Sci-Fi Short Film “The Black Hole” presented by DUST

This 3 minutes mini film portrayed man’s greediness incisively and graphically. Therefore, it won the best mini film award in Cannes Film Festival. The black hole, true to its title, brings man into temptation step by step, causing him to fall into the abyss, the black hole of extravagant desire, in which he can never put himself out.

In the beginning of the film, a sleep-deprived man was photocopying some material overtime alone in the office, but the photocopier jammed and nothing was coming out of it. The man was so annoyed that he punched buttons and even kicked the machine. Unexpectedly, the photocopier spit out a paper with a large black spot on it, which shocked the man. And the story gets to the point from here. When the man found his plastic cup disappeared inside the black spot, he looked at the paper unbelievably, gingerly reached into the black spot and picked up the plastic cup from the black hole. At this moment, he discovered that the black spot worked as a black hole. Afterward, he sticked the paper on a vending machine, and successfully took a bar of chocolate out of it. Then he thought for a while and came up with a wicked idea. With a savage look, he decided to get something out of the company’s safe through the black hole. Firstly, he used the black hole to open a locked door. Secondly, he sticked the paper on the safe. Then he looked around gingerly. At first, he fished a pile of money out of the safe with a happy and unusual smile. Then he kept stealing money from the safe through the black hole until his hands couldn’t reach more. He then got into the safe through the black hole. The moment he totally entered the safe, the paper with the black spot sticked on the safe fluttered to the ground. At last, the man got stuck in the safe and rapped the door of the safe from inside. The story ends here, and we have no idea what will happen to the man later.

Although the plot of this mini film is simple, the details are portrayed so meticulously. Through the black hole, the man gets a bar of chocolate first, and then keeps fishing money out of the safe. The change of his expressions and body movements shows that his desire is expanding. After tasting some sweets, he gets greedier and greedier, and even crosses the bottom line of humanity. In the end, he is swallowed up by his desire and only reaps what he has sown. After watching this mini film, I think the man is really greedy. However, if I got the black hole, I might do the same thing as him. Because the greediness of humanity is a universally acknowledged fact. However, who knows why man becomes so greedy and always has a growing desire?

I found the answer from God’s words: “The flesh belongs to Satan. Within it are extravagant desires, it thinks only for itself, it wants to enjoy comfort, and revel in leisure, wallowing in sloth and idleness, and having satisfied it to a certain point you will ultimately be eaten up by it. Which is to say, if you satisfy it this time, next time it will come asking for more. It always has extravagant desires and new demands, and takes advantage of your pandering to the flesh to make you cherish it even more and live among its comforts—and if you don’t overcome it, you will ultimately forfeit yourself.” From God’s words I understand that our pursuit of money and material comforts is for satisfying the extravagant desires of the flesh, because mankind has been corrupted by Satan, and our flesh has satanic corrupt disposition, therefore, we always pursue fleshly comforts and enjoyment and our personal interests. Besides, Satan also follows us, tempting and testing us in various ways. Sometimes our eyes are deceived and unable to tell good from evil. If we continue pursuing to satisfy our desires on and on like this, we’ll forfeit ourselves one day.

Then how can we solve the problem? God’s words also shows us the path of practice: “When you recognize that your motivations are wrong, if you are able to stop practicing according to your conceptions and motivations, and are able to bear testimony to God and stand firm in your position in all that happens to you, this proves that you have rebelled against the flesh. When you rebel against the flesh, there will inevitably be a battle within you. Satan will try and make you follow it, will try and make you follow the conceptions of the flesh and uphold the interests of the flesh—but God’s words will enlighten and illuminate you within, and at this time it is up to you whether you follow God or follow Satan.” “Thus, if you wish to love God, you must pay the price of pain and endure hardship. There is no need for external fervency and hardship, reading more and running about more; instead, you should put aside the things within you: the extravagant thoughts, personal interests, and your own considerations, conceptions, and motivations. Such is God’s will.” From God’s words we can see that if we want to control our desires, we need to forsake our flesh, put aside our wrong motivations and conceptions, and obey the leading and guidance of God’s words. In this way, we’ll have the strength to triumph over Satan’s temptation and trials. Now after we have found the path of practice, can we make a choice different from the man in this story if we meet the black hole one day?

God’s Name-What’s the Name of the Returned Lord Jesus in the Last Days?

Focus on God’s Names: Mystery Series of Jehovah, Jesus and the Almighty: God’s Name—What’s the Name of the Returned Lord Jesus in the Last Days? Through the former two fellowships, many brothers and sisters in the Lord show that never have they known such great significance of God’s names, much less the backgrounds of God’s choice of His names and the desire of God, despite that they have believed in the Lord for years. Moreover, they have never considered that each of God’s names represents one part of the disposition of God and represents the work of God in one age. Thank the Lord! All the glory goes to the Father in heaven! However, brothers and sisters in the Lord are most concerned about whether the Second Coming of Jesus Christ will be called any other name in the last days. That is because we have believed in the Lord for years and have been waiting for the Lord Jesus to take us into the beautiful destination He has prepared for us in accordance with His promise. Now, let’s fellowship about the truth in this aspect. As we all know, God does different works and expresses different dispositions, so He is called different names in different ages. Because the principle of God’s work is never to repeat what He has already completed. This stage of work would be meaningless if He did the same work and was called the same name in different ages. For example, in the Age of Law, God did the work of promulgating laws and commandments and leading the Israelites to live. The Israelites at the time, who abode by the laws and commandments, would receive blessings from God. But if they failed to keep the laws and commandments, they would be cursed by God. In that stage of work, the dispositions God expressed were majesty and wrath, burning and curse. For instance, the priests, who didn’t serve Jehovah God as He required, would be burned by heavenly fire; the common people, who didn’t abide by the Ten Commandments, would be stoned to death. In accordance with God’s work as well as His dispositions expressed in that age, God named Himself “Jehovah.” But at the end of the Age of Law, man was incapable to keep the commandments, with the result that they committed sins continuously. In the end, they even offered crippled or blind oxen, sheep, and doves to God. God did not accept their sacrifices and they could not gain His mercy any longer. Because of such behaviors, they would end up being cursed by God, unable to survive. Therefore, in accordance with the needs of mankind, God was incarnated to do the redemptive work Himself under the name of the Lord Jesus, crucified and becoming man’s sin offering. As long as man prayed to the Lord Jesus, confessed his sins and repented before Him, he would be forgiven of his sins and need not offer oxen, sheep, or doves to God for his sins. Obviously, God’s disposition expressed in the Age of Grace was love and mercy. No matter what sins man committed, man could receive the mercy of the Lord as long as he confessed his sins and repented before Him. Take the licentious woman for example. She was caught and brought before the Lord Jesus, but He did not condemn her but just commanded her not to commit sins from then on. Therefore, in the Age of Grace, God’s name was no longer called Jehovah, but the Savior Lord Jesus who was full of mercy and love. So, if we want to know whether God will be called by any other name in the last days, we firstly need to know what work God will do in the last days. Let’s study several verses in the Bible, “And I saw another angel fly in the middle of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters” (Revelation 14:6-7). “Because he has appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he has ordained; whereof he has given assurance to all men, in that he has raised him from the dead” (Acts 17:31). “And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. He that rejects me, and receives not my words, has one that judges him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day” (John 12:47-48). From these verses, we see that God will come to judge all nations and all peoples in the last days. But why will He judge all nations and all peoples? While pondering, I think of the church condition at present. Most believers lose the previous faith and love and are unable to sincerely spend for God. More than a few believers chat and sleep at meetings. Believers cannot hold on to the Lord’s way and teachings any longer. Many illegal things keep emerging in the church, such as struggling for fame and fortune, raising jealousy and strife, stealing offerings, etc. They pursue worldly trends, covet the fleshly enjoyment in sins, living in the cycle of sin and repentance. For example, one of my Christian friends called me and said the other day, “I can’t help committing sins at home, either quarreling with my husband or getting annoyed with my children. In the church, I often show jealousy and hatred toward others on account of some trifles. The Bible says, ‘Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord’ (Hebrews 12:14). How can a person like me see the Lord’s face? Doesn’t that mean I’ve wasted time all these years?” After she poured her heart out, I felt that I lived in sin and could not overcome sin like her. I could do nothing but comfort her with a few words. But when I thought of the scripture, “For if we sin willfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remains no more sacrifice for sins” (Hebrews 10:26), I did not know what to say at that time. If I told her keeping confessing sins could allow us to be forgiven by the Lord, this was following doctrines and words obviously. But, are there any choices except confessing sins? Seeing the two scriptures and thinking about the conditions of the church as well as the state of believers, I think the Lord will do the work of judgment when He returns in the last days. Maybe man will be purified through God’s work of judgment. If not, God will not allow us who are filled with corruption to enter into His kingdom. And the Bible records the Lord Jesus will return to separate the tares from the wheat, the goats from the sheep, and the wicked servants from the good servants, which is, He will do the work of reaping and winnowing, rewarding the good and punishing the evil and classifying man according to kind. Since He will do the work of judgment, He will judge and purify man with righteous disposition, so that man will be classified according to kind. Then, will God bring a new name when doing a new work? I remember the Revelation records: “Him that overcomes will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write on him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from my God: and I will write on him my new name” (Revelation 3:12). “And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvelous are your works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are your ways, you King of saints” (Revelation 15:3). “And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunder, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigns” (Revelation 19:6). According to the records of these verses, when God comes to do His work, He will take a new name and will be called “the Almighty” to reign as King. So, it is highly possible that God will come to do His work under the name of “the Almighty,” namely Almighty God, when He returns to take us in the last days. Through studying the Bible these days, I have realized that no matter what name God takes in each age, each name is brought due to the need of the management work. It is not taken at will, but is of age significance. Regardless of the changes to His names, the works of saving mankind are still done by one God, for the principle of His work is to use the name to change the age. When I get the enlightenment and illumination of the Holy Spirit, I have great confidence that I can welcome the return of the Lord Jesus. Brothers and sisters in the Lord, concerning the mystery of God’s names, let’s end it here. If you have different points of view, please keep in touch with us. We can call on the Lord for guidance together again to know more truths we neglect before. All the glory and praise be to our Father in heaven! Amen!
