Film Star Jim Caviezel: “God Spoke to me”…While Filming Crucifixion Scene, Hears God say “They don’t love me. There are very few.”

Film star Jim Caviezel said he accepts parts in films he believes will “bring the most souls to Christ” ever since God spoke to him when he was playing the role of Jesus in the 2004 film The Passion of the Christ.

While filming the crucifixion scene, God drew close to him, Caviezel told The Christian Post, and he said: “They don’t love me. There are very few.”

In response Caviezel told God, “Well, I’m going to love You, and I’m going to tell You that I love You.”

“That’s why our Lord is so alone,” he said. “His creatures do not love Him. And, He could force Himself on us, but would that be love? I don’t think so.”

The Catholic actor said he decided to profess his love for God in a public way, despite the repercussions. “I’m less afraid of ISIS than I am the media,” he quipped.

Nonetheless, playing the roles he does is a privilege, Caviezel said, one that he is thankful for.

“I’m so blessed because I get to convey those stories, but do it in a way… that I know can bring the most souls back to Him, even those that don’t believe,” he said.

In early March, Caviezel met with students from Steubenville University and challenged them to strive for greatness and “be saints.”advertisement

“You weren’t made to ‘fit in,’ my brothers and sisters. You were born to stand out. Set yourself apart from this corrupt generation. Be saints,” he said.

The actor also urged the students to value the liberties that were won for them by their forefathers, and to preserve them.

“I think it’s high time now that we ask ourselves if we still even know the freedoms that were intended for us by our founding fathers,” he said. “Every generation of Americans needs to know that freedom exists, not to do what you like, but having the right to do what you ought.”

Most recently, Caviezel co-stars in a faith-based film called Paul, Apostle of Christ, where the actor plays Saint Luke, a colleague of Paul’s and the presumed author of the third gospel account. The film focused on the end of Paul’s life, at a time when Christians were facing severe persecution from the Roman Empire. Paul was in prison at the time, and soon afterward would give his life for Christ.

Caviezel said that he hopes the movie will draw attention to the plight of persecuted Christians of the present day, who still suffer for their faith in Jesus. He said he is inspired by Christians, who, like Paul, sacrifice everything for their faith.

“When James and John are talking, ‘I want to sit at your right and left hand side,’ that’s what appealed to me,” he said. “And, I saw Paul being like that, and Luke being like that, that they would go the extra mile. There’s so many of us that are called, but few choose.”

In preparing to play the role of Luke, Caviezel said he prayed one simple prayer: “Lord, I don’t want the world to see me, I want them to see You. You gotta get closer to me.”

    Comparing to 7 Billion people living on Earth, Believers who love God, are “few.”
    Think how evil is the influence of Satan, God’ s arch enemy! He has practically nothing to offer, only lies, and hell thereafter. Yet, people fall like flies after his deceiving pretenses..

    Of yea, the drinking, drugs, smoking, adultery parties are FUN, and thereafter, no one monitors sick people, mentally gone people, and tons of pain Humanity bears just because of BAD CHOICES.

    IF you only knew how phenomenal is that quite time & joyous Fellowship with Him, in His Presence, you would curse & deny Satan.
    Demons & Angel’s. Choose Angel’s. Choose Life

    Whose fool are you? We all have been deceived, but awakened to REALITY: HELL is LAVA. Heaven is a Country!
    Wake up!

    I believe what Jim caviezel said, it is very sad that the Lord said that to him. It makes me want to weep. Though I am very imperfect my goal in life is to love the Lord with my heart. I know that there are people that do love the Lord, and I whole heartedley agree with the Lord, there are few. Look at the world today from an honest perspective. We live in an evil, wicked, vile world. Only Jesus can save us. We all have a choice, ( free will) to love him, I want to love him. I go through many difficult times, but I always want to love the Lord. The Catholic saints are examples for us that we can love him! By living a godly life, our lifestyle speaks volumes on how we are pleasing God, we either are or we aren’t. Our Catholic Bible’s should be our life’s compass. My heart aches to hear what the Lord said to the actor. I want to be one of the few that genuinely love the Lord and live an obedient life. So I can spend eternity with Jesus. I am thankful also for his mother Mary by being obedient to the father in all things. She was with Jesus from his birth to the foot of the cross. Thank you Lord for loving us, may there be more than a few including my self, that truly love you.
