Colossians 3:18

Do You Have To Marry To Prove A Point? (3)

As the champion of the family, every member follows his direction and steps. The wife is the first follower of the man. As the primary source of the Woman she must follow his instructions, or else, the word of God will not say, “Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord” (Colossians 3:18). Hupotassō (hoop-ot-as’-so) is the Greek for ‘submit yourselves’ and it means: ‘to arrange under, to subordinate; to subject, put in subjection.’ What is the Bible saying? The wife should package herself and place it under her husband. This is why I am always advising ladies never to marry someone to whom they cannot submit their intellectualism and persons. Do not, for this simple reason, marry a fool; he will rule you in stupidity throughout your marital life. Colossians 3:18 says, “…as it is fit in the Lord,” meaning: your husband cannot tell you, the wife, not to pray, praise or worship God. But he is scripturally, as the head of the family, authorized to tell you to stop your career! That family home is God’s house, the Creator dwells with you, therefore, any disobedience as far as the LORD is concerned, is an affront to the Author of the marriage institution. When the wife decides to have control of the family, she is wickedly changing the divine order of the institution; she is not different from Jezebel. Jezebel was both a princess and a priestess of Baal worship. Her father was Ethbaal, or Ithobal, king of Sidon and priest of Astarte. Ethbaal had murdered Phelles his predecessor. You cannot marry outside your Christian faith. Read More


Ephesians 5:21, “Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.” This Pauline verse teaches humility among children of God. This submission finds itself in the locational sphere of reverence to the word of God. It is not borne out of guileful pleasing art. Colossians 3:18 “Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.” Two things, I have always maintained, are the solutions to a successful marriage. The husband must love his wife; and the wife is scripturally expected to submit to her husband. ‘Submit’ in Greek is hupotasso (hï-po-tas'-sō): ‘1. to subordinate. 2. (reflexively) to obey.’ This Greek word comes from two roots of hupo (hï-po') prep. ‘1. under. 2. (of place, genitive) beneath;’ and tasso (tas'-sō): ‘to arrange in an orderly manner.’ When you put hupotasso together what it says to the wife is: ‘package yourself very well and place it under your husband.’ The husband is the head of the family. The Greek for ‘head’ is kephale (ke-fa-lee'), meaning ‘the head (as the part most readily taken hold of); origin and source.’Read More
