BONUS LESSON: Lesson # 14 – OUR FINAL CHANGE FROM PHYSICAL TO SPIRITUAL BODIES
For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: 21 Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself (Phil. 3:20-21).

Lesson 13 – THE CHRISTIAN WOMAN’S SPIRITUAL WARDROBE – Part 2
“I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels” (Isa. 61:10).
So far, we have learned much about the wardrobes (physical clothing) of men and women in the Scriptures. We have seen where prophets wore rough clothing; kings’ children wore dainty clothing; harlots wore deceitful clothing and the poor were content just to have cloth to cover their bodies. All those examples were to get our minds ready to think about our clothing as Christian women—both our day-to-day physical dress and our spiritual clothing as the bride of Christ.

Lesson 12 – THE CHRISTIAN WOMAN’S SPIRITUAL CLOTHING
All Christians (men and women) should adorned themselves inwardly and outwardly with only what is fitting for one of God’s children. Our outward appearance should never shame the name of Jesus or our Heavenly father, nor should we have moth-eaten clothes or nakedness instead of the spiritual clothing God has intended. We know that man looks on the outward appearance while God looks at the heart (1 Sam. 16:7). “But the Lord said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the Lord sees not as man sees; for man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.”
So where should our focus be? Should we think only about our outward appearance?

Lesson 11 – A WOLF’S WARDROBE
“Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves” (Matt. 7:15).
Not long ago, the treasurer for our congregation brought a 20-rupee note (Indian currency) to ask what he should do with it. He said somebody had put it into the collection plate and he could not deposit it in the bank for fear of going to jail. Of course, what he had in his hand was a counterfeit note and not a real one at all. Neither my husband nor I could look at the note and tell the difference between the fake and a real one. Comparing two 20-rupee notes side by side would scarcely show any differences at all. It is the same way with false teachers (wolves in sheep’s clothing).

“But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? Behold, they which are gorgeously apparelled, and live delicately, are in kings’ courts” (Luke 7:25).
