“The devil led him up to a high place and showed him in an instant all the kingdoms of the world. And he said to him, ‘I will give you all their authority and splendor, for it has been given to me, and I can give it to anyone I want to. So if you worship me, it will all be yours.’
Jesus answered, ‘It is written: Worship the Lord your God and serve him only.’” Luke 4:5-8
Satan tried and failed using that tactic on Christ but he is succeeding with many today using the same scheme. Do some research and learn just what it takes to have immense fame and wealth. Throughout Hollywood, high finance, the music industry, and so-called "Christian" television with its false teachers you see famous, wealthy people living a life that those same famous wealthy people propagate as the ideal life. They lead you to believe either directly or indirectly that your life is not complete because you don’t measure up.
Now read the above excerpt from scripture again and realize what the rich and famous had to do to get to those positions. These are the people we look at for inspiration while coveting their wealth. Judging by how we gorge ourselves on their product at the expense of a deeper reality, you can’t avoid the fact that those people own your mind with a keen eye on your soul.
Have you ever wondered why so called stars are all over the place making millions while super talented people go unnoticed? There is a deeper process involved. Much deeper than "working hard" and "following your dreams" and "paying your dues". All of those things are part of the equation but... that's not the whole formula.
Satan’s tactics have not changed. Wanna be stars are identified as both have some kind of marketable talent AND being willing to bow to satan and further satan's agenda and here's the proof. Just look at the fruit of their labor.
Wanna be talent is taken to the high places and shown the “good life”. They are courted at parties, given controlled bank accounts, flown around the world, Then they are told they can have it all if they act out the scripts, sing the right lyrics, make the right videos. Look at what it out there. All of that ends up being money, sex, and self. The opposite of God. Remember satan always opposes God. satan always preaches the opposite of God. satan is anti-christ.
But you don’t have to believe me. Believe the stars themselves. Katy Perry and Kanye West have admitted on camera to selling their souls to satan. Lady Gaga, on a late night TV show, swore to satan while very casually laughing and having a good time. It was as if it were just normal conversation! You can look these up yourself. It’s all out there in plain view.
Why is it so hard for talented people to “make it”? Why is it so hard to gain mega wealth? Why do seemingly normal people become stars and suddenly they’re in and out of rehab, shaving their heads, standing out in the middle of the street waving a gun? Why are they overdosing? Is it the pressure of stardom? Or is it that they can’t live with themselves anymore. They can’t live with what they’ve done to get to where they are? They can’t face the fact that in order to stay in their lofty position they will have to perform another vile act, allow themselves to be raped again and maybe even recruit another young newbie hungry to realize a dream.
We have been conditioned to think that these things only happen in fiction. Maybe what we are conditioned to think is that movies and TV shows are fiction disguised as fact when the reality is that they are fact disguised as fiction.
Is it a coincidence that Snoop Dogg, The Weeknd and Taylor Swift all made videos showing themselves being confronted by an alter ego? Then their normal self is murdered, the old "nice" self is buried, and a new, harder, more sinister self rises from a grave.
This is the real deal. This is what we buy. This is the lifestyle that millions of people covet. This is what we allow into your mind which further pollutes our soul as if all of our souls aren't polluted enough by our falleness. This is what you give to your children.
Make no mistake. It’s not just the entertainment industry. One former top tier banker tells of rising to the top of the financial world. When he was deemed to be "ready" he was invited to a ritual which turned out to be an actual child sacrifice! That’s what it took for him to realize what he was doing through his position at a world bank.
It goes that far! This is the real reality. Everything that they produce is a sick mirage. It’s all going on around us while we work ourselves to exhaustion. Then we get home with only enough energy left to sit in front of a TV, a computer or a cell phone while they pump us full of products designed to program us even further. They program you to think you don’t measure up so you’ll buy more of whatever they’re selling. And so the cycle repeats the next day and the next and the next and we fund the entire cycle. This is the world we live in. For some whose eyes are opened, it only reinforces the need for Jesus Christ. For others it is wool over their eyes. Open your eyes and see!
