Clothe yourself with My Wholeness
for all have sinned
and lack My Glory
Even your own glory
- untarnished humanity -
that I created you to wear originally
has been stained by your sin
Even your own glory
limited as it may be
has been turned to nothing but rags,
How much more, My Glory, do you now
I give you My Glory through My Son
He gives you new garments to wear
If only you will shed the stained rags you insist
As if they're a "right of passage"
or battle treasure.
They're just filthy rags
Not fit for you
Not fit for you to wear in My Presence
and yet you want me to make
My Home in you
I have washed you clean
Yet you still reek of your sin
Won't you please reach up your arms?
Let me wash you
Let me slip over your head My Beauty
My Garments of Glory
They are clean
beautiful to wear
They are beautiful to be seen in
They are Light
They are Garments of Praise and Splendour
Garments Fit to be worn in My Presence
Fit for a King
Fit to be worn by an heir to My Throne
Have you truly received me?
Then receive My Clothes
and be found in My Glory
Isaiah 61:10 (CEV)
I celebrate and shout because of my LORD God. His saving power and justice are the very clothes I wear. They are more beautiful than the jewelry worn by a bride or groom.
Isaiah 64:6 (NLT)
We are all infected and impure with sin. When we display our righteous deeds, they are nothing but filthy rags. Like autumn leaves, we wither and fall, and our sins sweep us away like the wind.
Isaiah 52:1 (NLT)
Wake up, wake up, O Zion! Clothe yourself with strength. Put on your beautiful clothes, O holy city of Jerusalem, for unclean and godless people will enter your gates no longer.
Revelation 19:7-8 (AMP)
Let us rejoice and shout for joy! Let us give Him glory and honor, for the marriage of the Lamb has come [at last] and His bride (the redeemed) has prepared herself.” She has been permitted to dress in fine linen, dazzling white and clean--for the fine linen signifies the righteous acts of the saints [the ethical conduct, personal integrity, moral courage, and godly character of believers].
