Bride Prep - Honoring Divine Order - Headcovering and Hair Length

With less than 4 weeks remaining before Yom Teruah opens this most notable Shemittah, the focus of attention here has continued to be on the spiritual and not yet the physical. I haven't posted much but I've been pressing in with the same level of intensity. I'm still trying to catch up on email, so please be patient. I've been blessed to meet so many more saints who have shared amazing testimonies of what the Lord has been doing and is now doing. This is a truly amazing season!

Personally, I've been very focused on the subject of head covering and hair length, the subjects of 1 Corinthians 11. I had studied this years ago but was recently led to revisit the subject, beginning with the thematic structure of the passage (like I presented recently with Matthew 24 and Genesis 9). Wow! What I had already thought was a big deal was confirmed yet further as the Lord gave me even more insight into the passage!

Some think hair and hats are of no account, and that's really naivé, spiritually. It deals directly with honoring divine order and authority and this has benefits of many kinds, not the least of which involves spiritual warfare. In contrast, dishonoring divine authority and order is going to go badly. This is a matter of holy conduct and godliness in contrast to lawlessness.

10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, in which the heavens will pass away with a roar and the elements will be destroyed with intense heat, and the earth and its works will be burned up. 11 Since all these things are to be destroyed in this way, what sort of people ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, 12 looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be destroyed by burning, and the elements will melt with intense heat! 13 But according to His promise we are looking for new heavens and a new earth, in which righteousness dwells. ~ 2 Peter 3:10-13

21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. 22 Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS.’ ~ Matthew 7:21-23

This blog and my other Web site has plenty of content exposing the Adversary's evil schemes, his devices, the symbols, etc. so we can recognize and understand what's going on. We're to be harmless as doves, and wise as serpents, right? That work is both for defense, for our protection against the spells that bind us, and offense, as the enemy is exposed and ground is taken. In a larger context this is a work preparing a Bride for HaMashiach. It's about knowing the times, which is essential. All of this in a practical way really deals with character development, holiness, godliness, worthiness, as the spirit of God engages us and changes us. When I get email about such subjects as head covering, propriety in the assembly, Jezebel vs. Sarah, etc. and folks share their testimony of what the Lord is doing in their lives it touches my heart deeply because of the love. Love changes us. When He draws us near, we are never the same. We need this transforming work! We need Him!


  1. Hey Brother,

    To that the only thing I can add is a most joyous and thankful AMEN!


  2. Thanks Elishabella, and may you find all the Lord has for you as you press in to His embrace.
