Are Cosmetics / Make-up Acceptable
If you truly want to follow The Almighty in all Truth, you must be willing to accept the Truth regardless of whether or not it corrects you & regardless or not of whether it reveals sin in your life. We must seek the truth & depart from the carnal will of the flesh. We must examine issues in full submission to The Will of The Almighty Creator, not seeking to approve of our current beliefs & activities. We must be willing to repent & submit to Truth whenever we are exposed to the Truth. Let's examine the issue of Cosmetics, Make-Up. Is it really acceptable to The Almighty Holy Eternal Creator that females paint their faces, toes, finger nails, etc?
"Prove all things; hold fast that which is good" (1 Thes. 5:21).
Jer. 4:30 And when thou art spoiled, what wilt thou do? Though thou clothest thyself with crimson, though thou deckest thee with ornaments of gold, though thou rentest thy face with painting, in vain shalt thou make thyself fair; thy lovers will despise thee, they will seek thy life.
Ezek.23:40 And furthermore, that ye have sent for men to come from far, unto whom a messenger was sent; and, lo, they came: for whom thou didst wash thyself, paintedst thy eyes, and deckedst thyself with ornaments,
Read Ezekiel 23 Entire Chapter.
Isa.3:12 As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths.
This verse shows the current situation where women rule the husbands & families & churches of the world. The Jezebel spirit is ruling many families.
Isa. 3:13 The Lord standeth up to plead, and standeth to judge the people.
14 The Lord will enter into judgment with the ancients of his people, and the princes thereof: for ye have eaten up the vineyard; the spoil of the poor is in your houses.
15 What mean ye that ye beat my people to pieces, and grind the faces of the poor? saith the Lord God of hosts.
16 Moreover the Lord saith, Because the daughters of Zion are haughty, and walk with stretched forth necks & wanton eyes, walking & mincing as they go, and making a tinkling with their feet:
17 Therefore the Lord will smite with a scab the crown of the head of the daughters of Zion, and the Lord will discover their secret parts.
18 In that day the Lord will take away the bravery of their tinkling ornaments about their feet, and their cauls, and their round tires like the moon,
19 The chains, and the bracelets, and the mufflers,
20 The bonnets, and the ornaments of the legs, and the headbands, and the tablets, and the earrings,
21 The rings, and nose jewels,
22 The changeable suits of apparel, and the mantles, and the wimples, and the crisping pins,
23 The glasses, and the fine linen, and the hoods, and the vails.
24 And it shall come to pass, that instead of sweet smell there shall be stink; and instead of a girdle a rent; and instead of well set hair baldness; and instead of a stomacher a girding of sackcloth; and burning instead of beauty.
25 Thy men shall fall by the sword, and thy mighty in the war.
2 Kings 9:30 And when Jehu was come to Jezreel, Jezebel heard of it; and she painted her face, and tired her head, and looked out at a window.
1 Cor. 3:16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
1 Cor. 6:19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.
1 John 2:15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
Notice that the devil was led astray by his own vanity.
Ezek. 28:15 Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.
16 By the multitude of thy merchandise (cosmetics, rings, jewelry are merchandise) they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.
17 Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee.
Proverbs 21:2 Every way of a man is right in his own eyes: but the Lord pondereth the hearts.
But this doesn't mean that you can do whatever your heart wants. The heart of man is wicked.
Proverbs 16:2 All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes; but the Lord weigheth the spirits.
Proverbs 21:4 An high look, and a proud heart, and the plowing of the wicked, is sin.
Jer. 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
Romans 8:5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.
6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life & peace.
7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.
10 And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.
Ephesians 2:3 Among whom also we all had our conversation [conduct] in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh & of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.
James 1:14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.
15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.
16 Do not err, my beloved brethren.
17 Every good gift & every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
18 Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.
19 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:
20 For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.
21 Wherefore lay apart all filthiness & superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.
22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.
23 For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:
24 For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.
25 But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.
26 If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion is vain.
27 Pure religion & undefiled before God & the Father is this, To visit the fatherless & widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.
2 Cor. 6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.
18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons & daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
Luke 9:23 If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me
1 Peter 3:1 Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives;
2 While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear.
3 Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel;
4 But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek & quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.
5 For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands:
6 Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement.
7 Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.
1 John 3:22 And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.
1 Timothy 2:9 In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness & sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;
10 But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works.
From the above scripture, we can learn that women (and men) should not be adoring the flesh with things that puff up the flesh. The word "shamefacedness" is opposite of pride faced & lust faced & carnal faced. The Greek word is Strong's G127 - aidos which means a sense of shame or honour, modesty, bashfulness, reverence, regard for others, respect. The word comes from the idea of downcast eyes. Cosmetics showcases the eyes which is opposite of what we told by scripture to do. Cosmetics do not show respect to the men that it is drawing them into lust. Cosmetics are not bashful or modest. Cosmetics are not honorable, but are something that originated with pagans & harlots. Cosmetics does not show reverence to God nor to your husband nor to yourself. It defiles the self & defiles who you really are & replaces your God created being with a masquerade that looks just like every carnal worldly lost woman. It paints the Temple of God to look like a worldly shrine of female sexuality.
Am I stepping on some painted toes here? Am I offending you? I know I am offending many women out there. But if we are willing to seek & learn the true will of God & become the bride of Christ, without spot, without wrinkle, without blemish. It's not cosmetics that bring you to perfection, but rather only The Blood of Christ Jesus and The Holy Spirit, which will wash away all your carnal shortcomings & ways of the world. We must be pressed. Press out the world & the way of the world.
Many cosmetics are also halal certified which means it has already applied & been accepted to eventually receive the mark of the beast. Click here for more information.
There is nothing wrong with exercising & eating right. That is taking care of the temples that God gave us. But to adorn the flesh with make up, rings & necklaces is just sexual vanity or other carnal vanity whether the person wants to admit it or not.
If you disagree with this article, why don't you take this subject directly to The Creator in sincere humble fasting? The purpose of this article is to help lead my fellow mankind & brothers & sisters in Christ, to the more perfect knowledge of God & perfect will of God in Christ Jesus, that we may be in a better personal relationship with Him & to prepare the Body of Christ for the Marriage Supper of the Lamb of God. This article is written in the Name of Jesus The Christ.
Wonder how many of these 6 people think they are going to Heaven? It's all vanity & it's all against the Will of God. No difference. There is no difference between a man who paints his chest & a woman who paints her face. She just has to keep applying it. And now they even have permanent make up so she doesn't even have to do that.
