People have no idea about the blessings that come with wearing a headcover. Nicole talks about how her life has changed for the better since she started wearing one and why her husband appreciates it also. Powerful information.

  1. In the Greek, there are two words translated “cover”.
    The first is “katakalupto”. Kalupto is the root word, and it means “to
    cover.” “Kata-” is the prefix used to strengthen the root word, and it
    has the root meaning of “down.”
    Therefore, to “katakalupto” means to have something on the head which
    does more than simply “kalupto’. It must “KATAkalupto.”

    A net cap on the back or top of the head,as the Amish and Mennonites
    practice, simply put, does not qualify.
    In fact, I contend Paul was not talking about a cloth at all.
    He was talking about hair.

    Katakalupto is a verb, not a noun. All Paul was talking about when he
    used that word, was the need to BE katakalupto.
    Yes. Paul never said to take it off, or even to put it on! He only said
    to BE, or to remain, covered.
    The times a woman is to remain so, are the times when she prays or
    prophesies.

    Now, how often is a woman to pray? Is she not to “pray without ceasing”?
    In fact, if a woman feels the need to put a cloth on her head, she would
    feel she may NOT pray, until she can access that “holy cloth” that
    makes her acceptable to God! No more praying while washing the hair. No
    more praying in the night, if her cloth happened to slip off!

    In fact, if this were talking about a cloth, then men who work outdoors
    in frigid weather must risk frostbite to please their God!
    Is this the God of the Bible? no.

    The only other word translated “cover” in I Cor 11, is the word
    “Peribolaion.” It is found in verse 15.
    It is a noun! This then, is the THING which performs the ACTION of
    katakalupto!
    Peribolaion means something thrown about oneself, like a cloak.
    Paul says God has given to the woman, her glorious long hair (Greek:
    decorative tresses”) to be a peribolaion.

    God never tells us to cover our glory when appearing before Him.
    It is a Biblical principle that we are not to appear in a shameful
    manner consistently before our God.
    Only when feeling shame and repenting for sin, are we to appear
    expressing shame.

    God wants us to be glorious before Him.
    Why would it offend Him, if we let Him see something beautiful He made?
    Why would He feel threatened by our tiny glory, which only reflects His
    image?

    Now, with this in mind, read how Paul concludes the whole discussion:

    1Cor 11:13 Judge in yourselves: is it comely that a woman pray unto God uncovered?
    1Cor 11:14 Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him?
    1Cor 11:15
    But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is
    given her for a covering.

    We are NOT to appear before God in a shameful way.
    And the only shame in this passage is, amazingly, the idea that a man
    would appear before God with long, decorative hair!
    Why?
    Because God made men to be MEN.
    And long hair is effeminate.
    For a man to pray having long hair hanging down around him like a woman,
    is Scripturally like going to church in drag.

    It honors our Creator for women to have long, feminine hair. And it
    honors the Creator for men to look like men.

    Now, there is NO command in this passage for women not to trim their
    hair!
    It is adding to the Word, to try to make it say that!
    All it says, is “decorative tresses” which perform the “down” action of
    the katakalupto, when it is flung about the shoulders like a cloak.
    Anything more, and you start teaching traditions of men, and adding to
    the Word.

    • polly jetix,

      If someone covers their hair, they do it to honor, to humble themselves. So we shouldn’t condemn them. I understand you’re trying to free certain people, but who are we to say they are wrong. They don’t seem religious to me, after watching the video about how you observe Shabbat. Few lines before 1 Corinthians 11:14-15 speaks of covering your “head” Line 14-15 speaks that your hair is a covering. If they read it differently then let them. We ought to just learn to be one by a moral standard, which is love, the ten holy commandments.
      Maybe the 12 tribes of Ysrael have differences too but the holy commandments kept them as one people, one nation.

      Versus arguing about food and hair, we ought to focus on what unites us- the holy commandments. And then we can talk about the branches as food or head covering. We ought to be fast to clean our heart and mind before our outer appearance, not that doing that is wrong. That’s also written in holy scriptures.

    • polly jetix and if it wasn’t for the Jews, we wouldn’t even know about salvation. Yeshua said salvation comes from the Jews. John 4:22.

      I don’t say you are wrong though. Just saying respect one another’s differences. Unless you are telling them- not to cause enmity but to be one one with them and talk it out what’s right and wrong for us to do 🙂

    • Elizabeth Di Francesca it’s not a religion she is following. She is obeying Yahweh. Head covering is discussed in the Torah and New Testament. It is an outward and inward testament. If you listen to her, she explains very well why she is convicted by Yah to wear her covering. It has nothing to do with religion, religion is man made and men are fallible . Seek Yahweh and Be blessed 🙂

  2. I LOVE TO COVER MY HEAD, I HAVE BEEN DOING IT FOR THREE YEARS ALREADY, I FELT A CONVICTION, THIS TOPIC WILL TOUCH MANY WOMEN, IT IS A BLESSING, SHALOM.

  3. I don’t understand what is the purpose covering the hair if a husband does not support the idea? If asked the wife to do it , it’s one thing but if he doesn’t want her to cover her head, let it be. Elohim did not give anybody a dress code, did He? Just dress modestly, that’s all. Where do these rules come from if not from one’s head?

    • Mariya Yes Yahweh did give us a dress code, He wants you to seek out the truth. Search the scriptures dear, and you will become quite the scholar. You are in the right place. Keep questioning like we are supposed to. Be blessed 🙂

  4. This is really beautiful, Elohim has been talking to me about modesty, my whole wardrobe has completely change. I only wear skirts and cover my sholders when wearing tops- no jewellery no make up. Women we can remove what the external world sees as beautiful, we are beautiful in the eyes of our Father
    I have browm long hair, and I definitely feel exposed when i have it out of a bun or ponytail. At church i keep it wrapped up.
    Praise Yahshua that He is speaking to our hearts about all things.
    I go to a seventh day adventist church was Baptised as a Christian last year in December but Yahweh has been changing me and bringing me close to him and His Word for the last year (brought me back was a Christian as a teenager now 25)
    Torah Ministries have been one of the vessels that have assisted in my growth as a beliver. Diet really convicted me!! I have been a “vegan” for nearly a year- It is so clear about keeping this Gift of your body as “unspotted from the worlds” (James 1:27) as possible through Yahshua who strengthen us.

    Continue to strive to live according His will and spread His Word.
    Happy Sabbath

  5. she said her husband went” uh oh”, when she went out with a braid. There is some psychology attached to the various reasons for headcovering, regardless of religion.Womens natural inclination is to make themselves pretty in little ways, even when all they could do was put flowers in their hair. I see this lady’s point of view, and she has found it a very useful practice, but each person to their own.🌸🌸🌸

  6. I have a question please. 1 Cor 11:14-15. These verses seem to say that the man should have short hair and the woman should have long hair and the long hair is her covering? Can you explain why women need additional covering other than their long hair? Thank you.

  7. Head coverings are beautiful and wearing one feels great just as it should. But I don’t agree with not wearing earrings…where is the commandment for that to make them sinful?

  8. i began covering my hair in 2005, and recieved a lot of comments like ” why do you put a bag over your head” lol…..maybe its helped me stay single lol

  9. I wonder if she wasn’t recognized by others that know her. When I hide my hair people who see me everyday barely even recognize me at all. It would have been nice to know how that worked out for her.

  10. Yes, there are many reasons why women wear a head covering. Strange that Rebekah, of old, when she saw Isaac Gen 24:65, she then ‘covered’ herself, “For she had said unto the servant, ‘What man is this that walketh in the field to meet us?’ And the servant had said, ‘It is my master’: therefore she took a vail, and covered herself.’

    Be it as it may the head covering, according to 1Cor 11 has nothing to do with modesty; it is a sign of being under the authority of her husband him being accountable for what she happens to pray or prophesy in public. The same can be said concerning members of the forces; the badge indicates the one responsible for the member’s behaviour whilst in uniform.

    God the Father is only protecting Christian women from ever again being blamed as did Adam, Gen 3:12, “And the man said, ‘The woman whom Thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.'”

    It is for this reason Christian women may not teach 1Ti 2:8-, “So then I would have the MEN everywhere pray, lifting to God holy hands which are unstained with anger or strife; and I would have the women dress becomingly, with modesty and self-control, not with plaited hair or gold or pearls or costly clothes, but–as befits women making a claim to godliness–with the ornament of good works.

    “A woman should quietly learn from others with entire submissiveness. I do not permit a woman to teach, nor have authority over a man, but she must remain silent. For Adam was formed first, and then Eve; and Adam was not deceived, but his wife was thoroughly deceived, and so became involved in transgression.

    “Yet a woman will be brought safely through childbirth if she and her husband continue to live in faith and love and growing holiness, with habitual self-restraint.”

    Do note the, “Yet a woman will be brought safely through childbirth…” and compare it with Gen 3:16, “Unto the woman He said, ‘I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.'”

    Christian women have found favour in the eyes of God the Father; they are the apple of his eye as is written Eph 5:25-, “The husbands! love your own wives, as also the Christ did love the assembly, and did give Himself for it, that He might sanctify it, having cleansed it with the bathing of the water in the saying, ‘That He might present it to Himself the assembly in glory, not having spot or wrinkle, or any of such things, but that it may be holy and unblemished,’ so ought the husbands to love their own wives as their own bodies: he who is loving his own wife–himself he doth love; for no one ever his own flesh did hate, but doth nourish and cherish it, as also the Lord–the assembly…”

    Should a Christian woman wish to pray or prophesy only then she is required to have a head covering. If what she prays or prophesies is not acceptable to her husband, for he is accountable for what she says, he must intervene.

    Do note 1Co 14:34-, “Let your women be silent in the churches; for it is not permitted to them to speak, but to be in subjection, as the Law also says.

    “And if they desire to learn anything, let them ask their husbands at home; for it is a shame for a woman to speak in a church. Or did the Word of God go out from you? Or did it reach only to you? If anyone thinks to be a prophet, or a spiritual one, let him recognize the things I write to you, that they are a commandment of the Lord.

    “But if any is ignorant, let him be ignorant.”

    Do note, “…as the Law also says,” and read Num 30 and consider Jdg 11:30-, “And Jephthah vowed a vow to Jehovah, and said, If You will indeed give the sons of Ammon into my hand, then it shall be that whatever comes out from the doors of my house to meet me when I return in peace from the sons of Ammon, surely it shall belong to Jehovah, or I will offer it up instead of a burnt offering…

    “And Jephthah came to Mizpeh to his house, and, behold, his daughter came out to meet him with timbrels and with dances. And she was his only child. Besides her he had neither son nor daughter.

    “And it happened when he saw her, he tore his clothes and said, Alas, my daughter! You have brought me very low, and you are one of those who trouble me. For I have opened my mouth to Jehovah, and I cannot go back. And she said to him, My father, you have opened your mouth to the Lord; do to me according to that which has come out of your mouth, because Jehovah has taken vengeance for you upon your enemies, even of the sons of Ammon…”

    Christian women has been intrusted with a the most important task; the raising of tomorrow’s husband’s @ http://www.myhand.co.za/2011/11/30/personality-development-mother-goose/
