Movies selection n°3

Good morning disciple of CHRIST! May every voice contrary to the LORD's be silenced in your life. I don't watch exclusively Christian movies, but I exclusively do watch movies that edify me. Some movies are commercially labeled Christian but unfortunately do not conform to the message and values of the Kingdom. I like films and series whose theme, message, script, and images instruct me, encourage me, inspire me, and are consistent with my values. There is no shortage of DVDs at home. On a personal basis and through my association Partage Ton Rhema, I regularly offer Christian filmography.

The Chosen

*Les choisis

" Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me." (Revelation 3:20, NKJV)

A series that no longer needs to be presented 🙂, certainly The Chosen is a series to follow and above all to make known. The theme of the series is the life and ministry of JESUS, ​​seen and told through his disciples. Beyond the talent of the actors, I particularly appreciate the quality and simplicity of the script. We are far, really far (I insist), from commercial, so-called "Christian" productions. The initiator of the project is the American Dallas Jenkis (director, co-screenwriter, and producer). The series is funded by crowdfunding. To date, it has been translated into more than 100 languages, ​​and the team does not intend to stop there! The languages ​​of our brothers and sisters in persecuted and isolated territories are not forgotten! In the past, I had studied the lives of the apostles Peter, Paul, Philip, Luke, John and Thomas. While watching this series, I became interested in other disciples. There is no shortage of DVDs with me, but surprisingly this one, yes. Every time I buy it, the HOLY SPIRIT asks me to give it to unbelievers. One of the thoughts that often comes back to me while watching the series is " JESUS ​​does not ask us to be perfect, but to follow him. GOD is looking for people like you."

Higher Calling

" And we know that all things work together for good to those who love GOD, to those who are the called according to His purpose." (Romains 8:28, NKJV)

A three-part production of Mount Zion Faith Ministries. This is the story of John, a brilliant student called to the ministry, the eldest son of a wealthy Nigerian Christian family. After failing academically, he is singled out by his family for overzealous church activities. John's father grew up poor. He is a Christian, a wealthy businessman, who wants his sons to go to a prestigious school in the United States and succeed him. He cannot conceive that GOD's will for his son might be different from his own. Sadly, there are still people, especially in Africa, who are convinced that the call to ministry is for the poor and the uneducated. One wonders if we are reading the same Bible. The least we can say while watching this series is that all things work together for the good of those who love GOD and serve him. "When GOD approves a man's ways, He disposes favorably of him even his enemies." (Proverbs 16:7, LSG). Finally, john

Being a Christian, or serving GOD, will never be an excuse to neglect your studies or your work. But let's not kid ourselves, our commitment to our destiny will be tested. Trials reveal our character, our motivations, and if we are in GOD's will, they reveal our potential. I particularly salute the direction and casting of this film. For the record, the lead actor, Fiyinfolu C P Okedare (John), is a senior auditor & financial analyst in one of the largest firms in the world. He's a discreet man whose reputation is well established. Someone said, " He who can't say NO, doesn't know the value of a YES ".

Amazing Grace

" Receive him therefore in the Lord with all gladness, and hold such men in esteem; because for the work of CHRIST he came close to death, not regarding his life, to supply what was lacking in your service toward me." (Philippians 2: 29, NKJV)

We owe the abolition of slavery and segregation to the commitment of thousands of people of all races and social ranks. Contrary to what some would have us believe, there are not only blacks and afro-descendants who have fought and are still fighting against racial discrimination.

William Wilberforce (1759 -1833) is the main character of the film and glory to GOD for all those who walked beside him. William really met the LORD in 1785. Convinced by his friends William Pitt (the youngest Prime Minister of Great Britain), Thomas Clarkson, Hannah More, and others to commit himself against the British slave trade. For 26 years, he carried the proposed bill, passed by the English Parliament, which abolished in 1087 to the abolition of the slave trade, in 1833 to the abolition of slavery in England, and extended in 1838 in the British West Indian colonies. In 1833, more than 5,000 petitions with a total of more than one and a half million signatures demanded the abolition of slavery in the British Parliament. William died in 1933, three days after the vote of the law he defended for 26 years. For the record, Denmark was the first European country to abolish the slave trade in 1792, followed by England (1807) and the United States (1808). I have read the biography of William and his friends. There are many lessons to be learned. Throughout his life, William was around two types of people: those who taught the entire gospel with balance and those who refused to do nothing. ⇒ Fight the good fight and surround yourself with those who fight the good fight.

🙂 I hope you enjoyed this selection. See you at the next one! Until then, I tell you, don't underestimate what GOD wants to do through you.
