"A Wise-Woman"

  Women have God-given power-of-influence. Some women know what needs to be done[Prov.31] and do it; quite often with joy, and in peace. They are a Blessing to themselves, their family, and their community.
  There are many Women-of-Wisdom throughout the Word; this particular one comes from 2Sam.20:16, with the context beginning in 2Sam.20:1-22. Her name is not mentioned, possibly because it is not important: her actions, were very important!
  King David had under-gone several civil uprisings. One from his own son - Absalom,  and now Sheba, the son of Bichri: King David issued a death-warrant for Sheba.
The Kings men tracked Sheba to a town called Abel, and surrounded the town. The men cast up a bank against this fortified town, and begin to batter the wall, to knock it down.
  Then cried "A Wise-Woman" = ethically, prudent, skillful. From inside the city, " Hear, hear = listen, understand, yield to, summons; X2 - Desperate. A KEY - I pray you, unto Joab = Joab, Jehovah is Father: Also the name of the David's nephew; a General in David's army. Come near here, that I may speak with thee.
  " Art though Joab? " "Hear the words of thine handmaid."  "In old-times-saying; they shall surely ask council at Abel." I am one of them that are peaceable and faithful in the House-of-Israel: thou seek to destroy a city and a mother in Israel." General Joab said to this Wise-Woman, " deliver Sheba unto us." The Wise-Woman said " Behold, his head shall be thrown to thee over the wall." Then the Woman went unto all the people in Her-Wisdom. And they cut off the head of Sheba, and cast it over the wall: and so they ended the matter.



  1. This Wise-Woman did not call 911, or get the city-council/politicians involved. She was a Wise-Woman that employed Wisdom from our LORD. She saved her city by Wisdom: modern city can learn much from this. Don't allow the wicked to hold up in your cities. Our LORD spoke this of old, in Part 1 of the Holy-Bible.

  2. This Wise-Woman took immediate action.
    She had to have known the threat inside the city with Sheba; and the jeopardy of going outside the city to approach General Joab. She invoked the LORD, and His-Word!
    Never ever turn away from wickedness: it must be dealt with.

  3. Our LORD took 50% of Eve's power of authority away from her, and replaced it with 100% Power of influence. This Wise-Woman demonstrates how it is applied!
    Women; stop struggling for power; walk in your Anointing.
