The Bible says in Revelation 3:12 NLT – All who are victorious will become pillars in the Temple of my God, and they will never have to leave it. And I will write on them the name of my God, and they will be citizens in the city of my God-the new Jerusalem that comes down from heaven from my God. And I will also write on them my new name.
This passage is written to the church of Philadelphia who it says had little strength but continued to be obedient to God’s Word and did not deny Jesus (v8). In this short passage there is some encouragement that gives us a future hope.
1. Being obedient to God’s Word and not denying Jesus is the key to being victorious, if you do…
2. You will become pillars in the temple of God
3. You will have the name of God written on you
4. You will become citizens of God’s city, the new Jerusalem
5. God will write a new name on you
If we continue to follow Jesus and live by God’s Word in this life we will live in the New Jerusalem. This is God’s eternal city. That is great news!
