Verse By Verse Through Revelation (3:11-15)

crown-of-life

11 I am coming quickly. Hold on to what you have, so that no one takes your crown.

Crown here refers to one who overcomes or is victorious. The phrase “Hold on to what you have” means not to let anyone deceive you through a false gospel.


12 The victor: I will make him a pillar in the sanctuary of My God, and he will never go out again. I will write on 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.

The victor are those with true faith in Jesus who overcame the lust and desires of this world.

The phrase “I will make him a pillar in the sanctuary of My God” means that no believer will ever have the possibility to lose their place in the new earth but will be with the Lord forever.

By having God’s name and His city written on us refers that we have access to His presence and His new home will be ours (Revelation 21:1-3) as well.


13 “Anyone who has an ear should listen to what the Spirit says to the churches.

The letters or the Book of Revelation that the churches are receiving are very important.


14 “Write to the angel of the church in Laodicea:
“The Amen, the faithful and true Witness, the Originator of God’s creation says:

The key words: “The Amen, the faithful and true Witness” all refer to Jesus and concludes that all creation came into existence because of Him (John 1:3, Colossians 1:16).


15 I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish that you were cold or hot.

The church members in Laodicea were compromising their faith in Jesus Christ.

Hot or cold refers to a person’s decision in either obeying the Lord or rejecting His Word. God detests a person who plays both sides.

  1. Hi Spaniard,

    Great post! Jesus is the force of compassion, healing-mercy and loving-kindness and the victor is the one in him. Buddha preceded Jesus. He practised a loving-kindness meditation every day and sought to live this out in his relations to others. But Buddha was not Jesus. Jesus alone has triumphed over the power of evil. Buddha was a forerunner of Jesus. There was no” demon possession” with Buddha. Loving-kindness is not demon possession

    The victor will participate in God’s new earth serving Jesus as will Buddha also be serving Jesus.

    Many thanks for your post, Spaniard.

    Shalom,

    John Arthur

    1. Buddha is not in heaven but in hell. He chose to seek his own path instead of seeking the God of scripture.

      Salvation belongs to the Lord and apart from Him no one can be saved.

      Buddha believed in a demonic doctrine of self salvation and self peace. No peace can exist without believing in the true God who is revealed in scripture.
