A major setback to the Church’s fulfillment of Christ’s Great Commission (Matt 28:16-20) is that for far too long, more than half of God’s workforce has been redundant. This is because the Church has operated under-capacity by limiting and under-utilizing the gifts and talents of women. However, this seems to be changing as God is releasing His daughters everywhere to worship and work!
God is letting loose the shackles and fetters of culture, tradition and religion! He is breaking the locks on the doors of the boxes and cages of fear, prejudice and mediocrity! He is opening the doors of the prisons of low self-esteem and self worth, depression, oppression and suppression! God is releasing His women to worship and work!! (Isaiah 61:1-4). Hallelujah!
“…And they shall rebuild the old ruins, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the ruined cities, the desolations of many generations”
Godly women can now rise up, breakthrough the limitations, shake the chains and fetters off their feet and hands, come out of the boxes, caves and prisons to worship and serve God!! Culture, tradition religion and prejudice can no longer stop or hold them back, for they refuse to conform to the boundaries set for them by human beings! Their ears will be unstopped to hear from God and their tongues shall be loosened to proclaim what they have heard!
These God-fearing, prayerful, Spirit-filled, wise, bold and confident women will rise from the place of mediocrity to influence, impact and change their families, churches, workplaces, communities, societies, and nations.
These women will preach the Gospel, win souls to Christ and teach and disciple young converts. They will engage in prayer, intercession and spiritual warfare, and will be the watchmen over their communities, cities and nations. They will raise their families and the next generation in a godly manner. These women will be found everywhere – home, schools, workplace, shopping malls, etc – and, like yeast, salt and light, influence and impact their environment for Christ!
Psalm 68: 11,12 (AMP)
“The Lord gives the word [of power]; the women who bear and publish [the news] are a great host. The kings of the enemies’ armies, they flee, they flee! She who tarries at home divides the spoil [left behind].”
They will form a global ‘army’ and network, and will become mighty instruments in God’s hand for the final harvest into His kingdom. This mighty army of women will join hands, together with the men, like Moses, Aaron and Miriam, Deborah and Barak, Esther and Mordecai, Priscilla and Aquila, to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ!!
JESUS CHRIST IS COMING SOON! He is coming to receive His Bride, the Church. There is, therefore, an urgent need for preparation, and the Gospel must be preached in every nation on earth. What we now have is a critical situation of ‘all hands on deck’. Hence, women must be restored, raised and released to work.
“But when He saw the multitudes He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest is truly plentiful, but the labourers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out labourers into His harvest”
I have good news for women: A woman, who has been born again from above, and is yielded, surrendered, and filled with God’s living Spirit is free from the oppressive grip of sin and its consequences. She is free to live as a daughter of God knowing that her identity is secure in Him. She is free to discover her God-given purpose. She is free to influence others in her sphere of life with God’s kingdom purposes, mindset and characteristics, as revealed in Christ Jesus and incorporated in the Great Commission.
Indeed, the shed blood of Jesus has purchased our freedom!!! We can now rise up and work. I encourage you, therefore, to prayerfully find your place in the harvest field. Locate your particular assignment, position and rank, and sharpen your tools. Let His word and Spirit guide you, as you rise up to fulfil your assignment.
Your reward will be great! You shall certainly hear these words one day, “Well done, good and faithful servant… enter into the joy of the Lord!” (Matthew 25:21)
“And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.” – Matthew 24:14
