Man With A Womb (Wom(b)an)
We hear or read in the news that there is a question of what the gender is of an individual at birth. Some people say that the preference should be made by the parents of the child or by the child himself or herself, disregarding the physical characteristics of the child. This gender question is very real to many people. Someone, who as a male human, thinks that he needs to change his sex to that of a woman. It is the same thing with someone who is born as a female has the idea that her gender is a male, as if she were deserving of a choice. This confusion between the sexes, concerning gender, is very real to them. Why is this so?
Although the physical world is very real to us, the spirit world is more real. The Spirit world is where there is a controversy between God and His adversary, Satan, and who’s children will participate in who’s kingdom, God’s Kingdom or those who willingly want to stay in Satan’s Kingdom, and which children will choose to align themselves to the correct father. See Malachi 4:6. The outcome at the end of the Book of Revelation shows us a new earth age, and a new heaven age with God and His people dwelling in peace in the new Jerusalem, and the gender question solved.
Why is There a Gender Question?
What is revealed in Genesis 1:26 is that God created man male and female.
Genesis 1:26, And God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.” 27, So God created man in His own image, the image of God He created him; male and female created He them. 28, and God blessed them and God said unto them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.”
To be fruitful and multiply can mean only one thing, to increase with children. They were to populate the earth with children. To replenish means to fill up again with that which was here before. God’s children inhabited the earth in the age that was as described by the Apostle Peter in 2nd Peter 3:5-6. These are the created souls we read about in Ezekiel 18:4. The word soul refers to the sons of God in a spiritual body as we find in Job, 38:7. The word soul can also refer to the eight souls saved by water during Noah’s day as Peter says in 1st Peter 3:20. We are able to trace Noah’s progeny back to the Adam of chapter five, Genesis 5:29, so these souls referred to by the Apostle Peter are Adamic souls and are not in any way linked to the male and female in Genesis chapter one. Each soul, whether in a spiritual body or flesh body belongs to God by right of creation, Ezekiel 18:4. It would be helpful to read our article “Sixth Day or Eight Day Creation,”
Job Description of the Male and Female of Genesis chapter 1
The female of chapter 1: 27-28 had a womb in which to bring forth children. They were told to be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth. They were told to have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the fowl of the air and every living thing of the earth, verse 28. We don’t read where these of chapter one, who were created on the sixth day, became a living soul as the Adam of chapter 2:7 states. They certainly had souls but their souls were not breathed upon to become a living soul. This group of people, who were created on the sixth day, were brought in to rest with God on the seventh day, His created sabbath. This was male’s and female’s 1st day in existence and it was God’s seventh day. There can be no rest for man without God’s presence within that day.
The Job Description of Adam in Chapter 2
God took note of everything that He had created and said that it was good, however we read:
Genesis 2:5, And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the Lord God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.
This was Adam’s job description, to till the ground. This is the same function as a farmer, to remove the weeds, stone, and loosen the hard ground by tilling it for the purpose of planting seed.
Genesis 2:18, And the Lord God said, ” It is not good that the man should be alone;I will make him a help meet for him.”
Verse 19 says that the Lord God has now created a second group of animals, not of the earth as we read in Genesis 1:24, but of the field. This group of animals were formed just as Adam was formed, meaning that they were not only created but were of a domesticated nature. God would not put a burden of tilling the ground upon Adam without the help of farm animals to help him till the ground.
We need to keep in mind at this point that man is made from the ground. We are like the soil. Our nature can be full with weeds, rocky, or soil as hard as cement . See Matthew chapter 13, the parable of the sower. These animals were a real help for Adam to till the ground but he still needed a suitable companion as his helpmate. Before Adam would get his suitable companion, God had to cause Adam to go into a deep sleep.
Genesis 2:21, And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and He took one of his ribs and closed up the flesh thereof. 22, And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from the man, made He a woman, and brought her unto the man. 23, And Adam said, “this is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman because she was taken out of Man.”
The female in Genesis 1:27-28 was to be fruitful and multiply. This woman was created in a different way than the females of chapter 1. She was created while Adam slept.
Romans 11:8:, ( according as it is written, “God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear”;) unto this day.
God does not change, He is working the same way now as He did in Genesis 2. He has caused a deep sleep to fall upon all humanity, until the Father draws him, John 6:44. Who is this woman that was taken out of the man?
John 2:4, Jesus said unto her, ” woman, what have I to do with thee? My hour has not yet come.”
Jesus calls His mother “woman”. She is the one who had given birth to Him. And what does the scriptures say of the one who would fulfill the promised seed of Genesis 3:15?
Isaiah 7:14, Therefore the Lord Himself shall give you a sign; Behold a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call His name Immanuel.
The name Immanuel means, God with us. The word virgin mentioned above could be referring to a male as well as to a female.
Matthew 16:18, And I say also unto thee, “That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build My church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.”
This church that Jesus Christ is building is made up of men as well as women. It is made up of males as well as females. His church is called the body of Christ, Romans 12:5.
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.”
The Apostle Paul, speaking to the woman who was taken out of the man, males as well as females:
2nd Corinthians 11:2, “For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.
Today, males as well as females can be impregnated with the seed of promise of Genesis 3:15. This is the nature and mystery of the church, composed of males as well as females, who are to become the bride of the bridegroom, Christ.
Ephesians 5:30, “For we are members of His body, of His flesh and of His bones.
The flesh and bone statement is what Adam said concerning the woman, who was taken out of the man, Genesis 2:23. To continue in the Book of Ephesians:
Ephesians 5:31, “For this cause shall a man leave His father and his mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. 32, This is a great mystery: but I speak of Christ and the church.”
As was stated before, the spirit world is more real than the physical world. We see the logo of an Apple computer with its image of an apple with a bite out of it, which is a distortion of what had happened in the Garden. Those who have understood that Adam and Eve had to be in a fig orchard in order to cover their loins with fig leaves, Genesis 3:7. Eve eating an apple is a deception of the truth. The gender question is of a spiritual nature, although, like the Apple logo, a distortion of what is true. The flesh always determines the gender question, and a corrupt thought and mind can disrupt the peace within an individual. Peace is easily taken away with the gender question of a child. These two examples are the subtitles in which Satan, the god of this world, operates. Don’t allow Satan to take away the peace for you and your family.
