WHY THE NAZARITE TRAINING?
We have a generation that is hungry for a cause that will match their unique DNA. They are waiting to be awakened to their full potential and to be released by spiritual fathers and mothers as catalysts of transformation in every sphere of society…
For such a time when we are witnessing how the love of many are growing cold, when people are becoming lovers of themselves more and more, when we are seeing a decay in the moral glue of society, and when there are so many distractions, keeping them from becoming all that God has purposed and destined them to be.
In the Old Testament, there were leaders who became God’s grace to the spiraling moral degradation of Israel at that time. They were called Nazarites, from the Hebrew word ‘nazir’ which means ‘consecrated or separated unto Jehovah’. They made a vow to not drink wine, not cut their hair, and not to touch any dead body.
To take these vows literally won’t have much significance today. But to see it as a vow to humility because of giving up their right to a common drink in their culture, a vow to hunger for God because the length of their hair represented the time they spent with the Lord, and a vow to holiness by not allowing for self-contamination gives the transformation that 2 Chronicles 7:14 talks about, so much more sense..
