MATTHEW 6:25_Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
Raiment is translated as clothing or apparel or garments. Meat in this verse represents any kind of food.
When you die, you won’t be packing a sack lunch. Food stays here – heavenly food will be provided for your heavenly body. Jesus’ first temptation in the wilderness was to eat when He had been called to fast. Do you recall what He said to the devil? Matthew 4:4 (KJV), “But he answered and said, ‘It is written, man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.’’ This calls for the spirit to be stronger than the body. You can practice strength building for your spirit just as your body.
When you die you won’t be packing a suitcase either. The clothes stay here. You will have clothes on your body in a coffin, but the body in the coffin isn’t going anywhere either.
Again, heavenly clothes will be provided for the heavenly body. Heavenly bodies will not be dependent upon anything from the earth.
Your heavenly clothes may be full of light. How cool would that be?
Whatever you wear in heaven, I promise there will be no fashion police!
God in Heaven, Thank You my spirit can withstand difficult times. In the powerful name of Jesus, Amen.
Christ strengthens the spirit—He will strengthen mine!
