As of late I have been watching the new trends in movies and I see something happening, that is disconcerting to my mind. I must say though, I had heard of it before and yet, it disturbs me every time I hear it. After the Rapture takes place people will be searching for the cause of so many people disappearing.
What I have found out is that they will believe a lie, that they are gone because of extraterrestrial beings. The gradient concerning this has skyrocketed to an awesome level! The production of these types of movies is on the rise and their popularity as well. How odd is this? So far, we do not have a single shred of “hard evidence” that there are other beings to begin with throughout outer space or inner space for that matter. And the Bible says they do NOT exist.
Is this what most people think? Do they have any idea of the “facts” at hand? I do understand how some people could believe in extraterrestrials, the big silver screen has played its magic for decades on many people. However, in the technology of today it seems to be easier and this is mostly attributable to the introduction of the advanced level of computer graphics. I am sure many have gone to the movies and walked away in virtual awe of the movie.
Take for a moment the advent of the computer age. We NO longer MUST use cursive writing skills; we do not have to write out our number problems on paper with a pencil…we have computers and calculators! I do understand that using them is quicker and more accurate, but does this make it better? If you say, “Yes,” then better for whom? Additionally, what have you learned? Remember, our number system as well as our lives follow the concept of linear measurement. Or don’t you understand the essence of time?
CGI (Computer Generated Imagery) has the ability to make fantasy seem to be reality. This technology is not new by any stretch and has been used extensively in movies and on television for years the difference is that we are better at it than before. Do you remember in “Star Trek” where Captain Kirk would say, “Scotty…beam me up?” And then there would be this shimmering of light around Captain Kirk’s body and he would disappear and then he would reappear in the transport room? Wonderful (CGI) and the effects were astonishing!
These things are the things that I am talking about, simple “deception.” We do NOT possess that kind of real-life technology today but it looks so real on the screen! The characters become so real to us…we can’t wait for the next episode. Over time, we begin to use their “euphemisms” in everyday language and every episode replays the same wondrous CGI effects until we believe it to be true. Isn’t science wonderful, even though it is actively lying to you?
Do NOT think for one moment that this fantasy has remained solely the object of affection by the movie Industry. Science has played with that idea as well. They have even postulated what the little green men from Mars would actually look like and they are not little and green, wearing glass bubble helmets. The facts are, they do NOT exist, except in our imagination! Science does know that repeated exposure to information of any type will lead a person to believe that fantasy…is actually real!
This is the exact spot where harm can and does at times…exist. Let’s say you grow up in a very secular home with secular minded parents and schools (they still teach evolution). You, like everyone else enjoys the movies and so it’s a good thing for your parents, especially when they are so busy with other things. By the time you reach 18 years old how many movies do you think you have watched?
I cannot accurately say but suffice it that it to say that it was quite a lot! How would any of these movies have a direct effect on what you believe in? That is my point. How many movies or TV shows tell about the Lord Jesus Christ, or teach you about the Ten Commandments, the lives of the apostles, the Israelites, how the universe was actually created? Few…if ever!
So now, look at the situation concerning the Rapture! Are you going to believe what the Bible says or what the movies and TV shows say? Do you remember the “subliminal messages” that were used back in the 50s or 60s? Does that make you wonder a little bit about what they may be doing today, to everyone watching movies and TV shows? “Hmmm. Let’s see, how can we control the masses”? Or is that too big of a stretch for you?
Here’s another example: How about the military and “basic training” or “boot camp?” You must follow orders…no matter the outcome…that could be your death. Does that hit home a little?
There is a reason why God telling us in 2 Corinthians 6.17-18, emphasis added:
“Wherefore come out from among them [the world] and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And I will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.”
The Almighty God already knew where we would be and what we would be doing with our time and also what we would believe. The world is full of sin and suffering and God did not want us to be living in that manner and believing the foolishness of the world. Remember that Satan is the “prince of the air” and he is also the “father of lies.”
John 8.42-47, emphasis added:
“Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love Me, for I proceeded forth and have come from God, for I have not even come on My own initiative, but He sent Me. “Why do you not understand what I am saying?
It is because you cannot hear My word. “You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him.
Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies. “But because I speak the truth, you do not believe Me.” Which one of you convicts Me of sin? If I speak truth, why do you not believe Me? “He who is of God hears the words of God; for this reason you do not hear them, because you are not of God.”
This, my friends is the truth and this goes to show WHO is a liar…Satan. And WHO rules the world?? Think about it! Taking these Scriptures as truth we see how the scenario at the beginning is plausible! What better excuse can the governments of the world use than that, concerning extraterrestrial beings abducting those millions and millions of people in the blink of the eye? And then to think, all those left behind will…“believe a lie?”
2 Thessalonians 2.11: “And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion that they should believe a lie.”
And so there you are, written in black and white, the absolute truth, according to God’s Word the Bible! Of course, this is not the only lie those left behind will believe, just the more insidious one and also the one that is going to be used the most, that we see being perpetrated today.
Ephesians 2.1-2: “And you hath he quickened (made alive) who were dead in trespasses and sins; Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience.”
Is it any wonder then why we spend so much time reading and studying the Bible? It IS the Word of God to us. The Bible is preparing us for living today, what we should be watching for and why. It tells us why we try and show others what we have learned according to the Scriptures and what the truth actually is. The Rapture is so very, very, close and so many are going to be left behind and yet…there is still hope!
This not an endeavor to bring gloom and doom to anyone, we are not trying to “scare” anyone into heaven! It IS the truth…the Rapture is coming very, very, soon and there is no reason that anyone should be left behind!
There is room in heaven for every one of us, as God would choose for it to be! Why would anyone choose to be deceived? Deception on any level is nothing more than a LIE…and believing a lie makes you an idiot…no one wants to be an idiot!! Yet that is exactly what is going to happen! Understanding that, WHY must that idiot be YOU?
