It isn’t surprising that Christianity hasn’t spread because the house has divided itself because in most churches women are stopped from using their talents. Yet Jesus said to use our talents and that was for everybody, and we will have to give him an account one day of how we have used our talents, and it won’t be an excuse “oh but I was a woman”. Please see the Bible passages. Matthew 25:14-30.
It isn’t surprising that Christianity hasn’t spread because the house of God has divided itself. Instead now is the time to team up with men, women and children to prepare for the Lord’s return.
Matthew 12:25 King James Version (KJV) 25 And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:
Nobody has the right to tell the God the Creator of the universe who he can use, as he will choose whoever wants to do his will, and he even chose Balaam’s donkey to speak to Balaam. See Numbers 22: 21-35 and see how the potter can do what he wants to do with the clay in Isaiah 45:9.
When Jesus rose from the dead it was to a woman called Mary Magdalene that he appeared before his disciples, and he told her to tell his disciples that he had risen from the dead. See Matthew 28: 1-10
Jesus treated the woman at the well like he would any man and had a conversation with her, despite his disciples not liking it. Jesus treated women with love and respect and didn’t undermine them.
Jesus clearly said that a disciple wasn’t superior to a master, and so we have to see what Jesus told us to do, and put Him in first place, and obey Jesus Christ who is the Son of God. After all He is the only one who is perfect. Jesus told us not to grieve the Holy Spirit, and when people refuse to let women use their talents it grieves the Holy Spirit because they are stifling the Holy Spirit, and that is a serious sin. Again Jesus Christ can choose anybody he wants to and no one has the right to tell God that he can only use men.
Jesus commissions his Disciples to make disciples of nations and to teach people to observe what He had taught them. See Matthew 28:19.
We can see by the following Bible text that the Holy Spirit would go on men, women and children. I believe that we are at the end times and God will use whoever wants to do his will and makes no distinction between men, women and children. See Acts 2: 16-21
Time is short, let us put down the barriers of all sorts of sexism, racism and any kind of division, and instead of wanting to be first, let us have the desire to serve, and team up to do the Lord’s work in unity, harmony and love, and all become Jesus’ Disciples, and prepare the world for the Lord’s return. If we do that, then Christianity will be stronger and spread because the house will no longer be divided, so the Lord’s love will reign in His Disciples ‘hearts and there will be mass conversions because Jesus’s Disciples will be His lamps shining in the world as imitators of Christ.
