The Writer’s Hope
[the writer’s hope is that what he wrote is alright]
It is this writer’s hope that Mark’s Imaginings
Becomes required reading in junior high and high school and college classrooms throughout the earth.
[the writer isn’t sure, right now, that there will be schools and classrooms and colleges much longer. It looks like the great tribulation is about to occur that will bring an end to the world system].
However, if the world does continue for a while longer, then . . .
Let these stories become the subject matter of discussions in the classroom, and the subject matter of homework. Let the children walk home from school thinking about these stories and their characters. People need hope.
The world lies in wickedness
And its wickedness is making our lives hopeless . . . unless we believe in the gospel of God and his kingdom.

The Truth of the Matter
(The Matter of Our Human Lives)
It isn’t all about you, nor me, nor us, nor U.S., nor the USA
It’s all about True God
The Creator and Sustainer of All Things –
Things in heaven, things on earth, things visible, things invisible, things temporary and things eternal.
It’s all about Him –
However, the gospel – which means “good news” – is that in the regeneration of all things — as prophesied in the Holy Scriptures – True God will be with those who have believed in Him during their human lives on earth in this present generation. He is going to resurrect the dead; and regenerate both them and those who are faithfully living at the time of His Second Coming. And He is going to be with them, eternally. And He is Love and Light and Spirit, according to the Scriptures.
“Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, ‘Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.
“And he who was seated on the throne said, ‘Behold, I am making all things new.’ Also he said, ‘Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.’ And he said to me, ‘It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give from the spring of water of life without payment. The one who conquers will have this heritage, and I will be his God and he will be my son. But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.” -Revelation 21:1-8. ESV Study Bible.

Until we are born again and receive the love of the truth and receive His Holy Spirit as Sovereign in and over our heart and mind and body and soul and spirit forever, we just don’t have an understanding about the things pertaining to eternal life in Christ.
“And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding, so that we may know him who is true; and we are in him who is true, in his Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life. Little children, keep yourselves from idols.” -1 John 5:20, 21. ESV Study Bible.
If you choose to be an unbeliever – or to believe in something else — or anything else or anyone else – True God will not stop you. You are free to choose to remain separate from Him and eternal life; and separate from the regeneration of all things in glory – including the regeneration unto glory of your own God-given body and soul. You’re free to remain deceived and deluded – just as Eve was deceived in the garden of Eden. If you choose to go on in unbelief and in false pride and contempt and hard-heartedness; and indulge in the pleasures of the flesh and in worldliness and devilry and sorcery and in the doctrines of demons, the Savior of all men, particularly of true believers, will not stop you.
“And he said to me, ‘Do not seal up the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is near. Let the evil doer still do evil, and the filthy still be filthy, and the righteous still do right, and the holy still be holy.”
“Behold, I am coming soon, bringing my recompense with me, to repay everyone for what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.”
“Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life and that they may enter the city by the gates. Outside are the dogs and the sorcerers and the sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.” -Revelation 22:10-15 ESV Study Bible.

“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who conquers I will give some of the hidden manna, and I will give him a white stone, with a new name written on the stone that no one knows except the one who receives it.” -Revelation 2:17. ESV Study Bible.

As he said,
“I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?”
“She said to him, ‘Yes, Lord; I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, who is coming into the world.’” -John 11:25b-27 ESV Study Bible.
As the apostle Paul wrote by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit:
“Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith – that I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, that by any means possible I may attain the resurrection from the dead.” -Philippians 3:8-11 ESV Study Bible.

The world is not our hope anymore than The Titanic was the hope of all those on board that doomed ship. It was only those who humbly got on board the simple lifeboats who were saved.
“So when God desired to show more convincingly to the heirs of the promise the unchanging character of his purpose, he guaranteed it with an oath, so that by two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled for refuge might have strong encouragement to hold fast to the hope set before us. We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the inner place behind the curtain, where Jesus has gone as a forerunner on our behalf, having become a high priest forever after the order of Melchizedek.” -Hebrews 6:17-20.
