Pacific Rim: In The Bible

Pacific Rim is a $190 million sci-fi tale about earth’s heroes(in mythology the heroes were the children of the gods/nephilim) battling against skyscraper-size alien monsters that enter our world through a rift on the ocean floor.  These aliens resemble dinosaurs and all share a collective consciousness [Revelaiton 17:13], which makes battling them difficult because they learn from each encounter.  The movie follows a long list of movies with the same premise: it’s the apocalypse stupid, why didn’t you know about it!!  Movies like, Oblivion, Escape From Planet Earth, Now You See Me, After Earth, The World’s End, This Is The End, The Purge, World War Z, Elysium, Rapture Palooza, etc…
So here’s where it gets interesting…
In Mythology, the Titans were greek gods born from a union of earth and sky, which alludes to the Nephilim of the bible [Genesis 6:4], angels that came down and mated with women and produced children.  In Pacific Rim, the Titans are used to fight an invading army. (Remember that idea)... 

There are several groups/countries represented in the movie, and are controlling different Titans.  Russia, China, Japan, and the United States are the last countries represented by Titans.  In the end, the Titans represented by Russia and China are defeated in battle the rest is up to interpretation. 

Idris Elba is a well known leading man in movies, and plays a major role in the Pacific Rim, but if I may: if you haven’t seen him in the TV Show Luther, then you have missed some of his great performances.  So back to the premise of the film; the governments of the world have created giant robots called Titans, which are piloted by two humans that mind-meld in order to interface with and control these massive robots.  So once again the idea of transhumanism [Daniel 2:43]is coupled with fighting the apocalypse as seen in Oblivion, Enders Game, After Earth, Elysium, and don’t forget Wolverine.  There is a scene in the movie where Idris Elba says, “We’re cancelling the apocalypse today.”  That is to say that we men believe that we can fight the apocalypse and prevent it.    In Revelation Chapter 16 it talks about men being deceived into trying to fight against the armies of God [Revelation 16:13-16].  These men are tricked into believing that they can stop the apocalypse which coincides with a major earthquake, which causes rifts all over the earth.  Sound familiar? 

There is a lot more that I could say, but it would be over-kill and pointless if you don’t get it by now!
