    "I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see." Revelation 3:18

    Our Lord utilized the nakedness of mankind to depict sin.

    "I heard you in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid.” Genesis 3:10

    Adam and Eve uncovered state is representative of the metaphor our Lord used to encourage us to be clothed by Him. That is, the removal of our sin, and the being clothed with white garments, those white curtains that surround the courtyard.

    Let us therefore be refined by fire, and forever be with Him, in assisting all creation in the image of God!

    This is illustrated beautifully with:

    "And LORD JEHOVAH God made for Adam and his wife coats of leather, and he clothed them." —Genesis 3:21, Aramaic Bible in Plain English

    He clothed them.

    It might be noteworthy to some that this action takes place after Adam and Eve are given the Messianic prophecy— arguably pointing to the act of salvation (granting of white clothes/robes) which comes after the Messiah and connecting the well-known prophecy of the Messiah who would crush the serpent— to the actions involving the "white clothes" and Genesis 3:21, as a foreshadowing for Adam and Eve to witness that which they would never live to see, and for those living today who thoughtlessly dress themselves every day for their lives, accustomed to having no appreciation for what that very action illustrates from our Creator... our Lord God... our Father.

    Appreciated your post!
    —Timothy
