The Devil Hates Women!


Did you know just how much the enemy hates women? Did you ever think to wonder just exactly why that is?

Have you ever thought about how much persecution women have to endure in some countries?

But have you really thought about the reasons why?

Let's go back in History to the beginning, back in the cool, refreshing garden of Eden. The time when things were perfect, back to before the snake in the garden was going to tempt Eve. Actually if we really want to, we need to go back even further than that. Back to the time of the creations of angels.

There really isn't much in the Bible about when they were created but we know, that they must have been before the creation of the earth and man, because it is Satan that tempts Eve in the garden.

So we need to look at Satan's former self, Lucifer or in the passage of Isaiah 14:12-15, he is referred to as the morning star.

12How have you fallen from heaven, O a]">[a]light-bringer and daystar, son of the morning! How you have been cut down to the ground, you who weakened and laid low the nations [O blasphemous, satanic king of Babylon!]

13And you said in your heart, I will ascend to heaven; I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will sit upon the mount of assembly in the uttermost north.

14I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.

15Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol (Hades), to the innermost recesses of the pit (the region of the dead).

The Hebrew for this expression--"light-bringer" or "shining one"--is translated "Lucifer" in The Latin Vulgate, and is thus translated in the King James Version. But because of the association of that name with Satan, it is not now used in this and other translations.

From what I've read and learned is that Lucifer was one of the most high angels in all of heaven before his pride got in the way. However, like all of God's creatures he was given a choice whom to serve, and subsequently thought he could do a better job on earth than in heaven and thus was removed from heaven by God and 1/3 of all the angels went with him. Revelation 12:4 ~ "His tail swept [across the sky] and dragged down a third of the stars and flung them to the earth."

So from the very beginning of creation, Lucifer has always been in competition with God and the things He has created.

So when God began with the creation of the world, you notice that each day adds something better than what was there before. On the 6th day, God created man and once he was finished He stated, "It's not good for man to be alone, so I will make a helper suitable for him."

So God created woman and said, "It's is good!" With woman being the final product of beauty and creation of God. Now here is where it gets interesting.

Lucifer now sees something that is more beautiful than him and sets out to destroy it. This is why the serpent set its heart on trapping Eve and not Adam. He only speaks to the Eve even though Adam is clearly with her in the garden. " She also gave some of it to her husband, who was with her and he ate it." ~ Genesis 3:6

Lucifer has always been jealous of God and His creations so now he will begin his steal, kill and destroy mission with woman first.

It is also interesting that even though the fall of man into sin became with a mistake made by a woman, God also uses a woman, named Mary to bring about the restoration of man once more in bearing a son that will be the new Adam and thus the Savior of the world.

So the next time you wonder why you, as a woman, are under such spiritual attack, remember these very reasons why, and stand firm. God has given us the gift of intuition to know when something isn't right in our homes. It's that God-given gift we must all use more and continue to watch out and pray for our homes, marriages and families.

I guess I never thought of it like this. Eve=sin into the world, Mary=saviour into the world.

Here I am planning to find Eve and ask her why she took that awful bite...when I should be looking for Mary to thank her for her obedience to God's master plan of sending His Son to save me [us] from what that bite did. Awesome sister Kat! Continuing to pray for bro. Steve, you and your family. God bless you and protect you all.

And God used a woman, Mary of Magadala, in John 20, to convey the greatest message.

How the Lord loves women!
