The movie The Immortals and the bible

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!

    AMEN!! I seriously cannot shout that enough to this post. AMEN!!!

    For "funsies," let me tell you: Hyperion was a god I worshipped as one of my primary ones towards the end of my time as a pagan, along with his "wife" Theia.

    YES, Satan loves to play with us through the media!

    Isn't it interesting-- he's the prince of the air, and there are so many lies spread through the "airwaves?"

  2. Wow Emily, that is amazing you worshiped Hyperion! Cool thought about the prince of the air and the airwaves. I never thought about it like that.

    I wonder if the Hollywood executives will ever see, On That Day, just how many demons have been around them whispering in their ears these "great ideas" they thought they came up with all by themselves.

  3. First, thank you for your blog, I found it when I was struggling to put my finger on what was wrong with Beth Moore and trying to persuade the women's ministry at our church to not do one of her studies.

    I couldn't tell from what you wrote today but it sounds like you might have been writing that the ancient "gods" of mythology were the nephilim of the Bible. I read a book by Tom Horn where he said they were the "men of renown" of Genesis 6 and then after the flood. Nephilim. His premise is that the names have changed over different cultures due to the Tower of Babel, but that they are all the same. And the reason that they are so ingrained into our cultures is that they were real instead of imaginary. And that basically the revival of them through Hollywood is to get us (whoever is here) to accept them when they reappear during the tribulation.

    It is an interesting theory to me, and your post seemed like you might have been going in that direction, just wondered if you were familiar with this line of thought.

    Blessings to you, and thank you for writing! I look forward every day to your posts.

  4. Hi Amy,

    You are welcome!

    Yes, I completely believe the Nephilim, the biblical "They were the heroes of old, men of renown" Gen 6:4 are the source for the handed-down myths of the Greek and Roman gods.

    If you do a search for the word 'Nephilim' in the box at the top right of the blog, you will see lots of results of where I've written my thoughts on them.

    David stamped the last tribes of Nephilim out, and that the original fallen angels who mated with women are in Tartarus, but that as the bible says in Gen 6:4 as they were on earth in those days "and also after that" and as Jesus says in Luke 17:26 that it will be like Noah's day again- it means that the fallen angels who spawned the Nephilim will be around probably during the Tribulation. Rev 9:1-3 shows that the demons from the abyss will be let out. However I think the actual fleshly spawn, the giants, are indeed gone forever. I hope!

  5. It is so true, Hollywood is following the evil one. And they are secretly conditioning people to accept a one world ruler, one world religion, a police state, even "alien" contact.

    My daughter decided to watch "My Little Pony" on TV yesterday. Of course I was watching it with her, and I was shocked by the overt witchcraft. It was not just magic spells. I saw the Kabbalah tree of life symbol etched in the stained glass of the freemason temple looking castle. I saw the eight pointed star of Ishtar with the obelisk of Baal inside of it. I saw a book with the one of a kind owl trademark symbol of the bohemian grove on it. Another shot showed a stained glass window with three upside down crosses on it. There was the pagan trinity "mother maiden crone" symbol. It was drawing straight from the illuminati in so many ways. How satanic can you get? And how many Christian parents would even notice or be able to identify those things? It was telling the children that they can get energy from the elements to defeat the "spirit of chaos and disunity."

    Of course I turned it off immediately, but I went back and showed my husband what I had seen. He was blown away.

    And the Veggie Tales are too religious and offensive for TV? Really???

  6. Jesus is indeed the only WAY TRUTH and LIFE. Any other teachings out there are merely 'threads of truth' saturated in poison from the enemy, This brand of poison is akin to rat poison which is made from mostly good stuff, but it only takes a very small amount of poison to kill. It's a poison that is indeed sweet to the taste of a hungry and somewhat gullible modern public, who would rather seek out their idea of 'truth' by sitting and being entertained by whatever Hollywood throws out there rather than seeking God through His Word, repenting of their sins, and living/loving like Jesus.

    I burned my copies of the Iliad and Odyssey as well as a beautifully illustrated Tao te Ching, not because of their obvious untruths, for which case I would need to burn all works of fiction in my possession, but for the threads of truth that were saturated in lies, making a mockery out of the true gospel of Jesus Christ, which is the devil's intent after all.
    (and thanks to Hollywood he is even better at this).

  9. I know you can't believe that we are so fervent about our faith. You literally CAN'T. The bible says "The man without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned." 1 Corinthians 2:14

  11. Ok, I've read all posts, and I have one question as a True Believer. Should I Goan see this movie, or is if a waste of time? I just finished Revalation with my 13yr old daughter and I thought this movie would make sense to her and I on a biblical sense. So, yes or no???

  12. Hello J. Mitchell,

    Thank you for reading the posts. That's great.

    I'd say, if you want your daughter to romanticize a relationship with a 108 year old demon who wants to kill her, then sure, go. This hellish model of a marital relationship surely won't lead to our young women accepting physical abuse as part of the normal course of marriage...You have a choice to take her to a move that shows her a biblical model of marriage, where the men cherishes her above himself and honors her before God, such as Fireproof, as one example. Your call

    If you want to show her a model of using a man-made fallen culture movie to validate the bible instead of the bible validating the bible, then go.

    By all means, spend your money supporting Hollywood scripts that promote interspecies demonic sex with hybrid children as the hellish result. That way, they can write more scripts that target your daughter's mind and heart.

    By all means, go, thereby showing your daughter that the word of God is to be set aside when we have a personal agenda, idle time, or mere curiosity.

    I don't mean to be harsh, but I can't think of any clearer way to say it because I've already said it six ways to Sunday.

    1. Is grace the name of a woman? It sounds like your referring to God as "she" ...also making separate distinctions of Jesus and God when they are one and the same
