A Loving Relationship is Built on Trust
Earlier in the letter to Sardis (see Revelation 3:4, 5) we found the meaning of the white clothes Jesus offers to the Laodiceans.
Here, the white garments are both a present and a future reality.
They are offered to the last-day people of earth’s history during the battle of Armageddon:
“Behold, I come like a thief! Blessed is he who stays awake and keeps his clothes with him, so that he may not go naked and be shamefully exposed” (Revelation 16:15).
The garments represent the garments of salvation.
To be dressed in the garment is to be right with God.
During His earthly ministry, Jesus told a story about people wanting to get into a wedding without a wedding garment.
But to gain entrance, they had to be wearing the wedding garment
(see Matthew 22:11–14).
