Greetings to ALL whose eyes are reading this post! I want to start off saying, this is Not a Feminist post. This is a post about women in the Word & those of you walking with & in the spirit of Yah. LOVE.
Acts 17: 23-31 puts my digging into God’s word in a nutshell along with I truly feel the heart’s desire “In Me” to seek Him with all my heart, soul, & mind & when the Holy Spirit presses me to share, I obey. Not to mention, I always have wanted to know things for myself, not just listen to what someone else says, it says. I am not saying discussions by others, are nothing. I watch videos on You Tube about God’s Word, Religion, the study of Theology, & the Culture surrounding His Word. I often take notes, then I pray asking Yah (God) to show me what’s true and what is misconstrued. Then, I set off digging into His Word for myself. It was in the listening & watching the findings & teachings of others, I realized how few discuss the women of the Bible, their accomplishments, and how God used so many for important purposes. First and foremost, Ladies you All have been given important purposes & He will show you what that is “IF” you seek Him. One purpose whether you literally have children or not is: we are the ones predominately Raising the Men & WOMEN of mankind. We are the fertilizer and cultivators of Love in the gardens of the hearts of children. You know those seeds, in His image, God planted within us.
This is one of the reasons for my post, because it has been my experience we only hear about a few of the women of the Bible: Eve, Ruth, Esther, Naomi, Mary, Sarah, & of course Mary Magdelene being the most prominent. This has me on a CSI mission about “women of the Bible”. So today, I am going to share a few of these women & for the next couple of posts I will be sharing info on women of the Bible & how some of the women of today purpose walk hand in hand with these Fabulous women.
https://religion.fandom.com/wiki/Bathsheba — Bathsheba like many of us was married twice. 1st she was the wife of Uriah, the Hittite and later King David. Depending on who you are, her story may strike home with you in your life. Check her out.
Deborah #2 – yep there are two Deborah listed – God used her in mighty ways. She sure was not a wallflower speaking only when spoken to. NO, she was a prophetess and the fourth, and the only female, Judge of pre-monarchic Israel in the Old Testament (Tanakh). Her story is told twice, in chapters 4 and 5 of Judges. Did you know this about Sandra Day O’Conner: On September 25, 1981, she became the first woman to serve as an associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. Now think about this, Deborah #2 was a woman of the Old Testament and in the article I read on O’Conner they were talking about how she finally crashed thru the final wall to serve in 1981! Yep, God had a purpose for her too, in 1981.
- Hogla – One of the 5 daughters of Zelophehad who fought and won the right to inherit their deceased father’s property. Numbers Joshu   You think that was an easy thing in the culture of these times? Don’t ya know her fight had purpose in our right to inherit our Father’s property?
https://religion.fandom.com/wiki/Rahab — I can’t leave out Rahab. She risked her life to have a Life. Did you know she is in the lineage of Jesus? She is another one that it took Great courage for her to survive & help her family in her times. I am not supporting her line of work at the time however, do we know her story and why she was living as she lived? Does anyone bring attention to the fact she repented, was grafted into the family of God, forgiven, then followed God obediently?
These are just a few I chose to mention. Please feel free to check out the site below, that list All the women of the Bible, do some deep dive digging yourself, and Comment on who you found most interesting and why did she speak to your heart?
I pray you enjoy this little series I am doing and may these women inspire you to greatness too.
