God Empowers Women! part 2

powerful-women

Women were made to be Prophets, Apostles, Pastors, Teachers, and Evangelists; how do we know?  God told us over and over and over. We have Priscilla who was always mentioned before her husband because she was important (Acts 18:24-26). Junia was  an Apostle even though some translations changed the pronoun from her to him, Junia had a uterus and led people (Romans 16:7).  We hear about Pheobe a Minister of God, and Phillip  had a whole household of Prophetesses.  Deborah was a Prophetess and a Judge in the spiritual and the political. She was not the only one in the old testament that we see.  There was Miriam (Exodus 15:20), Huldan (2 Kings 22:14), and Noadiah (Nehemiah 6:14).  There was the great prophet Isaiah who’s wife was also a Prophetess (Isaiah 8:3).

In the New Testament we see Anna, Elizabeth the Prophetesses.  Lets not forget the very first person Jesus told to go and preach that he was the Messiah was the whore at the well. I can keep giving examples, but basically that will profit nothing if we don’t remove the blinders of what we want to see and believe.

It is like when you buy a new car, lets say it a Toyota Camery, you never realized how many Toyota Camerys there are until you have one. You were not looking for them so you couldn’t see them.  Yet they have always been there your are just finally aware of them.  It’s the same way with truth of God’s Word, we are not aware of all He has revealed to us because that not where we put our focus.
