"This is the time when God is pouring out His Spirit around the world, and sons and daughters are being moved by the Spirit to speak and to act (Acts 2:17). Modern day Deborahs, Priscillas and Phoebes are experiencing the call of God to speak and act in His name. Will the church quench these gifts, or will she encourage these gifts and thereby help facilitate the greatest revival the modern church has yet known?" -- Eddie Hyatt
Beloved, my preoccupation is with people who twist God's Word to suit their own needs and desires and then lead people away from Christ as a result. I am entirely too preoccupied with this to be absorbed anywhere else. I would just as soon never write again about the gender roles Gods has ordained. People need to stop trying to rewrite the Bible on the subject however. Notice how cute he tries to get with the verse from Acts, which is actually quoting the Prophet Joel. These verses do not say that sons and daughters are being moved by the Spirit to speak and act, which is presented purposefully ambiguous here by Hyatt. It says they will prophesy, dream dreams and see visions. Nothing about teaching/preaching and holding authority over men. According to Eddie Hyatt the road to the greatest revival of the church in history is paved by utter disobedience. He is wrong. The gifts of women should be encouraged by the church within the paradigm that God Almighty has clearly set up. There is no "Priscilla challenge." She is mentioned six times in the Bible, always in a greeting or thanking perspective, along with her husband. Four times she is mentioned first and twice he is. This is not some secret code to crack. It is just how Paul wrote the letters. We base doctrine off of clear instructions not vague inferences the suit our pre-determined desires. Women are not victims in the church Eddie. Stop making them out to be.
