For you, from your Creator.
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.
The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.”
The man said, “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called ‘woman’ for she was taken out of man.”
The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden,
but God did say,
‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden,
and you must not touch it, or you will die.'”
Note: She lied; God never said they could not touch it. -K
The man said, “The woman you put here with me — she gave me some fruit from the tree, and I ate it.” [. . .]
The woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.”
To the woman, he [God] said, “I will greatly increase your pains in childbearing;
with pain you will give birth to children.”
Your desire will be for your husband, and he will rule over you.
2 thoughts on “God Speaks to Women”
No one knows women like God. I’ve read atheists who say they can’t believe in God because of the negative language about women in the Bible. I think they read about Eve’s punishment and forget to read about her sin. Or they read about laws regarding wives in the Old Testament without realizing that those laws were for woman’s protection. Jesus honored women. He appeared to a woman first after His resurrection!
Reading the Bible makes me happy to be a woman!
Thanks, Victoria! God certainly shoud know us better than we know ourselves! 🙂
And He definitely had our protection in mind, it is so easy to see if we only have our eyes open!
I’m happy, too.
