SIH TOTT ICONRev 13:10 KJV

(10)  He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

 

 

The Lord gives to us the promise of divine retribution for wrongdoers.  In this case, the wrongdoers are the political powers of this world.  The wrongdoing is their abuse of the people of God.

The Lord promises that any wrongdoing performed by those in authority will come back upon their head…  “He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword.”

The Lord goes a step further explaining that this principle is a motivating force behind the saints continued obedience in the face of such persecution.  It is one of the sources of “the patience and the faith of the saints”.

 

PATIENCE, based upon FAITH, that the final punishment of the wicked is only a matter of time.  It is a certainty, promised by a God who is ALWAYS faithful.

It is the saints trusting the Lord with His promises, and then putting that trust in practice by continuing to be faithful to Him in the midst of the persecution…

Heb 10:23-24 KJV – “Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)  And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:”

 

May we all trust the Lord and patiently serve Him no matter what Satan may bring our way.  May we always know that He is faithful and, therefore, any abuse we face will be avenged, and any opposition put before us will ultimately fail.

    Hey Rob

    Great one. I have been quite immersed in the subject of patience lately and this post of yours was a great addition to my thinking. Today, especially patience is so very important to Christians I think. So many things beset us from all sides, and we need the patience to not always struggle against them, but simply continue to tell people the Gospel.

    This is very important in light of things going on recently in America and around the world against Christians
