Does it ever seem like evil has the upper hand? Those who do evil seem to prosper. Their agenda seems to have prominence in society much more than it deserves.
The Bible is clear that we do not need to fear evil. It may prevail for some time and gain ground in the hearts of the weak. But in the end, God will defeat evil, along with Satan, the author of evil.
But evil also has the feature of self-destructing. Those who do evil may collaborate and multiply their efforts, but ultimately they will turn on each other.
In the book of Revelations chapter 17 we see how, through the Beast, Satan joins forces with the kings of the earth to fight against the Lamb in an unprecedented war of the ages. But “The Lamb will conquer them, for he is the Lord of lords and King of kings, and those with him are called and chosen and faithful” (Rev 17:14). Along with evil being conquered, we see in the following verses how the forces of evil turn on each other. Ultimately, evil will self-destruct and Jesus will be victorious and we, along with him.
So don’t fear when you see evil prevailing in society. Just smile knowing that Jesus will be victorious.
