Kingdom Come



Once there was a King. He ruled his kingdom democratically. Before he died, he picked his successor legitimately. The process is very straightforward and clear. Some of his subjects may not agree with the process. Concerns were raised. Most of it fell on deaf ears.

Then came another being in the kingdom. He wants to be King too. He tries to take away the legitimate Kings power. Huff and puff be blows to break the King’s defence. Most of his efforts failed him. He does not give up. He waits for his opportunity to be King.

When the other being tried to be King, he managed to cause the legitimate King to resort to many political decisions that affects the Kingdom. The other being managed to cause slight terror and major discomfort to the King and his cohorts.

Suddenly, all is quiet.

I am worried. There is a scent of some boosted ego by the temporary success of the King. His cohorts enjoy the same success. The King will now need a bigger crown to fit his enlarged head. His cohorts will be bragging about it.

I am worried that the King may feel he is too good for any competition. This will impair his judgments and decisions. Visions and missions will no longer be clear. The King’s cohorts will enjoy the spoils of the Kingdom without fear. They will be fearless of competition. Arrogance will kick in. Arrogance without check and balance will grow even bigger. Finally they will be fearless of The Maker. Fearless of The Maker can be seen by actions. Actions which leads to no fear to The Maker’s rules and regulations. Sins will be regarded as customs of the Kingdom. The Kingdom will be ruled by sinners.

Yes. I am worried about the enlarged ego. I have never had a good encounter with big egos. Big egos can harm you. I am worried about the King's big ego. You should be too.
