Good morning!

Text:  Revelation 17; Micah 7

When we see the strife and troubles of our world, when we see the strength and destructiveness of evil it is good to be reminded that “Jesus wins!”

“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)

Jesus indeed with conquer all the foes of evil.  And when He does, we, the Redeemed, will be with Him.  We see here three marks we will be bear.  First, we are called.  You and I, if we are in Christ, are in Him because He called us (Romans 8:28-30). “Come, follow me” He said.  We are also His because we were chosen.  God’s Word says the Father chose us before the beginning of time (Ephesians 1:4).  And we are in Christ by our faith (Ephesians 2:8).  Think of these truths next time you fear defeat.  A powerful God does the choosing and the calling, we do the believing.  And of course, Jesus does the saving and brings the victory.

in Him, Mike
