Triple Crown Him!

Updated: May 27, 2023


Throughout mountains, hills, and valleys; within oceans, meadows, and countless plains...within cracks, between rocks, in trees, mid-sky, and in seas dance millions of breathtaking flowers in perfect symphony. In nature's ballgowns resplendent with heaven's beauty, they bow and curtsy, they sing and praise, their fragrance gently caresses and their ointments as incense, prayer, and praise.


Have you ever thought that in the Bible flowers are important for more than their beauty (Luke 12:27) and fragrance (Song of Solomon 1:12, 4:14)? They tell the gospel in a variety of ways. Every spring and through-out the year, perennials from East and West, North and South tells different parts of the gospel. From the love of God, to the fall of man... the life of Christ and His resurrection. Yet today, the message from God's Edenic garden comes from a very prominent feature of most flowers that is not always focused on even though quite visible.

Many florists spend time creating wreaths and garlands from multiple flowers to decorate doors, tables, and even the heads of brides and grooms, queens, and kings!

Yet each flower in and of itself is already a mini crown! In Latin, the word for crown is "coronaria" and many romantic botanists emphasized "the crowns" of flowers which "elegances" their beauty and majesty. King Charles III, Britain's newest monarch in 70 years, who was recently coronated on May 6, 2023, at Westminister Abbey in London, England, dressed in all his pump and pride still could hold no candle to the artless, gorgeous crowns scattered worldwide in God's majestic landscapes: flowers with single crowns like the Rose of Sharon (Hibiscus syriacus); double crowns like the Hoya coronaria Blume; a trumpet-shaped crown like the Hymenocallis coronaria, a windswept crown like the Anemone coronaria, and those like the striking bell-shaped, Turkish Fritillaria imperialis, also called the Imperial Crown.

Every flower, from its petals to its throat tells us an exciting part of the gospel, the great controversy between God and Satan. It reminds us of the end of the story after the famed resurrection, that Christ has risen and is King!!! Jesus is to be the King of every human being but more so Lord and king of each Christian's heart! Gardens should remind us that Christ has died to restore our place in the Heavenly Eden and that after His resurrection, He had a grand coronation...


I believe that when the angels in Acts 1: 6-11 escorted Jesus to Heaven, there was a double coronation: When He entered Heaven, He was coronated and the Holy Spirit's power spilled over from His coronation and crowned His waiting disciples who had been praying for love, unity, power, and a sound mind, full of God's wisdom! 2 Timothy 1:7. He wants to also crown us with the Holy Spirit full of truth and fruit so that we too will crown Him as Lord. Alleluia! Crown Him!


The words of the famous hymn written by Matthew Bridges and Godfrey Thring and sung to Diademata's tune by Sir George Job Elvey, urge us to sing:


Crown him with many crowns,

The Lamb upon his throne;

Hark! how the heavenly anthem drowns

All music but its own:

Awake, my soul, and sing

Of him who died for thee,

And hail him as thy matchless king

Through all eternity.


My friend, Is Christ the King of your life? Crown Him! Is He King of your heart? Crown Him! God is King is King of kings, Master and creator of everything! Crown Him! Crown Him! Crown Him!



I pray for you a wonderful day

in the love of the Lord!
