And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath He quickened together with Him, HAVING FORGIVEN YOU ALL TRESPASSES; Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to His Cross; And having spoiled principalities and powers, HE MADE A SHEW OF THEM OPENLY, TRIUMPHING OVER THEM in it. Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days : WHICH ARE A SHADOW OF THINGS TO COME; but the body is of Christ. Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind, Colossians 2:13-18. Many people love to watch disaster movies where the girl is in trouble, everything is against her, and yet, somehow, the guy finds her, saves her, and they live a happy life in spite of the death and destruction going on around them. This worldly storyline IS BUT A SHADOW OF THINGS TO COME. How so? I think we can all agree that at the least there is eventually coming 3 and a half years of tribulation, followed by 3 and a half years of Great Tribulation. A time of such great death and destruction neither man nor Hollywood can fully grasp the Severity of it all. And then comes The End of all things. Somewhere between here and there, CHRIST IS COMING BACK FOR HIS BRIDE, Who has made Herself Ready for the Marriage Supper Of The Lamb. In this scenario the "guy" DOES save "the girl" and they live happily EVER AFTER. Hollywood has no concept of the Keeping Power of Christ during this time of great death and destruction. The Hollywood version is but a shadow of Christ and His Bride  COMING THROUGH VICTORIOUSLY, in spite of all that the world throws down against them. Forget Hollywood, be a part of the REAL Victorious Team that DOES live happily ever after. LIVE IN CHRIST, and FOREVER, Be Blessed.
