In today’s episode, the guys discuss King Charles III in light of the upcoming coronation. Before jumping into the conversation, they clarify that their intention is not to promote any particular eschatological view, but rather are focusing on what people are saying in regard to this topic. The world seems to have an insatiable appetite for royalty. A coronation, they explain, is when the church recognizes the king, who takes an oath to defend Protestantism against Catholicism. Charles actually became King of England the moment his mother the Queen died, but the coronation ceremony solidifies it. This is a good example of what is going on right now with Jesus. In His ascension, Jesus became King of all the world. But, our waiting for the second coming of Christ is almost like waiting for the coronation of the King. Jesus is still the King, and there will be a day in the future when everybody on earth stops for His coronation.
Scripture commands us to honor our king, and though they do not deserve it, we should obey this commandment. King Charles has tripled in popularity since the death of Queen Elizabeth and is set up to inherit the throne with the accolades of people all around the world. Every world leader of respect will be in attendance at the coronation ceremony. The guys particularly look forward to the opportunity churches have to reach millions at the coronation. They touch on the excitement of handing out their tracts at the coronation this coming May.
Finally, the guys discuss a common current opinion that King Charles is the Antichrist. By definition, the Antichrist is supposed to be a “man of lawlessness.” King Charles, given his position, is above the law and it is impossible for him to be prosecuted. The guys are not urging anyone to actively worship the king, but we should be wary of such theories and instead use this as an opportunity to proclaim the gospel. Their excitement for this moment lies in the opportunity it presents to share the gospel with millions of people. As Christians, our hearts should explode with excitement when we think of unity for the sake of the gospel. Operation London is the perfect example of how believers, regardless of our differences in eschatological views, can gather together for one day.
