DAMNABLE CLOTHING AND ADORNMENT
Wednesday, December 9
1 Peter 3:3-5
"3 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.
5 For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands:"
"But I say unto you, that whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart."
Ignorance of doctrinal truth is the main reason why many in the church today claim they are at liberty to dress as they please. Ladies dress in provocative ways that seduce men to lust and sin. Women adorn themselves with make-up, jewelry, ornaments, attachments, wigs and different kinds of artificial things to attract others to themselves, rather than to Jesus Christ our Lord. They wear short skirts, short gowns, trousers, pants and decorate their eyes and hair with all kinds of artificial materials, which have seductive influence on men.
The men are not left behind in this matter. Today we see young men, even the elderly ones wearing earrings, necklaces, chains, rings etc. We also have the married ones wearing wedding rings. The use of engagement and wedding rings is an unscriptural human tradition which defiles the believer before God. These are all against the scriptures and are damnable. They tattoo themselves, maintain ungodly hair-cut, expose their under wears and come to church without the slightest reproof from their parents and pastors.
Cleanse yourself from jewelry and ungodly adornment which includes the following:
a) Artificial smells and perfumes on the body.
b) Use of artificial hair, attachment and weave-on.
c) Perming of the hair.
d) Dyeing and colouring of hair.
e) Use of wool and shining fashion thread.
f) Use of Cortex and lipsticks.
g) Body bleaching and painting.
h) Women using restrictively masculine wears.
i) Men using restrictively feminine wears.
j) Use of earrings, chains, necklace, beads, bracelets, pearls.
Thought for the day:
Cleanse yourself from jewelries and ungodly adornment
Song for the day:
Holiness unto the Lord is our watchword and song
Bible reading for the day:
Hosea 1-4; Jude
