TEXT: NUMBERS 31:49-51
49 And they said unto Moses, Thy servants have taken the sum of the men of war which are under our charge, and there lacketh not one man of us.
50 We have therefore brought an oblation for the Lord, what every man hath gotten, of jewels of gold, chains, and bracelets, rings, earrings, and tablets, to make an atonement for our souls before the Lord.
51 And Moses and Eleazar the priest took the gold of them, even all wrought jewels.
Key verse: Zephaniah 1:8 “And it shall come to pass in the day of the LORD’s sacrifice, that I will punish the princes, and the king’s children, and all such as are clothed with strange apparel”
Christians are holy people worshipping the holy God. Those who have not attained
this standard are regarded as unholy Christians. Which category do you belong to?
Unholy Christians lack complete knowledge of the word of God and are full of
arguments. The holy ones understand God’s demands and do all to comply with
them. They are conscious of the coming of the Lord and moderate their lifestyle; not
willing to offend God. In line with God’s warning against Christians exposing their
nakedness through ungodly dressing and adornment which give rise to lust and
immorality in the society, they avoid dressing according to the custom or style of the
world which are against the modesty required by the scripture.
The following articles for artificial beauty are condemned by the scripture: Jewels
of gold, chains, and bracelets, rings, including wedding rings, nose rings, earrings
and tablets. Fixing them is unclean regardless of their costs. Besides, who asked you
to perforate your ears? Other evil practices include bleaching, fixing false nails, false
hair, eyelash, painting lips, eyebrows, nails, face, adding wool to make your hair
look big, keeping long nails, wearing perforated lace and see-through dresses, tight-
fitting dress or body hug and women wearing trousers.
Zephaniah 1:8 “And it shall come to pass in the day of the LORD’s sacrifice, that I
will punish the princes, and the king’s children, and all such as are clothed with
strange apparel”. Repent and change your garment from strange ones. If you say
there are women trousers, does it mean there are men’s head ties or brassier? Mothers
should avoid putting ungodly attires on their children in the quest to make them
beautiful. Don’t perforate their ears to fix earrings on them. Don’t bleach their skin
or fix wool on their hair; they are abomination in the sight of God.
Thought for the day: Repent and change your strange garments to godly ones
Song for the day: Purify me, sanctify me, purify me, O Lord
Bible reading for the day: Lamentations 3-5; Hebrews 8
