“But Oz never did give nothing to the Tin Man,

that he didn’t, didn’t already have”

1974 Song, ‘Tin Man’, by ‘America’

.

Yes, the Wizard of Oz was a truly incredible work of unforgettable and magical imagery, which made a tremendous impact upon movie fans around the world!

.

In it, little fresh-faced Dorothy of Kansas captured the hearts of millions, as she and her three companions sought after the seemingly divine providence of the awesome and dreadful Wizard of Oz!

But like so many other false ideas emanating from this world, Lucifer’s Kingdom of Babylon, the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPGstory of the Wizard of Oz was no exception.

.

And today’s devotional is dedicated to exposing just one of those lies/myths.

.

And this lie is concerning the Tin Woodsman, who was lacking a heart, and joined Dorothy’s pilgrimage to seek after the Wizard’s providence.

WIZARD OF OZ: SECULAR WORLD’S ANSWER TO PILGRIM’S PROGRESS

.

Oh yes, that magical movie, The Wizard of Oz, captivated the hearts of movie-fans for decades, because it was so http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/File:The_Pilgrim%27s_Progress_by_Byam_Shaw05.jpgcharming, colorful, and masterfully-produced!

.

And yet, as wonderful as it seemed, it nevertheless was actually just a cheap “knock-off” of John Bunyan’s allegorical tale, Pilgrim’s Progress.

.

And it was actually just the mirror-opposite of Bunyan’s book, in that it directed the movie audience back down to this present world, instead of upward, to Heaven, as did Bunyan’s tale. In other words, the far-away Land of Oz was really just a cleverly-disguised version of this world. And the Wizard was nothing more than an atheist’s version of a non-existent God.

.

And the Wizard telling the Tin Man that he didn’t need a heart because he already had one, was just another deceitful lie by the “god of this world”, who would like us to believe that we humans can have inherent goodness apart from God! (see 2nd Corinthians 4:4)

THE HUMAN HEART: DECEITFUL & DESPERATELY WICKED!

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Tin_Woodman.pngIt’s just like some songsters sang back in the 1970’s, “But Oz never did give nothing to the Tin Man, that he didn’t already have!”

.

But nothing could be further from the truth! No, just the opposite! The Bible informs us that the human heart, “is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” Jeremiah 17:9

.

Yes, the Bible reveals the true condition of the human heart: “deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked”

“…the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed”

Luke 2:35

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Tin_Woodman.pngBut while many unconverted citizens of this, the Devil’s world, have been deluded by that Master-Deceiver into believing they possess a loving heart, there are many others who, like the Tin Man, realize they have a loveless heart. Often these heartless ones are diagnosed by the psychiatric community as being “sociopaths”, lacking any love and lacking a conscience to some degree.

.

But truth-be-told, the hour is coming in which all those who have not been truly Born Again will be fully made aware that they too are in need of a heart!

.

Yes, the frightful hour is coming in which God will allow the entire world to reveal just how evil and loveless we fallen humans really are!

“The hands of the pitiful women have sodden their own children: they were their meat in the destruction of the daughter of My people.”

Lamentations 4:10

http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bestand:Cannibalism_1571.PNG.

The Bible actually prophesy’s that parents will even be cannibalizing their own children and visa-versa… “Therefore the fathers shall eat the sons in the midst of thee, and the sons shall eat their fathers; and I will execute judgments in thee, and the whole remnant of thee will I scatter into all the winds.” Ezekiel 5:10

.

This Old Testament prophecy will soon be re-fulfilled on a grand world-wide scale!

.

Yes, very soon, God is going to remove any false delusion that we humans possess any inherent goodness, apart from God!

GOOD NEWS: “A new heart also will I give you

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:PProg_17_p47_HisBurdenFellOffHisBack.jpgWell, what’s the Good News here in this horrible report?

.

The Good News is, that it’s not too late to receive a heart filled with true agape love! Listen again to the Bible…“A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.” Ezekiel 36:26

.

Yes, God can take away any stony-cold loveless heart, and give any one of us who realize that “I too am merely a loveless, heartless Tin-Man” a brand new heart that has the same love and mercy which Jesus has! And as we know, Jesus, our Savior had a heart of infinite love, as He gave His life for an unloving and heartless world who hated Him and spurned His infinite love, crucifying Him on that cruel Cross of Calvary!
