TARZAN STORY: FAILURE TO RECOGNIZE


Johnny Weissmuller, the champion Olympic swimmer who donned the role of Tarzan the Ape Man in the silver screen with as much aplomb in 1930s and 40s as he dominated the Olympic swimming lanes in 1920s, had "a close encounter of a different kind" with the pro-Fidel Castro's soldiers in late 1950s.


When the Cuban uprising was reaching its peak, he and his golf mates (on a recreational tour to Cuba) in Havana's suburbs were surrounded by gun-toting Cuban revolutionaries who, on mistaking them for pro-regime supporters, were intent on kidnapping them. When all his pleadings to convince them that he was a harmless movie star on a normal tour (with no political links) failed, he came up with a spectacular Tarzan act. Thumping his chest in a typical Tarzan style, he gave out a blood curdling yell "KREEGAH TARZAN BUNDALO", so much so that the highly impressed pro-Castro's men immediately curtsied with the words "Welcome Tarzan, welcome to Cuba," and escorted him and his friends to a safer area.


Doesn't this story in a small way mirror the anguish of our own Lord? People are failing to identify the times we are living in, even though He is "screaming to us all" through prophetical Scriptures. Each one of them (prophecies) is getting fulfilled in FULL PUBLIC GLARE; however residents of this World do not seem to be noticing!
