TZITZIT: A SELF- REBUKE

Dr. Y’shua Yisrael

The prophesied redemption has dawned, the first rays of God-Consciousness have penetrated the darkness to reveal the imperative for holy attire! This article offers a cogent explanation of Tzitzit and their benefits. The sentence, “I put on righteousness and it clothed me” is a reference to tzitzit (Job 29:14). Wearing Tzitzit (self-rebuke) serves to elevates consciousness to a level of higher thought, proper speech, and right action. In this redemptive cycle, Hebrew Israelites must become Self-governed. It is prophesied in Jeremiah 31:33 “And they shall teach no more every man his neighbor and every man his brother, saying know the Lord; for they shall all know me from the least of them to the greatest of them, say the Lord for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will no longer remember their sins.” This corresponds to God-consciousness, which is an all-time awareness and synchronicity with the will of God. The psalmist, King David in # 16  writes” I have set Ha Shem before me always; Because he is at my right hand I shall not falter”. This sentence is a fundamental principle of the Torah and the quality of the righteous who walk before Ha Shem.
