Any Hug For A Stranger
Honour of kings
I love to do researches; I am what I called an investigative journalist and my main source is the bible. I read other materials related to the issue that I am resourcing. Some of us think that the bible is prejudice against women but I see something else through the pages of the bible.
The book of proverbs teaches: 25:2 It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter.
2Ti 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
I want to share my discoveries with you and I am open for any discussion and feel free to criticize this hub in anyway necessary to you.
The arms of a mother is like the arms of the church
Stranger at the door
A Doctor living in the city of ______________ Travelled over 50 miles one night across the state to the country just to see her mother after having a verbal fight with her husband. It was about 2 a.m. in the wee hours of the night Mrs.___________heard knocking on her front door, woken from her sleep she hesitate to answer to the knocks on her door and wondered if she should pick up the phone and call the police. She called her husband, “Larry I think there is a stranger at the front door. A couple of minutes went by before the elderly couple made it to the door, only to discover that the stranger in the night was her only daughter Jackie(not her real name). “What’s wrong honey why didn’t you called?” Where is Owen, what is wrong? A barrage of questions kept coming at her “Mom, just give a hug please,” the middle age woman, a well know Doctor working in Texas, said to her Mom. Larry, her step father and her have a fairly good relationship, took a deep breath, and said, “you did not drive all the way here in the middle of the night for a hug girl tell your mom what’s the problem, is it that husband of yours, is he OK.?” Doc. Replied, “Just let me get a hug first, it is not that bad but we had a fight”
An elderly man lying on His dying bed struggled to say, I feel like I want my mother. His mother, I was told past off well over 50 years ago. A young man in his late 20s in jail got arrested for gun related charges cries for His mother in his jail cell. Time and Time again I hear adults remark that they wish their Mom was still around. Song writers wrote “I remember mama…” “Oh Mom I wish you were around, to see….’ Each year we see so many poems and songs giving tribute to mothers. Merchants making big profits from mother’s day gifts. Don’t get me wrong, nothing is wrong with the above just want to show the consideration the world place on mothers. We know how important mothers are to the entire human race and even some of us wonder if God is a woman.
Think about the different functions of the church; now compare it with a mother.
Do we truly give our mothers what they deserve, do we tell them what they ought to know. How important is the face of a mother to a dying man? How so important is a mother’s hug, not to mention a mother’s love.
Some of us think that the bible is prejudice against women but I see something else through the pages of the bible. John 4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. The bible is a spiritual book and must view from that aspect. The bible has codes and principles that if we follow correctly allow us to understand in dept the teachings of God.
The Creation of a Woman
It is unique how God put women on this high pedestal and native mankind thinks the opposite.
Woman was the only being in Genesis that was not created directly from of the earth.
Woman came from a living being called man.
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 instead thereof;
:22 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
The Church later came forth from Jesus Christ the second Adam so maybe Eve was the first church from the first Adam. So, right from the beginning we are seeing how important a woman is, and it is a blessing for her to be a mother. In scriptures the church is describe as a woman.
Rev 17:5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
Rev 17:6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration. Yes as shocking as it sounds this it referring to a church.
Gal 4:26 But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all. The ASV renders this text this way Gal 4:26 But the Jerusalem that is above is free, which is our mother.
This is implying that we are the children of the new world.
The church responsibility is to take care of the believers just as how mothers should nurse and cherish their children. Motherhood extents beyond the imagination of some believers and religious sect. The true church is training believers in becoming co-workers with Christ when He returns as King of kings. The church duties include preparing its members for the kingdom of God and teaching them how to cope and overcome the world’s sinful ways.
What do parents teach their children? Or should I asked, what should a mother teach her children?
Across the entire globe where ever there is a church people go there for various reasons. Think about the different functions of the church; now compare it with a mother.
I must in all interest of my readers pause to introduce to you a very important book which reveals the true purposes of the church. The Mystery of The Church, Chapter six, page 154. Of The Mystery Of The Ages,
Mothers are there to help in the running of the home not to run the home
Our mothers should also know that they were created to be a part of God’s master plan to finish the preparation of mankind.
Our mother’s have the right to demand from the world materials they need to enhance their overall development. Our mothers have the right to demand spiritual and physical knowledge in order to pass on the best training to their children. Mothers you have the right to the best of everything this world can ever offer.
Look at these biblical teachings:
Gal 4:4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,
1Ti 5:14 I will therefore that the younger women marry, bear children, guide the house, give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully.
Tit 2:3 The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things;
Tit 2:4 That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,
1Pe 3:5 For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands:
- A Better Way of Life
A better way of life is what I believe every one desires. We want to be among the rich and famous. We go to school to achieve our degrees so that we can find the most paying job to live a comfortable life....
