Regulations for Worship
Where is a woman’s veil worn aside from wedding ceremonies? There is a correlation between the veil worn in a wedding and the regulations for worship. In the Bible, God specifies the day of worship through the Ten Commandments. Similarly, God also specifies the regulations for worship. We can see this through the parable of the wedding banquet.
“The Kingdom of Heaven can be illustrated by the story of a king who prepared a great wedding feast for his son …But when the king came in to meet the guests, he noticed a man who wasn’t wearing the proper clothes for a wedding. ‘Friend,’ he asked, ‘how is it that you are here without wedding clothes?’ But the man had no reply. Then the king said to his aides, ‘Bind his hands and feet and throw him into the outer darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’”
Matthew 22:2-14 (NLT)
In this parable, Jesus compares the kingdom of heaven to a wedding banquet. Just as there are proper “wedding clothes” for a wedding, there are also proper clothes to enter the kingdom of heaven. In other words, there are certain regulations we must follow when we worship God so that our worship may be acceptable to God.
