“Silence of the Lambs” excerpt.
Disclaimer: if this message speaks to your heart, and it brings you pain; then remember the Lords Mercy is new everyday and He says to you…MY Child…Begin Again.
Psalm 14: 2
The LORD has looked down from heaven upon the sons of men to see if there are any who understand… any who seek after God?
If you are like most people, the first thing that comes to mind from this story title is the movie about Hannibal Lecter, a man who killed people and then ate them.
The movie was called “Silence of the Lambs” and stared Anthony Hopkins. Anthony Hopkins is an actor’s actor. By that I mean he researches his roles so thoroughly that he literally becomes the person he is being called to portray.
You believe his performances because he has mastered the psyche of the person he plays. Mr. Hopkins also starred in the movie about the life of C. S. Lewis; a born again, believer in the Lord Jesus Christ.
So here is a man who exposed himself through in depth research, and then mastered the display of the depravity of mankind exhibited by murder and deception and then to the bottom of the pit to cannibalism, as exemplified by Hannibal Lecter.
Then Mr. Hopkins exposed himself through in depth research into the heart and mind of a believer, in the Lord Jesus Christ. C.S. Lewis is a man that God had on an anvil. A man who was literally re-formed by the hammer blows of God, who then reached out to the God who refined him and purified him and became a believer in Christ.
These two portrayals represent the two extremes of mankind. There are only two types of people. The unsaved for which the depths of depravity will someday in the future come out and completely control them and their actions.
And there is the True Believer in the Lord Jesus Christ in whom OBEDIENCE to his walk of faith controls his life. Because he realizes that ALL Sin is performed before the face of God and that he will be accountable for each Sin even though he is forgiven.
This story as it continues will not look into either extreme of mankind’s faith in himself or mankind’s faith in the God who made him.
However we will look into those professing believers, that disgust Jesus the most. Those that are neither hot nor cold but lukewarm in their professed faith in Christ. Those that Jesus would rather “Spit out of HIS mouth”.
15 “‘I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were either cold or hot! 16 So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth.”
