One of the things God has been hammering into me this summer:
Call me overboard, but I’ve admitted this many times before.
I do enjoy wedding videos (every… now and then).
This will be the only one that I share;
It’s my favorite.
A real-life picture of the Gospel.
If you so wish, you may watch the full video before reading on.
The videography of this video is excellent, and I have always been a huge fan of Devin Graham.
0:00 – 1:30 is a perfect picture of how awesome God is. His creation cannot be fathomed.
Never eat the frosting off of a cake, say the cake tasted amazing, and then throw the rest of the cake away.
Because, the rest of the video is not about God’s creation as much as it is about human socialization:
3:07 – 4:47 says,
“Today we see a world on fire with data and information, but there is a revolution at the corner. Nothing less than the total translation of our human emotions. These urge into information: pure communication. I believe we are at the frontier. Ahead lies the internet of you: an internet of pure emotion, and genuine connection, to finally take us beyond a cave painting. This is not science fiction. Doctors can talk to people in comas. You can control a toy with your mind. This is now. A world of shared emotion, where the greatest experiences are magnified. A million. A billion times. Can you imagine love? Now can you imagine a love that is a billion times more powerful? And empathy: true feeling.
A new future. A world that we will create, where the borders of language will be gone. Imagine what we will be able to achieve.
Remember me. Remember where you were. The next generation of social media is coming.
For tomorrow is the future we all share.”
Sounds pretty cool, right?
Genesis 11:1-9 says,
“Now the whole earth had one language and one speech. And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar, and they dwelt there. Then they said to one another, ‘Come, let us make bricks and bake them thoroughly.’ They had brick for stone, and they had asphalt for mortar. And they said, ‘Come, let us build ourselves a city, and a tower whose top is in the heavens; let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth.’
But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men had built. And the Lord said, ‘Indeed the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them. Come, let Us go down and there confuse their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.’ So the Lord scattered them abroad from there over the face of all the earth, and they ceased building the city. Therefore its name is called Babel, because there the Lord confused the language of all the earth; and from there the Lord scattered them abroad over the face of all the earth.”
This Social Revolution will be opening the doorways leading to a one world government.
And if you have read the book of Revelation.. well, you will fit the pieces together.
For me, this is one of most tear jerking scenes from the movie, “Up.” Beautifuly done. It gets me every time.
