What I’m going to write in this article about this movie isn’t what the movie critics have said about it but what God has revealed to me. If you haven’t ever seen the movie, it won’t make a lot of sense but having seen the movie maybe you will have spiritual eyes to see what I’m saying.
The movie goes back and forth with reality and Sandra’s dreams. It is a way of confusing the viewer about what is real and what isn’t. It really can be a confusing movie to watch if you don’t know what’s really going on. I kept track of her awake state and asleep state and figured out what the movie is really about. Now, I don’t know if what I think is what was intended but it’s what God intended me to see.
What God wants us to know is that Satan blurs our line of reality with his LIES! Every time she would go to sleep, she would dream about her husbands death in a car accident. It is believed that premonitions in dreams are foretelling the future. We have to know what the Bible says about this. In Ecclesiastes 8:7 it says, Since no one knows the future,
who can tell someone else what is to come? There is a demonic premonition called an omen. This type of premonition is a sign of things to come. We are forbidden to seek it – even to know its Interpretation. Christians are to stay as far away as possible. Taken from NeverThirstywebsite- http://www.neverthirsty.org/pp/corner/read/r00186.html
We are forbidden to seek it because when we do we are following demonic forces. Satan is out to steal our lives and even kill us if we allow him to do so. It is in our allowing that Satan has authority. We have to stand firm in our faith to resist Satan and his demonic attempts to destroy our lives. Earnestly follow the Holy Spirit which leads us into all understanding. John 16:13, But when He, the Spirit of Truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth [full and complete truth]. For He will not speak on His own initiative, but He will speak whatever He hears [from the Father—the message regarding the Son], and He will disclose to you what is to come [in the future].
Unfortunately, Sandra doesn’t do this. Instead of ignoring these awful dreams, she actually plans out her husbands death on a calendar! I have learned that our thoughts give birth to words and words to action. When our thoughts are set into motion then they come to pass. Our thoughts, words and actions are what molds our lives. Sandra actually creates her reality from her dream because her thoughts gave way into the possibility. She realizes the “day” is soon which was Wednesday, I think, and gets really anxious. She decides to speak to a priest. The best move she could make but she believes the LIE more than the TRUTH! The priest advises never to lose faith, hope and love! He said when you do, then you become an empty vessel for the Devil to use! You have to know what to fight for! She responded, ” I don’t know what to fight for.”
The LIES of Satan obscured her vision, her reality, to where she didn’t know how to fight or what to fight for. I wanted to scream, ” Fight for your husband! Fight for your family!” Satan hates marriage because it is a symbol of God’s love toward us. Evil is out to destroy marriage and the family unit. We must stay diligent to pray for our spouses and our children! Keep our minds and hearts on Jesus and only focus on what the Holy Spirit has for us to do. When we open our minds to premonitions and anything else of satanic origin it opens the door to satanic activity. Maybe this is why Paul said ,”8 Finally, [a]believers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable and worthy of respect, whatever is right and confirmed by God’s word, whatever is pure and wholesome, whatever is lovely and brings peace, whatever is admirable and of good repute; if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think continually on these things [center your mind on them, and implant them in your heart]. Philippians 4:8
Take this as a warning, evil is worse than we can imagine. Evil traps us and then it’s too late. It begins in our minds. Don’t take even the smallest step into that direction lest YOUR life become a demolition as well.
