The War Against Women: Feminism and the Real Enemy
Ladies, there’s a war against you, but your adversary is not men as you’ve been led to believe. There’s a spirit in the air that’s leading women to disrespect, reject, undermine and oppress men. It’s rooted in Feminism, but it’s coming from Satan; for the Bible is clear who the real enemy of everyone is:
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. (Ephesians 6:12)
Flesh and blood refer to humans, but principalities, powers, rulers of darkness and spiritual wickedness is something entirely different; those are the minions of the god of this world, Lucifer (2 Corinthians 4:4). He’s also known as the prince of the power of the air, “the spirit that now works in the children of disobedience” (Ephesians 2:2); this is the real enemy.
Do you feel funny about men these days? Do you feel like they’re too direct, aggressive, unloving, careless, irresponsible, unworthy of their authority? Do you think patriarchy is a flawed system? Do you think matriarchy would be better? Well, it’s that spirit in the air, and it’s working on your mind.
It’s leading you to feel discontentment, jump to conclusions, have inspirations, desires, and emotions that are not necessarily your own; this spirit is leading you to see men as the problem. You assume these are your thoughts and feelings, but it’s the enemy projecting his mind, will, and emotions into your soul.
Did you know he could do that? He did it to Eve. We’re all aware of the biblical account: God tells Adam not to eat from the tree, and Adam relays the command to his wife. Later, while the couple is near that same tree, Satan, speaking through a serpent, tricked Eve into disobeying God’s command; and then led her husband to do the same.
Eve was deceived, but Adam wasn’t (1 Timothy 2:14). It’s Adam’s fault humanity fell. Eve is not to blame because she was “beguiled.” When the Serpent finished speaking to Eve, notice how she “saw” a few things regarding the forbidden fruit:
And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat (Genesis 3:6).
Now how did Eve “see” all these things in this tree, especially when they’re in a garden full of trees? What made this tree stand out? Let’s recap what she saw:
- She saw that it was good for food
- She saw that it was pleasant to the eyes
- She saw that it was able to make one wise
Satan is a master of projected thought. I believe he did a lot more talking “in the spirit, to her mind” than verbally; this is why God warns us about the enemy’s mind games and supplies spiritual armor for protection:
The weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds; casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ (2 Corinthians 10:4-5)
Satan’s warfare is mental. He floods our minds with “imaginations” and “high things,” proud thoughts that are contrary to the knowledge of God; giving us ideas that don’t align with scripture and go against what the Holy Spirit says. These imaginations are coming from everywhere.
When confronted by God, Eve replies that the serpent beguiled her (Genesis 3:13). To beguile means to seduce, deceive, charm, and enchant to lead astray. Since this was her first ever experience with something like that, she fell for it.
But why did Satan ignore Adam and talk directly to Eve? It’s because Eve was the weakest of the two. The Bible says women are the weaker vessel (1 Peter 3:7). Men are weak, but women are weaker—more fragile in the body and soul.
What’s imperative to grasp is this: women are easier to manipulate by Satan, men, or anyone. Woman don’t like to hear that. Their pride says they’re not that gullible, but the Word says so:
Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered. (1 Peter 3:7)
Men are vulnerable to deception, but women even more; this is why husbands, brothers, and fathers need to protect the minds of the women in their lives. Unfortunately, some women are deceived into believing they’re superwomen, and they despise protection and counsel, especially from men.
To add to the problem, men just as Adam did, fail to guard and protect women, instead seek to please them by giving in and following their lead in exchange for acceptance and pleasure. So what’s a woman to do? Should women follow men? After all, it was one man’s choice that caused the state of life today.
The sins of humanity
Men have neglected and oppressed women, beat them into submission, pimped, raped and killed them; treated them like second class citizens, treated them like meat, underpaid them on jobs, cheated on them, and abandoned them and children with no financial support. Men have done some terrible things to women.
So, should matriarchy be the new standard since men have committed such atrocities against women? Let’s not forget, all men don’t do these things, some men, but not all.
Let’s not forget what women do
Woman manipulate men by withholding respect, sex, and support. Woman rape men. Women verbally and physically abuse men by kicking, punching and pouring hot liquids on them. Women vandalize men’s property.
Women lie about rape and physical abuse. Women treat men like pieces of meat. Women commit adultery. Women drown and poison their children. Women commit abortion. Women impregnate themselves from used condoms of rich men to get large child support checks. Mothers turn children’s hearts against their fathers.
Many men don’t speak of these things because of their pride. One of the three lies taught about manhood is men are supposed to be invulnerable, but men aren’t, and women continue to bruise men. Women commit all kinds of abominations against men, but not all woman participate in this. All women don’t do these things, some women, but not all.
Therefore, matriarchy wouldn’t change a thing and it hasn’t changed a thing. Both sexes still hurt one another. Both sexes are evil. The problem isn’t patriarchy or masculinity, it’s sin (Romans 3:23):
10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: 11 There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. 12 They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.’
13 Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips: 14 Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness: 15 Their feet are swift to shed blood: 16 Destruction and misery are in their ways: 17 And the way of peace have they not known: 18 There is no fear of God before their eyes.’ (Romans 3:10-18)
Men mistreat women and women abuse men; the problem is sin. While Feminism claims to be about equality, we’ll expose that it’s more about the oppression of men, the very thing Feminists are accusing patriarchy of doing to women.
If both genders are the problem, the answer is not to subjugate one another, rather forgiveness and healing through the Holy Spirit is the solution. Moreover, both genders need to stop fighting, realize who’s instigating the war, and fight him.
But sadly, the enemy has completely turned men and women against each other. For those “children of disobedience” unconscious of the schemes of Satan, they’re defeated, but the Saints of God don’t have to be. God has given us a spiritual helmet of salvation that can block the mental attacks of the enemy; here’s how to put it on.
God loves women and doesn’t want them to be destroyed or used to destroy others.
We don’t have to be “ignorant of the devil’s devices” (2 Cor 2:11), but “wise as serpents, but harmless as doves” (Matthew 10:16). In this series, we’ll expose Satan’s plan to destroy society using women as the weapon. We’ll show how he’s doing five things:
- Destroying the marriages of women.
- Preventing women from getting married.
- Turning men into women and women into men.
- Crowning women as the authority of society.
Stay subscribed as we unfold the plans of the enemy, and in the meantime, put on the whole armor of Christ so you can withstand the mental attacks of the enemy:
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.’
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: 18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints (Ephesians 6:13-18)
