2003's Daredevil might be not only the worst comic book hero film of the decade, but also the goofiest, apparently written and directed by the kids you see hanging out in the food court wearing trench coats.
Anyway, it isn't too hard to figure out who the devil is in this one; the question is, what kind of devil is being portrayed? As we'll see, this devil is the New Agey one--the most common competitor of the Biblical version--or what we call the neo-Gnostic Luciferian devil.
Before we begin we'll make one point clear: we here at NWOIB consider the terms Satan, Lucifer (name or title), devil, serpent, the adversary, the dragon, or whatever else, as synonymous for the entity and his/its cronies who harbor malevolent intent toward God's creation. We don't claim to know his/its proper name, and don't really care.
The film opens with a moonlight cityscape. The moon is one of the film's central motifs.
Then, what appears to be a drop of blood falls from above (divine revelation), and as ripples float across the water, we find that we are looking at a puddle reflecting the city and sky. The image is then turned 180 degrees.
The message here is that what you think as reality is merely an illusion. This reality becomes distorted, but this distortion comes as a form of gnosis: to understand true reality you will have to adjust your point of view. And this is precisely the intent of this movie and the others we've looked at: to shift your worldview, especially concerning heavenly bodies/forces.
Then we see Daredevil clinging to a cross high above the church, bleeding. It was his blood that landed in the puddle and revealed the distorted world for us. What we have here is the devil shedding his blood on the cross, and it is his blood that saves us from the false world view.
He is wounded from a fight, and tries to descend. He lowers himself into the church using his cane/weapon, then falls the last part of the way. This scene is obviously symbolic of his fall from Heaven, but as we'll see this isn't presented as a negative fall, as in the traditional sense. This fall is similar to the X-Men fall, it is voluntary.
The priest finds Daredevil and says, "My god."
He's referring to the Gnostic god: Satan is masquerading as the God of the Old Testament, Lucifer is the good god.
Then we go back in time to when Daredevil, Matt Murdock, was a boy.
A young Matt on his Hell's Kitchen rooftop staring at the moon.
The moon then morphs into a biohazard symbol.
It is this biohazard that gives Matt his powers. He loses his sight but gains extraordinary senses and a harmonic radar that allows him a special type of vision. This reminds us of Neo in The Matrix who also lost his sight, but gained another type of vision. This goes back to Odin who gave up an eye for wisdom.
The association with the moon indicates this power is heavenly, or cosmic; it is at night when Matt becomes Daredevil to administer his vigilante justice. He transforms at night, like a werewolf.
During the day Matt is a lawyer, doing mostly pro bono work for poor, innocent people. Above we see another reference to the devil as god. In the above shot, Matt is positioned between the words "In God... We Trust."
We, of course, are the poor, innocent people, having been wrongly convicted by God in the fall of man. And it is our enlightened lawyer, the devil, who will show us the reality of our situation. He will save us. This devil-as-savior, the new age version of Satan, the one who brings light, and thus freedom, is the distortion required to prepare people for the NWO antichrist.
"The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord."
After the justice system has failed to convict a rapist, we see him gloating outside the courthouse near a "peace" symbol written on the sidewalk. Here the peace symbol, which is a broken cross, represents the ineffectiveness of God's law. This is why Matt must act as a vigilante at night; because there must be justice.
Daredevil goes to work that night. There is a battle in a barroom, until the only one left is the guy he's looking for, and all the pool tables are on fire--which he must walk through to get to the rapist waiting on the other side. This is a silly, melodramatic scene with crappy music, but not meaningless.
"There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire,"
Daredevil is actually the son of Jack "The Devil" Murdock, a boxer who was killed by the Kingpin for disobedience. This "passing through the fire" in the bar room to administer his brand of justice is a direct affront to God's law.
After the death of the rapist in the subway tunnel, the police have the area taped off and a reported Ben Urich arrives to cover the story on "The Daredevil."
The policeman says, "There is no proof that your so-called Daredevil was involved, nor that he even exists."
This Daredevil is a mythical figure to most people, there is no proof he exists. However, the reporter throws his cigarette down and ignites the flaming DD left by the Daredevil.
Ben Urich has the eyes to see. Promethean fire, light, gnosis.
Next we see a huge building, the tallest around. Incorporated into the design of the building/high place is a cross shape, and a corporate logo: the world with "Fisk Corp" written on it.
This is our demiurge/God: Wilson Fisk, corporate bureaucrat of the city/material world. His heavenly office has a water motif. The Name "Fisk" means water. Water, representing the flood of Genesis, is often associated with God as an evil destroyer.
The Kingpin too is a mythical figure. No one can believe that one man runs all the crime in the city. Both he and Daredevil are real of course, but they are both good are hiding themselves.
Murdock and his partner Frank Nelson take on an innocent man falsely accused. He has been framed for murder by the Kingpin's men. He represents the Gnostic view of an innocent humanity imprisoned by the demiurge. This subplot was not part of the theatrical release, but was included in the Director's Cut DVD.
The film's christos is an assassin named Bullseye. The bullseye on his forehead represents the "third eye" of enlightenment. He also has special powers: he can throw things like paperclips or pencils as deadly weapons.
After Bullseye is summoned for some dirty work by The Kingpin, we see him ascending in christos fashion at the airport.
Matt Murdock is invited to a "Black and White Ball" hosted by Fisk.
Seconds later we see black and white balls in the background. Soccer balls. The significance of this has several levels:
1) It represents the dualistic conflict between light and darkness, good and evil, similar to the game of chess theme often seen in these kinds of films.
2) The geometric shape of a soccer ball is a truncated icosahedron:12 pentagonal faces and 20 hexagonal faces.
A Kabbalstic Talisman of the Magi is made of one pentagram and one hexagram on the obverse side. The Talisman of the Moon, for example, was used to protect travelers in a foreign land.
This may be indicative of magic being performed in the film.
3) This ball represents the cosmic struggle going on, but also the cosmic battleground called the universe.
Space Seen as Finite, Shaped Like a Soccer Ball
"Scientists have kicked around many possibilities for the shape of the cosmos and whether or not it has a boundary. Now one group says the big house is set up something like the surface of a soccer ball, with cosmic patches stitched together to form a decidedly finite universe."
This soccer ball shape--actually a dodecahedron--represents, or is thought to represent, the shape of the demiurge's material prison (a theme we'll look at more closely in Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey)
The black and white ball is where Matt meets the Kingpin for the first time.
In Heaven, Bullseye and Fisk meet. As in the movie 300, we again see here that the sin of pride is recast. Fisk tells Bullseye:
"There's an old saying that too much pride can kill a man."
Bullseye: "The devil is mine."
Fisk: "I've heard that before... all too many times." The idea here is that God has been trying to get rid of the devil for a long time, but no one has been able to do it yet.
Frank Nelson is having trouble making progress on the murder case. The only lead they have is "MOM 6-8" from the girl's apartment.
It is their secretary that discovers the message is upside down. Frank rotates it 180 degrees.
It should be read "WOW 8-9." And this new POV implicates Fisk's assistant Wesley Owen Welch. Now they know it is Fisk who is the culprit.
This is again an allusion to changing one's point of view to see things clearly, to understand who is good and who is bad. In Daredevil, the devil is good and God is bad--Gnosticism 101.
Then we're back to the beginning, the devil falling from Heaven. As he is lying on the floor of the church, Daredevil tells the priest, "I don't ask for mercy. people ask me."
Daredevil and Bullseye have a showdown in the church. They both ascend high into the church to battle--back into Heaven, indicating a spiritual battle.
Bullseye repeats again, "The devil is mine."
A police sniper fires through a window. Daredevil moves Bullseye's hand to take the bullet. Both hands are pierced like a crucifixion.
Bullseye: "My hands. You took away my hands. Mercy."
In this scene, the christos is defeated by the devil, and he asks the devil for mercy. Daredevil then throws Bullseye out the window, or casts him out of Heaven.
With the christos defeated, Daredevil goes after God in Heaven.
The devil doesn't do so well against God at first, but then realizes the water-filled office can be used to his advantage. This is a popular modern theme: using the flood in describing God as evil.
Daredevil kicks Kingpin in both knees, forcing him to the floor. Here we see God kneeling before the devil. Utter blasphemy.
But Daredevil doesn't kill Kingpin; he tells God: "I'm not the bad guy"--meaning, "you are."
Their falsely accused client is released: the devil sets the captives free. This is the antichrist devil impersonating Jesus.
Outside the Church of the Holy Innocents, the reporter Urich tells Murdock he knows the identity of the Daredevil and that he is going to run a story exposing him as the vigilante.
Murdock says, "Ben, if you run that story, I'm finished."
If the devil is exposed for what he really is, he will be finished. This reminds us of the devil's greatest trick: convincing the world he doesn't exist. That's interesting, because that's exactly what we're doing here... but who has the eyes to see?
Ben Urich decides not to go ahead with the story.
God is now bound. The New Testament tells us that Satan is bound.
The christos too, who seemed to be dead after he was thrown from the church (Heaven). He is not only alive but retains his powers; he skewers a fly with a syringe while in a full-body cast. As a voiceover we here Daredevil say:
"The battle of good versus evil is never ending. Because evil always survives with the help of evil men."
So there it is, pure neo-Gnostic Luciferian propaganda in which everything has been reversed to glorify Satan and make God look evil. Most viewers will never understand that this is really a religious movie, they will only find their perspective shifted ever so slightly and have no idea why.

Here's another film we've addressed previously on the topics of Christmas and the hidden letter Lamed in the above poster.
2008's Tom Cruise "thriller" Valkyrie is a historical event, of course--although it's a thriller that everyone already knows the ending to, and knows that the plot fails even before the film begins, so it's as thrilling as that can be--and an apparently historically accurate one, but if we look at all the evidence we have no doubt that Valkyrie and its historical precedent are here being used as NWO propaganda. Like the film 300, the July 20 assassination event is merely the framework on which the message is hung.
Also like the Spartans of 300, the July 20 plotters failed in their literal applications; however, it is the symbolism of each event that is important to them--then and now. Both groups knew they were going to die, but it was putting up the fight that was most important.
Both events are here amended into the modern Gnostic Luciferian theology: that of a small band of rebels taking on the tyrannical dictatorship (God/demiurge). That is the true motivation for these films.
At the start we find Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg journaling in a tent in Tunisia. He has realized the madness of Hitler and decides to take action. He writes: "My duty as an officer is no longer to save my country, but to save human lives."
If this line is taken together with the bloodline Lamed symbol, we can see that Stauffenberg represents the christos in the film. It is shortly after this gnosis point that Stauffenberg loses his eye; the real Stauffenberg lost an eye, but in the film the gnosis and losing the eye are juxtaposed together in keeping with the Norse mythology of Odin, who sacrificed an eye for wisdom.
While Stauffenberg is recovering from his injuries, a plane lands in Prussia.
26? Gee... wonder whose plane that is.
Recall that in Hebrew gematria YHWH = 26.
It's Hitler and his cronies.
Hitler represents God in the film. The evil dictator, the eugenicist, the destroyer of nations.
"The lion is come up from his thicket, and the destroyer of the Gentiles is on his way; he is gone forth from his place to make thy land desolate; and thy cities shall be laid waste, without an inhabitant."
In a bombed-out church, Stauffenberg is recruited into the German Resistance. As Hitler's war machine is failing, God's house is falling apart. Stauffenberg says: "I know now there is only one way to serve Germany. And doing so I'll be a traitor. I accept that."
Lucifer must rebel to save humanity from God.
The small band of rebels (angles) who depart from the ultimate authority and attempt a coup d'etat. Stauffenberg is the key player here, even commanding generals above him.
The first attempt is made in the Wolf's Lair (Heaven).
Using state-of-the-art explosive technology (gnosis), the plotters plan to use the strength of the bunker against itself: only a small explosion is required inside, then the air pressure created by the blast will kill everyone inside the windowless structure.
This corruption-of-the-stronghold theme is something we see repeated often today: Heaven is boring, playing harps, being a servant of God, Christopher Hitchens' "celestial North Korea," All my friends will be in Hell, and so on.
Stauffenberg and the fallen rebels are going to see to it "that Hitler's Germany has seen its last sunrise."
Here again we refer the reader to the previous Christmas posting as the winter solstice celebration is an extremely significant event for the NWO Custodians. Stauffenberg's reference is to the dying of the Old Age and the dawning of the New Age--without God. The Golden Dawn.
On Stauffenberg's desk is the reaper with scythe, the symbol of Saturn. This is an allusion to the Fraternitas Saturni, the Gnostic-Luciferian Brotherhood of Saturn occult society, and a continuation of the theme of God as the suppressor of man's gnosis and evolution.
From Fire and Ice:
"The great storm-cloud broke over the Fraternitas Saturni and all other Masonic and quasi-Masonic lodges in Germany on January 30, 1933, when Adolph Hitler, Fuhrer of the NSDAP, too the oath as chancellor of Germany. By the next Month emergency powers had been invoked and many groups thought to be as a subversive nature, from Communists to Masons, were suppressed. This began a process in which secret societies and occult orders of all kinds began to be systematically suppressed." (p.23)
The bomb went off on the second try but didn't kill Hitler; from then on the plan fell apart. On the radio we hear Hitler refer to "The hand of providence directing me to complete my work."
Stauffenberg and his fellow conspirators are taken outside to be executed by firing squad.
Just before being shot, Stauffenberg shouts, "Long live sacred Germany!"
These final words of the film tell us what the conspirators are really fighting for, the reue plot of the film.
"The idea of a noble Germany, uncorrupted by racial inferiors and alien philosophies, a Germany that would be led by a world figure, was not invented by Hitler. Long before he came along, the simple word Führer - leader - had been turned into something messianic..."
"It is ironic that Stauffenberg's son should have been contemptuous of the notion of Tom Cruise playing his father, on the grounds that he is a cultist, because Claus Schenk von Stauffenberg and his two brothers, Berthold and Alexander, were themselves members of a cult that formed around a mythical secret Germany; their master was the poet Stefan George. George is a sinister figure, but in an American newspaper article of the 1920s he was rated one of the most important men in the world. Hardly remembered and little read today, he was a poet who rivalled Hölderlin and Schiller in his fame."
"Stefan George's poem "Secret Germany" was the inspiration for Stauffenberg's oath of mutual intent for the conspirators, which was typed by his brother Berthold's secretary:
'We want a new order which makes all Germans responsible for the state and guarantees them law and justice; but we despise the lie that all are equal and we submit to rank ordained by nature. We want a people with roots in their native land, close to the powers of nature, finding happiness and contentment in the given environment, and overcoming, in freedom and pride, the base instincts of envy and jealousy. We want leaders who ... are in harmony with the divine powers and set an example to others by their noble spirit, discipline and sacrifice.'"
Quite a revealing oath. Why wasn't that in the film?
Valkyrie isn't really a corruption of a historical event, it's more of the occulting of the underlying Gnostic-Luciferian ideology propagating the events: sons of God falling from Heaven, the giants of Genesis, the men of renown/heroes, the royal bloodline, and the creation of a New World Order.
