Clean Garments (Clothes matter)

Now, in line with the article on Moses Laws. Lets continue. So, we thought we would spur people on to change the current fashion trends, and make them more Biblical. Pants and shirts of mixed types of fabric are not the way and is not how we as His People should be dressed. Sure the winters are less cold when having tight-fitted fabrics around one's limbs, but at least we can bring back the one fabric material. Perhaps even the blanket? Fashion is fashion, but lets stop mixing the fabrics and refuse to put mixed clothing on our bodies. If you read your Scriptures clothing plays a major role in human beings interaction with each other and SoNiNi. Our outward attire symbolises inward realities, and wearing clean garments as they are mentioned in the Bible - has a spiritual significance.


We can find these mentions of clothing, they start in Genesis 3,7:

7 Then the eyes of both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made loincloths for themselves.

...and onwards throughout the whole of the Bible to Revelation 22,14:

14 Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they will have the right to the tree of life and may enter the city by the gates.

Although the last one is of a more Spiritual nature, we think starting on earth will reflect into the Spiritual realm. Now if we read Deuteronomy 22,9-11:

"9 You shall not sow your vineyard with a second kind of seed, or the whole yield will have to be forfeited, both the crop that you have sown and the yield of the vineyard itself. 10 You shall not plow with an ox and a donkey yoked together. 11 You shall not wear clothes made of wool and linen woven together. 12 You shall make tassels on the four corners of the cloak with which you cover yourself."

We find the large commandment of not mixing what was meant to stay separate, two different seeds, two kinds of animals, and two kinds of yarn. Any of these are not meant to be mixed. The Commands can be found in greater detail in Deuteronomy 22,9-23,18, which include a large segment of what happens when a man violates a virgin, general marriage laws, and adultery.


Now for this post, we are sticking to clothing, and there may be some obvious practical reasons for the commands to keep things separate. The command to not mix of seeds is a familiar one when thinking of Christ's parable about the wheat and the tears (Matthew 13,24-30). We find the enemy that plants another type of seed (which could be characterized as a weed) in the field that now has wheat and weeds. Now the only way to spare the wheat is to wait until the harvest is ready, and one can thresh and separate. Any farmer would not mix the seeds unless he wanted some kind of permaculture experiment. You want one pure or at the very least a product.


If we look a the other part of Deuteronomy, it talks about not plowing your fields with an ox and a donkey, also emphasised in Leviticus 19,19. This one, for a farmer, is easy to know from experience. These two will not plow together, if they do, the ox will be much stronger and the donkey as we know is slower and very stubborn. Might just stop up on you, refusing to even move an inch. Not a good pair, and they will not work well together. An ox is an animal that is considered clean, donkey is unclean. Is also a factor in this comparison. Don't mix clean and unclean. Perhaps it is all about that fact. Separate clean and unclean. Believers and non-believers.


So, now here we have another perfect example of The Law being both Spiritual and very practical. If you do not find the practical reason for observing something, the Spiritual purpose may be as clear as day. So another thing here is, as with the donkey and the ox, they don't work well together, the same is true with believers and unbelievers. They will not pull the same, and one is clean whereas the other is unclean.


Let's quote some Scriptures on this matter (2. Corinthians 6,14-15):

14 Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness? 15 What harmony is there between Christ and Belial? Or what does a believer have in common with an unbeliever? 16 What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As SoNiNi has said:
“I will live with them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they will be my people.”
17 Therefore,
“Come out from them and be separate, says SoNiNi. Touch no unclean thing, and I will receive you.”
18 And, “I will be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters, says SoNini naNiNi.”

That being said as a good foundation, let's look deeper into this. Now clothes are mentioned in several other places in our Scriptures and we will go through most of them. But first let's for the sake of interest look into the notion of mixing fabrics and why when you do that, you weaken the material and perhaps even yourself. People are passionate about clothing these days, and sin has run rampant as a consequence of it. Some people now can only wear things with active symbols on them (mixed with all kinds of chemicals, fabrics even animal AND human hormones). Yes, the things people don't know about their clothing, where they come from. Is quite the rabbit hole and gets very dark.


One of the ways we as different people can combat this, is to use fabrics that hold higher frequencies, such as organic and dye-free linen (flaxseed) and cotton. All of them 100% of course, remember no mixing. They will help you vibrate at a much higher level. What we mean by this, try to get some 100% linen flaxseed underwear, and sleep in it. Record your dreams the next morning, in the spiritual (in your sleep) you will understand.


Linen is a natural fabric made from fibers stemming from the plant we call flax. This material is known for its durability but also its ability to breathe (great for countries of warmer climates). Now if you read some of the research by a doctor called Heidi Yellen, she lays out the different frequencies of these fabrics, and what is healing and what is not. Now as for the science around it, it's interesting but not sure it would hold much water if you use it as a foundation to make your sound arguments. We would rather stand on Scripture.


Still, her research is interesting when it comes to the study of frequency. Linen holds around 5000mHz, which resonates within the range of what the researcher calls vibrational energy. If measured like this, we can find that linen clothing is superior to many other popular cloth materials.


Now organic cotton is another fabric that will give good numbers on the vibrational scale. Now conventional cotton is at this point full of chemicals and even pesticides that will harm skin, organic is (should be) without these potentially very harmful substances. Organic cotton ranges around 110 mHz. Now the researcher showed that a healthy human body had a signature frequency of 100 mHz.


Now the ones readily available today, such as polyester have around 10 mHz. A diseased person measures around 15mHz. This should turn some heads, every time you wear polyester (poly stands for multiple or more) you resonate at the same frequency as a diseased person. If you take wool and linen they have very high frequencies that resonate (vibrate at), however, if you wear them together they cancel each other out. But if you wear one garment, not polyester, and say organic flaxseed (expensive) you will reap the benefits. Positive and long-lasting energy. Try it.


Now if you go through your wardrobe, we bet you will even struggle to find one garment that is one fabric. There will be plenty of polyester and nylon, that actually may block your flow of natural energy. We are almost gonna get into CHI energy here and go totally New Age, but those who understand such simple things as skin and blood flow will understand how easily bad fabrics will affect your body and your, for lack of a better word, Psyche. As the Greeks called it. We call it the soul, and how it stands in front of SoNiNi.


So all these modern studies are nice to lean on, and kinda of a confirmation of what Scripture has been trying to teach us since the very beginning. We find the first mentions of clothes in the Garden of Eden. We see that Adam and Even sinned and their eyes were opened (Genesis 3,6-7):

"6 So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate; and she also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate. 7 Then the eyes of both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made loincloths for themselves."

Now this is an interesting piece of Scripture, very basic things, but runs very deep. They saw they were naked, and were ashamed, and they were propelled to venture into the fashion scene and made the very first sets of clothes. So from the leaves of fig trees (which can get very large), they wanted to cover their bodies. These leaves (clothes) became from the very beginning, the symbol for us human beings to cover up our shame. Then they heard the sound of SoNiNi in the garden. And we know what comes next, curses and a great loss. Things had changed just like that and in a heartbeat, man went from innocence to sin, and the great fall of man was done.


We see that after the dialogue we strongly suggest you read, we see that SoNiNi made clothes for them from animal skins. Now these animals presumably SoNiNi had to put them down, which is a stretch to think, but likely. Bet He did it in a way that the animal would be in full agreement. And then we see that SoNiNi already had started to atone for our sins, by our inability to atone for what was done. You see, there is already an imbalance in place. A debt. The fact that an animal had to give its flesh (presumably blood spilled) in order to cover them could be a foreshadowing of the later sacrifice needed and done by Christ.


That being said, what should we wear and what does the Bible have to say, since the fall of man and the original fig leaves? Now throughout human history clothes and their style have become an indicator of a person's wealth, status, and gender. Now in our Bibles, we see examples of clothing used to tell different things about the person. Keeping the attire of the Zulu woman on the left in mind, you must understand that there used to be Royal robes for kings to separate them from the common people. There would also be special robes for the Priest, as we shall read more about (II Chronicles 18,9; Esther 6,8 & 1 Kings 22,30 gives some examples). Furthermore, we can find mentions of sackcloth and ashes, where people wore some uncomfortable and rough pieces of clothing sacks (perhaps used to hold foods or something like a potato sack), which were worn during times of grief and the inner pain felt at the loss of a loved one (Joel 1,8), or to show your sorrow and repentance (Jonah 3,5), or other (Joel 1,13 & II Kings 19,1).


Even Prostitutes had their own particular way of dressing (as they also do these days), we can see this in Genesis 38,13-15:

13 When Tamar was told, "Your father-in-law is going up to Timnah to shear his sheep," 14 she put off her widow's garments, put on a veil, wrapped herself up, and sat down at the entrance to Enaim, which is on the Road to Timnah. She saw that Shelah was grown up, yet she had not been given to him in marriage. 15 When Judah saw her, he thought her to be a prostitute, for she had covered her face."

So we see that the covering of the face was the sign of the prostitute. Furthermore, we see that leather belts were a sign of poverty and asceticism, men like Elijah and John both wore leather belts (II Kings 1,8 & Mark 1,6). We can furthermore read that men and women were commanded by Mosaic Law to wear only clothing appropriate to the one gender. Which is in stark contrast to this day and age. Wearing clothes of the opposite sex is open rebellion to SoNiNis word (Deuteronomy 22,5):

"5 A Woman shall not wear a man's apparel, nor shall a man put on a woman's garment; for whoever does such things is abhorrent to SoNiNi naNiNi."

This means today's apparel (many of them) are in direct violation of one of SoNiNis commands, to keep things separate. Avoid confusion. Moving on to simpler things, we know the deep symbolism of white robes, is reflected in many places in the Bible. Having a white robe symbolizes purity. When Immanuel was transfigured he became white as the light (Matthew 17,2):

"2 And he was transfigured before them, and his face shone like the sun, and his clothes became dazzling white."

We see here that the Robe or garment of Christ became as white as the Light. Furthermore, in various prophetic visions, we see that Immanuel is seen wearing white (Daniel 7,9 ; Mark 9,2). If we go to Revelation (to chapters like 3,18 ; 4,4 ; 6,11 ; 7,9), we see that Immanuel's attire FOR those who had been found worthy to rule with Him in the Eternal Kingdom, had white robes or clothing. And when Angels decide to visit, if they want to make an impression, we often see them wearing white robes (Matthew 28,3 ; John 20,12).


Now clothing is one of the basic things in life, according to Timothy 6,8, and well just common sense.


However, we know the verses that Immanuel taught us, to first seek His Kingdom, and not to worry about the clothes to wear (Matthew 6,28-34):

28 And why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they neither toil nor spin, 29 yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not clothed like one of these. 30 But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31 Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear?’ 32 For it is the Gentiles who strive for all these things; and indeed your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33 But strive first for the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
34 “So do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring worries of its own. Today’s trouble is enough for today.

Now this is talking about something else than your literal clothes, it's the spiritual clothing that SoNiNi covers you in as we are naked remember? Our Spiritual nakedness is not to be taken as literal nakedness. Now if we expand on 1 Timothy we find encouragement towards modest clothing (1 Timothy 2,8-10):

"8 I desire, then that in every place the men should pray, lifting up holy hands without anger or argument; 9 also that the women should dress themselves modestly and decently in suitable clothing, not with their hair braided, or with gold, pearls, or expensive clothes, 10 but with good works, as is proper for women who profess reverence for SoNiNi."

So today... Go to the shopping mall, what do you find... How many DIFFERENT types of clothing stores are there? It's madness when you look into this. A whole industry built around the bodies of small and big, young and old, there is something for all of these and endless designs and very varied quality. Some are there to cause you to sin more, others not so much. The trick is to pray to SoNiNi and Hw will show you what to wear and where to get it.


To sum up this article, think that clothing has been and still is a major part of human history. And, seemingly it did start as a response to the original sin no? Clothing is essentially a good and godly thing, and we need it to keep us warm, and for the protection of our frail bodies, if we can combine that with modesty, it has the potential to be a very good and healing thing.


SoNiNi pronounced a judgment on those that uncover the nakedness of other people in an improper way. There are many examples of that in Scripture, although what kind of nakedness is SoNiNi referring to here? (Exodus 20,26 & Leviticus 18,6 and in Isaiah 47,3):

" 3 Your nakedness shall be uncovered, and your shame shall be seen. I will take vengeance, and I will spare no one. 4 Our Redeemer - SoNiNi naNiNi is his name - is the Holy One of Israel. 5 "

Now throughout the Bible nakedness is almost in every instance associated with sexual shame and or sin. So this My People, is an open door for sure. And one that's not easily closed because mostly women, enjoy clothes especially the more exciting clothing coming out of the West. So be careful brothers and sisters. Choose wisely when it comes to clothes, but perhaps don't make a big deal out of it. But our earthly and spiritual robes are certainly significant, the eternal robes more so than our earthly robes, we will conclude that they both matter. Spiritual and physical. But are they not the same people?


Next article we are looking further into clothing and particularly what the Priests of Ancient Israel would be wearing in their worship. We can read that on their breastplate were 12 sacred stones. We believe these healing stones would easily be found in the Southern African areas, so therefore most of these sacred stones explained by historians today, we think are very much up for revision and serious debate.


Folks the next article is a doozy and has taken a long time to complete. Some of the sacred stones as worn by the priests we are pretty certain of, others well they will need some more research. But we will get there. Together. We recommend getting some of these Stones into your house and or on your person. Healing qualities are manifold.
