We must never forget our brothers and sisters in Christ who are currently (as you are reading this article) in the midst of persecution. It’s grievous that we often allow ourselves to forget. In all our activities, uploads, social networking, buying/selling (as Believes in Christ), we must REMEMBER. I hate to reference Disney or a movie, but in the story of Peter Pan there was one thing that Neverland made everyone do. Neverland made you FORGET! Our world similar to Neverland is full of distractions that make it easy to forget what is most important, what is Eternal. We must FIGHT to remember and not remain in a state of distraction. Paul instructed his young son in the faith, “Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution” (2 Tim 3:12). Every true believer in Christ, who is living a godly life, will have some measure of persecution in there lives according to the scriptures.
Two distinct clothing brands (Purpose & Prafetic) that launched on two separate coasts (Portland/New Jersey) merged to create As Filthy Rags! So what about the name, what is it’s significance?
The concept for our name derives from the very familiar prophetic utterance of Isaiah, “But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousness are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away (Isa 64:6). Our brand name calls/demands us to recognize that everything we do as believers in Christ that is done apart from Christ, not done totally unto Him and done through His power is as valuable to Christ as filthy rags, or a mistral garment. Even if it is esteemed by men, complimented and exalted; in the eyes of our Savior, it’s simply a filthy rag. Only in Christ are we made clean, and our offerings pleasing unto God.
