Eve: Why God Created Her To Be Adam’s Helpmate
Who was Eve and why was she created?
It is written in Genesis 2:19-22,
“And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof. And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him. And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.”
Which one of these animals is not like the other?
The lesson Adam learned from naming the animals was that all the animals had helpmates for them (male and female) but he did not. So we read,
“And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.”
God creates Adam’s helpmate
Eve was taken out of Adam and made specifically to fulfill the role of a suitable helpmate for him. God created Eve to fill that which Adam lacked. It is my belief that God, the designer and Lord of all creation, knew exactly what He was doing when He created Adam and Eve. Therefore we men and women should not presume to deviate from His original design. Unfortunately, some women push to be other than what God made them to be. When women leave their first estate the sin like the fallen angels did. As It is written,
“And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.”
In fact, our ungodly society makes women feel badly if they simply want to be a “helpmate” to their husband as God originally intended.
God places Eve under Adam’s protection
God sets up society around great men referred to as patriarchs. Our Father ordained a male dominated society in which women are honored and cared for by strong, godly men. Great and noble women, fulfilled traditional roles of “helpmates” treating their men as we see Sara doing in the following scripture,
” 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 Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement.”
1 Peter 3:5,6,
God chooses this pattern, not because He wishes to oppress the daughters of Eve, but because He wants men to protected women as the weaker vessels. As it is written,
“Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honor unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.”
Adam was not deceived
Women are, in general, physically weaker than men. In addition, perhaps due to their emotional natures, they are more vulnerable to deception. It is written,
“And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.”
1 Timothy 2:14
Therefore, God, in His wisdom said,
“Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.”
The two shall become one
For many women, the thought of being under the authority of her husband and having him rule over her is repugnant. Many women want to be treated as equals. However it is not a question of men and women being equal, but a reality that they are different. Men and women compliment and complete each other precisely because they are not the same. We see this illustrated in the act of marriage. When lovers are intimate it is not a competition but a surrender of their individual uniqueness for their lovers pleasure. In giving of each others uniqueness both receive pleasure. The man completes the woman and the woman compliments the man. Without the God given attributes of the other, men and women are incomplete. Together male and female become one and therefore whole.
When a man covers and woman in this way, it helps her reach her full potential in God. What does this mean? In it’s most elemental sense a woman needs to unite with her man become the help meet that God designed her to be. As a woman submits her body in the act of marriage she also submits her heart and soul to him too. This most intimate of submission forms the basis of all other submission in her marriage. It is willing submission that flows out of her love and from her heart.
Eve, don’t leave your first estate
Misunderstanding their roles as helpmates, some women leave, like the fallen angels, their fist estate. Instead of submission some women seek to dominate their husbands and rule their man’s household. This is matriarchy. The spirit of matriarch diametrically opposes God, who is patriarchal. The rise of the matriarchal spirit, or the rule of women, is a manifestation of Mystery Babylon. It is written,
“So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.”
We live in the age of the harlot spirit
This harlot spirit seeks to rise above and dominate everything around it without regard to God’s laws or commandments. Many times women buy into the disrespect of men that the media bombards them with. Husbands, fearful to displease a harlot spirit within their mates, abdicate their God given position within their marriages and their homes. Men sometimes become weak and irresolute, like Ahab, allowing women to become domineering matriarchs that no longer respecting any earthly or even heavenly authority.
God opposes matriarchy
God is patriarchal in nature. God made man in His image a likeness. Adam broke that image through sin. As men return to God’s original plan, they naturally become patriarchal. Therefore, men must seek must challenge the spirit of matriarchy that seeks to subvert their manhood and families.
Our society is almost unrecognizable from the society that existed at the turn of the 19th century. We have switched from a patriarchal society to a matriarchal society in less than a century. The daughters of Eve pay a terrible price for leaving their first estate. Countless unwed mothers, fatherless children, millions of abortions, rampant venereal disease, plague our society. All these woes are linked to men and women switching their rolls contrary to God’s plan.
Islam’s struggle against the Great Satan
The war between Christianity and Islam, near it’s core, is a struggle between matriarchy and patriarchy. Islam is still overwhelming patriarchal and it sees the matriarchy of the west to be threat that it must protect itself against. While we say that Islam oppresses women they reply that western Christianity allows adultery, fornication, same sex marriages, and abortion. Is it any wonder that those who follow Mohammed reject the west as the Great Satan? We say we are a Christian nation but we bear little resemblance to first centenary followers of Christ.
Go where he goes, do what he does, support him
A woman’s place in God’s natural order of things is to come under a man’s covering and support him. In fact, most men cannot achieve what God desires without a woman’s love. This is the true power of a woman. A Christian woman’s first and best calling is to be a helpmate to her man. Her second best calling is to be a loving mother and raise their children in the fear and admonition of the Lord. Here is a truth,
“A godly woman becomes part her mans world and joins what he is doing and not the other way around.”
If a woman feels she must take the lead spiritually, many times, she is out of God’s will. God created Eve to submit to the will of her man. To deny this is to say to God, “you made a mistake when you create me this way”. The relationship of submission between the woman and her is the central marriage. Without such submission many marriages fail. God created women to gladly and submissively take her place under her man be and be by his side. Children issuing out of their union of love is secondary in importance to their primary relationship. Patriarchal marriages are always couple based.
We live in a Topsy Turvy world
Some may be horrified and object to the precepts that I state in this article. However, when women reject patriarchy as ungodly, they call light darkness and darkness light.
Being a patriarch does not mean you rule with an iron fist or don’t do dishes. Rather, it is a position of authority that a wife willing gives to her husband. Godly women submit out of a desire to be in correct relationship to God. Whereas, men count Abraham as the father of their faith, let women count Sara as the mother of their submission. The daughters of Eve can learn much from the example of respect Sara gave to the father of many nations.
God is patriarchal
Finally, God refers to Himself as our heavenly Father because He is patriarchal. It is rebellion for women to despise patriarchal authority because in doing so they despise the very nature of God. Satan is still lying to women to entice them to leave their first estate. Fallen Lucifer tries to make them feel as though they need more than what God freely gave them. However, the true power of a woman comes not through domination but through submission. Daughters of Eve, who become truly feminine, can easily turn the heads of even the most powerful men.
