The Least Commandments The Least Commandments

In this section we will deal with laws that pertain to the outer man and woman. Matthew 5:19 “Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great inthe kingdom of heaven.” To teach people to break the least commandments means you won’t inherit the kingdom because that is what the scribes and Pharisees did. Matthew 5:20 “For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed therighteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.” When you compare the laws “Thou shalt not commit adultery” with “paying tithes” Christ taught us that the law of “not committing adultery” is weightier than the law of tithing spices but he said the law of tithing spices (Isaiah 28:25,Deut. 14:22)to the Levites still had to be kept. Matthew 23:23 “Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cumin (spices) and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.” Head covering 1Corinthians 11:4“Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonoureth his head. Verse 5 “But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven. Verse 6 “For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered. Verse 7 “For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man.” Men are to have their heads uncovered when praying or teaching the scriptures and vice versa, women are to have their heads covered when praying or teaching the scriptures. Dress modest Proverbs 7:10“And behold there met him a woman with the attire of an harlot, and subtil of heart.” When a prostitute repents her heart/mind must change according to Christ by keeping the commandments and quit naturally the way she dresses must change. 1 Timothy 2:9 “In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel,..”

Cross dressing Deuteronomy 22:5 “The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abominations unto the Lord thy God.” The Levitical priests wore Exodus 28:42 “And thou shalt make them linen breeches to cover their nakedness; from the loins even unto the thighs they shall reach:” Israelite men also wore Daniel 3:21 “Then these men were bound in their coats, their hosen, and their hats, and their other garments, and were cast into the midst of the burning fiery furnace.” Both Breeches and Hosen were pants worn by men that covered down to the lower part of the thigh. Scripturally we can prove that men wore what we call pants by today’s definition. We can not justify women wearing pants according to the scriptures as many do today. 1Corinthians 6:9 “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, ” The effeminate spirit also pertains to cross dressing. Note: Queen Esther had to wear unlawful Persian clothing which she despised and when alone did not put on the Persian diadem; read Esther 14:16 in the Apocrypha. Likewise today, women in this predicament are to inquire about there job’s dress code requirements and ask if religious accommodations can be made. Today a new fashion trend is developing, women’s skirts for men. Society today glorifies cross dressing as the new fashion but the Most High condemns it. Fringes The Lord gave Israel a dress code which set them apart from the other nations. Along the borders of our shirts, skirts or dresses we are to put fringes with a border of blue. Numbers 15:37 “And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, Verse 38 Speak unto the children of Israel, and bid them that they make them fringes in the borders of their garments throughout their generations, and that they put upon the fringe of the borders a ribband of blue: Verse 39 And it shall be unto you for a fringe, that ye may look upon it, and remember all the commandments of the Lord, and do them; and that ye seek not after your own heart and your own eyes, after which ye use to go awhoring: Verse 40 That ye may remember, and do all my commandments, and be holy unto your God.” Read “The Hem of his garment” Man’s head and Facial hair Some jobs and professions today require men not to have facial hair yet will excuse you based on medical or religious reasons. Leviticus 19:27 “Ye shall not round the corners of your heads, neither shalt thou mar the corners of thy beard.” To round and mar simply means to make bald by shaving off. Here are two precepts to show a better understanding: Leviticus 21:5 “They shall not make baldness upon their head, neither shall they shave off the corner of their beard,..” Isaiah 15:2 “He is gone up to Bajith, and to Dibon, the high places,to weep: Moab shall howl over Nebo, and over Medeba: on all their heads shall be baldness, and every beard cut off.”

The following precept also proves Israelite men had to be well groomed. 2 Samuel 19:24 “ And Mephibosheth the son of Saul came down to meet the king, and had neither dressed his feet, nor trimmed his beard, nor washed his clothes, from the day the king departed until the day he came again in peace.” Tattoos The Most High commands us Not to get tattoos. You can be forgiven for those you already have but once you repent you are not to get any more because you are obedient to the commandment: Leviticus 19:28 “Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the Lord.” Drinking Wine Psalms 104:15 “And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine, and bread which strengtheneth man’s heart.” Ecclesiates 10:19 “A feast is made for laughter, and wine maketh merry: but money answereth all things.” Proverbs 20:1 “Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise.” To be deceived by wine or strong drink is explained in; Proverbs 23:30 “They that tarry long at the wine; they that go to seek mixed wine. Verse 31 “Look not thou upon the wine when it is red, when it giveth his colour in the cup, when it moveth itself aright.” Verse 32 “At the last it biteth like a serpent, and stingeth like an adder.” Verse 33 “Thine eyes shall behold strange women, and thine heart shall utter perverse things.” SHALOM
