The Robe of Righteousness
The Wedding Dresses for The Bride
A Robe of Jesus' Righteousness
"I delight greatly in the Lord;
my soul rejoices in my God.
For he has clothed me with garments of salvation
and arrayed me in a robe of his righteousness,
as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest,
and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels."
(Isaiah 61:10 NIV)
What Is The Robe of Righteousness?
The robe of righteousness is by your faith that you are covered by Jesus’s blood. You are righteous by His blood. God has clothed you with the robe of righteousness, which was paid for by Jesus’ blood. Jackets are clothes worn by priests for the celebration of the Mass and are used in the Church. A wedding dress is worn by the bride in the wedding party. But the robe of righteousness is clothed every Christian must be wear in heaven when we meet God face to face, who are invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb. The Bible says, "Then the angel said to me, Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb! And he added These are the true words of God." (Revelation 19:9)
God gave a lesson about the robe of righteousness for me by a vision last week that I have come to meet God in a wedding party. The night I met with God, I was facing God without any wedding clothes. I suddenly heard a voice for me: “let wear the clothes of wedding dress and come here with Me”. I replied: Lord I did not wear any dress, I just come with my faith in Jesus, could I come to the wed party? God was pointing to my right site, I saw an unknown person he stands on my right site. I did not know he is male or female.Then, he pointed to me in front of me and said: “Wear it then come to the wed party of The Lamp, everything is ready for you”. I looked in front of my face, and I saw two robes hanging on the hook, it is very straight with beautiful gold color.
My heart was confused, worry, because why are two wedding dresses hang on the hook for me. I don't understand, what is on your mind? My article explains to you, the Church on earth today is "betrothed" to Christ, and, like the wise virgins in the parable, every believer should be awake and waiting for the appearance of the groom. The second stage represents the rise of the Church when Christ came to confirm His bride and take the bride home to the Father. Then is the wedding party that takes place after that and also the last step. It is my view that the Lamb wedding feast takes place in heaven amid the rising and the second coming of Jesus Christ.
Wedding Clothes Righteousness of Myself
“But when the king came in to see the guests, he noticed a man there who was not wearing wedding clothes. 12 He asked, ‘How did you get in here without wedding clothes, friend?’ The man was speechless.
(Matthew 22:11-12 NIV)
What is A Robe of His Righteousness?
I saw two wedding dresses available to me, I did not understand and I told to Him "why have I had two dresses?". Spirit God answered me: "That is figurative meaning about You need to wear a robe of His Righteousness is Jesus took our sin and died to satisfy the righteousness of God in heaven on our behalf. Sin is to pay and the wages of sin is death. Only Christ can pay the full price. All of God's nature must be harmonious to bring salvation to mankind. The loving nature of God can not be forgiven until the righteousness of His nature has been satisfied. At the cross, all the qualities of God are met satisfactorily. And second is the robe of righteousness by yourself."
The wedding is described as a worship full of singing. A crowd in heaven praises God for His victory (19: 1-3). Then twenty-four elders and four creatures symbolized those who were redeemed through all ages - in harmony with the choir. The Caliphate was repeated. Finally, they all formed into a large choir of countless people praising God, resounding with thunder, like a flood.
The wedding feast of the Lamb is prepared for all the people of the Lord. Jesus also repeatedly spoke about the wedding (Matthew 22:1-14, 25:1-10; Mark 2:19, Luke 14:15-24) with the focus on the bridegroom. Here the focus is on the bride, the church, the jewel of the righteousness. The Church is composed of all faithful believers of all time. The bride's dress is the righteousness of the saints. These righteous actions are not the good things the faithful have done to be credited, but rather the reflection of our saving work of Christ (7:9,14). Looking at the wedding feast of the Lamb we will attend will certainly bring us joy and will inspire us to prepare for the great day that God has given us by His wonderful grace. With the robe of righteousness, the fruits and effects of His love and many favours to the church, in which sense righteousness is taken, we should see the righteousness of God in fulfilling all His promises. Or that righteousness of Christ imputed to us, which we are said to put on, (Romans 13:14) or those graces imparted to us, and acted in a holy life..
Do Good By Faith is Wedding Clothes Righteousness of Myself
What is The Wedding Clothes Righteousness of Myself?
I did cry God again: " What is a second wedding dress Lord?", and Spirit God answered me:" Anything that you worked for Me by your faith that is your robe of righteousness. Let wear it, because it is done for you. I have done on the cross"
In church, Christians often think of James's teaching that people are justified by Paul's work and teaching that people are justified by faith (Gal. 2:16). Opposing, but not the case. What is James saying is that we are saved by faith, but that faith must be lived through the work (14-19). Since Abraham and Rehab show their faith through their actions and are approved by God, we must be like them. Paul says the same in his letters. The good fruit that is in the life of a believer is listed in Galatians 5: 22-23. Soon after he told us about salvation through faith, not by doing worked (2: 8-9).
Also, Paul said we are saved to do good works (2:10). Paul expects a transformed life as well as James: "If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old things have passed away, and all things are new "(2 Corinthians 5:17). Paul and James have no disagreement in their teaching about salvation. They come to the same topic from different perspectives. Paul simply emphasized the justification of faith by the fact that James placed emphasis on the fact that faith in Christ would produce good works.This is because the relationship between faith and work is like the relationship between the flesh and the soul, they can not be separated.
His Wife Has Made Robe of Righteousness Ready
And I heard, as it were, the voice of a great multitude, as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty thunderings, saying, “Alleluia! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns! Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready.” And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.
(Revelation 19:6-9 NIV)
Share The Good News by Faith
Has God Had Given Us Two Robes of Righteousness?
God has prepared for us two robes of righteousness. We just take it by faith in the righteousness of God and by our services in Christ Jesus. That is the amazing grace of God, it is not by our efforts. we remember the Bible says: For He has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of His righteousness. And in Revelation 19:7-8 says, "Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready.Fine linen, bright and clean, was given her to wear." God has given us two robes of righteousness not by our efforts.
An illustration of how faith without work looks like in everyday life. The phrase itself, go for peace, warm it up and satiate it as a wish and hypocritical prayer for caring for the poor, but it is actually an evasion, help people are hard It does not matter in such a prayer. What James is saying is that we are saved by faith but we have to work in our faith, we know the story of the Ra-japan believes stories of God's saving work on the Jewish people (Josh 2: 8-11). Even though she herself was in danger, she kept the Jewish detectives away from her own people and put down a rope for them to escape (Joshua 2:15). Thus, she became a model of faith in her work. When you believe that you are righteous because of Jesus’ blood, you will see the effects of wearing His robe of righteousness. It is not your own righteousness, but the righteousness of Jesus which you have put on, that is attracting all these blessings of God into your life.
We could not do anything ourselves if God does not give us gifts. Paul say that I can do all this through him who gives me strength (Philippians 4:13).Righteousness by work is God's gift of help, Righteousness by faith is through the blood of Jesus. We could pray: Lord, give us the faith as Abraham, who gave his son to him, and give us the faith as Rah-ab, also give us the faith of Paul, Peter, and disciples of God that we can follow Jesus and serve You.
