Everything happens for a reason. That reason causes change. Sometimes it hurts. Sometimes it is hard. In the end though, it is all for the best. Never stop trusting God and believing in His plan.
When we feel alone in our relationship with Jesus Christ, when we feel abandon by friends, acquintances, the people we work with – take solace in this: we are not alone. Jesus Christ walks with us now, today! He walks with us onward into eternity.
Your past does not determine your future. It is God’s presence that determines your success.
I do not put my faith in the one who sits in the white house – I put my faith in the one who sits on the throne.
The Justice League is a great movie of action and use of talent. There is to much there, to many things going on for the plot to be revealed. I would like to share with you the last scene of the movie and what took place and I know that I will not be giving away the plot.
There is a contrast in this movie between the dark of night and the light of day. The movie opens with a scene that takes place at night. None the less, it is a the cops responding to a crime. One of the crime stoppers all dressed in black and looking like a bat shows up to save the night. There is another scene of a crime taking place in the day. What these two scenes demonstrate is that evil is all around us and can strike when the sun is up or when the sun is down. Most of the action scenes between the good guys and the bad guys take place in the dark – that is, in a cave. The villians are made to look mean and evil as monsters dressed in black and with faces that strike fear into the heart. There is the contrast between light and dark, good and evil, love and sin. It reminds you of the force in Star Wars, how it is used for good or evil and then the dark side.
One of the characters makes a comment about how they had been dead and then being raised from the dead. There is only one person in history that changed the course of humanity by being raised from the dead and we all know who that was – Jesus Christ. One has to be careful watching this movie as it takes a poke at Christianity.
At the end of the movie, Lois Lane sits down to write an article for the newspaper and she says this for an opener. “True darkness is not just the absence of light but it is the conviction that it will never be again.” Think about that for a moment – the conviction that what once was shall never be again. This is the darkness that is found in the world today. It squeezes out every bit of life and suffocates everything around it that is good. This allows evil to exist making everything under the sun permissible.
Christians know this to be different. True darkness was the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and hanging there on that cross. It was the anguish of God the Father having to sacrifice His one and only Son. It was His Son for the forgiveness of sin and the redemption of man. True light is Jesus Christ and that light came into focus with the resurrection of God’s one and only Son. It is the reflection of God’s glory thru His Son.
I would have loved to see the joy in heaven when Jesus was raised from the dead. As a matter of fact, you could hear the joy when that momentous event took place. Christians have this hope that they will one day see this light. Satan was defeated once and will be defeated again.
