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).
When you think of “The King,” perhaps Elvis Presley comes to mind. He may be the king of rock and roll, but Jesus is “The King.” Without getting into all the complexities surrounding the Book of Revelation, here is the main point. Jesus came to earth for one primary purpose, to bring salvation to the human race. He is described in the text as a “Lamb.” He is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. He forgives all who trust in Him and His shed blood. Yet, from the time of His birth through today, some war against Him. Their efforts to unthrone the King of kings are futile. He will finally triumph over all His foes.
Christians disagree over the nature of that final conflict. But, it is enough to know that we win! His faithful followers will be with Him when He defeats all who oppose Him. Just make sure you are on the winning team!
Father, it puzzles me as to why anyone would fight against You. Yet I must confess there was a time when I fought against You. There was a time when I rejected Your Son. Thank You for Your forgiveness. I want to be Your instrument, drawing others into Your kingdom. In the holy name of Jesus, I pray, Amen.
