The Avengers – an Eschatologically Aware Review

Saw Avengers last night with friends. Very interesting quote from the Steve Rogers / Captain America character –

 

Ma’am, there’s only one God, and I’m pretty sure he doesn’t look like that.

 

Theme focuses on individual liberties granted to us by THAT God – YHWH of Israel! See how Loki (the bad guy) seems to “borrow” from Islamic rhetoric?

“It’s the unspoken truth of humanity that you crave subjugation. The bright lure of freedom diminishes your life’s joy in a mad scramble for power.. for identity. You were made to be ruled. In the end, you will always kneel.”

Doesn’t that just make you mad?

And look at box office opening. It’s a “smash” hit!

I recommend it – with a caution. While, I think, there was somewhat of a brilliant mix of traditional heroism with today’s popular “anti-hero” by writer, director Joss Whedon, also remain aware of those sneaky, subliminal “Frankfurt School aesthetics” – chaos elements designed to suck your brain into a vaccuum of acceptance of universalist and satanic thoughts.

Thoughts like “The aliens/devil made me do it.” YHWH doesn’t lie:

“You made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor.” Psalm 8:5 and “Do you not know that we will judge angels? How much more matters of this life?” 1st Corinthians 6:3

Aliens are demons. Blue beams will create holographic signs and wonders in the sky. And what the blue beam project can’t do, zero point energy spacecraft (under developement by multiple agencies since the 40’s – BEFORE the “alien” scare existed!) will further “convince” the masses for the soon-coming “War of the Worlds” 2.0 “radio show.”

Big topic. But I think it’s key for avoiding the “strong delusion” –

“Do you not remember that when I was still with you I told you these things? And now you know what is restraining, that he may be revealed in his own time. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming. The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” 2nd Thessalonians 2

So, yeah. Fun… but stay awake, Saints.  ‘Avengers’ Now $260.5M Overseas: Could Reach $585M Worldwide Through Sunday With U.S., Canada, Russi EXCLUSIVE: My sources estimate the juggernaut that is Marvel’s The Avengers could close in on $160M when it opens in North America this weekend and $425M

Childlike Faith

Encouragement to seek the higher truth:

Beyond acknowledgement of the soul-salvation of Yeshua (Jesus), seek the detailed implementation of that salvation. “For you did not receive the spirit of slavery leading again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption, by whom we cry, ‘Abba, Father.'” (Rom. 8:15) and children EXPLORE! In their deep confidence they rejoice in life and worship (enjoy) the glory of their parents (even in our fallen state!). Be thankful for the little things. Open your eyes like a child for the wonder in the details! Look for the deeper, higher realities of everything in the created order!

Write about it! Film it!
