Blessed are those who wash their robes that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city.
This is a glorious picture of unbelievers entering the gates of the Holy City after having their filthy rags of self-righteousness washed in the blood of the Lamb, through repentance and God given faith in the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. These unbelievers are none other than those who will be judged in God's Lake of Fire. Once they have washed their filthy robes they become blessed with the clothing of God's Righteousness and are able to enter the gates of the Holy City to have the right to the Tree of Life.
