Dear reader, there is something special about wearing white. This article gives you seven reasons why Christians should wear more white.
1. Because the Bible says so.
First, the written word of God in the Bible encourages Christians to dress more in white. Hear what Ecclesiastes 9:8 says:
Let your clothes be white all the time.
2. White is the color of heavenly garments.
Second, when you manage to get to heaven, you will find that most people there are dressed in white. Therefore, if you plan to spend your eternity in heaven, you better get used to wearing white.
As a illustration, listen to what the written word of God in Revelation 7:9:
After this I looked, and there was a vast multitude from every nation, tribe, people, and language, which no one could number, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were clothed in white robes with palm branches in their hands.
3. God’s angels wear white.
Furthermore, all God’s angels wear white. As an example, hear what the written word of God in the Bible says in Mathew 28:2-3:
There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. 3 His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow.
4. The 24 Elders in heaven are also dressed in white.
Also, unlike the elders in our earthly churches, the elders in heaven are always dressed in white which is symbolic of God’s holiness. Therefore it is advisable that you start dressing like the 24 elders.
For example, listen to what the Bible says in Revelation 4:4
Surrounding the throne were twenty-four other thrones, and seated on them were twenty-four elders. They were dressed in white and had crowns of gold on their heads.
5. The armies in heaven are also dressed in white.
Interestingly, unlike on earth where most armies wear camouflage uniforms, God’s army in heaven is always dressed in white.
Hear what the Bible says in Revelation 19:14:
The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean.
6. God’s judgement throne is white as well.
Equally important, Christians have to remember that one day they will stand before God’s throne of judgement, which is white. Therefore, as we prepare for that day, it makes more sense to start practicing putting on white clothes.
Listen to what the Bible says in Revelation 20:11:
And I saw a great white throne and the one who sat upon it, from whose face the earth and sky fled away, but they found no place to hide.[a]
7. All victorious Christians will be dressed in white.
Finally, God will dress you in white if you succeed in thwarting all the traps that Satan has set for you. It is therefore better to get used to being dressed in white, which is the color of victory.
As a matter of fact, hear what the written word of God says in Revelation 3:5
The one who is victorious will, like them, be dressed in white. I will never blot out the name of that person from the book of life, but will acknowledge that name before my Father and his angels.
