He Wore Our Coat

“They have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.” – Revelation 7:14

God only has one requirement for entrance into heaven: that we be clothed in Christ. Listen to how Jesus describes the residents of heaven: “They will walk with me and wear white clothes, because they are worthy. (Rev. 3:4) Listen to the description of the elders: “Around the throne there were 24 elders and they were dressed in white and had golden crowns on their heads. (Rev 4:4)

All were dressed in white, The saints and the elders. How would you suppose Jesus is dressed. In white? “He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God.” (Rev. 19:13) Why is Christ’s robe not white? Why is his cloak not spotless? Why is his garment dipped in blood? Paul says it simply; “He changed places with us” (Gal 3:13) Jesus wore our coat of sin to the cross.
