All The Kings Are Dying-A Parable by DealDoctor
The old king has had a fatal illness for several years but now he is very near his death. The best physicians surround him and they all have given the same diagnosis and it is that the king is definitely dying, there is no hope of reversal and he could die at any moment. Indeed he could die any second now and certainly it will be soon. Yet the king is not dead.
Each day the strong young prince of the realm comes to see his father and consults with the doctors from across the land and each day they say the same thing. There is no hope that the king will survive much longer and in fact they would have expected him to die several months ago. The physicians are mystified how the old king as survived this long on his deathbed. The case is unprecedented and a first in the history of the world.
The prince has many wives and it seems each day he has more children each of whom will come into a great inheritance the very day the old king dies. Their numbers grow daily and yet the old king lives on and both the prince and his children, until the king dies, actually own nothing because in this realm the king owns everything. So the children of the prince all wait knowing their inheritance is certain but day after day the news is the same the old king still lives.

As the prince looks around the world he sees that all the kings the other nations are deathly ill as well but none so are so ill as his father. The odd thing is that all the other kings are can only survive so long as they get the black and gold medicine that is made by the businesses of the prince’s nation. So long as the old king lives they know they will not be sold the amounts of the black and gold medicine they need. It is as if the medicine from the prince’s country is the very blood that courses through their veins and each day they grow more anemic and weary.
The kings of the other nations agree they must act to insure the death of the old king because they know the new prince will have a completely different policy, which will cause the black and gold medicine to flood their nations and revive their own health. Some say the most powerful kings of other nations have gathered and conspire to control the moment of the old king’s death. Yet their joint effort has not yet resulted in the old king’s death.
The black and gold medicine they need is in short supply in their own nations and a solution is needed more each moment. It is as if not only is the old king in the process of dying but the entire old world is dying right along with him and their only hope is the death of the old king who controls the black and gold medicine everyone needs. It seems the other powerful kings could have the old king killed at anytime but they are such rivals they can not act in harmony even for their own benefit but pressure for that action grows on each of them each day.
Yet there is CERTAIN HOPE for all because no one doubts that the old king has a fatal illness. No one inside or outside of the country doubts that the new prince will be a much more desirable ruler of the nation when he becomes king both for the benefit of those in the nation and those outside of the nation. It will bring a great change to not only the prince’s kingdom but will bring a great change to the entire old world when the old king dies and the prince becomes king.
Some physicians read articles and books to discover exactly when and how the king will die while other physicians know no matter of reading will help and that books and life should match but so often do not match. Instead they call other physicians who are near the dying king to check progress or they call those in touch with the other kingdoms to see if they have finally decided to act together to kill the dying king.
Those who read books and articles all agree that the king is progressing closer and closer to death. It is a textbook case! The news on every front says exactly the same thing the king will die soon due to the natural processes of death at internally at work or due to outside intervention by other kings. In either case all physicians agree the days of the old king are but few and they all know things will change when the now prince becomes the new king. Everyone wants the change and that includes the most powerful kings of the earth.
The death of the old king COULD happen at any moment, it SHOULD have happened long before now, it certainly MIGHT happen at any second due to natural process or outside intervention. No honest physician however is willing to say it WILL HAPPEN on any certain date but every informed physician says that it certainly WILL HAPPEN. The old king will die.
The prince will become the new king with a new set of policies. All the children of the prince will come into a great inheritance. No one is willing to say exactly how rich the new king’s family will be because they honestly do not know. Things change inside and outside of the nation on a daily basis and the exact wealth of the new king’s children depends on so many fluid factors. No one doubts they will be rich but exactly how rich the honest will not say.
This is an old story. There is nothing new under the sun. The entire world needs the black and gold medicine. The world values what the kingdom has to offer it in the marketplace and is willing to pay dearly for it and that influx of cash will cause all the children of the prince to inherit great riches. The whole thing is a TIMIING issue but in time it will certainly happen. Either the kings of the other nations will grudgingly agree to carry out their plot and kill the old king or the king will die of natural causes. In either scenerio no man knows the actual day or the hour the old king will die and the prince will become the new king. No man not even the prince, son of the king, knows the date of the old king’s death or exactly how much the kingdom will be worth on that day.
How strange are the things of life and death and new birth. Matthew 24:36 is a Bible verse that causes even the wisest theologians to scratch their heads and be honestly baffled. No man knows the day or the hour not even the Son! It is ok to be baffled as you face the mystery of life in this world of dying kings and dying kingdoms that bring the birth of new kings and new kingdoms. It is often wisdom to give no exact dates but-even so- the dying of the old and the birth of the new surely and certainly will happen. Count it a DONE deal! It will happen suddenly like a thief comes in the night! The words will be heard, “The king is dead. Long lives the king!”
On that day many will remain in poverty as many are under any king but the children of the prince will become very wealthy. Who would doubt such a fact! The most powerful kings in the world are starving for the black and gold medicine and to the new king on they will arrive with cash in hand ready to buy what they desire. Without it they and their kingdoms will die. The new king will share the new wealth with his children simply because they are his children and besides they have official little funny looking papers to prove it. KNOW THIS!
