HELLYWOOD AND AWARD NIGHTS

Image result for nothing imperfect shall enter heaven bible

A TV award winning show was on during the week and the hosts publicly blasphemed the name of Jesus Christ. They said and I quote….” only republicans and ex-crack heads say thank-you to Jesus Christ” this and among other distorted and horrible remarks, were witnessed by a large live audience made up of Hollywood stars who clapped and laughed at all this and witnessed by home viewers covering a large world demography   Click right utube link to award night

I was so offended by this, that they would reduce Jesus Christ who sacrificed his life for our salvation to a joke, something to laugh at and to be used for entertainment. SHAME ON THEM!!!!

I know who I am and where I am going. One might say that not everybody believes. Sure! God doesn’t force Himself upon anyone and He has given us all a free will. Yes, but an evil, a sin has still be committed and worse, a sin that spans across a wide demography.  God makes it possible for everyone to find Him. At the end, there will be no excuse.  But judgement day will come for all and what will God say? The first thing He will say is ….”what have you done with my Son Jesus Christ who sacrificed his life for you, so that you may be saved?”

We will all have to answer this question and we will all be judged according to the faith and works we have done in Jesus’ name.

So then, wouldn’t one rather be judged by God who is the almighty, all loving all knowing, all forgiving God for all mankind,  rather than be judged by men who are flawed, biased, indiscriminate and judgmental????  In Revelation 21: 27 it says….” nothing imperfect shall enter heaven

Before Jesus, there was no heaven, Jesus made it possible for us to enter into God’s kingdom- Jesus the mediator who makes the impossible possible through His death and resurrection is what we should all aspire to.

We should not be toying with our salvation. Salvation is for eternity!

PRAYER:

Father in Heaven,

Please help those of little or no faith grow in love and understanding of the gift of Your Son Jesus Christ, who lived and sacrificed His life so that we may be saved. Please make us worthy of the glory of heaven, through Your Son Jesus Christ we pray.  AMEN!

MARY MAGDALENE _THE MOVIE_ TOTAL DECEPTION AND FULL OF LIES

Joaquin Phoenix and Rooney Mara are good actors but not right for this movie.
Image result for movie mary magdalene 2018Joaquin Phoenix an atheist himself, and Rooney Mara  brought nothing to the movie to render their roles credible. Neither actors have the soul to accurately portray the spirit of Jesus and Mary Magdalene. Bible truths were twisted and omitted out of scenes altogether.

There were many inaccurate parts to this movie and I will attempt to discuss some prominent ones.

Jesus played by Joaquin Phoenix is portrayed as a tortured soul and there was no softness and deity about Him at all. His face looked harsh and twisted and his eyes did not reflect the Son Of God- God incarnate. They say that the eyes are the windows to the soul, well, in this movie there is no soul.

The real Jesus has two natures a human and divine nature, of which I didn’t see any. In the movie, Jesus and Mary Magdalene had this exclusivity thing going on between them and their smirk was unreal. In real life they are a couple. The bible does not depict Jesus and Mary Magdalene in that way. There was no sexual connection between them. Jesus was solely focused on the will of God.

The twelve apostles are really insignificant in this movie and it makes Mary Magdalene the heroine and forerunner for the movement. Biblically, in Matthew 16, Jesus gives to Peter the keys of the kingdom. The Church was founded upon Peter, one among the twelve is chosen to lead. The movie ends with Mary Magdalene and a group of other women who get behind her, to lead instead.  Peter is very  judgemental and Mary leaves him and the other apostles very disgruntled which is untrue.

Palm Sunday was really insignificant in this movie, Jesus does not enter Jerusalem on a donkey, instead He walks in with a face full of angst.  In the bible (Matthew 21) Jesus’  humble entrance on a donkey into Jerusalem clearly illustrates that God is humble. Shortly afterwards, the movie shows the money lenders outside the temple as a marketplace,  I have never seen a more angry Jesus being very destructive and pulling walls and balustrading down with his bare hands. In the bible, Jesus shows an angry outburst against corruption by turning tables upside down and cleansing that area. (Jn 2:13-25)

In the movie, the agony in the Garden of Gethsemane scene, was very inaccurate. Jesus didn’t ask the apostles to keep watch, Jesus is not agonising over what was to come and there was no communication with Father God. It didn’t show Jesus’ fear and human nature and how He deals with his agony. There was no cutting of the servant’s ear. In John 18, Simon Peter, who had a sword, drew it and struck the high priest’s servant, cutting off his right ear. These events are really important as they depict the gentleness, the human and divine natures of Jesus.

The Last Supper being the crucial part in the bible, where Jesus washes the disciples’ feet to show that we should be like servants for one another, was not depicted at all. The “upper room discourse” (John 14-16) and how Jesus through prayer, instituted The First Eucharist as the real presence in the bread and the wine of Jesus’ body in communion,  was omitted.

Good Friday has many flaws in the movie, Mary the mother of Jesus was hardly there and yet she was the steadfast woman disciple of Jesus from beginning to end. The women didn’t even meet Jesus on his way to Calvary, Veronica didn’t even wipe his face. The conversion of Simon of Cyrene  and his bearing of the Cross for Christ  which is dramatic because he suddenly walked to Jesus to help him carry his cross didn’t happen  It failed to show conversion of ordinary people.

The other two thieves crucified beside Jesus weren’t really visible and the dialogue between the good thief and Jesus was not mentioned. The good thief’s dialogue with Jesus was an act of profound and public confession, contrition, and repentance for his sins and Jesus forgave him and took him to heaven with him. FORGIVENESS AND REPENTANCE ARE TWO IMPORTANT GOSPEL TEACHINGS OF JESUS but they weren’t important enough to be shown. If not for our salvation which only comes through Jesus Christ, what’s the point of this movie? Could it be for the attack and blasphemous attempt to discredit The Son of God, the Son of Man? Could it be to raise the power of women and to diminish the power of men, when we re all equal in the eyes of God?

This and other biblical movies should not be written without consultation from theologians of biblical truth. Nobody makes movies about Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism or other religions, why? Would it be because of riotous consequences that would follow? These movies unfortunately, can do a lot of damage to undiscerning minds, to people who are searching and beginning their faith journey.

I say beware of false information, get your sources right, ask people who are practicing the true religion for the whole truth and beware of “Hellywood” as The Vigilant Christian sais.

I will finish by saying that Jesus is the authority, Jesus is the lawgiver, he humbly came to earth to teach us the truth in order to save us. In the bible, people flocked to Him, people couldn’t get enough of Him. In the movie, people were not part of the equation and  the depiction of Jesus showed a twisted and tortured soul which didn’t make me or anyone want to be near Him.  Satan knows the bible better than anyone else, his ploy is to use the truth and twist a lie to make you believe, he is the master of deception.

PRAYER
Dear Jesus,

I believe that You came into this world as the Son of God, that You are God incarnate. Through your Holy Spirit, expose the darkness and bring us into the light. Protect our minds and hearts from what we see and hear and from Satan’s attacks. I believe that You are our saviour and redeemer and You sacrificed your life because You loved us first. Please make us worthy of your sacrifice. AMEN

No, I’m not prophesying the end of the world, but be aware that every action you take is accounted for.  All good works aligned with biblical teaching are planting seeds that will blossom in the life to come. Not half truths though, in God’s realm there is no grey area, you’re either for Him or against Him.

You make a mistake, take a wrong turn, make bad choices?????  No problem!!!!! Nothing you could ever do would make God turn away from you. Like a father who wants the best for his child, God’s love is unconditional.

Pick yourself up and keep trying. God knows what’s in your heart.

Do not lose focus on eternal salvation. To God through Jesus, is the only way. God has raised His Son Jesus above all other names.

JESUS CHRIST-THE COMPLETE TRUTH AND FULLNESS OF LIFE

All religions reflect a ray of truth which enlightens all men, but Jesus is the complete truth, Jesus is the way the truth and the life (John 14:6).                       Everything else is a distraction.

Jesus the beloved Son of God, Jesus the one and only begotten son of God (John 3:16), Jesus the teacher, Jesus the healer, Jesus the redeemer, Jesus the miracle worker, Jesus who won life over death, Jesus the absolute truth, Jesus the good shepherd, Jesus the sacrificial lamb, Jesus the saviour, Jesus the life giver, Jesus the alpha and the omega, Jesus the anointed one,  Jesus the Messiah, that’s who I want beside me.(see older post below for more titles)

Jesus died and rose to new life. Jesus has appeared to many people especially during the post resurrection period.  The disciples were not, of course, the only ones who had visions of Jesus after he died. The disciples weren’t the only ones to hear the message that He was with His Father God and that He  has made a place for us.  People continued to see Jesus alive afterwards and continue to see Him today. Anything else would be a huge risk. Are you willing to risk your eternity?

NO SIN IS UNFORGIVABLE UNDER GOD

YES!!!! THAT’S RIGHT!!!!! 

IF YOU ACCEPT GOD AND HIS SON JESUS CHRIST, SINCERELY!


In Matthew 12:31 Jesus says, “Therefore I tell you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven.”

Looking at the Catechism of the Catholic Church, blasphemy against the Holy Spirit is the “deliberate refusal” to accept God’s mercy and forgiveness (no. 1864). Six species of this sin have been identified over time as (1) Despair; (2) Presumption; (3) Impenitence or a firm determination not to repent; (4) Obstinacy; (5) Resisting divine truth known to be such; and (6) Envy of another’s spiritual welfare.

GOD WILL GIVE YOU EVERY CHANCE AND OPPORTUNITY TO ACCEPT HIS LOVE AND MERCY BUT IF YOU DON’T ACCEPT IT SINCERELY, THEN THAT’S UNPARDONABLE!!!!

SALVATION IS OFFERED TO ALL BY THE GRACE OF GOD. HOWEVER, NOT ALL SINS ARE THE SAME THERE IS ATONEMENT TO BE MADE BEFORE HEAVEN

(REVELATION 21:27) Nothing impure will ever enter it, nor will anyone who does what is shameful or deceitful, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life.

Book of Life – What is it?
The Book of Life (also called The Lamb’s Book of Life) is a record containing the names of those who have overcome sin through accepting Jesus as Christ  In other words, the Book of Life is the names of the redeemed—those who will live with God forever in heaven.
