COVERINGS (CLOTHES) ARE IMPORTANT
[A Prophetic Teaching Word]
Lesson 1 in Series “What does The Lord Say?”
I heard the Lord speaking early in the morning of August 21, 2014, (The day before we left for Arkansas to preach at Greenbriar) about the need for WALKING IN HOLINESS. AND YOU MUST KNOW NOW…. HE TALKED ABOUT HOW HIS PEOPLE DRESS OR DO NOT DRESS…… He talked about how many today think he does not care or even see the way they dress before him when they come in to worship him. He talked as well about how many just look so much like the world and act like the world, talk like the world and dress like the world and how he was displeased with them.
I have felt it necessary to POST THE LORDS WORD BELOW… and to then continue to present A SERIES OF TEACHINGS TO FOLLOW THIS FIRST WORD… because there are so many today professing to be Christians who do not believe it is important even as to how they dress. Not just in Church, but everyday. THERE ARE MANY WHO I WOULD CALL ….. “WALL MART CHRISTIANS” because they dress so awful and ungodly that they LOOK JUST LIKE THE WORLD GOING INTO WALL MART!!!
But as well, let me say IN CHURCH TODAY…. “ANYTHING IS OK” SAYS … “MANY”. This teaching is NOT MY OWN.. BUT COMES FROM THE LORD. I am but a scribe, and A PROPHET. I will write what I hear him saying, even if it cause many to not like me as a Prophet. I MUST SPEAK HIS WORDS FAITHFULLY. We are LIVING TODAY IN THE END TIMES. Many are Expecting A GREAT AWAKENING… AND WHEN THEY DO…. THE LORD WANTS ALL TO KNOW… IT WILL BE AN AWAKENING WHICH WILL BRING THE CHURCH TO WALK IN HOLINESS. I hear the Word HOLY….. HOLY….. HOLY…. He is talking to me about WHAT HE WANTS AND EXPECTS. HOLINESS. The Church today is NO WALKING AS A GENERAL RULE IN HOLINESS… BUT THEY TALK LIKE THE WORLD, SMELL LIKE THE WORLD… DRESS LIKE THE WORLD… ETC…
PREACHERS ARE TELLING LIES… AND MANY OTHERS LIE TODAY TO PEOPLE TELLING THEM “IT DOSEN’T MATTER WHAT YOU WEAR… GOD DOES NOT LOOK AT CLOTHING… BUT THE HEART. Well read HIS WORDS TO ME BELOW:
This word then came forth:
“I look and I see your NAKEDNESS and SHAME UNVEILED and open for all to see. I watch and I see just how ugly and open you are as you walk before me. No desire for Holiness, so no real Concern. I say and know for sure, it is just as you have even been told [by those whom you listen to in the religious world].
Did you not read it in my Holy Word? I made you to be Holy like Me. There was nothing covering Eve nor even Adam, but that was before they did sin. Even after now, see them ashamed seeking something to cover them and hide their shame. Did you not read it? What part did you not hear? I made them COVERINGS OF SKIN to cover their sin. I had to shed the blood of innocent animals to find a suitable covering for them.
So now do you cast aside this very truth; do you not understand that you must be Covered? I shed my blood to do that for you. I did find covering to cover your sin. Now you are covered with my Blood. I cannot see your sin. All I see now is the Blood! Beautiful you are in my CRIMSON RED. I DID COVER YOU BY MY BLOOD TO MAKE YOU ACCEPTABLE BY GRACE INTO MY PLACE.
But… Flesh and blood cannot enter into my heavenly home because even now there REMAINS A CHANGE THAT MUST BE MADE. I have to CHANGE your naked open flesh or else you can not enter in here. I have waited to see if you knew you were still here (Here in hour unchanged bodies still). Do you not understand, do you not see, FLESH NEEDS A COVERING, TOO, TILL THEN. Understand you will never be like Adam and Eve were before when they were naked and shameless in their flesh. Now all that is changed.
I have chosen to COVER ALL FLESH even in Heavenly Realms, I want covering now. Men and women will never be the same since Eve did eat that fruit that opened up their understanding of sin. NOW EVEN I WEAR COVERINGS SO ALL CANNOT SEE BECAUSE MEN SEE AND KNOW NOW. I AM HOLY no taint of sin, no, not even a Shadow of Turning do you see in me. I have determined white pure and clean robes of coverings representing Holiness, White as Snow.
So why do you now think it does not matter how you dress? Do you not see me even dressed? Is there no reason to cover up?
***WHO TOLD YOU I CAN NOT SEE YOUR NAKEDNESS?
***WHO TOLD YOU I DID NOT CARE WHAT YOU WEAR?
Now read some verses in my Word to see this is Important to Me and you now, [now that we are living past Eve and Adams Sin which did bring the knowledge of sin]:”

GENESIS 3:1-11, Amplified Bible
1. Now the serpent was more subtle and crafty than any living creature of the field which the Lord God had made. And he [Satan] said to the woman, Can it really be that God has said, You shall not eat from every tree of the garden?
2 And the woman said to the serpent, We may eat the fruit from the trees of the garden, 3 Except the fruit from the tree which is in the middle of the garden. God has said, You shall not eat of it, neither shall you touch it, lest you die.
4 But the serpent said to the woman, You shall not surely die,
5 For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing the difference between good and evil and blessing and calamity.
6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good (suitable, pleasant) for food and that it was delightful to look at, and a tree to be desired in order to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate; and she gave some also to her husband, and he ate.
7 Then the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves apron-like girdles.
8 And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden.
9 But the Lord God called to Adam and said to him, Where are you?
10 He said, I heard the sound of You [walking] in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; and I hid myself.
11 And He said, Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten of the tree of which I commanded you that you should not eat?
“And the Lord God said, Behold, the man has become like one of Us [the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit], to know [how to distinguish between] good and evil and blessing and calamity; and now, lest he put forth his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever—”
EXODUS 19:10-25 Amplified Bible
10 And the Lord said to Moses, Go and sanctify the people [set them apart for God] today and tomorrow, and let them wash their clothes (NOTE THIS… LET THEM WASH THEIR CLOTHES!)
11 And be ready by the third day, for the third day the Lord will come down upon Mount Sinai [in the cloud] in the sight of all the people.
12 And you shall set bounds for the people round about, saying, Take heed that you go not up into the mountain or touch the border of it. Whoever touches the mountain shall surely be put to death.
13 No hand shall touch it [or the offender], but he shall surely be stoned or shot [with arrows]; whether beast or man, he shall not live. When the trumpet sounds a long blast, they shall come up to the mountain.
14 So Moses went down from the mountain to the people and sanctified them [set them apart for God], and they washed their clothes.
15 And he said to the people, Be ready by the day after tomorrow; do not go near a woman.
16 The third morning there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the mountain, and a very loud trumpet blast, so that all the people in the camp trembled.
17 Then Moses brought the people from the camp to meet God, and they stood at the foot of the mountain.
18 Mount Sinai was wrapped in smoke, for the Lord descended upon it in fire; its smoke ascended like that of a furnace, and the whole mountain quaked greatly.
19 As the trumpet blast grew louder and louder, Moses spoke and God answered him with a voice.
20 The Lord came down upon Mount Sinai to the top of the mountain, and the Lord called Moses to the top of the mountain, and Moses went up.
21 The Lord said to Moses, Go down and warn the people, lest they break through to the Lord to gaze and many of them perish.
22 And also let the priests, who come near to the Lord, sanctify (set apart) themselves [for God], lest the Lord break forth against them. (***NOTE THE IMPORTANCE OF THE PRIEST BEING SANCTIFIED BEFORE THE LORD.)
23 And Moses said to the Lord, The people cannot come up to Mount Sinai, for You Yourself charged us, saying, Set bounds about the mountain and sanctify it [set it apart for God].
24 Then the Lord said to him, Go, get down and you shall come up, you and Aaron with you; but let not the priests and the people break through to come up to the Lord, lest He break forth against them.
25 So Moses went down to the people and told them.”
1 CORINTHIANS 15: 50-53 Amplified Bible
50 But I tell you this, brethren, flesh and blood cannot [become partakers of eternal salvation and] inherit or share in the Kingdom of God; nor does the perishable (that which is decaying) inherit or share in the imperishable (the immortal).
51 Take notice! I tell you a mystery (a secret truth, an event decreed by the hidden purpose or counsel of God). We shall not all fall asleep [in death], but we shall all be changed (transformed)
52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the [sound of the] last trumpet call. For a trumpet will sound, and the dead [in Christ] will be raised imperishable (free and immune from decay), and we shall be changed (transformed).
53 For this perishable [part of us] must put on the imperishable [nature], and this mortal [part of us, this nature that is capable of dying] must put on immortality (freedom from death).”
REVELATION 1:10-18 Amp. Bible
[PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS PASSAGE IS TALKING ABOUT JESUS CHRIST WHEN HE COMES AND HOW HE IS DRESSED AND LOOKS.]
10 I was in the Spirit [rapt in His power] on the Lord’s Day, and I heard behind me a great voice like the calling of a war trumpet, 11 Saying, I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last. Write promptly what you see (your vision) in a book and send it to the seven churches which are in Asia — to Ephesus and to Smyrna and to Pergamum and to Thyatira and to Sardis and to Philadelphia and to Laodicea.
12 Then I turned to see [whose was] the voice that was speaking to me, and on turning I saw seven golden lampstands,
13 And in the midst of the lampstands [One] like a Son of Man, clothed with a robe which reached to His feet and with a girdle of gold about His breast.
14 His head and His hair were white like white wool, [as white] as snow, and His eyes [flashed] like a flame of fire.
15 His feet glowed like burnished (bright) bronze as it is refined in a furnace, and His voice was like the sound of many waters.
16 In His right hand He held seven stars, and from His mouth there came forth a sharp two-edged sword, and His face was like the sun shining in full power at midday.
17 When I saw Him, I fell at His feet as if dead. But He laid His right hand on me and said, Do not be afraid! I am the First and the Last,
18 And the Ever-living One [I am living in the eternity of the eternities]. I died, but see, I am alive forevermore; and I possess the keys of death and Hades (the realm of the dead).”
[PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS PASSAGE OF SCRIPTURE IS TALKING ABOUT THE BRIDE OF CHRIST … “WHO HAS PREPARED HERSELF TO MEET THEIR LORD AND GO INTO THE GREAT MARRIAGE SUPPER. NOTE HOW IT DESCRIBES THEM IN HEAVEN AND HOW THEY ARE DRESSED!]
5 Then from the throne there came a voice, saying, Praise our God, all you servants of His, you who reverence Him, both small and great!
6 After that I heard what sounded like the shout of a vast throng, like the boom of many pounding waves, and like the roar of terrific and mighty peals of thunder, exclaiming, Hallelujah (praise the Lord)! For now the Lord our God the Omnipotent (the All-Ruler) reigns!
7 Let us rejoice and shout for joy [exulting and triumphant]! Let us celebrate and ascribe to Him glory and honor, for the marriage of the Lamb [at last] has come, and His bride has prepared herself.
8 She has been permitted to dress in fine (radiant) linen, dazzling and white—for the fine linen is (signifies, represents) the righteousness (the upright, just, and godly living, deeds, and conduct, and right standing with God) of the saints (God’s holy people).
9 Then [the angel] said to me, Write this down: Blessed (happy, to be envied) are those who are summoned (invited, called) to the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he said to me [further], These are the true words (the genuine and exact declarations) of God.”
***PLEASE NOTE THIS: JESUS WAS DRESSED VERY WELL ALL THE TIME HE WAS ON EARTH. HE HAD ON A ROBE THAT COVERED HIS BODY. It was so nice the soldiers that crucified him wanted it and DID CAST LOTS FOR IT. It was a very nice robe and I believe one of some value. It was a seamless robe, in other words, a robe made by one seamstress and it was woven, not sown together parts. Do you think Jesus would have showed up in the Jewish Church IMPROPERLY DRESSED? I think not. He was the King of Kings. He was on earth true, but he was a MAN WALKING IN HOLINESS.
23 Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took His garments and made four parts, one share for each soldier, and also the tunic (the long shirt-like undergarment). But the tunic was seamless, woven [in one piece] from the top throughout.
24 So they said to one another, Let us not tear it, but let us cast lots to decide whose it shall be. This was to fulfill the Scripture, They parted My garments among them, and for My clothing they cast lots. So the soldiers did these things.”
NOW… IN CONCLUSION I SAY…
It was even taught that men and women were not to wear the same kind of clothing. As well it was a command to NOT BE NAKED OR UNCOVERED. and, It was said that a Woman was to dress as a WOMAN WHO PROFESSES GODLINESS. [One who COVERS HERSELF WELL AS NOT TO CAUSE MEN TO LUST AFTER HER, ETC]
Lord I have written this Word of teaching and warning, even as you have given it to me to write. Bring forth the understanding of this Word to all who read it. Let all men see it is very important to you how they dress before you and each other. Help men who are made Holy on the inside to receive your Holy Spirit to live, be Holy on the outside as well and to WALK IN HOLINESS.
