Hebrews 12:14 KJV~”Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord.”
1 Timothy 2:9 KJV~”In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety…”
Deuteronomy 22:5 KJV~”The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God.”
1 Corinthians 11:15 KJV~”But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering.”
“I said, we are born from Above. The Holy Spirit come down, and we belong to a Kingdom. It’s not of this world.I said, “That’s the reason that our sisters wear dresses, wear long hair, don’t wear make-up. See, their characteristics identify them as ‘holiness unto the Lord,’ from Above.”

The Bible said that it’s wrong. And get out on a afternoon and put them little bitty old short clothes on to mow the yard. It’s wrong. It’s a sin in the sight of God to do that. And you say, “No, I don’t wear shorts; I wear slacks.” The Bible said, “A woman that’ll put on a garment that pertains to a man, it’s an abomination in the sight of God.” God doesn’t change
Oh, I thought, what a thing for Christianity! Women, stop that wearing them clothes like that! Man, stop that telling them smutty jokes and all that stuff! We are sons and daughters of the King. Dress like a queen, dress like a–a lady. Act like a gentleman, don’t let your hair grow down like this.
The Bible said, “It’s wrong (nature teaches you) for a man to have long hair. And it’s a disgrace and a common thing for even a woman to pray with her hair cut.” And how about these? “It’s a–it’s an abomination for a woman to put on a garment that pertains to a man.” The great unchanging God doesn’t change.
How could a bobbed-haired woman ever come through this Filter? How could a woman with shorts on ever come through It, or slacks, when the Bible says, “It’s an abomination to God, for a woman to put on a garment that even pertains to a man”? And how can a man that thinks anything of himself, get out here and dress like the women, let his hair grow out like a woman, down in his eyes, with bangs, and twirled up like that? He is wearing his wife’s underneath clothes. She is wearing his outer clothes. A thinking man’s filter? A thinking man won’t do that, or a thinking woman won’t do it. God’s Word won’t let it pass through.
“Blessed are they that do all the commandments of God, that they might have a right to enter in.” Do all God said, and It said for women to have long hair. You say… A man told me not long ago, said, “I don’t preach a clothes-line religion.” I said, “Then you’re not preaching the Gospel.” Yeah.
God laid it out there, He said what to do. And you either do it… That’s your natural, reasonable thing. What little thing… what… the little insignificant. Jesus said, “Blessed are they that would take all the little thing, do the little things.” And a woman to let her hair grow, that’s just a… why, it’s just something she can do, and she won’t even do that. She won’t even do that.
How could you ever draw a denomination through God’s Filter? How could you do it? How could you draw a bobbed-hair woman through that Filter? Tell me. How could you ever draw a woman that wears slacks through There, when “It’s an abomination for her to put on a garment pertains to a man”? See, God’s Filter would catch her out there, It wouldn’t let her come in. (But the church has got their own filters.) So I say that there is a thinking man’s Filter, that’s God’s Word, and It suits a holy man’s taste. That’s right, a holy man; not a churchman, but a holy man’s taste. Because It’s pure, holiness, unadulterated Word of God! There is a thinking man’s Filter. And church member, I advise you to use That one
“The Kingdom of God is the Holy Spirit; you belong to that Kingdom. That’s the reason women don’t bob their hair, don’t wear shorts. That’s the reason men don’t smoke cigarettes and things like that. They’re from above, their Spirit teaches them righteousness, holiness. They don’t swear; they don’t use bad language and things, why? They’re born from above. They are different. They’re from—citizens from above.” ~61-0217 – The Mark Of The Beast And The Seal Of God #2, Rev. William Marrion Branham
