He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before My Father, and before His angels.
In this setting, we have Christ offering encouragement to all believers saying, that if they persevere unto the end then they shall be clothed in white raiment that would have been washed in His blood. Christ is also stating that the overcomer's name will be in the book of life where the believer will live forever in His presence. Christ will also confess before the Father and the angels as to who these overcomers are. They are all those who have withstood Satan's attacks and the persecutions during the tribulation period.
That said, believers in all generations are engaged in a spiritual conflict that began in heaven between Satan and God. All believers are in God's army and are subjected to persecution and these persecutions will increase during the tribulation years. Believers have the help of the Holy Spirit to aid in our fight against Satan and persecution as well as being dressed for battle in God's battle gear.
What a blessing it is to live eternity in the presence of the Lord dressed in white robes and having glorified bodies like Christ our Savior where there will be no more persecutions, pain and suffering.
Believers take heart, Christ has overcomed the world; therefore, we are overcomers.
