Women of High Standing Stirred Up Against Bible Teachings

Acts 13:49-52

“The word of the Lord spread through the whole region. 
But the Jewish leaders incited the God-fearing women of high standing
and the leading men of the city.
They stirred up persecution against Paul and Barnabas and expelled them from their region.

“God-fearing women” refers to those who were OK in the eyes of the Jewish authorities who were hostile against the teachings of Jesus Christ. They were incited to persecute the Apostles, Paul and Barnabas. Today, “God fearing women” would translate into those living by the god that has power over physiology, and is able to form thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. They are living for the agenda that comes through those who govern by the mark of the beast. Their “Hands off my body” protests have incited them against the followers of Jesus Christ. The incitement against the teachings of the Bible also includes the “leading men of the city.” Which translates into the leading men within the culture of those who live for the progress made through the mark of the beast.

The issues centering around “women’s rights” are the thrust behind changing cultures around the world. Abortion is a worldwide issue, and when the US Supreme Court overturned the right to kill unborn babies, women around the world joined in protests against the Court’s ruling. In the process, they are incited against the followers of Jesus Christ and refuse to live by the Court’s “right wing” “authoritarianism.” Likewise, even as I type this, Iran is experiencing violent protests against the wearing of Hijabs and the women are even cutting their hair. Women are at the forefront of changing the nation’s culture. In the United States, and countries around the world, women are protesting in solidarity with them.

“Women’s rights” issues are changing cultures, national laws, and national constitutions. Those who govern by the mark of the beast are pushing for a global constitution that discards every religion and every cultural tradition. “It opposes and exalts itself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that it as God sits in the temple of God, shewing itself that it is God.” Same-sex marriages is something the US Congress is planning to codify into the law of the land, they are changing the Godly foundations of the US Constitution. At the same time, they push for conformity to world standards that they refer to as a “global democracy.”

Marriages, as established by God, have ended a long time ago, which was also a “woman’s rights” issue that brought “liberation.” The only thing it liberated was the mark of the beast which now has made itself the center of every relationship. Those who govern by the mark of the beast demand to be the head of every relationship. It pushes men aside as the head over the woman as Christ is head over the Church. In fact, it has polluted the churches to secularize them as they submit to the authority of the mark of the beast. A fire has been kindled against the teachings of the Bible as followers of Jesus are being persecuted.

While other cultures may not be aware of the prophecies of Daniel and in the Revelation, those who live for Jesus Christ see the global agenda. That is why it is essential to share the Bible Scriptures. The Bible tells us that there is a push for a “global democracy” which causes every national culture and constitution to change. The Bible warns us not to be a part of what is going on in the world because it is the evil rooted in the mark of the beast. Salvation does not come through “liberation,” the only thing being “liberated” in this world is the mark of the beast. Liberation happens when we come to God through Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sin, to immerse ourselves into the reading of the Bible, and to separate ourselves from the unGodly influences of this world.

There were four unmarried women, blood born sisters, mentioned in Acts who shared the prophecies of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This world needs women filled with the Holy Spirit and fiery tongue to speak the Word of God. “At the house of Philip the evangelist, one of the Seven. He had four unmarried daughters who prophesied.” Acts 21:8-9

The majority of the world is dead to Christ, they have chosen the broad road that leads to destruction. “All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast—all whose names have not been written in the Lamb’s book of life.” Revelation 13:8 As we Believers remain on the straight and narrow path, there isn’t much we can do to share the testimony of Jesus Christ with them. We have to follow the example of Paul and Barnabas, “they shook the dust off their feet as a warning to them and went to Iconium. And the disciples were filled with joy and with the Holy Spirit.”

So, they shook the dust off their feet as a warning to them and went to Iconium. 
And the disciples were filled with joy and with the Holy Spirit.”
Acts 13:49-52

    1. My Mom and Dad were both born in the late 1920’s. Mom never drove a car a day in her life, never worked til much later in life, in her later 40’s (Day Care Worker watching children). After working for the Post Office for 18 years Dad got a bad back and couldn’t work anymore. It’s so very hard to have those “traditional” values nowadays. From reading some of your posts, I believe you could be an unmarried daughter who prophesies. Thanks for liking and commenting. Jesus is Lord of us single people too.

      1. Yes, Amen. He loves us all! Thank you for your generous reply to my comment. After my appointment, I’ll try to come back and write more about this. I still have a few min, actually.

        Before my husband passed away, I knew no other way than finding purpose and reward in taking care of him and my children. Now that my kids are young adults, I still find great joy in being with my children. ♥️♥️♥️

        1. I’m glad that you are experiencing joy with your children, that is all part of walking in the Gospel of Peace, which more parents and children need to learn nowadays. I feel for your loss….maybe I will start thinking of you as an unmarried prophetess.

        1. Wow, that kind of makes you a tourist attraction (sorry about the crude humor) but it does make you the original “Morton”s Salt” as far as being the salt of the earth, as Jesus referred to.
