Absolute Victory

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 revelation-17-14-absolute-victoryassurance 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.

Victorious Lamb

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.

We never run out of reasons to praise our loving and victorious heavenly Father—our God. With the myriad people who treat Him as their enemies, after all their merciless attacks against God, our Father remains unscathed. His attackers have come and gone; many of them have returned to dust, our God still lives; He still reigns, and He will continue to do so—live and reign forever. Doubtless, it’s wise to be on His side; it’s an infinitely huge blessing to be His child. How amazing it is, when the world hits us with its most devastating blows, only to find out that in the middle of what they consider as our most humiliating defeat, they’re actually being paraded in front of the whole creation as vanquished foes.

All assaults against God are futile. This is obvious, but people foolishly continue in this useless and harmful exercise. Very interestingly, most of the attacks come from those who don’t even believe in His existence. We pray earnestly that they would be healed from their biased blindness and humbly bow before the Truth. It’s hard to kick against the Rock. Anyone who does this only hurts themselves. We don’t want them hurt. We want them saved and comforted.

During the end times, Satan and his cohorts will muster all the forces they can, and with coordinated efforts, they will launch an all-out assault against God and His people. This time, our Lord Jesus will literally and personally face them. And again, clearly and predictably, the Lamb of God Who takes away the sins of the world will win. And He wins simply because of the obvious reason: He is the Lord of all lords and the King of all kings. All rulers, powers, and principalities will bow before Him. You would think that His attackers would have given up a long time ago, but pride and foolishness blinds. That’s why we as His children are extremely grateful. He opened our eyes, that’s why it’s our heart’s cry and life’s passion to live faithfully before Him. Imagine, we also enjoy the victories, but He’s the one fighting the battles.
