Thought FOR TODAY


A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
Fear is the father of courage, the grandfather of humility, and the
patriarch of prayer.

TENT MAKER
"Speak to the Israelite people and instruct them to make for themselves
fringes on the corners of their garments throughout the ages; let them
attach a cord of blue to the fringe at each corner. That shall be your
fringe; look at it and recall all the commandments of the LORD and
observe them, so that you do not follow your heart and eyes in your
lustful urge. Thus you shall be reminded to observe all MY commandments
and to be holy to your GOD." [Numbers (B'Midvar) 15. 38 - 40 Tanakh,
Torah]

Jewish men use the Tallith (prayer shawl) to wrap themselves in during
their daily prayers and devotions. This is known as their "tent of
prayer." The Tallith and the fringe in each of its four corners is
artistically made. The fringe itself has a purpose in every strand,
wrapping, and knot. It is made by using eight strands precisely wrapped
plus the five knots at various positions to total 613, which is the
exact number of commandments in the TORAH. The LORD GOD instructed the
Israelite men to LOOK at the fringe (Hebrew: tsitzith) and REMEMBER
(perform, obey, do, carry out) His commandments.

In HIS instructions, OMNIPOTENT GOD also required the children of Israel
to "put a cord of blue" in the fringe. This blue cord entwined in the
tsitzith (fringe, tassels, hem) is the heavenly colour to remind them of
the power and glory of the great GOD OF ISRAEL.

Paul was a tent maker working the same trade as Aquila and his wife
Priscilla. [Acts 18. 2 - 3] The occupation of a "tent maker" is that of
making of the "Tallith" or "prayer shawls." In Paul's time, people
lived in houses, not tents. The Bedouins, however, did live in tents,
but they made their own from the animals hides of their own flocks.
"Simon the Tanner, whose house was by the sea" was a familiar
individual, and he did work with hides, leather and furs. [Acts 10. 6]

Paul tells of his credentials: Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock
of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, was a Hebrew of the Hebrews
[Philippians 3. 4]; and was schooled concerning the Law, "at the feet of
Gamaliel taught according to the strictness of our fathers' Law, and was
zealous toward God." [Acts 22. 3] Paul added that he spent his youth
in Jerusalem, where he lived, "according to the strictest sect of our
religion I lived a Pharisee." [Acts 26. 4 - 5] Thus, Paul had fully
absorbed all knowledge of the Law, the customs and manners of the Jewish
people' thus, he would have legitimate expertise and knowledge for the
making of this very special item. The makings of the "tallith" was a
specifically gifted talent, as Jewish men were required to wear this
particular garment by the Almighty ONE HIMSELF.

Regarding the Tallith - MESSIAH YESHUA rebuked the religious leaders
for "enlarging the borders of their prayer garments (Tallith/Prayer
Shawl) to be seen of men." [Matthew 23. 5] "Woe to you, scribes and
Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs which indeed
appear beautiful outwardly, but inside are full of dead men's bones and
all uncleanness. Even so you also outwardly appear righteous to men, but
inside you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness." [Matthew 23. 27 - 28]

In fact, CHRISTians today even have reminders to LOOK at and REMEMBER
GOD'S commandments (plaques, jewelry of crosses, paintings, etc.). Man
looks on the outward appearance and judges, but that is not where true
righteousness is found. The HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL, on the other hand, sees
the attitude of the heart and that is what determines the approval or
disapproval of the LORD and the individual's final reward! For the
KING OF GLORY is our RIGHTEOUSNESS. Therefore, guard your heart and
glorify CREATOR GOD by living a life as one who overcomes by the "blood
of the LAMB" and by the "word of your testimony." [Revelation 12. 11]
May the WORD OF GOD be bound in your hearts and the CONTROLLER of your
lives!

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
The LORD'S promise to HIS people: "As you behold, you will glow; your
heart will throb and thrill – for the abundance of the sea shall be
turned to you and the riches of nations shall flow to you. Whereas you
have been forsaken, rejected and hated, with none passing through, I
will make you a pride everlasting, a joy for age after age."
[Isaiah/Yeshayah 60. 5, 15 Tanakh, Nevi'im]


Praying for the peace of Jerusalem is praying for the return of Messiah
Jesus and His Kingdom.
