The Lamb Will Triumph

Revelation 17:14

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 NIV

This 17th chapter of Revelation describes a beast and its rider. Who, or what, this woman and beast are is a matter of much speculation. But the woman is said to be drunk with the blood of God’s holy people (Rev. 17:6). And the beast comes from the Abyss and will make war against the Lamb. So whoever, or whatever, this woman and the beast she is riding are, they represent evil that is actively opposed to our Lord and his people.

While evil may seem to have the upper hand today, it is only temporary. Judgment is coming. The next chapter details the judgment against this woman known as Babylon. And Revelation 19:11-21 describes the defeat and judgment of the beast she is riding.

Revelation 17:14 tells us that the Lamb (Rev. 5:6-10) will triumph over them. Why? Because he is Lord of lords and King of kings. He has all power and authority. None can stand against him. He will triumph over all that is evil in both the physical and spiritual realms.

And with the victorious Lamb will be his called, chosen, and faithful followers. These have been described in different ways throughout Revelation, often pictured as suffering at the hands of those opposed to the Lamb. But, when evil is defeated, we will be standing with the Lamb.

This should encourage us to remain faithful, regardless of what we might face. Evil’s power will soon be broken. And we will be there to rejoice in its defeat and the triumph of the Lamb. What a glorious day that will be.
