5The one who conquers will be clothed thus in white garments, and I will never blot his name out of the book of life. I will confess his name before my Father and before his angels.5Like them, he who overcomes will be dressed in white. And I will never blot out his name from the Book of Life, but I will confess his name before My Father and His angels.

I will make them come and bow down at your feet, and they will know that I love you.
10Because you have kept my word about patient endurance, I will keep you from the hour of trial that is coming on the whole world, to try those who dwell on the earth.10Because you have kept My command to endure with patience, I will also keep you from the hour of testing that is about to come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth.

15“‘I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were either cold or hot!15I know your deeds; you are neither cold nor hot. How I wish you were one or the other!
16So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth.16So because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to vomit you out of My mouth!
17For you say, I am rich, I have prospered, and I need nothing, not realizing that you are wretched, pitiable, poor, blind, and naked.17You say, ’I am rich; I have grown wealthy and need nothing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind, and naked.
