Katy Perry – Just Another Sacrifice
Just like everything else that Hollywood is churning out these days, the 2014 Grammy Awards proved to be a repugnant display of hedonism and occultism. Promoted by the show-biz moguls and shamelessly executed by their puppets (the performers), this celebration of decadence achieved its the not-so-veiled goal of reaching new lows with each passing year . . . further blinding the minds of its viewers to the Truth.
Yes, the Hollywood juggernaut knows all-too-well that the public will swallow any message that they wish to convey.
Ahh . . . but this is nothing new to those who are paying attention.
Those of us who chose not to watch “the show” were subsequently given a taste of the prior night’s debauchery in the headlines, images and videos that permeated the internet on the following day.
Aside from the Katy Perry video, I didn’t watch the show. I did, however, check out the highlight video, and that was more than enough to cause me to feel extremely defiled and in need of a hot shower.
It looks like the night’s “festivities” included:
- Beyonce gyrating on a chair while her T.O. husband, Jay-Z, looked on
- Lorde twitching and spasming like she just came from a Todd Bentley meeting
- 33 couples (gay and straight) being married by Queen Latifah
- Taylor Swift at the piano becoming possessed by yet another demon
- . . . and some other band (Imagine Dragons?) being soaked in blood
And if that wasn’t enough, Katy Perry’s conjuring of the “Dark Horse” . . . the act that stole the entire awards show. (Caution: Watch at your own risk)
How did Katy Perry go from a Worshiper to a Witch?
Katy Perry is another “Christian” performer raised in a “Christian home”, who came to Hollywood (perhaps with the best intentions), only to end up a spokesperson for those with a dark and satanic agenda.
How can this fall from grace happen? We’ll explore that soon.
Just as an FYI: Katy Perry is not alone in her fall . . . many more Christian celebrities have pursued their dreams in show business, only to end up mouthpieces of the devil.
I’m a Christian, I believe in God, I believe that Jesus died on a cross for my sins,” Bieber says in a new interview about the memoir. “I believe that I have a relationship and I’m able to talk to him and really, he’s the reason I’m here, so I definitely have to remember that. As soon as I start forgetting, I’ve got to click back and be like, you know, this is why I’m here.” – “Justin Bieber Talks Jesus & Marriage” – by Donna Kaufman, Nov 2, 2010
Let me make it clear, though – I am a Christian. Jesus is who saved me. He’s what keeps me full and whole.”- Miley Cyrus: “I Know Who I Am Now”– by Kevin Sessums – March 21, 2010
You are all stardust. You couldn’t be here if stars hadn’t exploded, because the elements (carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, all the things that matter for evolution) weren’t created at the beginning of time. They were created in stars. So forget Jesus. Stars died so you can live.”- “Religion without science is blind”: Miley Cyrus defends ‘forget Jesus’ tweet as she responds to backlash” – by Sarah Fitzmaurice – March 8, 2012
The list goes on . . . Beyonce, Taylor Swift, Kanye West . . . all of them entered the music industry fairly innocent, only to give up on everything they believed to bow at the altar of Satan.
Time doesn’t permit me to give the same detail as I did above with Katy, Justin and Miley, but do the research . . . you’ll quickly see a pattern emerge. It’s the same ole’ tired story.
A Different Direction
In this post, I don’t want to go down the rabbit trail (and endless debate) over whether or not these people are saved – I believe the fruit is self-evident in each situation.
I don’t even want to assign blame, because quite frankly, it’s just too easy to blame parents, the lure of money and fame, or “spiritual warfare.”
Rather than discuss the obvious possibilities (or probabilities?) that have been debated, rehashed and analyzed in hundreds of other christian blogs, I want to take you in a slightly different direction and explore a couple points that, I believe, tend to get conveniently overlooked.
Preaching the gospel of Hollywood
Many of these celebrities (and wanna-be celebrities) set their sights on Hollywood because they feel that they are going to use their talent to “take the world for Jesus.” Somehow, they have it in their minds that Hollywood is going to actually allow them to preach the True Gospel to the world.
Listen, the only gospel (little ‘g’) that the Hollywood juggernaut is going to let you preach is Hollywood’s gospel, which closely resembles Aleister Crowley’s message . . . “Do what thou wilt.”
Sure, they may allow the mention of the name of Jesus, but only in a twisted form.
Hollywood would never let you see Jesus’ true Nature. Instead, they would rather you watch Kanye West’s “Jesus Walks” or Madonna’s “Like a Prayer” and learn their twisted version of the Son of God.
To further complicate matters, the gospel that these starry-eyed kids are taught growing up is so watered down, it hardly bears consideration. Jesus said in Matthew 28:
And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.
Honestly . . . Do you think Katy Perry was ever told that she needed to teach the commandments of God to her fans? Even if she were willing, do you think her agent would let her?
What about Justin Bieber? Do you think that he was told that, after a performance, he would need to hold a baptismal service? Would his audience of pre-teen lust bunnies be able to stand hearing Words out of the Book of Life? . . . well . . . maybe.
Hahah . . . Seriously though . . . all joking aside, the answer is a resounding “No”.
The Truth is . . . Justin, Katy and all the rest (if they were told anything) were told that, if they just sang about God, they would be fulfilling the Great Commission.
Tell me, what kind of mandate is that?
Do you think that a young person could successfully stand against the temptations of the enemy (and their own flesh) by being sent out from their churches (and families) in such a manner?
It’s tragic . . . yet that is one of the reasons why, within their first year or two of stardom, these young celebrities fall flat on their faces before the altar of entertainment. Their ideas of ministering the gospel were misguided from the beginning.
But this shouldn’t surprise anyone . . . the “gospel” taught by most churches in the USA is a recipe for disaster . . . even for normal people like you and I.
In the World, Not of the World
The next thing I want to address is the notion that we, as believers, are “in the world, not of the world.”
Christians use this phrase all the time to justify their indulgence in worldly pleasures (sin). This phrase has gained a lot of traction over the last few years as Christians have let down their guard in areas they shouldn’t have, such as drinking, listening to secular music and watching junk on television.
Being “in the world, not of the world” is also a mindset adopted by those who are setting their sights on show business.
The only problem is, there is no scriptural backing for being “in the world, not of the world.”
Like the phrase “the lion shall lay down with the lamb,” it cannot be found anywhere in the Word of God! It is just a catchy mantra that has become popularized through its frequent use.
The closest verse that one can find that resembles this phrase is:
If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.
Or perhaps an amalgamation of certain pieces of scripture out of John 17.
Now I am no longer in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to You. Holy Father, keep through Your name those whom You have given Me, that they may be one as We are. While I was with them in the world, I kept them in Your name. Those whom You gave Me I have kept; and none of them is lost except the son of perdition, that the Scripture might be fulfilled.
But now I come to You, and these things I speak in the world, that they may have My joy fulfilled in themselves. I have given them Your word; and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one. They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth. As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world. And for their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they also may be sanctified by the truth.
So, as you can see, these scriptures really have nothing to do with taking part in worldly entertainment or fleshly indulgences in order to further the gospel. Rather, it means the exact opposite.
We live on this earth, but our being set apart from the sins of this world (which includes feeding our ears, eyes and minds with things of the world – sin) is one of the main reasons why our Master suffered and died.
But the modern-day church would have you believe that you can witness to Babylon by doing what the Babylonians do.
And this is yet another reason why you see Katy, Miley, Justin and all the rest bowing their knees to satan at the drop of a hat . . . because they don’t know the difference between God’s love FOR the world and their own love OF the world.
They believe they can fulfill the Great Commission and indulge in worldly pleasures simultaneously. This is not the Will of God.
1 John 2:15-17
Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world – the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life – is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.
1 Thessalonians 4:3-7
For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you should abstain from sexual immorality; that each of you should know how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor, not in passion of lust, like the Gentiles who do not know God; that no one should take advantage of and defraud his brother in this matter, because the Lord is the avenger of all such, as we also forewarned you and testified.
For God did not call us to uncleanness, but in holiness.
It’s All Part of the Enemy’s Plan
The Truth is, evangelizing Hollywood by joining Hollywood (Babylon) is a losing battle! I sincerely believe that this deception is part of the enemy’s plan!
If you think about it, his reasoning might sound a little something like this.
All I have to do is find talented Christian youth and promote them to the top of the secular music industry. Still relatively innocent (and certainly naive), the youngster will be egged on by their parents and church leaders, all of them under the assumption that the child will use their talent to ‘win the world for Christ!’ . . . what fools!
Parents in the West will feel safe letting their children listen to this new music (especially if it’s labeled as ‘crossover’) because, after all, ‘[Insert name here] is a christian!’
Because they get suckered into believing this lie, confusion will rapidly set in when [all-of-a-sudden] their new little ‘christian’ idol starts to falter in front of their adoring children.
Hahaha! When that day comes, and the young celebrity has to ‘choose this day whom they will serve,’ (and it WILL come) they’ll be in TOO DEEP to make a choice!
One more soul sacrificed at the altar of entertainment!
Millions of young souls heartbroken and disillusioned with their faith in God when they realize I am the one who REALLY won this battle!”
Celebrity Sacrifice and a Lesson Learned
Body of Christ . . . let’s learn a lesson from this.
Don’t fall for the delusion that is being propagated by our leaders and our megachurches . . . that you can WITNESS to Babylon by ACTING like a Babylonian. Many who stand on this message only desire to get cozy with the things of this world – yet, foolishly, they think that they can stay sanctified.
Instead of just watching the Katy Perry video and saying to ourselves, “Oh how vile!” let us use this experience as motivation to stop the sacrifice of our precious children on the altar of entertainment.
Remember: When you compromise their sanctification, even with the best intentions . . . you cannot win.Kevin Kleint
