Mattingly! Cut those *#$%^ sideburns!

There is an old episode of the Simpsons, where Mr. Burns hires Pro baseball players to play on his company team. He’s the boss, so he told Don Mattingly to ‘get a haircut!’ He cut his sideburns obediently. He trimmed them nicely. Then the boss still told him, “Mattingly!!! I thought I told you to cut those sideburns!!!” Mattingly, walks away and we see then he shaves the entire sides of his head. Mr. Burns still gets mad.

In Leviticus, GOD Almighty tells His priests,

1) Don’t cut the hair at the sides of your head,
2) Don’t cut off the ends of your beard,

To which, we now see Hasidic Jews walking around all funny looking, but the symbol and example of to the letter obedience.

My point, is although I am a priest in training, I cut my hair like Mr. T. Just now. How does this make me feel? It is just as Mr. T said, it is when you are on the warpath, you cut your hair all ugly like that. And what does the beard symbolize in Jewish thought? – afterall Christianity has its root in Judaism – the beard is how blessings flow from God on High down to lower realms including earth. So visibly a priest of God Almighty would have smooth, nice looking hair and the beard, IF you can grow it. That’s a big if, because many Asians cannot grow full beards. That’s just a genetic trait. Does that mean almost an entire race of people cannot be priests? Maybe, but mostly likely that is not it.

The point I’m getting to it, is priest have to BE a certain way. They are not warriors, and they are not to be ‘hoarders’? They are to be conduits or channels of GOD’s blessing to EVERYONE and EVERYTHING.

I’m reluctant to end this post, cut this short, but it’s Saturday here, and I’m going to try to wind down,

Love,

  1. The woman of Rev 12 is the prophet like unto Moses and Elijah Matt 17:3, Acts 3:21-23, Luke 1:17 delivering the true word John 1:1 from the wilderness to prepare a people for the Lord’s return. God our Father will not put any child of his into a hell fire no matter what their sins. It never entered the heart or mind of God to ever do such a thing Jer 7:31, Jer 19:5. A gift is now delivered to the whole world as a witness Matt 24:14. http://minigoodtale.wordpress.com

  2. Hi Mrs. Good Tale, thank you very much for commenting! Welcome to the site! I’ve visited your site and bookmarked it. I really like how you talk about a return to observing the festivals of YHWH, since He/She*2 are the One True God.
