Godly Attire and Adornment -- Seven Divine Revelations

The Lord has taken many people to heaven and hell, and given them an end-time message for the Church.  I would like to highlight seven of them, whom the Lord specifically spoke to about godly apparel and adornment.  Some of these people were violating God’s standards in this area, and were shocked to find out the Truth.

I want to be very clear that what I have written below are merely excerpts from their revelations.  In order to properly judge or discern each revelation, I strongly recommend you listen to each one in its entirety.  I also want to say that these revelations were not exclusively about godly attire and adornment.  Many other things are addressed in their revelations, too.  Here are the seven revelations for you to listen to and prayerfully discern for yourself:

James Agboola from Nigeria 
A former Muslim, named James Agboola, had a revelation of hell, in which the Lord spoke to him about many things and gave him warnings for the church. One of the things the Lord warned about was adorning our bodies with artificial things. Here is his testimony about that from the video.

And the voice now begin to speak to me in great pain. Jesus Christ speak to me in sadness. He was not happy. He speak to me with a sorrowful heart...He said, “James, do you hear the cry of people in hell?” I said, “Yes, sir.” He said, “Many of them are those who called themselves so-called ‘Christians’ like you. While on earth they claimed holiness and righteousness. But because of ‘little, little, little, little things, small, small, small things’, ‘it doesn’t matter.’”

He said, “That is why many of them are in hell. And I hear them crying that now, they believe. They want to change. But it’s too late. It is too late.” He said, “James, when I created man, I created man in my own image. And my glory was upon him.” He said, “But my enemy, the devil, now added a lot of packaging, packaging of the glory I gave man, packaging of earring, necklace, attachments, all of them. God says, “My eye cannot behold it once anything artificial...”



He said, “James, when I created women, did I put hole in their ear?” I said, “No.” He said, “How come I now saw them with hole in their ears?” He said, “James, when I created man, every part of their body that is supposed to have hole, did I not put hole there?” I said, “Yes.”  He said, “How come they now begin to put hole by themselves?” He said, “And once anything artificial has been added, no matter what it is, my face cannot look at them. My face cannot behold them.”

See James Agboola Revelation of Heaven and Hell.

Adelaida de Carrillo from Bolivia
This woman was a nominal Christian up until the Lord took her to heaven and hell.  In heaven she was given a very long skirt to wear.  Her legs were totally covered.  In hell she said she saw a woman of God who was there for dying her gray hair black.  Adelaida says the Lord is against the women of God who wear make-up on their face.  This is at 38:36 in the video. Jesus said, “I’m only pleased with the natural look on my saints. You don’t need make-up to look beautiful to anyone. Those things don’t please Me.  If anyone loves the world, he is an enemy of God.” She urged her listeners to tell others to stop using make-up. She said to ask the Lord, “What are the things I’m doing that don’t please you.  The Lord is totally against women that use jewelry."

And the Lord did not just warn her about godly attire and adornment.  He also warned about matters of the heart and tongue. She learned that gossip can make you lose you salvation. She said that talking about your pastors and neighbors can make you lose your salvation. She urged her listeners to, "Tell people they need to give their life to Jesus."  You really should watch the entire video to hear it directly from her as she told it.

Margaret O Amure from Nigeria

Sister Margaret O. Amure
As I have written about in a separate blog, Margaret is the pastor at God Divine Favour Bible Church in Nigeria.  When she had this experience, she was being judged for wearing makeup, immodest clothes, and jewelry.  She warned women not to wear jewelry, lipstick, or any makeup, or immodest clothes like trousers. She said, “If you do, then you will be judged by the same Scriptures I was judged by.”  And she cited several like 1 Pet 3:1-6 (also see 1 Tim 2:9-10).

Although I have not yet personally spoken to sister Marguerite herself, I made a good faith effort to do so.  I managed to speak briefly with her son, who says that she really did die, and she is a good mother.  I also spoke with a pastor who knows her well, named Dr. Stephen Tepu Aikhoje, whom she acknowledges with gratitude at the end of her video testimony, as one of the people who helped her.  Dr. Aikhoje said that she was the State Director for the Police Chaplaincy, and he sat under her leadership as such, while they were chaplains together.  He went to her home and her church several times to pray with her, as her case was getting worse before she died.  He said, "She is a trustworthy leader, very disciplined, and I know her to be truthful."  In fact, he distributes CDs of her testimony.   Therefore, I feel confident in posting this testimony without any reservations.

 

Olga from Russia
She was a backslidden woman who returned to church, and sang in the choir, but continued to wear makeup and pants and jewelry.  She was taken to the edge of hell to see where she was going. satan had lots of jewelry, many earrings, necklaces, makeup, etc. Olga had all these things, too.  She never imagined satan would have these. She saw satan giving out these adornments to Christians, who were still alive on earth. When satan came to her, he said that he had wanted her soul for a long time. She said he would never get her soul, but he replied, “The Word of God says: Any kind of man’s clothing on a woman is an abomination to God.”  She said she had heard this many times before from Christian brothers and sisters, including her father, who was a very good and kind man.  Her father had asked her many times not to wear makeup and pants. But she listened to another voice on earth, who said, “It’s not sin. It’s not sin to have adornments. Wear pants. The pastor’s wife does. If it’s ok for others, it’s ok for you, too. There is a sister who sings in the choir and wears pants, so it’s not sin.” Now satan was rebuking her from the Word, and she knew she was guilty of everything. She didn’t think the Lord would give mercy to her.

Listen to her testimony on video and read it here.

She also said, “My dear sisters…when you come before the Lord, please cover your heads. How can you stay in God’s presence with your heads uncovered?  And you’re not ashamed? Don’t defend yourselves by saying, ‘The Lord says this is only for wives. It’s not for me.’ Sisters, when you come before God, you must cover your heads.”

She continued, “This is why I plead with you, my dear sisters, when you come before God, dress yourself in a godly dress. Don’t dress yourself in this world’s dress. I don’t want to be harsh with you. I am just pleading with you, because if the Lord comes to you and searches your heart, you know it will be found empty. Before you came to the meetings, you didn’t pray. Instead you spent a long time in front of the mirror. Then you come to church and you want blessings? Repent today!”

She said that after being gone for 3 hours, “I came back to my house at 4 AM. I had no rest until 6 AM after I had carried everything out from my house that wasn’t godly and wasn’t pleasing to God.  Makeup and everything had to go. I had thought that it would only take me two minutes to take everything out and repent.  I tried to clean everything out in only a few minutes, but it took me two hours.  I took everything out and I didn’t feel sorry about any of those possessions.”

Claire Andoun from Cameroon
Claire Andoun Atongo is a former prostitute who has become a new creation in Christ. She says the Lord has been speaking to her about the dirtiness in His Church (I urge you to watch her other video here). He's been showing her that there is a strange power that has come into the church, because this unclean spirit has been invited in by the women of God.  And the pastors will not preach against it.  This strange power is the Queen of the Coast, who leads the sisters in the Church to dress immodestly.



She said, “The Lord is angry about the way women of the last days are dressing.  They are dressed like the world.  They don’t know the difference between a child of God and non-believer, and no pastor is talking about it.  That’s why the Lord is sending me to warn women of the last days. This message is not for everybody. This message is for people, who are really determined to make heaven.”

She had a prophetic dream, in which the Lord said, “My Church is dirty!”  Also see it here.

I have spoken with a godly brother, named Yves Nahishakiye, who knows sister Claire well, and knew her before she came to Christ.  He vouched for her godly character.  I have also spoken with Claire myself on a number of occasions and prayed with her.  I have heard her share her salvation testimony, as well as her testimonies of revelations the Lord has given her. [Note: During the two years since this article was first posted, I have gotten to know her better and we have become friends]. I am convinced she is a genuine woman of God, who seeks with all her heart to please the Lord.

Sister Ayodele Sawyerr from Sierre Leone
The Lord showed sister Ayodele Sawyerr a woman of God for whom she had great regard.  Regarding this woman, sister Ayo said, "When she stood to minister the Word of God, you feel you can get the Word of God. He said, 'She is my daughter. But look at the way she appears in front of people. Look at the hair attachments, the short skirts; the code of dressing is wrong to God.  She's preaching the Word, but the dressing, the [hair] attachments...' Then the Lord said, 'Go and tell her I sent you, and that if she does not repent and remove these things she is putting on -- these attachments, this makeup, these things -- she will not make it.'" Sister Ayo was shocked, because she would not have reached that conclusion on her own!



Afterward the Lord showed her about two ladies, who were preparing to go to a church service (see 49:00 in video).  The older one was dressed modestly and never put on anything.  She came to the younger one's door and beckoned her to come.  But the younger one just said, "Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait."  And Jesus said to Ayo, "I want you to look." The Lord said to Ayo as she watched this on the screen, "Look!"  All of a sudden the lady came out, and what Ayo saw was that the makeup was so thick that she looked like a Jezebel.  And the blouse she put on was like an empty bra.  You could see the hair attachments.  You could see the way the lady dressed. Sister Ayo said, "She just looked like the Queen of the Coast."

She said the Lord was angry.  His countenance changed.  His tone of talking changed in that particular area.  He said, "Look! They have idolized these things. With all those things, they can no longer serve Me. Go and tell them, My daughter, 'If anyone be a woman of God, no matter the kind of congregation.  If she is putting on these things, she will not make it. She will go to hell. They have taken these things more than Me. With all these things, women can't praise Me, women can't worship Me, women can't seek Me with all these things."  Sister Ayo was shocked, and said, "God!"

Then He showed her the churches where people used to worship God, so she could see the kind of dressing the people put on.  The church is a very big something.  Sister Ayo said, "Some of them are just half naked."  The Lord said, "I want you to look, so that you can explain exactly to the women."  She said there are more women than men in hell.  She says, "Most of the women because of their dressing, it will take them to hell.  They think that if they don't dress like this, they will not be attractive to men, and will not find a husband.  Seek ye first!  When you put God first in your life, He knows what you need."

The Lord showed her the ways the brothers dressed in the Church. They are wearing their trousers down low on their hips, exposing their hind cleavage. They are exposing their chests with open shirts, so you can see their chests and the hair on their chests.  She said, "They are not making it to heaven."  It looked as if the anointing was with them when they worshiped.  Some of them were speaking in tongues, some were rolling, some were falling down, some were shouting as if the anointing was there. But the Lord said that this was not His anointing, because He does not enter into such churches.  He said, "I am not in their midst. I do not go into churches like this -- people dressed half naked, exposing their bodies." He said, "Your body is the temple of God. You should live a blameless and holy life."  Then she said, "I realized that churches today that say they felt the power of God; because of the way they dress, Jesus does not enter into those type of churches. The anointing they receive is not from God."

Michael Thomas Sambo
A godly brother, whom I have had the privilege of becoming friends with, died three times in two days in 2003. There were two thousand witnesses to this incident, who witnessed all that happened with him. During that time he experienced heaven and hell.

He said that in hell he saw a member of a Pentecostal church, who vowed not to forgive her pastor. He states:  When we arrived to hell, a young lady saw me afar off and shouted, "Oh, have you come to help me out of this place?" I could not respond to her question. Then she began to tell me the story of her life. She said, "I was a member of a Pentecostal Church. My pastor told me that wearing trousers, as a lady, was not a sin against God. He also said perming or jerry curling my hair, bleaching my skin, using lipsticks, plaiting my hair with attachments, were never sins against God. But the very day I arrived here I discovered that my pastor had deceived me. Can I ever forgive this man? Now it is too late for me. Can I ever leave this place?" While she talked, hell roared and she was swallowed up by its waves and tides. I did not see her again. She said these things she indulged herself in prevented her from truly serving God and have condemned her to hell; Genesis 35:1-5; Jeremiah 4:30; Proverbs 7:10; Romans 1:21-26; 1Peter 3:3-5. Deuteronomy 22:5



I strongly recommend you read my notes on brother Michael's testimony in my post, Michael Thomas Sambo's Revelation of Heaven and Hell.  I have spoken with Michael on a number of occasions and interviewed him on my radio program. I am convinced he is a genuine man of God, who seeks with all his heart to please the Lord.

I would like to add one brief note about relaxing the hair.  This is something that applies only to people with naturally curly hair, like the African hair type, which is typically very strong with naturally tight curls.  There is a treatment that relaxes this type of hair in an unnatural way.

A Word to the Skeptic
If you are skeptical about these testimonies, and you are not sure they are biblical, then please listen to this warning:

Scriptures
First, I ask you to consider the following Scriptures:

"'I have the right to do anything,' you say—but not everything is beneficial. 'I have the right to do anything'—but not everything is constructive. 1 Co 10:23

"So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don’t fall!" 1 Co 10:12

"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." 1 Co 6:19-20

"Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight. For this is the way the holy women of the past who put their hope in God used to adorn themselves. They submitted themselves to their own husbands, like Sarah, who obeyed Abraham and called him her lord. You are her daughters if you do what is right and do not give way to fear." (1Pe 3:3-6)

"Likewise, I want women to adorn themselves with proper clothing, modestly and discreetly, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly garments, but rather by means of good works, as is proper for women making a claim to godliness." (1Ti 2:9-10)

"A woman shall not wear man's clothing, nor shall a man put on a woman's clothing; for whoever does these things is an abomination to the LORD your God." (Deu 22:5)

"For this is the will of God, your sanctification; that is, that you abstain from sexual immorality; that each of you know how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor, not in lustful passion, like the Gentiles who do not know God...For God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life. Therefore, anyone who rejects this instruction does not reject a human being but God, the very God who gives you his Holy Spirit." (1 Thes 4:3-5,7-8)

"May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it." (1 Thes 5:23-24)

"Little children, guard yourselves from idols." (1Jo 5:21; cf. 1 Co 10:14)

"Rescue those being led away to death; hold back those staggering toward slaughter.  If you say, 'But we knew nothing about this,' does not he who weighs the heart perceive it? Does not he who guards your life know it? Will he not repay everyone according to what they have done?" (Pro 24:11-12)

"Whoever says to the guilty, 'You are innocent,' will be cursed by peoples and denounced by nations. But it will go well with those who convict the guilty, and rich blessing will come on them." (Pro 24:24)

"My son, do not reject the discipline of the LORD Or loathe His reproof." (Pro 3:11)

Other compelling reasons
Now that we have reviewed a few Scriptures, I ask you to please consider these other reasons:

1. The entire Word of God, not just the New Testament, is our basis for our lives and our beliefs about godly attire and adornment.

2. These testimonies about godly attire and adornment confirm the message of holiness, purity, and modesty that is already written in God’s Word throughout the entire Bible.

3. People are independently receiving the same message about godly attire and adornment from various countries around the world, including Bolivia, Zambia, Nigeria, Sierre Leone, and Ukraine.  

4. Both men and women are receiving this message.  

5. It is not coming from any single church, denomination, or organization with an agenda.  

6. Many of the people getting this message were themselves in violation of it before they got it. 

7. There are many more than just these seven people, who have received this message.  Now there are at least twelve, if you count Rachael Mushala, Zipporah Mushala, Samuel Oghenetega, Ezekiel Moses, and Michael Shigaba.

8. When I consider the number of witnesses involved in all twelve of these testimonies, including the confirmations of their testimonies, I think there may be at least twenty to twenty-four witnesses.  Even if you cut that in half, it is still ten or twelve witnesses. Even if we just look at the testimony of Michael Sambo, who died three times in two days, there were two thousand witnesses to this incident, who witnessed all that happened with him. Scripture says every matter must be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.  But this was so important to the Lord that we not miss this message that He has given us all these witnesses and confirmations, which is much more than Scripture requires. 

9. I have tested the fruit of these messengers to see whether it is good or evil.  In many cases, I’ve spoken to these people myself and or spoken to their pastors, parents, children, or others who have verified their story and/or their character.  

10. We use a Testimony Review Process on this blog that requires readers to listen to the testimonies of these people in their entirety, prayerfully consider the message, search the Scriptures to see if these things are true, test the fruit of the messengers, and discern the things of the spirit, before they leave a critical comment.  Although we have had tens of thousands of page views to these articles, we have not received a critical comment that was able to disprove their message from Scripture, or provide evidence to prove these witnesses are not telling the truth.  Every reader has had the same opportunity we have to check on the sources and do the research. Many of our readers live in the same country where these things occurred.  They would have been able to expose to us if these people are not genuine, or if there was anything in their lives that is ungodly.  Nobody has been able to adequately do so, according to the rules of our review process.

11. The Lord has indicated that he is coming soon, and He is going to do mysterious things before He comes.  Because His time is short, He will use a madman, He will use a prostitute, He will even use a child that doesn't have any teeth in his mouth to testify of His coming before He comes. That is why we must correctly discern the things of the Spirit.

12. We must be careful not to blaspheme against the Holy Spirit, which includes neglecting, ignoring, or totally opposing the gift of tongues, prophecy, and interpreting tongues. It includes aggressively opposing the gifts that have or are manifested in different ways. The spectrum of blaspheming against the Holy Spirit is very wide.  At one end of the spectrum are those who incorrectly make allegations, based on their prejudices and humanistic views. At the other end are those who judge and condemn others who operate in the gifts, as well as those who directly speak evil of the manifestations of the Holy Spirit. Therefore there is the risk of progressing into the sin of blaspheming against the Holy Spirit.  For more on this, please see my post, Blasphemy of the Holy Spirit.

That leaves us without any excuse if we reject this message. God still loves us, but His standard for heaven is high and He is not going to lower it for anyone. We are still saved by grace through faith, and everyone who makes heaven makes it by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, not by being perfect. But grace is not a license to sin and do what you know is displeasing to the Lord.  For more on this, please see my post, Seven Reasons to Believe the Seven Divine Revelations.

Putting it All Together
This is the report these people have given of what they experienced.  After listening to these testimonies, and checking on some of the people who gave them, it seems to me at the time of this writing that they are genuine. 

This is a very serious message, which the Lord in His mercy is giving to warn the Church.  And it is not just for the women, it's for the men, too.  We must all dress properly, modestly, and discreetly, not using jewels or expensive cloths to adorn ourselves, but the inward beauty of a meek and gentle spirit.  The Word of God does tell us that, no matter what you believe about these testimonies. Our love and good works should adorn us.

He is calling us to pursue holiness. For without holiness, no man shall see God.  And holiness is not just something inward in our spirit.  God wants our bodies to resemble holiness, too. So there must be an outward holiness.

Lastly, it is important to note that God sees the thoughts and motives of the heart, so most importantly our hearts must be pure. And only He has the "complete picture," or the complete set of data regarding each individual, in order to properly judge your soul. So check your thoughts about apparel and adornment, as well as your motives, and your actions.  Make sure they all line up with the character of Christ, the holiness of God, and the explicit instructions in the Word of God about the Christian dress code.

Any changes you make should be out of total love for Jesus, understanding Who He is and who you are in Him. Therefore, let your attitude be, "Lord, I love You with all I am, and by the power of the Holy Spirit I’ll do whatever it takes to please You."

Please prayerfully watch and review these testimonies in their entirety, and use the Testimony Review Process adopted by this blog, as you decide for yourself whether the Lord has spoken to these people.  For issues and concerns, each person must confirm with the Lord, whether something is valid or not. For more information on our position, please see Disclaimers.

If anyone is not convinced after these seven divine revelations, I also encourage you to read Rachael Mushala Testimony of Hell, as well as Visitation of Jesus to Samuel Oghenetaga, who both had a similar message from the Lord about godly attire and adornment.

You may also access my complete blog directory at "Writing for the Master."  There you will find many articles of mine about the need for inward godly character, such as the following ones:

Holy Living in a Perverted World Seeing Jesus, Loving Him, Character and Glory Avoid Becoming a Corrupted Christian
Is Obedience Optional? Costly Grace Pressing on Toward the Goal
The Cost of Discipleship Obedience by the Spirit The Obedience of Faith
Walking in the Perfect Will of God Righteous Deeds and White Robes Doing What is Right 

Do You Want to Know Him?
If you want to know Jesus personally, you can. It all begins when you repent and believe in Jesus.  Do you know what God's Word, the Bible says?

“Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.’” (Mar 1:14b-15).  He preached that we must repent and believe.

Please see my explanation of this in my post called "Do You Want to Know Jesus?"

  1. Concerning Linda testimony: i am not in total agreement with certain things she mentions that will land people in hell. She claim only 4persons would have made heaven in the all of the Sierra Leon country that includes 3 of her present pastors, and a nigeria pastors. So the question is what about the majority of members of the church who dresses so decently holy..so they would not have gone to heaven inspite of their holy look? this is questionable...her faithful sister who prays for her too was not included?

    She mentioned: dyeing of hair(old people), or plucking off grey hair, no use of perfume what soever,and not wearing of trousers even under a gown or skirt...this is outright controversial, and the covering of hair..some say long hair is the glory...etc. ". i am an africa...african hair(i believe this is genetic from babylon time) is difficult to managed that is why we result to soften it(this is technology)or put wig to safe the waste of time of maintaining the hairtype or to cover bald spots. What about people who have birth discoloration and had to put make up, or bald hair from sickness and had to put on wigs, and the wedding rings, there are trousers made for women and for men which women can not wear. some culture wears loose trousers or long gowns but men and women etc. If it is sexy dressings or indecent dressing or obsession to the makeup or jewellries or wigs and they have become gods or idols then this is very very bad. EVerything in the world was made by God. granted everything is polluted by devil and his agents and some use for idoltary, or become accursed objects. But then we live in it..we need to ask God and sanctify them and use.Old testament women: Rebecca was giving earrings etc as wedding presences(should this mean only spiritual quality only),ESther was bath with perfumes, the isrealites were given jewelry by the eyptians which we know was later use for calf idol, then later in the bulding of the tabanacle ,,,earrings, gold etc where brought to moses as gift to God...so after the golden calf one will think it was forbidden by GOd. Also in Isaiah 3...these set of zion ladies have turn their attires and golds to idols...but it did not condemn or forbid this things. Then in the new testament paul said women should not focus on all these but rather the inner beauty...but did not condemn these. I believe it is personal issue of our hearts with God and we should dress decent and godly to please God...for our body is the temple of the holy Ghost. Even the unbelievers can still tell who are true christians by the way we dress or act or talk. We should not turn creation,technology, ideas,etc to idols of whatever form. Idols replaces God. So when all these attires etc replace God in our daily life and heart they become idols. And God is a jealous God.

    1. You need to wake up and see the light okay.

      I am black and I have African hair. I wear my hair natural. It is not difficult to manage. You only find it difficult to manage because you are trying to style your hair like other races.

      You are fighting with you natural hair. You should learn to look after your own hair. You need to stop being brainwashed by the fashion industry and fashion magazines controlled by other races that actually tell black models they need to wear weaves before they allow them on runways and put them in magazines.

      All these women like Tyra Banks and Beyonce that bounce around with weaves are no model for black women .They are black women with a low self esteem . They are full of self hatred. They allow the fashion industry to tell them that their natural hair is ugly for the sake of making money.

      My hair is in dreadlocks. So there is not issue of so called manageability. My hair is also very neat . So neat that some people ask me if it is real because it looks so good.

      Our hair is not designed to be brushed like a Barbie or other races hair everyday. So it is not something to be ashamed of to say you don't pass a comb through your hair every day like other races. What is important is that you wash it and keep it neat.

      That is why we have such tight curls. If you notice as black people our hair only grows long when we have it in dreadlocks or twists. If you comb your hair regularly it breaks the curl and is also painful and that is why it seem like our hair cannot grow but that is a lie. My hair grows like crazy now that I wear it in dreadlocks.
      When I didn't have dreadlocks it only went up to just below my neck.

      It is also low maintenance. You can do it yourself at home . The technique is very easy once you get it started. I do it myself every weekend at home. No hairdressers needed and no fancy products..

      And this whole idea that dreadlocks is unsanitary is a myth developed by other races that don't understand our hair.

      Dreadlocks and twists are like any other hairstyle. If you want it to be clean it will be clean. If you don't it won't.

      I also wash my hair once a week . We are not like other races. We do NOT need to wash our hair every 2 days. Our hair does not get oily every 2 days like other races. Our hair is actually extremely dry and unresponsive to sweat and water. I can actually go up to two weeks without washing my hair even when exercising and it looks and smells good .

      My hair smells good and looks good and is very neat. There is nothing living in my hair.

      So when other races try to insult you for not washing their hair . You should not only tell them to mind their own business but pray to God that they see the light.

      I get compliments all the time. Even my husband who is white tells me he loves my hair. Also when he met me my hair was natural too. He never thought it was ugly. Actually he loved the fact that I was one of few black women that wear their hair natural.

    2. Also following on from the comment I just posted. This is my final comment. I just have to say this Len . It is a huge issue:

      If you notice in the world out there there is actually a revolution going on in the world of black women going back to wearing their hair natural in the form of dreadlocks and twists.

      You are brainwashed. I used to be too. I used to be using chemical relaxers in my hair since the age of 12 and i stopped at 19. I felt that I was fighting with God. Just think of all the time and money you wasted going to the hairdresser to keep your hair straight. You could be doing better things with that time and money.

      You need to just break away from the mind control. The fashion industry hates black women's hair because they don't understand it. Also the fashion industry started back when black people were slaves and were told that they are inferior. You need to see the world for what it is.

      All these black celebrities are not an example for anyone. They promote self hatred. They are all bouncing around with other races hair sewn into their head calling them selves black beauties.

      I can guarantee you when other races look at us they see people full of a low self esteem that don't like themselves. I have been asked by white friends in confidence "Why is it black women don't like to wear their natural hair?"

      Even black men don't like the fake hair but they go along with it because they have no choice. I have a black male friend that told me once in private. There used to be a time when black women were proud of wearing their natural hair e.g the 70s. What happened? And he shakes his head.

      And then black women are complaining when successful black guys only want to marry white women. By wearing weaves etc you are telling black guys that your hair is ugly. So why should he just not go and marry the person that already has the hair you desire.

      Think about it .

      African hair is a blessing from God. It is an exotic feature. We should learn look after it. Don't allow yourself to be brainwashed and made to feel inferior by other races. YOU are NOT.

      God does not make mistakes. He knew what he was doing when he gave us this kind of hair. It it not a curse.

      You don't need to style your hair like other races to be normal. You are black be proud of it. Anyone that tell you different is an enemy of God. Stop being brainwashed.

      Instead of agreeing with other races that our hair is bad we need to enlighten them and demand that they treat us with respect.

      We need to start in our own families and communities. Stop with this nonsense at home teaching your children that Afro hair is bad and straight hair is good. Just put an end to it.

      As Bob Marley once said " Emancipate your self from MENTAL slavery"

      You may not realise it but the grass always seems greener on the other side. I have met lots of white women that wish they didn't have to spend so much time on their hair. They wish their hair would stay in place without hair spray and hair gel.
      Our afro hair naturally has these features but yet we curse it.

      Trust me once you go natural you will feel liberated. I have been more than 10 years natural now and will neverrrrrr go back.

      I can go to the beach without worrying about getting my hair wet. If it rains I also don't have to worry.
      Stop burning up your scalp with that chemical straightener . It is toxic and evil.
      Love yourself for the way God made you.

    3. Suzie,
      I by no means want to offend you, I only mention this because I remember it from Linda's video. She mentioned that just by having one dreadlock you could go to hell. I'm sure there has got to be a way you can naturally take care of your hair without having to put it in dreadlocks. Anyways I hope this helped.

      Delete
    4. Dear sister Suzie, I might add that while I do not promote mental slavery or mind control, I also don't recommend living by or associating yourself with the words, ways, or music of that dope-smoking secular musician you quoted.

      The Rastafarian religion, which began in Ethiopia, is a false religion associated with socialism, Marxism, and black power. The Rastafarians were dope smokers, which you can easily verify. Since Marley was one of them, he happens to be the one that popularized the Rastafarian hairstyle you mentioned, which was given that name, because their hair was thought to be disgusting and frightening.

      I recommend separating yourself from the world and its secular musicians. You become whatever you put into your mind and heart, so be careful what you read and listen to. That man was influenced by his false religions, which were Roman Catholic (1945–66), Rastafarian (1966–80), and Ethiopian Orthodox (1980–81). In fact, he was baptised as a Rastafarian, so that is not someone I advise anyone to follow. A bad tree cannot produce good fruit.

      Please allow me to suggest a couple articles for you:

      http://len-seekingthelord.blogspot.com/2015/03/philosophy-and-empty-deception.html

      I also do not promote dreadlocks. In my opinion, it is an elaborate hairstyle like Peter warned about in 1 Pe 3:3. I advise keeping your hair, neat, clean, and natural the way God made it to be. Grace and peace.

  4. hmmmm. i believe the issue is not in the beautiful adornments. After all, it was God that blessed Abraham and Solomon with wealth which includes golden accessories, etc. The problem is when we give these things a higher place in our lives than we place God. When i started reading this blog, I was like "yeah right" but as I got to the end, i understood d focus... problem is if people take this literally, they might make their new focus on self righteousness and even be very judgmental of others. I belive God wants us 2 make Him the center rather than material wealth... People save up money to buy xpensive hair but refuse to provide for d poor. when they come 2 church, they become too conscious of messing up their hair or rumpling their clothes, or pulling down their short skirts, or dirtying their shoes so they can't fully xpress themselvs in d worship of God... However, in the matter of who gets moved by the Holy Spirit, I have seen people who are not decently dressed swept off their feet by the Holy Spirit (most times during deliverance sessions).. I have also taken a muslim girl to a prayer meeting where she was so filled with the Holy Spirit that she started speaking in tongues.. She opened her heart to God and He made it His dwelling plaace. I beliv if our hearts and attention are with God, it would be easy to please Him. We must focus on Him not on His gifts. thank u.

  6. Emphasis on cleaning the outside should be balanced with cleaning the inside. In fact cleaning the inside the key to all things. Many emphasize on cleaning the outside i.e. on outward appearance more than the inside so as to appear holy before men and not to God.
    Mat_23:25 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess.
    Mat_23:27 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness.
    Mat_23:29 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous,

  8. 1 peter 1: 15 but like the Holy One who called you, be holy yourselves also in all your behavior;

    Ezekiel 7: 19 ‘They will fling their silver into the streets and their gold will become an abhorrent thing; their silver and their gold will not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the LORD. They cannot satisfy their appetite nor can they fill their stomachs, for their iniquity has become an occasion of stumbling.

    20‘They transformed the beauty of His ornaments into pride, and they made the images of their abominations and their detestable things with it; therefore I will make it an abhorrent thing to them. 21‘I will give it into the hands of the foreigners as plunder and to the wicked of the earth as spoil, and they will profane it. 22‘I will also turn My face from them, and they will profane My secret place; then robbers will enter and profane it.

    23‘Make the chain, for the land is full of bloody crimes and the city is full of violence. 24‘Therefore, I will bring the worst of the nations, and they will possess their houses. I will also make the pride of the strong ones cease, and their holy places will be profaned. 25‘When anguish comes, they will seek peace, but there will be none.

    If you do not agree with the above verses you may have to erase it from your bible. these verses is not present in the bible for reading sake Rom 2:13 (For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.)

    If what your pastor is preaching to you is different from this tell him he and his congregation are heading to hell, God is not a respecter of anybody.
    Isaiah 3: 16 - 26
    16 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:
    17 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.

  9. Many Pastors and their members are in hell today because of the many wrong interpretation of the word of God. Can someone decide to tell lies so that you can increase your level of holiness and he or she can goes to Hell?
    1. I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

    2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

    This verse talk about the body not the the soul. There are several revelation home and broad that keep reiterating on appearance and dressing of christian women. This generation is lucky to have these facts reveal to them because on daily bases millions of christian are sinking into hell because of the deceit of the devil that have swallow the church.

    Some claim all you need alone is to accept Christ and continue your old life or live like the unbeliever, Be warned God can not be mucked. What then is the essence of the following verse of the bible? do you take one that suit you and neglect the others?

    2Chrintian 2: 17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. Can all thing become new with you continuing in your old rebellious and devilish way.

    John 8: 44 "Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it."

    Romans 6:1 King James Version (KJV) 6 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?
    Mathew 5: 48 King James Bible
    Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

We may not be opportune to die and come back to make amend if we also go to heaven and the lord tells us is not true we have nothing to lose.

  11. Amen!!! These are powerful testimonies. I truly believe the Lord has spoken to these people. As I kept reading, I felt convicted for most of these things we are doing wrong as daughter's of the King. To emphasize on the dressing, jewelery etc. Can you explain about the pants/trouser part. Because this is the 21st century and there is not 1 western female that does not wear jeans/pants. This has especially to do with the weather for some and for other it is just the fashion they grew up with. I would like it if you could give more us more insight on that. I have to admit, I have a weakness for the arts and literature. I have been emerging myself more and more into the kingdom of the enemy to learn more about him (I do know some of the systems he rules in like entertainment ind., fashion, government, and sadly the church). Yet, at some point I some what lost myself completely. But these testimonies remind me of the Love of my Life, the faithful prince, the one who truly Loves us. I still remember Him and want His affection back. However, I am on my way. I do not want to be too late and miss out on His return. So my request is to keep the struggling people, the broken people, and the people that are being deceived by the enemy in prayer (me). I just pray that most of us that do hear His voice and His consistent request of repentance do something with this information, and share it with your (our) fellow neighbors and whomever wants to listen to His words.... One thing I do know and am convinced of is that He wants to make us into the real church (of back in days like the apostles). Thank you so much for sharing your Blogs with us, Len. God Bless You!

    1. Dear Rachel, thank you for your comment. You are right. To your question about trousers, all I can suggest is to consult God's Word and pray for wisdom like your life depends on it. Deut 22:5 teaches that women should not wear that which pertains unto a man. And as if this Scripture were not enough for us 21st century people, the Lord has in His mercy given us these divine revelations to confirm he really meant it. If these 7 revelations were not sufficient, in His mercy, he has also show the same thing to sisters Rachael and Zipporah Mushala. Please check out their testimonies on this blog, which were added just this week. Blessings! Len

    2. Hello, i had the same problem with you too about wearing trouser regarding the weather. But you know what, Think about it, IN the old times there was still winter and the women were able to still wear garments. What I do is I wear thick tights under, get dresses and skirts and Im fine. It would be better for us to heed to this word and realize after judgement if it was not necessary to wear trouser than keep wearing trouser and then realize that It was wrong, as we wont be able to come back to ammend our ways. I pray the holy spirit would guide you! Be Blessed!

Rapture where I was wearing trouser and I was not raptured, I saw some leaders in my church that was not raptured, I saw anti. Christ, I actually bought things with naira but was given the new currency as. Change, the world was in a chaotic mood, I cried and cried that. I won't wear trouser again,it was so real that I thought it had happened, I woke up and cried,since that day,I started. Hating trousers,makeup, jewellery,I had. To burn my trousers and attachment and my daughters, I use to sale jewellery,I had to close my shop even before this revelation,

  13. Interesting article regarding their dreams and visitations. I totally agree about dressing modestly, the hair attachment thing and even the make up. Where I come up short is in the slacks or pants department. I do wear ladies slacks, not men's slacks. In all the dreams and visions God has given me, even when He has come to me with His audible voice, He has never mentioned ladies slacks being a sin or abomination to me. I have to think about the law that is written on my heart by God, about what Jesus said when his disciples pulled wheat from the stalks on the Sabbath and what he said about healing on the Sabbath. I do believe there is a measure of mercy. I would never agree that a woman should dress as a harlot or a Jezebel or wear make up and jewelry like that. I don't think a woman should put on men's pants. At this point, I do not see the sin in wearing women's slacks that fit loosely and not tight. That said, if the Lord God should come to me and correct me on this, I will most certainly come back and tell you that happened. I am not a rebellious daughter, I love my Father in heaven , His Son and His Holy Spirit more than my own family or my own life. Blessings, KB

    1. Dear sister Kasey, thanks for reading and commenting. I hear what you're saying. You need to pray for discernment in these things. However, I suggest reading Rachael Mushala’s Testimony of Hell. She had never read this article of mine that you have just commented on, until after I published her testimony and sent this article (Seven Divine Revelations) to her. She was very encouraged by it, because it confirmed the message the Lord gave her. The Lord told her He doesn’t want Christian women to wear trousers or jewelry. The Lord allowed her sister to hear satan giving instructions to his demons. He was saying, "Make sure they write 'LADIES TROUSERS' (on the label) so that women will wear them and come to hell.” I have checked on the character of these sisters, and I have spoken with them and corresponded. I am certain they are not making these things up. Blessings! Len

  17. Praise the Lord. I thank God for this Blog, God bless you Bro Len.I got my own conviction by the Holy Spirit in September, 2010 through the testimony of Evangelist Fumilayo Adebayo and that marked the beginning of my life in Christ in truth and in Spirit and I thank God for His mercy and grace. I tell you, it has not been easy at all because I still face persecution from my family members especially my husband but the Lord Himself has been seeing me through and I'm even writing a booklet about women's dressing to please our Lord and make Heaven which is the ultimate in a man's life through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. If you listen to all these testimonies, they keep saying the same thing especially how there are more women in hell than men due to dressing. I have one question for the mockers and those who are doubting; "Take away or deduct 120years from ETERNITY, what is the answer? Is that not enough to make them read the Bible passages where all these testimonies are corresponding and be wise instead of arguing blindly? I have made up my mind to make heaven whatever it costs me, even my marriage, I don't care. After all, many are in hell today because of marriage issues and besides everything ends here on earth. May the Lord Himself help us that believe to be ready for His imminent appearing like the five wise virgins in the Bible in Jesus name Amen.

    1. Dear sister, thank you for your comment, sharing your journey with us. I'm glad that this post encouraged you in your walk with the Lord to be faithful to what you know is really true, no matter what any man says. You are correct. Keep living in holiness, righteousness and truth. And yes, these people are independently receiving the same message about godly attire and adornment from various countries around the world. Both men and women are getting this message. And it is not coming from any single church, denomination, or organization with an agenda. Many of the people getting this message were themselves in violation of it before they got it. And there are many more than just these seven. Now there are at least 10, if you count Rachael Mushala, Samuel Oghenetega, and Zipora Bitrus. My wife and I did a quick estimate on the number of witnesses involved in all 10 of these testimonies, and there are around 30+ witnesses. Scripture says every matter must be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses. But this was so important to the Lord that we not miss this message that He has given us 30 witnesses, which is 10 times more than Scripture requires. That leaves us without any excuse if we reject this message. God still loves us, but His standard for heaven is high and He is not going to lower it for anyone. We are still saved by grace through faith, and everyone who makes heaven makes it by grace, not by being perfect. But grace is not a license to sin and do what you know is displeasing to the Lord. God bless you! Yes, He is coming and we must be ready. Maranatha!

  18. I never wanted to comment, but let me just do. First of all, let me start by saying this “no matter how genuine or true the word of God is when spoken, if it contains a lie, then it is not of God.” The devil is so trickish, so we shouldn’t expect him to give us a poisonous food with a label on it indicating the food is poisoned. Many are deceived today simply because the revelations in circulation have many elements of truth in them; nobody wants to find out what is wrong and contradicting about them. I was fooled before, but now I refuse to be fooled again. Thank God I have my own copy of the bible, thank God I can read and write, thank God I have the Holy Spirit in me that interprets the word of God to me when I read them.
    Did I hear you say trouser is a sin when worn by females? what scripture tells you that trousers are for men only? Deuteronomy 22 : 5 is always quoted, please is that the only law in that chapter? Why not read down the chapter and obey all other laws there? Trouser is a sin yet many girls who claimed it is do wear them in times of youth service, in the house, under skirt... Is this not hypocrisy? Don’t condemn what has not been condemn simply because you don’t wear them. The bible did not condemn it, modesty is what it says.
    Don’t wear earrings, don’t wear rings, don’t wear perfume, don’t rub cream, they are all sin, whereas you still ride on cars, you still use bags with golden and metal designs, you wear glasses and do others, are you not deceiving yourself? Why not abstain from them all?
    My bible told me the prodigal son was given a ring (luke 15:22), my bible told me Jesus Christ was given gold (matt 2:11), my bible also told me an expensive perfume was pour on Jesus feet (john 12 :3)
    I’m so ashamed of people who call themselves Christians yet they can’t study the word of God by themselves, they are busy going to listen to one revelation or the other. Who told you they died and resurrected? Where you there when it happened? Hebrew 9 : 27 says “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.” Maybe you haven’t read the parable of the rich man and lazarus (Luke 16:19-31), well, this is a part of it:
    "The rich man said, 'then please, father {Abraham}, send Lazarus to my father's house on earth! I have five brothers. Lazarus could warn my brothers so that they will not come to this place of pain (HELL).' But Abraham said, 'They have the law of Moses and the writings of the prophets to read; let them learn from that!' But the rich man said, 'No, father Abraham! But if someone came to them from the dead, then they would change their hearts and lives.' But Abraham said to him, 'No! If your brothers won't listen to Moses and the prophets, then they won't listen to someone that comes back from death.”
    WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT TO HEAR? LET’S BE WISE! THE BIBLE IS OUR ONLY STANDARD. SHALOM

    1. Dear Edebatu Emiluv, the Word of God is our basis for living, and the Holy Spirit leads us into all Truth. Every true sign and wonder must confirm the written Word of God. We must hold fast to that which is good and reject all kinds of evil. If you are suggesting that cross-dressing is not detestable to God, then you will give an account for that before him. If you will research the origin of trousers, you will find that they were never created for women by God's holy people. We should avoid all that is worldly and immodest. I suggest reading the blogs I have indicated in my first reply. Shalom!

    2. Hi Edebatu, wearing of trousers by females has no bearing in favour of modesty. I live in the Western world, and mind you there are some Baptist Churches here that still forbid women from wearing trousers/pants/ slacks, shorts and all such clothing that pertain to men. Unfortunately, most of our Pentecostal brethren are in the forefront of "throwing caution to the wind". It is like our Pentecostal women just wait for Hollywood to release some crazy designs and they put these on, as if they are being remotely -controlled by something evil. When a woman puts on trousers, her whole shape and outline is exposed. The trousers split into two and reveal the woman, as though she were naked. Men begin to lust after women- in trousers. Secondly, thick tights are never to be worn by women just on their own. Thick tights are the thicker version of leg stockings or panty hoses, and they all are actually underwear. These where used as underwear several decades ago. But now, women wear them as external clothing, this is quite repulsive and shameful. It is just like the woman is naked. Raping and de-humanizing of women is on the increase, and getting worse. Some psychologists are linking this phenomenal increase in the raping of women, to the way females are dressed-up. These days, most females dress-up exposing their virtues, nothing is hidden from the opposite gender, this arouses a lot of lust, wild immoral thoughts, and compulsive tendencies in men, and so they deal sadistically with such women.
      There is a born-again Republican in the US, who made a speech in January 2014, that he believes that the spirit behind homosexuality, gay pride movement, lesbianism, is being empowered by females dressing up like males; that is when women put on trousers and other masculine outfits, they attract the presence of demons into our societies. I believe that these demons possess such people, and when they do, the women begin to behave like men and they say that they are men - lesbians. Like wise, when men dress up like females, or when they go about changing their gender via plastic surgery, they also attract these demons and then the men start saying they are women- gays.
      In Matthew 13, when Jesus Christ explained the parable of the weeds, to His disciples, after they asked Him to; He said in verses 40-43 "As the weeds are pulled up and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of the age. 41. The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will weed out of His kingdom everything that causes sin and all who do evil. 42. They will throw them into the blazing furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 43. Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the Kingdom of their Father. Whoever has ears, let them hear."
      From the above scriptures, a wise child of God will not take Jesus words lightly. We should not treat the whole bible lightly. People claim that Deuteronomy 22:5 is in the old testament, and so they don't think it applies to us. The other verses in Deuteronomy Chapter 22, if applied to our lives, will greatly improve our building technology, clothing manufacturing, agriculture etc.
      Tithing, Seed offering, First fruit offering and all forms of Offering principles are from the Old Testament and they are extracted 'verbatim' by many Christians today, especially Church leaders and Pastors. So whenever something is financially rewarding, the Old Testament becomes important, but when it comes to moral issues and issues pertaining to decent/modest dressing, we begin to say that the Old Testament is not relevant for our day.
      Christians should not play with Hell fire.
      The fact that we have found ourselves in a fallen world under satanic rule, doesn't mean we should blend with the world 'hook, line and sinker'.

  19. Dear Edebatu,
    here's a question for you;if you walk to a public bathroom and the sign on the door is a person in trousers would that mean that bathroom is for males or females?
    if you go down in history you will find that originally trousers were meant for men.
    when sin is committed too frequently it begins to seem normal.
    because women have been wearing trousers for ages,it has become normal but it doesn't change how God views it; He still sees it as men's clothing the same way He saw it in the begining;when women had just started wearing them.
    you spoke about handbags with metalic parts and to me that doesn't fit the definition of jewelry.
    if you are in doubt about these revelations, please seek God about them.
    seek Him with an open heart, let Him tell you whether He spoke to these people or not.

    1. Thank you for your testimony and I would not take these likely as I would not wanna joke with my eternity if this is really from God. However we have been warned by God to test the spirits and I believe we would be judged according to the word of God. So it is important to really understand what the word of God really does say with the guide of the holy spirit.

      What I come short is of in the jewelry section. In 1 Peter 3:3-5 In GNB 3 You should not use outward aids to make yourselves beautiful, such as the way you fix your hair, or the jewelry you put on, or the dresses you wear. 4 Instead, your beauty should consist of your true inner self, the ageless beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of the greatest value in God's sight.

      KJV Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting 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.

      So when I look at this verse, it tells me it should not be the outward adorning, that you use in this context to please your husband but your character, not saying you should not use outward adornment at all, but its your character that they are talking about that you can use to attract your husband but did not condemn the use of outward adornment. I love God and all. I don't have a problem doing any of these things, but I have a problem if maybe the word of God is misinterpreted. As the bible says, my people perish due to lack of knowledge. And as a beleiver we have to watch and pray and always pray for guidance of the holy spirit.

      It would be good if this is also covered on why this would defile you from the inside a well as the balancing it with the outside instead of focusing on the outside alone. We need a proper explanation of what legalism is, why this is not legalism etc. and how this is not legalism. I believe if we all love each other as christians and people who are new believers do not understand, with the love we profess for each other, we should be patient and willing to explain more of these things if people might not seem to agree or understand at first. I would be willing to stop it if i get a conviction and understand. Since at the end of the day, we would be judged by the word of God which is what I first look at, even if someone has a revelation, the word of God is our standard.

      As I said earlier, I have been praying for a conviction and the holy spirit because I cannot do anything on my own, and at the same time. I would need better explanation. Thanks

  20. Can't Christians who profess to love God make a small sacrifice for Him, is it too big for God to require that women should remove ear rings ,trousers and hair attachments, some Christians are strongly against it because it's interfering with their interest , are we going to meet God with these excess luggages in heaven please let's repent and run this race like children and not to show that we know too much or be ready to learn the truth in heaven.

  23. Dream 17th of January 2014 - The RAPTURE


    Between 2am and 6am on 17 January 2014, I had a dream.


    There was an open invitation for people to come and attend a workshop/conference and the man that acted the role of Jesus in the film "The Passion of the Christ", was supposed to be the speaker. When people had assembled in the lecture hall, we all discovered that the man had actually transformed and turned into the real Jesus Christ. Jesus had golden blonde hair, same colour as his beard and moustache. He wore a long white robe.


    Jesus Christ gave a lecture about how the rapture will take place. He showed us how the chosen ones will rise up and then vanish. He said He was leaving but will soon return to take His chosen people at the rapture.

    He prayed for some people before He left, after the lecture. My husband was lucky to be one of those that Jesus laid hands on. I missed the laying on of hands because I had to leave the hall at the middle of the lecture, briefly with my children to go and pick something that they needed from our hotel rooms. When I returned to the lecture hall, some people said that Jesus had left but, He promised to return for us very soon.
    I believe that the rapture will take place very soon because in the dream, my children were all less than 7 years of age, but in real life, my children are all teenagers, the oldest is 18 years old while the youngest is 13 years old. Whenever I reflect on this dream it becomes clearer to me that Jesus' return is imminent. This has made me to ensure that myself and my household have enough oil in our lamps, and extra oil as well. We must resist every form of luke warmness, so that we are ever ready for His return -THE BLESSED HOPE

  24. Since I stopped applying makeup and I stopped perming my hair, my husband says I'm more attractive and my skin glows more than ever before.
    This is an additional proof that the devil is a liar, and has always been a liar. Refuse to believe his lies. We don't need to make-up our faces to another level or to wear a disguise, just for the fun of it.
    Remember, we were & are created in God's image. Jesus never wore earrings.
    The devil wears earrings, nose rings, finger rings, necklaces etc, that is why satanists and celebrities are piercing their skins and bodies all over the place. Since I stopped wearing jewellery, my prayer life has become more powerful and I've stopped having nightmares of snakes pursuing me in my dreams. Did you know that jewellery are actually charms ? The bible keeps referring to jewellery and amulets as charms, see the books of Ezekiel, Isaiah etc. if you can Google "jewellery charms" you will realise that you are exposing yourself to the manipulation of the wicked one whenever you put on jewellery. Witches, Warlocks and Wizards in the Western world use cosmic powers to manipulate your dreams by the design of the jewellery you are putting on. Do women and men know that all jewellery designs have a meaning ? That Jewellery can alter a person's behaviour and personality ? I believe the same happens in Africa and the world over. Please Christians should read the Bible thoroughly and also go to google, and check "jewellery designs and their meanings" Thank God I'm free from bondage at last. Hallelujah. If I had been wiser many years ago, I would've have stopped using these things since then, and the spiritual joy and excitement I have now, would have been my portion back then. But thank God I got delivered before my last day on planet earth. Praise Jesus !

  25. Thank you for these revelations. I have personally been convicted about women's dressing for a while now and this piece has confirmed many things to me. I would like to ask about veiling women's heads. Does God want Christian women to veil their heads all the time just like the moslims? Please help me clarify this

    1. Dear Eve, thanks for reading and commenting, and glad to hear these have served to confirm what the Lord has been convicting you about already. About the veil, it is the biblical standard for how women should present themselves in the holy presence of the Lord. The context of 1 Co 11 and 12 is particularly about proper order for corporate worship gatherings. As I have covered in Is a Woman's Hair Her Head Covering?, the Scripture does not teach that women must keep their heads covered at all times, 24/7, 365. Shalom!

  26. I came to the Lord two years ago and I one night about six months after our conversion I was sitting in my bedroom while my husband had a youtube video on of one of these African women (can't remember who right now) preaching about modesty. I had just gotten back from the gym and was wearing yoga pants and a tank top. When I heard this women speak I was so completely convicted I could hardly move. After her testimony I immediately repented and the next day threw all of my immodest clothes out. Since that day my daughters and I only wear modest skirts, swim skirts, ect. The harder thing to give up was make-up but I just keep telling myself that I dress for God's glory to give him honor not to satisfy my flesh that wants me to blend in. It's so hard as women to give up what we have used to our entire lives. I never thought twice about it before but knowing that it not only breaks God's heart when we dress immodestly or wear make up and jewelry but we can land in hell over it, how is it even a question of what we will do? The hardest part for me is being looked at as a fanatic. I know people don't know what to make of us because we don't dress like Muslims but we don't dress Amish either, there is no category for us in our US society. I am more frustrated that I cannot for the life of me find a church that supports this standard of holiness without going to a UPC/Apostolic church. These two groups seem to be the only ones in the US that promote this teaching. Otherwise, every church I've gone to (about 25 in two years) in our area is very laid back with holiness preaching. The focus is always on the inward heart condition but if it didn't start there then why would we change our outward appearance to match our inward conversion? Anyway, thank you for your blog and posts. God bless you on your efforts to get this very important word out. Let's pray for eyes to be opened, God did it for me, he can do it for anyone!

  27. I have had grey hair since I was 8years and all my life I had been using all sorts of colour to cover it not knowing that I was wrong all the time it was until I listened to linda's testimony of her visits to heaven and hell that I realized I was so wrong. Beloved these people that God has given the opportunity to visit heaven n hell r not lying. We have to believe in the end time warns about the end times.
    I shared the testimony with some members of my church and some walked away and said I was bringing a false doctrine, yet after watching the video of linda I told them to seek God concerning this cos the bible tells us to test the spirits. Now recently one member of the church confessed how she was battling with the fact that she had to drop false hair and keep her natural hair, she sought God and in a dream she found herself at a beauty shop where she had gone to buy some weave on to pray and a man appeared to her and said that he wants to dress her with a new dress so that his glory can shine on her BUT she must first take off the weave on she was wearing and keep her natural hair, after this she woke up and the next day she took off the weave on and has decided to keep her natural African hair.
    Beloved if you doubt these testimonies go back to the throne of mercy he will give you an answer like he gave my dear sister in the dream. It was hard living with out colouring my hair but am getting used to it and I feel unique cos people stare at me, my family members don get it but I know am doing what God wants me to do living a holy life both on the inside and outside.....Those who seek him diligently find him.

    1. Sister Florence, that's a great testimony. You are exactly right. The first reaction a lot of people have is either to walk away or call it false doctrine, and other people have a sense inside that it could be true, but they resist it, because they think it would be too difficult to live that way. But the ones that love the Truth and seek the Lord to confirm whether this is really true, the ones who take the time to watch the whole video testimony and really ask the Lord for the Truth, they find it and repent. They are the ones like you who have found glorious freedom. Thanks for commenting. The Lord bless.

    1. Dear Olivia, please read and meditate on Mk 3:28-29 (NIV or NASB) and Rom 8:1-2 (King James or MKJV). Also read 1 Jn 1:9. The Lord promises that if we repent and confess our sin, he will forgive us and cleanse us. You must accept that by faith.

      Also see:

      and
      http://workinggodsway.blogspot.com/2014/03/righteousness-by-faith-not-law.html.

      The Lord is full of compassion. He does not treat us as our sins deserve. Read Ps 103. He loves those who pursue righteousness (Pr 15:9). He is with those who are of a lowly and contrite spirit (see Is 57:15; 66:2).

      Regarding restitution, when you have no way to contact the people involved, and you cannot locate them through writing a letter or internet search or what have you, you just ask the Lord to forgive you and trust in His mercy. Many of us have such situations.

      Shalom!

  31. I have been really unsure about jewellry, which seems to be spoken of favourably in the Old Testament on occasion (eg Genesis 24.22), and to a lesser extent make-up (here there is scripture against it (eg 2 Kings 9 30)), but not specifically prohibited in the New Testament - or so I thought. But now I am coming to see that 1 Peter 3.3 may be read in effect as 'let the women not adorn themselves externally..' with three examples, but not I think excluding other forms of external adornment. So it may be that in fact there is a New Testament commandment against all outward adornment by women.

    2. Another way of looking at it is as worldliness. According to Margaret Amure, she was subject to judgement because of worldliness in her dressing. There is enough in scripture, especially 1 John 2.15, and also James 4.4, to leave one without excuse who conforms to worldly standards in attire.

    5. Feelings can also be deceptive. We walk by faith not by sight or feelings. I think some people make the mistake of listening to preachers who make them feel good. The Scripture speaks about that, saying "to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear." (2 Tim 4:3). Blessings, Len

  32. Hi all.. Just wanna share
    after read this testimony I seek the Lord for days to tell me whether it's all true or not. Again, BIBLE it's the standard. I prayed crying to God if this is true or not, because today most millions or say u can't count how much all women in the world use make up, trousers, or say, curling their hair. I think n really troubled that my self or the millions out there makings sins n God will punish us because of these things. I am not a person who really like so out all make up but as I can look fresh, n I use trousers for work because the effectivity in my work, I do arrange my hair but not often. But these are not my points. I prayed to God if He can tell me if this is true or not, the answers come day to day.
    1st answer, I remember awoke in the morning with the words "It's unbiblical things" then 2nd answer is thru my morning devotion. But again I really wanted to be confirmed. Then I kept praying. Then 3rd answer is God showed me this verse, Ezekiel 12:24. But still because of all this revelation seems convincing like truth n scares me a lot, then the next day God gave me this verse, Jeremiah 23: 21,22, 25-27, 30-31. But then I still said to God, "God please give me the truth. I don't want to end up in hell like they said." Then God tells me that in the Bible to see if testimony it's true or not, u can see from the FRUIT. I asked again, "What fruit God,they all seems righteous. Please give me the final about this. Whether truth or not." It's really shocking when I found out today, what I believe it's final, that their FRUIT is SELF RIGHTEOUSNESS. Not using make up, trousers, not this or that. Do u think Jesus saved us by our works?? NO, Jesus saved us by His Blood on the cross, n Bible tells us clearly that THE JUST LIVE BY FAITH not works. If it so, kindly think about Harlot RAHAB, can u imagine how a prostitute likes?? But bible clearly said that, by Faith the Harlot Rahab did not perish when she received the spies with peace. (Hebrews 11:31) it's by faith we saved. Kindly correct me if I'm wrong. I'm open for correction. But let me say this, before u go to read revelations or rather u count on a revelation, go to ur room, kneel down, n pray to God earnestly so He can directs u. That's all from me. I don't want to offend anybody. But please don't believe any lies, read n study bible deeply, SEEK ONLY GOD WORDS. God bless you all!! Amen.

    1. Hi, Sorta, you've said quite a bit there, and you are entitled to your own opinion. However, I would like you to consider the following:

      First of all, I agree that Righteousness is by Faith and not Law, as I have written:
      http://workinggodsway.blogspot.com/2014/03/righteousness-by-faith-not-law.html

      Secondly, in Faith Works, I explain how we do works once we are saved. For it is out of appreciation that we work. http://workinggodsway.blogspot.com/2013/12/faith-works.html

      Thirdly, we all have to carry our cross, as I explained in Carrying Your Cross or Cross Dressing:
      http://len-seekingthelord.blogspot.com/2014/01/carrying-your-cross-or-cross-dressing.html

      Next, I have outlined from Scripture the basis for godly attire and adornment in Garments of Godliness:
      http://len-seekingthelord.blogspot.hu/2012/06/garments-of-godliness.html

      I would like you to consider these and ponder the following questions:

      When you reject these testimonies, do you realize that if these messengers are sent by the Lord, then you also reject Him? Jesus said, "Whoever listens to you listens to me; whoever rejects you rejects me; but whoever rejects me rejects him who sent me." (Lk 10:16).

      Do you realize that if you reject the Lord's true message of holiness as if it were deception from the devil that you are in danger and moving in the direction toward blaspheming the Holy Spirit? So be very careful, not to say these messages are from the devil.

      Do you realize that in rejecting these messages, you are rejecting the messages of about 12 people on about 4 continents in several different countries who received their messages completely independently of one another, who claim the Lord gave them the message?

      Do you realize that these accounts had eyewitnesses, and one of them had 2,000 witnesses, in the case of Michael Sambo? Every matter will be established by two or three witnesses.

      You are free to do what you wish, but you also have a responsibility for your actions to obey the Lord.

      Be careful. For whoever tries to keep their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life will preserve it. (Lk 17:3)

    2. Thank you, same here. I first saw thers revelations when i was getting to be a new believer and more serious with God and did not really understand what salvation meant, or legalism etc. I came in with an opened mind and really prayed to God to reveal His truth to me. However,Ihave found out that the use of outward adornments are ot sins, trousers make up etc. We are justified and sanctified by grace not by laws. What comes from the inside is what defiles you not from the outside. Christianity is a lot deeper than just solely giving outward principles or laws to follow which is why Jesus died on the cross and promised to send the Holy spirit to convict us of the truth. Everything we do or obey in the bible, we have be convicted that it is wrong or not, and when we do not do them., then it is a sin. Gods knows our hearts that way and judges us with that. If you have not been convicted not to stop using outward adornment. Dont do it. Now I am happy, I have definately become more modest in my appearance because I have been convicted, not because of the fear of going to Hell. Lets choose grace not laws. Be blessed!

      Delete
    3. I don't think we have to be convicted to obey the commandments of the New Testament, although certainly it helps if we are conscious of the Spirit's prompting. If we sin deliberately there is no longer a sacrifice for sin, according to Hebrews 10.26. So what scriptural grounds do we have to suppose that the testimonies are not true? What if God has chosen to speak to us through testimonies rather than through inner promptings of the Spirit?

      Blessings, Andrew

      Delete
    4. Hey, Andrew, good point. We should always pray and ask for wisdom and discernment, but when things are written in God's Word already for us, we don't need for a special prompting to obey. We must take the Word literally and seriously, dealing with sin drastically as Jesus commanded in Mt 5:30 and other verses in His Sermon on the Mount. Shalom! Len

      Delete
    5. Read the book of Romans and Galatians. This explains how we are justified by faith not by laws. The problem with the outward adornment is: You can understand it to be a sin, by taking it literally: then it would be a sin for us not wear clothes butwe must wear good works, not wear jewelry, braided hair, etc in 1 peter 3:3-5. The holy spirit in you would lead you to all truth, Convict you if it is a sin or not:John 13:17. The laws of Moses are 613 laws, and we cannot just pick and choose which one applies to us. If we are going to be going by those verses and saying not obeying deut 22:5 would take you to hell, then we have to obey every single law in there, if not we would still go to Hell. Where in the bible did it say only deut 22:5 is applicable or where did it expantiate which ones are not. So these are the issues I have with these revelations. Thats why we need the holy spirit. So the concept in the first place of understanding what is sin and what is not is by praying to God to lead you to all truth. Between, there have been other revelations I have seen with people who use outward adornment and also say it is from God, and these people are saying it isn't., so which one is right? This is exactly why we go to the bible and base it on that. So at the end of the day, we would leave it for God to judge. Some people outward adornment might be a sin if it is placed more than God in their lives, as abosolutely nothing you do should come before God, thats why God knows your heart and for others it might not be a sin, if they do not place outward adornments more than God. So it depends on how you interprete it. Thats exaclty why i am not going by revelations but by the word of God. It is very easy to look at someone and say because they are wearing long skirts and not putting make up etc would make them look holy, but the real issue is the matter of the heart in the first place. Even if we have a 1000 revelations that have some amount of truth and 5% lies then it cannot be from God. God is not an arthur of confusion. The bible explains in 1 tim 2:9, that our good works/character should attract people to us, not because of saying i do not wear jewelry or braided hair etc. If we are also going literally by that, then it should only be applicable to wives.On the day of judgement, God would judge us by his word not by revelations of people. I would make no further comments on this issue! Be blessed!

    7. Dear Jummai, I have much sympathy with your point about Deuteronomy 22.5 - these laws were given to Israel, and so it is by no means obvious that they apply to believers today. On the other hand, there are laws in the torah which we do all believe apply today - notably the laws of incest in Leviticus 18 - somehow we realise that we are not now free to marry our close family relatives. I take particularly seriously those verses that say that something is an abomination to the Lord, as in Deuteronomy 22.5. God hasn't changed so if something was an abomination to God then, it almost certainly is so today.

      I don't see how you can believe that the instructions to Christians in 1 Timothy 2 and 1 Peter 3 are not to be taken literally. They are obviously about outward adornment, and 1 Peter 3.3 says that the adornment of women should not be that which is outwardly - in the Greek this is an adverb, and I think this can probably be taken as a general principle, followed by 3 specific examples, all of which relate to activities which take much time - of plaiting, of putting on - as a commentator called Bengel pointed out a long time ago.

      In 1 Timothy 2.9, the Greek word is γυναῖκας from γυνή, which means 'a woman' - it's where we get words like gynaecology. You're right, it can probably mean 'a wife' but it's not obvious that the Greeks had a separate concept for that, since they didn't have a separate word for it. In some scriptures it's obvious that the reference is to a married woman, since reference is also made to her man - and then we tend to translate as husband and wife. But in 1 Timothy 2, there's nothing to suggest any limitation to married women.

    8. Hey Andrew, Thanks for your reply. But this still does not adress my concerns mentioned above. This is your opinion about what the scripture means! Infact, what you think dosen't matter, What matters is what God thinks and what these scriptures truly mean, with the guidance of the Holy spirit. I already mentioned my views, and you mentioned yours. And if we have both prayed to God to reveal his truth to us! then we'll let God be the judge!

    9. I think it is better to appear before God's judgement and be told you over obeyed than to perish for mere adornments sake. If you listen to Sis Linda she mentioned in a place where Jesus says holiness is both I repeat both within and without if you miss out in either you will not qualify, The devil can almost imitate everything except live a fully sanctified life, so Brother Len keep up the good ministry, those that will receive it will do for broad is the way of destruction and many walk thereat.

      http://www.truegospel.co/articles/english/spiritual-devotion/257-death-bed-experiences

      Then scroll down to about three quarters the way down the web page to the heading that says, "The devil is coming for me". Or can can do a Control+F on your keyboard on that webpage and type in those words and it will take you to it.

      It is a testimony of a deathbed experience of a young lady who followed the fashions of the world. If you have any feedback afterward, I would be interested to hear it here in this discussion. Shalom!

  33. Thanks for the testimonies. Please i want to ask something, in the story of the woman with the issue of blood, the Bible says she said in her heart if only she can touch the border of Jesus's garment. what is a garment? isn't it a dress or so if this is true then that means Jesus wore women's wear. Also the Bible says it is dishonor for men to keep long hair but it is a glory for woman and yet there are men in the Bible who kept long hair. Please what do you say on this, help me to understand, thank you.

    1. Dear Pasca, Thanks for your insightful question. In answer to you, I will quote an excerpt from someone who recently wrote to me:

      "Pants for men (as we know them today) have been around for only 200 years (bifurcated outer garments for only 500 years). But men since the beginning of time 6000 years ago until TODAY have been wearing garments such as robes, tunics, and skirted garments...We even see Jesus wearing a robe and when he returns he will not be giving out pants to the faithful, instead He will be giving robes of righteousness. All of these garments are not bifurcated but have ALWAYS been men's clothing since Adam and Eve. If God is the same TODAY as he was YESTERDAY and is FOREVER and does NOT change, then these garments would still be acceptable men’s clothing today, especially where they have survived until modern day? If it was acceptable to God then and not sinful, then they would not be sinful today?"

      If we apply the same scriptural truth to men's clothing as we do to women's clothing, then men wearing modest men's garments other than pants, etc would still be acceptable today. "Furthermore, not only have men worn such garments since the beginning of time, and in many countries outside the west still do, but none of these garment have ever been taken from woman's clothing like pants have been taken from mens; these were originally men's garments from the beginning."

      I think the key here is modesty, so that the garment actually covers one's nakedness as a robe would in the days of Jesus.

      As for hair length, if one knows what pleases God (i.e., short hair for men and longer hair for women), then why wouldn't they want to do what pleases Him, regardless of what someone else like Samson did. I would not say that Samson is the biblical standard for how all men should wear their hair, and the apostle Paul explicitly taught us in 1 Cor how men should wear their hair.

      I hope this helps.

      The Lord bless!

  34. Thank you Mr Len but if this is the case that pants for men have been around for only 200 years then don't you think Deuteronomy 22 v 5 wasn't referring to pants since they weren't there that time. I'm just asking this though i don't wear pants myself.

    1. Dear Pasca, your line of reasoning is faulty. Just because a sin is not mentioned by name in the Bible does not mean it is not a sin. Cigarettes are not in the Bible either and neither is crack cocaine or LSD, but that doesn't mean we are free to use them. Please note the phrase "and the like" in Gal 5:21 (NIV).

  35. Here's another advert for a kabbalistic shma Israel bracelet:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/SHEMA-ISRAEL-KABBALAH-RED-BRACELET-Shma-Yisrael-Jewelry-String-Gift-/200867492605

    '..Wearing a red bracelet (as a type of talisman) is a custom associated with Kabbalah in order to ward off misfortune brought about by an "evil eye". By tying the red bracelet around his or her wrist, the wearer is protected from the destructive power of the Evil Eye, thus preventing disease, poverty, accidents or other misfortune from befalling the wearer. '

    It's intended as a talisman, so I don't think you should wear it. If nothing else, somebody might think you are wearing it for protection even if you are not.

  37. TO ALL WHO DO NOT BELIEVE IN REVELATIONS
    Dear believers! may our MOST HIGH GOD be praised! Firstly we should all know that we are in Devils Kingdom( the world ). But what devil do???
    HE DECEIVES,KILLS AND DESTROYS.....of course we are deceived in soooo many ways brothers and sisters...we are destroyed....and we dont see because we use our physical eyes mostly!! we dont belong here..God says if " we are not child of this world...we should not go by the things of this world.." because "MOST OF WE CHRISTIAN WE ARE DECEIVED( this is me)" the world says that " so many people will be deceived..even my very elect". Going to even is not simple my friends WE NEED TO BE BRAVE. Only the saints shall see him....it only takes a single sin to go to hell, but purity to enter heaven!. The testimonies shows that the ration of entering heaven and hell is 1:1000 ,we need to struggle so much to be there people for he is with us he promised to be with us till the end .Most of us we were born and found traditions of the people who lived without obeying God and followed them blindly (Deception) believing they are customs , moral is not so remember we need to be brave to go to heaven.
    Dear friends "SATAN IS A PERSONAL EVIL" we dont need to see him..but he deceives our mind through our beliefs, thought,behaviours and anything in our mind which he knows it is against God.the bible shows how clever he is in Genesis during Adam and Eve.We really need to be prayerful and seek Gods wisdom through bible, testimonies, revelations because our God is a faithful God, he dsnt want to loose us.
    If any of us thinks these revelations are not true...then why should they w
    warn us on going to heaven?? why should they be stressing on reading the bible??
    why others from very different countries and continents but speaking of same reality??...we should know what is from God "by it fruits" is written so why do they read us to righteousness??...Dear believers there is no punishment on earth you will get by stop living your worldly behaviors aside..dont let clothes, earrings and other worldly things make you go to hell is very! very! very! TERRIBLE THERE! ..there are gold mansions that our father has prepared for us..THIS WORLD IS NOT OUR HOME! shalom!

  38. My father was a Christian pastor for 40 years. My mother started perming and dyeing her hair after she turned 55 until the year she died when she was 75. She also loved wearing jewelry, tight skirt, Chinese cheongsam, and sheer black fishnet pantyhose. Six months before she died she suffered from a stroke, and she could not move and talk. Since she could not move and talk, she could not perm and dye her hair in her final 6 months. Can she still go to heaven?

    1. Dear Sad Robinson, first of all I am sorry to hear about your mother's passing. I pray the Holy Spirit would bring you comfort in your loss. Many of us have loved ones who die, whom we don't know if they made it to heaven, and that is difficult. But we can still at least hope to see them there one day, and only if we take heed to the warnings the Lord gives and ensure that we are living our lives according to the Lord holy standard for heaven.

      As for whether your mother made it to heaven, the Heavenly Father knows. Just and true are His ways (Rev 15:3). Will not the judge of all the earth do right? (Gen 18:25). How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out! (Rom 11:33) We can only hope that your she realized her mistakes and repented for her sins during those months before she died. The Lord will have mercy on whom He will have mercy (Rom 9:15).

      I also suggest going to the Lord in prayer and asking Him to show you where your mother is now, whether she made it to heaven. He may in His mercy and grace choose to reveal that to you. If He doesn't then be content to leave it with Him. "The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our children forever." (Dt 29:29).

      Shalom!

  39. I agree with Jummai Joseph
    The issue is not Money but the way money is misused, the issue is not food but when it causes a brother to stumble then leave it, the issue is not dressing but when it stumbles your brother or sister get rid of it,THE ISSUE IS NOT ORNAMENTS BUT IDOLIZING OR TRUSTING IN YOUR ORNAMENTS, see Ezekiel16:9 “‘I bathed you with water and washed the blood from you and put ointments on you. 10 I clothed you with an embroidered dress and put sandals of fine leather on you. I dressed you in fine linen and covered you with costly garments. 11 I adorned you with jewelry: I put bracelets on your arms and a necklace around your neck, 12 and I put a ring on your nose, earrings on your ears and a beautiful crown on your head. 13 So you were adorned with gold and silver; your clothes were of fine linen and costly fabric and embroidered cloth. Your food was honey, olive oil and the finest flour. You became very beautiful and rose to be a queen. 14 And your fame spread among the nations on account of your beauty, because the splendor I had given you made your beauty perfect, declares the Sovereign Lord.

    15 “‘But you trusted in your beauty and used your fame to become a prostitute.

    so people everything can become evil when misused even your body.thats why Jesus said that pluck your eye out if it takes you to hell, ans so you other body parts. to some trousers are stumbling block, but to others that's a petty issue, to Scottish "highland dress" even for men iz nothing but to others or my God thats a skirt!!!!, in Africa a woman breast feeding in Public is nothing but to a westerner, or my God that's nudity. IN CONCLUSION THERE FORE, DON'T ALLOW ANYTHING TO STEAL YOUR PEACE IN CHRIST, JUST OPEN YOUR EAR TO THE HOLY SPIRIT.
    Romans 14:17…16Therefore do not let what is for you a good thing be spoken of as evil; 17for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. 18For he who in this way serves Christ is acceptable to God and approved by men.…

    1. hiseruga bonny, thank you for reading and commenting with references to Scripture. However, if we use the same faulty, intellectual, human reasoning that you have used here and apply that to other gifts from God, we would reach incorrect conclusions. It is subtly misleading. The fact that God has the power to give us something of His does not give us the right to go and do the same to ourselves or put the same things on ourselves in the natural.

      God will give the righteous a crown with precious stones, but that does not mean I should go by a crown like that on earth and wear one. He has paved heaven with streets of gold and golden mansions but it doesn't give me license to have a house or driveway like that here on earth. He will also give thrones to the righteous, but I would not be right to buy a throne for myself and sit upon it. I could site many more examples, but these will suffice to make the point. Buying the property of satan and putting it on your own body is a worldly practice unlike when God gives us something of eternal worth and glory.

      He who has ears to hear what the Spirit says will hear what the Lord is saying in these divine revelations that reveal what is already written in His Word. Yes, it's in the Word if we care to believe what it says and put it to practice. I have covered this in Garments of Godliness and other articles. http://len-seekingthelord.blogspot.hu/2012/06/garments-of-godliness.html/

      http://len-seekingthelord.blogspot.hu/2014/01/carrying-your-cross-or-cross-dressing.html

      Only the Holy Spirit can convict a person of sin. And If someone comes under that conviction, it would not be wise for me to try and comfort the person with words of peace. (Mt 10:34). It is one thing for you to personally be skeptical about these testimonies, but be careful not to turn others away from hearing and responding to the Lord's message. "Therefore anyone who sets aside one of the least of these commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven." (Mt 5:19).

  41. I seek to understand: why did the Lord have the father give his prodigal son a ring if we are not to wear rings? Are only men to wear rings?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Dear Visitor, that is a parable, not an actual historical account. It is a short story meant to teach a lesson. The father in the story represents the Heavenly Father, God. The prodigal son represents the sinner away from God, who returns to the Father and repents of sin. God bestows things. In heaven he bestows crowns, robes, mansions, etc. This does not mean it is right for us to wear gold crowns or live in mansions here on earth, and reward ourselves with those things. Our reward is in heaven.

      You're stretching the parable too far/reading into it. There are many analogies that illustrate one point, but if you take them too far they lose their meaning. For example, one could incorrectly assume the parable of the ten virgins to mean that Jesus condoned polygamy. It would be adding to or reading into Scripture to allegorize parts of the story for further meaning.

      I suggest you read the following:
      http://eternal-destinations.blogspot.com/2015/01/james-agboola-revelation-of-heaven-and.html

      and

      http://eternal-destinations.blogspot.com/2015/01/the-marine-kingdom-and-queen-of-coast.html

      May I also add that you have an anonymous profile, which is blocked from public viewing, rather than state your name and show your picture. To me that is analogous to standing up in church with a bag over your head to ask a question publicly that challenges the preacher’s message. I am just saying that is the way it comes across over the internet, even if you did not intend to operate that way or send that message. I am naturally leery of people who are unwilling to identify themselves in a public forum. It builds trust when you let people know who you are.

    Thanks.

    1. Hi, James, this has come up before, about a year ago where a sister from S. Africa sent it to me and was confused by it. 1 John 4:1 says that we should test every spirit, so test the testimony and the messenger's spirit. I think that she should personally seek God about this.

      Although many points in the testimony seem quite true, I think it is confusing and things don't fully line up. He forbids pork, lobster, dove soap, and clothing made of polyester, wool, denim, camel’s hair, and many other kinds of animal skin such as goat skin. It seems to contradict the Word: Mk 7:14-23; Ac 11:9; 15:20; Col 2:14,16-23. John the Baptist wore clothing made of camel’s hair. The ancient, persecuted Christians wore goat skins and sheep skins (Heb 11:37). 2:14,16-23. etc.

      We are to weigh all testimonies against scripture. they must all be backed up by God's word. Why would God tell us not to eat pork when He has already stated in His word that all things have been made pure? And saying that wearing anything with denim material is a damnable sin has no scriptural backing at all. It is cotton.

      The testimony could say the truth about Linda Rika and others like Ezekiel Moses being sent by God and still be false in its contents. Someone has said, 'The devil can tell you a thousand truths just to get you to believe one lie.' 2 Cor 11:14-15 talks about the devil coming as an angel of light. If something is 99% in line with the bible and 1% contradicting, then it is not of God.

      1 Timothy 4:1-4 says to teach that certain foods are wrong to eat is a DEMONIC teaching. Beware of the devil's schemes in these last days. 1 Tim 2: 9- 10 says for women to dress modestly, and not to wear jewelry or expensive clothes. It does NOT say to abstain from certain materials of clothes.

      Even if dove soap is contaminated, it would be purified when we pray for it. God said to pray for everything because so much has been contaminated. God tells us that prayer makes everything clean, as long as it is not sinful. Using a particular soap will never be a sin, except in the case where that soap is a skin bleaching soap, since that would change a person's natural color to an artificial one. Other examples of things that cannot be cleansed through prayer are artificial hair, beer, satanic symbols on our clothing, satanic cartoon characters, etc.

      Because The Lord has given genuine revelations about holiness, satan will come up with every trick to confuse God's children. If it brings confusion, you shouldn't listen to it, because GOD IS NOT THE AUTHOR OF CONFUSION (1 Cor. 14: 33).

      I also noticed that the video has been highly edited. Many parts seem to be edited out of it. That is odd in my opinion. So I have a check about this one.
      Shalom!

    1. Dear sister Rose, thanks for reading and commenting. The issue is with any hair treatments that change a person's hair to make it unnatural. For example, when people with straight hair (such as Caucasians like me) get it "permed" meaning chemically treated and set with curls, so that it looks like curly hair. Another example if this is when people (such as Africans) with curly hair use a treatment that "relaxes" the hair unnaturally and/or get it straightened to look unnatural. The treatments make the hair so that it is not the way God created it to be naturally. So I am saying I don't advise people to do such things to their hair, because it is an insult to God who made it the way it is naturally. I hope that helps. Shalom!

  45. Mr Len Lacroix,

    I have enjoyed many of your posts on this blog.
    I was very convinced that these testimonies that jewelry, make-up, etc. will send you to hell are true and I started to avoid jewelry, make-up, wore skirts, etc.
    I even wanted to make a YouTube-Video about this topic to warn women so they won't go to hell wearing these things!
    So I decided to make this video but then the Lord showed me something.

    I read in the book "Revelations of heaven and hell" by Othusitse Mmusi. Othusitse is a man from Botswana and the Holy Spirit has been taking him to heaven and hell and he has had encounters with Jesus.

    Jesus told Othusitse that you will NOT be sent to hell for wearing jewelry, make-up, trousers, etc. As long as it is modest and doesn't become an idol you can use these things.
    There are spirits of deception who introduce these doctrines and once you believe these things other spirits like religious spirits can enter you and take you in bondage.

    Please Mr Lacroix, I encourage you to take a look at this book if you doubt that these revelations really come from Jesus.
    Take a look at pages 171-189 from "revelations of heaven and hell" by Othusitse Mmusi. (you can download it for free)

    there is also a Prophetess of the Lord, her Name is Susan Davis.
    The Lord also told her that These things will not send us to hell.

    There are also Korean Christians who had Encounters with Jesus, fought against demons and were taken to heaven and hell. They wrote their testimonies in a book called "Baptize by Blazing Fire".
    They also asked the Lord about this Topic and he told them that it will not send people to hell and that there are spirits of deception.

    Now I can assure you Mr Lacroix that Susan Davis, Othusitse Mmusi and these Korean Christians really hear from the Lord.

    I just wanted to warn you Mr Lacroix and all my Brothers and sisters who read this. Don't fall for this deception.

    1. Sister, no matter who says anything, we cannot accept it if it contradicts God's Word. The Word is the ultimate test, but there are other tests, such as the fruit test. I kindly refer you to the Word of God (Dt 22:5; 1 Tim 2:9-10; 1 Pe 3:3-6; Heb 12:14; Rom 12:1-2; Ex 33:1-6).

      Beware of anyone who tells you that sin is not sin, or that just a little bit of sin is ok, as long as it is in moderation. They will not be standing next to you at the judgment to speak for you. The Word of God will judge you, so it's best to know what the Word says.

    3. Sister, I have answered this question before & will try to do so again here for you. I have been to one of brother Yong Doo Kim's revival meetings, met him and his wife, read his books, received the holy fire, and believe his church's testimony about their 2005 experience. I love and respect that pastor.

      However, no matter who has had a genuine divine revelation, that does not make that person the infallible authority on every issue in the church today. People who have revelations do not know everything and are not God. We know in part and prophesy in part (1 Cor 13:9). Don't think of such people as incapable of making a mistake in their judgment about a matter or discernment on an issue. Don't look at them as if God would not give a revelation on any topic to anyone else without also revealing it to these people. They each receive the revelation the Lord in His sovereignty chooses to give them according to His will. But they do not have a corner on all truth. Like the rest of us, they need to read the Bible, put it into practice, and also receive what the Lord reveals through genuine revelations that He gives to other servants of His around the world. These people cannot ignore the rest of the Body of Christ.

      "But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him. And if they were all one member, where were the body? But now are they many members, yet but one body. And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you. (1 Co 12:18-21).

      I have carefully read and prayerfully evaluated the statements made by others who say that all the divine revelations about godly attire and adornment are not from God but from the devil. That is simply not true and also ignores the plain teaching of Scripture on this topic. So you can believe what you want, but I have warned you. Rev 3:11. Farewell.

  47. I believe the revelations, but I need answers to specific questions. I
    really need and desperately desire to have my own personal experience
    with my creator. I've asked for it this night, and I pray he grants me
    audience cos i have many specific questions and clarifications that I
    need from Him. This matter of heaven and hell is not something to joke
    with. I'd rather be told that it wasn't necessary on the Last day, than that I didn't make it just cos i had earrings which i could easily have done away with. The issues mentioned by the women are generic. Are hair attachments limited to just weavon, attachments, wool, and wigs? How about thread? Thread is also an attachment. What does God (not church doctrine) have to say about thread? What of hair accessories like hair bands, pins etc. Then, how about gel? I've been on my natural hair now for 6 months, and we have gel for natural hair. It's just a holding product for the natural hair. For instance, when twisting my hair, i apply it, then I untwist after it's dried, and it still stays together cos of d holding product. Will God penalize me for that? How about normal hair cream, it softens the hair so u're able to comb. If gel isn't allowed, then hair cream should not be. Then, we go to perfume, does this include ordinary deodorant? How about body cream, it has perfume too. Also, is ordinary powder part of make-up. I understand that i should cover my hair when i'm in God's
    presence, does that mean i should cover my hair all day cos God's
    presence is every where. Pls get down to the specifics. I desperately
    want to make heaven, and i'm working on both my inward and outward self. Pls, my questions are not to generate strife or argument, i just need
    clarification cos all sins are sins. It won't profit me if i stopped earrings but had thread on my hair, not knowing dat it's an attachment. Thanks. Btw, pls join me in asking Christ to invite me on a date with Him. I really need answers to many specific questions about life and issues, it'ld help me in evangelizing more effectively.

    1. Dear sister Gloria. In a word, avoid being worldly and artificial. Rather be natural and holy, the way God intended. As you seek him, he will show you the answers. I encourage you to read the revelations of the Mushala sisters, posted here on this blog. Here are some other articles that will help you, too:

  51. I tesify to their testimonies regarding women's dressings and use of artificial hear, make up and so on, that their testimonies are true. I had a personal experience. The Lord told me to get rid of all of them including perfumes, jeweries, wedding rings and so on. I am worshipping God in my natural form. i am loving it. My natural hair is very thick and coarse but I wash it with vinegar and it softens and I am able to manage it. May God reveal the truth to all of you in doubt and may He open your eyes to see and your heart to understand the truth. Satan is a liar, I love God more than all these. I am here to please God and not to please myself or others. God bless you.

  52. Br.Len I am sorry for making this inquiry for the second time because the 1st time i did not get the answer But this time i made copy and paste of this statement from this article. " I would like to add one brief note about relaxing the hair. This is something that applies only to people with naturally curly hair, like the African hair type, which is typically very strong with naturally tight curls. There is a treatment that relaxes this type of hair in an unnatural way." My question is; WHAT IS THAT TREATMENT THAT RELAXES THIS TYPE OF HAIR IN AN UNNATURAL WAY. Please i need help to maintain this hair. May God bless you for any guidance. Rose

  53. Dear Len,
    I am Mrs Alex and thank God for coming across this blog, I believe that its from the Lord, the everlasting Love He has for us and tells us these things to change our ways. I am willing to change because i desire to enter His heaven to see His promises of the many rooms he went to make for us who believe. I go to a church in KENYA, under the ministry of REPENTANCE AND HOLINESS www.repentandpreparetheway.org you can read more and follow on whats happening in Kenya massive revival of the end time ministry- where all these things are taught, women rebuked for dressing in the 'modern way',mini skirts in church, sexual sin every time we are rebuked and that is when as a young woman i resolved to change for Lord, to dress holy, even braiding and hair attachments that i have read above have been rebuked in our church.but i am an African as you said, we have tough hair i still kept braiding since its hard to maintain it, i thought i was young and only pastors should cover their heads since in our church all pastors in all branches all over Kenya and abroad cover their heads, i kept hoping this wasnt for me. I am sure many young women feel what i felt, but today after reading this article from all these witnesses i want to change, even cut my hair if need be to a size i can manage.

    I have an important question in regards to what i have read from Racheal Mushala and her sister- about cartoons and animations. I am married and we have a young son 21months and recently since he like watching tv, we downloaded christian baby songs for him,worship and praise, we also came across a tv station that has the nursery rhymes songs, ABC songs,numbers songs just educative and the famous teletabbies which he Loves watching them.non of the cartoons named but Racheal said the Lord dint show her everything did we make a wrong decision that would affect our child's eternity? please your reply on an opinion is important to us. since one way or another baby will want to watch how can we know whats best if even christian cartoons are demonic? are the nursery rhymes ok?

  54. Dear Mrs. Alex, thanks for reading and commenting. Praise the Lord if this little article has helped you find out what pleases the Lord.

    As for cartoons and animated productions, I think we need to be very careful. Our adversary the devil is very crafty. We already know that many of these videos are demonic, even so-called Christian ones. So we should be very wary of these things. Be prayerful and watchful, avoiding the appearance of evil. I would stay away from teletubbies, which are asexual aliens, and the purple one originally played by a male comedian went around carrying a purse and sometimes wearing a tutu skirt like female ballet dancers wear. We have also stay away from nursery rhymes and our children have never suffered for it. If you feel you have let your child watch something that you now realize you shouldn't have, then the first step is to go before the Lord and repent, ask forgiveness, and ask Him to break off your child anything evil that they received through the program. We also made some mistakes about letting our children watch things like Barbies etc when they were younger. You may also lay hands on your child and pray over him/her. Plead the blood of Jesus and ask the Lord to cleanse the child of anything that came from the enemy through ungodly programming, and break it off your child in the powerful name of Jesus.

    I suggest explaining to your child from Scripture in a simple way the reason why we must avoid watching such videos. If your child is old enough to know right from wrong, then you should lead him/her in repentance to the Lord, asking the Lord's forgiveness for taking part. And then it is your responsibility to get rid of those things and remove all access the child may have to watching them.

    Shalom!

Please help us.

  56. Dear Mrs Alex, we do not own a TV. As for the subject matter, I think it would be best to ask these questions on an article that covers the subject matter, since this is off topic, and it would be more beneficial to others who read the comments. Shalom!

  57. Good day every one,
    I am really happy and excited on this topic because it seems like many people have been deceived in believing so many things which are contrary to God’s Word. What exactly did God say about this issue and what is His stand? We have read and heard so many things about this issue but it seems like we are not getting it all clear. One Pastor tells us one thing and another tells us another thing; and then, we are all confused and then begin to ask: Which One is Truth? But, my question where can we find the actual Truth? And can we know that it is truth?
    When a question is asked, such as, One plus One, some may say three while other may say five, some may even say eleven, while others may say minus two. Despite all these answers, I know and believe that there is but one answer (which is two) and that is Truth. And whenever we hear the truth, we would know.
    I have read most of the Post and arguments on this page concerning this topic and some are against wearing of trousers, others are saying that wearing trousers by women is not wrong, while some are saying it depends on region or location. In fact, it leaves my head bubbling why all these confusions.
    By the special of God we shall go back to the reference and consider why God gave that command and for what purpose; or Is there another intention in the heart of God when He made that statement in Deut. 22:5? Did God just said it because He needed to fill the Bible with Words that do not Matter or did He just jokingly said it because he needed to say something? Many people may argue this fact but whenever God speaks, or whenever God says anything be it simple or with a thundering voice, It is of eternal weight and we should not take it lightly? The Issue of our dressing and appearance mattered to God. I read some say that our outward appearance does not matter and that God is interested in heart. How did you know that our outward appearance didn't matter to God?

    ReplyDelete
  58. I also read some argue that we should show them where it is in the Bible that God says that Women wearing Trouser is a sin. So until it is written in the Bible we should ignore the Truth. Then, I may as well ask them simple questions: Is Exam Malpractice in the Bible? Is child trafficking in the Bible? I guess we all know the answers to these simple questions. But, they not being in the Bible does it make them right? I guess not. If the Bible should contain all the evil in this world, we would have a book that may have more than One Billion Pages because this world is filled with as much evil in it as the people living in it. That is why God gave us an Image (that is, His Image) so that we can look through a mirror to judge what is right or wrong as we live.
    I think the problem is that all of us are looking for things to suite us. We have decided to shut our eyes and ears to the Truth - which is always bitter. Truth is bitter but Truth is better.
    So, if I get the argument here better. Some are saying that women wearing Trousers is Right and It never mattered to God. Then I will ask another question: Why did God mention it? Why did God speak to His Chosen People about this topic in this manner? If God is not interested in our dressing, then why speaking on it? Why did God gave it as a command to His Chosen People? I guess we all need to take God's Word serious because He said in Isaiah 55v11 - So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; It will not return to Me empty, Without accomplishing what I desire, And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it. Matthew 24:55 also gave us an injunction where Jesus (Himself) stated the importance of God's Word: "Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will never pass away." If God is willing to roll away Heaven and Earth just because of His Word - One Word, Then we should take every single Word of God Serious. Why are we arguing about a statement made by God and begin to justify our own selfish and humanly ideologies? Don't you all know that the wisdom of men is like a filthy rag before God or do you suppose that God would reduce His Standard because of man? I don't think so. We better make haste while the sun shines. We better make the right decision before it is too late and then we would regret it in Hell Fire crying if I had known.

  59. God said in Deut.22v5
    (1) A woman must not wear men's clothing, nor a man wear women's clothing, for the LORD your God detests anyone who does this. From The New International Version.
    (2) "A woman must not put on men's clothing, and a man must not wear women's clothing. Anyone who does this is detestable in the sight of the LORD your God. From The New Living Translation.
    (3) A woman shall not wear a man’s garment, nor shall a man put on a woman’s cloak, for whoever does these things is an abomination to the LORD your God. From The English Standard Version.
    (4) The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God. From The Kings James Version.
    These statements are made up of Words not just One Word and they came out from Gods mouth. Would God allow His Words to be thrown to the dust and not make it to come to past? I guess not. If you refuse this portion of the scripture and believe the rest, are you not a hypocrite. Choosing the ones that best fits you and rejecting (neglecting) the ones that do not fit you; Is that not hypocrisy?
    Please we should have a rethink and understand the Scriptures as God says it. By the way, who said that God had no standard? You better what you speak and guard yourself well because every vain word a man speaks in this world without any strong biblical backup he will answer on the Judgment day.
    (1) If our universities and colleges of Education have standard or criteria that you must meet before you enter them, then God should have a standard that you must meet before you enter Heaven.
    (2) If a company and job hiring institutions have a standard you must meet before they hire you, then God must have a Standard that you must meet before He will hire you to take part in His Kingdom.
    (2)If playing any game has rules and regulations and laws that every player must meet before a medal is given Him or Her, the God would have rules and regulations and laws that everyone seeking a medal from Him must meet before it would be given Him.
    Man knows the importance of laws and we expect that God doesn't know the importance of laws. I think we missed it somewhere. There is no argument whatsoever we may have to justify ourselves of this Truth. There are standards that we must meet in every aspect of our lives: Internal and External. God is interested in all and in every aspect of our lives; both physical appearance (dressing), spiritual appearance (holiness and righteousness), dealings with people (relationship with men) and our service to Him (Relationship with God) and others. We must not under-estimate God's Word just to suite us.
    If I may ask, how do you know men's clothe and women's clothe? Simple. What is the approved clothe for men to wear? Simple, His top and His trousers. What is the approved clothe for women to wear? Simple, Her top and skirts. Why the argument? Trousers are meant for men while skirts are meant for women. How many men have you seen wear skirt? No man. Even the countries that were referenced here to be wearing gowns and agbada and so on; you will observe that there were no universal standard then in those days. There is a standard now - trousers for men, skirts for women. Every responsible woman knows that. Every responsible men knows that. Then, why are we arguing? Our arguments are baseless and clueless. We are only trying to say something that will suite us. God's word on this issue is clear. No Woman should wear that which pertains to a man, and a man should not wear that which pertains to a woman. A one and simple command which God will use to judge every one including me and you.
    By the way, will you lose anything if you dress modestly? You will lose Nothing.

  60. Since you are not sure if God permits women to wear men's dressing or men to wear women's dressing, why not women wear their own dressing and men their own dressing and stay on a safer side? If you cross over to eternity and you realize that God holds that as a standard you will still be safe because you did what was right. But if you assume in this world that women should wear men's dressing and then you die one day and getting there you found out that you were wrong and you will have no opportunity to return to amend your ways, then you will be doomed forever and ever.
    So, my simple advice is this. Stay on a safer side and do what is right so that nothing will stand against you. Please, do not try to make a mistake which others made and are now regretting it in hell.
    Well, many will still argue with these facts but remember, you not believing it can never reduce God's Standard which is clear; Not believing it can never reduce the flames in Hell Fire; Not believing it will not change the Truth which is in the Word of God. Get that into your memory and let it continue to ring in your memory. I pray that this message of Truth and Light will make a serious impact in your life today in Jesus Name. Amen.
    I am not ashamed of the Gospel and I am not ashamed of Truth. I am not ashamed of Gods message because even though I am not perfect, yet I know that God is still working out His Plans in my Life. If you have any questions or comments please reach me on my email: seekingthetruth2016@hotmail.com . I will be pleased to reply you as soon as I can. God Bless us all and Help us to finish well. Amen.

    1. Thanks, brother T. You made some excellent points. I suggest that you start your own article on your own blog about this and leave a new comment with the link to it, as these four comments are truly long enough to be an article, and in my opinion are a bit too long to be in the comments section of this article. If you agree to do so, then you would have a greater impact with what you are trying to say, and you could link back to this article as well. So it would influence more people. If you decide to do so, I will leave the one comment with your link and remove these long ones. God bless you!

  61. Sisters in christ, be honest with yourself. Are you truly dressing to please God? Or are you dressing to please yourself? When I truly gave my heart to Christ, I started to think seriously about my life. I told him I wanted to change on the inside and outside. From there, the Lord started to convict me. I realized I dressed indecently, (tight pants, cleavage exposed, makeup, jewelry, high heels) because I was insecure and wanted attention from MEN. We have to be honest here. I wanted to stand out, look better than other women. Not b/c I wanted to please God. When God created us, he saw that it was good. So why are we changing ourselves? After that,I came across multiple testimonies abt this. Then verses in the Bible. At first, the enemy tried to pull me back, so I almost went back to it. I asked God again, and i got attacked 3x in one night for bringing that stuff back into my home. People look at me weird now, but God is teaching me not to care. Follow King Jesus, not the world. If you are uncertain abt this, dont seek man. ask God to show you the truth.
