Revelation 2:23

The Bible associates certain emotional and psychological experiences with body organs. This is not totally foreign to the way we also use the language of emotions. In the English-speaking world the heart is the seat of emotions. We tell our spouses, “I love you with all my heart.” Obviously the reference is not to the physical organ inside our chests. We mean that our love comes from the very depth of our being, and is, therefore, genuine. In the Bible this practice is much more common. I will deal only with the usage 
of the term “kidneys” (“reins”).
