The Greek mythological story of Prometheus is the god Zeus plotted to destroy humanity by depriving the earth of fire. He was a member of the earliest race of gods called Titans. Prometheus, who had fashioned man out of clay, saved humanity by teaching man how to use fire this is the same allegory of stealing fire or knowledge from the Gods, and giving it to humans, thus angering God. Thus Prometheus occutly signifies Lucifer.
“He is Prometheus, the friend of men, who gave them fire, taught them all the crafts, showed them the rich ore and precious stones buried in the earth, and so forth. It is for these countless benefactions conferred on humanity that the jealous spirits who claim to be true gods have combined against him and wronged him. He is [to the pagan] the brightest angel unjustly cast out of heaven, Lucifer, son of the morning.” – Warren Weston, Father of Lies (London: N.p., 1930s) 29
“The allegory of Prometheus, who steals the divine fire as to allow men to proceed consciously on the path of spiritual evolution, thus transforming the most perfect of animals on Earth into a potential god, and making him free to take the kingdom of heaven by violence. Hence also, the curse pronounced by Zeus against Prometheus, and by Jehovah against his ‘rebellious son,’ Satan.”-Helena Blavatsky The Secret Doctrine volume 2 (page 244)
“Man wandered hopelessly in the gloom of mortality, living and dying without light or understanding in his servitude to the Demiurgus and his host of spirits. At last the spirit of rebellion entered the creation in the form of Lucifer, who in the guise of a serpent tempted man to revolt against the mandates of Jehovah (the Demiurugs). In Greece this character was known as Prometheus, who brought from the gods the impregnating flame that would release the life latent in this multitude of germlike potentialities.”-Manly P. Hall Lectures on Ancient Philosophy (page 163)
