The Crown of Thorns
Your spiritual condition is determined by your reaction to the message of the cross (1Cor.1:18)
Message of the cross is foolishness to those who perish
Message of the cross is the power of God to those who are being saved
Peter’s attitude toward the cross revealed his shallowness (Mt.16)
Two things will work in your life: the power and the principle of the cross
There is no crown without a cross (Abraham, Jacob, Joseph, David)
Cross needs to be behind us as well as in front of us
The pillar of cloud went before and after them
Cross in your past means, cross triumphs over your past and your past is dead
Cross will do no good to you if don’t gaze upon it (Num.21)
Remember blood not pharaoh
Remember Me not your sin
Jonah is the only prophet Jesus related Himself with (Mt.12:39-42)
Jonah 2:5 “…weeds were wrapped around my head…”
A crown of thorns insulted Jesus (Mt.27:29, 30)
A crown of gold would exalt a person but a crown of thorns would insult a person
A crown of gold – prince; a crown of thorns – victim
A crown represents our mind
What we feel and do comes from what we think
You are what your head is filled with (Prov.23:7)
You think you are a victim, you feel like a victim, you become a victim, and you act like a victim
Sin starts with your mind so is your transformation (Rom.12:2)
Bad thinking insults you because you are that what you think and you will act what you think
A crown of thorns injured Jesus
Thorn is as sharp as pin and as strong as a bone
The fall of man produced thorns (Gen.3:18)
A crown of thorns wasn’t necessary for salvation from sin
A crown consisted of many thorns: anxiety, depression, condemnation, guilt, pessimism, and lust
Trade a crown of thorns for crown of life (Jam.1:12)
