And the Matriarchal Preemption
"Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD: And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse." Malachi 4:5-6
"And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord." Luke 1:17
From the beginning of creation, Satan knew that he could only rule the earth by usurping God's given authority. Since God's authority is patriarchal, Satan had to disempower the man to accomplish this goal and he has historically tried to use matriarchy to do this.
In the world today, there has risen a distaste in the mouths of both men and women for "patriarchy". It has become a dirty word. Yet, this is not a "man vs. woman" thing. Neither is it about being anti-woman. I am speaking of being for the things of God. Do we or do we not believe that God's ways are best for us and for our good? By that same token, do we or do we not believe that such which contradicts God's ways are wrong for us and intended for our destruction?
There is no gender inequality in God. Men and women are equal, but simply have different roles by which we work together as a reflection of the image of God. If we do not understand this, then we will miss out on God's individual purpose for our lives as well as be blind to Satan's attacks in this area, allowing the promotion of things like My Princess Boy.
I am going to speak bluntly in this article (and include videos which do the same). I am going to share things God has told me without great explanation and simply trust Him to reveal/confirm His truths to those with ears to hear.
In the world today, the advancement of women has been idealized as a reflection of the advancement of society as a whole. Therefore, women are being elevated - to the deliberate expense and exclusion of men - under a banner of social justice which I tell you has nothing to do with equality and everything to do with Satan's efforts to pervert mankind and alienate him from God. Understand that such efforts are not about correcting social ills, but are specifically calculated to bring about the end of men.
I have seen this unfolding for quite some time, but have been amazed at how many people are blinded to this blatant attack of the enemy.
For example, Oprah Winfrey was so concerned about the plight of underprivileged youth in South Africa that she established an exclusive, top-notch boarding school there...for girls only. The Leadership Academy for Girls aims to support "the development of a new generation of women leaders who, by virtue of their education and leadership, will lead the charge to positively transform themselves, their communities and the larger world around them."
As I watched news coverage of the school's opening four years ago, God spoke to me and told me that this was an abomination and was a spirit of lesbianism in operation. God asked me, "If Oprah is concerned that girls are being disenfranchised and devalued, then why would she not invest in educating both young girls and young boys to change these perceptions? Doesn't that make the most sense since they will after all have to live together in South African society? What is the end result of selectively grooming girls for leadership to the exclusion of boys?" It produces a society that marginalizes men and a generation of young women who see no need for them. Women's "empowerment" at men's expense is no more "equal" than men's "empowerment" at women's expense.
Notice, I am not saying that Oprah is a lesbian. I am saying that the spirit motivating her - whether she realizes it or not - is perversion. To the world, her actions simply looked like charitable, humanitarian works. To God, it stank to high Heaven because He can see what we cannot, namely the intents and thoughts of the heart.
And Oprah is not alone. We have done a series before on how the education system worldwide is attempting to brainwash our children so that they are: 1). Alienated from parents, 2). Estranged from traditional beliefs about God, and 3). Taught to be citizens of the world. A primary driver for this - as we reveal in that series - is the United Nation's Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) program called "Education For All" (EFA). And truly, the program's name is a misnomer for, although it champions a need to educate "all", its success is specifically measured in deferential treatment for girls as repeatedly stated in the EFA goals.
Should women be harassed, discriminated against, and under-educated? Of course not! Is gender bias real and often used to justify unthinkable acts against women? Yes! Is this absolutely wrong? You bet it is! Yet, it is a stroke of genius for Satan to induce the "sickness" so that he can offer the "cure". This way, he can entice people to drink down his damnable plan by disguising it as a "good" work. I ask again, do we or do we not believe that God's ways are best for us?
Consider this. Satan does not want equality; he is after emasculation for this is the only way he can maintain his illegitimate rule as the god of this world. He needs men who have been castrated and are subject to women. He needs men who are depreciated and powerless in their own eyes so that they abandon the authority God has given them in the home and in the church. He needs men who are more concerned about personal pleasure than being a disciple of God. He needs Adam.
And this reality is not the fault of the woman primarily, but of the man. The problem is not that women refuse to honor patriarchy, but that men themselves do not walk in it. Yes, it was Eve who was used by Satan to deceive, but it was Adam to whom God demanded an accountability of the fall. If a man is grounded in the Lord and submitting to Christ as his head, then no action of any woman could disrupt that.
We are looking at a mass programming of peoples globally to bring about the end of men. On TV, in the movies, in the music, in the news, in the churches, in the schools, in the governments...men are being held up as buffoons. They are being ridiculed, made fun of, and belittled in every possible venue...and I tell you that this is for a REASON!
Don't know what I mean? Take a look at the video below which examines "How to Construct a Matriarchy". As you watch this, I hope you notice 1). How men and women are depicted and; 2). How the author of the videos reacts to this propaganda.
Let me say that I am not in agreement with all of the author's points, however even some of his reactions to the "men are evil" paradigm is indicative of the success of Satan's plan. Remember, Satan provides the sickness so that people will also buy his cure. The "cure" for the woman is to think that all men are dogs and she doesn't need a man. The "cure" for men is to think that all women are self-seeking divas and he doesn't need a women. When we see animosity created between men and women, then we are seeing evidence that Satan's plan has succeeded.
The world tells you that the way to deal with social injustice is to elevate women and minimize men. The Bible shows us that the structure of the family (including the headship of the man) is the foundation for a Godly society. Whom will you believe?
I highly recommend that you take the time to view each of the videos below. You might ask if you have time to watch them, but I would say that you don't have the time not to. Take the time, and again, look past any incendiary language/opinion and just examine how the image of men is being reflected in our society.
You don't have to worry about clicking any links as referenced in the videos, as I have added the pertinent videos for you to review.
So, you might ask, what has me all riled up on this topic? It is an article which was forwarded to me this morning entitled, "The End of Men". Published by Hanna Rosin in July/August 2010, this article is summarized as follows:
Earlier this year, women became the majority of the workforce for the first time in U.S. history. Most managers are now women too. And for every two men who get a college degree this year, three women will do the same. For years, women’s progress has been cast as a struggle for equality. But what if equality isn’t the end point? What if modern, postindustrial society is simply better suited to women? A report on the unprecedented role reversal now under way— and its vast cultural consequences.While some might say that I should be encouraged about the advances of women in society, it literally made me sick to my stomach as I read it. In a nutshell, the article notes that the "superiority of women" over men is finally being realized as the world moves away from societal-driven (not God-given) roles in realizing that the better world is a world run by women.
How does the author know that the world is moving full speed ahead towards a matriarchy? Here are some snippets from the article upon which the author builds her case:
"Polling data on American sex preference is sparse, and does not show a clear preference for girls. But the picture from the doctor’s office unambiguously does. A newer method for sperm selection, called MicroSort, is currently completing Food and Drug Administration clinical trials. The girl requests for that method run at about 75 percent...“It’s the women who are driving all the decisions,” he says—a change the MicroSort spokespeople I met with also mentioned."You can read the entire article by clicking on the "End of Man" link above.
"For nearly as long as civilization has existed, patriarchy—enforced through the rights of the firstborn son—has been the organizing principle, with few exceptions...Now the centuries-old preference for sons is eroding—or even reversing. “Women of our generation want daughters precisely because we like who we are,” breezes one woman in Cookie magazine. Even Ericsson, the stubborn old goat, can sigh and mark the passing of an era. “Did male dominance exist? Of course it existed. But it seems to be gone now. And the era of the firstborn son is totally gone.”"
“Women live longer than men. They do better in this economy. More of ’em graduate from college. They go into space and do everything men do, and sometimes they do it a whole lot better. I mean, hell, get out of the way—these females are going to leave us males in the dust.”
"As thinking and communicating have come to eclipse physical strength and stamina [note that this implies that men do not "think" or "communicate"] as the keys to economic success, those societies that take advantage of the talents of all their adults, not just half of them, have pulled away from the rest. And because geopolitics and global culture are, ultimately, Darwinian, other societies either follow suit or end up marginalized. In 2006, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development devised the Gender, Institutions and Development Database, which measures the economic and political power of women in 162 countries. With few exceptions, the greater the power of women, the greater the country’s economic success. Aid agencies have started to recognize this relationship and have pushed to institute political quotas in about 100 countries, essentially forcing women into power in an effort to improve those countries’ fortunes. In some war-torn states, women are stepping in as a sort of maternal rescue team."
"In feminist circles, these social, political, and economic changes are always cast as a slow, arduous form of catch-up in a continuing struggle for female equality. But in the U.S., the world’s most advanced economy, something much more remarkable seems to be happening. American parents are beginning to choose to have girls over boys. As they imagine the pride of watching a child grow and develop and succeed as an adult, it is more often a girl that they see in their mind’s eye."
"Yes, the U.S. still has a wage gap, one that can be convincingly explained—at least in part—by discrimination. Yes, women still do most of the child care. And yes, the upper reaches of society are still dominated by men. But given the power of the forces pushing at the economy, this setup feels like the last gasp of a dying age rather than the permanent establishment. Dozens of college women I interviewed for this story assumed that they very well might be the ones working while their husbands stayed at home, either looking for work or minding the children. Guys, one senior remarked to me, “are the new ball and chain.”"
"We don’t yet know with certainty whether testosterone strongly influences business decision-making. But the perception of the ideal business leader is starting to shift. The old model of command and control, with one leader holding all the decision-making power, is considered hidebound. The new model is sometimes called “post-heroic,” or “transformational” in the words of the historian and leadership expert James MacGregor Burns. The aim is to behave like a good coach, and channel your charisma to motivate others to be hardworking and creative. The model is not explicitly defined as feminist, but it echoes literature about male-female differences. A program at Columbia Business School, for example, teaches sensitive leadership and social intelligence, including better reading of facial expressions and body language. “We never explicitly say, ‘Develop your feminine side,’ but it’s clear that’s what we’re advocating,” says Jamie Ladge."
"Since the 1980s, as women have flooded colleges, male enrollment has grown far more slowly. And the disparities start before college. Throughout the ’90s, various authors and researchers agonized over why boys seemed to be failing at every level of education, from elementary school on up, and identified various culprits: a misguided feminism that treated normal boys as incipient harassers (Christina Hoff Sommers); different brain chemistry (Michael Gurian); a demanding, verbally focused curriculum that ignored boys’ interests (Richard Whitmire). But again, it’s not all that clear that boys have become more dysfunctional—or have changed in any way. What’s clear is that schools, like the economy, now value the self-control, focus, and verbal aptitude that seem to come more easily to young girls."
"What would a society in which women are on top look like? We already have an inkling. This is the first time that the cohort of Americans ages 30 to 44 has more college-educated women than college-educated men, and the effects are upsetting the traditional Cleaver-family dynamics. In 1970, women contributed 2 to 6 percent of the family income. Now the typical working wife brings home 42.2 percent, and four in 10 mothers—many of them single mothers—are the primary breadwinners in their families. The whole question of whether mothers should work is moot, argues Heather Boushey of the Center for American Progress, “because they just do. This idealized family—he works, she stays home—hardly exists anymore.”"
I know that this has been a long article, probably the longest I have written so far. However, I do believe that this is a very important topic and one that Satan will continue to promote as we move closer to the end time sequences.
We must look at all things through God's eyes and not just what looks right in our own eyes. It is no wonder that the cry from God ushering in the coming of Christ is a return to patriarchy, a return to honoring our fathers. Satan's unrighteous rulership in this world will end, as will the matriarchal perversion which supports it. Don't be deceived by evil works dressed up to look like worldly good.
Matriarchy is a curse given from God because the people's "tongue and their doings are against the LORD" (Isaiah 3:8). In this judgment, God removes the patriarchs (the mighty man, the man of war, the judge, the prophet, the honorable man, etc.) and lets women rule so that the people will be led into error (Isaiah 3:1-12). Instead of turning to God with a heart of repentance, the people are rejoicing in what will bring about their destruction.
As the article states, the goal of feminism is not equality, or even matriarchy, but the "End of Men".
