ויאמר יהוה אלהים לא־טוב היות האדם לבדו אעשה־לו עזר כנגדו
And the LORD God said, it is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him and help meet for him. (KJV)
Many Biblical women who spoke the words of courage are to be admired. Women of different ethnicities, positions, roles, statuses are bold and faithful in their spirit-led interventions. In their womanly way, they were mightily used by God. These notable women of the Bible were portrayed as modest, saints, some were scoundrels, a few were queens, but most were portrayed as commoners. All played a key role in the spectacular Bible parables that resulted in a tremendous influence across the nation of Israel and helped shape the eternal history of mankind.
Women of the Bible had, in one way or another, a manipulative influence of the outcome of the historical events of the Bible. Even in a subtle way, barely noticeable, women perform intelligently and softly to achieve their goal. That, as opposed to men who, in most cases, exert force and invoke fights.
Holy Land Man defines “manipulation” in a very positive way: “Getting what you want done while making the other person feel good about it.” In essence, the word “please” is a form of manipulation everyone uses all the time.
On that note, can it be that this is the reason for God creating a woman’s voice to be softer than a man’s voice?
How And Why GOD Created The Female?
The question is very relevant to today’s role of the woman in society and family settings. GOD did not just create the female with distinct external feminine attributes like body and soft voice. GOD wired the female’s body and mind with a different DNA structure of personality which can’t be successfully resisted.
Because of the feeling of inequality, western females should read
The options are:
- GOD felt Adam needed company.
- GOD thought a variety of humankind will be nice.
- GOD thought Adam should be challenged to evolve.
- GOD knew that Adam, the man, will need a different kind of help he can’t get from other men.
- GOD felt the man is not capable of taking care of the offsprings.
- GOD knew that Adam may go wild, or fall, and therefore will forever be in a need of a balancing act.
GOD explained it elegantly in only two Hebrew words עזר כנגדו which are so valid even today and probably be true for a long time. It means HELP AGAINST HIM in English which in King James bible is mistranslated as “help meet.”
(KSV) And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a help meet for him.
(original Bible) ויאמר יהוה אלהים לא־טוב היות האדם לבדו אעשה־לו עזר כנגדו
As much as the words seem to be in contradiction, “help against him” is similar to a tree that needs supporting sticks against its stem, or else the tree will grow crooked or break. In human terms, the woman is the “checks and balances” in the relationship. The woman is the one the man has to convince in order to proceed with action. The woman is the voice of reason, and when needed she is the opposite voice of inspiration. In short, the woman is the man’s balancing act, the woman is to go against man as to represent reality. In a way, GOD foresaw the “masculine” gender as “big boys” needing support… against them.
That conclusion of HLM is supported by the code2GOD. The numerical code value for the seven Hebrew letters עזר כנגדו is 360 representing the woman’s ability to foresee all around, as opposed to the man who is assumed to see from a narrower point of view.
Eve was a person who was similar to Adam, who corresponded to him as his equal counterpart. A woman that is much more than a mere auxiliary or assistant for Adam.
“And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.” (Genesis 2:20).
The impression that it is “not good” for Adam to be alone, is the essence of a balancing act or “helping not to fall” or “without such crucial support, the man will fall” or “stand up in a positive way.”
Women’s Role in the Old Testament
Minister Don Juravin who has studied the entirety of the Old Testament in Hebrew believes that there were many stories in the Bible about women, but little do we recognize them.
“Who shall find a valiant woman? far, and from the uttermost coasts is the price of her… She will render him good, and not evil all the days of her life.” (Proverbs 31:10,12)
The women in the Old Testament have rich stories that are vital to the ongoing revelation of God’s relationship to the people. We find women as mothers, wives, queens and slaves, prophets and warriors, powerful women and victims, women whose stories offer us courage and insight. The lives of such well-known women as Sarah, Deborah, Ruth, Eve, and Naomi, but also those of lesser-known women such as Michal, Tamar, Jezebel, and many more. Women who were also created in the image of God and that portray God in the image of a woman.
Minister Don Karl Juravin studied the ancient characteristics of women and found out they are all primarily described with the adjective “beautiful” in the Old Testament. Women are rarely described by their abilities other than their ability to bear children.
“Isaac prayed to the LORD on behalf of his wife, because she was childless. The LORD answered his prayer, and his wife Rebekah became pregnant.” (Genesis 25:21)
Holy Land Man believes that it is important that men marry and procreate, and in those times, they didn’t have the technology to know who is to be blamed for childlessness.
“He settles the childless woman in her home as a happy mother of children. Praise the LORD.” (Psalm 113:9)
A mother is as strong when it comes to facing hard situations. They are confident in who they are and what they believe, and in their example of fearlessness, they encourage others to be courageous and make a difference.
“She is clothed with strength and dignity and she laughs without fear of the future.” (Proverbs 31:25)
“God is within her, she will not fall.” (Psalm 46:5)
Part 1/8 How And Why GOD Created The Woman?
Note that all general claims and observations by Holy Land Man refer to the vast majority of 70-90% and never to the 100% and so the assertion that “women are…” never refers to 100% but to 70-90%.
