I want to be very clear that what I have written below are merely excerpts from their revelations. In order to properly judge or discern each revelation, I strongly recommend you listen to each one in its entirety. I also want to say that these revelations were not exclusively about godly attire and adornment. Many other things are addressed in their revelations, too. Here are the seven revelations for you to listen to and prayerfully discern for yourself:
James Agboola from Nigeria
A former Muslim, named James Agboola, had a revelation of hell, in which the Lord spoke to him about many things and gave him warnings for the church. One of the things the Lord warned about was adorning our bodies with artificial things. Here is his testimony about that from the video.
And the voice now begin to speak to me in great pain. Jesus Christ speak to me in sadness. He was not happy. He speak to me with a sorrowful heart...He said, “James, do you hear the cry of people in hell?” I said, “Yes, sir.” He said, “Many of them are those who called themselves so-called ‘Christians’ like you. While on earth they claimed holiness and righteousness. But because of ‘little, little, little, little things, small, small, small things’, ‘it doesn’t matter.’”
He said, “That is why many of them are in hell. And I hear them crying that now, they believe. They want to change. But it’s too late. It is too late.” He said, “James, when I created man, I created man in my own image. And my glory was upon him.” He said, “But my enemy, the devil, now added a lot of packaging, packaging of the glory I gave man, packaging of earring, necklace, attachments, all of them. God says, “My eye cannot behold it once anything artificial...”
He said, “James, when I created women, did I put hole in their ear?” I said, “No.” He said, “How come I now saw them with hole in their ears?” He said, “James, when I created man, every part of their body that is supposed to have hole, did I not put hole there?” I said, “Yes.” He said, “How come they now begin to put hole by themselves?” He said, “And once anything artificial has been added, no matter what it is, my face cannot look at them. My face cannot behold them.”
See James Agboola Revelation of Heaven and Hell.
Adelaida de Carrillo from Bolivia
This woman was a nominal Christian up until the Lord took her to heaven and hell. In heaven she was given a very long skirt to wear. Her legs were totally covered. In hell she said she saw a woman of God who was there for dying her gray hair black. Adelaida says the Lord is against the women of God who wear make-up on their face. This is at 38:36 in the video. Jesus said, “I’m only pleased with the natural look on my saints. You don’t need make-up to look beautiful to anyone. Those things don’t please Me. If anyone loves the world, he is an enemy of God.” She urged her listeners to tell others to stop using make-up. She said to ask the Lord, “What are the things I’m doing that don’t please you. The Lord is totally against women that use jewelry."
And the Lord did not just warn her about godly attire and adornment. He also warned about matters of the heart and tongue. She learned that gossip can make you lose you salvation. She said that talking about your pastors and neighbors can make you lose your salvation. She urged her listeners to, "Tell people they need to give their life to Jesus." You really should watch the entire video to hear it directly from her as she told it.

Margaret O Amure from Nigeria
|Sister Margaret O. Amure|
Although I have not yet personally spoken to sister Marguerite herself, I made a good faith effort to do so. I managed to speak briefly with her son, who says that she really did die, and she is a good mother. I also spoke with a pastor who knows her well, named Dr. Stephen Tepu Aikhoje, whom she acknowledges with gratitude at the end of her video testimony, as one of the people who helped her. Dr. Aikhoje said that she was the State Director for the Police Chaplaincy, and he sat under her leadership as such, while they were chaplains together. He went to her home and her church several times to pray with her, as her case was getting worse before she died. He said, "She is a trustworthy leader, very disciplined, and I know her to be truthful." In fact, he distributes CDs of her testimony. Therefore, I feel confident in posting this testimony without any reservations.
Olga from Russia
She was a backslidden woman who returned to church, and sang in the choir, but continued to wear makeup and pants and jewelry. She was taken to the edge of hell to see where she was going. satan had lots of jewelry, many earrings, necklaces, makeup, etc. Olga had all these things, too. She never imagined satan would have these. She saw satan giving out these adornments to Christians, who were still alive on earth. When satan came to her, he said that he had wanted her soul for a long time. She said he would never get her soul, but he replied, “The Word of God says: Any kind of man’s clothing on a woman is an abomination to God.” She said she had heard this many times before from Christian brothers and sisters, including her father, who was a very good and kind man. Her father had asked her many times not to wear makeup and pants. But she listened to another voice on earth, who said, “It’s not sin. It’s not sin to have adornments. Wear pants. The pastor’s wife does. If it’s ok for others, it’s ok for you, too. There is a sister who sings in the choir and wears pants, so it’s not sin.” Now satan was rebuking her from the Word, and she knew she was guilty of everything. She didn’t think the Lord would give mercy to her.
Listen to her testimony on video and read it here.
She also said, “My dear sisters…when you come before the Lord, please cover your heads. How can you stay in God’s presence with your heads uncovered? And you’re not ashamed? Don’t defend yourselves by saying, ‘The Lord says this is only for wives. It’s not for me.’ Sisters, when you come before God, you must cover your heads.”
She continued, “This is why I plead with you, my dear sisters, when you come before God, dress yourself in a godly dress. Don’t dress yourself in this world’s dress. I don’t want to be harsh with you. I am just pleading with you, because if the Lord comes to you and searches your heart, you know it will be found empty. Before you came to the meetings, you didn’t pray. Instead you spent a long time in front of the mirror. Then you come to church and you want blessings? Repent today!”
She said that after being gone for 3 hours, “I came back to my house at 4 AM. I had no rest until 6 AM after I had carried everything out from my house that wasn’t godly and wasn’t pleasing to God. Makeup and everything had to go. I had thought that it would only take me two minutes to take everything out and repent. I tried to clean everything out in only a few minutes, but it took me two hours. I took everything out and I didn’t feel sorry about any of those possessions.”
Claire Andoun from Cameroon
Claire Andoun Atongo is a former prostitute who has become a new creation in Christ. She says the Lord has been speaking to her about the dirtiness in His Church (I urge you to watch her other video here). He's been showing her that there is a strange power that has come into the church, because this unclean spirit has been invited in by the women of God. And the pastors will not preach against it. This strange power is the Queen of the Coast, who leads the sisters in the Church to dress immodestly.
She said, “The Lord is angry about the way women of the last days are dressing. They are dressed like the world. They don’t know the difference between a child of God and non-believer, and no pastor is talking about it. That’s why the Lord is sending me to warn women of the last days. This message is not for everybody. This message is for people, who are really determined to make heaven.”
She had a prophetic dream, in which the Lord said, “My Church is dirty!” Also see it here.
I have spoken with a godly brother, named Yves Nahishakiye, who knows sister Claire well, and knew her before she came to Christ. He vouched for her godly character. I have also spoken with Claire myself on a number of occasions and prayed with her. I have heard her share her salvation testimony, as well as her testimonies of revelations the Lord has given her. [Note: During the three years since this article was first posted, I have gotten to know her better and we have become friends]. I am convinced she is a genuine woman of God, who seeks with all her heart to please the Lord.
On May 10, 2017, about four years after I initially posted this article, Claire went home to be with the Lord. For more about her death and the remarkable circumstances that surrounded it, please see my articles The Home Going of Sister Claire Andoun Atongo, and Revelation of Sister Claire Andoun in Heaven.
Sister Ayodele Sawyerr from Sierre Leone
The Lord showed sister Ayodele Sawyerr a woman of God for whom she had great regard. Regarding this woman, sister Ayo said, "When she stood to minister the Word of God, you feel you can get the Word of God. He said, 'She is my daughter. But look at the way she appears in front of people. Look at the hair attachments, the short skirts; the code of dressing is wrong to God. She's preaching the Word, but the dressing, the [hair] attachments...' Then the Lord said, 'Go and tell her I sent you, and that if she does not repent and remove these things she is putting on -- these attachments, this makeup, these things -- she will not make it.'" Sister Ayo was shocked, because she would not have reached that conclusion on her own!
Afterward the Lord showed her about two ladies, who were preparing to go to a church service (see 49:00 in video). The older one was dressed modestly and never put on anything. She came to the younger one's door and beckoned her to come. But the younger one just said, "Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait." And Jesus said to Ayo, "I want you to look." The Lord said to Ayo as she watched this on the screen, "Look!" All of a sudden the lady came out, and what Ayo saw was that the makeup was so thick that she looked like a Jezebel. And the blouse she put on was like an empty bra. You could see the hair attachments. You could see the way the lady dressed. Sister Ayo said, "She just looked like the Queen of the Coast."
She said the Lord was angry. His countenance changed. His tone of talking changed in that particular area. He said, "Look! They have idolized these things. With all those things, they can no longer serve Me. Go and tell them, My daughter, 'If anyone be a woman of God, no matter the kind of congregation. If she is putting on these things, she will not make it. She will go to hell. They have taken these things more than Me. With all these things, women can't praise Me, women can't worship Me, women can't seek Me with all these things." Sister Ayo was shocked, and said, "God!"
Then He showed her the churches where people used to worship God, so she could see the kind of clothing the people wear. Sister Ayo said, "Some of them are just half naked." The Lord said, "I want you to look, so that you can explain exactly to the women." She said there are more women than men in hell. She says, "Most of the women because of their dressing, it will take them to hell. They think that if they don't dress like this, they will not be attractive to men, and will not find a husband. Seek ye first! When you put God first in your life, He knows what you need."
The Lord showed her the ways the brothers dressed in the Church. They are wearing their trousers down low on their hips, exposing their hind cleavage. They are exposing their chests with open shirts, so you can see their chests and the hair on their chests. She said, "They are not making it to heaven." It looked as if the anointing was with them when they worshiped. Some of them were speaking in tongues, some were rolling, some were falling down, some were shouting as if the anointing was there. But the Lord said that this was not His anointing, because He does not enter into such churches. He said, "I am not in their midst. I do not go into churches like this -- people dressed half naked, exposing their bodies." He said, "Your body is the temple of God. You should live a blameless and holy life." Then she said, "I realized that churches today that say they felt the power of God; because of the way they dress, Jesus does not enter into those type of churches. The anointing they receive is not from God."

Michael Thomas Sambo
A godly brother, whom I have had the privilege of becoming friends with, died three times in two days in 2003. There were two thousand witnesses to this incident, who witnessed all that happened with him. During that time he experienced heaven and hell.
He said that in hell he saw a member of a Pentecostal church, who vowed not to forgive her pastor. He states: When we arrived to hell, a young lady saw me afar off and shouted, "Oh, have you come to help me out of this place?" I could not respond to her question. Then she began to tell me the story of her life. She said, "I was a member of a Pentecostal Church. My pastor told me that wearing trousers, as a lady, was not a sin against God. He also said perming or jerry curling my hair, bleaching my skin, using lipsticks, plaiting my hair with attachments, were never sins against God. But the very day I arrived here I discovered that my pastor had deceived me. Can I ever forgive this man? Now it is too late for me. Can I ever leave this place?" While she talked, hell roared and she was swallowed up by its waves and tides. I did not see her again. She said these things she indulged herself in prevented her from truly serving God and have condemned her to hell; Genesis 35:1-5; Jeremiah 4:30; Proverbs 7:10; Romans 1:21-26; 1Peter 3:3-5. Deuteronomy 22:5
I strongly recommend you read my notes on brother Michael's testimony in my post, Michael Thomas Sambo's Revelation of Heaven and Hell. I have spoken with Michael on a number of occasions and interviewed him on my radio program. I am convinced he is a genuine man of God, who seeks with all his heart to please the Lord.
I would like to add one brief note about relaxing the hair. This is something that applies only to people with naturally curly hair, like the African hair type, which is typically very strong with naturally tight curls. There is a treatment that relaxes this type of hair in an unnatural way.
A Word to the Skeptic
If you are skeptical about these testimonies, and you are not sure they are biblical, then please listen to this warning:
First, I ask you to consider the following Scriptures:
"'I have the right to do anything,' you say—but not everything is beneficial. 'I have the right to do anything'—but not everything is constructive. 1 Co 10:23
"So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don’t fall!" 1 Co 10:12
"Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies." 1 Co 6:19-20
"Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight. For this is the way the holy women of the past who put their hope in God used to adorn themselves. They submitted themselves to their own husbands, like Sarah, who obeyed Abraham and called him her lord. You are her daughters if you do what is right and do not give way to fear." (1Pe 3:3-6)
"Likewise, I want women to adorn themselves with proper clothing, modestly and discreetly, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly garments, but rather by means of good works, as is proper for women making a claim to godliness." (1Ti 2:9-10)
"A woman shall not wear man's clothing, nor shall a man put on a woman's clothing; for whoever does these things is an abomination to the LORD your God." (Deu 22:5)
"For this is the will of God, your sanctification; that is, that you abstain from sexual immorality; that each of you know how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor, not in lustful passion, like the Gentiles who do not know God...For God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life. Therefore, anyone who rejects this instruction does not reject a human being but God, the very God who gives you his Holy Spirit." (1 Thes 4:3-5,7-8)
"May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it." (1 Thes 5:23-24)
"Little children, guard yourselves from idols." (1Jo 5:21; cf. 1 Co 10:14)
"Rescue those being led away to death; hold back those staggering toward slaughter. If you say, 'But we knew nothing about this,' does not he who weighs the heart perceive it? Does not he who guards your life know it? Will he not repay everyone according to what they have done?" (Pro 24:11-12)
"Whoever says to the guilty, 'You are innocent,' will be cursed by peoples and denounced by nations. But it will go well with those who convict the guilty, and rich blessing will come on them." (Pro 24:24)
"My son, do not reject the discipline of the LORD Or loathe His reproof." (Pro 3:11)
Other compelling reasons
Now that we have reviewed a few Scriptures, I ask you to please consider these other reasons:
1. The entire Word of God, not just the New Testament, is our basis for our lives and our beliefs about godly attire and adornment.
2. These testimonies about godly attire and adornment confirm the message of holiness, purity, and modesty that is already written in God’s Word throughout the entire Bible.
3. People are independently receiving the same message about godly attire and adornment from various countries around the world, including Bolivia, Zambia, Nigeria, Sierre Leone, and Ukraine.
4. Both men and women are receiving this message.
5. It is not coming from any single church, denomination, or organization with an agenda.
6. Many of the people getting this message were themselves in violation of it before they got it.
7. There are many more than just these seven people, who have received this message. Now there are at least ten, if you count Samuel Oghenetega, Ezekiel Moses, and Michael Shigaba.
8. When I consider the number of witnesses involved in all twelve of these testimonies, including the confirmations of their testimonies, I think there may be at least twenty to twenty-four witnesses. Even if you cut that in half, it is still ten or twelve witnesses. Even if we just look at the testimony of Michael Sambo, who died three times in two days, there were two thousand witnesses to this incident, who witnessed all that happened with him. Scripture says every matter must be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses. But this was so important to the Lord that we not miss this message that He has given us all these witnesses and confirmations, which is much more than Scripture requires.
9. I have tested the fruit of these messengers to see whether it is good or evil. In many cases, I’ve spoken to these people myself and or spoken to their pastors, parents, children, or others who have verified their story and/or their character.
10. We use a Testimony Review Process on this blog that requires readers to listen to the testimonies of these people in their entirety, prayerfully consider the message, search the Scriptures to see if these things are true, test the fruit of the messengers, and discern the things of the spirit, before they leave a critical comment. Although we have had tens of thousands of page views to these articles, we have not received a critical comment that was able to disprove their message from Scripture, or provide evidence to prove these witnesses are not telling the truth. Every reader has had the same opportunity we have to check on the sources and do the research. Many of our readers live in the same country where these things occurred. They would have been able to expose to us if these people are not genuine, or if there was anything in their lives that is ungodly. Nobody has been able to adequately do so, according to the rules of our review process.
11. The Lord has indicated that he is coming soon, and He is going to do mysterious things before He comes. Because His time is short, He will use a madman, He will use a prostitute, He will even use a child that doesn't have any teeth in his mouth to testify of His coming before He comes. That is why we must correctly discern the things of the Spirit.
12. We must be careful not to blaspheme against the Holy Spirit, which includes neglecting, ignoring, or totally opposing the gift of tongues, prophecy, and interpreting tongues. It includes aggressively opposing the gifts that have or are manifested in different ways. The spectrum of blaspheming against the Holy Spirit is very wide. At one end of the spectrum are those who incorrectly make allegations, based on their prejudices and humanistic views. At the other end are those who judge and condemn others who operate in the gifts, as well as those who directly speak evil of the manifestations of the Holy Spirit. Therefore there is the risk of progressing into the sin of blaspheming against the Holy Spirit. For more on this, please see my post, Blasphemy of the Holy Spirit.
That leaves us without any excuse if we reject this message. God still loves us, but His standard for heaven is high and He is not going to lower it for anyone. We are still saved by grace through faith, and everyone who makes heaven makes it by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, not by being perfect. But grace is not a license to sin and do what you know is displeasing to the Lord. For more on this, please see my post, Seven Reasons to Believe the Seven Divine Revelations.
Putting it All Together
This is the report these people have given of what they experienced. After listening to these testimonies, and checking on some of the people who gave them, it seems to me at the time of this writing that they are genuine.
This is a very serious message, which the Lord in His mercy is giving to warn the Church. And it is not just for the women, it's for the men, too. We must all dress properly, modestly, and discreetly, not using jewels or expensive cloths to adorn ourselves, but the inward beauty of a meek and gentle spirit. The Word of God does tell us that, no matter what you believe about these testimonies. Our love and good works should adorn us.
He is calling us to pursue holiness. For without holiness, no man shall see God. And holiness is not just something inward in our spirit. God wants our bodies to resemble holiness, too. So there must be an outward holiness.
Lastly, it is important to note that God sees the thoughts and motives of the heart, so most importantly our hearts must be pure. And only He has the "complete picture," or the complete set of data regarding each individual, in order to properly judge your soul. So check your thoughts about apparel and adornment, as well as your motives, and your actions. Make sure they all line up with the character of Christ, the holiness of God, and the explicit instructions in the Word of God about the Christian dress code.
Any changes you make should be out of total love for Jesus, understanding Who He is and who you are in Him. Therefore, let your attitude be, "Lord, I love You with all I am, and by the power of the Holy Spirit I’ll do whatever it takes to please You."

If anyone is not convinced after these seven divine revelations, I also encourage you to read Rachael Mushala Testimony of Hell, as well as Visitation of Jesus to Samuel Oghenetaga, who both had a similar message from the Lord about godly attire and adornment.

There you will find many articles of mine about the need for inward godly character, such as the following ones:
If you want to know Jesus personally, you can. It all begins when you repent and believe in Jesus. Do you know what God's Word, the Bible says?
“Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.’” (Mar 1:14b-15). He preached that we must repent and believe.
Please see my explanation of this in my post called "Do You Want to Know Jesus?"
