"Heaven Is for Real" is the TRUE story of the four-year old son of a small town Nebraska pastor who during emergency surgery slips from consciousness and enters heaven. He survives and begins talking about being able to look down and see the doctor operating and his dad praying in the waiting room. The family didn't know what to believe but soon the evidence was clear. Colton said he met his miscarried sister, whom no one had told him about, and his great grandfather who died 30 years before Colton was born, then shared impossible-to-know details about each. He describes the horse that only Jesus could ride, about how "reaaally big" God and his chair are, and how the Holy Spirit "shoots down power" from heaven to help us. Told by the father, but often in Colton's own words, the disarmingly simple message is heaven is a real place, Jesus really loves children, and be ready, there is a coming last battle.

The Green Lantern movie is a story about a core team of men who fight the GOOD fight against EVIL. The Super Heroes are a force of intergalactic police. Only the greatest men/creatures are chosen to be a part of the team gathered for God's high purpose. They fight for goodness everywhere. Each member wears a ring that is powered by “green.” The green His Light represents our human God given FREE WILL. The GREEN power of the Holy Spirit flows into their will to fight for good. This HEROIC team receives God's power to fight against evil. Their motto:

In brightest day
In blackest night
No evil shall escape my sight
Let those who worship evil’s might
Beware my power
Green Lantern’s might

God created man in His powerful likeness. From a tiny seed this picture shares the fruit that grew in a few months of Son worship! GREEN cucumbers to balance my alkaline and give me time to pause and praise GOD! "BEHOLD the lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world." The world was changed by the HEROIC force of John the Baptist. As an unsolicited movie critic, I proclaim that this movie calls us to be filled with the Spirit. That we BEHOLD our GOD in all creativity. That we share a glimpse of His beauty! Consider the call in PSALM 27:
"The LORD is my light and my salvation—
whom shall I fear?
The LORD is the stronghold of my life—
of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked advance against me to devour me,
it is my enemies and my foes
who will stumble and fall.
Though an army besiege me,
my heart will not fear;
though war break out against me,
even then I will be confident.
One thing I ask from the LORD,
this only do I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the LORD
all the days of my life,
to gaze on the beauty of the LORD
and to seek Him in His temple.
For in the day of trouble
He will keep me safe in His dwelling;
He will hide me in the shelter of His sacred tent
and set me high upon a rock."

"Be stilled and know that I am God" Be still and with silent reverence of a Son rising or a sunset, may the majestic colors aflame cause you to glorify God in all creation.

Close to Jesus

"Close to Jesus: Mary Magdalene" is available on Netflix. YOUTUBE does not allow embedding: COPY:

Mary meets John the Baptist and was simply asked "What do you want?" Mary responds "to be loved." John encourages her to seek God, not man for her needs. "BEHOLD the LAMB of GOD" John received the Holy Spirit while in his mother's womb. When his pregnant mother greeted the pregnant mother of Jesus, the unborn John leaped in recognition of his only love. John loved no other as he loved the Messiah. Isaiah spoke of John's calling and purpose. John was absolutely fulfilled by his solitary love of God. LOVE is not just shared between man and woman. God so loved the world...which includes single men, women and children. People who never marry are filled with the Spirit of His love and are satisfied in every way. The unconditional love of a parent for a child is more like the love of God than the lust between man and woman.

He cries in the corner where nobody sees, he is the kid with the story that no one would believe. He prays every night, dear God won't You please, could You send someone to love me ~ who will love me for me ~ not for what I have done, or what I could become ~ who will love me for me, cause nobody has shown me what love really means. Her office is shrinking a little each day ~ she's the woman whose husband has run away ~ she'll go to the gym after working the day ~ maybe if she was thinner, then he would have stayed ~ He is waiting to die as he sits all alone, he's a man in a cell who regrets what he has done ~ he utters a cry from the depths of his soul 'oh Lord, forgive me I want to go home.' Then he heard a voice, somewhere deep inside ~ and it said 'I know you murdered, I know you've lied, and I've watched you suffer all of your life ~ but now that you're listening I tell you that I will LOVE you for you ~ NOT for what you have done or what you've become ~ I will love you for you and be the LOVER you never knew of. I will love you for eternity!

So long politics
Its time to start being me
Take the chains off and
Its time to set my tongue free
Some just turn their heads but
Some will raise a fist
And You told me to stand
So I wont back down from this
They say there are no absolutes
But are they absolutely sure
In a world that trys to water You down
Where the leaves cannot be spoken to loud
I'll stand for truth
Where the cleaner way is'nt wide enough
When they do their best
Just to cover You up
I'll stand for You
Hello Reality its time
We embraced honesty
Teach me to speak the truth
In love and with humility
You made a promise that
You will come back to earth
So how selfish am I
IF I don't go tell the world
They say just be sincere
But could they all be sincerely wrong
In a world that trys to water You down
Where the leaves cannot be spoken to loud
I'll stand for truth
Where the cleaner way is'nt wide enough
When they do their best
Just to cover You up
I'll stand for You

March 11, 2011 is a day to take a sister, a mom, a kid, a teen to tea, and then to see Jane Eyre. This courage filled young Jane is a mistreated orphan who is taught to memorize scripture at an early age. She learned to submit to authority and respectfully she held her tongue as she waited for a response to an ad she placed for employment. Jane speaks the truth as she knows it and she is led to fearlessly act ~ When faced with injustices, she was quick to show kindness. Ultimately because of her instilled values, Jane Eyre becomes the heroine. She gains personal freedom and the guy of her dreams, not by manipulation, but because she is valued for her morality. The appeal to this plot is far reaching as we all have suffered rejections and disappointments. This classic also has a mystery which draws upon our emotions and our intellect. Jane is a GREAT role model for young girls in 2011. The story is modern and universal. If you take away the costumes and the setting, at the core of it is a story of a young girl who is trying to find love, a place to call home, somewhere to belong, and connect in a very dislocated world. As a society we are discontent, and many ache to know that they are valued and loved ~ that REALITY remains transcendent as it reaches the soul of the lost. Today we live in a hostile world with war and economic doom, and the orphans of our society are the children who grow up with both parents working, and consequently unavailable. Consider how youth deal with the gray days of being alone or homeless? Without college ~ hopes turn bleak in 2011 for many who are forced to drop out to get jobs and support the family. Jane Eyre drops out of the role of an orphan and adopts the responsibility of a teacher for one young spoiled child. Teens today need strong models of courage and tenacity. "If Jane can do it, so can I!" Such response ability is a reason for youth to rise and do well! Jane thrived within a cold, socially limited environment and she made the best of it without complaint. Void of mature advice from anyone, she relied on her faith in God, and never really felt alone. Jane was 18-years-young living in a world with a social circle of two. An 8-year-old girl and Mrs. Fairfax, the housekeeper. Today our teens have several perhaps too many social opportunities and they miss out on time alone with God. I'm just saying....that perhaps ~ TV, Facebook, gaming, text messaging, and more demand movies than books is what keeps us from feeling the confidence of the Holy Spirit. Jane's home was a cold and desolate castle that could not console or offer the comfort of a friendly embrace. ONE LESSON: Maybe it is not always WISE to have more than we need. To learn that stuff cannot satisfy the soul's longing for relationship. Tis a huge lesson for this ME generation. The audience anticipates the moment that Jane embraces the truth of being worthy of love. We can each relate to the FEAR Jane has over noises in the dark, the FEAR of the unknown, the FEAR of being alone, and the FEAR of feeling LOVE. The unseen, unknown, and inaudible voice in her heart seems to have given Jane a clarity that we lack today. Without distraction, Jane is enabled to emotionally adapt to her creepy environment. Her heart yearns to be loved, BUT does Mr Rochester love her, could he possibly love someone as uneducated as Jane? The innocence of such thinking, her vulnerability in the matter of undeserved love is something that we all have felt. A GREAT book and an excellent teaching tool for a nite at home with a teen.
