I Had a New Understanding of “The Head of the Woman Is the Man”

Learning of the Lord’s Return in the Midst of the Church’s Desolation

I started to believe in the Lord Jesus along with my mother when I was 13. Most of the time, we would go to small assemblies at a local house church, during which it was usually the brothers who gave sermons. At that time, I didn’t understand why there were no sisters who preached. Once, my mother took me to attend a big assembly where I heard the pastor say, “It is recorded in the Bible, ‘The head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God’ (1 Corinthians 11:3). This verse tells us that Christ is the head of the church. Since Jesus Christ is a male, this means men can take on authority. Therefore, the brothers are the head of the sisters and they are in charge of all the important church work, while the sisters can only cooperate with the work like visiting and supporting the believers, singing hymns and hosting….” Hearing him say this stirred my heart, and I thought: “So that’s how it is! No wonder the pastors, elders and preachers are all brothers while the sisters cannot give sermons on the podium. This is because the Bible says man is the head of woman. This really rings true. Woman was the first to be tempted to sin and thus they are unclean and are not qualified to take on those works.”

Is It That God Can Only Incarnate as a Man?

So, I asked straight out, “Brother, what you have fellowshiped these days is very good, and I have gained a lot from hearing it. But you say this time God has come as a woman, which I cannot totally accept. Back then, the Lord Jesus incarnated as a man, and moreover, it says in the Bible that women are cursed and cannot take on authority, so how could God become a woman to do His work?”

The Significance of God Incarnating as a Woman

Both my cousin and the brother nodded happily. The brother said, “Thanks be to God! God is wise and all of His work exceeds our imagination. If we are able to seek the truth in regard to our notions, it will bring joy to God. In fact, both male and female are created beings in God’s eyes and there is no distinction of superiority and inferiority amongst them. Let’s read a verse of the Scriptures and we will understand this better. In Genesis 1:27 it says: ‘So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them.’ This verse clearly tells us that God created both male and female in His own image, and it doesn’t say that He only created male and didn’t create female. Therefore, if we delimit God as male, doesn’t it contradict this verse? God is the Lord of creation, and no matter what gender His incarnation takes, it has significance. As for why it is that God has returned in the last days in female form to do His work, Almighty God’s word has opened up this mystery. Let’s read a passage and we’ll understand.
