If we forget for a moment the physicality of ‘male’ and ‘female’ and look again at Genesis but with the idea of the female (Chavah – the lifegiver) as the representative of the law of the spirit of life, and the male Adam (Earth) as the epitome of the law of sin and death) then we can begin a new phase of understanding, for I am a product of both these things and, as Paul tells us, they are at war in my members.
So the real battle of the sexes is within me!
Only Adam was thrown out of Eden, but as usual, Satan has obfuscated it all into an external physical thing and away from the spiritual realities.
So the life part of me still has the right of entry into the garden, but the death (male) part of me does not.
The more I become spiritually female (lifegiving) the more of me that can be immersed in Yah, and the less of me is subject to the male law of sin and death.
But as Paul explains, Yahushua is the trump card in that he can mask that part of me that prevents me from coming before Yah, He removed the handles by which Satan can grip me and accuse me of ‘death-giving’.
The battle of the sexes, the physical differences between male and female are mostly irrelevant, Females do tend to be more spiritually ‘female’ but will on the whole follow their fathers and husbands. For this reason the scriptures are mostly aimed at physical males, they are the worst case.
Many women come to a relationship with Yah of their own volition because their spiritually ‘female’ side is also dominant. In men, it is the reverse and they have to be dragged kicking and screaming to a place of humility where they can begin to learn to be spiritual lifegivers as well.
We have a tendency to physicalise the spiritual ramifications of sex, so that we miss the spiritual significance. I must learn that I too, was deceived by the serpent and that it was nobody’s fault but my own. For a female this is hard, but for a male it is even more difficult, male leadership instinct demands that I demean Yah, and lock Him away in a cupboard so that I can let my own god of sin and death dominate,
The female side of me wants to give, it wants to give life, the male side of me wants to blame, to exploit, to kill in order to demonstrate MY godship, MY superiority, and Satan sits back and laughs.
My female side is compatible with Yah’s creation, it is within the limits of Torah. My male side is not compatible with Yah’s creation and because of it I am excluded.
Romans 8 :-
Consequently, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. 2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and death. 3 For what was impossible for the law, in that it was weak through the flesh, God did. By[a] sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and concerning sin, he condemned sin in the flesh, 4 in order that the requirement of the law would be fulfilled in us, who do not live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. 5 For those who are living according to the flesh are intent on the things of the flesh, but those who are living according to the Spirit are intent on the things of the Spirit. 6 For the mindset of the flesh is death, but the mindset of the Spirit is life and peace, 7 because the mindset of the flesh is enmity toward God, for it is not subjected to the law of God, for it is not able to do so, 8 and those who are in the flesh are not able to please God.
