This is not at all a book about women in church! It is about the love story of the universe, and you are supposed to be part of it! Jesus, the King, has gone all out in his historic effort to win back a bride that has gone completely AWOL (absent without official leave) and became the Prodigal Bride! Throughout history, both Israel and the traditional Church have forgotten her place in God’s creational order. Many have enjoyed playing “kings and queens” of God on their own so much so, that they have even pushed Christ off his throne and replaced him with religious leaders. They got trapped in headless, man-made religion that refuses to submit and obey – with devastating results.
Jesus said, “If you love me, obey my commands.” This book is seeking to recover a long lost truth, without which no woman, and no man, will ever enter into their legal heritage and authority as part of the Bride of Christ. The moment we respond in love and submit to Jesus like he submitted to his Father, you can almost hear that “click” when another person joins God’s creational order! Obedience in the Kingdom is never theoretical; it is practical, or it is not obedience!
Unlike many modern efforts of women to demonstrate that they can do all that men can do – with shouts of egalitarianism, feminism and gender mainstreaming on their lips – Mercy Simson brings a fresh and prophetic voice to the table. She invites all of us to God’s Kingdom alternative to traditional religion, which is boring to men, tiring to women, and frustrating to God! Even men will get excited when they grasp what it truly means to be a part of that incredible bride that is truthfully called The King’s Woman.
