Revelation 19:7-8 states, “Let us rejoice and exult and give him the glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and his Bride has made herself ready; “it was granted her to clothe herself with fine linen, bright and pure”– for the fine linen is the righteous deeds of the saints.”
Just as in ancient times, an earthly king’s family could be recognized by their royal garments, so should our modest attire identify us as belonging to the Kingdom of our Holy King who commands us to walk in His love. Being mindful of our neighbors’ welfare and endeavoring to create a safe environment in this assembly, is one aspect of walking in our Messiah’s love and bringing honor to Him.
1 Peter 2:9 states, “But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.”
Here are some guidelines we desire to be followed when we are on campus, that will demonstrate the “higher standard” that Adonai has called His bride to walk in:
- No shorts at any time in the tabernacle/sanctuary during service. However, shorts may be worn in the Kafé Oneg after service, but they should be to the knee, loose fitting, with a top covering junction.
- Pants should be loose fitting pants with top long enough to cover junction loosely.
- No tight fitting clothing unless worn underneath a looser outer garment.
- Necklines should be kept high in order to cover modestly.
- Skirt lengths should be below the knee when sitting and slits not cut too high.
- No “see-through” clothing showing silhouettes.
We must dress and comport ourselves in such a manner that we become as transparent veils through which the Light of Messiah may shine forth for the glory of YHVH.
1 Corinthians 6: 19-20 states, “Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from Elohim (God)? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify Elohim (God) in your body.”
What would our answer be if asked “What do others think when they see us?”
Hopefully, the answer would be that they “see” the Bride of Yeshua, dressed in “fine linen”.
