Having been in a bit of pain from my surgery last week, I was just meditating on The LORD, and I heard this, “Claim your Crown!”
I knew there was treasure in this statement, there were nuggets of Gold to dig for. So I looked up the Strong’s Greek for Crown which is G4735: A wreath (garland), awarded to a victor in the ancient athletic games (like the Greek Olympics); A crown of victory. Is used of a plaited wreath (“crown”), like the one made of thorns placed on the head of Christ at His trial (Matthew 27:29, Mark 15:17; John 19:2,5)
Wow, brothers and sisters. Whatever you are going through,”Claim your Crown!”
This crown was placed on your head by King Jesus Himself when you were born again. He was crowned with thorns( the curse and death) so that we are now crowned with His Glory and Honor.
Because Jesus wears THE Victor’s Crown, so do we! Our crowns come from His Crown! Claim that Crown, Beloved! Victory is yours!
“Beloved. Do not listen to the lies of the enemy. Cast down those thoughts of hopelessness. Rise up, My Warrior, and claim your Crown of Victory!
Keep running the race, My Child. Keep fighting the good fight of faith. Straighten that Crown on your head. NO one can steal it from you.
You are MORE than a conqueror through Him who loves you. I have crowned you with Glory and Honor. You are NOT defeated but you are victorious through The Cross.
Many are the afflictions of the righteous but I deliver you from them ALL! Stand firm, Beloved, in your faith and do not give up.
I have said these things to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.
Hold your head up high. You are a King’s Kid. You wear the Garland of Victory. You wear My Victory Crown. Claim your victory, Beloved!
Claim your Crown in the midst of the enemy and watch him flee! The King of kings and The LORD of lords has commanded your victory once and for all time!
Not with your own sword, nor did your own arm deliver you, but it is by My Power, My Strength, and by the Light of My Face; because I delight in you, My Warrior.
I AM your King, your God who commands your victories! Claim the Crown of the King of kings!”
“And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat One like unto the Son of Man, having on His head a golden crown, and in His hand a sharp sickle.” Revelation 14:14.
“They dressed Him in a purple robe, twisted some thorns into a victor’s crown, and placed it on His head.” Mark 15:17.
“What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? For You have made him a little lower than the angels, and have CROWNED him with glory and honour. You made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet.” Psalm 8:4-6.
“I am coming soon! Hold on to what you have so that no one takes your VICTOR’S CROWN.” (You ALREADY HAVE IT) Revelation 3:11.
“Around the throne were 24 other thrones, and on these thrones sat 24 elders wearing white robes and gold victor’s crowns on their heads.” Revelation 4:4.
“The twenty-four elders fall down before the One seated on the throne, and they worship Him who lives forever and ever. They cast their crowns before the throne, saying: “Worthy are You, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for You created all things; by Your will they exist and came to be.” Revelation 4:10-11.
“Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many CROWNS. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself. He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses. Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.” Revelation 19:11-16.
“It was not with their sword that they inherited the land, nor did their own arm deliver them. But it was by your power, your strength, and by the light of your face; because you were pleased with them. You are my king, God, command victories for Jacob. Through You we will knock down our oppressors; through Your Name we will tread down those who rise up against us.” Psalm 44:3-4.
