Our last lesson of week two in A Woman’s Heart:  God’s Dwelling Place by Beth Moore explains how God’s provision of long-lasting clothes for the Israelites as they traveled through the wilderness applies to our spiritual lives today.  God provided physical clothes for his people then.  He provides spiritual clothes for his people today – clothes that last.

Clothes:  God's Provision


In Deuteronomy 8:4 and 29:5, we learn that God’s provision for the Israelites included clothes and shoes that never wore out.  The Israelites had witnessed God’s provision and protection in the form of a cloud and a pillar of fire, food from Heaven (the bread of angels), meat, and now God gets even more personal by making sure the very clothes and shoes they were wearing never wore out.

Beth teaches us that God cares about the clothes we wear.  God often mentions the clothing of people throughout the Bible.  He also mentions heavenly clothing.  In Psalm 93, we read that the Lord is clothed in majesty and that He is girded with strength.
The Lord reigns, He is clothed with majesty; The Lord has clothed and girded Himself with strength;
Indeed, the world is firmly established, it will not be moved. – Psalm 93:1
 Psalm 104:1 tells us that He is clothed with splendor and majesty.
Bless the Lord, O my soul! O Lord my God, You are very great; You are clothed with splendor and majesty. – Psalm 104:1
In Revelation 19:13, we read that Christ is clothes with a robe dipped in blood.
He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. – Revelation 19:13 
 Hebrews 9:22 explains the meaning of Revelation 19:13.
And according to the Law, one may almost say, all things are cleansed with blood, and without shedding of blood there is no forgiveness. – Hebrews 9:22
Without the shedding of blood, there is no forgiveness.  Jesus was willing to wear the spiritual robe dipped in blood so that we would be forgiven.  Because Jesus wore a “blood stained robe,” we, if we receive His gift of salvation, will wear a robe of fine linen, a garment of salvation, which represents the righteousness of the saints.
