When I spotted what this daughter of Zion wore to the wedding ceremony, I asked her what happened that she wore such a revealing dress. Her answer was to blame her tailor. “Pastor sir, it is my tailor that made it that way. I did not see it until today”. However, it was not too long afterward, that I realized that it was not the tailor, it was a pattern that she was gradually settling into.

First, every child of God must live in the consciousness of royal priesthood. A believer is both a priest and a king. When you gave your life to Christ, your identity changed.

But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light. 1 Peter 2:9 KJV

Let’s take a cue from the priesthood of Aaron. Aaron and His sons were set apart as priests in Israel. It was an office they were to occupy. Do you know the first thing God mentioned after they were set apart as priests? It was their clothing:

And thou shalt make holy garments for Aaron thy brother for glory and for beauty.
Exodus 28:2 KJV

God set the purpose for dressing right there: First, it must be for glory. Second, it must be for beauty.

But it did not stop there. Do you know that God literally prescribed the kind of “tailors” and “fashion designers” that can sew for the priest? Yes He did:

And thou shalt speak unto all that are wise hearted, whom I have filled with the spirit of wisdom, that they may make Aaron’s garments to consecrate him, that he may minister unto me in the priest’s office.
Exodus 28:3 KJV

Tell all who are expert, whom I have endowed with skill and good judgment, that they shall make Aaron’s garments to sanctify him for My priesthood.
Exodus 28:3 AMPC

Those who make cloths for priests must be wise-hearted. They must be full of the spirit of wisdom.

Dear believer, of you claim that your tailor is the problem, well! God prescribed the type of a tailor a priest should use:

The tailor must be skillful. They must know their onions. They must be very good on their job.

But there is another requirement: The tailor must have good judgment. Next time get a tailor that knows that your breasts are not for display. Get someone that will not be saying, ‘Except your breasts show a bit, the work will not show’. So you eventually got a wedding gown that does not look like your priesthood.

God had to emphasize it again and he gave his reasons for this: Their nakedness must be covered.

And for Aaron’s sons thou shalt make coats, and thou shalt make for them girdles, and bonnets shalt thou make for them, for glory and for beauty. And thou shalt make them linen breeches to cover their nakedness; from the loins even unto the thighs they shall reach:
Exodus 28:40, 42 KJV

God gave three simple conditions for the appearance of a priest:

For Glory
For Beauty
For covering of nakedness.

You are now a priest. Does your dressing represent you well? Or are you still blaming your tailor? Then change the tailor! Or change your heart. Repent!
