And the Winner Is…

Have you ever watched a fight where there was no way one of the people was going to win? As I write this, the result of the Mayweather-McGregor fight is known…a fight where almost no one gave McGregor a chance to win…and he didn’t. It really didn’t make sense that he could win. There is something like this in Revelation19 when Jesus returns to earth. The stage is set for the battle between Jesus and the armies of heaven and the Beast and his armies. I suppose the Beast thought he could win, but he was sorely mistaken. Here is how the chapter ends: 19 And I saw the beast, the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army. 20 Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone. 21 And the rest were killed with the sword which proceeded from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse. And all the birds were filled with their flesh.

The fight wasn’t much of a fight at all. Jesus wins…end of story.  I hope that the Bible is clear enough for us to understand that God wins. In fact, I think that is the theme of the book of Revelation…God wins. There really isn’t a battle at all. If you are a follower of Jesus you have that power on your side. Sure, God doesn’t do everything we want Him to do but He does do everything HE WANTS to do…and we should trust that what He does is best for us as well. It’s nice to be on the winning side.
