THE FIVE CROWNS
Dr. and Mrs. Elias E. Hidalgo
THE FIVE CROWNS:
AS BELIEVERS IN Y’SHUA (JESUS) OUR LORD THERE ARE FIVE SPECIFIC CROWNS MENTIONED IN THE NEW COVENANT (TESTAMENT) AS REWARDS FOR FAITHFUL SERVICE, PRESUMABLY TO BE AWARDED BY OUR LORD AT ‘THE JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST’.
II CORINTHIANS 5: 10
‘FOR WE MUST ALL APPEAR BEFORE THE JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST; THAT EVERY ONE MAY RECEIVE THE THINGS DONE IN HIS BODY ACCORDING TO THAT HE HATH DONE, WHETHER IT BE GOOD OR BAD’.
I CORINTHIANS 3: 14 & 15
‘IF ANY MAN’S WORK ABIDE WHICH HE HATH BUILT THEREUPON, HE SHALL RECEIVE A REWARD’.
‘IF ANY MAN’S WORK SHALL BE BURNED, HE SHALL SUFFER LOSS: BUT HE HIMSELF SHALL BE SAVED; YET SO AS BY FIRE’.
LET US NOW LOOK INTO THE FIVE CROWNS THAT WE CAN WORK FOR:
I THE CROWN OF INCORRUPTIBILITY:
(KETER HA NIPH-SAD)
I CORINTHIANS 9: 25
‘AND EVERY MAN THAT STRIVETH FOR THE MASTERY IS TEMPERATE (SELF CONTROLLED) IN ALL THINGS. NOW THEY DO IT TO OBTAIN A CORRUPTIBLE CROWN (PERISHABLE); BUT WE AN INCORRUPTIBLE (IMPERISHABLE)’.
II THE CROWN OF RIGHTEOUSNESS:
II TIMOTHY 4: 8
‘HENCEFORTH THERE IS LAID UP FOR ME A CROWN OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, WHICH THE LORD, THE RIGHTEOUS JUDGE, SHALL GIVE ME AT THAT DAY: AND NOT TO ME ONLY, BUT UNTO ALL THEM ALSO THAT LOVE HIS APPEARING’.
III THE CROWN OF REJOICING:
(KETER HA SIMCHA)
I THESSALONIANS 2: 19
‘FOR WHAT IS OUR HOPE, OR JOY, OR CROWN OF REJOICING? ARE NOT EVEN YE IN THE PRESENCE OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST AT HIS COMING’?
WHEN WE LEAD A JEWISH AND OR GENTILE INDIVIDUAL TO OUR LORD LIKE SAUL-PAUL AND OTHERS DID, THEN, WE TOO WILL EARN THE CROWN OF REJOICING.
IV THE CROWN OF LIFE:
JAMES 1: 12
‘BLESSED IS THE MAN THAT ENDURETH TEMPTATION: FOR WHEN HE IS TRIED, HE SHALL RECEIVE THE CROWN OF LIFE, WHICH THE LORD HATH PROMISED TO THEM THAT LOVE HIM’.
V THE CROWN OF GLORY:
(KETER HA KABOD)
I PETER 5: 2 – 4
‘FEED THE FLOCK OF GOD WHICH IS AMONG YOU, TAKING THE OVERSIGHT THEREOF, NOT BY CONSTRAINT, BUT WILLINGLY; NOT FOR FILTHY LUCRE, BUT OF A READY MIND’;
‘NEITHER AS BEING LORDS OVER GOD’S HERITAGE, BUT BEING EXAMPLES TO THE FLOCK’.
‘AND WHEN THE CHIEF SHEPHERD SHALL APPEAR, YE SHALL RECEIVE A CROWN OF GLORY THAT FADETH NOT AWAY’.
ONE CROWN THAT WE CAN NOT TAKE CREDIT FOR IS ‘THE WORK OF SALVATION’. WE WHO HAVE BEEN BORN AGAIN BY THE SPIRIT OF GOD ARE SENT OUT BY THE LORD TO TAKE HIS MESSAGE OF SALVATION TO THE WHOLE WORLD BEGINNING IN JERUSALEM.
Acts 1: 8
‘But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth’.
SALVATION IS OF GOD, IT IS THE LORD WHO SAVES AND GIVES TO US ETERNAL LIFE. ONLY JESUS WEARS THIS CROWN, THE CROWN OF SALVATION. Y’SHUA (JESUS) IS CROWNED WITH GLORY AND HONOR.
Hebrews 2: 7 – 10
‘Thou madest him a little lower than the angels; thou crownedst him with glory and honour, and didst set him over the works of thy hands’:
‘Thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that he put all in subjection under him, he left nothing that is not put under him. But now we see not yet all things put under him’.
‘But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man’.
‘For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings’.
GOD THE FATHER HAS CROWNED GOD THE SON WITH GLORY AND HONOR OVER ALL THINGS, EVEN THE WORK OF SALVATION.
Jude 1: 24 – 25
‘Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy’,
‘To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen’.
AS WE TOGETHER CONTINUE OUR GOD GIVEN MISSION, IN REACHING OUT TO A LOST WORLD, LET US REMEMBER TO FOLLOW THE PRINCIPLES SET BEFORE US ACCORDING TO THE WORD OF GOD IN:
ROMANS 1: 16 – 17
‘For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek’.
‘For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith’.
