Romans 13:14

King James Version

14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, 

and make not provision for the flesh, 

to fulfil the lusts thereof.

It's not a dress rehearsal.

It's a "dress revival".

What does it mean to "dress" for revival?

How are we to dress for CHRIST, and the church?

In the course of studying revival today, SPIRIT led me to a David Jeremiah video on a Christian's "dress code".

From that, we broke down the idea to TWO things:

1. Put ON.

2. Put OFF.

Now, the verses:

Put ON.

Luke 5:37-38

King James Version

37 And no man putteth new wine into old bottles; 

else the new wine will burst the bottles, 

and be spilled, and the bottles shall perish.

38 But new wine must be put into new bottles; 

and both are preserved.

Romans 13:11-14

King James Version

11 And that, 

knowing the time, 

that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: 

for now is our salvation nearer 

than when we believed.

12 The night is far spent, 

the day is at hand: 

let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, 

and let us put on the armour of light.

13 Let us walk honestly, as in the day; 

not in rioting and drunkenness, 

not in chambering and wantonness, 

not in strife and envying.

14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, 

and make not provision for the flesh, 

to fulfil the lusts thereof.

1 Corinthians 15:52-54

King James Version

52 In a moment, 

in the twinkling of an eye,

 at the last trump: 

for the trumpet shall sound, 

and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, 

and we shall be changed.

53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, 

and this mortal must put on immortality.

54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, 

and this mortal shall have put on immortality, 

then shall be brought to pass 

the saying that is written, 

Death is swallowed up in victory.

Ephesians 4:24

King James Version

24 And that ye put on the new man, 

which after God is created in righteousness 

and true holiness.

Ephesians 6:11-17

King James Version

11 Put on the whole armour of God, 

that ye may be able to stand 

against the wiles of the devil.

12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, 

but against principalities, against powers, 

against the rulers of the darkness of this world, 

against spiritual wickedness in high places.

13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, 

that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, 

and having done all, to stand.

14 Stand therefore, 

having your loins girt about with truth, 

and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

15 And your feet shod with the preparation 

of the gospel of peace;

16 Above all, 

taking the shield of faith, 

wherewith ye shall be able to quench 

all the fiery darts of the wicked.

17 And take the helmet of salvation, 

and the sword of the Spirit, 

which is the word of God:

Colossians 3:10

King James Version

10 And have put on the new man, 

which is renewed in knowledge 

after the image of him that created him:

Colossians 3:12-17

King James Version

12 Put on therefore, 

as the elect of God, 

holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, 

humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;

13 Forbearing one another, 

and forgiving one another, 

if any man have a quarrel against any: 

even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.

14 And above all these things put on charity, 

which is the bond of perfectness.

15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, 

to the which also ye are called in one body; 

and be ye thankful.

16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly 

in all wisdom; 

teaching and admonishing one another 

in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, 

singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, 

do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, 

giving thanks to God and the Father by him.

1 Timothy 4:6

King James Version

6 If thou put the brethren 

in remembrance of these things, 

thou shalt be a good minister of Jesus Christ, 

nourished up in the words of faith 

and of good doctrine, 

whereunto thou hast attained.

1 Peter 3:3-4

King James Version

3 Whose adorning let it not be 

that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, 

and of wearing of gold, 

or of putting on of apparel;

4 But let it be the hidden man of the heart, 

in that which is not corruptible, 

even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, 

which is in the sight of God of great price.

Revelation 3:5

King James Version

5 He that overcometh, 

the same shall be clothed in white raiment; 

and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, 

but I will confess his name before my Father, 

and before his angels.

Put OFF.

Ephesians 4:22-23

King James Version

22 That ye put off 

concerning the former conversation the old man, 

which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;

23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;

Ephesians 4:25-31

King James Version

25 Wherefore putting away lying, 

speak every man truth with his neighbour:

for we are members one of another.

26 Be ye angry, and sin not: 

let not the sun go down upon your wrath:

27 Neither give place to the devil.

28 Let him that stole steal no more: 

but rather let him labour, 

working with his hands the thing which is good, 

that he may have to give to him that needeth.

29 Let no corrupt communication proceed 

out of your mouth, 

but that which is good to the use of edifying, 

that it may minister grace unto the hearers.

30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, 

whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.

31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, 

and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, 

be put away from you, with all malice:

Colossians 3:8-9

King James Version

8 But now ye also put off all these; 

anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, 

filthy communication out of your mouth.

9 Lie not one to another, 

seeing that ye have put off the old man 

with his deeds;

Now, it's time turn to what "pour OUT" means.

And that's for the next post.
