Revelation 21:7 – Those who are victorious will inherit all this, and I will be their
God and they will be my children.
In Revelation 21:7, Christ makes a promise to those who successfully overcome: “He who
overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son.”
Temptations and trials come to all believers, but through faith in Christ believers can
overcome each solicitation to do evil and every trial. Paul assured the believers at Rome, “No,
in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us” (Romans 8:37).
He wrote in 2 Corinthians 2:14, “But thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in
triumphal procession.” The apostle John, too, identified believers as overcomers. In 1 John
4:1–3 he wrote that many false prophets, including the spirit of the antichrist, had gone into
the world, but he said, “Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he
who is in you is greater than he who is in the world” (1 John 4:4).
Those who are victorious are among the overcomers to whom the Lord promises an
inheritance in the eternal city and an intimate relationship with himself.
Revelation shows us that “Job One” for a Christian is overcoming. This is the message in Luke
21:36 also: We have to overcome to be with Him in God’s Kingdom. Salvation itself hinges on
our cooperation with Him in overcoming (Matthew 25:30).
Temptations and trials come to all believers, but through faith in Christ we can overcome
each solicitation to do evil and every trial.
GET TO KNOW YOUR MASTER, HE IS GOOD!
