I want to touch on TWO MATTERS! One; the word “Amen” and, Second; “Chief Cornerstone”
There are so many occult parallels of THE TRUTH that many people, especially Believer’s start to believe a lie. This is EXACTLY how Satan works. He loves to guide people away from GOD. And considering he is the father of lies…this is not hard to believe.

The Father of Lies [link]

How is he the ‘father of lies’? He first told Eve that she could be ‘more than’ what GOD had created her as. She was already immortal, (until she sinned)…but Lucifer/Satan convinced her that she could become a god, herself. This is the first lie that Satan told mankind that we believed and we are so gullible that we’re still believing his lies. After all, he’s had thousands of years to perfect his art/craft…or should I say witchcraft.
All the false religions of the world were given to us by Satan. This is how he leads so many astray. Once you begin by putting that seed of doubt….remember “Doubting Thomas”?…that seed grows. And a steady flow of lies will help it to fester into a full grown tree of lies that humanity has eaten from since the beginning.
What initiated this article?
I saw a post, the person will remain nameless…it really doesn’t matter. The point of the matter is this…there are obviously people who NEED to know the TRUTH. The only Truth comes from GOD.


Everything else is a poser! An illusion of the truth. A LIE.
The phrase “Amen” used by Christians in prayers or in agreement to something spoken by another in worship sounds like the name of the ancient Egyptian idol god Amen-Ra.


What are we to think of such a claim? The phrase Amen does sound like the idol’s name, to be sure, but it was not derived from the Egyptian name and has quite a different meaning and usage. Before explaining the differences, let’s take another example of a word that looks the same but has a different origin and meaning.


Those who have studied English and French anglophones and francophones living side-by-side as we do, are probably familiar with phrases that are called false friends. They look so much alike that it is easy to assume that one know the meaning of the word in the other language. Yet they are very different and can easily lead to severe problems in communication if the differences are not understood. An excellent example is the English verb demand compared with the French verb demander. The two words look so much alike that one might easily conclude they are virtually the same. French speakers, especially, might use the English word demand in inappropriate settings, because the French word demander means just to ask or request. It’s a very polite word, one that can be used with any person. The English word demand, on the other hand, has a forceful insistence, an expectation of obedience about it that is quite contrary to the spirit and meaning of the French word demander. A native French-speaker might quite innocently demand something of an English speaker and would likely be quite surprised and bewildered at the negative response he would receive. In English, one can only demand something when he is in a higher position so that he is able to command obedience from another. An employer might demand something of an employee, for example, but an employee cannot demand something from his employer. A parent can demand that a child do something, but a child cannot demand obedience from his parent. In reality, the two words, although they look alike, do not mean the same thing. French demander simply means to request something, while English demand means to command that it must be done.


The word Amen might be called another false friend in the linguistic sense. Because it looks like the name of the idol Amen-Ra, some traditionalists have claimed that Christians are using the name of their idoland giving homage to their idol in their prayers. Reminds me of an impostor.
This is not so.
The words look alike in English, and may even be pronounced in the same or similar ways. Yet they are not the same word and they definitely do not have the same meaning.
Amen used in Christian worship comes not from Egyptian, but from Hebrew. It is derived from three Hebrew consonants: leph (’), mem (m), and nun (n). The basic idea of the root mn is firmness or certainty. Mn denotes something that is sure and unchanging. From it comes the verb amen which means to make something sure or established.
Amen is the adverb form with the same meaning. Sometimes it is translated verily or surely in our Bibles. Often this word is not translated but simply transliterated in the Greek. This means that the meaning is not given, but the letters are simply changed from Hebrew into Greek characters. When we say amen, we are recognizing that what GOD says is true and unchangeable, and we are expressing agreement with His Word. Amen at the end of a word means much more than just that the prayer is finished. It also expresses a desire that the prayer be surely accomplished. When we hear a truth from GOD’s Word and shout Amen! we show that we agree with what GOD said. It is an act of lining ourselves up with His will which is good, and acceptable, and perfect.


The Egyptian idol Amen-Ra had quite a different origin and meaning. At first, Amen was known in Egypt as a local god or spirit who controlled the wind. The name means that which is unseen (as the wind is unseen). In contrast, the English word Amen comes to us from the Hebrew and emphasizes the faithfulness and dependability of God the Creator. It is used sometimes as a title of Jesus Christ celebrating His faithfulness, as in Revelation 3:14 in the Bible:


These things says the Amen, the faithful and true witness…
It was used by Jesus Christ to emphasize the absolute dependability of His words. In this case the Hebrew word Amen is translated verily or truly. The best known example of this usage is found in John 3:3 in the Bible:
Verily, verily, I say unto you, you must be born again.


But the most common usage of the word is as a response or conclusion to something stated. Since the word has come from the faithful, dependable God who never fails, Christians often say Amen to show agreement with a prayer or utterance. In this sense Amen means Agreed! Let it be. The Hebrew word and the use of the term Amen amongst Jews and Christians is far removed from the meaning of the Egyptian idol Amen and implies no allegiance to him or recognition of him. To the contrary, Amen means that the speaker is acknowledging the faithfulness of the One Supreme Creator GOD who speaks and acts with authority, and who is always able to bring His word to pass.
The word or root amen, certainly means “what is hidden,” “what is not seen,” “what cannot be seen,” and the like, and this fact is proved by scores of examples which may be collected from texts of all periods. The Egyptian idol Amen is compared with the wind. He’s not only unseen, he’s also unsteady and undependable.
It’s the exact opposite picture that the Amen of our wonderful Creator GOD presents. The One True and Living God is steadfast, sure, and immovable. To that I am not ashamed to say AMEN!


Are you still a “Doubting Thomas”?
A doubting Thomas is a skeptic who refuses to believe without direct personal experience—a reference to the Apostle Thomas, who refused to believe that the resurrected Jesus had appeared to the ten other apostles, until he could see and feel the wounds received by Jesus Christ on the cross.
John 20 (KJV)
24 But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came.
25 The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe.
26 And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you.
27 Then saith He to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing.
28 And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.
29 Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen Me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.
30 And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this book:
31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through His name.
Regardless of the question of whether Thomas had felt as well as “seen” the physical evidence of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ asserts the superiority of those who have faith without physical evidence, he was nonetheless willing to show Thomas his wound, and let him feel it. This is called FAITH.


Chief Cornerstone
Ephesians 2 (KJV)
20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;
The cornerstone (or foundation stone) concept is derived from the first stone set in the construction of a masonry foundation, important since all other stones will be set in reference to this stone, thus determining the position of the entire structure. The cornerstone according to an architect is either at the top of bottom of a building. And when you scan a Freemason building, it’s going to be there! But a chief cornerstone is at the top of an apex…or pyramid, or capstone.
So, the chief cornerstone is the place in which all other corners come together.

In the modern construction of building there is no place where all four corners are joined, but there is such a place in ancient constructions. The ancient construction in which there is a joining of four corners is in the pyramid. The joining of the four corners does not take place on the ground, but at the top. But, you see this is HOW the whole lie started. The reason for the confusion. More on this further down.

This symbolizes that we must all conform to the way and will of Jesus Christ, the Chief Cornerstone. All other stones represent different levels of GOD’s people. There were only 3 in Jesus Christ’s “inner circle” and only twelve as original apostles. As the levels descend, there are an increasing number that fall in that category. Basically the levels are as indicated in 1 Corinthians 12:28. There is only One Jesus Christ. The next smallest group is Apostles, and then everyone else. And this doesn’t make the Apostles ‘special’ because they were just like us!
The understanding of the structure shows that the focus of the worship is not on the ground but in the heavens. Therefore the focal point in which comes in contact with man is not located at the bottom, but at the top. If were located at the bottom, there would be four possible corners on which the focus would rest, but the focus is in the heavens, and as such there is only one stone through which all the others must direct their focus.


Finally, there is a reference to the fact that this stone is a stone of stumbling and a rock of offense (1 Peter 2: 7 & 8). This refers to the fact that in the construction of a pyramid, the first stone to be cut is the chief cornerstone. All others must be made to conform to its dimensions. What this creates is a situation in which that one stone is left lying around the construction site until the very end of the work. It was often stumbled over by workmen who let themselves forget that it was there.
There are many who let themselves forget that Jesus Christ is actually there in their lives, so when they start to stray too far, the stumble over the fact what they are doing is not in keeping with the will of Jesus Christ, The Chief Cornerstone. The stone then becomes not only a stone of stumbling, but it the thing that identifies that fact that a person if doing wrong. It becomes the rock of offense. That which judges right from wrong. To the pyramid builders, this was the chief cornerstone. To GOD’s people, this is Jesus Christ.


There is another reference to this chief cornerstone in which it is not referred to as the chief cornerstone, but it is identified as such through its actions. This reference is in the book of Daniel 2:34, in which the king has a vision of a great image.
This image or colossus represents all of the kingdoms that will oppress Israel from the Babylonian kingdom through the kingdom of the Revised Roman Empire, which is headed by the AntiChrist.
In masonry, you have the origins of secret societies….it actually began with the construction of the Tower of Babel. Nimrod began with secret meetings of which he organized a hierarchy of high priests who laid a foundation of rebellion against GOD which exists unto this very day. That was the World Union or as some call it, The New World Order. Their structure of these secret organizations take their lead from principalities, or wicked fallen angels and demons. I classify them as ALL DEMONS. If you’re not WITH GOD then you’re against HIM! Then, you’re a demon. Of course, I speak of the supernatural in this respect. If you research this site you will gain a new perspective on these demons and how they work.


So, Freemasonry derives from these secret organizations. And they were the architects of the pyramids. They speak in terms of operative and speculative. This means…the natural and spiritual.
Their beliefs are such that they believe in a ‘divine spark’…or in symbolic terms, a cube. True. Sounds strange but it’s true. Among the pagan mythologists, Mercury, or Hermes, was always represented by a cubical stone and this is the origin of their ‘blueprint’, so to speak.
When they speak of building a temple, it’s called a ‘lodge’. And this stems from the Ascended Masters theology.
Every Speculative Mason is familiar with the fact that the east, as the source of material light, is a symbol of his own order.
What does the Bible say about the ‘east’…
Matt.24 (KJV)
27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
We know that Satan duplicates and twists everything in GOD’S Plan. So, the east has to be part of his plan too:


Revelation 16 (KJV)
12 And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.
The Euphrates River is the eastern border of the land God gave to Abraham (Gen. 15 v.18). It is about 1800 miles long and so large that it forms a natural barrier against the armies of the world, even though it’s drying up now just as the Bible predicts. Most people are not particularly conscious of the fact that it served as the eastern border of the Roman Empire. The sixth bowl judgment will dry up that river to make way for the “kings of the East.”
These kings from the east have befuddled Bible prophecy scholars for many years, for few scholars mentioned anything about them.
Terms like “kings from the east” really means “kings for the rising sun,” and this is countries who in particular worship idols, namely the sun! However, it is more natural to consider the term “rising sun” as a synonym for east. The Euphrates River, one of the first rivers mentioned in the Bible, has served for centuries as the natural dividing line between East and West.

16:13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs [come] out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.
16:14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, [which] go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.
You see, it tells you here that these are “spirits of devils”. In other words, they are the followers of the devil. Demons are the fallen angels who followed Lucifer out of heaven. These “spirits of devils” have power to do miracles, just like the Egyptian magicians copied some of Moses’ miracles. Their power is limited, just as was the Egyptians. When Moses threw his rod down and it became a snake, the Egyptians threw two rods down and they became snakes. The only difference was that Moses’ snake swallowed their snakes, Exodus 7:9 -12.
16:15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed [is] he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.


Luke 21 (KJV)
28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
Scripture states is a time when men’s hearts will be failing them for fear directly before the Eastern sky splits.
The Romans were like an eagle, and the ensign of their armies was an eagle. And when these demons with the wings like eagles, coming for the battle, so to will the false messiah come from the east. So, I believe the FALSE RAPTURE will occur just like this! They will believe it’s Jesus Christ…


Masons believe:
“…but the modern utterance of an ancient thought, for it was always believed that the empire of truth and knowledge was advancing from the east to the west.”
This is because the whole so-called New Age Movement began in the East. A man named Baird Thomas Spaulding wrote “Life and Teaching of the Masters of the Far East”. In 1894, eleven scientists claimed to have made contact with “the Great Masters of the Himalayas”, immortal beings with whom they lived and studied, gaining insight into their lives and spiritual message. His books helped popularize the concept of the Ascended Masters which became a common meme in New Age and alternative religious movements.

To the Masons:
“The stone, therefore, thus properly constructed, is, when it is to be deposited by the constituted authorities of our order, carefully examined with the necessary implements of operative masonry,–the square, the level, and the plumb,–and declared to be “well-formed, true, and trusty.”
This is a reminder of the All-Seeing Eye…atop the pyramid. This is their god…Satan. Freemasons were our founders here in the United States of America. In “The Secret Destiny of America”…it is stated:
“In the city of Atlantis stood the temple of Poseidon, and in it a golden figure of the god. In this shrine also stood a column of precious substance inscribed with the laws of enduring empire. The ten kings took their oath together to obey these laws, and they chose one of their number, usually of the family of Atlas, to be the chief of their league.”
“In this way Plato describes the government of the Golden Age, in which men live on Earth according to the laws of Heaven.”
“By the three continents of Atlantis are to be understood, Europe, Asia, and Africa; and by the seven islands, all the lesser peoples of the earth. The league of the ten kings is the cooperative commonwealth of mankind, the natural and proper form of government. The Atlantis, therefore, is the archetype or the pattern of right government, which existed in ancient days but was destroyed by the selfishness and ignorance of men.”
“The king was descended of a divine race; that is, he belongers to the Order of the Illumined; for those who come to a state of wisdom then belong to the family of heroes-perfected human beings.”
“The old Atlantis was gone, dissolved in a sea of human doubts. But the philosophic empire would come again, as a democracy of wise men.”
Among these remarks are this; “The perfect state disappeared under a deluge of politics; the priests of Poseidon gave way to the priesthood of Mammon.”
These kings? Fallen angels and Nephilim (hybrids). This was from the hint of the divine race. I believe this priesthood is none other than the Knights of Templar/Freemasons/Rosicrucians/Illuminati and of course the derivative of these. They are inclusive of one another.


So, I expect some to acknowledge the bulk of this information but there will be the people who TROLL the internet who will come to discredit but…Truth is inspiring, it is guarded by GOD, and will triumph over all opposition!

The conclusion of the vision is that a stone is hewn from a mountain, then that stone smites the image on the foot, causing the entire colossus to crumple. This stone is Jesus Christ, and His kingdom is the “Stone” or millennial kingdom.
It is Jesus Christ return that destroys the kingdom of the AntiChrist, and then rules. This does not imply that He isn’t in control…He’s always in control.


Omnipresent, Omnipotent, and Omniscient
What Is The Meaning of Omnipresence?
omni = all. All-present, or everywhere present at same time. GOD is not confined to space, just as not confined to time. GOD is NOT equivalent to any part of creation or inclusively, as a whole, or all of it. Pantheist: God is everything and everything is God. No, God is present everywhere in His creation, but distinct from it. Like water in a sponge. Water present in sponge, but not the sponge.
What is the Meaning of Omniscience?
Omni = all; all knowledge. GOD knows everything. HE’S only Being that knows everything. Nothing hidden, overlooked, escapes HIS notice.
What is the Meaning of Omnipotent?
Potent = powerful. All-powerful. Means GOD is able to do whatever HE wants to do. GOD never needs replenishing…such as we need to sleep and eat. HE does not.


1And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; 2Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: 3Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others. 4But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, 5Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) 6And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: 7That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. 8For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9Not of works, lest any man should boast. 10For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.


One in Christ
11Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands; 12That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world: 13But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. 14For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; 15Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; 16And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby: 17And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh. 18For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.


A Temple in the Lord
19Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God; 20And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; 21In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: 22In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.



We spend billions each year on our appearance. Gym memberships, dieting programs that may or may not work, new clothes and more. Don’t get me wrong, we should care how we look. But, what do our marriages look like? More importantly, where does our marital health rank on the list of To-Do’s? Instead of our bodies and physical appearance being top priorities, what if we put that focus on our marriages instead?


The hardest part of parenting, that no one seems to want to warn you about, is the strain children have on your marriage. Children can come between you and your spouse. For us, it’s quite literal. I can’t seem to hug my wife without my 4-year-old butting in between us to make a “sandwich.”


As the years go by, the children naturally become our focus, making it easy to lose sight of each other. We don’t take the time or energy necessary to stay connected.


But, this trend can be stopped if you give your marriage a “check up.” I believe there are seven words that, if applied to our marriages, have the power to make this year the best year we have ever experienced as a couple.


1. Initiate. Remember the courtship? Make an effort to woo your spouse all over again. So many marriages fall apart because people just stop trying.
“Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to do it” (Proverbs 3:27).


2. Prioritize. What is your top priority? It’s where you devote the majority of your time or energy. Turn off the television and put down your iPhone. Your email and updating your Facebook status can wait.
“Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves” (Philippians 2:3).


3. Communicate. In a successful marriage, you have to fight the urge to sweep things under the rug. Don’t allow things to fester. Instead, keep an open line of communication. When we have“sounding boards” who aren’t our spouses, sure, we might feel a little better, but we are doing nothing to actually resolve situations or improve our relationship.
“From a wise mind comes careful and persuasive speech” (Proverbs 16:23).


4. Listen. The most important part of communicating doesn’t involve speaking; it’s listening. Your spouse wants to be heard. How can you know what he or she is feeling if you don’t take the time to listen. All too often, many of us are too quick to interject before the person is even finished speaking.
“…let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger” (James 1:19).


5. Forgive. Don’t hold onto things. You only harm yourself. When your spouse does something, refer to #3 and #4. Then, let it go. Forgive them and move on.
“Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts … and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive” (Colossians 3:12-13).


6. Love. Without love, there is no marriage. And, that’s why we must keep the spark alive. This year, set aside more time to date your spouse. And, when you are out, try your best to make sure the kids or grandkids aren’t the primary topic of conversation.
“And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony” (Colossians 3:14).


7. Pray. It has been said that a successful marriage consists of three people: husband, wife and God. Involve Him more, even in the so-called “little things.”
“Seek the Lord and his strength; seek his presence continually!” (I Chronicles 16:11)
Let’s resolve together to focus on our relationships more than ourselves this year, and watch how God will bless the efforts.

Women of Courage

Posted: October 11, 2015 in Bible Truths, GOD, Jesus Christ, Love


1) A Godly Woman Always Seeks to be Modest in Her Dress. Then out came a woman to meet him, dressed like a prostitute and with crafty intent.  (Proverbs 7:10)
By contrast, the ungodly woman’s clothing points to herself and her body instead of her Father in Heaven and His holiness. Remember the words of Paul in the New Testament? God emphasizes a beauty of the unseen character. The flesh flaunts the body, God beautifies the spirit. I also want women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or expensive clothes (1 Timothy 2:9).


2) A Godly Woman Always Seeks to be Holy in Her Conduct. Come, let’s drink deep of love till morning; let’s enjoy ourselves with love! My husband is not at home; he has gone on a long journey… (Proverbs 7:18 – 29)
A godly woman fears the Lord. She seeks God’s will over the approval of anyone else on earth. Her fear of God makes her aware of the future consequence of her choices. A godly woman avoids any present situation that would be destructive for her future usefulness to God. Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body. (1 Corinthians 6:19-20)


3) A Godly Woman Always Seeks to be Truthful in Speech and Motives. With her enticing speech she caused him to yield, With her flattering lips she seduced him. Immediately he went after her, as an ox goes to the slaughter, Or as a fool to the correction of the stocks, Till an arrow struck his liver. As a bird hastens to the snare, He did not know it [would cost] his life. (Proverbs 7:21-23)
This deceitful woman is an ugly woman because she is self-driven and wants her way. Her words and actions lead the man on a path to destruction. A beautiful woman wears heavenly beauty as God’s Word describes it.


4) A Godly Woman Seeks to be Gentle and Quiet. The woman Folly is loud; she is undisciplined and without knowledge. (Proverbs 9:13) She is loud and defiant, her feet never stay at home (Proverbs 7:11)
This includes disrespect, hostility, aggressiveness and cunningness. All of these qualities are bad news.
And the Lord’s servant must not quarrel; instead, he must be kind to everyone, able to teach, not resentful. (2 Timothy 2:24)
Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight. (1 Peter 3:4)
Wives, likewise, be submissive to your own husbands, that even if some do not obey the word, they, without a word, may be won by the conduct of their wives, when they observe your chaste conduct accompanied by fear. Do not let your adornment be merely outward—arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel— rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God. For in this manner, in former times, the holy women who trusted in God also adorned themselves, being submissive to their own husbands, as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord, whose daughters you are if you do good and are not afraid with any terror. Husbands, likewise, dwell with them with understanding, giving honor to the wife, as to the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life, that your prayers may not be hindered. (1 Peter 3:1-7)
Moms and dads, what kind of woman are you raising? A wise woman or a foolish one? Does she dress in a way that draws a young man to think about her body and its enticements or her spirit and its beauty? Does she have a holy hatred of sin? Does she use her powers to get her own way? Does she manipulate by tears, looks and whatever it takes to accomplish her ends? Is she argumentative, easily quarreling and fighting with you or her brothers and sisters?
Or is she peaceable, gentle and easily entreated? If negative traits become ingrained in her character, the future could be at stake. One gifted expositor in writing about these verses said, “ …we may say with a surgeon’s frankness, her home will be like Scarlett’s — troubled, torn down, and literally Gone with the Wind.”


5) A Godly Woman Seeks to Care for the Home. She seeks wool and flax, And willingly works with her hands. (Proverbs 31:13)
She manages her home well (Titus 2:5.) She loves to tangibly serve others with food and skills. She has a home that is open and hospitable and she is given to ministry to the sick and needy and less fortunate.


6) A Godly Woman Seeks to Serve Others. She also rises while it is yet night, and provides food for her household, and a portion for her maidservants. She extends her hand to the poor, yes, she reaches out her hands to the needy. (Proverbs 31:15, 20) She has learned the love of Christ for others.


7) A Godly Woman Strives to be a Person Who Can be Trusted. The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life (Proverbs 31:11-16).


8) A Godly Woman Seeks to be Prudent in Financial Matters. She considers a field and buys it; from her profits she plants a vineyard. She makes linen garments and sells [them,] and supplies sashes for the merchants. (Proverbs 31:16, 24) She is a saver not a spender. She can see beyond today alone.


9) A Godly Woman Seeks to be a Hard Worker. She girds herself with strength, and strengthens her arms. She stretches out her hands to the distaff, and her hand holds the spindle. (Proverbs 31:17,19) God puts a premium on hard work and so she moves toward it not away. There is no slothfulness, indolence or lack of motivation.


10) A Godly Woman Seeks to Do the Right Thing and Have a Good Reputation. Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land. (Proverbs 31:23)
Moreover he must have a good testimony among those who are outside, lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil. (1 Timothy 3:7)
Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her (Proverbs 31:28).


11) A Godly Woman Seeks to Internalize Biblical Wisdom. She opens her mouth with wisdom, And on her tongue [is] the law of kindness. (Proverbs 31:26). The Word is in her heart and life and so it comes out of her mouth. And when it does it is dressed in the clothes of the Spirit, gentle and kind.


12) A Godly Woman Seeks to Live Out the Secrets of Womanhood. Strength and honor [are] her clothing; She shall rejoice in time to come (Proverbs 31:25). The future smiles at her and her children bless her.
Is there any comparison? This kind of woman and daughter is a blessing to all. A builder of the home, family and community.
