My Reply to a Comment against female teachers under a post on my (I, a female) blog

Introduction

I woke early this morning and noted that there was a comment Left that I had to moderate. It was placed under my Post entitled “Remembering the Goodness of God”.

At first I was just going to delete it, but I thought, “no I will reply to it.”

COMMENT BY Mypbbooks: 1 Timothy 2:12-14 King James Version 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.

My Reply: I have been called as a prophet and teacher by Almighty God. So go tell that to Him who created Paul the Apostle and called Deborah the prophet and several women e.g Kathleen Kulhmann, Cindy Jacobs etc… Many women as men have been and are still a blessing in ministry worldwide, there is no space here to give examples.

God so loved the world that He sent His only begotten son that who so ever (not ONLY MEN) believes in him will not perish but have everlasting life (John 3:16). In Yeshua (Jesus), there is no Greek, Jew, Male or Female… (Galatians 3:28) we are all one to fulfil our purposes. Almighty God created Paul and Jesus is greater than Paul.

Know this truth today, as God wants you to be instructed with it, sir, the Apostle Paul made that statement you quote from 1 Timothy 2 in the context of what was happening at the time. It does not mean that all women called by God should stop what they are doing in Service to God who called them; Paul also approved of several women ministers (yet you forget that) which confirms that in 1 Timothy 2:12-14 he was speaking about what was happening at the specific time and not against all females teaching. Even if he genuinely was against females teaching which I doubt (I have stated earlier that there are many examples of his approval) that was his humanly opinion not God’s because it contradicts God’s truth and purpose for all humanity;

The calling of God is not specific to any gender; when Abraham was called, (Genesis 12;1-3)God said his descendants will bless nations, not just MALE descendants. Matthew 28:19-21 the Great commission by Christ to his disciples does not state ONLY MEN should be in service to God, does it?

The five fold ministerial gifts /call to service in Ephesians 4:11-13 is a calling to service of God Almighty for MALE AND FEMALE and is not only for the MALE gender. Therefore your comment with 1 Timothy 2:12-14 under my post in which you attempt to end my calling to teach (people have done worst things to try to silence me, sir) because you think by me fulfilling my calling of God is usurping male authority is not from God Almighty who called me.

Sir, I forgive you but I must state the following:

For you to ignore all Apostle Paul’s references to female teachers/ministers which had no hint of disapproval and just stick to this one scripture 1 Timothy 2 as if it was the sole biblical authority prohibiting female ministers (it is yours and some other people’s false and out of context interpretation of scripture) shows that you need Holy Spirit inspired teaching and to overcome a deepset fear of women in minister which is rooted in false teaching you received.

Females who have blogs and teaching ministries are not usurping a man’s authority, we are doing what God has called us to do. Should we refrain because a man like you feels threatened? And why do you feel threatened instead of focusing on the blessed message God is using us, as well as men to bring to all, you included?

You need deliverance sir, seek God about this. Spend precious time with Him, He will instruct you. Jesus said to his disciples then and this message is for us now; “You will know the truth and the truth will set you free”(John 8:31-32). Seek God alone through the scriptures (I have quoted some here and expounded on them) not false ministers for the truth and you will be set free.

I will never refrain from my God given call to please anyone, male or female, will you?

God bless you abundantly,

Deborah Esther Nyamekye

In This Season

In this season of festivity,

where shopping is in abundance,

let love spill and share with those in lack and deemed irrelevant.

In this season of nativity,

where carol singing is in abundance,

let minds be still and focus on Christ as Saviour, the reason for this season of Joyance.

The Angel Gabriel said of Mary to Joseph “She will bear a Son; and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.” (Matt.1:21)

Prayer of Thanksgiving & Praise unto God (based on Psalms 125 & 126)

Merciful Father,

We give you thanks and praise for you have delivered us from captivity, that we may sing praises to you, that our mouths may be filled with laughter.
People see what you have done and say among themselves “the LORD has done great things for them” (Ps.126:2).

May some who are enemies be like Rahab LORD and turn from their wicked ways, when they hear of your might and power in our lives.

May they show us favour and accept your Right Hand and be set free, washed and cleansed by the blood of Jesus. 

We are more than conquerors! 

We give you thanks and praise! We shout for joy because “the LORD has done great things for us and we are glad” (Ps. 126:3).

When we sowed in tears there were times when we thought that we would never overcome. 

But how dare we, for we serve a God who is oh so faithful, one who never changes. He is the same yesterday today and forever more. 

You said in your word “those who trust in the LORD are like Mount Zion, which cannot be moved but abides forever.”(Ps 125:1).

We trust you LORD! 

You are our Protector, always surrounding us as the mountains surround Jerusalem.

Father you decreed that “the sceptre of wickedness shall not rest on the land allotted to the righteous” (Ps.125:3).

You have preserved us from evil, from the decrees of the powers of darkness by your mighty power. 

May your presence abide with us forever more!

In Jesus’ Mighty Name, Amen.

Happiness is Knowing… Almighty God Brings Peace

Microsoft Bing Pic

Happiness is indeed knowing that God brings peace. Receive God’s Peace like a River in and through you! 

I pray for God’s peace to flow in a never ending manner like a river that forms tributaries into the recesses of your soul (mind, intellect and emotions) so that you would experience a perpetual Sabbath rest of the LORD.

In this place, you will receive revelation from the LORD directly and through His Word so that out of you shall flow rivers of living waters quenching the spiritual thirst of dry souls and hearts making a people ready for the coming of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

There is no peace like God’s peace. Attempts at world peace without God as the source is just a charade and superficial for sooner or later confusion and chaos sets in. This is why Jesus explicitly distinguished his peace from that of the world when he said such comforting words

“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” (John 14:27KJV)

As a believer in Christ you have His mind which means your mind or thoughts are focused on God. You therefore have access to God’s peace (Is.26:3) which is perfect.

God speaks His peace in every situation of your life, however He requires that you do not “again turn to folly” (Ps 85:8).

To live a life in God’s perpetual peace, He wants you to know that you need to be determined to overcome anxiety. How? Prayer to God concerning all things (Phil 4:6), while praying be thankful of what you have already received from Him. 

If you can’t think of anything in a moment how about your life? Your caring child, spouse,family or your job ? Also trust Him once you have prayed. It is only after you have done this that

“…the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”(Phil 4:7)

God of Peace be with you!

POEM: RECEIVE THE MASTER’S PEACE

Be anxious for nought and pray for what you ought. God’s peace will unfold as a treat, if a slave to worry you are not.
Peace like a barging river, shall knock down fortes of deceit in your heart to cause the enemy to retreat.
Peace like a fighter plane shall land on the combat fields of your soul to dethrone the Prince of this World, end the cycle of disorder to commence divine order.
A peace foreign to this world in chaos because it knows not it’s Master and his ethos.

Who is it’s Master?
He is the Prince of Peace who saith to his own “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you”.
On a mount he sat and taught
“blessed are the peacemakers they shall be called children of God” So be blessed, not stressed.
Do not retaliate but demonstrate his love to haters.
Trade anger with prayer for users and live to unite dividers. With your mates create colonies in a bond of peace and be the harmonies to iron out melodious creases.
Blessed vessel of peace, wrestle for the increase of God’s government and peace to have no end.

(Isaiah 9:6-7, Phil 4:6-7 Matt.5:43-48, John 14:27)

You Are All that Matters

What is life worth
if I focus on trivial factors and concern myself with mere structures
but ignore that You are all that matters?

What will I become if I am conformed to the dictates of this world and
I am intimate with evil doers but ignore that You are all that matters?

You are the engine that sustains me along destiny path,
the lifeboat that keeps me afloat, the air that I breath and the ever-flowing
fountain that quenches my thirst.

Indeed You, Yahweh are all that matters.

TODAY’S VERSE (John 8:31-32) & EXHORTATION

I gave thanks and praise to God for He sent Jesus as the Word made flesh, for us to have a tangible example as to how to live our lives according to His will.

Jesus is the Word of Truth through whom we gain knowledge of the truth about who God is and who we are predestined to be as children of God.

Are you a disciple of Jesus? If so then you can partake of divine revelation in regards to God’s truth to overcome every lie about who you are and the world because abiding in Him results in revelation knowledge directly communicated to us by Father God and obtained through meditation on scriptures,

May we continue to abide in the Word, be students of the bible so as to know the truth and be set free from curses and deception in Jesus’ mighty name Amen!

Verse (1 Corinth.10:13); Exhortation

Hi there,
God has given born again believers the strength we need to overcome every affliction.

Firstly we are His and therefore He is our protector and sustainer and secondly because we have the indwelling Holy Spirit, who is God himself strengthening us by His power, so that we can bear every affliction until it is over.

Think of the wisdom we acquire as we stay close to God during our times of affliction.
God says He will never leave us nor forsake us.
Have a blessed day

As He is So Are They…

There are a people whose frustrations flip flop into praise. Their tears become cascades of overflowing joy.

Their words once cutting and ice cold causing shivers down the spine, now like a warm bath, inviting and soothing.

Their lifestyles read like verses bearing witness to their Master, the Anointed Saviour.

They are more than conquerors through him who loves them, the Redeemer and Lord of the Armies of Heaven.

Onward they march triumphant, generals of the LORD’s army.Clad in armours of divine strength and gifted with the know how of the Master, they advance towards battlefields.

Victory is their battle cry, as they wave flags of redemption, freeing captives, disarming enemies and taking territories.

As He is so are they.

Verse (Luke 4:32) & Exhortation


Prioritising the Word of God personified

As New Covenant believers, our priority is the Word of God, the only way to God is through Yeshua (Jesus) who is the Word that came to dwell among us (John chapter 1).

Indeed as a youth, Yeshua manifested the wisdom and stature of God as he discussed with the religious leaders and as we read in Luke 4:32, he astonished the hearers of His teachings. While he performed miracles, Yeshua consistently taught and he is therefore the only source of Elohim God’s truth that sets free (John 8:31-32) for his disciples.

May we live lives meditating on the Word, the scriptures that is, and the life of Yeshua himself who is the Word personified, doing our best to live as he lived in humble obedience to Father.

In addition, let us not forsake fellowship with the Spirit of God for He is God, His power that guides, guards us and reminds us of the teachings of Yeshua, our Messiah and LORD.

Blessings to you and yours,
Deborah x 

The Bride’s Song – My Beloved & I


The Bride’s Song – My Beloved & I

“I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine”
His only begotten Son He sent to prove His love for me.
A Son so compassionate, he took my place on a tree,
With nail pierced limbs and blood drenched scars,
He gave up the ghost.
I was with him in betrayal, mockery and shame.
One with him in the grave, released by his power
free to escape on his train.
I am with him in liberty.
One with him in glory,
with the keys of heaven and earth,
forever to conquer and reign.
Free from shackles of sin,
with a signet ring betrothed to my redeemer groom,
forever to sing:
“I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine”

(The Gospels, Is.53, Song of Songs 6:3)
