Wives submitting to husbands (video reply)

So I was watching a video online about Kirk Cameron saying wives should be submissive to their husbands, and another one about the full house star Candace Cameron Bure and how she said she is submissive to her husband. And the The Young Turks on YouTube completely dissected this Biblical idea of women being submissive to their husbands. I love watching this show because they always bring up good ideas, and questions. But on this video I had to leave my comment because I believe they are seeing submission as the negative submission, like a slave to a master or a maid to a boss. But not at all, this submission that the bible refers to is mutual respect of ideas and more. I wrote out a comment and if you read through it all please let me know what you think … THANK YOU ūüôā

First , Here are the videos if you want to see them..

I know it’s a lot.. please read.. It’s not like that at all . wives submit to husbands THE WAY YOU SUBMIT TO THE LORD and husbands LOVE YOUR WIVES respect your wives JUST AS CHRIST LOVED THE CHURCH.. and how did christ love the church? He died for us so that we may live, and he lives for us so that we can be free of sin and death and live our destiny in him, in goodness and love.. it is not one-sided “yes sir” we don’t submit to god saying yes sir.. we talk to god and tell him the desires in our heart and he listens and makes a way for us, and we listen to his guidance because he knows what is right for us, because he knows our HEARTS, AND OUR SPIRIT AND WHO WE REALLY ARE, his plans are always to prosper and not to harm us, and to make us victorious in him because he loves us and desires us to be happy in our full potential as children of GOD the creator of heaven and earth, and everything you know.. This passage is an addition to marriages, how you’re supposed to treat a marriage WHEN YOU ALREADY HAVE THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT IN YOU: LOVE, PEACE, GOODNESS, KINDNESS, FAITHFULNESS, HOLYNESS, SELF CONTROL, JOY, GENTLENESS ETC. (Gal 5:22)

 

It’s a command to both husband and wives to respect each other, listen to each other, submit to eachother, work together when making decisions, and a wife tells her husband how she feels, and what she wants .. and the husband is supposed to respect her, love her the way Christ loves us, and support her.. submission is showing respect to eachother NOT THE WORDLY SUBMISSION WHICH HAS A STIGMA ATTACHED TO IT, ALMOST LIKE A SLAVE/ MAID/ OBEDIENCE IN EVERYTHING.. NOT THAT AT ALL.. it is assumed that a woman waited for God’s guidance in finding her husband and so his heart will be for her and her heart will be for him, but since we are sinful people we get selfish and want whatever we want and that’s how some marriages end, and god is just laying out some guidelines to make every GOD CENTERED marriage work. And though it does not say MEN be submissive to your wife, it does give other commands which in order to be fulfilled a husband has to also submit to what his wife desires, so they submit to eachother, love eachother equally because they are one, and treat eachother the way they would treat themselves.

And yes Husbands have the final final say in decisions that they can’t come into agreement with, just because someone has to have the final say of what they’re going to do, and the husband is the head of the household. And the command is for wives to be submissive .. ,but he doesn’t just decide no or yes… as a christ centered marriage and as head of household he goes and talks to god/ prays and God will guide them both..And the husband is commanded to love her so much that he will do what is best for her, no matter what. and the only decision he’ll say no to ,, is if he sees a better way or if it will hurt his other half in some way.

BIBLE VERSES:

Ephesians 5: 22 Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands AS YOU DO TO THE LORD. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. 24 Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything. 25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her 26 to make her holy, cleansing[a] her by the washing with water through the word, 27 and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. 28 In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. 29 After all, no one ever hated their own body, but they feed and care for their body, just as Christ does the church‚ÄĒ 30 for we are members of his body. 31 ‚ÄúFor this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.‚ÄĚ[b] 32 This is a profound mystery‚ÄĒbut I am talking about Christ and the church. 33 However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.

Acts 17:26-27

 

26 From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands. 27 God did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any one of us. РActs 17:26-27

 

Proverbs 22:17-29

Sayings of the Wise

17 Listen to the words of the wise;
apply your heart to my instruction.
18 For it is good to keep these sayings in your heart
and always ready on your lips.
19 I am teaching you today‚ÄĒyes, you‚ÄĒ
so you will trust in the Lord.
20 I have written thirty sayings for you,
filled with advice and knowledge.
21 In this way, you may know the truth
and take an accurate report to those who sent you.
22 Don’t rob the poor just because you can,
or exploit the needy in court.
23 For the Lord is their defender.
He will ruin anyone who ruins them.
24 Don’t befriend angry people
or associate with hot-tempered people,
25 or you will learn to be like them
and endanger your soul.
26 Don’t agree to guarantee another person’s debt
or put up security for someone else.
27 If you can’t pay it,
even your bed will be snatched from under you.
28 Don’t cheat your neighbor by moving the ancient boundary markers
set up by previous generations.
29 Do you see any truly competent workers?
They will serve kings
rather than working for ordinary people.

Ephesians 6:10-17

The Whole Armor of God

The armor of God is to help you feel protected and safe, most people say it daily when they’re walking out of their house or when they’re going to sleep. It’s about the weapons that God has given us in the¬†physical¬†to protect ourselves in the spiritual and anything that comes our way. Be confident in your prayer and you’ll really feel protected no matter what happens.

10  Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

11  Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

12  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.

13  Wherefore take unto you the whole armor 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: in Jesus name AMEN!

Proverbs 16

Proverbs 16 

16 We can make our own plans,
    but the Lord gives the right answer.

2 People may be pure in their own eyes,
    but the Lord examines their motives.

3 Commit your actions to the Lord,
    and your plans will succeed.

4 The Lord has made everything for his own purposes,
    even the wicked for a day of disaster.

5 The Lord detests the proud;
    they will surely be punished.

6 Unfailing love and faithfulness make atonement for sin.
    By fearing the Lord, people avoid evil.

7 When people’s lives please the Lord,
    even their enemies are at peace with them.

8 Better to have little, with godliness,
    than to be rich and dishonest.

9 We can make our plans,
    but the Lord determines our steps.

10 The king speaks with divine wisdom;
    he must never judge unfairly.

11 The Lord demands accurate scales and balances;
    he sets the standards for fairness.

12 A king detests wrongdoing,
    for his rule is built on justice.

13 The king is pleased with words from righteous lips;
    he loves those who speak honestly.

14 The anger of the king is a deadly threat;
    the wise will try to appease it.

15 When the king smiles, there is life;
    his favor refreshes like a spring rain.

16 How much better to get wisdom than gold,
    and good judgment than silver!

17 The path of the virtuous leads away from evil;
    whoever follows that path is safe.

18 Pride goes before destruction,
    and haughtiness before a fall.

19 Better to live humbly with the poor
    than to share plunder with the proud.

20 Those who listen to instruction will prosper;
    those who trust the Lord will be joyful.

21 The wise are known for their understanding,
    and pleasant words are persuasive.

22 Discretion is a life-giving fountain to those who possess it,
    but discipline is wasted on fools.

23 From a wise mind comes wise speech;
    the words of the wise are persuasive.

24¬†Kind words are like honey‚ÄĒ
    sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.

25 There is a path before each person that seems right,
    but it ends in death.

26 It is good for workers to have an appetite;
    an empty stomach drives them on.

27 Scoundrels create trouble;
    their words are a destructive blaze.

28 A troublemaker plants seeds of strife;
    gossip separates the best of friends.

29 Violent people mislead their companions,
    leading them down a harmful path.

30 With narrowed eyes, people plot evil;
    with a smirk, they plan their mischief.

31 Gray hair is a crown of glory;
    it is gained by living a godly life.

32 Better to be patient than powerful;
    better to have self-control than to conquer a city.

33 We may throw the dice,
    but the Lord determines how they fall.

Day 08: Something recent that you‚Äôre proud of

I now pronounce Mr & Mrs CABRERA:

I was happy to hear those words come out of the pastors mouth.

On August 13 one of my sisters got married. She is the first person to break the vicious cycle of heartbreak that was started years back in my family.¬†Out of five girls not one of us had found that supposed “one” that we are meant to be with until now.

Thanks to God breaking those chains in our lives we finally get to see changes in everything.

My oldest sister caught the bouquet which means… Another wedding in the family? Probably just a myth..

One sister married, one engaged, & 2 trusting God & then there’s me; I’m still young and not expecting to fall in love anytime soon.<3

Overall Everything was very beautiful, It was a very emotional and exciting day and we were happy to see that friends and family made it to celebrate their special day.

I am proud that they got to start a new life together, I proud that she happened to find her true love, and I am especially proud that God managed to unite them and achieve a promise that he had made.

Things are looking up ^ ūüôā

My sister is now a Cabrera which is my last name also (we have different fathers)!

2 Peter 1:20-21

A lot of people say that they don’t believe in the Bible because it was written by men. In 2 Peter it explains how it was done. It wasn’t made from the men’s own understanding, they were filled with the holy spirit of God- meaning God was speaking to them and telling them what to write. <– when I say that to my friends they usually say, ” Isn’t ¬†God powerful enough to write it himself?” Yes, he is, ¬†but why not let a human write to the human, they were like us, they understood our weaknesses and our strengths.

Even if God wrote it himself, would people believe that he wrote it?  He would still give no proof, it would just say God wrote it.

Instead he knew many people were going to be confused about the Bible so he included verses to quench our curiosity.

Paul wrote that the bible is not made from myths, the prophets were eye witnesses to God’s Majesty.

20 Above all, you must realize that no prophecy in Scripture ever came from the prophet’s own understanding, 21 or from human initiative. No, those prophets were moved by the Holy Spirit, and they spoke from God. Р2 Peter 1:20-21

Day 4 – Jeremiah 33:3

Have you ever asked God for help and it seemed like nothing happened?

God says , ” Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.” – Jeremiah 33:13

No you’re not being foolish talking to yourself, God hears and sees everything and you’re not being weak asking for help, stronger is the person who is brave enough to ask for help. When you’re in need of some one to talk to, God is always there just call out to him but remember God does not work on your time, he works on his time, and that means he will intervene just in time. And if you’ve asked him for help before and it didn’t seem like he was there, I assure you he was but God knows our hearts and what we are capable of handling, why not let us use the opportunity to learn how brave we can be or resistant. He is always there to help us because he loves us but he is not going to intrude unless we ask him to and even then he can work with you in the most subtle way, that you would never notice if it was God or just luck. – I don’t believe in luck.
