Promises from Jesus to a Christian

We as Christians don’t have reason to be discouraged even in the midst of adversity, persecution or even death. We have promises from our Saviour and Lord Jesus Christ. He said “To him who overcomes:

  • I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God (see Revelations 2:7)
  • Will not be hurt at all by the second death (v11)
  • I will give some of the hidden manna. I will also give him a white stone with a new name written on it, known only to him who receives it (v17)
  • I will give authority over the nations— ‘He will rule them with an iron scepter; he will dash them to pieces like pottery’— just as I have received authority from my Father. I will also give him the morning star. (v26-28)
  • They will walk with me, dressed in white, for they are worthy. He who overcomes will, like them, be dressed in white. I will never blot out his name from the book of life, but will acknowledge his name before my Father and his angels. (3:4-5)
  • I will make a pillar in the temple of my God. Never again will he leave it. I will write on him the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which is coming down out of heaven from my God; and I will also write on him my new name. (v12)
  • I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I overcame and sat down with my Father on his throne. (v21)

These promises may look farfetched to us, but we will definitely get each and every one of them, only if we overcome.
