Jesus promises to make the victors in Philadelphia pillars in His temple, and to inscribe a triple name on them.

Fill in the blank: “The name of My God, and the name of the ____________ of My God, which comes down out of heaven from My God, and My new name” (Revelation 3:12).

God, BLANK, Jesus. We’ve seen that already, in 1:4-5: God, seven Spirits, Jesus.

But the Trinity of 3:12 is different: God, the city of God, Jesus. The bridal city that descends from heaven has slipped in between the Father and the Son, in the place where the Spirit should be. 

And the triple name now includes “new Jerusalem.”
