What the Spirit saith:
The Spirit-taught revelation from the Word: Jn 14:26 "But the Comforter, even the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, " 1Jn2:27 And as for you, the anointing which ye received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any one teach you; but as his anointing teacheth you; concerning all things, and is true, and is no lie, and even as it taught you, ye abide in him.
To him that overcometh, to him will I give of the hidden manna
What do they overcome to eat of the hidden manna, the hidden Word of Truth? In other words, leaving the apostate system that calls itself Christian and is headed by "false apostles 'messengers', the Nicolaitane error (false church government), and the the married-to-the-world Balaam ministry that sold itself for hire, given in the previous verses in Rev. 2.:2/6/14
I will give him a white stone What do they that eat of that "hidden manna" receive? Nothing less than the "white stone", i.e. the pure Jesus: "The Stone that the builders rejected who is become the Head of the corner". Acts 4:11 This is the stone which was set at nought of you (apostate) builders, which is become the head of the corner."
-Indeed, set at nought by the builders who substituted their version of Jesus as they built their churches, organizations, and ministries.
a new name written
The "new name" IS the Pure Jesus (the white stone) of the "hidden manna" of the Word of God. Can "another Jesus slip in through the church door?
2 Corinthians 11:4 For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached. Ahhh, not every "Jesus" preached is The "White Stone" Jesus that Paul preached!
which no one *knoweth but he that receiveth it.
What an awesome revelation to recognize the Pure Jesus of the Hidden Manna one may receive after overcoming the Nicolaitane error and the preach-for-reward ministry! Knowing the "new name", in truth, cannot be learned from books or a man, it can only be imparted by the Spirit of God. Men may teach and repeat, but the Lord God gives revelation
