In the movie titled “ The Last Samurai” starring Tom Cruise there is a lesson in this movie regarding the spirit in how to align ourselves with a single direction while removing our minds from this world. This is exactly what the Lord tried to teach us in the Old Testament. But there was one part in this maturity in the Spirit that is often left out and that is who gives us this helper in the spirit and the completion of how love conquers all through the life of Jesus Christ in the New Testament.
This movie has a powerful message in discipline, respect and honor that shows power in the spirit once we align ourselves with the task we have at hand. But in this movie there is a very important factor to recognize that was not pointed out in giving the glory to God instead of placing the recognition on man. This same message is portrayed from many men that have taught the Art of War like Sun Tzu and other great tactical warriors. But far too often we as humans look upon the man in the flesh instead of looking upon God through Jesus Christ in recognizing the spirit which carries us forward in life.
There is only one way to have true victory and that is through the love of Jesus Christ and recognizing the spirit that we follow. Many people fail to acknowledge and even recognize the giver of the spirit in who gives and takes away. The wisdom and discipline that is portrayed in this movie did not come from man but from God in how we are to align ourselves in the spirit while giving up something of ourselves for the life of someone else. Tom Cruise in this movie ” The Last Samurai” taught a lesson in honor that was originally taught in the Holy Bible and even fulfilled in the life of Jesus Christ. When he gave up his way of life for someone else in what was right then you can say he pulled up his cross in giving up his life for the sake of others. Can you see the parallel in this movie with Tom Cruise and what Jesus taught each of us in His walk of life? Never allow Satan to do what is wrong in trying to remove something in your heart which you know is right! But always remember to act in the love of Jesus Christ in not acting in the physical while allowing God to work in the spiritual.
Here is a short but powerful poem from page 45 in the book Special Delivery that that the Lord placed on my heart. If you will open your eyes and ears to the words that are spoken then you will hear the wisdom in the depth of thought:
Game Of Life
Life is a game that can be compared to chess.
Analyze each move and always know your surroundings.
Protect your family and guard your heart.
Don’t make the same mistake twice
And take your time before you move.
Do this to insure your objective and not to hurt others.
Move graciously within love and enjoy the time you have to play.
Instructing others for the day that you must step aside
And let someone else begin carrying on our true Kings way! Amen
