HEAD COVERINGS IN THE CHURCH OF GOD

     To the remnant who in Jesus Christ are preserved unto the dawn of the morning, greeting. 
 
     In these last days, when the fulness of the gospel has emerged from the dark ages, and the joyous revelations of the Sardian and Philadelphian eras have unfolded in the churches, now the gross darkness prophesied by Isaiahwhich is covering the earth is being embraced to near total blindness by theangel of the church of the Laodiceans. Through covetousness, liturgy, and vain tradition the churches have fulfilled that which was spoken by the Lord, saying,
 

"This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men."

     This is without a doubt the very thing that angered our Lord the most when he came in the flesh, and still does today. This epistle will deal with just one of the many ways that God's people are disobeying and dishonouring him in his own house this very day. Let those who love the word of God hear, and reject the errors of men to embrace the truth of the scripture, that God Almighty may be honoured and glorified in his own house, and his people beautified with salvation. 

Amen.

1 Corinthians 11:2-16

 
 
2. Now I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances, as I delivered them to you. 
 
3. But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the headof Christ is God. 
 
4. Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonoureth his head. 
 
5. But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven. 
 
6. For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered. 
 
7. For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man. 
 
8. For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man. 
 
9. Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man. 
 
10. For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels. 
 
11. Nevertheless neither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man, in the Lord. 
 
12. For as the woman is of the man, even so is the man also by the woman; but all things of God. 
 
13. Judge in yourselves: is it comely that a woman pray unto God uncovered? 
 
14. Doth not even nature itself teach you, that if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him? 
 
15. But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering. 
 
16. But if any man seem to be contentious [by teaching or practicing another custom], we have no such custom, neither the churches of God.
