The I should read Leviticus chapter 19 with understanding...
Verse 1-3 speaks..
"And the LORD GOD JAH RASTAFARI spake unto Moses, saying,
Speak unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say unto them, Ye shall be Holy: for I the LORD GOD JAH RASTAFARI your God am Holy.
Ye shall fear every man his mother, and his father, and keep my Sabbaths: I am the LORD HAILE SELASSIE I your God."
Verse 30: "Ye shall keep my sabbaths, and reverence my sanctuary: I am the LORD ADONI-I GOD JAH RASTAFARI"
Sealing Verse 38: "Therefore shall ye observe all my statutes, and all my judgments, and do them: I am the LORD."
The Nazarite Vow is much bigger than just a few verses from Numbers. And, I would like to add, aren't your face, in which the hair called beard grow, attached to the Head? I see the hair growning on the Head (from the neck and up) as being One and the same.
Therefore the Beard should be included in the Vow.
And the Dreadlock Nazarite, the Boboman, the Priest for I-ver after the order of Melchizedek, "R" spoken of in
Exodus chapter 19 verse 6 "And ye shall be unto me a Kingdom of Priests, and an Holy Nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.."
And in Leviticus chapter 21 verse 5-6 INI "R" told what not to do: "They shall not make baldness upon their head,
neither shall they shave off the corner of their beard, nor make any cuttings in their flesh.
They shall be Holy unto their God HAILE SELASSIE I, and not profane the name of their God: for the offerings of the LORD made by fire, and the bread of their God, they do offer: therefore they shall be Holy."
In the Letter of Jeremiah, A copy of an epistle, which Jeremy sent unto them which were to be led captives into Babylon by the king of the Babylonians, to certify them, as it was commanded him of God.
"Because of the sins which ye have committed before God, ye shall be led away captives into Babylon by Nabuchodonosor king of the Babylonians. So when ye be come unto Babylon, ye shall remain there many years, and for a long season, namely, seven generations: and after that I will bring you away peaceably from thence..."
FULL EPISTLE HERE
One of the wisdoms INI get from this Epistle is the understanding that having no beard (clean shaven) and no locks (baldhead) and nothing upon the head (no turban / tam) is SEEN by the MOST HIGH as something very negative, a state of wickedness..just look upon the catolic church of the battigan to see what I-man meditation "R".
"...For how can they be called gods? because women set meat before the gods of silver, gold, and wood.
And the priests sit in their temples, having their clothes rent, and their heads and beards shaven, and nothing upon their heads."
THE PROPHET WITH THE VISION SPEAKETH
JOHN MARCUS I SELASSIE I JAH RASTAFARI
Sighting that honourable I-Dread recommended a deeper look into Leviticus, I-man would like to clarify that the Livity of the Rastaman "R" futher I-splained there.
The 3rd Book of Moses called Leviticus chapter 20 verse 7
"Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I am the LORD your God."
The 1st Epistle General of Peter chapter 1 verse 15-16
"But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;
Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy."
