In the Jewish marriage, during the wedding, the bridegroom’s garment is crucial. It’s needed for the marriage to be complete. The orthodox Jewish man will drape his prayer cloth (tallit) over his bride so she will be covered. They will both be covered and are both under the cover of the huppah, the wedding canopy; a similar principle, that the bride must be covered by the bridegroom’s garment. Now, Messiah is called the bridegroom. When He died, he was naked. Why? Where was His garment? He is the bridegroom, so His garment is that of the groom. Because He didn’t have His garment, it’s somewhere else. It’s on the bride. The garment of Messiah and the mantle of Messiah are covering us. Because He was naked, it means you are not anymore. It means you are covered with shalom and with the bridegroom’s righteousness and with His love. You are covered with the Bridegroom’s power, purity, beauty and glory. Rejoice in your Bridegroom because you are covered right now with the garment of your Beloved - the garment of the Bridegroom.
Mission: Before going out in the world today, dress up in God’s best. Put on His covering of love, power, beauty and don’t be ashamed.
Scripture: Is. 61:10
