Malaysia Flight 370: A harbinger from God for the August 21, 2017 eclipse and September 9, 2017 Revelation 12 sign – “birth of a new son.”

For those who have Facebook reading ADD, here’s Ray’s attention-deficit executive summary:

The August 21 eclipse and the September 9 birth of a “male son” are both linked to the disappearance of Malaysia Flight 370, having served as a harbinger, mathematically connected by 1,260 days or 3.5 years, per the Biblical reference to the Great Tribulation.

This concludes my ADD summary for you, but please continue reading…

I believe God has revealed that the disappearance of Malaysian Flight 370 was a forerunner warning of Rev. 12, where we’re told the “woman was given the two wings of a great eagle, so that she might fly to the place prepared for her in the wilderness, where she would be taken care of for a time, times and half a time, out of the serpent’s reach.”

(1) The symbolism of the eagle could represent an airplane (and or angels with wings).

(2) “Flown to safety in the wilderness” may symbolize the vanished plane.

(3) “A time, times and half a time” may be viewed as 1,260 days or 42 months or 3 years 6 months, which all refer to the first half of the Great Tribulation.

(4) Note the airplane was a Boeing 777. God’s completion and perfection number is 7 or 777 as a Trinity. 2017 is the year 777 (5777) in Hebrew.

Malaysia flight 370 vanished on March 8, 2014.

(a) A count of 1,260 days connect in time the plane’s disappearance date and the August 21, 2017 Great American Eclipse (last warning).

(b) If one harbinger is not convincing enough, a count of 42 months or 3 years and 6 months link the plane’s disappearance to the September 9, 2017’s birth of a new son, as Jupiter exits Virgo, possibly representing the rebirth of God’s Church and the start to His royal nation of Christians (Rapture).

227 passengers were aboard, with 12 crew members for a total of 239.

12 = gate of new Jerusalem; 12 angels guarding gates; 12 tribes of Judah; 12 Disciples of Jesus…

Interesting verses with 227 in the chapter/verse:

“The king was enraged. He sent his army and destroyed those murderers and burned their city.”
– Matthew 22:7

“As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about all things and as that anointing is real, not counterfeit—just as it has taught you, remain in him.”
– 1 John 2:27

“…one ‘will rule them with an iron scepter and will dash them to pieces like pottery’[b]—just as I have received authority from my Father.
– Revelation 2:27

“Look, I am coming soon! Blessed is the one who keeps the words of the prophecy written in this scroll.”
– Revelation 22:7

If you care about where you stand in your relationship with God through Jesus (reconciled or separated), NOW is the time for you and your people (family, friends) to respond to Him and assure you are ready for the first call (Rapture) before the Tribulation. Your worst mistake is ignoring His repeated and gracious visible warnings to all people in past and current events, many linking to THIS time in Biblical history. Call on Christ as your Savior; repent from your wrongdoings; be in prayer with God through Jesus; be watchful; be ready.

God says we all will go through the fire to be refined. That tells me each of us experience the “fire” in (1) life, in the (2) Great Tribulation and/or the (3) final lake of fire. I pray that God finds you refined through life and ready now, rather than the awful thought of you or your loved ones going through the fire of the Tribulation or being cast into the lake of fire.

“…I will refine them like silver and test them like gold. They will call on my name and I will answer them; I will say, ‘They are my people,’ and they will say, ‘The LORD is our God.'”
Zechariah 13:9

Only God knows the exact time, but the events I mention are scientifically proven. What each means comes only through God. While I don’t know God’s plan for the events – whether is another harbinger for future events hundreds of years from now, I do however believe these are clear revelations from God and have made comments as to what thoughts come to mind when analyzing. Only God knows the events, dates and what each signifies. May God’s Will be done.

Signs of Revelation at the 2017 NFL Draft.

Event from April 28, 2017:

God continues to pour out visions of symbolism and warning for upcoming events. These visions should serve as both a comfort to true fruit-producing Christians and a warning to those who have not accepted Jesus and are not found faithful to Him. These visions and parallels are happening day-to-day so frequently, I hardly have the time to construct the proper words to describe in writing.
History is repeating itself, over and over and over…

Just last night, when least expecting it and the thought never even entering my mind beforehand, I turned on the TV and there it was all over the NFL draft – symbolism and representations that have parallels dating to centuries ago and throughout mankind, to current day. I believe these events to be further confirmation and evidence of the quickly arriving Tribulation. Public happenings viewed by many, one cannot dismiss as random events of chance.

This subject is very fresh, but here is what I saw, and it will continue tonight at the Philadelphia Museum of Art (known as the Parthenon on the Parkway), so you may turn in live and see for yourself:

Names, words and visuals that all relate to the book of Revelation:

For the first time ever the NFL draft is held outdoors in Philadelphia, the first capital of our nation (birth). John of Patmos addresses the “Church of Philadelphia” in Revelation 3.

The Church of Philadelphia is thought to represent God’s people (Christians). Among the seven churches mentioned in Revelation, it is the only church the Lord registers no complaint against – it’s the church that delights Christ.

Our Philadelphia was named after the Biblical “Philadelphia” which was founded by King Attallus of Pergamum, whose nickname was Philadelphus, meaning “lover of a brother or brotherly love.” This man was noted for the admiration and love he had for his brother, Eumenes, and he named this city in honor of him. The Philadelphia period is known as the Great Awakening of the 18th century and during the Philadelphian era, the great conflict between truth and terror reached its pinnacle (sounds like today’s world?).

In the Revelation letter to the church of Philadelphia, there is mention of a portion of the city (the evil side – three Greek temples), which is called the “seat of Satan” by Jesus; this is believed to be in reference to the Pergamum Alter (Alter of Zeus) built to honor the goddess Athena and Zeus, the king of the Greek gods. You might recognize this architectural design, because it has been duplicated throughout time and represented some of the greatest evil of mankind:
(a) Roman & Greek mythology (coming birth of “king planet” Jupiter in September 2017)
(b) pieces taken and reconstructed in Berlin, later a new design was built and used for Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Germany and extermination of God’s people (Jews)
(c) the design was replicated for Barack Obama’s DNC back-drop in Denver, Colorado (I believe is one of the beasts)
(d) The Philadelphia Museum of Art, where Pope Francis sat on the “seat of Satan” during mass on September 27, 2015 during the World Meeting of Families (I believe is a second beast)
(e) North Korea currently uses the same architectural setting for their show of military might and provocation

When the Museum of Art was being built, the Mayor of Philadelphia laid the cornerstone in a Masonic celebration (Freemason occult).
Camera scenes during the NFL draft shows color lighting shining off the Washington Monument (founding father) varies every few minutes and provides a visual of the 4 horsemen of Revelation. The lighting includes: a white horse, red horse, black horse (w/o lighting on it) and a green horse that may qualify as the greenish-ashen pale horse.

The Philadelphia team mascot is an eagle, representative of America and also found in various verses of Revelation as a symbol of protection and warning. Their helmet emblem is two eagle wings – “two wings of a great eagle” that carry off the woman (Israel) of Revelation 12 to the wilderness for temporary protection (first half of Tribulation). The eagles quarterback is referred to as “Ginger Jesus.”

Bible verses referenced:

To the Church in Pergamum
Revelation 2: 12-17
“To the angel of the church in Pergamum write:
These are the words of him who has the sharp, double-edged sword. I know where you live—where Satan has his throne. Yet you remain true to my name. You did not renounce your faith in me, not even in the days of Antipas, my faithful witness, who was put to death in your city—where Satan lives. Nevertheless, I have a few things against you: There are some among you who hold to the teaching of Balaam, who taught Balak to entice the Israelites to sin so that they ate food sacrificed to idols and committed sexual immorality. Likewise, you also have those who hold to the teaching of the Nicolaitans. Repent therefore! Otherwise, I will soon come to you and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.”

To the Church in Philadelphia
Revelation 3 7-13
“To the angel of the church in Philadelphia write:
These are the words of him who is holy and true, who holds the key of David. What he opens no one can shut, and what he shuts no one can open. I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name. I will make those who are of the synagogue of Satan, who claim to be Jews though they are not, but are liars—I will make them come and fall down at your feet and acknowledge that I have loved you. Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come on the whole world to test the inhabitants of the earth.
I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown. The one who is victorious I will make a pillar in the temple of my God. Never again will they leave it. I will write on them the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which is coming down out of heaven from my God; and I will also write on them my new name. Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”

The Seals
Revelation 6: 1-7
“I watched as the Lamb opened the first of the seven seals. Then I heard one of the four living creatures say in a voice like thunder, “Come!” I looked, and there before me was a white horse! Its rider held a bow, and he was given a crown, and he rode out as a conqueror bent on conquest. When the Lamb opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, “Come!” Then another horse came out, a fiery red one. Its rider was given power to take peace from the earth and to make people kill each other. To him was given a large sword.
When the Lamb opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come!” I looked, and there before me was a black horse! Its rider was holding a pair of scales in his hand. Then I heard what sounded like a voice among the four living creatures, saying, “Two pounds of wheat for a day’s wages, and six pounds of barley for a day’s wages, and do not damage the oil and the wine!” When the Lamb opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, “Come!” I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth.”

The Woman and the Dragon
Revelation 12
A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth. Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on its heads. Its tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that it might devour her child the moment he was born. She gave birth to a son, a male child, who “will rule all the nations with an iron scepter.” And her child was snatched up to God and to his throne. The woman fled into the wilderness to a place prepared for her by God, where she might be taken care of for 1,260 days.
Then war broke out in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. The great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.
Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say:
“Now have come the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Messiah.
For the accuser of our brothers and sisters, who accuses them before our God day and night,
has been hurled down.
They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony;
they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.
Therefore rejoice, you heavens and you who dwell in them!
But woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has gone down to you!
He is filled with fury, because he knows that his time is short.”
When the dragon saw that he had been hurled to the earth, he pursued the woman who had given birth to the male child. The woman was given the two wings of a great eagle, so that she might fly to the place prepared for her in the wilderness, where she would be taken care of for a time, times and half a time, out of the serpent’s reach. Then from his mouth the serpent spewed water like a river, to overtake the woman and sweep her away with the torrent. But the earth helped the woman by opening its mouth and swallowing the river that the dragon had spewed out of his mouth. Then the dragon was enraged at the woman and went off to wage war against the rest of her offspring—those who keep God’s commands and hold fast their testimony about Jesus.

The Two Witnesses
Revelation 11
I was given a stick for a measuring rod and told, “Get up and measure God’s Temple and Altar and everyone worshiping in it. Exclude the outside court; don’t measure it. It’s been handed over to non-Jewish outsiders. They’ll desecrate the Holy City for forty-two months.
“Meanwhile, I’ll provide my two Witnesses. Dressed in sackcloth, they’ll prophesy for one thousand two hundred sixty days. These are the two Olive Trees, the two Lampstands, standing at attention before God on earth. If anyone tries to hurt them, a blast of fire from their mouths will incinerate them – burn them to a crisp just like that.
They’ll have power to seal the sky so that it doesn’t rain for the time of their prophesying, power to turn rivers and springs to blood, power to hit earth with any and every disaster as often as they want. “When they’ve completed their witness, the Beast from the Abyss will emerge and fight them, conquer and kill them, leaving their corpses exposed on the street of the Great City spiritually called Sodom and Egypt, the same City where their Master was crucified.
For three and a half days they’ll be there – exposed, prevented from getting a decent burial, stared at by the curious from all over the world. Those people will cheer at the spectacle, shouting ‘Good riddance!’ and calling for a celebration, for these two prophets pricked the conscience of all the people on earth, made it impossible for them to enjoy their sins.
“Then, after three and a half days, the Living Spirit of God will enter them – they’re on their feet! – and all those gloating spectators will be scared to death.” I heard a strong voice out of Heaven calling, “Come up here!” and up they went to Heaven, wrapped in a cloud, their enemies watching it all. At that moment there was a gigantic earthquake – a tenth of the city fell to ruin, seven thousand perished in the earthquake, the rest frightened to the core of their being, frightened into giving honor to the God of Heaven.
The second doom is past, the third doom coming right on its heels.
The seventh Angel trumpeted. A crescendo of voices in Heaven sang out, The kingdom of the world is now the Kingdom of our God and his Messiah! He will rule forever and ever!
The Twenty-four Elders seated before God on their thrones fell to their knees, worshiped,
and sang, We thank you, O God, Sovereign-Strong, Who Is and Who Was. You took your great power and took over – reigned!
The angry nations now get a taste of your anger. The time has come to judge the dead, to reward your servants, all prophets and saints, Reward small and great who fear your Name, and destroy the destroyers of earth.
The doors of God’s Temple in Heaven flew open, and the Ark of his Covenant was clearly seen surrounded by flashes of lightning, loud shouts, peals of thunder, an earthquake, and a fierce hailstorm.

The Rider on a White Horse (Jesus’ return)
Revelation 19: 11-16
Then I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse! The one sitting on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war. His eyes are like a flame of fire, and on his head are many diadems, and he has a name written that no one knows but himself. 13 He is clothed in a robe dipped in blood, and the name by which he is called is The Word of God. And the armies of heaven, arrayed in fine linen, white and pure, were following him on white horses. From his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations, and he will rule them with a rod of iron. He will tread the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty. On his robe and on his thigh he has a name written, King of kings and Lord of lords.

The Trumpets
Revelation 8: 6-13
Then the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared to sound them.
The first angel sounded his trumpet, and there came hail and fire mixed with blood, and it was hurled down on the earth. A third of the earth was burned up, a third of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up.
The second angel sounded his trumpet, and something like a huge mountain, all ablaze, was thrown into the sea. A third of the sea turned into blood, a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.
The third angel sounded his trumpet, and a great star, blazing like a torch, fell from the sky on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water—the name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters turned bitter, and many people died from the waters that had become bitter.
The fourth angel sounded his trumpet, and a third of the sun was struck, a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of them turned dark. A third of the day was without light, and also a third of the night.
As I watched, I heard an eagle that was flying in midair call out in a loud voice: “Woe! Woe! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth, because of the trumpet blasts about to be sounded by the other three angels!”

Revelation 12 warning message from God, Father of Jesus, or simply a “normal” artistic performance by Beyoncé?

Many phrases were used to describe Beyoncé’s performance during the February 2017 Grammy Awards: beautiful, creepy, a celebration of motherhood, strange, daring, idolatrous, incredible, demonic, spiritual…  Personally, I have read just about every adjective except the one it actually is – A WARNING from God, Father of Jesus.

“Surely the Sovereign Lord does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets.”

– Amos 3:7

 

By itself Beyoncé’s performance may be argued to be whatever you personally watched and felt, reflective of where you are in life and your relationship to God – denial/separated or reconciled.  However, when considered in the context of the MANY other related mainstream signs, images and happenings just in the past few months alone, including: the Super Bowl, The Oscars, world/political events and the NFL draft, Beyoncé’s Grammy performance is consistent with those in nature and a clear message of warning from God about the events to come – Revelation and the Tribulation.

“In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams.”

– Acts 2:17

 

As you watch the video attached, here are just a few of the visions and symbols I noted as it relates to God’s Word in the Bible.

 

It begins with a visual of the opening lines of Revelation 12.  Beyoncé is shown as the “virgin” in the heavens, clothed with the sun and wearing a crown.  She is pregnant (notice it’s “twins” – God/Jesus vs Satan) and about to give birth – JUST like Revelation 12 states.

“And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for SIGNS, and for seasons, and for days, and years.”

– Genesis 1:14

 

“The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.  Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge.  They have no speech, they use no words; no sound is heard from them.  Yet their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world.”

– Psalm 19:1

 

She then speaks about “being born,” which relates to the son (The New Church, Jesus as ruler/head) being born in Revelation 12.

You will find many parallels and symbolism apparent, reaching all the way back to Genesis in the Bible: false deities from the Middle East, Asia and Africa, as well as the story of God’s redemption offered to mankind through Jesus’ death and resurrection.  Granted, the performance portions viewed in the light of our true Creator seem as mocking and blasphemous, where Satan has turned and twisted the original meaning for his own delusions for mankind.  However, I want to instead highlight what I believe is the “intent” from God, which is to provide us these obvious and blatant signs to capture our attention and put us on watch for His plan that is unfolding – the Coming Judgment of the earth.

I’m not here to bash the performance and its darker meanings – believe me, there’s lots of disturbing and sick aspects.  Instead, the “positive” that captured my attention was the goodness of God’s grace, love and mercy, alerting us ahead of what’s to come, so we are not caught “asleep” as were 5 of the 10 in the Parable of the Virgins (Christians).

It is the glory of God to conceal things, but the glory of kings is to search things out.”          – Proverbs 25:2

Besides the eerie computer generated motions and reverse movements, watch “wings” appear as Beyoncé’s arms (0:40 and again at 2:15), symbolic of the two wings of an eagle that take the woman (Israel, possibly America?) to safety for the first 1,260 days of the Tribulation.  In that same visual, God may be reminding us of the wings of the false deity Egyptian goddess Isis.  Transforming from mother to also a goddess is a twisted view of the “son who will rule” (with an iron septor), as found in Revelation 12.  Also note the old Isis goddess reference as it relates to what we know today as the other ISIS.  Additionally, the goddess Isis is known as the goddess of health, marriage and wisdom.  Notice how that relates to current world events involving healthcare reform, new marriage laws and the wisdom to know right from wrong.

At the 1 minute mark, there’s a reference to the false Hindu deities with many arms, like Kali and/or Parvati.  Bringing these false deities to “life,” you may now start to envision how the great delusion will unfold, where world/heavenly events will be interpreted by those already led astray, that their false gods are real and lead them away from the truth of the true Creator.  This similarly applies to those who now look to political leaders and government as their god.

At the 1:40 mark, there are creepy visuals and then the birth of the son (reference Revelation 12) is shown, but note it’s not just one child, but twins – one chasing the other.  To me this is symbolic of both the creation of man and woman, and it seems to point to the coming battle of The Tribulation – God/Jesus/The Church vs. Satan, good vs. evil, as seen throughout the Bible – sons at war with one another.  Also, it was interesting to note that the sex of Beyoncé’s twins is said to be one male and one female.

If Revelation 12 is about the birth of God’s New Church, it’s interesting that Beyoncé is singing about the “love of her life,” which is the same thing Jesus tells us is His love for The Church.

At the 3 minute mark, 12 women or worshipers appear wearing pointy headgear/halos, which is reminiscent of the 12 stars mentioned in Revelation 12; Jacob’s 12 sons; the 12 Tribes of Israel; the 12 Disciples of Jesus; 12 loaves of bread on the Tabernacle table as a regular food offering, etc.  The 12 then become 24, striking a parallel with Revelation.

“After this I looked, and there before me was a door standing open in heaven. And the voice I had first heard speaking to me like a trumpet said, ‘Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this.’  At once I was in the Spirit, and there before me was a throne in heaven with someone sitting on it.  And the one who sat there had the appearance of jasper and ruby. A rainbow that shone like an emerald encircled the throne.  Surrounding the throne were twenty-four other thrones, and seated on them were twenty-four elders. They were dressed in white and had crowns of gold on their heads.  From the throne came flashes of lightning, rumblings and peals of thunder.”

– Revelation 4: 1-5

 

Around the 3:25 mark, the 24 are seen at a table with Beyoncé at the head (throne). This is suggestive of the Banquet Table and/or The Last Supper of Jesus, when Beyoncé and the 24 (worshipers/disciples) lean in their chairs.  Interestingly enough, leaning in the chair is also found in the described verses of the Last Supper, as well as being the exact shape of the Virgo constellation, which is in the birthing position, reflective of Revelation 12.

“All the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures. They fell down on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, saying:  ‘Amen! Praise and glory and wisdom and thanks and honor and power and strength be to our God for ever and ever. Amen!’”

– Revelation 7: 11-12

 

Additional meaning and symbolism may be interpreted in the verses of the song “Love Drought” as it applies to God, Jesus and the falling away of mankind (again) and His Church during the 2,000 years following Jesus’ resurrection.

Notice the single yellow light in the background around the 6:28 mark and also seen near the very beginning of the performance, which is consistent with the “clothed in the sun” portion of Revelation 12.  It also symbolically reminds me of our sun and its description as well as its coming role/future (not in the New Jerusalem).

Additional meaning may be understood from the lyrics of “Sandcastles,” regarding a broken relationship and promises, pain, hurting and reconciliation, which is consistent with the story of our relationship with God and His forgiveness through His offering of Jesus, if we accept Him as our only chance to be saved from the lake of fire.

Beyoncé mentions a curse that “will be broken,” whereas Christians believe that curse is already broken through Jesus and will be felt in full completion and healing at God’s judgment of the earth and mankind, followed by His renewal and new creation.

Notice that out of the 24 “elders” in the performance, 6 are lying “dead” in the flowers around Beyoncé, 6 are sitting down behind her, and 12 are “dead/asleep” near the table.  At the end of the performance, all 24 rise up from their death/sleep, while Beyoncé references the number 1,000 (girls) and that reconciliation is completed in the hope of it being glorious.  Similarly Revelation concludes with God’s completion of judgment of mankind and the renewal for His people as it ushers in 1,000 years of peace and a sin-free New Jerusalem, with Satan bound for the same 1,000 years.  Glorious indeed!

“Indeed, fire will devour Your enemies.  Lord, You will establish peace for us, since You have also performed for us all our works.  O Lord our God, other masters besides You have ruled us; but through You alone we confess Your name. The dead will not live, the departed spirits will not rise; therefore You have punished and destroyed them, and You have wiped out all remembrance of them. You have increased the nation, O Lord, You have increased the nation, You are glorified; You have extended all the borders of the land.  O Lord, they sought You in distress; they could only whisper a prayer, your chastening was upon them.  As the pregnant woman approaches the time to give birth, she writhes and cries out in her labor pains, thus were we before You, O Lord.  We were pregnant, we writhed in labor; we gave birth, as it seems, only to wind.  We could not accomplish deliverance for the earth, nor were inhabitants of the world born.  Your dead will live; their corpses will rise.  You who lie in the dust, awake and shout for joy, for your dew is as the dew of the dawn, and the earth will give birth to the departed spirits.  Come, my people, enter into your rooms and close your doors behind you; Hide for a little while until indignation runs its course.  For behold, the Lord is about to come out from His place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity; and the earth will reveal her bloodshed and will no longer cover her slain.”

– Isaiah 26: 11-21

 

Again, please do NOT interpret the above comments as embracing Beyoncé’s performance as good Christian entertainment, because it’s NOT – it’s flawed with all sorts of anti-God and inaccurate sentiment as it relates to our Creator’s Word.  Rest assured it is certain not to win any Dove Awards for performance of the year.  Nonetheless, its images and symbolism are so striking in context to timing, stage/audience, occurrence and consistency with potential parallels as it relates to our out-of-control sinful world and other events pointing to the very real possibility of God’s impending judgment.

Also, please, if you are not reconciled to God through your acceptance of Jesus, do NOT delay one minute – ask Him to reveal Himself to you and change your heart.  Being “a good person” is insufficient, as none of us are good/worthy compared to God’s Law.  In fact, Paul tells us our deeds submitted to justify our salvation are viewed as filthy rags to God – we can never meet His standard unless we cling to Christ.  If you do not understand this and wish to know or ask questions, please contact me – do NOT wait.  God’s window of grace is closing quickly and attempting to survive the Tribulation is the worst imaginable experience “through the fire.”  The only thing worse is being tossed into the lake of fire for rejecting Jesus.

“And he sent out his slaves to call those who had been invited to the wedding feast, and they were unwilling to come.”

– Matthew 22:3

 

“The Lord, the God of their fathers, sent word to them again and again by His messengers, because He had compassion on His people and on His dwelling place; but they continually mocked the messengers of God, despised His words and scoffed at His prophets, until the wrath of the Lord arose against His people, until there was no remedy.”

– 2 Chronicles 36: 15-16

 

“Call to Me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.”

– Jeremiah 33:3
