It may be correct to say the Bible didn’t condemn the use of nose jewels, tattoos, bracelets, ankle chains and all others, but there is certainly a bigger problem in the use of these items of fashion for beatification.
Permit me to state here that, if you are spiritually inclined, you may be privileged to know that items like Gold, Diamond, Silva, Bronze, Copper etc are highly spiritually sensitive! And they have a way of influencing people’s attitude, behaviour and by extension, outward appearance! This is where the problem of too much involvement in the use of these items comes from.
To justify this assertion with the scripture, let’s take a read from Isaiah 3:16-23. The Bible says that the daughters of Zion became haughty, and this was basically because of the too many items of beautification available at their disposal!
At some point, the daughters of Zion began to see themselves as extremely gorgeous and that made them feel “arrogant and disdainful!” They began to see themselves too much to bring themselves down to obey simple instructions from God.
Apparently, these items of beatification are capable of having an overwhelming influence on people’s subconscious minds, especially females and in consequence, it affects the level of spiritual concentration and commitment they have when it comes to worshipping God. And this is exactly where we are now in the church of God! People now find it difficult to submit themselves to obey the tenets of the church.
This was why the first thing God did in the scripture in Isaiah chapter 3 was to strip the daughters of Zion of those items of beatification. The list of those items was absolutely absurd!
Honestly, this generation should learn how to relate more to the Bible. The Bible is not just some storybook, everything in it must repeat itself in every generation. And any generation that loses touch with the scripture is heading for destruction because the days of doom must surely come!
My word for this generation is that we should avoid anything capable of distracting our attention from concentrating on worshipping God. The devil is remarkably crafty in making people feel strongly comfortable and justified with the things they do, even while provoking the anger of God, just like the daughters of Zion. This is why the Bible warned us to abstain from every appearance of evil! The devil is using most of these things to separate people from God!
The Good Spirit of the Lord will continue to direct us in Jesus’ name.
