THE CHRISTIAN'S GARMENTS

"Let us rejoice and be glad and give the glory to Him, for the marriage of the Lamb has come and His bride has made herself ready.”  It was given to her to clothe herself in fine linen, bright and clean; for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints."  
Revelation 19:7-8


Consider the following Scriptures that exhort us both men and women about how we should clothe ourselves in order to honor and glorify our God and enter the gates of heaven:   

  1. Righteousness:  "Stand firm therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness."   Ephesians 6:14
  2. Strength and dignity:  Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she smiles at the future."  Proverbs 31:25
  3. Strength and beautiful garments:  "Awake, awake, clothe yourself in your strength, O Zion; clothe yourself in your beautiful garments... "  Isaiah 52:1-6
  4. The armor of light:  "The night is almost gone, and the day is near. Therefore let us lay aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light."  Romans 13:12
  5. Our Lord Jesus Christ and Savior:  "But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh in regard to its lusts."   Romans 13:14.  "For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ."  Galatians 3:27
  6. The new man, the man of true righteousness that leads to holiness:  "and put on the new self, which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth."  Ephesians 4:24
  7. The whole armor of God:  "Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil."   Ephesians 6:11
  8. The new self which is being renewed in the knowledge and image of God:  "and have put on the new self who is being renewed to a true knowledge according to the image of the One who created him."  Colossians 3:10
  9. We must put on compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, lonsuffering, forbearance and forgiveness:  "So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience;  bearing with one another, and forgiving each other, whoever has a complaint against anyone; just as the Lord forgave you, so also should you."  Colossians 3:12-13
  10. Love:  "Beyond all these things put on love, which is the perfect bond of unity."  Colossians 3:14
  11. The helmet of salvation and the breastplate of faith and love:  "But since we are of the day, let us be sober, having put on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet, the hope of salvation."  I Thessalonians 5:8

With all these exhortations to us as women and men who profess godliness, let us clothe our souls the WAY that our Lord has demanded of us.  There is  no other WAY!  This is the only WAY we are going to be able to see Him and enter the gates of heaven forever.  "Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter by the gates into the city."  Revelation 22:14

May the LORD help us  to clothe ourselves with white garments so that the shame of  our nakedness may not be uncovered.

"I advise you to buy from Me gold refined by fire so that you may become rich, and white garments so that you may clothe yourself, and that the shame of your nakedness will not be revealed; and eye salve to anoint your eyes so that you may see. Those whom I love, I reprove and discipline; therefore be zealous and repent."  Revelation 3:18-19
