Should paisley be worn by Believers in CHRIST/the MESSIAH?

Below are excerpts from two sites that show information on the pagan origins of paisley. I have also read that it has roots as a fertility symbol too. I used to be an interior decorator and I can share with you that more textiles are being manufactured with patterns originating from various country’s heritages. What ELOHIM’S [Hebrew word for GOD and who I believe is FATHER/SON/HOLY SPIRIT] people today may not be thinking about clearly is that HE gave HIS Way to the Hebrew nation. That meant ALL other nation’s were pagan, worshiping other gods! ELOHIM/GOD is very clear in Scripture that HE is who HE is and the enemy is who the enemy is! Also, that HIS people are to be separated from every way and hold of the enemy!

It looks like many patterns originated from design motifs used in celebrating, offering thanks, and worshiping pagan gods. I have met Christians who told me they never liked paisley. I stay away from many patterns and images [second command Exodus/Sh’mot 20] and only wear solids or stripes or checks that are simple and do not draw attention. I do have some lace that I have wondered about and have prayed about.

Who is the bright and morning star of Revelation 22:16?

Revelation 22:16  “I, Jesus, have sent my angel to testify to you about these things for the churches. I am the root and the descendant of David, the bright morning star.”

Daniel [Dani’el] 12:3And those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the sky above; and those who turn many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever.

Based on examining what looks to be all verses concerning “morning stars”, I believe that it is mainly a special designation for a “bright” person who “shines” and “sparkles like a star” turning others to righteousness, and also is used for certain angels/messengers/hosts. I also believe that King David is the “bright and morning star” referred to in Revelation 22:16, not JESUS/YESHUA. Please examine the Scriptures below and the comments with them. Continue reading

What do the FATHER/ANCIENT OF DAYS, HIS SON/WORD/MESSIAH, and HIS SET-APART [HOLY] SPIRIT look like? – part 1

I believe there is a huge problem going on that has caused sin in peoples lives for centuries. It is because of our disobedience and wanting the wide way [which is the path of destruction] and the world [satan is now the prince of this world and he deceives the world] instead of the Narrow WAY [which is the path to life] and to obey our ELOHIM [the Hebrew word for GOD and who I believe is FATHER/SON/HOLY SPIRIT] – see Mattityahu [Matthew] 7:13-14, Luke 4:5-7, Yochanan [John] 12:31 and 14:30. You love your spouse, family, friends and you can describe, if not everything, probably many things about them because of how special they are to you. How much do you know about ELOHIM? For example, what do the FATHER, SON, and the HOLY [SET-APART/QADOSH] SPIRIT [BREATH/RUACH] look like? Continue reading

Handling halloween wisely – J. John Canon

This is a well written piece by a minister from the United Kingdom named J. John [Canon].  He is an excellent and thought provoking speaker. He does have a website and while I haven’t looked over most of it, I felt this piece below was appropriate to pass on considering halloween is coming up. I used to celebrate halloween, in fact, it was my favorite holiday, I loved it!  After reading what J. John wrote about how it dishonored ELOHIM [Hebrew word for GOD and who I believe is FATHER/SON/SPIRIT] and the further investigating I did on its roots, I decided to throw out all my halloween decorations and not celebrate it anymore because I wanted to show ELOHIM I loved HIM more than HIS enemy: death and darkness and evil and wickedness [witchcraft] and deceit and uncleanness and pagan ways, all of which halloween celebrates. There is nothing of Life, Light, Goodness, Truth, Cleanness, and ELOHIM’S Way involved at all in that celebration! Continue reading

Sing blessings, thanks, and praises!

Divrei-Hayamim Alef [Hebrew for 1Chronicles] 29:9-13,  “The people were filled with joy, because they had given willingly – wholeheartedly they had given willingly to Adonai [this is Hebrew for LORD, but “YHWH” should be used here]; and David the king too was completely filled with joy, as he blessed Adonai before the entire community: “Blessed be you, Adonai, the ELOHIM [Hebrew for GOD] of Isra’el our father, forever and ever. Yours, Adonai, is the greatness, the power, the glory, the victory and the majesty; for everything in heaven and on earth is yours. Continue reading
