    • Philippians 4:11-12 KJVS
      [11] Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. [12] I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. 1 Timothy 6:6-8 KJVS
      [6] But godliness with contentment is great gain. [7] For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. [8] And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.    
    • . It was the custom then for men to speak up in public assemblies, to ask questions and even interrupt the speaker when they did not understand, but this liberty was not granted to women. Paul is saying, women should not dictate to men, but exercise their rights to teach, prophesy (or preach), pray, and do other things under the authority of men (1 Cor. 14: 34-35).
    • This seems to disagree with the blanket statement of women must remain quiet.  
    • Scripture plainly and clearly teaches that God calls women to preach. There is as much controversy regarding the subject, whether God calls women to preach as there is on all other doctrinal issues. Thankfully, as always, the Scriptures clear up this question like they do all others matters if we will but believe the Bible.

      In the gospel there were several woman messengers who proclaimed the good news (Matt. 28:1-10; Luke 24:9-11; John 4:28-30; 20:16-18). Is proclaiming the good news preaching??

      There is nothing in Scripture which says women cannot be used by God to further His work on this Earth?

      Regarding these end time days, in Acts we have a prediction that God will pour out of His Spirit in the last days "UPON ALL FLESH; and your sons and DAUGHTERS shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams; and upon my servants and upon my HANDMAIDENS I will pour out of my Spirit and they will prophesy." Prophesying is explained in 1 Cor. 14:3-4 as "speaking unto MEN to edification and exhortation and comfort." Thats preaching, teaching, praying, in anyones language. and God says He will pour out His Spirit upon men and WOMEN to enable them to do this!

      These following passages prove to any unbiased mind that prophesying is for the church which has men and WOMEN members (1 Cor. 12:1-13; 14:1-6, 12, 24-26, 29-33).

      In Acts 21:8-9 we read Philip had four daughters that did prophecy or preach in the early church.

      In Romans 16 we have Phebe, Priscilla, Mary Junia, Tryphosa, Persis, all female names, women mentioned as laborers in the gospel.

      In Phil. 4:2-3 we have Euodias and Syntyche, two women who are emntioned as leaders in the local church at Philippi. They are referred to as "those WOMEN which labored with me in the Gospel."

      Paul speakes of the Corinthian women prophesying and praying in church (1 Cor. 11:4; 14:1-5, 23-26).

      When paul said for women to "keep silence in the church" he was not speaking of women prophesying or praying, but he referred to asking their husbands certain things at church.

      He said, "If they will learn anything, let them ask their husbands at home" and not in the church (1 Cor. 14:34-35). But that they could speak and prophecy and pray in church is clear from 1 Cor. 11:4; 14:3-4, 23-26; and Acts 2:16-21.

      Women have been used in all ages by God, Read there Scriptures and some men can disbelieve them if they want, but who realy cares? Its the Scriptures which matter and not what some men think. (Ex. 15:20; Judges 4:4; 2 Kings 22:14; 2 Chron. 34:22; Neh. 6:14; Isa. 8:3; Luke 1:39-56; 2:36).
      God is soverign and He can use a woman when He pleases and He does not have to ask some mere man whom He should use and whether He should use a women or man. And most women I have heard have made more sense regarding doctrin than most men I have ever heard regarding doctrin or the actual Word of God?

      Leaving the question of women aside regarding their Christian walk and what motivates them regarding God's Word, we can just as easily ask, "What dominates the average male Christians life regarding God's Word?"

      It is not the major sins of the flesh that men permit to dominate them, but it is the sin of constantly doubting God and His Word that destroys the thruth and men’s relationship with Him.

      Doubting God's Word is not circumstancial, its a free will choice. One can either believe what God says, or doubt what God says. Nothing but confusion results from being dishonest with God's Word. If facts which are stated in the Bible and other theories are not, then which would be the more sensible thing to believe? If one decides to believe the simplicity of the Bible all subjects will be easy to understand. If we accept the incomprehensible theories of men, then the Bible becomes incomprehensible. Lets get our own house in order guys, instead of continually straining at gnats regarding women in the church.
    • Which is not what I think. For someone with such a heart for Israel, you remain yet blind to the revelation of all of the End Time events written in the very history of Israel. For Israel was God's messenger to the nations, not only by their words, but by their very deeds, about both the First and the Second Comings of our Lord. The Church will be called up unto heavenly Mount Zion, just like Moses and Joshua were called up onto Mount Sinai. Paul reveals this mystery to us in Hebrews 12. Not all will be able to ascend in our time, just as not all were able to go up then. The remainder of believers, Jew and Gentile, including the 144,000, will be provided for into the wilderness, as we are shown in Rev. 12, Ezek. 20, and elsewhere. Just as were the Israelites provided for in the wilderness during the Exodus. When their era of cleansing is fulfilled below, Christ will descend, with the armies of heaven clothed in white robes = the elect who ascended, "To Zion Town."
