Crown of Righteousness

Crown of righteousness is one of the types of crowns in heaven. It is a crown which shall be awarded to every saint.

Crown of righteousness shall be awarded in the judgment seat of Christ. Remember that believers and unbelievers will be in different judgment seats.

What is the crown of righteousness?

Righteousness by faith is the righteousness of God; see the 2 types of righteousness. Every person with great faith in Jesus Christ will be in heaven since salvation is only by grace through faith.

Heaven is only for people righteous by grace through faith in Jesus Christ because Jesus is the only way.

John 14:6: Jesus said unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes unto the Father, but by me.

Thus every person righteous by faith in Jesus Christ shall be clothed with the clean fine white linen, the crown of righteousness.

Rev 19:7-8: Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honor to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife has made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.

Zechariah vision of crown of righteousness

We see the crown of righteousness, the clothing of saints, in visions of Zechariah.

Zechariah saw Joshua the high priest in heaven. And he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the LORD (Zec 3:1).

Joshua was in heaven for clothing but the accuser, Satan, was there to accuse him.and Satan standing at his right hand to resist him (Zec 3:1).

As seen in Arch angel Michael battle with Satan in tribulation period and here, Satan has access to heaven. In heaven he accuses the righteous as he was there to accuse Job.

Zec 3:3: Now Joshua was clothed with filthy garments, and stood before the angel.

When Jesus Christ appeared to me in my testimony, I compared myself to Him and pitied myself. I was so dirty, filthy that I could not look at Him. We are all sinners, clothed with a filthy garment of sin.

We (Christians) must not worry about our filthy garments of sin because this is who we are and Jesus died on the cross, paid the ransom, for us to be clothed in fine linen like Joshua.

Zec 3:4: And he answered and spoke unto those that stood before him, saying, Take away the filthy garments from him.  And unto him he said, Behold, I have caused your iniquity to pass from thee, and I will clothe thee with change of raiment.

This is the clothing of saints in the Marriage Ceremony; the Marriage of the Lamb. The bride (saints) shall be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white; the righteousness of saints.

Rev 19:7-8: Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honor to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife has made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.

The clothing of saints with clean fine white linen is the righteousness of saints, the crown of righteousness.

Every person in heaven shall be clothed with clean fine white linen, made righteous forever; crowned with the crown of righteousness.

The crown of righteousness, the clothing with clean white line does not shine; no outshining. The degree of outshining of our resurrected body depends on the other types of crowns crowned on us according to the works we have done on earth. See the crowning of saints.

Are you righteous by faith in Jesus Christ to be in heaven and crowned crown of righteousness? Accept Jesus Christ today.

Apart from crown of righteousness, every saint in heaven shall be crowned crown of rejoicing. See the crown of rejoicing (next).

God bless
