Revelation 2:7 ...to him who overcomes, to him I will give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God. 2:17 ...to him who overcomes, to him I will give of the hidden manna... 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him and he with Me.
[In Revelation] Christ, the Head of the Body, came in to call the overcomers to overcome the degraded situation. The overcomers in Revelation do not simply overcome sin, the world, and the flesh; they especially overcome the degraded situation in which the clear view of the all-inclusive Christ has been lost. The problem in today's degraded situation is that many things are replacing the all-inclusive Christ. We need to turn from all replacements and come back directly to the all-inclusive Christ as our tree of life, our hidden manna, our feast, and our everything. We need to come back to this One in the way of enjoyment, not merely in the way of doctrine. We need to return to Him not only in the way of knowing Him objectively, but in the way of enjoying Him as the tree of life, the hidden manna, and the feast. This is a transfer out of old degraded religion into an up- to-date recovery, a recovery of the enjoyment of the all- inclusive Christ. We need to have an overall view to see today's degraded situation and also to see that the Lord's intention is to bring us back to Himself so that we may be fully recovered to the enjoyment of Him. Our need today is to experience a transfer from degraded religion to the reality of the all-inclusive Christ in the way of enjoyment.
