Demon of Makeup
& Women's Self-Glory
I had to sit on today's revelation for three days while the Ruach (Spirit) has explained it more clearly to me before publishing it now. This is not a revelation I sought for, though I have long suspected there was something occultic operating in the makeup industry and in the practice itself, but came out of the blue when I woke up, had a vision of a beautiful young woman putting on makeup, and heard Yahweh say to me: "This is a girl putting on Cleon". And Yahweh chose an old Greek word (Cleon) to emphasise the pagan background of this practice.
Cleon is a very rare Greek name seldom used today and literally means 'glory'. In other words, the woman was putting on artificial 'glory' to present herself to the world. But as what, and why?
It has long baffled me why many women put on make-up when going out but don't do the same for their husbands at home. What are they actually doing? Whose attention are they seeking?
In an article I wrote 8 years ago entitled, Jezebel: The End Time
Queen of Heaven Demoness which caused quite a reaction at the time, I wrote:
What was interesting about the vision was that once makeup had been applied to the cheeks, I was taken close up and saw that it consisted of numerous hexagons linked together like scales. In time the scales started falling off, like a snake sloughing its skin off.
"Jezebel, we are told in the Bible, painted her face (2 Ki.9:22). Jeremiah and Ezekiel both refer to it as the art of seduction, employed by harlots to lure men into immorality (Jer.4:30; Ez.23:40-44). Jezebel was a pagan, practiced witchcraft, and worshipped Baal. Indeed, wicked and immoral women have for a long time been called "Jezebels". Nils Pederson in an article, The Painted Face, relates this interesting story:
"Today we don't even think twice about women's makeup. Indeed, even men are doing it now. To suggest that something might be 'wrong' about it would provoke a predictable reaction. Now I am not saying that wearing makeup necessarily makes a woman a sinner - however, a question has to be asked: what is the ground cause for wearing makeup in the first place? People wear it in public. One can understand some old people wearing it to cover up their wrinkles but what is the principal purpose? Is it not to lure? To capture people's attention? Is it not frequently to sexually attract? Do people really wear makeup at all times just to "look nice"? And if so, what for?
"In this connection (of "Jezebels") I should like to share an incident. About 25 years ago, a returned missionary from China spoke at our church and related the following. He had been to China for 7 years, and upon returning to this country for furlough [leave] he immediately noticed something different about the American women. In the 7 years that he had been gone, many of the women had adopted the popular fad of painting their faces [makeup]. In China, the prostitutes were the only women who painted their faces, wore earrings, and had long painted fingernails. This was their means of identifying themselves to their men-partners in sin. The shocking thing to the missionary was that American women had taken on the custom of the heathen harlot" (The Satisfying Portion, March/April 1991, Vol.18, No.1, p.5).
"The wearing of makeup transforms a face into a mask or an illusion. And you will remember from last time how Babylon the Great was able to make herself look stunningly beautiful, to the point that even the Apostle John was awed ... yet the beauty was only skin-deep. Underneath was a harlot and a murderess."
What was going here? When a woman (and especially a wife) moves out of divine tavnith and puts on make-up to make herself attractive to any man apart from her husband or to otherwise seduce men, she is committing the spirit of adultery and invoking the demon Cleon. She is putting a curse on herself and behaving like a harlot.
Nearly 10 years ago I issued some guidelines in an article, What Kind of Clothes Should We Wear? (it's worth reading it through for a more detailed biblical exegesis) and in the matter of makeup gave the counsel that women should "only use makeup in moderation or, preferably, not at all, and then only use mild colouration" but in the light of today's revelation would add the following:
As I pointed out in the article cited above, clothes modify our behaviour. But so does makeup. Therefore I have to ask this question: What are you putting on psycholoically and spiritually when you paint your face? The true spiritual tavnith (pattern) for dress of any kind, including makeup, remains the instructions of the apostle Peter:
As unmarried daughters should honour Yahweh first, and then their fathers in the manner of clothing and make-up, so married women should honour Yahweh first, and then their husbands in the same. What we wear is a reflection of our character and spirituality. It will tell the world whether we are modest and chaste or not, whether we are seeking attention and self-glory or the glory our husbands (whether literal for women, or allegorical for men), whether we fear and obey the Davar (Word) of Torah or not. A woman wearing makeup (if at all) should use it in such a way that (a) no-one would know it was even there and (b) that it does not draw attention to self or dishonour her head.
"Wives, likewise, be submissive to your own husbands, that even if some do not obey the Davar (Word), they, without a word, may be won by the conduct of their wives, when they observe your chaste conduct accompanied by fear. Do not let your adornment be merely outward -- arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel -- rather let it be the hidden person of the lev (heart), with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet ruach (spirit), which is very precious in the sight of Elohim (God). For in this manner, in former times, the set-apart (holy) women who trusted in Elohim (God) also adorned themselves, being submissive to their own husbands, as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him master (lord, sir), whose daughters you are if you do good and are not afraid with any terror" (1 Peter 3:1-6, NKJV).
If you have been wearing makeup for self-glory or adulterously now is the time to confess and repent to Yahweh, fathers and husbands, cast Cleon out, and adjust your thinking, feeling and behaviour. Wear makeup only to the glory of your head and always in moderation. If in doubt, don't use it at all. This is a pretty touchy subject, as indeed all demonic and/or self-worth issues are, so must be approached scripturally and firmly in ahavah (love) and emet (truth).
Finally, consider all the poisons in contemporary make-up, many of which are carcinogenic, not to mention all the cruelty perperuated on animal victims in the creation of these vanity products. There are many simple and natural ways to enhance beauty that are to be recommended for the proper maintenance of skin .
The bottom line as far as beauty is concerned is, in any case, the beauty that comes from within that transforms even the plainest face into something out of this world. That is what believers should be seeking for, not in order to 'be' beautiful, but as a natural byproduct of unselfconsciously living a set-apart (holy) life to Elohim (God) and to husbands. This is the true way to happiness, not the adulterous and idolatrous ways of Cleon.
 You'll find some really good materials on Mike Adams' website, Natural News which in most health issues lines up with the beliefs of this ministry.
Comments from Readers
 "[Demonic] entry could also be [because of] rejection, a wounded soul, don't you think? I know young girls who do not dare to leave home without their make-up on. So there is a bondage indeed. But the roots can be found in fear or rejection. And sometimes just the pain of having acne" (HB, Holland, 3 May 2012).
 Yes, I agree that low levels of self-worth and fear of rejection can also be reasons why girls wear makeup (Lev-Tsiyon, 3 May 2012)
 "In the Book of Enoch, it is written that it was the "sons of God" (fallen [nefilim] angles, demons) who had taught the women the "painting of their eyes." Creepy! It left me with a very sick feeling inside when I read that. Covering up blemishes or scars is one thing. The woman pictured above has way too much makeup on. It's heavy and dark. The very sad thing is that our cultures cause women to think and feel that they must look sexual in order to be acceptable -- and there are men who buy into this who look for it when looking for a wife. Some even leave their wives, because to them, [because] their wives are not attractive enough. It's sad. It teaches that people are like objects -- people become objectified -- instead of looking at people as human beings and evaluating their inner character and personality, how moral they are and how Godly" (LALM, USA, 4 May 2012).
 "The Nephallim Gadriel and other demons taught this to humans, along with making weapons and alchemy..." (OJ, USA, 1 September 2013).
 Quite possibly though I have doubts that the source of this information (1 Enoch) is reliable - it has undoubtedly become corrupted which is why I tread warily with the pseudepigrapha. I believe the Bible gives us sufficient grounds for dealing with the problem per pro my devotional (Lev-Tsiyon, 1 September 2013).
