(Part 4 of 4) Numbers 15 :37-40 Extensive Review
TZITZIT FRINGES & VIOLET RIBBON LAW COMMANDED TO ALL YASHAR’AL (YShRL-ISRAEL)
37 And YHWH spake unto Moses, saying, 38 Speak unto the children of Israel, and bid them that they make them Tzitzit Fringes in the borders of their garments throughout their generations, and that they put upon the Tzitzit Fringes of the borders a ribband of violet: 39 And it shall be unto you for a tzitzit fringe, that ye may look upon it, and remember all the commandments of YHWH, and do them; and that ye seek not after your own heart and your own eyes, after which ye use to go a whoring:
40 That ye may remember, and do all my commandments, and be set-apart unto your Elohim. 41 I am YHWH your Elohim, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, to be your Elohim: I am YHWH your Elohim.
TZITZIT FRINGES & VIOLET RIBBON LAW COMMANDED TO THE KINGS OF YASHAR’AL (YShR’L -ISRAEL)
Book of the Law Mandatory for All Kings of Yashar’al (Israel)
ALL Kings of Yashar’al (Israel) must know Torah Laws, Uphold it and have the book of the Torah given to him by the Levites.
18 And it shall be, when he sitteth upon the throne of his kingdom, that he shall write him a copy of this law in a book out of that which is before the priests the Levites: 19 And it shall be with him, and he shall read therein all the days of his life: that he may learn to fear YHWH his Elohim, to keep all the words of this law and these statutes, to do them: 20 That his heart be not lifted up above his brethren, and that he turn not aside from the commandment, to the right hand, or to the left: to the end that he may prolong his days in his kingdom, he, and his children, in the midst of Israel.
The torah law written in Numbers 15:37-40 also applied to the king’s of Yashar’al as they are the head of the nation representing Yashar’al (Israel) to the people and nations of the world. A King of Yashar’al seen without his Tzitzit Fringes and Violet Ribbon was a true disgrace and dishonor to the nation he represents. Before David became King he sought to bring dishonor to Saul and then soon repented.
As it is written…
1 Samuel 24
1 And it came to pass, when Saul was returned from following the Philistines, that it was told him, saying, Behold, David is in the wilderness of En-gedi. 2 Then Saul took three thousand chosen men out of all Israel, and went to seek David and his men upon the rocks of the wild goats. 3 And he came to the sheepcotes by the way, where was a cave; and Saul went in to cover his feet: and David and his men remained in the sides of the cave.
4 And the men of David said unto him, Behold the day of which YHWH said unto thee, Behold, I will deliver thine enemy into thine hand, that thou mayest do to him as it shall seem good unto thee. Then David arose, and cut off the skirt of Saul’s robe privily. :5 And it came to pass afterward, that David’s heart smote him, because he had cut off Saul’s skirt. 6 And he said unto his men, YHWH forbid that I should do this thing unto my master, YHWH’sanointed, to stretch forth mine hand against him, seeing he is the anointed of YHWH.
1 Samuel 24 gives a deep understanding as to the seriousness of a King wearing Tzitzit Fringes and Tekayleth Ribbon. Image the embrassment Saul must have faced when he returned to his castle without his Status Symbol? Yes, I said status symbol. Tekayleth was not a cheal dye used by all. It was expensive and fringes were also handmade creations by skilled seamatresses.
Saul’s Status Symbol on his hem was the first thing David went after before changing his mind. Tzitzit Fringes and Tekayleth ribbon is MAJOR part in Royal Apparel.
YASHAR’AL IS A NATION OF PRIESTS, A SET-APART NATION
Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: 6 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and a set-apart nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.
It’s no surprise that when Yah’s people hear the truth concerning who they are and return back to him, that they study and desire much to teach the torah and be preacher of Yah’s word. It’s only natural for him to do so. It’s in his/her DNA.
If you preach Yah’s word, wouldn’t it be a no brainer that you would wear Tzitzit Fringes and Tekayleth (violet) ribbon on the hem of your garment? As the king most certainly would not be caught without his Status Symbol of Tzitzit Fringes and Tekayleth ( Violet) ribbon, a common Israelite should also wear them as Yashar’al is a Set-apart Nation to Yah a Set-apart Priesthood.
For thou art a set-apart people unto YHWH thy Elohim: YHWH thy Elohim hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth. 7 YHWH did not set his love upon you, nor choose you, because ye were more in number than any people; for ye were the fewest of all people: 8 But because YHWH loved you, and because he would keep the oath which he had sworn unto your fathers, hath YHWH brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you out of the house of bondmen, from the hand of king of Mitzrayim.
PUNISHMENT FOR WEARING STRANGE CLOTHING
1:8 And it shall come to pass in the day of YHWH‘s sacrifice, that I will punish the officials, and the king’s children, and all such as are clothed with strange apparel.
Why are the the officials and kings children punished for wearing strange apparel?
The torah states the type of garments Yashar’al (Israelites) are to wear.
In Zephaniah 1:8 it states that officials and Kings children will be punished for wearing strange clothing. A strange garment is one that does not have Tzitzit Fringes and Violet Ribbon, but it doesn’t end there. A strange garment is more than just clothing without Tzitzit Fringes and Violet Ribbon, it’s one that goes against other torah laws concerning clothing.
The Hebrew word for strange in the KJV Bible, is Nokri. See below. Nokri means foreign or alien.
The officials of Yashar’al (Israel) and the King’s Children are examples and high figures among the people. As they do, the people follow. That is why Yah commands the King to know the torah and keep it.
If all of Yashar’al are Set-apart to Yah, then most certainly on Set-apart days and special events you ought to at least wear a Hebrew Garment with Tzitzit Fringes and Violet (Tekayleth) Ribbon . If you represent yourself as a leader, or priest or a royalty, then you BETTER wear the Proper Hebrew Israelite Garment with Tzitzit Fringes and Violet (Tekayleth) ribbon whenever you are in the public eye.
STRANGE APPAREL vs NOT WEARING FRINGES AND RIBBON
In Zephaniah 1:8
It states that Yahweh will punish the Officials and Kings children for wearing strange clothing.
It doesn’t say he will punish the people for not having fringes and ribbon.
I removed the t-shirts on my website for this very reason. I don’t want to promote none Distinctive Israelite Apparel with fringes and ribbon. It’s half way, not all the way. Yah revealed to me that true Hebrew Garments are more than tzitzit fringes and it should never be reduced to such. And I need to be true to it to separate our look from the nations.
I strongly believe Tzitzit Fringes and Tekayleth ribbon should only to be used on a true a Hebrew Garment. Otherwise you are wearing a costume, not a custom garment.
Why so strict? Because we need to RE-ESTABLISH OURSELVES as a nation.
We can’t or should not REDUCE our style and culture clothes to cheap fringes on a cheap t-shirt. I don’t believe we are “Back” or “Returned” in our glory by wearing a costume. Wearing fringes and ribbon on a t-shirt is like wearinh a costume. Real Authentic Yashar’al (Israelites) would wear the Proper Apparel. Embrace your culture and wear culture clothes. Stop mocking our Glorious Apparel given to us by Yah by making fringes and ribbon unto NON ISRAELITE APPAREL.
THE STYLES OF KINGS & QUEENS SHOULD ALSO BE MADE USING QUALITY FABRIC
Our style is suppose to be the style of Kings, Queens, Priests, Prophets, judges, elders etc…Tzitzit fringes and tekayleth ribbon should be on a true Hebrew Garment whose style is unique to our culture to Maintain the Glorious Apparel of our fashion.
This is a great time to remind those attempting to make Hebrew Garments to use quality fabric. I must express my distain and disgust for polyester. Polyester is wrong in many ways. It tries it’s hardest to mimic natural fabric, but it can’t be compared to it. People will typically use polyester because it’s cheap and affordable. You truly get what you pay for. If you can’t afford a garment made with natural fabric, you should wait and save until you can. Otherwise, you will be #1 breaking the law in Deuteronomy 22:11 Thou shalt not wear a garment of divers sorts,as of woollen and linen together.
Poly = More than One
Polyester is a mix. It’s in the name, but lets also Read the definition.
a synthetic resin in which the polymer units are linked by ester groups, used chiefly to make synthetic textile fibers.
- an artificial chemical substance which hardens irreversibly, usually a thermosetting plastic or one of the monomeric components thereof
a substance that has a molecular structure consisting chiefly or entirely of a large number of similar units bonded together, e.g., many synthetic organic materials used as plastics and resins.
When you wear polyester, you are basically wearing plastic. Plastic is great for a costume and those pretending, but to be authentic you have to wear real natural fabrics such as cotton, linen, wool or silk.
Do I need to add that polyester looks cheap? You Shine like a rainbow, but you hurt people’s eyes. You might be wearing ashiny gold polyester ribbon, but we all know it’s not gold, no matter how much it shines.
I have seen lots of creative garments. I am truly impressed by many imaginative garments, but some who make it are using polyester to keep costs down. The end result is a costume looking Apparel. Is that what you wanted?
I almosted died when I first heard this term. Israelites who wear extravagant garments trying to convey a grand appearance end up looking like a “superman” instead, lol.
I was personally offended by it, but then when I lookedat it through the insulting persons eyes, they were correct. When you use polyester, you end up with a cheap superman, unrealistic garment. Our ancestors never wore polyester and authentic Yashar’al (Israelites) should not wear costume (fake , pretending clothes).
TO THOSE WHO SEW…
Keep up the the good work and creativity, but don’t sacrifice our culture clothes to save money to the customer, unless you are actually making a costume for a parade or show etc…
Request natural 100% fibers. You are not pretending to follow Yah, right?
COST OF TEKAYLETH RIBBON WAS EXPENSIVE
After watching my YouTube video about takayleth ribbon and knowing it’s very high cost in the past and even today ($107), would you put it on a regular t-shirt? No.
Just like you would not decorate a nasty tasting cake, you should not place value Tzitzit Fringes and Tekayleth ribbon on a t-shirt. This is how I came to the realization about the significance of Tzitzit Fringes and Tekayleth ribbon on clothes. If Yah gave it to us as a Status Symbol, then it should also be worn on Hebrew Israelite Culture Clothes.
After my study about the true dye used for ribbon commanded in the scriptures. I desired it for my clothes. Realizing that it was too expensive to Place on every garment, I thought to save it for an outer Apparel which would get more use and less wear and tear. I distained the idea of putting Tekayleth ribbon on a cheap tshirt. It would also have the best of clothes and it would have the best Tzitzit Fringes. (At this time, I was actually selling t-shirts and polo shirts with ribbon due to popular demand for cheaper clothes with fringes.)
I immediately took down the t-shirts I sold.
I dont want to bring down the style that was intended as Royal Apparel / Hebrew Israelite Status Symbol and turn it into a costume.
This gave me more understanding concerning why Yah commanded us to use such an expensive dye for Numbers 15:37-40. If it was treated with such care as we wore it and we placed it on the best garment, then we who wore it would also represent ourselves as a torah keeper and a son or daughter of Yah.
Hebrew Garments is more than just fringes and ribbon on any garment. It’s true Hebrew Apparel which has fringes that are locked with violet (Tekayleth) ribbon.
