7 Victories

I was reading of the seven churches in the book of Revelation (ch. 1 - 3). At the end of talking to each of the churches a specific victory is mentioned...

These are victories for us as Christians:

1.) The right to eat from the tree of life. (Ephesus)

2.) Will never be harmed by the second death. (Smyrna)

3.) Some of the hidden manna. A white stone, and on the stone a new name is inscribed that no one knows except the one who receives it. (Pergamum)

4.) Will be given authority over the nations. (Thyatira)

5.) Will be dressed in white clothes, his name will never be erased from the book of life, but will be acknowledged before the Father. (Sardis)

6.) Will be made a pillar in the sanctuary of God. (Philadelphia)

7.) The right to sit on the Throne. (Laodicea)

Herein, lies the secret of victorious, and Heavenly, living! These are all great victories/rewards! These are victories, the Christian, can expect to have.

The way to obtain these victories, is found within the passage. We just have to dig a little deeper...
