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.
