Men, Women, Boys and Girls

When God created Adam and Eve, He created them as compliments to each other. Although in Christ there is neither male nor female, this is a Spiritual revelation of how we are one. In Genesis, the Lord created them male and female (naturally and physically). There should be a distinction of this truth in our movement ministries.

I often see females in movement ministries dressed in overtly masculine attire, and at times see males in what could be perceived as feminine attire. The Gospel is universal, so this refers to perception more than our cultural differences. We must be careful to guard against anything that would open up a doorway for error. We should not be deceptive in our demonstration of the Word. When we worship Him in Spirit and Truth, then we must not seek to display what He has not created.

We do not want to send mixed signals when we minister. If we trust the Lord, He will instruct us concerning exactly how we are to move, what we are to wear, and what message He is trying to send. When we trust Him with all that we are, then He will lead us into all truth.

Matthew 19:4 (NKJV)
"And He answered and said to them, “Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’"

Mark 10:6 (NKJV)
"But from the beginning of the creation, God ‘made them male and female.’"
