The description of the Priestly garments are a representation of the character of Christ. They also reveal what was to come: the stones set on each shoulder for the priest to bear the 12 tribes before the Lord (Exodus 28:12). This was foretelling how Christ would bear the sins of the world on His shoulders by taking up the cross.
This plate of pure gold engraved with “Holiness to the Lord” is a symbol of the mind of Christ. This sets off a reminder to us, that our thoughts are to be Holiness to the Lord.
It is tied on by a Blue cord. The color blue represents Heavenly Things and is a reminder to keep our minds set on heavenly things.
The Final point on this is that our minds and our thoughts are what drive our actions. There is a VERY strong connection between heart and mind. Our mind and our thoughts can be seen as a seal placed upon us from God.
