Help Meet

One Who Helps

"And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone;
I will make a HELP MEET for him." -Genesis 2:18

The Bible teaches that it is the wife's duty to HELP her husband. You may not agree with that, but it is God's plan. Many women have simply sold-out to the ungodly influences of the feminist movement and refuse to accept any such teaching. There is no greater role for a woman in this world than being at her husband's side.

Many foolish women have DESTROYED their husbands!

"A wise woman builds her home, but a foolish woman tears it down with her own hands." -Proverbs 14:1

A wise wife builds her family. She can be the most influential power in her husband's life. With her tongue, a wise women can encourage and build her husband up. She can pray over his mind, body, and soul. The same as a foolish woman with a sharp tongue can shred a man to nothing.

Submission

"In the same way, you wives must accept the authority of your husbands. Then, even if some refuse to obey the Good News, your godly lives will speak to them without words. They will be won over by observing your pure and reverent lives."
-1 Peter 3:1-6

Let us remember, that Sarah obeyed Abraham, even called him lord.This is greatly admirable for any woman. Sarah's use of the word "lord" was simply her way of saying, "Hey, your the boss Abraham!" Sarah was loyal.

Submission is a biblical principle spoken of throughout God's Word.

"For wives, this means submit to your husbands as to the Lord. For a husband is the head of his wife as Christ is head of the church." -Ephesians 5:22

"Wives, submit to your husbands, as is filling for those who belong to the Lord."
-Colossians 3:18

To offer balance both scriptures go on to include instruction for the husband to love his wife, as Christ loves the church (the "Bride").

A home will never be a home if a man and woman refuse to accept their proper roles in the marriage. A husband must be understanding, not a tyrant, committed to God, and an honest man, fair to his wife and kids. A woman must be submissive to her husband and obedient, but the husband must allow her to express her opinions and be fair about the decisions he makes.

Ladies, when you refuse to be a HELP MEET to your husband and submit to his authority, you are allowing the devil to gain entrance into your marriage.

"She is more precious than rubies. Her husband can trust her, and she will greatly enrich his life. She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life...Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her."
-Proverbs 31:10-12, 28


~"You can name anything you want to name, but I am opposed to anything in the world that de-emphasizes the line of difference between the sexes. I believe that ladies ought to be feminine and sweet and lovely and charming. I believe men ought to be strong and masculine and decisive. I'm opposed to anything that makes a man and a woman act alike, look alike, dress alike, or talk alike." -Pastor Jack Hyles
