Are women very precious or not? When you say yes, think about history. Did women play a special role in history, enabling men to fulfill their role to go in God’s direction? Have you ever thought that you as a woman should be doing that? ~I am helping my husband or fiancée so that he can help the progress of the dispensation. I will continue to do so in the future.” Did you think that way when you answered, “Yes, women are precious”?
Whom do you resemble? You women have two eyes; they resemble very much the eyes of your own mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, all the way up in your ancestry to God. God is also feminine. Your eyes represent your origins or ancestors, and all of womankind In the future, your eyes will continue to be represented in your offspring. Do you sometimes think, I will revolutionize my eyes”? Perhaps you do something to your eyes to make them look different, like using eye shadow. But actually that doesn’t revolutionize your eyes. It’s only temporary. Four or five hours later, the eye shadow washes off and you’re back to the same situation. Nevertheless, your eyes are very precious because they represent history, all women, and the future of mankind.
Whom do women take after? The mother of mothers. We cannot think about history and mankind without women. They simply would not continue. History would never have existed without women. Today is very precious, of course, but the past is also precious, and the future is even more precious.
Just imagine: which would be more of a crisis in the world – a huge war between the two superpowers, or something that causes a decline in the number of women on the earth, so they become fewer and fewer, to the point where there is only one woman left? Which is a greater crisis-world war, or women diminishing? Think about how horrible it would be if, while the women were diminishing, men continued to exist in the same numbers. Just imagine for a moment – a man’s world without women. There could be no bigger crisis imaginable than men without women. If only a few women were left, what will happen to the men? How precious women would become. There are plenty of women now, so men think, “Well, there is one for me, no matter what.” But what if there were only one woman? Even if a man had all the wealth and power of America and the world, could he trade it for that one woman? No, because her value is even greater than that.
Have you ever stopped to think that you are so precious and great that you could not even be exchanged for all of America? The same goes for women without men. Just imagine that no men exist-just women. What kind of a world would that be? Men, like women, represent history. They represent the past and they are existing today for the future.
