Revelation 1:13 King James Bible
And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.
I heard a preacher say this symbolizes Christs service to the church. We would call it a Golden apron.
I checked this out in Greek to English dictionary. The word is
probably akin to the base of zugoV – zugos 2218; a belt; by implication, a pocket:–girdle, purse.
So I looked up the base word it comes from. zugos 2218
from the root of zeugnumi (to join, especially by a “yoke”); a coupling, i.e. (figuratively) servitude (a law or obligation); also (literally) the beam of the balance (as connecting the scales):–pair of balances, yoke
So this may not be too far off. It could symbolize his office of service. I think its interesting that our God may wear a golden apron.
That should show us something about service and where it fits.
In a another verse it says Jesus will wear a apron and serve those who are waiting for him.
[ When the Master Shows Up ] “Keep your shirts on; keep the lights on! Be like house servants waiting for their master to come back from his honeymoon, awake and ready to open the door when he arrives and knocks. Lucky the servants whom the master finds on watch!
He’ll put on an apron,
sit them at the table, and serve them a meal, sharing his wedding feast with them. It doesn’t matter what time of the night he arrives; they’re awake—and so blessed!
