Those Who Have the Victory
As we walk through the streets of the last days, the decisions that determine where we stand are more and more important. While we watch the world ever compromising to remain in a state of comfort and denial of any personal accountability, the things we consider commonplace and acceptable are standing on a blurred line of complacency and leading down a path to the full rejection of God and His will for us.

Though that may seem a bit harsh, if we consider where our daily habits are leading us, modern life has left us with little or no time to think about God. Let alone to try to live a life that would be pleasing to Him.
In chapter 15 of Revelation, judgement of God is coming to the world and though there will be many who think this is unfair, they will have already made their choice to deny or reject Him.
“Then I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous: seven angels having the seven last plagues, for in them the wrath of God is complete. And I saw something like a sea of glass mingled with fire, and those who have the victory over the beast, over his image and over his mark and over the number of his name, standing on the sea of glass, having harps of God. They sing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying: “Great and marvelous are Your works, Lord God Almighty! Just and true are Your ways, O King of the saints! Who shall not fear You, O Lord, and glorify Your name? For You alone are holy. For all nations shall come and worship before You, For Your judgments have been manifested.””
“Those who have the victory,” refers to those who come to this point of the tribulation and do not accept the Mark of the anti-christ but reject him and follow Christ. These last days believers will be singing the song of Moses (which you can find in Exodus chapter 15) and the song of the Lamb (verses 3-4). These victorious believers will persevere through tribes and persecution of the anti-christ and all his followers. Keep in mind the sate of the world at this time. There will be many who perish from natural (or unnatural) disasters as well as those hunted and martyred for their rejection of the mark. The seven last plagues in verse one would be enough to torment the world on their own. It will be like every dystopian-post-apocalyptic movie ever made mingled with spiritual warfare and the deciding factor of sides will be each individuals personal decision to accept or reject the one true God.
It’s amazing in itself that any survive the attacks that will come their way. Yet here they are, singing praises to the Almighty! Because they will know that this is what they have stayed faithful for…to be in the presence of God and sing His praises.
These are the times that lie ahead in the very near future, and while we must persevere as believers and stand strong for what we know is right, we must also prepare as many people as we can. They may not believe and follow Christ now, but if we plant the seed, the Lord will water it. He is worthy of every description and praise in this song and His plan is perfect.
I encourage you, little sparrows, to share the word of God with those around you while we are still here to sew the field. God will take care of the rest.
