A White Stone

Wow! Considering this.

A supreme bit of intimacy this -- that we will have a name given to us by God known only to us.
Everyone who overcomes will have this hidden name and this hidden manna. It doesn't say that everyone who is a Christian will get it...just those who live in the great tribulation and overcome the trials during this great tribulation.

So, let's say we really are living at the end of time -- which i totally believe...and am totally amazed at how clueless Bible-believing Christians are about how weird this year's gonna be and how apocalyptical events are gonna be. But I digress.

So if I overcome, I will have this special name. And all those who overcome will have this special love name given to us...intimately known between us and God, used only when we talk to God alone and intimately throughout the ages. I suppose we will probably forget the name as soon as we leave his presence...or else -- being humans-- we'd be tempted to say, "Hey, know what my secret name is!" But whatever it, the idea of this unique intimacy, this unique relationship with God our bridegroom.... WOW!

Revelation 2:17
He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; 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 saving he that receiveth it.
