6 – Priestly Garments

6. From the Book of Exodus

Fancy letter HHave Aaron your brother brought to you from among the Israelites, along with his sons Nadab and Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar, so they may serve Me as priests. Make sacred garments for your brother Aaron to give him dignity and honor. Tell all the skilled workers to whom I have given wisdom in such matters that they are to make garments for Aaron, for his consecration, so he may serve Me as priest. These are the garments they are to make: a breastpiece, an ephod, a robe, a woven tunic, a turban and a sash. They are to make these sacred garments for your brother Aaron and his sons, so they may serve Me as priests. Have them use gold, and blue, purple and scarlet yarn, and fine linen.

Ex 28, 1-5

 

6. Priestly Garments

6.05.2017

God the Father:  Daughter, today you read about what beautiful robes I ordered to make for Aaron and his sons. I ordered to hire the most distinguished weavers for this task. The most talented people on Earth should serve Me. Their abilities should give Me glory. Meanwhile, average things are begin made for Me. All human abilities are a sign of a particular election for service in My worship. They are an image of My genius and beauty, of which I am the Creator. The more pure the artist’s heart and intentions, the more generously I will gift him, so he may serve Me more faithfully with his work.

Priestly garments were once handicrafts, and those creating them gave Me praise through prayers. The priest who was to wear the holy garments was already surrounded by the prayer of those creating the holy liturgical vestments, even before he received them. The priestly garments spoke about the dignity of the priest and about his destiny exclusively for the service at the Altar. Their sumptuousness was the greater, the higher the dignity the priest attained, not so much in the human world as in the world of the grace of God.

The priest should wear royal garments, because he is like a king to the faithful, with whom he deals according to My Will. I impart His dignity. His authority comes from Me. He represents mankind in front of My eyes, so he should be decently dressed in order to show Me respect when he approaches Me. He not only comes to the prayer in which he apologizes to Me for your sins, but he takes part in the Sacrifice of My Son and touches God Himself; he does not just dwell in God’s spiritual presence, as it was in the times of Moses. In addition, the priest represents Me alone and speaks in My Name. He is the visible face of God, of His truth and grace, towards the faithful. The royal garments were to highlight the authority of the king over his subjects, over their life and death, and over their future fate; the authority which he received from God. Yet, the priest is a ruler appointed by Me forever, not only for a certain time. He also has the authority to rule over the eternal life and death of souls, and not only over their temporal life.

My daughter, the impoverishment of the appearance of the priest and of the dignity that I imparted to him, lessens Me in the eyes of the world. The priest is My property and if he renounces his dignity, pretending that he does not belong to Me, but to the world, he has already been defeated in his heart and is a coward. By offering the priest daily garments distinguishing him from all people on Earth, I singled him out in grace and showed to the world that he is no longer from the world, but belongs to the kingdom of My Spirit. And to touch him in any way is equivalent to touching the Holiness, which I am in him. It is like an armor against Satan and the world, in which I protect priestly and religious souls. And so the garment is not indifferent to Me, and not only the one of the priest but also yours. I will talk about this later. Remember that the lack of priestly garments and their negligence by priests is already a lack of faith, which I have announced to you while still stepping on the Earth in My Son. Amen.
