Star Wars
THE FORCE
and
The Ten Commandments

   The Star Wars movies have made famous 'the force'. We hear people saying "May the force be with you."  This sounds very much like "May God be with you." But 'the force' is not God but is mentioned in the Bible. The 'the force' is something you can have and something you can use. The force is used against Christian America by Christ's enemies. You can use 'the force' for both good or evil.

Only George Lucas would know if the speculative contents of this page is correct. The reader can only think for himself and decide for himself if the following makes sense.

Questions Answered

What is 'the force'?

   How can you use the force?

      What is 'the power of the dark side'?

         What then is the 'light' side of the force?

            Do you have 'the force'? If not, how can you obtain it?

               Can you become a JEDI?

               And finally, what in the world does all this have to do with
               THE TEN COMMANDMENTS?

In addition to the movies, there are two good Star Wars computer games. Like the movie, both Rebellion and Tie Fighter contain Bible references.

                         

It is generally agreed that there are many Bible references in the Star Wars movies and you can search the internet for more information.

In Tie Fighter the First Commandment is rewritten.

Serve the emperor above all others.* I an the Lord your God. You shall have no other Gods before me.

 *In Tie Fighter you are loyal to the Empire whereas in the companion computer game X-Wing you are loyal to the Rebellion.

Here is an interesting part of the script found in Tie Fighter.

Battle Nine - Mission 6

Know that your Emperor watches over you.* Many are called to serve the Emperor, but only the most skillful warriors are chosen** for such dangerous assignments. Serve the Emperor well and you will reap great rewards!

* Christians believe "that God watches over you." And in fact, in Star Wars Princess Lea said, 'he's so old he's ancient." In the book of Daniel you will find this: 

Daniel 7:9 I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire.

Daniel 7:13 I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him.

Daniel 7:22 Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom.

**Matthew 20:16 So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen.

Matthew 22:14 For many are called, but few are chosen.

Star Wars Rebellion

In the Star Wars computer game Rebellion, in the fight between good and evil, you deal with and manage thirty characters. These characters have different talents and abilities.

The Empire believes the Rebel Alliance is an evil bunch of criminals whereas the Rebel Alliance views the Galactic Empire as the sum of all evil. This is much like today's liberal Left and the Conservative Right. Both view the other as evil.

Both Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader have 'the force'. Vader is loyal to 'the dark side'.

In the computer game when Darth Vader comes into the presence of certain characters he might report. "I have detected that Commander Needa has the ability to use the force."

Jedi Training

At that point you can send Vader and Needa on a mission called Jedi Training. In the game one who already has the force can detect it in others. That other person may not be able to detect or be aware of it in himself.

The Force is The Holy Spirit

Cries of "Heretic" and "wacko" must fill the air at this point. but 'stay tuned' and put your 'thinking cap' on.

Compare

Luke 4:1 And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness, Luke 4:1And Jesus being full of the Force returned from Jordan, and was led by the Force into the wilderness,
Acts 5:32 And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him. Acts 5:32 And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Force, whom God hath given to them that obey him.

Question

Answer

Can you have the Holy Spirit before baptism? Acts 10:47 Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we?

Assuming that 'The Force' is the Holy Spirit, does, or can The Force come before Baptism? (Yes.) In this verse The Force / Holy Spirit was received before Baptism.

Also note in Acts 10:47 that one having 'the force' can detect it in others. "...which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we?" If they could not detect it, how could they have known?

So, may the Force be with you, is not, "May God be with you" but rather, "May the Holy Spirit be with you."

"The Force is with you young Skywalker is, "You have the Holy Spirit."

Can a person with The Force (Holy Spirit) make it available to another or can he only train one who already possesses it? (Jedi Training?)

Acts 8:15-17 Who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost:

16 (For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.)

17 Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost.

And when you receive the Holy Ghost, do you you then need training as with The Force in Jedi Training? Both the movie and the computer game say so.

Yodha trained Luke. Note that YHWH if pronounced letter by letter in Hebrew it is Yod Ha Wa Ha. Just wondering, is Yoda's last name Waha or is Yodha short for Yoddawaha? (YHWH = YAHWEH and is one or the Bible's name for God.)

Acts 8:18 And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles' hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money,  
Acts 8:19 Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost. The Holy Ghost is a power.
Acts 8:20 But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money. Can the Holy Spirit / The Force be purchased with money? No, because it is 'purchased' with obedience.

Acts 5:32 And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also (the Force), whom God hath given to them that obey him.

Just as you freely give God your obedience, He freely gives you 'The Force'.

Acts 8:21 Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right in the sight of God Perhaps Simon would have misused this power and become a Dark Jedi?

How do they use the dark side of the force for evil?
