Revelation 19:16 “HE was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and HIS NAME is called The WORD of GOD!
Wearing HIS WORD!
With papers in hand so are soldiers commissioned:
instructions for battle with acts to perform.
With tasks “checking off” as their list grows no shorter,
so does such assignments become part of Life.
Thus holding the pages of Scripture, so are we:
“Sent Out” as HIS witness!
In HIS armor — clothed!
Well knowing this struggle
shall soon fade to Victory
when CHRIST comes triumphant
to carry us home…
so joyous my soul rises up — most expectant as “Egypt” departs and Heaven draws near!
As HIServant justified only because of the robe of CHRIST’s righteousness,
Devotional: Isaiah 61:10 “I will rejoice greatly in the LORD, my soul will exult in my GOD; for HE has clothed me with garments of salvation…
HE has wrapped me with a robe of righteousness, as a bride- groom decks himself with a garland, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels!”
Rejoice, Beloved! HE is coming for us! And!
Don’t forget Matthew 22:12! “So he said to him, ‘Friend, how did you come in here without a wedding garment?’ And he was speechless.”
Without HIM wrapping us in HIS righteousness ALONE…there is no entry into Heaven!
So…submit! Throw down the clothing accessories of the Flesh. Cast off Pride, self sufficiency and your own works…and anything else that lifts itself up as if “assisting” our Sovereign KING!
CHRIST alone! Our Hope of Glory! HIS Grace and HIS robe…are sufficient for us!
Amen and amen!
