In the movie The Day The Earth Stood Still with Keanu Reeves he played a roll as an angel that was sent to this earth with a mission to end the self destruction that was taking place in this fallen world. As he got involved in his mission he realized that their was still hope within a small few that caused him to change the original mission that he was sent to do.
This movie parallels the biblical story of Sodom and Gomorrah in the book of Genesis of the Holy Bible. The Lord sent two angels to Sodom to warn Lot of the destruction that was soon to follow due to the city being infested with sin that eventually destroyed the entire town. Prior to the angels arrival in Sodom and Gomorrah Abraham interceded with the Lord in pleading to save what few righteous there were and this parallels the plea in a small scale of Jennifer Connelly with Keanu Reeves in an attempt to save humanity.
There is a beautiful message in the lessons of Sodom and Gomorrah not only with Abraham but with Lot and his family in the lessons we learn in life when we allow sin to grow out of control. There comes a point in life when man becomes so lost that we cause self destruction for not adhering to the will of God and eventually the Lord will send wrath to the people for their continued sins that they dwell within.
All ideas and thoughts come from one of two sources either being of God or of Satan. When individuals dispute this point and place their thoughts or ideas upon themselves in order to raise themselves up then this is exactly what Satan wants in losing site of the Creator. This movie is an interesting movie when you look at the biblical parallel to Sodom and Gomorrah in comparing it to today’s time that we are in. It is time that we look with spiritual eyes and ears to really see the message that is being delivered to insure the foundation from which we stand.
