Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will be Done
The technology Sentinel developed can transport matter through time and space (a space bridge), with the potential to reshape the universe. This technology involved hundreds of pillars that when set up and activated can transport things from one world to another. This spiritually represents PILLARS of either God’s Kingdom or the enemy’s kingdom that we can set up and establish in this earth. When set up and activated, these pillars carry the power to bring things from either God’s Kingdom or satan’s kingdom into this world.
Pillars in Scripture can be positive or negative. Pillars can be a WITNESS (Gen 31:52), a MONUMENT to the Lord (Gen 28; 35 AMP) or to someone else (II Samuel 18:18), a WATCHPOST (Gen 31:49 AMP), the manifest Presence of God – through which He appears, speaks, protects, and guides (Exodus 33:9-10, Numbers 12:5; 14:14, Deuteronomy 31:15, Nehemiah 9:19, Isaiah 99:7), a representation of Israel (Exodus 24:4), a representation of God’s house (Gen 28:22), a symbol of God’s anointed/chosen (as in the case of the prophet Jeremiah – Jeremiah 1:18), a symbol of faithful followers of Christ who overcome (Revelation 3:12), a support structure to uphold His tabernacle and temple (Exodus 40:18, I Kings 7; 10, II Kings 23:3), a support structure to uphold the earth and the heavens (Job 9:6; 26:11, Psalm 75:3, II Samuel 2:8 AMP – from the story of HANNAH – “pillars” here may have both natural and spiritual application), and a support structure to uphold God’s Truth (I Timothy 3:14-15).
But they can also represent “idols” of the enemy’s kingdom (Exodus 34:12-14, Leviticus 26:1, Deuteronomy 7:3-6 AMP, and many others), and the support structure for temples of false/demon gods (Judges 16).
In the film, it’s revealed that the decepticons’ plan is to bring their entire planet to earth. This led to some powerful end-times imagery. When only a few pillars were activated, it opened portals in the heavens to bring other decepticons (representing demon powers) through. But when the enemy activated all his “pillars” all over the earth, they exerted a powerful force which drew the enemy’s “kingdom” to earth. As in a previous note, here again, we see the concept of the “bizarro” world. God’s true plan is for His Kingdom to come and His will to be done on earth as it is in Heaven, which we will eventually see fully through the reign of Christ. Yet, the bizarro-christ (antichrist) is trying to thwart and usurp God’s plan, attempting to bring about his opposite, inverted, and perverted kingdom on the earth instead.
When we look up the English definition of “pillar” we find:
- “a large post that helps to hold up something (such as a roof);…a firm upright support for a superstructure”
- “… one standing alone for a monument”
- “someone who is an important member of a group; …a supporting, integral, or upstanding member or part ~ a pillar of society” “One who occupies a central or responsible position: a pillar of the state; … a person who is a chief supporter of a state, institution, etc., …a prominent supporter: a pillar of the Church.”
- “a fundamental precept a basic fact, idea, or principle of something” (definitions from Merriam-webster.com, thefreedictionary.com)
The spiritual implications are exploding! We first see that these pillars, which cause either God’s Kingdom or satan’s kingdom to come into/be established in the earth, represent either God’s Word (precepts, principles) or the enemy’s principles.
HE SPOKE TO THEM IN (OR THROUGH) THE PILLAR of cloud; (and) they kept His testimonies and the statutes that He gave them. Psalm 99:7
The word translated “testimonies” is the Hebrew word ‘edah ~ “testimony, witness; always of laws as divine testimonies; something that testifies, testimonies, a precept (of God)”
The word translated “statutes” is the Hebrew word choq ~ “statute, ordinance, limit, something prescribed, due; prescribed task;…action prescribed;…prescribed limit, boundary; …decree; law…;…civil enactments prescribed by God.” (definitions from Strong’s Lexicon – blueletterbible.com)
God came to speak to His people, manifested as a PILLAR! Through this Pillar He made known His Word, principles, precepts, decrees ~ His boundaries for our lives (which enable us to live in His freedom). Just as He spoke through a PILLAR to deliver His testimonies and statutes (His Word) to the people, those words, principles, precepts are PILLARS through which He is still speaking to us today.
Secondly, I believe He showed us that these pillars also represent either His PEOPLE or those who are still part of the enemy’s kingdom (as in definitions 2 and 3 of “pillar” above). When we first saw the concept of pillars being established in order to bring either God or satan’s kingdom to earth, not only did the idea of God’s principles vs. the enemy’s principles come to mind, but also this passage:
Although I hope to come to you before long, I am writing these instructions to you so that, If I am detained, you may know how people ought to conduct themselves in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, the PILLAR and stay (the prop and support) of THE TRUTH. I Timothy 3:14-15
Here we see that THE CHURCH is (meaning Christians are) to be the PILLARS, the SUPPORTS, which UPHOLD THE TRUTH ~ GOD’S WORD.
The sum of Your word is truth [the total of the full meaning of all Your individual precepts]; and every one of Your righteous decrees endures forever. Psalm 119:160
Sanctify them [purify, consecrate, separate them for Yourself, make them holy] by the Truth; Your Word is Truth. John 17:17
In addition to His Word/principles being Pillars through which He is still speaking to us today, He calls US to be His PILLARS through which He continues to speak (delivering the Pillars of His Word) in order to establish and uphold His Kingdom (where He reigns and His will is done on earth as in Heaven).
Yet, when for whatever reason (distraction, spiritual dullness and insensitivity, complacency, fear, deception, etc.), we fail to be the PILLARS God has called us to be ~ failing to firmly stand and uphold the Truth of His Word ~ and therefore allow the Pillars of His Word to be removed from our lives and society, the way is made for the enemy to establish his pillars (his word, principles, will, ways) which uphold his deceptions and establish his kingdom on earth. We can all observe that the Pillars upholding God’s Truth have been in the process of being torn down and removed by society and that the enemy’s pillars have been in the process of being set up/established all over the earth. Through this, his kingdom is being drawn with an increased speed and force to earth.
If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do? (Psalm 11:3)
(see also FB post from July 23, 12)
When we connect this message to the message of the blood moons mentioned (in part 1), it seems the Lord is telling His people that by allowing the world to come in between us and Him we’re no longer able to be His faithful witnesses and we’re no longer standing as His PILLARS who uphold His Truth (the Pillars of His Word) in the earth. But! God is also continuing to give us a message of hope in the film… if His Pillars (His people) will stand firmly in our place and be willing to sacrifice all in order to see the Pillars of His Word re-established and the pillars of the enemy’s kingdom torn down.
