Each of the letters to the seven churches Revelation 2-3 concludes with a distinct reward the Lord promises “to him who overcomes.” Then in Revelation 20:4-6 we see the fulfillment of these promises in “the first resurrection” (Rev. 20:5), during the 1,000 year reign of Christ on the earth.

So, to have a good understanding of the overcomers’ reward, we need to look closely at these verses in Revelation 20. They show us that, not only will the Lord make a distinction between the overcoming believers and the defeated believers, but even among the overcomers, there will be degrees of reward.
