MOVIE FROM HELL

THE MOVIE FROM HELL!

Merry Monday by Parris Bailey-

I think all of us were shocked and grieved to hear about the shootings in Colorado at a movie theater this past week. I listened to the many accounts of the victims that were in that theater. The latest interview was of some Baton Rouge girls that “just happened” to be doing a cross country road trip and of all places decided to catch a movie in Colorado. She tells the story about how she was hiding under the seat when she felt what seemed like a 2 by 4 hit her leg. She had been shot, and while lying in the hospital she begin to praise God and express her thankfulness that she was alive to tell her story for His Glory. Wow! The scripture in Hebrews 11:26 come to mind concerning her story: “Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompense of the reward.” This word respect in Greek means aphoran which means to turn the eyes away from other things and fix them on some one thing; to look at attentively; to look with steadfast mental gaze.The word also means “to turn one’s mind to a certain thing.” She had seen “the invisible”, she turned her gaze from the horror and fixed her eyes on Jesus who became the author (aphor) and finisher of her faith. Would you have been able to do this?
Tozer in his book the “Pursuit of God” says; “When the habit of inwardly gazing Godward becomes fixed within us we shall be ushered onto a new level of spiritual life more in keeping with the promises of God and the mood of the New Testament. The Triune God will be our dwelling place even while our feet walk the low road of simple duty here among men. We will have found life’s summum bonum (higher good) indeed.”
“Outer court worshippers little know what belongs to the inner sanctuary, or surely they would press on until the place of nearness and divine familiarity became real to them.
“He wishes us to know him, and by his Word and by his Spirit he puts himself before us. Ah! it is not his fault if we do not know him. It is our own carelessness.” (Mary B. M. Duncan, in “Under the Shadow”)
We all should by now realize that we live in a time that the unspeakable can happen. We need to keep our eyes on Jesus with a steadfast gaze. He will bring us to the desired haven in due time all for His glory and His good. I don’t want to live in the outer courts were I will be tossed about with every emotion and circumstance. Most of us need to use our God given eyes to lay hold on His eyes and let Him move us into a place that we will never see this earth again. Even so come Lord Jesus!

  1. Amen and Amen, Praise His Holy Name, once He changes your inflow with His words , actions, walk, talk the outside just walks with Him like He did on this earth. Thank you Holy Spirit. Everywhere I walk now is focused on Him, talking with Him, praising Him all day long. He’s so Amazing. My inward being is changed for Him. It’s amazing how He takes nasty parts out of you and replaces them with the beauty of Himself. I remember driving my Suburban and going to the store to get something and as I was driving I pulled in and I cut across the lines in the parking lot where the cars park instead of following the lanes and arrows to go up and down to find a parking spot. He said to me,What are you doing. I said what, He said we do things the right way we don’t cut across the lines in the parking lot. I told Him Sorry, I want do it again. It’s amazing how He changes all the wrongs you use to do into Goodness. I Love Him. Have an awesome day and Blessings to you and My Pastor Frank.

  2. O be careful little eyes what you see O be careful little eyes what you see There’s a Father up above And He’s looking down in love So, be careful little eyes what you see

    My mom use to sing this song to me;O be careful little ears what you hear O be careful little ears what you hear There’s a Father up above And He’s looking down in love So, be careful little ears what you hear

    O be careful little hands what you do O be careful little hands what you do There’s a Father up above And He’s looking down in love So, be careful little hands what you do

    O be careful little feet where you go O be careful little feet where you go There’s a Father up above And He’s looking down in love So, be careful little feet where you go

    O be careful little mouth what you say O be careful little mouth what you say There’s a Father up above And He’s looking down in love So, be careful little mouth what you say. It seems we are what we watch and hear, for the shooter he was probably playing a video game so to say. Walked in a room turned the corner and started shooting, then when people popped up he picked them off. It’s sad to see things like this but the worlds jest getting worst. He’s not insane , being bony trapped his whole house, I would say he’s pretty inteligent. It’s hard to not throw a rock at someone like this but all in all he’s still a lost soul needing christ. Look at the apostle Paul. It’s seems were just enduring to the end in these days.

  3. We are living in a time were evil is ramped, more so as we go than any other time that I can remember in my lifetime, It is all around us but so is the Lord and I know this no matter what He will prevail, The enemy may and has come in like a flood but the Lord has set up a standard against it, evil wont always win, it wins alot but it dont always. Im so glad the time is coming were it will be put down for eternity, I pray we all dont lose sight of this, It is very evil out in the world im so glad we dont belong to the world or its systems anymore.
