Dena,
Now we go to stage 5 of overcomming. We read in the book called The Revelation in chapter 3 verse 5,[...He that overcomes shall be clothed in white garments and I will not blot out his name from the book of life...].
It has been revealed to me that in the stages of overcomming one that reaches this stage will have a different clothing. This clothing is called the clothing of white garment and the book called the Revelation is a book of symbols , the white garment being something that happens to one that has to do with their appearance to others as a light shinning in a dark place. This has been revealed to me that this appearance is given to those that as in verse 4 here in chapter 3,[...there are a few here which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy...].
It has been revealed to me that the {white garment} is the {glory of God}, that a person's perception is of that person to be a light in a dark place. One that has overcome to this degree as that they are unspotted, is as to that their carnal mind has been conquered and put to death, which is death to the carnal mind, the death of death, a second death, so that the spiritual mind is their whole {garment}.
As I read that verse I was led to the book called Isaiah, chapter 49, verse 6 which reads;[...I will also give my sevants to be a light to others, that they will receive salvation...]and I am reminded of a Psalm, 104, verses 1 and 2, which read,[...my God, You are very great: You are clothed with honor and majesty, Who cover yourself with light as with a garment, Who strtch out the heavens like a cutain...].
And then to the book called Isaiah chapter 60 verse 1 to 3 as we read;
Arise, shine;
For your light has come!
And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.
For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth,
And deep darkness the people;
But the Lord will arise over you.
And kings to the brightness of your rising.
It has been revealed to me that the white garment is given to those that God is now using as a servant of God, to be a light to those around them to reveal the aspects that are good concerning the Kingdom of God to them, and that the Kingdom of God is at hand, that is within them, that they can cross over the Great Gulf and eat of the tree of life which is in the midst of the Paradise of God.
Lou
