Colossians 2:18-19
Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind, And not holding the Head, from which all the body by joints and bands having nourishment ministered, and knit together, increaseth with the increase of God.

the reward of Heaven..

Is JESUS, it always was! [Smile]

In speaking of the BEMA seat of the Judgment of Christ, reserved only for believers on His Holy Name;

2 Corinthians 5:10
For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.

The "things done in the body" are either self-centered or Christ Centered.
A believer in Christ still has a choice to submit to Jesus as Lord on a moment by moment basis. And as they do [submit to Christ for Life, by the Grace of God] Jesus Lives His Holy Life in and through them by Grace, through faith.

The Crowns of God are what we [believers] shall each recieve of the Lord's Hand upon standing before Him at the BEMA seat.

  • Crown Incorruptible:

1 Corinthians 9:24-25
Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.

  • Crown of Righteousness:
2 Timothy 4:7-8
I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.

  • Crown of Life:
Revelation 2:10
Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.

  • Crown of Rejoicing:
1 Thessalonians 2:19
For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Are not even ye in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at his coming?

  • Crown of Glory:
1 Peter 5:4
And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.

We, as believers on the Lord Jesus, recieve these 'crowns' based upon what we've allowed Him to do in and through us in this, His Life, by Grace, as only He is worthy.

Revelation 4:10-11
The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying, Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.

--------------------
Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?

But I trust that ye shall know that we are not reprobates.
