Not be hurt by the second death (2:11) Holds the keys of death (1:18)
Will be given new manna and a new name (2:17) Is the new manna (cf. John 6) and has the greatest name (22:12-13)
Will be given authority over the nations as Christ was given from his Father (2:27-28) Has the authority of the King of kings and Lord of lords (17:14; 19:16)
Will not have name erased, but Christ will confess it before the Father (3:5) Christ decides whose names will be confessed before the Father (3:5; cf. 1:18; 2:7; 22:12)
