Daughter's of the KING

God's Word says that His daughters are PILLARS. I was very curious as to what that meant so I did some digging and here is what I came up with.
PILLAR: a person regarded as reliably providing essential support for something. Upright post, mainstay, leading light, worthy, backbone, ROCK, upholder, anchor, centerpiece, cornerstone, chief support, foundation, champion, tower of strength.

PSALM 144:12

May our DAUGHTERS be like graceful pillars
carved to beautify a palace. (NLT)

When our sons shall be as plants grown large in their youth and our DAUGHTERS as sculptured corner pillars hewn like those of a palace.(AMP)

Make our sons in their prime like sturdy oak trees, Our DAUGHTERS as shapely and bright as fields of wildflowers. (MSG)

(NIV) Then our sons in their youth
will be like well-nurtured plants,
and our DAUGHTERS will be like pillars
carved to adorn a palace.

Women are not weak, they carry one of Jesus' most beautiful qualities: humility and submission. Not to be mistaken for is Jesus.

Eve was also called Adam's Ezer Kenegdo(Hebrew)-life sustainer, life-support, sustainer alongside him. The Word says that women are the man's Ezer Kenegdo and as God's daughters we are pillars. We are the daughter's of the King of KINGS...therefore we are princesses! "The King is enthralled with your beauty; honor Him, for He is your will seek her favor. All glorious is the princess within her chamber." Psalm 45:11-13
EVE is Adam's EZER KENEGDO (Article by Freedman)

The case that begins to build is that we can be sure that `ezer means "strength" or "power" whenever it is used in parallelism with words for majesty or other words for power such as `oz or `uzzo. In fact, the presence of two names for one king, Azariah and Uzziah, both referring to God's strength, makes it abundantly clear that the root `ezermeaning "strength" was known in Hebrew.

Therefore, could we conclude that Genesis 2:18 be translated as "I will make a power [or strength] corresponding to man." Freedman even suggests on the basis of later Hebrew that the second word in the Hebrew expression found in this verse should be rendered equal to him. If so, then God makes for the man a woman fully his equal and fully his match. In this way, the man's loneliness will be assuaged.

The same line of reasoning occurs with the apostle Paul, who urged in 1 Corinthians 11:10, "For this reason, a woman must have power [or authority] on her head [that is to say, invested in her]."

This line of reasoning, which stresses full equality, is continued in Genesis 2:23 where Adam says of Eve, "This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called ‘woman,’ for she was taken out of man." The idiomatic sense of this phrase "bone of my bones" is a "very close relative" to "one of us" or in effect "our equal."

The woman was never meant to be an assistant or "helpmate" to the man. The word “mate” slipped into English since it was so close to the Old English word “meet,” which means "fit to" or "corresponding to" the man which comes from the phrase that likely means "equal to."

What God had intended, then, was to make a "power" or "strength" for the man who would in every way "correspond to him" or even "be his equal."

  1. I just want to say that i came across your blog when i was researching the article by David Freedman. What a spontaneous colourful blog you have. I would appreciate your prayer for The Dignity Campaign in Africa. Many beautiful daughters of the King are living in undignified circumstances and would benefit from your prayers. Thank you and God bless!
