THE INCREDIBLE ROLE OF A MOTHER

How could we ever begin to understand the enormous value of a woman’s contribution in rearing the children of Yahweh?
The bond that was designed to exist between mother and child cannot be substituted. From the time a child is conceived, to the time they draw their last breath, it carries within itself the imprints of her emotions, her words, her actions and reactions.
From the very moment of conception they become inseparable: what you experience, your child experiences. The things that exist in your environment and the way you deal with them, leaves its imprint on your child.
Ladies, it is my opinion, that you were designed to have the most impact on your children. You above all are their primary teacher.
Think about it; they are formed in and spend their first nine months within you: Attached to you, drawing their life from you. Their born, then their placed at your breast: There they’re nursed, protected, nurtured and loved.
For the first few months, except for briefs moments when the father takes them, they are one with you: Again drawing their life from you.
The bond that is designed to be between mother and child is irreplaceable.
The role that Yahweh has designed for women, as wife and mother, could never be replaced or devalued.
If a mother’s role and its importance can be distorted, then Yahweh’s plan for bringing forth children can be thwarted, this must have been the reasoning of Satan.
He must have reasoned, if he could instill within the woman, the helpmate of man, the idea that she has a mind of her own: A mind that can choose its own path’s, set its own goals to achieve it’s own purposes apart from her husband, then he would succeed in his plan to destroy the potential children of Yahweh.
Think about this; Yahweh in His wisdom designed the method by which He would communicate with man in order to achieve the purpose of bringing forth children: This was His aim. In the process of accomplishing His goal He designed the role of each participant; which is father, mother and child. In each of the different roles He designed a mode of conduct that would be required in order for His purpose to be achieved.
In creating the different modes of conduct it was not His aim to create an environment of competition: An environment where each would be competing for position; where each would be seeking their own. No He designed the different roles to function together, to compliment one another.
His desire was for us to lovingly work together, each seeing the value of the other and each giving ourselves to the accomplishment of the purpose that laid ahead us.
When this kind of understanding is adhered to, then there is no competition, instead there is harmony and each sees the value of the other and contributes to the building up of one another, by supplying their own particular gifts and abilities for the accomplishment of the desired end.
Listen to the Apostle Paul point out the different roles and also instruct us in the appropriate behavior with one another.
Look at 1 Cor 11:1-3 imitate me, just as I also imitate Messiah.
Now I praise you, brethren that you remember me in all things and keep the traditions just as I delivered them to you. 3 And I wish you to know that the head of every man is Messiah, the head of woman is man, and the head of Messiah is Yahweh.
Paul is pointing out here the order of the different roles, showing the proper line of communication.
Now notice the attitude that is to exist in that relationship. Eph 5:22-33 Wives,
Listen to the definition of a wife; its Strong’s NT:1096 ginomai (ghin’-om-ahee); a prolongation,” (continuation, persistence, maintenance,) and middle voice form of a primary verb; to cause to be
(“gen”- erate), i.e. (reflexively) to become (come into being), used with great latitude (literal, figurative, intensive, etc.):
– arise, be assembled, be (-come, -fall, -haveself), be brought (to pass), (be) come (to pass), continue
“Submit” (or give yourself to” arrange yourself under: Assign yourself 🙂 to your own husbands, as to the Master.” The one in control! “Because the husband is head of the wife, as also Messiah is head of the Assembly; and He is the Savior of the body.
24 Therefore, just as the Assembly is subject to Messiah, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every respect.
This is a woman’s role in the family. A woman was designed to be a helpmate; she was design to assist her husband.
If this is the case and it is, then it is crucial that young ladies, future wives and mothers, be taught what their potential is, and that is, that they are those who are the primary teachers in brining forth children for the Family of Yahweh and that they should choose their mate with this main purpose in mind.
The fact that they have been chosen to rear children for the family of Elohim should be the focal point of their lives and every decision they make should revolve around this fact.
In choosing their mate, they should look for someone who loves Yahweh with all their heart soul and mind; someone who they are assured will bring up the children from their union in the love and nurture Of Yahweh: someone whose whole purpose is to provide Yahweh with first fruits.
Paul in verse 25 gives young woman an example of a true husband.25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Messiah also loved the Assembly and gave Himself for her, 26 that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, 27 that He might present her to Himself a glorious bride, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be set apart and blameless.
A young lady should be taught to seek out a young man who has been taught that their role as a husband is represented by the love and care that Yahshua has for his wife the Assembly.
Contained in verse 25 we see the spiritual, mental and emotional welfare of his wife at the forefront of his mind. We see in this a man that is sincerely devoted to Yahweh and for the purpose for his calling as a husband and father for potential children of Yahweh: A man that truly understands the role of a wife and mother and is focused on providing the very best for her.
A young man that can look beyond the desires of his on nature and see the true value in a wife and mother and with all his being dedicated to her full potential as a woman.
Verse 28 continues to give us a description of the man they should be taught to look for.
So husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies; he who loves his wife loves himself. 29 For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as the Messiah does the Assembly. 30 For we are members of His body, of His flesh and of His bones. 31 “For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” A young lady should be taught to look for a man who has accumulated the means to provide for her physical needs independently of his father and mother.
A young man in expectation of his future wife has attained the necessary means to provide for her physical needs. One that has looked into the future and with love worked to supply his future bride with the best he could provide.
This is what a young lady should be taught to look for.
Mothers this responsibility is primarily yours.
Let’s summarize what we have learned.
Is His wisdom, Yahweh designed the perfect environment to produce children, Yet Satan in his subtlety, introduced competition into their environment by suggesting to eve that she was as capable of making decisions as Yahweh or her husband was, therefore setting the course for the world that you and I exist in today.
Ladies where do you look for the perfect example of a wife and mother? The Assembly; the bride of Messiah!
The bride of Messiah will totally submit herself to the fulfillment of the goals and purposes he has set forth.
Messiah’s bride will never show any disrespect, haughtiness, rebellion or unfaithfulness to His loving rule.
Fathers our role is depicted by Yahshua, Ladies your role is depicted by the Assembly.
The way the Assembly is to be subject to and lovingly assist Yahshua in his goals and purposes of bringing forth children for Yahweh so are you in your role as wife and mother of your own particular family.
Think about it, you have the awesome privilege of supplying the bond; that’s what the word mother means, which holds the family together.
If you respect, admire and support your husband, then you become the glue that connects the family together: But, if you show disrespect for him, you become the destroyer of the family.
Ladies, your role is too important to rearing the children of Yahweh to let a society devised by Satan rob you of this awesome privilege.
To be a wife and mother is the highest calling, theirs nothing that could be more honorable.
This evil retched society has portrayed a false image of a wife and mother and they have taken the mothers from the homes and have all but destroyed society.
Mothers you are the one designed to be at home to love and nurture your children.
You’re the one that guides and protects their hearts and minds from wrong influences and attitudes.
If we, those who claim to be Yahweh’s children are going to stand up and make a difference we must return to true values, we must forsake the values of this world and provide an environment for our children that speaks of the greatness of becoming his children: for this to come about, the mother must be in the home: This is her place, no matter what this evil perverted society teaches.
You take the mother out of the home and you destroy the environment for the proper nurture for Yahweh’s children.
If the children’s hearts are going to be turned to the Fathers we must have the mothers in the home.
If the Father’s hearts are truly turned to the children, this will come about.
We must heed the call to come out of her: Babylon, and be separate, if we are going to continue to claim to be children of Yahweh.
Mothers what an incredible role you have in rearing children for Yahweh.
