Part 19 - Rango - Beans-Israel meets Rango-Beast

Beginning way back in May of 1991, the Lord began to open to me insight relating to a particular series of events that, even to the present day, remains hidden from most, as it must be. The Lord assures the success of His plans and cloaks behind the veil of secrecy what treasures must be secured, so I have no reservation about posting plainly what is revealed, shouting from the rooftops, if you will. Those appointed for it will hear as He opens the ear, and those not, simply, won't.

As documented in a three part series titled, "The Sign for the Bride," history will come to pivot about a long anticipated event.

Then that lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming;
2 Thessalonians 2:8

The man of lawlessness or iniquity ("anthropos anomia" or "anthropos hamartia") has many epithets, including "the beast."

The dragon who will empower the beast knows plenty about what is coming. Part of his deal is that a testimony about it must be presented in advance, and Rango is a prime example of how this is done. The key to being able to recognize dramatic modeling is familiarity with what's being modeled. Understanding what the Bible as an esoteric document says about coming events in both the "plain text" and coded levels explains the scene where Rango and Beans meet. The dream sequence leading up to Rango's entry into the world of Dirt can then be understood in that context, providing vivid confirmation. Rango illustrates what Bible prophecy declares by way of cryptic but nonetheless detailed clues.

Here's the scene where Rango and Beans meet. Rango had just spent the night sleeping in a drain pipe. He had been having a nightmarish dream. He was suddenly awakened when flushed out into the desert by a sudden flow of drainage water. Finding himself thirsty and in the midst of small pools of water, the chameleon scrambles around, unsuccessfully trying to drink some of the water before it dries up in the desert. He comes to grab hold of what turns out to be Beans' boot, looking up to see her pointing a shotgun in his face.

Beans: Get your slimy, webbed phalanges off my boots!
Rango: Oh! Uh...sorry!
Beans: I got a bead on you, stranger. So you get up real slow, 'less'n you want to spend the better part of the afternoon puttin' your face back together!
Rango: Ma'am, I don't.
Beans: Who are you?
Rango: I?
Beans: I'm askin' the questions here!
[poking her gun in his face] Our town is dried up. We're in the middle of a drought. Now someone's dumpin' water in the desert. Now, it's a puzzle of undeterminable size and dimension, but I intend to find out what role you're playin' in all this.
Rango: Role?
Beans: What are you involved in?
Rango: Oh! Well, I...I...I'm glad you asked. I've got two one acts, a mystery and a musical I've been gestating. I've got the words. I'm just kinda workin' on the melody right now. It's like a...
[humming a tune] This is - I think it's gonna be a western.
[He starts singing and dancing in a distinctive style."]
Beans: You ain't from around here, are you?

While the scene is superficially pretty comical, the tone becomes serious when you realize this is really a "Beans-Israel meets Rango-Beast" foreview. It's partial and distorted but there's high value stuff to be gleaned from it.

Here's an overview of the time pictured, based upon what the Lord has revealed to me from such as 2 Thessalonians 2, Genesis 45, Haggai 2, John 13 and 21 and Acts 12.

When the lawless one is revealed he will claim to be the messiah. Most of the world will be convinced, excepting a small number who knows he is actually the false messiah, the antichrist beast. A faction of Israel will question his claim, making inquiry into his real identity. Those testifying that the man is antichrist will be a Bride company of saints, and those sons of Israel seeking to identify the man will number 144,000. The crucial dynamic involves Israel correctly identifying the messiah. As they become convinced the man just revealed is a counterfeit they will perceive with envy how the persecuted Bride has what Israel should, by all rights, have had in relationship with the God of their Fathers, indeed, their own God. With the counterfeit convincingly exposed, the God of that Bride company will be revealed to them as their own, with Y'shua revealing Himself and disclosing his identity as the one their forefathers had pierced by proxy as he hung on a tree. When the 144,000 sons of Israel recognize Y'shua as their God, the Bride Theft is triggered. This breaking off of the wild branch and grafting of the natural into the olive root (Romans 11) is a big deal. To casually call it a big deal is really to understate it. This is still hidden stuff because it's that big of a deal.

So, Rango's emerging into the world of Dirt and Beans' subsequently meeting him is big. The attention given the matter of Beans seeking to understand the chameleon's identity and role in what she witnessed is of great import, speaking to us of the Dragon's awareness of what's coming. This provides us with a dramatized illustration of a version he sees and promotes. There is value for us in this, so I'll interpret what I see.

When Rango says, "... I've been gestating," it suggests interpreting how the chameleon had just been flushed out of the drainage pipe as a baby from the birth canal, head first. Gestate: To carry within the uterus from conception to delivery. When a mother's water breaks, the baby is going to be delivered! The chameleon then crawls around on his hands and knees making noises like a baby. The Rango-Beast is born into the world!

And the dragon stood on the sand of the seashore. Then I saw a beast coming up out of the sea...
Revelation 13:1a

We see the chameleon in a watery puddle as the sea, with Beans describing him as having "slimy, webbed phalanges," like some kind of sea beast. Then we see him standing up, on dry sand. No kidding.

The revelation of the lawless one will be as one being birthed out of a watery womb. The event is notably a baptism, which is about revealing, revealing identity. To baptize is in the biblical Greek, baptizo, literally "to dip." It involves immersion in water then a bringing back out. It's a death and resurrection symbol with submersion equating to death and coming up out onto dry ground, to life. As now having entered "his own story," the baptized chameleon has a new life and is acquiring a new identity.

Worthy of note, the amniotic fluid and baptismal water of the scene was unclean waste water flowing from Las Vegas, Sin City. This chameleon is not a clean beast.

Chameleons are unclean beasts, reptiles. They are related to serpents. (Some believe the antichrist will be of the tribe of Dan, about whom it was prophesied in Genesis 49, "Dan shall be a serpent in the way, a horned snake in the path...") Chameleons are also related to iguanas. The Beans character is a Desert Iguana. Ahhhh. Relatives. Rango pictures a hybrid serpent version of a Jewish Messiah that compares to how the Beast type Judas (Judah) Iscariot was related to the King of Judah.

When the Beast is revealed, the 144,000 sons of Israel will seek to discover who he really is. As I already pointed out, this is a crucial dynamic! In a biblical type, it's presented in John 13 in this way.

21) When Jesus had said this, He became troubled in spirit, and testified and said, “Truly, truly, I say to you, that one of you will betray Me.”
22) The disciples began looking at one another, at a loss to know of which one He was speaking.
23) There was reclining on Jesus’ bosom one of His disciples, whom Jesus loved. 24 So Simon Peter gestured to him, and said to him, “Tell us who it is of whom He is speaking.”
25) He, leaning back thus on Jesus’ bosom, said to Him, “Lord, who is it?”
26) Jesus then answered, “That is the one for whom I shall dip the morsel and give it to him.” So when He had dipped the morsel, He took and gave it to Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot.
27) After the morsel, Satan then entered into him. Therefore Jesus said to him, “What you do, do quickly.”
28) Now no one of those reclining at the table knew for what purpose He had said this to him.
29) For some were supposing, because Judas had the money box, that Jesus was saying to him, “Buy the things we have need of for the feast”; or else, that he should give something to the poor.
30) So after receiving the morsel he went out immediately; and it was night.
John 13:21-30

The "one of His disciples, whom Jesus loved" was by name, John. He prophetically represents in this scenario the 144k sons of Israel, and Simon Peter, the Bride. The dipping of the morsel represents the baptism of the counterfeit bread of life, Judas, and the antitypical betrayer he represents. John-Israel (144k in particular) sought to learn the identity of the one who would betray Jesus.

I should note here that when the Bible presents a prophetic scenario, it's done with perfection. When the devil does so, it's not. His style of presentation is similar to the sovereign God's dramatic enactments but compares as a counterfeit does to a genuine. His are perverted to present lies wrapped in truths, versions crafted to accomplish wicked objectives. Rango is clearly the work of evil genius. The Bible is the work of a Sovereign God. One may be interpreted in light of the other, and wisdom dictates that the lesser should be interpreted in light of the greater.

During the featured scene from Rango, the chameleon then rummages through the "banquet table" cart and selects a Mason jar (Right, a Mason jar), eating ashes from it. Despite Beans' absurd remark to the contrary, the ashes must be identified as the remains of a dead person. When you compare this scene to the account of the "last supper" in John 13 and link Rango with Judas, you can associate the ashes Rango ate with the baptized "dead body" morsel Judas received.

Now, throughout the movie there are inquiries made about Rango's identity. Rango is regularly asked who he is by various residents of Dirt. He asks himself several times, "Who am I?" This is misinterpreted by viewers and reviewers as existential. It's apparent to me that this was the intent of the movie makers, to misdirect those who don't perceive the deep meaning so the subliminal working would be effectual. Why is his identity such a big deal? Because so much hinges upon being able to identity the Beast correctly, as a poser, a fake, a counterfeit messiah.

Pay close attention so you don't miss this. The question of Rango's identity is nowhere more important than in the scene where Beans meets Rango right after his "birth" and "baptism", because one of the things baptism is appointed for is to reveal the identity of the one baptized! (John 1:31-34) This explains why it is, in Rango, that Beans is so intent on discerning who he is, and further, why it is that the chameleon gives her the song and dance, both figuratively and literally! This matter of Beans-144k wanting to discern the identity of the chameleon-lawless one is the key dynamic at a critical juncture in the Lord's plan!

Beans' first question is, "Who are you?" Rango responds with, "Who am I?" He doesn't answer by identifying himself but just mirrors the question back. Beans says, "I'm askin' the questions here!" Immediately, emphasis is put on the importance of the question. The identity and the role he plays are tied together. The role really defines the identity of the lawless one, who is referenced in Biblical texts by broad range of epithets, descriptive references. It's not a name of itself that is really the issue of interest. Beans then asks, "What are you involved in?" The answers to these questions identify the lawless one, as may be seen in the following passage.

8) Then that lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming;
9) that is, the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders,
2 Thessalonians 2:8-9

That's what he is involved in, and his role. This allows his identity to be established! Baptism reveals.

So, Beans is not easily dissuaded from her inquiry into the chameleon's identity. Her intense inquiry prompts the chameleon to act like he misunderstands what she means by "role." He's not answering her question, and he won't. He does a little distraction and misdirection ploy and then breaks into a literal song and dance, what must be seen as some old-fashioned shucking and jiving. He sings, "Monkey's got a cracker..." Monkey? (definition 3), Cracker? Come on. Like he's the "monkey" and she's the gun or whip totin' "cracker."

The choice of Beans' peculiar dress and hair style featured throughout the movie serves to draw attention to the shuck and jive scene as one that is of special importance. She clearly resembles Scarlett O'Hara, the female lead in the film classic "Gone with the Wind." Her dress, hair, brooch and Southern accent - it's a fair match! The film's civil war era feature of white masters and black slaves makes the chameleon's overacted "Monkey has a cracker" song and dance all the more obviously a classic shuck and jive.

We see the diversionary tactics continuing even after Beans gets into the wagon to head back to town.

Beans: Today's Wednesday, and Wednesday's when we all get to it. So who are you really?
Rango: Well I'm a man of many epithets. There's my stage name, my pen name, my avatar. Had a pseudonym once but I had it legally changed.

[The Mariachi owl narrative closes the scene as they ride off towards town. The scene picks up again where Beans is about to drop Rango off. They are approaching the town but are far enough away where she won't be seen with him. Rango is still yakking away in his rapid-fire monologue.]
Rango: ... I had a CB handle. I'm actually one of the few men with a maiden name.
[Beans stops short of town, rolling her eyes. She drops him off.]

Did he ever disclose his identity? No. He rambled on, shuckin' 'n jivin' - continuing the "song and dance" routine. He goes to great extent to evade the questions. He dances and dances all around the name thing - up one side and down the other - but never provides a single one! Do you get the point being made? The lawless one will never disclose his identity. It must be spiritually discerned.

In the devil's Rango version, Beans does not figure it out. He does NOT want her to. However, knowing the biblical truth, while most of Israel won't figure it out yet, the 144k will, and through that baptism event and the lawless one's Judas-esque betrayal of Christ activity, the 144k will correctly identify the genuine messiah - and meet Him!

More to follow, Lord willing!
