New Years Eve we were all celebrating the promise of the year ahead as we ushered in 2020. By mid January, we were wanting 2019 back. Truth is, all we’ve gone through the past nine months has probably had us all thinking a bit more about Bible prophecy and what today’s events might mean. That’s why the film Before the Wrath is very timely. Narrated by Kevin Sorbo (Hercules/God’s Not Dead), this film is intertwined with a historical look at Jesus’ day, Bible passages and expert opinion of how interpreting end times lies in the culture surrounding the Gospels.

I’m not one to sit down and watch an armageddon-type movie unless it stars Bruce Willis or Will Smith. The title of this movie wasn’t winning me over either. And honestly, the film was far different from what I was expecting. I was pleasantly surprised as it unveiled a beautiful metaphor of end time prophecy and the return of Jesus.
Enter the Galilean-style wedding. This documentary, narrated by Kevin Sorbo (did I mention that already?), shows how each step of the Galilean wedding — from proposal to ceremony — closely tracks with what Jesus said would happen in end times. I won’t give it away entirely, but if accurate (and it sure seems to make sense), we have a roadmap of God’s heart for those who will pursue Him and the celebration we’re all invited to.
What is being a Christian?
For years, I’ve heard it explained as “asking Jesus into your heart.” That’s one way to put it, but honestly, it’s a commitment to follow God with all your heart. Romans 10:9 puts it this way: “If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” His death on the cross paid the penalty for our sin (all the wrong things). Don’t feel weighed down by all the wrong stuff you’ve done in your life — that you’ve got to somehow clean things up before you come to Him. Do it right where you’re at and commit to following Him with all your heart. Here’s a suggested prayer:
“God, I’ve sinned in my life. I know I’m not perfect. I want to claim Your promise in Romans 10:9 by believing that Jesus is Lord and that He died in my place for my sins. And, that He rose from the dead. I invite you to be the Lord of my life. Thank you for saving me. I know I’m loved — you wouldn’t have sent your Son to die in my place if that wasn’t the case. Fill me with Your Spirit to show me the steps to take in my new journey with You. Amen.”
