Let's look at the Revelation Martyrs, who also cry for vengeance.
And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:
And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?
And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled. Re 6:9-11
Here it is indicated that there are many more martyrs yet to come before their blood would be avenged. In chapter 15 we see the rest of them.
And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God. Re 15:2
These here are the martyrs referred to in Chapter 12
And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. Re 12:11
Here these martyrs have gotten the victory because they were willing to die for the Lord. How does this get them victory over the adversary? Hebrews tells us that the devil has the power of death, and through fear of death he is able to keep men in bondage.
Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;
And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage. Heb 2:1415
So this tells us that by overcoming the fear of death, you overcome Satan. And the proof or demonstration that you have overcome the fear of death is simple. Die without fear. In Romans we read these instructions:
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Ro 12:1-2
Here it speaks of proving the will of God. At the end of Romans 12 we find this expression of God's will.
Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. Ro 12:19
So extending our train of thought, we see that the revelation martyrs get the victory over the enemy by dying willingly, without fear; and thus 'giving place to wrath'. And this wrath is the avenging of our blood that takes place at the Second Coming and is depicted in the story of Jehu's wild ride.
