What are crowns in heaven? What is the crowning or rewarding of saints in heaven and how will it be?
Crowning is the rewarding of saints for their life time work on earth. Crowning or rewarding of saints in heaven will be in the judgment seat of Christ. Saints will be rewarded with crowns.
Yes! You confessed with you mouth, accepted and believed in you heart the Lord Jesus. Yes! You stood strong with great faith and believe in Jesus Christ in your entire lifetime on earth and Jesus saved you but where are the works?
Faith without works is hypocrisy
There are two different types of works;
- Work of God, and
- Work for God
Yes! You are saved, heaven is your Promised Land, but which works have you carried out on earth and how much have you invested in heaven because it is time for crowns or rewards in the judgment seat of Christ.
The Babylon and the work for God you did on earth in your lifetime will burn by fire and vanish with smoke. See man kingdoms not inline with heavenly kingdom.
1 Cor 3:10 – 11: According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon. For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
1 Cor 3:12 – 13: Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble. Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is.
1Cor 3:14- 15: If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.
Only the work of God you carried out will determine your richness in heaven and the type of crown or reward you will receive.
What are crowns or rewards in heaven?
Crowns in heaven
Crowns in heaven are not things we wear on our heads and parade around with but they are the outshining of the body which determines what kind of star you we will be.
We will have different bodies in heaven from the one we have now and the type of crown crowned on us determines the glory of your body i.e. the outshining of your eternal immortal body.
If Jesus has appeared to you, He has appeared to many like me in my testimony, you saw the outshining of His eternal body and that is the body we will all have in heaven but outshining differently according to the different types of crowns or rewards crowned on each one of us.
Like the stars, different bodies will outshine differently in heaven according to the type of crown or reward awarded for the works we have done on earth. This is what Apostle Paul was referring to when he said,
‘There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory. So also is the resurrection of the dead’ (1 Cor 15:41-42).
There will be different stars shinning differently in heaven i.e. our resurrected bodies will have different outshining each shining differently from another according to the crown crowned. The outshining is the glory of different bodies, glory of stars.
The glory or outshining is the capacity to enjoy eternity.
If you look at the stars in the sky in night, stars shine different from one another. They range from brightly shinning ones to very dull or dim unnoticeable ones.
After we are crowned with different crowns according to our works, saints in heaven will shine like the stars. Some will shine brightly while others will be dull or dim.
Every saint in heaven will be happy but with different type of crown or reward. This crown is the capacity to enjoy heaven and years to come.
Some will have a limited capacity to enjoy because they were saved and instead did nothing. Instead the cruised through life watching TV’s, making money for themselves, watching football, partying etc.
Do not think you will enjoy heaven the same way with a person who has been carrying out the work of God entirely in his/her life; carrying out the great commission. And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature Mk 16:15.
God is fair.
Rev 22:12: And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.
Yes! Some saints will have ‘mansionates while others huts’, ‘some tycoons others poppers’.
According to your works, which type of star will you be? What will be your capacity to enjoy heaven? What type of crown will you be rewarded?
You have the time now to determine your type of crown and your capacity to enjoy heaven and eternity.
Do the work of God and lay your treasure in heaven and you will be a ‘tycoon’ in heaven. Learn God way to use riches and how to employ them.
You can lay your treasure in heaven by helping us preach the gospel to every creature. And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature Mk 16:15.
