Conquer (Revelation 3:12)

"The one who conquers, I will make him a pillar in the temple of my God. Never shall he go out of it, and I will write on him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which comes down from my God out of heaven, and my own new name." - Revelation 3:12

As opposed to having 666 written on you you'll have the name of God. And you'll have the name of the city of God (I assume it will be something cool like JerusalemX or something).

Okay admittedly the "and my own new name" part baffles me a little bit, but this is Jesus talking.

I basically just wanted to comment on how I desire to be the one who conquers. I like 'conquers' a lot better than other places that say 'overcomes,' it seems more masculine. When I hear overcome I think, 'overcome diversity' and that just sounds lame. But when I hear conquer I think of swords and bows and arrows and horses and great battles.

I want to conquer in the spiritual realm. In order to conquer I'll have to make sure I'm fighting (as it's pretty easy to become complacent).

Do what it takes to be a pillar in the temple of God. Conquer.
