Revelation 3:21


21 To him [autos] that overcometh [nikao] will I grant [didomi] to sit [kathizo] with [meta] me [emou] in [en] my [mou] throne, [thronos] even [kago] as [hos] I also [kago] overcame, [nikao] and [kai] am set down [kathizo] with [meta] my [mou] Father [pater] in [en] his [autos] throne. [thronos]    KJV-Interlinear

21 'He who overcomes, 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.    NASB

Verses 18, 19, 20, and 21 all come together to form a picture of the spiritual life.Verse 18 shows the vast blessings that are available.  Verse 19 requires you to change your attitude.  Verse 20 calls for you to confess and live in a state of fellowship. And verse 21, calls for believers to overcome, or advance to spiritual maturity.

To overcome, ‘nikao,’ means to conquer, prevail, to accomplish a long hard fought victory.  This is a sequential or chronological accomplishment and not a momentary single event, but a series.  In the previous letters to the churches (except for one), this generally referred to the believer who was successful in attaining spiritual maturity, and staying there.  And again, that is the same connotation used here.

However, this being the final letter to the churches, and the final church representing the most departed from Christianity, in apostasy, Christ lists the most spectacular blessing promise of all of the blessings.

And that promise being, that the spiritually mature believer will be invited to sit down with Him (Christ), on His throne.This is not an invitation to sit on a similar throne, or on another throne, or on a throne nearby, but to share His throne, for all of eternity.  This is an invitation of promotion and possession of that right.

This promise is made here, in this verse, in the Bible, and nowhere else.

The mother of James and John requested for them, a place on the right hand and the left of Jesus - the highest dignity which she thought possible. The twelve apostles were promised to sit on twelve thrones, to judge the tribes of Israel.  

But Christ offers here a yet another and higher honor, to sit in His throne, placing us in the closest relationship with Himself, and exalting us to His own glory.This is the highest possible honor extended to anyone, ever.

Satan wanted to be like the most high, and tried to take that honor by deceit and force.He failed.

Christians who advance to spiritual maturity, by merely reading words written on paper, and living a decent Christian life, in obedience to Christ, will receive a much higher honor.  And they will have that honor forever.

By seating on His throne, comes ‘beyond imaginable’ possibilities, none of which are, or ever will be, tainted by evil arrogant selfish motives.

The throne of God is the highest position of sovereignty and authority in all that exists.  There is no higher position or authority or honor.

So, from the lowest position of spiritual failure and indifference, God reminds us that what is on the line and in danger of being thrown away, is the highest and greatest blessing of them all.

What kind of person would simply ignore that kind of loss?Only a fool.

And how many people will actually advance in their spiritual life and receive this blessing?  Very few.

The big question is, ‘Will you be one of them?’
