The Sword of the Spirit: The Sound of Many Waters
Chapter: The Robe of Sin (Pages 195-196)
When we consider the robe of sin that was placed upon Jesus, let us make it a priority to recognize the deep symbolism of this parable in the Bible. Jesus is and was perfect. He was cast into the world of sin as a Lamb brought to the slaughter. This slaughter
was both spiritual and physical. He felt the beatings and spiritual attacks but persevered in order to fulfill His promise to His Father.
The blanket of sin placed upon Jesus was spiritual. Satan plotted to destroy Jesus by destroying His image. His image was perfection. Satan, along with the Great Harlot, attack Jesus in any circumstances in which He may appear to be vulnerable, just as vultures. This is what we may also know as complete beastly attacks upon the Son of God. Jesus endured attacks from the evil spirits constantly. The one weapon that was used to attack Jesus was the power of the invisible evil spirits to harm Him without Him being fully aware of what was truly taking place. This was part of His sacrifice while in the world. This is how we may begin to know the army that Satan uses to harm Christians. Satan attempts to cover Christians with filth and sin.
All of the explanation that we need to understand this robe of sin may be addressed in the Books of Isaiah, Matthew, and Revelation.
Isaiah 1:18 “Come now, and let us reason together,” says the Lord, “Though your sins are as scarlet, they will be white as snow; Though they are red like crimson, they will be like wool.”
Matthew 27:27-28 “Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the Praetorium and gathered the whole Roman cohort around Him. And they stripped Him, and put a scarlet robe on Him.”
Revelation 17:1-3 “And one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and spoke with me, saying, “Come here, I shall show you the judgment of the great harlot who sits on many waters, with whom the kings of the earth committed acts of immorality, and those who dwell on the earth were made drunk with the wine of her immorality.” And he carried me away in the Spirit (Divine) into a wilderness; and I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast, full of blasphemous names, having seven heads and ten horns. “
Now let it be known that this is how we may begin to understand the sin of the world that has been projected onto the body of Jesus by the scarlet beast.
He stood up for God in all situations and did all that he could to help change the world…and save the lost from eternal doom…A nightmare for those who have persecuted him, manipulated, corrupted, threatened by subliminal messages, murdered, and destroyed lives through using evil weapons- such as drugs/black market…he has never committed a sin against His Father, who is in heaven, and who dwells within Him, having full authority.
The Holy Spirit gives us full understanding and discernment in this matter.
