Daughters of Sarah (Not Palin)

 

“For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands: Even as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement” – (I Pet.3:5,6).

 

   How we desperately need more saved, born again daughters of Sarah today in America. The Devil has declared war against the family. The problems of America are the family problems multiplied a million-fold. The love of money has taken many women out of the home. Affluenza, not influenza is one of the greatest dangers to families today.

 

   Abraham and Sarah are the best type of a Godly married couple in the Bible. They were probably married for over 100 years. Sarah died at 127 and she was the only woman in the Bible whose age was given at death. Abraham was chosen by God to be the father of many nations. The best father and husband becomes the father of the world, of both Jews and Gentiles, and a type of God the Father. God chose the best father and husband with the best mother and wife to be the international father and mother of all time. And God honored their names by not having anyone else called Abraham and Sarah in the whole Bible. (God retired their names in honor). It takes a Godly father and mother, working in agreement according to God’s Word to raise Godly children like Isaac. “Can two walk together, except they be agreed?” (Amos.3:3). The children must have a Godly example to follow.

 

   Abraham, the father of many nations, was willing to offer up his only beloved son Isaac as a sacrifice for sin as God the Father gave His only begotten Son as the Savior for the sins of the world on Calvary. Isaac was the obedient son willing to obey his father even unto death, as Jesus did.

 

   Both husband and wife must be saved and born again so that they have the same Holy Spirit guiding them to follow God’s Word. If one has the spirit of the world and the other the Holy Spirit, they are opposed to each other and cannot be good yokefellows pulling together – “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? And what communion hath light with darkness?” – (2 Cor.6:14). And the worst unequal yoke you can have is when one spouse is born again and not the other. So a born again Christian must choose their mate carefully and not be deceived by marrying a lost church member.

 

   That’s why Abraham and Sarah were half brother and sister. They had the same father but different mothers. These kind of marriages were not uncommon in those days and was not sinful until the law of Moses – (Lev.18:6). Twice Abraham tried to pass off Sarah as his sister rather than his wife because he feared for his life when the two kings saw Sarah’s beauty and wanted her for their harems (but God plagued them with barren harems). They didn’t lie when they said they were brother and sister, but they did deceive, but God protected them. Sarah obeyed Abraham even in this important matter. They had the closest relationship of all-married brother and sister.

 

   They were brother and sister because they pictured the church, brothers and sisters in the Lord – Husbands and wives are to be saved and brothers and sisters in Christ. Christian women are the spiritual successors to Sarah, they are daughters of Sarah – (I Pet.3:6). Just as all believers are sons of Abraham. Born again men and women are brothers and sisters, collectively the bride of Christ, and a part of the family of God. “For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ (Not water baptism but the baptism of the Holy Spirit) have put on Christ… And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise” – (Gal.3:26,27,29). The ideal marriage is like Abraham and Sarah’s, brothers and sisters in Christ, and spiritual children of Abraham. We are all born of the Spirit, born of God’s promise by faith, born of a miracle birth as Isaac was. We have something more than marriage bonds to hold us together – we have Christ, the closest relationship of all.

 

   The most important Godly quality a wife must have is to be in subjection to her husband like Sarah. “Likewise ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands… Even as Sara obeyed Abraham” – (I Pet.3:1,6). Again “Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife…  - (Eph.5:22,23). And that is exactly where Satan is striking to destroy families in the U.S. with the ungodly, antichrist feminist crowd. The majority of households today are ruled by women, and divorce and the break-up of the families is rampant. And now, even more deceitful, is the so-called “Christian Feminism” which is an oxymoron and even more evil and deceitful.

 

   Women are ruling in their house today and ruling more and more in the House of Representatives and the house of God as they become more and more bossy. “Let the women learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence” – (I Tim.2:11,12).

 

   Each husband is to be the speaker of the house and get the last word and a wise godly wife will be silent and allow him this power to rule. This demonic power that has women as speakers of the house is seen with Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House of Representatives in Washington D.C. O how we deny the truth of God’s Word today.

 

   The second area for a wife to be a daughter of Sarah is to be a “keeper at home” – “To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the Word of God be not blasphemed” – (Tit.2:4). America’s greed and coveting more and more things and having our wives work outside the home is the second most deadly area in the destruction of the family. Men used to support their wives, but now the wife must support herself. Our wives are no longer “keepers at home” but ‘leavers of the home’ and leave their children in day-care centers and public school warehouses 50-plus hours a week. It is very difficult for a man to be the head of his family when his wife earns a paycheck because money is power and she will become the one who makes the financial decisions.

 

   We have a very deceitful women who is a ‘Christian feminist’ now running for the office of Vice-President on the Republican ticket named ‘Sarah Palin.’ She is even more deadly and deceitful than the Democrat feminist, Hillary Clinton, as she belongs to the Republican Party which is supposed to be the party of the born again saints. I blow the trumpet of warning today – do not follow Sarah Palin, follow Sarah the wife of Abraham and God’s example of a Godly wife. Otherwise, the standard for Christian women will be the feminist Sarah Palin, not the biblical Sarah and not the woman of (Titus 2:4,5). Do not be deceived in these end days. Sarah Palin personifies the modern feminist as a working mother who usurps authority over the man and does the speaking.

 

   Palin is a member of ‘Feminists for life,’ meaning a feminist who is pro-life, and has an affinity with feminists Geraldine Ferraro and Hillary Clinton, both of whom she honored by mentioning their achievements in her speech in St. Paul: “It was rightly noted in Denver this week that Hillary left 18 million cracks in the highest, hardest glass ceiling in America, but it turns out the women in America aren’t’ finished yet. And we can shatter that glass ceiling once and for all.” This Sarah is not a daughter of Sarah – amen.

 

   Sarah Palin has five children. Her youngest is 5 months and has Down’s Syndrome and her oldest is pregnant and 17. Last April, when Palin gave birth to her 5th child, she dutifully returned to her work as governor of Alaska after three days. A few years prior, while serving as mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, she kept her infant daughter in a car seat under her desk while she worked in her office. She has a strong pro-life stand and has five children, but she leaves her husband and oldest daughter and others to take care of them. Her need to be a ruler takes precedence over her children. She has a feminist worldview and her desire to ‘shatter the glass ceiling’ is legitimizing the career-centric absentee mother. What message was sent to the mothers of America as Sarah Palin took the vice-presidential spotlight while her children and husband watched from the shadows? Her oldest daughter carried her own baby in her womb and carried her mother’s baby in her arms and I wondered how much of her mother’s mothering she has had to do during her life, taking care of her younger brothers and sisters. Sarah Palin needs to be saved and become a daughter of biblical Sarah.

 

   This was all done in St. Paul, Minn., named after St. Paul the apostle and yet she flagrantly disobeys what Paul has written in the Bible. I’m told her husband quit his job so he can become Mr. Mom and take care of the kids. Mr. Palin takes care of the home and the cooking and the bills and paperwork, and drives the kids to school activities, according to his wife. He divides his time between their home in Wasilla and the capital in Juneau, where the Palin daughters go to school. Sarah Palin says – “he can go on just an hour or two of sleep a night. He says “ I can sleep when I die.” “There is no way I could have done this job without his tremendous contributions to the home life. He’s able to keep it organized, like a well-oiled machine.” She has been working outside her home for most of the 20 years of her married life.

 

   So-called Christians across the nations are cheering Mrs. Palin, not caring that as a woman she is not biblically qualified to hold this office and usurps authority over men (Ex.18:21 – Prov.31:23, I Tim.2:12). Her appointment as civil leader, and indeed the feminist strides that made it possible, are a judgment from God. “As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths” (Is.3:12). Don’t be led into error.

 

   God has set up the family and society for the men to rule and the women as the helpmeet and the children always under her care. No woman should leave her husband, her children, and her home, to go to work in the White House with another woman’s husband. St. Paul tells her to work in her own house which is far more important. The proof of this mother-daughter relationship, with biblical Sarah should be evident in the lives of her spiritual descendants by their consistent Godly behavior. It certainly is not evident in Sarah Palin’s life. Just because a woman is a member of a Christian church and baptized with water into a church made with hands it no guarantee she is a member of the true church and baptized by the Holy Spirit into the Church not made with hands. There are many false brethren in our churches today.

 

   Are you saved and born again? Born again describes what happens to you when you’re truly saved. You’re saved from your sins and hell and become a new creature in Christ – “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” – (2 Cor.5:17). You are born into the family of God the Father, the greatest Daddy in the universe. You have spiritually died with Christ on the cross and have become a new holy creature. If you’re not saved, repent of your sins and believe on Christ in your heart by faith and you will receive forgiveness of sins and become a new creature in Christ. All the water in all the baptistries in all the world can never wash away your sins. Only the Lord Jesus can do that with His precious blood and the baptism of the Holy Spirit – (I Cor.12:13).
