Resting in Battle

We have been studying Revelation this winter. We have recently read about the final battles – yes there is more than one. I always thought there was one. Anyway, in both battles Jesus leads his army into battle and they never have to fight. In the first battle against the nations Jesus speaks and the sword that comes out of his mouth destroys the enemy. In the next great battle fire falls from heaven and consumes the armies of Satan.
Jesus soliders have persevered, been faithful. When time for battle comes they do not have to fight. They rest in his authority, his victory. They have already proven they would give their lives for him, they have in fact. Now they have entered his rest.
