A woman that does not submit to her husband cannot submit to God. It is absolutely impossible.
You see, there is ONLY one way for a married woman to submit to Christ (and to God) – and it is by obeying God THROUGH submission to her husband.
Like it or not, this is what the Bible explicitly says.
“But I want you to understand that the head of every man is Christ, the HEAD OF A WIFE IS HER HUSBAND, and the head of Christ is God.” (1 Corinthians 11:3)
This is the clear undeniable hierarchy of submission laid out in the Bible.
God – -> Christ – -> Man – -> Wife.
A woman who cannot or refuses to obey hierarchy beginning with the husband, is not submitted to Christ and to God by default – no matter how much she deceives herself.
It is a Heaven mandated chain of command with the man being the head of the wife and captain of the ship. So, if you are a woman and you find it difficult to accept this simple thing, DO NOT GET MARRIED.
It is thus important to point out that a woman’s submission to her submission is not an issue of negotiation. You cannot attach conditions to it, or turn it into a trade-by-barter system where a man gives love, provision, security, or whatever else, in return for his wife’s submission.
Submission is a COMMAND based on a God ordained hierarchy. It is also an UNCONDITIONAL God mandated duty. This means it isn’t based on anything a husband does or doesn’t do.
Essentially, a wife submission to her husband isn’t earned, merited, or deserved. It is simply given because God said so.
This is the SAME way a man’s love, protection, and responsibility for his wife isn’t earned or deserved. It is simply because God said so.
Again, if you find these things difficult to accept, DO NOT GET MARRIED. Marriage is not by force.
So let’s trash that often trotted lie that a woman wouldn’t have a problem submitting to a man who treats her properly or loves her like Christ loves the Church.
It is pure nonsense.
A lack of submission is simply from a rebellious spirit and based on a explicit/intentional disobedience to God’s word.
Women, understand your husband is not your mate or primarily your friend. He is your HEAD, first and foremost. This means you have to respect his position, and acknowledge his God given authority over you through submission to him.
If any of what is laid out here makes you feel uneasy or uncomfortable, you need to go for a deliverance session as a matter of urgency. There is a demonic spirit of rebellion in you.
