As Aaron and Moses led the Hebrew Israelites out of bondage (Eygpt), they were separated into 12 tribes. Today I am going to focus on the Levites. The Levites were set apart to be priests after showing an ultimate loyalty and commitment to God; you can read more about Exodus 32. The priests had to adhere to a set dress code to enter the sacred Holy of Holies during Atonement Day. Any deviation from what was required would resort in death. The dress code consisted of a scared linen tunic, linen undergarments, a linen sash, and a linen turban ( Leviticus 16:4). This attire must be worn over a freshly cleansed body. Why linen? Linen is a breathable material that will not cause you to perspire. Entering the Holy of Holies was to enter the presence of God and in order to be in God's presence we must forgo our impurities. The High Priest could become contaminated even through physical sweating! God cares about what we wear. This is only one example of the many that will be discussed in this blog. Since we are talking about linen, here is a beautiful linen dress from the up and coming brand Sleeper in the style of The Atlanta Dress.
