Why the Lack of Modesty Among Message Believers?

The question I am posing and intend to answer in this article is simple and straightforward. The Bible clearly teaches modesty for both men and women. Brother Branham’s teaching clearly expounds on these doctrines and God vindicated his ministry. So to state we are message believers and believe that Malachi 4:5-6 part B was fulfilled in his ministry then why do we see people disregarding this teaching and not following it. The answer is unbelief. The reason that brothers are wearing immodest clothing and sisters are wearing make-up, cutting their hair, wearing pants and tight clothes is because they DO NOT BELIEVE!

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

If you really believed it, you would obey it and it would be a joy to you. This is not for your constraint, but for your protection and your joy.

“He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.” John 14:21. If you really loved Jesus more than this world (Hollywood vs. the Word of God) then you’d obey him. “He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.” Matthew 10:40. Make no mistake, when you reject the word of a man sent from God you are rejecting Jesus Christ.

Many are not aware that it was never normal for a Christian woman to cut her hair, wear make-up or pants until the 20th Century. Prior to this time it was considered a sin and it still is a sin. Hollywood has prevailed and pushed its viewpoint upon the modern church world.

If you are a believer of the message then you will obey it and it will be clearly manifested in your life. Don’t play games or give lip service, it’s too close to the rapture to be doing that. Repent and be sincere in your heart. If you believe IT then OBEY!

But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. Romans 6:17

Borderline believers! Don’t just come this far, say, “I believe the Message.” You obey the messenger. Come into Christ! You say, “Well, I believe every Word said, Brother Branham.” That’s good, but that’s just–that’s just being able to read. Take the Message, take It into your heart, that you must have the Token, the very Life that was in Christ be in you.

The Token, William Branham, 9/1/1963

The reason for the lack of modesty among message “believers” is that they are walking in unbelief. Faith leads to obedience! “Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.” James 2:18.

Why am I focusing on this issue? Brother Branham focused on this issue because it was a problem and it is sin in the church. And true men of God will call the people to repent and get right with God! The condition of the women in the church reveals the spiritual condition of the church as a whole. Read what brother Branham said about this issue:

If you want to know where the church is standing, watch the women. Watch the morals among the women, ’cause she’s a representation of the church. When you see the pollution amongst the women, you find the pollution in the church. What she become, a painted-up Jezebel, just exactly what the church has become. See? Now, that’s the truth, and you know that. See? If you want to know where the church is, watch the morals among your women. Cause, she is, the church is a woman.

Does God Ever Change His Mind About His Word, William Branham, 4/18/1965

    Thank you for the timely articles.
    I believe even if the rapture is not soon, every predesignated Seed will dress properly.
    How can an Eagle be a chicken?
    It’s not in their Spiritual Genes to do so.
    Thank you for your committed stand.

  • dressing in modest shows that one is in their RIGHT mind.
    In Mark 5:11…. the Bible says that when the maniac of gandara was healed by Jesus, his fellow citizens “come to Jesus and see him that was possessed with the devil and had the legion sitting, and CLOTHED, and in his right mind”.
    the way you dress shows what kind of a spirit is in control.
    no matter how humble and somber you may think you are, you are possessed with an evil spirit.

  • God bless you for the apparel article. Thinking of the 3types of believers; not underestimating the influence the dress code have on our youth within the mix of the believers. I put it to the leadership to caution the concerned brethren, the word excommunicate has lost its place amongst the believers. It is a corrective word not punishing as we see Paul do in the Corinthian church; in mind “love is corrective” As brethren, we must take charge of other brethren according to Matt. 18:15-18. About time we, believers stopped making fellowship a social meeting place, but a sober meeting; where the GUEST OF HONOUR is GOD’S HOLY SPIRIT; two or three gathered in His NAME(CHRIST JESUS).to give worship, not to bring fashions of holeywood, with class and clanism to seduce. We must protect the eaglets with being firm on the WORD demands, little flock; not to aim to fill the pews. May GOD be ever gracious and merciful usward!

  • God bless u brothert for the article on mdesty.

    I think the enemy has been successful with the strategy of cooking many believers slowly. Like a frog, we have adjust our temp to the heat until we could not do it anymore.

  • Although I agree with the word , you can do all these things the prophet said which is good , like the rich young ruler , who was rich in quotes , and still go to hell , you can have the holy ghost 24 hours a day and still go to hell , I have seen unbelievers even heathens with long hair , long dresses and are decent which is good but thats not it not enough to go in the rapture , cause any one can do that,its like getting a pig all dressed up he is still a pig by nature , so who can go in the rapture , you must have a change of nature , be BORN AGAIN OF HIS SEED ,
    you are going in the rapture because you are a seed and that seed is quickened not on your good behaviour, point the people to the cross , if they are seed the fruit of the spirit will follow , sheep are not asked to manufacture wool they produce wool by nature

    God bless you Bro Ken


  • Yes, indeed you can, but this article is not looking at it from that angle. We are calling those that confess belief in the prophet but are not obeying his message. Is it not true that genuine faith leads to obedience? It’s not about what unbelievers do, but for believers that have been regenerated they will obey with a joyful heart.

  • hey thanks for the reply much appreciated

    a sheep is not asked to bear wool , it produces wool by nature , our nature has to be changed by the seed quickened in the soul by preaching jesus christ and him crucified amongst us (SON OF MAN BEING REVEALED) then the fruit will follow , until this happens you have a hagar religion , until the seed shall come to whom the promise was made ,

    thanks for your time God bless you

  • The fact that there is a “lack of modesty” shows that there is a fundamental lack at the heart level where true holiness begins. Holiness is a lot more that the type of clothes we wear. We can be as modest as can be and still not be holy.
