07 God’s Covering Glory – Dress Reform

By John Thiel, The Last Generation Challenge series, mp3

Scripture reading: Isaiah 60:1 Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. 2 For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. Read the rest of this entry

Dress Reform around the World

Proverbs 31:30 Favour [is] deceitful, and beauty [is] vain: [but] a woman [that] feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.

Christ is leading out a people, and bringing them into the unity of the faith, that they may be one, as He is one with the Father. Differences of opinion must be yielded, that all may come into union with the body, that they may have one mind and one judgment. 1 Corinthians 1:10: “Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.” Romans 15:5, 6: “Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be like-minded one toward another according to Christ Jesus: that ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.” Philippians 2:2: “Fulfill ye my joy, that ye be like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.” {1T 324.1} Read the rest of this entry

Dress Reform and Spirituality

By Dwayne Lemon, Audio: mp3

I’m fully convinced that God has a Word for each and every one of us. I’m going to ask you to pay very close attention to the information I’m going to share with you. The information I’m going to share with you, for some of us, it might be a very simple message, but I believe because of what I see in this room, the majority of us will be challenged. But nevertheless, it’s a good thing to be challenged.

One Accord

I want to spend a few moments in the book of Philippians, chapter two. I believe that it is imperative. I was asking the Lord from this morning and from last night, “Father, how do I start a message like this?” And the Lord led me to turn to the book of Philippians, chapter two. There are some things that the Lord wants us to consider in His word. Read the rest of this entry

Do You Care What You Wear?

Audio: mp3

Does God care what you wear? Yes He does. Do you care what you wear is the question.

The Seven Last Plagues

Do you care about the seven last plagues? Do you care about being damaged during the seven last plagues? In the seven last plagues, there is a list that I believe if we have read this chapter, we are familiar with the list of events that are going to unfold in our history in this world.

Does God Care What You Wear?

Audio: mp3

God’s Character

How many here love God? God is a very interesting person and is there a privilege to stop our busy lives and actually get to know who God is and what sort of person He is. As we get to know Him, we admire Him for who He is and some of these traits of God that I admire is His humility. How many people here desire to be humble? Do you believe it’s a requirement to enter into heaven, yes or no?

The Lord is not greedy. God is a God of sharing and that is very evident. The fact that He gave flowers and then gave us a nose to appreciate the smell that comes from the flower, He could have said “no, that’s all mine, I will not give anyone else the pleasures of mine”, but He equipped us to appreciate the things that He appreciates. God is not greedy, He does not covet things and if you believe that we can go to heaven if we are covetous, we cant. Read the rest of this entry

Short Skirts and Their Relationship to Health, Modesty and Evangelism

By Amy McKnight, Author of the book ‘Covered’

In this study I will look at health, 21st century dress reform, evangelism and preparation for the second coming of Jesus and at the issue of short skirts and their relationship to health, modesty and evangelism. I will begin this presentation looking at the issue of short skirts from the aspect of health. Then I will look at the issue of short skirts in the context of the Bible and history. Finally I will close this look at short skirts by looking at the effect that this type of clothing has on our efforts to effectively reach a lost world with the message of the eminent return of Jesus. Finally, I’m going to be presenting information and facts that I have found in my studies of the Bible, Spirit of Prophecy and history and sometimes science. I will be giving very broad principles. We must all go to Jesus and lay our clothing out before Him. Pray for His Spirit to give that wisdom to dress right in this degenerate age. By God’s grace by the end of this presentation you will have some principles that will make choosing what to wear, what needs to be fixed and what has to be tossed a lot easier.

Dressing for Jesus

A Ribbon of Blue

Numbers 15:37 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 38 Speak unto the children of Israel, and bid them that they make them fringes in the borders of their garments throughout their generations, and that they put upon the fringe of the borders a ribband of blue: 39 And it shall be unto you for a fringe, that ye may look upon it, and remember all the commandments of the LORD, and do them; and that ye seek not after your own heart and your own eyes, after which ye use to go a whoring: 40 That ye may remember, and do all my commandments, and be holy unto your God.

Dress Reform and Physiology

By Dwayne Lemon, Audio: mp3

There are many different things that we talk about when it comes to health but there is one area that a lot of times we don’t consider yet it is one of the areas that science is confirming that the Bible and Spirit of Prophecy showed us a long time ago that would affect our health and that is the subject of dress.

In many respects allot of individuals are not aware that our dress can actually affect our health. What we would like to do is take a few moments so we can study the subject out and to see it from the Word of God. Read the rest of this entry

The Physiology of Dress Reform

By Dr. Collins, Audio: mp3

This is a topic that is very rarely ever discussed and not well understood even among people who claim to be ‘dress reformers ’. It is a matter that needs to be better understood and a matter in which God Himself has supplied the basics for us to understand it—but mostly these have not been carefully studied and people have read a little and jumped tom any erroneous conclusions and ignorance has largely prevailed. It is our hope that this concise information will help many to respond in a more effective way to the questions raised by dress reform. Many people hear or read about dress reform, and many people reject dress reform, but most do not understand the laws of the body that are actually sound. With proper understanding of how the body functions, can cause people to re-evaluate their position on this topic. Many people will recognize as the ‘Virtuous Woman’ chapter.

17. God’s Way of Dress in the Sanctuary Part 1

By John Thiel

In studying the sanctuary we are actually studying God’s way. And His ways are different to our ways. To help our minds grasp what the sanctuary is actually trying to teach us, we read the words of the psalmist as he is exonerating the Lord, Read the rest of this entry

The Definition of Covering

What then do I wear? The dress should be a covering with every movement. 

1. When bending or sitting down the legs should not appear naked.
2. When bending down your top does not sag for all to look in.
3. That the dress is loose at every movement so that it will not expose the form or the shame of thy nakedness in anyway.
4. The style does not have to change in summer, just the material. We are blessed with durable cottons that are not translucent at an affordable price.
5. The feet should be clad not only for warmth but for modesty with pants under dress to protect us from sensual feelings which keep the sexual organs constantly on fire and create hot flushes in later years etc. (Refer to section ‘Submission to God’s Counsel on Health’.)

Satan, The Ultimate Cross Dresser

By Linda Kirk Driver

Jesus was the impersonation of the divine character, bringing eternal life to all who believe in Him. Satan’s plan is to personate Christ just before the second coming for the purpose of deception. Everything significant that God does, the devil endeavors to counterfeit. (TMK 111) Read the rest of this entry

The Garment Spotted By the Flesh

By John Thiel, mp3

The Scriptures say that we are to be washed by the water and the word. To wash ourselves means that we are going to take God’s word and let it cleanse away the wrong ideas, the corruptions, spots and wrinkles of our character.

We now seek God’s word to gain the understanding of the words in Jude:

Jude 1:17 But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ; 18 How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts. 19 These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit. 20 But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, 21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. 22 And of some have compassion, making a difference: 23 And others save with fear, pulling [them] out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.

The Beauty of Holiness

By John Thiel

Psalms 29:2 Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name; worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.

The words of Jesus to the woman at the well always resound in my ears when I worship the Lord. The women at the well was a Samaritan and she thought the right place to worship was in Samaria and the Jews thought the right place to worship was in Jerusalem. She was entering into a dialogue with Jesus on that matter and finally Jesus made it quite clear to her that salvation is of the Jews and that is where God was working. But also that the day is coming and now is that those who worship God will worship him neither in Samaria or Jerusalem but in spirit and in truth.

That is where the Lord wants to be worshipped by us – in spirit and in truth. It is our effort to understand what it means to worship the Lord in spirit and in truth as we seek to study the subject the beauty of holiness. When we come to the subject of beauty we come to a very relative word. It is nothing very concrete because beauty is only in the eyes of the beholder. I saw a very ugly baby one day and the mother said isn’t’ he beautiful and I had to conquer my natural spirit and say I’m glad you think so to myself but to her – yes, a baby is always the most beautiful to its mother. To the artist beauty is in the features of symmetry and harmony in appearances. Read the rest of this entry

19. Dress Reform in the Sanctuary Part 3

We are studying God’s way in the sanctuary. Thy way, O God, is in the sanctuary. Everything that we are studying about God’s way is not our natural way. Read the rest of this entry

18. Dress Reform and the Sanctuary Part 2

By John Thiel

God’s way in the sanctuary is the way of holiness.

Isaiah 35:8 And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it [shall be] for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err [therein]. Read the rest of this entry

Dress Reform and the Sanctuary Series 1 (2001)

By John Thiel

We are researching God’s ways in a series of studies on the sanctuary. When it comes to the subject of dress, unfailingly it is one of those subjects that we always fall into difficulty with. It is imperative that we look at the subject in the framework of the sanctuary. This study deals with the true motive of dress reform and the motivation behind dress reform.

Adornment for the One I Love

By John Thiel, Audio: mp3

God is love. In his loving effort to reach our sin darkened hearts we can see this demonstrated when we look at nature – the creatures he has put into existence for us to enjoy and look at the demonstration of his method in instilling his love into the sinner’s heart. This is the greatest dimension of his love that we can study. This never ceases to thrill my soul. If you ever want to get continued enjoyment, find someone to study with. Study the things of God’s love. When that person has settled into the truth, find another to study with. As you share with others the demonstration of God’s love in saving humanity, this will keep you alive.  Observe the study of God’s love demonstrated in the story of the Jews escaping from the Egyptians. This is an object lesson of God’s love for the sinner. For 400 years the Egyptians held the Israelites in captivity.

They were slaves to be used for the empire of the Egyptian nation. As the Hebrews were gaining energy and power because God blessed them, Pharaoh was so afraid of them multiplying, he turned the fire on. Instead of supplying them with raw material, they had to go and find it themselves. Then all the boys under two years old had to be slain. The intensity of the suffering they were going through brought out cries from them to God – save us. As a result of the intense crying, the Lord revealed himself to these people. The ten plagues came upon Egypt. Pharaoh was convinced to let these people go. Then they saw Pharaoh behind them and they trembled with fear.  We know the story of the Red Sea opening up for them. What a demonstration of Gods power for their souls. Filled with fear and anguish God demonstrated his amazing power of love towards them. Doesn’t this warm the heart? Can you imagine how they must have felt momentarily there of Gods hand to save them. God says, see how much I love you? Read the rest of this entry

Dress Reform in the Bible

The Bible speaks of a decline in modest dressing of those living in the last days.

Philippians 3:19 Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame.

The question is often asked, why should a Christian dress modestly if we are living in modern times? Why should both men and women be covered up?
