Clothed in “Heavenly Attire”
Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them. (Genesis 3:21 KJV)
For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven: If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked. (2 Corinthians 5:2-3 KJV)
Both of these verses, one from the Old Testament and the other from the New Testament talk about God covering His children.
Did you realize that God clothes His spiritual family in special garments made for Heaven? The drab and dirty natural clothing mankind has at birth are not fit for the eternal realm. Man must have a change of heart along with new spiritual attire.
The book of Genesis speaks of God clothing Adam and Eve in a coat of skins. In the New Testament book of Revelation, it has been recorded about a white garment or robe of righteousness. The animal skins were necessary because blood had to be shed for salvation. After Jesus Christ was sacrificed on the cross and shed His precious blood a white garment or robe of righteousness was made the “heavenly attire.”
