Conduct of Dressing for Woman
By Susan Davis
[Author of Marriage Supper of the Lamb]
HUS SAITH THE LORD: Jeremiah 2:32 (NLT): 32 “Does a young woman forget her JEWELRY, or a bride her wedding dress?”
Yet for years on end MY people have forgotten ME.
Watch out those who practice legalism–it stems from a RELIGIOUS SPIRIT–AND RELIGIOUS SPIRITS ARE DEMONIC.
I am deeply concerned by the warnings people say are coming from GOD about women wearing makeup/jewellery taking them to Hell, well if they worship these things maybe, but I have done extensive research on this and most people don’t know this but MAJOR Bible characters wear jewellery and makeup throughout the Bible and I doubt if Ruth and Esther, Rachel, the prodigal son, Joshua, Joseph, Jesus, and the Shulamite woman from the Song of Solomon are in Hell because they wore jewellery /makeup/ perfumes. Even CHRIST had perfume poured over HIM twice in the New Testament….
I prayed over this and the LORD took me to the rich man parable and JESUS told the man to sell everything–because he was in love with his riches and not GOD–then the HOLY SPIRIT immediately took me to the parable of the Prodigal son and the Father (represented by FATHER GOD) gave the prodigal a fancy robe, party, and a ring to celebrate his homecoming the opposite scenario of the rich man because the prodigal came back to the LORD and his father–The LORD is not double minded so that now HE would send the prodigal son to Hell for wearing a ring–so the issue isn’t jewellery–it is the HEART–because plenty of times people wore jewellery/makeup in the Bible–famous Bible characters like Esther, Ruth etc. so the matter is the HEART–be careful because I can take jewellery, perfume, makeup away from someone and that does not save them or make them right–if their HEART is not right with GOD–the focus isn’t on works doctrine like the devil wants us focused–the focus is the HEART–always the HEART and whether it is right with GOD or focused on the world–the rich man was looking back to the world–the prodigal was looking back home to the LORD and his father–big difference–it is not the jewellery–it is the HEART.
I was deeply troubled about the matter regarding makeup/jewellery and I prayed to the LORD and the HOLY SPIRIT immediately brought up these scriptures: First HE brought to mind the parable of the Rich man in the Bible (Matthew 19:20-24) and in this parable CHRIST tells the young rich man to sell everything and give it away to the poor to be right with GOD. Then the HOLY SPIRIT brought up next the parable of the Prodigal son in the Bible (Luke 15:14-24) and in this parable the opposite event happens the young man in the story has sinned but is deeply remorseful and returns with remorse to his father to which the father (representing GOD the FATHER in this passage) runs to greet the young man with the very things JESUS earlier tells the rich man to sell: the best robe; a ring for his finger; shoes; the prize fatted calf and a party! So what gives here—is GOD double-minded? NO! The sin is not in the objects of wealth—great possessions—the fine robe, ring, shoes, fine food, bread—because the father in the Prodigal son parable presents his wayward returning son with the very things the rich man was told to sell and give to the poor. It was about the HEARTs of the two men. The rich man loved the wealth more than GOD and even idolized it. It was the regret of the Prodigal Son over placing wealth before GOD and his repentance that puts him back in good-standing with his earthly and Heavenly Fathers and he gains back earthly possessions (like the ring which is jewellery) because unlike the young rich man, the Prodigal has learned the error of worshipping objects/worldly possessions. The love of jewellery/makeup will surely get you in trouble if you value it more than GOD—but it is NOT about the possessions—it is about the HEART.
Matthew 19:20-24 (KJV): 20 “The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet? 21 Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me. 22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions. 23 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. 24 And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the Kingdom of God.”
Luke 15:14-24 (KJV): 14 “And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that land; and he began to be in want. 15 And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country; and he sent him into his fields to feed swine. 16 And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks that the swine did eat: and no man gave unto him. 17 And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father’s have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger! 18 I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee, 19 And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants. 20 And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him. 21 And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son. 22 But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet: 23 And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry: 24 For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry.”
Re: Women wearing Jewellery/Makeup:
I am getting lots of mail about women wearing makeup/jewellery—so here is what I can tell you.
In the Bible, Abraham’s servant went to get a bride for his son Isaac and the first thing the servant does when he greets Rebekah is give her a gift of jewellery: Genesis 24:22 (KJV): “And it came to pass, as the camels had done drinking, that the man took a golden earring of half a shekel weight, and two bracelets for her hands of ten shekels weight of gold”
Then GOD speaks of how HE raises up Israel like a woman HE PUTS JEWELS ON: Ezekiel 16:12 (KJV): “And I put a jewel on thy forehead, and earrings in thine ears, and a beautiful crown upon thine head.”
But Israel does trust in her own beauty and turns her back to GOD: Ezekiel 16:15 (KJV): “But thou didst trust in thine own beauty, and playedst the harlot because of thy renown, and pouredst out thy fornications on every one that passed by; his it was.”
(2) As a Cosmetic
From earliest times oil was used as a cosmetic, especially for oiling the limbs and head. Oil used in this way was usually scented (see OINTMENT). Oil is still used in this manner by the Arabs, principally to keep the skin and scalp soft when traveling in dry desert regions where there is no opportunity to bathe. Sesame oil has replaced olive oil to some extent for this purpose. Homer, Pliny and other early writers mention its use for external application. Pliny claimed it was used to protect the body against the cold. Many Biblical references indicate the use of oil as a cosmetic (Exodus 25:6; Deuteronomy 28:40; Ruth 3:3; 2 Samuel 12:20; 14:2; Esther 2:12; Psalms 23:5; 92:10; 104:15; 141:5; Ezekiel 16:9; Micah 6:15; Luke 7:46).
Ruth 3:3: 3 “Wash and perfume yourself, and put on your best clothes. Then go down to the threshing floor, but don’t let him know you are there until he has finished eating and drinking.”
2 Samuel 12:20: 20 “Then David got up from the ground. After he had washed, put on lotions and changed his clothes, he went into the house of the LORD and worshiped. Then he went to his own house, and at his request they served him food, and he ate.”
2 Samuel 14:2: 2 “So Joab sent someone to Tekoa and had a wise woman brought from there. He said to her, “Pretend you are in mourning. Dress in mourning clothes, and don’t use any cosmetic lotions. Act like a woman who has spent many days grieving for the dead.”
Esther 2:12: 12 “Before a girl’s turn came to go in to King Xerxes, she had to complete twelve months of beauty treatments prescribed for the women, six months with oil of myrrh and six with perfumes and cosmetics.”
Psalm 92:10: 10 “You have exalted my horn like that of a wild ox; fine oils have been poured upon me.”
Psalm 104:15 “Wine that gladdens the heart of man, oil to make his face shine, and bread that sustains his heart.”
Ezekiel 16:9 “I bathed you with water and washed the blood from you and put ointments on you.”
Luke 7:46: 46 You did not put oil on my head, but she has poured perfume on my feet.
New Living Translation
Then Mary took a twelve-ounce jar of expensive perfume made from essence of nard, and she anointed Jesus’ feet with it, wiping his feet with her hair. The house was filled with the fragrance.
GOD speaks of HIS children and refers to them as jewels: Malachi 3:17: And they shall be mine, saith the Lord of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.
Genesis 24:53: And the servant brought forth jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and raiment, and gave them to Rebekah: he gave also to her brother and to her mother precious things.
Once again the representation of GOD in the story of the Prodigal Son the father presents a ring to his lost son in this story: Luke 15:22 (KJV): But the father (A REPRESENTATION OF GOD THE FATHER HERE) said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet:
Isaiah 49:18: Lift up your eyes round about, and behold: all these gather themselves together, and come to you. As I live, said the LORD, you shall surely clothe you with them all, as with an ornament, and bind them on you, as a bride does.
Here is the stunning scripture that says there can be NO WAY God would send someone to Hell just for jewellery alone:
Isaiah 61:10: I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my GOD; for he has clothed me with the garments of salvation, he has covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments, and as a BRIDE ADORNS HERSELF WITH JEWELS.
Proverbs 25:11-13: As an earring of gold, and an ornament of fine gold, so is a wise reprover upon an obedient ear.
Solomon uses jewellery to praise his beautiful bride in the Song of Songs:
Song of Solomon 1:10: Thy cheeks are comely with rows of jewels, thy neck with chains of gold.
Song of Solomon 7:1: How beautiful are thy feet with shoes, O prince’s daughter! The joints of thy thighs are like jewels, the work of the hands of a cunning workman.
Here in this scripture Joseph a form of CHRIST figure is honoured by Pharaoh and saves all Egypt and his people in the process: Genesis 41:42: (KJV): 42 And Pharaoh took off his ring from his hand, and put it upon Joseph’s hand, and arrayed him in vestures of fine linen, and put a gold chain about his neck;
In Proverbs jewellery is used to represent obedience to parents in a positive representation not a negative representation: Proverbs 1:8-9 (KJV): 8 My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother: 9 For they shall be an ornament of grace unto thy head, and chains about thy neck.
After the angel of death in the Old Testament takes the first born of Egypt’s people, Pharaoh released the people to leave Egypt and this is what Moses did next: Exodus 12:35-36 (KJV): 35 And the children of Israel did according to the word of Moses; and they borrowed of the Egyptians jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and raiment: 36 And the LORD gave the people favour in the sight of the Egyptians, so that they lent unto them such things as they required. And they spoiled the Egyptians.
The Israelites left with the spoils of the Egyptians at Moses’ command and this included jewellery of silver and gold and the Bible says the LORD gave the Israelites FAVOR by this action of receiving jewellery from the Egyptians.
Now the key problem with telling people they will not be raptured just because of jewellery is also telling them they will be raptured if they don’t wear jewellery and that is sending the message of “works” doctrine—as if not wearing jewellery will make you rapture ready—wrong, wrong, wrong: A FULL SURRENDER TO CHRIST—A FULL SUBMISSION TO THE FILLING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT IN YOUR LIFE AND ERNESTLY PURSUING CHRIST AS YOUR ALL IN ALL—backing away from trivial pursuits in exchange for making time to have a relationship with GOD is the way to assure readiness for the LORD’s Return. If you are in GOD’s Will because you submit yourself to it because you desire it more than anything else—the LORD will lead you in the way you should behave and dress. If you have a right relationship with CHRIST your focus won’t be on jewellery or dressing in ways that are indecent—but it will be a choice of the heart and not the head or “works.”
I am absolutely frustrated with the enemy’s attempt to thoroughly confuse the people with an anti-GOD works doctrine–focusing on jewellery/makeup etc…..as if people who stop wearing makeup and jewellery and work at their salvation this way will be saved–instead of focusing on the true point of salvation–surrender to CHRIST fully–and asking the HOLY SPIRIT for a full oil lamp and complete filling–then the HOLY SPIRIT leads the individual into the correct mind set toward things that can become idols apart from the control of the HOLY SPIRIT: jewellery; makeup; shopping; overeating; their own children; material possessions; etc. etc.; Meaning: we all eat; have children; shop for things; have possessions, etc…..will we make these things into idols? IF WE OPERATE OUTSIDE OF THE WILL OF GOD WITHOUT THE FILLING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT then these things will lead people to hell for sure and not just the idol worship of their children, but shopping, abusive love of jewellery/makeup/shopping/eating etc. but more than anything it will be the person’s desire to operate outside of the Will of the FATHER and unsurrendered fully to CHRIST without the filling of the HOLY SPIRIT will be the true reason people go to Hell–although, they will be punished for the sins like worship of money that they can’t resist apart from the Power of the HOLY SPIRIT in their lives. If money itself were a sin, the Christians wouldn’t be allowed to handle it ever–but we know that is a ridiculous concept–but GOD says you can’t serve Mammon and GOD both. It is the idol-worship of money–just like it is the idol-worship of jewellery or makeup–that will put people in Hell.
However, the Bible is clear about tattoos being taboo: Leviticus 19:28 (NKJV): You shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor tattoo any marks on you: I am the Lord. I think the tattoos is all about the whole antichrist mind-set since the mark of the beast will also be in tattoo form and that is why GOD is against it. It used to be you only thought of tattoos as being something you saw done in tattoo parlours in the dark seedy areas (ask your parents about this) now the enemy has taken it mainstream like a lot of the things GOD HATES—that is how the enemy is on the move—like the promotion of witchcraft/wizardry is all now so mainstream.
Now the question about these things is jewellery/makeup can become idols—and that is where people get in trouble with GOD—idolizing such things. Take shopping for example—some people just go bezerk with shopping—they do it all the time and it rules their lives and it is idol worship—but is shopping in and of itself evil? No, we all have to shop for something from time to time—it is just what you do with it. But don’t take my word for it—my friend Donna and I received Words from the LORD on this matter also:
Words from the Lord to Susan:
I asked for words on makeup, hair dye and jewellery and this is what HE said:
“Anything can be turned into an idol. I don’t want to be usurped by any inanimate objects. Like it or not these words are true. I am not a GOD who takes lightly being dethroned by objects of vanity. When they pursue these things and they spend more time beautifying themselves for each other then they are engaging in idol worship. Tell the people that I want first place in their lives and in their hearts. Too many things in this life come against ME. If these activities take precedence in your lives then you have chosen against ME. That is when people get in trouble even your children can become idols. You are to have no other gods before ME. All these things are not evil unless you make them into idols and they come between us and that is when you fall into error. People are not to have tattoos. I am very displeased with that too. Doesn’t My word speak against it? I do not want MY children to look like harlots. These are MY Words and they are true.”
Susan: I think HE said the sin is in the heart and not on the face.
Words from the LORD to Donna for confirmation: “Yes my daughter I will give you words on these words. These are MY words and you can bank on them. They are true in their entirety. Tell the daughters and the sons who need them. Amen. Yahushua.”
Please note the section below on The Marriage Supper of the LAMB book which is the journal in which I received important end time messages for everyone through. These words are for everyone—to prepare you for what lies ahead—to give you insight on what the LORD expects from HIS children to be prepared for what is coming and to be ready for the next life. Although I took these Words down during a secluded 40-day fast, it has very little to do about me and a lot to do about preparing everyone for what lies ahead. So please take time to read this document (now available in EBook format totally free, fast, and easy to download—please see the links below) and then share it with others you care about. Chapter topics: Humility; Forgiveness; Trusting GOD; My Leaders aren’t following ME; Marriage Supper of the Lamb; Being Ready for the End Times. To GOD be the Glory—great things HE has done!
