Parted His Garments
October 18, 2007
And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots.
Matthew 27:35 (KJV)
I read this and something within me stirred. When I think of the garments being parted I think of how each of us have been given robes because of Christ who gave to each of us. We are clothed in fine linen white and clean (Rev. 19:14). Christ put on the robe that was dipped in blood so that we might be made clean in Him.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
John 1:1 (KJV)
And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
Revelation 19:13 (KJV)
Thank you Adonai!
