They have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Revelations 7:14
God has only one requirement for entrance into heaven: that we be clothed in Christ. Listen to how Jesus describes the inhabitants of heaven: “They will walk with me and will wear white clothes, because they are worthy …” (Revelation 3:4)
Listen to the description of the elders: “Around the throne there were….twenty-four elders….They were dressed in white and had golden crowns on their heads …” (Revelations 4:4)
All are dressed in white. The saints. The elders … How would you suppose Jesus is dressed? In white? … ”He is dressed in a robe dripped in blood, and his name is the Word of God.” (Revelations 19:13).
Why is Christ’s robe not white? Why is his cloak not spotless? Why is his garment dripped in blood? Paul says simply, “He changed places with us.” (Galatians 3:13)….
He wore our coat of sin to the cross.
