The Power of Linen

Nov 2, 2011 by     31 Comments    Posted under: Uncategorized

I once had a Christian critical of my following of the Torah tell me that the law instructed to Moses said we couldn’t wear cotton or polyester and therefore the Torah is ridiculous. Thus why Jesus freed us from that bondage. I quickly informed him that if he had a properly translated Bible and not one that was printed by liberal pointy nosed seminary professors that have never actually read the front of the book, then he would realize that the Torah doesn’t even mention cotton or polyester. The Torah mentioned specifically Linen and Wool and not to mix the two. Linen and wool both have distinct frequencies and science clearly tells us that when you put the two together, the frequencies cancel each other out. Hmm, its kinda like God is smarter than we are and already knew that and therefore knew what he was talking about when he instructed such in Lev. 19:19 and Deut. 22:11.

Linen has great properties and many people attest to its healing benefits. It is surely expensive but my wife has scored some wonderful finds at places like Goodwill for just a few bucks. You just have to keep your eyes open.

Here is a really good Linen write-up that I thought you might enjoy for today’s blog post.

“And it shall be, whenever they [the priests] enter the gates of the inner court, that they shall put on linen garments; no wool shall come upon them while they minister within the gates of the inner court or within the Temple. They shall have linen turbans on their heads and linen trousers on their bodies; they shall not clothe themselves with anything that causes sweat.” (Ezekiel 44:17-18)

The Most Amazing Facts About Linen
by Rodney Pere’rah

Linen is the strongest of all the vegetable fibers, with 2 to 3 times the strength of cotton. It is lint free and gets softer the more it is washed. It can gain up to 20% moisture without feeling damp. It resists dirt and stains and is strong and durable. When the Tutankhamen’s tomb was opened, the ancient linen curtains were found fully intact.

Flax is an annual of the plant family Linaceae. There are over 200 varieties of flax plants that, depending on the regional conditions and climate. Flax blooms in clusters of five petaled flowers that open up at dawn and close and fall at around noon when heat sets in. Each flower blooms for only a few hours. The various colors that flax are found in are blue, violet, scarlet and white flowers

  1. Researchers found that one will fall asleep faster, sleep deeper, and wake up in a better mood after sleeping in and on linen! Linen actually helps repair the body by harmonizing with the cells.
  2. No fabric can out perform linen in natural strength, luster and durability.
  3. Ancient healing secrets revealed in the Holy Scriptures instruct that this fabric is considered Holy attire and part of the sanctification path.
  4. Linen is an ideal fabric not only for attire; but for your table at every meal as a ‘high energy’ tablecloth and napkin.
  5. Flax fabric is an excellent filter protecting against chemical exposure, noise and dust.
  6. Linen clothing reduces solar gamma radiation by almost half thereby protecting humans wearing linen. It has been found that flax fibers retrieved from radioactive soils appear to be totally resistant to radiation.
  7. Linen is the strongest of the vegetable fiber’s, being 2 or 3 times stronger than cotton, with the added bonus of not shrinking or creating lint like cotton does! Linen fabric is highly durable and long-lasting.

Nobel prize winning Dr. Otto Heinrich Warburg identified signature frequency numbers of the average human at 70-90. All results with numbers less than 50 were identified as the signature frequency of chronic disease. Any number less than a 15 frequency was identified with those having been diagnosed with a life-threatening illness, such as cancer.

Atomic Frequency Signature of Linen

  1. The atomic frequency measurement of linen fabric measures 5,000!
  2. The frequency of wool measures 5,000
  3. The frequency of cotton measures 40 & organic unbleached cotton measures 100, which are not healing materials, but they don’t harm the health.
  4. Silk fabric only measures 10 units of energy, which would fail to support health in the human body.
  5. Rayon (wood & bamboo fiber) measures at a 15 signature frequency.
  6. Plastic materials such as polyester, acrylic, spandex, lycra, viscose and nylon measure zero.

If you want to maintain health & heal your body, it is recommended to wear wool or linen. Be aware of the Biblical warning of wearing wool and linen together, which scientific studies have proven to be accurate: the energy of these two fabrics worn together collapsed the electrical field.

Deut.22: [11] You shall not wear a garment of mixed sorts, as of wool and linen together.

While the two textiles both measure 5,000 signature frequencies individually, when put together, they cancelled each other out, and – in some cases – brought measurable weakness and even pain to sensitive persons.

Linen’s Health Benefits
When wearing 100% linen, many individuals have testified that their healing was rapid. Post injury or surgical pain was substantially reduced (without the use of prescription or over the counter drugs) when using linen bandages and wearing linen clothing.

Linen underwear heightens positive emotions as well as possessing rare bacteriological properties. Resistant to fungus and bacteria, flax is found to be an effective barrier to some diseases. According to Japanese researchers, studies have shown that bed-ridden patients do not develop bedsores where linen bed sheets are used. Wearing linen clothes helps to decrease some skin diseases – from common rash to chronic eczemas.

Linen is highly “hydroscopic” meaning it rapidly absorbs and gives up moisture. Adsorbing water as quickly as a pond surface, before giving a feeling of being wet, linen cloth can absorb as much as 20% of its dry weight. This explains why linen cloth always feels fresh and cool.

Linen does not cause allergic reactions and is helpful in treating a number of allergic disorders. Linen is effective in dealing with inflammatory conditions, reducing fever, and providing a healthy air exchange. Some neurological ailments benefit from the use of linen clothing.

Linen cloth does not accumulate static electricity – even a small addition of flax fibers (up to 10%) to a cloth is enough to eliminate the static electricity effect.

Harvesting the Linen

Harvesting the Linen

Linen possesses high air permeability and heat show the skin temperature 3°-4°C below that of their silk or cotton-wearing friends. According to some studies, a person wearing linen clothes perspires 1.5 times less than when dressed in cotton clothes and twice less than when dressed in viscose clothes. Meanwhile in cold weather linen is an ideal warmth-keeper.

Silica present in the flax fiber protects linen against rotting – the preserved mummies of Egyptian Pharaohs were wrapped in the finest linen cloth.

Linen rejects dirt and does not get a furry texture; linen and linen-containing articles are easily laundered in hot water, may be boiled and dried in the sun, besides they may be hot-ironed thereby ensuring maximum sterilization;

Linen provides a sensation of gentle, natural relief. Linen’s smooth surface and matte luster appears beautiful and feels pleasant to the touch. The more linen is washed, the softer and smoother it becomes.

Miscellaneous Benefits
Linen provides an excellent filter protection against noise, chemical exposure and dust. Sleeping on sheets of linen can also provide a better night’s sleep, absorb moisture, and is more durable than cotton bedding.

Flax thread appears to be the only natural material utilized for internal sutures in a surgical setting.

Symbology of Linen
The linen from which the clothing was made was symbolic of righteousness—and ascribed righteousness at that. Linen was made from flax, which grew up out of the ground—a picture of God’s miraculous provision. It is a fabric that “breathes”, making it not only comfortable to wear, but also an apt metaphor for receiving the Spirit of YHWH, since the Hebrew word for spirit, Ruach Ha’Kodesh, also means The Set-Apart Inspiration (of breath).

The corresponding opposite “fabric metaphor” would be wool, which symbolizes labor and sacrifice and not surprisingly, is said to make the wearer perspire and irritates the skin slightly. The comparison is spelled out plainly in Yahweh’s instructions for the priestly wardrobe in the Millennial Temple.

  • How can I tell what linen clothes are. Please tell me. Blessings

    • Well, first look at the tag. It should say 100% linen. Sometimes they blend it with cotton which can still be acceptable. But you do not want something that is only a little bit linen with the rest a synthetic fiber like polyester, nylon, acrylic, etc. You especially don’t want a blend of linen and wool!! I have seen garments with that combination.

      If your garment or fabric does not have a tag or label, there is an easy test that you can do. Once you have handled 100% linen, you were learn to be able to tell just by the look and feel of it. It is very distinctive. This is a link that tells how to do the water test. I have done this with success on fabric that I know is 100% linen and fabric that only looked like it. The water saturated the 100% linen right away, while the other fabric did not.

      • Also, when wearing other garments with linen, it is useful to be able to recognize the names of different fibers. Since we are instructed not to combine linen with wool, I wonder whether this means all types of animal fiber. Common other fibers from animals include: Cashmere · Mohair · Pashmina · Rabbit · Silk ·Merino (wool from a lamb), etc. I do not wear any animal fiber when I wear linen because I tend to think it is referring to all animal fiber. But I don’t know.

    • Wearing clothes with polyester and cotton is not what that scripture was mentioning, it spoke specifically of wool and linen, as of not to mix the two, the tags identify what material it is, linen clothes may be hard to find but look for 100% linen sheets, those cab be bought at Annas linens or something

  • Batya Wootten just sent a very similar article–if not the exact same one–in her newsletter a few weeks ago. She said she didn’t write it, she was simply sharing it, she said her husband had some wounds on his feet that hadn’t healed in a very long time, but once he started wearing linen socks, they healed. She was hooked after that. I don’t have a closet full of linen, but I definitely do enjoy the pieces that I have, and if the Father says it’s his favorite fabric, then it ought to be ours, too 😉 Thanks for sharing, Zach & Jaimie!

  • Fascinating article! I am now better informed about Linen than I was before reading this.

  • Fantastic article! Definitely more informed about linen now. Actually had someone ask me not too long ago about clothing and what I was wearing, if it was done on purpose. I was wearing cotton at the time. I had not really thought about it as most of my clothing is cotton but she went into the torah laws and what could and could not be worn. Now I can tell her about this article. She will love it!

  • This is a great article- very informative. I’m starting to wear more linen clothing and would like to start using linen bedding, socks, etc. Does anyone where to find linen items online at a reasonable price?

    • Hi Audrey Davis, you can find 100% flax linen boxer shorts at http://www.thecoolme.com. There is a discount of up to 51% and my husband and brother are enjoying their linen undergarments bought from that site. I realised the boxers dry overnight and have a smooth, crisp feel to them.

  • Would you please share the references regarding the scientific studies surrounding linen?

  • Are u a member of the High Priestly family of Israel? A blood member? It was for the High Priest and his sons only to wear linen while they were serving G-d in The Temple.

    You are wrong about wool..wool is a natural G-d given fleece that it does keep you cool in summer and warm in winter. It also breathes better than cotton….wool can provide many types of clothing as well as excellent insulation and it does not harbour pests or bed bugs either. I use only organic wool and organic plant based fabrics(never mixed with wool of course). In cold and frigid climates we use organic and natural wool and it is also water resistant. Our Creator gave us many resources for us to use as well as to take care of the land, plants and animals. We are gardeners and He provides all our needs..and it also depends on your climate…..

    • Freyja,

      Anyone can wear linen and anyone can wear wool. This commandment is simply to NOT MIX the two together. Science tells us why as stated in the article. I have wool garments and linen garments…I just don’t mix them together.

      The priest when in the temple were to wear linen. This doesn’t mean nobody else could wear linen. During the summer months, almost everyone wore linen as it was very breathable and light but the priest had specific instructions concerning linen when performing his duties.

  • Great post. Lovely, looks like I’ll line my lean loins with linen, no lyin’.

  • I would highly take issue with this phrase, however: “I quickly informed him that if he had a properly translated Bible and not one that was printed by liberal pointy nosed seminary professors that have never actually read the front of the book”. This is completely inaccurate and offensive to me, considering that my husband’s love of Hebrew is because of his very knowledgeable, highly esteemed seminary professor. My husband’s training in the Hebrew language far surpasses most any “Torah” teacher we’ve met, and it was the Hebrew language that spoke to us and opened our eyes up to the beauty and truth that lies within the front half of the book! The “liberal” seminaries actually require the students to learn and master both Hebrew and Greek…it is the evangelical “Bible” colleges that teach from the poorly translated English texts and focus on the NT and Jesus instead of the OT and the one true God. Get your facts straight!!

    • Your husbands seminary must be the exception rather than the rule. I have talked to seminary grads who wouldn’t know an Aleph-Tav from a Italian meatball. Sorry if I offended you. 🙂

  • Im guessing for a people wandering in the desert if would also be advisable to wear linen for its long lasting and protection factors.

  • I have been reading a lot about linen and wool. I am blessed by how this information has crossed my path.
    my question is this…what do you dress your bed with? I currently have a memory foam mattress, a cotton blend mattress pad, pure cotton sheets, feather pillows and duvet, and a linen/cotton duvet cover. I intend to invest in linen sheets. However, I am concerned about mixing linen with other elements. And I had also intended to replace pillows and duvet with wool, as wool is supposed to better then feathers for dust allergies. Which I suffer from greatly. Any thoughts on linen and wool being on the same bed? Would love to hear from others how they make the bed.

    • I have the same questions about bedding. Have a linen duvet but what about an insert and my pillow?


      • If you can’t find, linen pillow cases, I would buy linen from a fabric department or a fabric store and make my own.

  • What a fascinating article! I’m a merino sheep farmer in southern Australia and know about some of the amazing health benefits of fine wool – for keeping warm – and cool, for sleeping on from birth to old age, etc. If all this info is correct, then linen has the same properties! Just don’t mix them!

  • Great article, thanks for the info. I’ve purchased 100% linen sheets from Bedella.com which I am very pleased with. I shopped around and their prices couldn’t be beat. They have about 50 different color options also.

  • Do you have any sources to any of the claims?

  • Hey Zach! Michelle from United in Torah down in San Diego here!

    I’ve been investing in linen clothing, but would really like to get linen sheets. Miguel and I are going to purchase a 100% natural talalay latex mattress, similar to memory foam but without the yucky chemicals and flame retardants. Anyways, wool is a natural flame retardant so right beneath the bamboo zip cover is wool. You don’t actually touch it though. Never comes in contact with your skin. So if we were to do linen sheets, would that pose a problem? Miguel thinks it might. Or is the mixing of linen and wool for clothing only? We could do without the wool, but would have to have a dr write a letter stating we don’t want wool in our mattress. Some laws or something. I’m interested to know what you think? And I see that there was a similar question above! Take care!

  • Yes, please site source (s)

  • I found this especially interesting since the early pioneers were fond of Linsey-woolsey fabric…but were plagues by sickness. Likely this contributed to genral weakness especially to women wearing full dresses of it if they were sensitive.

  • Is it okay to wear leather and linen together?
    Or down jacket and linen?

    Thank you 🙂

  • I have been blessed to wear linen 24/7 now for a little over 4 months
    (July 10, 2015 – til the present. I use to wear natural fibers including
    Linen for some 23 years while I would still feel intense heat because
    Of menopause, but now since I changed over to all linen including PJ’s
    And night I have not had 1 hotflash. All Praises to the Most High. Also a friend
    Of mine had been having trouble trouble loosing weight for years. Now
    She is not even trying and she has lost 30lbs in Two months. Linen is amazing
    And it makes you feel very positive.

  • The frequency of linen is 5000 what? Wool is 5000 what? What is being measured? What was it measured with? Who is the researcher who performed the measurements?

  • I have a cottage business called Covered in Linen. I fell in love with linen about 6 years ago. I make linen kippot, snoods, tzitziyot among many other things. I sell many linen kippot. It feels so good on your head. Many tell me how wonderful it feels. Just wanted to share.

    Blessings and Shalom,

  • I’m thrilled to find this article. I have a few family members with, eczema, and crohns disease, and fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia, eczema and Crohn’s are all chronic diseases, I have the fibromyalgia. It is believed that now they have a test for, fibromyalgia.

  • I sure hope it doesn’t take 2 or 3 years for someone else to post here.

Got anything to say? Go ahead and leave a comment!
