The Truth About Patriotism And Nationalism [YAHUWAH]

Patriotism
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patriotism

“Patriotism is a devotion to one’s country, excluding differences caused by the dependencies of the term’s meaning upon context, geography and philosophy. In a generalized sense applicable to all countries and peoples, patriotism is a devotion to one’s country.”

“It is a related sentiment to nationalism.[1][2][3]”

Nationalism
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nationalism

“Nationalism is a political ideology that involves a strong identification of a group of individuals with a nation. There are two main perspectives on the origins and basis of nationalism, one is the primordialist perspective that describes nationalism as a reflection of the ancient and perceived evolutionary tendency of humans to organize into distinct grouping based on an affinity of birth; the other is the modernist perspective that describes nationalism as a recent phenomenon that requires the structural conditions of modern society, in order to exist.[1]”

“National flags, national anthems, and other symbols of national identity are commonly considered highly important symbols of the national community.[4][5][6][7]”

Shauwl Was A Yahuwdy
Acts 21:39

“But Shauwl (Paul) said, I am a man which am a Yahuwdy of Tarsus, a city in Cilicia, a citizen of no mean city: and, I beseech thee, suffer me to speak unto the people.”

Philippians 3:4-5

4 “Though I might also have confidence in the flesh. If any other man thinketh that he hath whereof he might trust in the flesh, I more: 5 Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Yahsharahal, of the tribe of Banyamyan (Benjamin), an Abary of Abaryam; as touching the law, a Pharisee;”

Shauwl (Paul) Was Also A Roman Citizen
Acts 22:24-25; 28-29

24 “The chief captain commanded him to be brought into the castle, and bade that he should be examined by scourging; that he might know wherefore they cried so against him. 25 And as they bound him with thongs, Shauwl (Paul) said unto the centurion that stood by, Is it lawful for you to scourge a man that is a Roman, and uncondemned?”

28 And the chief captain answered, With a great sum obtained I this freedom, And Shauwl said, But I was free born. 29 Then straightway they departed from him which should have examined him: and the chief captain also was afraid, after he knew that he was a Roman, and because he had bound him.”

Shauwl was a bloodline Abary Yahsharahalite, but Shauwl used to his advantage the fact that he was born a Roman citizen to appeal to the centurion and chief captain to treat him as a Roman citizen under the law.

The Patriotism And Nationalism Of The Saints

1 Peter 2:11 “Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul;”

Ephesians 2:19 “Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of Yahuwah;”

There are those who are advocates and activist under the banner of “patriotism” and “nationalism” for their individual countries and their hope to restore said countries to what they consider would be a better or former state, but the saints should not view themselves as patriots or nationalist who join forces to preserve or salvage what is left of this debase world, but the saints should view themselves as strangers and pilgrims in a foreign land because our allegiance is to Yahuwah and Yahuwshuwah. The saints have no country until Yahuwah gathers His people out of the countries they are now slaves in. Our citizenship is with the saints in the house of Yahuwah. The saints are to obey the laws of their countries as long as they are not in conflict with the laws of Yahuwah.

The U.S. Right To Petition
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Right_to_petition_in_the_United_States

“In the United States the right to petition is guaranteed by the First Amendment to the federal constitution, which specifically prohibits Congress from abridging “the right of the people…to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

“Although often overlooked in favor of other more famous freedoms, and sometimes taken for granted,[1] many other civil liberties are enforceable against the government only by exercising this basic right.[2] The right to petition is a fundamental in a Constitutional Republic, such as the United States, as a means of protecting public participation in government.[1]”

“While the prohibition of abridgement of the right to petition originally referred only to the federal legislature (the Congress) and courts, the incorporation doctrine later expanded the protection of the right to its current scope, over all state and federal courts and legislatures and the executive branches of the state[8] and federal governments. The right to petition includes under its umbrella the right to sue the government,[9] and the right of individuals, groups and possibly corporations[10] to lobby the government.”

“Some litigants have contended that the right to petition the government includes a requirement that the government listen to or respond to members of the public. This view was rejected by the United States Supreme Court in 1984:

“Nothing in the First Amendment or in this Court’s case law interpreting it suggests that the rights to speak, associate, and petition require government policymakers to listen or respond to communications of members of the public on public issues.”[11]”

Reference 11: Minnesota Board for Community Colleges v. Knight, 465 U.S. 271 (1984).

“The Rulers Won’t Hearken To Your Voice”
Chanuwk (Enoch) 103:12-15

12 “They have had dominion over us that hated us and smote us; And to those that hated us we have bowed our necks but they pitied us not. 13 We desired to get away from them that we might escape and at rest, But found no place where unto we should flee and be safe from them. 14 And we complained to the rulers in our tribulation, and cried out against those who devoured us; but they did not attend to our cries, and would not hearken to our voice, 15 And they helped those who robbed us and devoured us and those who made us few; and they concealed their oppression, and they did not remove from us the yoke of those that devoured us and dispersed us and murdered us, and they concealed their murder, and remembered not that they had lifted up their hands against us.”

We Can Appeal To The Secular Government About Our Persecution

It is not a sin to appeal to the elected government officials in a time of persecution for relief. The saints can use the proper legal channels to approach the secular government in the proper manner. Every government official and organization the saints appeal to that knowingly turns a blind eye or knowingly refuse to help them in their persecution will be written down in the books of Yahuwah. The prophecy says the people of Yahuwah will ask them for help, but they help those who persecute the saints. How can this prophecy come to pass if the saints do not ask them for help and make them aware of whatever the problem is? They will not be able to claim they did not know that this or that was going on. However, be aware that there is a 1984 Supreme Court ruling which states they do not have to listen to or respond to you which in my opinion undermines the whole purpose of the right to petition.

Warning: Foreigners Will Be Viewed With Suspicion
The Japanese-American Internment
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_American_internment

“Japanese-American internment was the relocation and internment by the United States government in 1942 of about 110,000 Japanese Americans and Japanese who lived along the Pacific coast of the United States to camps called “War Relocation Camps,” in the wake of Imperial Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor.[1][2] The internment of Japanese Americans was applied unequally throughout the United States. All who lived on the West Coast of the United States were interned, while in Hawaii, where the 150,000-plus Japanese Americans composed over one-third of the population, an estimated 1,200[3] to 1,800 were interned.[4] Of those interned, 62% were American citizens.[5][6]”

“The internment of Japanese Americans has sometimes been compared to the persecutions, expulsions, and dislocations of other ethnic minorities in the context of World War II, in Europe and Asia.[109][110][111][112] An estimated 500,000 Volga Germans were rounded up and deported to Siberia and Kazakhstan when Germany invaded the Soviet Union, with many of them dying en route.[109] The Volga Germans were deported prior to the Battle of Stalingrad, as they were regarded, in the “war hysteria of the moment”, as a potential “Fifth Column”.[110]”

“In 1944, the Red Army rounded up about 500,000 Chechens and Ingushes for relocation; a third of this population perished in the first year, from starvation, cold, and disease.[111] Other nationalities which faced ethnic cleansing for having been identified as potential collaborators with the Germans were the Balkars, Crimean Tartars, Karachi, Kalmyks, and Meskhetians.[112]”

The Internment Of The Jews
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nazi_concentration_camps

“Nazi Germany maintained concentration camps (in German Konzentrationslager, or KZ) throughout the territories it controlled. The first Nazi concentration camps set up in Germany were greatly expanded after the Reichstag fire of 1933, and were intended to hold political prisoners and opponents of the regime. The term was borrowed from the British concentration camps of the Second Anglo-Boer War.”

“The number of camps quadrupled between 1939 and 1942 to 300+,[1] as slave-laborers from across Europe, Jews, political prisoners, criminals, homosexuals, gypsies, the mentally ill and others were incarcerated,[2] generally without judicial process. Holocaust scholars draw a distinction between concentration camps (described in this article) and extermination camps, which were established by the Nazis for the industrial-scale mass murder of the predominantly Jewish ghetto and concentration camp populations.”

The Ten Days Prophecy
Revelation 2:10

10 “Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer; behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried, and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.”

The saints in the first century were warned that they would be cast into prison for their faith and that whatever they were about to suffer in the prisons would lead to death for some of the saints. The tribulation of the prisons would last for ten days.

The Day-Year Principle

Numbers 14:34

“ After the number of the days in which ye searched the land, even forty days, each day for a year, shall ye bear your iniquities, even forty years, and ye shall know my breach of promise.”

Yachazaqaal (Ezekiel) 4:5-6

“For I have laid upon thee the years of their iniquity, according to the number of the days, three hundred and ninety days: so shalt thou bear the iniquity of the house of Yahsharahal. 6 And when thou hast accomplished them, lie again on thy right side, and thou shalt bear the iniquity of the house of Yahuwdah forty days: I have appointed thee each day for a year.”

A Literal Ten Days Or A Prophetic Ten Days?

As foreigners, the saints will be viewed with suspicion of being potential terrorist, spies, and collaborators in times of civil unrest and war and as a preemptive measure, some foreigners will be placed in prison camps. It has happened before. The Scriptures revealed to the seven congregations in the Book of Revelation that some of the saints will be placed in prison by the devil for ten days, but “if” this period of time has a prophetic application and I emphasize the word “if” for this last days generation with a day for a year principle in consideration, this means that some of the saints will be placed in prison for ten years. The captivity of Yahsharahal will end in A.D. 2028 minus 10 years will take us backwards in time to the year A.D. 2018 when a type of internment will began for the saints. Otherwise, it could be a literal ten days. Watch for both applications.

Freedom To Exercise Religion
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freedom_of_religion_in_the_United_States

“In the United States, the religious civil liberties are guaranteed by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

There are even international laws regarding religious freedom.

International Religious Freedom Act Of 1998
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Religious_Freedom_Act_of_1998

“The International Religious Freedom Act of 1998 (Public Law 105–292, as amended by Public Law 106–55, Public Law 106–113, Public Law 107–228, Public Law 108–332, and Public Law 108–458)[1] was passed to promote religious freedom as a foreign policy of the United States, and to advocate on the behalf of the individuals viewed as persecuted in foreign countries on the account of religion. The Act was signed into law by President Bill Clinton on October 27, 1998.[2] Three cooperative entities have been maintained by this act to monitor religious persecution.

1. An Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom within the Department of State,

2. A bipartisan United States Commission on International Religious Freedom, and

3. A Special Adviser on International Religious Freedom within the National Security Council.[2]”

The Mark Number And Name
Revelation 13:11-12; 15-17

11 “And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. 12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.”

15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. 16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads; 17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.”

Religious Exemption

Despite the current religious freedoms and laws of concern currently enacted and on the books, the laws will be ignored and the people of Yahuwah will be persecuted. There will come a time when the saints will have to request for an exemption from some of the practices required by the laws of The Beast. There will come a time when some of the man-made laws will be in conflict with the laws of Yahuwah and it will be a matter of eternal life or eternal death that the saints reject some of the man-made laws in obedience to Yahuwah. It is prophesied in The Scriptures that the saints will have to say “no” to receiving the mark, number, and name of The Beast and “no” to bowing down to the image of The Beast. By doing so, the saints will not be able to buy and sell and some of the saints will be killed for their religious objection.

The Symbolism Of The Beast

The Beast consist of a league of nations that use symbolism to represent their respective countries. This symbolism comes in the form of flags, colors, animals, anthems, pledges, flowers, and logo designs. The people of Yahuwah need to examine themselves for any traces of pride in this symbolism in their own lives left over from before they became citizens of the house of Yahuwah because this is considered idolatry.

We Must Examine The Groups We Associate With

We must examine the groups we associate with because some groups consider themselves patriots and encourage its members to wear the symbolism of The Beast on their clothing and other personal possessions. The people of Yahuwah must avoid displaying and advertising the symbolism of The Beast. I belong to a secular group whose mission is to expose certain aspects of The Beast Kingdom now in operation. It is not a closed group, therefore, anyone can attend its meetings. One newcomer to the group suggested that as a group we contribute money to a fund to raise enough money to “give” to a public official to “encourage” him or her to take interest in our cause. What the newcomer was suggesting was bordering on bribery if not bribery. Another member of the group suggested that we prepare ourselves to be arrested and go and “camp out” in sleeping bags on the doorsteps of some government building and then perhaps they would pay attention to our cause. Both of these methods are illegal and fortunately the moderator of the group corrected both of these individuals. We must be careful about the groups we associate with because some of the people in these groups have been deliberately placed in the group to encourage and provoke members to participate in illegal activity.

All Things Holy And New

The people of Yahuwah must learn to view themselves as pilgrims and foreigners in the countries they currently reside in and get rid of the symbolism of The Beast from out of their lives. The people of Yahuwah are waiting for their citizenship with a Holy King, holy people, and a Holy Land from Yahuwah where there will be true rest, peace, and safety.

Head Coverings When You Pray Or Prophesy [YAHUWAH]

The Spiritual Context Of Head Coverings
1 Corinthians 11:3

3 “But I would have you know that the head of every man is Mashyach, and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Mashyach is Yahuwah.”

The spiritual context of the head covering message of this verse is that everyone has a head except Yahuwah. What this verse is not saying is that every man is the head of every woman. When Yahuwah created Adam and Chuwah (Eve), Yahuwah established Adam as the head over his own wife, Chuwah (Eve) only. Yahuwah did not give Adam authority as head over any other man’s wife. The spiritual context of “the head of the woman is the man” is the relationship between a husband and his wife.

The Greek Words “Man” And “Woman”

G435 aner {an’-ayr} a primary word cf 444; TDNT – 1:360,59; n m AV – man 156, husband 50, sir 6, fellow 1, not tr 2; 215 1) with reference to sex 1a) of a male 1b) of a husband 1c) of a betrothed or future husband 2) with reference to age, and to distinguish an adult man from a boy 3) any male 4) used generically of a group of both men and women

G1135 gune {goo-nay’} probably from the base of 1096; TDNT – 1:776,134; n f AV – women 129, wife 92; 221 1) a woman of any age, whether a virgin, or married, or a widow 2) a wife 2a) of a betrothed woman

The Greek words aner (man) and gune (woman) could have been translated husband and wife. The context of “the head of the woman is man” indicates husband and wife is intended in verse three.

Adam Created First
1 Timothy 2:12-14

12 “But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. 13 For Adam was first formed, then Chuwah (Eve). 14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.

First, Yahuwah demonstrated that Adam was the head and had authority over his wife by creating Adam first. Adam was the head “before” Chuwah(Eve) sinned. Secondly, the fact that she sinned further cemented the point that she needed a head. Chuwah (Eve) usurped the authority of her husband by making a decision for the family that turned out to be disastrous for the family and her future children. She did not seek the instruction of her husband.

Adam And Chuwah (Eve) Were Naked
Genesis 2:22-25

22 “And the rib, which Yahuwah Alahayam had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. 23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. 24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. 25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.”

Adam and Chuwah (Eve) were naked. They had no physical covering at all of any kind. Adam was given authority over Chuwah (Eve) and Chuwah (Eve) was not required to wear a physical head covering to symbolize Adam’s authority over her.

The Husband’s Authority Became A Curse
Genesis 3:16

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.”

The rule of the husband is mentioned as part of the curse because his authority over the wife then became a curse. Initially, the authority of the husband was a blessing to the wife, but after Chuwah (Eve) sinned and her husband Adam sinned with her, the husband now had the potential to abuse his authority over the wife and not follow the commandments of Yahuwah in his treatment of his wife. The husband could now rule over her according to his own will. This is a curse. When those who are married put themselves under the authority of Yahuwah and Yahuwshwah, they can have this curse removed from out of their lives by keeping the commandments of Yahuwah.

Domestic Violence
Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domestic_violence

“Domestic violence, also known as domestic abuse, spousal abuse, battering, family violence, and intimate partner violence (IPV), is defined as a pattern of abusive behaviors by one partner against another in an intimate relationship such as marriage, dating, family, or cohabitation.[1] Domestic violence, so defined, has many forms, including physical aggression or assault (hitting, kicking, biting, shoving, restraining, slapping, throwing objects), or threats thereof; sexual abuse; emotional abuse; controlling or domineering; intimidation; stalking; passive/covert abuse (e.g., neglect); and economic deprivation.[1][2] Alcohol consumption[3] and mental illness[4] can be co-morbid with abuse, and present additional challenges in eliminating domestic violence. Awareness, perception, definition and documentation of domestic violence differs widely from country to country, and from era to era.”

“Domestic violence and abuse is not limited to obvious physical violence. Domestic violence can also mean endangerment, criminal coercion, kidnapping, unlawful imprisonment, trespassing, harassment, and stalking.[5]”

Domestic Violence Statistics

“According to a report by the United States Department of Justice, a survey of 16,000 Americans showed 22.1% of women and 7.4% of men reported being physically assaulted by a current or former spouse, cohabiting partner, boyfriend or girlfriend, or date in their lifetime.[118] A 2010 survey of over 21,000 residents of England and Wales by the UK Home Office showed that 7% of women and 3% of men were victims of domestic abuse in the last year.[119] A study in the United States found that women were 13 times more likely than men to seek medical attention due to injuries related to spousal abuse.[120]”

“Women are more likely than men to be murdered by an intimate partner. Of those killed by an intimate partner about three quarters are female and about a quarter are male. In 1999 in the United States 1,218 women and 424 men were killed by an intimate partner,[121] and 1181 females and 329 males were killed by their intimate partners in 2005.[122][123] In England and Wales about 100 women are killed by partners or former partners each year while 21 men were killed in 2010.[124] In 2008, in France, 156 women and 27 men were killed by their intimate partner.[125]”

The Two Head Covering Questions

There are two questions being addressed in 1 Corinthians 11:1-16 as follows:

1. Should a wife wear a physical head covering when she prays or prophesies?

2. Should a husband wear a physical head covering when he prays or prophesies?

Shauwl (Paul) establishes the context of the question by mentioning the man as head of the woman in verse three because every man is not the head of every woman. The husband is the head of his wife.

The Context: Congregation Meeting
1 Corinthians 11:17-18

17 “Now in this that I declare unto you I praise you not, that ye come together not for the better, but for the worse. 18 For first of all, when ye come together in the congregation, I hear that there be divisions among you; and I partly believe it.”

The two questions address the issue of what a husband and wife should do in the congregation meeting only when he or she pray or prophesy. It does not address the issue of what the husband or wife should do concerning head coverings outside the congregation meeting.

Who Is Asking The Questions?
1 Corinthians 12:1-2

1 “Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant. 2 Ye know that ye were Gentiles, carried away unto these dumb idols, even as ye were led.”

Shauwl (Paul) identifies the Corinthian congregation as “ye were Gentiles.” They use to be Gentiles, but now they were Yahsharahal. The Corinthian congregation was composed predominantly of converted Gentiles. Questions about wearing head coverings when one prays or prophesies are not questions that a Yahsharahalite husband and wife in the first century would ask because the Yahsharahalites were a nation who had had laws, solemn congregation meetings, prayer, prophets, and prophetesses as part of their worship for years. Bloodline Yahsharahal knew the answer to the questions.

The Head Coverings Of The Corinthian Gentiles

To understand the issues, we must get a better understanding by taking a deeper look at the background of the Corinthian Gentiles. We must try to gain an understanding of the relationship between husband and wife, women and their role in religious ceremony and rituals, and what type of clothing the Corinthian Gentiles were wearing in the first century that would include a physical head covering, and what the head coverings meant to them.

What Gentile Head Covering?: The Toga And Stola
Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toga
Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stola

“The toga, a distinctive garment of Ancient Rome, was a cloth of perhaps 20 ft (6 m) in length which was wrapped around the body and was generally worn over a tunic. The toga was made of wool,[1] and the tunic under it often was made of linen. After the 2nd century BC, the toga was a garment worn exclusively by men, and only Roman citizens were allowed to wear the toga. After this time, women were expected to wear the stola.”

“The stola was the traditional garment of Roman women, corresponding to the toga, or the pallium, that was worn by men.”

“Originally, women wore togas as well, but after the 2nd century BCE, the toga was worn exclusively by men, and women were expected to wear the stola. At that point in time, it was considered disgraceful for a woman to wear a toga; wearing the male garment was associated with prostitution and adultery.[1][2]”

“Probably the most noted image of the stola resides on the fact that it is the garment that the Statue of Liberty in New York City wears.”

The Toga

“Probably the most significant item in the ancient Roman wardrobe was the toga, a one-piece woolen garment that draped loosely around the shoulders and down the body. Togas could be wrapped in different ways, and they became larger and more voluminous over the centuries. Some innovations were purely fashionable. Because it was not easy to wear a toga without tripping over it or trailing drapery, some variations in wrapping served a practical function. Other styles were required, for instance, for covering the head during ceremonies.”

The Palla Worn To Cover The Head
Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clothing_in_ancient_Rome
Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palla_%28garment%29

“Palla is a traditional ancient Roman mantle worn by women, fastened by brooches. It was similar to the pallium that a man would wear. The shape was rectangular instead of semi-circular as with the traditional toga. The Palla was similar to a shawl that a woman of today would wear. The palla would come in many colors some including blues, greens, and yellows.”

“The palla is a single piece of material draped over the shoulders and around the body or over the head as well. The palla is worn over a stola, which is a floor-length dress with long sleeves (or sometimes, straps) that is worn over a tunic.”

Official clothing
“The dress code of the day was complex and had to reflect one’s position accurately in the social order, one’s gender, and one’s language.”

Vestal Virgin Priestesses
Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vestal_Virgin

“In ancient Roman religion, the Vestals or Vestal Virgins (Vestales, singular Vestalis), were priestesses of Vesta, goddess of the hearth. The College of the Vestals and its well-being was regarded as fundamental to the continuance and security of Rome. Hence the cultivation of the sacred fire that was not allowed to go out. The Vestals were freed of the usual social obligations to marry and bear children, and took a vow of chastity in order to devote themselves to the study and correct observance of state rituals that were off-limits to the male colleges of priests.[1]”

“Their tasks included the maintenance of the fire sacred to Vesta, the goddess of the hearth and home, collecting water from a sacred spring, preparation of food used in rituals and caring for sacred objects in the temple’s sanctuary.[17] By maintaining Vesta’s sacred fire, from which anyone could receive fire for household use, they functioned as “surrogate housekeepers”, in a religious sense, for all of Rome. Their sacred fire was treated, in Imperial times, as the emperor’s household fire.”

“The Vestals were put in charge of keeping safe the wills and testaments of various people such as Caesar and Mark Antony. In addition, the Vestals also guarded some sacred objects, including the Palladium, and made a special kind of flour called mola salsa which was sprinkled on all public offerings to a god.”

Vestal Clothing
Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vestal_Virgin

“The main articles of their clothing consisted of an infula, a suffibulum and a palla. The infula was a fillet, which was worn by priests and other religious figures in Rome. A vestal’s infula was white and made from wool. The suffibulum was the white woolen veil which was worn during rituals and sacrifices. Usually found underneath were red and white woolen ribbons, symbolizing the Vestal’s commitment to keeping the fire of Vesta and to her vow of purity, respectively. The palla was the long, simple shawl, a typical article of clothing for Roman women. The palla, and its pin, were draped over the left shoulder.”

The Authority And Power Of The Vestals

“The dignities accorded to the Vestals were significant.

in an era when religion was rich in pageantry, the presence of the College of Vestal Virgins was required in numerous public ceremonies and wherever they went, they were transported in a carpentum, a covered two-wheeled carriage, preceded by a lictor, and had the right-of-way;

at public games and performances they had a reserved place of honor;

unlike most Roman women, they were not subject to the patria potestas and so were free to own property, make a will, and vote;

they gave evidence without the customary oath, their word being trusted without question;

they were, on account of their incorruptible character, entrusted with important wills and state documents, like public treaties;

their person was sacrosanct: death was the penalty for injuring their person and their escorts protected anyone from assault;

they could free condemned prisoners and slaves by touching them – if a person who was sentenced to death saw a Vestal on his way to the execution, he was automatically pardoned.

they participated in throwing the ritual straw figures called Argei into the Tiber on May 15.[18][19]”

The Father of The Family Served As Priest Of The Family
Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paterfamilias

“The pater familias (plural patres familias) was the head of a Roman family. The term is Latin for “father of the family” or the “owner of the family estate”. The form is irregular and archaic in Latin, preserving the old genitive ending in -as (see Latin declension). The pater familias was always a Roman citizen.”

“The domestic responsibilities of the pater familias included his priestly duties (sacra familiae) to his “household gods” (the lares and penates) and the ancestral gods of his own gens.[5] The latter were represented by the di parentes as ancestral shades of the departed, and by the genius cult. Genius has been interpreted as the essential, heritable spirit (or divine essence, or soul) and generative power that suffused the gens and each of its members. As the singular, lawful head of a family derived from a gens, the pater familias embodied and expressed its genius through his pious fulfillment of ancestral obligations. The pater familias was therefore owed a reciprocal duty of genius cult by his entire familia. He in his turn conferred genius and the duty of sacra familiae to his children—whether by blood or by adoption.[6]”

Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Religion_in_ancient_Rome

“All sacrifices and offerings required an accompanying prayer to be effective. Pliny the Elder declared that “a sacrifice without prayer is thought to be useless and not a proper consultation of the gods.”[34] Prayer by itself, however, had independent power. The spoken word was thus the single most potent religious action, and knowledge of the correct verbal formulas the key to efficacy.[35] Accurate naming was vital for tapping into the desired powers of the deity invoked, hence the proliferation of cult epithets among Roman deities.[36] Public prayers were offered loudly and clearly by a priest on behalf of the community. Public religious ritual had to be enacted by specialists and professionals faultlessly; a mistake might require that the action, or even the entire festival, be repeated from the start.[37] The historian Livy reports an occasion when the presiding magistrate at the Latin festival forgot to include the “Roman people” among the list of beneficiaries in his prayer; the festival had to be started over.[38] Even private prayer by an individual was formulaic, a recitation rather than a personal expression, though selected by the individual for a particular purpose or occasion.[39]”

The Nativity Scene

The nativity scene presented to us with Mary wearing a stola-like garment and palla covering on her head with the baby Jesus is from a Roman perspective and does not necessarily represent how all the wives of Yahsharahal or the congregations of Yahuwah dressed in ancient times.

How did the Abary Yahsharahalite people dress?

They Dressed Like Egyptians
Exodus 12:35-36

35 “And the children of Yahsharahal did according to the word of Mashah (Moses); and they borrowed of the Egyptians jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and raiment: 36 And Yahuwah gave the people favour in the sight of the Egyptians, so that they lent unto them such things as they required. And they spoiled the Egyptians.”

In our modern times, we can look at the historical paintings and carvings of the Egyptians and how the Egyptians dressed, if we want to know how the Yahsharahalite people dressed. They borrowed raiment (clothes) from the Egyptians. The clothes were for the Yahsharahalites to wear because they had been reduced to slaves and they were poor and needed the clothes. The Yahsharahlites wore Egyptian accessories of gold and silver. Yahuwah approved of the raiment and jewelry of the Egyptians for His people to wear as long as it covered their nakedness.

Yuwsaph (Joseph) And Mashah (Moses) Dressed Like Egyptians
Genesis 41:41-42; Exodus 2:9-10

41 “And Pharaah (Pharaoh) said unto Yuwsaph, See, I have set thee over all the land of Egypt. 42 And Pharaah took off his ring from his hand, and put it upon Yuwsaph’s hand, and arrayed him in vestures of fine linen, and put a gold chain about his neck.;”

9 “And Pharaah’s daughter said unto her, Take this child away, and nurse it for me, and I will give thee thy wages, And the woman took the child, and nursed it. 10 And the child grew, and she brought him unto Pharaah’s daughter, and he became her son. And she called his name Mashah: and she said, Because I drew him out of the water.”

Yuwsaph wore Egyptian vestures (clothes). Mashah was raised, educated, and dressed in the house of Pharaah the same as other Egyptian children.

They Dressed Like Babylonians Before Egypt
Genesis 11:28, 31

28 “And Haran died before his father Terah in the land of his nativity, in Ur of the Chaldees.”

31 “And Terah took Abaram his son, and Luwt (Lot) the son of Haran his son’s son, and Sharay his daughter in law, his son Abaram’s wife; and they went forth with them from Ur of the Chaldees, to go into the land of Canaan; and they came unto Haran, and dwelt there.”

Abaraham was a Chaldean (Kashady/Babylonian) from the land of Ur. We can look at the historical carvings of the Chaldeans, if we want to know how the Abary Yahsharahalite people dressed before they went to sojourn in Egypt.

The Clothes Of King Abimelech
Yashar (Jasher) 23:1-2; 14-15

1 “At that time the word of Yahuwah came to Abaraham, and he said unto him, Abaraham, and he said, Here I am. 2 And he said to him, Take now thy son, thine only son whom thou lovest, even Yahtsachaq (Isaac), and go to the land of Muwryah (Moriah), and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which shall be shown to thee, for there wilt thou see a cloud and the glory of Yahuwah.”

14 “And in the morning Sharah (Sarah) selected a very fine and beautiful garment from those garments which she had in the house, that Abimelech had given to her. 15 And she dressed Yahtsachaq (Isaac) her son therewith, and she put a turban upon his head, and she enclosed a precious stone in the top of the turban, and she gave them provision for the road, and they went forth, and Yahtsachaq went with his father Abaraham, and some of their servants accompanied them to see them off the road.”

After Abaraham and Sharah went through the wife-sister incident with King Abimelech, the Book of Yashar reveals that Abimelech gave Sharah clothes as part of his parting gifts to her. These gifts included clothes and a turban which Sharah gave to Yahtsachaq (Isaac) to wear around the time he was to be sacrificed.

Mistaken For An Egyptian
Acts 21:37-39

37 “And as Shauwl (Paul) was to be led into the castle, he said unto the chief captain, May I speak unto thee? Who said, Canst thou speak Greek? 38 Art not thou that Egyptian, which before these days madest an uproar, and leddest out into the wilderness four thousand men that were murderers?” 39 But Shauwl said, I am a man which am a Yahuwdy of Tarsus, a city in Cilicia, a citizen of no mean city: and, I beseech thee, suffer me to speak unto the people.”

In the first century A.D., there were many black races in the area of Yahruwshalaam. However, this guard mistaken Shauwl a Yahuwdy Yahsharahalite for and Egyptian. It is possible that even in the first century the Yahsharahalites still dressed similar to the Egyptians and it wasn’t Shauwl’s black race only that contributed to his being mistaken for an Egyptian.

Shauwl’s (Paul’s) Controversial Statements To The Corinthian Gentile Congregation
1 Corinthians 11:4-5

4 “Every man [husband] praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonoureth his head. 5 But every woman [wife] that pray or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven. 6 For if the woman [wife] be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman [wife] to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered.

These verses “are” speaking about a physical covering.

The Gentile Wives Were Given Power

It is the husband who served as pater familia (priest) of the family, but Yahuwah gave the Corinthian Gentile wives power to pray and prophesy through the Holy Spirit. It was a power the Corinthian Gentile husbands were not accustomed to their wives having and they had questions about if should their wives cover their heads with a physical covering while displaying this power. The Vestal Virgins who had power wore pallas and veils when they exercised their power and participated in religious service.

The Corinthian Gentile husbands and wives did not wear physical head coverings all the time. The context is when praying or prophesying only.

Shauwl is speaking to a predominantly Gentile congregation whose practice was for both the men and women to use head coverings to cover their heads. The men used the toga and the women used the palla. Shauwl used this practice to symbolize and demonstrate the spiritual relationship between the husband and the wife. The husband should not cover his head when he prays or prophesies and the wife should have a cover on her head when she prays or prophesies, but in a later verse, Shauwl moves from these symbolic physical head coverings to the natural coverings that Yahuwah gave to “all” men and to “all” women.

Judge In Yourselves
1 Corinthians 11:13-15

13 “Judge in yourselves is it comely that a woman [wife] pray unto Yahuwah uncovered? 14 Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man [husband] have long hair, it is a shame unto him? 15 But if a woman [wife] have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering.”

The Natural Covering: The Hair

The answer is “no” a wife does not have to pray or prophesy with her head covered with a second physical head covering because she has been given the natural covering of her hair. The natural covering of the hair can be used to demonstrate the same spiritual relationship as the physical head coverings (toga and palla) of the Corinthian Gentiles that “the husband is the head of the wife.” Shauwl said that it is a shame for a husband to have long hair (his short hair symbolizes he is the head), but it is a glory to a wife to have long hair (her long hair symbolizes she has a head). Her hair is her natural covering. The second part of 1 Corinthians 11:14 (“her hair is given her for a covering”) points to the hair in general being given to the wife and all women for a covering. The wife or women do not have to have or grow long hair (because some women have trouble growing long hair), but “if” she has long hair it is a glory to her. The natural covering of the hair can be used to distinguish between husband and wife, male and female, and masculine and feminine.

The Physical Head Coverings Was A Custom
1 Corinthians 11:16

16 “But if any man seem to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the congregations of Yahuwah.”

The Greek word sunetheian (G4914) means custom).

A custom is something that is not binding under the laws of Yahuwah. Gentile husbands and wives wearing or not wearing a physical head covering when they participate in religious services was a Corinthian Gentile custom and issue. The people of Yahuwah are not bound by law to obeserve the custom of the Corinthian Gentiles.

Another Custom
Yohn (John) 18:39-40

39 “But ye have a custom, that I should release unto you one at the passover: will ye therefore that I release unto you the King of the Yahuwdy?” 40 Then cried they all again, saying, Not this man, but Barabbas. Now Barabbas was a robber.”

A form of the same Greek word “sunetheian” is use in this verse for the word “custom” as in 1 Corinthians 11:16. It is not written in the law of Yahuwah that Yahsharahal should have a prisoner released by a leader at the Passover. This custom was a Gentile custom granted to Yahsharahal by Pilate. The people of Yahuwah are not bound by the law of Yahuwah to observe this custom.

1 Corinthians 11:16 “But if any man seem to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the congregations of Yahuwah.”

The practice of having the wife wear a physical head covering when she participates in religious services was a Corinthian Gentile custom. The “we” in this verse refers to Shauwl and bloodline Yahsharahal who had no such custom. The “neither the congregations of Yahuwah” refers to the rest of the congregations which were composed of Gentiles or a mixture of Gentiles with bloodline Yahsharahal and they had no such custom after entering the congregation of Yahuwah. This issue was unique to the Corinthians. The wife does not have to wear a physical head covering when she prays or prophesies to demonstrate that her husband is her head. Her hair is given to her for a covering to distinguish herself as a wife and female.

The Head Covering Of Husbands And Men

The husbands are not bound by the law of Yahuwah to keep the custom of the Corinthian Gentiles either. The husbands and men in general can wear a physical head covering on their head when they pray or prophesy, but Shauwl makes it clear that long hair on a man is a shame. Just like the hair of the wives and women in general demonstrate their femininity, the hair of the husbands and men in general demonstrate their masculinity in the congregation of Yahuwah.

The Head Covering Of Aharuwn (Aaron)
Exodus 28:36-38; 29:6-7

36 “And thou shalt make a plate of pure gold, and grave upon it, like the engravings of a signet, HOLINESS TO YAHUWAH. 37 And thou shalt put it on a blue lace, that it may be upon the mitre; upon the forefront of the mitre it shall be. 38 And it shall be upon Aharuwn’s forehead, that Aharuwn my bear the iniquity of the holy things, which the children of Yahsharahal shall hallow in all their holy gifts; and it shall be always upon his forehead, that they may be accepted before Yahuwah.”

6 “And thou shalt put the mitre upon his head, and put the holy crown upon the mitre. 7 Then shalt thou take the anointing oil, and pour it upon his head, and anoint him.”

Yahuwah commanded Yahsharahal to make a head covering for Aharuwn to wear when he ministered in the holy place.

The Head Covering Of The Sons Of Aharuwn
Exodus 28:40-41

40 “And for Aharuwn’s sons thou shalt make coats, and thou shalt make for them girdles, and bonnets shalt thou make for them, for glory and for beauty. 41 And thou shalt put them upon Aharuwn thy brother, and his sons with him; and shalt anoint them, and consecrate them, and sanctify them, that they may minister unto me in the priest’s office.”

Aharuwn had a head covering (the mitre and engraved gold plate) and his sons had head coverings (the bonnets) which Yahuwah stated they were for their glory and beauty. A mitre is a turban on which they set the gold plate. These special head coverings distinguished them as the ministers of Yahuwah. Head coverings can be used today to distinguish authority and to designate position in the congregation so that when we see the design or color of the head covering we know we are in the presence of a pastor, bishop, deacon, and other helps. The husbands and men in general in the congregation of Yahuwah can pray and prophesy with head coverings in the congregation meeting.

Shauwl On The Hair Of The Women
1 Timothy 2:9-10

9 “In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shame-facedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; 10 But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works.”

Shauwl would not have made this comment about “broided” hair if the women in the congregation did not expose their hair for others to see at some time during the congregation meeting. Some believe that women in general should not ever expose their hair in a congregation meeting or in public, but this is not a scriptural teaching for the people of Yahwuah. Shauwl is not saying that women should not braid their hair, wear jewelry, or nice clothes, he is saying that the women of Yahuwah should not let the outer appearance (physical beauty) be the whole focus and extent of their beauty, but they should adorn themselves with godliness (spiritual beauty).

The Beauty Of Sharay (Sarai)
Yashar (Jasher) 15:3-5

3 “And Abaram and Sharay were walking at the border of the brook Mitzraim, and Abaram beheld his wife Sharay that she was very beautiful. 4 And Abaram said to his wife Sharay, Since Alahayam has created thee with such a beautiful countenance, I am afraid of the Egyptians lest they should slay me and take thee away, for the fear of Alahayam is not in these places. 5 Surely then thou shalt do this, Say thou art my sister to all that may ask thee, in order that it may be well with me, and that we may live and not be put to death.”

7 “And yet with all these orders Abaram did not put confidence in them, but he took Sharay and placed her in a chest and concealed it amongst their vessels, for Abaram was greatly concerned about Sharay on account of the wickedness of the Egyptians.”

The Egyptians Forced The Chest Open
Yashar (Jasher) 15:9-10, 12-13

9 “And Abaram with the people that were with him came to Egypt, and when they came they brought the chest in which Sharay was concealed and the Egyptians saw the chest. 10 And the king’s servants approached Abaram, saying, What hast thou here in this chest which we have not seen? Now open thou the chest and give tithe to the king of all that it contains.”

12 “Abaram said, All that you desire I will give, but you must not open the chest. 13 And the king’s officers pressed Abaram, and they reached the chest and opened it with force, and they saw, and behold a beautiful woman was in the chest.”

The Egyptians “Saw” The Beauty Of Sharay
Yashar (Jasher) 15:14-15

14 “And when the officers of the king beheld Sharay they were struck with admiration at her beauty, and all the princes and servants of Pharaah (Pharaoh) assembled to see Sharay, for she was very beautiful. And the king’s officers ran and told Pharaah all that they had seen, and they praised Sharay to the king; and Pharaah ordered her to be brought, and the woman came before the king. 15 And Pharaah beheld Sharay and she pleased him exceedingly, and he was struck with her beauty, and the king rejoiced greatly on her account, and made presents to those who brought him the tidings concerning her.”

The Beauty Of Sharay

Notice that Abaraham did not tell his wife Sharay to put a head covering on or a veil to hide her beauty, although he had the authority as her head to do so, but this idea did not come to his mind. He hid Sharah in a chest. The beauty of Sharay was exposed for all to see when they opened the chest. The Abary women were not required to wear head coverings or veils.

The Head Covering Of Rabakah (Rebekah)
Genesis 24:64-65

64 “And Rabakah lifted up her eyes, and when she saw Yahtsachaq (Isaac), she lighted off the camel. 65 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 veil, and covered herself.”

Rabakah put a head covering of a veil over her head only when she saw her groom. Otherwise, the men servants in the entourage sent by Abaraham accompanying her had seen her beauty before she covered herself. This was a custom and is not written in the law of Yahuwah. We can see a similar custom today in the belief that the groom should not see the bride on the day of the wedding until they reach the altar and that the bride should cover herself with a veil.

The Beauty Of Rabakah (Rebecca)
Yashar (Jasher) 28:2-4

2 “And Yahuwah appeared that night to Yahtsachaq (Isaac) and he said to him, Do not go down to Egypt but rise and go to Gerar, to Abimelech king of the Philistines, and remain there till the famine shall cease. 3 And Yahtsachaq rose up and went to Gerar, as Yahuwah commanded him, and he remained there a full year. 4 And when Yahtsachaq came to Gerar, the people of the land saw that Rebecca his wife was of a beautiful appearance, and the people of Gerar asked Yahtsachaq concerning his wife, and he said, She is my sister, for he was afraid to say she was his wife lest the people of the land should slay him on account of her.”

The beauty of Rabakah was exposed for all the Philistines to see.

Reasons To Wear Physical Head Coverings

The Abary Yahsharahalite women had reasons to wear physical head coverings, just as they have reasons in our modern times, but praying and prophesying were not one of them.

The Prophecy Concerning The Daughters Of Zion
Yashayah (Isaiah) 3:16-26

16 “Moreover Yahuwah saith, Because the daughters of Zion are haughty, and walk with stretched forth necks and wanton eyes, walking and mincing as they go, and making a tinkling with their feet: 17 Therefore the Master will smite with a scab the crown of the head of the daughters of Zion, and Yahuwah will discover their secret parts. 18 In that day the Master will take away the bravery of their tinkling ornaments about their feet, and their cauls, and their round tires like the moon, 19 The chains, and the bracelets, and the mufflers, 20 The bonnets, and the ornaments of the legs, and the headbands, and the tablets, and the earrings, 21 The rings, and nose jewels, 22 The changeable suits of apparel, and the mantles, and the wimples, and the crisping pins, 23 The glasses, and the fine linen, and the hoods, and the vails.” 24 And it shall come to pass, that instead of sweet smell there shall be stink; and instead of a girdle a rent; and instead of well set hair baldness; and instead of a stomacher a girding of sackcloth; and burning instead of beauty. 25 Thy men shall fall by the sword, and thy mighty in the war. 26 And her gates shall lament and mourn; and she being desolate shall sit upon the ground.

Let it be known to all the daughters of Yahuwah that Yahuwah says that even though some of the daughters of Zion wear the physical head coverings of well set hair, cauls, mufflers, headbands, bonnets, hoods, and veils, they are not spiritually right with Yahuwah. Therefore, Yahuwah will take all the physical head coverings away from the daughters of Zion. The physical head coverings will not get the daughters of Zion into the Kingdom of Yahuwah. Yahuwah exposes that some of the daughters of Zion who are wearing the physical head coverings are haughty and walk with stretched forth necks (disdainfully proud-to treat as beneath one’s notice or dignity), walking and mincing as they go, (twisting their behinds), making a tinkling with their feet (want to be seen and noticed) and have wanton eyes (lustful and sensual eyes). The head coverings are not doing anything spiritually for some of the daughters of Zion.

The Nazarite
Numbers 6:2, 5

2 “Speak unto the children of Yahsharahal, and say unto them, When either man or woman shall separate themselves to vow a vow of a Nazarite, to separate themselves unto Yahuwah:”

5 “All the days of the vow of his separation there shall no razor come upon his head: until the days be fulfilled, in the which he separateth himself unto Yahuwah, he shall be holy, and shall let the locks of the hair of his head grow.”

The fact that Yahuwah commanded the Nazarite to not put a razor upon his or her head indicates that the children of Yahsharahal did use the razor on their head, but when they were under the vow of the Nazarite, they were forbidden to use the razor on their head. The people of Yahuwah can shave, cut, or trim the hair on their head, but within the boundaries of the instruction of The Scriptures.

There Were Both Male And Female Nazarites Numbers 6:18

18 “And the Nazarite shall shave the head of his separation at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and shall take the hair of the head of his separation, and put it in the fire which is under the sacrifice of the peace offering.”

Shauwl (Paul) said that it is a shame for a man to have long hair and it is a shame for a woman to be shorn.

The male and female Nazarite humbled themselves in shame and holiness and service to Yahuwah. The male Nazarite demonstrated his shame when he let his hair grow long during the vow. The female Nazarite demonstrated her shame when she had to have the hair on her head shorn at the completion of her vow.

Shauwl Made A Nazarite Vow
Acts 18:18

18 “And Shauwl (Paul) after this tarried there yet a good while, and then took his leave of the brethren, and sailed thence into Syria, and with him Priscilla and Aquila; having shorn his head in Cenchrea: for he had a vow.”

As long as the apostles had the temple available to them and the Levite priests available to them, they continued in the holy days, feast days, Shabats, and the law given to Yahsharahal by Yahuwah through Mashah (Moses), but the temple has been destroyed which means it is impossible for a person to make the vow of a Nazarite and offer the appropriate sacrifices through a Levitical priest. It is a shame for a man to have long hair and it is a shame for a woman to be shorn.

My Confession

I have a personal preference in this custom of physical head coverings of my own. I feel that it would be a wonderful thing if all the wives wore a physical head covering at the congregation meeting. That way, if a man or woman is single and looking for a spouse, the single man would immediately know when he sees the physical head covering, that he is looking at a married woman because all married women do not attend congregation meetings with their husbands. The head covering would be a sign that she is married. The single man would know not to inquire about that woman because she is married already. The uncovered head of the single “damsels” would let the single man know that she is available for marriage. Wouldn’t this just make the dating scene a little more simple? (smile)

A Word To The Husbands And Wives

The husband is the head of the wife. Therefore, the husband has the authority to require his wife to wear a physical head covering. The custom of head covering is not a harmful practice in itself, but remember that if you choose to have your wife to wear a physical head covering, it is strictly your personal preference for your wife and is not written in the laws of the Yahuwah.

A Word To All The People Of Yahuwah

To all the people of Yahuwah, especially those among the people of Yahuwah living in countries in which head coverings and veils are written in the laws of man, although you now know that physical head coverings are not required for the women of Yahuwah, continue to obey the laws of the country you live in concerning physical head coverings because physical head covering laws are not in conflict with the laws of Yahuwah if the matter concerns either wearing one or not wearing one. Furthermore, if any of the women of Yahuwah find themselves visiting a country in which head coverings and veils are required and enforced by law, obey the laws of that country (do not attempt to so-call “liberate” the women under physical head covering laws in these countries). Likewise, if the country you live in or visit request that you remove the head covering or veil, there is no law from Yahuwah regarding why you should not remove it to obey the laws of that country. Don’t get yourself put in prison or killed over a piece of cloth that is not even written in the law of Yahuwah.

The New Head Covering Of Yahuwah
Romans 3:21-26

21 But now the righteousness of Yahuwah without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; 22 Even the righteousness of Yahuwah which is by faith of Yahuwshuwah unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: 23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of Yahuwah; 24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Mashyach Yahuwshuwah: 25 Whom Yahuwah hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of Yahuwah; 26 To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Yahuwshuwah.

Physical Head Coverings In Religious Services Was A Custom Of The Corinthian Gentiles

The people of Yahuwah are not bound by any law from Yahuwah to keep the custom of the Corinthian Gentiles. The single women in the congregation of Yahuwah can decide for themselves, if they prefer to wear or not to wear a physical head covering when they pray, prophesy, at all times during the congregation meeting, or at all times when they go out in public because the head covering was a custom of the Corinthian Gentiles. Wearing or not wearing a physical head covering does not determine if a man or woman will enter the Kingdom of Yahuwah, but the covering of the blood of Yahuwshuwah for sin does.
