The message that I have for today may surprise some of you, but if you are truly teachable, then you will meditate on it and search the Scriptures to see if it lines up! We are reading Psalm 68 today and I have always rejoiced at this particular verse! Verse 11:

11 The Lord gives the word [of power]; the women who bear and publish [the news] are a great host.

I want to share this from a few other translations:

Ps 68:11 The Lord gives the word; the women who announce the news are a great host: English Standard Version

Ps 68:12 Adonai gives the command; the women with the good news are a mighty army. Complete Jewish Bible

Ps 68:11 The Lord doth give the saying, The female proclaimers [are] a numerous host. Young's Literal Translation

Ps 68:11 The Lord gives the command; The women who proclaim the good tidings are a great host: New American Standard (Updated)

Ps 68:11 The Lord gave the command; a great company of women brought the good news:  Holman Christian Standard Bible

The KJV leaves out 'women'. WHY? Look at the phrase "great was the company" from the Strong's Concordance. It is the Hebrew word "tseba'ah, which means: (feminine) a mass of persons. This word is a feminine word, meaning that the mass of persons were FEMALE! If you pay attention to the Word of God, and NOT the traditions of men, then you will realize that the God of the Bible has ALWAYS used women to accomplish His will upon the earth! From JUDGES like Deborah, to harlots like Rahab, to foreigners like Ruth, to queens like Esther, to widows like the one who fed the prophet, to virgins like Mary, to those women who supported the ministry of Jesus and to Mary, the sister of Martha, who chose the BETTER part! The only being who REALLY has a problem with women is satan! HE HATES WOMEN! That's why he tried to deceive Eve, and why women have been abused, misused, abandoned, denied rights, treated as 2nd class (or less), beaten, raped, sold, attacked, and treated as property over the years. God has a very different view of HIS women! The very first person to proclaim "He is RISEN" was a woman! Women were in the upper room, and all through the Book of Acts, women were found preaching, teaching and ministering the TRUTH! Galatians 3:28 says this (KJV and AMP):

28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise. KJV

28 There is [now no distinction] neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is not male and female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 And if you belong to Christ [are in Him Who is Abraham's Seed], then you are Abraham's offspring and [spiritual] heirs according to promise.  AMP

If you are a man, then I hope that this enlightens you to the importance that the LORD our GOD puts on BOTH men and women who belong to HIM! If you are a woman, I hope that this encourage you to FINALLY step out into the plans and purposes that the LORD your GOD has for YOU! Be bold, be brave, be encouraged that: "Faithful is He who calls you, and He also will bring it to pass." (1 Thessalonians 5:24). AMEN! Let's go for it, ladies! AND gentlemen! Time to get busy about Kingdom of God business and keep looking up! Here is Hillsong UNITED with "Oceans - Where Feet May Fail":

Shalom in Him!
