Who will save the daughters of God!
Lamentations 4:6 -
The punishment of the iniquity of the daughter of my people Is greater than the punishment of the sin of Sodom, Which was overthrown in a moment, With no hand to help her!
In the Bible the promise to enter Heaven is only for sons of God. Jesus Christ came as Son of Man and is called Son of God, even the Angels are called Sons of God. Before the fallen angels sinned they too were called sons of God and later called devils.
God is referred to as Father even though the ancient Hebrew word El-Shaddai means Strong Breasted One which refers to God and both our Father and Mother, a source of our Protector and Provider for our needs and affections. Even though God is our Mother still using that word for God is like blasphemy.
From all this we see; is the Kingdom of God sex discriminating?
To understand this we need to understand the female gender.
When God created man and woman in spirit they were both created equal and in the same gender - male. But when woman was created unlike man she was created from the rib bone of man. This specific bone was taken not because of its close proximity to the heart (by the way according to the Bible the human heart does not symbolize love but righteousness and it is the kidney which symbolizes love).
Every part (from organ, to cell to structure) of our being is made with understanding and therefore it is written man is made in image of God. Spiritually the bone symbolizes nature and the bone marrow the spirit. Like the bones give shape to the body so also a beings nature gives shape to its spiritual body.
Life is in the blood and is generated from the marrow. Therefore life of the body indirectly comes from the spirit life which God gave us. Our body dies but our spirit continues to live. Jesusí bones were not allowed to be broken because His Nature was perfect.
The rib bone is one of the few bones which do not have marrow. Even though man and woman in spirit are made in the image of God but in the physical woman is made in the nature of man. This will explain marriage and the relation of Christ and His Church which is symbolically called bride (woman) since it has to do with man.
There are very few differences between the physical body of man and woman and by understanding them we learn how man should be ministered.
Similar to physical gender there exist the spiritual gender. The redeemed man has a male gender (son) and the unredeemed man female (daughter). Those who are doers of the Word are given the male gender and those who know but do not are the female.
Jesus said those who hear His Father's Word are his brother, sister and mother in the respective order. Jesus did not say they will be His father.
The spiritual gender does not remain fix and is according to the spiritual state of a person. So a man can spiritually be a daughter and a woman a son. As the person grows from one stage to another he or she starts with daughter to son. Son of Zion is the highest spiritual stage for man. It is at this stage they are called sons of God / princes of God / Israel. Daughter of Egypt is the lowest or starter stage. That is why you will not find a scripture asking us to pray for Israel but for the people in other spiritual stages.
In today's message the Lord is telling us who can save the daughters from His hand. The punishment as stated in today's message as the Lord states is even worse than which was imparted to Sodom (which was destroyed by burning volcanic lava). It does not necessarily mean a person who is at the lowest spiritual state will be punished but it means daughters irrespective of whichever stage they are will be punished. That means even if we are spiritually very knowledgeable, blessed with many spiritual gifts doing great work for the Lord yet not doers of the Word (sons) we will be punished very severely. So the danger of punishment is as much at the lowest stage as it is at the higher stage. All is matters on are we doing what the Lord speaks unto us or opens our minds to His knowledge.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord, You created man and woman in your image. You made them male and female so that they can understand your Kingdom and after being redeemed they become your sons. Lord, as we surrender to your Spirit and to your Word, make sons of us having authority and inheritors of your Kingdom...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.

18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed to us-ward.
