Empowerment For Women - Adam & Eve

By Apostle Cathryn Ndyabagye

God made man in woman in a very unique way. How? He made the woman from man, to be able to have children and produce offspring, and for a companion for the man-his HELP MEET. meaning she bears children.

To see the Unity and equality in how God loves all people and men and woman the same. God is a God of Equality. 

I want to show you things in the Bible that prove this.

It takes both man and the woman to bring forth offspring. So, when God put humans on this earth they had a two-fold leadership and were equal. ONE in Him.

Woman came from the rib of man, and man comes from the womb of a woman. God knew what he was doing with this.....The man and woman are so unique, yet different yet are ONE in God's eyes and He loves them both the same. AMEN!

1 Corinthians 11:12
For as woman was made from man, even so man is also born of woman; and all [whether male or female go forth] from God [as their Author].

Gen. 2:23-24 says:
23Then Adam said, This [creature] is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of a man. 24Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and shall become united and cleave to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.

Now if God made man superior, he would only favored man, and not care about the lady. He created them both perfect to begin with so, both were precious to God. (and still are) because God never divides the body of Christ, people do!

The Bible never says you are not equal. He always stresses in the Bible that we are ONE in the Body of Christ, and that when people marry the two become ONE. This means they are both loved the same by God. 

It is man's philosophies and perception that has changed on this earth,how women and men were to be. But God laid a foundation for the man, woman and family.

Men and women are both supposed to submit one to another, honor and respect one another. Not be dominate. They are to care for each other. The body of women is the man's, and the body of the man is the woman's. Equally, is how God created us, and set a foundation, and expects us to be the same to each other.

Women, don't let any man degrade you or make you feel you are not important, or LOWER than him as far as a person. It's only in position that he is responsible for you. God didn't say a woman was not good enough for man. God made the woman-so men respect that!

Jesus never used his position to put any of the Church down, especially women! 

Women very important too! In God's eyes they are just as good as the man, because women are part of men and the man part of the women--You are ONE.

If your husband thinks he is better than you, and treats you that way, he is not being ONE in God with you. 

How your husband treats you, is how he is treating God and himself. For what he does to you he does to himself, because you are ONE person now. :) Men forget this sometimes! :)

When Eve ate of the tree of knowledge, Adam ate also! They both sinned! However, since she caused her husband too. Causing him to give into sin, it tempting him to sin.

So she sinned first. If God was only for the man and only cared about him, God would have punished only the woman. God is a fair when Adam and Eve both sinned. He punished them both...

When they both decided to disobey God, they had to pay the price for their sin. They missed their chance to live eternally on this earth with no sin. They were no longer allowed to be perfect anymore.

They changed earth's future of a sinless life. So now we all bare the punishment that sin caused. And it's through Jesus that we can live perfect and forever.

We all die at the end of our life, and we carry the curses that Adam and Eve were given. But remember, spiritually we never die, because of Jesus.

Men work to the sweat of their brow to support their wife and family, and the lady bares pain in childbirth and serves her husband. 

Their life went from Perfect with no sin--to sinful in one day!

Since Satan tried to mess up God's creation through the snake, the serpent was cursed...

 Read Gen. 3:14-15
14And the Lord God said to the serpent, Because you have done this, you are cursed above all [domestic] animals and above every [wild] living thing of the field; upon your belly you shall go, and you shall eat dust [and what it contains] all the days of your life. 15And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her Offspring; He will bruise and tread your head underfoot, and you will lie in wait and bruise His heel.

Let me share some points in these scriptures to shed some new light to those who are not aware of what we are really dealing with...

God appointed a burden on Adam and Eve--To carry out to their offspring...

Because Eve listened to Satan through the snake, the snake was cursed and God made the snake and women enemies.

When the Bible says to the serpent that he will put an enmity between him and his offspring and the woman and her offspring.

Let's focus on this a minute.

Enmity means: Mutual enemies. And if you think carefully you will understand why.

The snake tempted woman, and she allowed the snake to tempt her, instead of listening to God.

Because of this, the women will think, before she messes up in her life, because there is a punishment with sin.

And though the snake (or Satan) is her enemy, she can now step on Satan's head in victory, and can overcome him!

God made the snake her enemy to remind woman that she needs to be careful and watch her ways, and not allow Satan to tempt her. It's a sign for her to remember that sin brings death.

And when the scripture talked  about her offspring, he was pointing to Jesus Christ.

It is through Christ that woman have hope in Jesus to help them stay away from sin. It was by His death that Satan was defeated.

Christ fulfilled his victory over Satan, the wonderful promise spoken in the same scripture in 


Romans 16:20
20And the God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah) be with you.

So you see God's perfect plan in every ounce of scripture, there is always a victorious reason for everything.

Jesus fulfilled the law and he came from woman to be born, to die for each one of us. He set us free. Satan is a defeated foe!

So through man, he made woman and woman is born to be an overcomer of sin and Satan--in Christ, and woman are the encouragers of man. We help assist men so he will not sin either. AMEN!

I am basically focusing on the woman's role in this lesson because we know man also had burdens and punishment to carry too. 
Being the leader is one of them, and many have not learned how to lead right, with a loving spirit. 

My focus is on women because,
they need to see their equality that God gave to them. You don't have to feel belittled by a man, or a rebellious woman. No matter what people say, God made you equal. It was the position of responsibility that God put on man and women. Their position as husband and wife. Their roles to fall into to help each other. 

They are responsible for honoring one another and loving one another too. helping each other to stay together in God. IN SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH. AMEN

For a man to belittle a woman, is not living according to scriptures. So,  I want to encourage women to stand firm in the faith, be strong in God and know we are all ONE. 

You will be the best wife if you stay in God's will and love your husband and pray for him.

Women you don't have to be pitiful (as a person) to be humble. That is not the definition of humility. You can still keep your dignity. You can still be respected. Living right with God is the key. And you have to take your stand against sin!

God didn't say to submit to your husband's sins. He was meaning to love your husband and honor him. If he is sinful you surely can't sin with him or honor his sin. So remember your role is to be Godly and righteous in Jesus!

Now you are seeing the way God balanced everything in scriptures. Never showing favoritism to men, and He is a fair and just God. Now you see why the role of a wife is so important to her husband too.

God gives women a natural desire to assist the husband--and it's God given so we don't need men to demand that. God already made us that way. AMEN!

We are more than child bearers, maid service and housekeepers! AMEN We have a purpose in God in our marriages! We are supposed to be a team with our husband. AMEN!

Does that take away your ministry? NO. Does that take away his? No. You both have a calling in God individually and can support each other in your callings. That simple. :)

God knew Eve sinned, that Eve got sidetracked and got her mind off of being with her husband, wandering to the tree of knowledge.

This is why God gave the woman the yearning to serve her husband at that time and always to keep her in ONENESS with her husband, so she will avoid sin.

This is one of the reasons why the scriptures say, Women submit yourselves to your own husband. Not meaning she has to be his slave, just that she needs to be with her husband only. 

If you notice--when a woman strays from her husband--Satan comes against her?

If she stays true to God and her husband and keeps that ONENESS strong in Jesus, she will be a stronger woman in God, and will be able to overcome any attacks, or traps Satan throws at her. AMEN

When a woman lives right by God, the Lord will guard her, and forewarn her in the Holy Spirit when the enemy sneaks up to strike.

When a woman is well established in the Faith of God and stands in the Word, and lives in the right standing with God, she can step on Satan's head, and take full authority in God to be victorious. AMEN!

And if her husband is evil and not living right. She will be faithful to him but pray hard and stand faithful to God trusting Him that her husband will get right with God. AMEN!

When a woman has a humble Godly man for a husband, she becomes MORE ONE WITH HIM too, because she is standing strong beside a man who truly loves her and is ONE with her in God!

An abusive or prejudice man towards his wife is weakening his wife and causing the relationship to be off-balance. He brakes the ONENESS in God when he mistreats her. This type of man wrecks his very home. He makes his wife miserable.
A man who makes his wife happy and loves God blesses his wife. AMEN!

Ecclesiastes 4:9-10

9Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. 10For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.

Christ was born from woman to die and raise from the dead for both men and women to live abundantly--Eternally! So they can both should be a UNITED and UNDIVIDED in JESUS.

Because the woman are emotional, she needs to really rely on God with
Self-Control in the Holy Spirit--to be able to be a mature Christian. When she is walking in the right standing with God, she makes God happy and her husband happy.

"But my husband does not respect me!" Yes, I know that men have the wrong idea about women and their positions as Christians, They seems to want to put us in a different box.

You see--We stand with them--in the same box. We are ONE with them. So, they can't make us into a lesser person just because they think so.

Abuse is not tolerated in God's eyes. If you are abused, God will deal with your husband on this issue. Keep praying for him!

Christ never abused the church nor put down a woman, so why would he want men to do that to women?

Women, We are equal whether men like it or not. :) It's called equality in Christ!

Have you ever noticed how the Bible says that God has no respect of persons?

This means God loves us all 'the same' and we are all ONE in His eyes. He does not favor his children one over the other He loves the men he made and the women he made too! AMEN The same spirit abides in each of our temples for Jesus!

Romans 2:11
For there is no respect of persons with God.


Many men want women to be in a lopsided mode, 2nd class citizens, yet God does not work like that.

When God made man and woman 
and put them together. He had a divine purpose for making men and women different so they could help one another grow in different areas...

Tell me--Did He take part of the woman's half away to make the whole not quite equal when they marry?

NO, God used two halves and put them together to make a whole. Two equal halves make a whole!

So men need to realize they need to stop putting women in boxes or making them less than they are. Honor and respect is due to all people in Jesus name!

Galatians 4:27-31
We are children of Promise. Heirs of the King. Equal overcomer's!

Read Galatians 4 chapter. It speaks of the barren woman. And the ways of the law, and also compared to now after Christ came. How we are free now.

30But what does the Scripture say? Cast out and send away the
slave woman and her son, for never shall the son of the slave woman
be heir and share the inheritance with the son of the free woman.
31So, brethren, we [who are born again] are not children of a slave
woman [the natural], but of the free [the supernatural].

It does not matter how many children you have, or if you are barren or not. You are supernatural in God. You are blessed because, you have the blood of Jesus flowing through your veins.

Women, You matter to God!

Also Gal 4: 23 says:

23But whereas the child of the slave woman was born according to the flesh and had an ordinary birth, the son of the free woman was born in fulfillment of the promise.

What is it saying? Women we are mamas to other children because we
are supernatural in God. We are FREE WOMEN IN JESUS!

The Word ONE means: Single thing characterized by unity; forming a whole; United; undivided. So the whole body men and women are ONE.

We were with our parents,  then left them to become one with the Husband.

The couple is supposed to be ONE FLESH. Couples never need to allow themselves to be divided. Be yoked in the Love of Christ like God wants them to be. In Unity together.

We need to take this seriously! It's all about attitude and following the word! AMEN!

Women, stop being the dripping faucet--turn off the complains and flow of nagging your man. Start living right with God.

Bring honor into your home by being an example to your husband and children. Start counting your blessings.

Let your prayers never stop, may you always grow in the Word and draw your strength from God.

Give and stand in your faith which God established you in and God will bring victory and favor in your life.

Stop discouraging your man. Try to encourage him instead.

Proverbs 14:1
Every wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands.

Proverbs 21:9
It is better to dwell in a corner of the housetop, than with a brawling woman in a wide house.

Proverbs 27:15
A continual dripping on a day of violent showers and a contentious woman are alike

So we need to control our emotions *(not because you are ordered to do so by your husband) But because God wants you to act right,so that it does not affect our husband or family in a negative way.

Just because you are emotional, does not mean God wants you to only stand in them. You need to mature and learn some logic, common sense and good judgment. Treat your husband better.

A point to ponder:
Emotions should come naturally--not to be used to hurt others. 

God makes women free through Jesus!

Women, I want you to remember something..

When we go to heaven, we will be spiritual beings, not male nor female.
So what man tries to do to females in this life is on their head!

Matthew 22:30
For in the resurrected state neither do [men] marry nor are [women]
given in marriage, but they are like the angels in heaven.

Did you know women ministered to Jesus? Yes, this is true.

Matthew 27:55
There were also numerous women there, looking on from a distance,
who were of those who had accompanied Jesus from Galilee, ministering to Him.

Women were the ones who stood with Jesus until the he died.

Luke 23:55
The women who had come with [Jesus] from Galilee followed closely and saw the tomb and how His body was laid.

It was women who let the apostles know that Jesus rose from the dead because all the men had left Jesus.

Luke 24:10
Now it was Mary Magdalene and Joanna and Mary the mother of James, and the other women with them, who reported these things to the apostles.

Back in Jesus day, when Jesus died and rose from the dead,the men had negative attitudes towards women and some still do today.

Read this verse: This was when the ladies told the disciples that Jesus rose from the dead, but the men would not believe them.

Luke 24:11
But these reports seemed to the men an idle tale (madness, feigned
things, nonsense), and they did not believe the women.

When the men went back to the tomb finally believed the women, they saw if for themselves:

Luke 24:24
So some of those [who were] with us went to the tomb and they found it just as the women had said, but Him they did not see.

What my point is to you ladies, is to remember that you need to do as Ruth did, as Esther did, as Deborah did.

Use your talents that God gave to you and be the best you can be for Jesus and don't let anyone intimidate you!

Only worry what God thinks about you. Be FREE in God--to be YOU!

Step out in faith and make a difference!

Go with God and he will go with you!
