Should Hebrew Israelite Women Teach? The Redemption / Liberation of the Daughter’s of Zion

Should Hebrew Israelite Women Teach? The Redemption / Liberation of the Daughter’s of Zion

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yah is not dealing with women at all? Yah has never used our women to lead, teach, or influence the whole course of the Nation of Israel? Yah only uses women when there is no man available?

All these claims are scripturally FALSE and are broken down in great detail below (with scriptural references).

 

The Purpose

To help restore intricate parts of our culture that were lost. Parts that would aid us in having healthy, more complete families (for all members involved, according to Yah’s design), lifestyles, and a better understanding of our beautiful culture to aid in a desire of ALL members of the family wanting to know more, and thus seeking out YAH through study, fasting, and prayer, to bring about a closer relationship ULTIMATELY with HIM, but ALSO with our families, and EVERYTHING HE has given us to be GOOD STEWARDS of….

THIS IS A HEALING, INFORMATIONAL MINISTRY/Work.

 

Many Speak from FEAR of what a Foolish Woman May do, with No Consideration for the Wise

 

Many speak from fear of what a foolish woman may do with her Yah Given strength and Influence, but a wise woman knows how to use her strength and other attributes to build her family (if she chooses to have one) AND contribute greatly to the nation of our people. Yah has a better picture of how things should go in unison (together).

 

How My Husband Deals with the STRONG Proverbs 31 Woman?

At the time of this writing in 2017, we are married going on 9yrs and my husband supports me completely. He and our children have benefited greatly from having a Proverbs 31 woman in the household. He has seen the awesome ways Yah uses me AND how Yah blesses the works of my hands and causes things to be fruitful, quickly multiply, and produce for our household: In everything from finances to health. Seeing these things flow first hand often causes him to be amazed, “praise” me, and ULTIMATELY the Father who he knows works through me.

Proverbs 31:28 “Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her.”

He would be a fool to try to shut that down and step on his OWN favor. Proverbs 18:22 “ He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from Yahuah.”

 

Why is it Important to Understand Our True Culture as it Pertains to the Scriptures?

This is not religion for us. It’s culture. It’s a family.

The Black Family Unit is the foundation of EVERYTHING there is to build.

No doubt our scriptures have been hijacked by those who didn’t care at all about understanding the culture of our people. In fact, one of their main objectives was to leave THEIR imprint, cause confusion, and change things, so that we will stay like the horse chasing the carrot dangling in front of his face on a string.

Constantly taking steps with the illusion of progress, only in reality to get no closer to our desired goal.

Welp. That time has come and gone and for those who truly desire the carrot of wholeness, in this time, it is there for them to grasp and some of us are ALL TO GLAD to help these falsehoods meet their final resting place.

Without understanding the true culture of a people, words can be read on a page, but much can get lost in the way of understanding.

For example, when someone from Europe or many other parts of the world come to America they are often surprised or even offended (as if it is an insult to their intelligence) when they order a biscuit and receive this:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In their culture, a biscuit to them is what we here in America would refer to as a cookie, but they call it a biscuit.

Here are some examples of the European Biscuit:

Simple misunderstanding, right? Yes, but in it we find out in a very simple way WHY it is important to understand the culture of a people BEFORE you can accurately interpret what they are saying.

So Where Do We Go from Here? And 20 Years of Marriage in America?

We must understand that those of us whose descendants arrived to where we are by way of the Transatlantic Slave trade are further removed from our culture than many of our people who remain in certain pockets in West Africa and scattered through other parts of the continent.

In brief, according to many of their oral history due to different migration times, borders and other effects of colonization many of our people here of different tribes and in different countries do not even know that they are actually ONE people.

In America, due to the amount of mind control, witchcraft, and sorcery our people are subjected to daily for generations (both subtle and subconscious and obvious), we HAVE to celebrate when a married couple among our people here makes it to 20yrs example, but for many of our people in other areas who didn’t lose as much of our culture as we did they look at 20 years of marriage like, “What’s the big deal?” As for them, nothing less of a lifetime is the expectation.

 

Yah has never used our women to lead, teach, influence, the whole course of the Nation of Israel? Yah only uses women when there is no man available?

 

Now you have some making outlandish statements like “Yah is not dealing with women at all.” “Yah has never used our women to lead the lead, teach, influence, the whole course of the Nation of Israel,” etc. “Yah only uses women when there is no man available.”

As if to state that He doesn’t CHOOSE His own Daughters as well.

These things are so basic that for most we don’t even have to dive into the Hebrew (like we could) for deeper understanding…these things are right before your eyes if you READ the word in its’ entirety to get the balance of the word on a subject matter to clear up any possible confusion you may have.

Then from there you can use the Hebrew to bring even more clarity on this subject matter, if you so please. But it amazes me how so many profess to be scriptural scholars and yet miss the most basic of things and examples all through this scripture.

This is why the word says: “That wisdom is the principal thing and in all thy getting get UNDERSTANDING.” Not just KNOWLEDGE, you need wisdom and understanding to go with that knowledge:

Proverbs: 4: 5-13

5Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth.

6Forsake her (talking about wisdom) not, and she shall preserve thee: love her, and she shall keep thee.

7Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.

8Exalt her, and she shall promote thee: she shall bring thee to honour, when thou dost embrace her.

9She shall give to thine head an ornament of grace: a crown of glory shall she deliver to thee.

10Hear, O my son, and receive my sayings; and the years of thy life shall be many.

11I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have led thee in right paths.

12When thou goest, thy steps shall not be straitened; and when thou runnest, thou shalt not stumble.

13Take fast hold of instruction; let her not go: keep her; for she is thy life.

 

Highlighting the DOWNFALLS of Women in Scripture OVER the Successes

 

A lot of times the men or women who prescribe to this thought process like to try to highlight the downfalls of some women in scripture as some “evidence” to support their claims.

 

Keep in mind they do NOT highlight the downfalls of the MEN OR the fact that almost every lie and false idea and religion that has beset or thrown off Israel can usually be traced back to some MALE. As is the case with what I’m having to address in this article.  So once again, “Balance” Israel…Balance.

 

– Here we will be using scriptural examples that flies in the face of the false, blasphemous (lying on Yah and saying what he NEVER did), abominable (when something goes against the natural design of what it was created to do, who it was created to be or HOW it was created to function), lies put forth by many in Israel (The Hebrew Israelite Community) who are seeking to fill their OWN voids, emptiness, feeling of powerlessness and inferiority, by taking scripture out of context and reading into it what was never there.

…who are seeking to fill their OWN voids, emptiness, feeling of powerlessness and inferiority, by taking scripture out of context and reading into it what was never there.

It is FALSE to think you can liberate YOURSELVES, while keeping your woman BOUND. If SHE is bound, the so are YOU, and your children she bears.

 

The Hebrew Israelite Woman: The Most Influential Member of Household

First, remember the Moses was told to give the word to the women FIRST. The serpent came to Eve, FIRST. Why is that? Is it because she was weak? No. It is because of her influence. If the woman eats, then the man and her family will “eat” as well.

She is the most influential member of the household.

The INFLUENCE of the woman is EXACTLY why Yahuah has warned taking on foreign wives or dealing with unrighteous women because whether men like to admit it or not, the influence of the woman affects the whole household (for good or bad).

Deut 7:3-4 3You shall not intermarry with them, giving your daughters to their sons or taking their daughters for your sons, 4for they would turn away your sons from following me, to serve other gods.)

 

Here are some of the women who will be used, for the sake of time, detail will not be given to all of the women, but the names are here for any that you are not all that familiar with, if you desire to do further research:

 

Some of The Hebrew Israelite Women who YAH Used to lead, teach, influence, the whole course of the Nation of Israel, even When Strong Righteous Men were Available

 

  • Of course, Deborah who was a prophetess and a judge, during a time where the judges ruled Israel. She exercised complete religious, political, judicial, and militaristic authority over the people of Israel. (Judges 4-5) and

 

  • Jael (who exhibited her “gentle and quiet spirit” by driving a tent peg through Sisera’s skull).  

 

 

  • Prophetess Huldah who was a prophetess during the time of Jeremiah, Zephaniah, Nahum, and Lehi…So, what is with all of these people saying that Yah only uses women when there is no man available?

 

Huldah Taught the Book of the Law to the King…

The king also sent the High Priest, Hilkiah, to seek out her (Huldah’s) wisdom on the word of Yah, the book of the Law, found in the Temple.

  • Prophetess Miriam (Exodus 12:20), and who the prophet Micah mentions right along with Moses and Aaron as being a leader of Israel who Yah sent before them to lead them out of Egypt. And there would be no Moses to talk about if a young Miriam had not had the forethought and wisdom to do what she did to save his life as a baby (Exodus 2). Other references of Miriam: Exodus 21, Numbers 12, Numbers 20, Numbers 26, Deuteronomy 24, Micah 6:4

 

  • Judith- Who’s story can be likened to that of David and Goliath. She was NOT a warrior, but through her faith, wisdom, intelligence, strategizing, and strength in Yahuah she was able to take out the fearsome mighty warrior, Holofernes (who was the leading general of Nebuchadnezzar’s army) and she saved all of Israel at a time when they were about to give in if Yah did not do something in 5 days.

Judith REBUKED Male Elders and Prays Over Them

She (Judith) sent out one of her waitingwomen to go bring the elders back to her. She rebuked them, telling them that the words they had spoken to the people are not right (Judith 8) and when she was done Uzziah said to her (Judith 8:28-31) “28 Then said Uzziyahu (Uzziah) to her, All that you have spoken have you spoken with a good heart, and there is none that may dispute your words. 29 For this is NOT the first day where your WISDOM is manifested; but from the beginning of your days all the people have known your understanding, because the disposition of your heart is good.”  Then in 31 he asks her to pray for them, “Therefore now pray for us, because you are a RIGHTEOUS WOMAN, and Yahuah will send us rain to fill our cisterns, and we shall faint no more.”

So he knew she had a PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP with the Father, Abba Yah to where if she spoke with Yah, HE would hear her.

She told them she had a different plan, but not only that, she told them not to even ask her what her plan was, because she would not tell them.

Judith 8:32-35 “32 Then said Yahudith (Judith) to them, Hear me, and I will do a thing, which shall go throughout all generations to the children of our nation. 33 Ye shall stand this night in the gate, and I will go forth with my waitingwoman: and within the days that you have promised to deliver the city to our enemies Yahuah will visit Yisrael by MY hand. 34 But enquire no ye of my act: for I will not declare it to you, til the things be finished that I do. 35 Then said Uzziah and the princes unto her, Go in peace, and Yahuah Elohim be before you, to take vengeance on our enemies.”

She had a different plan which she put into action, where she successfully cuts off the head of Holofernes (the STRENGTH and general of Nebuchadnezzar’s army). Her story also symbolizes Israel and how they were often surrounded by forces and situations that seemed to large or insurmountable, Israel seemed too “weak” compared to the forces they faced, but with THEIR Power Yahuah they accomplished many great things, where circumstances say that they should have failed. (Book of Judith)

Prophetess Anna– must also mention her.

Some of the Women Who PAUL SUPPORTED in Teaching the Scriptures and Considered Them LEADERS

Priscilla (from the husband and wife team Aquilla and Priscilla Romans 16:3 who Paul considered his fellow laborers of teaching the word aka side by side with him), Euodia and Syntyche (who Paul also considers his fellow laborers of teaching in Philippians 4:2–3)   Chloe who lead her OWN gathering or “church” and Phoebe who was considered a deacon, were leaders in the early assembly (or what some call “church”) era and so was Lydia, Nympha (Colossians 4:15), Apphia, Mary (Romans 16 who Paul says has labored very hard) and one woman, Junia- is called an apostle by Paul.

Yahuah Tells Abraham to Do What Sarah Says

Not to mention Yahuah told Abraham to hearken or LISTEN to Sarah (about sending Ishmael away, even though he didn’t want to???)

Moses’ Wife Zipporah Saw what He Couldn’t See and Saved His Life

and the discernment of Moses wife, saved his life, by seeing the danger he couldn’t see at that time.

 

Abigail who interrupted King David’s plans, spoke with him and Kept him from doing Evil and He listened to her and good thing he did.. (1 Samuel 25), …

 

The women who were the last group there with Yahusha, with hims at death, burial, and resurrection (long after the disciples had dispersed)and THEY (the women) were the first group Yahusha appeared to after resurrection to spread the “Good News” which some refer to as “the Gospel” that he has risen. The apostles did not even believe Mary Magdalene, when she went to them to tell them. This is why some earlier literature refers to her as an “Apostle to the Apostles.”

Personally, Abba Yah has Used even ME Prophetically and for Healings from a Baby

And even in that regard the things I have personally seen and do in my own life. The father has used me from a child.

(Now, I was too young to remember this one in particular, so this is the account of my mother)…

I was 2 years old…her check was late in the mail…She was frustrated and the Father used me to tell her the EXACT day it would show up in the mail, she fussed me out in disbelief (I was a child “speaking out of place”…so to speak) telling me that I didn’t know what I was talking about, it NEVER comes on Tuesday and sure enough it was in the mail when she checked on Tuesday.

Here’s another quick personal story:

Now, at this point I was older maybe 5-ish so I remember some of this myself, but my dad had to fill in the details…

He came back paralyzed from the neck down from the war the doctors said that he wouldn’t walk again etc. and the Father used me to go in that hospital grab my father by his dead hand and tell him to get up and walk. Now, he didn’t spring up and walk, but the filling immediately returned in his hand and he moved it.

The doctor’s were in disbelief and panic and the doctor that was in the room called in more doctors to come in and see this for themselves. They said “Mr.Minniefield if it’s true, if you can move your hand then try to grip my finger and he gripped the doctor’s finger.” From there they were able to get him into a short rehab where he learned to walk again and got right back to being his athletically competitive self.”

Now I could tell you even MORE testimonies than that over the course of my lifetime, all the way up through present day…but if YAH is not using women or dealing with women or girls then perhaps someone should tell YAH that…be bold enough to tell YAH to stop His mess..(Most of the people who speak against Yah using HIS daughter’s have not even seen in their lifetime the likes of the things that YAH has used women like me to do…) Abba Yah lends them no TRUE Power.

 

They Keep Us Playing in the Sandbox

This is something that I feel should not HAVE to even be addressed, because scripture is so clear in context…But because of the current state of Yah’s people after losing our culture and being under heathen rulership for so long, we have forgotten OUR OWN ways (which are YAH’s Ways) and taken on the perspectives of the wicked…without even realizing all of the different ways that we have.

The Subject of Hebrew Israelite Women Being Handled in a Lazy Manner Among the Nation

Often when people try to make their case for Yah NOT using women, only using women when no man is available, or whatever the different points they try to make…they do so by ONLY pulling a scripture here or there.

…When to understand what YAH intended on a matter you have to get a more full picture, study the matter throughout the ENTIRE word to get a full picture, get the BALANCE of the word, then form you “conclusion” and even THEN be humble enough for YAH to maybe even change that conclusion one day as it continues to develop and you grow in Him. I feel like we KNOW we need the balance of the word, but for whatever reason, this subject matter of our women has been handled in such a lazy manner.

 

Don’t Be Fooled…It’s YOUR Responsibility to KNOW

But if you buy it, it’s not completely their fault. You have some responsibility to take as well. Here’s the thing we must remember Children of Israel, we all see and prophesy in part…so NO ONE has it all, no not yet.

So, you would be amiss to totally hinge your salvation, you life pursuits, and purpose, ministries, ONLY on the word of another person. “Study to show yourself approved.” “Work out your own soul salvation in fear and trembling.” “It is the honor of kings to search out a manner.” These 3 scriptures are there for a reason.

There’s a Price to Pay for Suppressing and Oppression what Yahuah has Put inside Women…It has to be Birthed

You WILL NOT be able to say to YAH, I thought women were supposed to be this and do this ONLY, and I was not a good steward of my wife, daughters, etc. and I suppressed and oppressed the very things you put inside of her for my blessing and favor, why some men choose to step on their OWN favor is beyond me… Proverbs 18:22 “He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor with Yah” and maybe even the things that Yah put inside of her that could be a blessing to the world.

There’s a great price for those brothers to pay, even in this life (remember the reaping a sowing principle…it doesn’t mean that everything you do to someone else will happen to you the same way, but what it DOES guarantee is how you make another feel (in error) you will be made to feel the same way and thing, through your work, friends, or however it has to occur for you to feel it…

So if you are belittling and seeking to make women feel inferior, then no wonder many of these men feel so powerless and belittled in their day to day lives.)

 

…and women won’t be able to say that they heard from some teacher that they should NOT Do or SAY such and such…you have to understand that YAH is holding EACH individual accountable for the seeds that He’s planted in YOU…the talents (which could reference anything) that He’s given you to sow, produce, multiply…You have to KNOW for yourself and if you don’t unfortunately you run the risk of hearing, “Depart from me for I never knew you.” If you are ONLY taking other people’s words on a matter and not searching and seeking in out yourself through the FULLNESS of HIS word (not just ONE verse here and there) YOU are NOT practicing KNOWING HIM.

 

There are many examples that can be given for each point in fact part of my challenge was narrowing down the abundant scripture to support this matter. But for the sake of time in this presentation we will practice, 2 Corinthians 13:1 “This is the third time I am coming to you. In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established
and at least 2 scriptural witnesses will be given for each point and those whose heart and minds are in the right place will see according to Yah’s word that that is enough and even further search out the matter for themselves…Remember, everything in the word is not to be read like you read the newspaper or a magazine, you have to search out things for a FULL/Balanced understanding.

Proverbs 25:2 “It is the glory of Yahuah to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter.”

 

This is NOT Religion for US (so we don’t approach this the way Christians and Muslims do…this is OUR CULTURE)

 

 

But What Did Paul Say on Women Keeping SILENT?

Now, let’s deal with what Paul said, that many love to quote out of context. It seems as if most of us understand that when we read scripture we should understand the “who” (who is speaking and who is being spoken to), about what, when, sometimes where, but ESPECIALLY the WHY (why is this being said to this person or group of people and what should we get out of it). As everything for us in scripture is a learning experience.

Many of us understand that when we read the word, ESPECIALLY where things seem contradictory on the surface we should then seek out to further study this matter throughout the word to see what’s really being said in a place where we THINK the speaker may be contradicting the word or himself.

And (when it comes to dealing with those in scripture who we deemed to be in right standing with TMH) if after further study their words seem to go against the Yah desired culture of the scripture OR if their words seem to contradict their OWN actions or words spoken elsewhere in scripture…then WE must be humble enough to admit that maybe our UNDERSTANDING or INTERPRETATION of what WE thought the speaker meant is off…

We so often do these things for the more frivolous things in scripture but when it comes to the subject matter of women, the vast majority of the teaching right now are handled very very lazily.

Especially, considering that a portion of this is attached to what the bible calls a “mystery.” That means these things definitely cannot be handled lazily, by what you read on the surface.

Ephesians 5:31 “For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.”[b] 32 This is a great mystery, but I speak concerning Hamashiach and the called out assembly.

Mystery means hidden, concealed, or hard to see and if someone cannot understand this portion then they cannot begin to understand the true mystery of marriage.

Paul stated: 1 Corinthians 14:34 “Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law.”

Again in the book of Timothy we read Paul saying similar, Timothy 2:11-12 “11Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. 12But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.”

People have tried to use this to state that women cannot openly teach the word or Yahuah in gatherings of both male and female and that the woman should be silent.

Many people who believe this have not read where a couple chapters earlier in Corinthians the SAME Paul is giving the SAME church instructions to women as they prophesy in the church?

1 Corinthians 11:5 “but every wife who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head, since it is the same as if her head were shaven.”

Now, this is not talking about her physical head, but this is not a lesson on that.

So, Why would he instruct them on HOW to prophesy if he meant women are to be completely silent?

That alone shows that Paul is NOT saying what many interpret it to mean, about women must be silent. Unless, Paul was a crazy man who didn’t realize when he was contradicting his own self…but wait there’s more.

 

Women Leaders and Teachers Who Paul Supported

Here again are some of the specific women who Paul supported and encouraged in their ministries and often referred to them as co-laborers or co-workers (like a help-mate or help-meet) meaning they were doing the same work he was doing or “working on the same job,” so to speak.

Priscilla (from the husband and wife team Aquilla and Priscilla Romans 16:3 who Paul considered his fellow laborers of teaching the word aka side by side with him), Euodia and Syntyche (who Paul also considers his fellow laborers of teaching in Philippians 4:2–3)   Chloe who lead her OWN gathering or “church” and Phoebe who was considered a deacon, were leaders in the early assembly (or what some call “church”) and so was Lydia, Nympha (Colossians 4:15), Apphia, Mary (Romans 16 who Paul says has labored very hard) and one woman, Junia– is called an Apostle by Paul.

So, now we see that Paul supported Many women as they taught, prophesied, and labored for Yah in “churches” or gatherings, Some even lead their own assemblies “churches”…

So, Why Does it Seem that Paul Contradicts Himself when He Says Women Should Remain Silent?

First, let’s be sure we understand what Peter said of Paul. This is what Peter says of Paul’s writings in 2 Peter 3:16 “as he does in all his letters when he speaks in them of these matters. There are some things in them that are hard to understand, which the ignorant and unstable twist to their own destruction, as they do the other Scriptures.”

 

So, Now Let’s Examine Some Basic Things First:

  1. Who was Paul sent or called to?

The Gentiles.

2. Who was he speaking to here?

Gentile women NOT the Daughter’s of Zion (Hebrew Israelite women)

 

What Specifically was Paul Addressing here in Corinth? More Context

 

Corinth was one of the most wealthy cities in the ancient world. In it was the temple of Aphrodite—a temple that boasted, of 1,000 prostitutes. You can do more research on this Pagan Greek goddess yourself, but just know the core workings of Aphrodite dealt with sexual ecstasy, and consuming all manner of sexual pleasures, and a vain form of beauty. She had many priestesses in Corinth and her priestesses offer sexual favors to the faithful and committed as a show of “worship” to the goddess Aphrodite. So, this is the CORE of what Paul was dealing with in his letters to Corinth around 55 C.E. This church was VERY troubled.

Writing from Ephesus, Paul addressed specific problems in the assembly, like divided loyalties (1 Corinthians 1:10, 1 Cor. 3:4, 1 Cor. 6:1-11); sexual immorality (1 Corin. 5:1-5 and 5:9-11, 1 Corin. 6:12-19, 1 Cor. 10:7-11); drunkenness (1 Corin.11:21); food sacrificed to idols and idol worship (1 Corin. 8:4, 1 Corin. 10:14); and disorder and confusion during teaching and worship (1 Corin.14:23).

With the female goddess Aphrodite running rampant in the community these women needed a lesson on humility.

Taken in the proper context of the issues Paul is addressing, he asks women worshipping in the Corinthian assembly to refrain from asking their husbands questions during worship (1 Corin.14:34).

Clearly, Paul’s instruction to women appears at the end of him stating to teach the word in an orderly way, so others might hear and understand (1 Corin.14:1-36). Paul’s primary concern here is the spreading of the word of Yah or aiding in bringing a portion of Yah’s kingdom here on earth, what some refer to as a certain kind of ministry work. That’s his main focus here. And The word is best taught in an orderly atmosphere. So that all the people may learn. Paul insists upon order in worship and he harps on it in Chapter 14.

Women and men sat in different parts of the synagogue, so for women to ask questions of their husbands during service would disrupt the entire assembly. This is why Paul instructed married women would need to ask questions of their husbands to do it at home. The problem was not with women speaking in general, but with their choice to disrupt worship specifically. Their voices (speaking to their husbands during worship) were not to disrupt others from hearing the word.

Paul’s statement is dealing with a SPECIFIC problem in CORINTH and is NOT for universal application…It doesn’t apply to women everywhere OR even all the women of Corinth. This was something for the women who were acting disorderly to keep in mind.

As we’ve seen Paul supports women speaking in church or gatherings, he ONLY requests their silence when their freedom to speak proves a distraction to the word going forth. Paul’s highest priority is that the spreading of the word of Yah be done in an effective way.

But keep in mind: Though Paul asks women to remain silent when their voices were an interruption, this does not limit their voices in all places at all times. Remember, women were prominent as prophets in scripture and being a prophet requires speaking the words of Yah in our YAH given authority through his son Yahusha. So it’s HIS authority not ours.

Women WERE Prominent Prophets and What are Some of the Main Roles of a Prophet?

We can see in Jeremiah some of main roles of a prophet, Jeremiah 1:10 “See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant.” THIS is a prophets main function and it requires power and authority to carry out.

We have to understand that who we are in our physical shell means NOTHING, everything happens in the spirit first, we are empowered through the spirit…our flesh is nothing but something we MUST have dominion over and make subject to the Spirit. Our flesh is the weakest part of us all, male OR female…so if you are only focused on that…you are carnal and missing out on a lot.

Romans 8:7 “For the mind that is set on the flesh is hostile to YAH, for it does not submit to Yah’s law; indeed, it cannot.”

2 Corinthians 10:3-5 “3For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: 4(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through YAH to the pulling down of strong holds;) 5Casting down imaginations (thoughts), and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of YAH (as flesh tends to do), and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of the Messiah;”

Words of Elder Mayanah when someone was implying that a woman being a prophetess meant that she had “spiritual authority” over the man:

Hebrew Israelite Woman Spiritual Authority Usurp Authority Over a Man“<—- Nowhere in the TaNaK is it ever stated that israelites considered the prophetesses “over” them. Israelites understood that the word of the Creator was HIS authority and didn’t go around trying to steal shine for themselves. This “boys vs the girls” thing is not our fight (it’s not a Torah thing).”

 

Whose Authority Do We Use?

I advise us ALL to be so careful in ALL of our ministries and gifting’s to understand WHOSE authority we are using, because whether male or female, young or old, we have no TRUE authority in and of ourselves…in our OWN names, in our OWN physical shells. We DO NOT and CANNOT approach the level of holiness that HE IS as ourselves, we would be dead.

This is one reason why the scripture says we should ask and seek him through Yahusha, His son’s, name John 14: 12-14 (on things according to HIS will not yours).

So, that when He looks at us, He sees us through the veil of His son.

THIS gives us ALL the KINGSHIP authority that WE possess…ONLY because HE is KING and He shares HIS KINGSHIP authority with us to do HIS work and to accomplish what HE wants accomplished in the earth. THIS is what demons flee from, not YOU lol or because of anything you ARE or HAVE DONE. Has NOTHING to do with male, female, age, etc. It has NOTHING to do with you. It’s HIS authority. The moment you forget this you enter into pride and according to Proverbs 16:18 “Pride comes before, A FALL.” Provers 16:18 Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.

Our people (the Israelites) of the Tanak (“old testament” for simplicity’s sake) understood this. They did not think that because someone was operating as a teacher, prophet, prophetess, scribe, psalmist etc. that it meant this person had “spiritual authority” over them. NO. They understood that a person of Yah was using YAH’S authority.

You are more careful with things when you realize you are “borrowing it” and must return it (give account) one day.

 

Let’s stop playing the sandbox and go higher in understanding Israel.

 

So, now that we know Paul DID in fact allow women to speak out in the assemblies, “churches,” or gatherings and even gave them instructions and even supported many of them in doing so…

If THIS was allowed for even gentile women then how much more for even the Daughter’s of Zion?

If gentile women are permitted (allowed) to speak on something that is foreign to them…Then WHY would the Father NOT allow Israelite women to speak on their daily lives and culture…what they actually lived?

What you must understand is that while these scriptures are somewhat foreign to us because we have been so far removed, BUT to the everyday Israelite woman this was simply her everyday life that she lived…culture…which is this scripture…So why would she be restricted from talking about it?

There was nothing more than to really talk about other than their day to day lives…Just like today, we talk about what we’ve lived and seen. For the average Hebrew Israelite woman, what they were living and seeing is what’s reflected in the bible as scripture. This is NOT a religious book for us, this is OUR CULTURE…so either we TRULY believe that or we don’t.

Allow me to read an excerpt from a book, about ONE aspect of the special nature of the Daughter’s of Zion, (Hebrew Israelite Women) and the position they held in Israelite Culture:

 

The position of women among them was far higher than with the Arabs, and the character of Hebrew women must have been, on the whole, such as to command and sustain this HIGHER POSITION. The Arabs can show NO LIST of PIOUS and ILLUSTRIOUS LADIES like those who adorn the history of the Hebrews. No mother of “other cultures” ever taught, or could teach, such a “prophecy” as King Lemuel learned from his; NOR COULD A PICTURE OF “A VIRTUOUS WOMAN” GIVEN IN THE LAST CHAPTER OF PROVERBS, HAVE BEEN COPIED BY ANY ARAB (OR WOMEN OF OTHER CULTURES)…

(I don’t necessarily recommend getting this book, bc you cannot just take this books word for it…and I noticed that a lot in this book required separating the meat from the bone…The BIBLE is your greatest resource and literary study on our culture.)

 

I have seen many groups of other women complain of the IMPOSSIBILITY of having to be a “Proverbs 31” type woman, they see it as oppressive and an impossible STANDARD held over women’s heads, that in their can…can never be accomplished.

Hebrew Israelite Women, The Daughter of Zion, is different.
