A Message of Hope to the Overcomer
 I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.  Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
And they have conquered him by The Blood of The Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death.
He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who conquers I will grant to eat of The Tree of Life, which is in The Paradise of God.
He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. The one who conquers will not be hurt by The Second Death.
He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who conquers I will give some of The Hidden Manna, and I will give him a white stone, with a new name written on the stone that no one knows except the one who receives it.
The one who conquers and who keeps my works until the end, to him I will give authority over the nations, and he will rule them with a rod of iron, as when earthen pots are broken in pieces, even as I myself have received authority from my Father. And I will give him The Morning Star. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
The 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. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
The one who conquers, I will make him a pillar in The Temple of my God. Never shall he go out of it, and I will write on him The Name of My God, and The Name of The City of my God, The New Jerusalem, which comes down from my God out of Heaven, and My own New Name. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
The one who conquers, I will grant him to sit with me on My Throne, as I also conquered and sat down with my Father on His Throne. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
My Soul Waits for God Alone
To the choirmaster: according to Jeduthun. A Psalm of David.
 For God alone my soul waits in silence;
from him comes my salvation.
 He alone is my rock and my salvation,
my fortress; I shall not be greatly shaken.
 How long will all of you attack a man
to batter him,
like a leaning wall, a tottering fence?
 They only plan to thrust him down from his high position.
They take pleasure in falsehood.
They bless with their mouths,
but inwardly they curse. Selah
 For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence,
for my hope is from him.
 He only is my rock and my salvation,
my fortress; I shall not be shaken.
 On God rests my salvation and my glory;
my mighty rock, my refuge is God.
 Trust in him at all times, O people;
pour out your heart before him;
God is a refuge for us. Selah
 Those of low estate are but a breath;
those of high estate are a delusion;
in the balances they go up;
they are together lighter than a breath.
 Put no trust in extortion;
set no vain hopes on robbery;
if riches increase, set not your heart on them.
 Once God has spoken;
twice have I heard this:
that power belongs to God,
 and that to you, O Lord, belongs steadfast love.
For you will render to a man
according to his work.
