Doctrinal Belief #9, Dress and Decorum
extravagant dress and decorum is inappropriate for believers in Messiah
Yahoshua. I Tim. 2:9; I Pet. 3:1-4; Rev. 17:1,4; 12:1. In the day of
Yahweh's judgment, His people should not be adorned with gold, pearls and
costly array, which engender pride, but with modesty, simplicity and
righteousness. Lev. 16:2,4; Rev. 19:7,8; Isa. 3:13-26; Eze. 28:13,17; Rev.
14:7; Ex. 32:30 and 33:4,5.
life of Yahshua Messiah shows us that man should not seek to glorify
himself, but that he should sacrifice for the good of others.
Money spent for costly ornaments could better be spent in helping
to further the truth of Yahweh. Yahweh
has not forbidden the wearing of expensive ornaments, as several verses
show, Ex. 3:22; Eze. 16:11-14;
Prov. 25:12; Job 42:11
with 1:1. But when mankind is
in a time of judgement, it is not good to have any distractions that might
hinder one from fully doing the will of Yahweh.
The last day people are to proclaim a message that, "the hour
of Yahweh's judgement is come", Rev. 14:6,7.
In times of judgement, Yahweh has commanded His people to remove
their ornaments, Lev. 16:2,4; Ex.
32:30 with 33:4,5; Isa.
3:13-26. The counsel of the
Apostles Paul and Peter in I Tim. 2:9,10 and I Pet. 3:1-4, was given by
men who had a sense of urgency to proclaim the truth as quickly as
possible in the best ways.
should be as zealous today, to proclaim the truth, as the Apostles were in
A friend at last!
friend you need in times of need
you need is a friend indeed
where to find and how to know
those in need will tell you 'no'
friend of needs is ache in deed
where is one that has no need
one needs a need for friend
needs to have a hearty end
yourself a friend of all
let them know that they can call
tell you how they need you more
hear your hearty ocean's roar
they need is how you care
a brother, be one to share
they need is a friend to come
all you say is 'don't mention'

The law of
Numbers 15:37-41 we read,
Yahweh spake unto Moses, saying, 38Speak unto the children of
Israel, and bid them that they make them fringes(tsi-tsith,heb.) in the
borders of their garments throughout their generations, and that they put
upon the fringe(tsi-tsith) of the borders a thread of blue: 39And
it shall be unto you for a fringe, that ye may look upon it, and remember
all the commandments of Yahweh, and do them; and that ye seek not after
your own heart and your own eyes, after which ye use to go a whoring: 40That
ye may remember, and do all My commandments, and be holy unto your
Elohikim. 41I am Yahweh your Elohikim, which brought you out of
the land of Egypt, to be your Elohim: I am Yahweh your Elohikim."
Dt. 22:12 we read, "Thou
shalt make thee fringes upon the four quarters of thy vesture, wherewith
thou coverest thyself."
knows that man is forgetful and so He commanded us to put something on our
clothes to help us remember His commandments.
Upon the four corners of the garment that a person covers with,
Yahweh has commanded that a fringe with a thread of blue be placed.
The color blue is a symbol of Yahweh and
His Law,Ex.24:10; Eze.1:26;
10:1. No mention is made of
what color to make the fringes.
Messiah is our example(1 Pet. 2:21), and He wore the tsi-tsiths also.
Mk. 6:56 says, "56And wherever He went, into villages or cities or
farms, they laid the sick in the marketplaces, and begged Him that they
might touch even the fringe of His cloak; and all who touched it were
healed." The New Revised Standard Version, see also Mt. 9:20;
14:36; Lk. 8:44.
did the people know to touch the tsi-tsith for healing?
Mal. 4:2 says, "But unto you that fear My Name shall the Sun of righteousness
arise with healing on His wings;"
The Hebrew word for "wings" in this verse is the same
Hebrew word that is used in Num. 15:38 and Dt. 22:12 to tell where the
fringes are to be placed, so thus the people knew where the healing would

Yahshua's last prayer for His disciples He prayed for their unity with
each other, He said, "Neither
pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on Me
through their word; 21That they all may be one; as Thou,
Father, art in Me, and I in Thee, that they also may be one in Us: that
the world may believe that Thou hast sent Me. 22And the glory
which Thou gavest Me I have given Them; that they may be one, even as We
are One: 23I in them, and Thou in Me, that they may be made
perfect in one; and that the world may know that Thou hast sent Me, and
hast loved them, as Thou hast loved Me."
Apostle Paul said, "Be
completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in
love. 3 Make every
effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. 4
There is one body and one Spiritó just as you were called to one
hope when you were calledó 5
one Lord, one faith, one baptism; 6
one Eloah and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in
Dt. 12 Yahweh made it plain that it was not His perfect will that the
Israelites do worship in any place and in any way they chose.
For He told them "Take heed to thyself that thou
offer not thy burnt offerings in every place that thou seest: 14But
in the place which Yahweh shall choose in one of thy tribes, there thou
shalt offer thy burnt offerings, and there thou shalt do all that I
vss.13,14 Moses was careful to
add, "Take heed to thyself that
thou forsake not the Levite as long as thou livest upon the earth." vs.19
showed that it was not His will that each tribe of Ysrael set up their own
independent worship doing their own thing, independent of the rest of the
fellow tribes. The Scriptures
show that Yahweh wants His followers to be organized and supportive of
each other and see that the worship services are carried forward in
various places in a harmonious and right way.
Also, in Num. 18:26-28 we see that the teachers of the Torah that
received tithes of the people were then required to give a tithe of their
tithes to a higher body that was responsible for organizing the worship,
services and activities of the general body.
gave his Holy Spirit power to the early disciples only after they had come
into unity, Acts 2:1-4. Because
without unity their witness would be hindered.
It is my prayer that the general body of believers in Andhra
Pradesh and beyond will seek to come into harmony with Yahweh and their
fellow man so that we can have the unity that the early believers had, and
that Yahweh has ordained that we should have.
Only then will we be able to receive the fullness of Yahweh's Holy
Spirit power and fulfill the great commission that Yahshua Messiah has
given to us.

seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let
us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and
let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto
Yahshua the Author and Finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set
before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the
right hand of the throne of Eloah". Heb.
