The Real Deal

Vampires. Werewolves. Zombies. Witches and sorcerers. These kinds of characters seem to fill the most popular books and movies, especially around Halloween. Have you ever stopped to wonder why? What is it that’s so appealing to so many people about characters like this?

I believe that the reason for the mega popularity of such characters in series of books and movies today is because deep down, we all know that there’s more to this life than we can see. If we were honest, few of us could actually say we truly believe that nothing exists other than what we can hear, see, and feel. We know there’s something supernatural out there, and we long to experience its power. We don’t always want to accept God and His power as the answer, so we try to get a taste of the supernatural power we  long to experience by getting caught up in stories that are full of these kinds of characters.

When Jesus was on this earth, He went about doing miracles – turning water into wine, bringing the dead to life, multiplying food, and healing the sick. The supernatural power of God was constantly flowing through Him. God’s power is still there, and He wants to use it in our lives to help us break free from every chain that holds us captive. If you ask Him, He will do this for you! You’ll get to experience the real deal, and you’ll realize that He is far better than any werewolf, zombie, or vampire!




I love reading, writing, photography, and music. I started Generation Arise as a way to encourage young people to arise and shine forth the light of God!
