I like the way we do some things but I don’t understand why I’m not allowed to come to church just because I’m on my menstrual cycle.
Why can I not come to church on my menstrual cycle? Is this not an old tradition the founder would have changed by now?
It was not the law of the founder; it was the law of God Himself. It was the law that went through even in Jesus’ time. God is re-enacting the same law in Celestial Church. He said “consecrate a place for me wherein I will be with them.” Your body is the temple of the Lord, but when menstruating, it is enough for the woman to stay at home and pray to God. God told the Jews to separate every woman who has a regular flow of blood for seven days (Leviticus 15:19).
The truth is, this flow of blood was the blood of the curse from when the woman sinned in Eden. God said I will greatly multiply your conception and your child bearing so the multiplication of the conception is every month (Genesis 3:16). That is the blood of the curse and a remembrance of your sin – a remembrance of what happened in Eden.
Every woman has an egg for conception. But because of what happened in Eden He multiplies it so it becomes a monthly thing. He said I will multiply your sorrow and your conception, so it is out of place. It is not for blessing so it must be separated from His house. Don’t bring the remembrance of the curse on you into His presence.
The flow of blood stops during the nine months of pregnancy, so the pain that should have come in those nine months will come on the day of giving birth. God will not deny His word. People say “but Jesus died for us and reversed the curse”. When Jesus died, people who labour and give birth do they no longer have pain? Because He died has the monthly cycle stopped? Don’t because Jesus died take away the truth. Let the truth be the truth.
