Noah and the Great Flood: A Reminder about Man’s Redemption and God’s Mercy

The Christian movie Noah released in 2014 tells us about the wicked ways of men during the period of Noah’s life. Although they took the plot on some events described in Genesis in The Bible, the presentation contained more cinematic effects intended to please the audience.

The main idea of this film is to show that the Creator has made a world that is good and that men through free will have chosen to corrupt it. To serve justice and destroy the world and its inhabitants.

The young Noah saw his father’s death in the hands of a Tubal-Cain. From that scene, we get to feel his numbing pain that he brought to his adult life. Noah lived with his wife and three sons as far away from the Tubal-Cain as possible. It’s not because he was afraid of them but because he knew he would fight for their survival. Like Noah, strong-willed people keep their distance from adversaries but can and will fight back when the situation calls for it.

In a dream, Noah saw the great flood. He sought guidance from his grandfather Methuselah who confirmed God chose him for a reason. We can relate to this scene when we face life-changing problems. We sometimes see ourselves caught in between reasoning and emotions that it takes a wise person in our lives to give us words of encouragement so we can get things done.

The existence and description of The Watchers are not from an account in The Bible. However, one compelling scene was when one of them said, “We begged the Creator to take us home, but He was silent.” The Watchers acknowledged where they came from and would return to the Creator. The silence mentioned here may mean moments in our lives when we beg to Him to take away our pain. He may have been distant at times.  His silence may teach us patience to wait for a clearer perspective, a firm decision or another chance to change our course in life.

Ila’s character, Tubal-Cain’s group attacking the Ark and Noah’s son Ham conspiring with Tubal-Cain in trying to kill Noah in the Ark may have been fictional scenes to create more drama to the plot. However, we can relate to Ila’s fears when Noah was about to kill her twins. We feel Tubal-Cain’s wrath and Ham’s disobedience to Noah. Their characters represent who we choose to follow. They have shown possible consequences derived from their actions.

In conclusion, the Christian films Noah was a creative interpretation of some of the scriptural account. The context was about the Creator’s mercy. Men’s wicked ways pained Him, and by the great flood, humanity’s redemption happened.

In this generation, we get to fail Him multiple times. But His mercy remains the same. We now have the opportunity to repent, be saved from our sins and live a purposeful life.

Peace of Mind Can Be Found in Christ Alone

Peace of mind

If you need peace of mind. Here’s a promise from God:

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:6-7)

How many times have you felt “under the weather”? Was there a moment when you just mumbled and sighed at the thought of waking up on a bright sunny Monday morning, thinking about your purpose and all? What about those times when you really felt down, not able to move a limb, so sluggish that everything is a burden?

What about those times when you regret what you’ve said to your significant other (because you simply felt unappreciated and unloved)? Or maybe you’ve wondered why your boss was seemingly cold, never seeing you for the great employee you are? What about that time when you’re petty troubles won’t leave you, like the shadow that seems to be your twin?

I recall one time when I felt the same way. Feeling that I was in the dumps. I kept on worrying about my finances, my relationships, my job, and more. Thinking that I would give up. I felt like no one loves me and the world was just so heavy and I did not have any other reason to smile.

I prayed to God, “Lord, if you are really a God of abundance, please bless my family with riches enough for us to pay all our debts. Believing that He is there listening to our pleas. Please heed our call. Lord, you are the God of love. I believe you will turn my relationships around. Lord, please embrace me with your love and never leave me. I have no one to turn to but You.”

Days passed and I kept on waiting for God’s response. Still, our financial burdens were afloat. My partner then came colder until I decided to call it quits. I thought, maybe God was busy and does not have time to hear me. I must not be deserving of all the blessings in the world there are.

Not long after, an instrument of God came. I came to my senses. The morning came when I felt so excited to go to work again, to mingle with people who share the same values, and to even continue my planned business.

God woke me up from my slumber. That was the first time (again, after weeks of deep gloom) that I felt lighter than ever. I felt like there was no pressure, no negative force shrouding my senses. God must have been in control this time!

I then remembered God is a God of possibilities. He promised us blessings upon blessings. Just as He never left His Son Jesus when He was in the desert, so will He not leave us during times of trouble.

God is a God of wonders. He can provide the peace of mind that you need. His promise never falters. He has great plans for each of us. Despite our trials, He still keeps His promise of salvation. He does not falter. He will not fail us.

In His Steps: A Commitment to Follow Christ

In His Steps

In His Steps: A Commitment to Follow Christ

This 2013 Christian film In His Steps has a simple plot. What is not so simple is the impression that the film leaves on the viewers. It tells a story about the different personalities of people who go to the same church and listen to the same sermon every Sunday.

The church practice may have been the same but the difference is the impact His words bring to life those who took preaching to their hearts. Thus, the theme of this film is applying the words and teachings of Jesus into our daily lives.

Jack is a homeless man who came to the town of Raymond seeking a possible way of living and not alms. He went out to seek for help but he was turned down and pushed away. His life ended abruptly after questioning the churchgoers about what Jesus would do.

Jack’s situation tells us that we seek hope and refuge among the people around us. When disappointment and loneliness hit its rock bottom, it cuts the cord of life in our being. Death from within is far more painful than physical hurt. Hope that is lost is synonymous to losing the meaning of existence.

Following Jack’s death, Pastor Henry decided to challenge the congregation to follow in the steps of Jesus before taking any action or decision in their lives. Guilt was the driving force of this act. We can relate to that. Guilt from mistakes we have made pushes us to self-commit into doing something that may absolve us from it.

This Christian Film has given the audience a reflection of what it is like to be torn between circumstances and standing up for faith. The characters demonstrate why and how each of them shall embody the standards of Jesus after pledging their commitment.

Rachel turned down a singing contract offer and was bashed online. Alex adjusted quotation rates in his business to a more fair range to his co-worker’s dismay. He was also firm in disciplining his daughter Celia who goes home late due to peer pressure. Virginia volunteered to help in a feeding program at the Rectangle where she met Loreen who ran away from her abusive boyfriend. Scared and pregnant, Virginia took her home in spite of her grandmother’s protests. Jasper’s cowardice led to Loreen being taken with force by her boyfriend and in a heated argument. Loreen’s life ended when she fell off the stairs after being hit.

These scenes tell us that there will always be people who will contradict us and be displeased in what we do no matter how good our intentions are. Decisions we make in life may lead to varying outcomes, sometimes for the better and at other times, the result may oppose what we wanted but we derive lessons from them. Following the principles of Christianity is a life-long journey and our guide is His Steps.

Mary of Nazareth Movie Review

Mary of Nazareth

Mary of Nazareth: A Story of a Mother’s Love, Devotion and Sorrow

The Christian movie Mary of Nazareth revolves around how Mary was as a child, a wife, and a mother.

Mary of Nazareth led a difficult life before, during and after the life of Jesus Christ. She accepted the worldly humiliation for the sake of becoming his mother. Mary endured being subject to gossip and stares during her early period of conception.  She also faced embarrassment during her wedding day. Mary taught us in these scenes to trust God’s will then react to the scrutiny of others who knew so little about what goes on in her life. The lessons imparted to us in these scenes include selecting moments, circumstances and people that mattered to us. Every stage in our lives is a passing phase, and all that will remain are the ones we gave importance.

Aside from Mary’s life’s course dedicated in service to God, we were also presented with the characters of Mary Magdalene and Herodias, daughter of Herod. Magdalene seeks self-worth validation through debauchery and lust. On the other hand, Herodias was a cold-hearted vindictive woman who goes after the head of John the Baptist. The movie has shown us the difference between the three women’s qualities and how their decisions have affected the lives they led. Magdalene was vulnerable to worldly temptation as much as some of us follow the acceptable norms of the society we belong. A compelling scene was when Christ hindered people from stoning Magdalene, and that changed her way of living moving forward. This scene means that every sinner can repent and be forgiven and can change for the better.

Another pivotal character is Joseph who sheltered Mary from all semblance of scandal by marrying her. This way, Mary was able to keep her immaculate purity and the holiness of her son. The movie showed how Joseph loved Mary before, during and after giving birth to Jesus. For Joseph, marriage means saving the reputation of the woman he loved. He is out to defend his chosen spouse regardless of being a virgin or otherwise, and that is the measure of true love. Until his dying moment, Joseph was able to acknowledge how special Mary was to him as his wife and mother to Jesus Christ.

Mary embodied a loving, protective mother who always looks after her son from childhood to adulthood. She goes out of her way to see to it that no physical harm shall befall him. Imagine how painful it is. She witnessed her son beaten, made to carry a cross and nailed to it. Mary knew that Jesus Christ needed to do God’s bidding. She mustered an enormous amount of courage to stand by the cross and bring his body to the tomb. No greater love can surpass that of a mother as Mary of Nazareth. Her story was and will be the greatest mother’s story ever told.

One Night with the King

One Night with the King

One Night with the King: A Tale of a Queen’s Love and Courage

Released in 2006, the Christian film “One Night with the King” was based on the biblical story of how a Jewish orphan named Hadassah became Queen Esther to King Xerxes of Persia. It tells about Esther’s character that made her become Queen. She is literate that is uncommon for a woman in those days. And boldly expresses her thoughts and opinions to any man who speaks to her regardless of rank even to the King. By demonstrating how to make good use of God-given abilities to serve others. Her act of reading to the other maidens vying for Queen means she cared more about them learning from her than using her knowledge for her own advancement.

The story revolved around the period where avenging persecution of the forefathers was highly regarded. The main antagonist Haman has set himself to lead killing all Jews to avenge his forefathers Agag. It is no different to what goes on in Syria at present time. For as long as there’s no repentance and remission, we know not how racial war ends. In spite of the repercussions of killing, we still hope for God’s protection towards His chosen people.

Queen Vashti’s character showed us that she stood her ground opposing the war. She refused to bid the King’s summon stating that she will not lower her dignity to his drunken men. Due to the King’s pride being defied by his Queen, he banished her and announced to find a replacement. On the other hand, Esther used to love to link her to the King.

She became Queen because she treated love as a treasure beyond jewels. When Haman was about to lead annihilation of the Jews. Queen Esther defied protocol by presenting herself before the council chamber unsummoned. Unlike Queen Vashti who got banished from the kingdom.

On this movie, we see that the King’s love weighed more than rules. He lowered his scepter for Queen Esther. In this plot, we also see Queen Esther’s courage to face adversaries in spite of knowing that a possible punishment awaits her.

Mordecai is another character that influenced the turn of events. Being one of the King’s scribes at the palace and acting as uncle to Esther. Mordecai guided her to protect her identity so the Jews could be saved. He did not kneel before Haman and boldly declared that he bows down only to the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and before their King. Its message to us is to firmly defend the God we believe in no matter the situation we are in.

In conclusion, the film was able to effectively convey that greed is foolishness, love and trust are a treasure, peace is far superior to recklessly avenge past wrongdoings, and that there is hope for God’s people.
