Pride or Glory

Woe to the proud crown of the drunkards of Ephraim, and to the fading flower of its glorious beauty, which is at the head of the fertile valley of those who are overcome with wine! Isaiah 28:1

And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the unfading crown of glory. 1Pe.5:4

She (wisdom) will place on your head a garland of grace; she will present you with a crown of beauty. Prov.4:9

For who is our hope or joy or crown of exultation? It is not even you, in the presence of our Lord Jesus at His coming? For you are our glory and joy. 1Thes.2:19-20

In that day the LORD of hosts will become a beautiful crown and a glorious diadem to the remnant of His people…Isaiah 28:5

Jesus….. crowned with glory and honor…. Heb.2:9

Those in the Church wearing the proud crown are on one side of the Plumbline. Those wearing the glorious crown are on the other. The crown of pride is worn by the leaders of the apostate man created Harlot False Church, and by many multitudes in apostacy therein. The Thing they have created for themselves is now a fading flower, its “beauty” tarnished. The fertile valley has dried out and is dead. They are drunk on false doctrine; they are overcome with the wine of the false prophet’s lies. They are quite proud of themselves though. They honor and exalt themselves. They desire the things that give them pride. They glory in their life, flesh, prosperity and success. They are crowned with the fading crown of their prideful works of the flesh.

But the crown of glory is worn by those who love and long for Lord Jesus. It is worn by those who love the wisdom of God, who fear the Lord, who hold fast His words, who keep His commandments. It is worn by those who love and abide in the truth. It is worn by those who joyfully and diligently labor over others who will be in the presence of our Lord Jesus at His coming. It is worn by those whose desire is the beautiful and glorious LORD of hosts. They desire Jesus. It is worn by those who treasure and glory in our Lord Jesus Christ our Savior. It is worn by those who humbly bow before Jesus who is crowned with glory and honor: Jesus who humbled Himself through suffering, that by the grace of God He might taste death for us. He is crowned with glory and honor, and His people are crowned with Him.

  1. Nice work sister!
    The church Jesus is building, and the gates of hell can not prevail against, never had any tares in it, never was apostate, never has been corrupt in any way, never needed to be “Reformed” either. He alone builds His church, and He alone is Head of it. We are added by Him, and kept by Him. We are in one accord, because He is Lord, and He leads us, that is His body, the living stones! No teaching goats to act like sheep here!
    Therefore anything that has any of the problems of laity/clergy or has tares or is one of 38,000 denominations/divisions or is lead by a state certified preacher is something other then His church.
    In His church men function as elders and teachers, and are not placed in offices by men.
    Jesus is enough…we don’t need buildings and programs and safe things for the kids et al…that is for the Great Whore, and her 38,000 daughters!
    Now do you think any of them could see this?
    I appreciate you sister!

    • Ya thats right Mickey “Reformation” is just another play on words that comes about by man dialectic to a consensus. (of the sensuous) IE “fellings” Lets reform Gods church then we will get a great sensuous dopamine rush, and God will be so pleased that we did this for Him.

      The two evils pitted against each other universalism and reformation, what could go wrong with that house on fire? LOL

      Thank you for your fine work Loretta.

  2. John 7:18

    You’re absolutely right and if someone thinks that he is righteous and does not have the Word of God in him, he is a liar. men seek their own glory and end up with filthy rags. praise God that his glory is our inheritance, for those who are washed in his blood
