“Oh, the unspeakable greatness of that exchange,—the Sinless One is condemned, and he who is guilty goes free; the Blessing bears the curse, and the cursed is brought into blessing; the Life dies, and the dead live; the Glory is whelmed in darkness, and he who knew nothing but confusion of face is clothed with glory.” Trailady

Woman's ordination

“Unto the woman He said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.” (Gen. 3:16).
God cursed woman that day. In Eve, God cursed all women that day. But, women weren’t the only ones cursed. Adam was cursed also. Men were cursed also, with a greater curse than Eve’s. “And unto Adam He said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; in the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.” (Gen. 3:17-19).
We see the original order that our Creator, the Lord God (the same Lord Jesus), gave to His precious human race. Men would lay down their lives in service to their families, and women would lay down their lives in service to their families. But, the capacity for each in which to serve was different between the men and the women.
The women were to serve in the home, having children, loving children, and raising up godly children. The men were to serve outside the home, farming, herding, buying and selling, going to war in defense of their families. Each gender had a role to play in the arrangement established at the beginning by their Creator. This order came from the omniscient mind of God. To overthrow the order of God is to overthrow God, and to establish His adversary. To replace the wisdom of God is to follow an arrangement that is less than perfect, one that can only lead to unhappiness for our race.
“The fellowship of the mystery…God, who created all things by Jesus Christ.” (Eph. 3:9). “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made.” (John 1:1-3).
Christ made man in God’s image: powerful and lion-like. And He made woman in His own image: lowly and lamb-like. Father and Son together accomplish the perfect leadership of the kingdom of heaven. The Father holds the reins of government over His dominion and bears the full agony of any lack during its eternally ongoing development into perfection. He dispenses threatening correction, reproof, instruction, and He bears the load of the distance which dispensing that justice has upon His beloved creation.
The Son performs the demands of His Father. He speaks for God, He personally accomplishes His Father’s will for the instruction of the less than infinitely perfect, developing hosts of heaven and unfallen worlds. As go-between, the Prince tempers His King’s demands, for the sake of Their kingdom. The army and peoples of heaven’s kingdom hear the Father through the Son. The Son of God is a shield for His children to whom He gave birth.
In the beginning before sin, the Son of God was a filter. Like a radio that takes an AC signal that at first is full of destructive DC, and strips most of the DC, leaving only a small, safe voltage on the signal, likewise did the Son love and absorb the full power of His Father’s will, and translate it into non-destructive statutes and laws for the benefit of the intelligent creation.
“Behold My Servant, whom I uphold; Mine elect, in whom My soul delighteth; I have put My Spirit upon Him: He shall bring forth judgment…. The isles shall wait for His Law.” (Isa. 42:1,4).
This system was perfect. It ordained the only good and perfect system to be followed on every world throughout Their vast domain, and everyone was very happy with it. The government of God created a kingdom of peace and harmony. Living under the Godhead of love meant the perfect health and happiness of all of Their holy children.
“And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come. And…those beasts give glory and honour and thanks to Him that sat on the throne, who liveth for ever and ever.” (Rev. 4:8,9). The four beasts, which were the cherubim, represent the kingdom of God. As the children of Israel were laid out in the wilderness, tribe by tribe encircling the tabernacle ring by ring, even so the hosts of heaven and the worlds surrounded the throne, all eyes joyfully and eagerly looking to the holy center where dwelled the Godhead.
The Son of God was the point of most praise and joy! He was the very personable Saviour for all of creation. “Thy people shall be willing in the day of Thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: Thou hast the dew of Thy youth.” (Ps. 110:3).
“The LORD hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.” (Ps. 110:4).
As Priest of the children of the kingdom, all justice and mercy from the King flowed through the Son of God, and all thanksgiving, love, and faith flowed back to the King through His Son. As the tide of love flowed out and back through the Son, He held a most privileged place and His thankfulness to His Father was unbounded. He loved His place in the kingdom at the focus of love from His Father and Their children, and would never covet any other place. And His influence over His children was all-powerful to make them holy and just and good.
“Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God.” (Phil. 2:6). Having partaken of the thrills of motherhood prior to sin, the Son was the only one who should, could, and would go to the full extent to save His wandering children on the one fallen world.
He “made Himself of no reputation, and took upon Him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men.” (Phil. 2:7). He pleased His Father by being Servant of servants. Pleasing His Father and serving His children had always been His great love. Stepping down as low as His Father would require of Him would only continue what He had ever loved to do. The Son’s going through the travail of body, mind, and soul, in order to win back from Satan all of Adam’s race who would be disillusioned with Satan’s corrupted arrangement of do as you please, would be well worth His infinite agony.
“Unto the woman He said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.” (Gen. 3:16). But, Eve was made in Christ’s image. The Son became “a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief.” (Isa. 53:3). Jesus’ sorrow was greatly multiplied and in sorrow He bought back His beloved race, bringing forth new children through their second birth.
“Being in an agony He prayed more earnestly: and His sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.” (Luke 22:44). The travailing pressure on Him in Gethsemane was not from the fear of tomorrow’s crucifixion, but from the wrath of His Father caused by the sin of Their children, and His sorrowful anger for His children’s unhappy state. His conflict was overwhelming, for His attachment to His world of sin could not please His Father’s infinite justice. The presence of sin, and the hosts of darkness illuminating every transgression of His children, brought the pall of death upon Him.
He “resisted unto blood, striving against sin.” (Heb. 12:4). He must die striving with God over our sins, while striving against sin. He must represent both parties of the conflict. He must descend into shock and death without relinquishing His hold on either. He must die by clinging to both until He was split in half; He died loyal to the holy God and also to guilty man. This fulfilled God’s provision for our deliverance from Satan’s captivity. It fulfilled the Father’s will for us. Only a powerful display of mercy could satisfy the Almighty King’s omnipotent disposition of justice for sin. Nothing short of infinite destruction could prevent another departure from the eternal Law. Thus, the omnipotent damnation of the Son destroyed all desire for sin in the hearts of His kingdom; and, by this the Son of God pleased His Father.
“Wherefore God also hath highly exalted Him, and given Him a name which is above every name: that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Phil. 2:9-11).
This suffering and sacrifice was but the outgrowth of the willingness of the Son to serve. Service was His ordained place, set by His Father. Being Servant to His heavenly family had highly exalted Him prior to sin; but, going to the lowest depths of servitude even more highly exalted Him after sin came. Though the Lord was high, yet He went low because of love.
Women, you are especially made in the image of the Son. You have a special gift to comfort and instruct. You are the bread of life to your families. You have many gifts and abilities to use in the up-building of the family of earth. You have the high privilege of taking the will of your husbands and their God, and instilling it into your children. Loving and being loved is the highest honor; there is no need of any higher. Satan has done everything he could to destroy God’s originally ordained arrangement, and to bring it to ruins. You already have the abundant gifts to serve your families; they are built into your hearts and minds. Do your part; in the great work of representing Him and His Father to your children rely on Jesus for His grace to do for you what you can’t do for yourselves. And don’t let the world’s sons of Belial steal away your desire to serve God in accordance with His ordained, heavenly arrangement.
Serve without complaint; this was the way Jesus served. “O how love I Thy law! it is My meditation all the day.” (Ps. 119:97). “I delight to do Thy will, O My God: yea, Thy Law is within My heart.”  (Ps. 40:8). “For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments: and His commandments are not grievous.” (1Jn. 5:3). “Who did no sin, neither was guile found in His mouth: who, when He was reviled, reviled not again; when He suffered, He threatened not; but committed Himself to Him that judgeth righteously.” (1Pet. 2:22,23). Ladies, fulfill your God-ordained part, fall at His feet in desperation to protect your families, and see the salvation of the Lord.
Do not think to change laws established at creation. Stay in your place and do not usurp your men’s place. Do not pull your men down in the presence of your children and theirs. They are ordained to represent our Father in heaven; do not put your hand in with Satan to pull God from His throne by pulling down your men from their exalted position that He gifted them to fill. They are they that testify of the Father. All of them who refuse to represent Him, He will deal with them Man to man. See Job 38:1-4ff. Keep your men at the head of the home and church. Expect much from them, and you will see much accomplished by them. Mothers, say with His servant David,
 “The LORD forbid that I should do this thing unto my master, the LORD’s anointed, to stretch forth mine hand against him, seeing he is the anointed of the LORD.” (1Sam. 24:6).
“Mine eye spared thee; and I said, I will not put forth mine hand against my lord; for he is the LORD’s anointed.” (1Sam. 24:10).
“Destroy him not: for who can stretch forth his hand against the LORD’s anointed, and be guiltless?” (1Sam. 26:9).
“The LORD forbid that I should stretch forth mine hand against the LORD’s anointed.” (1Sam. 26:11).
“This thing is not good that thou hast done. As the LORD liveth, ye are worthy to die, because ye have not kept your master, the LORD’s anointed.” (1Sam. 26:16).
“The LORD render to every man his righteousness and his faithfulness: for the LORD delivered thee into my hand to day, but I would not stretch forth mine hand against the LORD’s anointed.” (1Sam. 26:23).
“And David said unto him, How wast thou not afraid to stretch forth thine hand to destroy the LORD’s anointed? And David called one of the young men, and said, Go near, and fall upon him. And he smote him that he died.” (2Sam. 1:14,15).
“And David said unto him, Thy blood be upon thy head; for thy mouth hath testified against thee, saying, I have slain the LORD’s anointed.” (2Sam. 1:16).
“And David lamented with this lamentation over Saul and over Jonathan his son:
(Also he bade them teach the children of Judah the use of the bow: behold, it is written in the book of Jasher.)
The beauty of Israel is slain upon thy high places: how are the mighty fallen!
Tell it not in Gath, publish it not in the streets of Askelon; lest the daughters of the Philistines rejoice, lest the daughters of the uncircumcised triumph.
Ye mountains of Gilboa, let there be no dew, neither let there be rain, upon you, nor fields of offerings: for there the shield of the mighty is vilely cast away, the shield of Saul, as though he had not been anointed with oil.
From the blood of the slain, from the fat of the mighty, the bow of Jonathan turned not back, and the sword of Saul returned not empty.
Saul and Jonathan were lovely and pleasant in their lives, and in their death they were not divided: they were swifter than eagles, they were stronger than lions.
Ye daughters of Israel, weep over Saul, who clothed you in scarlet, with other delights, who put on ornaments of gold upon your apparel.” (2Sam. 1:17-24).
The birds were made to fly, and by fulfilling their ordained place to fill the air with their flight, they fill it with joyful song, too. Women, you were made to serve and to support and to counsel. You were made to go low. You were made to give your life for the sheep of your pasture. “A virtuous woman…. Her price is far above rubies” (Prov. 31:10)! If you will fulfill your God-given roll you will be given a new song that no man can sing.
“Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls.” (Jer. 6:16).
