God's Most Powerful Secret Weapons, Women, The Silent Shadow Christians
This is Not the Time For Silence or to Hide in the shadows of some "great one" now is the time to be God's Battle Axes!
Welcome to our Hub Page. Do you know who God's most secret weapons are? You should because they have been in the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. They are those silent workers for God. These shadow workers who have been silent and abused in the Churches for ages, but no Church can survive without them. Christ died for them and called them to his ministry, Genesis 3:15, Matthew 28:18-20, 1 Peter 2:1-10. They are those Precious Gentle Women of God, His Battle Axes, Jeremiah 51:20 (www.godsbattleaxe.com ), called to preach, teach and prophesy for Jesus Christ as he places them in the church, home and society to make the Gospel known in these last days, Acts 2:17-20. Are you for them or against them? If you are for them Christ will bless you. But if you are against them Christ will curse you, Malachi 2:12-17. These verses in Malachi can also apply to Christian men and women who are supposed to be spiritual Jews, Romans 2:28-29.
I remember reading about Susanna Wesley, the mother of John and Charles Wesley, She is the one who taught her sons about God's Way. John Wesley was the founder of the Methodist Church, a church that allows women in their ministry. She was one very sharp female when it came to teaching God's Word. Whenever her husband was away on an evangelistic crusade, she taught a house filled with believers who came to hear her personally while her husband was away. Those that came to listen to her were more then attended her husbands regular weekly church services. She fits the discription as one of God's sharp "battle axes." See our links to her.
There were many such women like Susanna Wesley. Several other ladies should be mentioned like Margaret Fell of the Friends Church (Quakers) and Phoebe Palmer( Methodist) , Katherine Bushnell (Methodist) and many more of these cutting-edge ladies can be found in several of the books listed below like: In The Spirit We Are Equal, No Time For Silence, God's Word To Women, and many others books that are in Christians For Biblical Equality's resources library on their web page. Certainly they all can be called women of great strength led by the Holy Spirit, Ruach HaKadosh, and true Battle-Axes for Jesus Christ. There is plenty of room for many more of you ladies to come and join in God's great harvest of souls for redemption through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Another important person to remember was the Moravian minister Count Ludwig Nicolas Von Zinzendorf, who inspired John Wesley the founder of the Methodist, and also many Quakers (The Friends Church) to have many women preachers and teachers. Zinzendorf's teachings about our Holy Spirit Mother, was such that women can identify themselves with the female member of the Elohim Godhead( The Holy Spirit, Ruah) and are qualified to be part of Jesus Christ's priesthood of all believers, 1 Peter 2:1-11.
You do know that Six of God's 10 Commandments tell us how to behave towards women? The apostle Paul's admonition to us men is Love our wives as we love ourselves. God's golden rule is to do to others as we would want them to do to us, but if you abuse your wives and daughters. Christ will have nothing to do with you, Ephesians 5:25-32, Matthew 22:37-40. He will pour out His wrath on you if you do not repent, Revelation 22:11-12.
Male misogyny will bring a curse on men and their Churches if they continue to reject women and hate women that preach and teach as ministers in God's Churches. Christ will punish very severly those that use it in the Church to hinder his work. It is best to repent of it now before He returns, Revelation 22:11-15, Matthew 7:21--24.
Now is that time for the women of God to publish and to lift up their voices with strength; lift up your voices and do not be afraid: say unto the cities of just not Judah, but all the cities of the world, Behold your God, Isaiah 40:9, Acts 1:6-8! Are you a woman of strength? You can be if you will let Ruach HaKadosh the Holy Spirit live in you and teach you to bare fruit for God. The good fruits of the Spirit are the feminine fruits of the Holy Spirit and are what both women and men need to produce to have an active life in the Spirit. They are: Love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law because they fulfill the law of love, Galatians 5:22-23, 1 Corinthians 13:13, 1 John 4:7-21. After all both women and men make up a very beautiful Woman or Bride that will marry Christ when he returns, Revelation 21:2; 22:17.
Now is that time to dress up in the armour of God and boldly face the enemies of God, namely Satan and his evil followers of darkness, Ephesians 6:10-13. You need to be ready for the greatest witness ever so be prepared and have your legs girted with truth and have on the breastplate of righteousness and your feet ready to move and spread the gospel of peace. Take the shield of faith with you, so you can quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And put on your head as a covering the helmet of salvation and carry the sword of the Spirit, the Word of God. Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, watching with all perseverance and supplication for the new saints and to boldly open your mouths to make known the mystery of the gospel as ambassadors for Christ, Ephesians 6:14-20.

Become a Philadelphian Christian, Revelation 3:7-13, 12:14-16.
Women need to no longer remain silent. You need no longer live in the shadow of your husband or some other designated man. Christ has set you free no matter what some male ministers will tell you. After all there are some "Christian" men who hate women, and who have gone out of the way to destroy female and male relationships in the Church by insisting on a male hierarchical order of domination. The Big problem with these men is that they ignore the powerful teachings of Jesus Christ through grace. Jesus taught that we are not to rule over one another, whether males over males or males over females. Christ leadership is servant leadership, Matthew 20:25-28. Do you want to rule? Than you better serve like Jesus Chrst said to do or you will be very unhappy with the results. This is a challenge to us all and we need to get it right.
Women live according to their belief system but if their belief system does not line up with God's truth many problems arise. It is too bad that the belief system for Christian women has been shaped by the traditional institutional Church. Most of these traditions are not from God and have heaped untold abuse on our ladies of faith. So much so that many women leave for some New Age churches with goddess worship and witchcraft. These teachings that undermind the church are strongly patriarchal and men will try to tell you that under men's headship or control, women have at best, been "honored" as second class citizens in the church, home and society.
What men do is elevate themselves and marginalize or patronize women. Ghastly, what twisted reasoning just like Adam's undermining of Eve for control of everything, Genesis 3:12-13,15-16. In God's eyes and my eyes, women are First rate Christians. I know because I had a first rate woman born me, plus I married one. We need to count our blessings daily and rejoice in the fact we can be born of the Holy Spirit into our new life, John 3:3-8, 1 Corinthians 3:16, Romans 8:9-17. Are you willing to let our Holy Spirit Mother, wean and nurture you and give you gifts to use in Christ's ministry, Psalm 131:1-3, John 16:7-13, 1 Corinthians 12:1-13.
As the apostle Paul said about his own human nature it was not good but thanks to Jesus Christ we can change, Romans 7:24-25 > "O wretched man that I am! Who shall deliver me from this body of death? I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the Law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin." So many men seem to have a problem with some of Paul's teachings especially 1 Timothy 2:11-15 and 1 Corinthians 14:34-35 but if you are careful to faithfully discern these scriptures like Christians For Biblical Equality and the Bereans in Acts 17:11-12, we can see that Paul supported women in God's ministry and had many women working with him, even a women apostle named Junia, 2 Peter 3:15-18, Romans 16:5-7-15. Neither, Jesus Christ nor the apostle Paul, said for faith filled women to keep silent. It's time to step out in Christ's faith in usand go into all the world and preach the gospel everywhere, Matthew 28:18-20.
Woman do not have to accept marginalization by any Church or man as their fate for being women. They do not have to live in the shadow of their husbands or some other males who think they are their leaders(ministers or is it masters). Christ is your teacher along with the Holy Spirit, who will teach you the good things of God, so follow them, Romans 8:24-28, Matthew 23:8-11, John 16:13. Women are to derive their purpose in life from Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit and the Father, Romans 8:16, John 3:3-8,16-17, 1 Corinthians 6:19-20, 2 Corinthians 6:16-18. Ladies it is now time to come out of the shadows. Jesus Christ wants you!
No longer are you to be called God's "Secret Weapons" in the shadows of men but the true Battle-Axes of God, the womenly portions of God, Jeremiah 51:17-20. It is now time for the women of God as Their Battle Axes (Church), with their men, to take on this worlds spiritual Babylonic system of this world. A system perpetuated from Nimrod and Semiramis and Tammuz by Satan the devil right up into our Day through the devil's paganized "christian churches", that tries to use Christ's name contemporaneously, with her harlot daughters in a false trinity, Genesis 10:8-10; Revelation 17:4-6.
So, I ask the question again, do you know any of these Secret Weapons of God? You should, they have been with us since the beginning of our human creation as very special helpers, Genesis 1:26-27,2:18-25. You too can be one of these secret weapons in these last days just before Christ returns. Only now they will not be secret anymore. So, Cry allowed and lift up your voice like a trumpet, declare to the world this special event. Jesus time is near to come, so repent and believe the Gospel and profess Jesus Christ, and you too can be saved, Isaiah 58:1. Pray for more laborers for the harvest, Matthew 9:37-38. Preach the Word from the house tops if needed, Luke 12:2-5, Matthew 10:26-28. be Battle-Axes for God in a deceived Babylonian world, Jeremiah 51:11-20.
The phrase, "God's Secret Weapons," was first mentioned by Argentinian Evangelist, Ed Silvoso. ( See the book by J Lee Grady, 25 Tough Questions About Women and The Church, chapter 25, pages 19-20). He says of them: "That Satan fears what women will one day do to him. The devil knows that God does not lie - what God promises always comes to pass. This is why Satan has spent centuries belittling women and weaving a web of lies into a formidable worldwide network of oppression to hold them down. He knows that when women find out who they really are, his evil kingdom, will come to an abrupt end. He cannot afford to have women walking upright. He desperately needs to keep them down."
Now is God's time for perfect vengeance! The woman and women, who have been deceived and abused by the devil, all these centuries, would one day be God's instruments of his total defeat. God has reserved women for this last grand battle with the Dragon. Scripture is clear that Jesus crushed the Serpent's head, Genesis 3:15. In the same way, the ministries that come from women in the End-Times church will drive the final spike through Satan's skull- just as the maiden Jael did, when she drove a tent peg through the temple of the enemy commander Sisera (Judges 4:28-29, Jeremiah 51:17-20).
