Women preaching in the CHURCH is a heart matter to The One And Only Jesus

We women desire to be pretty. We like pretty things, we want our homes to be pretty, and we want to be seen and known as attractive and or pretty. This is how we are hardwired. God designed us this way. Prettiness is paramount to women, and we are acutely aware of our physical assets.

And, we naturally use our physical assets to our advantage.

As a married woman I have used my prettiness to sway my husband's attention to myself! This is a perfectly legitimate use of prettiness/physical assets. But the use of prettiness (physical assets) in the pulpit is criminal to Christ Jesus and puts the earthly and eternal salvation of people in jeopardy!

Webster's Dictionary states something that attracts or charms is seduction.


It's a heart matter ...

This is one reason why we women, should not preach and or teach oracles from The Holy Word of God in the assembly of men and women.

The desire to be pretty in the assembly of men and women negates any Truth in rightly dividing the Truth. This prettiness in the pulpit should not be tolerated but it often is because some servants (men) enjoy being tempted in the pews and the pulpit!


It's a heart matter ...

Jesus addresses this seduction issue himself in the Book of Revelation and only Jesus labels the prophetess (a female who declares oracles) as a Jezebel in the very same book!

Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols. Revelation 2:20

Jesus also directly addresses adultery in the Book of Matthew (Beatitudes)

Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart. Matthew 5:27-28

It's a heart matter ...

After Jesus steps on the seen all things are considered and there is no separation of that which we conceive in our hearts and that which we do. 

The spiritual powers presented in the second chapter of the Book of Revelation: 
Jesus
Church 
She calls herself a prophetess 
That woman Jezebel
Servants 

She calls herself a prophetess but her heart's desire is to be attractive, which is an act of seduction!





It's a heart matter ...

I just love how, The Lord always, always  gives us an opportunity to repent. And even though we're in the Book of Revelation and Jesus is super not happy, HE still gives us space to repent!


And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not. Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. Revelation 2:21-22

space =
5550 χρόνος chrónos, khron'-os; of uncertain derivation; a space of time


It's a heart matter ...

This is why Jesus later addresses the heart in the very same chapter of The Book of Revelation!

And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works. Revelation 2:23 KJV

We women are tempting servants from the prowl, the pole, the post, the platform, the pew and the pulpit.


It's a heart matter ...

Women pulpit preachers, It's Time to repent and Know, The One And Only Jesus is waiting to mediate for you and me in this very season, on this very day.
