Bible Law on Clothing
and
Personal Appearance

   The Ten Commandments were given in Exodus 20. 1-17. (and repeated in Deuteronomy 5) At the end of Exodus 20 God talks about, how to build an altar.

Exodus 20:24-26

24 An altar of earth thou shalt make unto me, and shalt sacrifice thereon thy burnt offerings, and thy peace offerings, thy sheep, and thine oxen: in all places where I record my name I will come unto thee, and I will bless thee. 

25 And if thou wilt make me an altar of stone, thou shalt not build it of hewn stone: for if thou lift up thy tool upon it, thou hast polluted it.

26 Neither shalt thou go up by steps unto mine altar, that thy nakedness be not discovered thereon.

   When designing a modern building it is sometimes necessary to design a stairway so people can not 'accidentally' look up a woman's skirt. When it comes to clothing, does God like to have a lot of skin showing as with modern fashions? 

   Have you noticed the clothing of action heroes.  The 'good guys' wear tight fitting clothing and show much skin as possible. For example, Wonder Woman, Superman, Bat Man, Xena Warrior Princess. 

 

   The bad guys wear lots of lose fitting clothing. For example, in Star Wars, Lord Vader and Emperor Palpatine.

   In one scene Princess Lea said of Emperor Palpatine, "He is so old he's ancient." In the Bible, who is The ancient of Days'?

Daniel 7:9 I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire.

Daniel 7:13 I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him.

Daniel 7:22 Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom.

   Movies are filled with symbolism and hidden meaning such as Emperor Palpatine being The Ancient of Days. But Palpatine was dressed in black rather than white.

   In the movie Wizard of Oz, there were five characters. (1 ) The Wizard, (2) Dorothy, (3) the Scare Crow,(4) the Tin Man, (5) and the Lion. Likewise in Star Wars.

   Movies are loaded with hidden Bible connections. One you see over and over in a multitude of ways is, "The Gathering Of The Elect," the other is "The Casting Down".

 Matthew 24:31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather  together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

Revelation 12:10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.

   Many movies begin with a 'gathering of elect'. An example is the old World War movie, Dirty Dozen. Twelve criminals with special talent to do a special job. The gathering may be just one special person or group. 

  The end of many movies features a casting down. The Emperor in Star Wars, The Joker in Bat Man.  The bad guy is always on top of some high place such as a cliff or building. There is a struggle. And the bad guy gets cast down. 

Isaiah 14:12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!

 

Question 1: What do you think; if Jesus or Moses were to appear before you, how would they be dressed, more like Superman and Wonder Woman, (tight clothing with lots of exposed skin) or more like Lord Darth Vader and Emperor Palpitine (Fully covered with lose fitting clothing)? 

  Like Superman and Wonder Woman.

  Like Lord Darth Vader and Emperor Palpitine?
