Women & Men: Raise Your Standard

Women & Men: Raise Your Standard

A couple of weeks ago I shared a facebook status that really hit a nerve for a lot of people, so I want to expand on it.

Women: if you raise your standard, men will see it and mature themselves to it. The longer you talk to and put up with/immature, half-boyish game players, the worse it gets for you… Men too: Raise the standard!

Men are leaders but women have great influence. Most women receive foolishness ONLY because they tolerate it. They tolerate it either because they are foolish themselves and don’t listen to God, or because they don’t have a good father to see as an example, and so they don’t know the standard.

I’m not saying this to bash women; I need to raise standards in my life too. Godly Men need to raise their standards and refuse to tolerate things. But guess what… what women reward is what some men will aspire to. The more idiot women reward “players” and “boyfriends” with sex and attention… the more idiot players and boyfriends that we will have to deal with in this world.

High Standards actually Create what they Expect!

Women, this standard is NOT “I’m only marrying a millionaire,” or with anything having to do with your lust, your flesh, or your pride. The standard has to do with character. Does he fear God? Is he in control of his sexual desire? Think about this: if he will sin against God for you, then someday he will sin against you for someone else. If he is ruled by his penis then he is not a man yet.

The standard is not about $30,000 in the bank and a big house. I’ve been rich and I’ve been poor… but I always know how to work. Yes, marriage is a NATURAL thing, and money is necessary. Men, here are the questions you need to answer:

Have you found the work that you love to do?
Do you spend 6 days a week doing it?

I’m going to say that again:

Have you FOUND…
the WORK…
that you LOVE to do? That God BUILT you to do?

Do you SPEND SIX DAYS A WEEK doing that work?

If you have found the work you love to do that means you are connected with the gifts and talents that God has built inside of you. That’s not limited to a job. It’s a gift; it’s a talent, its something that you can do anywhere. But you can do it at your job.

If you spend 6 days a week doing that work; that means you have conquered your lazy flesh and you are not wasting your life playing games.

If you can answer those two questions correctly: MONEY IS NOT A PROBLEM.

If you do those two things, money will come to you. The only thing you have to do is learn how to save it. Money is not a problem, if you don’t give it away like an idiot. (I’ve been an idiot several times in my life, so I feel you if you are an idiot. You can easily get better).

But back to my point: The Standard is High, but it’s NOT Unattainable.
Character and Work Ethic is it.

Women: don’t tolerate anything less. The next time an idiot in the street says “Hey girl can I have your number?” Give him a gospel tract and don’t talk to him. The next time some church boy comes to you trying to be your “boyfriend.” Tell him that you are looking for a husband-man, not a boy. Don’t accept any words from him until he grows up and comes correct.

Men: Raise your standard, get into God, get into your work, and stop playing games!

If this weren’t a necessary message, you would not have enjoyed reading it. Let’s be the generation to break the curses!

Rebellion sounds so negative… Why rebellion? I don’t know about that rebellion stuff, it sounds angry.

When we rebel, we don’t rebel against Godly authority. That would be sin. We rebel against the False Authority that is trying to reign over us: Sin Itself.

11: Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.
12: Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.
13: Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.
14: For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.
Romans 6

Right now, at this very moment: Sin is attempting to reign over you, and be your king and Master. In order to overthrow sins authority you must REBEL. Don’t Let Sin Reign. So many people are unaware of the fact that sin is actively trying to run their life. It’s always been there, so they think it has a right to be there. Others are aware of the intrusion, but they treat sin like it has so much power that they can’t avoid it.

I’ve felt the same way at times, but realize if God told you not to let sin reign, you must have enough power over it. With Christ you have the power to resist thoughts of sin with words of faith. You also have an infinite source of pleasure (GOD) that will cause you to forget sin if you focus on enjoying Him instead of on sin. Give your mouth, heart, and body to God.

11: You will show me the path of life: in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
Psalms 16:11

Just because you sing “gospel” or know how to act “churchy” doesn’t mean you are in Rebellion against sin. There are many gospel artists that are openly gay. There are many ministers that are hypocrites (actors in real life); they sin and they try their best to be just as lustful and prideful, and materialistic as the world is. That’s not what we do.

Rebellion against the world means you are so filled up with the love of God; you don’t need the lust of the eyes (body lust, brand names, and shiny things), the lust of the flesh (uncontrolled sexual desire), or the pride of life (status and notoriety) to get satisfaction. (See 1 John 2:15)

You aren’t trying to FIT IN with the world. You may speak the same language as, and identify with, and love people from the world, but you TESTIFY and live totally differently. As a Kingdom citizen you are NOT afraid of conflict in this area, and as a member of Christ’s Bride you WON’T be pimped into whoring yourself away from God. Of course, people of the world may hate you for it, but you love them anyway. That’s Rebellion against the world.

7: The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I TESTIFY of it, that the works thereof are evil.
John 7

Satan is a liar, and the father of all lies (John 8).

44: Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
John 8

Rebellion against satan is simply this: Exposing his Lies. Rebellion against satan is not passively expecting the lies to expose themselves, or waiting for satan’s messengers to give up and admit their deceptions. Rebellion is ACTIVELY shining light of the Word on the lies of satan. These lies of satan could be embedded in false religion, entertainment, secular or gospel music, movies, politics, economics, anything!

You have the power to expose these lies, and walk in the truth. The truth will crush satan’s lies every time, but only if you SPEAK it and WALK it. Rebellion against satan is also walking and crushing his head while you march forward in life with the gospel of Jesus Christ in your mouth.

15: And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
Ephesians 6
20: And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly.
Rom 16

I challenge you to live in Rebellion against Sin, the World’s lust, and Satan. Jesus is the King of all, and He has filled us with his Spirit to the Glory of our Creator. Soon, there will be no need for rebellion against sin… only the Enjoyment of Our King. Until then: REBEL!
