Rihanna “The Illuminati Princess”: Pushing the Satanic Agenda
April 7, 2012 By 304 Comments
R&B superstar Rihanna, the self-proclaimed “Princess of the Illuminati” sent a bizarre tweet in which she cursed out Satan. The tweet, (which can be seen here) states: “F– YOU SATAN! F— RIGHT OFF!!” What makes this bizarre rant even more interesting is that Rihanna has been a promoter of satanic and occult ideas and imagery in her music and videos since the onset of her career. As will be shown, whether an official member or not, Rihanna has been of the biggest stars pushing the Illuminati satanic agenda for years.
Good Girl Gone Bad – Rihanna’s Entrance into Satanic Illuminati Entertainment
With a unique voice, Caribbean influenced sound and overt sexuality, Rihanna has catapulted to the top of the music industry. A protegé of Freemasonic and occultic rapper Jay-Z, she wasted no time declaring her influence in society was going to be negative.
Rihanna’s album Good Girl Gone Bad, chronicles just what the title states: Rihanna’s transformation from a good, morally inclined young girl, to a bad girl, who promotes sexual immorality, lust and violence. The video for her first hit single, Umbrella, was heavy in occult symbolism. The symbolism used should not be understated. Manly P. Hall, considered one of the greatest Freemasonic philosophers and an expert on the occult (in addition to being a Luciferian) said this with regard to symbolism in society:
Symbolism is the language of the Mysteries; in fact it is the language not only of mysticism and philosophy but of all Nature, for every law and power active in universal procedure is manifested to the limited sense perceptions of man through the medium of symbol. Every form existing in the diversified sphere of being is symbolic of the divine activity by which it is produced. By symbols men have ever sought to communicate to each other those thoughts which transcend the imitations of language.The “Mysteries”, a reference to the Mystery Religions, or ancient pagan religions and occult practices, are expressed through symbolism. Hall then states that “divine ideas” have been chiefly expressed, hidden and passed on to future generations through symbols, rather than language so that most people in society would never be able to understand or even notice their meaning. And the “secret doctrine” of the occult – the grand goal of all of the ancient religions, is hidden in symbols.
Rejecting man-conceived dialects as inadequate and unworthy to perpetuate divine ideas, the Mysteries thus chose symbolism as a far more ingenious and ideal method of preserving their transcendental knowledge. In a single figure a symbol may both reveal and conceal, for to the wise the subject of the symbol is obvious, while to the ignorant the figure remains inscrutable. Hence, he who seeks to unveil the secret doctrine of antiquity must search for that doctrine not upon the open pages of books which might fall into the hands of the unworthy but in the place where it was originally concealed. “The Secret Teachings of All Ages”, p. 38.
Rihanna promoted some of these symbols in her first major video:
Here Rihanna is naked posing inside of a pyramid.
The pyramid represents the “age of the gods” and the grand mission of the Illuminati/New Age Movement which is to return to the age “of the gods.” It also represents the home of the dying and rising god. Known as “Hiram Abiff” in freemasonry, or by Osiris among other names, in esoteric circles, this figure will once day return, unlocking the full power of the mystery religions allowing man to once again have all of the mystical knowledge to become god-like and immortal. 33rd degree Freemason and author, George Steinmetz wrote in the book “Freemasonry: Its Hidden Meaning” that the pyramid “symbolizes the perfect or divine man“ (p. 63). Steinmetiz even goes on to wrongly quote the Bible to promote this man-as-god heresy: “Be still — and know — that I am God … That I AM GOD — the final recognition of the All in All, the unity of the Self with the Cosmos — the cognition of the DIVINITY OF THE SELF!” (Steinmetz, The Lost Keys of Freemasonry, p. 92).
This of course is blasphemy against God and nothing but Satanic deception. In the Garden of Eden, the Devil tempted Eve to eat the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of Good and Evil, even though God had forbid her from eating it “lest she die.” Satan twisted God’s words and said “And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.” Humans are created beings and God alone is the Creator. We will never be God and in fact our all sinners in God’s eyes.
From the Bible’s standpoint the Illuminati’s plan is nothing more than a desire to return to the ante-deluvian world — the world as it was before the flood of the Noah’s Ark account. At that time, fallen angels were permitted to interact with humanity and in disobedience, took human women as wives (referred to in occult circles as “the fusion of opposites”) and created super-human offspring called the Nephilim. The pyramid marks the return to that age and the plan to achieve it, with its capstone, often referred to as the “eye of Horus” or “eye of Lucifer” representing the final piece to bring that era into being.
One of the more popular uses of the pyramid symbol is on the back of the U.S. one dollar bill.
As seen above the words in Latin read: “He favors our undertakings of a New Order of the Ages.” This New Order, also known as the New World Order, is the one world governmental system that the Bible prophesies will be led by the Antichrist in the end times, the final years before the Second Coming of Christ. And as can be seen, the date of 1776 in Roman Numerals coincides with the founding of the original order of the Illuminati (May 1, 1776) and the “He” that is being referred to is not the God of the Bible, but the All Seeing Eye of Lucifer. If all this seems like it may be “reading too much into things” ask yourself: why is this symbol one the dollar bill to begin with? And why do pop artists keep putting it in their videos?
Here Rihanna is again is posing in the pyramid with her body position in a Baphomet-style pose.
Below is one of Rihanna’s first major performances of Umbrella on live TV.
The Illuminati/Occult Symbols abound. Rihanna performs inside of a pyramid of light dressed in a hooded cloak, with hundreds of pyramids behind her. Once again, the satanic Illuminati symbolism in her performance are clear.
One of Rihanna’s next big hits was for the song Disturbia. In the video Rihanna and her backup dancers are depicted suffering from demon possession. We covered the use of a demon possession theme in our article “Nicki Minaj, Beyonce and the Cult of Demon Possession” and how it is a real occurrence detailed in many Bible accounts. Demons, also known as unclean spirits in the Bible, have no bodies and use the bodies of people as habitations. Here some of the lyrics:
What’s wrong with me?
Why do I feel like this?
I’m going crazy now
No more gas, in the red, can’t even get it started
Nothing heard, nothing said, can’t even speak about it
On my life, on my head, don’t wanna think about it
Feels like I’m going insane, yeah
It’s a thief in the night to come and grab you
It can creep up inside you and consume you
A disease of the mind, it can control you
It’s too close for comfort
Release me from this curse I’m in
Trying to maintain but I’m struggling
If you can’t go-o-o
I think I’m gonna ah, ah, ah, ah
The “disease of the mind” that is a “curse” is demon possession. And dabbling in the occult, witchcraft or listening to demonic music can invite these forces into one’s life. Spirits can move unseen. During Jesus’ time on Earth, demonic activity was rampant and He demonstrated his power over them:
And when he was come to the other side into the country of the Gergesenes, there met him two possessed with devils, coming out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no man might pass by that way. And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time? And there was a good way off from them an herd of many swine feeding. So the devils besought him, saying, If thou cast us out, suffer us to go away into the herd of swine. And he said unto them, Go. And when they were come out, they went into the herd of swine: and, behold, the whole herd of swine ran violently down a steep place into the sea, and perished in the waters.” – Matthew 8:28-32Not only do the demons fear Jesus, they know exactly who He is. It is through Jesus Christ, the Son of God, that one can gain victory over demonic influence.
Beware of Satanic Influence
The Bible is clear that the human mind is very open to outside influence. And by putting things that are evil or even demonic or satanic into your mind every day through music, movies or other entertainment, it is working to move God out. Because of sin, humanity’s nature is not good, it is sinful. Society likes to say that people should just “follow their heart.” But the Bible reveals the truth about our hearts: ” The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” (Jeremiah 17:9). So our hearts can readily deceive us and keep us in sinful, ungodly behavior and lifestyles. The further we are from God, the closer we are to Satan and his influence. And without God’s Holy Spirit that comes through faith in Jesus Christ, a person’s spirit is not good either:
“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour” – 2 Peter 5:8
Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air [Satan], the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others. – Philippians 2:2-3In our natural state, we are hostile to God and follow our own lusts and desires. We do not worry about sin and violating God’s laws. Satan wants to keep people that way so they will go to hell. And music is important because it provides a path directly into the mind. In the Bible King David was able to remove a demon that was possessing King Saul through peaceful music. So there is a strong spiritual component to what we listen to. And music that is focused on sex, demons, violence and depraved behavior invites all sorts of spiritual activity. Rihanna is one of the biggest mega-stars producing this.
Rihanna released a song called Russian Roulette which shows her being killed in various fashion, including graphic images of her being shot through the neck while underwater. Here are some of the lyrics:
Take A Breath, Take It Deep
Calm Yourself, He Says To Me
If You Play, You Play For Keeps
Take The Gun, And Count To Three
I’m Sweating Now, Moving Slow
No Time To Think, My Turn To Go
And You Can See My Heart, Beating
Oh You Can See It Through My Chest
And I’m Terrified, But I’m Not Leaving
Know That I Must Pass This Test
So Just Pull The Trigger
As My Life Flashes Before My Eyes
I’m Wondering Will I, Ever See Another Sunrise?
So Many Won’t Get The Chance To Say Goodbye
But It’s Too Late To Think Of The Value Of My Life
This song is clearly depicting and promoting suicide. Again what spirit is behind a song like this? Could someone who loves God, righteousness, virtue and purity make a song or video that encourages suicide? No. God says in the Book of Proverbs: “For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the LORD. But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death.” (Proverbs 8:35-36). Not only is this song glorifying death as it depicts Rihanna being killed in repeatedly gruesome fashion, it is encouraging the listener to kill themselves.
As the reaction to the controversial video took to the social media world, singer/songwriter Tiffany Evans, was the first industry “insider” to comment on the Satanic influence in Rihanna’s music. She tweeted:
“Russian Roulette= Suicidal Rate gon sky rocket!
You gotta watch what u say. Because there are a lot of weak people in the world. They are susceptible to anything so anything you say or do some people actually do listen. So make sure its nothing bad. Its okay to be deep,but not murder deep.
Man! I really wish I could tell you guys what the industry really is and what stars are apart of destroying this world. The stars who worship satan,and those who have killed to get the respect they have now. You’d be verrrry surprise. Some of your favorite people pretend to worship God but they only do that to save face. Or seem innocent.
Satan was head of music in heaven. He uses influential people…to help influence the world. Think about that. Once u make a certain amount of money. Just know that that’s when they ask u to join. To get in you have accept the beast, worship. Once you join they assist u with ur career.make u huge.only if u agree and obey to destroy Gods word.and his children.
Ppl listen and pay attention. Its a war going on right now between Good and Evil. Evil will rule this world for a min. The people that have this power are the people that RULE the whole world. I’m done I won’t say anymore before I get in trouble.” (source)
R&B singer Omarion also commented on the video:
“I don’t personally know Rihanna’s beliefs but I think there’s a very dark and very sinister part of the entertainment business and I think it’s very visible,” he said. “This is something that a lot of people don’t look at [but for example] Michael Jackson used to be a Jehovah’s Witness and I remember hearing that he wanted to separate from the religion — and this was during the time that he was doing ‘Thriller’ [which ended up being] his biggest album.”
“Fast forward to now,” Omarion continued, “[and] it really made me think that there is a [time as an artist] where there’s going to be a choice. The [entertainment] world [dictates] that you have to be with three or four women, or do this in order to get that [and] I think it’s really interesting. With God and the industry, it’s really dark. The dark side is having to get in, there’s a certain submission you need to have. Just like a gang [initiation], so to speak. You might have to do something against your moral code. I’m not saying that it’s always this way, but when you’re someone that is young and you’re coming up in the industry and you really don’t have a grip on your morals it can be very dark. The game is just about over saturation.
“I don’t know if Rihanna [has fallen victim to those pressures]. I’ve never really heard her speak about it,” he said. “I hope that she doesn’t believe in that stuff and I don’t think that she does, but I don’t know. It’s not just been a Rihanna thing, [there's has been religious speculation] about a lot of artists.” (source)
S&M – The Illuminati Sexual Agenda
Rihanna continued her promotion of the most sinful, vile behavior with her song S&M. It is important to remember that this is an artist who sells millions or records to young people all over the world. Children recite her lyrics and listen to her songs on a regular basis.
Love is great, love is fine
Out the box, out of line
The affliction of the feeling
Leaves me wanting more
Cause I may be bad
But I’m perfectly good at it
Sex in the air
I don’t care
I love the smell of it
Sticks and stones
May break my bones
But chains and whips
The video, banned in 11 countries, features all sorts of scenes of sado-masochism in addition to numerous gratuitous sexually suggestive images. Satan, who has known humanity’s weaknesses since the Garden of Eden, has used the lure of sex as a tool of seducing people into sin for centuries. And flooding the minds of viewers with absurd sexual images with songs that encourage it is just an easy to continue to poison the minds of the listeners. And this increase the hostility towards any call for morality or goodness. The Bible says: “But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: 4In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.” The “god of this world” is Satan. He is presently permitted to offer his system of sin and offer it to humanity. And it is no surprise that this is leading more and more people away from God.
The Illuminati Plan
“As political and economic freedom diminishes, sexual freedom tends correspondingly to increase. And the dictator will do well to encourage that freedom…it will help to reconcile his subjects to the servitude which is their fate.” — A Brave New World, Aldus Huxley.The above quote was written in the preface of the novel in 1932. The book depicted a future society in which the population is completely controlled, natural reproduction has been banned altogether and a global government rules over the entire planet. In addition to being an author, Aldus Huxley was a member of the globalist Committee of 300, an American/British secret society comprised of members of the British Royal Family, business and political leaders from both Europe and America. And notice how important sexual activity is. Those in esoteric and political societies devoted to a New World order have emphasized the need to sexualize the youth and children as well as remove Christian and Biblical values out of society. The destruction of the traditional family is the key to being able to brainwash the public into accepting the New World Order agenda.
Pop music has been at head of this movement, as more and more scantily clad female artists push all sorts of sexual boundaries in their music videos, songs and performances. The sex drive is one of the greatest motivating forces on Earth. And an artist like Rihanna, who uses her looks to put herself in the most sexually provocative performances possible, helps to ramp up that desire in her fans. At the same time, she is giving females the message that sexual exploration, deviant behavior and violence are “fun” and exciting (of course never singing about HIV, herpes, abortions or the skyrocketing sexual abuse taking place among the youth). And the masses go wild for her, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Beyonce and others while rights and freedoms are taken away almost weekly.
Sexual promiscuity is a key tenet of Satanism: “Satanism condones any type of sexual activity which properly satisfies your individual desires –be it heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, or even asexual… Satanism also sanction any fetish or deviation which will enhance your sex-life…Transvestism, sadism, masochism, exhibitionism, to name only a few…,” The Satanic Bible, Anton LaVey, p. 67.
So whether you know it or not, the constant bombardment of the mind and senses with sexualized content is affecting your mind and soul. And numerous studies on the effects of internet porn support this. What is thought of as “liberation” is actually a tool for enslavement. The Bible says: “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,” So at its core, what Rihanna is promoting is satanic. The Bible says that the rejection of God, the promotion of self as “god” and sexual immorality go hand in hand:
“Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.” (Romans 1:21-27).When we embrace sin and think we can live life outside of God’s laws, it leads to the heart becoming corrupted and a person elevating themselves, or animals or other people into the place of God in their lives. And if someone keeps rejecting God, God will let that person’s conscience decay, allowing the person to fall into sorts of sexual sins and “vile affections.”
Rihanna The True Illuminati Princess
Rihanna has responded to critics by stating that she does not know anything about the Illuminati and is not a member. This article is not accusing her of sitting in rooms with the Committee of 300 planning world domination. What it is asserting is that she is just a valuable pawn in a much bigger plan to bring the new world order to the planet. This plan is being carried out by various groups but at its top levels, it is spiritual. Satan, his fallen angels and demons have their “tares” they have planted in the Earth to carry out their plans. And through demonic influence, can get unwitting volunteers into their agenda as well. Regardless of what groups different stars belong to, the Bible says it is the spiritual forces that are the true enemies of a Christian:
“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities [angels], against powers [spirits], against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” — Ephesians 6:12
Despite Rihanna’s denials, there is no doubting that when her actions are examined, she has been one of the biggest promoters of raunchiness, sexual promiscuity and sinful rebellion in pop culture. In the video for her recent single: You Da One, in which she rubs her crotch no less than 25 times in graphic fashion, Rihanna wears an outfit depicting her as Alex, the main character in the Stanley Kubrick film “A Clockwork Orange” (a movie with heavy Illuminati symbolism). A Clockwork Orange depicts a futuristic, New World Order society where the main character Alex relishes in extreme violent assaults and sexual attacks on women.
So it could be that Rihanna is now coming to grips with who she has truly been serving and lashed out at Satan. The Devil will always betray his minions because ultimately he wants to destroy all people and bring them to Hell with him. But cursing at Satan in a tweet will not save her. True salvation comes by believing in Jesus Christ. Do not be deceived. There is a spiritual war being waged and the prize is the souls of humanity. The good news is that all of the demons, fallen angels and Satan himself, cannot threaten or defeat Jesus Christ. The Son of God has already won freedom from sin and eternal life for all of those who believe in Him. By Jesus dying on the cross and rising back to life, He took the punishment for humanity allowing us to have the chance to escape hell if we believe in Him.
If you are not a born again Christian, it should be clear that there are forces at work that seem to be promoting sin in a major way. And sin is what is separating us from God and keeps us linked to Satan’s plan, which is to bring all people to Hell. But Jesus Christ leads to free forgiveness to get right with the Lord (for more information on how to make sure you are going to Heaven, see here). It all comes down to choice. We choose to sin. We choose to rebel. We choose to elevate celebrities to god-like status and let Satan delude us into thinking we can behave however we want with no fear of God. And so we must choose to recognize our sin and seek forgiveness from the real and true God who is in Heaven. And for those who are Christians, repent of supporting this sinful music and pray Rihanna will realize that God is ready and waiting to forgive her as well.
“Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13).
Jennifer Lopez To Produce Lesbian Adoption Sitcom for ABC Family Channel
October 21, 2012 By 15 Comments
“ABC Family says it green-lighted a series pilot from Jennifer Lopez’s production company about a lesbian couple and their diverse family.Jesus Christ defined Biblical marriage:
ABC Family said Thursday the comedy-drama pilot, titled “The Fosters,” is about two women raising a “21st century,” multi-ethnic mix of foster and biological kids.
Lopez will be an executive producer for the hour-long project”. (source)
But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife; And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. — Mark 10:6-10.As Beginning and End detailed in our article on “The New Normal”, Hollywood continues with its agenda to redefine traditional marriage and repeatedly deliver this message to the minds of the public. A recent study In this case, it is going directly to a younger viewing audience as much of ABC Family’s viewership are children and teens.
Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! — Isaiah 5:20-21.Lopez, an outspoken supporter of gay marriage, is the latest celebrity to pay lip service to God while at the same time supporting what the Bible clearly outlines as sin (and this is less surprising in light of J. Lo’s reported involvement in the occult practice of Santeria, which we covered here). As with the historic announcement by President Barack Obama (dubbed by Newsweek Magazine as “America’s First Gay President”), putting celebrity star power behind this show only makes the star-worshiping public that much more eager to embrace the show’s ideas and support it. This is the outcome of when society rejects God, seeks to mock the Bible and remove any reference to Jesus Christ from the public eye.
One Millions Moms, a Christian advocacy group has organized an online boycott against the show:
“ABC’s Family Channel has several anti-family programs, and they are planning on adding to that growing list… Hollywood is continuing to push an agenda that homosexuality is acceptable when scripture states clearly it is a sin. As Christians, the Bible also says that we must speak up against sin. If we remain silent then we are guilty of sin also.” (source)Pray For Repentance
But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. – 2 Corinthians 4:3-4.Pray for Lopez and the ABC Family Channel to reconsider their role in the attack on traditional family values and for the Gospel and God’s ways to take hold in their hearts. And pray for Christians to not support shows that run contrary to Biblical principles and to continue to share the Bible’s truth and the Gospel in a spirit of love.
Rihanna’s ‘Where Have You Been’ Video: More Illuminati Symbolism
May 5, 2012 By 106 Comments
In our first article on Rihanna (“Rihanna The Illuminati Princess: Pushing the Satanic Agenda”), we detailed how throughout her career, Rihanna has been a promoter of sinful rebellion, promiscuity, sexual deviance and satanic imagery. Her streak continued with her latest video for her single “Where Have You Been.” A dance club song about hooking up for fornication, the video reveals much darker imagery in line with the Satanic Illuminati symbolism of past Rihanna performances. Here is the video:
The Beast Emerges From The Sea
As we noted before, Rihanna repeatedly promotes overt sexual promiscuity in her video. Where Have You Been opens with a topless Rihanna wearing body paint and pasties to look as if she has scales of a sea creature. She emerges from a lake as a mermaid-like sea creature. The video is trying to establish that Rihanna’s character is not entirely human. The imagery is similar to that of the vision of the Antichrist the Apostle John sees in Heaven as recorded in the Bible’s book of Revelation.
And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. – Revelation 13:1
The Antichrist, the satanically-empowered False Messiah of the end times, is a man, but is also referred to as “The Beast” indicating he may not be entirely human (more on that below). It is also interesting that Rihanna is made up to resemble the mermaid. In mythology mermaids were fish-human hybrids and said to be related to Dagon, the god of the Canaanites and Philistines in the Bible. The Philistines were heated enemies of God and ancient Israel, God’s chosen nation to bring His message to the world. The Bible records a time when the Philistines stole the ark of the covenant, the most holy item in Israel. It was a box that contained the 10 commandments, the rod of Moses and manna, the bread which came from Heaven to feed the Israelites in the wilderness. The Philistines, wanting power for themselves, stole it:
When the Philistines took the ark of God, they brought it into the house of Dagon, and set it by Dagon. 3 And when they of Ashdod arose early on the morrow, behold, Dagon was fallen upon his face to the earth before the ark of the LORD. And they took Dagon, and set him in his place again. 4 And when they arose early on the morrow morning, behold, Dagon was fallen upon his face to the ground before the ark of the LORD; and the head of Dagon and both the palms of his hands were cut off upon the threshold; only the stump of Dagon was left to him. Therefore neither the priests of Dagon, nor any that come into Dagon’s house, tread on the threshold of Dagon in Ashdod unto this day. – 1 Samuel 5.As will always be the case, in the presence of the true God, the false gods of the occult fall.
The Third Eye of Illumination
At the climax of the video, Rihanna, moving in slow motion has several images of herself emerge from her body, indicating that the spiritual imagery in the video has begun. In the photo above, Rihanna, along with multiple images of herself raises her head back as if in worship and a light with the Third Eye of illumination on her forehead shining. Manly P. Hall, 33rd Degree Freemason and one of the greatest occult researchers of all time, writes:
The exact science of regeneration is the Lost Key of Masonry, for when the Spirit Fire is lifted up through the thirty three degrees, or segments of the spinal column and enters into the domed skull, it finally passes into the pituitary body (Isis), where it invokes Ra (the pineal gland) and demands the Sacred Name. Operative Masonry, in the fullest meaning of the term, signifies the process by which the Eye of Horus is opened..In the human brain there is a tiny gland called the pineal body, which is the sacred eye of the ancients, and corresponds to the third eye of the Cyclops. Little is known about the pineal body which Decartes suggested…might abode the spirit of man. – Manly P. Hall, Secret Teachings of All Ages, p. 227In the occult and New Age mysticism, such as Kundalini, the Third Eye symbolizes achieving inner enlightenment and accessing greater spiritual powers such as psychic ability, channeling spirits and out of body experiences. If this seems “out there”, consider the fact that there are thousands of sites on the internet today devoted to ways of opening the Third Eye. As the world moves more and more into New Age mysticism and the occult, the interest in activating the pineal gland had increase (the pineal gland is real and resides in the forehead. It is a gland that responds to light and initiates sleep). Opening the Third Eye is a concept that has resonated along many, many different cultures in history, from the chakra point to the Cyclops of Greek Mythology, who had the single eye on his forehead opened, symbolizing Third Eye illumination.
In Kundalini, the third eye is a “chakra point” that must be opened in conjunction with activating the pituitary gland. Yoga helps to achieve this occult ritual:
Shiva yoga is a form of yoga practice which concentrates on awakening the pineal gland. This gland is often dormant because our third dimensional self is usually focused on the outer sensate world rather than the higher spheres. Shiva yoga teaches that cosmic light descends to meet the individual through the optic thalamic nerve connection of the crown chakra. Once the Kundalini has risen to the pituitary gland, it merges with the cosmic light which the pineal gland has received in the third ventricle… The opened Third Eye is also known as the Middle Eye of Shiva, the Eye of Horus, and the Horn of the Unicorn. (source)According to occult experts like Manly P. Hall, symbols serve both as a message to the initiate and as a means of imbedding an image in the mind of the viewer. In certain voodoo rituals, the practitioner would dance to summon spirits to possess them. To no surprise the stylist for the video said they were going for a “voodoo feel.” In voodoo dance spells can be cast on someone by watching them and in voodoo beliefs, just touching the demon-possessed dancer can lead to harm. As with much of the occult, there are also sexual rituals involved as well and Rihanna brings her usual over-sexualized moves and gyrations to this video. In the image below, she writhes on the floor while her dancers lay on their backs with their legs spread.
Notice the throne sitting in the background. The women on their backs are facing it, the women standing up are dancing towards it and there appears to be a smoky image residing in the seat. Who is the throne for?
At 1:50 in the Where Have You Been video, Rihanna and her dancers form a pose of an eye with Rihanna in the center (B&E: Thanks to reader Banji for pointing this out):
Of course all of this effort to access spirits, attain psychic powers and perform rituals of “ascension” are the basics of witchcraft, which is strictly forbidden in the Bible:
“When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations. There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch. Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee. -Deuteronomy 18:9-12.God strictly forbade these practices as sin. They involve contacting evil spirits and rebellious fallen angels who are under the leadership of Satan. It is an invitation and evocation of demonic spirits to enter one’s life and body. The idea of occult enlightenment and awakening goes back to Satan (the “Light bearer”) and his initial offer of godhood to Eve in the Garden of Eden.
“Now the serpent was more [subtle] than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods…” – Genesis 3:1-5.Notice the devil twisted God’s commands and lied to Eve with the promise that she would not die, her eyes would be opened and that she would be a god. This has been Satan’s primary deception since the beginning of humanity.
This is why it was an abomination to God. The Philistines, the enemies of God who worshiped the fish-man god Dagon, were descendants of the half angel-half human Nephilim hybrids. Their leader was a giant named Goliath who was approximately 9 feet tall. Many are familiar with the Bible account of David and Goliath, but there are more details to notice. David, who in the Bible was a foreshadow of Jesus Christ, defeated Goliath (a foreshadow of the Antichrist) by hitting him with a stone in his forehead:
And the Philistine said to David, Come to me, and I will give thy flesh unto the fowls of the air, and to the beasts of the field. Then said David to the Philistine, Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied. This day will the LORD deliver thee into mine hand; and I will smite thee, and take thine head from thee; and I will give the carcases of the host of the Philistines this day unto the fowls of the air, and to the wild beasts of the earth; that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel. And all this assembly shall know that the LORD saveth not with sword and spear: for the battle is the LORD’s, and he will give you into our hands. And it came to pass, when the Philistine arose, and came, and drew nigh to meet David, that David hastened, and ran toward the army to meet the Philistine. And David put his hand in his bag, and took thence a stone, and slang it, and smote the Philistine in his forehead, that the stone sunk into his forehead; and he fell upon his face to the earth. (1 Samuel 17:44-49)The giant Goliath was killed by a stone to his forehead, the location of the occult Third Eye and like the statue of Dagon, he fell before David. It is also interesting to note that the Mark of the Beast that will be instituted by the Antichrist in the end times can be placed on the right hand or the forehead. Will there be a link to the Third Eye when it is being offered to the world?
Enter The Goddess
The final spiritual imagery of the video shows Rihanna with many arms. Even secular entertainment articles wrote that in this image she is mimicking the god Shiva, also known as The Destroyer, in Hinduism. Here is a statue of the many-armed god:
Notice that it is “Shiva Yoga” that opens the Third Eye. In the a list of “Internal Names” for Satan in the Satanic Bible, the name Shiva is listed. And in the Bible there is an evil angel in the bottomless pit of hell with a similar name: “And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.” (Revelation 9:11). Abaddon means “destroyer” in Hebrew.
Interestingly, Newsweek Magazine made a cover of President Obama looking like the god Shiva.
UPDATE — Rihanna’s American Idol Performance
During the finale of American Idol, Rihanna performed Where Have You Been and continued her use of occult imagery. As seen in the video below, she begins the performance in an illuminated pyramid capstone, a satanic symbol, as we detailed in our initial Rihanna article. Notice there is also an image of a pyramid capstone on the screen in the background as well as the three horizontal stripes used by her mentor Jay-Z on the cover of his Blueprint 3 album.
As the world moves closer to the end times, the paradigm shift to open society up to occult mysticism is being ramped up more than ever. Symbols and dances that would have startled Bible-literate Christians a century ago are now “just another hot video to dance to” for churches today, many of whom are even teaching yoga themselves. This is why sticking to the truths of the Bible is so important. Satan and his minions can influence the lost to promote his images and his religion to the world on a regular basis. The lure of “higher consciousness”, “spiritual ascension” and “divine light” never gets old.
But it is futile to try and ascend without God. It is just a distraction from the truth that we are created beings and sinners who are guilty in God’s eyes and need forgiveness. We can become at peace with God and receive eternal life. But it is done through Jesus Christ. If you are not a Christian, again we urge you to look at the numerous occult and sinful images being put out in society today and realize that there are forces that are battling for your soul. But Jesus Christ has defeated all of them. Which is why it just takes faith in Christ’s sacrifice for sins to receive Him:
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.” – John 6:47.
DmC: Devil May Cry 5 – Rise of Satanic Video Games
June 2, 2013 By 46 Comments
Dante, the game’s main character (and named as an homage to the poet Dante who penned the Divine Comedy, and specifically the poem ‘Inferno’ – the word inferno is Italian for hell), is explained in the game’s description: “Dante is the child of an angel named Eva and the demon Sparda, and seemingly hunts down other demons in the twisted shadows of Limbo City, while slowly coming to grips with his ethereal powers.” (source). In the game, he learns that a shadow figure named Mundus has killed his mother and seeks revenge. The game is filled with satanic and occult imagery as well as Illuminati symbolism.
Here is the trailer:
Anti-New World Order?
On its face the game seems to be about a battle against the New World Order and Illuminati. The villain in the game, Mundus, secretly wields all of the power in America. Through his control of international banks, he has forced debt upon corporations and politicians alike, making them his servants. He even has the President at his mercy (in the game’s opening scene he demands a trillion dollars from the President “by Friday” to which the President agrees). He monitors all of Limbo City through his CCTV camera system giving him full access to all activity and communications of all people real-time (a soon-to-be reality we explored in our article New World Order Surveillance Society – Building The All-Seeing Eye). His demon-empowered soft drinks have turned the masses into dumbed down, obese zombies.
He owns a news station which gives biased reports and information 24 hours a day. Entertainers, pop stars and celebrity athletes are mere pawns in his empire, controlled by demons to make entertainment for the world. Much of the game’s depiction matches the Illuminati conspiracies of today. Mundus is opposed by a secret society called The Order, who recruit Dante in their quest. And Dante, the game’s hero, upon learning that Mundus was responsible for his mother’s death is determined to take the evil mogul and his empire down.
While these plot points make the story seem like a simple story of good and evil, there is a much greater occult indoctrination at play.
“Symbolism is the language of the Mysteries; in fact it is the language not only of mysticism and philosophy but of all Nature, for every law and power active in universal procedure is manifested to the limited sense perceptions of man through the medium of symbol. Every form existing in the diversified sphere of being is symbolic of the divine activity by which it is produced. By symbols men have ever sought to communicate to each other those thoughts which transcend the imitations of language. Rejecting man-conceived dialects as inadequate and unworthy to perpetuate divine ideas, the Mysteries thus chose symbolism as a far more ingenious and ideal method of preserving their transcendental knowledge. In a single figure a symbol may both reveal and conceal, for to the wise the subject of the symbol is obvious, while to the ignorant the figure remains inscrutable. Hence, he who seeks to unveil the secret doctrine of antiquity must search for that doctrine not upon the open pages of books which might fall into the hands of the unworthy but in the place where it was originally concealed.” –Manly P. Hall, The Secret Teachings of All Ages p. 38
And as [Jesus] sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. – Matthew 24:3-4.
Satanic and Illuminati imagery abound in Devil May Cry. From the opening scene Dante drinks from a drink called “666.” In scripture, the number 666 is known as the number of the Beast, another term for the Antichrist – the satanically empowered, false messiah who will rule the world for the final 3 ½ years before the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. As part of his global domination, the Antichrist will establish an economic system called the Mark of the Beast, a mark that is placed in the right hand or forehead of every person on the planet. The Mark will be the only way any buying or selling of any item will be done in the world. It is described in Revelation Chapter 13:
And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. – Revelation 13:16-18.
The Mark will be enforced by penalty of death. And such a system clearly requires that the Mark have the financial data of every single person and can update it real time. While such a technology was inconceivable in the first century AD when Revelation was written, in today’s society, with RFID technology it is clearly feasible (for more information on the Mark please our article “666 – The Mark of The Beast: Humanity’s Ultimate Choice”).
Here the angel statue behind Dante’s bed is positioned to subtly symbolize that he is a Nephilim hyrbrid:
The Nephilim were evil and a part of Satan’s plan to destroy humanity, not save it (there will be more on this below).
Two posters for the rock group ‘Combichrist’ adorn Dante’s wall. Combichrist a Norwegian heavy metal band, took its name from a “punk rock messiah” character from a comic strip written by the band’s lead singer. This comic Messiah would attack people after consuming drugs and alcohol and then come back and heal them (a blasphemous reference to Jesus Christ).
Here are some of the lyrics to their song: Sent To Destroy (a song that is featured in Devil May Cry 5):
Iron boots, we’re walking tall
With pride we’ll walk all over you
Steel grip, we’ll hold you down
On a leash, we’re coming through
Hell on ice
Hell on ice
Your God sent us to destroy
Your God sent us to destroy (source).
Note the reference to a “Divine Inferno” and recall that inferno is the Latin term for hell. Hell is praised as being divine while Heaven is referenced as “burning” in a “sacrifice”. A prior album by the group was entitled ‘Today We Are All Demons.’ What spirit is behind this music? Ephesians 2 explains the spirit that operates today in the unsaved: “And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.” (Ephesians 2:1-3). The spirit of the “prince of the power of the air” is another name for the spirit of Satan. And the point of the passage is that those who are unsaved, who have faith in Jesus Christ and no fear of God, are operating under Satanic and demonic influence.
Combichrist was very involved in the production of the soundtrack for Devil May Cry. And this is the group that the “hero” and “Savior” has on his bedroom wall. Satan desires to blur the lines between right and wrong in order to introduce confusion and sin. But God makes the distinction clear: “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!” (Isaiah 5:20-21). Those who follow God and seek His righteousness (which is found through faith in Jesus Christ, the true Savior) are not to mingle with the forces of evil. And calling something good that is in fact evil, is sin.
Additionally there is a mode in the game Dante can enter to called “Devil Trigger”
The ability is described by the game’s Wiki:
Devil Trigger (often abbreviated as D.T.) is a special power possessed by demons and demonic hybrids which allows them to release their full supernatural potential. While in Devil Trigger, the user will assume their true form. In this form, many of the character’s physical and magical attributes are amplified, and the character may have access to upgrades or even additions to their normal abilities like flying or hovering. (source).Devil Trigger represents the ultimate power in the game. It is what players are told to aspire for. Rather than an enemy, it is satanic power that fuels Dante and his Nephilim demonic twin brother.
A Freemasonic checkerboard floor featured in the game:
A room with paintings of the all-seeing eye:
The Bible warns Christians to protect their mind and heart from satanic influence: “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.” (Proverbs 4:23). To those in the occult symbols carry a great power to communicate secret ideas as well as imprint an idea on the minds of the viewer. Spending countless hours playing the same game repetitively as video gamers do, is an easy way to make sure those occult images are well-ingrained.
Promotion Of The Occult
Dante’s sidekick in the game is a girl named Kat. Here is her description:
Kat is described as a spirit medium, with the ability to see and hear Limbo, able to interact with Dante wherever he may be. She uses her spray cans and stencils to create magical glyphs in the area, which serve several purposes, principal among them marking points from which Dante can escape from Limbo. (source).The above-referenced spray cans are filled with herbs and other items Kat concocts as part of witchcraft potions that provide her with magical powers. Dante regularly uses her abilities as a medium and wiccan practitioner to help with his missions. The Bible is clear that witchcraft is a sin:
There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch. Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee. – Deuteronomy 18:10-12.
Mediums communicate with demonic forces to use their “power” and this is a grave sin. Additionally the use of witchcraft or charms, are also forbidden by The Lord. But for the “good guys” in Devil May Cry and for the players of the game, these occult methods are all a part of the fight to save the world.
In describing her appearance the game wiki states: “The star tattoo on Kat’s forehead is also the location of the Third Eye, or Ajna, the brow chakra in dharmic traditions, responsible for spiritual consciousness and clarity of intuition. This plays into how Kat can see into the Limbo dimension, and otherwise see spirits, as a Medium.” The pineal gland or third eye is revered in the occult for its ability to help turn humans into god-like beings.
Christian News site Cutting Edge Ministries in their article on the Third Eye writes:
“For those who may not understand what the Third Eye is, occultists believe that a spiritual eye — called the Pineal Gland – exists right between the forehead, just waiting to be “opened” by the person achieving “higher consciousness”. The women of India depict this Third Eye by a dot in their foreheads. Occultists teach that, if a person were truly to achieve the highest degree possible in consciousness, this Third Eye would actually open physically, so all could see it. .. Albert Pike also taught the Third Eye, called Blazing Star. “… the Blazing Star [Pentagram] in our Lodges, as we have already said, represents Sirius, Anubis, or Mercury, Guardian and Guide of our Souls. Our ancient English brethren also considered it an emblem of the Sun. In the old lectures they said: ‘The Blazing Star or Glory in the centre refers us to that Grand Luminary, the Sun …the Blazing Star has been regarded as an emblem of Omniscience, or the All-seeing Eye, which to the Ancients was the Sun” [Morals and Dogma, p. 506;)." (source).Opening the Third Eye is yet another tool of witchcraft to contact the demonic realm. And the game promotes it as a helpful in the battle against evil. This is the subtle deception of sin - while the gamer may think the game is against Satan, it is quietly promoting the many sinful methods of the occult.
Distorting God's Word – Satan’s Agenda
Now the serpent was more [subtle] than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. – Genesis 3:1-6.
“[Satan] was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.” – Jesus Christ, John 8:44.
Since the creation of humanity the Devil has used the twisting and altering of God’s Word to lure people into sin. The start of the deception of Eve in the Garden of Eden was done by simply taking part of God’s truth (God forbidding Adam and Eve from eating from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil) and inserting a lie (“Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? “ – when God had only forbidden one tree and given Adam and Eve free access to every other tree in the Garden). This initial twisting then led to an outright lie – that Eve would not die if she ate of the forbidden fruit, despite God already saying so. And in this modern era, the same tactics are being used. In DmC, the angellic mother of the Nephilim is named “Eva.” Rather than being seen as a rebellious, evil angel for having intimate relations with a demon, she is cast as the victim of discrimination – punished only for falling in love.
Beginning and End has detailed the Biblical account of the Nephilim, hybrid giants who terrorized humanity in the time before and after the flood. They were the offspring of rebellious, evil angels who took human women as wives:
And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.- Genesis 6:1-6.The Nephilim giants, inheriting the evil nature of their fallen angelic fathers, were Satan’s plan to corrupt the human gene pool, bring sin and evil into society and ruin the chance of the Messiah ever being born (for more on this please see our articles The Nephilim – Giants In The Bible and its sequel Bloodlines of The Nephilim – A Biblical Study). They spread so much evil on the Earth, that The Lord regretted ever creating man in the first place. They were also the reason for the global flood.
Yet in Devil may Cry 5, the Nephilim are the heroes. And rather than follow the Biblical account, Dante and his twin brother Vergil are the offspring of an angel and a demon. Demons in the Bible, also known as “unclean spirits” are evil beings that do not have bodies and wreak havoc by attacking or possessing human beings. During Jesus’ First Coming to earth, he encountered many demon possessed people. And not only did they acknowledge Him as the Son of God, they feared Him greatly:
The Bible forbids any mingling with demonic spirits: “Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.” (1 Corinthians 10:21). In Devil May Cry demons can be heroes or even prophets (in the case of a character named Phineas who helps Dante).
And there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried out, Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art, the Holy One of God. And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him. And when the unclean spirit had torn him, and cried with a loud voice, he came out of him. And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned among themselves, saying, What thing is this? what new doctrine is this? for with authority commandeth he even the unclean spirits, and they do obey him. And immediately his fame spread abroad throughout all the region round about Galilee. – Mark 1:23-28.
Rather than put any focus on Jesus Christ, DmC makes the Nephilim hybrid the savior of humanity. In the game, Dante and his brother are the only beings capable of defeating the demon king, Mundus. So rather than being a satanic threat to humanity, the Nephilim are the way of salvation for the world in Devil may Cry.
The Spirit Realm
In Devil May Cry Dante and his cohorts enter “limbo” a dimension where they can see and fight demons (who are invisible to normal humans). The Bible informs us that there truly is a spirit realm where angels and other spirits exist invisible to the human eye. In 2 Kings Chapter 6, Scripture provides a glimpse into its operation. At that time Syria was at war with Israel and Elisha was able to provide the King of Israel with intelligence on their enemies as he was supernaturally learning the battle plans of the Syrian forces. So Israel was able to evade defeat on several occasions. Soon the Syrian King learned that the prophet was the “spy” and sent a military detachment after him:
And one of his servants said, None, my lord, O king: but Elisha, the prophet that is in Israel, telleth the king of Israel the words that thou speakest in thy bedchamber. And he said, Go and spy where he is, that I may send and fetch him. And it was told him, saying, Behold, he is in Dothan. Therefore sent he thither horses, and chariots, and a great host: and they came by night, and compassed the city about. And when the servant of the man of God was risen early, and gone forth, behold, an host compassed the city both with horses and chariots. And his servant said unto him, Alas, my master! how shall we do? And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them. And Elisha prayed, and said, Lord, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the Lord opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha. – 2 Kings 6:12-17.
When Elisha’s servant saw the Syrian forces coming he panicked. But Elisha reassured him that they were safe by praying to God to have the servant’s eyes temporarily “opened” to see the spirit realm and that a Godly angelic force surrounded them for their protection. Interestingly this heavenly host did not fight the Syrians. Elisha prayed for God to smite the soldiers with blindness and The Lord obliged. So it is probable that the angelic defense force was there to ward off demonic or fallen angelic attack.
The point to be taken here is that God is the source of spiritual revelation. Elisha was secure through his prayers and petitions to God. In Devil May Cry witchcraft is the source of spiritual revelation time and time again. Even for the good guys. And thus evil is called good and darkness is called light.
Foreshadow Of The Antichrist?
God the Father also plays no role in the world of Devil May Cry. While there are angels mentioned, with the presumption that they are “good guys”, never once is there a mention of God, Heaven, sin, repentance or righteousness. Dante’s character is always in rebellion. He drinks, curses, fornicates, goes to strip clubs and is generally disrespectful. In fact, his main weapon, his supernatural sword, is named “Rebellion.” But yet, he is the savior of humanity. In Scripture the Antichrist will also be viewed as the savior of the world and will blaspheme God:
And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. – Revelation 13:5-6.The Antichrist, like Dante will also have supernatural powers:
Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God…. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders.. – 2 Thessalonians 2:3-12.The Antichrist will literally perform supernatural feats before humanity. And his cohort, the False Prophet will perform miracles as well in order to move the world to worship the Antichrist as a god. This “strong delusion” will be one of the greatest deceptions the world has ever suffered. And the seeds of that deception or the “mystery of iniquity” is already at work. In 1 John, the Bible identifies the spirit of antichrist:
Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time. They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us. Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. – 1 John 2:18-22.
DmC denies Jesus Christ and places a Nephilim as the Savior. It promotes what God calls an abomination as good. And it twists the Bible’s words for its own purposes. As society moves farther from God, the church and the Holy Bible, it becomes easier to be lured into games such as Devil May Cry as “just entertainment” or “fun for the children.” But rather than just being simple challenges, video games today have become cinematic, with hours of scenes, dialogue and philosophies being taught in them. Here are a few other examples of games which promote the occult and sinful rebellion:
Dragon Age Origins: In this game God has turned his back on the world and heroes use witchcraft to return the world to paradise. There is a great deal of violence and explicit sex scenes which include homosexual relations. Occult techniques in the game include ” blood magic” in which players can sacrifice children, use blood for potions, have intimate relations with witches and even demons in exchange for the souls of others.
Dante’s Inferno: Another game named after the The Divine Comedy, the protagonist in this game goes into hell in order to resurrect his dead wife. It includes witchcraft, brutal violence, demons and scenes where the hero fights and kills “unbaptized babies.” One of the final missions features Satan in full frontal nudity.
Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne: In this game, the hero is a high school boy who survives the apocalypse and awakens transformed into a part-demon, part-human hybrid. His newfound powers and abilities were bestowed by Satan. He uses parasites to summon demonic power in order to fight his missions. Gameplayers are required to negotiate with demonic forces in order to fight battles. Lucifer is portrayed as a friendly, benevolent angel who can be your ally, while Yahweh, the God of the Bible is a “vain, dictator” who has no compassion and is referred to as “the true enemy.” In one of the prequels, the hero’s mission is to hunt down and kill the archangels Michael and Garbiel, both righteous, holy angels in the Bible. In Nocturne the goal is to recreate the world in one where God no longer rules and all people are led by “reason.”
Additionally, in Europe, this game is entitled: Shin Megami Tensei: Lucifer’s Call.
The Bible says Satan will use “any means” to deceive humanity. And pop culture has been one of the most popular means to introduce satanic ideas, the occult and rebellion against God into the minds and hearts of society. And it is not just movies, television and music. But video games as well. Do not be deceived. If you are a Christian and you play these types of games, it is time to repent. If you are not a Christian it should be clear now that there is an extensive effort to indoctrinate the gaming community into the occult. The closer you are to sin is the farther you are from God. Instead of putting faith in video games, believe the Gospel and know that eternal life and forgiveness of sins can be found in the true Messiah Jesus Christ. Your eternal fate is definitely not a game.
In our next installment we will examine the game series Assassins’ Creed.
Katy Perry’s Dad: “Katy Is A Child Of The Devil”
May 7, 2013 By 50 Comments
“They ask how can I preach if I produce a girl who sang about kissing another girl?” said Hudson of Keith Hudson Ministries, who admitted attending the singer’s sell-out concerts are a source of contention for him and his wife, fellow religious preacher, Mary Hudson. (source).In our article Katy Perry’s “E.T.” Lyrics And Video — Alien Deception Strikes Again, Beginning and End analyzed the satanic message behind Perry’s hit song E.T. in which she makes references to having intimate relations with a being who “could be the devil.” The song was just one example of the satanic and sinful spirit of Perry’s music. After starting her career as a contemporary Christian artist under her real name, Katy Hudson, Perry then switched to pop music and its lure of fame, wealth and media power. Perry’s initial hit song, I Kissed A Girl was an ode to lesbian experimentation that became a smash hit among the teen and pre-teen set. For a woman who claims to be Christian to make a song that is so blatantly promoting sin is a sign of a person who does not fear God nor have any concern for his judgments. And few things can blind a person more from seeing God’s ways than the lure of money.
The Bible says: “But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.” (1 Timothy 6:9-10).
Perry clearly erred from the faith by promoting homosexuality to the world and in particular children. As the years went on, Perry rose to multi-platinum status, becoming one of the most successful singers of all-time. All the while her music continued to celebrate sexual promiscuity and rebellion against authority. Perry also became renowned for wearing skimpy outfits and even appearing in naked in a video. Rather than sharing her “Christian upbringing” with the world, she instead chose to lead it into more sinful rebellion against The Lord. Her are some lyrics from her hit song: “Teenage Dream”:
No regrets, just love
We can dance until we die
You and I, we’ll be young forever
You make me
Feel like I’m living a
The way you turn me on
I can’t sleep
Let’s run away and
Don’t ever look back
Don’t ever look back
I’ma get your heart racing
In my skin-tight jeans
Be your teenage dream tonight
Let you put your hands on me
In my skin-tight jeans
Be your teenage dream tonight (source).
A song clearly targeted at teenagers and children, Perry sings of turning guys on and sexual sin. And in it she preaches a message of “no regrets” – emphasizing that there is no need for repentance or feeling bad about one’s behavior. The Bible says of sex outside of marriage:
Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. — 1 Corinthians 6:9-10.
Note that Scripture lists fornication, which is sex outside of marriage, first. Sexual lust is one of the strongest forces of temptation society faces. Having celebrities sing about it in their music while dressing in provocative fashion only further engrained it in the mind of the audience. This is why the Bible says: ”flee fornication.” But thanks to stars like Perry, pop culture has made fleeing harder than ever as entertainers happily promote sexual sin in exchange for the promises of wealth.
As we noticed before, Perry even referenced selling her soul to the devil in an interview:
Perhaps this is why Pastor Hudson now feels regret over his daughter’s career:
“I was at a concert of Katy’s where there were 20,000. I’m watching this generation, and they were going at it. It was almost like church,” Keith said. “I stood there and wept and kept on weeping and weeping. They’re loving and worshipping the wrong thing.” (source).Hudson and his wife have run Keith Hudson Ministries for 32 years. According to their Statement of Faith they preach a a brand of charismatic Christianity with a host of unbiblical practices like speaking in tongues (intelligible, gibberish tongues, not the speaking of actual foreign languages as done in the Bible), faith healing, prophecy and “working miracles.” When a pastor takes the position that he is a “modern day prophet” he is proclaiming to receive new revelations from God that are not in the Bible. This opens the door for all sorts of heretical beliefs and activities because the pastor can simply claim, “God just told me to say this.” Of course Scripture makes it clear that there are no more prophets today:
“God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;” – Hebrews 1:1-2.
Prior to the birth of Jesus Christ on Earth, God chose prophets to take His Word to the world. But today God speaks to us through Jesus Christ, The Word of God. So the Bible contains the full revelation from The Lord. Hudson’s doctrine adds to this with what is often called “fresh revelation.” So Perry with a foundation that was part Biblical, part man-made doctrine.
This would not be the first time a celebrity dad has voiced concern about the satanic influence over their child. Billy Ray Cyrus, father of Disney Channel TV star and singer Miley Cyrus, aka Hannah Montana, conducted an interview in which he said his family was under attack by Satan and blamed his daughter’s handlers for leading her career down a sinful path.
Pray for Hudson to continue to take a stand against the career path of his daughter and to turn to Biblical Christianity and repentance. And pray for Perry and her Christian walk, or for her salvation if she is unsaved. Lord willing, hearing from the singer’s own parents may wake up parents all over the world to start exerting their own spiritual leadership in their homes to lead their children to know God instead of being so familiar with Satan’s way and the music and entertainment of his minions.
Nicki Minaj, Beyonce and the Cult of Demon Possession
February 28, 2012 By 82 Comments
Right on the heels of Madonna’s Occult Ritual performance at the Super Bowl (which we covered in “Ye Shall Be as God: Madonna’s Super Bowl Occult Satanic Ritual”) , the Grammy’s Provided yet another occult ritual in the form of Nicki Minaj’s performance of “Roman Holiday.” While the performance has spawned tens of thousands of articles about whether it was an “Illuminati message” to the public or even somehow linked to the death of Whitney Houston, what can be said with certainty is that Nicki Minaj is among the many mega pop stars in music today who promote the idea of having alter egos, second personalities and “losing control of themselves” when this alter takes over. The Bible shows that this type of twisted behavior can really happen and often was the result of demonic possession or influence.
The Many Alter Egos of Nicki Minaj
As pop culture continues to sexualize women and young children, Nicki Minaj has been one of the worst influences on children and specifically, young girls, in a long time. Minaj, who created her stage name after a vulgar sexual act, has lured millions of young girls around the world to her music with her “Barbie”, bubble gum image. Her styling is aimed to project that she is a bubble gum cute girly girl as she is often wearing doll-type pink wigs and clothing. She also calls herself the “Black Hanna Montana” a reference to the Nickelodeon character portrayed by child star Miley Cyrus. However, her lyrics are far from G-rated. Her is a sampling from her smash hit song “Superbass“:
And he ill, he real, he might got a dealPlease note that just one entry of the video for this song on youtube has over 200 million views. This is a song that girls all over the world are listening to. Meanwhile Minaj then entices men with her overdeveloped (and rumored to be surgically enhanced) body, revealing outfits and X-rated lyrics. Here are some lines from her song Freaky Girl.
He pop bottles and he got the right kind of build
He cold, he dope, he might sell coke
He always in the air, but he never fly coach
He a m—in trip, trip, sailor of the ship, ship
When he make it drip, drip kiss him on the lip, lip
That’s the kind of dude I was lookin’ for
And yes you’ll get slapped if you’re lookin’ ho
Yes I did, yes I did
Somebody please tell him who the eff I is
I am Nicki Minaj, I mack them dudes up
Back coupes up, and chuck the deuce up
And I think I like him better with the fitted cap on
He ain’t even gotta try to put the mac on
He just gotta give me that look, when he give me that look
Then the panties comin’ off, off, unh
hmm You Want A Feaky Girl? Welcome To Nicki world. Umm Let Me Think(Please note that “brain” is a reference to fellatio). Nicki is bragging about her promiscuity (and nicknaming herself after Monica Lewinsky, the former White House intern who became infamous for her involvement in an adulterous sex scandal with President Bill Clinton). Again, please note that there are hundreds and hundreds of worse lyrics from Minaj’s music that will not be posted because of their vulgarity. We only post these as examples to highlight that millions of young girls and boys are listening to this music every day (in fact the internet was buzzing after a viral video of an 8-year old girl and her younger sister singing Super Bass went viral. The video became such a hit that the two girls were invited onto the Ellen DeGeneres Show to perform the song with Minaj). This rapper is constantly promoting the most X-rated, vile behavior possible to listeners (including her many lyrics promoting her bisexuality).
What Can I Do To Kick It Off How Bout I —–
What I Look Like Turning Down Some H–d
I Mean That’s Sorta Like A Bird Turning Down Some Bread.
You Can Eat It Like A Treat, You Can Squart it, You Can Skeet,
I’m A Freak I Love To Beat Just Don’t Get None In My Sheets.
But Every Time I Pop The C–i Gucci Start Chokin Me
Now I Kinda Scared I Got A Feelin Gucci Stalkin Me.
Sex Game Kinky, N—s Call Me Pinky

Very Freaky Girl Don’t Bring Her To Mamma
First You Get Her Name Then You Get Her Number
Then You Get Some Brain In The Front Seat Of The Hummer,

Jesus said this about children: “5And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me. 6But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.” The corruption of children with music like this is by itself satanic. Promoting the images, clothing and behavior of artists like Minaj, Lady Gaga or Beyonce is enticing children to sin and clearly this is something that God takes very seriously.
At the same time Minaj has utter hatred for other women rappers and constantly espouses violence and disrespect for any female rap competition or “haters”. What is just as disturbing is the way in which Minaj switches voices and accents all throughout her music at rapid-fire speed. She will go from rhyming with a New York accent to rapping verses in a faux-British accent or like a California Valley Girl, all giving the impression of someone who is possessed and suffering from multiple personality disorder. Here she is in an interview discussing her many personalities:
And here is another:
Promotion of Mind Control
Whether it’s by design or “inspiration’ Minaj and other music stars today seem to be using imagery and symbolism for programmed mind control. This article is not asserting that the artists have been mind-controlled themselves but they are certainly promoting it. Frtiz Springmeier, a Christian author, researcher and speaker, has written extensively about the Illuminati, New World order, satanic cults and their presence in modern politics and society. He has also written at length about mind control and specifically, “Project Monarch” an extension of the government mind control program called “MK-Ultra.” This program’s Wikipedia entry states:
Project MKULTRA, or MK-ULTRA, was the code name for a covert, illegal CIA human experimentation program, run by the CIA’s Office of Scientific Intelligence. This official U.S. government program began in the early 1950s, continued at least through the late 1960s, and used U.S. and Canadian citizens as its test subjects. The published evidence indicates that Project MKULTRA involved the use of many methodologies to manipulate individual mental states and alter brain functions, including the surreptitious administration of drugs and other chemicals, hypnosis, sensory deprivation, isolation, verbal and sexual abuse, as well as various forms of torture.
Springmeier writes that through the use of mind-control techniques, the subject can begin to form alter egos that can fully take over the consciousness of the person and act as a separate person altogether. And there is a spiritual nature to this programming as well:
Clear back in 1917, long before superman appeared in comics and movies, Aleister Crowley was writing about a Superman. The magical idea is to capture a soul from the 4th dimension. In the book Moonchild, the villa used to produce a Moonchild was called “The Butter-fly-Net”. The Monarch Project then which is named after the Monarch butterfly is also an allusion to the Moonchild project where Butterflies are an allusion to souls (what Christians call demonic spirits). The actual rituals carried out to create a Moonchild are described in detail in three of Crowley’s writings. A vague description of the rituals can be seen by reading the book ‘Moonchild’. The ritual took place at a villa nicknamed The Butterfly Net. (The Illuminati Formula to Create An Undetectable Total Mind Controlled Slave, Cisco Wheeler and Fritzspringmeier, p. 46)
As usual, the name of Satanist Aleister Crowley lurks in the background. Crowley, who referred to himself as “the Beast” (the Biblical title for the Antichrist) and “666″, in his writings encouraged torture and sacrifice for the gain of occult power and control the mind and soul of the victim (ibid. p. 47). Thus the alter-ego of the mind-controlled victim is at the control and enslaved to their “programmers.” So even in the formal area of mind-control techniques, it is just another means of contacting demonic spirits.
Here is Minaj, in her Barbie alter ego. Notice the blank stare of one who is not conscious and the presence of Monarch butterflies.
And another promo picture for Minaj filled with Monarch butterflies.
And the cover of Minaj’s first album, Pink Friday. Again, notice that she depicts herself as a doll with no arms and completely in a trance-like state.
Nicki also promotes her body (which numerous sites have alleged to be surgically enhanced) and looks to men and young boys.
The Grammy Performance
All this culminated with her performance at the 2012 Grammy Awards. From the time of her red carpet entry, it was clear Minaj was looking to make a spiritual statement.With an actor playing “the Pope” the stage was set her performance, the final one of the night. Dubbed “The Exorcism of Roman Zolanski”, it opened with Minaj sitting a Catholic confessional with a priest against displaying the look of someone who is demon possessed. She then sings the first few lines from her song Roman’s Revenge, which she sang with rapper Eminem (who also happens to have an alter ego called ‘Slim Shady’ that he describes as a different person inside of him.) The tape of the Grammy performance is below.
It then cuts to a film that plays out a scene from one of the many “girl possessed by demons” films of the past several years. Again, we see a deranged Minaj brushing her hair in the mirror (please remember this image). As the priest enters she crawls up the ceiling. The clear intention is to show that in this film she is demon possessed.
The Bible on Demon Possession
The Bible details demon possession through most of human history. The Book of Ephesians chapter 6 instructs that human beings are not the enemies of Christians, spiritual forces are: “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places“ (Ephesians 6:12). The principalities and powers are just formal titles for the hierarchy of rebel angels and demons that are under Satan’s leadership. Evil demonic spirit roam the Earth, have no bodily form, but are able to inhabit the bodies of certain people and control them. During the time of Jesus Christ on Earth, demonic activity was rampant. Jesus Christ encountered many people who was possessed by a demon, also known as a “devil” or “unclean spirit.”
And in the synagogue there was a man, which had a spirit of an unclean devil, and cried out with a loud voice, Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art; the Holy One of God. And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him. And when the devil had thrown him in the midst, he came out of him, and hurt him not. And they were all amazed, and spake among themselves, saying, What a word is this! for with authority and power he commandeth the unclean spirits, and they come out. And the fame of him went out into every place of the country round about. – Luke 4:33-37Jesus was not only able to address the demon inside of the man, the demon fully knew who Jesus was. Calling Jesus “The Holy One of God” was a title used for the Messiah (it is used in Psalm 89). And Jesus clearly has power over the demon. The demon’s agenda is clear, control of a person for their own use. Jesus described their plan saying: “When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first” (Matthew 12:43-46) . In another encounter, Jesus confronted a man who indeed was possessed by many demons:
And they came over unto the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes. And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit, Who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains: Because that he had been often bound with fetters [leg irons] and chains, and the chains had been plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: neither could any man tame him. And always, night and day, he was in the mountains, and in the tombs, crying, and cutting himself with stones. But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped him, And cried with a loud voice, and said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of the most high God? I adjure thee by God, that thou torment me not. For he said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit. And he asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many. (Mark 5:1-9)Here again, the demons know Jesus is the Son of God. Interestingly here we see the demons controlling the man’s behavior, so much so that he was breaking the chains people were using to restrain him. They were giving the man strength and making him act insane. In the Old Testament we see that demons can just be used to influence people. In the book of 1 Kings chapter 22, Ahab, the King of Israel who was wicked and worshiped pagan gods in defiance of the true God, wanted to join forced with King Jehosephat and go to war against the Assyrians. As the Kings conferred on their plan, 400 prophets of Ahab’s pagan gods came before the two Kings and predicted victory for them in battle. However, Jehosephat knew at that time the prophet Michaiah was a true prophet of The Lord and adjured Ahab to seek his counsel. Michaiah, not only told the evil King that they would lose in battle with the Syrians, he explains how he supernaturally received the prophecy:
And [Micaiah the godly prophet] said, I saw all Israel scattered upon the hills, as sheep that have not a shepherd: and the LORD said, These have no master: let them return every man to his house in peace. [indicating that the battle would be a failure resulting in the death of its leader]. And the [king Ahab] said unto Jehoshaphat, Did I not tell thee that he would prophesy no good concerning me, but evil? And he [the prophet Michaiah] said, Hear thou therefore the word of the LORD: I saw the LORD sitting on his throne, and all the host of heaven standing by him on his right hand and on his left. And the LORD said, Who shall persuade Ahab, that he may go up and fall at Ramothgilead? And one said on this manner, and another said on that manner. And there came forth a spirit, and stood before the LORD, and said, I will persuade him. And the LORD said unto him, Wherewith? And he said, I will go forth, and I will be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets. And he said, Thou shalt persuade him, and prevail also: go forth, and do so. Now therefore, behold, the LORD hath put a lying spirit in the mouth of all these thy prophets, and the LORD hath spoken evil concerning thee. 1 Kings 22:17-23In this passage, God, speaking to His angels, had determined that the wicked pagan King Ahab would fail in battle as part of his punishment and judgment for all of his sinful acts. After listening to suggestions from his Divine Council, a demon came forth and said that it would be a “lying spirit” in the mouths of the prophets of Ahab. Thus the prophesy from the occult prophets Ahab employed who said “you will be victorious in battle” were influenced by the demon who caused them to lie. Thus even without making their presence known, the Bible shows that demons can influence human beings to think and say certain things. All this points leads to 2 simple truths: 1) demons are not to be messed with. These spiritual beings have been living for millennia and are quite experienced. They serve Satan and can influence a person’s thoughts or even control them; and 2) They all are still obedient and completely subservient to God and the Son of God, Jesus Christ. Having Jesus Christ as your Savior. Being a born again believer, with the Holy Spirit indwelling you, provides protection from these spirits and the knowledge to avoid anything that in the occult, that could lead to contact with them. This is why the Bible says when you are a true Christian, “greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.” (1 John 4:4)
The Creation of an “Alter Ego”
Nicki Minaj made her Grammy performance a tribute to the spirit that is inside of her (as she describes it), Roman Zolanski. After the film clip of her being possessed, the stage show resumes with Minaj shackled to a wooden board, signifying that she has become so insane from the spirit in her she needed to be restrained (just like the man possessed by the demons called Legion in Mark chapter 5 above). And she sings the hook of the song:
Take your medication, RomanThe clear implication of the song is that the alter ego is insane. And as Minaj describes in her own interviews, that is precisely the case. What is interesting to note is that after taking over the hip hop world in 2009, certain critics and even members of her fan base were starting to allege that Minaj had gone too “commercial” and had lost the vulgar, angry and X-rated edge that made her such an instant success. Thus her new album, called “Roman Reloaded” was her effort to once again channel that spirit and thus achieve her monetary success. In discussing Roman’s “presence” on the album she said: “The new album is going to have a lot of Roman on it … And if you’re not familiar with Roman, then you will be familiar with him very soon. He’s the boy that lives inside of me. He’s a lunatic and he’s gay and he’ll be on there a lot.”
Take a short vacation, Roman
You’ll be okay
You need to know your station, Roman
Some alterations on your clothes and your brain
Take a little break, little break
From your silencing
There is so much you can take, you can take
I know how bad you need a Roman holiday (Roman holiday)
In Acts 16, the Apostle Paul encounters a young woman who “..a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying [telling the future]..” Once Paul cast the demon out of the young woman, her employers were furious because they were relying on the demonic inspiration to keep them making money. Minaj seems to be relying on the spirit of Roman for her own career boost. And that influence gives her the “freedom” to be as violent or vulgar as she wants to be. A depiction of her alter ego was on also on display during the video for “Monster” a song Minaj performed with Jay-Z, Kanye West and Rick Ross. The video, which depicts women hanging from nooses, necrophilia and torture, shows Minaj, in her Barbie alter ego, strapped in a chair, while her Roman Zolanski alter ego, baring fangs, prowls around her like an animal and raps “first off, I’ll eat your brain.” Again, Minaj states herself that these alter egos are being featured in the video.
Another Black Mass
The performance of the “Exorcism” then turns into what resembles a satanic ritual mass or “Black Mass.” We detailed the Black Mass in our article about Madonna’s 2012 Super Bowl Halftime performance (see, “Ye Shall Be As Gods: Madonna’s Super Bowl Satanic Occult Ritual“). The Black Mass is a magical ceremony and inversion or parody of the Catholic Mass that was indulged in ostensibly for the purpose of mocking God and worshiping the devil; a rite that was said to involve human sacrifice as well as obscenity and blasphemy of horrific proportions. The occult ceremony also involves vulgar sexuality. While Minaj’s performance was not replicating a Mass, it certainly mocked the church, Vatican, Catholic confessional and the use of an altar (the performance include scantily clad dancers, laying on the altar and straddling praying altar boys). Again, this is where demonic and evil spiritual influence can unwittingly guide an artist as this performance was disrespectful to God in the extreme.
The biggest blasphemy of the night was when the choir during the occult ritual mocked the Christian hymn “Oh Come, Oh Ye Faithful” and perverted the lyrics. The song, written about the birth of Jesus Christ, the prophesied and long awaited Messiah, on Earth, 2000 years ago in Bethlehem. It is one of the most revered and loved hymns in Christianity and is often sang during the Christmas season. The opening verse is written:
O Come All Ye Faithful
Joyful and triumphant,
O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem.
Come and behold Him,
Born the King of Angels;
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord.
The song is giving respect and honor to Jesus Christ and encouraging those who believe in Him (the “faithful”) to come and worship Him. The birth of Jesus Christ was the fulfillment of hundreds of Old Testament prophecies that a child would be born who would save humanity from damnation for our sins. In the Grammy Performance, the choir sang:
Oh Come All Ye Faithful,
Joyful and triumphant,
I am Roman Zolanski
Antichrist Generation: Tyler the Creator Leads Pop Music’s Open Blasphemy“). While the hymn is being sung, Minaj, attached to ropes, “levitates” high above the stage, again to give the signal used in many movies that she is demon possessed. And instead of speaking of the Messiah, Minaj inserted the name of her demonic alter ego, Roman Zolanski, into the song. This act is disrespectful to God and the Christian faith. The Bible says this about the name of Jesus:
Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (Philippians 2:5-11)The name of Jesus, God in the flesh, who came to Earth to save humanity from its own sin by His wiling sacrifice, is above all names. Yet, Minaj removed his name to instead, exalt a demon at the “climax” of her show. This blasphemous imagery is just what Satan wants. As long as people are comfortable and even entertained by this mockery of the faith, they will either grow to doubt, disregard or despise God, the Bible and Christianity altogether. Thus the Satanic/demonic influence goes beyond the artist and to their willing and adoring fans.
Who is Roman Zolanski?
Roman Polanski, the director of the very famous horror film, “Rosemary’s Baby”. In the movie, a young woman is manipulated by her own husband and a satanic cult to enter into a ritual to father the Antichrist. Anton LaVey, the founder of the Church of Satan and a friend of Polanski’s, was hired by to serve as technical director in the film, thus the rituals, symbols and incantations in the movie are based on actual satanic practices. The film also happened to be shot in the Dakota Building in New York City. This is the same building where a short time later, John Lennon of the Beatles would be shot by Mark David Chapman. Both men have been alleged to have connections to Satanic cults themselves and Lennon is on record reciting his belief in the principles of satanist Aleister Crowley (Lennon was also a friend of Polanski’s).
Shortly after the release of Rosemary’s Baby, Polanski’s wife, Sharon Tate, died in a satanic rituals at the hands of serial killer and Satanist Charles Manson (who Springmeier states was an Operation Monarch mind control slave himself). Seven years after Tate’s murder, Polasnki was arrested and charged with a number of offenses against 13-year-old Samantha Geimer, including rape by use of drugs, perversion, sodomy, lewd and lascivious act upon a child under 14, and furnishing a controlled substance to a minor (he fled the US and has lived in exile since). He also directed a movie called “The Ninth Gate” starring Johnny Depp, about a book dealer who becomes obsessed with an occult ritual book said to be authored by Satan himself. And this is who Minaj names her alter ego after, by her own words. The satanic connections are not to be underestimated as we know from the Bible that spirits can guide the minds of their victims. For a Christian to be listening or supporting this type of music is unthinkable. The Bible says to ” have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove [expose] them.” The Grammy performance was a very major work of darkness. Do not be deceived.
The Lady Gaga Connection
For all of Nicki Minaj’s supposed eccentricity and outrageous fashion, many have said that she is a more hip hop, African American version of Lady Gaga. Lady Gaga, in addition to heavily promoting occult and satanic imagery in her videos and performances, also promotes symbolism of Monarch Program mind control.
Notice that like Minaj, Gaga is completely disconnected and in a trance-like state. Her handler, standing behind her, asks her about her brain which she says in “his stomach” and references someone eating her brain (similar to Minaj’s line in the song Monster). This film is again clearly depicting the singer as being a victim of mind control. In addition, in several of Gaga’s videos, for songs such as Paparazzi and Telephone, Gaga is depicted as a mind-controlled assassin (whom Springmeier refers to as a “Delta mind control slave”), who murders her boyfriend and others.
We have chronicled the Satanic and blasphemous messages and symbols of Lady Gaga in our article about the video “Judas” (see “Lady Gaga’s Judas” Spreading the Occult Gospel“), in which we detailed how the song and video are extremely blasphemous and anti-Christian. Evil spiritual influence is all over the performances and lyrics of Gaga. So the “inspiration” for both artists leads back to attacking The Lord and the Bible through their “art.” Interestingly, the director of the ‘Judas’ video, LaurieAnn Gibson, was also the choreographer and director for Minaj’s Grammy performance.
Beyonce and Sasha Fierce
Sasha Fierce is the fun, more sensual, more aggressive, more outspoken side and more glamorous side that comes out when I’m working and when I’m on the stage.” Beyonce, Press Statement, October 2008Just as Minaj speaks in very glowing and literal terms about her alter egos, just a few years earlier, mega-star Beyoncé did the same thing with her alter ego, Sasha Fierce. Just like Minaj, Beyonce dedicated an album to her alter ego to let the world get to know “Sasha.” It was called “I Am….Sasha Fierce.” Here is Beyonce discussing her alter ego.
“I’ve created an alter ego: things I do when performing I would never do normally. I reveal things about myself that I wouldn’t do in an interview. I have out-of-body experiences [on stage]. If I cut my leg, if I fall, I don’t even feel it. I’m so fearless, I’m not aware of my face or my body.” Beyonce, Marie Claire interview, October 2008
Notice the eerie similarity in description of this spirit by Beyonce compared to Nikki Minaj’s Roman. And for those who are still not convinced that this is a spiritual encounter taking place, here again is Beyonce speaking of Sasha in her own words:
Not being in control of herself. Invoking a spirit and receiving it. Being so possessed and out of her mind that physical pain is not even felt. The characteristics of demon possession/mind control are clearly apparent. And just as Springmeier and occultists state, there is always sexuality involved. Beyonce has become renowned for her skimpy revealing outfits, often wearing bikini bottoms on stage, spreading her legs repeatedly during performances and over the top sexual gyrations and gestures in her videos. This in itself is satanic as it is promoting promiscuous behavior and enticing lust in those watching. And her depictions of Sasha Fierce are also demonic.
Here is Beyonce’s Album cover, which on one side shows the “good girl” Beyonce.
And then the other side of the album jacket shows Sasha Fierce.
Notice the hands forming horns on her head. The symbolism is that the spirit that is Sasha Fierce is evil. And by her own admission, the spirit is X-rated, rebellious and wild. Beyonce at one point said that if she saw Sasha Fierce she “would not like her.” Below is yet another image of Sasha Fierce:
And here is the Baphomet symbol on full display. We described the Baphomet symbol in our article on Jay-Z (who happens to be Beyonce’s husband) and Kanye West, and their use of the symbol on the cover of their “Watch The Throne” album. Here is Anton LaVey’s description of the symbol of the ‘Baphomet.’
“The symbol of Baphomet was used by the Knights Templar to represent Satan. Through the ages this symbol has been called by many different names. Among these are: The Goat of Mendes, The Goat of a Thousand Young, The Black Goat, The Judas Goat, and perhaps the most appropriately, The Scapegoat.
Baphomet represents the Powers of Darkness combined with the generative fertility of the goat. In its “pure” form the pentagram is shown encompassing the figure of a man in the five points of the star – three points up, two pointing down – symbolizing man’s spiritual nature. In Satanism the pentagram is also used, but since Satanism represents the carnal instincts of man, or the opposite of spiritual nature, the pentagram is inverted to perfectly accommodate the head of the goat – its horns, representing duality, thrust upwards in defiance; the other three points inverted, or the trinity denied.
And this is what Beyonce chose to represent Sasha Fierce. As the Bible describes, spirits can continue to influence their victims even without the person knowing. And Beyonce seems to have strong influence from Sasha Fierce.
Even Rolling Stone Magazine described Beyonce’s description of her alter ego in spiritual terms:
Satan will use any mean necessary to corrupt people and remove them from the Gospel of Jesus Christ. And music, fame and money are tried and true methods that seduced millions away from the simple truth and into destruction and hell. What can just seem like “music” is bringing spiritual forces into the mind and home of the listener. And this is evident as what would have been so offensive just ten years ago, is not completely acceptable on TV or on Super Bowl or Grammy performances. Society has been conditioned by entertainers to accept more and more lewd, promiscuous and amoral behavior. Women and girls are being socialized to hate each other, gossip and wear the title of “Bi–h” as a badge of honor. Men are conditioned to objectify and demean women along with idolizing criminals, gansgters and people who act as idiotic and disrespectful as possible (see “The Jersey Shore”). And everyone is focused on promotion of self – whether it is making records that boast of luxury cars and mansions, or posting pictures and bragging on Facebook. The Bible prophesied that this would be the state of the world as the end times approached:
This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. (2 Timothy 3:1-7).Today, society is “ever learning” nothing but corruption. Performers like Minaj, Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Eminem and Tyler the Creator constantly promote wickedness, rebellion and all sorts of spiritual darkness. And they have legions of fans who worship and defend them, just for the chance to pay more money to makes these stars even wealthier. Those who want to take a stand for morality and goodness are seen as bigots, judgmental and “haters.” One wonders where are church leaders on these issues? Why are the televangelists not speaking out on this satanic wave entering pop culture and into the homes of families across the globe? Instead churches are acquiescing to sin. the promotion of demons and letting all of this slide by. Some churches are even dancing to this music (as mega-church Granger Community Church does shamefully in this video). All this makes it more imperative to not be silent on these issues. This article is not being written to condemn these artists. It is to serve as a warning to listeners and parents of the spiritual implications and messages being put into music today and point to the solution: Jesus Christ.
On the heels of Madonna’s Super Bowl occult ritual, Nikki Minaj’s Grammy performance brought the devil’s agenda of demonic possession and disrespect of God to the national stage once more. Despite the argument that this is “just music” a look deeper reveals that demon possession is very real as well as the history of mind-control programming. And in all of this we see an evil spiritual nature. The fact that these celebrities can openly discuss “alter egos” as if they are real beings living inside of them is disturbing and proof that there is something spiritual taking place. As we have stated in past articles, the entertainment industry is “ramping up” and what was once subtle symbolism is now turning into outright blasphemy against God and open satanic displays. If you are a Christian, remember Jesus’ words:
“Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?” (Matthew 16:24-26)Many people today are willingly giving up their souls in exchange for money, power and “the fame.” It is in separating from the sinful world and not supporting it, that God is glorified in you. Are you willing to truly follow Jesus, or do your own personal desires for fun and social acceptance take priority? And for those who are not Christian, remember that Jesus is the answer to escape demons, Satan and the evil of this world. Jesus Christ said “ I am come that [humanity] might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10). There is an eternal life waiting for all of us. Jesus came to make things right and provide a way for all people to live on Earth when He is in control of it (at His Second Coming), ruling the world in true peace and harmony. But it takes faith in Him and acknowledging the sin that separates us from God in the first place.
Just knowing the truth behind the songs and performances will not matter if you are in the same spiritual boat as Nikki Minaj. What matters is the ultimate truth: that all people are sinners and start off no different. The Bible says that Satan’s spiritual influence “now worketh in the children of disobedience.” That means any unbelievers have evil spiritual influence in them because of our sins. Because of our sin we are all trapped in bondage to spirits. And there is no hope for humanity to restore itself. This is why God sent Jesus to Earth. Not to possess people. Not to manipulate. But to offer Himself as a sacrifice and take the punishment for humanity, so we can have a chance to escape God’s wrath and return to God’s good graces and family. But The Lord does not possess people. He offers choice. And it just takes a decision to believe in Jesus Christ, the one who demons bow down to, in order to have forgiveness of sins and eternal life. Instead of having your mind controlled, Jesus Christ gives the His peace and freedom from sin and the devil to live for love and righteousness.
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified [made innocent in God's eyes] by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. (Romans 5:8-10).
Ellen DeGeneres JCPenny Ad: 666 Mark of the Beast Symbolism?
March 11, 2012 By 25 Comments
The advertising industry, a prominent and powerful industry, engages in deceptive subliminal advertising which most us are unaware of. By bypassing our unconscious mind using subliminal techniques, advertisers tap into the vulnerabilities surrounding our unconscious mind, manipulating and controlling us in many ways. Since the 1940′s subliminal advertising blossomed until now, when you can find subliminals in every major advertisement and magazine cover. Legislation against the advertisers has had no effect in curbing the use of subliminals. In this Information Age, it seems people are no longer in control of the people. The ones in control are the ones with knowledge (as usual). In this case, the advertisers have it; you don’t - Dr. Lechnar ‘Subliminal Advertising and Modern Day Brainwashing’Talk show host and outspoken homosexual advocate Ellen DeGeneres appears in a commercial with 666 symbolism abounding. Watch the opening seconds of the commercial and see if you can notice it.
If you pause at 2 seconds into the video, you will notice the front “sale sign” in the store has “666″ in large font on it. At 3 seconds, the sign on the right side of the store (behind the employee) is visible with 666 as well as the small sign on the left wall’s shelves. 4 seconds, the sign on the back shelves becomes visible and also has “666.”
The number 666 is detailed in the book of Revelation Chapter 13. And it is distinctly linked to the Antichrist, Satanically-empowered, false Messianic figure who will be the world’s foremost political leader in the end times, as well as being worshiped by the unbelieving world as God. With full control over the world’s economy, the Antichrist will install a new system of commerce where all buying and selling is controlled by a “mark” in the right hand or forehead of every person on the planet under penalty of death. In describing this system the Bible states:
And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. (Revelation 13:16-18)We explain the Biblical connection between the number 666 to the Antichrist, the Mark of the Beast and its promotion in pop culture in our article “666 – The Mark of the Beast: Humanity’s Ultimate Choice.” As society moves further from God, Biblical moral values and enters into an age of immorality and the occult, symbolism serves to implant images and ideas in the subconscious mind in order to accept those ideas or desire them in the conscious mind in the future. And now even Satan and the Antichrist is being promoted into the minds of the public today. This makes it all the more important to stand up for the truth of the Bible and share it with others. While the JCPenny ads have stirred controversy because One Million Moms, a pro-family group protesting DeGeneres, who is gay, being the JCPenny spokesperson, the not so subtle Mark of the Beast symbolism ad is not getting similar attention.
The good news is that just as the Bible prophesies the future Antichrist, it also prophesies of the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, who will defeat the Antichrist, end his reign of terror and restore peace and righteousness to this world. And in the Gospel of Jesus Christ, there is hope and victory over all of the tricks of Satan. In the book of 1 John, the Bible discusses the “spirit of antichrist” that is already in the world and precedes the true Antichrist who will come. And the scriptures reassure believers that: “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.” When you become a Born Again Christian, you receive God’s Holy Spirit and share in Christ’s victory won on the cross. Share the Gospel and use discernment (and maybe it’s time to stop watching so much television).
Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices. – 2 Corinthians 2:11
Mercedes Benz’ Satanic Super Bowl Ad – Selling Your Soul To The Devil
February 2, 2013 By 19 Comments
As the Super Bowl approaches, all eyes will be fixed on the exciting commercials and Mercedes-Benz’ new ad makes a special tribute to Satan. Entitled “Soul”, the commercial features a young man who is offered a “deal with the Devil”, ( the Devil is played by film actor Willem Dafoe), where he can receive a new Mercedes-Benz, fame, wealth and pleasure in exchange for his soul. Once again the entertainment industry continues to bombard the minds of society with the lure of satanic rebellion against God. The video is below.
Here is the teaser ad
And here is the full ad
The commercial incorporates many satanic elements. In the teaser ad, a “hellhound” often associated with those who pledge their services to the devil, is seen barking outside of the diner. Famed Mississippi blues man Robert Johnson, a musician who is often credit as the “Father of Rock ‘n Roll”, was infamous for making the first music industry “deal with the devil” in Clarksdale, Mississippi (something he claimed to have done early in his career). After this supernatural encounter, Johnson went on to become one of the most legendary guitarists of all time. Despite his success, Johnson often complained of being plagued by demons. One of his famous songs on this subject is entitled “Hellhound On My Trail.”
Then the wind blows into the diner turning on the jukebox to play the song, Sympathy For The Devil, by the Rolling Stones, one of the most blatant odes to Satan in music history.
The lyrics begin:
Please allow me to introduce myselfWith a very clear reference to stealing souls, faith and the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, this song is clearly referring to Satan. The song soon makes it clear by using the name for the devil, Lucifer, used in the Bible in Isaiah 14:
I’m a man of wealth and taste
I’ve been around for a long, long year
Stole many a mans soul and faith
And I was round when Jesus Christ
Had his moment of doubt and pain
Made damn sure that Pilate
Washed his hands and sealed his fate
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name
But what’s puzzling you
Is the nature of my game
Just as every cop is a criminal
And all the sinners saints
As heads is tails
Just call me lucifer
Cause I’m in need of some restraint
Additionally, at the :13 mark in the video Dafoe is shown wearing both a Freemasonic ring. The satanic contract, which contains an inverted chi-ro (the symbol the Catholic Church uses), contains the phrase “Seal Placed of The Master, The Devil and The Demons.”
The ad closes by instructing the viewer to “set your soul free” and the number “13″ going up in flames.
The Price of Fame – Selling Your Soul For Riches
The ad, while trying to be humorous does allude to what the entertainment industry has long whispered about: the selling of one’s soul to Satan for untold success. Many artists through the years have made reference to it. Here are several examples:
Kanye West (Warning: there is one expletive in this video)
Bob Dylan ( in a very frank admission that it is because of Satan that he is still performing.)
The “deal with the Devil” seems like a very frightening and eerie ritual. But what is always left out in the discussion is that since all people are born sinning and continue to sin through their life, sinful humanity is under Satan’s influence already. Ephesians Chapter 2 makes this clear:
And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others. – Ephesians 2:1-3.The Apostle Paul, writing to Christians in Ephesus told them “you” meaning Christians, were once unsaved sinners. All people who do not have saving faith in Jesus Christ are subject to the “prince of the power of the air” – a title for Satan. And have his spiritual influence in them. This is reflected in the sinful behavior, lack of repentance and concern for God seen in much of society today. So even without a contract, a person in this situation is under condemnation to spend eternity in Hell with Satan when they die (and notice in the commercial, even though the young man turns down the deal he still plans on getting the Mercedes-Benz and “everything that comes with it”).
The Garden of Eden – The Original Deal With The Devil
Eternal punishment is the consequence of the curse of our sin – going all the way back to the first two people on Earth. In The Garden of Eden, Satan made his first “deal” with Eve, the first woman.
Now the serpent was more [subtle] than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. – Genesis 3:1-6.By promising her secret knowledge to become like a god, Satan deceived Eve into breaking God’s commands not to eat from the tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, bringing sin, death and God’s judgment to the world. Satan, a far older and experienced being than any human, uses the same 3 seductions to lure humanity into sin: “For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.” (1 John 2:16). Once Satan put the seed of doubt in Eve’s mind she then noticed the fruit was “pleasant to the eyes”, “good for food” and “a tree to be desired to make one wise.” She could satisfy her hunger. She could have something that looked good to her eyes. And she could boast in the divine wisdom she was going to supposedly obtain. This the main tactic of Satan’s system of temptation in the world since creation. And human being after human being has fallen for it, leading to sin and God’s judgment abiding over them.
But God, in His Mercy, made a plan for redemption, by bringing a promised Messiah into the world, Jesus Christ, who would conquer the Devil and provide a way to permanent forgiveness for humanity.
For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. – Romans 5:6-10.Jesus Christ, God in the flesh, gave His life as a ransom and payment for sinful humanity who have been held hostage by sin and the Devil’s seduction. Satan even tried to challenge Jesus Christ while he was on Earth by offering a “deal”:
Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred. And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple, And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.Satan tempted Jesus with the same 3 lusts: lust of the flesh (making stones into bread to satisfy his hunger), lust of the eyes (having every Kingdom of the world) and the pride of life (showing off his Divine powers). But Jesus resisted the Devil by standing on The Word of God and believing it over the Devil’s empty promises. Ultimately, Satan wants to be God and this is why He wanted Jesus to worship him. But for most people, the temptation to sin will come in a far more subtle manner. As with Eve, Satan will look to whatever makes you happy in life and offer it. Whether it is money, a new car, sexual pleasure, drugs or revenge, The Devil will set up the temptation as long as it brings you into rebellion against God.
Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him. – Matthew 4:1-11.
Just as Satan offered Jesus the kingdoms of the world, so too does he dangle fame and wealth to the many multimillionaire celebrities who use their entertainment to promote his sinful agenda. A star does not have to be a member of a secret society to be “Illuminati” – they just have to be willing to do Satan’s bidding. And this is shown as pop culture has gone out of its way to promote rebellion, promiscuity, drugs, violence and the occult. [B&E: Willem Dafoe, who plays Satan in the commercial, played the role of Jesus Christ in the movie The Last Temptation of Christ one of the most blasphemous portrayals of Jesus ever made. He also starred in the movie Antichrist, a film in which his character's wife was supposed to be a Satan-type character.]
The Bible warns: “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:” – 1 Peter 5:8.Satan wants to bring as many people to hell with him as possible. And all that takes is keeping the hearts and minds of people far from God and His Word. The farther a person gets from God, and looking to their own wants and desires, the less the consequences of their sin will matter. So while the deal may seem sweet for a season, the end result is destruction. Do not be deceived.
As we have detailed at Beginning and End, Hollywood has become bolder and bolder when it comes to promoting an anti-Christian message. The message of pop culture is embodied in the Mercedes Benz ad – live for the moment, seek fame, wealth and satisfy any lust you have. The Devil wants humanity to believe that there is no purpose in life and no consequence to sin. But the Bible gives the truth, that ultimately Satan wants to destroy humanity or have them worship him. This world, and all its riches are fleeting. Satan has been judged and will burn in Hell for eternity. Jesus Christ is returning to restore order and righteousness and all the wealth and fame of today will be gone. But your soul will remain and be judged. This is why Jesus said: “For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?” No riches today are worth eternal torment in hell.
The Fallen Star – The Part Satan Wants You To Forget
How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! - Isaiah 14:12.Although celebrities appear to “have it all” and be “gods” and “goddesses” to the unwitting masses, many of them live tortured lives marked by tragic, untimely deaths. Pop singer Amy Winehouse is a recent example of a mega-star who while having all of the fame and money the world can offer, ended up dying in tragic circumstances after battles with substance abuse. Winehouse died at the age of 27, an age at which so many of the biggest icons in pop culture have died there is actually a nickname – “The 27 Club.” Among the celebrities that have died at this age are Jim Morrison of the Doors, legendary rocker Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Kurt Cobain of the grunge rock group Nirvana. [B&E: Robert Johnson, mentioned above, also died at the age of 27].
And there are many more celebrities who spent their final days in deep depression, addicted to drugs and alcohol and miserable about life (Michael Jackson and Elvis Presley, possibly the two biggest stars of all time, for example). Just like Satan, who was once a glorious angel working for good, before turning evil and being punished by God, a large number of stars experience a tragic fall. But by the time this happens, the entertainment industry has brought forth a new crop of stars for society to idolize and forget the “has-beens” of yesteryear. So even in this life, the “deal” is not all it’s cracked up to be.
Make The Right Deal
“This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.” – Luke 22:20.When Jesus Christ announced these words just before His death on the cross, He was establishing a Divine Deal, or covenant, between God and humanity. Jesus willingly sacrificed Himself on the cross to take the punishment for the sins of all of humanity. He bore the wrath and shame that all people deserve (this author included) and died. But in His resurrection from the dead He has won victory for all people who put their faith in Him. That is the deal that every person has to make or reject. Doing nothing with Satan but ignoring God will still lead to eternal suffering alongside Satan. But believing in Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins guarantees eternal life in paradise (even for those in the occult or who may have made a “Satanic deal” in their past). There are riches in eternity. There are mansions in Heaven. And there is true peace and joy. And it just takes faith in Jesus Christ. That is the deal that The Lord is offering all people:
Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. – Isaiah 1:18.With Illuminati-themed ads airing on television’s biggest night, now is the time for Christians to share the Gospel with even more urgency. There truly are souls at stake.
“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” – James 4:7.
Newtown School Shooter Adam Lanza and Satan
December 27, 2012 By 11 Comments
In the aftermath of the horrific Sandy Hook Elementary school shooting, a picture of just who killer Adam Lanza was is starting to surface. And based on the early reports, it’s possible that he was on a dark road that opened him up to a host of evil spiritual influences.
Was Adam Lanza A Satan Worshiper?
The UK Daily Mail first broke the story:
The Sandy Hook gunman worshiped the devil and had an online page dedicated to Satan, a former classmate revealed, as his childhood barber recalls Adam Lanza never spoke and would stare at the floor every time he had his hair cut.
Lanza’s worshiping page had the word ‘Devil’ written in red, Gothic-style letters against a black background, Trevor L. Todd told The National Enquirer, something which he said was ‘weird’ and ‘gave him the chills’.
The FBI are trying to piece together his smashed up hard drive to see if his online footprint will reveal any motive for the killing, but they strongly believe he made use of devil-worshiping and suicide sites and boasted of his murder plans on message forums. (source)
The Bible is clear that dabbling in the occult or any practices involving Satan is a clear sin and should be avoided:
There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch. Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee. – Deuteronomy 18:10-12.God made such strong restrictions against these activities because they ultimately lead to contacting demons and fallen angels who are a part of Satan’s network in the spirit realm. These are beings far older, more powerful and deceptive than humans understand. And their main goal is to destroy humanity and bring as many people away from The Lord as possible. Jesus Christ said of Satan: ” He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.” (John 8:44).
The Death Culture of Violent Video Games
But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death. - Proverbs 8:36.As Beginning and End detailed in our article on the video game Lucius (where you play the role of the Antichrist), many video games today our flooding the minds of children, youth and adults with ultra-violent imagery, graphic death and dismemberment and a reward system that is solely based on “kill count” – the total amount of people you can murder in a given game. “Call of Duty”, a first person view, military game in which players kill hundreds of virtual enemies per sitting, using high powered assault rifles, is one of the most popular games in the death culture genre. And according to reports, Lanza was obsessed with it, spending hours every day in the basement of his mother’s house playing the virtual shooting game. Success in the video game is entirely based on the maximum people you can kill – and who, in very high detailed graphics, have limbs fly off, blood splatter and other gruesome images flashing on the screen at a rapid rate.
For hours on end, alone in his windowless basement den, Adam Lanza studied photos of guns and obliterated virtual victims in violent video games — until the virtual became a reality.
The unhinged Sandy Hook Elementary School gunman was enthralled by blood-splattering, shoot-’em-up electronic games, which he played in the basement of his mother’s spacious $1.6 million home in Newtown, Conn., according to a person familiar with the layout.
Lanza, 20, especially liked “Call of Duty” — a wartime role-playing game where participants use high-powered assault rifles, machine guns and other weapons to slaughter scores of people, according to a published report. (source)
When a person is already in sinful rebellion of the occult and then immersing themselves in violent fantasies of killing for hours each day, the potential for evil spiritual influence is even greater. If these reports are true, Lanza was setting himself up each day for something more sinister to take place. The Bible teaches that sin is a downward spiral, getting worse as the person continues in sin with no repentance and no regard for The Lord. The Book of James describes the ultimate end of this process:
But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death. – James 1:14-15.The final piece of news is that Adam Lanza is that he may have possibly been on psychotropic drugs. In our article on these drugs and school shootings, we detail the numerous assailants in these mass murders who were on psychotropic drugs at the time. According to news reports, Lanza was taking medication for Asperger syndrome since age 10. Jennifer Huettner, Lanza’s teacher for three years, also confirmed that he had Asperger syndrome. Though it is not clear if and what treatment he had during the time of the shooting.
The human heart, on its own is home to the sin nature that all people posses. Jeremiah 17 says: ” The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” This is why protecting one’s mind and life from evil influences is so important. It is impossible to point to one specific aspect of Lanza’s life as the reason for his killing spree. But there is no question that strong forces of evil were at work in his heart that led to sinful desires which he unfortunately yielded to. If a person continues in sin and tried to contact or channel demonic forces, they can and will eventually overtake the person and lead to any manner of atrocity.
What can be pointed to is the one solution for the human heart: the Gospel of Jesus Christ. continue in prayer for the victims of this shooting tragedy and for those who may be considering committing a homicidal spree themselves right now. Pray for the hearts of future Adam Lanzas and all people who are at odds with the Lord to resist the Devil and seek peace and true joy in Jesus Christ. Many people are hurting, suffering and feel neglected. And reaching them with the Gospel cannot only save their souls eternally but it could also potentially spare the lives of others.
