The Head

Posted: May 11, 2012 in Uncategorized

You may be looking at this title of this article and ask yourself , the head of what? What is he talking about the head? Good thing ya asked, and so here is what I am talking about.

The head of the house, head of the church, and what this represents and what the bible actually says about a marriage and how it should be modeled after the relationship Christ has with the church.

The bible I am using is the King James Version the verses are, Ephesians 1:22,5:23-25, colosians 1:18 and  Genesis 1:26.

Many marriages seem to be falling apart almost in the same manner that the country if falling apart, and correct me if I am wrong, but they are falling apart for basically the same reason and this reason men are losing their position as leaders. due partially to the so called women’s lib ( women’s liberation) movement in the  early to late 70’s. The laws written now a days seem to only side with women, not to sound sexist in anyway but it’s true. I am for women working as hard as men, I am even supportive of women riding motorcycles, my wife rides now and loves it. I am saying the laws are not as equally viewed as they should be. Now it seems as though men are almost afraid to take charge of a house hold or even a corporation for fear they may say or do the wrong thing and if they do then the woman has the right to file a civil law suit against the male thus putting him in a position of public humiliation and the same is going on in the house hold where couples are doing the same thing mainstream corporate companies are doing and men are stepping aside and allowing women to run everything and this is not what God intended women to do. Let us look and see just exactly God wants for women. Now he does not say they aren’t capable of working outside the house, nor does he say they are the slaves of men and they must bow down to him and obey every word.

What God wants between women and men is the same model Jesus had with the church. I don’t recall the church bellowing out orders to him as if it were a drill sergeant, but what I have seen is just that between men and women and men feel fearful to say anything back in fear of the woman calling the cops and the embarrassment that comes to the man having to explain his actions and being treated like a mere criminal that is definitely not what he had in mind.

in Ephesians 1:22 it  says God put Jesus in charge of the church ( in charge in this context means head of) for the best interest of the church. Now you have Jesus as head of the church, but he shows his love and affection to the church thus showing us how men are to treat their wives. In verses 24-25 it says therefore as the church is subject unto Jesus, so let their wives be to their own husbands in everything. Now does this mean they must ask permission to go to the store? NO. It simply is saying as the church submits unto Jesus as a show of respect to his authority so should the wives in marriages. In verse 5:22 it says for the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church; and he is the savior of the body.

Now I am a husband and I am not off the hook so therefore neither is any other husband so now no one can say I am singling out women or men they are both equally to blame is this arena.

in verse 25 it says Husbands love your wives even as Christ loved the church and gave himself for it. Meaning we as husbands maybe required to make sacrifices for our wives just as they are to do the same for us.

in Genesis 1:26 God says let us make man in our own image and let them have dominion ove the fish of the sea and fowls of the air and over cattle and over every creeping thing that creepeth  upon the land., so in a way here is some what of an illistration of man being head of something even in the beginning of the earth upon creation.

God made woman from the rib of man in Genesis 2:26 when he caused a deep sleep to come over man and he took his rib and made a woman and presented her to man and Adam said this is now bone of my bone, and flesh of my flesh and she was called woman because she was taken out of man. now the reason for the creation of woman was to give man a help meet meaning she would be a helper comparable to man, but yet different because God only intended women to bare children not men. Women are the nurturing softer part of man known as the feminine side where as men are masculine and tough by nature. So we now have a balance and this is the way God intended it to be but now the evil powers that be intend to tip the scale of balance or even  enialate  the scales altogether. How is this ? I heard president Obama has approved gay marriage which is an abomination to God and could be the destructive move that will devastate the marriage relationship God had intended for us to keep. So we are all equally guilty and could and should be judged accordingly however we are under grace and if we were to change this whole scenario we would I think fall back under God’s favor by walking back to him with a sincere heart of repentance. Until next time as always keep the rubber side down and may God richly pour out the blessings of heaven upon you.
