Open Heaven 19 November 2023

Today’s Open Heaven teaches on the importance of dressing to glorify the lord and not portraying oneself as cheap or available to all.


Memory Verse: In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; (1 Timothy 2:9)

Bible Reading: 1 Peter 3:1-5 (WEB)

1 In the same way, wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; so that, even if any don’t obey the Word, they may be won by the behavior of their wives without a word, 

seeing your pure behavior in fear. 

Let your beauty be not just the outward adorning of braiding the hair, and of wearing jewels of gold, or of putting on fine clothing; 

but in the hidden person of the heart, in the incorruptible adornment of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God. 

For this is how in the past, the holy women who hoped in God also adorned themselves, being in subjection to their own husbands.

There is a popular saying: ‘Dress the way you want to be addressed’. This means that how you look is an indicator of who you are.

In the olden days, a mad person could be recognised by his rough and unkempt look. However, these days, it is called a style.

This is deception. Simply put, it is what is inside that is coming out on the outside. What kind of people do you see wearing torn clothes around today? Some people even cut their jeans by themselves and call them crazy jeans.

Do you now see clearly where their inspiration is from? Why have you made mad people your new role models? That in itself is worrisome.

As a parent, why would you allow your children wear things that portray them as people of the world, rather than of God?

It is clear that some parents do not regard God highly; they would rather offend Him than discipline their children.

I saw a girl dressed indecently one day; I asked her if her parents had been out when she left the house.

She said they were at home and, in fact, it was her mother who had bought the dress for her.

I said, “How can you walk through the streets like this? Don’t you know that your dress says that you are available and cheap?”.

Surprisingly, she thanked me and said she had always suspected that her parents didn’t really care about her. Parents, teach your children to dress in a way that will glorify God.

Some husbands allow their wives to dress like harlots. I find this very hard to understand.

You cannot enter a private property without an invitation because doing so would amount to trespassing.

A wife is not for sale; she is already off the shelf, yet there are wives whose dressing proclaims them as cheap and available.

Why would a woman dress in such a way that what belongs to her husband is exposed for the whole world to see? Some women will say they want to look ‘sexy’.

Are you public property? The only fellow you should look ‘sexy’ for is your husband – no one else.

The problem is that some husbands are so ignorant that they think their wife dressing half naked in public is stylish.

May God deliver this generation from destructive mentalities, in Jesus’ name.

Points: If you are a child of the King of Kings, you should dress as such.
