My Plea and Encouragement to Men
I would first like to state, that I know there are many Men of God that are with their whole heart living and working for our Lord and savior. I would ask you to lend some of your time to courses, to help guide some men who are in error back to the path of the Will of God for their lives and concerning Men of God.
Now I understand that it isn’t an easy appointment to be a leader, man of Valor or head of a household-- but this Christian walk is not easy for any of us. But we do have a helper (The Holy Spirit) and this walk cannot be done without Him.
So, if you want to be a man of Valor, a man to be followed by your wife, a man after God’s own heart, you must first be born again – into your manhood. Then you must completely die to yourself. Surrender all to God. Be born of Water and Spirit!
Understand that old habits and ways of doing things will not just disappear, so don’t despair, it is a process. To receive the gift is as simple as believing and confessing with your mouth unto the saving of your soul.
But, to become Holy is a day-to-day, and sometimes a moment-by – moment process. So if you are new in Christ, please stay encourage, the Lord is not mocked, if you stay the course you will see great change and extreme power flow through you!
Again please stay encouraged! There are women who still believe in the order our Father set, myself being one of them.
Also, I want you to understand that this book is not to bash men. But it is to shame so-called Christian men, who batter, belittle and abuse their wives. It is a warning to make them aware of the danger they face if they do not repent. It also is to make them aware of the blockage they bring on themselves.
I am speaking of blockage from all prosperity in their mind, heart, health, soul and finances. Trust this, the Lord will not hear their cries or prayer, without their repentance (to confess and forsake the wrong done). Yeah, I know this goes both ways, but this letter is addressing men.
As women of God we need a man who loves God more then he loves anyone or anything else, including us. This man will love a woman the way God does, this love will be with the heart of God. Rather it is in a tender moment or a moment he has to be strong, protective or encouraging.
Even if there is a time when he is correcting his wife of a wrong or an error, A man of God will do it lovingly and effectively, not in himself, but because He will be led by God in all his doings. Not in a bullying and controlling manner.
I want to state that I am aware of some of tactics and manipulation that some women practice to get their way in their homes. Many use anger, the withholding of sex, silent treatment or the refusal to take care of the house.
Men I want you to hear me on this. Don’t retaliate; just keep loving her the way the Lord commands, and trust she will answer to the Lord on it.
I said all that to say, that a Man of God can even overcome anything the devil tries to do through that woman. A Man of God will be able to love that woman back into order.
Yes, she may throw fits, get angry, let her! Don’t compromise the Word of God to please anyone, for this will guarantee that you will lose them!
It will not be done by you rebelling back, yelling, huffing and trying to force. Continue applying the Word of God and continue loving her the way the Word instructs you. Pray for her and with her, and put forth your faith; and God will bring that woman back into line, into the proper order.
Things will be better than ever. I can’t stress enough don’t compromise by acquiescence, so that she isn’t upset, because then you are stepping out of order yourself to cater to her, which cannot work! Trust God! He is faithful!
Understand that I know it is an immediate fleshy reaction to want to retaliate when someone is being hurtful and neglectful, but understand if you act as she is acting and get out of love, then the devil has you in a trap.
Because neither of your prayers can get through, someone has to be acting according to the word of God, someone has to be the one who repents and prays for the other that there can be change.
So the one who is on the side of the Lord, He will be on your side. When you are walking in love, practicing patience and continually praying, the change and correction you seek will come. Oh, trust God is not mocked, it will come!
I know to a man who is carnal these things make him look weak, but trust me, a man in this state is by far the strongest, and the most powerful in any situation.
Please stop viewing the word Submission as a feminine trait or a weak trait! Know that as our Lord and Savior submitted to the Cross and to the Will of the Father. You as a Man of God must submit to the Will of the Father to be an effective, Christian, Husband, Father, Friend and a steward of all God will place before you!
I want you to understand that God knows what this world has promoted. He knows that there are women who consider themselves above all. Women who demean and belittle their husbands based on what he has. Some feel that if they make more money that they are the head of the House. Trust, they will bring forth judgment on themselves if they don’t repent. Simply put, women who think this way or wrong!
So to all men, I am asking that you believe what the Word of God says about who you are as a Man of God. Read His word, and pray for understanding. Rise up and take your proper place in this world and in the household!
Many pray for restoration of the household and the family unit, but they want to do it contrary to what the word of God teaches. So I say to those men, you labor in vain. There is only one way to restore men and the family unit, by the Word of God!
I will not subscribe to women running the household over the man, it is not how it is to be. I say this because I know that the final authority is the Word of God, His will and His way is the only way!
So men, I am asking you to consider your ways and if they line up with the Word of God. Pray to the Father to search your heart, to correct you! Speak to the Holy Spirit of God, He is eagerly awaiting you!
I am not saying all of you have issues in the same areas but some struggle with physical abuse, bullying. Another man may struggle with neglectfulness and anger. Another man may struggle with addiction to porn.
There are many different struggles: infidelity, selfishness, acquiescence, alcohol, low self-worth, verbal abusiveness, just to list a few Everyone has something they fight against daily within themselves. I say to you it isn’t your fight! Give it over to God. Your part is to, choose to believe, be meek, read His word and obey. Understand, as the Man, you will have to answer to the way you chose to head your house.
So the man who won’t say no to his wife when he knows he should is no better than the man who is addicted to the porn, as it all gives place to the devil and leads to the destruction of the household.
Men you can no longer permit this! Yes I said permit as the devil can only do what you permit, by walking in the ways of the world, by doing things in your own way, and your own understanding, you then step out of the light, you step from beneath the covering of the blood of Jesus, thus permitting the devil to come in and have his way.
The devil and all his agents have been placed beneath you, when will you get tired of being tired of allowing him to have what is rightfully yours? Total and complete peace in God - nothing missing and nothing broken in your life!
I want to let you know, that I believe in restoration. I believe that you can overcome anything in this world by the Power given in Faith in what the Blood of Jesus has done for us.
I want you to know that not all women look at you as hopeless and heartless. I see who you can become in Christ. I see who you were meant to be! I understand that there is no Woman without Man! Nor could there be Man without Woman!
We need you to return to God, return to God’s ways, surrender your will, surrender your mind, surrender your heart and return to His love, so that you can return to the Head of the House, return to us women in the proper state in which you were intended to dwell, as a Son of the Most High God.
We adore you, for there is nothing like a Man of God. He moves and motivates a woman to be better. He lifts her, cleaning her, to present to himself, Holy, sanctified and without spot or blemish. He nourishes her as he does himself. He is strong and protective, yet gentle and passionate.
His strong words move her in to action and submission in its proper state. He loves his woman through tears from grievous times and he also brings her to tears of joy.
This man can make even his correction move her in beautiful ways, for he knows his words have power. He is a bold as a lion, yet compassionate and kind, speaking the truth in love, for he and the Father are of one mind!
So I ask who wouldn’t want a man of God. It would sadden me to hear any woman claim she doesn’t.
Again I tell you we want and need you, we believe in who the Lord has made you to be, so my loving plea is for you to return to God so that you can return to you proper place in life and in the Home; which is without a doubt a man of Valor, a man after God’s heart and Head of the House.
