Crown of Thorns
MATTHEW And they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet robe. 29 And when they had platted a crown of thorns, they put it upon his head, and a reed in his right hand: and they bowed the knee before him, and mocked him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews! 30 And they spit upon him, and took the reed, and smote him on the head. 31 And after that they had mocked him, they took the robe off from him, and put his own raiment on him, and led him away to crucify him.
GENESIS 3 17 And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; 18 Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;
PLANTING.THE.VINE.AND.WHERE.TO.PLANT.IT_ JEFF.IN SUNDAY_ E-24 That's the whole lot's the matter with the Branham Tabernacle. Because that unbelief, the cares of the world has bound the people until it cannot produce spiritual growth. That's what's the matter with our nation. That's the matter with our churches. They have no joy, and the joy of the Lord has departed, as was written one time in the Scripture, the Hebrew word of "Ichabod," which means, "The Presence of the Lord has departed."
PLANTING.THE.VINE.AND.WHERE.TO.PLANT.IT_ JEFF.IN SUNDAY_ You take that same plant, cactus, and put it into a land for a few generations where there's plenty of water, and that sticker will unfold, and will come a soft leaf bearing fruit.
PLANTING.THE.VINE.AND.WHERE.TO.PLANT.IT_ JEFF.IN SUNDAY_ No joy, just a sprinkle now and then of a little revival to hold it. What it needs to be is to come out from among scoffers and unbelievers, and be planted by the rivers of water. For there is a fountain filled with Blood, drawn from Immanuel's veins, where sinners, unbelievers, plunged beneath the flood, lose all their guilty stains.
ONENESS_ JEFF.IN V-10 N-2 SUNDAY_ I'm persuaded that many of us, friends, have received the Holy Ghost, but we just receive enough Holy Ghost in us to make us to a place where we don't want to lie, we don't want to steal, we don't want to do anything. But God wants to fill every fiber of His church; He wants to fill your thinking; He wants to fill your mind. He wants to fill every bit of you, just make you completely, totally dead to yourself or to your thinking, just so surrendered in God till His Word's just living right through you. You don't know nothing else but God's Word; just stay right with His Word; It is Life.
EXODUS And they shall make an ark of shittim wood: two cubits and a half shall be the length thereof, and a cubit and a half the breadth thereof, and a cubit and a half the height thereof. 11 And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, within and without shalt thou overlay it, and shalt make upon it a crown of gold round about.
THE.ARK_ JEFF.IN V-26 N-18 SUNDAY_ Notice, put a crown on it. Why? It was the king. What did that gold crown laying on top of a box mean? It meant that here, with that gold laying over it, humanity was covered with gold. Blood sprinkled on top of it, and a crown laying on that.
THE.ARK_ JEFF.IN V-26 N-18 SUNDAY_ What a perfect type of Christ and His Deity, His love. He come forth into the world and laid Himself over humanity, His Church, His believers. Upon that, He sprinkled His own Blood, and will save "whosoever will." And two Angels beat out of gold, and the wings pointing across each other at the mercy seat, where every believer come, confessing his sins, receive reconciliation for his sin.
THE.ARK_ JEFF.IN V-26 N-18 SUNDAY_ There He is. Now, look at Him. The gold crown, does that represent Christ? Yes. When Christ was here on earth, He was crowned with a crown of thorns to shed the Blood. That's right. But every believer that comes through that shed Blood, pulls forth that crown of thorns and crowns Him with the glory of praises and honor.
THE.ARK_ JEFF.IN V-26 N-18 SUNDAY_ Every believer that steps into His Presence, accepts that Blood from His pressed brow here with thorns, and crowns Him with glory and praises and majesty, as King of kings, as Healer, as Alpha, Omega, as the Beginning and Ending, as the Counselor, the Prince of Peace, the mighty God, the everlasting Father.
HEBREWS 2 6 But one in a certain place testified, saying, What is man, that thou art mindful of him? or the son of man, that thou visitest him? 7 Thou madest him a little lower than the angels; thou crownedst him with glory and honour, and didst set him over the works of thy hands: 8 Thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that he put all in subjection under him, he left nothing that is not put under him. But now we see not yet all things put under him.
HEBREWS 2 9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man. 10 For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.
GALATIANS 3:13 13 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:
SIRS.WE.WOULD.SEE.JESUS_ JEFF.IN V-3 N-23 SUNDAY_ When that Man Himself left the heavens, when the entire solar system was His crown--every billion stars that hung in the earth, every star, that millions of miles beyond... When they--you look through that glass out yonder at Mount Palomar and can see a 120 million years of light space, and all those billions and trillions of stars was in His crown... And He left them to take a crown of thorns. Who would do it? Wonderful. Oh, my.
SIRS.WE.WOULD.SEE.JESUS_ JEFF.IN V-3 N-23 SUNDAY_ Eternal was His robe. He was robed with Eternal Life. He never had a beginning. He never started at Bethlehem, you know, as people try to think He did. He had no beginning. Amen. Robed with Eternal Life, and pushed it aside to take an old, dirty robe of death for you and I.
HEBREWS.CHAPTER.SIX.3_ JEFF.IN HEB SUNDAY_ M His blessed feet has never touched the earth yet. There He stands there, in the air; and the saints and redeemed from all ages, through every watch, first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, and seventh, all stand there robed in His righteousness; we crown Him the King of king and the Lord of lords, and sing those redemption stories. Our poor hearts will quiver as we look upon Him who loved us and gave Himself for us. While we were unlovable and sinners, Christ died that we might be saved.
IT.WASN'T.SO.FROM.THE.BEGINNING_ SHREVEPORT.LA SUNDAY_ M E-13 Then in that great field somewhere between here and glory when we crown Him King of king and Lord of lords, and Angels stand with bowed heads not knowing what we're doing... They never was lost like we were. And when we sing the songs that He redeemed us, what a glorious time that'll be. We're looking forward for that time. May our hearts be prepared.
THE.FIRST.SEAL_ JEFF.IN MONDAY_ Nicolaitane doctrine become a man; then they could crown it. They couldn't do it because he was just a doctrine. Glory. Notice, and when this Holy Spirit that we have, becomes incarnate to us, the One that's in our midst now in the form of the Holy Ghost, becomes incarnate to us in the Person of Jesus Christ, we'll crown Him King of king...?... That's right. See?
THE.INDICTMENT_ JEFF.IN V-3 N-19 SUNDAY_ M 289 Think of it. His hardest pierces comes from the pulpit. That's where His new Calvary is at. They crucify Him, the Word, at the pulpit. That's right. How, how'd they do it? By their forms of godliness. That's exactly! 290 Crowned from the audience, by scoffers! He's got a new crown of thorns, scoffers! Pierced from the pulpit; crowned by the scoffers. Is He crucified again, afresh? Striped by man-made creeds, teachers of denomination against His Word. They stripe It, in shame, condemn It.
THE.INDICTMENT_ JEFF.IN V-3 N-19 SUNDAY_ M 291 Jesus said, "In vain they worship Me." In vain, "don't do no good." Who they worship? They worship that same God. They was worshipping that same God at His first crucifixion, and it was vain worship. It's the same thing today. In vain they build these denominations. In vain they build these seminaries. In vain they have these creeds, teaching for doctrine the commandments of man, and denying the Word of God. They're guilty of crucifying the Prince of Life, teaching man's doctrines for His Word. "In vain they worship Me," striped, pierced, crowned.
THE.INDICTMENT_ JEFF.IN V-3 N-19 SUNDAY_ M 292 When you see that go down the street, and some of you ladies with long hair; say, "She is old-fashion, isn't she?" Remember, that's scoffers, that's the crown that you're wearing. God said it was your glory; wear it with pride. Hallelujah! Wear it with pride, as you would wear a crown of thorns for your Lord. Wear it with pride. Don't be ashamed. He said so, no matter what these Jezebels says today. What these impostors stand in the pulpit, crucifiers of Christ, no matter what they say, you wear it with pride. God said so. You keep it.
THE.INDICTMENT_ JEFF.IN V-3 N-19 SUNDAY_ M 293 Crowned, with scoffers again, thorns. Pierced from the pulpit, with creeds. 294 He got a new Golgotha, where they take Him to: these robed choirs, short-wearing women, bobbed-haired, painted-face, singing in the choir like Angels, with talents. That's His new Golgotha, just modern stripteases protected by a law, like at Sodom and Gomorrah.
JAMES 1 12 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.
133-1 SMYRNAEAN.CHURCH.AGE - CHURCH.AGE.BOOK CPT.4 In I Corinthians 9:24, Paul says, "Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run that ye may obtain." A crown given to the winner of the Olympic race was a garland of olive branches. But the crown spoken of here in the Revelation, given to a martyr, is the crown of royalty. Jesus calls it the crown of life.
133-1 SMYRNAEAN.CHURCH.AGE - CHURCH.AGE.BOOK CPT.4 The one crown is for those who have striven; the other is for those who have given. Both crowns are incorruptible. They will not perish. The winners of the worldly race of life will soon lose the joy of the plaudits of the world. Their glory will fail. But those who give their lives for God, either by daily striving or shedding their blood as the crowning sacrifice of their lives will be given the crown of life.
A.DOOR.IN.A.DOOR_ TUCSON.AZ SATURDAY_ What if the president would say, "I'll make... I come to take you, and I have the authority to do so, and make you the president of the United States"? You--you have to give it up sometime. What if the queen wanted to make you queen of England, and you wear the crown? It, you'd have to give it up. 122 But Jesus gives us a crown of Life, that we never give up, incorruptible crown of His Glory. And we don't have to give It up. He gives It to us. It's a blessing. It's the Holy Spirit, that He wants to crown our life with.
E - The Flashing Red Light Of The Sign Of His Coming 165 O God, I know I… Give me grace to never complain. And I want my life, Lord, I want my people's life… God, grant that our life could be crowned, no matter if we suffer, whatever takes place, how many turns against me.
E - The Flashing Red Light Of The Sign Of His Coming 166 And I know that someday I've got to die. I hope that God never lets Satan crown me as an old crabbed, indifferent man, and my wife an old nagging woman, or your wife, or you that way. I pray, brother, that our lives will be crowned with the fruits of the Spirit; love, joy, long-suffering, gentleness, patience, Truth, faith, in the Holy Spirit.
Present Stage Of My Ministry 138 How many Christians are in the Way tonight, in here, that are happy that you started a long time ago? Done made your start, and way down along the road, still coming down towards the end. I pray that God will crown your ministry, whatever it is. It may be a housewife. I pray that God will crown your ministry. It may be a preacher. It may be a deacon. It may be a lay member. It may be a farmer. I don't know what it is. Whatever it is, may God crown your life with the glory of His Word, and His Second Coming rapture you and take you away into another Land...
