There is one great truth in Revelation 17 that has the power to sustain us through life. It is found in verse 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 and chosen and faithful. Revelation 17:14 (ESV)
The Lamb will conquer them. This is glorious truth. So many today are making war on our Lord, and sometimes they are making war on us in the process. But no matter. Though they make war on Him, He will conquer them. If not the greatest truth in Revelation, then it is one of the greatest. This is our hope when “darkness seems to hide His face.” This is our hope in tribulation. He will conquer.
And because we His followers are “in Him”, when He conquers…so will we.
