December 24 | LORD | KING
Revelation 17:14 They will make war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will overcome them because he is Lord of lords and King of kings—and with Him will be his called, chosen and faithful followers.”
The war is not over. The victory belongs to the Lamb of God who was slain, crucified, resurrected and has ascended. Jesus is the Lamb who overcame and will continue to overcome evil. We will be with Jesus because of His gracious and sovereign calling and choosing. He calls us faithful followers. So there’s still opposition, while we claim and have victory, it may include pain and battle – even in this life, as victorious Christian’s.
Jesus advent has brought us eternal and abundant life. But we must not disregard the fact that God has allowed the spiritual enemy to exist – until He says “It’s time – It’s the end!” We can be assured and rest in victory, but be ready to live in battle. To fight is to trust our Jesus, who overcame and overcomes – because He is Lord of lords – King of kings.
- Knowing that we are victorious even as we face ongoing battles, what is God teaching you?
- How are you fighting the opposition?
- How are you handling the trials in your life?
- What do you desire God to do in your heart and through your life in this season?
