71. That the Lord alone will give the happy things of eternal life to those who are and will be of His church is evident from these passages:
The Lord said to the church of Ephesus, To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God (Rev. 2:7).
Unto the church in Smyrna, I will give thee a crown of life. He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death (Rev. 2:10-11).
Unto the church in Pergamos, To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new* name written, which no man knoweth but he that receiveth it (Rev. 2:17).
Unto the church in Thyatira, To him will I give power over the nations, and I will give him the morning star (Rev. 2:26, 28).
Unto the church in Philadelphia, Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of My God; and I will write upon him the name of My God, the name of the New Jerusalem, and My new name (Rev. 3:12).
Unto the church in Laodicea, To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with Me in my throne (Rev. 3:21).
From these passages it is also evident, that the Lord alone is acknowledged in the New Church. Hence it is that this church is called the Lamb's wife (Rev. 19:7, 9; 21:9-10).
* The original Latin has "meum" ("my") for "novum" ("new").
