The Tzitzit, God's Idea For A WWJD
By David L. Martin
How To Make A Tzitzit
 
So Yahuwah's idea for a WWJD is to have tassels with a blue thread in them, on our garments.  They're called Tzitzit. 

Did you know that Yeshua wore these?  I've never seen it translated in popular translations, but it's right there in the New Testament.

“And when the men of that place had knowledge of him, they sent out into all that country round about, and brought unto him all that were diseased; And besought him that they might only touch the hem (Greek word “kraspedon”)of his garment: and as many as touched were made perfectly whole.”
Mat 14:35-36 KJV
Strong defines the Greek word “kraspedon” this way,

"Of uncertain derivation; a margin, that is, (specifically) a fringe or tassel:-  border, hem."

Kind of amazing isn't it?  Could these “fringes or tassels” be Yeshua's Tzitzit?  Yeshua was without sin, meaning that He followed Yahuwah's Laws flawlessly.  So our Jewish Messiah would have certainly wore the Tzitzit.  But here's a question, why were the people wanting to touch His Tzitzit for healing?  The answer could be found here in the Old Testament,

“But unto you that fear My Name (Yahuwah) shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in His wings (kanaph); and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.”
Mal 4:2 KJV

The Hebrew word translated as “wings” is the same Hebrew word used here in Num 15:38

“Speak unto the children of Israel, and bid them that they make them fringes in the borders (kanaph) of their garments throughout their generations, and that they put upon the fringe of the borders a ribband of blue:”
Num 15:38 KJV

So it appears that the people knew that there was going to be healing in the borders of the Messiah's garment, and what's on the borders of His garments?  His Tzitzit!  This is not to say that the Tzitzit are magical or have their own source of power, but that Yahuwah foretold that one of the ways the Messiah would heal would be through His Tzizit.  Perhaps this is why the people were so eager to touch His Tzitzit.

After I discovered Yahuwah's Tzitzit, I became excited about wearing them.  I wear mine on the belt loops of my jeans, and I think they look kind of cool myself.  Anyway, that shouldn't be the reason we wear them, the purpose is to remind us to follow Yahuwah's commands.  This is a God ordained reminder for us, and a outward sign to those around us that we follow the one true God of Israel.
Do you wear something that reminds you to be like Yeshua (Jesus)?  Maybe you wear a cross or a fish, or maybe you wear a shirt that has Scripture written on it.  Did you know that Yahuwah has His own WWJD?  That's right, Yahuwah has something we can wear that reminds us to keep His commands.  Let's look at Numbers 15:38-40

“Speak to the children of Israel: Tell them to make tassels (Tzitzit) on the corners of their garments throughout their generations, and to put a blue thread in the tassels of the corners.  And you shall have the tassel, that you may look upon it and remember all the commandments of the LORD (Yahuwah) and do them, and that you may not follow the harlotry to which your own heart and your own eyes are inclined, and that you may remember and do all My commandments, and be holy for your God.”
Num 15:38-39 NKJV
