Women teaching Men

In 1 Timothy 2:11: it tells us that a woman should learn in quietness and full submission.

For years man has being using this verse telling a woman she is not to minister or preach, for it was a man who is to be called a minister or pastor. Even still today most men still believe that women aren’t to teach. Some woman believe they are not to be a teacher or pastor and so forth.

Test the Spirit

Read the whole story you will see that the church of Corinthians  was out of order, no different then the church today; still out of order. 1 Corinthians 14:40 says “but everything should be done in a fitting and orderly way, and because in that church the women was out of order Timothy tells them that they must be still. It has nothing to do with women not preaching.

In scripture you will read how Priscilla was involved in teaching Apollos,
Acts 18:25-26, This man had been instructed in the way of the Lord; and being fervent in spirit, he spoke and taught accurately the things of the Lord, though he knew only the baptism of John. So he began to speak boldly in the synagogue. When Aquila and Priscilla heard him, they took him aside and explained to him the way of God more accurately. 

In  scripture you see that it was Mary who ran back to the disciples to tell them that Jesus is Alive. John 20:18 Mary Magdalene went to the disciples with the news: “I have seen the Lord!” And she told them that he had said these things to her.

have a blessed Friday everyone.

    1. You are welcome Debbie, for a long time I use to believe that women are not to teach, it’s amazing when you stop listening to people and get an understanding of the word for yourself.

  1. It is nothing but a blessing from God that I saw your facebook post today and decided to come to the cafe and read. Low and behold right here was my answer to my concern on women teaching and preaching, always thinking that it was not ok, and that we were to only go but so far. Thank you Desiray for the explanation of scripture well broken down. God bless you, truly a God send.

    1. Sister Betty you just blessed me what your words. God want us as women to go all the way. He never intended for us to go a short distance, man would like it if we went the short distance. God is and has used women. Amen. So keep teaching that words sis

  2. God used several women to do His work. He didn’t look at their gender. He looked at their hearts and their obedience to Him. Anyone can be used by God, as long as they make themselves available. And this world needs all the Godly teachers we can get!
