1 Corinthians 11- Followers of Christ

Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ. Now I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances, as I delivered them to you. But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God. Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonoureth his head. But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven. For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered. For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man. For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man. 1 Corinthians 11:1-8

 The Bible tells us that Satan is the “god of this world” (2 Corinthians 4:4) So knowing this, it’s not surprising everything the world pushes for is against the nature of God. When we read these scriptures today by Paul, it’s probably highly offensive to most people, because everyone has been so conditioned by the world what to think or believe. It’s ingrained in our minds, however the belief system of this world is Satanic in origin.

If you don’t believe me just read what the Holy Spirit revealed to the Apostle Paul here, “the head of the woman is man” I can see the riots going on in the streets right now, how offensive, how dare Paul make such a statement! However this is the wisdom of God and not of this world. So Paul starts by saying “Be followers or imitators of me, as I am of Christ” Paul is teaching these principles, not because he has a masculine agenda, but because it was revealed to him by Christ, who is our Lord

We worship a God of law and order, that’s just a fact. God is not the author of confusion or chaos. So there has to be an order to humanity, Paul reveals it here, Christ is above man, and man is above the woman. Why? Because if you remember , the woman was created from man. This is a creation, authoritative order designed by God. I know there are many people who don’t like it, or rebel against it, but that’s Gods design, again if you are going to be a follower of Christ, you should imitate Christ

Now you might ask, what is up with the head coverings? Again going back to the authoritative order, Christ, Man, and Woman. It’s a sign of respect and reverence, the long hair of a woman symbolizes the head covering. Again, I know there are a million arguments against this teaching, but again this is the inspired Word of God, if you have an issue with it, take it up to God, allow the Holy Spirit to further reveal the purpose to your heart

The bottom line is if Jesus is our Lord, he is our Master, imitate Christ, be a true Born Again follower of Jesus, Amen!
