American Odyssey (known in the UK under its original title Odyssey) is an American thriller television series which premiered on April 5, 2015, on NBC. Created by Peter Horton, Adam Armus and Kay Foster, the series revolves around the discovery by a U.S. Army team on a secret mission in Mali, that a major U.S. company has been funding Islamist terror groups and the cover-up of it, which involves the attack and killing of the team soldiers by private military contractors sent by the same company.
The series stars Anna Friel, Peter Facinelli, Jake Robinson, Jim True-Frost, Treat Williams, Nate Mooney, Elena Kampouris, Daniella Pineda, Sadie Sink, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje and Omar Ghazaoui. It is envisioned by the creators as a modern-day take on Homer's Odyssey.
On June 30, 2015, NBC canceled the series after one season. WIKIPEDIA
The final episode of the series was shown tonight. A kind of gripping military tale in the style of the CIA Homeland which ran to several series.
There was a similar moment in Homeland as in this episode, where all too human characters admit that they are in something they have no control over, that they have lost all question of choice in the god like roles they have chosen to play.
How true to life these messes are. In fact on reflection this is the Genesis 3 conundrum.....
if I make myself god, I am instead "played like pawn" in a game that never has a lifegiving outcome, but rather one that sucks life out of planet earth.
All the characters bar a handful already had their hands tied. They had allowed themselves to be framed by greater powers, bribed, controlled by their own greed, by secrets they did not want others to know. or by personal lust for power.
All these things Jesus addressed in His temptations in the wilderness. He was the ONLY FREE MAN. The strong man in His case had been bound.
History shows repeatedly that the "independent self" position has embroiled us in something we cannot get out of. EXCEPT we renounce our delusion, and come into the LIFE OF CHRIST.
Americans would count themselves free, but already by 1914 they had been manipulated into the War of Independence and then into Civil War. House of Rothschild and their masonic lodges had brought about these wars for banker's gain. (See Juri Lina Architects of Deception) so by now you can understand their reluctance to face war again in the form of a World War.
But once more they didn't stand a chance against the new science of political mind control invented and perfected by the Freud dynasty. Freud's nephew twisted the will of the entire nation back into War in 1914 for the profit of those selling arms and other gains to be made in the fragile atmosphere of war.
Unless God has circumcised people in their innermost parts along the lines of the parable of the sower, and the Lord's Prayer mid section, anybody of extreme wealth and power can buy whoever they choose
through promise of wealth and security for their fears,
through inflamed rage against an entirely manipulated "unjust" situation.
Nearly every decade in the last century this has been practiced on whoever the Elite care to prey on.
Can we change things?
According to the Lord's Prayer we can
We can get caught up in the Spirit instead, so that we see what Christ is actually doing, and exercise His authoriy in His Name instead.
Lead us not into the time of testing but deliver us from evil.
Even now the Fema camps in America have been constructed and are waiting.....
Lead us not into the time of testing
But deliver us from evil.
The blog writer personally knows Anna Friel and is sad the tale was wound up at the end of
the first series when a second had been planned. It was visually rich and had many many plot components.
