Edited 2/17/2014 7:42 AM Be aware that more important is doing judgment and doing justice than just having long hair. This may be a false doctrine of demons. With that warning said…
Someone was asking about this just today and I have moved it to here to find it easier. It was originally published several months ago.
I have edited this letter by removing names of people and adding more direct quotes form Scripture and adjusting the names of God from God to YHWH and Jesus to Yahushua. I have added a few scriptures that direct the attention to the pertinent facts and issues. And I have created new paragraphs and added emphasis and italics and bold where ever I thought it would add impact to the statements. Thank you.— I look forward to your comments etc.
The Edited letter now begins:
And this is WHY I don’t cut my hair for those of u who don’t understand why it is so important to me.
For the Ladies: But if a woman have long hair, it is a “glory” to her: *(for her hair is given her for a covering).
This is a note that a young lady, (name withheld for privacy) from TX wrote. This is AMAZING!
Thursday, April 16, 2009 at 10:13 pm WOW!!! I didn’t know that a simple status update would lead to this! However, I LOVE to share my testimony,and never even thought about doing it with all my Facebook friend. I would like to say that this is MY conviction, MY belief, and MY interpretation of the Word of YHWH. If you don’t believe it, that is fine by me. However, please have the decency to withhold all negative criticisms since this is is really my heartbeat!
A few years ago, I had a knot in my hair that took mother over four hours to get out.
I decided right then and there that I needed to know WHY I didn’t cut my hair!
I know it was “my glory”, but I was thinking, right about then, that maybe I didn’t need all that “glory”!
I began to do an in depth study on hair to understand why the Lord would ask this of us.
I went to a hair conference that was very enlightening!
Proverbs 29:18 says, “Where there is no revelation, the people cast off restraint; but blessed is he who keeps the law.”
(the King James version says
(Prov 29:18 [KJV])
Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.
Many people discard so many of our beliefs because they do not have the revelation. I did not have one at this time! I began to pray for one!
Ezekiel 28 talks about a war being waged in the spirit realm about holiness. Lucifer had a very special place of anointed ministry, and his primary function was being a covering cherub. The cherubim, seem to be particularly assigned to the responsibility of guarding the glory of YHWH. Lucifer, being the anointed cherub, was set forth as the chief guardian of the glory of YHWH.
Ezekiel 28 14 says that YHWH put him in the p lace of delegated authority. He was honored above all of the other angels, so what could have been the root of his rebellion?
(Ezek 28:14 [KJV])
Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of YHWH; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.
(Ezek 28:15 [KJV])
Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.
Ezekiel 28:17 declares: “Thine heart was lifted up because of thine beauty, thou has corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness.”
(Ezek 28:17 [KJV])
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.
Vanity caused him to become so proud of his outward magnificence that it began to overshadow his relationship with his Maker.
When Lucifer was cast out, he lost his covering.
YHWH delegated Lucifer’s guardianship of the glory of YHWH to the woman. 1st Corinthians 11 10 and 15 says “For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels. But if a woman have long hair, it is a GLORY to her: for; her hair is given her for a COVERING.”
so to this day, Satan tempts mankind, especially women over and over to tamper with the covering because it symbolizes to him everything he lost.
A woman’s hair signals to the spirit world whether she is in rebellion or ins submission.
The angels can tell by looking at her. That is why it is so important for us not to even trim our hair. The purpose is not to have long hair, it is to be in submission to the word of YHWH by not cutting your hair at all.
What is one of the first things a woman does when she backslides? She cuts her hair, losing her glory just like Lucifer did when he was cast out.
She is now separated from YHWH just like he is.
The only other place that you see the covering, the angels, and the glory mentioned together is in the Ark of the Covenant. The mercy seat covered the law. The cherubim, ( the midst of the cherubim was the glory of YHWH.
(Num 4:5 [KJV])
And when the camp setteth forward, Aaron shall come, and his sons, and they shall take down the covering vail, and cover the ark of testimony with it:
(Exod 40:21 [KJV])
And he brought the ark into the tabernacle, and set up the vail of the covering, and covered the ark of the testimony; as the LORD commanded Moses.
(Exod 35:12 [KJV])
The ark, and the staves thereof, with the mercy seat, and the vail of the covering,
[(Editor note: I can’t find this in Scripture yet. The statement appears to be speculation. It may be true, or it may not be true, I don’t know.)
If ever the covering, the mercy seat was removed from the Ark, the angels were removed with it. They were attached to the covering. The glory, mercy, and presence of YHWH were removed as well, leaving only naked law; no mercy.
To forfeit the covering was to forfeit divine protection! ]
The woman as YHWH created her, is the picture of the Church – The Law on the inside; the covering of her submission to that law on the outside; the mercy and the angels covering her; and the glory and the presence of YHWH dwelling as the covered bride of Yahushua Christ.
The protection is not only for the woman but also for her family!
Ezekiel 10 indicates that where ever the glory was the cherubim was as well. In verse 18 and 19, when the glory of the Lord departed from the house of the temple, the cherubim lifted up their wings and departed also. They were committed to the glory!
(Ezek 10:18 [KJV])
Then the glory of the LORD departed from off the threshold of the house, and stood over the cherubims.
(Ezek 10:19 [KJV])
And the cherubims lifted up their wings, and mounted up from the earth in my sight: when they went out, the wheels also were beside them, and every one stood at the door of the east gate of the LORD’S house; and the glory of the YHWH of Israel was over them above.
We are the temple of the Holy Ghost
(John 2:21 [KJV])
But he spake of the temple of his body.
and we have the glory as long as we are in submission through obedience with uncut hair.
(1Cor 6:17 [KJV])
But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.
(1Cor 6:18 [KJV])
Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.
(1Cor 6:19 [KJV])
What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of YHWH, and ye are not your own?
(1Cor 6:20 [KJV])
For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify YHWH in your body, and in your spirit, which are YHWH’s.
When a woman cuts her hair, she actually severs the glory of YHWH from her life. (Editor note: Sampson lost his strenght when his hair was cut.
(Judg 16:17 [KJV])
That he told her all his heart, and said unto her, There hath not come a razor upon mine head; for I have been a Nazarite unto YHWH from my mother’s womb: if I be shaven, then my strength will go from me, and I shall become weak, and be like any other man.
The angels will lift and depart, for they are committed to the glory. Where there is no glory, the angels are absent, leaving only harsh judgment.
Have you ever noticed that the armor of YHWH does not make a provision for the back?
(Eph 6:10 [KJV])
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
(Eph 6:11 [KJV])
Put on the whole armour of YHWH, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
(Eph 6:12 [KJV])
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
(Eph 6:13 [KJV])
Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of YHWH, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
(Eph 6:14 [KJV])
Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
(Eph 6:15 [KJV])
And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
(Eph 6:16 [KJV])
Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
(Eph 6:17 [KJV])
And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of YHWH:
(Eph 6:18 [KJV])
Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
(Eph 6:19 [KJV])
And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,
Isaiah 58:8 says that the glory of the Lord shall be our rearguard!
(Isa 58:8 [KJV])
Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the LORD shall be thy rereward.
(Titus 2:4 [KJV])
That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,
(Titus 2:5 [KJV])
To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of YHWH be not blasphemed.
(Titus 2:6 [KJV])
Young men likewise exhort to be sober minded.
Titus 2:5 says that women are to be “keepers at home”. This phrase in the Greek language has a much deeper meaning that simply housekeeping, cooking, cleaning, etc. It also means “ a guard, to beware”.
Ladies, your job description involves more that housekeeping. You are to be a guard that will beware of any evil that would try to come into your homes. We can actually open up our homes for evil spirits to come in if we are in rebellion.
Your uncut hair brings protection to the entire family. The devil is the ultimate liar. So, before you cut your hair, ask yourself, “ Why am I doing this?” and “ How will this affect my family?” Do you dare forfeit divine protection for the sake of vanity? Sometimes in the darkest trials of your life, you will feel the urge to cut your hair. During the hardest trial that I have ever been through I was on my floor in the bathroom sobbing for hours. I felt the strongest urge to cut my hair, not to get it styled, but whacked off.
There was a spirit fighting HARD for me to : “Just shock everyone, just cut it!” Thank YHWH that I did not give in because if the devil can just get you to cut your hair, he has stripped away your army of angels that were protecting you. What a comfort it is to know that the angels of the Lord are encamping around about our families, diligently on guard against any intrusion of the enemy forces. I cannot always be with my husband or my children 24 hours a day, but pray the armor of YHWH on them, and ask for the angels of the Lord to encamp around about them.
We can ask this with confidence if we are in obedience to YHWH’s Word and have not severed the glory in our lives. Only eternity will reveal how many times your family was protected because of this promise of power on your head.
There was a serious car accident. When he was brought into the emergency room, the doctors did not even work on him because they said he was too far gone. They left to go work on other patients that they thought had a better chance of survival. Somehow , this frantic mother managed to get into her son’s room along with her husband. As she stood at his bedside, she began to pray.
She reminded YHWH of how a scissors had never touched her hair.
She prayed thee promise of 1st Corinthians 11:10 and claimed the power that was available to her because of the angels.
YHWH heard that prayer, and immediately things began to happen. The doctors came back, expecting to see a young man who possibly was dead. Instead, they found that he had regained consciousness and was responding. Within a matter of days, this young man was out of the hospital. His mother had guarded the glory, and she had power on her head because of the angels!
Upon hearing this story from (name withheld for privacy) years before I read it again in Ruth Rieder’s book, I began to pray for my son. (name withheld for privacy) He had the most severe form of asthma. He took six breathing treatments that lasted about then -fifteen minutes each treatment. Phillip and I were literally afraid to sleep at night fearing that, that would be the night he couldn’t be able to catch his breath and we wouldn’t know. Anytime he would do something active, such as jump on the trampoline he would just st art throwing up, and he couldn’t stop or breather. I would physically take the stress of staying up with an infant on top of all this with (name withheld for privacy). So, when I heard this story , I went home, I let my hair down, and I began to pray the same prayer that this lady had. I plead the blood over (name withheld for privacy). He was miraculously healed. A couple of weeks without any treatments, and no attacks. I testified in church of the miracle YHWH had done.
That night (name withheld for privacy) had the worst attack that he had ever had.
The doctor told us that there was nothing else he could do, and more medicine would mess (name withheld for privacy) up. He told us that we would just have to start taking him to the ER every time we saw one coming on. So, I was thinking, “OK. YHWH, I KNOW that you healed him.”
So, I did the same thing, I prayed again he same prayer, Again (name withheld for privacy) was miraculously healed, and I mean Healed all the way completely healed! So I waited about a month, when I was sure, and I testified again. Again THAT NIGHT (name withheld for privacy) had another attack. It hit me like a ton of bricks that this was an all out war with the Devil.
(1John 4:4 [KJV])
Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
He was scared to death of me getting a hold of this revelation. This happened 3 more times. I mean the very night I would testify, (name withheld for privacy) would just get a horrible attack. My husband told me to stop testifying or (name withheld for privacy) was going to die. So, one night I just started rebuking the devil in Yahushua’s name, and I told him that it didn’t matter haw many times we had to do this, that it was too late, I already know the power that I had in my hair. And that he might as well leave me alone, and He did. He has not had one more attack to this day. YHWH has miraculously healed the boy, too. He had begun to start breaking out in a horrible whelps all over his body. We couldn’t figure out what was happening. When we discovered it was latex, the doctor told us that his reaction s were so severe that an inhalation ( like a balloon) could be fatal. O, right. How was I going to keep my three year old away from balloons or make him understand that he could die if he tried to blow one up? So, I have to say,. I’m not afraid to ask my heavenly father for anything! He as never let me down !!! So I did the same thing I layed my hair over his little body and prayed. Since then, not one break out!!!
We have power through our uncut hair!
Women, isn’t’ there something in your life you would like to have the victory over? Let your hair down, Walk around your house. Lay your hair over your children!!! When your un-saved husband is sleeping, lay your glory over that man and use that power you have with the angels!!! If your body is in pain. If your finances are in trouble, if your marriage is on the rocks, if your children are straying from this truth. WHATEVER you need WE HAVE THE POWER!!!! (name withheld for privacy) is old enough to understand, and when I talk to him about it he becomes very emotional. He’s not embarrassed of my hair, he knows that because I was submissive to the Word of YHWH and didn’t cut my hair he can have a normal childhood without six breathing treatments a day. No drugs in his little body. Ladies, WE HAVE THE POWER!!!!!!!!! Whatever your need is, whatever your problem is!!!
There is a story that Bro. Stoneking tells about a woman who heard a scream, she ran to the window and looked down, and her child was standing in the grass besides a woman trembling. The lady said, “ You left you window open and your child climbed onto the ledge. He fell down two stories, but there was a man standing there who caught him. The man disappeared; I don’t know where he went.” This mother had power on her head because of the angels. There are times when this power is at work on our behalf when we are not even aware of it. Our hair is our covering, just think of it like an umbrella. Oh,yes, we are going to walk through storms, but we are protected!!!!!!!!!!
I just want to thank the Lord for this huge responsibility and awesome privilege! WE’RE COMING AFTER WHAT BELONGS TO US!!! WE HAVE THE POWER!!!
This was not meant to condemn, judge, or offend anyone that has cut or cuts their hair. This was meant as encouragement to all my Pentecostal ladies/friends who do not cut their hair. I love you all!!! by (Name withheld for privacy)
