“He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.”
King James Version (KJV)
Re 13:10 He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity. "If any man [is] for captivity, into captivity he goeth" (Revised Version). The meaning is "Whatever a man soweth, that shall he also reap" (Ga 6:7). "With what measure a man meets, it shall be measured to him again" (Mt 7:2 Mr 4:24 Lu 6:38). If the beast and his adherents lead the saints captive, they shall finally be made captive; if they slay with the sword, so shall they be slain. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints. The assurance that God will, in the end, right all their wrongs gives them faith and patience.
