“Obtain The Crown”


crown

When we live our life for Christ we’re encouraged by others who have gone before us which endured the same fight of afflictions,just as Christ did.

“Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses,let us lay aside every weight,and the sin which doth so easily beset us,and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our Faith;who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross,despising the shame,and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God”.

(Hebrews 12:1,2).cloud of witnesses

We can learn alot from the previous passage how Christ kept his sight on the Joy he would inherit after enduring all affliction knowing he would be seated at the right hand of the throne of God.We too live this present life knowing that Christ even despised the same shame we now endure for his name and know he went to prepare a place for us.

“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”.(James 1:12).Even as we receive the Holy Spirit for being obedient to the one we live our life for.(Act 5:32).temptation

Did you know that even we are considered as being a crown if we stand fast in the Lord. “Therefore,my brethren dearly beloved and longed for,my joy and crown,so stand fast in the Lord,my dearly beloved”.(Philippians 4:1).

There is only one thing that seperates us from the Love of God and that is to continue in sin and make no changes to live a Good and Right life!. “The crown is fallen from our head:woe unto us,that we have sinned!”.(LAMENTATIONS 5:16).

fallen crown

There is forgiveness for all,but we must repent and take the steps towards a Loving and true God who sent his only Son to endure the cross to free many! “Behold,I come quickly:hold that fast which thou hast,that no man take thy crown”.(Revelation 3:11).

  3. Ann………..Not to sound like I know exactly,but I truly feel you hit the nail on the head of why you were attacked….You are treading dangerous waters with what the muslims believe compared to your dear heart that is set on Jesus….I know it’s because you are so caring….Muslim is not a Faith in The Lord Jesus Christ it’s a god of the people and that is an enemy of the cross of Christ.We Love You Ann and I know God is able to protect his children as long as our sights are set on him.God Bless You Sister.

  5. Ann…………………Whatever it was that made you think to leave christianity could only be opposite of God.I pray you stay in the Faith.Our only hope is to strengthen our Faith in Jesus Christ and when we go through hard times that is when satan tries his best shot at making the Believer think they should not Believe. Whatever happened yesterday can be moved out of the way with the cross….It’s not worth leaving your Faith and lose Eternity.satan can’t offer that.God Bless You.

    • Ann, evil is trying to get back into your life. Don’t allow it, just call on the name of Jesus. Ask him to send His warrior angels to help you fight it off. Once you do that evil will depart and you will feel peace. I had that happen many times. Devil comes at your most difficult and low moments… Stay strong dear friend! I will pray for you!

    • Ann, I noticed yesterday you were silent. You are a child of the Most High God! Satan will still try, and no matter what your going through, there is nothing to be ashamed of. You must be doing something right or satan would not care. Nothing can snatch you from God’s hands! Unless you give up. You can never turn from Jesus. Keep your eyes focused on Jesus, and your in all our prayers. Father place a veil between Ann and evil, and evil doers. Hold her close to you, protect her, comfort her and give her strength! In Jesus name we pray, Amen!

    • Ann, there is a certain way to witness to muslims, you can look it up on internet. It is very hard, but if it’s in your heart do it and be very sensitive about it. If it doesn’t work pray that God speaks to them in their dreams, that’s what i pray for.

      I have close relatives and friends that are muslims, and I know how firmly they are set in their ways. They think that we all believe in one God, but they deny that Jesus is the Son of God and that he was crucified. They believe in laws, in being a good person, helping others, giving to the poor but there is no hope in their religion. It’s all IF i am good enough, God will forgive me, IF I do good for others God will be good to me, where in Jesus I KNOW that my sins are forgiven for I believe and I am saved by His Grace and not by my works.

      Stay firm in your faith my friend, attacks will come and go, and you can’t be shaken because Jesus is at your side, he is shielding you with His power and His love!!!
