Christian Head Covering

(I have been looking forward to Autumn, so I found this Sun Flower accent for my head covering at Hobby Lobby in their Fall Decore section!)

“Christians don’t wear head coverings!”

Have you ever seen a Nun? have you ever seen an Amish woman? These are two types of Christians that do wear head coverings, and there are others as well.

“Well,… that’s not for today.”

Really? Says who? 1 Corinthians 11:1-16 says:

I praise and appreciate you because you remember me in everything and you firmly hold to the <sup class="footnote" data-fn="#fen-AMP-28603a" data-link="[a]” style=”font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; vertical-align: top”>[<sup class="footnote" data-fn="#fen-AMP-28603a" data-link="[a]” style=”font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; vertical-align: top”>a<sup class="footnote" data-fn="#fen-AMP-28603a" data-link="[a]” style=”font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; vertical-align: top”>]traditions [the substance of my instructions], just as I have passed them on to you. But I want you to understand that Christ is the head (authority over) of every man, and man is the head of woman, and God is the head of Christ. Every man who prays or <sup class="footnote" data-fn="#fen-AMP-28605b" data-link="[b]” style=”font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; vertical-align: top”>[<sup class="footnote" data-fn="#fen-AMP-28605b" data-link="[b]” style=”font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; vertical-align: top”>b<sup class="footnote" data-fn="#fen-AMP-28605b" data-link="[b]” style=”font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; vertical-align: top”>]prophesies with something on his head dishonors his head [and the One who is his head]. And every woman who prays or prophesies when she has her <sup class="footnote" data-fn="#fen-AMP-28606c" data-link="[c]” style=”font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; vertical-align: top”>[<sup class="footnote" data-fn="#fen-AMP-28606c" data-link="[c]” style=”font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; vertical-align: top”>c<sup class="footnote" data-fn="#fen-AMP-28606c" data-link="[c]” style=”font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; vertical-align: top”>]head uncovered disgraces her head; for she is one and the same as the <sup class="footnote" data-fn="#fen-AMP-28606d" data-link="[d]” style=”font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; vertical-align: top”>[<sup class="footnote" data-fn="#fen-AMP-28606d" data-link="[d]” style=”font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; vertical-align: top”>d<sup class="footnote" data-fn="#fen-AMP-28606d" data-link="[d]” style=”font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; vertical-align: top”>]woman whose head is shaved [in disgrace]. If a woman does not cover her head, she should have her hair cut off; and <sup class="footnote" data-fn="#fen-AMP-28607e" data-link="[e]” style=”font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; vertical-align: top”>[<sup class="footnote" data-fn="#fen-AMP-28607e" data-link="[e]” style=”font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; vertical-align: top”>e<sup class="footnote" data-fn="#fen-AMP-28607e" data-link="[e]” style=”font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; vertical-align: top”>]if it is disgraceful for a woman to have her hair cut off or her head shaved, she should cover her head. A man ought not have his head covered [during worship], since he is the image and [reflected] glory of God; but the woman is [the expression of] man’s glory. For man does not originate from woman, but woman from man; for indeed man was not created for the sake of woman, but woman for the sake of man. 10 Therefore the woman ought to have a sign ofauthority on her head, <sup class="footnote" data-fn="#fen-AMP-28611f" data-link="[f]” style=”font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; vertical-align: top”>[<sup class="footnote" data-fn="#fen-AMP-28611f" data-link="[f]” style=”font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; vertical-align: top”>f<sup class="footnote" data-fn="#fen-AMP-28611f" data-link="[f]” style=”font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; vertical-align: top”>]for the sake of the angels [so as not to offend them]. 11 Nevertheless, woman is not independent of man, nor is man independent of woman. 12 For as the woman originates from the man, so also man is born through the woman; and all things [whether male or female] originate from God [as their Creator]. 13 <sup class="footnote" data-fn="#fen-AMP-28614g" data-link="[g]” style=”font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; vertical-align: top”>[<sup class="footnote" data-fn="#fen-AMP-28614g" data-link="[g]” style=”font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; vertical-align: top”>g<sup class="footnote" data-fn="#fen-AMP-28614g" data-link="[g]” style=”font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; vertical-align: top”>]Judge for yourselves; is it proper for a woman to offer prayer to God [publicly] with her head uncovered? 14 Does not common sense itself teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a dishonor to him, 15 but if a woman has long hair, it is her ornament and glory? For her long hair is given to her as a covering. 16 Now if anyone is inclined to be contentious [about this], we have no other practice [in worship than this], nor do the churches of God [in general].

Yes,… that’s a lot to take in and understand, and there is definitely some confusion as to if long hair is a covering or not. So I would like to suggest a book that has really helped me understand this subject

This booklet has helped me the most, in understanding this subject more than any other. So much so, that I’ve considered purchasing several just to hand out!

I have personally been covering for five years now, not as a fashion show, but for prayer and humility. There is definitely something about covering when praying and studying the Bible! ❤️

Nothing is impossible!

Sadly there is so much fear running rampant right now with the coronavirus. People are scared, unsure, and worried.

But I wanted to remind everyone, that our God is The God of the impossible! He hasn’t stepped off His throne, or had His Authority taken. His Word still remains as powerful as it did in the days of The Bible. He never changes!

Turn back to Him, with weeping, with mourning, with fasting. Come close to Him and He will come close to you! Ask for forgiveness of your sin and remember the costly price JESUS The Christ paid to reconcile us back to Him! He LOVES US so much. ❤️❤️❤️ There is POWER in His Blood,… never forget that, (Revelation 12:11)!

Suggested reading: Read Joel 2, “The Bait Of Satan” by John Brevere, “The Secret Of The Stairs” by Wade E Taylor, “Bought With Blood” by Derek Prince, “The Prayer Of Protection” by Joseph Prince and “Fasting” by Jentezen Franklin.

“A Hunger For God” by John Piper.

First off, I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! I know we did. Our Son who is in the Military was able to come home for Christmas, and having everyone home means more to me than any material gift.

As most of you know I have been on a quest to understand and apply Fasting to my life. I have read some great book on the benefits of prayer and fasting such as “The Hidden Power Of Prayer And Fasting” by Mahesh Chavada, which is an excellent book! But I need to understand the ‘why’. I can go through the motions, but to understand why will make it much more appreciated and applicable. So I was reading The Passion Translation Bible, (his insight and understanding of Scriptures is jaw dropping,… literally!) trying to learn more about prayer and fasting when I came across Mark 9 where the disciples were not able to cure a boy tormented by a demon. As usual verse 29 stood out to me, but let’s start with verse 28, The Passion Translation, 28. “Afterwards, when Jesus arrived at the house, His disciples asked Him in private, “Why couldn’t we cast out the demon?” 29. He answered them, “This type of powerful spirit can only be cast out by fasting and prayer.” b

Footnote b is where it gets very interesting it says, “b 9:29 As translated from the Aramaic and some Greek manuscripts. Many reliable Greek texts leave out “fasting”. However, the word fasting was found on a fragment going back to the third century. (See also Isa. 58:6.) Our lives must be saturated with the Presence of God through prayer and fasting in order to conquer the evil that is in the world and hiding in the hearts of mankind.”

This is the part that caught my eye, “Our lives must be saturated with the Presence of God through prayer and fasting….” So fasting and prayer help to saturate our lives with His Presence!

So I did another search on that topic, prayer, fasting and The Presence of God,… and I found a book called, “A Hunger For God” by John Piper, that focuses just on that. In fact, the search also brought up the e-book! (Although I purchased a hard copy on Amazon quickly after reading some of this.)

Here is the link, if any of you want to understand prayer and fasting as I do. 🙂
