The Emperor’s New Clothes


Ro 13:12  The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on <1746> the armour of light.

Ro 13:14  But put ye on <1746> the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.

1Co 15:53  For this corruptible must put on <1746> incorruption, and this mortal must put on <1746> immortality.

1Co 15:54  So when this corruptible shall have put on <1746> incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on <1746> immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

2Co 5:3  If so be that being clothed <1746> we shall not be found naked.

Ga 3:27  For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on <1746> Christ.

Eph 4:24  And that ye put on <1746> the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.

Eph 6:11  Put on <1746> the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

Eph 6:14  Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on <1746> the breastplate of righteousness;

Col 3:10  And have put on <1746> the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:

Col 3:12  Put on <1746> therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;

1Th 5:8  But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on <1746> the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.

Re 1:13  And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment <1746> down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.

Re 15:6  And the seven angels came out of the temple, having the seven plagues, clothed <1746> in pure and white linen, and having their breasts girded with golden girdles.

Re 19:14  And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed <1746> in fine linen, white and clean.

Strong’s Word # 1746 literally means to sink or plunge into new clothes.

The one who follows Jesus Christ has been unclothed of her sinful nature and has slipped into the clothes of the resurrection life

It’s not enough to know that you have been unclothed from the old and clothed with the new. You need to have an  in-depth understanding of your resurrection clothes.

We humans have been clothed so long in sinful clothes that our knowledge is primarily of what we have taken off. Even then, these old clothes, though now removed,  hang on to us like bees swarm to honey.

This is called mistaken identity.

Once the old come off there must be a systematic education  of what we now wear.

1Co 15:53  For this corruptible must put on <1746> incorruption, and this mortal must put on <1746> immortality.

1Co 15:54  So when this corruptible shall have put on <1746> incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on <1746> immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

Note that for death to be swallowed up in victory there has to be a meticulous accounting of our new resurrection clothes

In the short fable by Hans Christian Andersen, the emperor was promised new clothes, but was in fact naked after being swindled by two tailors.

Though we are arrayed in the glorious apparel of resurrection many will end up like the emperor and his new clothes, that though he we are sovereigns in Christ, we march before the world naked through the un renewing of our minds.
