Those who are victorious in Christ will find their name in the book of life.
He that overcometh the same shall be clothed in white raiment and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life but I will confess his name before my Father and before his angels.
The faithful church.
Because thou hast kept the word of my patience I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation which shall come upon all the world to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold I come quickly hold that fast which thou hast that no man take thy crown.
If anyone hears My voice and opens the door I will come in to him and dine with him and he with Me.
Behold I stand at the door and knock if any man hear my voice and open the door I will come in to him and will sup with him and he with me.
In a beautiful mix of images, the Lamb has always been the Shepherd.
For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.
God will vindicate those who are persecuted
And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven saying Alleluia Salvation and glory and honour and power unto the Lord our God For true and righteous are his judgments for he hath judged the great whore which did corrupt the earth with her fornication and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand. And again they said Alleluia And her smoke rose up for ever and ever.
The final age to come focuses not on a platonic ideal heaven or distant paradise but on the reality of a new earth and heaven.
And I saw a new heaven and a new earth for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city new Jerusalem coming down from God out of heaven prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying Behold the tabernacle of God is with men and he will dwell with them and they shall be his people and God himself shall be with them and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes and there shall be no more death neither sorrow nor crying neither shall there be any more pain for the former things are passed away.
Our future in heaven.
And there shall be no more curse but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it and his servants shall serve him And they shall see his face and his name shall be in their foreheads. And there shall be no night there and they need no candle neither light of the sun for the Lord God giveth them light and they shall reign for ever and ever.
The Lord is coming back and he will give to us according to what we have done.
And behold I come quickly and my reward is with me to give every man according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega the beginning and the end the first and the last. Blessed are they that do his commandments that they may have right to the tree of life and may enter in through the gates into the city.
