Male / Female
28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is
neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in
Christ Jesus. KJV
THERE IS NO MALE OR FEMALE IN CHRIST
JESUS (Gal. 3:28). Accordingly, all textual references to MALE and/or FEMALE on
the LEM Site, point to spiritual principles, and the words MAN and MEN, as well
as the pronouns, HE, HIS and HIM, include, WOMAN, WOMEN, SHE and HER.
CHRIST JESUS IS THE ONLY SPIRITUAL MALE. Accordingly, all
powers and principalities other than Christ Jesus are identified as female IN
RELATION TO CHRIST JESUS.
The powers and principalities which incarnated this fallen world (2 Cor. 4:4) are
male IN RELATION TO FALLEN MANKIND, and female IN RELATION TO CHRIST JESUS.
Wherefore, if Christ dwells in you, you are a new
[spiritually male] creature (2 Cor. 5:17-18); a sharp, threshing instrument,
with teeth (Is. 41:15) strong enough to thresh the spiritually female powers and
principalities that bind mankind with the chains of death.
The physical man is the head of his
wife and family, but all males do not have authority over all females by virtue
of their physical sex.
The Spiritual Man, Christ
Jesus, has the authority to manifest Himself through whomever He pleases, and
when He chooses to preach, teach, or pastor through a physical woman,
that physical woman becomes spiritually male to
whatever extent Christ Jesus reveals Himself through her. The indwelling mind
and Spirit of Christ Jesus fully qualifies a physical woman to wield the
authority of whichever spiritual office Christ Jesus has called her to.
Physical men and
women should never strive with one another but, rather, they should try the
Spirit on everyone that they come in contact with, and submit to the Spirit of
Christ, wherever, and in whoever, He is appearing.
God bless you.
Sincerely in Christ,
