CHRISTIAN SISTERS:.....COVER YOUR BODY - Satan is Seeking to Expose your Nakedness!

TEEN.jpg


Christians dressing is mentioned in  Romans 12:1, 1 Timothy 2:9, 10, 1 Peter 3:3, 4.



The reason why I often comment on the appearance of sisters in the church is because a good advice does not hurt.  It could also help a young believer, who is eager to amend her dress code in line with what the scriptures consider to be moderate. 

It is meant help our sisters realize that worldly dressing does not glorify God, but the devil.  Many people know that like attract like, so a scanty dressed lady will attract mostly people possessed with the spirit of lust and not born again children of God.  This is why matured sisters ready for marriage have no business with scanty dressing or generally dressing to please her flesh. If she is seduced to follow the worldly dress code, she will end up with an unbeliever as a husband.

It's clear that the devil is seeking people he would advertise their body in the open for the world to see. This is the reason why today's fashion is towards nakedness.  If the lady's 'treasures' are not exposed, and her skirt is not slit to reveal her underwear, such a lady is old fashioned. For Christian singles, one of the prices to pay this end-time, is to glorify the Lord in your dressing according to Romans 12:1-2.

The enemy is doing so much havoc to the society in the name of fashion.  Men are attracted by what they see, so the sight of a naked woman, only a few men can look away. The devil is using the display of nakedness to deceive and destroy the faith and moral standing of the world.

The strategy is to have many people walk naked to make it look as if walking naked is normal for humans.  Those who have been caught in this shameful act tell you there is no big deal in walking or appearing naked.  Meanwhile, it is the highest level of degradation of the human body. It also enrolls such people into secret covenant with the Queen of the Coast - that stubborn marine spirit.

Have you wondered why most celebrities momentarily forget themselves and go naked?  It is a covenant they have with the devil! Once they do that, they are possessed by Marine spirit and enter into secret covenant with the Queen of the Coast to dishonour her body continually. 

Those celebrities that Satan is promoting their music or talent must go naked, in order to create the impression that nakedness is trendy and good.  These are usually celebrities with large follower-ship and some upcoming ones desperate to get to the top quick.

Therefore, Sisters who think they can compete with worldly ladies in fashion should have a re-think.  Dressing like the world would spell trouble for a god fearing believer and such a woman will hardly be able to dignify herself in her dressing.  The scriptures warned believers to beware of friendship with the world.  Any one who visits Walmart Stores in the US will understand what I am talking about. Few people started it some years back, but today...it has become normal for people to go to Walmart scanty, half naked and most recently fully naked to buy things.  The devil is behind this!



The world fashion of today is fashioned to fulfill the purpose of displaying the nakedness of people and every child of God should learn how to carry their body in dignity and honour, presently their body a living sacrifice, free from sin as temples of the Holy Ghost 1 Cor 6:19-20.
  
Scriptural Perspective
As people who have been enlightened by the Word of God, we can briefly look at some perspectives of christian dressing and factors that inform some of the dressing we see our lady wear to church.

The youth are the worse group in church weird dressing because of peer pressure and they cannot seem to be in any kind of conflict.  They are expressing their youth and exciting themselves with the latest fashion they see among their groups. 

The matured single ladies - will dress according to their maturity level in the faith and the level of worldly exposure they have had.  There are many issues in which some young believers think that a woman will always be a woman.  One of such is the dresses they wear to church.  Every woman loves attention and the church is a public places where people of all classes gather, so most women would ordinarily want to look their best.

It is now a question of how spirit filled a woman is, as well as the pressure under which she is operating.  A matured lady who is still single will naturally attract more attention with her dresses than another lady married with kids.  The married woman is pleased with her husband's appreciation of her modest dressing to church, while the single lady probably under pressure to impress her admirers.

A spirit filled single knows that the reason she is not married is not because of her dressing.  She knows that dressing has nothing to do with her getting married and thus trying to impress people will also achieve nothing.  It is her inner-man that she should nourish with the word of God and christian virtues of a woman.

SHOULD ANYTHING GO - NO!

The Bible states it clear from Old Testament that God is not delighted in His children exposing their nakedness. From Genesis, God made the first clothing for humanity after they fell into sin and were sent out of the Garden of Eden. The LORD God made the clothing with animal for a purpose - to cover their nakedness. So from here the primary purpose of clothing, of dressing, is to cover our nakedness. 

All senses will agree with this, spiritually, physically, philosophically and mentally; that we wear clothes primarily to cover our nakedness. So when a person wears clothes and the nakedness is not properly covered, the person is not just being fashionable but working against God’s natural purpose; that is ungodly.

When a Christian who has the knowledge of the Almighty God claims that she is dressing not to cover her body but for fashion, that Christian is a spiritual baby. The Bible admonishes us in Romans 12:1, to present our bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God. What does that means? 

God is interested in how you present your body as well your heart. God will not accept half naked presented body. How you present your body is more important to God than the sacrifice you present. He told Moses that the children of Israel should be careful so that their nakedness is not exposed, because that might attracts God’s wrath. Exodus 20:26

Biblical Perspectives
So what are the Biblical standards for dressing for godly women? The answer is that a godly, regenerated woman can wear anything as long as it goes along with biblical perspectives:

1. Moderation
The standard of the Bible is not anything goes permissive styles neither is it conservative legalism, Bible standard is MODERATION! One of the attributes of Christianity is moderation. Moderation in everything: how you live, what you say, what you eat, what you drink, how you dress, what you wear, car you ride, house you live in, what you use and so on. When you are in Christ, you don’t show off your self, because you are dead to the flesh. You don’t show your body, your riches, your pride; you show Christ and Him alone. 

2. Well covered: When you give your life to Jesus and living a new life in Him, you are not controlled by the world fashion's sense, you are not dressing to belong or please yourself, you dress primarily to cover your body as a living sacrifice to God. Because you realize your body is a temple of Holy Spirit. Anything you wear must cover you well. How? Your skirts must reach below your knees; your shirts must well cover your breasts; any tops, gowns, etc. 

Your wears on top must not show the trace of your breasts if you bend down and your underwear must be under, not over. That is the meaning of well-covered dress. If a Christian woman wears a cloths that doesn't cover her knees, that the trace of her breasts can be seen, that people can see any of her under wears outside, she does not present her body as a holy temple of God, she is defiling God’s temple.

3. Not Transparent:   Any clothing you wear as a godly woman must not be transparent or evaporated that your under wears will be seen. Since the purpose of wearing clothes is the cover your nakedness, wearing transparent or evaporated clothes has defeated that God’s purpose in such woman's life. Wearing transparent, evaporated clothes is an indirect nakedness and disobedience to God; it is as bad as half naked. As a Christian, godly woman, you are watchful of what you wear and how you wear them so that you are not disqualified by God just because of your dress-style.

4. No Tights:  If you are wearing skirts, gowns, shirts, native dress, self made, uniforms, whatever, where ever, it must not be tight. Wearing tight clothes that shows the shape and anatomy of your body to the world is also an indirect nakedness. You wear clothes to cover your body not to show your body shape. When the motive is to show the shape of your body then something it wrong, it is called inordinate motive. A godly woman does not dress to show the shape of her body, so body hugs and all sorts of tight clothing are ungodly and can lead to damnation and condemnation of one’s soul at the end.

5. Not Too Expensive - Modest to your ability:  Either a woman or a man, as a child of God, Bible directly warns us not to buy, wear expensive clothing, not because you can’t afford it but because you are a Christian, modest. Christianity is all about modesty, and staying within your means.  When you have more than enough, then you must desist from showing-off your riches and becoming self centred.  You should rather share willingly what you have with others, especially those that need help.


Beloved, there are many spirits speaking to people today, asking them to do the wrong things - Suicide, divorce, kill and destroy.  But the Spirit of God guides you to the right choices and tells you things to come. 

That Spirit of God comes into your life when you give your heart to Jesus. He will give you a new life, victory and eternal life.  Will you accept Him today?

Say this Prayer: 
Lord Jesus I come to you as a sinner.
I am sorry for my sins, forgive me.
I believe you died for my sins, and was raised for my justification. 
Come into my heart be my Lord and Saviour, 
Give me the grace to serve You in truth and spirit. 
Thank You for saving my soul - I am born again!

His grace be with you all.
