BEWARE OF “HAIR ATTACHMENT”

(- BBC Reports)
[Additional Reports By Bro. Eric Oparaoha]

The scripture in 1 Peter 3:3-4 admonishes against outward adorning of plaiting of the hair and of the wearing of gold or of putting on of apparel. Indeed, undue “make-up” with hair attachment to our God-given appearances (especially the hair, which is the crowning glory to our physical appearances) is an ingratitude to God.

Worse still, it is the fact that Satan has now so manipulated those involved to the extent that “hairs” collected from animals and all manner of human beings, including the possessed and the demonized ones, are fused together and sold as “human hairs” to undiscerning users.
This could result in disastrous consequences on the spiritual life and health of some users. The following report of BBC News on “human hairs” tells the story better.

The salons that hope you can’t tell goats and humans apart
By Sam PirantyBBC News
In China, hair extensions, wigs and weaves are big business. Buyers in hair salons and shopping malls are often told they are getting real human hair – but when you look closely, sometimes things are not as they seem.
In a tiny village in Hunan province, central China a man dressed in a white vest and shorts rides around the dusty streets on a rusty bicycle, shouting and ringing his bell.
I stop him and ask what he’s up to. “I’m collecting hair,” he says. “When I ring my bell women come out and I cut their hair. I make hair extensions.”
I ask him how much he pays women for their hair. “I offer them a good price, but I need to make a profit,” he says with a smile.
The streets of the village are covered in hair drying beneath the scorching sun. Some of the hair is definitely human hair, yet the number of shaven goats wandering the streets suggests otherwise.
After collecting the hair, he takes it to a small factory where ten women weave it together into hair extensions.
Looking on, I can see that some of the hair being woven together is human and some of it definitely is not. He then sells it to larger factories where it is treated with chemicals before being sold to shops around the country.
I left Hunan wanting to see where the hair went next. So I visited the megacity of Guangzhou. The city – formerly known as Canton – has always been one of China’s most important trading hubs and wealthiest cities.
Massive hotels and office blocks dominate the skyline close to the vast and murky brown Pearl River. The tops of the skyscrapers are hidden amid the thick palpable pollution.
Beneath the smog is where I met Lily. She owns a shop selling wigs and hair extensions in Guangzhou’s enormous beauty exchange centre in an area known as Sanyuanli.
Here you can buy anything from nail polish and night cream to foot spas and foundation. The lower floor of the market however is dedicated to hair – terrifying mannequins sport wigs and weaves of every colour the rainbow has to offer.
Lily sits on a stool in her shop, bunching the recently delivered hair together into fringes, curls and metre-long straight extensions.
The hair is held together with labels which supposedly tell us their country of origin. Here, apparently, one can buy hair from Peru, India and Brazil.
There are no Chinese customers here though – every buyer seems to be from Africa. Nigerians, Ghanaians, Congolese, South Africans, Angolans and Ugandans scour the impressive hall for the best-priced hair extensions available. They tell me they can triple their money when they get home.
Towards the end of a busy day I ask shop owner Lily how her business is doing. “It’s ok, we used to sell to Europe and America, but now nearly 100% of my clients are in Africa,” she says.
Lily shows me a list of the nationalities of the traders she sells to – of the 39 countries on the list, 37 are in Africa, reflecting the large African community in this city.
“It’s good business for me, but the problem is we pay more for the hair now, as living and production costs in China are higher now.”
Lily then describes, how in order to make her business profitable, she has to use fake scales when weighing out hair to customers and buy a mixture of human hair and synthetic or goat hair to lower costs.
“We say it is Indian hair or Brazilian hair, but in fact it is normally Chinese hair or even goat hair. They never realise. This is the only way we can keep things cheap,” she says, adding that her customers always drive a hard bargain.
Before we can finish our conversation Marie from Uganda comes in, demanding: “I want Brazilian hair, only Brazilian, give me your best quality and best price.”
The negotiation goes on for hours under the watchful eyes of the wig-wearing, angry-looking mannequins. As the sun sinks and the moon begins to rise over Guangzhou’s polluted skyline, Marie leaves empty-handed.
I run after her as she leaves the shop to ask if she knows that some of the hair isn’t human. “Of course I know. The Chinese think we’re stupid. I come all the way from Uganda and they think I don’t know hair,” she says.
Marie pauses and then lets out a huge, hearty laugh before coming close to whisper in my ear: “I laugh a lot when I go home and I know that the beautiful women of Kampala have goats on their heads.”

  1. Thank you very much for this teaching. Many Christians have not still know where they belong.
    Because greediness 90% of church pastors, Apostles, Evangelist, Teachers and prophets refused to tell their members the truth.
    God will judge them all.

  2. what a world! Truth is no more in the church as some persons even see it as making Christianity difficult for them. let me ask, “Is Christianity really difficult?.

  3. MAN OF GOD, MAY THE LORD CONTINUE TO EMPOWER YOU TO BOLDLY CONFRONT THE FAERCE EVIL OF THIS AGE. PLZ DO NOT LET ANYBODY OR ANYTHING BRING DOWN YOUR AGRASIVE APROACH TO THE GOSPEL, EITHER THROUGH PERSECUTION OR THROUGH MIND APPEAL IN THE NAME OF CIVILIZATION, DONT EVEN LISTEN TO SOME CHURCH MEMBERS WHO MAY WANT TO GIVE YOU AN ETHIC ADVICE. YOUR STEDFAST WORK AND LOVE FOR GOD WIL BE REWARDED, IN JESUS NAME! AMEN. BRO. AMAECHI FROM P.H.

  4. It can be truly a great and also beneficial item of information and facts. We’re delighted which you distributed this helpful facts along with us. You need to keep us up to date like that. Thank you for spreading.

  5. Lack of knowledge make my people to perished. Even as you are preaching through this medium. The question is how many of this people will believe you. They will tell you it does not matter,it is from the heart. Then you begin to wander which heart.

    .

  6. The Truth Must Be Expose.What A Nice Article For Those Who Have Ears Let Them Hear.Shalom And Keep On And Be Unstopable..

  7. Any form of attachments to the natural hair either by message believer’s or unbelievers is out of place.my fear about this women’s fixing whatever they see on there hand without minding its implication in their personal life is greatly alarming. I agree with my brethren let us tell the truth and the truth will deliver those who has ear to hear.

  8. I have heard churches, even in the end time message shouting HOLY GHOST fire as weapon of warfare against satan. Please explain colossians 3:17. If i may ask is Holy Ghost name or title of God ?.see st luke 3:14_16.

    1. Colossians 3 : 17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
      It simply means Jesus is the Way to the Father John 14 : 6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

      Luke 3: 16 John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire:

      The Holy Ghost is another attribute of God, God in form of the Holy Ghost, He is presently coming in to us as the Holy Ghost. When you say Holy Ghost fire you are talking of the lord Jesus who is in this present form as the Holy Ghost who has a fire, for the lord is a consuming fire Psalm 97: 3 speaks about the fire of God. “A fire goeth before him, and burneth up his enemies round about.”

      When a Christian shouts holy Ghost fire it depend on where the Christian focused his attention to, if he channels it to the enemy it is to consume, if to a believer it is to refine, when a Christian pray with holy ghost fire he is not praying out of context. The Holy Ghost is actually talking of the Spirit of Christ which He gives to the believer and we see in Acts 1 : 8 Jesus said “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
      JOHN 16 : 7 Jesus says “ Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.” and that Comforter is the Holy Ghost which is the spirit of Christ Himself, so, I believe praying Holy Ghost is not out of context.

      The paragraph below is extracted from the sermon preached by “PASTOR WESTON from Jos on THE COMMUNION OF THE HOLYGHOST” (JUNE 2017)

      When Jesus was leaving, actually he said it was expedient for us or for them then the Apostle that He goes, because if He does not go away, the Comforter, the Holy Ghost will not come, because when Jesus was arrived, while Jesus was in Galilee He could not also be in Judea, is that right? While He was in Judea He cannot also go to Galilee so, Jesus Christ was limited to a location, he has to come to your village, He has to be in your community for anything to happen.

      I remember one time, a Pharisee or a teacher of the law, his daughter was sick and he rushed and called Jesus that Jesus should come and lay hands on her so that she would recover, you know and so Jesus has to leave where he is and start going, and in the course of the journey, a woman who has issue with blood, you know, she just decided that look, if only I can touch the helm of the garment of this man I would be healed, and of cause that was what happened but you see, in the process of that, delay was caused, while he lasted, the daughter of this man who was waiting for Jesus to physically come and lay hands on the baby had already died and they told him don’t trouble the master. Somehow, Jesus heard it, he said no problem we would still go to your house, so He can only be in one location at a particular time. And so if he’s around here today, He can only do what He can do when He is here. If He leaves and go to Bauchi State, it is only in Bauchi He can do what He has to do, the people in Zanfara cannot be able to meet him unless they have to travel and go there. So it has limited the access of the benefit that everyman must drive and so He said “it is only important that I go” and when I go away, I will send the Holy Spirit, Ooh! Blessed be the name of the Lord.

      So, I believe you are not breaking the scripture by that.

  9. Morning… I know the bible forbids braids, gold, tattoos, the outer beauty, etc but is it wrong for Christians woman to retouch or use chemicals to make their hair to be a soft or manageable when combing. As African woman our hair is hard and not easy to manage especially when it’s long. Please sir may you kindly enlighten me.

    Or does it mean that since my hair is my glory, when I’m using chemicals to make it soft I’m actually killing or weakening my glory??

    1. there are so many sites that you can visit to get natural products that are hair friendly and would soften your hair without killing it. Scripture says that if we seek, we shall find so my sister seek for the right things that will help grow your hair and not the ones that will soften and cut your hair as is most often the case with most of this chemicals. shalom
