"I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for He has clothed me with the garments of salvation, He has covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels." - Isaiah 61 V10
"He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels." - Revelation 3 V5
Sin separated us from our God and Jesus Christ came into the world in flesh and He died on the cross for our sins to bridge the gap. Christ rose from the grave on the third day thus giving us the hope of resurrection, so those who live and believe in Christ will never die. To them that believe, Christ offers a clean white robe made of His own righteousness so that we can stand in the presence of God as though we had never been defiled by sin. God offers His righteousness, which is pure and holy, and we will reflect His glory in His presence for all through eternity. Give thanks to God for His indescribable gift. Praise be to God!
"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
