Traditions and Religious

Tradition is the transmission of customs or beliefs from generation to generation, or the fact of being passed on in this way. The passing down of elements of a culture from generation to generation, especially by oral communication.

Religious the belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, esp. a personal God or gods. A set of beliefs concerning the cause, nature, and purpose of the universe, especially when considered as the creation of a superhuman agency or agencies, usually involving devotional and ritual observances, and often containing a moral code governing the conduct of human affairs.

People are so stuck in traditions and religious that they can’t prosper into what God called them to do. They are so afraid to step outside the norm and so worried about what people think about them. People will stay at their same dead church just because their family grew up in that church from generation to generation. (In fact, people are more focus on the church than God. It’s not even in the bible that tells you how a church supposed to look.) They are afraid to try different churches that are led by the Holy Spirit because it’s new to them and they never experienced anything like that before.

Therefore, people are so stuck in traditions and religious that they don’t believe in women pastors, apostles and prophets but majority of them do not even go to church. What kind of God are you serving? It can’t be the God that created us in his very own image or whose son Jesus Christ died for our sins. In Galatians 3:28 “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.” God can use anyone to spread his word to all nations because He does not see gender and we all are one in Jesus Christ.

However, people love to bring up these two bible scriptures 1 Corinthians 14:34-35:34 “Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law.

35 And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.” 11 Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. 1 Timothy 11:12: 11 Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. 12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.

Before I speak about this subject, let me say this people when you read your bibles you have to be led by the Holy Spirit instead of reading it like a book. Ask God to give you the Holy Spirit so you can understand what you are reading.

When Paul wrote that he did not say women cannot be pastors. For one reason Paul is not God and God said before you believe anything you should always ask him first. Paul wrote that because the church needed order because they were out of order. The church was in destruction after Paul left and they were sinning and doing things the wrong way. In 1 Corinthians 14:40 “Let all things be done decently and in order.”

Now Timothy wrote that for the married couples, he did not want the husband’s wives to over speak them and make an embarrassment of them. It was a lot of issues with women in the churches because they did not know how to act property and act like First Ladies in the churches! He did not say women could not be pastors, he was talking about the men wives who was not a part of the ministry. He wanted the women to have order in the church!
Now another reason people don’t believe in women pastors, apostles, and prophets is because they are ignorant. The devil will have people so ignorant and they don’t even realize they are ignorant. In fact, that’s why many people are so stuck in traditions and religious. In 1 Corinthians 14:38 “But if any man be ignorant, let him be ignorant.” In fact, ignorance is one of the main attacks that the enemy will use against people to keep them from doing what God called them to do! If the enemy will use you with ignorance he will because he already knows what God called you to do so he stops it with ignorance before it happens and people fail to realize it all the time.

People I plead the blood of Jesus over you, open up your eyes and walk into God promise land. God may move you away from your family, to a new church, city, and state or move you away from your so called friends, but just trust God because He knows what’s best for you. It may be to strange to others but who cares what people think! If you follow others you will be stuck in traditions and religious like they are. I decree and declare that you will walk out on faith and follow Jesus. It doesn’t matter who gets left behind as long as it is not you.

Do not worry about anything because God will supply your every need. He might put you in unfamiliar places or unfamiliar situations but just trust God through it all because He has an uncommon purpose on your life!!!
