Genesis 1:27 says, ‘So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.’
Man was formed by God, as a potter forms the clay. But God painstakingly ‘built’ woman – a true creation by the hand of God specifically for the covenant of marriage.
Women throughout biblical history were mightily used by God; Eve is the mother of mankind, Esther saved the Jews, Rahab hid the spies from the King of Jericho, Bathsheba* gave us the blueprint of a Godly woman, Mary birthed our Savior, the Samaritan woman became the first Preacher of the Gospel to the Gentiles, Phoebe held the future of Christian Theology – the epistle of Romans – in her robes, and Mary Magdalene was the first person that Jesus appeared to as the risen Lord.
But just as God utilized women to further the Kingdom, Satan has used women to destroy mankind; even the ‘mother’ of man believed Satan’s deceit and thus – the fall of man. Satan is still using women to destroy mankind through pro-choice legislators and feminists and not so surprisingly…after all, Satan did tell Eve, ‘For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.**’ Is knowledge power? Satan is patient; he uses abortion and abortion law to kill mankind one baby at a time. He uses guilt, lies and the law to keep women oppressed and dependant on themselves instead of a Sovereign God.
Oh…but my dear Post Abortive Woman, realize that God uses those that have sinned greatly to be grand matriarchs to His Kingdom! And they weren’t always so virtuous or perfect in the eyes of the world:
- Rahab – common harlot
- Bathsheba – adulterer
- Samaritan Woman – living with a man that is not her husband
- Mary Magdalene – demon possessed
Genesis 3:14-15 says, (v14)‘The LORD God said to the serpent, “Because you have done this, cursed are you above all livestock and above all beasts of the field; on your belly you shall go, and dust you shall eat all the days of your life. (v15)I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring; he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel.”
Through a woman came a Risen Savior! And it takes a Savior to change the heart of a woman to save her baby.
