The Jesus Conversation
The Black Panther movie was a strong reminder of where the church has been, where she ought to be, and where she will be.
Much of the church isn't aware of the PRESENT TRUTH that, through the finished work of Christ, we already dwell in the "Land of Vibranium" (Seated in heavenly places in Christ)...and on earth, simultaneously.
Many hide out in their cocoon communities...away from "the world"...awaiting its destruction rather than cooperating in its healing. Some would love to use a sort of Anti-Vibranium (not exercising real power...just acting like mice with religious megaphones) to bully and conquer the world through fear-mongering, political and military means. For others "Justice" requires vengeance, by means of their own wrath.
It brings me great joy to know that Jesus, our Glorious Leader, has a Kingdom of Priests who will ultimately use all of "Wakanda's" Resurrection Power and resources for Earth's good!
I'm no movie expert, but I give this one an A+!
It was great...and on so many levels. I especially loved the way that it beautifully portrayed African people and people of African descent.
I'll save my comments about the constant presence of very strong women, throughout the film, for another post.
