Nothing can stop God from perfecting and protecting us. As John describes Satan’s power we certainly see how God is always protecting His children even when the gates of Hell are unleashed – they cannot prevail against us. In the description of Satan’s minions we are reminded that the locust eat away what is precious to us, the torment of those not sealed is that their lives are vain and whatever they produce, be it ever so GREAT, is eaten up and taken away from them (; ; ; ) – but for the believers, those who have been sealed by God, Whatever they put their hand to for the kingdom of God Prospers (Abraham; Joseph) – NOTHING is ever VAIN! God promises that we will have suffering in this life… But God will not allow OUR suffering to be pointless and lead to despair.
