Just as man was designed as the initiator, the woman has been designed to be the responder. She has the most amazing possibility to receive. That is the reason why many women are more spiritual than men and have a deeper heart for God than men, because they are designed to respond and they use their design. Man is too busy initiating and he doesn’t learn his need to respond. How often, because of man’s will and ego, he refuses to have God, through the Cross, be an end to his force of initiation. He never becomes a vessel of God unto honor until redemption has annihilated his capacity of initiation so that Jesus Christ can be his Head in the initiation of a borrowed life.
A woman who usurps authority has a male spirit and, therefore, she lives in contrast of her intended creation, opposite her design, and very unnatural. She does not complement because she is living the very opposite of her creative purpose. Many women have male spirits by dictating and usurping authority and that is why the Babylonian system is called the Great Whore. Also, there are many, many men who have female spirits. They go to get along and are passive, not energetic or enthusiastic. They have been duped into the soul-power performance that strips them of their possibilities to be a faith-initiator with the confidence of God. The power of God acts with the flow of divine life when we live in the order of God’s originally intended design-looking unto Jesus.
