I loved Greek Mythology growing up. I had a thick Bulfinch’s, the bible of myth books. I took classes, I read about them on my own. Greek myths were really interesting to me.
But now I know that there is one True God, that is El Shaddai, the Ancient of Days. All the rest are lies from satan, spawned upon gullible humans after he fell. Not convinced? Here is a short definition of the original Greek god myth:
“The Titans, also known as the elder gods, ruled the earth before the Olympians overthrew them. The ruler of the Titans was Cronus who was de-throned by his son Zeus. Most of the Titans fought with Cronus against Zeus and were punished by being banished to Tartarus. Since it is satan’s version, of course the gods of Olympus (new crop of underling gods) eventually defeated the Titans (original ones). Many of the Titans were cast into Tartarus.”
Oh, how satan would like to make a revisionist history like that one really stick!
Here is the bible:
“For God did not spare angels when they had sinned, but hurling them down to Tartarus consigned them to caves of darkness, keeping them in readiness for judgement.” (2 Peter 2:4 WNT).
Most versions of the verse say that they were cast down to ‘gloomy dungeons’ and there is usually a footnote at the bottom, and gloomy dungeons is defined “Tartarus.” So in the Greek myths version (satan’s) he won, and God is sent to Tartarus. In the bible, the truth is that God wins and satan’s henchmen are in Tartarus.
In The Iliad (c. 700), Zeus asserts that Tartarus is “as far beneath Hades as heaven is high above the earth.”
In the bible we read, “For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him;” (Psalm 103:11).
In Luke 10:15 we see “And you, Capernaum, will not be exalted to heaven, will you? You will be brought down to Hades!”
And in Isaiah we read, “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. (Isaiah 55:9).
I visited a bible forum in the pursuit of quotes for this essay. In one forum, they were marveling that Greek myths were in the bible and therefore being taught as authoritative. It really stumped them.
The Greek myths were spawned from satan as a perversion of the Truth, people! The bible came FIRST! I didn’t write that on the forum, lol, but I really wanted to let them have it.
The new movie out called “The Immortals” is an updating of the ancient Greek myths. Look at the synopsis below and tell me that doesn’t sound familiar:
“Eons after the Gods won their mythic struggle against the Titans, a new evil threatens the land. Mad with power, King Hyperion has declared war against humanity. Amassing a bloodthirsty army of soldiers disfigured by his own hand, Hyperion has scorched Greece in search of the legendary Epirus Bow, a weapon of unimaginable power forged in the heavens by Ares. Only he who possesses this bow can unleash the Titans, who have been imprisoned deep within the walls of Mount Tartaros since the dawn of time and thirst for revenge. In the king’s hands, the bow would rain destruction upon mankind and annihilate the Gods. But ancient law dictates the Gods must not intervene in man’s conflict. They remain powerless to stop Hyperion…until a peasant named Theseus comes forth as their only hope. Secretly chosen by Zeus, Theseus must save his people from Hyperion and his hordes…”
“Fifth Trumpet: The Locusts from the Bottomless Pit”
“Then the fifth angel sounded: And I saw a star fallen from heaven to the earth. To him was given the key to the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit, (Tartarus) and smoke arose out of the pit like the smoke of a great furnace. So the sun and the air were darkened because of the smoke of the pit. Then out of the smoke locusts came upon the earth. And to them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.” Revelation 9:1-3.
Of course satan’s only human hope is the antichrist. Just like the ‘only hope’ character in the movie, the antichrist has a bow, too. “Now I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals; and I heard one of the four living creatures saying with a voice like thunder, “Come and see.” And I looked, and behold, a white horse. He who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer.” (Rev 6:1-2)
I hope by now you see the parallels. The spiritual war that we know is occurring is being played out among us and soon it will be real and visible enough. Hollywood has been an aider and abettor of satan since the early days of film and The Immortals is just another example of how satan is preparing humanity to accept the lie. The themes of most of the movies we see nowadays are in some way parallel to the themes of the last days events that will soon enough be playing out in your front yard.
As far as movies in general go, use a simple question before deciding to sacrifice your time and your money at the altar of Hollywood moguls, “Does it honor God?” The rapture is soon. Please be engaged in some activity that you will be relieved to have been doing the split-second before you see Him!
