Sound & Fruit
Category: Teaching Topics

A wise man hears one word and understands two. [Yiddish Proverb] 


"On its hem make pomegranates of blue, purple and crimson yarns all round the hem with bells of gold between them all around: a golden bell and a pomegranate, a golden bell and a pomegranate, all around the hem of the robe. Aaron shall wear it while officiating, so that the sound of it is heard when he comes into the Sanctuary before the LORD and when he goes out that he may not die." [Exodus (Shemot) 28. 33 - 35 Tanakh, Torah] 


Upon the hem of the seamless robe of blue were pomegranates and bells alternating.  The blue, purple and crimson which is blended in this fruit foretell of the bruising and crushing of the BLESSED SAVIOR, the ROCK OF OUR SALVATION.  The multi-seeds of the pomegranate (613 seeds, 613 commandments in the TORAH) signify fruitfulness. 


The gold bell has a tongue in it.  This tells of testimony, being gold, it is DIVINE testimony.  It rings clearly because there is a pomegranate, which acts as a pad, between each bell.  The softness prevented the bells from clanging together and producing discord.  The LORD Y’SHUA ha'MASHIACH wore the spiritual fruit and bells all around the hem of HIS seamless garment as HE walked upon the earth (the hem hangs near the earth).   Y’SHUA, the GALILEAN, had a clear ringing testimony which was backed up by the fruit of HIS life.   It should be the same with CHRIST-like-ones who wear the spiritual robe of blue.  It is not by our much speaking, our preaching, nor by the miracles performed in the NAME OF JESUS, or the GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT operating through our life that we are known.  Y’SHUA, the ANOINTED ONE said, "by their fruit you shall know them." [Matthew 7. 16, 20] 


NEW COVENANT priests are to wear the bell with the pomegranate, not one without the other, in order to bring a clear ringing testimony with the FRUIT OF DIVINE LOVE to the world.  1 Corinthians 12 & 14 are the "BELL" chapters, having the "TESTIMONY OF GOD'S POWER."  These two chapters surround 1 Corinthians 13, is the "Pomegranate or Fruit" chapter.  The GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT must operate with and by DIVINE LOVE.  Even though the NAME OF YESHUA is not mentioned in these chapters, HE is still there. . . HE is Love! 


Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
As we bid farewell to Shabbas, our prayer is that GOD, WHO separates the holy from the secular, forgive our sins, guide our life, fill our upcoming week with HIS DIVINE PRESENCE. May the GOD OF HOPE fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in HIM, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the HOLY SPIRIT. Have a wonderful week expecting great blessings from our Wonderful LORD GOD. Blessed are YOU, O GOD, our salvation and our help. Everything that lives shall give thanks to YOU forever and shall praise YOUR NAME in truth. YOUR NAME is ALL-GOOD, and unto WHOM it is becoming to give thanks and praise. Be sure to brighten others with encouragement and a joyful smile! Enjoy some of the sweetness of Sabbath throughout your week days!  Go with GOD.  


Praying for the peace of Jerusalem, is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes.  Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace which is the fruit of Righteousness.

What Each Area of the Site is Meant For: Blogs - This is your personal space. This is where you should post thoughts that are not intended for extensive further discussion. Observations from personal study and events that have occurred in your life belong here. Unless your post ends with questions or makes it apparent that discussion is to follow, it should probably be a blog. As discussed later, blogs are limited to those who hold to historic Christian beliefs. Forums - This is for open discussion relating to the topic posted. Dialogue is encouraged to stay on topic, so if a side conversation begins, open a new discussion. This is where the majority of the activity has taken place so far. Topics should remain general in nature, while in depth discussion on narrow topics should take place in groups. Groups - This is a place to congregate with people who have similar interests and positions in order to have open discussion. The conversation in here is not required to remain on topic, so it is more ready to follow rabbit trails. This is where you should go if you want to gather with a particular kind of theologian. Before initiating a new group, we ask that you consider posting a question in the discussion forum area to see if there is enough interest to justify a separate group. The reason we encourage such action is that, in the event that a group is inactive for 6 months or more, the moderators of Scriptural Studies reserve the right to close down and delete the group due to inactivity. Events - This is available to anyone that wants to post an event that you think the members of Scriptural Studies may be interested in. Contact Denis, Rabbi Del, Rifkah, or Marti for more details on advertising. Our Attitude of conduct: In case you missed them on your way in, take some time to become acquainted with the conduct we expect on this site. You may find our Attidudes on the main forum page. Our purpose at Scripural Studies is that the conversations move in a Gracious way. We define Gracious in the following way: 1) Not closed minded 2) Not self-promoting 3) Not characterized by mass amounts of cut-and-paste proof-texting 4) Not characterized by mass amounts of cut-and-paste from other places 5) Irenic 6) Not slanderous 7) No spamming 8) Perpetual venting bitterness 9) Not confusing or disruptive But in all things you'll be welcome here
