That terminator is out there, it cant be bargained with, it cant be reasoned with, it doesn’t feel pity or remorse or fear, and it absolutely will not stop…………EVER, untill you are dead!!!!!Kyle Reese, Scene from the Terminator
Do you remember the post I wrote a few days ago about how God reaches out to us through movies? Here is another one where we see a perfect reflection of the devil in the character the terminator. When people ask me what the devil is like, I just give provide them with this quote from the movie terminator.
In it Kyle Reese is trying to explain to Sarah Connors ( the woman the terminator has been sent to Kill) exactly how ruthless this machine is. He’s trying to get through to their human understanding but is having a hard time explaining the obviously higher spiritual concept of what is taking place. He’s a sort of Christ like figure whose talk about time travel and futuristic wars and prophecies makes him appear crazy to the ordinary folk who laugh at him. Then, that laughter turns to sorrow when the terminator shows up and slaughters them all.
The devil doesn’t sleep. You can’t provoke him to love. You can’t bargain with him. While God is pure love, the devil is pure evil. The terminator comes into the world and for a select few in the movie makes himself visible through his actions. However, the devil in reality usually operates undetected through the ignorance of human beings seen only by the select few who have been given the ability to see him at work.
He is relentless and will not stop until you are dead and your soul is dragged to Hell. Like the terminator, he’s already lost the war and is trying to do as much damage as he possibly can before he meets his final end. Christians are like Kyle Reese in the movie. We are sent as prophets to a largely stupid world drunk on the ignorance of all they know but we are viewed as crazy by them.
The stories we tell, the visions or dreams we have are too much for the infirmity of their souls and they’re incapable of seeing the devil who has nothing but the destruction of the entire world in mind. Only when it’s too late and their souls depart this world do they finally get the unfortunate vision of what awaits them. No, this isn’t happy clappy Buddhism and a few corny religious hymns. This is a firm reality and unless you accept what we’ve got to say, you, like those who ridiculed Kyle Reese, are going to perish just like them.
Yes, that evil spirit is out there. it cant be bargained with, it cant be reasoned with, it doesn’t feel pity or remorse or fear, and it absolutely will not stop…………EVER, untill you are dead!!!!!
