We are not to become enthralled, entangled, and engrossed with the things of this world such as the recent blockbuster movie because it is a prelude of “art imitating life” of similar things to come.
The day is coming when the prophet Daniel foretold said: “And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up. And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practice, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people” (Daniel 8:23–24).
“And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand” (Daniel 8:25).
Jesus says: “For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before” (Matthew 24:24-25).
Just as untold numbers of people are rushing with fascination to see this most recent hit movie, this is a sign of when the seventh king rises to power over the seventh world kingdom, countless people are going to fall for the “…great signs and wonders…” and “…worship the beast..”.
The word of God reveals this fact as written by John saying: “And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, ‘Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?’” (Revelation 13:4).
“And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
If any man have an ear, let him hear” (Revelation 13:8-9).
