". . . . .I will also give that person a white stone with a new name written on it, known only to the one who receives it." NIV
". . . . .and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it."KJV
Back during Biblical times, the casting of lots was used to make a decision and determine the will of God. Most often stones of white and black were used. The placement and the position of the white stone after the stones were cast, determined the choice. When the Lord comes for His own, those who have overcome, He will not cast stones to see if we are allowed to enter into His presence for eternity. He will give each of us a white stone with our name on it because the decision was already made, when we met Jesus at the cross.
Heavenly Father, how blessed we are to have the assurance of salvation because of the blood Jesus shed on the cross. Help us to remember that their awaits a stone for each of us with our new name on it and let it reflects this amazing love and grace in our lives. In Jesus' name we pray, Amen.
