War of the worlds, resident evil 3, 28 weeks later, I am legend, mutant chronicles, cloverfield and now hellboy part 2. What is it with makers of these movies that they kept on producing movies which depicts the end of the world?  Is it because they are letting us know that we are indeed near apocalypse or are they too excited on what is going to happen in the near future that’s why they keep on doing their own versions?

 

Some of these movies have clicked their way to box office hit on cinemas around the world and some have not but one thing in common is that they all have same format of story to foretell. A lot of people have been digging these kinds of movies not only because they want to watch their favorite star but also because they have been relentlessly seeking for answers as to what the future beholds. Versions of aliens attacking and destroying planet earth, one man standing on the face of the planet, wars, divisions, and a whole lot more kept coming on theatres.  

 

Not only on movies, they have invaded also the minds of our future leaders by using video games telling all kinds of fancy stories about our future. Ok I get it time will come and the end of days might happen but is that the really important thing we should focus on? I mean is this a preparation for every nation to prepare their people for combat in the near future that is why they keep on instilling on our minds these kind of situations? Scary isn’t it. Sometimes people are too busy that they don’t realize these things are coming silently like a thief in the night and we just let them invade us catching us unaware.

 

Unraveling the mysteries of the future is a hard thing to do and nobody can predict it according to what God has in store for it. What is important is that we focus on Him only. If we want answers then we have His Word to tell us so. And I quote from the book of Revelation,

 

Then he told me, “Do not seal up the words of prophecy of this book, because the time is near. Let him who does wrong continue to do wrong; let him who is vile continue to be vile; let him who does right continue to do right; and let him who is holy continue to be holy.” 

 

“Behold I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, and the Beginning and the End.”

 

“Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city. Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.”

 

Revelation 22:10-15

 

 

Truly the end is near and what is important is our relationship to God. Are we the one who will be with Him when the end has come or are we the dogs outside His kingdom? ask yourself. Only you and God knew the answer. It’s not yet too late and there is still chance if you still have a doubt.

  1. nice post po.. true nakakatakot nga talaga.. kasi ang Panginoon ay darating na parang magnanakaw ng di natin inaasahan. Basta bigla na lang.. hmmm tama nga po ang mahalaga talaga yun relationship natin kay God bantayan natin..

    ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

    tama at pag nataon ka ur still doing vile and wicked things then i guess its sorry for you. and i agree with you re our relationship with God.

  2. this is very timely. just last night my mother and i were browsing the website of jack van impe. my mother’s passion is to spread the gospel especially to those who have no idea what’s in store for all of us in the future. she and her friend are really into studying the bible prophecies. listening to them talk about those things makes me feel like i needed to hide at the nearest most possible safest place in the universe. it’s not too late yet for anyone to have a meaningful relationship with God. we have to act fast though because we don’t know when the judgement time will come.

    :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

    yes you are right found me. tribulation and apocalypse can be a long talk and ver scary but we shouldn’t be because its the day God will return so i think this is the thing we should be excited of.

  3. These films you mentioned are American-made. I have nothing against their work but I only noticed that they want to affect other nations with their own fears. Mandamay ba? I’d go for French, Chinese and Ballywood films na lang. Ok lang magbasa ng subtitles hehe:)

    ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

    hahaha. i do love chinese movies. one thing is because i have blood of chinese in me.hehehe.
    oo nga lahat ng amrican made movies mostly yan ang tema.

  4. nice post pare… i for one am not a fan of “end-of-the-world” themed movies… masyado nating ginagawang stressful buhay natin, yung iba after mapanood, nagiisip na kung what if ganun nga ang kahihinatnan ng mundo… sana magbago ang pananaw ng mga tao sa ganyan… nood na lang kamo sila ng drama or comedy… or love story.. kakilig! *kikay mode on*

    ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::;

    nakuha mo bakla! *night mode*
    kurutin kita sa singit jan eh. hahaha

    pero tama ka pressured ka na nga sa sarili mong problema minsan tapos magunwind ka at nood ng movie tapos ganun pa ang mapanood mo, eh di yari na! hehehe

  5. Pareho pala kayo ng husband kong Chinese descent din:) Actually I became a fan of Chinese movies because of him:) Ang ganda ng mga pinapanood sa akin and you can’t ignore the lessons taught in their movies. Meron at meron ka talaga mapupulot na maganda:)

    ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

    yups kaso ako i consider myself a quarter of chinese blood. hahahaha.
    well re naman sa chinese movies yes, they usually instill in their movies their culture kaya astig at maganda nga ung mga lessons na pinapakita nila. somehow i hope a lot of people see it that way and not just a bunch of action moves from the stars.

  6. ako nman fan ng mga ganyang type of movie but for entertainment purposes lang my friend. siguro kung may effect sakin ang ganyang movie e ung realization na sa totoong buhay ang saya-saya ko, na ang dami-dami kong dapat ipagpasalamat sa diyos. Of course am very aware sa sinasaad ng book of revelation, cant deny na still im in the process of refining myself, di ko pa rin maiwasan na di makagawa ng kasalanan sa diyos consciously or unconsciously but i never never forget to ask for forgiveness. someday gusto ko rin maging kagaya nyo na may confident sa pag-spread ng words ni lord and be ready for his final judgement.

    :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

    ok lang yan dhangski. basta wag lang tayo makakalimot kay Lord. hehehe.
    oo nga pala. welkam bak! hehe
