[Inside Truth][Salvation][Study Helps]


Men, Women, and God Relationships


Genesis the Beginning: [Note that God is more than one entity!] And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth. So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them. [Both man and woman are made in the image of God.] (Genesis 1:26-27 KJV Rev)

Cultural Conceptions tend to negate the importance of the female as an individual! In fact in some societies they are sold and traded like cattle.

[God wants both men and women to His children!] And will be a Father unto you, and you shall be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty. (2 Corinthians 6:18 JKV Rev)

[God offers His Children eternal life at their resurrection!] And Jesus answering said unto them, The children of this world marry, and are given in marriage: But they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage: Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angels; and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection. (Luke 20:34-36 KJV Rev)

[Godís creation is on going as He is in the process of qualifying sons and daughters to be His Children!] Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. For if you live after the flesh, you shall die: but if you through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, you shall live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. For you have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but you have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The Spirit itself bears witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creature (creation) waits for the manifestation of the sons of God. (Romans 8:12-19 KJV Rev)

[All Godís children are equal, none is above another thus men and women are equal.] For you are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for you are all one in Christ Jesus. (Galatians 3:26-28 KJV Rev)

Whosoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God [Belief without works, like faith without works is DEAD! (For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also. (James 2:26))]: and every one that loves Him that begot loves him also that is begotten of Him. By this we know that we love the Children of God, when we love God, and keep His commandments. [The commandments are not "nailed to the cross!"] For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments: and His commandments are not grievous. For whatsoever is born of God overcomes the world: and this is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith. Who is he that overcomes the world, but he that believes that Jesus is the Son of God? This is He that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that bears witness, because the Spirit is truth. There are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree (witness) in one. If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater: for this is the witness of God which He has testified of His Son. He that believes on the Son of God has the witness in himself: he that believes not God has made him a liar; because he believes not the record that God gave of His Son. And this is the record, that God has given to us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He that has the Son has life; and he that has not the Son of God has not life. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may believe on the name of the Son of God. (1 John 5:1-13 KJV Rev)

Jesus came preaching the good news of the Kingdom of God and how to enter into it by the narrow gate and by following the true shepherd: (Christ said) My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand. I and my Father are one (in agreement). (John 10:27-30)
