AOG Black Necktie
Americans spend more than $1 billion each year to buy a staggering 100 million ties. That's roughly one tie for every male over the age of 20 in the United States.
The industrial revolution created a need for neckwear that was easy to put on, comfortable and would last an entire workday. The modern necktie, worn by millions of men today, was born. It was long, thin and easy to knot and it didn't come undone.
The English called it the "four in hand" because the knot resembled the reins of the rour hourse carriage used by the British upper class.
This tie was made for warriors belonging to the Army of God. As Paul states in Ephesians 6:12-13, "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand."
Paul then describes the individual pieces of armor in verses 14-17. "Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with the truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; and your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God." Finally in verse 18, Paul admonishes us to pray always.
