Review: 7th Street Theater (Episode: Closed)
Tragedy and sorrow are unfortunately a part of this life. I thank our Heavenly Father for the peace He gives us when we seek Him with all our heart, and the hope we have in eternal life, when Jesus Christ returns. Amen.
If you are reading this on the Sabbath, then I would like to wish you a Sabbath filled with God’s peace and joy for the amazing Creator we have! Nehemiah 8:10 says, the joy of the Lord is your strength.
This week’s program review is another episode from the 7th Street Theater series. The episode is called, Closed. I have done reviews on several 7th Street Theater episodes - check out our podcast or blog for the episode names.
7th Street Theater is a drama series about five Christian actors who perform a weekly stage show for their community. There are 3 Seasons in the series and a total of 64 episodes. All of these episodes are on their YouTube channel as well as on the Christian Movies website (www.christianmovies.com). The series is produced by Dave Christiano. The episode, Closed, is split into four parts.
A new theater opens up on 4th Avenue and affects ticket sales at the 7th Street Theater. It looks as if the theater will close and the cast members start to prepare for the worst.
There are several plays within this episode, however the main theme is based around the threat of the theater closing. The actors and actresses are thrown into an uncertain situation about losing their jobs that motivate their faith as well as practical matters, such as paying their bills.
We see the cast asking God why it’s all happening and their acknowledgement of the spiritual war we are in.
We also see how important consistent prayer is for our faith and how God’s promises through His word are so important to hang onto during all seasons.
The whole episode reminds me of Psalm 46
God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear, Even though the earth be removed, And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
3 Though its waters roar and be troubled, Though the mountains shake with its swelling. Selah
4 There is a river whose streams shall make glad the city of God, The holy place of the tabernacle of the Most High.
5 God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved; God shall help her, just at the break of dawn.
6 The nations raged, the kingdoms were moved; He uttered His voice, the earth melted.
7 The Lord of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah
8 Come, behold the works of the Lord, Who has made desolations in the earth.
9 He makes wars cease to the end of the earth; He breaks the bow and cuts the spear in two; He burns the chariot in the fire.
10 Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!
11 The Lord of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah
Thank you for reading this review. Until next time - peace be with you.
