Growing up as a kid, I have been an avid fan of Marvel and DC Comics and even their TV series. Every night and day, I would spend time to watch it and make sure that I watch the next episodes.
Wonder Woman was recently released and since I am a DC fan, just like when I was a kid, I would line up to the cinema section, get a ticket and watch it on big screen.
I don’t see any reason why not watch it, for me, for as long as I view it for pure entertainment, I don’t see anything wrong with it.
Now, moving forward, while watching Wonder Woman I noticed the biblical significance of what was hiddenly portrayed in the movie. Looking at her costume, I immediately thought of Ephesian 6: 10-18 which depicts the full armor of God and it says:
“A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.
Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm. Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth and the body armor of God’s righteousness.
For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared.
In addition to all of these, hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil.
and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere.”
Ephesians 6:10-18 NLT
Basically, what Ephesians’ wants us to know are these:
1. Belt of truth
2. Breastplate of righteousness
3. Shield of faith
4. Helmet of salvation
5. Sword of Spirit
6. Gospel of peace
How do you walk in peace is by walking in love and in obedience to God’s word.
At the end of the movie, it portrayed that when you believe in Love that’s where the power will manifest. In the bible, love depicted Jesus. Therefore, God is love. When you believe in Love you become powerful that no weapon can form against you.
The movie may look like it’s in the world because it says in the natural that we can only be saved by a heroine but the deeper meaning of the movie is far beyond recognition in the natural. I was able to see the hidden meaning of the movie and hope it does to you, too!
