Acts 2:17-18, “In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy.”

In my journey of searching for the right Church to worship with, I often came across some who believed women had no right to serve the Body of Christ from behind the pulpit. Many Churches still to this day promote the idea of women being serveants unto their Husbands and remain silent during service as stated by the Apostle Paul in His letter to the Corinthian Church. In 1 Corinthian 14:34-35 which states, “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. And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.” What many fail to realize about this scripture is that it addressed the social climate of that part of the world at that time. Back then women were not encouraged to be educated or to be free of mind. Men and Women did’nt even sit next to each other in Church services then, so when the Apostle was teaching, they would try to ask their Husbands sitting away from them, for the meaning behind what was being taught in turn interrupting the service by doing so. So to do away with this confusion Paul asked the women to be quite, and wait and ask their Husbands when they got home for the meaning of the message being preached. Sadly Satan has taken this scripture and used it for ungodly men to place our women into bondage and servitude unto them over the generations. Let us not forget that women were the first to preach the good news of the risen Christ in Luke 24: 6-9, “He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee, Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again. And they remembered his words, And returned from the sepulchre, and told all these things unto the eleven, and to all the rest.” Remember their is only one stepping stool for all to use in this life and that is the Devil, and not our women! They are granted the same right to speak, teach, sing, and praise God for the Salvation that is in Jesus that all flesh should adhere to…Amen!
