Every day, another movie claims to have won the hearts of America through its portrayal of events and circumstances. I wonder what would happen if someone were to write a screenplay about the return of Messiah. It would describe in excruciating detail the widespread level of apathy, regardless of whether the religious institution is a cult, a Mormon church, a Catholic or Lutheran church, an apostolic ministry, an evangelical offshoot of a major academic institution, a Protestant church, or a Baptist mega church.
No one seems to be seeing the demonic spirits hard at work trying to convince them that Jesus' return is in the future, or that they should wait for the third temple to be built. No one even imagines that when they see Jesus Of Nazareth, they might be critical of his appearance, in the same way that the Jews were critical. They pray to a Jesus who previously was unseen, and who allowed their imaginations to run wild. The reality may be too shocking for them to embrace.
The Lord God Almighty expects that many will leave the faith and turn to idols and demonic spirits. Many others may become agnostic or atheist, and still others may be shocked into a new form of religious expression. He expects also that the days will grow longer, and the nights will shorten, that weak knees will grow strong, that peace will replace wars, that apathy will give way to hope, and that every child of God will rise up to take their place in his kingdom.
