In my opinion the Text is clear to assign the Praise, Glory and honor to the
"TEST ED FAITH" , and not to any person , either God, Jesus Christ or the
The text mentions the name of Jesus Christ in connection with the time of
the revelation of the Praise etc.
The Tested Faith here is the most important factor, even in the previous
verses, because the context is Persecution.
Hope this short message will be enough.
