Rome fought the church severely, but in the end lost, and the Roman Empire disappeared, transforming itself into something else, and the church remains, and now circles the globe.
Therefore, the saints in heaven sing, and John saw seven angels being readied for the completion of God’s wrath on Rome,
“Then one of the four living creatures gave to the seven angels seven golden bowls full of the wrath of God who lives forever and ever” (Revelation 15:7).
Do not fear. Anyone who fights the church, eventually loses, and the church comes out stronger.
