THE WOMAN Her Hair, Dress Code And Authority

No doubt, many people would ask What does the length and style of a person’s hair, or the make and style of a person’s clothing have to do with the individual’s relationship with God?” Does God really care about the length of our hair? Finding the answers to these questions will show that God’s providence extends to the smallest affairs of each individual life – in them we learn the ‘fear of the Lord’. These things which are considered small in the eyes of man are great in God’s eyes.

Referring to “Christianity”, C. S. Lewis, the Apostle to the skeptics, stated, “Christianity, if false is of no importance, and if True, of infinite importance. The one thing it cannot be is moderately important.” Applying this to the Word of God, we can say that ALL of It is infinitely important and none of it can be moderately important. Matthew 5:18 confirms the importance of ALL Scripture, saying that “not one jot or tittle shall pass away till all things be fulfilled”. I encourage you to prayerfully consider the content of this page to the extant that in our “dress” and “habits” we will avoid everything that may dishonor Christ.

Jesus in Matthew 11:25 reminds us that the understanding of God’s Word is ‘hidden’ from the eyes of the wise and prudent, and revealed unto babes. In 1st. Corinthians 1:25, 27 Paul reminds us that “because the foolishness of God” [those things which have their source in God] is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger then men…..God hath chosen the ‘foolish’ things of the world to ‘confound’ the wise.” We would also do well to remember the Words of Jesus in Matthew 4:4: “It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.”

Even in this subject of ‘long hair versus short hair’, it is foolishness in the eyes of the so-called wise and prudent of this world. But the very fact that the Bible speaks of ‘long hair versus short hair’ is an indication that God does care about the length of hair on a man or woman and that He also cares about the styling of the hair. The Old Testament contains prophecies which directly address the subject of hair on a man or a woman. In the new Testament it became an issue in the early church, requiring Paul to make known the mind of the Lord on this issue.

In this age the vast majority of professing Christian woman don’t even stop to consider whether or not it is right or wrong for them to cut their hair. They follow the style(s) of the world in general. To a certain extant the woman must bear the responsibility for making the decision about whether or not to cut her hair; but the church must take most of the blame for this. The church (because of the fear of losing members) does not even address this issue and many other issues which the Bible clearly teaches.

Reviewing the record of history we find that it was not until the turn of the twentieth century that women, mostly influenced by Hollywood, began to cut their hair – the reason being given – it made them look younger. As we approach the 21st. century we find that the vast majority of women cut their hair; and hair styles have gone from the sublime to the ridiculous – in both men and women.

To find the answer to the question we are asking about the length and style of a woman’s hair, let’s go back to the beginning and briefly trace the steps of mankind from creation to the present age. In finding the answer concerning a woman’s hair we will also discover what applies to the man.

To go back to the beginning we have to start in Genesis. Some would object to using Genesis as our starting point, saying that Genesis has nothing to say about ‘hair’. In fact the first mention of ‘hair’ in the Bible is found in Exodus – referring, not to human hair but to goat’s hair. Further reference to ‘hair’ is found in the book of Numbers, speaking of the regulations governing a “Nazarite Vow” unto the Lord.

Still, in Genesis we want to point out a very important fact concerning the ‘man’ and the ‘woman’. God always has made a ‘distinction’ between the male and the female. Genesis 1:27 gives us the first indication of the difference between the man and the woman…..

“So God created man (singular) in His own image, in the image of God created He him (singular); male and female created them (plural).

Did you notice that in Genesis chapter one God created “one” being – MAN; and ends up with “two” natures – male and female created He them? (plural). The man which God created possessed both a masculine and a feminine nature. Note also that the first “man” was NOT made from dust. He was in the “image” of God – and God is a Spirit; therefore, the first man was created a spirit-man, possessing a dual nature. But God NEVER intended for it to remain this way. In Genesis chapter 2 we find that God put this man into a body of flesh to till the ground (Genesis 2:5). But the feminine nature was still hidden in thr man. In what appears to be a contradiction of Genesis 1:27, Genesis chapter 2 clearly indicates that there was no woman. Genesis 2:20 states that. “…for Adam there was not found an help-meet for him.” Where was she? Her feminine nature and physical root was still hidden in Adam.

The Bible says that God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, removed a rib from below his heart, removed the feminine nature and made a woman, and brought her unto the man. What was Adam’s response? He said, “This [is] now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.” Note that Adam did not say that she was ‘spirit of his spirit’. God had totally removed the feminine nature and put it in the woman. God meant for man to be a man and the woman to be a woman. He gave the man a masculine spirit to make him act and conduct himself as a man; but He gave the woman a feminish spirit to act and conduct herself as a woman.

Before leaving this portion of Scripture, let’s consider one other Truth found here. It is this: The woman was NOT in the “original creation”; but rather she is a ‘by-product’ of that creation – God made a man and then took the woman out of the man. Thus the woman becomes the weaker vessel (1st. Peter 3:7). In an Age where equality of the sexes is preached and taught, especially in western civilizations, this Truth is rejected.

Now, let’s proceed to the Book of Deuteronomy. Here in this Book we find God indicating His plan for the man to be masculine and the woman to be completely feminine – even in the clothes they wore. In Deuteronomy 22:5 we find these words…..

“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.

Of course, this is another issue which the modern pulpit refuses to address on a Scriptural basis – There’d be very few left sitting in the pews. But the Bible plainly states that “it is an abomination” for a woman to wear that which pertaineth to a man, or for the man to put on a woman’s garment. The distinction of the sexes by the style of clothing they wear is here clearly acknowledged; and the mixing or interchanging of the garments is forbidden to the extent that God Himself declared it to be an abomination – absolutely unethical, a disgusting, abhorred, detestable and loathsome thing. God forbids the confounding of the sexes by the interchanging of the garments between the man and the woman – either in ordinary wear or occasionally. As we continue our study on this subject we will discover that the Bible and nature itself teaches that a difference be made between them in their hair also.

The Bible forbids the confounding of the dispositions and affairs of the sexes: men must not be effeminate – dressing or conducting themselves like women; The woman must not dress or conduct herself like a man. The Scriptures forbid her to teach the Word or to usurp authority over the man (1st. Timothy 2:11-12), in Scriptural or domestic matters. Again, such teaching is very unpopular in today’s society.

In 1st. Timothy 2:9-11 Paul seals the revelation pertaining to a woman’s clothing, hair and subjection:

9. In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness [reserved and bashful] and sobriety; not with broided [elaborate] hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly [expensive] array [clothing]; 10. But (which becometh women professing godliness ) with good works. 11. Let the woman learn in silence [quietness] with all subjection [submissiveness].

PLEASE NOTE: These and other Scriptures are not meant to justify the ‘absolute’ silencing of the woman. These and other references are intended to show the woman her position and limitations in the body of Christ. She certainly is given the liberty to give her testimony (John 4:28-29) of what Jesus Christ means to her. According to Scripture she is also permitted to engage in non-dominating conversation on the Word with the brethren (Acts 18:26). The above Scripture also indicates that the ‘styling’ of a woman’s hair should NOT be elaborate but modest.

Now, let’s return to the subject of a woman’s hair. Thusfar we have clearly shown that God makes a clear cut distinction between the man and the woman – in the clothes they wear and the authority each is permitted to exercise. Continuing further into our study we discover that God also makes a distinction between them according to the “length” of their hair. To prove this we will go to 1st. Corinthians chapter 11. Of the first 16 verses, 13 deal with the subject of “the head‘ and the ‘hair‘.

Corinthians is appropriately called “The Book Of Correction”. Though the Corinthian Church far surpassed all the others in Spiritual gifts, yet Paul had to bring more correction to them than any other church. He had to address the problems of arrogance, abuse of the gifts, forgiveness, irreverence in partaking of the ‘bread and wine’, immorality, the authority and position of the man versus that of the woman in the church; and also the problem of ‘women cutting their hair’ and ‘men with long hair’. In other matters he had praised them (verse 2) but in these matters ‘he praised them not‘.

The Apostle begins his exhortation by asserting the ‘authority’ of the man over the woman. In verse three he said: But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman [is] the man; and the head of Christ [is] God. The theme of Paul’s words is “subjection” – Christ to God; man to Christ; and the woman to the man. God placed the woman subject to the man – not as a slave or servant but rather a princess or in the case of a wife – his Queen. Understanding this, the woman conducts herself accordingly, without doing anything that would leave an impression of ‘challenging’ authority. Apparently, the women in the Corinthian Church seemed to have been guilty of usurping authority over the man.

Having made the matter of ‘subjection’ clear Paul goes on to discuss the symbols or representations of subjection in the man and in the woman – the main representation being ‘the hair’.

In Verse 4 Paul states: Every man praying or prophesying, having [his] head covered, dishonoureth his head. Many Churches teach that the covering of which Paul speaks is a veil, or in modern terms – a hat. But further reading of this portion of Scripture CLEARLY teaches that the ‘covering’ is the ‘hair’ (NOTE Verse 15). Paul is saying that if a man prays with “long”, uncut hair he dishonors his head – Christ. The man is indicating that he has thrown off the symbol of his authority over the woman and his subjection to Christ.

In verse 5 and 6 the Apostle refers to the woman, saying, But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with [her] head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven. For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered. Remembering that the covering is ‘her hair’, we know that Paul is saying that if a woman prays with her hair cut, she dishonors her head – the man. By ‘cutting’ her hair the woman is indicating that she has thrown off the token of her subjection to the manVerse 6 states that if a woman cuts her hair, in the eyes of God it is the same as if she had shaved it completely off – a symbol of shame.

Sometimes, some women who profess to believe in “long hair” seek to justify “cutting off what is commonly referred to as “split-ends“. To cut of any measure is to challenge “authority”. It’s like “slits” in skirts, you have to start with a small one before moving on to a large one. In the Garden of Eden, Eve was persuaded to change only “one” Word of God’s original command. Stay with ALL the Word; Keep ALL your hair; allow no slit in your skirt

Re our subject of “a woman’s hair”, verses 13-15 of 1st. Corinthians prove conclusively that ‘the covering’ spoken of by Paul is ‘the hair’ – not a shawl or a hat! Read the following verses…..

13. Judge in yourselves: is it comely that a woman pray unto God uncovered? 14. Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him? 15. But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for [her] hair is given her for a covering.

That is absolutely “THUS SAITH THE LORD!” A woman is required by God to keep her hair long – not necessarily worn ‘down’ over her shoulders; but whether up or down, it must be long as a token of her subjection to the man. The man must keep his short. In the days of Jesus the Jewish men usually pulled their hair around the front and cut it off. But of course the women never cut their hair.

I leave you with these couple of Scriptures…..

“Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment.”  John 12:3

This woman, Mary, anointed Jesus’ feet with ointment and wipe them with her hair. That would be quite a feat for most professing Christian women today. Most would have to stand on their head to get enough hair with which they could wipe His feet. Some, even by standing on their heads, still wouldn’t be able to wipe His feet. We live in a very perverted world – a perversion which extends even to what a woman does with her hair and the clothes she wears.

The individual can take these words of exhortation or leave it; but please remember this – if you leave it and do nothing about it you will be judged by by it. These words will condemn you in the judgment. Such a clear statement ends all controversy and debate. In verse 16 Paul said: But if any man seem to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the churches of God.”

Thus has Isaiah prophesied in Chapter 3 and verse 24:

“And it shall come to pass, [that] instead of sweet smell there shall be stink; and instead of a girdle a rent; and instead of well set hair baldness; and instead of a stomacher a girding of sackcloth; [and] burning instead of beauty.”

Laodicean Church Age – From: Church Age Book – Chap. 9:
Take a good look around you. Examine the people as they walk by. In the multitudes you see, can you pick out those that have the appearance of Christians? Watch how they dress, watch how they act, hear what they say, see where they go. Surely there ought to be some real evidence of the new birth amongst all those we see go by. But few there be. Yet today the fundamental churches are telling us they have millions saved and even Spirit-filled. Spirit-filled? Can you call women Spirit-filled who go around with frizzy bobbed hair, shorts and slacks, halters and briefs, all painted up like Jezebel? If these are adorned in modest apparel as becometh Christian women, I would hate to think what it would be like if I had to witness a display of immodesty.

Now I know that the women don’t set the styles. Hollywood does that. But listen ladies, they still sell yard goods and sewing machines. You don’t have to buy what’s in the stores and then use that as an excuse. This is a deadly serious matter that I am going into. Have you not read in Scripture that when a man looks on a woman and lusts after her in his heart, he has already committed adultery with her in his heart? And suppose you dressed in such a way as to cause that? That makes you his partner in sin, even though you would be absolutely unaware of it, being a true virgin with no such desires. Yet God holds you accountable and you will be judged.

135. QUESTION: 244. Brother Branham, what do you think about our sisters in the church wearing such short dresses? Doesn’t it mar our testimony and set the wrong example for our young people in this our church? It seems so inappropriate to see a grown woman wearing a dress so short that it shows her knees when she walks.

Ever who you are, sister or brother, whoever it is, I agree with you one hundred percent. It’s a disgrace, but tell me what to do about it. See? I preach it just as hard as I know how to preach it; they do it the same. So it’s their judgment, ’cause the Word’s went forth. Yes, I’m certainly against them little old skin-tight dresses that look like… I constantly fuss at my kids, Becky and Sarah. I just fuss at them all the time. Meda takes Becky apart every day about it. See? Dresses plumb up… ‘Cause kids, you can expect that in kids, and you have to correct them; but when it comes to a woman, there’s something wrong there. See?

The Invisible Union Of The Bride – 65-1125
Notice, she [the woman] was born first to Adam, because that’s her natural birth (See?), and she never left that. That’s a lover of the world [and the things of the world]. She claims that she’s born the second time to Christ. But her lover, notice, is Adam yet, because she loves the world.

And another thing; notice what kind of children she’s bearing. That tells what their papa is; whether it was the first Adam or the second Adam. If the church brings forth a child of the second Adam [Christ], he has the second Adam’s way of acting like the way they did on the day of Pentecost. That’s the real true second Adam’s children. See? That’s right. Their nature is like his and hers. Yes, sir. Her daughters, painted-faced, bobbed-haired, wearing men’s clothes: trousers. The Bible said for her not to do it. She cuts her hair. It’s a shame to her. You say, “Shut up on that.” That’s what the Word said. I’m only pointing out nature. That’s what she does.

Satan’s Eden – 65-0829
Notice, it was Eve that Satan used to make Adam sin by her power of lust. Now, doing the same thing today… Notice, bobbed hair, painted faces, sexually dressed (See?), she does that, and don’t know that every one of those things is contrary to the Word of God. To cut her hair makes her a dishonorable woman, a prostitute. To wear shorts puts her disgracefully. Put sexy dresses on her makes her a prostitute, and she don’t know it, not because of the holiness of God; because the lust of Satan.

A Thinking Man’s Filter – 65-0822E
Notice. But the woman who wants to have short hair, and wear shorts, or wear paint, and anything, she can go right through a Pentecostal filter just as easy as pie: nothing about it. Right into death... She said, “Well, there’s no harm in that.” If you love the world or the things of the world, it’s because the love of God’s not even in you.”

The Choosing Of A Bride – 65-0429E
That’s the way the church does: gets big D.D., Ph.D., L.L.D. so you can say, “Our pastor’s this, that, and the other.” Maybe know no more about God that a Hottentot knows about an Egyptian night. That’s right. Some theological seminary experience out there, and knows no more about God than nothing. Modern church and their theological paint, have their women all with their glory shaved off by their some Ricky added pastor that they got, like a Jezebel if there ever was one: bobbed-hair, shorts, paint, and all fixed up in a theological taste. That’s the way the church stands. That’s right. But her spiritual character is far from that being the homemaker that Jesus Christ is coming to receive

Lean Not Unto Thy Own Understanding – 65-0120
One Word of God misplaced, or misconstrued, or not accepted, breaks the whole Chain. “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.” Why is it, women, you hear me preach against these things, of wearing shorts, and paints, and hairdos of this here bobbed hair, and all that kind of stuff, and then every year when I come back you’re still setting in the same condition? Is because you’re leaning to your own understanding instead of the Word of the Lord. And, pastors, why don’t you clean up your church? Because you’re going to your denominational creed instead of the Word of the Lord. That’s right. Lean not to your own understanding. Well, lean not to your own understanding, but upon the Word of the Lord.

Jesus Keeps All His Appointments – 64-0418E
Wait till you get in the Presence of that Light. You think you’re all right now, but just wait till you get there. Try to approach one time with bobbed hair, smoking cigarettes. Just try it one time. See? You think I’m just saying that? I’ll prove it to you out of the Scripture here. It’s exactly right. Try wearing a pair of slacks, shorts. Find out where you’re at, when the Bible says it’s an abomination in the sight of God. Try it one time. See? Where’s your conscience at?

Testimony On The Sea – 64-0307
…..we’ve built bigger schools to educate our ministers, and send them farther from God than they was at the beginning. God’s not known by education. He’s not known by theology. God’s known by faith. You can’t explain God. He’s beyond explaining.

Look what it’s done. We Pentecostal people, that used to be Pentecost, our women has bobbed off their hair, wearing makeup. Our men is permitting it. Our ministers are permitting it. They’re afraid to say something about it. The church will turn them out if they do. Oh, if we don’t need a house-cleaning from the pulpit plumb to the basement. It’s a shame. It’s a disgrace.

Why Little Bethlehem? – 63-1214
Somebody said the other day, said, “Brother Branham, people know that you’re a woman-hater.” I am not. I’m not. I got genuine love for my sisters. Some man will turn around, think you look nice with red eyes and green eyes, and bobbed hair, that man has got a different opinion than what I’d have. Your… I love that soul that’s in you, that’s got to meet God. That’s what I’m [trying to help]… My sister for eternity, not some little sex thing here on earth will…

World Again Falling apart – 63-1127
But the people want something. The people today, women, what do they want? They want a pastor, who’ll stand up and say, “It’s all right. You can do this or do that. Or, that’s all right, there’s nothing wrong with that, dear.” That preacher needs a Gospel whipping; let bobbed hair, wear paint… No, you say, “What does that got to do with it?” Don’t you know the outside of you reflects what is on the inside? Don’t the Bible say you shouldn’t do that? It’s not even common for a woman to pray like that.

The Token – 63-1128E
Warning us, the time is at hand… Believers should be separating themselves from the things of the world, the cares of the world. That’s the reason I hammer at women and so forth the way I have. And then separate yourself from these TV programs. Separate yourself from this Hollywood evangelism. Come back to deepness and sincerity. We stand in the pulpit, and jump up-and-down, and laugh, and holler, and carry on, and women dance over the floors, clothes on them real skin tight, and all kinds of jewelry and stuff hanging on, with bobbed hair, and some of them with makeup on. And they got a intellectual pastor there, a preacher that can put the Word together so perfect. That isn’t it. We don’t come to the altar of God, laughing, carrying on, and cutting up. We come to the altar with sincerity and deepness, because there we’re dying. You don’t go to death, laughing and jollying, if you got your right mind. It’s an insane person that does that.

Influence – 63-0803E
And you women with short, bobbed hair, do you know what? It’s becoming to you that you let your hair grow out and act like a lady. You that wear shorts, take them off; put on dresses. It’s becoming to you that you act like Christians (That’s right.), ’cause the Bible said that’s wrong. A woman shouldn’t do that.

God Of This Evil Age – 65-0801M
He said, “Cutting hair, what’s that got to do?” Brother, let’s stop here just a minute. I just feel somebody resented that. Might’ve been out on the wire somewhere. Listen. The hair to a woman is a Nazarite vow. Hair to Samson was a Nazarite vow. And when a woman cuts off her hair she absolutely denies her Nazarite vow that she is a Bride to Christ, because there, that one thing, she spoils the whole picture. Correctly. A Nazarite is “one that is consecrated for a purpose.” Is that right? Samson was consecrated to a age and to a purpose; therefore, he had long hair.

The woman that’s a child of God, lets her hair grow to show that’s she’s consecrated to every Word of God. If she cuts it off, I don’t care how much she dances, sings, is in the choir, speaks in tongues, runs up-and-down, has all kinds of aid societies, she’s dead. That’s THUS SAITH THE LORD, the Word of God: I Corinthians 14. See? She has denied her Nazarite vow and sold out to the god of this modern age. She does it. Now, shame on you, lady, or woman.Vision Of The Church And The Bride

A few weeks ago I was in a vision, and I was standing upon a high place, and I was to see the preview of the church. I was standing more like this way, facing the west, and coming this way was a lovely bunch of women, real nice dressed, long hair fixed nice in the back, sleeves, and skirts down neatly, and they were all in a marching tune, like “Onward Christian soldiers marching as to war, with the cross of Jesus going on before.” And as they passed by, I stood, and there’s something there, some Spirit was God, and He said, “There is the Bride.” And I looked and my heart was happy. And she went around this way, and passed around behind me.

After while when She come back this a-way, It said, “Now, the modern church will come into preview.” And here come the Asian church up. I never seen such a filthy bunch. Here come the other churches up of the different nations. They looked horrible. And I say this because I am duty bound to tell the truth before God. And when He said, “Here comes the church of America now to be previewed,” if I ever seen a bunch of devils, it was that. Them women were stripped naked with a old gray looking thing like a color of an elephant’s hide, and they was holding it in front of them with no upper part on it at all, and they were doing this kind of stuff – these dances that these kids do out here, that twist and stuff and that kind of music going on. And when I seen Miss U.S.A. come up, I almost fainted.

Now, this is THUS SAITH THE LORD. If you believe me to be His servant, you believe me now. I wouldn’t say that for nothing in the world; there’s not enough money in all the world to get me to say that if it wasn’t true. And when she {Miss U.S.A. Church] come by, that was the filthiest looking thing I ever seen. I thought, “God, as hard as preachers and we brethren have labored to get You a Bride, and that’s the best we could do.” She was twisting, holding this in front of her like one of these hula skirts of a thing, holding it in front of her parts, her lower parts like this, dancing and twisting like these kids do out here on these vulgar shows that they have, twisting. That was Miss Christianity of America.

So help me, by the help of God, that’s what it looks like in His face. I could’ve fainted. I thought of all the trying, and the preaching, and the persuading: every one of them with bobbed hair, and they were twisting and carrying on, holding this in front. They come around where I was standing there with this supernatural Being. I couldn’t see Him. I could hear Him talking to me. He was right around me. But when they turned this way, they was just twisting and laughing and going on, carrying on like that, holding this in front of them. Now, me standing in His Presence there, and His servant, and of all I’d tried, that’s the best I could do. I thought, “God, what good did it do me? What good did it do? All the crying, and begging, and persuading, and the great signs and wonders and miracles that You showed. And how I stood there and go home and cry after preaching to them and things, and what good did it do me? And then I have to present something like that for You for a Bride.”

And as I stood there looking, she passed on by, and you could imagine the back part of her with nothing on, holding this in front of her as she went shimmying by like that to this twist, throwing her limbs out like that….. Oh, it was vulgar how she was carrying on, her body shaking around like that. You say, “What does it mean, Brother Branham?” I don’t know. I’m just telling you what I seen. And when she passed by like that, I looked at her, and oh, I just got real faint. And I just turned around. I thought, “God, then I’m condemned. There’s no need of me trying any how. I just might as well quit.” Mrs. Carl Williams, if you’re setting here, and that dream that you told me about awhile ago that you had the other night that’s been bothering you; there it is. The steering wheel is taken from my hand.

Then I just thought I just might as well forget it; I was gone. Then all at once, I heard them coming again, and coming upon this side come the same Bride that went around this a-way. Here come them little ladies again, and each one of them was dressed in their national garb from where they come from, like Switzerland, Germany and so forth, each one wearing that kind of garb, all long haired, just exactly like the one at the first. And here they was coming, walking, “Onward Christian soldiers marching as to war…” And when they had passed by the preview stand where we were standing, you just all at once every eye went that way, and then they turned back, and on they went marching. And just as they [the Bride] started to going right up into the skies, this other one [the Church] went up to a brink of a hill and went down like that….. every time one of them would come, they [the church] would go out to a certain place and drop off

…..And I looked, and here come that sainted bunch of little girls just exactly the way they was, all correctly dressed, their hair hanging way down on their back, smooth, clean, marching like this to the step of the Gospel. She was the Word. And it looked like one out of every nation. I was looking at it as they passed by, and seen them pass by. Instead of going down, they started going up. And I noticed two or three of them trying – getting out of line; I screamed, “Stay in line.” And the vision left me, and I was standing in this room screaming, “Stay in line.”

That’s the reason I’ve said what I have tonight. I want to ask you a question: Is it later that we think? Could she already be called, and chosen, sealed away? There won’t be one extra one, you know. Could it be possible?
