Winners will be able to eat of the Tree of Life in the middle of the Paradise of God, REV 2:7.

REV 2:11 – the winner believers shall not be hurt by the second death because of blessing by association.
REV 2:17 – they eat of the hidden manna and receive a new name on a white stone, the new knighthood is given to the winner to give him a “credit card” for all of eternity.

REV 2:26 – those who win the order of the morning star are given power and authority to rule nations.
REV 3:5 – the winner believer is clothed with the uniform of glory.

REV 3:12 – their names are written in the historical record section of heaven and he has a coat of arms, REV 3:12, which allows him to enter the new Jerusalem.

REV 3:21 – winners are granted to sit with Christ on His throne.

REV 21:7 – winners inherit fantastic blessings in the eternal state.

1. Both in time and in eternity believers are classified into two categories: winners or losers.
 2. The winners are believers who live in the PPOG, learning Bible doctrine, passing the momentum tests, advancing to maturity, fulfilling the plan of God and glorifying the Lord Jesus Christ.

3. The losers are believers who live in the cosmic system, called servants of Satan, constantly under the control of their old sin nature.

4. Losers are Christians who fail in time, but they do not lose their salvation; however, Christians who are losers in time do occupy an inferior place in heaven.

5. All historical blessing and prosperity in the Church-age results from unknown and unnamed persons who are winner believers in the Lord Jesus Christ living in the PPOG.

6. These mature believers provide blessing by association and historical up-trend not recorded in any human history book of the world.

7. These believers who are winners are unknown, anonymous, unsung heroes of history during the Church-age.

At the resurrection of Church, called the Rapture, this becomes a major issue, because at that time they will receive a white pebble, a resurrection body.

Cracking the maturity barrier, reaching maturity as an anonymous individual as far as world history is concerned, is very important, because although you are anonymous now in the Church-age, you will be the most famous of people in the Millennium.

The voice command of the archangel is for living believers on the earth at the Rapture.

The trumpet command is for the resurrection of dead believers.

Corruption is turned into incorruption through the resurrection, as per the trumpet command of 1CO 15:52.

1CO 15:52 “in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed.”

He’s going to be there, at the resurrection of the Royal Family of God which includes every believer from the time this dispensation began – between 30 and 32 AD, right down to whenever the Rapture occurs.

The winners will participate also, in the Big Genuflex in the sky.
PHI 2:9-11.

The Big Genuflex is the interim event between the Rapture and the Judgment Seat of Christ.

It is both the glorification of the Father’s plan and the recognition of our Lord’s battlefield royalty which was bestowed at His session.

What is confessed is the fact that our Lord’s royalty demands the resurrection of His royal family.

ROM 14:11 For it is written, “As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to Me, And every tongue shall give praise to God.

PHI 2:11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

The Big Genuflex is the moment of maximum +H which is perpetuated forever.

We make that happiness meaningful by receiving our eternal rewards and decorations.

The Big Genuflex, our acknowledgment of Christ in eternity, will be the greatest moment of worship in history, full of great singing.

In time, we acknowledge Christ by our daily intake of doctrine.

In the future, losers are going to glorify God whether they want to or not. However, the winner is going to be decorated.

He has given Him a name, our Lord’s royal pattern, which prepares the way for the new knighthood of REV 2:17.

Winners and losers alike have the right perspective at the resurrection and thereafter, so the issue and the difference between winners and losers is not their attitude at the resurrection, it is their attitude in time.

MAT 5:13You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt has become tasteless, how will it be made salty {again}? It is good for nothing anymore, except to be thrown out and trampled under foot by men.”

1JO 2:28 And now, little children, abide in Him, so that when He appears, we may have confidence and not shrink away from Him in shame at His coming.

Good – agathos = good of intrinsic value.

2TI 2:15 Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, handling accurately the word of truth.

When Jesus Christ rules the world under perfect environment of the Millennium, there will still be nationalism, not internationalism.

The rod of iron = capital punishment under the perfect environment of the Millennium.

The order of the morning star is the highest decoration for being a winner believer in time and reaching spiritual maturity in the Church-age.

TLJC became a winner for us on the cross =
the strategic victory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

The tactical victory = sharing in a part of the strategic victory of our Lord.

In His strategic and tactical victory, our Lord Jesus Christ is called the morning star.

The strategic victory of the First Advent is found in NUM 24:17.

The First Advent was still some way off from Balaam.The First Advent of Christ was not near at that time.
