Thought of the Day October 19, 2017 Eternal rewards

By 9:42 AM

The Spirit is given to us that we may become victorious conquerors over all that would prevent us from experiencing the fuller life promised and given by Jesus. Paul says in Romans 8:37: "Yet in all this we are more than conquerors because of him who has loved us." In the Book of Revelation we are told that Jesus will reward the one who is victorious. "I will see to it that the victor eats from the tree of life which grows in the garden of God"(Rev 2:7). "The victor shall never be harmed by the second death" (Rev 2:11). "To the victor I will give the hidden manna. I will also give him a white stone upon which is inscribed a new name, to be known only by him who receives it" (Rev 2:17). "I will give authority over the nations--the same authority I received from my Father. He shall rule them with a rod of iron and shatter them like crockery; and I will give him the morning star" (Rev 2:26-28). "The victor shall go clothed in white. I will never erase his name from the book of the living, but will acknowledge him in the presence of my Father and his angels" (Rev 3:5). "I will make the victor a pillar in the temple of my God and he shall never leave it. I will inscribe on him the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem which he will send down from heaven and my own name which is new" (Rev 3:12). "I will give the victor the right to sit with me on my throne, as I myself won the victory and took my seat beside my Father on his throne" (Rev 3:21). "To anyone who thirsts I will give to drink without cost from the spring of life-giving water. He who wins the victory shall inherit these gifts. I will be his God and he shall be my son" (Rev 21: 6-7).
