Will All Christians Be Clothes In Fine Linen?
Written by Maurice Wright

In this study of ‘Will all Christians be clothed in fine linen,’ The answer is unequivocally no. This is the reason why Jesus warned us in the scripture when He said, "Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked and they see his shame" (Revelation 16:15-17). Jesus Christ placed a qualifier on that scripture that will separate those Christians who are blessed from those Christians who will walk naked and ashamed. Why is this information important in relationship to our Christian walk? The consequence of our actions here on earth have eternal implications that will determine the spiritual clothing we will wear in eternity. Our righteous work is the fabric of heaven that God use to weave and sew our eternal garments. With a word of wisdom from our Father, take this journey with me into the scripture to witness the weaving of your garment.

Revelation 14:13-And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.

The word ‘follow’ in Greek means, "as a particle of union, to accompany." (Strong’s #190)

The word ‘accompany’ defined by Webster’s Dictionary means, "to follow as a companion."

The word ‘work’ in Greek means, "an act: deed, doing, labour." (Strong’s #2041)

Our righteous work is the spiritual record of our life and constant companion in the eyes of God. The value of that work is based on His righteousness. This inseparable connection between our work as God will view it on judgment day (2 Corinthians 5:6-10 - Romans 14:7-12 - Revelation ), and the reward that we will receive based on that work will determine wheather we are clothed in fine white linen or spiritually naked and ashamed (Revelation 3:14-19).

Revelation 19:7-9-Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to Him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and His wife hath made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of the saints. And he saith unto me, "write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb." And he saith unto me, These are the true saying of God.

The word ‘righteousness’ in Greek mean: "an equitable deed." (Strong’s #1345)

The word ‘deed’ defined by Webster’s Dictionary means, "a thing done; an act."

God is a consuming fire (Hebrews 12:29), and His word is the fiery flames that shall judge the work of all people. Any Christian who experience the shame of having their work consumed by the flames of truth shall be saved, but they themselves will lack the necessary fabric for their garment.
