A new show is going to hit The CW on Friday (Apr 17) evening at 9/8c. It's called The Messengers, and looks interesting. The story is inspired by, not based on, but inspired by, (and there is a difference) the Revelation.
A meteorite hits earth, and a group of strangers are suddenly banded together to play a very special role in the aftermath of that crash. The Angels of the Apocalypse, as they come to be called, team up to do battle with the devil.
We all make choices, but we're not always lucky enough to recognize that our choices are being influenced by forces for good and for evil. We don't live in a cartoon world where a little angel sits on one shoulder while a demon sits on the other, but the same sort of thing happens to us. On the one hand we're encouraged to do what is right, and on the other, we're tempted to sin.
God calls us to use our gifts for good, but there are so many distractions, and Satan, the Father of Lies, the great deceiver, the tempter is always on hand trying to manipulate the situation in his favor.
You might remember Diogo Morgado, the actor who played Jesus in the Miniseries THE BIBLE. He's still around, but this time Morgado plays the Devil.
