38. WHO MAY PROPHESY?
(January 1908, 2)
It is the privilege of all the members of the bride of Christ to prophesy,
which means testify or preach. . . .
Before Pentecost, the woman could only go into the “court of the women”
and not into the inner court. The anointing oil was never poured on a wom-
ans head but only on the heads of kings, prophets and priests. But when our
Lord poured out Pentecost, He brought all those faithful women with the
other disciples into the upper room, and God baptized them all in the same
room and made no diVerence. All the women received the anointed oil of the
Holy Ghost and were able to preach the same as the men.
The woman is the weaker vessel and represents the tenderness of Christ,
while the man represents the ﬁrmness of Christ. They both were co-workers
. . . in the Gospel. (I. Cor. 11:8,9.) No woman that has the Spirit of Jesus
wants to usurp authority over the man. The more God uses you in the Spirit,
the more . . . meek and tender you are and . . . ﬁlled with the . . . Holy Spirit.
It is contrary to the Scriptures that woman should not have her part in
the salvation work to which God has called her. We have no right to lay a
straw in her way, but to . . . encourage the woman in her work, and God will
honor and bless us as never before. It is the same Holy Spirit in the woman
as in the man.
