Under election, God wills the highest and best for every believer.

As a loving Father or the Father of love He willed for you to have the highest and best He has to offer.

(1) The crown of righteousness. (2)  The crown of life. (3)  The incorruptible crown. (4)  The crown of rejoicing. (5)  The crown of glory.

Some will have the crown of righteousness for loving his appearing or being totally occupied with TLJC and producing divine good, 2TI 4:8.

Some will have the crown of life for enduring trials, heartaches, disasters and coming out glorifying the Lord, JAM 1:12,REV 2:10.

JAM 1:12   Blessed is a man who perseveres under trial; for once he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life, which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.

Some will have the incorruptible crown for mastering their O.S.N. 1CO 9:24-27.

Some will have the crown of rejoicing for being soul winners, 1TH 2:19  For who is our hope or joy or crown of exultation? Is it not even you, in the presence of our Lord Jesus at His coming?

Some will have the crown of glory for being willing to feed the flock of God, 1PE 5:4.

The ultimate decoration:  The order of the morning star.

The winner receives this decoration and others that go with it.

REV 2:26,28, “Furthermore, the winner, even he who keeps my assignments [execution of the pre-designed plan of God] until the end [perpetuation of spiritual maturity through evidence testing], to him I will give authority over the nations.”

Verse 28, “Furthermore I will give to him the order of the morning star.”

When God the Father completed this work of election in eternity past He said in effect, “it is finished,” because everything you would ever need as a Christian was provided.

The purpose of election only becomes apparent when living in the PPOG under the ministry of the Spirit, and by hearing correct and accurate Bible teaching so that we become inculcated with the pre-designed plan.

TIT 3:7 “That being justified by His grace, we might become heirs on the basis of the confidence of eternal life.”

EPH 1:11  “In Whom also we have received an inheritance, having been predestined with reference to a predetermined plan [PPOG] from Him who works all things in conformity with the purpose of His will.
