John 19:25-27 On the cross Jesus gave his mom to John to care for. He didn't tell her to be an independent strong woman. Mary had a sister that was also present at the cross. But Jesus didn't tell Mary to depend on herself or her sister or other women, but rather upon John who was not even related.
1 Tim. 5:1-16 Male caretakers of women could be:
Husband, dad, step-dad, brother, brother-in-law, son, grandson, nephew, uncle, cousin or pastor; or other male.
Esther 2:7 Mordecai married his cousin Esther.
-So this doesn't mean that ALL single women should go get married as soon as possible, since there are more types of male caretakers than just husbands.
But it does mean that women should seek good male leadership/caretaker. If not a great man, at least a decent man.
-IF the woman is truly eligible for re-marriage, that would be best. But a lot has to be considered to determine that. That's difficult for a pastor to always determine just by emailing + chatting online. There's always 2 sides to every story. In fact, most of the time, there's 3 sides to every story. His side. Her side. And then the truth.
-The exception of a man taking care of a woman (or even women taking care of a woman), would be that if she is satanic, such as a Catholic, Muslim, antichrist person, Assad follower, etc., she should be shunned, not taken care of. In that case, the bible says that the person is worthy of death, but that's for the government authorities to take care of, not the general population.
Women Need Men For:
Protection (women are easy prey, especially in the G.T. Men don't need women for protection, so this is different between what I said about men could be single. Even inside a pregnant woman's womb, as the baby develops, embryology shows, the cells that contribute to the baby’s protection are from the sperm, while the nurturing cells originate from the egg), raising/discipline children especially if have boys (men discipline much better/stronger), role model for boys, teach boys how to be men, income (Women shouldn't be working outside of the home except only for teachers of young children, caretakers, baby sitting, part time maid/cooking/cleaning, etc.), correct financial decisions (most of the time, men are better at saving money and being cheap), household repairs, help in garden, hunting, fishing, spiritual leadership.
Spiritual leadership: Needed at home, not just online.
2 Tim. 3:5-7 Timothy was warned about people deceiving the women.
Women more easily led astray by leftist politics as we see in the "feminist" movement.
1 Tim. 2:7-15 Eve was the first deceived. Not Adam.
Gen. 2:18 The Woman was made to help man. It's in the women's DNA to assist men. To not do so, would equal not fulfilling their role in life.
Testimony: My widowed dad and I would occasionally visit a woman member of the family, like an aunt figure to me. When we visited, she would always cook or warm up some food for us. That's Southern hospitality (local culture custom), but also what women should do in all nations, and in fact, do in most nations, when anyone visits, the wives go immediately into the kitchen and start cooking for the visitors.
-"Strong independent" women are fooling their selves. They suffer without men. They might survive well. But one way or another, they (and/or their children) also suffer.
-In the bible, girls stayed with their parents until married to a man or sold to a man. They didn't move away from their parents without a man.
Isa. 4:1 End time prophecy of 7 women to one man. In the Great Tribulation, women will confess their need for men, will accept polygamy, as many men will be killed in war. Will also confess their shame of the leftist feminist movement. Will beg for a husband.
Context = Chapter 2-3 Great Tribulation
Women need a man to kill the snakes, spiders, bears, lions, etc.
Opposition: Gal.3:28-29 "No difference between male & female in The Kingdom":
Answer: Versions of the word "circumcise" are written 16 times in this tiny book of Galatians. Very clearly the context is that salvation is not based upon whether you are white or black, or male or female or circumcised or uncircumcised. It's talking about salvation being available through Jesus. It's not saying that gender roles were done away with at Christ's death. Very clearly the New Testament continues to teach proper gender roles long after Jesus's death and resurrection.
Reasons why better for men to stay single, but doesn't apply to women:
-Men have a higher calling to focus on the work of The Kingdom. Women can share/testify/witness, but not teach to the same greater extent that men can. More men are called to be deacons, teachers, etc.
-Some men could find their selves fighting in WW3 and lose their lives, and shouldn't be leaving new born babies behind. Although some women could also be active in the war, not near as many as men.
-Some men have the option of prostitutes in some situations. But women never have this option. Men can have many wives including prostitutes. Women can have only one husband at a time. So men have more options for sex, which they very badly need and must have for physical health reasons.
-It's harder for a man to find the right woman, than a woman to find the right man. This is partly because the man must be concerned about whether or not the woman is still married to some man from many years ago, and how many men she has had sex with. But women don't need to even think about any of this, because men can have sex with many women. So this really narrows down the playing field for men, not women.
I also find that many more women are caught up in witchcraft than men. So this again decreases the number of available good wives for men. Also, many women are too dominate/rebellious and "independent" so that they are not good candidates as wives for men.
-The bible very clearly teaches that women should have (and need) male caretakers.
And the women in turn, take care of the men via food, sex, clothes, cleaning, raising children, etc.
Not natural for women to be alone. Fact is, women need husbands MORE THAN men need wives.
None of this means that all women must stay with their husbands. There ARE times when divorce is the best thing to do, such as severe physical abuse. But when divorced, she still needs some kind of male covering/leadership.
-Many thousands of Chinese visited Las Vegas, Nevada on Jan. 25, just 2 weeks ago, for celebrations of the Chinese New Year.
-At least 2-3 cruise ships have infected people.
-More and more cities in China are being quarantined. 60 cities in 3 provinces= 200 million+ people (Over half of the size of the USA population!)
-Plagues of locusts in Pakistan, Ethiopia, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and other nations.
-Bird flu, swine flu and other versions of the flu.
-Turkey keeps sending more & more massive amounts of military into Syria.
The Syrian army has surrounded 9 Turkish military outposts.
USA says will support NATO ally Turkey.
Looks like this will be the main flashpoint to ignite the "Strong Delusion" of 2 Thes.2 (Abomination of Desolation of Matt.24 and Daniel 11-12) on Purim March 8-11, 2020 .
