Pray that we will prepare our wedding garment of “fine linen, bright and clean,” the fine linen being the righteousnesses of the saints, by living out Christ as our subjective and surpassing righteousness; that we will be beautified by Christ being wrought into us and being expressed through us as our beauty; and that we will fight the battle against God’s enemy and overcome him by speaking the word of God (Rev. 19:8; Phil. 3:9; Matt. 5:20; Eph. 3:17a; 5:26-27; S. S. 1:15; Eph. 6:11; Rev. 12:11; 19:13).
Rev. 19:8—And it was given to her that she should be clothed in fine linen, bright and clean; for the fine linen is the righteousnesses of the saints.
Phil. 3:9—And be found in Him, not having my own righteousness which is out of the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is out of God and based on faith.
Eph. 3:17a—That Christ may make His home in your hearts through faith.
Eph. 5:26-27—That He might sanctify her, cleansing her by the washing of the water in the word, that He might present the church to Himself glorious, not having spot or wrinkle or any such things, but that she would be holy and without blemish.
S. S. 1:15—Oh, you are beautiful, my love! / Oh, you are beautiful! Your eyes are like doves.
Rev. 12:11—And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they loved not their soul-life even unto death.
Rev. 19:13—And He is clothed with a garment dipped in blood; and His name is called the Word of God.
