It was just a few weeks ago that my wife made her first set of tzitzit. They turned out great and she incorporated some beads and a couple different colors along with the blue thread running throughout. I started wearing mine a few months ago and I simply ordered them online.
So there are a few people I have encountered who follow the commandments who still don’t think tzitzit has a purpose in these modern times. The basic argument they tell me is that because of the holy spirit, we now have the law written on our hearts to remind us about the commandments and don’t need to wear tzitzit. Sorry if I offend, but this is a poor arguement. First of all, circumcision of the heart is NOT a NT concept.
“Circumcise your hearts, therefore, and do not be stiff-necked any longer.”
Tzitzit stands as an outward reminder to keep the commandments and it also stands as a sign to the world that we are set apart from their lust and adulterous ways. We know from accounts written in the Gospels that Yeshua also wore Tzitzit. So when 1 John 2:6 says,
“He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.”
then should we also not wear them as he did?
Personally, I’m not dressed unless I’m wearing mine. I tuck them in while at the office as I don’t want to offend anyone but people for the most part can still see them and have asked me about them.
Anyway, enjoy the video and visit Christie’s website
