The author considers the reasoning behind the commandment of Yehovah that forbids the practice of the mixing of articles of adornment worn by men and women. (Cross-dressing) Showing how this commandment was created by Yehovah to reflect heavenly realities, and thus any violation of this law serves as a perversion of the proper testimony of realities that a godly faithful life is to bring forth, and is therefore hated by God. Using the illustration that the real importance of the command of an everyday stop sign is far more than just to stop, but rather it is that the motorist having stopped, carefully considers the traffic, and thus judges how to proceed without damage. In like manner the faithful obedience of God’s laws, or the violation of them will have far greater ramifications then just the immediate natural effect on that person’s life.
Cross Dressing-When a Woman Dresses in Pants Is It innocent, Or Does God Hate Such Action?
What is being communicated to a driver when he pulls up to a stop sign? Is it only that the person must stop, or is there a deeper, un-written communication there that is supposed to be understood by the driver? I would say that the value in the command to stop is for the driver to stop his vehicle to be able to have opportunity to thoroughly look both ways and thus respond to the traffic that may or may not be present on the road that day. Thus the actual commandment only has importance because it allows for the more valuable reasoning behind it, which is to slow down sufficiently (stop) in order to consider the traffic on the road way, and then act accordingly.
Yehovah’s law that commands that the sexes must adorn themselves distinctly different, the one from the other is like this. The greatest importance of it is in the reasoning behind it, this reasoning goes beyond the immediate natural sphere of men’s lives. Yehovah’s laws that relate to the adornment of the sexes have not only an earthly need for fulfillment, meaning they are needed to properly direct the affairs of man on the earth for his immediate good and protection, but also they represent heavenly and eternal realities at the same time. The following is an explanation of the heavenly realities that are reflected in clothing, explaining why Yehovah considers it an abomination for men and women to dress alike.
Yehovah’s law that states that the sexes be adorned distinctly different, the one from the other, is found stated in Deuteronomy 22:5. Here it says that any man who dresses like a woman, or any woman who dresses like a man is an abomination to the Lord. (Whose name is Yehovah) Though ignorance and unbelief I was myself blind to this reality until I was 42 years of age. That means I lived as a Christian, with an open godly testimony for 28 years before the Holy One could bring me into the light of this understanding. The disruption of Divine Order, (The order of headhip: God-Christ-Man-Woman) which is sponsored by the spirit of feminism is extremely prevalent in the world and I might add in the Church. This spirit seeks to corrupt God’s truth. Satan has sown much confusion into the world, teaching men that in reference to headship the woman is equal to the man, thus denying and corrupting Yehovah’s order. Again we need to remember that Yehovah created the human persons illustrative of both Himself and the chief object of His love, the Church, or individual Believer. The man represents God Himself, (Christ) the woman is to illustrate the Church or individual Believer. Therefore, when a woman dresses like a man she is saying by this practice that she is the same as, or equal to a man, however, in that she is a representation of a Believer the act of her dressing as a man is saying that a Believer is the same as, or equal to the Lord. For a man to dress as a woman is to give the illustration that Yehovah has surrendered His headship over men so that He is the same as man. These testimonies are slanderous, and are therefore detestable to God. Therefore, cross dressing, or the mixing of adornment is slanderous to Yehovah, and therefore an abomination. For remember that clothes have three basic purposes:
- To protect from the elements
- To protect modesty, for all human persons are sexually oriented, therefore the covering of the body is of absolute necessity.
- Clothes are illustrative. They by their nature give illustration pertaining to the one that wears them. Even as a police officer is known by his uniform, or a soldier by his, or a white color worker by his. In like manner a woman’s adornment must signal that she is NOT a male, but female.
So what we find in modern America is that we have created almost an entire culture that cross dresses continually, and in our ignorance and indifference to Yehovah’s ways we think little or nothing of it. But I say to you that this practice has everything to do with the spirit of feminism that prevails in this society, which has everything to do with the nearly 60 % divorce rate for first time marriages, the fact that nearly 50% of all people refuse to marry, but “cohabitate”, (Which is living together with the “back door” of the relationship open so that either can leave the relationship with relative ease when they may want to) that the Internet boasts nearly 1,000.000 pornography sites, that we have “legally” murder over 54 million unborn children. (abortion) These facts reflect that America has accepted “wisdom” that is not wisdom at all, but perversion of thought made to look good by the “wolves in sheep’s clothing” that influence our people. Who are the “wolves in sheep’s clothing” that influence our people? They are the ministers and educators, and politicians, and all others who guide and teach our people, but refuse to acknowledge the laws of Yehovah and turn and do righteousness, and teach others to live in obedience to Yehovah’s laws, and the gospel of Yeshua.
Cross dressing: that of dressing a woman as a man, or a man like a woman is sin. It is a detestable act in Yehovah’s sight.
Repent America! Turn from your own wisdom and do it God’s way, and He will lift you up. Turn from every voice of man that stands in rebellion to Yehovah’s laws.
