Isaiah 11:5 Jesus and His Clothes

Isaiah 11:5 Also righteousness will be the belt about His loins, and faithfulness the belt about His waist.

Isaiah 59:17 He put on righteousness like a breastplate, and a helmet of salvation on His head; and He put on garments of vengeance for clothing and wrapped Himself with zeal as a mantle.

Isaiah and the Old Testament tell what the Messiah will do. The New Testament confirms the promise. Steadiness and firmness are hallmarks of His character. In Revelation 19, the Apostle John confirms Jesus is the identity of the person in Isaiah 11:5 and 59:17.

Revelation 19:11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and He who sat on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and wages war.

As believers, we are called to be Christ-like and follow His example of dress.  Ephesians 6:14-17 Stand firm therefore, HAVING GIRDED YOUR LOINS WITH TRUTH, and HAVING PUT ON THE BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, and having shod YOUR FEET WITH THE PREPARATION OF THE GOSPEL OF PEACE; in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. And take THE HELMET OF SALVATION, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

Do not budge. Our faith, our belief in Christ protects us. He is our foundation. His truth and justice should hold us in place just as a belt supports our pants. This is how to protect ourselves from Satan. Jesus is synonymous with the Word. He is called and is the Word of God (Revelation 19:13).
