The Redemption of Eve

For a while now - perhaps about 10 months - I've been hearing about "women".

I have heard messages about women.
I have heard prophecies about women.
I have received prophecies specific to my "womanhood".

Then yesterday morning God spoke to my Spirit and mentioned in His message to me that, "...it must need be unto me, as a woman, as a lioness whom He has raised up, to do that which He has purposed me to do."

And then last night, while teaching, a student asked me a question regarding scripture that I almost couldn't answer because of a partial revelation about women!

Genesis 3:15 "And I [God] will put enmity between thee [the serpent] and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel."  This is the scripture the student asked me about.  Generally he just wanted the basic meaning.  But I got stuck on the first part of the scripture - that God would put enmity between the woman and the serpent... yes between her seed and his seed, but specifically the "woman." 

God didn't say He'd put enmity between the serpent and man (meaning mankind), He said "woman".  And since the consequences of sin in the Garden pertain to all mankind, male and female, for all time, until Jesus returns, so does this comment to the serpent.

Any consequence to Adam pertains to all men.
Any consequence to Eve (who at that time was only referred to as "the woman" or Adam's "wife") pertains to all women.  Therefore, God's comment to the serpent regarding enmity between him and "the woman" pertains to enmity between all women.

It just seemed highly significant to me, that women would be singled out.  Because, once God said, "and between your seed and her seed," He then covers all mankind who are Believers - both male and female.

I was in the process of teaching to the class that through the remission of our sins, (Matthew 26:28) the shed blood of Jesus remitted us from sin of the Garden and all its consequences.  Not only are we redeemed from the law, but we are also redeemed from all consequences of sin - if we know and acknowledge and repent.

Therefore, I told the student that I believe women will be redeemed before men, in the End-Times from the "curse" of their consequence in the garden.  I told him this was my belief without proof...  yet. He did then show me a blurb from his study bible which said generally the same thing.

Wow. Ok - I just accepted that as confirmation.  Not only to my opinion, but also to all the prophecies and messages I'd heard about women and had received specifically as a woman.

THEN: Here's what God showed me and revealed to me in a vision last night while going to sleep.  Women will most definitely be instrumental in the End-Times and the ushering in of the New Millennium.  Think of it as God restoring "balance to the force" to coin an old Star Wars phrase.

Let me refer to these goings on in terms of "Old Eve" and "New Esthers," just as there was "First Adam" and the "Last Adam" - Jesus.

Old Eve brought about the "demise" of this first Earth. 
New Esthers will bring about the rise of the New Earth - meaning: circumstances in the End Times that will facilitate and give rise to the prophetic necessities just prior to the coming of Christ.

The first man was given the task to replenish and subdue the earth.
Men in the End Times will contribute to the demise and destruction of the earth.  Now, I'm not saying that there's going to be some cataclysmic Armageddon and earth will cease to exist and all mankind will die.  No, but through the persecution and destruction, systems crumbling, wars and rumors of wars, devastation and trials, it may feel like it.  And many may even wish for it.  Men will be the principle driving force in these circumstances.

Women are attributed with introducing death into mankind through Old Eve.
Men will be attributed with the death of mankind and New Esthers will usher in new life - everlasting life; Kingdom living and the Tree of Life.  Where Old Eve was deemed as "the mother of all living", the New Esthers will be resurrected and redeemed as the "mothers of all living - eternally."

Not only will women be instrumental in the End Times, but New Esthers will be ushering in the Glory of God to mankind, where Old Eve had initiated mankind's separation from the Glory of God.

In case you didn't know we ARE in the end of the End Times.  Look around: New Esthers are being raised up all over the world for such a time as this.  Not sure if you can see an Esther or if you will be an Esther?
Here's how to recognize US:

  • Esthers are orphans - either by faith, economic status, education, politics or denomination.
  • Esthers are the least considered, unknown, hidden, masked and undercover.
  • Esthers are chosen ONLY by the King of Kings - a woman promoted by mankind is no Esther
  • Esthers have a supernatural consecration, devotion, spiritual discipline and uncommon lifestyles
  • Esthers stand out as unique, different, odd - though smart, educated, beautiful, and/or talented
  • Esthers will step out in bleak, dark, horrific and hopeless times as a voice and an example
  • Esthers will be rags to riches stories and will quickly rise from least to most, poor to rich
  • Esthers may be isolated, with perhaps only one person/man as her covering or support
  • Esthers may seem to be overnight successes, with circumstances seemingly against them before
  • Esthers will (almost) single-handedly facilitate the deliverance of an entire people, nation or city
  • Esthers will be fierce spiritual warriors, with great enmity, against the powers of the enemy
  • Esthers will walk in the supernatural Glory of God as purposed from the First Dominion
Oh, Daughters of Jerusalem! Daughters of Zion! Arise and be counted!  Be chosen amongst the chosen! And like the women present on the day of Pentecost - be baptized in the Spirit of the living God, and be who He has purposed you to be, with boldness, power, love and truth!

Power, love and peace, ya'll!

Just an addendum: I heard a message by Paula White that was mailed to me after I wrote this message, and she too said the Lord had spoken to her about women and that like Elijah who was told there were 7000 prophets He had kept as a remnant, that there was a remnant of women God would "raise up" for the end times! Wow! My spirit lept and I knew I was part of this remnant. So I asked the Lord about it. He said that just like the prophet he would raise up 7000 individuals to usher in a new Kingdom mentality and power for the end times. 2000 would be men, and 5000 would be women - and at one point in time, all 5000 women will be alive AND working actively for the Kingdom at the same time. Whoo-hoo! God is good!

Destiny's Journey


Some journeys are well traveled roads. Common, familiar and easy. We cruise along the path oblivious to the process as we habitually turn each corner, climb each hill and break each slope. Only to arrive, blink and wonder how we managed without incident or memory of the trip.

This journey - my journey - is not like that. This journey is one of reluctance, hesitance, unsurity, insecurity and yes, a moderate amount of fear.

As I open the window for you to view my progress, you will undoubtedly come to your own conclusion based upon the progress of your own journey - and your observations will be varied.

Some might say that I am making slow but steady progress toward a clear destination. Others may say that I am floundering and wandering aimlessly down a muddy road with too many directions to choose from.

I say my journey has just begun, although it started more than 10 years ago. I say I still have such a long, long way to go, although I am teetering on the precipice of completion. I say the journey has made me weary, leery and weak, although I trudge on with a strength and endurance that is beyond me. I say the path is muddy, with many obstacles, directions and difficulties still yet to come. However, my destination is clear - crazy, unimaginable, overwhelming and clear.

When this path first appeared it was like a hazy, dirt road on a foggy day. I peered at it without knowing what it was or where it was going - then tried to ignore it as inconsequential. When the path persisted I joked as to where it might lead, then still tried to dismiss it as a path not meant for me.

It was years before the view of the path cleared and I was able to see the destination more clearly. It was absurd to think that the reality of where this path could end up would be in a place far more outlandish than even my most absurd imaginings! OK, maybe - just maybe this path ended up in a very good place - but a place still not meant for me. Definitely not me.

Why not me? Who else but me, since I was the only one to see? Please, Dear God, not me! Yes, me. This path was meant for me.

And so I watched it, argued with it, denied it and tried to imagine a life without pursuing it.

Four - no five, has it already been five? Five years ago I accepted it. I stuck out a big toe like testing the cold water of a pool - then yanked my foot back like I so often would. I wrote about it, dreamed about it, and tried it on for size in the privacy of my dressing room of life. And by the way, I still watched it, argued with it, denied it and tried to imagine a life without pursuing it.

Three - sorry, I forgot - Four years ago I made up my mind. I packed my bags, said good bye to the sanity and sanctuary of friends and family who always had thought they understood me, and I took my first hesitant and frightened step.

In these last four years I have walked, sometimes trotted, but never quite run toward a goal I think is crazy. I have stopped, I have even sat down and I have wistfully looked back to a time when I did not know and could not see what was meant for me.

But I will not stop. I packed my bags (all my baggage), and made up my mind. Armed with nothing but 2 scriptures and a great deal of hope, I continue to trudge on driven by the surity that if - just if - I happen to arrive at this awesome, fearsome destination, it will be extraordinary, phenomenal and inconceivably wonderful. This destination...

A destination, a journey to a place that is called destiny. My destiny. Destiny's purpose in life. My God given purpose.

Sometimes while we travel, we see another driver, glance in that direction and never take note or give them another thought. Perhaps that is how you will see me.

Sometimes we see another traveler and something catches our eye. We may watch a moment, muse a moment or even briefly wonder... Then they continue on their own separate way and thoughts of them fade as quickly as they do. Perhaps that will be how you see me.

Other times we get caught in traffic, bunched up with drivers because of fate. And whether we cruise along peacefully or struggle with road rage, we share a community of progress, each with our own destination. Perhaps that will be how you experience me.

And on rare occasion on our own individual roads of life, we travel a path where we encounter another driver - seemingly traveling to the same basic place. At times they follow us and then we follow them. We may take note of who they are and what they drive - possibly even read a licence plate. We'll share a moment or even a long while - silently and separately together, with maybe a glance, a smile or a brief a wave of acknowledgement. Perhaps that will be how you experience me.

I cannot say how long this path will be for me, so whether you glance and move on - never to take notice; or whether you wonder a moment at who I am and where I'm going; or whether you follow a while, smile and wave or better yet, if you decide to stay for the journey, I invite you to come along for the ride.
