    SEV Biblia, Chapter 17:14

    ¶ Ellos pelearn contra el Cordero, y el Cordero los vencer, porque es el Seor de seores, y el Rey de reyes; y los que estn con l son llamados, y elegidos, y fieles.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Revelation 17:14

    Verse 14. These shall make
    war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them; for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and, faithful.] The ten powers of the beast must compose the secular kingdom of antichrist, for they make war with the Lamb, who is Christ Jesus. This is perfectly true of all popish states, for they have constantly opposed, as long as they have had any secular power, the progress of pure Christianity. They make war with the Lamb by persecuting his followers; but the Lamb shall overcome them, for he is the Lord of lords, and King of kings - all lords have their authority from him, and no king can reign without him; therefore the ten Latin kings are God's ministers to execute his vengeance upon the idolatrous nations. But when these antichristian monarchies have executed the Divine purpose, those that are with the Lamb-the called, the chosen, and the faithful, those who have kept THE TRuth in the love of it, shall prevail against all their adversaries, because their battles are fought by the Lamb, who is their God and Deliverer. See chap. xix. 19, 20.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 14. These shall make
    war with the Lamb , etc.] The Lord Jesus Christ, so often spoken of in this book under this character, ( Revelation 5:6,12 6:1 7:10 14:1). And this war is not to be understood of a war with him personally, or of that last and decisive, battle at Armageddon, in which will be the kings of the earth; but of a war with his members, of their persecuting of the saints, and faithful witnesses of Christ in all ages, within their jurisdictions, being instigated to it by the beast, under whose influence they are: and the Lamb shall overcome them : partly through the constancy of his people, who will not love their lives to the death, but freely lay them down for him; nor can anything separate them from the love of Christ, or prevail upon them to desert him, his truths and ordinances, cause and interest, but are more than conquerors through him, and so he overcomes in them; and partly through a reformation which he effects, as in some of those kingdoms already, as Sweden, Denmark, England, Scotland, and Ireland, and others, and will do in others hereafter; (see Revelation 17:16) for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings ; he is so by nature, as God and Creator, to whom the kingdom of nature and providence belongs; and by office, as Mediator, being made higher than the kings of the earth; hence he is more than a match for them, they cannot stand before him; this is a reason why he overcomes them, and it cannot be thought it should be otherwise: this Lamb is the lion of the tribe of Judah, and when he rouses himself, and stirs up his wrath, and exerts his power, kings and great men flee from him; (see Revelation 6:15-17 Psalm 2:6,9-12). This is a proof of Christ's proper deity, the same titles being given to him, the Word and Son of God, as to God himself, ( Revelation 19:16 1 Timothy 6:15,16). And they that are with him : his servants and his soldiers, that fight under him, and abide by him, are called, and chosen, and faithful ; they are chosen in Christ from all eternity, to grace here, and glory hereafter, and so stand opposed to the admirers of the beast, whose names are not written in the book of life, ( Revelation 17:8) for this is to be understood of their eternal election, and not of their separation by the effectual calling in time, for that is expressed by their being called; and though their calling is here set before election, as in ( 2 Peter 1:10) yet it does not precede it; the Arabic version reads, chosen, called, faithful; first chosen by God the Father, then called, not with the bare external call by the ministry of the word, for, so, many are called, and not chosen; but by special grace to special benefits, and with an holy and heavenly calling, and which is irresistible, and without repentance; and being called they remain faithful: the meaning is, either that they have faith, or are believers in Christ; which faith they have bestowed on them in the effectual calling, as a fruit of electing grace; and by this they overcome the world: or else, that they are persons of integrity and uprightness, that are on the side of Christ; they are the faithful in the Lord, and are made so by him; and they are faithful to him, and abide by his Gospel and ordinances, and in his cause and interest, even unto death; and so this character is expressive of the perseverance of those who are chosen and called, even unto the end.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 7-14 - The
    beast on which the woman sat was, and is not, and yet is. It was seat of idolatry and persecution, and is not; not in the ancient form which was pagan: yet it is; it is truly the seat of idolatry an tyranny, though of another sort and form. It would deceive into stupi and blind submission all the inhabitants of the earth within it influence, except the remnant of the elect. This beast was seven heads seven mountains, the seven hills on which Rome stands; and seven kings seven sorts of government. Five were gone by when this prophecy wa written; one was then in being; the other was yet to come. This beast directed by the papacy, makes an eighth governor, and sets up idolatr again. It had ten horns, which are said to be ten kings who had as ye no kingdoms; they should not rise up till the Roman empire was broken but should for a time be very zealous in her interest. Christ mus reign till all enemies be put under his feet. The reason of the victor is, that he is the King of kings, and Lord of lords. He has suprem dominion and power over all things; all the powers of earth and hel are subject to his control. His followers are called to this warfare are fitted for it, and will be faithful in it.
