In each of the seven letters to the churches, Jesus speaks to “him that overcometh”. Praise the Lord that the way to overcome is through faith and belief in Jesus Christ (1 John 5:4-5).
As believers we know that a place has already been prepared for us (John 14:2-3) and that place is with Jesus. Alleluia! The wicked and unbelieving, however, will be cast into the lake of fire, which is the second death (Revelation 21:8). Praise the Lord for he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever (Psalms 106:1).

Revelation 2:8-11 (Letter to the church in Smyrna)
8 And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive;
9 I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.
10 Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.
11 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.
