A woman is capable to rise above herself to live out God’s perfect plan

A woman is capable to rise above her own past and present limitations of self to live out the perfect plan that God has designed for her in the heavenly record book. All she needs is to be a woman who knows God and fear God reverently. The problem with us is that we think we are God. We want to be God. We choose what we want to believe. We use our personal agenda to measure God.

I have not written for women since March 11, 2021. Why? I ask myself. I have avoided the answer until now. The main thing is I have been disappointed by women. Not all women. Just the lot that had refused to align themselves with God’s plumb line and even rationality and common sense, when voting or taking side when the chips were all down, exposing the crux of the matter, and the matter actually permeates the whole human race and not just women alone.

If I have to ask a question on what has caused me not to write in this blog (or rather, silent when it comes to writing for women) it’s this question: why does any Christian woman persist in choosing to be self-centered and selfish and even vengeful, choosing to believe in blatant lies and follow mass hysteria? Do they not have better sense? (For the information of those obsessed by skin colors: I am neither white nor black nor red and I am not a Latino. I am neither Western nor Eastern. I claim Galatians 3:28 as my true identity)

Wait a minute, I have nothing against being a woman. In fact, for those who have read this woman blog you would have noted I have been voicing for the voiceless women, digging through the Bible to speak out when not many men (or even women) have spoken with the perspective of a woman. When you read my stories of Eve, Sarah, Leah, Dinah, Bathsheba, Rehab, and many other New Testament Bible women, including showing the same serious respect and integrity to give a truthful and unbiased (often differing from the world view of many other scholars) account for those not even having a name, you would have noticed and even agreed that I am definitely on the side of seeing women in God’s eyes, and following the heart of Jesus, as I have purposed and opened my heart to receive only what are revealed in God’s words. For example, read what I have written on Leah. (Wounded Love —a ruler and a visionary)

I have written in this women blog how Bible women have been blessed. How women (the 50% of the world population) through out history, have overcome prejudices and evil in their days, how they have raised up kings and priests, and how they have fulfilled God’s plans in their lives and in the lives of those whom they impacted. I have written how godly and wise women were honored and favored just as godly and wise men were honored. I sincerely believe that women are capable to rise above the evil of self-centeredness, which is the root of all griefs.

It is now a new year and the first month is nearing the end. I decide this morning to write to you. How shall an ideal woman be? Again, I would quote a Bible woman (possibly Bathsheba, the mother of king Solomon) as recorded in Bible Proverbs 31:10-31. Take heed that this is not a unique one-off historical woman. Many unnamed women throughout human history have come under this category of godly, wise, capable and unselfish good women of faith. (My late mother was one.) They write the history of light (as against darkness) with their own unselfish lives, walking in the light, and leave a positive spiritual legacy to enable other men and women to follow.

Bathsheba was a beautiful, wise, good, wealthy, royal woman. But her earlier life was full of tragedies and sadness. Yet her past did not shape her into a bitter, crooked, evil, vengeful, ugly (at heart), self-centered woman who went down in history in shame and ruin. No, she rose up and became the woman her son King Solomon recorded in the following famous set of Bible verses of a virtuous woman.

Bible verses

Proverbs 31:10-31 New Living Translation A Wife of Noble Character 10 Who can find a virtuous and capable wife? She is more precious than rubies. 11 Her husband can trust her, and she will greatly enrich his life. 12 She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life. 13 She finds wool and flax and busily spins it. 14 She is like a merchant’s ship, bringing her food from afar. 15 She gets up before dawn to prepare breakfast for her household and plan the day’s work for her servant girls. 16 She goes to inspect a field and buys it; with her earnings she plants a vineyard. 17 She is energetic and strong, a hard worker. 18 She makes sure her dealings are profitable; her lamp burns late into the night. 19 Her hands are busy spinning thread, her fingers twisting fiber. 20 She extends a helping hand to the poor and opens her arms to the needy. 21 She has no fear of winter for her household, for everyone has warm clothes. 22 She makes her own bedspreads. She dresses in fine linen and purple gowns. 23 Her husband is well known at the city gates, where he sits with the other civic leaders. 24 She makes belted linen garments and sashes to sell to the merchants. 25 She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future. 26 When she speaks, her words are wise, and she gives instructions with kindness. 27 She carefully watches everything in her household and suffers nothing from laziness. 28 Her children stand and bless her. Her husband praises her: 29 “There are many virtuous and capable women in the world, but you surpass them all!” 30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last; but a woman who fears the Lord will be greatly praised. 31 Reward her for all she has done. Let her deeds publicly declare her praise.

born for a time such as this: faith and grace

Bible women of faith and grace

What better is a time such as this to remember all the good things in life? Women are born to remember the good things. We are born for any time that is called, a time such as this, in the like of queen Esther. I have compiled a list of links to my previous blogs on famous Bible women of faith and grace, and the significance God has viewed each of them, and whom the Holy Spirit has highlighted and recorded in the Holy Bible. I pray you will be blessed and strengthened like these women as you read their stories and be encouraged that your life is precious in God’s eyes. Never give up hope anchored in Jesus. The tough woman gets going when the going gets tough.

2021 business ahead: imagine a windfall today

a list of ten links I took at random from those who clicked the like icon of my various WP blog posts, internet marketing related. I will be posting ten links daily until exhausted.

millennial strategic marketing

Imagine a “windfall”/pleasant surprise when your internet website/marketing links are suddenly posted by someone whom you don’t even know except as a fellow WP blogger?

Here is what I am doing, posting daily ten random links I copied from the list of those who appeared on the likes list of some of my internet (marketing related) posts. Why? I believe many internet bloggers/marketers wish that there would be clicks to their sites to view some of their services/products.

It is really like being a tiny pin hidden in limitless number of football fields of haystack. WordPress has 98% of the overall blogs (27.6 million) on the internet. Over 455 million websites use WordPress.

new series “businesses 2021 and beyond”: A REAL LIFE BUSINESS SUCCESS CASE (2021-06-12)

How did a small business man go from bankruptcy to prosperity to zero again and then to boom? This is a real life small business success case.

On January 1, 2003 a newly converted Christian woman brought her middle-age bankrupt husband to my house for counseling. They have just closed down their food and beverage retail business. He was declared a bankrupt because his electrical contractor dad used his name to secure a business loan and defaulted. All his savings went toward repaying the many creditors of his dad. After closing down his own business he had been working odd jobs and could not even make ends meet. His family were living with his own parents under very bad condition. He had tried many jobs and failed.

After hearing his case, I asked him one question, “What are you good at?” I then found that he has been a very experienced and skilled electrical wiring technician working for his dad since a teenager. And he has passed official exam and has his own trade license for electrical contractor business although he never utilized his license. The final decision at the end of the counsel: he agreed to try getting some electrical wiring jobs as the first step to being an electrical contractor. He prayed and accepted Christ that same day. The wife volunteered to be his assistant until he could employ someone. She learned everything from scratch and became his capable and faithful assistant! She daily rose early and cooked for the whole family before they went out to work. During their lunch break, the couple read the Bible and prayed together. They listened to Bible verses and messages while in their van driving and also in their workplace. They prayed in tongue all their time when not disturbing others in their workplace. They even joined our 5am prayer and Bible study time! And they witnessed the amazing mighty work of God in their lives.

To cut the story short, God did not fail this couple. Several Christians pooled together a small capital for him to start off. After praying with his wife on the first day in their van by a roadside with no direction where to find work, he called a lamp shop owner, who offered him some small jobs, installing lamps for a new house. While installing lamps the house owner came and asked him whether he could do plumping, and offered him more jobs etc. Many other new house owners got to know him and got him to do their houses as well and so on. His business boomed until a point when he and his wife could not handle on their own. The rest is history. Their three daughters accepted Christ, did well in college, and now have stable jobs. Family relationship vastly improved from anger, frustrations, guilt and accusations, to a warm and loving and mutually respectful and united family. The last I heard is that they have moved to their own new house!*

*As illustration of how they advanced in prosperity, I would add that when I first took up their case, they were living in the man’s parents’ rented home together with the man’s siblings and their respective families. It was a very oppressive environment. His wife and children lived in anger, shame and frustrations. After the counseling and his conversion to Christ, the man started his electrical contract business and experienced God’s shower of blessings in income. He and his own family moved into a rented house near our church. Within two years they were able to buy their own house near our prayer and Bible study small house group, and continued to enjoy financial increase in income. When the three daughters grow up (each has a stable job), and need more space, the family bought a new, big house in a newly developed township, with good and fast accessibility to highways, a place suitable for the man’s business. The amazing fact is that God always gives him the best deals in terms of the renting and later buying of houses. The grace of God is so real in his life after he accepted Christ!

They put God in their family and everything transformed into abundance and harvest (John 10:10).

A summary of what he and his wife did right:

  1. They remain faithful in their belief and trust in God after hearing the Good News.
  2. They apply what they learn from Bible teachings and revelation from reading the Bible themselves.
  3. They put God first over their own lives.
  4. They focus on prayers (often in spirit) even as they work.
  5. In practical matter, they paid off their debts, including the loans given by the fellow Christians who helped them to start off their business.
  6. They are trustworthy and really do a good job and give the clients quality output at a competitive price. Most of their businesses come from words of mouth referrals from satisfied clients, many of whom give them repeat business. For example, they often give the clients the better and less costly options, explaining the pros and cons and give their recommendation.
  7. They responded to the Lord’s prompting by faith. For example, after they began to prosper and bought their own house at t a big discount, they decided to stop the business, sold the house at half the market value to the man’s siblings so that they can take care of their parents, and took two years off, to serve full time in a ministry in another town where they continued to seek and learn more about God.
  8. They met with and overcame adversities and adversaries without wavering in their faith in God: For examples, several life threatening accidents, unresolved issues with co-workers and superiors, and very difficult issues with their children who became disillusioned and discouraged.

After returning from their ministry mission they had to start afresh from the beginning in their previous business. They lived humbly in a rented house, and took the road in their old van like old time. I met them sometimes and they never uttered one word of complaints. Soon, I heard that they were prospering again, and moving into a newer, bigger house in a much better location. Their story reminds me of the Lord’s promise, making His people the head, and not the tail.

Deuteronomy 28:12-14 New Living Translation (NLT)

12 The Lord will send rain at the proper time from his rich treasury in the heavens and will bless all the work you do. You will lend to many nations, but you will never need to borrow from them. 13 If you listen to these commands of the Lord your God that I am giving you today, and if you carefully obey them, the Lord will make you the head and not the tail, and you will always be on top and never at the bottom. 14 You must not turn away from any of the commands I am giving you today, nor follow after other gods and worship them.

Application: Ask yourself, “what can I do best?” Do an inventory of what you can do. Find out what people still need at this time. I find that most people still need food, and basic amenities. A woman who used to sell her foodstuff at a stall now makes them in her house and deliver them to her regular clients. Many other entrepreneurs are doing the same. Home catering and delivery have become a norm. A highly qualified couple who lost their highly paid corporate executive jobs in the city moved back to the man’s parents’ home in a smaller town and started a thriving home catering and delivery business. They also do homeschooling for their young children.

These are just some simple examples. In my next post I will discuss in greater details on how small businesses can survive by thinking outside the box and doing what aligns with the recent year’s changes out there, that affect the whole mankind except a few elites.

Here is a preview of the key success clue: We are in the world but not of the world. Jesus has promised a unique positioning and protection this way.

An epic tragedy: two men, one woman, treachery and falsehood vs loyalty and integrity

She is a beautiful, wise, good, wealthy, royal woman. But her life is full of tragedies and sadness. She was forcibly taken and violated by a trusted family friend. Her loyal and heroic godly husband was betrayed and murdered by his best friend and superior. Her grandfather and father ended up in the enemy’s camp because of what their trusted king and friend did to their family…but God gives grace to her, a woman with no say and no power to do anything except to submit in silent anger in those dark ages of women. God preserves her brilliant and good son for her, and makes him one of the most successful and noteworthy kings in history! Her husband, the loyal godly warrior is vindicated. His name is placed alongside the king in the lineage of Jesus the Messiah!

AAAA watchman

An Epic tragedy: centered on a beautiful wealthy royal woman’s family story. Like a Greek drama. But it is written in the Bible.

Her name? Queen Bathsheba. Surprise! I have decided to write about this most misunderstood extraordinary woman of destiny. In Proverbs 31:1 the author declared that it is “the sayings of King Lemuel, which his mother taught him.” Proverbs 31:1-9 records an exhortation from a godly queen mom to her son, the king, on chastity, justice, mercy and temperance required of a good king.

Her famous son, Solomon, composed three thousand proverbs, and a thousand and five songs. (1 Kings 4:32) It is believed that the Solomon is King Lemuel here and the mother is Bathsheba, the most misunderstood queen (and queen-mom), an obedient daughter, a good wife, and a wise mother. Solomon is known as the wisest and richest man ever lived. No doubt he inherited some…

“The eagle that soars in the upper air does not worry itself how it is to cross rivers.”

Carol Purves -writer

I came across this biography writer through watching a video on the story of Gladys Aylward (See the end of this blog for the video*). Here is her book. Do read.

A missionary in the 1930s, Gladys Aylward, 24 February 1902 – 3 January 1970, was a British-born evangelical Christian missionary to China. In 1938, the region was invaded by Japanese forces, and Aylward led more than 100 orphans to safety over the mountains, despite being wounded, personally caring for them (and converting many to Christianity.

GLADYS AYLWARD – A LIFE FOR CHINA

by Carol Purves

ISBN 978 1 909281 49 3

This is the story of Gladys Aylward, a missionary to China in the 1930’s and the 1940’s.  Immortalised through the film The Inn of the Sixth Happiness starring Ingrid Bergman.  Gladys set out to China alone, trusting in God to supply all her needs. Her call was to China alone, no other country of service would do for her.

Often her life was in danger. She received a bullet wound to her shoulder while fleeing Japanese soldier. She encountered wolves in the forest in Siberia, fortunately she only heard them, she did not see them.

Nearly a hundred children were led by her across the mountains to safety, while she was the only adult to guide them. Her story eventually became known world-wide as she lectured in many English speaking countries. Being only five foot tall was no hinderance to her determined nature.

Interesting facts – Did you know Gladys travelled all the way from the east side of London to deepest China wearing two left shoes?

Did you know this intrepid missionary is now buried in Taiwan, which in her day was known as Formosa?

Read all about it in this book.

About Carol

It is said that everyone has a book in them.  To date Carol Purves has discharged five of her internal books.  Her main genre is Christian biographies.  What could be better;  most people are interested in people.  We like to know how they tick (or in these cases how they ‘ticked’), their successes are ours and their failings show our perceived superior wisdom.

Carol is a freelance writer, former teacher, secretary and member and former committee member of the Association of Christian Writers, (an orginazation which did most to set her on the path of being a writer.)  Living only 9 miles from the Scottish Border it was inevitable that she should join the Fellowship of Scottish Christian Writers, (though being a Sassenach she is in the minority in her membership).

A taste of her blog: “Crisis of Confidence”

Carol PurvesCarol’s Blog 

Maybe I’m not alone. Things that I used to do with confidence, I now am afraid to do. I used to drive happily anywhere in the country, I now hesitate to just drive into the city. (not that anything is open when I get there). I used to answer the telephone without a thought, now I hesitate wondering if it is bad news or someone needing encouragement I cannot give . (or even a cold call. I’ve just been interrupted yet again as I type) I used to greet everyone I met with a smile and cheery word, now I cross the road in case of infection. (Not that they can see my smile behind my mask anyway)

It is no wonder that you, me and the rest of the world are suffering a crisis of confidence. Everything we knew as normal and acceptable has been stripped away. With fake news and scaremongers we can’t believe in anything or trust anyone.

What we need is somebody who will absolutely not let us down. Something we can rely on without fail. Then our crisis of confidence will become an assurance of confidence.

Gladys Aylward: The Little Woman Paperback – 1 Jun. 1970

by Gladys Aylward  (Author)

A solitary woman. A foreign country. An unknown language. An impossible dream? No.

With no mission board to support or guide her, and less than ten dollars in her pocket, Gladys Aylward left her home in England to answer God’s call to take the message of the gospel to China. With the Sino-Japanese War waging around her, she struggled to bring the basics of life and the fullness of God to orphaned children. Time after time, God triumphed over impossible situations, and drew people to Himself. The Little Woman tells the story of one woman’s determination to serve God at any cost. With God all things are possible!

A true story of a determined missionary, Gladys Aylward: The Little Woman will challenge you to bold and expectant faith.

A SUCCESS SECRET many Christian bloggers want to know: what drives more readership to your Christian blogs? There are 2.4 billion people who profess to be Christians*. When I googled the phrase “Christian Blogs 2021” what appeared on screen is this “About 153,000,000 results”! The phrase “Christian blogs WordPress” generated “13,100,000” results. The question is what makes your blog stand out in real “readership” compared to the millions out there?

Today this watchman for God looks at my old WordPress blogs record. My own top ten list. What did online seekers search over the last decade and found my blogs? I list the following for those who are interested in the spiritual and biblical and prophetic.

new series “businesses 2021 and beyond”—success stories: young banker from ranks, woman manager with elite background

In our previous three interviews on how small entrepreneurial businesses can succeed, we have briefly touched on how business model has evolved from growth-in-size driven, with standardization and automation of procedures, system, machine, and centralized control, to small, individualistic, creative and back to the human-relational-client-centered model. We have given real live examples on entrepreneurs who do what they do best and their clients pay for the quality and value they put in. “Personal touch” is expected and valued, and this is timeless. Today we will touch on some prerequisites for such successes, with a consultant named AJ.

The goal of the blogs posted here is to present some thoughts for readers to search out and do their own research and find information that are relevant to their situation. The acronym M stands for the organizer, AJ stands for the invited interviewee and P stand for anyone of the participant(s).

M: Good day, sir AJ, thank you for your kind participation in this program. As you know, the objective of this conversation is to find out how to do well as a small business in 2021, and beyond. In today’s scenario many small people are without a stable employment or trade engagements with the income they used to receive before the onset of the government policies which impacted many businesses and industries. We would like to know more how the small people can turn around this situation and make a decent living for themselves and their families, and even their previous staff. Is academic education a must for corporate success? Does academic qualifications from a good university guarantee one a good job and promotions? Does that mean those without a good academic qualification just have to become an entrepreneur in some kind of trades?

transgender issues: concerning our children

About our children. This is for mothers. And all women.

https://www.breitbart.com/health/2021/02/25/watch-rand-paul-hammers-bidens-transgender-nominee-child-surgery-sterlization/

Sen. Rand Paul hammered President Joe Biden’s transgender nominee for a top position at the Department of Health and Human Services.

Paul, a Kentucky doctor, pressed nominee Rachel Levine about the danger to children of “transgender” therapies. The dangers include bone-damaging drugs, sterilization, voice changes, and cosmetic surgery of the genitals. Paul compared the surgeries to primitive female genital mutilation, dubbed FGM. (Paul is right.)

Levine is an advocate for transgender medical procedures, and dodged the questions with a canned response:Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions

“How can we justify having someone in charge of health and human services who doesn’t understand basic biology?” responded Erin Brewer, a cofounder of Partners for Ethical Care. She told Breitbart News:

I’m very concerned that we’re having someone who’s in a position of authority, who’s going to be making policies for this country, who doesn’t seem to understand that  … when there’s a disconnect between the body and the brain, you need to get the brain in connection with the body because you can’t change somebody’s sex.

Critics are slamming Levine for touting and publicizing a January 2020 study that declared puberty-blocking drugs are beneficial for young children. The study was subsequently criticized by multiple authors.

NB: My decision to post this article is led by the Spirit. Please note that I do not condemn anyone who has been through the surgical reassignment. Jesus does not condemn you. However, I am obliged to urge you (an adult who is considering but has not yet done it) to get all information from those who have been through the process decades ago and are now living with the consequences. I believe that as an adult we are responsible for our own choices and the consequences of our choices. But it is not wise to let the children choose at a time when the natural development of their mental/cognitive conceptual abilities and physiological development are not mature enough to make the choices. There are many issues involved, such as, social, economic, relationship, security, psychological, mental, biological, physiological, cultural, professional, religious, community, and many other factors pertinent to make a living in this world. A child needs to grow up, be exposed to, and experience the many factors and facets of living before they can make this kind of choice.

REGRET is the NUMBER TWO issue we have to face all our lives when we make a choice as irreversibly colossal as this type. The NUMBER ONE issue is as stated in this article quoted above. There are many regrets in life that can be reversed. But this type of REGRET CANNOT GO AWAY. Sad to say. However, if a person has a regret that does not go away, please do not despair. I am a believer in a good God, and I know He is always available you for any kind of regret. Jesus has never turned away anyone.

The table turned: If Dinah’s conversation was recorded

I continue to look inside the world of Dinah, the rich young teenager whose life was ruined at sixteen. If she could speak what would she speak of? If I were Dinah, what would I be asking my parents and/or siblings? Here is a list of the crucial questions I imagine she had asked.

As a young kid of seven, starting to live in Canaan for the first time, she was confined inside the well secured camp of Jacob and family. For company, Dinah had eleven brothers, her dad Jacob, mom Leah, two aunts (two maidservants whom Jacob married) Zilpah and Bilhah. Dinah could have had other half sisters from the two maidservants (Genesis 46:7), but they are unnamed and there was no record of her interaction with them. I would ask this question:

Dinah: Mom and dad, I have no friends. Can I go outside and play with the neighbors’ girls (in the next village)? They came near our camp the other day and smiled and greeted me when I looked through the fence. They said I can go out and play with them. They are so happy and friendly. I can hear them playing games and laughing loudly at the well nearby! Please!

Mom and dad: No, Dinah, you cannot go out. We have newly moved here. We do not know them or their parents at all. It is very dangerous for a young kid like you to go outside the camp. Your brothers are learning how to work in the field and taking care of the animals. We are all busy working, Dinah. There are many mouths to feed and many people are dependent on us to take care of them. Dinah, you are just a little girl. The answer is no. you cannot go out on your own.

As a young teenager, Dinah tried again to persuade her parents: Mom and dad, you know I have been making friends with those girls in the nearby village. They always come to the gate and talk to me. We have known each other for some years now. We have even exchanged gifts on festive days. They like me a lot. I like them too and they are my good friends. May I go out to see their homes? They have told me a lot of interesting things they do. They are nice people. They said tomorrow is their annual festival day to celebrate their god’s birthday. It will be great fun. I do not think they will do anything to harm me. They promise to take me there and bring me home within the same day. Or can you ask one of my brothers to accompany me?

Mom and dad: No, Dinah, you cannot go out on your own with strangers. They are strangers to me and your dad. Even your brothers do not mix with them. We do not eat their food or practice their religion. We have our own God and our own worship. We cannot go to their religious festival or eat their food. NO, none of your brothers can accompany you, Dinah. They don’t go for such stuff. Your dad and I do not allow them to attend too.

Finally, when Dinah was sixteen, she decided to have her own way. She arranged with her girl friends from Shechem secretly to take her there one day without her parents’ knowing. Her dad and brothers were busy at the field and her mom was busy with the kitchen. Nobody was guarding the gate and she went out wearing the clothes of one of the female servants who fetch water from the well early in the morning. No one noticed her as everyone was occupied with their duties. The young women from Shechem waited nearby at the well and quickly hid Dinah in a basket and carried her off to the sinful town of Shechem.

That was how Dinah was carried into the trap of the son of the chief, who was also named Shechem, who had been stalking her for years and paying those women to make friends with Dinah, the rich young beautiful princess from Haran. His scheme paid off. But he had to pay with his own life too, and the lives of his father and the whole male community of that town. And Dinah was irrevocably ruined too.

In summary, what has this story achieved? It is not really a story about two persons. It is a story of two nations: the nation of Israel and the surrounding nations. Dinah and Shechem were just caught in it.

Do I have any conclusion? What is the moral of the story? I believe the conclusion is in the history. It has already been written. The story of Dinah happened around 1900BC, at least 4000 years ago, and preserved in tact all these thousands of years. With it, the nation of Israel has been preserved. Other nations (and people groups) became extinct. Dinah might not have known or believed the importance of the instructions given by her parents when she was sixteen. I would like to believe that she realized it and understood the larger impact as a called nation, when she followed her parents to Egypt later at forty-five. She was actually the first Abrahamic woman whose purity was violated, like her nation (and people) when they went astray. When they finally understood and returned to the God who first called them, they fulfilled their God-ordained destiny as God had promised their ancestor, Abraham. And they have been preserved.

What happened to Woman’s Right: can women be canceled by words/terminology?

Notes on 2021-02-20 Honestly, we can see where the Western world has gone, like the song, a point of no return? The words “man” and “woman” are being canceled. Woman no longer has the protection of being a woman. Man no longer has the protection of being a man. Neither man nor woman counts. They have become a thing. I am thankful that my dog remains a dog and not a thing without an identity. She even has a name in the family.

I shudder when I try to imagine a world being run by ALL women, or ALL men, or ALL THING, like in a horror movie of a fearful fantasy story book. Being not a mere thing myself, I know no matter how I might endeavor to try, I cannot become completely a man or a woman, at will, regardless of all my abilities and achievements relating to that gender, for whatever length of time. Being a woman I know how women operate. And I disagree with many of them. Sometimes I lament that women are not like men. I also lament that men like to be women because they imagine that it is a better species. I lament that women like to take on the onerous tasks of men. I lament that men want to swap places with women. I lament that women look down on women. I lament that women look down upon men and yet want to take over man’s role. I lament that men lay back and let the women take over and take the sole charge of earning a living for the family. I lament when I see many women and children abandoned by men and the broken down families are run by single mothers. I lament when I see many boys running aimlessly and forlornly in the dark streets looming with evil, without a father to be a role model of light. And so on…

Yes, sisters, when men remain as men, there are advantages as a woman. You will not be the first to be conscripted to the frontline to fight a physical war. At least the other fifty percent of the world (i.e. the men) must go to war first before the remaining half of the world will need to do so in the event of a war between nations. In the WWII, many women took part in the backroom support back in their home countries because the able-bodied men have gone to war. The home country had to depend on a lot of women to continue economic production, to sustain its survival. They won war with the men by complementary work. No woman should take the lay back position even when we are not at the front line, sisters. I use the term complimentary to show there is equal importance in both roles.

Physiological and biological differences:

The following statistics illustrates what I am talking about on very basic differences between a man and a woman: [quoted from: https://law.duke.edu/sports/sex-sport/comparative-athletic-performance/%5D]

“Know this beyond a reasonable doubt: there is an average 10-12% performance gap between elite males and elite females.  The gap is smaller between elite females and non-elite males, but it’s still insurmountable and that’s ultimately what matters. The number of men and boys beating the world’s best women in the 100 and 400 meters is far from the exception. It’s the rule. 

Just in the single year 2017, Olympic, World, and U.S. Champion Tori Bowie’s 100 meters lifetime best of 10.78 was beaten 15,000 times by men and boys.  (Yes, that’s the right number of zeros.) The same is true of Olympic, World, and U.S.  Champion Allyson Felix’s 400 meters lifetime best of 49.26.  Just in the single year 2017, men and boys around the world outperformed her more than 15,000 times.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

What about non-physiological and biological aspects? There are research studies and schools of thoughts on many aspects in the social-economic aspects and roles on the subject of whether genders do make any generic differences. So I am not going there. What I will mention here is based on my own opinion and personal experience. I have had both genetic men and women as bosses, colleagues, subordinates and clients (customers/suppliers) etc. There are performers and non-performers in job in both sexes in terms of colleagues and subordinates and clients. In terms of bosses, I have found that women can be overtly aggressive, or passively aggressive, as if to cover up their own personal feeling of inadequacies. It often takes a woman to detect and uncover another woman’s hidden strategies, what she is really saying, subtle manipulations, and longstanding emotional grudges, un-forgiveness, and even vindictiveness for the “wrongs” or “being slighted” they deemed to have happened. Men bosses were comparatively more “magnanimous” and capable of saying what they really meant. They would lay it on the table and sort it out fast and be done with it. Which pattern would you prefer in a boss? I personally prefer bosses with rational problem solving skill, specific and to the point pertaining an issue at the time, instead of generalizing the matter to become an emotive irrational attack on the person. Of course I have met some petty-minded, highly personalized, emotive, cowardly, and clingy “men” as well. I am not condemning or generalizing or stereotyping a whole gender. It’s just that in my personal experience that happened to be the case. Looking at some of the current women who appear to run a country, for example, I do marvel at whether it is indeed an established pattern in this world.

Forgive me for being honest, I do not think that a drama show can save the world. No drama please when you deal with the important thing regarding the fate of a nation or a people.

What about the label?

I am glad I am not a thing, regardless the label may be stuck on me artificially. God has created me and programmed His design in me which cannot be changed no matter how a group of “whoever-in-power-for-the-time-being” together labelling may change as they might fancy. I am sticking to this blog being named for women. Do I favor women because I dedicate one blog to women? My answer is, I am. Not because I am a woman, but because I would like to give some silent women a voice. silent women past, present, and future.

Bible verses

Genesis 1:27 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. 28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. 29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. 30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so. 31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

Giving Dinah a voice: a rich teenager caught in the evil of lust, rape, anger, deception, greed, murder, and family conflict

This blog is about women, to give a voice to those who cannot speak for themselves. Today we study a woman who carried a stigma, apparently having been robbed of all chances for happiness since her teen life. Someone else recorded her story. Dinah, a teenager of a very wealthy family, was caught in the evil of lust, rape, anger, deception, greed, murder, and family conflict. There was no record of how Dinah felt about her situation. I have pieced together a more complete story for my readers to ponder upon. What is the purpose? The apostle Paul says, “These things happened to them as examples for us. They were written down to warn us who live at the end of the age. 12 If you think you are standing strong, be careful not to fall.” (1 Corinthians 10:11-12) I believe many women want to know why such a tragedy could occur. We live in a similarly perilous time today. We want to let our daughters speak and hear them carefully before it is too late.

Who is Dinah? (Genesis 30:21, and chapter 34) The only daughter born of Jacob and Leah. She has six older brothers from the same parents. Her father Jacob angered his brother Esau, and fled to his uncle’s place for refuge at the age of 77. He worked for Laban for twenty years before he could return to his parents’ home in Canaan. He married Leah and Rachel at the age of 84. Leah gave birth to six boys before she had Dinah. (Genesis 30:21) Dinah was born when Jacob was 90 years old. Dinah would be at the most seven years old when Jacob took his family back to Canaan.

Dinah’s life was scantily recorded in the Bible, but we do get to read a significant, rather tragic event that she encountered. The family had ten boys (four of whom were born of two maidservants) before Dinah was born. Soon after her birth, Jacob’s second wife Rachel gave birth to a boy, Joseph. After Jacob brought his family back to Canaan, he first dwelled at Succoth, and later, settled at Shechem, where he probably lived for eight years. After Dinah’s tragedy at Shechem, the family moved to Hebron, the home of Abraham and Isaac (the grandfather and father of Jacob).

What was Dinah’s tragedy? Briefly, she was around sixteen at that time. One day she went to visit the Canaanite young women. The local chief’s son, Shechem, saw her, seized her and raped her. After that she was kept there. Her father and brothers heard about the incident. Shechem and his father tried to negotiate a marriage deal,  in fact a commercial transaction motivated by greed because Jacob was a very rich man, as of the custom of that time. Jacob’s sons responded in anger and deception, by getting the two and all their male subjects to agree to circumcision. On the third day when all the men were still sore, Simeon and Levi (in their early twenties) killed all the males and took their sister Dinah back to Jacob’s camp. That was the end of Dinah’s story. The Bible recorded that later during the famine, when her father took their family to Egypt, Dinah was also with them (Genesis 46:15). She was 45 year old by then. She was still living with her own parents. Whilst  there were records of her brothers’ descendants there was none for her. It appeared she remained unmarried and childless.

The key persons involved on the side of Jacob and family. What did they do right or wrong? How and Why?

Family Religion and Spiritual Belief: Jacob is the grandson of Abraham, a man called by God to start a new nation of a people of God and they are to bless the whole world by their adherence to God’s way on earth. Abraham had to leave his father’s idolatry religious practice. Abraham had a relationship with God and taught his family members about God, and the moral (holiness) standards God required of them, as a people separated for God. Jacob learned all these from young from his parents. Isaac and Rebecca made sure that Jacob marry a woman from his own people (back home). Abraham lived until Jacob was fifteen years old. So Jacob would have been taught by Abraham as well about the way of God. Jacob had married a devout woman, Leah, who left idolatry and followed Jacob’s God. They would have taught the children and practiced this Abrahamic religion too.

The Canaanite religion, values and customs: The Hittites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites were described as immoral and abominable in the eyes of God —e.g. their practicing of idolatry, immorality, like bestiality, incest, and sacrificing children to the gods, low regard for human lives, encouraging promiscuity, murder, and anything that promote material, physical gratification and human pleasure, were damaging to children. They ignored the highest values in the family and the community: love, loyalty, purity, peace and security. Girls and women were mere commodities for commercial transactions.

The sons of Jacob: Simeon and Levi. These two were older than Dinah by five or six years. So they were teenagers when they followed Jacob back to Canaan. When they took vengeance for their sister, they were young adults of 21-22 years old. Whilst they have grown up among the locals in both Haran and Canaan, being of a large family of boys, they were able to have their work and leisure activities together and be a close support for each other within their clan. However, when the children were young and susceptible to outside influences, Jacob chose to stay at Shechem for eight years instead of going back to Hebron, where his father Isaac had settled. So his sons actually missed out being taught by Isaac while they were growing up.

Dinah was the only girl and the second youngest of her siblings with the same parents. She grew up in Canaan, with only her mother, Leah, aunt Rachel, and the two maidservants whom Isaac married, as her role models and social support. Leah, the strong godly woman who managed a big household was fully occupied. There is no record that Dinah was forbidden from making friends with the local Canaanite girls and women. She seemed to have considerable freedom and was allowed to go out of her father’s camp freely. While the brothers were all working in the fields, Dinah was free to roam about, visit friends, and choose her own childhood and teenage companions.

Dinah’s Predicament: She was eligible to be married as soon as she was able to bear children. In ancient times, girls were expected to be virgins when they got married—and according to Deuteronomy 22:21, could even be put to death if they were found not to be—men were allowed to marry multiple women. The local Canaanite promiscuous immoral custom and values were damaging to a young girl like her. She was inadvertently caught in the evil of lust, rape, anger, deception, greed, murder, and family conflict. Was it her fault? Was it her parents’ fault?

Inter-Marriage with Outsiders Prohibited by God: Jacob and family were following Abraham’s God-fearing teaching. Abraham, Isaac and Jacob set the marriage example. Any proposal of intermarriage between Dinah, a Jewish young woman, with an idolatry Canaanite was prohibited. In those days, as soon as a girl reached her puberty she would be eligible to be married off. So, why did Jacob and Leah not marry off Dinah to a suitable man within Abraham’s clan? There was no answer. The Canaanite Shechem was allowed to marry multiple women and he lusted for Dinah. Dinah would have been just one of the many concubines if Jacob had consented to a marriage between them, assuming that Shechem had proposed before taking her by force. He could have been stalking her and thus was able to seize her when she went outside her father’s camp. There was no record that Jacob had ever contemplated or consented to go against what Abraham and Isaac had taught him about God or not caring about Dinah at all as his God-given daughter.

Parenting Issue: Knowing the local abominable custom and the vulnerability of Dinah, their only daughter, Jacob and Leah did not take appropriate preventive and protective measure. Why? It does not make sense that the godly couple allowed their precious daughter to go outside the camp to mix with the local girls who lived by a permissive culture, while knowing that the men out there practiced immorality and religious belief with no esteem for human lives, which would put her virginity and even her life in danger. Were they practicing laissez faire where their daughter was concerned? Were their sons not concerned when they noticed this double standard on the part of their parents? Was Dinah a spoilt brat? Many questions demand answers.

What happened to Dinah after that? there was no record of how Dinah spent her remaining life after sixteen. The fact that she followed her father and elder brothers and their families to Egypt during the famine would indicate that she remained unmarried at the age of 45. Jacob was a very rich man and Dinah would have had a comfortable life at her parents’ home. Her brothers who honored their parents would have treated her well, as their little sister. Her name Dinah means Judge, Judgment, derived from the verb to judge or govern. Was she transformed to become a woman who was wise and gifted to counsel and act as a judge among other younger women to help them to make the right decisions about the important things in their lives? The male equivalent name is Daniel and it means: God is my judge. In a way, Dinah can claim that too. No one can judge her. God is her judge.

Genesis 46:15 These were the sons of Leah and Jacob who were born in Paddan-aram, in addition to their daughter, Dinah. The number of Jacob’s descendants (male and female) through Leah was thirty-three. (Jacob and descendants, including Dinah, went to Egypt together as one big family/clan.)

Notes for further thoughts: What Dinah went through is not an ancient one-off case. It is about young girls being neglected and abused, throughout history, by a system of the society and the prevailing culture they are raised and live in. It still happens today, to Christians and non-Christians. What are Christians going to do about it? For example, when did the modern world first treat premarital sex, and adultery as norm? When did the modern world first glorify and reward richly those producers/entertainer influencers who produced and acted such roles in front of the whole world’s audience? There are countless questions to be asked and answered. Instead of the question of “when”, I believe the more pertinent question is “why”. Why are there many people who support such counter-values against the human race? Women occupy 50% of the human race. Why are 50% of the human race being silently canceled through degradation and depravity?

women’s internet club: The Millennial Influencers Squad* (start-up session)

The things that I do for internet marketing! And all for my English Lord boss. Admittedly he pays well. “Freeze! Nobody move! You are surrounded!” That is the last thing I hear before I realize someone is behind me and a gigantic shadow looms over me. That is how my dog Gracie and I end up being held hostage by the six young women named Pyra 1-6 from M16 Influencers Training Inc at the Dronesville park. In line with social distancing, someone uses a long plank to poke at us from the back and makes us move forward toward the direction of the former “hyperloopy” lab now deserted due to the year long locked down order. It is like the worst of movies of a somewhat shell-shocked nerd-to-be and an innocent nerdy mascot talking dog. “No talking!” The command is issued and we duly obey, not knowing what this group named M16 is likely to do next.

The building is not locked or has its door been opened by a remote control? Anyway we settle in a spacious and clean meeting hall. I am made to sit down at the far end of a very long conference table while Gracies is allowed to wait at a corner with her muzzle-mask still on. The women sit at the other end of the table, all wearing full-facial masks. Here is an excerpt (sample) of our conversation. P stands for P1-P6. Jr. stands for me, junior to my dad the senior nerd IJ.

P: As per our phone conversation previously, we are the new members of the Women’s Internet Club. You may describe us as the Millennial Influencers Squad* (In millennial language: it means a group of friends). Have you brought the application forms? Junior?

Jr: Yes, here they are. (Handing over the transparent folder of blank forms)

P: (speaks after a lapse of seconds of silence) What kind of ridiculous forms is this? Requiring my particulars about whether I own a pet (e.g. a dog) and whether the pet (dog) will be a participant on zoom meetings? I object to answering this privacy infringing question!

Jr: It is a compulsory question, miss.

P: Why?! Your justification has better be good! (All the other Ps clap in unison)

Jr: You see, miss, it’s a matter of logistics.

P: OK, if I answer yes, I have a bull dog, and yes, she is joining the zoom class. Is there any difference from saying no?

Jr: The difference will be the charges. We will count as two persons attending.

P: (All burst into laughters) Bruh? (meaning seriously) Aren’t you extra (over the top, dramatic behavior)? (This one talks millennial slang words)

Jr: Serious. Consider the extra efforts we have to make to accommodate a person with a pet (dog). Of course you may opt out for the pet. Put them in another room, or muzzle them and chain them up or whatever so they would not disrupt the classes.

P: (all burst into a thundering uproar until one manages to speak) mister! I am shook (confused or in utter disbelief) at the way that you throw shade (making a subtly mean comment about someone) on our pets!

Jr: My apology, miss. The crux of the matter is that we will count your pet as an individual paid participant and give the same treatment as we give you. ISN’T THAT POSITIVE?

P: Would we be given a separate session apart from the senior women’s club? I understand that there are twenty of them and all with their pets.

Jr: We can’t afford to do that at the v (very) nominal fee we are charging, miss. Shall we give it a try mixing with the existing group, who have some bougies (from higher class), and who is more like fam (a group of friends who feels more like family) first and see how we may develop?

P: (After completed the forms and paying up their fees) TBH (to be honest), we are here for an important purpose. We have no option.

Jr: Thank you for your honesty. May I be so bold to know what M16 stands for?

P: Anything you may imagine. This conversation is hereby canceled (To reject something because it’s no longer trendy or it’s become too ratchet.) You two may go now. See you at the next Internet Club meeting. Any advice on how we may present ourselves in the zoom?

Jr: Just EXPECT the GOAT (Greatest of all time), BE SNATCHED (attractive), and not Beat (to have a full face of makeup)! We are going live on a popular social media at the same time!

P: Dank! (really cool)

(To be continued)

new series “businesses 2021 and beyond” success stories: industrial cooling system, most expensive dessert etc.

most expensive dessert: edible bird nest

In our previous blog we posted an interview to find out how to do well as a small business in 2021, and beyond.  The business management senior consultant whom we name AJ has been through five decades of tremendous changes in the international business world, corporate, entrepreneurial, retail, and manufacturing, and lastly, consulting, and has studied and consulted small businesses, and facilitated small family businesses to thrive, grow, and even transformed into corporation that successfully competed against and replaced established large international companies. Today we continue with where we left off.

The acronyms M stands for the organizer, AJ stands for the invited interviewee and P stands for the participant(s).

M: Sir AJ, may we continue to the subject on how to do well as a small business in 2021 and beyond? In the previous session you have briefly touched on the historical evolvement of businesses from small to big and then reverted to small again. You also spoke of real life success cases of a cottage industry, a family retail business, and a primary doctor entrepreneur. You summed up that the key success factors are: 1. identify the product/service they can do best 2. ensure what the customers want 3. give them the quality and personal touch they want 3. keep the cost down and pass on the extra profit to individual customers, like added value. Are there any other kinds of small businesses/entrepreneurs that can similarly thrive and grow?…

Nameless Bible women: many “gentle lights without a name”

Evangelist Philip’s four prophetess virgin daughters

“Why are these women associated with well-known men, and with outstanding events not named? What is the reason behind their anonymity?” These are the questions some women may ask when they read Bible verses that mentioned certain women without mentioning their names. Instead, they are often described as the wives, daughters, or mothers of some men. Some are described merely by the tasks they perform. They are nameless and remain anonymous, although their tasks/actions have been recorded in history. Here is a list of these women (not exhaustive). I would encourage our readers to look up the Bible verses reference on some of them and see what have they done, good or bad. Make it a point to read some daily. Ask the Lord to reveal to you the lessons and applications behind their stories.

Nameless women in the Gospels

  1. Peter’s Wife
  2. Peter’s Mother-in-Law
  3. Woman with Issue of Blood (a woman of faith given recognition by Jesus)
  4. Jairus’ Daughter
  5. Jesus’ Sisters
  6. Herodias’ Daughter
  7. Syro-Phoenician Woman (a foreign woman who has faith in Jesus)
  8. Wife Sold for Debt
  9. Maids at Peter’s Denial
  10. Pilate’s Wife
  11. Women at Calvary (women who followed Jesus faithfully to the cross)
  12. Widow with Two Mites (woman praised by Jesus)
  13. Widow of Nain
  14. Woman Who Was a Sinner (Jesus has given recognition of her sacrifice for Him. Instead of condemning her, He granted her forgiveness of her sin)
  15. A Certain Woman’s Message
  16. Afflicted Daughter of Abraham
  17. Daughters of Jerusalem

in Joel 2:28-29 we read, “And it will come about after this that I will pour out My Spirit on all mankind; and your sons and daughters will prophesy. Your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions. And even on the male and female servants I will pour out My Spirit in those days.” The apostle Peter, in his sermon on the day of Pentecost, declared that what the people were witnessing, following the outpouring of the Spirit, was the very thing “spoken of through the prophet Joel” (Acts 2:16).

“There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus” (Galatians 3:28).

Acts 21:8-9 “On the next day we who were Paul’s companions departed and came to Caesarea, and entered the house of Philip the evangelist, who was one of the seven, and stayed with him. Now this man had four virgin daughters who prophesied.”
