The word submission is something many are struggling with especially when it comes to the thing we call marriage.
For some time the Lord has speaking and continue to speak to His church about what it truly mean to be the Bride. As we hear many arguments between men and women leaders about submission, I can truly say many have yet to accept what is according to scripture as the man being head not the woman. Therefore, this has left a power struggle, especially as women continue to climb the corporate ladder and function in the sphere of influence.
Yes, God has equipped women to lead in her rightful capacity and leadership role, however, when it come to her being a wife, it is scriptural that she submit to her own husband. This is a representation of how the Bride (Church) is suppose to submit to Christ as Head. Once we understand this valuable revelation in which Paul taught the mystery of, we will begin to see the Church and marriages rule and make a major impact in the earth.
God never called the Bride to lead the Head, but the Head to lead the Bride. This is the same within a marriage. In order for a marriage to be fruitful, husbands and wives must know their role and seek to fulfill it according to scripture. Christ is leading His Bride into a greater place of glory, however it will take us knowing our roles and submitting to the Lordship of Jesus Christ as Bride.
We cannot reign with Christ unless we submit to Christ as HEAD.
*Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her. Ephesians 5:25
*For the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ also is the head of the church, He Himself being the Savior of the body.
*This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church. Ephesians 5:32
