Why does the world assign a day each for something or the other, for example, ‘Women’s Day’?
It is man who named his fellow-man, the female, “Woman” (Gen 2:23) even though God had named both the male and female “Man” (Gen 5:2). SINCE THEN NEITHER THE MALE HAS REPENTED NOR THE FEMALE CHOSEN TO LEARN THE TRUTH.
Therefore, man continues to oppose God’s Will at all times. And his female counterpart only too happy to follow suit. While he lords it over her, she is only too happy to submit herself believing his lie that she was brought forth from out of him and for his glory!
It does not make any difference to her that the Lord has Himself restored to her her lost glory by electing her and calling Himself “the Son of man”. And that He has Himself exposed man’s lie once and for all and revealed that He is the Rock out of whom ‘man – whether male or female’ is carved out or hewn (Isa 51:1-2, Matt 26:26-27).
When man transferred the seventh day Sabbath rest (Gen 2:3, Exo 20:8, Deut 5:12) to the first day ‘Sunday’, and pretended to sanctify it by calling it the “Lord’s Day” there seemed nothing more welcoming in his paradise!
It did not seem to matter to anyone concerned that the Sabbath is the Lord’s Day. The Word of God clearly teaches that the Son of God is the Lord of the Sabbath (Matt 12:8) BESIDES ALSO WARNING that it was not for man to do as he wished with Sabbath since man was not made for Sabbath (Mk 2:27-28). FOR SABBATH IS THE LORD’S DAY, also called the Lord’s Day of Rest to symbolize the much awaited eternal Sabbath-rest. And it is the unsurpassed love and grace of God that He made this ‘ETERNAL-REST’ available and known to man in order that all who heed may enter it and dwell with God.
The list of man’s rebellion goes on endlessly even as the man-made division between the male and female is maintained in opposition to God’s Word (Jn 17:21). And whenever they do seem to cut across their self-imposed boundaries, it is to openly, jointly and unabashedly rebel against God!
Therefore, whether it is within the so-called ‘Christendom’ or outside, this man-made division is unanimously hailed and carefully preserved!!
So when the benevolent man pretends to honor the woman by setting apart a day in her honor, and the women smugly and oh-so-foolishly oblivious to the truth bask in it, the truth is that together they only contrive to oppose God. By setting apart a day each for either this or that, whatever becomes their fancy, together they contrive to oppose His Great Revelation of the “Day of the Lord”, the only Day set apart to be honored and looked forward to (Isa 13:6, Ps 110:5, Zech 14, Isa 62:6-7 etc.) for it is on this Sabbath Day that He will come in all His glory and avenge His enemies and establish His Kingdom on earth.
It is this Day that will see the True Celebration of the Freed, of the ransomed of the Lord, and therefore it will be the Day of the Righteous, of saints and children of God, of His daughters and His sons – all whose righteousness will from then on shine like the noon-day sun.
In passing, here are a couple of spiritual reflections for the spiritual man:
1.”Man is so arrogant,
he will dare equal himself to God;
but will not let equal
a fellow man – male or female!”
2.”One has not begun
to pronounce the infallible Gospel,
if one has not begun
to denounce the fallible man.”
