There is a battle coming, but the people of God need not fear. Forces of good and evil will face off in one final, climactic clash, but the Lord’s victory is already assured. In the Book of Revelation, the prophet John paints an incredible picture of the final events of this fleeting reality before the true and beautiful is ushered in. While his account of violent warfare is startling at times, the children of the Most High can trust in the One who has begun the work of restoring our world to its proper place. He will continue until that work is complete. In the end, every wrong will be made right and all things will be made new.
