Yes, you women of the Kingdom, you also are called to be sons of God, by virtue of the Spirit which is in you and by which you are led, the Holy Spirit, which is a male-dominant spirit. According to God’s purpose at the separation, you must learn how to do that from us men, by being submissive and teachable, supportive without being manipulative, not seeking to dominate the men God places over you.

The desire to dominate is a part of the curse given by God to Eve, the “female curse,” the result of the original sin, and now a part of the female fallen nature. “… Yet your desire [to dominate] shall be for [against] your husband, and he shall rule over you [dominate you].” (Gen. 3:16) Ultimately it must be the Holy Spirit Himself who rises up within you and leads you to act above and beyond your own female nature, to accomplish mighty acts in the Kingdom, to pray and prophesy with the proper authority on your head (1 Cor. 11:5), to teach the principles of the Kingdom (especially to the younger women and your own children, but also to anyone whom the Spirit leads you to teach) (Tit. 2:3-4), and even to judge (discern the truth and apply the law of the land). (Judges 4:4)

And us men? Well, guess what? We must enter the Kingdom a bit differently. We are called to be the Bride of Christ! (Rev. 19:7) We are called to sit at Jesus’ feet and learn from Him, for He is gentle and humble in heart. (Matt. 11:29)

How can we do that? By loving our wife as our own flesh, nourishing her and cherishing her, (Eph. 5:25-29) dwelling with her in understanding, (1 Pet. 3:7) and yes, even submitting ourselves one to another in the fear (reverence) of Christ. (Eph. 5:20) We men sometimes have a tough time learning such things as humility, meekness, teachableness, sensitivity to the spirit, and so on, which you women tend to take for granted because it is part of your dominant nature. We must learn from you.
