Part 51 - Rango - Black Stones Rising

Black and hovering stones have been the occasional subjects of this blog recently. Rango features the rising and hovering gravel of the chameleon's terrarium in the scene where he's catapulted out of the rear window of the family wagon. I began covering this scene in Part 42, exploring several facets that provide us with amazing insights into a fall to earth from a heavenly realm. I've addressed elements of the scene that spill the beans on dimensional portal technologies, making reference to Bible passages and to other movies that, like Rango, employ crystal, cube, and rainbow symbolism. This post continues that line as the meaning of the rising and hovering black stones is explored.

If this post is your first exposure to the Rango series you might already think I'm a lunatic. Let me encourage you to start at Part 1. You'll quickly catch on to the fact that Rango doesn't “do” random. Even the terrarium gravel is signaling something of significance!

You can watch the scene I'm describing and see the gravel float in this clip on YouTube, specifically at 5:10-5:20 in. [video] First 14 Minutes Of Rango If you're a Netflix subscriber, you can watch the entire Rango movie online now.

Black stones are featured heavily in Knowing (2009), starring Nicolas Cage. The movie is worthy of a series of posts for it's vast signaling of the Adversary's plan. The stones are given to certain special people by mysterious whispering beings. Many of the stones rise and hover in a key scene near the end of the movie while alien rockets ascend, transporting selected children, male and female, to planets symbolic of Eden. These stones are related to Rango's gravel. OK. I know what you're thinking. Why would Nicolas Cage star in a movie with esoteric symbols, right? :)

If you understand about the two trees in the Garden of Eden, how they represent two family trees that populate the earth, these can be seen also as messianic lines and as rocks or stones.

The God of Israel said, the Rock of Israel spoke to me, ‘He who rules over men righteously, who rules in the fear of God,
2 Samuel 23:3

and all drank the same spiritual drink, for they were drinking from a spiritual rock which followed them; and the rock was Christ.
1 Corinthians 10:4

42 Jesus said to them, “Did you never read in the Scriptures, ‘THE STONE WHICH THE BUILDERS REJECTED, THIS BECAME THE CHIEF CORNER stone; THIS CAME ABOUT FROM THE LORD, AND IT IS MARVELOUS IN OUR EYES’? 43 Therefore I say to you, the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people, producing the fruit of it. 44 And he who falls on this stone will be broken to pieces; but on whomever it falls, it will scatter him like dust.”
Matthew 21:42-44

Daniel gave testimony about such a stone or rock, which falls on the feet of a body that will be carried away as chaff, interpreting Nebuchadnezzar's famous dream. This stone is the kingdom of the King of kings HaMashiach that will never be destroyed.

31 You, O king, were looking and behold, there was a single great statue; that statue, which was large and of extraordinary splendor, was standing in front of you, and its appearance was awesome. 32 The head of that statue was made of fine gold, its breast and its arms of silver, its belly and its thighs of bronze, 33 its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of clay. 34 You continued looking until a stone was cut out without hands, and it struck the statue on its feet of iron and clay and crushed them. 35 Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver and the gold were crushed all at the same time and became like chaff from the summer threshing floors; and the wind carried them away so that not a trace of them was found. But the stone that struck the statue became a great mountain and filled the whole earth.
44 In the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which will never be destroyed, and that kingdom will not be left for another people; it will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms, but it will itself endure forever. 45 Inasmuch as you saw that a stone was cut out of the mountain without hands and that it crushed the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver and the gold, the great God has made known to the king what will take place in the future; so the dream is true and its interpretation is trustworthy
Daniel 2:31-35, 44-45

A stone or rock is HaMashiach, God, yet there are other rocks worshiped and another messianic rock.

30 How could one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight, unless their Rock had sold them, and the LORD had given them up? 31 “Indeed their rock is not like our Rock, even our enemies themselves judge this.
Deuteronomy 32:30-31

On the Temple Mount in Jerusalem is what's called the foundation stone, an object considered holy by mainstream practitioners of each of the Abrahamic faiths. This is the stone over which the Dome of the Rock is built, the, Masjid Qubbat As-Sakhrah. The Zohar and other writings have much to say about a foundation stone at the Temple Mount. I believe David Flynn was right about his locating the center of time and space on the mount some distance from the Dome of the Rock. What is identified today as the foundation stone is an important symbol, but one that, to me, seems very likely to be connected with the Antichrist Beast. As it is written, “their rock is not like our Rock.”

Rango's gravel is rock or stone but instead of one big foundation stone it's a collection of small stones. Each stone is a “chip off the ol' block,” figuratively, of the same substance as their heritage rock, or messianic god. These black stones are dead stones in contrast to the living stones of the genuine.

4 And coming to Him as to a living stone which has been rejected by men, but is choice and precious in the sight of God, 5 you also, as living stones, are being built up as a spiritual house for a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 6 For this is contained in Scripture: “BEHOLD, I LAY IN ZION A CHOICE STONE, A PRECIOUS CORNER stone, AND HE WHO BELIEVES IN HIM WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.” 7 This precious value, then, is for you who believe; but for those who disbelieve, “THE STONE WHICH THE BUILDERS REJECTED, THIS BECAME THE VERY CORNER stone,” 8 and, “A STONE OF STUMBLING AND A ROCK OF OFFENSE”; for they stumble because they are disobedient to the word, and to this [doom] they were also appointed. 9 But you are A CHOSEN RACE, A royal PRIESTHOOD, A HOLY NATION, A PEOPLE FOR God’s OWN POSSESSION, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; 10 for you once were NOT A PEOPLE, but now you are THE PEOPLE OF GOD; you had NOT RECEIVED MERCY, but now you have RECEIVED MERCY.
1 Peter 2:4-10

The black stones are disobedient to the word, even appointed to stumble in disobedience. They aren't God's but the possession of another rock, and who will not receive mercy. As a collective, they form the temple represented in the stones of the ubiquitous pyramid, pictured with the hovering capstone with the eye illuminating with the dark light. (Luke 11:33-36) The hovering stones represent those who rise to a state between heaven and earth as demi-gods, hybrid god-men. The black stones are the dark star children, even including those who will take the mark of the Beast. Like the hovering illumined capstone head, so is the body, the collective members, living stones but with a zombie resurrection kind of life.

The stones ascend and hover in Rango during the scene where the chameleon falls to earth from heaven. The ice cube in the umbrella drink and the water that, with the ice, forms an arch witnesses to the stargate technology that facilitates the passage into our realm. The ascending and hovering gravel in the scene models those who are associated with the god who falls to earth, with their related ascension/decension through the dimensional portal in yet one more dramatization of things I've presented in the Rango series more than a time or two. If it doesn't seem familiar, you may want to give the series some review.

There's more here on the theme, and, Lord willing, more will follow!
