TEXT: ROMANS 12:1-2
(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.
KEY VERSE: 1 PETER 1:14-16
As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.
Should women plait or weave their hair? There is the braiding that is ungodly which worldly women do. When you see them, you know that it is the spirit of the world. There is the hairdo of women professing godliness which has nothing to do with the fashions of the world. It does not affect the person who wears it. Satanic business is not there. She does not take glory in it at all. It does not entice people as a center of attraction. It is not done to achieve cosmetic beauty. It is only a way of dressing your hair. It is a kind of plaiting aimed at keeping the hair of women long. Plaiting your hair like that helps you to get this long hair that the Bible says is a glory to women.
The people of the world use various methods on the hair to achieve beauty according to the fashions of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now works in the children of disobedience. These are the harlots, the wayward and the backsliders that walk according to the dictates of this world. If you see them, you should know them by their fruit. That which women do normally that does not affect their Christian profession; the Lord is not fighting you on it. The microphone can be used to promote both good and evil. The use to which you put it shall be known by the fruit it produces. If a woman is allowed to keep her hair without plaiting, it won’t achieve the long hair which the Lord said is for her glory. What the Lord fights against is long artificial hair. The braided hair stands for this artificial hair. It is a word that stands for all corruptions of the hair which changes from one style to another through generations. As at the time of writing the Bible, the women were plaiting long gold-plaited hair with all kinds of substances attached to it as in the case of mother of harlots in Revelation 17. Dressing to promote beauty for the purpose of immorality is what God is against. Any hairdo that is after the fashions of this world is forbidden.
