Before we explore an ancient foundation for the Bride of the Messiah being clothed in righteousness, let us first understand that His Bride is made up of two components:  The 144000 First Fruits and  the Wise Virgins. Please refer to: https://santatizing.wordpress.com/2017/01/01/ten-virgins-will-greet-both-the-bridegroom-the-bride/.
Since the Bride of the Messiah is truly one with their Beloved Bridegroom, whatever is true about the first fruits of the Bride – the 144000 – is also true for the Wise Virgins to the exclusion of being chosen by God Himself to be a first fruit of His Bride from among the twelve tribes of Israel, as part of His 144000 Virgin Bride Company (Rev. 7:4-8).
Always remember that those standing with the Lamb and following Him wherever He goes are His Bride who are clothed in righteousness:
“And I looked, and lo, the Lamb stood on Mount Zion, and with Him a hundred and forty-four thousand in number, having the name of His Father on their brows. Then I heard a voice from heaven, like the sound of many waters and like the sound of a great thunder; and the voice I heard was like the music of many harpists playing on their harps; And they sang a new song before the throne and before the four animals and the elders; and no man was able to learn that song except the hundred and forty-four who were redeemed from the earth. These are those who were not defiled with women, for they are pure. THESE ARE THOSE WHO FOLLOW THE LAMB WHEREVER HE GOES. THESE WERE REDEEMED BY JESUS FROM AMONG MEN TO BE THE FIRST FRUIT TO GOD AND TO THE LAMB” (Revelation 14:1-4 Lamsa’s Aramaic).
Technically, the Bible could say “These are those who were not defiled” instead of “these are those who were not defiled with women;” because “these” in the phrase “these are those” is the Greek word “houtos”, which covers the broadest spectrum possible, namely: he, she, or even it. The Archangel Gabriel and Yeshua told me on December 4, 1999 that “144000 Virgin Bride will cover the broadest spectrum within the confines of representing all the tribes of Israel” (Rev. 7:4-8). Please refer to this video for more about that => https://youtu.be/AFHar-U5cik.
Revelation 19 is the most specific about His Bride bring clothed in righteousness (i.e., righteous deeds):
“And after these things, I heard a great voice of a great multitude in heaven, saying, Halleluia! Salvation and power and glory and honor to our God, for His judgments are true and righteous; for He has condemned the great harlot who has corrupted the earth with her adultery, and has avenged the blood of His servants at her hand. And a second time, they said, Halleluia! And her smoke rose up for ever and ever. And the four and twenty elders and the four animals fell down and worshipped God who sat on the throne, saying, Amen, Alleluia! And a voice came out from the throne, saying, Praise our God all you His servants and you who worship him, both small and great. And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, like the voice of many waters and like the sound of mighty thunderings, saying, Halleluia! For our Lord God, omnipotent, reigns. Let us be glad and rejoice and give glory to Him, for the time of the marriage feast of the Lamb has come, and His Bride has made herself ready. IT WAS GIVEN TO HER THAT SHE SHOULD BE ARRAYED IN FINE PURE LINEN, CLEAN AND WHITE; FOR FINE LINEN IS THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF SAINTS” (Revelation 19:1-8 Lamsa’s Aramaic).
The ancient foundation of the Bride being clothed in righteousness, which are the righteous deeds of the saints, goes back to the Kohanim – the High Priestly line of Aaron. Let’s first understand that since the Bride of the Messiah is made up of the kings and priests of the Order of Melchizedek who lead their own inner fire bride forth, we can extrapolate that they are part of the Melchizedek’s High Priestly line through their oneness with the High Priest of the Order of Melchizedek – Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ). Refer to https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2017/01/23/the-order-of-melchizedek-consists-of-high-priests/.
The LORD our Wonderful and Holy God gave us a picture of His High Priestly line through the Kohanim who wore clothes of righteousness, as they attended to divine service in God’s Temple. These clothes of righteousness were the garments they wore when they performed righteous acts. This is a glorious foreshadow to the Bride being clothed in righteousness.
I have taught over and over again that righteousness is first a State of Being where one is resonating at the same frequency of the Word of God Himself, which was true for the Kohanim too. Once you and I are vibrating as one with the One and we are focused on doing the perfect will of the Heavenly Father, this is when we are clothed in righteousness… clothed via righteous deeds or acts.

May you and I be clothed in His righteousness!
Give em heaven!!!
