Uncommon Crown

Jesus came to establish His Kingdom in our hearts

Isaiah 9:6 – For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder…

Pharisees - Sadducees - Zealots - Essenes

Isaiah 9:6 – …and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor…

The world needs a Wonderful Counselor

Mark 12:15-17 – But, knowing their hypocrisy, he said to them, “Why put me to the test? Bring me a denarius and let me look at it.” And they brought one. And he said to them, “Whose likeness and inscription is this?” They said to him, “Caesar's.” Jesus said to them, “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's.” And they marveled at him.

We are Heavenly citizens temporarily living in earthly nations

The Gospel is that we are all broken by sin but can be healed by the Savior

Joshua 5:13-15 – When Joshua was by Jericho, he lifted up his eyes and looked, and behold, a man was standing before him with his drawn sword in his hand. And Joshua went to him and said to him, “Are you for us, or for our adversaries?” And he said, “No; but I am the commander of the army of the Lord. Now I have come.” And Joshua fell on his face to the earth and worshiped and said to him, “What does my lord say to his servant?” And the commander of the Lord's army said to Joshua, “Take off your sandals from your feet, for the place where you are standing is holy.” And Joshua did so.

Luke 2:11 – For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.

We cannot have the Messiah without the Lord attached
