DRESSING IN THE WISDOM (THE FEAR) OF THE LORD
Over time and in the last few days I have received many questions regarding dressing. And so I will share the two questions asked and the Response that will essentially cover this issue.
Questions By The First Person:
“Praise God, Man Of God, I Have Been Disturbed Lately As To How I Should Dress As A Lady, I Wear Both Trousers And Skirts, I Wear Ornaments Like Earrings And I Weave My Hair, Some People Say It Is A Sin, Please Servant Of God Tell Me Whether It Is A Sin, I Will Do Exactly As You Say, I’m Waiting For Your Response.”
Questions By The Second Person:
“I Thank God For You Sir, Your Teachings Have Been A Source Of Encouragement And Has Helped Me In My Spiritual Walk With God, I Know God Is At Work In Your Life, Please I Have A Question Bothering Me, What Is Your View On The Wearing Of Earrings By Women, Is It A Sin? If It Is, What Bible References Clearly States It? Thanks.”
“And Then Another Question Is Concerning Our Hair As Women, Some Say The Use Of Weave On Or Attachment On Our Hair Is A Sin (I Don’t Know If U Agree With That) If It Is A Sin Then What Do We Do To Our Hair As Women, Does It Mean We Should Have Our Hair Cut Or Start Looking Unkempt, Still Confused On That As Well.”
I HAVE COMBINED AND SYNCHRONIZED THE RESPONSE AS BELOW:
I greet you in The Mighty name of The LORD Jesus Christ.
Our body is The temple of The Holy Spirit and so we should keep it pure and undefiled. The foreign items that we at times bring to our body e.g. earrings, make-ups etc. are things that we add to our body to enhance it and to increase our body appeal to the outsiders i.e. other people (those who pass by us). The LORD God Almighty made us in His image and we should each be contended with how The LORD created (made) us lest we grieve the Holy Spirit by bringing items that defile The Body. And this is stated in the book of 1st Corinthians 6:19-20 which states: “Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.”
And so, the foreign items that we at times bring to our body e.g. earrings, make ups, etc, are things that we add to our body to enhance it and to increase our body appeal to the outsiders i.e. other people (those who pass by us). The devil normally takes advantage of this to tell human beings that we need to enhance our appearance by bringing onto it foreign articles like earrings, make ups, Bling bling, chains, necklaces etc. And some of these are actually from agents of satan who put satanic powers and charms to lure men or women to sexual immorality i.e. some of the necklaces, earrings, make-ups, bling bling that people buy are actually ordained by satan and agents of satan to lure people to sexual immorality. And when one wears tight skirts, mini-skirts, very open tops and tight trousers, they in most cases expose their anatomy; and those who pass by them lust after them as they look at the exposed anatomy and exposed breasts and chests. And this is because the devil also knows the Bible verse that states in Mathew 5:27-29 as follows: “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. If your right eye causes you to stumble, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell.”
And so we never know whether when we wear necklaces, earrings, make-ups etc; they may have been induced by some satanic charms and origin that makes people to lust after us when we wear them. Some of the earrings, necklaces, bling bling, make ups etc have actually come from devil worshipers. An example of this is found in the book of Genesis 35:2-5 which states: “So Jacob said to his household and to all who were with him, “Get rid of the foreign gods you have with you, and purify yourselves and change your clothes. Then come, let us go up to Bethel, where I will build an altar to God, who answered me in the day of my distress and who has been with me wherever I have gone.” So they gave Jacob all the foreign gods they had and the rings in their ears, and Jacob buried them under the oak at Shechem. Then they set out, and the terror of God fell on the towns all around them so that no one pursued them.”
You will also note that in the past, earrings have been used to make idols; and infact even today some of the earrings being sold are actually idols. And this is well stated in the book of Exodus 32:2-4 which states: “Aaron answered them, “Take off the gold earrings that your wives, your sons and your daughters are wearing, and bring them to me.” So all the people took off their earrings and brought them to Aaron. He took what they handed him and made it into an idol cast in the shape of a calf, fashioning it with a tool. Then they said, “These are your gods, Israel, who brought you up out of Egypt.”
To be on the safe side: just keep your body clean and put on a neat dress that covers your body well. You are worthy just like that: You don’t need an earring to reaffirm that: after all, the one who created you created you in His own image. If He wanted you to have an earring, probably He would have put one on you when creating you but He did not; He actually looked at you including your ear when He created you and said that you are good.
It is very very important not to put attachments and foreign hair (Weave) on ones body. A woman should have her natural hair; if she likes long hair then she should allow it to grow; but should not put the foreign hair, attachments, weaves, hair colouration etc. The body is the temple of The Holy Spirit; whoever put strange hair/weave on the temple of The LORD is grieving The Holy Spirit. Some of the weaves and the foreign hair and attachments are actually from demonic forces that use it to defile the body and spiritual condition of a person. To be on the safe side; have nothing to do with weaves, hair coloration, attachments etc. Just have your natural hair; if you want it to be plaited then that’s fine; if you want it to grow long, then that’s fine.
The book of 1st Corinthians 11:15 states as follows: “but that if a woman has long hair, it is her glory? For long hair is given to her as a covering.”
In conclusion, I urge you to wear descent clothes that cover your body well. Avoid trousers to be on the safe side. Just wear a skirt that covers you well in the fear of The LORD. Wear a descent blouse or dress that covers you well in the fear of The LORD. Just avoid the earrings and the necklaces: your ear is wonderfully made the way it is without needing you to put earrings. You are actually very descent and full of wisdom when you wear and dress in the fear of The LORD. And Him who created you will definitely be very proud of you; aim at pleasing Him not the lustful eyes of the passers by. And His name is The LORD God Almighty, The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; The creater of Heaven and the earth; The creater of all including the visible and the invisible.
And do not follow the crowd or cave-into peer pressure or follow the so called: “Fashion”, most of which comes straight from the pit of Hell. Remember Mathew 7:13-14 which states: “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.” This means that a time may come when you now have to stand alone for the glory of The LORD. Why gain the whole world through popularity and loose your soul in Hell: Mathew 16:26 “What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul?”
PREPARE THE WAY IN ABSOLUTE REPENTANCE, RIGHTEOUSNESS, HOLINESS, TRUTH AND COMPLETE SURRENDER TO THE LORD JESUS CHRIST (YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH). TIME IS ABSOLUTELY OVER; THE MESSIAH JESUS CHRIST IS IMMINENTLY COMING TO PICK HIS BRIDE!!!
I acknowledge today that you are LORD and savior of all mankind,
and today I have recognized my shortfall,
I repent and turn away from all sin.
Please cover me with your precious blood,
and establish your word in my life,
that I may be found in righteousness and holiness
and write my name in your book of life
and baptize me with the power of the Holy Spirit
in the mighty name of Jesus Christ.
Shalom!!! Shalom!!! Shalom!!!
