Frequently Asked Questions about the End Time Gospel FAQ

Living Word Broadcast - End Time Gospel FAQ Question: Is it okay for a Christian woman to braid or plait her hair?

Answer:

“Is this the child? Hi, honey. Standing before me is a little girl. And she's little, pretty little girl, little red-headed girl with long PLAITS. I got a little girl at home and her name is Rebekah. And she's trying to have long PLAITS too.“ [We Would See Jesus 54-1205, Binghamton NY]

“About fifteen minutes after that, they started the prayer line, going on. And along come a little girl about six years old, or eight years old, about the age of my little Becky, two long PLAITS hanging down her back. She almost went off the platform. Theycaught her and brought her over. When she got to me, she started putting her little--had her little head down here, and she started putting her little hands around me like that. And she was blind, been born blind. She never had seen.“ [The Unwelcomed Christ Jeffersonville, IN 55-0911]

“About that time, looked around, and somebody begin to scream, and I wondered what. And they'd set a little girl about this high, cute little German girl, little PLAITS hanging down her back... And let me tell you, we Americans, we classed Germany and got the wrong impression. The real born-again children of Germany is just as sweet and dear as any children there is anywhere.“ [The Supernatural Owensboro, KY 56-0129]

“God bless you, honey. A little girl of about fourteen, two more girls, about ten or twelve, coming, making their way, beautiful little thing with long PLAITS, behind. Another one, crying. Look at that. All you older people ought to be ashamed when you see a little baby coming like that, about twelve years old, just so convicted of the Holy Spirit, her heart.“ [Love Shreveport, LA 56-0726]

“There is a--a custom sometime of Indians to PLAIT leather in their hair, and she looked up at me, those little dark looking eyes, and them great, deep wrinkles in her cheeks, the--and the tears cutting their way down through like little ditches through her cheeks. She looked up at me like that and I thought, "Oh, God, somebody's mother. No doubt but that hands has raked back a many a little crying baby's eyes. And maybe never had very many decent meals in all of her life.“ [Blind Bartimaeus Klamath Falls, OR 60-0713]

“You got a little girl in there too? She has got the prettiest hair. I noticed she had it PLAITED, kind of a real yellowish, gold-looking hair. That--that's really pretty. I want to comment you on your hair too, sister. I know it's better. I believe you used to wear short hair, didn't you? Kindy down to your shoulders, kindy bobbed or something like. Or did you? Yes. I...Yes. I...Well, it really looks nice now. See?“ [Thy House, Tifton GA 61-0808]

“Brother Branham, does this First Timothy 2:9 mean a woman cannot BRAID her hair? Does "broid" hair mean "BRAIDED" hair? Now look, sister, now this... I'm--I'm glad that followed this. I never fixed it there, but it just--it followed that good. Notice, a BRAIDED hair in that day was the sign of a street woman; that's what she done, BRAIDED her hair. And Paul said to the Christians, "Now, that adorning, not let it be of a BRAIDED..." (or 'broided' and 'BRAID' is the same thing)--to BRAID their hair, because it looked like the rest of the world. Now, you're supposed not to look like the world or act like the world. See? The women are supposed to be different there. See? No, now, BRAIDING hair... Now, today BRAIDED hair is pretty, and it's a long ways from the fashion of the world. Now, you see the women, the way they do their hair today... Just keep your hair in any way; just don't look like the world. See? Don't look or dress like it. If they wear shorts, you wear a dress. If they--if they do their hair all--cut it all off and bob it, and do them ever... You--you--you just let yours alone.“ [Questions And Answer, Jeffersonville IN64-0823m]

“The BRAID, but BRAID. The question was, "Does 'BRAIDED' mean, "broided" mean, 'BRAIDED'? Yes, that's right. And now, on the street...Now, I looked that up to find out years ago what the "BRAIDED" hair meant. See? The women, actually, the women of old, they just pulled their hair back and tied it, more like in a ponytail today. And they went around... They had robes on like that, but the women coming, making their way, beautiful little thing with long PLAITS, behind. Another one, crying. Look at that. All you older people ought to be ashamed when you see a little baby coming like that, about twelve years old, just so convicted of the Holy Spirit, her heart.“ [Love Shreveport, LA 56-0726]

They had robes on like that, but the women of the street took their hair and BRAIDED it all across their heads, and wrapped it around like that, and put flowers in it and things like that, and that was kind of the--the flapper on the street; just like we would see the flapper today, the way she dresses. I'm saying flapper, 'cause you know I'm an old man; so that's what they's called them in my days. What is it they call them today? I... My, I don't know. Chicks or something or another. So, ever what it is. Give them any kind of a name, they like it.“ [Questions And Answers 64-0823m, Jeffersonville IN]

“Of course, I know women wants to look pretty; that's nature; and that--that's what they should be. See? They should be that way. And so, that's fine, but just don't--don't; otherwise like this, don't look like the world, see; don't pattern after the world. Things wrong... You want it cut off, like that, but don't cut your hair now. If you got the BRAIDS hanging down, or--or whatever it is in your hair, you leave it long. Don't cut it like it's going to look like the world. If you're just them little girls...“ [Questions And Answers 64-0830m, Jeffersonville IN]
