Revelation 17:14 (KJV) 14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.
Our precious Lord Jesus—He Who is humble, gentle, and meek; He Who is merciful, gracious, loving, and kind—is also the King of kings and the Lord of lords. He hasn’t lost a single battle and He never will. This is a sufficiently credible reason for us to live in full assurance and absolute peace, and ought to have been a more than adequate reason for those who treat God as their enemy to lay down their “arms” in unconditional surrender.
We don’t fight a losing battle. Our efforts are productive. We know that we are marching with our King towards the ultimate victory of the Kingdom. We have lots of enemies now; they’re more numerous; they’re powerful; they’re strong; they’re noisier; they’re more vocal; they’re more widely accepted and supported. In the natural eyes, they’re winning. And it’s heart-breaking to see them seeing the world only within the parameters of the natural.
All these seeming advances and victories they’re enjoying are immaterial as to how this will all end. The result is the same: The kingdom of this world will become the kingdom of God and of His Christ. Reigning with Him are the called—the chosen—the faithful—us. Praise God. With this truth before us, we march on. Although we’re fully aware that the way is broad and the gate is wide that leads to destruction, and that there are many who go there, we’re equally aware that there are still those who are sincerely in search of the straight path and narrow gate that leads to life. We’re here for them. And although we know not everyone will listen; we want those who would to hear. Us, with them, with our beloved Jesus—the Lord of lords and the King of kings, altogether, we will sail towards our absolute triumph and eternal reign.
