It is difficult, nowadays, to differentiate believers in Christ from unbelievers, because of their outward adorning, which in majority of cases, is carnal, worldly and ungodly. Holy women (holy men) of God are expected to obey what the Spirit of God says concerning outward adorning, written in 1 TIMOTHY 2:9, and I quote, “In like manner also that women adorn themselves in moderate apparel, with shame-facedness and sobriety; not with broided hair or gold or pearls or costly array.”
But the shamefacedness has been sacrificed on the altar of the fashion of the world. They have become promiscuous in their dressing by conforming to the fashion of the world that will soon pass away- 1 CORINTHIANS 7:31.
The pride of life which the daughters of Zion exhibited in their outward dressing incurred the anger of God upon them- ISAIAH 3:16-24 and I quote “Moreover, the Lord saith, because the daughters of Zion are haughty, and walk with stretched forth necks and wanton eyes, walking and mincing as they go and making a tinkling with their feet.” Therefore the Lord will smite with a scab the crown of the head of the daughters of Zion, and the Lord will discover their secret parts. God said, instead of the smell of their strong perfumes, He would make them stink, and instead of their well- decorated and extravagant hair-do, He (God) will give them baldness; and instead of skin-toned beauty, He would give them burning.
Majority of believers in Christ, err when they say, that it doesn’t matter what they wear, and according to them, Christianity is of the heart, but this heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked. No one can know it- JEREMIAH 17:9. And, out of this heart proceed lasciviousness (especially in dressing), pride, foolishness, et cetera-MARK 7:21-23. Believers in Christ are commanded to glorify God in their body and in their spirit, because they are God’s, for they have been bought with a price- 1 CORINTHIANS 6:20. And they shall give account of what they have done to the body- 2 CORINTHIANS 5:10.
Majority of female believers in Christ, put on things that pertain unto men, while the men put on things that pertain unto women, in their rebellion to the commandment of God, in DEUTERONOMY 22:5. Some of our men, who are effeminate, put on chains round about their necks and even adorn their bodies with strong perfumes like harlots- PROVERBS 7:10, 17. These effeminate cannot inherit the kingdom of God- 1 CORINTHIANS 6:9.
God is also particular about Christian women covering their heads, while praying or prophesying, and Christian men, uncovering their heads, while praying or prophesying. If the woman is not covered, then, let her be shorn (shaven). But if it is a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, then she must cover her head. “Judge in yourselves: Is it comely that a woman pray unto God uncovered?”- 1 CORINTHIANS 11:13. “Does not even nature itself teach you that if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him?” – 1 CORINTHIANS 11:14. Nature should therefore teach us that if a man wears skirt and blouse, or gown, or wrapper and buba, it is a shame unto him, and even madness! Nature should also teach us that if a woman wears trousers, it is a shame unto her. The Spirit of God also warns that no strange god be found in a Christian man/woman – PSALM 81:9a. In their journey to Bethel, Jacob said unto his household, and to all that were with him, that they should put away the strange gods that were among them – GENESIS 35:2. AND THE EARRINGS IN THEIR EARS WERE SOME OF THE STRANGE “gods” that they PUT AWAY- GENESIS 35:4.
