FAQ: 3.  WOMEN IN MINISTRY!  

Should they keep silent in the church, forbidden?
As well as many of the subjects of God, without the wisdom of God, they can be controversial.  This subject of women in the
ministry is known to be somewhat male chauvinistic. Just as well, super-powerful  women in the ministry can be a blessing to many
and have most definitely been to me. (If you read my special thanks home page, I list many !)  In the Bible, 1 Corinthians chapter
14:34 says  "Let your women keep silent in the churches, for they are not permitted to speak; but they are to be submissive, as the
law also says."  35 "And if they want to learn something, let them ask their own husbands at home; for it is shameful for women to
speak in church."  This chapter and these two verses cause much chauvinism and inner church debates due to the fact that enough
study on the subject is not indulged.  We will elaborate on the further study of understanding it a little later, but for now, let's
elaborate and clarify these two verses, so that men can not belittle God's gift in women and women can understand why God says
through Paul for them to keep quiet in the church.  


First let's ask the question what if a woman is not married and has no husband to ask? Does she have to be quiet? Does she have
to be silent in the church?  And who does she inquire questions from?  In a church of proper settings, there should be a staff of
teachers and educators, which is the third order of proper procedures a church should have.  1 Corinthians 12:28  "And God has
appointed these in the church: 1st apostles (to harvest people into the kingdom, THE KEY OF THE MEANING
"KINGDOM-WORKS" winning souls for God), 2nd prophets  (so that old flock and new can be edified with revelation of God's Holy
spirit and His power), and 3rd teachers (so that his people won't parish for lack of knowledge)."  Notice that all the other gifts after
that in the chapter, the order of the next  5 (miracles, gifts of healing, helps, administrations, varieties of tongues) requirements are
not in sequence. They are just the covenant blessings available by grace to the saved, once saved. 1st, 2nd and 3rd are
sequenced for a reason. 1st, if they are not saved, they can't possibly be in his covenant worthy of  the blessings of the blood of the
lamb. 2nd, once saved, if they have not been shown the power of the supernatural through prophecy, it's hard for them to believe
the revelation works of the Holy Spirit. And 3rd,  if they're not saved and have not the revelation insight and power of the  Holy Spirit,
the Bible says  teaching is in vain because  the un-saved WILL NOT understand the mysteries of the Bible, the true word of God, let
alone the saved who ARE  able and trying to grasp insight by the Holy Spirit. This is why winning souls is the key of
Kingdom-works. Seek ye 1st the kingdom of God and all shall be added unto you. ORDER!  Order is also the key to unlocking this
mystery subject and the answer to above question is: the educators and elders should be asked in bible study classes, if a woman  
is without husband.  Most churches do have bible study, if not they should, it's the 3rd order. (Teachers; the saved must be
educated) Men are the foundation of their family and should study the word daily so that the Holy Spirit can give them revelation of
any question asked by his wife.  If not, women should ask the pastor after a sermon and not blurt out interruptions of objectives,
comments, opinions or attention to them acts of agreement. A strong spiritual woman likes to let it be known. It's her nature to do
so. A woman is born knowing that men SHOULD BE attracted to a strong spiritual woman. God designed her that way to be an
asset to man since the day of Adam and Eve.  Men, get strong! Get over your insecurities and build up your woman. Build up
yourself so that you are able to answer her questions just as the Bible says. If you don't, YOU give way  to the adversary to work on
her un-clean nature and you will find her disrespectful and unsubmissive. And then YOUR  un-clean nature will show itself and have
you belittling your woman, your gift from God.  You'll be trying use scripture to manipulate her as your slave allwhile developing a
sense of chauvinism and at the same time blaming God, just as Adam did when Eve bit the forbidden fruit. (God, you gave me this
woman !!!)  Why did  Adam blame Eve and God?  Because, just as we today have lack of knowledge in understanding ORDER, so
did he. Don't feel bad men, Adam was perfect just minutes  before God told him it was his fault because he failed to keep his
woman in ORDER.


Men, you are the head and foundation of the household and it is your responsibility to keep it  in ORDER Gods way,  not yours! You
are to love and respect your woman just as you love Christ, says the Bible. You don't disrespect and cuss God out when you loose
it, rather you give him a piece of your mind tactfully and with some degree of respect. If not, you will learn his grace is sufficient but
repentance is mandated!  Men if you learn to love your wife in this manner, God has created her to become submissive because
you communicated with her instead of dictating to her. She is your blessing, not your door-mat, by God's design and you are her
strong foundation not wimp, by God's design. Let me give you an example of the proof:  #1, Eve gave way to temptation and was
lured to the forbidden tree (nothing happened), 2nd, Eve engaged in conversation with the tempting serpent (nothing happened),
3rd, Eve fell short and picked the forbidden fruit (nothing happened), 4th,Eve bit the fruit, found it to be delicious and thought,"can't
be that bad, it taste too good." (nothing happened), 5th, Eve thought since it tasted too good to be wrong, let me tempt my man to
try it, he'll have to agree" (nothing happened), 6th, she, even after he said, I told you not to touch the tree and why did you pick it and
eat of it, still dominated, tempted and manipulated him into tasting it (nothing happened), 7th, Adam fell short to the woman's
sweet, seductive, persuasive nature. Now keep in mind they were PERFECT,  sin-free, including her "woman getting her way
nature" by God's design. She was this way prior to the next event.  Adam bit the  fruit - - -  SUDDENLY !!!  The whole world
changed to as we know it today and men are still blaming  Eve, due to their lack of knowledge of Gods ORDER.


Lets talk about Gods ORDER.   In the day of the church of Corinth, woman by nature in the ways mentioned above, would rudely
interrupt service and the flow of the anointing when the minister was speaking just as it is done today.  Woman, the will of God is for
you to be respectful, submissive, non-interrupting nor attention drawing to yourself (Lady-like), while in church service. It is
interrupting the flow of the Holy Spirit while He is moving through  the minister's speaking anointing ... and yes,  that minister can be
MAN or WOMAN according to the word of God!  Women, God has created mankind in his image and when He speaks of man or
says man, he generally speaks of mankind as women and men.  And sometimes, that begins a cause of misunderstanding.  God
knows man's nature and woman's nature and in His Word, He places ORDER for men and for women.  Let's keep the Word  
ORDER in mind, because it's the key to this subject.  This may begin to sound chauvinistic, but truly I tell you, it is not.  It's the Word
of God and you are welcome to debate it with Him, it's His Word.  But I encourage you to read it to further your understanding.
When Jesus spoke anywhere in the Bible about any subject talking to us  man and woman, he mostly said "he",  but not always. In
John 3-16 Jesus said  "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son, that whoever believes in Him should not
perish but have everlasting life." He said "whoever!"  That means all sinners, drunks, murderers, pimps, prostitutes, gays, drug
addicts, stealers, male or female!  2 verses later Verse 18, he said "He who believes in Him, is not condemned; But he who does
not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God."  Now does that
apply to only men since Jesus has said
he 3 times? NO!!  Jesus is speaking  in terms of God's ORDER out of the foundation of
man predicating that Adam came first and woman came out of man. Watch this, all 12 disciples were men. All who were chosen to
do Gods work that had any life threatening task as leaders were men. Just the same, it is believed that the 72 additional disciples
were all men but there is no evidence of that. It is said in early days  that it was custom for men to preach and that it is not a role for
woman to play and that they have their own place.   Well, that may be so that woman at the time before Jesus ascended to the
thrown were not commissioned to preach, but so many did. So, so many did. As a matter of fact every woman that was healed,
touched, blessed or had family, blessed, ministered and discipled others. The bible speaks of many and Jesus
never spoke
against it.  Even Paul, as powerful of a man as he was and the writer of 13 new testament books speaks of his travel to powerful
spirit filled prophets and woman of God so that he may be lifted up by their anointing just to have the strength to maintain his
journey and he names many!  So since he names many woman who blessed him while on his journey in many chapters and says
for woman to keep silent in the church in another, does that mean he was confused? Not at all !!  Actually, Paul was thought of as
phenomenally brilliant. So why did Paul make the statements that sound so contradicting?   Well,  Paul had God's wisdom and
understood ORDER. Lets go to 1 Corinthians 11:1  Paul  says "Imitate me just as I also imitate Christ" Verse 2 says "Now I praise
you, brethren, that you remember me in all things and keep the traditions just as I delivered them to you." Here Paul is encouraging,
saying for us to be as Jesus and keep ORDER. 3rd verse "But I want you to know the head of every man is Christ, the head of
woman is man, and the head of Christ is God." Then verse 8 teaches equality, yet order: "For man is not from woman, but woman
from man." Verse 9, "Nor was man created for the woman, but woman for man." Verse 11, "Nevertheless, neither is man
independent of woman, nor woman independent of man, in the Lord." So according to Paul, they are designed for each other yet
equal in spirit. God is not saying one is less than each other in spirit.  However, he is stating his order of headship and never ever
saying women cannot minister.


When Jesus reappeared after rising, he claims all authority in heaven an earth and commands the disciples to go and make
disciples of all the nations (Matt 28:18-20) and to teach all new disciples to obey His commandments. He did not say men only ,as
far as ministry goes but He does give  some degree of ORDER as far as pastoring goes. Also, note exactly what He said "make
disciples." Get them saved 1st and "Teach, 3rd; all new disciples (baby Christians) to obey His commandment. ORDER !  Lets
start at  1 Timothy 2:5.  Let's keep in mind the exact words of the Bible. Paul knows the true order of God's wisdom. So
he throws in
his order of how he runs his church because of how un-properly educated and disorderly the women of Esphesia and
Corinth were by blurting out objectives of Jewish customs.  1 Tim 2:5, "For there is one God and one Mediator between God and
men, the Man Christ Jesus."   Verse 6,  "who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time,"  Verse 7, "for which I was
appointed a preacher and an apostle - I am speaking the truth in Christ and not lying - a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth."   
Now Paul is saying God has given ME, and I'm not lying, the true ORDER and PARAMETERS to instruct you with and I'm
exercising my parameters because these woman are trippin' up in here!    Verse 8,  "I desire therefore that the men pray
everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting;" Verse 9 "in like manner also, that the woman adorn themselves in
modest apparel, with propriety and moderation, not ... 'seductively',"  Verse 10  "but, which is proper for woman professing
godliness, with good works". Verse 11,  "Let a woman learn silence with all submission."  Verse 12,  "And  I  (keyword) do not
permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man, but to be in silence."    Why could Paul exercise that desire and yet prior,
commended Priscilla for teaching the great preacher Apollos (Acts 18;24-26), bragged on how great Phobe who worked in the
church was (Romans 16:1), blessed Mary, Tryphena, Tryphosa and Persis the Lord's workers (Romans 16:6, 12) as were Euodia
and Synthyche (Philippians 4:2) and still say " Woman keep silent and I will never permit you to teach?" He knew the
PARAMETERS of God allowed woman to teach and to minister because God does not anoint and bless with power those who
don't GET IT and WALK IT right, regardless of  HOW WELL or HOW LONG  they have QUOTE IT or TALK IT. Humbly soul-search
and look in the mirror. Loose denial of where you think you stand in God, repent and ask God in Jesus Name to re-guide your steps
and if God says go left and all your efforts have been to YOUR right , go left and multi-task just as you would  for that human boss.
Don't get jealous of that super anointed, gifted, obedient, IN ORDER woman or baby Christian that's following God's orders
UN-SELECTIVELY, just as they would a human boss!  God knows every hearts worth whether you think so or not and anionts an
blesses accordingly. TIME SERVED AS A CHRISTIAN MEANS VERY LITTLE.  Evidence of that is you'll find youth operating in all
9 gifts and veterans still drinking milk crying out God complaining about what they should but don't have!  Paul  knew that the
women as well as men he was teaching were still on a milk diet and not eating meat yet (baby Christians).  And also he knew
God's ORDER. So he knew denying the right  for woman to teach in his church was ok with God because some can't submit to the
understanding of His order, which Paul explains in the next 10 verses.  Verse 13, "for Adam was formed first, then Eve." Verse 14,
"And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived, fell into transgression.  Verse 15, "Nevertheless she will be saved in
child bearing if they continue in faith, love, and holiness, with self control."    Does  Paul sound a little chauvinistic ?  OH YEAH !  But
not at all. Not in the slightest  bit. It's the word of God and he understands the order of Gods saying in 1st Corinthians 11:3, " the
head of every man is Christ and the head of every woman is man and the head of Christ is God," This part is God, not Paul and
that's the order of the creation of life and he knows that  God will not, has not ever strayed from this order. God even made the
Queen of Sheba bow down and serve Him. And her son who became the 1st King in Sheba, came  from the bloodline of Jesse,
David and Solomon. Royal blood just so He could not be mocked by any disagreeing with his holy divine order. Paul having the
insight of a woman's unnatural nature if deceived by the adversary, caused him to not take any chances. He was chosen to tell of
God's order and said he would not lie to us pertaining to the subject.  He had confidence about woman not ruling over man, yet if
God anoints the woman, then God himself  trust her so it's ok. This confidence must have come from the next verse, 1 Timothy 3:1  
"This is a faithful saying: If a MAN desires the position of a bishop, he desires a good work." Verse 2,  "A bishop then must be
blameless (not perfect), the HUSBAND (keyword) of one wife, temperate, sober-minded, of good behavior, hospitable, and able to
teach;" Verse 3, "not given to wine, not violent, not greedy for money, but gentle, not quarrelsome, not covetous;" Verse 4, "one
who rules HIS own house well, having HIS children in submission with all reverence" Verse 5, "for if a man does not know how to
rule his own house, how will he take care of the church of God?"  In the eyes of most, this time, HE must mean MALE this time in
order to have a wife, HIS own children, HE to rule over his house.  If HE can't, how will HE take care of  a church.  If In your eyes you
don't agree, God has His order on marriage, between a man and a woman the Bible says. (Romans 1-27, 1 Corinth 6;9, 1 Corinth
7;2-4 Liviticus 18;22) Lets get back to 1 Timothy 3:6 "not a novice, lest being puffed up with pride he fall into the same
condemnation as the devil."  Verse 7, "Moreover he must have a good testimony among those who are outside, lest he fall into
reproach and the snare of the devil." This is one time that God means male when He says HE!   He says the same about  the
Deacons. Verse 11, "likewise, their wives must be reverent, not slanderers, temperate, faithful in all things." God knows men can
fall short into temptation surely, so He has a requirement of them.


God has blessed and trusted so many women since the times of Paul up until today. If you are a woman and feel that God has
called you to the ministry, He probably has. He's trusting you to understand order.  Nowhere in this Bible does it say that you can't,  
but it rather encourages all to be ministers. My favorite female minister is Marilyn Hickey. If you notice, she's up there with the big
ones. She doesn't call herself a Rev, Pastor, Bishop, or Minister nor was she ever ordained. Just Marilyn Hickey Ministries.  Note
that her husband who is unknown by most, is the Sr. Pastor of their church. My wife and I have been their partners since 1997. They
understand Order very well. That's why God has made her and her daughter Sarah, known on every corner of the planet, as well as
great women of the past like Kathrine Kuhlman who just called herself a Evangelist (which translates to a ministering angel). Men
have gotten so jealous of women who are anointed more than them. In reality if the women are more anointed, it's because they are
more pure, selfless, obedient, heartseekers of the kingdom of God. God blesses and anoints according to your faith, obedience,
walk and Kingdom works (the soul winning).  If you find they already have Jesus, remember order. 2nd; Prophecy to them
encouragement, and 3rd educate them with wisdom. Don't even be concerned about others opinions.  Most have gotten puffed up
and think they have outgrown God's kingdom order and decide that they will focus on just this gift or that, instead of the 1st, 2nd and
3rd order of the church. As if God has changed his mind or promoted them because they have been on the roster a little while. I
promise you the people they pray over  in Jesus name and spread their gift to, will get blessed more than them! Meanwhile they are
crying to God, what about me? Their puffed-up-ness has blinded them to protocol (order) due to their self-promotion. And if they
keep on in denial, at the end of time they will be the ones that Jesus says "Depart from me you workers of iniquity for I do not know
you" And I'm absolutely sure some who read this will be saying "Oh that won't be me, Jesus knows I love him and I know where I
stand with God ! Maybe, but do you know where you stand in His eyes? Research what a worker of iniquity is and re-evaluate.  


Men and women, if you want to be great at ministry and receive great power of God. Follow those who you are seeing get super
blessed, do what they are doing (winning souls! Check it out for your self, you will see), not those who can quote scripture and talk a
good talk and you don't see them getting super-blessed. God will bless you somewhat, for any kingdom work, even if you select to
just pray for or just educate people with a little insight. He has to because he cannot lie "we're blessed for being a blessing." But
look at those that are truly following the order of the church, you will get sick at how much over-flow you will see in their life. Do as
they do, just as you would copy  Kolby Bryant  if you want to get great basketball skills. Oh and they will get jealous and think your
not worthy of your anointing. Their puffed-up-ness has made them forget who does the blessing and who's the author of the
anointing and that He knows whose kingdom works are worthy or not, regardless of what they think. In fact, if they even think that,
they obviously think God doesn't know what He's doing, and have been blinded to the fact that they have insulted the Master and
that He sees what they think. This is the meaning of  Verse 6; above "puffed up with pride and fallen into the same condemnation of
the devil,"  and verse 7; "Self promoting themselves above using their good testimony which the bible says he MUST have among
the outsiders to win the un-saved, deciding they're above that now and when they stop, it's as the verse says they fall into reproach
and the snare of the devil.  All while in denial, they cry out to God "what have I done? why me? why bless them and not me? I've
been serving you longer. We're up to doing this and that now. We're living, breathing and sleeping on this new thing now God, it's a
good thing, why are you not blessing me any more than normal or like you used too, I mean God this is bigger than the old days of
winning souls.  When God moves you on to other visions, learn to multi-task just like you see all the greats doing, including every
name on my special thanks home page. You will never see someone break order constantly and grow in ministry. The greats try to
not deny order of the church and really put focus on their pastoral conducts like Titus 5:16 which says the same as 1
Timothy;1;2;3;4;5;  6; 7; or they reap as verse 6&7 concluded. They multi-task all Gods visions  while keeping in mind the priority of
Gods Kingdom harvest 1st. I have been ministering since 1985. I can't remember not being in church as a child  and as most of you
know, this web-site since 1995. I have never seen a church grow that was doing the order of the church their way.  I have never
seen a church not grow that did the order God's way.  I have never seen a minister NOT fall after getting puffed up including myself
years back late 80's and more than a few on my special thanks home page, yes even some of the greats I know personally have
fell. I also have never seen a woman preacher get more blessed after exalting herself to Sr. Pastor or Bishop above men. I have
only seen God's word prove itself true and they stay stagnant, or develop family & congregation problems, and ask God why me,
what did I do? and slowly fizzle out until they recognize they are out of order and repent, regroup and fall back into God's grace
again and most come back strong.  I have seen too many times ministers too proud to admit they made mistakes,  didn't  follow
God's guidelines for building a church, and were out of order and used every excuse in the book to claim why the ministry didn't
grow.   Ministers male and female.


If you know you're called, try to follow God's GUIDELINE. Yes, it's a challenge, but worth it!  Please remember who is the author of
your anointing. Please remember to learn order and  when you're out of order, His grace is but so long and not much will change
until you do order as intended. Please remember it's His will be done, not yours just because you have a good idea. In the story of
Cain and Able both of them thought hey had a good idea. God only thought one of them was. This could be YOU!   Please don't
outgrow God!  Please don't try to get God to see kingdom works your way!  Please don't live in denial. And most of all, please
remember that the game of life is the battle of good and evil. Every day you live, every hour you have, every book you read, every
movie you see, every song you hear. We can't even write a story,  a song or script that's any different, we are not capable of it. And
what story or movie or song ever ends with evil winning, not one. The game isn't even fair, victory is already won! Chucky might
come back, but we get him. Freddy Kruger might come back, but we get him. Jason might come back, but we get him! The Evil
one may come back, but in Jesus' Name you get him. The game of life is:  Lucifer got kicked out of heaven for trying to steal Gods
glory. The rules are: You and your Fallen Angels  for the next 2000 years or so, or until I send my son back, get the option of trying to
win as many souls as you can deceive to roast and burn in hell with  you eternally, life without Me. Oh, and your new name is Satan.  
While I, God Almighty, the righteous angels, and the chosen saints will make all efforts to establish and fill my new kingdom, by
winning souls and as many as possible, to accept  Jesus as their savior, and they will have a perfect life, perfect temperature with
me in the new Kingdom, eternally. The clock is ticking. Game's over when I decide to sent my son back.  If your not helping your
God get names on His roster, you are not doing the most significant for the Kingdom of God.   If you think something is more
important, then, as it says above  in 1 Timothy 6; you're the puffed-up novice falling into the same pit as the devil, and as 7; says
failure to use your testimony for the outsiders has caused you to be snared. Don't be deceived! This why the ones you see winning
the most souls are the most blessed. They understand order, even though they have so many other functions going on they have the
priority straight! Seek ye 1st the kingdom of God and all will be added.


I pray in Jesus name that this segment has been a blessing to you and that it has helped you understand God's infinite love,
ORDER, PROTOCOL and the wisdom of knowing that God as well as I, Love woman in ministry. I believe most women study
deeper and deliver better angles of delivery, enlightening us in ways with drama, making it easier to understand. Most of all, I pray
that you've gained the wisdom of knowing it's God's way. All the time! Serve Him with more respect and honor than you have any
human boss. Serve him to fill his kingdom 1st. All the other gifts you have, use them all along the way relentlessly. You will be
blessed beyond your own understanding all along the rocky road you will travel !


Be blessed always and know that we want to love you more than Jesus does, but it's IMPOSSIBLE !!  Pastor Dj Wright.
