Primary Will Of Our Heavenly Father:Joh 6:28-29. Then they said to Him, What shall we do that we might do the works (will) of God? Jesus answered and said to them, this is the work of God that you believe on Him whom He has sent. Joh 6:39. And this is the will of the Father who sent Me, that of all which He has given Me I should lose nothing but should raise it up again at the last day. Matt: 28:19-20. And Jesus came and spoke to them (after he had risen), saying, all authority is given to Me in Heaven and in earth.Therefore go and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
Eternal Rewards:By extension, the eternal implications of the above scriptures are encapsulated in the understanding of the Five Crowns. The crowns translate into the rewards of the saints, which in turn equate positionally to what the saints will do, and be, for all eternity.
A Crown of Rejoicing ~ for those winning souls.1 Thes 2:19, 20 …for what is our hope or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Are you (Thessalonians) not even to be in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at His coming? For you are our glory and joy.
A Never-Fading Crown of Glory ~ for those who willingly feed the flock of God allotted to them.1 Pet 5:2-4 …feed the flock of God among you, taking the oversight, not by compulsion, but willingly; nor for base gain, but readily; nor as lording it over those allotted to you by God, but becoming examples to the flock. And when the Chief Shepherd shall appear, you shall ll receive a never-fading crown of glory.
An Incorruptible Crown ~ for those who are temperate (self-controlled) in all things.1 Cor 9:25. (RSV) Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable (crown).
A Crown of Life ~ for those who endure temptation & trials and love the Lord Jesus Christ.Jam 1:12 …blessed is the man who endures temptation, because having been approved, he will receive the crown of life, which the Lord has promised to those who love Him. Rev 2:10 …do not at all fear what you are about to suffer. Behold, the Devil will cast some of you into prison, so that you may be tried. And you will have tribulation ten days. Be faithful to death, and I will give you the crown of life.
A Crown of Righteousness ~ for all those who love His appearing.2 Tim 4:8 …now there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, shall give me at that Day; and not to me only, but also to all those who love His appearing.
Jesus Has Many CrownsRev 19:12. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
