The Bible appears to be giving us the picture of fleeing naked and leaving behind a garment as a picture of (1) the church coming into the great tribulation when Christ was taken. The body was left without a Head and the sheep were scattered. (2) Joseph fleeing the wife of Pharaoh appears to relate to the depart out when the believers are told to flee fornication. It’s a time when they leave the filthy garment of the church behind to come out of Babylon.
