Revelation 3:12 The Passion Translation (TPT)

12 For the one who is victorious, I will make you to be a pillar in the sanctuary of my God,[a] permanently secure.[b] I will write on you the name of my God and the name of the city of my God—the New Jerusalem, descending from my God out of heaven.[c] And I’ll write my own name on you.


  1. Revelation 3:12 Since the image of a secure pillar is figurative, the sanctuary (temple) is also figurative, for there is no temple in the New Jerusalem reality (21:22). The word for “pillar” is also used for a pillar of fire. The emblem of a pillar points to a sure and fixed position upholding and supporting the kingdom purposes of God.
  2. Revelation 3:12 Or “never again will he leave it.”
  3. Revelation 3:12 We are not going up to the New Jerusalem; this heavenly “city” is coming down to us on earth. It’s new in quality, not simply new in time.
