The Heart Of A Woman

“The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? I the Lord search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.”(Jeremiah 17:9-10 King James Version [KJV]).
Greetings In The Holy Name Of Jesus Yahshuah,
My sisters and brothers, I speak to the issues at-hand that behoove me to beg the difference in how we think—deeply in contemplation about the times we live in. For the delicacy of a woman is more than the scent of a woman. For example, in a crime scene in a court case in a courtroom—-the courthouse completely packed, heard the voice of an unusually tall-gaited woman speak volumes, “He called me ugly! That’s why I said it was rape!” Is this merely fantasy —- a fictional tale of make - believe with fairies and rulers of dark kingdoms? Could the unusually tall-gaited woman be the forebearer of a crimson tale with the devil in the details?
Hereby, we think we heard her say, what we thought we heard her say but did we actually hear what this woman said? In THE BOOK OF THE PROPHET JEREMIAH, we find in Judah’s captivity for sin that the heart lies, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” [17:9, KJV]. Now, we consider that “Jeremiah, one of the four major prophets’ writings covered the 7th Century, B.C. along with Prophets Zephaniah, Nahum, and Habakkuk.
The Jews considered the historical books of Joshua, Judges, Samuel, and Kings as prophetic in purpose thereby placed them in a group called the Former Prophets. However, Jeremiah, one of the four major prophets was placed in a group called, Latter Prophets or Writing Prophets, which was the second part of the prophetic collection, which then included Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and the Book of Twelve, which compiled the Minor Prophets from Hosea to Malachi. By the end of the third century those writings, organized in eight scrolls; four for the Former Prophets and four for the Latter Prophets became recognized as standing with the Law in religious authority.” [Holy Bible, n.d.].
Hence, we look to prophecy to seek the answer to the question, Can a woman give consent for sex? Nowadays, we must consider, consent for sex, inside marriage and outside marriage. We know we tend to politically think that they are all in bed together. This fogginess, in sincerity boggles the mind and leaves us in a much deeper threatening clarity of truth, in God’s love.
In reflection, Jeremiah dealt with the apostasy of his own people as spokesman for God during the decline and fall of the southern kingdom, Judah. Jeremiah had a lot on his hands for not one among the prophets had a more difficult task of standing alone, yet Zephaniah, another seventh century prophet prophesied the Scythian invasion (626 B.C.) on all the nations taught Israel and Judah judgment and salvation, pleading with them to repent for God would dwell in the midst of the righteous remnants; Nahum prophesied the downfall of Nineveh, the capital city of Assyria, in which he according to the meaning of his name tried to comfort his people who had long-lived under the oppression of harassment from Assyria; Habakkuk, a true book of prophecy, constructed differently from the other prophetic writings, in a dialogue which contained the prophet’s complaints (questions) and God’s answers (replies) to the questions. In such a method of writings Habakkuk finds what he seeks: the doorway leading from questioning to affirmation, through which he entered into faith that enabled him to affirm, “I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation. The LORD God is my strength,...”[Habakkuk 3: 19-20, KJV]. “As in water face answereth to face, so the heart of man to man.
Hell and destruction are never full; so the eyes of man are never satisfied. As the fining pot for silver, and the furnace for gold; so is a man to his praise.”[Proverbs 27:19-21 King James Version (KJV)]. Henceforth, in prayer, “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.”[Proverbs 4:23 King James Version (KJV)].
Most importantly, we seek the details, for the devil is in the details to find why a woman full of the passion of Christ Jesus is still not able to give consent to sex, in marriage and out of marriage, in the midst of the overtones in life—- the influences of life that lead astray. With that said, according to Apostle Peter of Jesus Christ, in The First Epistle General Of Peter [3:3-4, KJV] that admonished the people to a life of purity, of godly living, for steadfastness and faithfulness, “Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel;
