Submitted To Someone Else's Husband

I think it only apropos to delve into sexual submission because that one issue is the link to many others. Notice Paul writes in Ephesians 5:22, Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. Why would he say ‘to your own husbands’? In order to understand this verse, you must first go back to Genesis 3:16 which says, “To the woman [God] said…your desire shall be for your husband, and he shall rule over you.”

God spoke that to Eve - the mother of all humans; so when He made this declaration, that went for every woman. With that in mind, look at Genesis 4:17, “Then Lamech took for himself two wives: the name of one was Adah, and the name of the second was Zillah.”
