“Can Women Preach?” – John and Lisa Bevere

“If GOD would have meant for women to be silent, He would not have given us a voice.” ~ Lisa Bevere

28  “And it shall come to pass afterward,
    that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh;
your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
    your old men shall dream dreams,
    and your young men shall see visions.
29 Even on the male and female servants
    in those days I will pour out my Spirit.
Joel 2:28-29 ESV

In the United States, the month of March has been designated as Women’s Month, so I thought it would befit the celebration to listen to this podcast by John and Lisa Bevere to clarify the misconception about women preaching in the local church.

Without having to sound the alarms or put up the spoiler alerts, I wanted to introduce this subject with the intent that we would all remember to read Scripture in the proper context which it was written. Simply said, certain phrases were used during a time (just as colloquials and common slang are readily used and culturally acceptable to us today) that spoke to certain groups in specific regions of the world.

I love the living example of our Savior when He walked the earth. Jesus was a table flipping radical that spoke of mercy, compassion and justice in a world that persecuted and turned their noses up at the marginalized. Jesus revealed Himself as Messiah first to a woman, invited women to sit and learn in a rabbinical setting, and appeared to women first immediately after His Resurrection.

I’d say that Jesus had and still has a heart for women seeking GOD.

Come and listen, be encouraged, Sister, to live out your calling to be exactly who you were designed to be by the power of the Master Creator Himself. Be blessed and go forth. You are called.

I love you to Heaven and Back, Girlfriend ~
