Torah & Tzitzits

Torah & Tzitzits

In many translations of the original scriptures it is mentioned that the 10 commandments were written on tablets of stone. Hence, it makes it sound as though two rough tablets of stone were used. Is this really the case?
Actually, the original 10 commandments were written on tablets of Sapphire. Hence the blue chords in the Tzitzits that remind us of Torah.

The scriptures explain the spiritual meaning of the color blue.

And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying, Speak to the children of Yisra’ěl, and you shall say to them to make tzitzit on the corners of their garments throughout their generations, and to put a blue cord in the tzitzit of the corners. And it shall be to you for a tzitzit, and you shall see it, and shall remember all the commands of יהוה and shall do them, and not search after your own heart and your own eyes after which you went whoring, so that you remember, and shall do all My commands, and be set-apart unto your Elohim. I am יהוה your Elohim, who brought you out of the land of Mitsrayim, to be your Elohim. I am יהוה your Elohim.

Numbers 15:37-41 TS2009
The scriptural message in Numbers 15 for the blue tassels or ribbands is intentional sinning:
But the being who does whatever defiantly, whether he is native or a stranger, he reviles יהוה, and that being shall be cut off from among his people. Because he has despised the word of יהוה, and has broken His command, that being shall certainly be cut off, his crookedness is upon him.

Numbers 15:30,31 TS2009
What is the significance of blue? It is known that the tablets of the Ten Commandments were cut from the clear blue sapphire seen on Mount Sinai. When Mosheh ascended Mount Sinai it was of sapphire stone:
And Mosheh went up, also Aharon, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Yisra’ěl, and they saw the Elohim of Yisra’ěl, and under His feet like a paved work of sapphire stone, and like the heavens for brightness.

Exodus 24:9,10 TS2009
There came a voice from above the expanse over their heads. Whenever they stood still, they let down their wings. Above the expanse over their heads was something like a throne, resembling a sapphire stone. Above the shape of the throne was a figure of human appearance. From what appeared as his waist upward, I saw a glowing metal, looking like a fire encased in a frame. From what was like his waist down, I saw the appearance of fire radiating around him. Like the appearance of the rainbow in the cloud on a rainy day, so was the appearance of the radiance. It was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of Adonai. I saw it, fell upon my face, and heard the voice of the One who was speaking.

Ezekiel 1:25-28 TS2009
The Ark of the Covenant in the most holy place of the sanctuary, the throne of Elohim’s presence (the Shekinah glory), contained the blue sapphire tablets of the Ten Commandments. Hence why the Ten Commandments are blue.
