21:7"He who overcomes shall inherit these things, and I will be his God and he will be My son.

"He who OVERCOMES shall inherit these THINGS,

What "THINGS" will be inherited? We have a start on the list from the "OVERCOMERS" of the seven churches:


"I will grant to eat of the tree of life, which is in the Paradise of God."


Revelation 2:7

This is the same tree of life seen in Revelation 22:2.

"(He) shall not be hurt by the second death".


Revelation 2:11

See the next verse for what the second death is.

"to him I will give some of the hidden manna, and I will give him a white stone, and a new name written on the stone which no one knows but he who receives it."


Revelation 2:17

Even Christ has a name which no one know except Himself (Revelation 19:12)

"to him, I will give the authority over the nations; and he shall rule them with a rod of iron, as the vessels of the potter are broken to pieces, as I also have received authority from My Father; and I will give him the morning star."


Revelation 2:26-28

We will reign forever (Revelation 22:5)

"(he) shall thus be clothed in white garments; and I will not erase his name from the book of life, and I will confess his name before My Father, and before His angels."


Revelation 3:5

White garments denote purity and righteousness....this is appropriate dress for bondservants who will serve him forever. (Revelation 22:3)

"I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he will not go out anymore; and I will write upon 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 My new name."


Revelation 3:12

Face to face and with His name (Revelation 22:4)

"I will grant to him to sit down with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne."


Revelation 3:21

The new dwelling place that we will have still contains the Throne, and we will be happy to serve God and the Lamb (Revelation 22:3)

and I will be his God and he will be My son.

The transition is complete with every believer, Jew and non-Jew, moving from the old earth/heaven to their new home. With this simple phrase, we become part of the eternal family just as the Bible said we would (Romans 8:12-17, Galatians 4:1-7, and 1 Peter 1:3-4-9). We finally will experience the completion of our faith (Romans 3:21-30), will get to see God (John 1:14-18), will be able to look at His Face (Psalm 24:3-6), and will be able to revel in His Presence (this verse).
