Re: End Time Army of Women Preachers Psalms 68:11

“And he began to speak boldly in the synagogue: whom when Aquila and Priscilla had heard, they took him unto them, and expounded unto him the way of God more perfectly... And when he was disposed to pass into Achaia, the brethren wrote, exhorting the disciples to receive him...For he mightily convinced the Jews, and that publicly, showing by the Scriptures that Yahshua was the Messiah” (Acts 18:26-28)...This short passage in Acts 18 is very telling, especially with respect to the subject of women in the churches. ..Here is the apostle Paul... He meets a man and wife, whom he soon discovers work together, sort of as a traveling evangelistic team...First they were in Rome, then in other parts of Italy, then in Corinth... Now they are in Ephesus, and we will soon find out that their travels in helping to preach the gospel continued as well...Some people seem to feel that Paul tends to put a greater emphasis on Priscilla than he does on Aquila... This is deduced from the fact that her name is listed first more often than her husband’s...And, quite frankly, this is most often the meaning of such an order of names in the Bible... In this case, however, there is really no need for us to know which of the two individuals was considered the more prominent... The point is that both the man and the woman were equally engaged in serving the early churches... They dedicated their lives to this task... And this was not a situation where Aquila did all the preaching and teaching, while Priscilla served them tea and biscuits!.. She was as much a teacher of the truth as was her husband!.. And, in the case of Apollos, it is expressly stated that both of them took part in expounding the Scriptures to this great man of God...
