He who overcomes, I will give to him to sit down with me on my throne, as I also overcame, and sat down with my Father on his throne.

After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude, which no man could number, out of every nation and of all tribes, peoples, and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, dressed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands.
They cried with a loud voice, saying, "Salvation be to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!"
The smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, went up before God out of the angel's hand.
