WARNING: This article contains SPOILERS for Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice (and for the future of the world as we know it). Proceed at your own caution.
The Man of Steel should be the dream man of all Christian girls: a do-gooding boy-scout who is probably only second to Jesus himself in the humility stakes. Extraordinarily powerful but so humble that he puts the lives of the lowly humans above his own. Christlikeness exemplified.
Whereas a brooding, rich, playboy who has more issues than a team of psychologists working around the clock can solve seems more like the perfect exemplification of everything that is wrong with this fallen world. Perverted justice rather than merciful justice. Bruce Wayne almost the opposite of the divine, yet compassionately human, Clark Kent.
The Jesus/Superman parallels were amped up in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Starting out with a glimpse of Superman as a god at war in the sky, ending with a resurrection teaser and littered with plenty of messianic poses in between.
The push in the news montage midway through the movie was an unsubtle commentary on man's need for a messiah; suggesting that Superman is just one in a string of historical messianic figures, including Jesus. It was a string of sound-bytes of the New Age deception carefully woven into the narrative.
The end of the world?
Apocalyptic themes were rife, with Lex Luthor's creation named Doomsday becoming the major villain by the end of the movie. And in this apocalypse the last chance for humanity was the most recent of the messianic heroes in an act of crucifixion-reminiscent self-sacrifice. Something borrowed heavily in other blockbusters seeped in the same religious imagery—such as the Harry Potter finale.
They add a final dose of Christianity-replacement in this new era where faith in the old messiah, the Christ, is unnecessary. The alien who can swoop in at a moment's notice becomes the true saviour of humanity as 2016 knows it... and the great Christian hymn is rebranded at Superman's funeral. No longer about being born again for the true Christian, Amazing Grace becomes a message of general hope given to humans regarding their new self-sacrificing alien messiah.
Of course the Jesus parallels are no mere coincidence. It's almost as if Zack Snyder has been getting his source material from recent prophecy rather than the original comics. Recent prophecy is that a grand deception is coming and it involves messianic aliens, who are probably not clothed in red and blue tights (but may have the chiselled good looks).
Primed for deception
When the world is in war and turmoil of the latter days, in true cinematic climatic form, aliens will show up to be the heroes. Another messiah will emerge, and perhaps even claim to be the true Jesus: a false creator who seeded the earth through panspermia.
That's the lie and movies like this one are priming the soil for the coming deception. Star Wars becoming reality. Are the aliens coming to help us enter into a new stage of evolution or to destroy us?
It's been played out from the beginning like clockwork. In the works since 1947. The idea of the world's governments keeping the 'truth' about aliens from the people. Both Hillary Clinton and David Cameron have both promised full disclosure about aliens. It's a ploy, to pretend aliens have been among us all this time and when disclosure comes it's going to be the strong delusion the Bible warns about.
Humankind has been primed for this by movies, TV and conspiracy theories about aliens. Though if you look into alien accounts, they echo demonic oppression and possession of old. Alien abductions have been a spiritual phenomenon, not a natural one. UFOs are dimensional like angels, and not within the same confines of space.
Satan, as an angel of light, would come as a Superman-type figure if he was to deceive the whole world. The alien saviour who can do no wrong. A peacemaking future ruler who is too humble to call himself a ruler until the position is thrust upon him.
Superman goes to show that the perfect man is an alien and the perfect man/alien is the blueprint for the coming deception that will fool the entire world. Behind every movie is an unhealthy dose of propaganda.
Will we hail our alien messiah as our saviour?
Only if we're not aware of the seeds of deception carefully inserted into everything we watched.
Jesus is the only messiah we should love with our hearts, minds and soul... and he doesn't have anything to do with Krypton.
