Stop Mixing Gods Word with Hollywoods lies!
Truth versus the Lie.
God’s word is light.
There are two ways of knowing the Bible, namely; the true unpolluted Word of God and the Hollywood way of half truths and lies.
Let’s begin with a well known story in the Bible where Israel stood before the red sea. If I ask you the question; “How was the water of the red sea parted?”
Most people would immediately answer that Moses hit the water with his staff or rod and the water rushed to the left and right to leave an open road through the red sea. A dry road waiting for God’s people, their wagons and livestock to pass through.
That is a lie from the heart of Hollywood!
Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the Lord caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea into dry land, and the waters were divided. So the children of Israel went into the midst of the sea on the dry ground, and the waters were a wall to them on their right hand and on their left. (Exodus 14)
Meaning of the word Hollywood!
Well let’s look what the word “Hollywood” means and where it originated?
Hollywood is from the Holly tree.
This is the same wood that witches or wicked magicians use in their occultic practice to cast spells when they work their magic. Used in the form of a wooden stick or wand taken from the Holly tree, an ancient satanic tool to put spells on people.
This is the way Hollywood work magic on the nations of the world by taken captive there thoughts and by mass hypnosis.
So how is it then that I say that we are under the spell of Hollywood when we are looking at Biblical stories? How can I say that what we generally believe about the parting of the Red Sea is a lie?
Yes’, the water did part, but not in the way we have been taught by Hollywood.
Many people are too lazy to read their Bibles on their own and even worse, are trusting and believing everything said from the pulpit.
Preachers from the pulpit are also under the spell of Hollywood and don’t even know that they are preaching lies. I have heard so many times that they say “and Moses hit the water with his rod and - whoosh - the water flew in all directions forming a wall of water on both sides almost immediately.
We marveled and we are all hanging onto his lips because of the power and might of God showing us His Strength.
Let’s view the story that I am referring to.
Exodus 14:16 “for the Lord said unto Moses, lift up your rod, and stretch out your hand over the sea”. In verse 21 we read “and then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and the Lord caused the sea to go back by a strong East wind all night, and made the sea dry land and the water were divided.”
Why do we remember the water being hit? and is it so significant if it was hit or not?
Well God is a God of detail, if you go to where Moses was instructed to build the temple, every minute detail was given, and it all shows towards the perfect Christ to come.
Yes this story shows us that Hollywood wanted to sell movies, entertainment, ect and in doing so also bring half truths or lies about God and Who He is.
The problem is that we have believed these stories while it is not the truth. If we believe this, what about things that could land you in Hell?
The Bible story not half as exciting as the story that Hollywood proclaims as when a wind from the East is blowing throughout the night. Well the sea did not part for hours. This is not really action movie material, so they jazzed up the story a bit to make it more dramatically.
Now we come to the more important part:
If we could be so easily deceived by Hollywood, what else has the enemy used to blind and bind the Church from the truth?
We are living in the New Testament era, and we are now under the dispensation of Grace. We read this in Romans 8:1-2 say: There is therefore now - no condemnation - to them that are in Yeshua (Christ Jesus).
For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus made me free from the law of sin and of death.
Do we still have to keep the law?
Most assuredly, Definitely - Yes ! We have a new law: Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. Matthew 22:37 - 40 and love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and Prophets hang on these two commandments.
We are redeemed from the curse of the law and not of the law itself but Yeshua now under Grace give us the power to keep the law and if we slip, he forgives. He was the only man ever to keep all the law and was blameless in it, perfect Lamb.
Do you believe that Hollywood Is a tool for taking the nations of the world captive by hypnotism.
So what do we learn from this?
This Generation want an immediate action and to see Gods works with miraculous power coming into being. Everything must be now and fast. We want to tell God how it must be done. We feel that He must do things through our lives immediately and if he does not, we stop believing, so Hollywood way seems the best way.
This is exactly what Hollywood wants, they want to show you through the Roman Catholic influences that God must act immediately if we demand anything through prayer.
But if we seek the truth we see that God's Word say - Zechariah 4:6 “Not through might, nor by power but through my Spirit” says the Lord and that God’s ways are not our ways, meaning it will happen on God's way and His time, not ours.
It has been proven that the human brain remembers images better than words. Yeshua (Jesus) preaches through parables so that we can relate to the lesson by pictures and remember it easier.
So with this knowledge, the question arise: What else have they lied to us about?
How much of what we have learned through Hollywood's Biblical movies is not a true reflection of the Bible? Well, all hollywood movies about the Bible is Produced by the Enemy, the Devil so you be the Judge. Everything from the Bible that Hollywood takes to make a story from is only to entertain you with lies.
This is where I want to encourage you, go read your Bible on your own and when you hear a preach or teaching, see a movie about the Bible, see if the scripture is the same as that which you have heard from the pulpit or seen in the movie.
Let's take a well known example and do some exploring - the birth of Christ, (The Hollywood stories of Christmas)
Questions we can ask is, was there only three wise men and was there only three gifts and was Yeshua (Jesus) a newborn baby when they visited him in the House.
Did they put newborn's life in danger by fleeing into the desert to Egypt?
Look at how old the children were that Herod had killed.
At the time the wise men saw the birth of Yeshua (Jesus), was there snow?
Was He born in the summer or winter?
Are we going to believe the Hollywood story or the true of the Word.
Go make a study in the Bible by reading Matthew 2 from verse 1-15
Let us look at movies that is a lies from Hollywood.
