Nikao (Overcome)

 Revelation 3:5 –overcome, nikaō; Strong’s #3528:

A word meaning “to gain victory” or “get beyond.” It is used by Jesus to set the standard of life for believers in John 16:33: “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” Here and six more times in Revelation, Jesus urges believers and churches to remain faithful to the end. Overcoming is the ultimate demonstration of the reality of one’s faith in Christ and the way to His promised rewards. The word is also used in John 16:33 and Romans 12:21.
