For the past day or so, I’ve felt under an increasing compulsion to remind myself and you about what’s important. We talk about redemptive fiction which will transform lives. This is true and I believe this is our vision, as authors called by God, but why do we do what we do? For me it comes down to one of the reasons I like fantasy so much. I’m a monarchist serving the Coming King. It’s hard for me to take seriously all the governmental and worldly facades attempting to cover up what we should all know is the truth: a righteous, benevolent, all-powerful, completely loving monarch is our hope. He’s why we do what we do.
The Coming King will be here soon!
During this election season everyone has gone berserk. Have we even asked the Lord whom He is backing? The talking heads chatter. The establishment leaders, including the media, are aghast. Presently, we have three seemingly insane choices. Yet:
Let every person be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except from God, and those that exist are appointed by God. Romans 13:1 MEV
Everyone take a deep breath now! God will give us the leaders He chooses for this day and time. The Coming King is not surprised by this. He’s simply waiting for the word from the Father to come and eliminate all the ungodly. WE are the ones who do not know the day nor the hour. Here’s the word from our Lord for this day.
Get ready. Be watchful.
You don’t know when, but it’s soon!
This is our motivation and the bottomline of our calling. We are all under a life or death deadline: Heaven or Hell. It’s the choice each of us has to make, and we’re running out of time—quickly. This is why it is so important that our writing be redemptive. We need to lead our readers to Jesus, our Lord and King, while there’s still that choice. Remember the words of Jesus, as He warned us the first time He came among us:
“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven. Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonderful works in Your name?’ But then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you. Depart from Me, you who practice evil.’ Matthew 7:21-23 MEV
We must know Him. If you do not understand this, you should read The Narrow Gate.
the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding banquet. And the door was shut. Matthew 25:10 MEV
