HEAD COVERINGS (esp.Women)

SHALOM!

The issue of head coverings has always been one of concern but in actual fact it is straight forward. One needs to study more about the Israelite Hebrew culture which has been maintained from Biblical times to-date.

The Holy Biblical Scriptures as quoted below say that women should have their heads covered particularly when in YAHUVEH GOD’S Presence.

In the Land of Israel and/or Hebrew/Tradition, married women cover their heads most, if not all day long whether at home or not. This is the symbol of marriage to everyone around when walking on the streets. It is a sign of respect to their husbands. It is a symbol that signifies that the married woman has a boss over (a.k.a the head). If a married woman doesn’t wear it, she dishonours her husband.

The single women are not obliged to wear one while still bachelorettes but can wear one if they please.

In Jewish/Hebrew tradition, the men wear head coverings called yarmulke/kippah (plural is kippot). They do this as a sign of honour into YAH Almighty. They also do it on the basis of the instructions given to Moses regarding the garments of the Priests and High Priests. They had head coverings particularly when going into the Tabernacle and Temple.

As per 1 Peter 2:9, YAHUSHUA’S believers and followers are (spiritual) Priests. We therefore have a requirement to have our heads covered in the same way.

Today, Jews/ Hebrew Israelites believe they can find themselves praying at any time of day aside from the main three times (morning, afternoon and night) a day that Prophet Daniel and many others, such as the Apostles of YAHUSHUA did. So, the men wear their head coverings most, if not all the time. Further on, they wear it as a symbol of their Jewish FAITH (with wisdom, beware of anti-semitism).

ABBA YAHUVEH / YAHWEH GOD has spoken Prophetically through Apostle/ Prophet Elisheva Eliyahu (of AMIGHTYWIND MINISTRY) to ask all WOMEN to have their HEADS COVERED when approaching ABBA YAHUVEH’S / YAHWEH’S Throne to Pray, Praise and Worship, etc.

In this Ministry, we therefore advise all WOMEN to COVER their HEADS with a PRAYER SHAWL and/or ordinary HEAD-SCARF before Praying, Singing Praises and Worship to YAH. Additionally, we also encourage covering one’s head most,If not all the time as a sign of honour into YAHUVEH GOD!

Men are also advised to use a YARMULKE /  KIPPAH (skull cap) and a PRAYER SHAWL to COVER their HEADS as form of HONOUR to YAHUVEH / YAHWEH GOD keeping in mind that YAH is greater than them. This can be seen in the Book of Exodus where YAHUVEH / YAHWEH GOD commands Moses to make the HIGH PRIEST’S and Other PRIESTS’ GARMENTS. A HEAD COVERING was included.

The following are the Holy Scriptures which talk about head coverings:

1 Corinthians 11:2-16 Tree of Life Version (TLV)

Headship and Coverings

Now I praise you because you remember me in everything and hold firm the traditions just as I passed them on to you. But I want you to know that the head of every man is MESSIAH (YAHUSHUA), and the HEAD OF THE WOMAN is the MAN, and THE HEAD OF MESSIAH is (YAHUVEH / YAHWEH) GOD. Every MAN praying or prophesying with his HEAD covered dishonors his HEAD. But every WOMAN praying or prophesying with her HEAD uncovered dishonors her HEAD. For it is one and the same as having been shaved. For if a WOMAN does not cover her head, let her cut off her HAIR. But if it is shameful for a WOMAN to have her HAIR cut off or to be shaved, let her cover her HEAD.

For surely a MAN ought not to cover his HEAD, since he is the image and GLORY of (YAHUVEH / YAHWEH) GOD.[a] But the WOMAN is the GLORY of MAN. For MAN is not from WOMAN, but WOMAN from MAN. Neither was MAN created for the WOMAN’S sake, but woman for the MAN’S sake. [b] 10 For this reason the WOMAN ought to have a SYMBOL of AUTHORITY on her HEAD, because of the ANGELS. 11 In any case—in the Lord (YAHUVEH / YAHWEH) —WOMAN is not independent of MAN and MAN is not independent of WOMAN. 12 For just as the WOMAN came from the MAN, so also the MAN comes through the WOMAN—but all things are from (YAHUVEH / YAHWEH) GOD.

13 Judge for yourselves—is it proper for a WOMAN to pray to (YAHUVEH / YAHWEH) GOD with her HEAD uncovered? 14 Doesn’t the NATURAL ORDER of things[c] teach you—if a MAN has long HAIR, it is a disgrace for him; 15 but if a WOMAN has long HAIR, it is her glory, for her hair was given to her as a COVERING. 16 But if anyone intends to be contentious, we have no such custom—nor do (YAHUVEH’S / YAHWEH’S) GOD’S communities.
