Rock Music: The Babylon Deception (CCM. Heavy Metal. Rap. Techno. Illuminati Music.)





Rock Music: The Babylon Deception

        _______________________________________________________

Rock Music Promotes the Worship of Self and Rebellion


Rock music has been popular since the 1950s and had had an appeal to people of all cultures and ethnic groups around the world. Since the time Blues morphed into rock with the help of musicians such as Little Richard and Elvis Presley, Rock ‘n’ Roll has drawn in many millions of fans worldwide.

Rock performers have revealed some interesting information about Rock ‘n’ Roll that may shock you. The first fact they have revealed to us is that Rock music is about doing what you want to do. Listen to these quotes from Rock musicians and Rock lovers. (Note: emphasis is added to the quotes.)

“I’m free to do what I want any old time” (“I’m Free,” Rolling Stones, 1965). 
It’s my life and I’ll do what I want/ It’s my mind, and I’ll think what I want” (The Animals, 1965). 
“You got to go where you want to go/ do what you want to do” (Mamas and Papas, 1965). 
“It’s your thing/ do what you want to do” (Isley Brothers, 1969). 
The main purpose of rock and roll is celebration of the self” (Daryl Hall of Hall and Oates, interview with Timothy White, 1987, Rock Lives, p. 594).   
“Rock music has got the same message as before. It is anti-religious, anti-nationalistic and anti-morality. But now I understand what you have to do. You have to put the message across with a little honey on it” (John Lennon, spoken not long before his death in 1980, Pop Goes the Gospel, p. 84). 

John Lennon echoed an infamous saying by Satanist Aleister Crowley.

“The whole Beatles idea was to do what you want … do what thou wilst, as long as it doesn’t hurt somebody” (John Lennon, cited by David Sheff, The Playboy Interviews with John Lennon and Yoko Ono, p. 61).

A picture of Aleister Crowley is found on the cover of The Beatle’s Sergeant Pepper’s album. Crowley’s most infamous saying, “Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law” is Satanic teaching which Anton LaVey, founder of The Church of Satan also taught (Stewart).

“...and he must, as a satanist, knowing this, realizing what his human potential is, eventually, and here is one of the essential points of satanism, attain his own godhead in accordance with his own potential. Therefore, each man, each woman is a god, or goddess in satanism.” (Anton LaVey, Church of Satan)

Satan, in the serpent, said the same thing to Eve, in Genesis 3.

Genesis 3:4-5 
4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:
5 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.

This lie that you will never die if you sin (or rebel against God), and that you will become a god to do your own will is a lie of Satan and is repeated in the Rock music industry. If you continue in sin you shall surely die. The Bible says that the wages of sin is death (see Romans 6:23 and Romans 6:16).

Pop musician Kanye West came out with a song recently titled, "I Am a God".

This echoes what many Rock fans and Rock stars say.

“The main purpose of rock and roll is celebration of the self” (Daryl Hall of Hall and Oates, interview with Timothy White, 1987, Rock Lives, p. 594). 
“This is a story about control. My control. Control of what, I say? Control of what I do, and this time I’m gonna do it my way. … got my own mind. I want to make my own decision; when it has to do with my life, I want to be the one in control…” (Janet Jackson, “Control”). 
“... the whole idea of rock 'n' roll is to offend your parents” (Rock drummer King Coffey, The Truth about Rock, p. 30). 

Rock stars say Rock music is all about doing things their own way, as opposed to God’s way. What else is Rock music focused on?

Rock and Roll Produces Sexual Desire


In the late ‘40s and into the ‘50s “Blues” began to morph into what we call modern Rock and Roll.  An article in U.S. News & World from 1985 said: (Emphasis is added to the quotes.)

“‘Rock and roll,’ itself a bluesmusic term for sex, suggested rebellion and abandon as much as it did a new style of music when it first jarred adult sensibilities in the 1950s. ‘When you’re growing up,’ says Jerry Kramer, a prominent director of music videos, ‘you like rock and roll for one reason: Because your parents don’t’” (“What entertainers are doing to your kids,” U.S. News & World Report, October 28, 1985, page 47).

Jerry Rubin, a countercultural icon, wrote:

“Rock ‘n’ roll marked the beginning of the revolution. … We’ve combined youth, music, sex, drugs, and rebellion with treason, and that’s a combination hard to beat” (Jerry Rubin, Do It!, 1970, pp. 19, 249).

Other famous Rock artists said Rock ‘n’ Roll is about sex.

“Rock ‘n’ roll is 99% sex” (John Oates of the rock duo Hall & Oates, Circus, Jan. 31, 1976). 
“Rock music is sex. The big beat matches the body’s rhythms” (Frank Zappa of the Mothers of Invention, Life, June 28, 1968).
“That’s what rock is all about--sex with a 100 megaton bomb, the beat!” (Gene Simmons of the rock group Kiss, interview, Entertainment Tonight, ABC, Dec. 10, 1987). 
“Rock music is sex and you have to hit them [teenagers] in the face with it” (Andrew Oldham, manager of the Rolling Stones, Time, April 28, 1967, p. 54).

According to Frank Zappa and Gene Simmons (of Kiss) and others, the beat in Rock music is related to sexual desire. The late historian Allan Bloom wrote in his book The Closing of the American Mind:

But rock music has one appeal only, a barbaric appeal to sexual desire—not love, not eros, but sexual desire undeveloped and untutored. Rock gives children, on a silver platter, with all the public authority of the entertainment industry, everything their parents always used to tell them they had to wait for until they grew up and would understand later” (Allan Bloom, The Closing of the American Mind, New York: Simon and Schuster, 1987, p. 73).

The beat in Rock music did not originate with Rock music. It came hundreds of years earlier.

Rock Music is related to Voodoo


When African slaves were brutally captured and taken aboard slave ships for America, living in horrible conditions aboard the ships, they brought with them their music, part of their pagan religion. In Africa, drums are known to call up the spirits, known as the “gods” (Ventura).

Michael Ventura, a secular journalist, wrote of the Voodoo roots of Rock music in an article titled “Hear that Long Snake Moan”: (Emphasis is added to the quotes.)

"In Abomey, Africa, these deities that speak through humans are called vodun. The word means “mysteries.” From their vodun comes our “Voodoo.” And it is to Voodoo that we must look for the roots of our music [Rock and Roll]." 
"The object of Voodoo ceremony is possession by the god." 
"The Voodoo rite of possession by the god became the standard of American performance in rock’n’roll. Elvis Presley, Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, James Brown, Janis Joplin, Tina Turner, Jim Morrison, Johnny Rotten, Prince – they let themselves be possessed not by any god they could name but by the spirit they felt in the music. Their behavior in this possession was something Western society had never before tolerated. And the way a possessed devotee in a Voodoo ceremony often will transmit his state of possession to someone else merely by touching the hand, they transmitted their possession through their voice and their dance to their audience, even through their records."
The drums pounding away in Voodoo rituals are nearly identical to the drums of Rock music and both call up evil spirits that the pagans call “gods”.

Missionary Ivor Greenslade recounts his experience on the mission field in this transcript: (Emphasis is added to the quotes.)

“When we first came up here (from the mission field) and heard the Rock Music, when it first came out, my wife and I looked at each other and said this is something we have been hearing all along. This is nothing new to us. It sounds just like the jungle music
"I remember one furlough going back and we took some tapes out. Our children had slipped one of these contemporary Christian music tapes, Christian Rock. Shall we put it in quotation marks? Really there is no such thing as "Christian" Rock. Rock is rock and it is connected to Spiritism
"When our children played that tape, suddenly the brethren wanted to know why we were playing the music of the demons. They recognized it right away. 
"All of this contemporary Christian music as they call it, the people who are in Animism recognize it right away as their demonism music. You will find that this [rock] music and Animism is the same in the Amazon Jungle as it is in North America. It is all related to Spiritism” (Brown).

If these former Animists (who became Christians) knew that Rock music is identical to their tribal, demon-summoning music, and if Rock artists understand that the beat is what produces sexual desire, then Rock music is not neutral as some people say (even if it is called "Christian Rock").

Rock music, with its power to create sexual pleasure, is worshiped around the world. Rock stars become the idols of many fans and the music brings in evil spirits to lure them away into the lusts of the flesh. Sexual perversion and immoral lifestyles are encouraged by Rock music, which has a religious following around the world.

Rock Music is a Religion



The Beatles first appeared to an American audience, on the Ed Sullivan Show, on February 9, 1964 (Spitz). Sixty percent of American with TV’s—a number unheard of before--watched The Beatles during that one live broadcast (Spitz) which would forever change America.

During that television concert, teen girls screamed with excitement and passion. The Beatles became America’s, and the world’s number one Rock band, which was worshipped with such religious fervor that on several occasions people ripped doorknobs off hotel doors that members of The Beatles had apparently touched (“Beatlemania.”).

During a tour in the Amsterdam canals, large crowds of people leapt into the canals attempting to reach the boat The Beatles rode on (“Beatlemania.”).  Even more insane, a British girl attempted to mail herself to The Beatles in a box labeled “Presents for The Beatles” (“Beatlemania.”).

The worship The Beatles received during their “hay day” is a sign of the spiritual nature of Rock music. Rock performers defend Rock music as being a kind of religion.

Blackie Lawless of W.A.S.P. said: “I look at Rock like a religion” (Blackie Lawless of W.A.S.P., Faces, Feb. 1985, p. 53). (Emphasis added)

Michael Moynihan, a Rock ‘n’ Roll historian, said: “In spiritual terms music is a magical operation, a vehicle for man to communicate with the gods. Depending on whom the celebrants invoke, this can mean soaring to heaven on the voices of angels or raising beasts from the pits of hell” (Lords of Chaos: The Bloody Rise of the Satanic Metal Underground, p. 1). (Emphasis added)

Judas Priest, a heavy metal band, was asked about their reason for calling one of their albums “Defenders of the Faith.” They replied, “We’re defending the faith of heavy metal music” (The Rock Report, p. 10). They said: “Heavy metal isn’t just music to us. It’s a philosophy and a way of life” (Judas Priest, Hit Parader, July 1984). (See "Rock Music as Religion.") (Emphasis added)

Jimi Hendrix, a famous Rock star, said, “We’re making the music into electric church music, a new kind of bible you can carry in your hearts” (Jimi Hendrix, quoted in Crosstown Traffic by Charles Murray, p. 161). (Emphasis added)

Craig Chaquico, a famous guitarist, said, “Rock concerts are the churches of today. Music puts them on a spiritual plane. All music is God” (Craig Chaquico, Jefferson Airplane guitarist, Why Knock Rock?, p. 96). (Emphasis added)

The Call to Leave the World and Repent


Jesus Christ said this in Luke 16:13: “No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.” (Emphasis added)

Luke 16 goes on to say, "[14] And the Pharisees also, who were covetous, heard all these things: and they derided him. [15] And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God." (Emphasis added)

God’s Word says:

Romans 6:16

16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?

Romans 6:12

12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.

1 John 2:15-17 (Emphasis added)

15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
16 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.
17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

Proverbs 14:12

12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.

Galatians 6:7-8

7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

Psalm 37:27

27 Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore.

2 Corinthians 6:14-18

14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.

18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

IF YOU ARE SEEKING TO KNOW GOD, please read this message.

God loves us so much that He sent His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to die for our sins and shed His precious blood to pay for all of these sins (and has risen from the dead).

If you repent (turn away) from your sins (Acts 3:19), and believe and confess aloud that Christ has done this for you (Romans 10:9-10), and have made Him your Lord and Savior (again Romans 10:9-10) you are saved. Now seek God with all your heart. Seek to know Him and you will (Jeremiah 29:13).

John 17:3 says: "And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.”

God said this in Jeremiah 29:13: “And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.” (Emphasis added)

The Babylon Deception: Movies (How Hollywood Movies Affect You.)




The Babylon Deception: Movies


The first flickering screens on which hundreds of eyes were fixed showed scenes from daily life. Horse-drawn carriages ambled slowly through the quaint, 19th century, cobblestone streets while pedestrians flowed around the carriages like small currents around boulders in a river.

It was not long before drama entered the movie scene. Movies during the early 20th century showed train robberies, trips to the Moon, and medieval fantasies. Hollywood came to America and the entertainment industry was born.

Before long, the movies began displaying immoral and indecent images which offended Christians and other people with moral standards. By the late 1920s and early 1930s, there was an outcry against the immorality of Hollywood movies. Christians and others, in large numbers, boycotted the films and refused to set foot inside movie theaters.

Due to the pressure and the potential loss of money, movie makers agreed to the public’s demands and a “moral” code, the Hay’s Code (“The Production Code...”), was applied to movies. It tolerated some “mild” immoral behavior, but would be considered very strict by today’s movie standards.

Over time, as movies pushed the boundaries of the Hay’s Code (“The Production Code…”), and as TV shows constantly broadcast moving images and ideas into the American home, new ideas about proper behavior and what was acceptable began to morph.

As the Rock and Roll music industry started its infancy, drawing young people into stadiums and concert halls, movies and TV shows began to focus more and more on darker themes, such as invasions from outer space and monsters eating humans.

In the late 1960s, movies pushed past the code restrictions and no enforcement was taken. The MPAA began its own rating system which could allow any content to be shown in a movie. A rating would then be applied to the film to identify what the intended audience should be (“The Production Code…”).

THE MAGIC WAND

Movies pushed what was acceptable with each passing year and immorality was blatantly promoted in many films. Today, it has only gotten worse. Movies have depicted every sin imaginable.

Beside the blatant perversion displayed in many films, all Hollywood films have the same source: they come from a movie system called Hollywood. Holly wood is a substance used by the Druids of ancient England. Ancient druids cut branches from holly trees which they fashioned into magic wands used for casting spells (Onstott).

This spell-casting with magic wands continues to this day in the form of Hollywood movies (as well as in its original form as a wand). It can be proven that nearly all Hollywood movies have subliminal messages, occultic references, and hidden Masonic / Illuminati symbolism throughout. Square and compass symbols, all-seeing-eye symbols, the number 33, the number 666, pentagrams (upside-down, five-pointed stars), satanic symbols, satanic “as-above-so-below” symbols, and other symbols occur in numerous scenes throughout most Hollywood movies and TV shows. Some are more blatant, while others are more subtle.

One occultic reference is found in the Star Wars movies: “May the Force be with you.” This phrase is what witches use to greet each other. The late David J. Meyer, who was a former witch who became a Christian, wrote:

'This is the oldest con game ever hatched out of hell. As a real witch, I learned about the two sides of "the force." Apparently, so do many "Christian" leaders. When real witches have sabats and esbats and meet as a coven, they greet each other by saying "Blessed be", and when they part, they say "The Force be with you." Both sides of this "Force" are Satan. It is not a good side of the force that overcomes the bad side of the force, but rather it’s the blood of Jesus Christ that destroys both supposed sides of the satanic "Force."’ ("Harry Potter?...”).

The Lord of the Rings movies are filled with witchcraft. David J. Meyer wrote an article titled “A Former Witch Looks At The Lord Of The Rings [sic].” Meyer said that as a former witch, he “can spot witchcraft in a moment, and I recognize it well” ("A Former Witch…”).  He had “practiced astrology, palmistry, and numerology among other devices of the craft” ("A Former Witch…”).

Meyer wrote: (Emphasis added)

‘The first thing a neophyte or beginner witch is taught is that there is a “force.” The “force” has two sides and can be controlled by magic spells, words, potions, incantations, rope magic, rings, amulets, and so on[.…] Witches also teach that battles are fought in the Middle Earth and in the astral plane causing upheavals both above and below. […] witches emphasize that good must triumph over evil, but it is all witchcraft.’  
‘[…] The ring [of Frodo] has an inscription on which is written a message in the witchcraft language of runes. We must remember that these runes are real and are used in the occult. […] The runes on the ring are interpreted as follows: “One ring to rule them all, one ring to find them, one ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them”’ ("A Former Witch…”).

More can be said about the blatant and subtle witchcraft in movies (such as Star Wars, Narnia, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, etc.). The Bible tells us:
Deuteronomy 18:9-12 (Emphasis added)
9 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.
10 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.
11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.
12 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.

Movie themes also contain a central agenda which is harmonious with the Illuminati / pagan / New Age / New World Order agenda. Their agenda is to have a unified world, ruled under one powerful man--the Antichrist--who causes every one to worship him and receive a mark on their forehead or hand. Their goal it to set up a "Big Brother" system of control over the entire planet.




Revelation 13:16-18
16 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:
17 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.
18 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.

Anyone who does not get the mark or worship him will be killed. Many movies have these same themes throughout their plots, but they often portray this world leader (Antichrist) as being good.

[Author's note: When I used to watch Hollywood movies I saw countless movies with the theme of a single man or a single cause uniting people together to oppose a common enemy. Independence Day showed the world uniting against an "alien threat". Interestingly Ronald Regan (a member of the Bohemian Grove) said that "I occasionally think how quickly our differences, worldwide, would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world". He said this 1988 during a speech with Mikhail Gorbachev. Regan spoke often of this "alien threat". This is clearly a New World Order theme. I can't emphasize enough that movies contain these Illuminati themes.]

The Words of God to His Corrupt Church (Given on 4/28/14) (Come out from the World)



The Words of God to His Corrupt Church (Date: 4/28/14)

[This word of God applies to Christians around
the world who are friends with the world. God said
that we cannot be both a friend of God and a friend of the world
 (see James 4:4).]
“My people, I have called out to you because I love you but you have not turned to Me. I have called out to you but you have hardened your hearts against Me. I am the LORD your God. Turn to Me, My people. Turn to Me and repent from all your wicked ways and from all your corrupt doings.

I love you and am calling out to you to repent. Repent from your sorcery. Turn from your witchcraft, from your spells, and enchantments. I, the LORD, am calling out to you. Turn to Me and I will bless you. Turn to Me and you will be saved. I love you and am calling out to you to repent.

Leave the Great Harlot and come out from her, My people. Partake not in her sins and have none of her ways for she shall be judged and her judgment shall be severe.

I have called out to you but you have not repented. I have sought you but you have not sought Me. I want you to turn to Me and find Me. Come to Me and be filled, all you My people.

Do not partake in the world. Come out from her. Leave this filthy whore. This is the whore of Babylon and I shall make her drink of the cup of her iniquity and I shall judge her with severe, everlasting fire.

The music you listen to, the movies you watch, the fellowship with the world you have is an abomination to Me. It is a great stench in My nostrils and an abomination to My Spirit.

I love you and want you to repent. Repent, My people! Repent!


These are the words of the Faithful and True. I, the LORD your God, have spoken."

God had me write this down (above). It is a message primarily for people will not repent from sin and seek God. (I tested this with the test of the spirits found in 1 John 4:1-4). These words in quotes are not my words, but God's.

I encourage you to seek God and to turn to Him with all your heart. 

Jeremiah 29:13

13 And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.

Repent from any sin God convicts you about. 

Psalm 37:27

27 Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore.

Romans 6:16

16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?

Why Do Evil People Call Evil "Good" and Good "Evil"? See What the Bible Says.



Q: Why do people call what is of God evil and of the devil? Why do they call good evil and evil good?
A:

Isaiah 5:20-24 talks about this.

Isaiah 5:20-21:

"20 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!
21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!"

Evil men are depending on their own understanding (their own mind). Isaiah 5:21 talks about this. Romans 8:6-7 (see also Romans 8:5-8) says:

Romans 8:6-7

6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.

If we do not seek God, we will be depending on our own carnal mind, which is “enmity against God” and at war with God.

Evil men will not seek God.

Psalm 10:4 says, “The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts.”

Evil men call good evil and evil good because they are not seeking God and are depending instead on their own carnal mind.

Depending on your own will instead of on God’s will is a type of rebellion.

Luke 16:13 says, “No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.”
