They will wage war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will triumph over them because he is the Lord of lords and King of kings–and with him will be his called, chosen and faithful followers. Revelation 17:14
Wars and battles have been fought by many nations and groups of people all over the earth for centuries. As these battles are fought, there are those who win and those who lose in the end.
On some occasions, the group that appeared to be weaker of the two ended up winning the battle. Some appear to be weak but are stronger than the opponent.
John states that there are ten kings who will wage war with the Lamb–Jesus, but Jesus will win in the end because He is The Lord and King of all. Those who are faith and chosen will be with Him in the winning.
It is easy for people to see physical battles and wars going on between nations. The bombs and killings are easy to see. Different groups are fighting for victory over someone else.
While these physical battles are going on, there is another war that is occurring that many do not fully see. It is more subtle at times. This battle is against Jesus and those who are for Jesus–all believers who obey His commands.
Satan and the world are out to destroy all belief in Jesus and the works that He and His followers are doing. They will use lies and deception in their attempt.
At times the world appears to be winning the war, but in the end Jesus and His followers will win. Jesus has already overcome death, so there is nothing or anyone who can overcome Him. All who believe in Him and follow Him will also have victory with Him in the end.
As a believer in Jesus the world is out to stop you and destroy you. Attacks will come at you from all sides and in all forms. You are in a war for your life and the lives of those you meet.
Do not lose your focus upon Jesus. Continue to trust in Jesus and obey His every command. Despite all of the attacks and wounds that you may go through, you will be on the winning side in the end.
Jesus will triumph against the world and you with Him.
Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Lord and Savior; that you will remain faithful in following Jesus; that you will obey the commands of God; and that you will see victory in Jesus over the enemies of God.
