In the middle of all of the sevens, all of the cosmic cycles of judgement, we get this parable of hope. In the parable, there are rich and constantly shifting images, but they have a simple message: God is with his church, even in the worst of persecution. And just like the Lamb, even when God’s people look like they are being conquered for the Gospel, from heaven’s perspective, it’s God’s kingdom that’s truly conquering.
