Seven Crowns Of The Lamb Part 1: POWER
| Spiry Tee
“....Worthy is the Lamb who was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom, and strength and honor and glory and blessing!”
Revelation 5:12 NKJV.
A crown represents a position of privilege, authority or sovereignty. To be crowned means to be ethroned or be invested with regal power.
After Jesus humbled Himself unto death, even the death of the cross, the Father responded by awarding Jesus with "crowns". He was given many crowns so that He might become head over all things for our benefit as His body and beloved. John in his record of the glorified Christ said, "His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself." (Revelation 19:12 NKJV).
Many crowns means that every department of the universe, of both the seen and the unseen worlds, was given to Jesus. All dimensions of the supernatural are coalesced in one Man, Christ Jesus.
After what I regard as the greatest spectacle in prophetic literature, the hosts of heaven proclaimed with a loud voice, that God was just in awarding Jesus with many crowns for He is worthy of them all (Revelation 5:1-7).
When no one was found worthy to open the book of judgements, only the Lamb of God could. Only He who was found to be without sin, the perfect specimen of what God looks like, sounds like, and acts like; the only one who was, with accuracy, able to represent and reflect the nature of God to both heaven and earth.
As they praised, they mentioned seven crowns of the Lamb. The first one is power. This power is not electrical or political, it's far beyond that. It is called dunamis meaning miraculous power; the power which when its force is exerted on anything, change is inevitable. By that power He rules in heaven above and on earth below. He exercises dominion over demons, darkness, sickness and death. That is the same power that keeps Him young and empowers Him to live and remain forever.
Knowing this, to remember that in Him I am a partaker of the divine nature makes for a celebration. The power that Jesus received from God, He has poured out on us through the Holy Spirit; "But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” (Acts 1:8 NKJV).
We carry miracle working power to change any situation in our lives and the lives of many others who will receive from us in the name of the Lord. The power to heal sicknesses, the power to stay healthy in our physical bodies, and power to live and remain until the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, is resident in us by the Holy Spirit.
I am a partaker of the crowns of the Lamb. Power to cause changes even in naturally impossible situations is available to me by the Holy Spirit.
