I have seen many movies that "portrays" how Armageddon or the end of the world "might be like", Armageddon (1998), The Day After Tomorrow (2004), 2012 (2009), Knowing (2009), etc.
But you know which ones depicts the situation better? (at least for the survivors), is Cast Away (2000).
When I watched it in the winter of 2001 (at the beginning of that year), I did not realized it...
The only thing I remember now is that it made me cry a lot, just like Chuck when he escaped the Island and then "gave up" hope at sea, after he lost his "best friend" Wilson.
I felt like him in a foreign country buried in snow in Wisconsin (my second winter there) and all alone, sometimes we may be surrounded by people but still feel that we are completely alone isn’t it true?
Study that movie, even know how to make a fire is something isn’t it? (don not make it at night to be visible, only inside your tent or cave).
"And that's when this feeling came over me like a warm blanket. I knew, somehow that I had to stay alive. Somehow. I had to keep breathing. Even though there was no reason to hope. And all my logic said that I would never see this place again. So that's what I did. I stayed alive. I kept breathing. And one day, my logic was proven all wrong because the tide came in, and gave me a sail. And now, here I am."
Regarding the Cast Away movie....
I hadn't seeing it in years. I watched it yesterday (a few hour ago).
I found at least 4 very interesting points that come to my mind right now (I need to watch it again):
1-Chuck Noland was a certified sailor...so he did not escape the Island later "by luck", he was prepared in know how to do it right...
2-Kelly's "defending dissertation" would be in January 12, in January of 12' (this year 2012) is when Jehovah opened my eyes and revealed to me the start of Armageddon (2018).
3-In scene # 18-Wilson, in the back of his "face" you can see this: "Official 18 Beach". When was the movie made? 2000 + 18 = 2018. That is the official year set by Jehovah God when you all the survivors of Armageddon will be "Cast Away's"...
4-At the end of the movie in the "crossroads", the "wings" lady tells Chuck the directions, first she mentions: "Well, that's 83 South"...from January 2012 until the possible last month of the start of Armageddon (December of 2018), it would be 83 months. Also in 83' is when I knew Jehovah God (1983, and I was 12 years old).
8 x 3 = 24, how many hours are in a DAY? 24
Going "South", will be your best bet to avoid harsh winters (from the North pole, change directions from the South one). I come from the South (Mexico), and I know what I am talking about since I lived 12 winters and a half in Wisconsin...
Then she mentions: "And this road here will hook you up with I-40 East", I am 40 years now. The temple in Jerusalem was pointing to the East, meaning that Jehovah and the Messiah (Jesus Christ) would "come" from there.
Also the wind had to come from the East, so Chuck could scape the Island...
Make your own conclusions...
And finally this message from the movie as well:
"That is not much time. But we--We live and we die by time, don't we? Now, let's not commit the sin of turning our back on time."
An extra point now that I am watching the movie for the third time...
In the “wings package”, that later Chuck claimed it “saved” his life, what is written in it?
The World On Time. (FedEX message)
It seems that the "I-40" means the length of the Great Tribulation, 40 years.
All my life (40 years) had been kind of a "Great Tribulation" for me...if I could survive that long with the help of Jehovah God, YOU can too.
At first when I found out, I was really scared...for all human kind, but I guess that the "patient" is so ill, that need a "heavy medication"...
In 40 years of sufferings, you will learn what the LOVE of Jehovah and to your neighbor really means.
It will be a "cleaning process" before entering the New World, just like it was for the Israelites before entering the "Promised Land" in Moses days.
I like Moses, disobeyed Jehovah and I wont enter alive the New World...but Jehovah is a merciful and loving Father, Friend and God. He has reassured me that I will be resurrect to be reunited with my loved ones again, in the TRUE Promised Land since the creation of humankind...Jehovah’s New World, that we all together (the loved ones by Jehovah) will help to convert in a Paradise once again.
Moses and all the faithful prophets and messengers of Jehovah, including Daniel and Joseph whose story is kind of "similar" to mine in many important ways (or I should say mine to his), will be there too.
Those 3 will be of my best friends ever!
