Revelation13.net: The movie "Star Wars" Movies --
Darth Vader as a type of Antichrist, the Book of
Revelation's evil dictator -- The Biblical prophecy theme
of "Star Wars"
The "Star Wars" movies have a theme
analagous to the Book of Revelation and the
Antichrist / evil dictator idea. "Darth
Vader" is similar to the Antichrist, a "Prince of
Darkness" in Revelation 13. The "Star Wars" movies may
represent the journey humanity is going through in our
time. The "Star Wars" movies:
"Episode I, The Phantom Menace" (1999)
"Episode II, Attack of the Clone" (2002)
"Episode III, Revenge of the Sith" (2005)
"Episode IV, Star Wars, A New Hope" (the first movie)
"Episode V, The Empire Strikes Back"
"Episode VI, Return of the Jedi"
In 1999, there was the first of the new "Star Wars"
"Star Wars Episode 1 -- The Phantom Menace", a prequel with
the young Darth Vader, Anakin Skywalker, as a boy.
Interestingly, 1999 has 666 upside down, and this was the
year of this new "Star Wars" movie. Anakin Skywalker is a boy who is a slave to a junkdealer who is a type of "devil" with wings and hoofs, which reminded me of the "New Jersey Devil", a mythical creature that has been seen in the past in New Jersey. Anakin has a tremendously strong level of The Force, and is apparently born by "immaculate conception" to his mother, not having a father. Anakin turns out to bring hope in the movie to the forces for good, helping the Jedi, and is the hero of the movie. Anakin it seems will fullfill the prophecy of one who will bring balance to The Force. All of this is consistent with Darth Vader being a type of Antichrist, since the Antichrist comes as an angel of light, bringing hope to those who are without hope. The last of the Star Wars prequels, "Star Wars III - Revenge of the Sith" is a very dark movie, and shows how Anakin went over to the Dark Side to become Darth Vader.
But one interesting theme I have noticed with the "Star Wars" movies is the theme of the Antichrist, the evil dictator of the Bible's Book of Revelation. Anakin Skywalker / Darth Vader is clearly a type of Antichrist. Let me first explain what I mean by the Antichrist.
The Bible's last chapter, the Book of
Revelation, includes a description of disastrous events to occur during a seven year time period in the future, including weather changes, wars,
economic problems, new diseases, and the rise to power of a world dictator, the Antichrist, who at first will bring hope to mankind and will appear to be the saviour of mankind. The Antichrist will bring the world to a great war called Armageddon, however, which clearly is a nuclear war. Many people believe we entered this time period as we reached year 2000, so the Antichrist may appear soon (I think he is
Russia's Prime Minister Putin).
The Antichrist is a Satanic imitation of Christ, the son of Satan himself, and is somehow connected to the number 666. Note that 1999 has 666 upside down, and 1998=666x3.
In "The Phantom Menace", Anakin Skywalker, the young Darth Vader, is a slave boy living on the planet Tatooine where Queen Amidala's Royale Starship had landed for repairs, with two Jedi Knights on the ship, Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi. The two Jedi Knights go off in search of repair parts, and enter the junk shop of a Toydarian named Watto, a very nasty creature with hoofs and short wings, that reminds me of the "New Jersey Devil", a scary creature that has occasionally been seen in the past in New Jersey. (Biblcal theme-- the young Antichrist, Anakin Skywalker / Darth Vader, is a slave to the devil himself, this creature Watto). The boy assists the Jedi Knights by winning a race and therefore winning the parts the Jedi need to fix the starship. Later the boy saves them again when war comes, as he pilots a space fighter ship. He is the hero of the movie, bringing hope to those who are without hope. And the boy was born by "immaculate conception" -- having no father -- to his slave mother (again, imitating the birth of Christ). The boy is found by one of the Jedi Knights to have a tremendously high level of "The Force", so at the end of the movie he has been chosen to be trained as a Jedi Knight. Of course, in later movies the boy has grown up to be Darth Vader, and now is a master of the dark side of the force, an evil Prince of Darkness on the idea of the Antichrist. Note that the keyboard on the chest of Darth Vader is sort of an evil imitation of the breastplate with precious stones worn by Aaron in Exodus in the Bible's old testament. This implies that Darth Vader is sort of an evil High Priest. Also, consider that the hero of the later movies, Luke Skywalker, -- Luke is a Biblical New Testament name, being the name of one of the New Testament books. So Luke Skywalker is a type of Christ who defeats the evil Antichrist, Darth Vader. so, you see the theme of the Antichrist with Anakin Skywalker / Darth Vader, one who works miracles and brings hope as a boy, but as an adult he goes over to the dark side, becoming a Prince of Darkness.
And in "The Phantom Menace" this frog-like underwater creature Jar-Jar helps the Jedi and the queen win the war, raising an army; in the Book of Revelation 16:13 (King James version) the Antichrist sends out "unclean spirits like frogs" to the kings of the earth, to cause them to raise armies for the battle of Armageddon. So the "frog" theme again has Biblical symbolism. And there also is a "prophecy" theme in "The "Phantom Menace"-- it is believed by some in the movie that the boy could be the one who will fullfill the prophecy of one who brings balance to The Force -- so a Prophecy, as Revelation 13 is a prophecy of the coming of the Antichrist.
