Psalm 45:14 (b) These garments represent two things.

The golden garment represents the righteousness of GOD which He gives to His bride as a gift. It is not made by her, but it is made for her. It is not a product of human hands, but of GOD's heart.

The garment of needlework, however, is the white linen garment, and consists of the righteous acts of GOD's people By these, their good deeds, they weave a robe to wear, when they meet the Lord in the air. It is not the "robe of righteousness," for that is given to us by GOD when we trust the Saviour, that is the golden dress. Deeds of righteous living, godly actions, holy ambitions, and saintly words constitute the white robe, and we should be sure it is made full size.

Isaiah 14:19 (a) The description even in this portion seems to be a description of the covering of Satan, and of his character. The garments that he wore were gorgeous, magnificent and beautiful, but were not sufficiently strong to offer successful resistance in a day of wrath. In the fateful hour GOD cast him down.

Isaiah 63:3 (a) The garments of our Lord JESUS will be stained with the blood of His enemies as He treads them under His feet in His wrath in the coming day of judgment. His righteous wrath will be revealed by the Blood stains on His garments.

Ezekiel 16:13 (a) This is a description of the beauty of Israel in the earlier years of their history. The songs of David echoed throughout the empire, there was prosperity, and the fear of GOD permeated the congregation. The garments represent the character of the people.

Zechariah 3:4 (a) The soiled garments represent the evil and wicked life of the ordinary person. In another Scripture He calls these "filthy rags." In the time of the new birth, or salvation, GOD removes these garments and replaces them with the Robe of Righteousness, which is the Garment of Salvation. This robe makes us presentable to GOD so that we may come into His presence without hesitation.

Revelation 3:5 (b) This is typical of the beautiful, sinless character of those who are saved by grace, walk with GOD, and are overcomers of sin and evil. These permit the life also of JESUS to be manifest in their moral bodies. (See also Revelation 3:18, and Revelation 4:4).
