On-Fringes

John 4:24 “YAHUAH is that RUACH (Spirit): and they that worship him must worship him in ruach and in truth.”

2 Timothy 2:15 “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman who needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
So, the question is should we wear fringes on our garment? Let see what the Bible says.

Numbers 15:35 (NIV)

“Speak to the Israelites and say to them: ‘Throughout the generations to come you are to make tassels on the corners of your garments, with a blue cord on each tassel.

Reading the verse above is a command from YAHUAH for the children of Israel to wear fringes or also refer to as tassel. I already know the next question coming is YAH was talking to the children of Israel, not Gentiles or anyone who is not Israelite. Well, I’m glad you ask. Let see what Numbers 15:15-16 says to answer your question.

Numbers 15:15-16 (NIV)

15 The community is to have the same rules for you and for the foreigner residing among you; this is a lasting ordinance for the generations to come. You and the foreigner shall be the same before YAHUAH: 16 The same laws and regulations will apply both to you and to the foreigner residing among you.’”

The verses above answer the question about non-Israelites as well as Israelites. As you know foreigner or as it always refers to the strangers among you. The foreigner is talking about is anyone or other nations who cleave or living among the people of Israel must follow the same Laws and commandments. So, to go back to the question should you wear fringes or tassels on your garments or clothes, yes. This command is for everyone whether you are Israelite or not and it’s a command that should be kept forever.

I’m sure your next question is what is the purpose of wearing fringes?

Numbers 15:39 (NIV)

39 You will have these tassels to look at and so you will remember all the commands of YAHUAH, that you may obey them and not prostitute yourselves by chasing after the lusts of your own hearts and eyes.

Ecclesiastes 12:13-14 New International Version (NIV)

13 Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear YAH and keep his commandments, for this is the duty of all mankind. 14 For YAHUAH will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil.

Shalem!
