The Bible appears to be relating the NAME of the Elect to Christ Himself. In tribulation, the church defiled that name by exalting itself above the name of Christ. It becomes their own name. However, when Christ is revealed in judgment, the name of Christ is restored and becomes a new name; one that redeems the believers from Babylon.
