His+ Gift to Us…

A ROBE+ of Righteousness

 

Glory to GOD in the Highest!

And on earth, peace,

goodwill towards men !

Luke 2:14

GOD loveth mankind!  HE gave us HIS SON+ Who+ gave us the GIFT of Life.

THOU+ hast ascended on High,

THOU+ hast led captivity captive:

THOU+ hast received gifts for men;

yea, for the rebellious also,

that the

LORD GOD might dwell among them.

Psalm 68:18

 Our LORD JESUS CHRIST robed Himself+ in our human flesh … so that we might be robed in His+ Divine Righteousness.

And to Her

( the Bride of the LAMB+ )

was granted

that she should be arrayed

in fine linen,

clean and white:

for the fine linen is

the righteousness of saints.

Revelation 19:8

 Regardless of the date of the Incarnation of CHRIST JESUS in human flesh… HE+ DID COME … at the fulness of time, at the Time so Appointed by The FATHER,  for which we all give thanks ! 

But  when

the fulness of the time was come,

GOD sent forth His SON+,

made of a woman,

made under the Law,

 

To Redeem them

that were under the Law,

that we might receive

the adoption of sons.

Galatians 4:4 – 5

The LORD JESUS had much WORK to take upon Himself+ when HE+ came. Furthermore, this DIVINE work could only be accomplished by His+ coming in the flesh as the SECOND ADAM+ .

 Thus, HE+ came.

 But made Himself+ of no reputation,

and took upon HIM+ the form of a servant,

and was made in the likeness of men:

 And being found in fashion as a man,

HE+ humbled Himself+,

and

became obedient unto death,

even the death of the Cross.

Philippians 2:7-8

   Because that is what HE+ did when HE+ came here, we  can now be robed in white linen, pure and clean … pure and clean as a newborn babe in all its innocency.

 Because HE+ came, we who seriously follow JESUS   become un-stained from sin.  We are made New Creatures in CHRIST.

 JESUS saith unto him,

 I+ am

the way,

the truth, and the life:

 no man

cometh unto THE FATHER,

but by ME+.

 John 14:6

 Our FATHER sees the Prodigal from afar, returning to HIM … through CHRIST JESUS.

 And he arose, and came to his father.

 But when he was yet a great way off,

his father saw him,

 and had compassion, and ran,

and fell on his neck, and kissed him.

 For this my son was dead,

and is alive again;

he was lost,

and is found.

 And they began to be merry.

~ from Luke 15

 We too are arrayed in the “Best Robe” of the Prodigal , that special Robe handed to us by our Gladsome FATHER. The great JOY that occurs in Heaven when we repent will over-flow into our own hearts here on earth !

  I+ say unto you,

that likewise joy shall be in Heaven

over one sinner that repenteth,

more than over ninety and nine just persons,

which need no repentance.

Luke 15:7

 Because The LORD JESUS  condescended to be born in the flesh, we can be born from Above, Anew, Again.

 Because

HE+ came down,

we can go UP !

 Even more, we do NOT have to wait until we die to have companionship with the LORD. That companionship is ours NOW… because HE+ came as EMMANUEL, GOD with us.

I will greatly rejoice in The LORD!

My soul shall be joyful in my GOD;

For HE hath clothed me

with the garments of Salvation.

HE has covered me

with the robe of

righteousness,

 as a bridegroom decketh himself

with ornaments,

and as a bride adorneth herself

with her jewels.

Isaiah 61:10  

Glory to GOD in the Highest!

And on earth, peace,

goodwill towards men!

Luke 2:14
