Part 36 - Rango - The Bride is the Hope of Salvation

I closed Part 35 with a brief illustration of the Bride Theft from Rango. I do expect to be returning to the opening sequence but first I'm going to expand on that Bride Theft scenario to focus on related elements, like how those left behind are presented who are particularly of the church. If you're not privy to The Bride Theft scenario in the sense that the Lord Himself has opened it to you, these next posts may help or inspire you to get to that place.

A large part of why I'm so convinced of what I know about the Bride Theft and related events is how it came to me, through the very convincing evidence of dramatic modeling. The Lord brought this revelation to me first through scriptural passages like Genesis 45, Acts 12, Haggai 2 and John 21, with characters playing prophetic roles. He's not the only one who uses dramatic models though. Case in point: Rango. When we find such as these kinds of allegorical enactments of historical and prophetic scenarios they should be received as messages that are the more valuable, as specially sent through high-level encryption. If you've been granted a hearing ear - listen up!

What I refer to as the Bride Theft doesn't represent some unique interpretation of the pre-trib rapture (PTR). That popular doctrine is a collection of truths, half truths and lies. The Bride Theft describes a harvest event that shares some elements with the PTR but they should not be equated. Some of you will fail to grab hold of what I'm teaching here because you will try to use rapture doctrine and language as the basis of some refinement process. Would you also use the Eucharist language from Romish Mass to teach about the Lord Y'shua? You see, Babylon will not be fixed. Her doctrines and practices can not be reformed or refined. Let it go. Come out from her. The pre-trib rapture is a doctrine of Babylon. I was weaned on it, and when the Lord took me in as a student at His feet, believe me when I tell you I had plenty of unlearning to do. Humility is required. The Lord is not going to be getting with your program or mine. I do hope we catch on to that soon, if we haven't yet. There is a prize that is worth every effort!

So, of the elements in Rango's rapture scenario.... HEY! No. I'm just testing you. It's not a rapture scenario but a barley harvest scenario, a dramatic modeling of events during a coming Chag HaMatzot, or Feast of Unleavened Bread. Rango signals this season with an Ash Wednesday segue.

Ash Wednesday points to Easter Sunday as the other end point of Lent, and the pagan Romish Easter Sunday occurs near to the Feast of note. The shift to the "Easter Sunday" resurrection season is evidenced in Rango's abrupt transition from the hydration ceremony at the spigot to the water reserve at the Bank, the scene of the coming crime.

Beans interrupted Mayor John at the “chapel of the holy spigot.” Hold it! Hold it! Now this whole thing stinks three ways to Sunday. First the bank's run dry and now this here spigot! Ash Wednesday segue to Easter Sunday. Panic ensued as the Dirtonians caught on to the beans spilled by Beans about the critical water reserves at the bank. The scene cuts from the spigot to a run on the bank. The focus shifts from hope in the spigot flow to their last hope in the bank's reserve.

From the scene of the run on the bank, the focus is on guarding the critical reserve and then the failure of that plan as it is stolen, and then upon securing it's return. It's all about the water reserve.

Rango: As long as we've got water, we've got ourselves a town.
Mayor John: Sheriff Rango is right! As long as we have this water we have some hope.

The town's response to the theft of the reserve isn't rational because they should have simply left town, given the best case scenario of only five days of water left. What you should see in this is that it really is all about the Bride.

The hope of salvation truly is the Bride. In Rango's model, the water was kept in the bank vault, the most secure place where you keep valuables for protection. The bride is associated with fine gold, as in Psalm 45:9 and 13. That's valuable. This is not to say that it isn't about the Bridegroom Y'shua, because He is always at the center of it, but this phase of the plan depends upon His essential work in the agency of His Bride. If you grasp the prophetic meaning of Benjamin in Genesis 45 and know why he had to be brought before Joseph by his brothers, you may also understand the Bride's key role at the present time in the dynamic of Romans 11:13-15. The Bride's interaction with 144,000 sons of Israel (Revelation 7:4-8) is crucial, but with regard to the church, the wheat harvest depends upon the barley-Bride crop being plowed under to condition the soil and make the good ground for that hundred-fold increase (Luke 8:8,15) seen in the harvest of a “great multitude” in Revelation 7:9-17.

The vault of the Bank of Dirt as the scene of the crime has an symbolic meaning, which ties in to the meaning of the prospecting permit, the role of the bank clerk, and helps explain why the bank manager was later found drowned in the desert.

The bank building represents the church, the holy temple and house of God, the heavenly and invisible body of Christ. This is illustrated in Rango as the virtue of the Bank of Dirt is extolled by Rango ("the finest financial institution this side of the Missouri") and a picture of it appears with the audio of an angelic choir signaling something worthy of worship, heavenly, divine. It resembles a Greek Temple, as a great many banks do. (Hint- here is the reason why!) This one has a subtle Sun Eye located centrally, appropriately pictured as a Sun cult institution where the worship of mammon occurs alongside the worship of the Sun god. Like the “Holy Roman Church.” The Bride is found inside the Body of Christ as a subset of that corporate body, the valuables in the vault of the bank. She is as the precious refined gold of the Bank of Dirt, the last hope reserve water, the very hope of salvation for red dirt Adam-kind. When the water is stolen out of the bank vault, the Bride is stolen out of the temple, out of the house of God by her Bridegroom Thief, Y'shua!

Now, given that identification, we have the context for interpreting the role of Rango as the guardian of the bank's precious water reserve, and that of the bank clerk and its manager.

Rango is the authority appointed over the bank and its assets as a guardian. He is what this passage refers to as the head of the house, the house of God.

42) “Therefore be on the alert, for you do not know which day your Lord is coming.
43) But be sure of this, that if the head of the house had known at what time of the night the thief was coming, he would have been on the alert and would not have allowed his house to be broken into.
44) For this reason you also must be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour when you do not think He will.
Matthew 24:42-44

The thief of verse 43 is the Lord of verse 42 and the Son of Man of verse 44. From this passage, observe how the time when this thief visits may not be known by the head of the house, even if published right out into the public domain. He will not know when, will not be alert, and his house, as he considers it, will be broken into.

The head of the house is played by Rango as a classic dude, a strutting comic dandy, a buffoon who is less perceptive than a blindfolded mole. He's like a fancy TV evangelist, the oft parodied public face of the church.

This is the set-up for the theft, and this post is preparation for the next, Lord willing!
