(1Cor. 11:3)

This is a vital information for any person who wants to be in heaven. Here the apostle informs that God is the head of all and of Christ (cp. 1Cor. 15:27-28; Eph. 4:6; Jn. 14:28); and that Christ is the head of the man (cp. Eph. 1:22; 4:15; 5:23; Col. 1:18); and that the man is the head of the woman.


One of the sources of church crisis and proliferation is the issue of people wanting to be heads, not to be headed. Such people that have such tendencies should realize that they are far from being humble.


They should learn from Christ who recognised and accepted the headship of God the Father over Him (Jn. 14:28; cp. 1Cor. 15:27-28).  They should learn (before it is too late) that there is hierarchy in heaven – God is head of all (1Cor. 15:27-28), followed by Christ who is the head of the angels and all other inhabitants of heaven and of the church (1Cor. 27-28; Jn. 1:51; Eph. 1:22; In fact); that the angels have a head (1Thess. 4:16; Jude 9); that the apostles (not every believer) will sit with Christ on twelve thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel during the eternal reign of Christ Jesus (Matt. 19:28).


Women in particular should learn that the man is the head of the duo (of man and woman), though both were made to be of mutual comfort and blessing, not one a slave and the other a tyrant (cp. 1Cor. 11:3; Gen. 2:18,21-23; 1Pet. 3:7).  In fact, all must accept and keep to the rank God has chosen for them in the church and in this life generally.
