God Is NOT DEAD….Now That’s One Worth Seeing!!!!!

What would you do if you were faced with the following dilemma:  In order to insure a 30% raise, or to increase your potential for landing the career promotion of your dream just say publicly “God Is Dead”.  What would you do if you were promised by the most desired (finest, cutest) bachelor or bachelorette in the entire world that not only will they go out with you, but they would love to marry you after you say publicly “God Is Dead”.  Finally, what would you do if you were promised perfect health, endless access to all the money you will ever need in your entire lifetime and that of your children’s children if you simply say publicly “God Is Dead”.  Once again I just returned from watching another movie.  The movie I saw today was God Is NOT Dead.  A freshman college student choose to stand in the Power of God’s might against an atheist professor who assured a class of 80 students a 30% grade advantage if the would simply write on a sheet of paper three words and sign their name and then turn the paper in to him.  The three words were, “God Is Dead”.  Any person refusing to follow the professor’s directive would likely fail the class.  One student who held faith in God as a Christian refused to sign his faith away and was under threat of failure in class, his girlfriend of six years left him.  Another young lady who was Muslim was caught by her family listening to the Bible on her cell phone and was beaten and thrown out of her families home.

The only thing that made the above individuals different from their peers was their internal understanding of the power inside them through the power of God through Christ.  The difference the individuals made by being examples of power ultimately lead a movement inside many others to unleash the power that was already inside them.  The movie did an excellent job conveying an attitude that power is activated by each persons faith.  The movie did an excellent job conveying the message that once power is understood and embraced, indeed one is capable of doing all things through Christ who keeps powering them.  There are many other scenes in this movie where individuals were being robbed by the bank robber of their soul.  The bank robber is always the devil and he was dressed to the nines in deceptive clothing of education, corporate power, importance in the eyes of people.  For two hours the theater was captivated by watching the power of God work through people operating in their purpose calling doing battle against character after character operating outside their God given potential attempting over and over again to discourage individuals by making withdrawals after withdrawals into their soul.  The ending of the movie was so uplifting.  When a person walks in the power of God’s might they not only are growing closer to God personally but also may be the example of power to others causing them to allow God to power their life.  This is not just a feel good movie but rather a movie that challenges individuals to unleash their best work every day even as stated by Todd Henry author of Accidental Creative and Die Empty.  This movie was almost like watching onscreen today’s sermon about The Baptism of Jesus in Matthew 3:13 – 17.  Jesus understood his purpose and would not allow anyone to talk him into a shortcut or bypassing the path to purpose.  Are you living life before the world in a manner that cry out God Is Not Dead?  In your work world do you conduct yourself in a manner that cry out God Is Not Dead?  In your dedication to prayer, worship, study of God’s Word do you model a message to those you are in touch with that God Is Not Dead?  When was the last time you invited a person to come and worship with you in order for them to experience assembling with others who serve The Living God who is Good All The Time and All The Time He Is Good.  Invite three people to come with you this Sunday to experience The God Who Is Not Dead….that is unless you have signed the piece of paper and passed it in that has made a statement to those in your circle that your God is not able. 

1.  You show God is not able by never talking about how he has delivered you

2.  You show God is not able by not encouraging other to try him for themselves

3.  You show God is not able by not making Him a priority in your own personal life

This movie is a must see. Why?  Because God Is Not Dead.

  1. You’re becoming a movie critic. But I love it will check it didn’t know that movie was out. The funny thing we got more publicity on Noah and the only thing biblical about Noah was the name.
