Summary: John envisioned the glorified Christ as being crowned with many crowss. This outline sets forth some of the crowns of our Savior.
CROWNED WITH MANY CROWNS
"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." Revelation 19:11-12.
I. THE ETERNAL CROWN OF GLORY!
“And now, glorify Thou Me together with Thyself, Father, with the glory which I had with Thee before the world was.” John 17:5.
“And He is the image of the invisible God…for by Him all things were created…all things have been created by Him and for Him.” Colossians 1:15-16 (abbreviated).
II. THE CROWN OF SINLESS HUMANITY!
“But made Himself of no reputation, and took upon Him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men.” Philippians 2:7.
“…but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin.” Hebrews 4:15
“And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.” John 1:14.
III. THE CROWN OF REDEMPTIVE THORNS!
“And they clothed Him with purple, and platted a crown of thorns, and put it on His head.” Mark 15:17.
“And according to the law almost all things are purified with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no remission (forgiveness of sin).” Hebrews 9:22.
IV. THE MANY CROWNS OF PRAISE AND WORSHIP!
“The twenty-four elders will fall down before Him who sits on the throne and will worship Him who lives forever and ever, and will cast their crowns before the throne, saying:
‘Worthy art Thou, our Lord and our God, to receive glory
and honor and power; for Thou didst create all things,
and because of Thy will they existed, and were
created.” Revelation 4:10-11.
V. THE MANY CROWNS OF ULTIMATE VICTORY!
“…and on His head were many crowns…” The scene here is the Battle of Armageddon (Revelation 19:11-16) when the enemies of God shall be destroyed in sudden and swift judgment.
