Phil Robertson ‘Fired Up’ About Being Part of God’s ‘Eternal Kingdom’

By Movieguide® Contributor

DUCK DYNASTY legend Phil Robertson is all “fired up” about God’s eternal kingdom and the hope that lies in Jesus Christ.

“I’m fired up about being in a kingdom. We have an invisible king, but He’s all over the earth, and the kingdom is growing, and it’s been tried to wipe it out over and over and over, but we’re all still here,” Robertson said in an Instagram clip from his podcast on June 8.

“This doesn’t just encourage me — it gets me fired up,” he continued in the caption. “I hope it does the same for you.”

Robertson finds solace in the fact that, ultimately, nothing will destroy faith in God and the hope of eternity in heaven.

“We’re part of an eternal kingdom that will never expire and can never be crushed,” he said. “The evil one has tried time and time again to wipe it out, but he never will. Jesus is King of kings and Lord of lords, and he will always triumph.”

He finished with a passage from Colossians: “’For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.’ —Colossians 1:13–14.”

His own story of redemption is told in the movie THE BLIND. Before THE BLIND’s release, Robertson said that the movie’s creation is worth it if it helps bring just one person to know Christ.

Well, it’s helped a whole lot more than one.

“Korie, who is married to Phil’s son, Willie, said the family has heard countless stories of those who’ve been baptized, delivered from addiction or seen their marriages healed after watching the movie. Some of the baptisms, she said, have happened right in Phil’s backyard,” The Christian Post said.

After many watched the movie, they went to the river immediately after and got baptized and worshipped God.

“I wish we knew how many thousands of people have been baptized in that river right behind Phil and Kay’s house because Phil loves to baptize people and has done it right there in his backyard for years and years and years,” Korie said.

Part of Movieguide®’s review of THE BLIND reads:

THE BLIND refers to a duck blind where his friend, Al, and Phil Robertson are hunting in 1985. Phil tells Al his Christian testimony. The movie cuts to 1958 when Phil is a little boy. Phil’s father worked in the oil fields, away from home for long periods. As a youngster, Phil goes hunting and fishing to bring food home for his family. Phil’s mother has psychotic experiences where she just gets angry at everything and is hauled off by police several times. Phil’s only blessing is Kay. They know in high school they’re destined for each other. Phil gives up a football scholarship to marry Kay. His excessive drinking leads to a downward spiral. Kay gives Phil an ultimatum, but can he change.

THE BLIND is a good movie as a Christian testimony. That said, it doesn’t follow the rules of filmmaking. So, it may not win a big audience. The movie is propelled by the jeopardy, and vice and drinking, but Jesus is extolled . THE BLIND is a rough movie. So, MOVIEGUIDE® advises caution, especially for children and young teenagers.

Movieguide® previously reported on Robertson’s faith:

“If you’ve seen my story in THE BLIND, you know what I did to my family all those years ago,” he said. “I rebelled against God every way I could. Commode-hugging drunkenness, lust, greed, anger – I knew them all to well. I let the enemy of my soul tempt me to become my own god, and for a long time, I didn’t know how to find my way back.”

“If not for Miss Kay and Jan refusing to give up on me, I don’t know where I’d be,” Robertson continued. “The Lord won’t give up on you either, no matter what your past looks like. It’s amazing that we miss that.”
