He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.
Obedient saints are to hear what the Spirit says to the churches. The one who overcomes will be given hidden manna and a white stone, with a new name written on it. The overcomer, referred here, is one who refuses to tolerate false teaching in the local church. Manna is a type of Christ Himself and hidden manna may speak of our intimate communion with Christ. The white stone is a symbol of victory, while given a new name indicates acceptance by God.
