“He who overcomes, and he who keeps My deeds until the end, to Him I will give authority over the nations.” (NASB)
STRONGS HEBREW/GREEK ORIGINS
“He who overcomes (nikao: conquer, prevail, get the victory, victorious over all His foes), and he who keeps (tereo: reserve, observe, watch, preserve, hold fast to) My deeds (ergon: works, deeds, doings, labor, business) until the end (telos: uttermost, finally, ending), to Him I will give authority (exousia: power, right, liberty, jurisdiction, strength, leave or permission, the power of rule or government) over the nations.”
He who prevails and gets the victory as well as observes My business until the uttermost end, to Him I will give the power and jurisdiction over the nations.
Now here is a loaded verse that is seldom ever discussed. With message after message of “escape” being blared to the Body, this stands in stark contrast. As a follower of Christ, you are to be an overcomer, not an escaper. When trials and tribulations come your way, do you run straight at them as the aggressor or do you back away and wield a rubber sword? Today, be an overcomer! Prevail! Get the victory! Be about your Father’s business and walk victorious today – you can do it!
