JESUS IS COMING..........AMEND YOUR WAYS

I am a Christian! Can I wear a muslim dress? – ANNAH HARIRI



AMEND YOUR WAYS

Introduction

Believers are called to be different for good, among the sons of men.  The difference I am talking about is within and without.  Within talks about the inner beauty of the spirit man, while without is glorifying of the Lord with our outward behaviour and appearance.

Appearance is a simple measure of peace and comfort.  A troubled man can hardly dress well.  Many times the troubles a person is going through can be seen from their look and appearance, as well as their countenance.  Your dressing shows the state of your mind and the spirit controlling the person at that time.  This is why you can distinguish a Believer from others from their appearance.

Christians have chosen to look different because God commanded us to be different and holy unto Him.  So, our dressing each time should glorify the Lord, and minister to others that godly appearance is golden.

The scripture says: “Do not love this world nor the things it offers you, for when you love the world, you do not have the love of the Father in you. For the world offers only a craving for physical pleasure, a craving for everything we see, and pride in our achievements and possessions. These are not from the Father, but are from this world. And this world is fading away, along with everything that people crave. But anyone who does what pleases God will live forever.” (1 John 2:15-17)

Godly dressing is Golden

There are many ways Christian fraternize with the world, one of them being in dressing.  What is the purpose of exposing your chest as a Man to show the chain necklace you are wearing?  What is the purpose of exposing your body if you are a woman, whom God has wonderfully made?  

You don't need to add to yourself or modify your body to please yourself or friends.  You don't need to expose your body to the public in order to get anything good, be it husband, job or business, for the Bible says that every good and perfect gift comes from God.

In the world today, if you dress to 'seduce' people around you, you are no longer different from the world, and it will be difficult for you to win souls.  “You are the light of the world. A city built on a hill cannot be hidden. No one after lighting a lamp puts it under the bushel basket… in the same way, let your light shine before others.” (Matthew 5:14-16)

While we should find our own individual balance between trend and tradition, we should never forget who we are in Christ.  We are a 'Called out people' unto the Lord, a chosen generation, and so what we do and how we appear in public are all very important.  Our dressing and appearance should glorify the Lord.

Good News of Salvation and Repentance
We have here wonderful stories of brothers and sisters who have received the revival fire of God in their spirit, and so have decided to repent of their wrong ways of dressing.  They have decided to focus on their inner man to develop their spirit man and be heaven bound.  

1. First Testimony - A Sister

Transformed by Christ, glory to God!

The lady in the picture showed pictures of her old self and her new self and testified that with the one captioned 'today', she has given herself to Christ.

She shared the pictures with the caption 'before' and 'today' and she wrote "thank you, Jesus, for showing me mercy. Make me holy inwardly and outwardly O Lord".

2nd Testimony - A Brother

Transformed by Christ, glory to God!

All these youths have a wonderful story to tell the world.  By their dressing, they are saying 'I  have met the Lord and Saviour of my life'.  By their dressing, they are also saying they have separated themselves from the world, and they are not ready to touch the unclean things anymore.

3rd Testimony - A Sister

Transformed by Christ, glory to God!

This is good news, which cannot be told any other way.  All the before and after pictures here are glorious youths the |Lord has touched their lives deeply that their repentance is evident for all to see, at least looking through their appearance.

4th Testimony - A Brother

Transformed by Christ, glory to God!

Remember that every clothing shows the spirit in control of the person, and every dressing choice has the power to make your light shine brighter or dimmer.  

5th Testimony - A mother
Transformed by Christ, glory to God!

Mothers are not left out.  Nobody receives the Lord and remain the same, including your dressing or appearance. These brothers and sister want to make their salvation statement loud and clear for all to see,  and Fireinthebone congratulates them.

Time for Change - Jesus is coming!
I want to encourage our brethren who are still hiding their faith through the way they dress to have a change of heart.  The following examples of public dressing and conduct should not be mentioned among the saints of the Lord.

2 Bible Verses On How a Christian Woman Should Dress - Opera News ...

The Bible encourages us to focus more on the inner self and less on our outward appearance.  It says in 1 Tim 2:8-10 that: “Women should dress themselves modestly and decently in suitable clothing, not with their hair braided, or with gold, pearls, or expensive clothes, but with good works.” (1 Timothy 2:8-10)

Apostle Peter encouraged women to focus on their inner self.  He says: “Let your adornment be the inner self with the lasting beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit.” (1 Peter 3:4).

Sisters that dress in this way may be looking like a chick, but they are not.  Every born-again sister is a daughter of Zion, whose life and dressing should announce the goodness of the Lord.

With a dress like that, No sister can win a single soul, for the dressing is telling people that you have not yet known the Lord.  

If this is your dressing, repent and dress better!

Daughters of Zion should avoid dresses like this one because it could make people regard them as an unbeliever, sometimes a woman of easy virtues.  You should avoid putting your body on display, for you are not merchandise for sale.  

Other women can dress in the way that pleases the devil, but you are no longer in the world, You have been called out of the world, please be separate.

Dresses like this will surely keep your weak brothers lusting and confused for sometimes, meanwhile, you have gone to your house.  What they saw in your body on display will keep playing in their mind for some days.  This could cause a stumbling block for their faith in God, which is not good.  If this is your dressing, repent and dress better!

Youths can do better.  Dressings to the house of God or even elsewhere should be godly and simple.  It should glorify the Lord and not the devil.  Once it does not, you have failed.  But, you can do it better again and again until it becomes your way of life.  If this is your dressing, repent and dress better!

Believers do not wrap themselves in this order.  Child of God, let your dressing glorify the Lord.  Some pictures are those women modelling outfits, so don't think everyone is wearing short dresses.  It is not true. 

Born-again Christians are different, they are not wearing those dresses.  If this is your dressing, repent and dress better!

AMAZING STORIES AROUND THE WORLD: 'And Lead Us Not Into Temptation ...

Again, dresses like the one above draw the attention of men and women in the church to the lady instead of God.  This is evil.  The provocative nature of dresses like this can make weak men remember their old lives and girlfriends.  

The house of God deserves better appearance, and I want to appeal to ladies to fear the Lord and desist from dresses like this one.  People come to worship God and to be blessed, they should not be restricted by works of the flesh.  This does not glorify God in any way.  It glorifies the devil, who uses the Flesh and lust to work against righteousness and holy living.

When a sister dresses like this, one thing is clear, the spirit in charge of her life at that moment is not the spirit of God.  It is the spirit of worldliness, Lust, Seduction, and Lasciviousness etc.  The woman is certainly in need of deliverance prayers to restore her to the Lord. If this is your dressing, repent and dress better!

Danger Dresses - Not for Christians!

 

No Born-Again sister or brother should reduce him or herself to this level of dressing.  We are not led by the spirit of error.  We are not led by the spirit of the world, so please keep off.


No child of God should wear turned jeans or thorn clothes.  Why should you wear any of these if you are controlled by the Spirit of God?  Don't try it!

CONCLUSION
Brethren, the King (JESUS CHRIST) is coming.  If you have not received Him as your Lord and Saviour, your dressing cannot be different from the world.  Receive Him today.  

Confess your sins to God in prayer and ask Jesus to come into your heart and reign as Lord and Saviour.

1. Give your life to Jesus Christ.
2. Repent from every known sin and confess them to the Lord
3. Receive the baptism of the Holy Ghost.
4. Love the Word of God and study it daily and obey what it says.
5. Live a holy life, run from sin and every appearance of evil.
