2020 Day 103 – Revelation 12-14 and Psalms 103

2020 Day 103 – Revelation 12-14 and Psalms 103

The Greek word that we get Nike from (νίκη) is found several times in the book of Revelation.  (Revelation 2:7, 2:11, 2:17, 2:26, 3:5, 3:12, 3:21)  Depending on the translation you are reading, it may be translated “overcome”, “conquer”, or something similar.  The Revelation was given to encourage those Christians to overcome and conquer the persecution they were facing.  “Do not fear what you are about to suffer. Behold, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and for ten days you will have tribulation. Be faithful unto death, and I will give you the crown of life.” (Revelation 2:10)  The tribulation referred to here is not meant to last a literal ten days, but the time that it would last would be a short time especially compared to eternity.  Whatever suffering is being faced on this earth, it can be overcome with faith in God.  “Here is a call for the endurance of the saints, those who keep the commandments of God and their faith in Jesus. And I heard a voice from heaven saying, ‘Write this: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.’ ‘Blessed indeed,’ says the Spirit, ‘that they may rest from their labors, for their deeds follow them!’” (Revelation 14:12-13)
