What are crowning our head? (Part 2).

A crown, as it was said, serves to appoint as a king too. In the Testament of the Law, the Creator sought to make of Israel a priestly kingdom (Exodus 19.6):

  • “And I put a ring on your nose, and earrings in your ears, and a beautiful crown on your head.” (Eze 16:12).
  • “And there appeared a great sign in the heavens, a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon was under her feet, and a crown of twelve stars on her head,” (Rev 12:1).

(the woman, in both verses, is Israel).

As we know, Israel’s people turned down Creator’s calling for them (Exodus 20.18,19).

The good news is that this calling is available to the Church:

  • “and made us kings and priests to God and His Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.” (Revelation 1.6).
  • “For if by one man's offense death reigned by one, much more they who receive abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by One, Jesus Christ.)” (Romans 5.17).

Nevertheless, we can’t slip our mind how our King was crowned in this world:

  • “And the soldiers plaited a crown of thorns and put it on His head. And they put a purple robe on Him,” (Joh 19:2)

Notwithstanding:

  • “which He worked in Christ in raising Him from the dead, and He seated Him at His right hand in the heavenlies, far above all principality and authority and power and dominion, and every name being named, not only in this world, but also in the coming age. And He has put all things under His feet and gave Him to be Head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all.” (Ephesians 1.20-23)

And, as the Creator extolled Jesus, if we humble ourselves under His powerful hand, He, in a due time, will exalt us (1Peter 5.5-7).

So, let’s allow the humbleness and meekness of Christ sinking in our mind so that we can have a good day quashing the sin.
