What does the bible say about dressing appropriately?


While you cover your body, remember to have your Girl child covered too,
While you dress in a Holy manner remember to have your Girl child dressed Holily too,

While you dress in a Godly manner remember to have your Girl child dressed in a Godly way too,
You can’t be Dress Holily while your child is Seductively dressed,
You can’t be Modestly Dressed while your child is Indecently dressed,
You can’t be Covered while your child is left like a bare land/naked,

You can’t be Sarah while your Daughter is Jezebel,
You can’t be Ruth while your Daughter is Delilah,
Do not prostitute your daughter,
Do not dress her like a harlot,
Do not dress your child in an attire of a harlot,
Do not put on trouser on your child,

Do not put on Miniskirts, short dresses, tight and transparent clothes on your child,
Do not paint her body, face and lips,
Do not pierce her body, ears, nose and the like,
Do not add artificial attachments, braids, weave, wigs and the like to her natural hair,

But teach her to be natural while she is young,
Teach her Modesty while young,
Teach her to be Covered whole she is still young,
Teach her to Honor God in her body,
Teach her Godliness while young,
Teach her the fear of God while young,

Please do not ignore your child in the name of she is still young,


Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old, he will not depart from it

Proverbs 22:6.

God bless you!

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 an 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?
