Will God’s people be victorious?

As chapter 11 of Revelation draws to a close, the voices in heaven begin to rumor the good and long-awaited news concerning the Kingdom of God cautiously but joyfully – the ultimate outcome of the cosmic holy war is now clear: The evil is defeated, the guilty punished in mercy, the righteous vindicated and exulted.

Just as was the case with the ending of Daniel’s vision (“…the saints of the Highest One will receive the kingdom and take possession of the kingdom forever, for all ages to come” (Dan.7:18) in Revelation too the verdict is clear and uncontested: “The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ; and He will reign forever and ever.” (Rev. 11:15)
