The Tallit – Spiritual/Powerful Tools!

Few Spiritual Tools are as powerful as the Tallit.

The prayer Shawl or the Tallit is a biblical garment that is for believers, prayer intercessors and warriors, and can be used as a weapon against the enemy. Many in the modern Christian Church have stopped practising or acknowledging the use of the Tallit, and many no longer even speak about it.

But the Prayer Shawl is from the Bible, both the Old and New Testaments, and holds incredible power and relevance to Christians today. The revelation of the Tallit will help unlock revival for believers today, bringing new significance to prayer!

In response to Christians saying the prayer shawl doesn’t apply to us Christians today, we must understand the Jewish principles that remain true in Christianity.

First off we are ‘one new man’ in Yeshua. Next we are called to obey the Word of God at all times. The Torah is often translated to mean ‘the Law’, but in a more logical context, it is advice and guidelines for righteous and Godly living. ‘Law’ is a BAD translation of Torah.

We are told in Deuteronomy Chapter 6 to ‘diligently’ keep the commandments of the Lord your God and His exhortations and His statutes which He commanded you. Yeshua said that He had not come to destroy the Law but to fulfil it. Therefore the Law is active, not one minute detail will pass away until all things have been fulfilled.

So if we indeed attend a Messianic fellowship, (which you do if you go to Church) you strongly believe that you are to keep the commandments of God, and his commands are to use the tools he has made available to you to live more Godly, baptism, speaking in tongues, interpretations, Godly hospitality, and much more. We have an entire arsenal of gifts and weapons we can use against the enemy.

The Enemy is messing with us more than ever. In times where we feel like he may have the upper hand, we can only look to what God has given us to defend ourselves.

Matthew 6:6 says: But when you pray, go into your [most] private room, and, closing the door, pray to your Father, Who is in secret; and your Father, Who sees in secret, will reward you {in the open}.

When God’s word mentions the word ‘closet’ it is using a Jewish idiom. This was a phrase that signified being covered by the Tallit. Closets were quite rare in biblical times, except for the very wealthy, and many of the Jews certainly were not in that social category. Metaphorically the Tallit and the prayer closet are the same thing. A covering device that separates you from the world and shuts out the negativity. The power of the Tallit will shut out the mundane elements of this world, and elevate you to the Spirit of God. The Tallit will always remind you of the commandments, and his holiness.

The White on the prayer shawl represents the purity of God, and his heavenly domain. It is a promise and a reminder of the holy place we will someday occupy. The Blue colour represents the Holy Spirit, and it’s presence with us.

Returning to the book of Numbers.

At this time the Children of Israel had been in Egypt for 430 years, false idols and fake religions were thriving, and God had to show the Israelite’s who he was, and how to see him. God did not allow himself to be known by men for thousands of years before they could know his name. He then exposed his name through numerology and the design of the prayer shawl. The tzitzit is the numerological name for God.

If you feel called to use the Tallit, then surely Yeshua has allowed it. He wore one himself for most of his life, and it is a beautiful way to connect with our creator.
