28 Days of Letters from Jesus

November 17 – Revelation 2:16-17

The promise of manna, a white stone, and a new name symbolize God’s provision for his faithful ones. Manna was the food God provided in the wilderness, now it’s a heavenly provision for believers. Stones were used as tokens for various purposes. In this passage, perhaps it represents one’s ticket of admission to the heavenly banquet of the Messiah. The new name could represent our new identity in Christ, an identity that only those of faith can recognize or receive.
