Will the Hunger Games Be a Reality?
After reading Isaiah 47 in the Bible and seeing the Hunger Games, I came to the conclusion, this is a possible reality. Most Biblical researchers, scholars and Theologians all agree Isaiah is talking about America.
Let’s take a look at Isaiah 47:
The Fall of Babylon
1 “Go down, sit in the dust,
Virgin Daughter Babylon;
sit on the ground without a throne,
queen city of the Babylonians.[a]
No more will you be called
tender or delicate.
2 Take millstones and grind flour;
take off your veil.
Lift up your skirts, bare your legs,
and wade through the streams.
3 Your nakedness will be exposed
and your shame uncovered.
I will take vengeance;
I will spare no one.”
4 Our Redeemer—the LORD Almighty is his name—
is the Holy One of Israel.
5 “Sit in silence, go into darkness,
queen city of the Babylonians;
no more will you be called
queen of kingdoms.
6 I was angry with my people
and desecrated my inheritance;
I gave them into your hand,
and you showed them no mercy.
Even on the aged
you laid a very heavy yoke.
7 You said, ‘I am forever—
the eternal queen!’
But you did not consider these things
or reflect on what might happen.
8 “Now then, listen, you lover of pleasure,
lounging in your security
and saying to yourself,
‘I am, and there is none besides me.
I will never be a widow
or suffer the loss of children.’
9 Both of these will overtake you
in a moment, on a single day:
loss of children and widowhood.
They will come upon you in full measure,
in spite of your many sorceries
and all your potent spells.
10 You have trusted in your wickedness
and have said, ‘No one sees me.’
Your wisdom and knowledge mislead you
when you say to yourself,
‘I am, and there is none besides me.’
11 Disaster will come upon you,
and you will not know how to conjure it away.
A calamity will fall upon you
that you cannot ward off with a ransom;
a catastrophe you cannot foresee
will suddenly come upon you.
12 “Keep on, then, with your magic spells
and with your many sorceries,
which you have labored at since childhood.
Perhaps you will succeed,
perhaps you will cause terror.
13 All the counsel you have received has only worn you out!
Let your astrologers come forward,
those stargazers who make predictions month by month,
let them save you from what is coming upon you.
14 Surely they are like stubble;
the fire will burn them up.
They cannot even save themselves
from the power of the flame.
These are not coals for warmth;
this is not a fire to sit by.
15 That is all they are to you—
these you have dealt with
and labored with since childhood.
All of them go on in their error;
there is not one that can save you.
I hope you made it through all of the reading! As you can see nobody threatens better than God! It was a very comprehensive analysis of: what, where, and why without the when. As you can see according to the Bible, America has played itself out of the grace of God.
So how is this related to the “Hunger Games?” Well, if you see the movie it is quite obvious. Toto we are not in Kansas, anymore! Society has broken down more to the point of the “have mores” and “have nothings.” There will be pockets of civilizations after the fall of America according to the Bible.
Then I heard what sounded like a voice among the four living creatures, saying, “A quart of wheat for a day’s wages, and three quarts of barley for a day’s wages, and do not damage the oil and the wine!”
Apparently there is going to be trading and commerce; but, at exorbitant prices. A quart of wheat for a day’s wages? The “Hunger Games” food shortage was reflective of this Scripture. I try not to be enamored with the trappings of the actors in the movie and as a result I can focus on the relationship to a potential prophecy match.
I hope I am wrong about this one but you have to admit this is kind of similar?
