The Proverbs 31 Woman – What she is not

Before we begin to consider and study who the Proverbs 31 woman, let us be careful to say what Proverbs 31 does not tell us. Proverbs 31 has mentioned so many things and has left some things untouched- because does things are not needed in the definition of a Proverbs 31 woman. Interestingly, there is no other place where these things are mentioned because they are not criteria for measuring a good woman. I am mentioning this thing because most girls think that is what makes them good.

Sex! Proverbs 31 does not talk about sex. Sex is not a factor that determines if one is a good girl. Of course the Proverbs 31 woman will have sex because she is a wife and a mother, but that doesn’t count in what makes her up. Will live in a world where sex has been over emphasised with great pressure on females, I want you to know that sex is not a way of showing good act, especially when you are not married. So, if you are always trying to prove to someone that you are good by giving them sex (or you are thinking of doing it), please stop it.

Before I leave the sex thing, let me also say that the Proverbs 31 woman is not defined by big breasts or buttocks. That is a shallow way of thinking. I have seen so many ladies trying to adjust the size of their breast and buttocks because they want to look good and presentable (you have certainly seen one too). Go and read Proverbs 31 and you will find out that body physique is not a factor in being good and if you want to change your body physique because you lack confidence, go and read the introduction.

God bless you.

CEO MohFoods- Miss Oladepo Olajumoke

Glory to God. Getting to interview this amazing woman of God was a privilege for us. We are highly honoured and greatly blessed. As you read through our interview session with her, we pray you catch the fire. Amen.


Can we meet you?

I’m Oladepo Olajumoke.

What is the meaning of Olajumoke? Most people seem not to know what it means.

Means there is enough wealth to go round.

Wow! Cool. How did you receive salvation?

That was in Jss 3,my English teacher then preached to the whole class during one of our classes and I gave my life to Christ.

How did you feel when you gave your life to Christ?

I felt new,like a brand new being with a fresh start.

And how has the journey been so far?

It has been awesome over the years,its been from one level of growth to another.

Is there anything peculiar about a female belonging to Christ?

Of course yes…salvation helps a female just as much as male to not miss it in life.

Can you tell us practical ways how giving your life to Jesus has helped you as a female?

It has really helped me to be God-centred and not self-centred. I don’t do things because people are doing them, I give reference to God because I want Him to be glorified in every decision I make. And it has really turned out well for me by His grace.

Glory to God! So, what are you doing at the moment?

For God or what I am into?

Let’s start with for God.

I minister in songs. I am a member of the youth choir of my church and also a member of a christian musical organization called the Symphonizers.

Which part do you sing?

I sing alto.

Nice. So many females love to sing, they want to join the choir. Can you advice them?

Yes, it is good if that is your calling but if not, I’ll advise that you discover the calling of God upon your life and only then can you be fulfilled.

Thank you ma. What are you into at the moment?

I’m waiting to continue my education at the Nigerian Law School and also job hunting in the process of waiting.

We hear you are a caterer. How true is this?

Really? You are well informed. Yes,I am a caterer

How did you start?

I actually enjoy cooking and always want to try out new recipes,so early last year I started nurturing the idea of starting my own catering business and I started officially in August last year.

Wonderful. What is the name of your catering business?

Mohfoods.

Hmmm….Nice. What is your favorite Scripture verse?

That would be 1John 4:4.

What would you say to girls that have not given their life to Jesus?

Salvation is the best thing that could ever happen to a person. When you have Jesus, you have all that you need. Jesus loves you,consider Him today and see your life turn around for the best.

Hmmm…It’s nice having to share from your experience and wisdom. Do you have any words for CGN?

Yes. I pray for more grace for this body of Christ. Everything needed for the success of this mission is supplied in Jesus name.

Amen. We have come to the end of the interview. Thank you ma fof allowing this moment.

Am glad to be a part of this. Thanks for the opportunity.

Proverbs 31 Woman- Guys Need To Know Her

I have noticed that when the Proverbs 31 woman is mentioned, guys tend to ignore the topic with the mind of ‘it is a girl thing’. This is not the way it should be. The Proverbs 31 was actually a prophetic revelation received by a guy- King Lemuel from his mother. It means the Proverbs 31 woman topic was and is actually intended for the guys.

There are many dangers of bypassing the knowing of this woman, ignoring her has no advantage. To start with, not being interested in the Proverbs 31 woman is ignoring the word of God and will of God. This topic is found in the Scriptures for crying out loud. If you know all of the whole Bible from Genesis to Revelation and you don’t know about Proverbs 31(which I don’t think is possible), then your knowledge of God’s word is not complete. So carefully pick up your Bible now and open to Proverbs 31 and read.

When you don’t know this woman, you won’t recognize the difference between a good lady and a bad one. I can say it bodly that not all good girls meet up to the standard of the Proverbs 31 woman. So, that lady you are dying for can actually know how to cook and not know how to pray. She can actually be very good sincerely, but there might be a little fox that is spoiling the vine.

With the understanding of the Proverbs 31 woman. You can understand which lady to move with and the one to ignore. I can tell you bodly again that if you really understand the Proverbs 31 woman, there are certain ladies in your life that you will run away from (don’t just runaway, pray for them. And if the lady is your fiance, please see your pastor).

So many guys keep asking, ‘how do I recognize a wife material? Is it when she is 20 yards, or 36 yards?’. Bros come, the material you need is what is in Proverbs 31. I am tired of guys complaining that some girls in their life is bad or something.

The understanding of this woman will ensure you a smooth way to relate with ladies- your sister, mum, fiance, friends, neighbours etc. You will know how to respect them and where to encourage and build them up. What would have become of Isaac if only he did not get that woman? He might have traded away a great covenant like Samson who could not tell who a Proverbs 31 woman is. The story of Amnon could have been better if he had respected that Proverbs 31 woman. Mordecai trained Esther to be that Proverbs 31 woman and it really paid him.

Maybe Samson and Amnon had no Proverbs 31 during their days. You have it now. Guy, please get to know her.

God bless you.

Proverbs 31 Woman- Introduction

We need to look at what a woman is and who a woman is. What a woman is, is totally different from who a woman is.

Now, what is a woman? A woman is a helper. I would want us to understand that this role of a woman can actually be played by any other thing. That is why in Genesis 2:19-20 God brought all the animals before Adam to give name to them, but he did not find a helper. God gave Adam the liberty to choose a partner for himself and so Adam gave the animals their identity. It was not like Adam gave lion the name lion, or goat the name goat. What Adam did was give them their identity (role), so Adam gave lion the king identity, gave tortoise the cunny Identity etc., but Adam did not find any of the animals to give the helper identity.

God had to cause Adam to sleep and out of Adam he produced another being. Adam saw that being, recognized the being as a helper and called her woman- gave her the identity of woman. If Adam had not liked what he saw, he could have given that being another identity. As far as God is concerned, a woman is the best helper that man can ever get. The what is a woman explains her identity.

Who is a woman? After Adam had recognized her as his helper, he went ahead to give a confession (Genesis 2:23). Adam called her woman because she was taken from man. And that is who she was- an extension of man. Therefore she was everything God had ever commanded and said about Adam. If you take a bowl of water out of the well, you will still have the well water in the bowl; if the well water is bitter, the water in the bowl will be bitter.

Every thing connected to the man as written in Genesis 1:26-30 was also connected to the woman. The woman therefore is made in God’s image and likeness, she has dominion too.

The what and the who of the woman produced result later in Genesis 3. I am of the opinion that the woman obeyed the serpent because of the fact that she knows and thinks she has dominion- even over the tree at the middle of the garden. And at that time, she thought she was doing the man a favor- helping him. She ate the fruit and a great event happened. At the end of the event, the man called the woman Eve which means life.

Every woman is a portal for life both physically and spiritually. Physically, it is through the woman that new human beings are produced. Spiritually, life flows through her and that is why Christ married the Church, the Church being the bride so that His life will flow through the Church to the world.

A woman is an helper created in the Image and likeness of God to have dominion and be a producer of life. If you are a lady and you have not recognized yourself as a helper- always keeping to yourself and being lazy or you don’t know you are created in God’s image and likeness- trying to change your looks and allowing circumstances/people take advantage of you or you and not giving life to your environment- always negative and unproductive, then you are not a woman. Rethink and align your life.

God bless you.

Christian Living Series- Christian Caucus

Have you noticed that Christians are always in different groups? You may belong to one and that is wrong for your Christian life.

Now, by group we don’t mean ministries and units in Churches. We are referring to the segregations we have made amongst ourselves by reason of doctrines, academic qualifications, background, wealth and others. And so we see Christians belonging to some certain set of people who are rich but do not relate with the poor.

Jesus does not preach that we should divide ourselves for the criticism of ourselves. In fact, Jesus prayed that we may be one. There are so many ungodly factions that we have among ourselves and if you belong to any, God is calling you to come out of them and love all.

The most common type of segregation among Christians are the people who think they are too holy and so they don’t relate with others who seem unholy. That is why once they see a Christian fall, they are quick to castigate and rebuke; even when they should actually show love. Are you in such group, where you think you are too holy for others? Of course, you are holy, but holiness is not denying others because of their shortcomings. The Sister in your fellowship got pregnant and so she does not belong to the group of Christians you deal with, she is now unholy. Or the Christian who lives in the next door is crippled and so you start ignoring him.

Even Jesus was with all types of people all His life. There was no preference as to whom He related. God is calling you brethren to stop the discrimination you have brought into Christianity. There is really nothing like rich Christian, poor Christian, holy Christian, unholy Christian, sick Christian etc. We are all Christians.

Let’s God’s love grow in you that you may see everyone as your brothers and sisters.

ACTION POINTS

1. Try and figure out how you have rejected to relate with other Christians.

2. For what reason did you reject them.

3. Make a decision to come out of the mindset of belonging to a group of Christians.

PRAYER

1. Lord, let your love grow in me.

2. Help me to be disciplined in my relations with other people (Christian and non Christians).
