The divine design in the difference between men and women.
Sunday, October 3, 2004
Intimate – Latin intimus = inmost.
You are part of society, and society is not going to be any stronger than its homes, and homes are not going to be any better than the intimacy that we build in these homes.
PSA 11:3 If the foundations are destroyed, What can the righteous do?
The man is infinitely superior to a woman at being a man.
A woman is infinitely superior to a man at being a woman.
God made us different that He might make us one.
Most men are stronger than most women.
The difference between beauty and the beast.
The job that God gave to Adam was two-fold, to dress the garden and to keep the garden, so he was to be the provider and the protector.
“Eve” = life-giver.
God made her physical body to nurture, to love, to be gentle, to be soft, to be cuddly – that is what God made her to do.
Medical science now tells us that 40 % of a man’s body is muscle, on averages – only 25% of the woman’s body is muscle.
Women have a thin layer of cellulite underneath the layer of their skin – that is to keep them warm, because they do not have as much blood in their bodies as men have.
Man has about one and a half gallons of blood – a woman has about four-fifths of a gallon of blood.
A man has almost 50% more blood flowing in his body.
A woman does not have as many capillaries (tiny blood vessels) to deliver that blood to her skin surface.
Men also have a larger lung capacity – that is the reason in athletics men can many times outlast a woman – but women have a better immune system.
A lot of you ladies will not be surprised to learn that men have thicker skulls.
Women, their bones are just more brittle than men; every cell in a woman’s body is different from the cell in man’s body. Women have the XX chromosome, men have XY chromosome.
There ought to be a protective instinct for your wife, or for the ladies, because they are more delicate.
It is her delicacy that makes her so wonderful, but God has given you as the stronger person, as the stronger vessel, to give honor to the woman as unto the weaker vessel.
Men are made for fighting wars, women are not.
Not only beauty and the beast – but the tortoise and the hare.
Men have a lot more energy, but women have a lot more durability.
You have more red blood cells to deliver energy to yourself.
You have a bigger lung capacity that is going to give more oxygen, but she has a better immune system.
The romantic and the mechanic.
Their job is to dress the garden and to keep the garden.
A hard outer shell.
They are the homemaker, they are to love, they are to nurture, they are to be soft, they are to raise the children.
Ladies, you need to understand that he will never have the romantic heart that you want him to have, he is just not wired that way.
He is not turned on by romance, he is turned on visually, he is turned on by her beauty, he is a creature that is attracted by what he sees.
The radar versus the computer.
“A sophisticated form of magnetic resonance imaging on living brains shows women use both hemispheres to solve a certain language problem, men use only one.”
The two hemispheres in your brain – the left hemisphere deals primarily with logic, reasoning, and calculation; the right hemisphere deals with feeling, emotion, sympathy, love, intuition.
Men tend to be more logical and analytical and factual in their thinking. Women are more detail-oriented, they want all of the little details, because she is using both sides of her brain at the same time.
The left side is logical, rational, objective, precise; the right side is the effective domain, feeling subjectivity, sensitivity.
Do not listen to what a woman says, listen to what she means.
Women are lovers, men are achievers.
What is the deepest need of a woman?
What is man’s greatest need?
He wants to be admired.
He wants to be respected.
1 – The foundation.
2 – The flexibility.
Understanding each other is how to have fantastic prosperity in life.
Jesus Christ died on the cross for the cause of intimacy.
Involved in a sexual relationship
Innermost or essential
Showing profound and detailed knowledge & understanding as from long study
Jesus Christ died so we might become intimate with Him, with His Father, with the Holy Spirit, and with one another.
GEN 1:27 God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; make and female He created them.
GEN 2:24 For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh.
The husband and wife express with their bodies that deep longing each of us has for oneness with others.
God wants to get inside our souls, and He wants to let us get inside His soul!
The greatest intimacy possible between two people occurs when a believer acquires the mind of Christ.
The husband and wife becoming one body is symbolic of the members of the church becoming one body in Christ.
ROM 12:4-5 Jesus Christ died so we might become intimate with Him, with His Father, with the Holy Spirit, and with one another.
John 17:23 I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected in unity, so that the world may know that You sent Me
1 Cor 10:17 Since there is one bread, we who are many are one body; for we all partake of the one bread.
The Lords Supper is a celebration of great intimacy.
