The Priestly garments In the OT, a priest cannot function without a garment. If he would enter the inner sanctuary without the priestly garments he would die. In the OT, it was a physical garment. In the NT it’s a spiritual garment. But the pattern is the same. We look at the physical garment to understand the spiritual. There is a garment that you must wear to function in the beauty realm. These are the garments (Exodus 28): The priestly garments are for glory and beauty. A bride chooses her wedding garments differently than any other garments. She chooses her wedding garments with love and beauty in mind. The quality of the garments whether material or workmanship was the very best of its kind: fine linen, pure gold, precious stones, costly ointments, cunning workmanship. The colour of the garments: Gold- blue- purple-scarlet- fine linen. The priest in his garment of glory and beauty was adorned in harmony with the same colours as that of the heavenly tabernacle. Fine linen: speaks of the righteousness of the saints. But it is outworked righteousness speaking of the fruits of righteousness rather than imputed righteousness Pure gold: gold purified in the fires of trials and afflictions Precious stones (jewels): look at the names of these precious stones - Sardius Topaz Carbuncle (passionate praise- to seek diligently- dwelling/ abiding in his presence). Beryl onyx Jasper (to subdue and take dominion- to shine with the lustre of fire- to be white clear as crystal). The Ligure (double fruitfulness). The amethyst (a purple stone speaking of putting on royalty) Isaiah 61:10 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. The coat is a garment used for covering; the robe is worn as a symbol of office and authority. Only a king wears a robe. The longer the train of his robe, the more important the king: the train of the robe of the king of kings fills the temple (Isaiah 6:1). Psalm 45:8 the garments of the king is made of a composition of chief spices: Myrrh and aloes Cassia. These ointments speaks of meekness and humility. Humility is what God is like. His whole kingdom operates on the principle of humility. His dwelling place and the ministers of his temple are all clothed with humility. The colour blue abounded in the tabernacle and its ministry. Blue was in the inner veil, the outer veil the gates, the 10 linen curtains. Every piece of furniture was covered with a blue cloth when in transit. A blue lace fastened the holy crown to the head of the priest while a lace of blue secured the breastplate to the ephod. Blue was worked into both the ephod and the curious girdle while the robe was all of blue. The throne of Jesus is sapphire (deep blue), the same colour as the blue robe of the ephod (Ezekiel 24:10) Yes, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resists the proud, and gives grace to the humble. (1 Peter 5:5) Peter had in mind the blue robe of the high priest. The high priest was clothed with meekness and humility. Meekness and humility have to be pursued by ascending the mountain of Myrrh where myrrh and cassia are found in great abundance. (Song of Solomon 4:6) . Myrrh is a burial spice .it was also used to remove wrinkle. It speaks of suffering.
He comes in wrath, His garments dipped in blood Isa. 62, 63; Rev. 19 Isaiah Chapter 62:11-12 and 63:1-6 11 Behold, the LORD hath proclaimed unto the end of the world, Say ye to the daughter of Zion, Behold, thy salvation cometh; behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him. 12 And they shall call them, The holy people, The redeemed of the LORD: and thou shalt be called, Sought out, A city not forsaken. 1 Who is this that cometh from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah? this that is glorious in his apparel, travelling in the greatness of his strength? I that speak in righteousness, mighty to save. 2 Wherefore art thou red in thine apparel, and thy garments like him that treadeth in the winefat? 3 I have trodden the winepress alone; and of the people there was none with me: for I will tread them in mine anger, and trample them in my fury; and their blood shall be sprinkled upon my garments, and I will stain all my raiment. 4 For the day of vengeance is in mine heart, and the year of my redeemed is come. 5 And I looked, and there was none to help; and I wondered that there was none to uphold: therefore mine own arm brought salvation unto me; and my fury, it upheld me. 6 And I will tread down the people in mine anger, and make them drunk in my fury, and I will bring down their strength to the earth. Revelation 19:7-16 7 For the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.... 8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.... 11And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. 12His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. 13And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. 14And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. 15And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. 16And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS. 18 Jul 2019
