Daily Devotional, Year 3 – October 21

.

.

Who Are The Daughters of Sara?

.

.

.

.

.

.

“…Even as Sara obeyed Abraham,

calling him lord:

whose daughters ye are,

as long as ye do well….”

1st Peter 3:6

.

.

.

.

.

.

Wives, have you ever gone into marriage counselling in hopes of resolving differences between you and your husband?

.

Well, you’re not alone!

.

The divorce rate here in this society is still at about 50%.

And that statistic doesn’t even include all those who are living together out-of-wedlock!

RECIPE FOR SUCCESS!

.

Well, what if someone told you that most marital problems could be solved in 18 words?

.

That’s right, most difficulties in today’s marriages might be forever solved in just 18 little words!

.

And here are those 18 words… “…Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well….” 1st Peter 3:6

.

Yes, this above advice, if obeyed, could solve so many marital problems!

.

And God has made humble and obedient Sara the matriarch for Christian wives everywhere throughout time.

.

She actually called her husband, “Lord”, and submitted to him.

A PROUD AND STUBBORN WORLD!

.

The problem is, this very proud and stubborn society has waged a very successful campaign to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:We_Can_Do_It!.jpgmarshal the female gender into becoming proud and stubborn, insisting on becoming leaders in the home, all under the banner of “Women’s Lib”.

.

From grade-school up, girls are conditioned to, “fight for your rights!”

.

Yes, this Bible-hating society has wholly rejected the Gospel of Salvation, and instead, has established their own set of rules!

.

But as we look and observe how all this is working out, we see a world literally crumbling into pieces, and a marriage institution which is greatly in shambles!

SATAN: CREATOR OF, “WOMEN’S LIB”

.

But when you think about it, Women’s Lib is nothing new!

.

After all, Women’s Lib began way back in the Garden, when the serpent (Satan) whispered into the ear of the woman, promising that she could be like God!

.

And Satan convinced her that she could rise above her current station, to an exalted position!

.

.

.

.

.

LISTEN TO 1ST PETER 3:1-6

.

Listen to this entire passage from 1st Peter…“Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Braet_von_%C3%9Cberfeldt_woman_with_bible_1866.jpgyour own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives; While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear…Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement.” (to read entire passage, click here… 1st Peter 3:1-6)

.

OK, so here is an expanded explanation of those, “18 little words from 1st Peter.”

.

And if you will notice, the over-arching principle of this above passage is, submission: submission to Christ and submission to the husband!

MY HUSBAND’S SALVATION!

.

Listen again to the promise found in 1st Peter 3:1-6…“Likewise, ye wives, be in http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:A_Prayer_for_those_at_Sea_by_Frederick_Daniel_Hardy.jpgsubjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the Word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation (behavior) of the wives…” 1st Peter 3:1

.

Now, most women reading this would say, “This sounds much too simple! My husband and I have some really complicated issues!”

.

Well, even though this above advice might not solve every issue in every marriage, it nevertheless would probably go a long way in solving the majority of marital issues!

MOST MEN WOULD LOVE…

.

But let’s face it! Most women are not willing to sacrifice their dominance and pride, to follow such self-sacrificing and humbling advice.

.

But the fact is, most men would love to have a woman who is willing to let go of the reins, and allow the man to, “wear the pants in the family”, as the saying goes!

.

Most men would love to have an affectionate and submissive wife, who listens to and obeys her husband.

.

Most men would love to have a wife who hangs on his arm, and lets him rule!

.

And the woman who does these things might just find that the husband will eventually rise to the occasion, taking hold of the reins, and become the leader she is longing for him to be!

A CHRISTLIKE SPIRIT NEEDED

.

But sadly, most Christian wives insist that the man does his equal part! “I’m not going to be his doormat! He has to do his part, too!”

.

But do we read anything in 1st Peter 3:1-6 that insists that such wifely obedience is dependent on the husband first fulfilling his duties according to the Bible?

.

No we don’t!

SUFFERING FOR CHRIST’S SAKE!

.

Many times and many ways, the Bible says… “Not rendering evil for evil…But and if yehttps://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Anti-Christian_sign_in_Federal_Plaza_Chicago.jpg suffer for righteousness’ sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled…For it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing.” 1st Peter 3:9, 14, 17

.

We must always keep in mind that we are ambassadors for Christ.

.

Our commission from God is to let the world see Christ in us, “the hidden man of the heart!” 1st Peter 3:4

.

And so, we need to pray for the grace to joyfully accept even the ill-treatment from the world, all in hope of bringing lost souls to the foot of the Cross!

PUTTING ON CHRIST NOT OPTIONAL!

http://www.wikigallery.org/wiki/painting_366083/Philip-Hermogenes-Calderon/Figure-At-Prayer

.

But if you, dear lady, are a true woman of God, you must accept this kind of Christlike Spirit.

.

This is the only way to truly become the daughter of Sara (and the daughter of God)!

.

And a true woman of God would never insist that her husband must first obey God, as the prior condition to her own obedience to God’s admonition revealed in 1st Peter 3:1-6

A PRECIOUS PROMISE!

.

But don’t forget the promise found in that passage!https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Anna_Blunden_-_%22For_Only_One_Short_Hour%22_-_Google_Art_Project.jpg

.

Don’t forget that 1st Peter 3:1-6 is the recipe for winning over her husband to Christ!

.

And isn’t that your greatest desire?

.

Isn’t that what you long for each and every day?

.

Of course it is!

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

.

.

. 

FIVE WISE VIRGINS STARS

.

 

This constellation was identified on May 22nd, 2014. It is simply five stars, two from the Serpens Constellation, and three from the Hercules Constellation.

Wikipedia Star-Chart - Corona Borealis

.

What gives this constellation impetus and significance is that it appears as five evenly positioned stars, in a slight oval pattern, as if they were sitting in a meeting, listening, or perhaps watching someone.

.

Second, they appear to be gathered in front of The Crown of Revelation 12 Constellation. (just below Corona Borealis in this Wikipedia star-chart, in which the editor of this site sketched in these two constellations)

.

.

.

.

.

GATHERED AROUND GLORIOUS CROWN!

Corona Borealis/Bootes & Five Wise Virgins

.

The position of these stars is significant in a number of ways. The first, being that these Five Wise Virgins are gathered around the 12-star Crown of Revelation 12. And the obvious message here is, that these wise virgins represent the faithful portion of God’s Church. And as wise virgins, they understand the importance of winning the glorious crown of victory, which Jesus promised.

.

Listen… “Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.” 1st Corinthians 9:24, 25. 

.

And so, God is showing us the difference between the wise and the foolish in His Church. While the wise are gathered around this crown of victory, the foolish are nowhere to be found.
