Our moral clothing is in disarray. So He offers a gift. Not a lime-colored jacket but a robe.
A seamless robe. Not a garment pulled out of a cloakroom but a robe worn by His Son, Jesus. Scripture says little about the clothes Jesus wore.

We know what His cousin John the Baptist wore. We know what the religious leaders wore. But the clothing of Christ is nondescript: neither so humble as to touch hearts nor so glamorous as to turn heads.
I Will Give You My Robe
They divided His clothes among the four of them. They also took His robe, but it was seamless, woven in one piece from the top. Jewish tradition called for a mother to make such a robe and present it to her son as a departure gift when he left home. Had Mary done this for Jesus? But we do know the tunic was without seam, woven from top to bottom. Why is this significant?

Scripture often describes our behavior as the clothes we wear. He was like His robe: uninterrupted perfection. Listen to His words:.
The Son can do nothing on His own, but only what He sees the Father doing; for whatever the Father does, the Son does likewise. I can do nothing on my own. As I hear, I judge. All one piece. All a picture of the character of Jesus. But when Christ was nailed to the cross, He took off His robe of seamless perfection and assumed a different wardrobe, the wardrobe of indignity.
The indignity of nakedness. Stripped before His own mother and loved ones. Shamed before His family. The indignity of failure. For a few pain-filled hours, the religious leaders were the victors, and Christ appeared the loser. Shamed before His accusers.
The Robe of Christ
He Himself bore our sins in His body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness. I can remember my father explaining to me the reason a group of men on the side of the road wore striped clothing. You want to know what stuck with me about these men? They never looked up. They never made eye contact. Were they ashamed? Probably so. What they felt on the side of the road was what our Savior felt on the cross — disgrace.
Every aspect of the crucifixion was intended not only to hurt the victim but to shame him. Death on a cross was usually reserved for the most vile offenders: slaves, murderers, assassins, and the like. The condemned person was marched through the city streets, shouldering his crossbar and wearing a placard about his neck that named his crime. At the execution site he was stripped and mocked.
Since He bore the sin of the murderer and adulterer, He felt the shame of the murderer and adulterer.
Though He never lied, He bore the disgrace of a liar. Though He never cheated, He felt the embarrassment of a cheater. Since He bore the sin of the world, He felt the collective shame of the world. While on the cross, Jesus felt the indignity and disgrace of a criminal. No, He was not guilty. There are many who profess Him with their mouths, but in their works they deny Him. Titus They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate. Christian; the God Who created us wants a sincere relationship with us.
He wants more than just a religious acknowledgement of His existence.

Ain't That Good News
It will be a serious Day when we stand before the Lord. Finally, the White Robe is a call to those who are not yet Christians to surrender their lives to Jesus, so they, too, can be clothed in White at His coming. Those who are not clothed, and who think they can make it some other way than through the shed Blood of Jesus Christ are sorely mistaken Matt , John Home Contact About.
The people who were given the laws, the children of Israel could not keep them — will you keep them? Then come to Christ the end of the law the start of grace — a walk with the Holy Spirit. But these are not the things that distinguish a righteous person and unrighteous person. A person can dress like a saint but lack the fruits of the Holy Spirit thus be unrighteous though dressing like righteous.
Jesus Christ will not cloth you with the robe of righteousness and not baptizes you with the Holy Spirit. People baptized with the Holy Spirit manifest clearly the fruits of the Holy Spirit and these are the righteous otherwise not. People who do not understand and are ignorant of Jesus Christ robe of righteousness create their own righteousness. There own righteousness is attained by keeping laws, tithing, in dressing, offering and sacrifices, attending church every Sunday, etc. See the 2 types of righteousness. Self righteousness is the righteousness by the law and works also referred to as Pharisees scribes righteousness.
Self righteousness comes from human beings doing works to be accounted as righteous or accounting themselves as righteous because of the works they have done. These are people creating their own righteousness ignorant of Jesus Christ righteousness. There righteousness is attained by dressing, what they eat, tithe, offerings and sacrifices, attending a building called church every Sunday, etc not by faith — faith takes a back seat.
They seem to be in Jesus Christ but in reality they are in religion ignorant of Jesus Christ grace and faith in Him. Self righteous people will open to you Bible Law books and show how you are unrighteous yet themselves are unable to keep same laws they want you to keep.
