71. That it is the Lord alone who will bestow the felicities of eternal life is apparent from the following passages. The Lord said to the church of Ephesus:

To him who overcomes I will give to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God. (Revelation 2:7)

To the church of the people of Smyrna:

...I will give you the crown of life... He who overcomes shall not be hurt by the second death. (Revelation 2:10-11)

To the church in Pergamum:

To him who overcomes I will give to eat of the hidden manna. And I will give him a white stone, and on the stone a new name written, which no one knows except him who receives it. (Revelation 2:17)

To the church in Thyatira:

...to him I will give power over the nations... and I will give him the morning star. (Revelation 2:26, 28)

To the church in Philadelphia:

He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God... And I will write on him the name of My God..., the name of... the New Jerusalem..., and My new name. (Revelation 3:12)

To the church in Laodicea:

To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne... (Revelation 3:21)

From these passages it is apparent, too, that the Lord alone is acknowledged in the New Church. That is why that church is called the Lamb's wife (Revelation 19:7, 9; 21:9-10).
