21 The victor: I will give him the right to sit with Me on My throne, just as I also won the victory and sat down with My Father on His throne.
“The victor” are those who held to the truth of the gospel and even died for it rather than denying Jesus. They are the ones who will endure to the end according to Philippians 1:6 which says, “6 I am sure of this, that He who started a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”
The phrase “I will give him the right to sit with Me on My throne” means that Jesus will give every believer authority which could be referring to the millennial reign of Christ on earth or in the new heaven and earth.
22 “Anyone who has an ear should listen to what the Spirit says to the churches.”
Chapter 3 ends with the importance of really paying close attention to God’s Word as we all should be doing today because the time is very near.
