Yahshua is the head of every man, and the man is the head of the woman. In this governmental passage, it is equally laid out that the man is the “covering,” or as Blackstone stated, the “coverture,” of his wife. Adding 1 Peter 3:5-6, one equally sees that her husband is her “covering lord,” or covert-baron. Again, Blackstone’s term “coverture,” or “covering,” and his logic came directly from the Scriptures. This was the wise basis upon which our nation was founded and formed.
But, the Eveonian seeds of feminism were already in our society at that time as well, evidenced by Abigail Adams. You can read about this from the excerpt “John Adams and Women’s Rights” from The Curse of 1920. This iniquity of the woman spread with the passage of time, especially through the likes of Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony, until women received national rights to vote in 1920—one of the prongs of the Curse of 1920. From there, that Eveonian curse of feminism spread like a costly and destructive and deadly plague. The fate of the Garden at the individual and even nations level has come upon the world. And, in that man has been given the kingdom of heaven, the church, even that heavenly level has been corrupted with Eveonian feminism.
Thus we see that according to the pattern of heaven, the woman is to be absorbed into the identity of her husband. As Yahshua taught the disciples to pray, so is to be our hope and our purpose: “Our Father who is in heaven, hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven” (Matthew 6:9-10). If we are going to be absorbed into the identity and purpose and inheritance of Immanuel, then women should return to practicing the same government and treat their husband in the same manner. This is equally the message of Ephesians 5:22: “Wives, be subject to your own husbands, as to the Lord.”
Having examined the individual level, it is obvious that there is an overlap here into the nations level. Individual Eveonian women sought the sin of equality with men; and as a result, nations began changing their laws so as to accommodate this departure from what is right.
Since the time when Adam and Eve were sent out of the Garden, the nations have possessed the rights to govern the world. This was first evidenced in the Scriptures with Nimrod in the land of Shinar and the great city of Babylon. Historically, he is otherwise known as Hammurabi, or “Ham the Great,” who is best known for the Code of Hammurabi. Nimrod was the grandson of Ham. As the initiating seed testimony of the quest and fate of all men—nations and otherwise—under him the Babylonians built the “tower with its top into the heavens,” and they sought to make a name for themselves (Genesis 11:4). Of course Yahweh God confused their language and scattered them over the face of the earth.
What then do we find in this initiating nations testimony? Every nation, beginning with Babylon, has an obligation to bring forth the fruits of the kingdom. Can the nations do so? No, not any more than the earth can bring forth fruit of the ground without thorns and thistles (Genesis 3:18). The nations can no more bring forth the fruits of the kingdom, than Nimrod’s tower that ascended into the heavens was acceptable to Yahweh God. Again, it was a foreshadowing type of what would follow, and other nations throughout the Scriptures attested to the same purpose and failure.
Furthermore, in All’s Well That Ends Well, page 2, we note that Jerusalem, Sodom, Egypt, Nineveh, and Babylon are all identified as types of the corrupted kingdom of heaven. On the other hand, the Medo-Persian empire that conquered Babylon occupied a type of the two Remnant. And these representations are not limited to the nations of yore, for all creation throughout all time yearns in its own ways for the revelation of the kingdom (Romans 8:19-22). Clearly, the United States is in the same place as Christianity. While the church is the corrupted kingdom of heaven at the heavenly level, America is the kingdom of heaven at the nations level. “America” literally means “heavenly kingdom.” And like Christianity, it is now a cursed and even morally corrupting work. In fact, it is the Christian nations of the world that are now effecting the world’s corruption.
Another remarkably clear effort of a nation seeking to bring forth the fruits of the kingdom, but failing, was Germany. The home of Martin Luther and a type of Christianity as well, in World War II it literally sought to bring forth the Millennial Reign. Under the leadership of Adolph Hitler, Germany sought to establish the Third Reich, meaning the Third Kingdom. What do these three kingdoms speak to? Hitler was attempting to bring in the third-part Millennial Reign, but by the nations level. Christianity has had two one-thousand-year periods, and Hitler literally attempted to bring about the third one-thousand-year period. In the minds of Germans, the Holy Roman Empire of the German people from 800/962 to 1806 was the First Reich. Next, the German Empire from 1871 to 1918 was the Second Reich. The Third Reich was the empire the Nazis sought to set up, and Hitler predicted that it would continue for a thousand years. Also evidencing the attempt at the Millennial Reign, Hitler religiously pursued a campaign of purity and perfection in every area: ethnically, socially, artistically, architecturally, and so on. Once again, a nation clearly sought to bring forth the fruits of the kingdom, and failed!
This is equally the efforts of the United Nations. When Immanuel returns, He will unite all nations under one kingdom—the kingdom of heaven. The United Nations attempts the same; and as with Germany, their results are disastrous! If we had eyes to see all things clearly, we would understand how nations throughout their six thousand years have all played their part in one way or another in attempting to bring forth the fruits of the kingdom. And, they have ALL failed!
What you are getting ready to read now is a closer and more revealing examination of women seeking to take the place of the man in governance, including a remarkable fulfillment. Before addressing this though, let it be stated that it is fully acknowledge that some women do indeed seek to do and fulfill what is right in not taking the place of the man. There are some women who are daughters of Sarah and acknowledge their husband as their rightful head. For these women both heaven and earth can greatly rejoice! But, the grave necessity of this writing is to examine and address the rampant curse of feminism wherein the vast majority of women today, to varying degrees and in various ways, do not do what is right. Instead, like Eve, most blindly think that what they are doing is good, while there is a core of women who are truly matriarchal in their evil intents. Yet as a repeat of Eve, they are all in fact deceived and equally causing the suffering, failure, and death of mankind.
When women turn and seek the place of the man, they abandon their place and fulfillment as a woman. As a result, a vacuum is created that only they can fill, and an added weight is placed upon the male role. Society is like a row boat on a sea with women on one side and men on the other, each fulfilling their distinct parts, and as a result the boat goes forward on course. But when women abandon their place and seek to be like or among the men, the vessel begins to change course or even goes in circles. Eventually, as more and more women move to the place of the man, the boat will capsize and sink. Thus, our success as a society is dependant upon men being men, and women being women—both fulfilling their unique and obligated roles and functions. Again, when women abandon their role, it creates an absence, a vacuum, that leads to want and loss.
Relative to this, another most revealing failure on the part of the nations is their present attempt to bring forth the Bride who will rule and reign with Yahshua for a thousand years. How are they trying to do this?
There is a very important truth to understand concerning the male/female differences in regard to authority. We have seen already that the male has the rights to rule, but not the female. Legally, a male work has the governmental right to effect many things that are forbidden for the female. One of the best examples of this is, of course, the outcome of Yahshua coming the first time in His female role as an earth man, versus His coming again as Immanuel in His male role as a heaven man. The first time He came, it was in a female role as a servant, laying down His life and submitting to the authority of the nations. But in His male role, Immanuel will have the authority He previously lacked before and will now rule as King of kings. Again, the male work possesses authority that the female work entirely lacks, and is even rebellious to seek.
We have noted that the earth is in fact female and heaven is male. This means then that heaven, or the heavenly, can accomplish things that the earthly cannot accomplish. This is quite obvious, wholly impacting, and frankly should compel any woman regarding the place she must seek to take. No matter what a woman thinks she might be accomplishing when abandoning her place, it is in fact a shortfall and usurping failure. Looking at the bigger picture, what then is it that women today are in truth attempting to do that is completely illegal for them, and has been and will be an utter failure? They want to rule and reign, and seek to bring forth the fruits of the kingdom. Remember, the nations are required to bring forth those fruits, as well as individuals, and certainly the church; but, they have sought to do so in the wrong way.
As the type of the tree of life, women are required to bring forth that tree’s fruit. How have they failed? In the most basic way possible. In addition to abandoning the home, abandoning moral values, and abandoning serving their husbands, most significantly they have abandoned motherhood. We read in 1 Timothy 2:15: “But women will be saved through the bearing of children if they continue in faith and love and sanctity with self-restraint.” Instead, women have eaten from the masculine tree of the knowledge of good and evil and abandoned their role as the tree of life.
Thereby, even as Nimrod failed, even as the United Nations fails, even as Eve failed, and most significantly, even as Germany failed to provide a people who could rule in a Millennial Reign, so women today are completely failing by their pursuit of the place of the man—their vain attempt to provide the Bride through the nations level.
But also, most importantly, we have seen that Nimrod’s tower, as well as Hitler’s attempted Third Reich, and many other like testimonies, each speak of that which must be fulfilled from heaven. Today, the woman’s pursuit of the place of the man equally attests to that which must be provided by heaven—that a female work will indeed receive the right to rule and reign. Remember, that which is impossible and illegal by the earth, is possible and legal by heaven. Women in rebelliousness actually seek that which must come about, and in their personal and nations efforts seek to fulfill. But, even as Yahshua said, they are (unknowingly) seeking to take the kingdom by force, and thus the kingdom has suffered violence by them (Matthew 11:12). Even so, what they unknowingly attest to is the female Remnant Bride, who will rule and reign with and under the authority of Immanuel for a thousand years. This is in fact the fulfillment of the destructive efforts of the women’s rights movement, which, again, seeks to take the kingdom by force. What they vainly pursue in error, heaven will provide in truth through the Bride. Victory!
As we have seen in the writing, Resurrection and Judgment, the fulfilling Bride is the first resurrection, ascends alive into heaven in these earthly bodies, is born from above so as to be regenerated into their heavenly bodies, will then return with Immanuel, and being from heaven will now have the legal authority to rule and reign on the earth. The key in all of this is heaven. That which has been unlawful for the female created and nations works, will now be lawful and effectual for the Bride work that, like Immanuel, will be from masculine heaven. Again, heaven is male and has the authority to effect things that are not possible by the created female earth. As with Nebuchadnezzar, man must come to “recognize that it is Heaven that rules” (Daniel 4:26).
This is a most important matter in our consideration, and in life. Up to now we have seen evidenced the failure of the created, both men and women, but especially women. Likewise, from Babylon to Germany to nations today, we have seen evidenced the continual failure of the nations. None of these, including two thousand years of the church, have brought forth the required fruits of the kingdom. All have fallen short, and have even corrupted the kingdom. There is in fact only one solution, and that is for the highest level of the three we have examined—heaven—to come to this earth and effect what man has failed to produce since the Garden of Eden. Heaven is our only hope!
But, what must be done beforehand? Without question, an Elijah work must prepare the way for the heavenly; it must prepare the way for Immanuel. And even this requires the heavenly, the Helper, the latter rain of the Holy Spirit—to convict the world concerning sin, righteousness, and judgment (John 16:7-8), and make it possible for the Bride to be made ready. In this regard, let us look at a revealing and affirming Bible-contradiction testimony concerning this work of the Holy Spirit and the Bride.
As addressed in The Key To Their Understanding, page 5, the books of Samuel and Kings speak of Christianity, while Chronicles speaks of the Bride. With this in mind, in 2 Samuel 23, David’s three mighty men are addressed. In verses 11-12, the third mighty man, Shammah, took his stand in a field full of lentils and defeated the Philistines. But in contrast, in the distinctly parallel passage in 1 Chronicles 11:10-14, Shammah is not even mentioned. Even though the phrase “the three mighty men” was used in verse 12, he is not mentioned as one of the three. Furthermore, here Eleazar, the second mighty man, in like testimony took his stand in a field as well; but, it was a barley field, and there he defeated the Philistines. Thus, in these distinctly parallel accounts we find two different men; but amazingly, both took their stands in a field. And, these fields were different crops. Two men, one common act, but different crops. Obviously, Yahweh is telling us something here. So what are we seeing?
Lentils are what Esau lost his birthright over (Genesis 25:29-34). Clearly, first-born Esau looks to Christianity that loses its rights to the kingdom, while Jacob is the kingdom-receiving Bride. Thus, lentils attest to being identified with Christianity. This is further evidenced in that lentils are exclusively the subject in this account in Christianity 2 Samuel; and affirmingly, barley is exclusively the subject in Bride 1 Chronicles. Barley always speaks of the Bride. Furthermore, in Bride 1 Chronicles 11, Shammah is not even mentioned among the three mighty men. He is distinctly absent! And finally, and this is specifically why this passage is brought up, “Shammah” means “astonishment,” and “Eleazar” means “God is helper.” Thus, the helper is identified with the Bride.
This is the same identification addressed in the a blog posting titled “The Helper.” In Genesis 2:18 we read: “It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him.” But as addressed in that writing, the helper spoken of here is not the woman per se. Verses 19-20 continue:
Out of the ground Yahweh God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the sky, and brought them to the man to see what he would call them; and whatever the man called a living creature, that was its name. The man gave names to all the cattle, and to the birds of the sky, and to every beast of the field, but for Adam there was not found a helper suitable for him.
Though Yahweh then made the woman, she is never called the helper. Though she is a type of the true helper, the woman per se is not the fulfillment. The helper we need and must have is the Helper, the Holy Spirit that Yahshua said He would send:
“I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that it may be with you into the [Millennial] age, that is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not see it or know it, but you know it because it abides with you and will be in you” [John 14:16-17].
“When the Helper comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, that is the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify about Me, and you will testify also, because you have been with Me from the beginning” [John 15:26-27].
“But I tell you the truth, it is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him to you. And He, when He comes, will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment” [John 16:7-8].
“I have many more things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take of Mine and will disclose it to you” [John 16:12-14].
Thus the helper we must have is the Holy Spirit poured out in the Millennial Reign, even as it is written, “that it may be with you into the [Millennial] age.” This is indeed the “helper suitable for” us, the second Remnant.
Based on Genesis 2 then, we see that the Helper is in a female role. Furthermore, when you consider the testimony of Adam, who was put to sleep and a bride was taken out of him, the helper is a bride to the Body of Christ. But this is in fact most fitting. We, the Bride, must have the latter rain of the Spirit, the first Remnant having received the former rain of the Spirit. Why does the Bride receive these two outpourings of the Spirit? Because it is the spirit of the Bride herself, the one who will be a helper to her husband, the Body of Christ. It is thus most fitting that the Spirit of truth is given to the Bride. As it is written, it is not good for the Body of Christ to be alone.
Therefore, the Bride and the Holy Spirit are equally in the role as the helper/Helper. They have the same purpose. This union of the Spirit and the Bride, especially in light of the Remnant being the Elijah work, is wonderfully confirmed in the closing verses of the Bible, in the book of Revelation. Here we find the yearning and very purpose of the Bride, equipped by the Spirit. It is their united cry, their united purpose: “The Spirit and the bride say, ‘Come.’ ” (Revelation 22:17)! Yes, come Immanuel!
Finally, evidencing once again this fulfilling Bride work that is born from heaven so as to effect the true kingdom on earth, let us look again at wisdom. Wisdom is repeatedly identified as female. Seeing this truth regarding the helper/Helper, is this not also most fitting and confirming regarding the Bride? Remember, it is Wisdom who was with Immanuel when He created the heavens and the earth. Is it not obvious then that the Bride will be with Immanuel as the fulfillment of Wisdom as He creates the new heavens and new earth? Remember, “that which has been is that which will be,” and Immanuel will have a bride at His side when He establishes His kingdom on this earth—Wisdom. Christ and the Body of Christ are one, and it is wholly appropriate that the Bride serves both.
In 1 Corinthians 11:11-12 we read the mystery: “However, in the Lord, neither is woman independent of man, nor is man independent of woman. For as the woman originates from the man, so also the man has his birth through the woman; and all things originate from God.” As with Adam, the Body of Christ was the first to enter into their work on this earth (the Bride work having breached), and the Bride comes out of them. So likewise, the Body of Christ will in fact come after the Bride in their birth from above into immortality. Again, the male precedes and gives “birth” to the female, followed by the female giving birth to the male—the mystery. Thus Yahshua declared, “wisdom is vindicated by her deeds” (Matthew 11:19), “wisdom is vindicated by all her children" (Luke 7:35).
We therefore see that the first fully regenerated work whereby heaven comes down to man is the Bride, coming with Immanuel. We have also noted that the square must come down to the round. This is indeed what takes place when the Bride comes with Immanuel:
And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband. … Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls full of the seven last plagues came and spoke with me, saying, “Come here, I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb. And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the holy city, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, having the glory of God” (Revelation 21:2, 9-11).
Heaven, taking full responsibility
Now for yet another wonderful understanding regarding masculine headship, particularly as it relates to heaven. We read in Blackstone’s Commentaries a profound legal principle that clearly has its basis in the Scriptures and in the ways of Yahweh God. This is the principle of coverture. Coverture is the law of coverings whereby the male is the covering for his wife. The covered wife is, of course, the feme-covert, or the covered woman. The man is the covert-baron, or the covering lord. In this law, Blackstone explained that “the very being or legal existence of the woman is suspended during the marriage, or at least is incorporated and consolidated into that of the husband; under whose wing, protection, and cover, she performs every thing.”
We also noted that this law is clearly set forth in 1 Corinthians 11, where in verse 3 we see the divine order of headship:
But I want you to understand that Christ is the head of every man, and the man is the head of a woman, and God is the head of Christ.
Thus, the ladder, if you would, of headship is:
Let us now examine something that is most revealing. In the Genesis 3 account, we see that Satan went to the woman to tempt her to sin, and upon eating of the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, she then gave that fruit to the man to eat. When Yahweh came to them and they were hiding because of their nakedness, first, you will notice that He sought Adam, the man: “Yahweh God called to the man, ‘Where are you?’ ” (vs. 9). Adam’s reply was personal: “I heard the sound of You in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid myself.”
When Yahweh asked Adam if he had eaten from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, his answer was to point to the woman’s failure: “The woman whom You gave to be with me, she gave me from the tree, and I ate” (3:12). This weakness of the woman is noted in the New Testament: “And it was not Adam who was deceived, but the woman being deceived, fell into transgression” (1 Timothy 2:14). But despite this, when we read in the New Testament regarding the origin of the sin of man, there is no mention of Eve whatsoever. Instead, in Romans 5:12 we read: “through one man [Adam] sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned ….” Likewise, 1 Corinthians 15:21-22 states: “For since by a man came death, by a man also came the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive.” It does not say, “as in Eve all die,” and it does not even say, “as in Adam and Eve all die.” Instead, the culpability of sin rested on Adam, the man. Remember, he was the one whom Yahweh sought out and with whom he first conversed when they had both sinned.
So why was Adam sought out and got the “blame” for sin coming into humanity? Because of headship! The head must bear the blame, the responsibility. When Eve sinned, because of the line or ladder of headship, Adam being Eve’s head, he was held responsible. Oh yes, there were curses placed on all three in the Garden—on Adam, on Eve, on Satan, and even on the earth. And both Adam and Eve died. But in the end, Adam was still Eve’s covert-baron; he still bore the responsibility. (Even the earth was cursed specifically because of Adam’s sin: “cursed is the ground because of you” [Genesis 3:17].)
The basics of what I am sharing with you right now are something another Bride brother shared with me. One of the comparisons he related to demonstrate this accountability of the head was a child and their parents. He noted that if a child does not go to school, it is the parents who are held accountable. He noted that the child is accountable to an extent; but because the parents are their head, they bear the ultimate responsibility.
Let us now take this one step further up this ladder. In 1 Corinthians 11:3 we read that “Christ is the head of every man.” Therefore, if He is the head of every man, then He is accountable for every man. So, is He fulfilling His responsibility? Indeed so. In 1 John 2:2 we read: “He Himself is the propitiation for our sins; and not for ours only, but also for those of the whole world.” This is repeated in 1 John 4:14: “We have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son to be the Savior of the world.” John 4:42 equally states: “this One is indeed the Savior of the world.” And 1 Timothy 4:10 is even more specific in this regard: “For it is for this we labor and strive, because we have fixed our hope on the living God, who is the Savior of all men, especially of believers.” You will notice, He is especially the savior of believers; but even so, as the head of “all men,” He takes responsibility and is the savior of “all men.”
But passing up this ladder even further, to the top, the reality is that the Father takes ultimate responsibility, and therefore sent His Son to pay the price for man. He manifested Himself through the Son. Yahweh in fact takes the ultimate “blame” for sin. The brother who wrote me said it this way: “Yes, each of us is accountable for our actions and we must face the consequences to an extent; but the highest ultimate accountability and responsibility falls on God Himself for (1) creating us in the first place, and (2) creating us knowing the end from the beginning, knowing that we would sin and that mankind would fall.” Wonderfully, 2 Timothy 2:13 evidences this: “If we are faithless, He remains faithful, for He cannot deny Himself.”
The brother went on to say: “From an earthly perspective, man did not ‘choose’ to be created, did not ‘choose’ to be created with the propensity to sin. Hence, it is not really man's ‘fault’ that he is in the state he is in. And, just as we had no control over that, so too do we have no control over salvation—God is the ultimate head of all and is responsible for all.” I concur with him about this, and about faith. As much as people would like to think that man is the determining factor in their outcome, the bottom line is that Yahweh God is the source and the ultimate determining factor.
Where do we get faith? It is from God: “For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God … so that no one may boast” (Ephesians 2:8-9). And Romans 12:3 adds: “For through the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think more highly of himself than he ought to think; but to think so as to have sound judgment, since GOD has allotted to each the measure of faith.” When you read this passage, note that the context is to not overestimate oneself; and in this regard, the faith that you have is not of yourself, but is from God. Thus, in Acts 13:48, when the Gentiles believed, it states that, “as many as had been appointed to age-abiding life believed.” John 1:13 tells us that those who believe are born, “not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.” ALL praise is to Yahweh God who has taken full responsibility for all men; and in His own time and according to His order, He will restore and entirely regenerate all men—first the Bride, then Christians, and finally the nations. All men will be born from above, born from heaven. Read Resurrection and Judgment to understand this order and work more fully.
As with a man and his wife, as with Yahshua and all men, God must and does take full responsibility for creation. Why? Because He is male, and His creation is female. Yahweh is creation’s redeeming covert-baron, and creation is his feme-covert.
The fulfilling Bride
Of course the Bride is identified as female. So, how does this relate to the ways and design of Yahweh God? More specifically, (1) what character and qualities about a woman obligate the Bride to be identified with her, (2) what are the benefits and outcome of becoming the bride of Immanuel, and (3) what is it about the Bride that makes it so fitting to be identified with Wisdom? Keep in mind, it is not without reason that Jerusalem above comes down to earth as a bride. Its role as a female speaks of its governmental, relational, and effectual qualities as such. It could have come just as a building. It could have come as a male. But no, it came as a female, even as a bride.
Concerning the first question, what do we find in the Scriptures is to be the role, place, and character of a godly woman? From the New Testament we find the following clear instructions. In these we understand that which must be the goal and purpose of every woman, every wife, who would desire to be pleasing to God, her Creator and Lord. But also, this, most certainly, must be the goal and purpose of every woman who desires to be a part of the bride of Immanuel. How can a woman say that she wants to be the faithful bride of Immanuel, if she is unfaithful to her own husband? We reap what we sow, and as we are to others, so we are to Yahweh God. Just as it is written in 1 John 4:20, can it not likewise be said that the wife who does not serve her husband whom she has seen, does not serve God whom she has not seen? As you will see in these following verses, the woman’s actions toward her husband are “as to the Lord,” thus she has the wonderful opportunity to testify of the relationship between Immanuel and His bride.
But most importantly, this role, place, and character of a godly woman must also be the qualities of the Bride in relation to Immanuel. Thus, for any Bride-aspiring man or woman, read these passages very carefully. As you do so, judge yourself to see if you are truly worthy to call yourself the bride of Immanuel.
Wives, be subject to your own husbands, as to the Lord. … But as the church is subject to Christ, so also the wives ought to be to their husbands in everything [Ephesians 5:22, 24].
… and the wife must see to it that she fears her husband [Ephesians 5:33].
Wives, be subject to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord [Colossians 3:18].
Wives must likewise be dignified, not malicious gossips, but temperate, faithful in all things [1 Timothy 3:11].
… encourage the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be sensible, pure, workers at home, kind, being subject to their own husbands, so that the word of God will not be dishonored [Titus 2:4-5].
In the same way [as a servant submits to a master and Yahshua submitted to human authority], you wives, be submissive to your own husbands so that even if any of them are disobedient to the word, they may be won without a word by the behavior of their wives, as they observe your chaste and respectful behavior. Your adornment must not be external—braiding the hair, and wearing gold jewelry, or putting on dresses; but let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the imperishable quality of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is precious in the sight of God. For in this way in former times the holy women also, who hoped in God, used to adorn themselves, being submissive to their own husbands; just as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord, and you have become her children if you do what is right without being frightened by any fear [1 Peter 3:1-6].
Likewise, I want women to adorn themselves with proper clothing, modestly and discreetly, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly garments, but rather by means of good works, as is proper for women making a claim to godliness. A woman must quietly receive instruction with entire submissiveness [1 Timothy 2:9-11].
Let not your behavior be the external braiding of the hair and putting on gold jewelry or putting on worldly garments, but let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the imperishable quality of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is precious in the sight of God [1 Peter 3:3-4].
Without question, these are the qualities that the Bride must evidence. This must be our goal as an obedient bride, the obedient people, and is to be the purpose of anyone who aspires to be in that bride.
Based on this instruction, we cannot seek our own will, but the will of our Husband in everything. Our desire must be to give the glory to our Husband. Being set apart to Him, we cannot seek to be joined to this world, taking on its ways or appearance. Instead, our longing and pleasure is to be with our Husband, and our obedience and identity absorbed in Him. Immanuel is, of course, our covert-baron, our covering Lord. And even as a woman is obligated to cover her head when going before the Father, so the Bride must also be covered, and the angels will bear us up to Him.
Furthermore, our earthly faithfulness and obedience will evidence, confirm, and prove our true heavenly commitment. In like manner as stated many times in the Scriptures, let us prove ourselves worthy to be His bride:
But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves [James 1:22].
Therefore I, the prisoner of the Lord, implore you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling with which you have been called … [Ephesians 4:1].
Only conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ … Philippians 1:27].
… so that you would walk in a manner worthy of the God who calls you into His own kingdom and glory [1 Thessalonians 2:12].
This is a plain indication of God's righteous judgment so that you will be considered worthy of the kingdom of God, for which indeed you are suffering [2 Thessalonians 1:5].
To this end also we pray for you always, that our God will count you worthy of your calling, and fulfill every desire for goodness and the work of faith with power, so that the name of our Lord Jesus will be glorified in you, and you in Him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ [2 Thessalonians 1:11-12].
Additionally, the instruction of Colossians 1:10 should be a challenge for any believer, especially one who aspires to be Immanuel’s bride:
… so that you will walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, to please Him in all respects, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God ….
Thus, as seen in these verses, and clearly stated in these next two passages, the Bride must prepare herself for Immanuel—a preparation that denotes both a distinct awareness of His coming and a commitment to change.
“Let us rejoice and be glad and give the glory to Him, for the marriage of the Lamb has come and His bride has made herself ready” [Revelation 19:7].
And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband [Revelation 21:2].
The second question was: What are the benefits and outcome of becoming the bride of Immanuel? We will be brief here, for our greater attention should be our own devotion, our own love for and service to our covering Lord.
According to the ways and government of Yahweh God, which will be fulfilled in the Bride, the woman’s inheritance lies solely in her Husband. She takes on and is absorbed into her Husband’s identity; i.e., Mrs. Immanuel. By her one-flesh union with Him, she is integral in Him bearing offspring in His name, being fruitful and multiplying Himself. She comes under His protection and inheritance, and can even speak on His behalf, as the Bride rules and reigns with Him for a thousand years. She is brought into His presence, even into the Holy of Holies.
It is quite fitting that the Bride is the first to enter into immortality and share a heaven-born one-flesh identity with Immanuel, characteristic of marriage. This one-flesh relationship insures the much needed and essential fruit of the kingdom that earth-born-man has never been able to bring forth, as we have noted. Again, heaven alone has the masculine authority and ability to accomplish that which is both essential and required. Since all creation is female, the Bride work is a foreshadowing and even first fruit of creation coming into that one-flesh union. Thus, the woman is to be absorbed into her husband, the Bride is absorbed into Immanuel, and in time the entirety of the created is absorbed into the male heavenly.
Now for the third and final question: What is it about the Bride that makes it so fitting to be identified with Wisdom? This is somewhat of a repeat here, for we have already noted that Wisdom is the Bride who labors with Immanuel in the creation of the new heavens and new earth. By ascending alive into heaven and being born from above into heavenly bodies, we will teach and govern with truth that has not been availed to man for six thousand years. Again, as presented already, the Holy Spirit is the Helper; and, we have seen that this is the fulfillment of the promise to Adam. Thus, the Bride is indeed the helper to the Body of Christ. Again, Christ and the Body of Christ are one, and it is wholly appropriate that the Bride serves both. Finally, it is noteworthy that, to Immanuel, the Spirit and the Bride say, “Come.”
Today, how is it that one can one look through all the hoopla of man with all of the biases, distractions, and confusion so as to find truth? As noted in the second section, we can do so by gaining an understanding of the mind and ways of Yahweh God, which is a trinity: wisdom, understanding, and knowledge. With wisdom we seek to see things from Yahweh God’s perspective, with understanding we then come to know His ways and what He is doing, and with knowledge truth is revealed and confirmed, such as these vital and relevant matters we are seeing here pertaining to male and female. And thus, with the establishment of the Bride, indeed Wisdom will be established; and with Wisdom will come understanding; and with understanding will come abundant knowledge.
In this closing portion we will address multiple, somewhat diverse points that deserve mentioning, some of which might in some manner be a repeat, but an important highlight.
♦ This correlation of the Bride with Immanuel is an important understanding of the replication of the male/female government. The woman is to her husband, as creation is to God, as the Bride is to Immanuel. And since this is valid and even vital and revealing truth, it should all the more cause obedience on the part of all female positions. Also, it is most revealing that society today has so greatly and gravely departed from this truth—in civil governance, in the work place, in education, in the church, and in the home. Society today is nothing less than the extension of the rebellion of the ‘60s—throwing off authority. The ‘70s and its emphasis on feminism was simply a continuation, a maturation, of the rebellion of the ‘60s. And sadly, man accepted feminism as “truth,” to the extent that even political conservatives think it is right. The truth is, it is the Garden of Eden all over again—Eve being deceived, and the man listening to her. Men have followed in the guilt of Adam—“Because you have listened to the voice of your woman” (Genesis 3:17).
♦ We see that the female is the weaker vessel. This is specifically stated in the Scriptures (1 Peter 3:7), and is evidenced all around us in her Eveonian abandonment of her place as a wife and mother; her vanity, evidenced by the adornment of her flesh and her sensuality; and her pursuit of the role of the man, including in the church, which is specifically forbidden (1 Timothy 2:12). In like regard, the created, which is equally in the position of being female, is easily deceived and does not give the glory to their Creator, but follows their own creations and understanding and will.
So, we must ask here: How then can the female Bride be any different? By her very nature of being female, should she be no different? What makes her an exception? The answer is found in another question: What made cursed Manasseh and Ephraim acceptable to Yahweh God when they, like Ishmael, were an unacceptable mix—half Israelite and half Egyptian? The answer: They were split and flipped! So it is with the Bride. The first Remnant effected the abomination of desolation, and like Eve, handed the forbidden fruit to the Body of Christ. But, in order to make the otherwise unclean Bride clean, Yahweh split it with the Body of Christ.
This is the same thing that has to happen with the Body of Christ itself, evidenced by the wisdom of Solomon. In 1 King 3:16-28, two women came to him, each claiming that a baby boy was theirs. The solution from Solomon was to split him. Though the boy was not literally split, the legal decree was made. His life was preserved when it was revealed that the true mother was not the one who had given birth “on the third day” after she had given birth, and that son had been killed (vs. 18). There are different ways of seeing this “third day,” but the truth is that the Body of Christ must be split as well by the Millennial Reign in order to be made clean and acceptable. Attesting to this identification is the fact that this account is found solely in Christianity 1 Kings.
Back to the Bride. Now that the Bride has been split by the Body of Christ, and thereby made clean, the second Remnant can perform a work that is otherwise unlawful (as with split Ephraim and Manasseh). As an added testimony, read Kissing, Lips, and Attesting Glory, page 4, and you will see that the second Remnant, though the Bride, can now effect a male work. Remember, when two parts are brought together to make one flesh, as will be the case with the two Remnant, this is only legal and thereby possible when one is male and one is female. To be otherwise is unlawful and unfruitful homosexuality. (Thus, it can also be noted that when a woman abandons her place so as to be in the place of the man, she too is homosexual [one and the same sex], guaranteeing that there will also not be any good fruit from this, and is equally unlawful sin.) As a male work, the second Remnant can now accomplish what the first Remnant was not able to accomplish as a female—fulfilling the Elijah work that births Immanuel to this earth!
♦ Heaven is truly the only remedy to today’s mass of social, governmental, financial, religious, and moral problems.
♦ The church that we have known for the last two thousand years is the kingdom of heaven, but in the hands of earthly created man. For this reason, it has been corrupted. This corruption, of course, was foretold by Yahshua (Matthew 13:24-33), and was attested by Him at His affliction and crucifixion.
♦ What is not lawful on the earth, is lawful in heaven. What is not lawful with the female, is lawful with the male. This is why we must have the latter rain—the windows of heaven must open and Yahweh pour out a blessing we cannot contain (Malachi 3:10).
♦ Our goal and purpose as the Bride is to get the masculine heaven to come to this feminine earth.
♦ Few people are willing to think and act governmentally. Why? Because they want to do their own will. This is why it is necessary for Yahweh God to write His laws on our heart: “This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the Lord: I will put my laws upon their heart, and on their mind I will write them, and their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more” (Hebrews 10:16-17).
♦ Feminism looks at women as being in competition with men; but, Yahweh God’s order and design is not competition, but the woman finding completion in the man. So will be the fulfillment with the Bride, and eventually with all creation.
♦ If a person does not want the heavenly, they could care less about the matters addressed here; or as far as that goes, they could care less about anything here at remnantbride.com. But, if a person truly wants the heavenly and will not be satisfied with anything less, then they will want the government of the heavenly in their life right now.
♦ The rod is the symbol of authority, and by the design and testimony of the Creator, the male alone has been given the rod, even the right to rule and teach. The woman does not have the rod; but, there is one way she can legitimately and profitably receive it, and that is by receiving it into her womb. By taking the rod into the womb, the woman can bring forth fruitfulness according to her design (1 Timothy 2:15). So it is with the Bride as well.
♦ Many say that we must begin to think outside the box, but very few do this. In fact, there is a term called “normalcy bias.” This is defined as a mental state people enter when facing a disaster, causing them to underestimate both the possibility of the disaster and its effects. An example of this was the Jews in Germany when the Nazis began their ethnic cleansing. Many of the Jews assumed that if they remained in that with which they were accustomed and familiar, they would still be safe. Since they did not look outside the box to see what was really about to take place and what they had to do in order to save their lives, they were killed by the hundreds of thousands.
Frankly, this is the very problem with the church. With two thousand years of history, they have a MEGA normalcy bias. They think they have the truth; and because men have accepted teachings and practices all these years, they think they are true. This is otherwise called tradition. A list of these errors is too long to even begin, especially with 35,000 denominations and sects. But the fact is, Christians have been hidden in the cleft of the rock for the entire time, and have been in hades, or “to not see.” This too was Yahweh God’s design. With this endeared normalcy bias, change will come and they will be too biased to believe and do something different.
Now, speaking of thinking outside of the box, let us back off even further and see even greater truth. Do we really need to get outside of the box? Maybe we are not even in the box in the first place. Maybe the supposed box is just trying to take the kingdom by force? Based on that which we have seen here, what needs to take place is that we think outside of the ball, and thereby even see the box, the square, the kingdom that comes down from above. We are on a round world, in bodies formed from a round egg, all our cells have at their heart a round nucleus, and we see the natural through round eyes. But, we have to enter into that square city that comes to this earth from heaven, bringing truth and government and righteousness that is DESPERATELY needed! To enter that city, we cannot have normalcy bias.
I invite you to think outside the ball and see the “box.”
The Spirit and the Bride say, “Come!”
