KACOU 9 : WOMAN’S MINISTRY
(Preached on Sunday morning, May 4, 2003 in Locodjro, Abidjan - Ivory Coast)
1 I would like to preach on the subject: woman’s ministry. First we notice that God created man on the sixth day and in the last place, and there was no woman. Then He rested on the seventh day, in which you must see years and years. Then seeing that the man was alone, God decided to make him a helpmate. If not, in the original plan, God had not found it necessary. That is why the good reading of Genesis 2:18 is: "And Jehovah Elohim said, It is not [too] good that man should be alone; I will make him a helpmate, his like."
2 So woman was not in the original plan of God but she is a by-product of man. Female dogs, hens and the other females are original creatures of God but it is not so with woman. That is why within each animal species, the mating takes place per period, contrarily to humans. And you will not see a dog mounting on a pregnant female. You see? Which is not the case with humans. Even an elderly woman who is already past menopause still has some sexual relations. You see? I can therefore say with respect that woman is the lowest in the creation.
3 And it is God Himself who has sovereignly placed her under the authority of man. Thus, when she is not under the authority of her father, she is placed under the authority of her husband. Her father or her husband has the right to cancel her vows. See Numbers 30 ... You see! And the Lord Jesus Christ did not come to abolish these things.
4 So we understand, in accordance with Genesis chapter 2, that woman was not there when God was giving the instructions to Adam in the Garden of Eden. There is a reason to that! She was not there when Adam was naming the animals, the birds and others! You see? God did all that so that woman may humbly recognise her place.
5 And speaking of her ministry, if a man has not come on earth to fulfill a mission like Judas Iscariot, he cannot admit a woman in the pulpit; and if you are not a goat, born to be seduced, you cannot sit to listen to a woman preach or lead songs when men are there! Even if she does it well, it is the devil that is behind. Nature itself teaches us that a woman is not carrier of seed. She can therefore not preach and bring eternal Life. And only one boy among a thousand of women makes the "they" feminine change into "they" masculine because of the authority of man.
6 A child of God cannot go against what God has established; even without the Holy Spirit, he will be disturbed. The Bible cannot contradict itself. If Jesus had established a woman apostle or disciple, then he would have not been the Messiah. If Paul allowed woman to preach then Paul would be false. No matter his miracles, they would be miracles of seduction. [Ed: The congregation says: “Amen!”].
7 Woman’s ministry and the marriage of homosexuals are the two biggest abominations of the end of times. And a person who enters into a church where women preach, it is like a person who takes part in a parade of homosexuals. 2000 years ago, mankind did not know that one day, homosexuals were going to parade in Jerusalem. 2000 years ago, mankind did not know that one day a woman, despite her menses, was going to preach before people in some churches. [Ed: The congregation says: “Amen!”].
8 In the entire Old Testament, there was no woman priest. Even in the world, there was no woman minister. It is emancipation that has placed woman there! The feminine for "minister" did not exist. And we know that women came on the scene of the nations through emancipation. The first emancipated woman of the earth was Naamah, a daughter of Cain. And the first emancipated woman in Israel was Jezebel, a foreigner. But in the beginning, it was not so. And we have seen some women fighting for the right to vote in Europe and America but at the beginning in the Old Testament, in Israel for example, women were not counted. And in Africa, a woman cannot be a village chief. Even, in the villages, when men gather, women do not have the right to speak.
9 What God gave to the Jews in writing, He also gave it to the pagans in their heart! Is it you who taught the nations the dowry in the marriage, the first-fruits or to give the name of the father to the first son? And in case of serious sins or of alliances, to make blood sacrifices? It is God who did that! And that is how God also revealed the position of woman to them. Even with no teaching, they know for example that the original sin is a sexual act. With no teaching, a true son of God knows in his heart that sexual act is the sin that Adam and Eve had committed. But when they go to the churches, the devil takes that from them. And it is the same devil that places woman in the pulpit. A church is supposed to be the bride of Christ. And a church which accepts a woman in the pulpit is a lesbian church. And all the women who go in the pulpit have male genitals in their dreams and many confessed that to me.
10 And I do not understand that people who have the Bible in their hand can act this way, placing women in the pulpit to preach or lead the worship songs while men are there. And it even happens that some women are with menses and wear some pads underneath them and come to stand in the pulpit. You who attend such churches, you have no conscience! You are sub-humans, you are descendants of the serpent, you are worse than Catholics and Muslims and you are seeking to evangelize them. If you are not pursuing another goal, you will not go and sit in such a church. Be it preaching or the songs, it is the same thing. Being guilty in part, it is to be guilty in all. [Ed: The congregation says, “Amen!”]. A woman must remain quiet in the church. Paul says that the fact that a woman must not preach in the church is a commandment. Paul says in 1 Corinthians 14:34 “Let your women be silent in the assemblies, for it is not permitted to them to speak; but to be in subjection, as the law also says”. You see? The law says that a woman cannot speak in the assembly. And there is no woman in the priesthood.
11 And in verse 37, speaking of the fact that woman must not speak in the assembly, Paul says that “If any one thinks himself to be a prophet or spiritual, let him recognise the things that I write to you, that it is the Lord’s commandment.” [Ed: The congregation says, “Amen!”]. Paul says that the fact that a woman must not preach in a church, it is a commandment of the Lord. And if you have the Holy Spirit, if you are a son of God, you will not go against a commandment of the Lord.
12 And those evangelical leaders claim to have the Holy Spirit who tells them nothing, and yet the Bible says that when He has come, He will guide you into all the truth! If in the Old Testament, in the dispensation of Father, God did not consecrate a woman priest and if in the form of Son, He did not consecrate a woman apostle, I do not see why He will do it in the form of Holy Spirit as if He is not the same yesterday, today and forever. But know that any spirit that will accept or consecrate a woman for her to preach is not the Spirit of God! And whoever defends it has a demon and has never known the Word or the Spirit of God. [Ed: The congregation says, “Amen!”].
13 Woman can do many things individually or collectively, but these tasks of authority are strictly reserved to men as soon as they are there. What is happening in churches is exactly the image of the emancipation of woman in homes, in public services and in politics, contrarily to the divine order. While there are unemployed fathers of families, there are women who abandon their homes and the education of their children in the hands of television and of a housemaid. The baby will not have the maternal warmth or the breast milk or the maternal education. What will such a child become?
14 The greatest misfortune of humanity was the emancipation of Eve and today again, it is the emancipation of woman and that is now transported to the church.
15 After Salvation, woman was the greatest blessing that God gave to man, but he preferred to worship her and give her his place in order that she may dominate over him. Exactly like money that should serve him has become his god. An advertisement or a newspaper exposing a naked woman has always deserved more considerations. On all the levels, Satan has always pushed woman to covet what God has not given her as if, giving birth, testifying like the Samaritan woman, sweeping the temple, cleaning benches, fasting and praying for the work like Hannah, prophesying or speaking in tongues according to Joel 2:28, is not the work of God. Even Phoebe in Romans 16:1-2 was recognized as being a servant of God for having assisted and provided shelter to some saints. And all the warnings of the Apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians 14:34-38 and 1 Timothy 2:11-15 fell on deaf ears, the sons of the devil have interpreted them in their own way in order to achieve their goals. You see?
16 And in this ministry like in the one of the Lord Jesus-Christ and in any authentic ministry, haven’t we seen some servants of God? Don’t the Sisters Ahou Prisca and Ange Cecile assist me? And when we needed to make contributions to produce the first edition of this book, was it not a sister who had given the most important contribution? And for the second edition, did not a sister put in my hands the amount needed for the entire edition? You see? Because they have good intentions and want to do something, God Himself gives them to do it. You see? Does the Bible not speak of Hannah, Phoebe, Tabitha, Susanna and others? ...
17 Does your Bible say in Proverbs 31 that the woman of worth is a priest? One day you will answer for all this before God! [Ed: The congregation says, “Amen!”].
18 1Timothy 2:15 says that woman will be saved by getting married, by giving birth and by giving a good education to her children. Every woman will answer for the behaviour of her children at the judgment. God calls her to educate her children. And instead of thinking about these things, she covets the pulpit. Brother, this is witchcraft. And Tommy Osborn says that women can even baptise ... Such men, if they do not repent, will not regret to find themselves in hell.
19 And when they read Psalms 68:11, they leave the verse 12 so that the souls that they want to slaughter may not know that it is question of good news of war. Let’s read 1 Samuel 18:6-7: they came out from all the cities ... You say: " O Brother Philippe, with us, they are only song leaders." Brother, it is the same thing! Show me a single passage of the Bible where a woman was established a song leader! Read Chronicles, Ezra and Nehemiah and come back to God! Read 2 Chronicles 35 and you will see that the song leaders were Levites, the sons of Asaph according to the commandment of David, and of Asaph, and of the prophets...
20 And how can a woman lay hands upon someone? Perhaps she has her menses, and if such is the case, even an Angel cannot deliver you. Especially since this can happen even at that moment. Labour pains and menstruation can come at any time, even because of an emotion or of any kind of situation. That is why the women who preach always wear some pads underneath them. A man who seats to listen to a woman preach, he is a sub-human, he is an animal. [Ed; the congregation says, “Amen!”] The Jews rejected the Messiah but a Jew will never allow a woman in the altar! Acknowledge that you do not worship and you do not serve the God of the Jews that Paul served. And a Muslim who leaves Islam to go to an evangelical church or other is a son of devil. [Ed: The congregation says: “Amen!”]. Let’s go back to 1 Corinthians 14:34-38! And you sons and daughters of the devil, listen to what Paul said after the outpouring of the Holy Spirit: "Let your women be silent in the assemblies, for it is not permitted to them to speak; but to be in subjection, as the law also says. But if they wish to learn anything, let them ask their own husbands at home; for it is a shame for a woman to speak in assembly ... If any one thinks himself to be a prophet or spiritual, let him recognise the things that I write to you, that it is the Lord's commandment." [Ed: The congregation says, “Amen!”]. Paul says: "As the law also says!" and he says: "It is the Lord’s commandment"...The fact that a woman must not preach in the church, it is the Lord’s commandment as the law also says! You see?
21 For having accepted the five books of Moses, Muslims do not have any woman imam. And they are women who no longer have menses who go to the mosque and you want to evangelize them? So that your women in menses, having pads underneath them may lay their hands upon them? Sons of Cain! You be cursed! This is why God has put on their heart to hate you, you sons of sin and of perdition.
22 Read Acts 2:16 and you will see if Joel 2:28 is not fulfilled there! ...
23 But what does mankind want to prove to God? What do evangelical churches want to prove to God? That the woman that God minimizes is capable of many things? That woman is as efficient and intelligent as man? That a woman as priest, evangelist, apostle, pastor or song leader could have achieved her mission better than any man? She certainly can! But we, children of God, we oppose that, not by contempt or that she would be incapable in the eyes of men but because God did not give her to do it. [Ed: The congregation says, “Amen!”]. Let’s read 1 Timothy 2:11-12 after the outpouring of the Holy Spirit: "... Let a woman learn in quietness in all subjection; but I do not suffer a woman to teach nor to exercise authority over man, but to be in quietness;" You see? If God has to enter in a church led by a woman, that woman must be thrown out, the pulpit must be thrown out and the church must be washed. Why? Because it is a cursed church. [Ed: The congregation says, “Amen!”]. God has never given to a woman to be a priest and no man of God can give this place to a woman.
24 And we are delighted that the Apostle Paul, Saint Martin, Columban, John Wesley, Martin Luther, William Branham and all the authentic servants that God has sent on the earth have never put a woman in the pulpit. Check throughout history and come and tell me that one man of God put a woman in the pulpit. Even before the 18th century, that never existed in all Christianity, even in the Catholicism! This has been the work of the emancipation and the evangelical churches.
25 And in this 20th century, a devil in a human form, whose name is Tommy Osborn went up to asking women to baptize ... Whoever who has seen Tommy Osborn, has seen Satan. [Ed: The congregation says, “Amen!”]
26 And after these Words, a child of God can only repent if he is not yet possessed by a demon. And I see the whole world possessed by unclean spirits, needing a greater power to deliver them. They have the soul covered with fallen angels. It is no longer them who live, who think or who reason but the demon. Exactly like madmen. They are now prisoners of a power which have mastered them. This is like a coat of cloud covering them. It is not question of trying to explain well but to free them. You cannot reason a madman! You see? They simply have the faith and the will of the demon.
27 Each church has a demon that one can receive simply by believing the theology of that church or by letting its dignitaries lay hands upon him. That is why I forbid you from reading religious books, even if the content is true! The whole world is under the grip of divination, which makes them believe that they are in the truth with some prophecies and some speaking in tongues and some miracles, in order to accomplish what is said in 2 Thessalonians 2: ... according to the working of Satan in all power, signs and wonders of falsehood, in all deceit ... to them that perish, because they have not received the love of the truth that they might be saved. And for this reason God sends them a power of error, that they should believe what is false and that they should be condemned!
28 It is God Himself who according to Matthew 24:24 "raised up" these wandering stars which are Kacou Severin, Morris Cerullo, Tommy Osborn, Cecil Robeck, Reinhard Bonnke, Benny Hinn and others to try the inhabitants of the earth. How can people, churches that have different doctrines unite and that does not mean anything to you? Have you ever seen a flock in which there are sheep, oxen, goats, pigs, and all kinds of different animals ... and you call that love? When Tommy Osborn goes to a country, the Baptists, the Pentecostals, the Methodists, the assemblies of gods ... rejoice!
29 Can a Methodist pastor be pastor in the Foursquare or among the Adventists? Can a Methodist have the holy communion among the Baptists? What are you doing together then? If you all have the Holy Spirit then why these contradictions? Matthew, Mark, Luke and John having the Holy Spirit wrote the four Gospels of the Lord Jesus, did they contradict one another? [Ed: The congregation says “No!”].
30 In the beginning was the Word and the children of God have been created by the Word, this is why they will recognize themselves through this Message which is the promise of God for their time. Even if it is forty people who have believed in the whole world, that is what God has reserved for Himself!
31 In the same way that the Catholics refused the reformation, it is in this way that the Branhamists have refused the midnight Cry to remain in the evening time and join the camp of the harlots. And before the Angel and the Lamb came down in the vision of 1993, there was an eclipse, I clearly saw a black ball in the place of the sun. And it is from the Heaven that they came and the earth was enlightened ... and I can say in a precise way that the evening time ended in 1993. [Ed: The congregation says, “Amen!”].
32 And according to Revelation 4:7, we are in the age of the fourth living creature, the eagle that must rise above every falsehood, every theology, every spirit of seduction. And the Bible says that the eagles in that time will gather around the fresh Word. And wherever the pure Word is, there the elect will be gathered, the children of God according to Matthew 24:28. Amen!
33 Crows, carrion feeders, vultures, birds of prey ... do not fly high and so anything they find suits them. What interests them, it is something that can satisfy them. Whether the baptism in the Name of Jesus Christ or the Trinitarian one, women preachers or song leaders, ... they are fighting over the decay of theology and what the eagles have abandoned.
34 And after April 24th, 1993, in a vision, we were sitting in an examination room for the Advanced level test and the examiner was distributing the test-papers. I was saying in my heart: "But what am I doing here? I do not have a good school level, what am I going to write?” And later, it was said to me: ''The same way that Mary conceived miraculously, without knowing any man, the same way that Moses received in details what happened at the creation, you too, you have received the Words of eternal Life on this April 24, 1993 and it is decreed by God. At the appointed time, you will understand and you will teach what you did not learn in order that whoever believes has eternal Life''. [Ed: The congregation says, “Amen!”]
35 I have never attended a seminary or a bible training, I do not read the books of their Christian bookstores, but I received the knowledge of the Scriptures ... The only problem is that I do not have a good school level but the grace of God will prevail. And I believe that this work comes from God; that is why we can see some students, intellectuals, former church preachers and pastors sitting here... and one day, if God keeps me from the dragon, you will see magistrates of every order sitting among you because there are also some elect among them ... [Ed: The congregation says: “Amen!”].
36 The Bible says in Revelation 12:14 that the two wings of the great eagle will be given to the small eagles to carry them far from the face of the serpent and we see the persecution that begins in verse 15. And at the same time, the devil also reveals himself as the serpent in the same verse, the spirit of divination, and the churches are full of it.
37 Whoever rejects the preaching of Matthew 25:6 can only receive the spirit of divination as holy spirit! And I have presented to you again, Jesus Christ, whom you are crucifying. And what you are doing means: "Let his blood be on us and on our children". There will be an attraction and the whole world will see it.
38 Well. The expression "go to meet him" is not correct because the Cry and the Bridegroom are One. That is why the Cry said "Behold" and not "There is". You must leave the abominations of the earth, that is to say the Catholic, Protestant, evangelical and Branhamist churches and come to Christ. You must reject these fetishes, these crucifixes and all that separates you from God and come to this Message.
39 To this day, we do not have anymore Louis Segond, King James, Ostervald, Semeur, Colombe bible versions, ... we have burned them. Remember that in the second vision, I was standing in the desert and the Word was descending from Heaven, carried on the Clouds of Heaven, which are the holy angels, like in the time of Moses in the desert ... If you are a child of God or if you have the Holy Spirit, you cannot stay far from that because the Bible says that wherever the Word is, there the eagles will be gathered. [Ed: The congregation say, “Amen”]
40 You brethren of Africa, of Asia, of Europe and of America! Maybe you were expecting the Message of Matthew 25:6 in your country, but God did it another way. Remember our Lord Jesus Christ! Being the high priest Melchisedec, the rabbis and the scribes saw that He should come from the tribe of Levi. But He came out of the tribe of Judah. Then, His Message and his works confirmed that it was Him the Messiah. And today, on the whole face of the earth, if you are a child of God, your place, it is here with the prophet of your time, Prophet Kacou Philippe. And he that has ears to hear, let him hear.
