"Put on the armor of God so that you may be able to stand firm against the tactics of the devil. For our struggle is not with flesh and blood but with the principalities, with the powers, with the world rulers of this present darkness, with the evil spirits in the heavens."
- St. Paul in his letter to the Ephesians 6:11-12
Having read this Biblical quote and knowing that this is a review of the new Iron Man movie, you would be justified in assuming that the Iron Man suit is somehow related to the "armor of God" and that he is somehow doing symbolic battle with the forces of evil in the Heavens. You could not possibly be further from the Truth.
|Let there be light...|
For Iron Man represents the forces of Prometheus who attacked the gods and stole fire from the Heavens and gave it to Man. Hail Prometheus!
|Prometheus by occultist painter Jean Delville|
If Iron Man represents Prometheus then Iron Man's enemy must represent one of the other gods of Olympus - but not just any god - the one that bound him as punishment for an aeon. Ah, but be patient. All shall be revealed.
|Prometheus Bound by William Blake|
The setting is the site of the New York World's Fair in 1964. Most of you are too young to remember this event. The SYMBOL of the fair was the Unisphere which so prominently features in Iron Man 2.

This celebration took place at the height of the Cold War - just after the Cuban Missile Crisis that brought the world to the brink of nuclear annihilation. Despite the moniker of "world's fair", most major European countries and the Soviet Union refused to participate due to a conflict over the rules. One of the largest exhibits at the "fair" was General Motors' Futurama pavilion which purported to show a city of the future.
This was a time when the Race to the Moon had just begun and the Soviets had a huge lead. They had put into orbit the first artificial satellite - Sputnik (which means "co-traveler") - on October 4, 1957. It took Sputnik just 96 minutes to complete one orbit around the Earth. And thus, the "space age" was born.
On April 12, 1961 Soviet Cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin became the first Man to orbit the Earth.
The first Man to ascend into the heavens - the home of the Gods. Prometheus must have been proud that day of his human protégés.
During his flight, Gagarin famously whistled the tune "The Motherland Hears, The Motherland Knows". The first two lines of the song are: "The Motherland hears, the Motherland knows/Where her son flies in the sky".But the United States with the aid of former Nazi rocket scientist Werner von Braun, who had designed the German V-2 rocket that terrorized England during WW II, was able to not only catch up with the Soviets, but soon overtake them.
[baba: Note that Prometheus and Mother Earth are symbolically closely linked.]
Around the same time, some Western sources claimed that Gagarin, during his space flight, had made the comment, "I don't see any God up here." However, no such words appear in the verbatim record of Gagarin's conversations with the Earth during the spaceflight.
[baba: Isn't it curious how the godless capitalists like to attack the communists for being godless?]

Man had taken his first steps on one of the heavenly bodies which formerly had been exclusively "the home of the gods". Prometheus could truly say at this point in time that he was the proud benefactor of Humanity which was beginning to challenge the gods.
At the New York World's Fair the theme song was provided by Walt Disney. The name was "It's a Small World".
It's a small world after allNever in the History of Mankind had a generation been more effectively brainwashed than the Baby Boom Generation of 20th Century America.
It's a small world after all
It's a small world after all
It's a small, small world
ad infinitum... ad nauseam...
And here we are in 2010. The 21st Century. The Golden Age of Mankind.
In the 20th Century technology was used to Land a Man on the Moon. In the 21st Century technology is used to create a half-robot half-man that can fly through the heavens like a god. Hail Prometheus - bringer of fire and light!

But this creation does not exist in our physical reality. And yet, he is no less real because he is confined to the 2-dimensional virtual space of a movie screen. Because that image projected on that screen is reflected in our eyes and travels through the optic nerve to the optical processing regions of the brain and forms memories just as real as the ones that we experience in the physical world.
He flies - and we fly. He walks through a crowd of reporters and onlookers - and we walk through a crowd of reporters and onlookers. And he battles - and we battle. And he suffers - and we suffer. And he triumphs - and we triumph. Hail Prometheus! Ruler of us all.
And who does he battle? Who is his enemy? Our enemy. Our immortal foe.
It would seem that the Soviet Russians are back again. But wait. What is this? Our godless communist wears a Cross of Jesus. He carries with him prayer beads.
His Father died and left him with the gift of his knowledge. He completed his Father's dream, and made it a reality.
His weapon is electricity. A lethal spark in the shape of an evil whip. Is he not Evil? Should we not hate and despise him?
And in opposition to him stands the evolution of Iron Man. No longer the ferrous metal of the Romans. But a high-tech material which has Progressed to become impervious to all weapons. Invincible. Unstoppable. Immortal. Like the gods of Olympus.
But our Hero suffers a fatal flaw which threatens to destroy his very life. Iron Man is on the verge of self-destruction.
He reaches out to his Father. And begs, "Father, help me". "Help your son to battle against the son of your immortal foe."
|Freemason god with compass inside all-seeing eye by 18th century mystic William Blake|
And the Father receives this message from His Son and reveals to him His Great Plan. But the secrets of the past are hidden in the form of coded messages which only the Chosen can decipher.
As one of the Chosen Scientists, Anthony Stark is able to decode this message from the past and uncover its secret. And behold, a new Element is born.
And this new Element - whose name I do not know, but whose sign is an inverted Triangle - is the Solution which has evaded Tony for all these years. Tony is Saved.
With this new gift from his Father he is able to go out and do battle with the forces that are arrayed against him. And he is able to deliver unto his Enemy a crushing defeat. And we applaud him. He is our Champion. All hail, Prometheus!
Who then is this vile villain against which our Hero battles and eventually Triumphs?
In ancient times it was believed that if one knew the name of one's opponent then one could exert magical powers over him.
The true name of Iron Man's opponent is Zeus. The King of the Gods. The bearer of Lightning and Electricity. It was these same gods of Olympus that had withheld from Man the Power of Technology. Because they knew that once man had acquired these tools of science, that it would only be a matter of Time before Man became greater than the Gods.
|Zeus - Greek god of lightning|
If I were to end this story now, I would be doing the evil forces the greatest favor. Why? Because, the devil is practiced at the art of deception. And up until now the only thing that I have revealed is the very same thing that the devil wants to be revealed. The devil lives in a world where up is down, and down is up.

To read the Truth we need to read the devil's message in a mirror. In that reflection we can finally read the True message.
It's time to lift up the veil.
In the Promethean Legend Zeus does not only represent the gods, but Religion itself. And Prometheus is Lucifer - the devil himself. But Lucifer/Prometheus is depicted by the satanic forces as a great hero. Someone or something to be worshipped.
Prometheus is Progress. And according to the devil, all Progress is Good. And also according to the devil, Religion is the Enemy of Progress.
And that is why in the movie Iron Man, the enemy is depicted wearing a Cross. While Iron Man is depicted wearing the Luciferean symbol of an inverted triangle.

|Fiery fennel emerges from head of Baphomet|
[Can you see the similarities between the two figures above? In order to do so you must focus on the overall composition as an artist would and not on the details. The faces and the arms do not match up, in this context. Instead the head of Iron Man corresponds to the flaming fennel which juts out above the head of the Baphomet. And Iron Man's arms correspond to the wings of the goat-faced creature. Notice the hidden embedded inverted triangle inside the pentagram (five pointed star) on the forehead of the Evil One and observe how its position lines up with the Inverted Triangle Sigil on the chest of Iron Man. Just below this on Iron Man's chest are what appear to be a pair of eyes corresponding to the face of the monster.]
|Pentagram - five pointed star|
[The space between Iron Man's body and his left arm suggests the downward left arm of the half-human figure, while the v-shaped pose of its right arm is imitated by the outline formed by the illuminated clouds on the right side of Iron Man's body. And in both pictures the lighting seems to be provided by a moon hidden behind the clouds. Now take one last look at the figure of Iron Man and notice how the helmet which encapsulates the skull of the lost soul trapped inside appears to be on fire when contrasted with the rest of the figure. This represents the fire which Prometheus stole from the gods. But this fire also represents the gift of intellect which is the function of the most mysterious of all human organs - the brain. And one final observation. The Iron Man suit is an artificial exoskeleton - like that of an ant or a shark. Interestingly enough their is one part of the human body that God created with a true exoskeleton to protect it - the brain. The human skull is like a helmet which protects and cushions the brain from impact. Which brings up an age old philosophical question. Where is the seat of the soul in the human body? Is it in the intellectual brain encased in the skull, or in the pounding heart surrounded by a skeletal cage?]
The battle that takes place in the Heavens above the Unisphere is between the Christ and the Anti-Christ. Can you figure out by now which is which? The drones are a diabolical representation of God's angels. We are seeing how this battle should take place according to the Anti-Revelation of the satanic forces.
|"Satan arousing the rebel angels" by William Blake|
From this satanic point of view, Christ is a monster determined to keep Man from acquiring the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge. It is as if the world had been turned upside down and Heaven is below, and Hell is above. Or as if the demons were to occupy Heaven, while the angels were exiled to Hell.

There is one last clue. As the credits are rolling the first song that we hear is "Highway to Hell". Oh, you trickster. See how you dare to reveal yourself to us. What infernal game is this that you are playing?
