I have watched all of Lost and am absolutely riveted by last night’s episode. I have never, ever really tried to understand Lost but for some reason, last night kicked my theorizing into high gear. I have a little theory that I’m just playing out. This post is more for me to write it all down and possibly get some of you people to shoot me down really fast or help it along. Don’t make fun…lost has me lost. I’ll admit it. But, I don’t know. I have heard rumblings of this theory although I haven’t read any.
Could it be that the MiB is actually God? A conversation last night between Richard and MiB had me thinking…
First when he goes to the ship the smoke monster comes and takes his wife and then the MiB says that he’s a friend and he will set him free if he says that he loves him and will do anything he asks.
Such wicked people are detestable to the Lord, but he offers his friendship to the godly. Proverbs 3:32 (NLT)
It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. Galatans 5:1
If you love me, you will obey what I command. John 14:5
He also still insists the “he” has her.
When they talk again right before he goes to meet Jac0b he tells him to kill the devil (Jac0b) and he says:
Richard: But how do I kill him, he is black smoke?
MiB: I am.
Richard goes on to talk about him taking his wife and MiB insists that “he” has her and he doesn’t need to worry about him. We are led to believe in the conversation that MiB is the smoke monster but what if MiB was saying you can do it because I AM. As in God who said “I AM”.
God said to Moses, “I am who I am . [a] This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I AM has sent me to you.’ ” Exodus 3:14
As for him being trapped could it be that the time on the island is similar to where God says Satan rules the earth now and He is waiting to make all things new (Revelation stuff).
Also, MiB believing that we have a sinful nature would again align with the Bible.
The heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked, who can know it?
Maybe Jac0b/Satan is trying to prove God wrong.
Also, Jac0b is always the one attributed to bringing people to the island and making plans. Isn’t Satan known to be the ultimate schemer?
This theory of course opens up a can of worms that I can’t quite get to the bottom of. This would mean that God has now taken the form of Locke. Is he gathering his Army to do battle against Satan at Armaggedon? The last episode title is “The End”. That could certainly support this theory.
But what does it mean that Jac0b died? Is he now inhabiting Sayid perhaps? Richard seems to realize that Jac0b was full of crap and MiB knows what he’s talking about. Further proof that MiB could be God because he says it’s never too late to change your mind. Brings to mind the thief on the cross with Christ and he calls Him Lord and Jesus tells him he will see him in paradise that day.
I don’t know. My brain is about to explode.
Does this have a chance at all??
