Revelation 17:14

"They will make war on the Lamb, and the Lamb will conquer them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those with Him are called chosen and faithful."

In the middle of a daunting chapter about the end of the world, this verse.

You should probably be curious enough to go read the chapter, if you are unfamiliar with it. Revelation 17, a preacher's nightmare for the most part.

And then, this verse.

The Lamb will conquer them. Our Lamb, Jesus Christ, whose blood takes away the sins of the world.

No matter what happens, He has already won the epic struggle of good against evil. He won that at the cross when He died and rose again. Near the end of time, Satan will try to do what he can to cheat the Lamb out of His just reward (our eternal souls). He will make war on the Lamb. But the Lamb will conquer him, vanquish him, and bring us home to heaven... those of us who are chosen and faithful.

That's good news.

Keep on keeping on.
