WORD FOCUS: CLOTHED WITH THE ROB OF RIGHTEOUSNESS
TEXT: LEV. 1:6 “And he shall flay the burnt offering, and cut it into his pieces. ..”
Do you know who first clothed man with the cloth of skin? It was God Almighty Himself, when he found Adam and eve hiding behind the bushes because they were afraid of Him. They had become fearful and conscious that they have sinned against God. In their sin-consciousness they realised that they were naked and that the glory of God which have been there covering was gone. So God killed an animal to cloth Adam and eve with coat of skin. (Gen.3:21) An animal had to die and its bloodied skin became their covering. This speaks of the blood of Jesus that covers you when he became your burnt offering. Similarly, the lamb of God did not just take away your sin. He also gives you his righteousness.
Beloved, you are covered by Jesus blood. You are righteous by his blood. God has clothed you with the robe of righteousness, which was paid for by Jesus blood. I am not talking about the physical robe made by cloth. I am talking about the robe of righteousness that was on Jesus when he said to the Storm, “PEACE BE STILL.!!” and there came a perfect calm (Matt.8:23-27) when healing flowed from him to the sick and when he raised Lazarus from the dead. (Jn.11:38-44)
When you believe you are righteous because of Jesus’ blood, you will see the effect of wearing the robe of righteousness which entails grace, miracle and favour etc. The righteousness of Jesus which you have put on attract all these blessings of God into your life.
Always, have the conscious of been clothed with Jesus robe of righteousness and not ours (Isa.64:6). Matt 5:10 says you are blessed if you are persecuted for righteousness sake. Here comes the manifestations of the blessing of healing, peace deliverance, protection and provisions that the robe attract.! Confess these scriptures in Isa.61:10 This is ur portion.
