The Woman and the Manchild:
Key to Understanding the Church Age
The Bible: A Book by Spiritual Men for Children Becoming Men
Part of the problem concerning the various controversies has to do with interpretation of the Bible. The problem is that the Bible was written by spiritual men, yet for the most part its interpretation has been in the hands of the spiritual Woman.
It is impossible to truly understand the spirit of the Scriptures without partaking of the Word of the Father. The Scriptures were not written through the hearts of spiritual women. They were written through the hearts of spiritual men, men whose vision was to become reproducers of spiritual men. The book given to found and guide this spiritual age is primarily addressed to the Manchild.
Consider the New Testament. First are given four versions of the life of the Pattern Son, Jesus Christ. Almost all the remaining books are written by His handpicked followers whom He first ordained to become son producers like Himself. These are the apostles. Of these four—James, John, Peter, and Paul—the overwhelming majority of letters was written by Paul, the most spiritually masculine-natured of them all.
Because the New Testament was written by spiritual men, the preponderance of themes to which it speaks are about the discipleship it takes to become a mature son. They speak most to the love for truth and our separation from this world in anticipation of a kingdom to come.
All spiritually feminine themes in scripture are secondary. Themes dealing with the earth-based prong of God's interests and the pastoral concerns of God's heart for His People are set in context of the governing masculine themes: God's righteousness, election, and judgment; human repentance, and love for spiritual truth.
The New Testament was not written by pastors. None of its doctrine was formulated by anyone who had not received the word of the Father. Therefore, its focus is not on the needs and desires of the sheep even though it speaks to these. Yet the great incongruity of this spiritual age is that the masculine scriptures have been left in the hands of a spiritual Woman for interpretation, exposition, and application.
Because She has not entered into the word of the Father, the Church has been unable to relate to the primary masculine themes of the apostles. Therefore She has been prone to minimize, water-down the potency, and adjust those themes to her own soul-based nature. The Church has mostly ignored the hardcore discipleship words of the New Testament.
Where the Church has dared to interface with scripture's masculine themes, She has tended to redefine them in softer, less implicating terms by drawing on her pastoral affinity for God's love, mercy, and grace to obscure them. The plethora of earth-based theologies of this age from "dominion" to "prosperity" are the results of this feminine spiritual modification of masculine writings. (Any face-value glance of the New Testament reveals almost no direct lineage between the intents of the apostles and the earth-based theologies seeking support from their words.)
That is not to say that the seed revelation of these theologies is not from the Spirit. There is much earth-based comfort, edification, promise, and revelation from the Scriptures that the Spirit reveals to us as spiritual women. But we cannot enter into the foundational heart of the book without becoming spiritual men like the authors who penned it.
Without entering into the conception of sonship, our appreciation of scripture will be ever consigned to a circular earthbound path. No amount of anointed spiritual revelation on the Scriptures can change this. We can only have a breakthrough into the "Father-class" revelation of the Bible by receiving the word of the Father into our inner being.
