Remove the Helmet; Put on the Veil

Bow the Neck to the King: Wear the Veil to Honour His House


The Apostle Paul 1n Corinthians 11 verse 1 says,

Vs 1: “Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ
,”

So we can see the Apostle Paul already establishing a frame, or a hierarchy (if you will), of reciprocation. This is what he's going to be explaining to the Corinthians here, for the purpose of the state of the conscience.

When he talks about the state of the conscience, he talks about that in vs 29 of the previous chapter:

“Conscience, I say...” So he's talking about the conscience, and then in verse 30 he talks about that grace, which he received, and then he talks about from the grace he received, to the word in verse 32, give none offence. Keep these things in mind: the conscience, the grace, to giving none offence. And then in verse 33 he talks about, “Even as I please all men”.

True Apostles Establish a Relational Reciprocation Through Propitiation

So we can see that the Apostle Paul is already establishing a relational reciprocation by submission to the King, because we're not seeking our own. If we seek our own, then we provoke the Lord.

When we seek our own, which means we stand independent; that's what substitutionism is.

Substitutionism stands independent of the Father because in substitutionism the man gives first. That's idolatry.

In propitiation God gives first, and we reciprocate that. That's called faith.

In substitutionism man gives first.
 

Cleaning up the Mess Left by Religious Magazine Authors

God is cleaning up the mess, confusion, and devastation left in the wake of religious magazine authors experimenting with different truths and initiating false movements and claiming to speak for God, while seeking their own way to God.

I will approach God with song

I will approach God with dance

I will approach God with fasting

I will approach God with flagellation, which means that which is of self — I will put myself under a form of suffrage to approach unto God.

That's substitutionism. That was taught by the fallen Watchers, and false apostles teach that—substitutionism — man approaches God in his own worthiness, which means he does not feel that he can approach God except if he has something of himself to offer....substitutionism.

But in propitiation we offer unto God Himself; we love Him because He first loved us.

 So, we don't seek our own, but we seek that which is of another's wealth, which has to do with that we are joined to one house for increase by the substance He gives to us.

So, we do not provoke the Lord. We do not provoke the Lord, which talks about, What say I then, that an idol is anything?

So he talks about the word idols right there, standing independent.

He's bringing to their attention about that substitutionism. And then he's talking about the state of the conscience, which has to do with that which is of propitiation. So he talks about the conscience, the grace of God, not to give offence, as to stand in protest to honoring the King.
“Even as I please all men” (vs 33), so therefore,
“Be ye followers of me (the stewardship) even as I also am of Christ.”
He's showing that relationship structured there; that is, by this witness.

Vs 2: “Now I praise you brethren, that ye remember me in all things, and keep the
ordinances, as I delivered them to you
.”

The Praise

Now I praise you, brethren,” being as the crown of His virtue is seen within you at this point in time, as you acknowledge my stewardship. In this you honor Christ the King.

We see Paul also spoke about that in the book of Hebrews (10:28,29):

He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant wherewith he was sanctified as an unholy thing and hath done despite the Spirit of grace”, or dishonoured Christ's covenant blood as that of a dog; unholy and unclean?

Of course it doesn't use the word dog there, but that's what the Apostle Paul is implying there, as concerning trampling upon the blood, re: the slaughter of the animals' blood under the law.

We have a Better Covenant; Better Promises

The priests would slip in the animals' blood, and therefore, he was using that analogy to show that we are no longer resourcing that which is of the law of the moral code. He was showing that now we are resourcing that which is of Christ, which means, those things that are sealed in His blood, which is the blood of the Lamb of God, not that of the beast.

He goes on here, “Now I praise you, brethren,” concerning that the joy of the Lord is now being expressed within you when you honor the King bowing the head to Christ by accepting my stewardship.

I praise you, brethren, that you remember me in all things,”
Highlight the words, remember me; regarding that the crown of this virtue being seen within you acknowledges the stewardship, and the wisdom which God issues for your obedience by providing you the tokens for this faith. So, God provides His tokens which is required for our wisdom. Wisdom is necessary to know how to approach the altar and to show our love towards Him to keep these ordinances. God is love!

The false religious system doesn't have wisdom because it doesn't have the tokens, it doesn't know how to approach unto God, and it doesn't know the ordinances: government, truth, Spirit, prayer, preaching, prophecy, the gifts, the callings, and the graces of God.

We see these (things) are the necessary tokens for your ordinances, “even as I delivered them to you.” Paul says the stewardship received these things as was issued from the King, and here the Apostle Paul is making reference to himself (the word, I, there). He's identifying his stewardship, not as a point of pride, but making distinction for function.

Vs 3: “But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the
head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.


What's interesting about this is that the false religious system has viewed this knowledge right here in the light of the flesh. But here the Apostle Paul is providing for us a mystery in a parable.

But I would have you know” that is, concerning the relationship in this pattern.

The relationship of this pattern is concealed in the parables, the parables of marriage, and you, as this crown, of His own kingdom.

But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man;”

We see this in verse 3 here. The woman, being the body of believers, and the man is the necessity of stewardship. And the head of Christ is God, which shows that Christ is the divine source of our servitude which shows the true unity of faith; the divine source, the Crystal Sea (Father).

Christ carried the knowledge of God, our Father, into this dimension. God being the fire-charity, was brought into this dimension, and it was evident upon Jesus' baptism: we see water and fire uniting together in a person of the flesh.

The prophet, Isaiah, also saw that and identified himself as saying, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me”.

That's what Isaiah was saying, (i.e. “the knowledge I have received is for the purpose of); the anointing provides us this insight in this perspective, so that through this knowledge there is a source that is now provided so that those which are hungering and those which are poor and those which are in need have all their needs met by this source of the anointing through the lips of the stewardship...so, “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me”. The Lord is anointing me to preach good tidings to the meek.

Remember, Jesus said that in quoting Isaiah, showing that Isaiah properly understood concerning the placement of that anointing. The anointing enters into the knowledge to give life to the soul.

Let's read on here in verse 4:

Vs 4: “Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonoreth
his head.”


So, highlight the words, praying or prophesying. These are the things the Apostle Paul will bring out here in chapter 12. Look at the last verse in chapter 12, vs 31: “But covet earnestly the best gifts:” But covet the use of tongues and to seek charity in prophecy. That's what he's talking about, the best gifts: the token of tongues and the tokens of your charity in prophecy. We testify of Christ in this prophecy.

“But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet show I unto you a more excellent way.”
There's your leadership. I will show, this is where the wisdom of God will direct you for increase in all His gifts. The prophetic path will benefit you in this.

The Apostle Paul brings tongues and prophecy out to the attention of the Corinthians, beginning there within the gifts, showing how each member profits from these tokens that are provided and how we also work and labor with these things, that the charity which we receive will always follow the divine pattern that will stand apart from any offence. Therefore, we're fulfilling that which Paul said, “Let no man seek his own, but every man another's wealth”. We're not standing independently in substitutionism, but we're standing and bonding by His propitiation. We have a propitiation with the Father, Jesus Christ.

“Every man praying and prophesying” Highlight the words, praying and prophesying.
Every man,” so, highlight the word, man there also, “praying and prophesying”. The purpose of our expression is the bonding, showing honor to the King. The church mates with the King by these gifts.

A soldier that does not remove his helmet in the presence of the King, dishonors the King.
Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered,” which means, being shielded;
a stranger, having his head covered, “dishonoureth his head.” And also opposes the stewardship.
The person that doesn't remove the helmet or the hat, dishonors the stewardship, or the source.

Vs 5: “But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered,
dishonoureth her head, for that is even all one as if she were shaven.”


But every woman praying or prophesying; he mentions it again, so highlight praying and prophesying in verse 4 and praying and prophesying in verse 5.

But the woman that has her head covered is honoring her head, which is Christ.

A servant, as this woman here, shows respect to the King, saying when the head is covered, what she is doing is presenting herself to the King for the purpose of mating. But the soldier that has his head covered is standing against him. The helmet on the head is for the purpose of an army coming against another army. A soldier is dressed for combat when he puts his helmet on his head. But when he removes his helmet from the head, he is showing servitude to the source of his authority. So the man praying or prophesying apart from that stewardship is dishonoring the King that issued to him the order.

The church that refuses to remove the hat is dishonoring the stewardship; they're standing independent of the King.

“Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonors his head”; showing open opposition, or being combative. But the woman that prays or prophesies shows respect by honoring these tools of the King, the King that gives to beautify...the King which he gives these gifts to beautify for the purpose of the mating. We can see this in the book of Esther—

Praying or prophesying, having her head uncovered, dishonors her head. She that removes the veil is refusing the mating, refusing the bonding. We see this in the book of Esther, just make a note on that, Esther 2:12; we can see some of these things there.

Esther chapter 2 around verse 12:
“Now when every maid's turn was come to go in to King Ahasuerus, (see there's a preparatory stage) after that she had been twelve months, according to the manner of the women, (for so were the days of their purifications)....

Now, God gives us tokens for our purifications, for the purpose of being bonded to Him. So the purifications must be accomplished for the women, as he says right here, twelve months:
“six months with oil of myrrh”. Highlight the word, oil of myrrh. And we also know that gold, frankincense and myrrh were provided for the king...Here, the myrrh had to do with a fragrance, but it also had to do with the departing from her family's house to be joined to the king. We're departing from our family, that which is of the flesh, to be joined to that which is the family of the Spirit. So, the oil of myrrh is put upon us to identify this place of separation—the oil of myrrh.

So, he says here, “six months with oil of myrrh” (which is the number of man, the number 6 represents man, man was created in the 6th day)
“and six months with sweet odours, and with other things for the purifying of the women
;)”
So we see a preparatory stage of separation, which means you're being ripped or torn from the flesh. Let's go back here. Why is this necessary for the woman's head to be covered. That is, to honor her head or the king.

Here she refuses to honor her head (I'm back in 1Corinthians 11:5 now).
“But every woman that prays or prophesies (in this respect of the purification process) that is, they receive a token of tongues, but refuse to honor the stewardship. Therefore, there's a breach within that bonding in the refusal; she's refusing to abandon the flesh to be joined to the Spirit.

So, every woman that prays or prophesies with her head uncovered, dishonors her head. That means, now she's going to walk contrary to the token laws of the king, and therefore, showing no respect to the law of government.

The Spirit of the Lord also spoke of this likeness here in 2nd Kings19 around verse 21. The king of Assyria was making a breach in Israel, and he goes on, I'll start in verse 19:
“Now therefore, O LORD our God”, Hezekiah prays, “I beseech you, save you us out of his hand, that all the kingdoms of the earth (which has to do with that by this open sign of denying the king of Assyria, that all the nations will know that we are truly of your seed, of the seed of Abraham).
That you are the LORD God, even you only”-- that you are the true light of the world and not the gods of Assyria.

Now look at verse 20, “Then Isaiah the son of Amoz sent to Hezekiah” (notice Isaiah is the steward. Isaiah received this, not just any common person. God did not elect to use a common believer because of their credibility. God elected to use the stewardship because the credibility was already established. This is what the saints are learning today, concerning establishing a foundation of credibility so that when the revelation of the Lord is truly given, that it will be listened to, that the grace of God will be present and embraced by the body.

Then Isaiah the son of Amoz sent to Hezekiah, saying, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, That which you have prayed to me” {now you see the importance of stewardship in bringing this knowledge for faith, for deliverance and refuge} “against Sennacherib king of Assyria I have heard.”

Vs 21: “This is the word that the LORD has spoken concerning him;”
{Notice the language he uses right here} “The virgin daughter of Zion has despised you
The virgin daughter of Zion has despised you, which means, she has removed the covering. She is not covering her head.

Those of faith refuse to lie with you;  Sennacherib, king of Assyria. The virgin daughter of Zion has despised you, she has rebuked you by removing the veil, “and laughed you to scorn;” (at your logic, to provoke, which means, Isaiah is saying here that the daughter of Zion now is in laughter, refusing to bond with him, to marry him-that means to accept his threats and to capitulate to his war machine.

the daughter of Jerusalem has shaken her head at you,” which means she is removing the covering at King Sennacherib's offer, for your gods are a lie and a snare. That's what he's talking about: she refuses to remove the veil for the purpose of acknowledging your gods, the lie of your gods, your idols,
vs 22: “whom you have reproached and blasphemed, and against whom have you exalted your voice and lifted up your eyes on high, even against the Holy One of Israel”.

Let's go back here and we can see what the Apostle Paul is drawing upon here.
Here we can see that the daughter of Zion was dishonoring the proposals of the king of Assyria as he was coming against Israel. When he came against Israel, he was prophesying through the lips of Rab-shakeh, “Do not believe Hezekiah, for those who believe Hezekiah will be defiling themselves.

Every woman praying or prophesying with her head uncovered dishonors her head.” For that is even all as if she were shaven” that means, to expose her shame, and must be separated from her husband.

Vs 6: “For, if the woman (the body of believers disallow government)...
if the woman be not covered, (as in her house) let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a (or reproach) for woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered.” In Deuteronomy; the purpose of the covering is for the purpose of the mourning of the separation.

In Deuteronomy 21 verse 10, it says here,
“When you go forth to war against your enemies, and the LORD you God has delivered them into your hands, and you take them captive, (vs 11) And you see among the captives a beautiful woman, and have desire to her, that you would have her to your wife; (vs12) Then you shall bring her home to your house; and she shall shave her head, and pare her nails;

The reason why is to remove the powers of her past to be born again.
(Vs 13) “And she shall put the raiment of her captivity from off her,” which has to do with that she was not wearing a covering, and she should now be covered.
“and she shall remain in your house, and bewail her father and her mother a full month;”
This is the time of her purification to be joined to her husband.

Now, let's go back to 1Corinthians. You can see that those which dishonor the king refuse to remove the helmet. The pastors and the ministries which refuse to remove the helmet (covering) in respect to the stewardship also dishonor the king, which means they're combating the king.

The Woman (church) Who Refuses to Cover Her Head

The woman, on the other hand, as she refuses to cover her head, is dishonoring the king; which shows that those of the church that are using the tokens apart from the stewardship, that which the Lord has sanctified, is dishonoring her head, and therefore, she should be shorn or shaven, to show her shame. And that 's what God is doing today to the false religious system. God is shorning their head, which means that they are as shame to his kingdom.

Vs 7: “For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man.”

“For a man indeed ought not to cover his head” which has to do with that this is to show the pattern.
“For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God:”
This is the very crown. So a man indeed ought not to cover his head, in order for God's image to show forth. That means, to bow the head. You're bowing the head to the passing of the king.

“forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God
:” the very crown that serves, being subject to God. We talked about that in the book of Revelation, concerning the source, the Crystal Sea (Father of Glory).

But the woman, as the church, is the glory of man. So you see the woman, as the church is servant that gives substance to honor the King, that is to build his house. She that's going to build His house must comply to the rules of mating.

The man, being the stewardship, is not of the woman. The brethren do not call the stewardship, but the stewardship calls together the brethren:

Vs 8: “For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man.

The man is not of the woman, but the woman of the man, which means the church does not select the stewardship, but the stewardship builds the church, as Christ bore us to Himself and adopted us to build His house. We love Him because He first loved us: the man is not of the woman (that's substitutionism), but the woman is of the man (which shows the propitiation).

Vs 9: “Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man.”

Neither was the man created for the woman;”
The stewardship wasn't given to stand alone, but again, rather given to the church, where she is to reciprocate to Him, that's for the honor of Christ.
Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man.”

The Sanctified Pattern

Vs 10: “For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels.


This has to do with the sanctified pattern.
The Spirit of the Lord works with your humbleness. The Spirit works with submission. So, we humble ourselves to the Lord because of the angels.

For this cause” when the building is confirmed, she then honors her husband, being the man (or Christ). When she has power on her head because of the angels, the Spirit will then give life to this.
The anointing enters into the submission on her head because of the angels, the woman being the church.

Nevertheless, as the parable speaks to us, in order to abound with fruit we must honor the King.

Vs 11: “Nevertheless neither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man, in the Lord.


In other words, a king cannot be separated from Himself; a king apart from the tokens, that which honors His position. So he's speaking of this, that the king does not salute himself and is not apart from himself.

Because it's showing that all these tokens put together. 1John 4, concerning, "we love Him because He first loved us".

So, this shows again, the differences between propitiation and substitutionism.

Substitution: The man wears the helmet and the woman removes the veil because what they're doing is that they want to first give to God, but it's the other way around. God gives first to us.

Propitiation: The man removes the helmet and the woman puts on the veil, which shows her submission to the king and the mating for the house, as we saw in the purification in the book of Esther.

Vs 12: “For as the woman is of the man, even so is the man also by the woman; but all things of God.”

“For as the woman is of the man
” the body of Christ is of the man, or the steward,
even as the man is also by the woman” --that's for the increase,
but all things of God.”

You see how the Apostle Paul brings everything in conclusion in this one summary. All the tokens point to one source, being our Father, because He's the true source of all things for the purpose of our learning.

Join us and build the House of God according to the true grace.
