Modest Heaven bound women.

1 Timothy 6:13-14
In the presence of God, Who preserves alive all living things, and of Christ Jesus, Who in His testimony before Pontius Pilate made the good confession, I [solemnly] charge you

14 To keep all His precepts unsullied and flawless, irreproachable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Anointed One ),

Modesty forces the men to not see their body, but

their worth and beauty as a human rather than an

object. Modesty doesn’t objectify, it

protects us all from objectification.

I hear many of you talk of dressing to please God

and yet I hear very few of you use Scriptures to

back that up!

1 Timothy 2.9….. Also [I desire] that women should adorn themselves modestly and appropriately and sensibly in seemly apparel, not  with [elaborate] hair arrangement or gold or pearls or expensive clothing.

Commands…yes commands 1 Timothy 4:11.. Continue to command these things and to teach them.
(i.e. God ordered) all Christian women/girls to not only dress

modestly and
unshamedly, but also to wear {proper}clothing. The

Greek word for clothing
here is Kati stole where we get our English

word STOLE.

In the Greek, the word katistole means a long,

let done, loose covering.

Obviously swimsuits, leg exposing shorts, tight

pants and tight short dresses do not meet God’s

criteria for PROPER CLOTHING.

Ladies, we have to stop comparing our modesty standards with

what the world
wears. The Word of God should be the standard that

ALL Christian
women use for determining how to dress and even how

long our hair should be. (See 1 Corinthians chapter 11

for God’s hair standard for men and women.)

Again girls, lets dress, look, talk and behave as God’s

Word tells us…. (If heavens is your goal, I mean if you’re targeting another
place, you’re free to do as you please.. A free Country and world. )
So Let’s quit comparing our ‘more modest

standards’ to the less modest standards of this world;

when we use the world as a gauge for what modesty

means it convinces our hearts that we are dressing

‘okay’ because after all, we are not dressing like those

other people ….at least many of are not. An example of that is

when Christian women chooses not to wear a bikini

because they believe a bikini is immodest….which is

good. However many Christian women will then choose

to wear a one piece swimsuit (which is still always form

fitting) with a pair of shorts. Now choosing to wear the

one piece swimsuit with shorts is much better than

wearing a bikini….however, it’s still not biblically

modest in God’s eyes. God’s standards are not based

on the world’s, or even the churches, concept of what

modest is. Oh how far we have fallen from God’s

standard for modesty!
