The Coming Convergence: Movie Review

Tonight I watched a movie called “The Coming Convergence” which I wanted to write about in case you’ve not heard about it and want to watch it.  A Christian film, it focuses on bible prophecy and how bible prophecy is always exact and tells the truth.

It says that the bible has over 2,500 prophetic messages and that the bible has survived the rise and fall of countless civilizations, keeping biblical records preserved over time.  Ancient artifacts are still discovered that support religious events talked about in the bible. 

I jotted topical notes and quotes from the movie that I thought were striking, many that I knew about already.  Here are some.

Mankind today is distracted by things we buy which covers up fear but these things do not last, so what is the value in superficial items? 

There is a paradox in a world that asks what happens to the world.  Some believe instinctively that the world has to end, but not knowing how it will end, they blame God.  The movie’s young star takes us through her reasoning about why she is still on the earth and she asks, how can the world blame someone who they don’t believe is there?

The bible talks about the convergence of catastrophic events in the end times that we are in now, how ominous things come upon the earth that will be cataclysmic natural disasters.  Earthquakes have increased in frequency and intensity and earthquakes symbolize “birth pains” of the world.

Regarding earthquakes, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) data of the last 100 years point to the fact that earthquakes are in fact increasing, and how the USGS is in denial of their own data.

The bible talks about how the stars will be darkened, the moon will turn to a red blood color and the sun will turn black in several places.  Examples are Matt 24:29; Acts 2:20; Joel 2:31.  These darkenings of the stars, moon and the sun would be caused by the ash caused by volcanic eruptions resulting from the increase in earthquakes, and that earthquakes will occur in unusual places.  Many volcanoes lie under the ocean and are not yet discovered, it is thought.

Man cannot create perfection, even in a time that the world might find it’s savior in a man risen up to save the world; we know him as “the antichrist” who we know will not keep his peaceful stance in the world but will cause great destruction, leading to the Apocalypse.  

The world is raising up death itself, but the purpose of destroying life on earth again is to end the suffering and death going on now.  God proves that He is the One True God.

I thought it was a movie worth sharing.  In a documentary format, it interweaves some of the well-known Christians who study prophecy, adding their commentary about the facts of bible prophecy, proving the point that God stands true to his word he has given the world in which to know what happens in the end times, his history and prophecy that repeats itself from the Old Testament throughout the New.

What an exciting time we live in.
