You wrote,[...ways in which these passages have been interpreted...].
It has been revealed to me that the book called The Revelation was written by John, a Jew, and that the symbols then used were so that at least Jews could understand the message of the book. Being a Jew, what has been revealed to me is from a Jewish perspective.
In what we are discussing, when I read the second chapter concerning overcomming, I was led to the book called Jeremiah, the 31st chapter, the 33erd verse where I read that he that overcomes will eat of the tree of life which is in the midst of the Paradise of God. And it reads,
[...says the Lord, I will put my law in their minds and write it in their hearts, and I will be their God, and they shall be My people...]
The tree of life was in the midst of the garden and could have given Adam and Eve the mind of God, and have had God's law written in their hearts, but they did not eat of that tree. It has been revealed to me that the tree of life is God's law put into the minds and hearts of His people by His Spirit, which means that repenting is the first stage of overcomming and one is allowed to eat of the tree of life which then imparts God's Spirit into the miinds and hearts of the overcommer. This then is a new mind, a spiritual mind, and a new heart, a spiritual heart.
