Is the movie Left Behind (2014) for real?


When millions of people vanish from off the face of the earth in the Biblical event known as the Rapture many people in the world will conjure up ideas as to what happened.  Was it a mass Alien abduction, terrorist related conspiracy or something else?  Many people who are left behind on the earth will make up different reasons for why the people seemed to vanish except for what really happened as described in the Bible.

“The Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first.
Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air.   1 Thessalonians 4:16-17

The newest movie Left Behind (2014) portrays the chaos, sheer panic and fear that many will experience when millions of people disappear.  The movie also shows the denial of Jesus that people will have (and also have now) at the coming for His Church in the moment of the Rapture.   It accurately shows a world of people who ignore prophecy of the Bible and seek to explain this time in terms other than for what it actually is.

For these reasons many do not like the movie Left Behind and do I dare say, hate it because of its accurate and truthful portrayal of these events.  It candidly shows typical reactions from those who do not have a relationship with Jesus Christ as Lord.  People are already at enmity with God and this movie proves this enmity is real.

Whether you did or didn’t like the movie, the important thing for us all to do is to ask questions about matters that truly matter.   Some such questions are,  is Jesus really who He claims to be?  His Jesus really God?   If so, what are you going to do about it?    Are you ready to face God on Judgment Day for sin (breaking His commands)?  Is the event seen in this movie really going to happen and if so, what does it mean for us?  Is Hell real and if so, why does it exist?  Would you consider yourself to be a good person?  Good enough to go to Heaven? How will you know?   Why not take the ultimate test linked at and find out more?

“Know this first of all, that in the last days mockers will come with their mocking, following after their own lusts,  and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming?  For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.”    For this they willfully forget: that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water,   by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water.    But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.”    2 Peter 3:3-7

Have you seen it? Left Behind (2014) starring Nicolas Cage

The Independent Movie Database (IMDb) is a subsidiary of and is a source for information and reviews on movies, tv programs and games.  However, despite its name, the Independent Movie Database features generally subjective opinion based ratings and reviews rather than objective ones.   And as I want to note here, these reviews don’t necessarily accurately represent or reflect truthfulness for movies that are closely Bible based.

One film in particular found on the IMDb is hated by many people who already hate God in the Bible or choose not to believe Him and His Word.    This fact is not more truly seen than for the movie Left Behind (2014) starring Nicolas Cage.   The rating for this movie is quite low and the reviews are generally quite negative all the while people mock and scoff at the film through review after review.    In addition, the negativity against this movie is also clearly seen on a typical internet search for it.  But is the mocking and hatred justified?    Despite all the scoffing, hatred and mockery of it, the movie content, truthfulness and acting make it one of the best films available.   Therefore if you are a lover of seeking truth and haven’t already seen the movie, I highly recommend you watch Left Behind (2014) sooner rather than later.

A little about mocking

Most people mock this movie and other Christian based movies just like they mock at God and followers of Jesus Christ.  The human heart is at enmity with God and with what Jesus said about our sinfulness and about the need for repentance is not a popular message.  In fact, Jesus was murdered after He was tortured for His claims of being God and exposing sin in the human heart.   Therefore a negative reaction to the Left Behind movie (and especially Biblical truth) should be expected from someone who is not a believer in Jesus Christ and are not saved from the wrath to come on the coming Day of Judgment.    Are you Ready?

“It is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment”  Hebrews 9:27
