Woman was taken from Man – via his rib, so, she would naturally be under him because she was pro-created second in line; but, she is not a second rate citizen. At Romans 16:1 Phoebe (a woman) is spoken of as being a Minister, even in the olden Bible days. “I commend to you our sister Phoebe, who is a servant of the church in Cenchreae.” Other versions of the Bible interpret this term in a technical sense: deacon, or deaconess, or minister.
And at Acts 21:9, four daughters are spoken of as women that prophesied. This man had four virgin daughters who prophesied.
Also, at Acts 2:17-18 it denotes that women will be prophesying in these last days we all are living in. And it will be in the last days, says God, that I will pour out My Spirit on all humanity; then your sons and your daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, and your old men will dream dreams. I will even pour out My Spirit on My male and female slaves in those days, and they will prophesy.
And the correctly translated Scripture at Psalms 68:11 calls you women a “large army.” “The Lord gave the command; a great company of women brought the good news.”
Psalms 148:12-13 reveals that all ages of people – including children praise the Creator’s name. To praise the Creator’s name is to MINISTER. Young men as well as young women, old and young together. Let them praise the name of the LORD, for His name alone is exalted. His majesty covers heaven and earth.
Then at Titus 2:3 it even specifies aged women, saying let them be teachers of what is good. So, what is good? The Kingdom Message of Salvation. The Promise of a better life. In the same way, older women are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers, not addicted to much wine. “[They are] to teach what is good,”
Philippians 4:3 not only gives the women credit for fighting in this Spiritual War by giving the Message out side by side with men, but it also goes on to say they earned having their names included in the Book Of Life. Yes, I also ask you, true partner, to help these women who have contended for the gospel at my side, along with Clement and the rest of my co-workers whose names are in the book of life.
And what about Children? Earlier they were mentioned in Scripture. If they know the Truth, they are permitted to Minister as well.
1 Samuel 2:18 The boy Samuel served in the LORD’s presence and wore a linen ephod..
Matthew 21:15-16 When the chief priests and the scribes saw the wonders that He did and the children in the temple complex cheering, “Hosanna to the Son of David!” they were indignant 16 and said to Him, “Do You hear what these [children] are saying?” “Yes,” Jesus told them. “Have you never read: You have prepared praise from the mouths of children and nursing infants?”
