And YHVH spoke unto Moses, saying, “Speak unto the children of Israel, and bid them that they make them fringes [Heb. tzitziyot] in the borders of their garments throughout their generations, and that they put upon the fringe of the borders a ribbon of blue. And it shall be unto you for a fringe, that you may look upon it, and remember all the commandments of YHVH, and do them; and that you seek not after your own heart and your own eyes, after which you use to go a whoring, that you may remember, and do all my commandments, and be set apart unto your Elohim. I am YHVH your Elohim, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, to be your Elohim: I am YHVH your Elohim.”

Numbers 15:37–41

The fringe is a very important piece of the garments in the old testament, It was to symbolize Yah’s commandments. It was a tassel, like the one’s we wear when we graduate, and it was bound unto our garment, which represents our flesh.

Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads.

Deuteronomy 6:8

These commands are placed upon us as a reminder of God, lest we forget and fall into sin. What God commanded in the old testament to do physically with tassels, we are commanded to do it spiritually with God’s law.

Bind them continually upon thine heart, and tie them about thy neck.

Proverbs 6:21

Normally we will associate someone being bonded by their hands, feet, and neck as slaves. We are not slaves but we are bound by God’s Law and commandments. If we are slaves, we are slaves unto God. He is the one who set us free from slavery to sin and made us bondman to the Gospel of Christ, bound by God’s law and commandments.

Tie them on your neck and write them upon the tablets of your heart.

Proverbs 7:3

Instead of it being a physical tassel that bound the commands unto us, it’s our love for God’s commandment that binds them unto us. When we were a slave unto sin, loving the flesh and following after the desires of the flesh, we had no bind unto God’s Law. Now we are slaves unto God, lose from the flesh we are bound by his law by our love unto him.

If you love Me, you will keep My commandments. 

John 14:15

We were called to keep God’s commandments and when we do, though we were bound to sin as a slave we are made free. Though we once had freedom of the flesh when we were slaves to it, we are now slaves unto God bound by his commandments.

For the one who was called in the Lord as a slave, is the Lord’s freed person; likewise the one who was called as free, is Christ’s slave.

1 Corinthians 7:22

Look at what Christ told Peter:

“I tell you the truth, when you were young, you were able to do as you liked; you dressed yourself and went wherever you wanted to go. But when you are old, you will stretch out your hands, and others will dress you and take you where you don’t want to go.”

John 21:18
