Garment Of Praise (GOP) is an online store that sells men’s and women’s clothing and delivers orders from R250 free of charge to and around the four cities in South Africa: JHB, PTA,DBN and CPT. It is founded on the Scripture from Isiah 61:3 which says the Lord Jesus came to give a garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness. We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God, He came to earth and was born as Son of Man, He was crucified and died on the cross and was raised by God the Father through the Holy Spirit on the third day and is now alive at the right hand of the Father in heaven and inside those who believe in Him.
Praise means to lift up, glorify or rave about. Our primary objective is to lift Jesus Christ high because of the finished works of the cross, we do this by proclaiming the message of the cross which is printed on our garments. Jesus Himself said ‘If I be lifted up from the earth, I will draw all men to Me’ John 12:32. A garment of praise is for everyone, especially those who love Jesus Christ and are not ashamed of the Gospel. Also those who love the Word and are passionate about evangelizing. When you are not orally speaking, the garment of praise will be speaking to the reader on your behalf.
The spirit of heaviness is a spirit of depression and oppression. It manifests in the society as clinical depression and as oppression which is a results from a very busy lifestyle. Our thoughts and minds are taken over by our lifestyles to an extend that Jesus is no longer a priority. But as the Word says ‘’From the days of John the Baptist the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force’’ (Mathew 11 :12). Instead of being oppressed and depressed we want to set our minds on eternal things by praising Jesus Christ.
The garments of praise are fashionable, trendy and appropriate for a child of the Most High God.
