It was much more than just being naked in flesh. It was the realization of nothingness. The communion of God was severed. Now they get a third set of clothing. See God’s a wardrobe maker. They get third set of clothing. This time animals for the first time in the Bible are slain. Thus begins the process of vicarious, if you want, sacrifice; that something must die in the place of something else to make good. And we go through the Bible you’ll see so many illustrations.

In fact last year I spent many Festivals on TV talking about different places in the Bible where God does the clothing. Why do you think the mindset of God’s covering, which becomes the Kapporeth in the Hebrew: the covering – goes through and transcends the Bible in vestments. Matthew 22, the wedding festival. The guest was there and the king comes in and says “friend why are you not wearing a wedding garment? ┬áThe idea is we can’t do it on our own. There’s nothing we can do. There’s nothing we can say or do that can put something on the outside. The clothing that He puts as a type is something He gives to us. He does it. Look at Joshua in Zechariah 3:4 – the passage where Joshua stood before the angels, filthy garments. What does it say? It says remove those garments off of him. Take them away. Why? If we’re like you and me we just put something over it because that’s what we do. We just try and cover and put over. Take the garments away. Clothe him with new ones.

Pastor Melissa Scott tells us that straight through the Bible. That goes all the way. The whole concept, the whole way; why we needed the blood of the Lamb, the blood of Jesus Christ. Why we needed that once and for all, no more coverings. No more animals to be slain. You’d be surprised at how many people that I talk to, they do not understand. You’ve been taught.
