THE PRIESTLY GARMENT
Priestly garments reflected the spiritual standing of the priests. In the same manner, Our dressing and outward appearance should reflect our spiritual calling . As children of God, we must not wear worldly dresses or appear shabby. The priestly garments were clothes to do service in the sanctuary. We learn from this that the robe for service in the house of God should defer from our everyday clothes. We see that those who are called by God are also clothed by Him. The priestly Garment had great spiritual significance for Believers in this dispensation of Grace. One . That those who must serve as priest in this dispensation of Grace must remove their personal garment of self-righteousness and put on the garment of righteousness that comes through faith in Christ for ‘all our self-righteousness are as filthy rags before God’ _Isaiah 64:6. Two. The Garment portrayed the uniqueness of the priesthood. they also distinguished the priest of God from the false prophets and idol priest of the other nations’ as believers our spiritual clothes should distinguish us from those who do not know the Lord. Three. The mitre of the High Priest bore the inscription: ‘HOLINESS UNTO THE LORD’ this was an indication that the priest were a separated and consecrated people unto God. Believers are to be separated and wholly yielded to Christ. Four. Wearing the priestly garment the priest went before the Lord to solicit for the congregation we as believers must also take the names of those who are in dire need of God’s mercy to God in Prayer. In present time believers do not need to dress in special Priestly garment because the aspects of Christ’s ministry which the Levitical priest hood typifies have been fulfilled.
