ORDER in the Family and ORDER in the Congregation

ORDER IN THE FAMILY

Word to my Sisters, your prophetic gift does not make you the head of your home. Subtle or aggressive tactics to lead your husband will bring confusion and disorder into your house. If you see something he does not, pray, fast and ask God to open his eyes. God is honored when we follow HIS ordained order. #StayInPosition

ORDER IN THE CONGREGATION

Immature prophetic gifts often try to run and ruin congregations. But they are not always biblically qualified elders with sound doctrine and order.
I love Prophecy, tongues & interpretation, etc. I’ve been around it for decades. I’m just learning how to love decency and order as well. Because that’s how you bear the best fruit possible. There’s too many gifted people with messed up lives, messed up marriages, and messed up families.#spiritandtruth #decencyandorder

1 Timothy 2:12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.
13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve.
14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.
15 Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.

1 Timothy 3:1 This is a true saying, if a man desire the office of a bishop (overseer, elder), he desireth a good work.
2 A bishop (overseer, elder) then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;
3 Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;
4 One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;
5 (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)
6 Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil.
7 Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.

But Aren’t There Women Apostles in the Bible?

Gifts are different than offices. There are women Apostles in the Bible but they were in decency and order. They weren’t on their own, they served on teams in submission to Elders (Overseers) such as Apostle Paul, Aquila, Andronicus etc…

Authority, Structure, Order, Accountability

If you are not comfortable with Godly authority, healthy accountability, and structural order – check your character. Something’s missing.

Psalm 68:6 God setteth the solitary in families: he bringeth out those which are bound with chains: but the rebellious dwell in a dry land.
