Whether Hollywood knows it or not, the Lord has again used it to boldly & prophetically lay out perspective for the coming days. Of course, if one looks at the movie without a Kingdom lens, without seeing through the eyes of our spirit, we will only see a movie about kids believing in Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, Jack Frost, the Sandman, the Tooth Fairy, the Boogie Man, & the Man on the Moon. However, if one seeks first the Kingdom of Heaven as the lens perspective of life, something far beyond the obvious, something significantly impacting our present & our future can be clearly seen.

In a nutshell, the movie is about a deep darkness rising up to overtake the earth, removing the light of faith in individuals all around the world, specifially, the children, which is KEY (see Isaiah 60:2a, ‘”for behold, darkness will cover the earth and deep darkness the peoples…”). Guardians have been appointed to protect the children, ensuring they are surrounded with faith, hope & joy (Isaiah 60:1, 2b, “Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you…But the Lord will rise upon you and His glory will appear upon you.” ), as everything depends on the children believing (Romans 10:9-11, “that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation. For the Scripture says, “WHOEVER BELIEVES IN HIM WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED”).

Throughout the movie, the Guardians are propelled into battle with darkness on deeper & darker levels. Knowing their ‘center’ (their identity & calling) hugely impacts the Guardian’s strength for battling the darkness, as well as the children’s belief in each Guardian. As faith decreases, darkness increases, as does the strength of each of the Guardian’s. However, at the climax of the movie, in the midst of faith all across the earth being literally wiped out by fear, the faith of one child remains. This one child’s faith is enough to fight off the deepest overwhelming darkness & stir others to believe again. In fact, one child’s faith stirring others to believe again is what strengthens & empowers the Guardians’ ability to continue the raging battle against the darkness. This one child boldly standing up to the fear…standing up to the darkness…& his faith in overcoming fear, is what actually begins the transformation back to the light, the hope & the joy returning to all children across the earth. The concluding message was to always believe what ‘the Man on the Moon’ tells you about yourself: that he actually talks & we can actually hear him speak…we just need to listen & believe what he tells us.

Through a Kingdom lens, we all know this is to be our Creator…the God of the Universe who created the moon, & through Holy Spirit dwelling within each of us through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, we know the Truth. Jesus Christ, the Truth, has purchased an identity in Himself for each one of us to believe & receive by faith, & then we are called to walk out our specific calling/gifting, empowered by Holy Spirit, in representing the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth, releasing His love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control, mercy, & justice wherever we have been assigned.

I have seen this spiritual & natural battle for this generation in my spirit & in my prayers for a number of years. Scriptures that have layers of supernatural revelation have guided the eyes of my spirit & my prayers: Joel 2, Isaiah 60-61, Amos 9:11, John 4:23-24, Revelations, to name only a few. In the movie, it was the Guardian’s (all adults with the exception of one youth, whose appointed time had been established for such a time as this – Esther 4:14) linking arms with the children that manifested the faith & the strength to overcome the fear & darkness, to the extent that the darkness had to flee into the abyss.

It is absolutely time for the Body of Christ to arise in the fullness of all that Jesus Christ purchased for mankind at the cross through His shed blood. It is time to protect the children on every level in entirely new supernaturally empowered ways…from the unborn to the captives of poverty, the sex-trade, the slave-trade, orphans/an orphan spirit, sickness, war, persecution, to being deceived & steeped in humanistic education & agendas, robbing this generation of faith in Jesus Christ as their only Source of Hope & Joy; as their only Source of the ability to overcome the fear & darkness that is surfacing & will continue to rise up on entirely new levels.

It’s time to arise in His glory with entirely new levels of rivers of living water flowing from our inmost being – rivers of the Spirit of the Lord, His Spirit of Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel, Might, Knowledge, & the Fear of the Lord (John 7:38, Isaiah 11:1-2, Revelations) – linking arms multi-generationally, establishing the children & youth into their rightful position within the army of the Lord. This majorly includes protecting them from fear, unbelief, & the lies of the kingdom of darkness. This majorly involves seeking & receiving His plan in leading them into ALL Truth, as Truth is the Person of Jesus Christ. This majorly involves believing for & receiving His empowering to do the greater works He has called us to for these present days (John 14:12). In the movie, it literally required starting over with the faith of one child to reverse all of the unbelief at the root/core of the immense darkness. The faith, rather than fear, of one child reversed the course of the entire journey for all.

Matthew 18:2-5, ‘For an answer Jesus called over a child, whom he stood in the middle of the room, and said, “I’m telling you, once and for all, that unless you return to square one and start over like children, you’re not even going to get a look at the kingdom, let alone get in. Whoever becomes simple and elemental again, like this child, will rank high in God’s kingdom. What’s more, when you receive the childlike on my account, it’s the same as receiving me’ (The Message).
