They will wage war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will triumph over them because he is Lord of lords and King of kings–and with him will be his called, chosen and faithful followers. Revelation 17:14
War is something that the majority of people do not want. And even more people do not want to be a part of a war. War always means that many will get hurt or be killed. There is often division during a war, some wanting the war, while others against it.
There are groups of people, who are so much against war of any type, that they will protest and riot against having war or anyone going to war. Yet, despite the like or hatred of war, there is a war going on. It has gone on since the day Adam and Eve were kicked out of the garden of Eden.
Satan and this world has been battling against God and Jesus for all time. They do not want Jesus to succeed, so they have waged a war against Him. The goal is to kill as many people as possible, preventing them from getting into heaven.
The war battles are fierce. They are fighting for the mind and soul and many times for the body of every person they can battle with.
Even though it often appears that Jesus is losing this war, he will triumph in the end. He is Lord and King over every person on this earth, whether they like it or not. Along with Him, will be every person who has been called, chosen and a faithful follower.
All people are called, many are chosen, but not everyone is a faithful follower. To be a faithful follower, one must obediently do what Jesus commands, to live as He lived.
Jesus will win the war in the end. You have a choice as to which side of the war will you be on.
Jesus has called you. He wants everyone to be saved. Have you answered that call to follow Him?
Once you have answered the call, you are now chosen. Now you must become a faithful follower. Take a look at your life and see how you are following Jesus.
Are you being His witness? Are you turning away from sin? Are you showing love, mercy and forgiveness? Are you fighting for the kingdom of God?
In all this, are you a faithful follower who will win with Jesus in the end?
I pray today that you will know Jesus as your Savior; that you will fight the war with Jesus; that you will be found to be a faithful follower of Jesus; and that you will fight in knowing Jesus will win the war in the end.
