I saw the movie “Greenland” recently and I loved it. It is not a Christian movie but it is an apocalyptic movie and that falls within the discussion of the book of Revelation and trust Hollywood, it will always go for the theatrical with its special effects and great acting. For the sole purpose of entertainment, the movie is great. I personally love Gerald Butler.
The problem is that nowadays, the distinction between, opinion and information has become confusing and somewhat similar. The lines between reality and fiction have become blurry and so many people are falling for the deception especially by Hollywood when the topic at hand is one that falls within the domain of God. The apocalypse is within the domain of God. Hollywood is set to indoctrinate than entertain.
First, 1st Thessalonians 5:2-3 says “For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.” Also, Matthew 25 about the wise and foolish virgins especially verse 6 “And at midnight a cry was heard ‘Behold, the bridegroom is coming; go out to meet him”
In all Hollywood apocalyptic movies like Greenland, there is a deception that Humanity (NASA) will detect the coming of the destruction before it arrives and then take proper precautions. More like saying man will outwit God. That man is smarter than God is and man can predict God’s plans. It gives man’s plans a sense of superiority to God’s divine command. Still, on the “smarter-than-God” thing, humanity even foresees the possibility of such an event and plans years for it with all our technologies and science, hence the underground bunkers built secretly years before the destruction. Therefore, the Bible saying that that day will come upon us unprepared is a lie.
Therefore, the question, if humanity is smarter and wiser than God is, then why does humanity need God?
Also, if humanity is smarter and wiser than God, who is the God between God and humanity?
The king of Babylon; king Nebuchadnezzar had the same “I am smarter and wiser than God” thoughts in his mind and he spoke it out in Daniel 4: 28-33 and the consequences were grave for him… “All this came upon the king Nebuchadnezzar. At the end of twelve months he walked in the palace of the kingdom of Babylon. The king spake, and said, Is not this great Babylon, that I have built for the house of the kingdom by the might of my power, and for the honour of my majesty? While the word was in the king’s mouth, there fell a voice from heaven, saying, O king Nebuchadnezzar, to thee it is spoken; The kingdom is departed from thee. And they shall drive thee from men, and thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field: they shall make thee to eat grass as oxen, and seven times shall pass over thee, until thou know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will. The same hour was the thing fulfilled upon Nebuchadnezzar: and he was driven from men, and did eat grass as oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven, till his hairs were grown like eagles’ feathers, and his nails like birds’ claws.” Never forget, God had warned in Exodus 20:3-5 “Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
