Bible Standards of the Purified Remaining Church

Imagine!  When all industry promoting the last word in glamour around the world are destroyed by fire, when her supermodels and jet set have passed away like a trail of vapor, when all profane fashion designers are but dust and ashes, and when the makers, promoters, and sellers of jewelry, makeup, and sensual trends are perished from the earth, then the remaining church having passed through the fire will no longer concern themselves with their vanities.   

Salon sculpted eyebrows, the most recent eyeliner technique, or which makeup foundation seems most natural will be so old-world.  The cut and color -- obsolete -- will no longer be associated with women’s hairdos.  Instead, natural length, simple femininity, and glory will describe our ladies’ tresses.   

Name brands in vogue today will be decidedly passé to the remnant.  Words describing dress such as “hot,” “cool,” “trendy,” “sassy,” “curvy,” “leggy,” “revealing,” “split,” “low cut,” or “short” will be considered so yesterday.   

The new fashion will be quality which reflects modesty, humility, and sobriety.  And it will not be a passing seasonal fad.  The popular “name brand” on many items will be Holiness Unto The Lord™!   

The remaining church with a passion for this beauty of holiness will display Bible standards to the survivors on earth.  And this fashion standard will be backed by the Lawgiver who designed it.  For He will rule the nations with a rod of iron.

Note:  The coming fire means different things to the world and to the church.  To the world it will be judgment fire.  To the church it shall be refining fire.  All works of wood, hay, and stubble will eventually burn up and pass away.  Only works of gold, silver, and precious jewels will survive, be purified, and will shine even brighter throughout eternity.  
Remember, precious flock, the lesson found in the great flood, in the plagues of Egypt, and in Sodom.  Every time God’s judgments rained down upon the earth, God mercifully protected His elect.  Look up, for your redemption draweth nigh!
