How the Lord shall bless you if you overcome 

New Testament: Rev 3.12

To read the Bible in a year, read Revelation 3 on December 12, In the year of our Lord Christ 2022

By Don Ruhl 

You know the strength of the world to persuade to people follow its ways, but the Lord Jesus teaches us to reject the ways of the world, and if we overcome the world, look at the blessings that he promises us: 

“He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go out no more. I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God, the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God. And I will write on him My new name.”

– Revelation 3.12 

Do not give up the agonizing struggle against the world, but remain loyal to Jesus until the very end, and look at all the blessings that he shall pour out upon you: 

  • You will be a pillar in the temple of God 
  • You shall remain in the temple 
  • Jesus will write on you the name of his God 
  • Jesus will write on you the name of the New Jerusalem 
  • Jesus will write on you his new name 

Remember those blessings. Keep your eyes on Jesus. Look to heaven always, regardless of whether you are doing well or are suffering. Then experience the ultimate blessings. 

Questions: 

  • How often do you think of Jesus? 
  • Are you trying to get others to join you on your journey to heaven?
