Crowns from Every Nation

 Crowns from every nation are being laid at the feet of Jesus, for we live in the times of the conquering King.  Even today, the name of Jesus is being worshipped and celebrated across Europe, the Americas, in sub-Saharan Africa and in Asia and the Pacific.  And according to the promises made to Abraham, there is much much more blessing to come over the nations and the earth because of the Seed of Abraham, the son of Abraham.

We are not anti-Semitic when we say that there are no special privileges for the Jewish people today with God.  We are only saying that the covenant administration which had been accomplished through the Jews is complete.  And the Jews, together with all Gentiles, are welcomed to Jesus Christ if they would simply turn and believe.  There is neither Jew nor Greek, says Paul, but we are one in Christ Jesus.

We are promised that the sons of Abraham will be as many as the stars in the sky and the sand on the seashore. We are also promised that the sons of Abraham are not necessarily ethnic sons, but are sons by faith only, by grace only, through Christ only, and according to the Scriptures only, so that God alone receives all the glory.

All nations, all races, all peoples, all tongues are on level field at the cross.  There are no favorites and there will be no reconciliation of those races without those races being first reconciled to Jesus.  There will be no true peace between nations until those nations are first reconciled to Jesus. 

And so we come to worship King Jesus upon this earth declaring, “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.”  We pray and then we look to see the heavens split open and the world shaken.  For He comes to make His blessings flow far as the curse is found.
