If you don’t know that we are living in a spiritual battle, then you’re kidding yourself! The enemy- Satan, is having a field day fooling people, making them believe that he doesn’t exist. Make no mistake about it, he is alive awaiting to ruin the souls of those who are weak, have little or no faith and who don’t live a godly life. “We are a culture in decline, our whole world is entrenched in sin! “ says Jim Caviezel.

The world as I see it now, is changing at an alarming rate. Society is moving towards a fluid gender, redefining marriage, euthanasia, abortion, lack of freedom of speech, fake media, secularism, drugs, depression and anxiety, crime etc. I know by talking to people and from observation, that we are entrenched in sin!!! The world still needs to be saved.
Here’s the catch!!! When Jesus comes again, it will be His final. There is no salvation beyond death. We all need to wake up and go back, back to the truth, because it’s only the truth through Jesus Christ, that will set us free.
Thank God for Mel Gibson who directed his first religious movie with the “PASSION OF THE CHRIST”and who is now in his final stage of completing the sequel- “THE RESURRECTION.” His first movie “THE PASSION” became the most popular independent movie ever made.
Mel Gibson took a real gamble with the first one, he wasn’t in it for the money because he stood to lose everything, but for his passion for Christ. The same could be said for the main actor- Jim Caviezel who plays the role of Christ. If you listen to his testimony, you will hear that he had a calling , he even has the same initials JC. Mel Gibson told him in a phone conversation that he may never work in Hollywood again after making the movie, but again for his passion for Christ, Jim Caviezel went ahead with it. Just listen to his testimonies below!!!!! All I can say is what followers of Christ both of these men are.
Jim sacrificed his health to complete the two movies and not because he had to, but because he wanted to. How many people can boast that they are true followers of Christ and have taken up their crosses willingly for Christ?
You may think that the health issues Jim had to endure during the movies were collateral damage. Not quite! When the enemy knows you are about to change, convert, build, evangelise for the Kingdom of God, be sure that the enemy is going to try and derail, disturb, destroy, mame, kill etc…. however he can, for whatever will raise and build up the kingdom of God. But Jesus conquered death and ransomed his life for ours. There is power in the name of Jesus Christ. But you have to want it, pray it, live it.
The movie is in its third year of production and it should be coming out this year I would think, during this Easter season which ends with the feast of the Ascension- the fortieth day after Easter Sunday, commemorating the Ascension of Christ into heaven, according to Mark 16:19, Luke 24:51, and Acts 1:2. As it is written in “The Apostles Creed,” Jesus descended into hell, (imagine the battle scenes there) to collect his faithfuls from the Old Testament because prior to Jesus’death and resurrection no-one could enter heaven. Jesus ransomed Himself so that we may have new life with Him. Hence death and new life comes through Jesus Christ only.
Below are some excerpts, testimonies and interviews so that you can judge for yourself.
Then, if you want to be a follower and not just a fan of Christ, stand up for the truth, be a warrior for Christ, make your life a little uncomfortable, pray, fast, worship the God who died to know you_ JESUS THE CHRIST!! The alpha and the omega.
