This week, audiences flocked to theaters around the world to discoverThe Hunger Games, adapted from the bestseller by American writer Suzanne Collins. Like Twilight or Harry Potter , the saga is fascinating and teenage fans stomped their feet impatiently.
Matthew 13: 24 Jesus proposed another parable, and said, The kingdom of heaven is like unto a man which sowed good seed in his field. 25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went away. 26 when the blade was sprung up and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. 27 So the servants of the householder came and said to him: Sir, did you not sow good seed in thy field? Whence then hath it tares? 28 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. And the servants said to him: Wilt thou that we go and gather them? 29 No, he says, lest in pulling the weeds, you root up the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together and until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the harvesters: First collect the weeds and bind them in bundles to burn, but gather the wheat into my barn.
36 Then he dismissed the crowd and entered the house. His disciples came to him, saying, Explain to us the parable of the tares of the field. 37 He replied: He who sows the good seed is the Son of man, 38 the field is the world, the good seed are the son of the kingdom, the tares are the son of the evil 39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil, the harvest is the end of the world and the reapers are the angels. 40 However, as hard and that the tares cast into the fire, it will be the same at the end of the world. 41 The Son of Man will send his angels, out of His kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity: 42 And shall cast them into the fiery furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 43 Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He that hath ears to hear.
The time of spiritual plowing is back. Like Jesus who by the power of his Spirit plowed consciences to save humanity by his words of life and by offering himself as a propitiation for his enemies and so that those who believe in Him may have eternal life, behold, Satan also works the land of our consciousness by activating all the power of his diabolical spirit associated with the most modern techniques. The plow blades are in the ground and plow tirelessly increasingly infertile and dry soil, encroaching, then extending their path further and further, even into the field of the Lord, turning the good seed over and burying it deep underground, to make from it the manure for its weeds.
No sooner the days of mourning have ended after the massacre of three Jewish children in Toulouse, the same images are back with even more violence and cruelty. After having upset and moved an entire nation, these senseless killings are already forgotten to make way for yet more horror and atrocity, but pushing the vice and sadism to its height, because children will be massacred by other children.
The context is even more incredible when one compares it with the reality of the latest news. "Dignity prevailed" the press rendered its verdict Wednesday after the decision of the Qatari Al-Jazeera not to air the video of the Toulouse murders, although many editorialists worry that these images will be found on the internet. "In certain circumstances, the right to silence must take precedence over the right to information. The latter does not allow any and everything", says Yves Thréard in Le Figaro. "No need to think very long time indeed to understand that showing these images is equivalent to being an active accomplice of the terrorist and its ideology of death," added Jacques Guyon in La Charente libre (free). Yet it is with great promotional display that the massacre of children is going to invade the screens in France. Welcome to hell, the field of Satan.
The New York Times published an article last Sunday about the marketing strategy that Lionsgate which invested $ 45 million to promote the film which costs 80 million to make. The report demonstrates how to transform a film launch into an event: if you repeat endlessly that it is a cult film, chances are that it becomes one. The studio has totally flooded the youth: 80 000 posters available, cover pages of 50 magazines, 3,000 ads on billboards and bus shelters. And a virulent digital campaign: constant use of Facebook and Twitter, a YouTube channel, a blog on Tumbler, games for iPhone. The premiere was broadcast live stream on Yahoo. One of the members of the marketing team´s mission was to feed information to the fan´s blogs . The targeted public is clearly teenagers that are invited to watch a movie whose images pass through the lens of the eyes of the heroin, which makes it easy for children who look to identify with her.
The biggest challenge for the Lionsgate´s studio was to sell a film about the death of two dozen teens who compete in a game " A rule It was made never to say" 23 children end up being killed "but rather "only one will survive." In the scenario, each year twelve districts send, a boy and a girl by drawing lots. A terrible way to keep the population alive by killing only 23 innocent children. This game is built on the same principle as the roman arenas in Caesar's time. The gladiators are replaced by teenagers and there must remain only one. Their survival depends not on themselves, but largely on the intention that people have toward them. A reality TV Live, where nothing is protected, all blows are allowed.
The Hunger Games is the name of the film and is adapted from the bestseller by Suzanne Collins. Collins is the Meyer of Twilight. After Harry Potter and soon the end of the saga Twilight coming in November, we had to immediately retrieve a franchise of literary success and project it onto the screen with still greater cruelty in the genre of blockbusters antichrists that transform wizards into saviors or vampires into nice teens. But do not be fooled, this is the inversion of the biblical values that is sought by the adversary. While the Bible explicitly forbids involvement with magic or to abstain from eating blood, these films provide a means of enter the consciousness of a whole generation by inculcating the values of the devil.e still greater cruelty in the genre of blockbusters antichrists that transform wizards into saviors or vampires into nice Somehow the mere fact of seeing the weeds grow and ripen is in itself a strong eschatological sign. Especially when the satanic marks are so obviously recognizable for those who are aware and awake as in the film Avatar:
Again we find the great symbols that Satan seeks to impose on man, as the Liongate´s studio does, the lion being the symbol of Ishtar and the gate in English, which means the Ishtar Gate. An archer and a heroine warrior like the goddess, who must kill the children of the 12 other tribes, it's not even worth bothering to comment ... As the adversary knows that there is no more opposition against him, he can from now on appear in such an aggressive and visible manner, since the fire of the Spirit has all but died in the Western churches.
Clearly, this kind of movie or television series of the same ilk is saying much more about the spiritual state of a nation than any speech. We can put this in the same barrel as the victory at Eurovision Lordy, or to present the pope at prime time news as the leader of Christendom or the children preachers of Pentecostal churches in South America. But one day one more drop will fall into the barrel of perdition and it will be the final drop ....
