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

three famous first women: grace and second chance

Women in their best

woman 1: Eve

woman 2: Sarah

woman 3: Rebecca

Today we read aboutthree notable mothers who were given recognition by God and recorded in the Bible. For those who do not know, the Bible is a book of God written by God. The names and lives recorded are important. They are meant to be noted. (“All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16-17)

Eve, the first mother: She was the first mentioned. In terms of motherhood, she failed the first round. She and her husband Adam knew God intimately. Whilst they have taught the second son Abel about the way of God, and the proper sacrifice that pleased God, they did not manage to convince the elder son Cain to…

An Evanescent  rose. I took this picture in late November 2015 at Santa Cruz, CA. I have a soft spot for roses. Is it because of their beauty despite the thorns?

The woman movement and God, a testimony: my self-esteem which the world cannot touch

Some women are very angry. They decide to take matters into their own hands and walk down the street to make their voices heard. I know how it hurts or infuriates oneself when one feels that others are not listening, or worse, perhaps mocking or scoffing in their hearts. It hurts to be considered and … Continue reading The woman movement and God, a testimony: my self-esteem which the world cannot touch

Two godly housewives

It was an impossible situation, with no man qualified or brave enough to fight the domineering powerful enemy commander. The nation was subject to years of oppression, humility and subordination. In this desperate time, two notable housewives (both mothers and wives) stood up and defeated the enemy. It was incredible and yet it happened: They were Deborah, the prophetess-political leader of the nation, and Jael, a housewife who killed the enemy’s commander.

Women in their best

Today’s message is about two notable housewives (both mothers and wives): Deborah, the prophetess-political leader of the nation, and Jael, who killed the enemy’s commander.

In the history of the list of Israelite Judges (commanders) and their great exploits, there was a woman prophet-commander named Deborah. She ruled for forty years. Her life was interesting as she was proficient in a number of roles: the nation’s spiritual leader, the nation’s political leader, prophetess, strategist, military commander, national ruler, and also a housewife.

The following passage recorded her history briefly. I summarize below the significant events:

  1. Deborah knew how to hear God and align with the plan of God. She was courageous and knew her strength. She raised a victorious war against their powerful enemy and destroyed the enemy completely. God took care of the spiritual changes and she merely obeyed. She aligned with God. That was her key success factor. 
  2. She asked/assigned…
