In that the modern Western Church has done a very poor job of teaching many of Yehovah’s laws, most of us do not understand that it is an abomination for a woman to dress as a man. Come with us as we explore this topic and seek to answer both by Yehovah’s law, and by points of reason why this is true.
Deuteronomy 22:5….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 to the Lord thy God.
I was 42 years of age and had lived an open Christian testimony since I was 14 year’s old, yet it was not until this time that this commandment came to me. Speaking with a man concerning issues related to Divine Order it was suggested to me to read this Scripture. I did as he suggested, and the conviction of the Lord was exceedingly sharp to my spirit. For I had openly lived contrary to this commandment all my adult life, in that I had never insisted on my wife or daughters dressing distinctly different, than what a man would. I cannot express to you the embarrassment that I felt as the Holy Spirit convicted me of this commandment, for I had practiced what is an abomination before Yehovah for a very long time as a Christian, and in my confusion I did not know it. HOWEVER along with the conviction I had a question, and it was expressed in these simple words. “Lord, how can the Great Creator, the Lord of all things get excited about a few threads? What do you care about clothing if it is not immodest?”
THE ANSWER came to me very quickly. Within a few weeks He had opened my understanding.
THE MAN was/is created by Yeshua to be a living natural representation of Himself. The woman was/is created to be a living natural representation of the thing dearest to God’s heart, the Church, or any individual member of the Church, IE, the Believer.
HERE IN IS THE SIN. Clothing has three basic purposes. Firstly– To protect from the element. Without clothing we would freeze if it is cold, or roast in the sun. ETC. Secondly– To preserve modesty. Men and women being sexually oriented beings must of necessity be covered, or the lust that is inherent in people would rule every life completely. Thirdly– Clothing is symbolic. Clothing speaks. So when a woman dresses like a man she is giving the picture (Saying by her action) that she is the same as the man, and since the man and the woman are created to represent God and the Church, she is expressing by her behavior that the Church is equal to God. And we know that any two equal things are sovereign unto themselves, and neither is subject to the other. This is the spirit of Satan, it is a spirit of usurpation, and it is also the spirit of feminism that has filled our American Society. Satan sinned in that he strove for equality with God. (Is 14:13-15) He who was the highest of the heavenly creation of God (Ez. 28: 12-15) endeavored to usurp Yehovah’s place and rule himself. He now entices men who are the highest natural creation of Yehovah to grasp to be equal to Yehovah through usurpation. This is the spirit that is at work in the action of all women who refuse to adorn themselves in a manner that is distinctly different, than that of a man.
IT IS THE KOWNLEDGE OF THIS COMMANDMENT (Even if they may not have understood the truth behind it) that kept prior generations within Western Societies from mixing the adornment of male and female. Women wore dresses, men wore pants. They dressed distinctly different, the one from the other.
WILL YOU LOVE GOD ENOUGH to take upon yourself the yoke of this understanding? Yeshua said, “If you love me keep my commandments. (John 14:15)
