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…." Rev. 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" Rev. 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 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 simply, "He changed places with us" Gal. 3:13
He wore our coat of sin to the cross.
He Wore Our Coat
