I watched my first ever (and probably last) episode of Walking Dead. The premise of the program is a virus has infected mankind. People get a burning hot fever and die only to come back as a zombie. The infection can be spread by being bitten by one of the zombies. The program centers on the survivors more than the infected.
I remember the original 1968 Night of the Living Dead in which it is inferred that radiation reanimated the dead.
The first credited zombie movie was in 1932 called White Zombie, starring Bela Lugosi, of Dracula and The Wolfman fame.
There have been many movies since that time and almost 400 in the last 10 years.
The world has literally gone zombie crazy with books and documentaries written on zombie survival.
I want to share something that happened from the pages of the Bible.
The graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised; and coming out of the graves after His resurrection, they went into the holy city and appeared to many. Matt 27:52-53
What does that sound like in today’s terms?
Here is another – their dead bodies will lie in the street of the great city which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. Then those from the peoples, tribes, tongues, and nations will see their dead bodies three-and-a-half days, and not allow their dead bodies to be put into graves. Rev 11:8-9
Now after the three-and-a-half days the breath of life from God entered them, and they stood on their feet, and great fear fell on those who saw them. Rev 11:11
Why would great fear fall upon everyone? Zombies!
The world is already making up an excuse or “logical” explanation for the resurrection of the dead in Christ – the zombie apocalypse.
I am very certain there is nothing to fear from those in Christ that rise from the dead, seeing that we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. 1 Thess 4:17
I’ll have more on this subject later.
He is not the God of the dead but of the living, for all live to Him. Luke 20:38
