I heard “Clothing Exchange” and I saw the Bride of Christ and sackcloth was being removed from her and she was wrapped in a beautiful pure white garment.
It was the Robe of Righteousness; the Garment of Salvation — and on her head was placed a beautiful crown of Glory and around her shoulders, a Mantle of Resurrection Power.
“Beloved. Be encouraged today. You have received salvation through the Blood of the Lamb. I have removed your old garments and you are now clothed with MY Garments.
It is a Divine exchange, My Child. I have clothed you in My Robe of Righteousness and Garments of salvation. This clothing is not ordinary; no, My Child, you have become EXTRAORDINARY.
I have clothed you with My POWER and GLORY and HONOR. I have given you My Garments full of life changing, demon breaking, victory making POWER!
Do you see why the enemy wants to blind your eyes to who you are in Me? When I crowned you with My Glory, I SURROUNDED you IN it.
You carry My Presence. My Spirit dwells in your heart. You are wrapped in My Glorious Resurrection Power.
It is the Mantle you wear. No one can take this from you, My Child. It is My Gift to you because you are Mine. It is no longer you who lives, but Christ living in you.
Rejoice, Beloved. Whom shall you fear, wearing My Garments of Light? My Robe has become your robe.
Rejoice, My Bride! The Bridegroom King has crowned you with Glory and Honor. I have removed your garments of mourning and clothed you with My JOY. Forever, We are ONE.”
Exchanging of Robes: A Hebrew custom: symbolism of covenant; “putting on” or taking on the identity of the covenant partner. In essence the two have become one. (1 Samuel 18:3-4, Genesis 41:42, 1 Samuel 17:38)
Crowned: Strong’s Hebrew 5849: to SURROUND, to crown.
