Random Thoughts / Additions

 

There is no such thing as The Christian Womans Head Covering. Head coverings always have and always will be an issue of HUMAN FEMALE MODESTY, no matter whether you are a Jew, Christian, Muslim, or even a real follower of Jesus.

5/20/14

 

If Muslim women are willing to obey an unholy book and cover their head, whats your excuse for disobeying the Bible? If you believe your Bible is better than their Koran, then why are they obeying their book and why are you disobeying yours?

5/20/14

 

 

Biblical women covered their head whenever leaving the home:

Although it was normal for woman to answer the door, as seen in Acts [>> TSK!]

Sarah hid behind the tent wall when she was not prepared to be seen by strangers:

Paul

 

Paul very clearly commands women not to remove their headcovering when praying or prophesying:

 

 

Headcoverings are Biblical: 1Co_11:1-16. Removing a headcovering outside of the home is not Biblical. -- Unless of course, you are (1) a Jewish woman being tried for adultery: Num_5:11 (etc.), or, (2) a woman being punished by having her hair cut off for acting like a harlot: 1Co_11:5-6.

8/26/13; 5/17/14-5/18/14; 11/11/15

 

 

WARNING: A woman who willingly disobeys the Bible and uncovers her head in public, freely confesses to all that she is an adulteress (Num_5:11) and shows that she is unashamed to cause others to commit adultery with her (Mat_5:27-32). Warning, Warning, WARNING! Jezebel is here (Rev_2:20-23)!

WARNING: We are facing an absolutely astounding age of unbridled perversion where women willingly uncover their own head in Public. By doing this they openly confess that they are adulterers (Num_5:11) and that they are unashamed to force others to commit adultery with them.

5/18/14

 

 

(1) Num_5:11 shows us that all God-fearing women automatically put on a headcovering when going outside of the home. (2) Many, many years later Paul commands some former pagans in Corinth that they have to maintain that even during prayer (i.e. no uncovering heads in temples like female prostitutes did). (3) Many, many years later (today) feminism totally robbed the majority of all modern women of their headcoverings and caused them to walk naked-headed in public to their shame and ignorant dishonor

 

1Co_11:6 CAB For if a woman is not covered [κατακαλύπτεται having something coming down and hiding], let her also have her hair cut [this affects her even when not praying]. But if it is a shameful thing for a woman to have her hair cut [applies even when not praying], or to be shaved [applies even when not praying], let her be covered [applies even when not praying].

 

WAKE UP and finally realize what is actually being said in 1Co_11!

 

 

 

 

Dear woman, I plead with you: put your headcovering back on!

 

 

I warn you: the emperor has no clothes!

H: Mr. Overseer, ive been meaning to mention something to you...our generation think they are so wise in thinking that when it gets hot they should wear less clothes to stay cool and so many people think it strange that I wear so much clothes in the summer. And it is also very common that people suffer from sun burn and even skin cancer these days even when they use sun block. And the answer doctors are giving nowadays is wear more clothes when you go outside dont depend on sun block. Ya, the ancient wisdom of God wins we should wear more clothes when we go out, even nature tells us that!

"The first and most effective way to screen excess UV rays from penetrating the skin is a physical barrier. This includes hats, long sleeve shirts, and other articles of clothing that physically shield your skin. Wide, floppy hats are one of the best ways to shield your face from excessive sunlight."

Al: Wow, how exciting! Thanks for sharing =-)

"Monumental evidence confirms the assertion of Scripture that a fair complexion was deemed a high recommendation in the age of the Pharaohs (ride Hengstenberg"s "Egypt and the Books of Moses," p. 200)."

 

Jdt_11:21-23 Brenton There is not such a woman from one end of the earth to the other, both for beauty of face, and wisdom of words. 22 Likewise Holofernes said unto her. God hath done well to send thee before the people, that strength might be in our hands and destruction upon them that lightly regard my lord. 23 And now thou art both beautiful in thy countenance, and witty in thy words: surely if thou do as thou hast spoken thy God shall be my God, and thou shalt dwell in the house of king Nabuchodonosor, and shalt be renowned through the whole earth.

 

Judith_10:7

And when they saw her, that her countenance was altered, and her apparel was changed, they wondered at her beauty very greatly, and said unto her.

 

Judith_10:14

Now when the men heard her words, and beheld her countenance, they wondered greatly at her beauty, and said unto her,

 

Judith_10:19

And they wondered at her beauty, and admired the children of Israel because of her, and every one said to his neighbour, Who would despise this people, that have among them such women? surely it is not good that one man of them be left who being let go might deceive the whole earth.

 

Judith_10:23

And when Judith was come before him and his servants they all marvelled at the beauty of her countenance; and she fell down upon her face, and did reverence unto him: and his servants took her up.

 

Judith_11:21

There is not such a woman from one end of the earth to the other, both for beauty of face, and wisdom of words.

Zion Road

January 26, 2013

In 1892, the personal agenda of an adolescent diarist read: "Resolved, not to talk about myself or feelings. To think before speaking. To work seriously. To be self restrained in conversation and actions. Not let my thoughts wander. To be dignified. Interest myself more in others."

Later in 1982 a girl's New Year's resolution: " I will try to make myself better in anyway I possibly can with the help of my budget and babysitting money. I will lose weight, get new lenses, already got a new haircut, good makeup, new clothes and accessories."

The traditional emphasis on "good works" as opposed to "good looks" meant that lives of young women in the 19th century had a very different orientation from those of girls today. Before World War 1, girls rarely mentioned their bodies in terms of strategies for self improvement or struggles of personal identity. Becoming a better person meant paying less attention to self, giving more assistance to others, and putting more effort into instructive reading or lessons at school. Many parents tried to limit their daughters interests in superficial things such as hairdos, dresses or the size of their waist, because character was considered more important than beauty, both by parents and the community. And character was built on attention to self control, service to others, and belief in God. When girls of the 19th century thought about ways to improve themselves, they almost always focused on their internal character and how it was reflected in outward behavior. In fact, girls who were preoccupied with their looks were likely to be accused of vanity or self-Indulgence.

BBS: BDC Lies about Muslem Women's face veil

7/14/13

 

"First, let's clear away some false problems. The specter of "Eurabia" is a no-show. Studies point to the decline of Muslim birthrates in ways that parallel other populations worldwide. Also, over the centuries Islamic jurists never agreed on the specifics of modest dress for women. Local cultures determined what women wore. The face covering is mostly a recent invention, and, in fact, a rarity, even if numbers seem to be growing. Some sources put the number of women wearing it in all of Europe at 2,000."

http://www.christianitytoday.com/ct/2010/november/16.58.html

7/14/13

\/

"France has by far the highest percentage of Muslims in Europe (8.3 percent, more than double the UK's figure), and its brand of extreme secularism (laןcitי) requires minorities to shed their cultural distinctives to conform to the majority. Perhaps it's no coincidence that in France the burqa ban, passed by Parliament on the eve of Bastille Day, was followed by threats to strip people of their citizenship for crimes like polygamy, female circumcision, and threatening a policeman, and the deportation of hundreds of Roma, or Gypsies. Issues of cultural and national identity are rolled up under the burqa heading."

"ִשְׂמָלה

sלimlāh: A feminine noun meaning clothing, a garment. It refers to a relatively large garment, either an external garment heavy enough to sleep in (Exo_22:27 [26]); or a blanket large enough to cover a person lying on a bed (Gen_9:23). A change of garments could indicate a new beginning or getting ready for travel (Gen_35:2). It refers to clothes in general (Gen_37:34; Deu_22:5)."

בֶּשׁת

bōšeṯ: A feminine noun denoting shame, humiliation, disgrace. The word depicts the feelings of guilt, disgrace, and embarrassment persons experience because of unfortunate acts or words committed (1Sa_20:30; 2Ch_32:21). Humiliation and disgrace was brought on God's people through the exile at the hands of Babylon (Ezr_9:7), but He could also bring shame on one's enemies (Job_8:22). Used with its related verb bפš, it could express deep shame (Isa_42:17); with the word face following, it could express a face of shame (2Ch_32:21; Ezr_9:7; Jer_7:19; Dan_9:7-8) meaning their "own shame." To be clothed with shame is a figurative expression of the psalmist (Psa_35:26; Psa_132:18). The phrase "shame of your youth" (Isa_54:4) refers to Israel's early indiscretions. The biblical authors would sometimes substitute this word for the word ba‛al in a person's name, emphasizing the shame of ever recognizing such a pagan god (2Sa_2:8; Jdg_6:32). In other places and ways, it replaces the word ba‛al that became so closely attached to the gods of Canaan (Jer_3:24; cf. Jer_11:13; Hos_9:10).

Introduction

 

The Bible is extremely more practical than weve ever given it credit for, and one of the most needed teachings of all time, especially in corrupted cultures like perverted America, is a teaching about the Biblical Dress Code. That the Bible would even address such a thing is almost foreign to the minds of those who have so loosely and whimsically treated the Bible for so many years. But here is the reality that lawless grace perverters have always feared and threatened off with charges of legalism. Here is the reality that the Bible actually gives us specifics on how to dress in a way that would please God in True Holiness!

 

God actually cares about us enough to not let us carelessly continue dressing how it seems best in our own culturally blinded eyes. Get ready to be redeemed from sensuality unto a life style of dressing modestly, protecting your fellow brothers and sisters from sin, and being freed up to live in the pleasing honor and greatness that God has called us too.

If you can believe this truth then it can change your life, right down to the way you dress.

 

The Right Attitude

 

Things to Remember

   Pursuing Specific Modesty is better than licensing immorality in the name of not being legalistic*

   God is trying to cloth us both physically for our present needs and spiritually for our eternal needs

   God is very merciful toward our past ignorance when we are humble, but calls us to change once we become aware of His standards.

   Cutting pieces of clothing away from the area that God has clothed is to cut away from the Biblical Dress Code.

   God is not the God of the whims of our culture but of the clear lines and standards of His Word.

*Read these verses: Jud_1:4 (NO licensing evil); Mat_7:13-14 (Gods way is restricted)

 

Jer_6:16

[ Jer_6:16 ]

 

 

The Old Paths

 

Jer_6:16-19 WEB Thus says Yahweh, [the Lord] Stand you in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way; and walk therein, and you shall find rest for your souls: but they said, We will not walk therein. 17 I set watchmen over you, saying, Listen to the sound of the trumpet; but they said, We will not listen. 18 Therefore hear, you nations, and know, congregation, what is among them. 19 Hear, earth: behold, I will bring evil on this people, even the fruit of their thoughts, because they have not listened to my words; and as for my law, they have rejected it.

 

[ 1Pe_3:3-6 ]

Make Yourself Beautiful the Way the Women in the Past Did

1Pe_3:3-6 KJ2000 Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of braiding the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel; 4 But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price. 5 For after this manner in former times the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands: 6 Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord [i.e. Sir or master (κυριον)]: whose daughters you are, as long as you do well, and are not afraid with any terror.

 

What Can we say to This?

In light of this Scripture: Forget all of the paranoias about not violating peoples culture. Instead let us radically over-though all of the unbiblical ways to re-establish a better way which is Biblical and superior to our culture.

 

God Wants to Clothe You

God is Trying to Cloth Us

        You can be most comfortable not being fully covered when part of your heart wants people to lust after you.

        What would happen to your dress if you truly prayed, Lord, may no one be attracted to me today.

        To cover yourself means to pursue honor and to hate participating in lust.

        Being modest physically reflects going after the honor of truth and righteousness that God has called us to Spiritually.

        Consider all the times God said that He wants to cloth His peoples nakedness

 

>> Scrip:

5/26/18

>> SOM: Wouldnt He much rather clothe you, o u of meager faith

not that we desire to be unclothed, but to be clothed

 

2Co_5:2-4 WEB For most assuredly in this we groan, longing to be clothed with our habitation which is from heaven; 3 if so be that being clothed we will not be found naked. 4 For indeed we who are in this tent do groan, being burdened; not that we desire to be unclothed, but that we desire to be clothed, that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life.

 

Rev_19:8-9 EMTV And to her it was granted that she should be dressed in fine linen, bright and pure, for the fine linen is the righteous deeds of the saints. 9 Then he said to me, "Write: 'Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb!' "

 

God commissions us to go and do the same to others physically, (which cloths us spiritually)

 

The Good Samaritan

Luk_10:30-37 EMTV "A certain man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and encountered bandits, who after having stripped him of his clothing and having wounded him, departed, leaving him half dead. 33 But a certain Samaritan, as he traveled 34 And coming to him, he bandaged his wounds, and took care of him. 37 Then Jesus said to him, "Go and do likewise."

 

Jas_2:14-17 KJVCNT What does it profit, my brothers, though a man say he has faith, and have not works? can faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, 16 And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be warmed and filled; notwithstanding you give them not those things which are necessary to the body; what does it profit? 17 Even so faith, if it has not works, is dead, being alone.

 

Mat_25:34-36, 40 WEB 'Come, blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom 35 for I was 36 naked, and you clothed me

40 'Most assuredly I tell you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.'

 

We do these things to be clothed spiritually

 

Dont walk naked in heaven

Rev_3:17-19 WEB Because you say, 'I am rich, and have gotten riches, and have need of nothing;' and don't know that you are the wretched one, miserable, poor, blind, and naked; 18 I counsel you to buy from me gold refined by fire, that you may become rich; and white garments, that you may clothe yourself, and that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and eye salve to anoint your eyes, that you may see. 19 As many as I love, I reprove and chasten. Be zealous therefore, and repent.

Rev_16:15 KJVCNT Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.

 

Cooperate with Modesty!

Immodestly is partial nakedness. Therefore, it is unimaginable when we are naked but get offended if someone dares try to cloth us and exhort us to modesty! So our commission is to cloth and be clothed: first remove the plank then get the speak (Mat_7:1-5), and to do this, we have got to completely repent of and dismiss the dont judge me mentality regarding cloths and modesty.

 

Dont Flaunt what is Shameful

        Throughout the Bible we are always admonished to flee shame and to pursue modesty.

        We are not to flaunt what is supposed to be shameful: Hos_9:10

 

Exo_32:25-26 KJ2000 And when Moses saw that the people were naked; (for Aaron had let them be naked unto their shame among their enemies:) 26 Then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, Who is on the LORD'S side? let him come unto me

 

Isnt it time for the Moses of our day to stand up and demand that we no longer flaunt the shame of our nakedness in the immodesty of our bodies?!

 

1Co_4:14 KJV I write not these things to shame you, but as my beloved sons I warn you.

 

Eph_5:12 KJV For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.

-         Notice that he does not go on to make a joke about the shame, but shows us to avoid shame
