In an article from the Catholic Herald that was just released October 28, 2019 entitled “Kanye was Christ-haunted long before ‘Jesus Is King”, we read the sub-title which tells us “How the rapper went from revelling in sin to echoing Benedict XVI” The article goes on to say:
”Benedict XVI showed that all Christian social thinking begins with the Sabbath.With a remarkable intuition, Kanye has proclaimed Christ’s kingship by talking about the Sabbath. People have mocked him for singing about stores closing on Sunday (“Closed on Sunday / You’re my Chick-Fil-A”),” (Catholic Herald)
This comes from the Catholic Herald telling us that Kanye is echoing Pope Benedict regarding Sunday Sabbaths.
We are told by the Catholic’s themselves that this is the mark of their authority. “Of course the Catholic Church claims that the change [Saturday Sabbath to Sunday] was her act… And the act is a mark of her ecclesiastical authority in religious things” (H.F. Thomas, Chancellor of Cardinal Gibbons)
The Bible also describes the Papacy as the Beast in Revelation 13 with the dreaded mark. But furthermore the United States are a representation of the Image of that Beast. (Rev 13:11-18) And we are told that it will eventually speak like a Dragon.
Rev 13:11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
I did a recent video on Kanye West called “Ye shall be as gods.” Which you can access on my youtube channel. You can also ask us for a free DVD copy as well by visiting my website www.thethirdangelsmessage.com. But please take care to especially read carefully this article with much prayer.
Rapping and Spiritualism – Rap gods
In the video we documented the rapper and his fellow associates such as Jay-z, Beyonce, Rihanna, etc. And their desire to be termed things like “I am” as well as “rap gods”.
Rapping is a term well known in the occult world and is one of the earliest discovered means of alleged spirit communication. Rapping includes any knocking, thumping, bumping or tapping associated with communication with the dead.
Maggie and Kate Fox known as the Fox sisters communicated with a spirit called “Mr. Splitfoot” asking the spirit to answer questions via rapping at Hydesville, New York in 1848. At first the spirit only rapped twice for yes and not at all for no, but eventually elder brother David Fox worked out an alphabet code, in which the spirit tediously communicated his message. The Fox sisters are known to be the founders of spiritualism in America.
Spiritualism is a term often associated with talking to the dead. However, those who believe and understand the Bible know that the Bible plainly teaches that “the dead know not anything.” (Ecclesiastes 9:5) And therefore, this is really communication with the angels that fell from heaven. We are told in the book of Revelation:
Revelation 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
How does this relate to rap music? Well, it is called “rapping” for a reason.
When I was younger I had a close friend who seemed to have an amazing talent in relaying rap messages and making rap songs. I was listening to the words and knowing him well, I wondered where he could come up with these words just flying off of his lips, especially considering that he wasn’t very intelligent, yet it seemed his vocabulary increased tenfold when he was doing this. He had a rhyme for everything. I knew that some of the topics he was talking about he had no knowledge of whatsoever. At that time being in the world and not believing in any kind of spiritual manifestations, I was amazed and did not know what to attribute this talent to. I didn’t believe in the devil or God, so it was hard to say that this was what it was. Spirits of devils. But years later it became very clear to me.
Jay-Z wrote a song once called Lucifer and he said:
”And when I perish
The meek shall inherit the earth
Until that time it’s on a poppin’ Chuuurch
‘That’s my word.
I never read the Bible in my life.’ ”
—Jay Z, Kanye West regarding The Making of Lucifer (Fade to Black)
Jay-Z tells us that he never read the Bible, but yet he was quoting from it. How? Well, rapping is really a form of mediumship for the spirit. In other words conjuring up devils. The same way that the Fox sisters were rapping in the mid 1800’s. The fallen spirits can use the person to do amazing things. And then the person can gain fame, fortune, and idolization all at the price of their soul. This all comes with the gifts of these spirits. So is it any wonder that Kanye West said in a live performance “I sold my soul to the devil: that’s a crappy deal. Least it came with a few toys like a Happy Meal.”
2016 Kanye West Breakdown and the Dragon Energy- The Devil and His Angels
In 2016 Kanye West had a nervous breakdown, or at least that was what was seen in the mainstream media. He went off about Hillary Clinton, Jay-Z and others in a rant of nonsense where he apparently was breaking away from the Satanic faction that he seemed so united to. The mainstream media at this point had a field day with his breakdown until about two weeks later when he met with President Trump and after meeting Trump Kanye West said the following:
“You don’t have to agree with trump but the mob can’t make me not love him. We are both dragon energy. He is my brother. I love everyone,” he wrote. “I don’t agree with everything anyone does. That’s what makes us individuals. And we have the right to independent thought.”(Kanye West on Donald Trump after His Nervous Breakdown)
The Bible is clear to us about who the dragon is? We’ve read it already in Revelation 12 concerning “the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”(Revelation 12:9)
You see the devil is really amazing at practicing deception. Almost to the point that some have even been fooled by the recent so-called conversion of Kanye West. I’ve witnessed many fooled by it myself on facebook, but also among some who would even be considered reformed Christians who are also sharing the light of Bible Prophecy. It is amazing that the devil can be so subtle and deceptive.
Satanism Rock Rap and Aleister Crowley
And just how deceptive is the devil. Satanist Aleister Crowley has been known as the wickedest man in the world. He once penned “I want blasphemy, murder, rape, revolution”, Crowley also said “I was not content to just believe in Satan, I wanted to be his chief of staff.” He is well known for penning a book called “The Book of the Law” and a very popular saying from it is the following:
”Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law.”
In other words, if it makes you feel good, then go ahead and do it. But the Bible obviously teaches that “sin is transgression of the law.” (1 John 3:4) and that “the wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23). And it also tells us that the very first lie of Satan was “Thou shall not surely die” (Genesis 3:4) This was spoken to Eve. In other words “Do what thou wilt Eve.” And thus the Luciferian religion began there, and the results that have followed have been no short list of sorrows and sufferings.
The cover of the Sergeant Pepper’s album by the Beatles showed a background of, according to Ringo Starr, people “we like and admire” (Hit Parade, Oct. 1976, p.14) And on the cover you’ll see Aleister Crowley on it. Some say that Crowley is actually Sergeant Pepper. This music inspired an entire generation. In fact I remember it being a part of my early life, my mother loved the Beatles. The Beatles broke up officially before I was even born, and John Lennon was assassinated when I was only 3 years old.
John Lennon put it pretty plainly when he said:
“The whole Beatle idea was to do what you want, right? To take your own responsibility, do what you want and try not to harm other people, right? DO WHAT THOU WILST, as long as it doesn’t hurt somebody. . .” (“The Playboy Interviews with John Lennon and Yoko Ono”, by David Sheff and G. Barry Golson, p. 61)
Crowley was definitely an inspiration to them. Jimmy Page and Robert Plant claim some of Led Zeppelins’ songs came via occultic “automatic handwriting,” including their popular “Stairway to Heaven.” Jimmy Page also had inscribed in the vinyl of their album Led Zeppelin III, Crowley’s famous “Do what thou wilt. So mete it Be.”
Now Rapper Jay-z who worked with Kanye West since 1996 and whom Kanye described as his “big brother” and even wrote a song about it helped Kanye West get his start in the music industry has also been known to be a fan of Satanist Aleister Crowley. And can be seen in the picture on the right with the famous Crowley saying “Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law” on his t-shirt.
It is hard to believe that these rappers and singers would want to be associated with someone so wicked such as Aleister Crowley who was Initiated to the highest levels of Freemasonry and also a high priest of the Golden Dawn. Crowley is also well known for saying things like “A white male child of perfect innocence and intelligence makes the most suitable victim.” We are told that In the US alone each year 400,000 children are reported missing.
In an email that was released from Tony Podesta to his brother John Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager we read “Dear Tony, I am so looking forward to the Spirit Cooking dinner at my place. Do you think you will be able to let me know if your brother is joining? All my love, Marina”.
Marina Abramovic has also been known to be mentoring Jay-Z, and much of Jay-Z’s music, as well as his clothing line contains many occultic symbols. As to what is going on behind the scenes, I cannot tell, however, even if they were only doing mock rituals of satanic sacrifices, should we be mocking something that serious?
It is recognized and said by many of these singers that by following Aleister Crowley’s instructions they could become more famous and better musicians and artists. So for Jay-Z, Kanye West’s mentor to name himself Jay-hovah, taking the name of the Father of heaven Himself, this was only fulfilling the words of Crowley when Crowley said “I want blasphemy.” His wife Beyonce also had a tour called the “I AM” tour. But the Bible tells us that the Father is the great “I AM” (Exodus 3:6) From the words alone, most Christians know what manner of Spirit this is, however, this may run much deeper than we’ve come to believe. And I’m coming to that.
But after this in many ways Kanye West has blasphemed also bringing a Jesus actor on stage, and having a song that claims “I am a god.” But also had a Bible made in his name where it inserts the word “Ye” in place of Jesus. This on top of the fact that he calls himself “Yeezus” taking a page out of the book of Aleister Crowley again who said “I want blasphemy.”
Almost all of these albums depict Kanye West with a crown as King. And then after all of this he is now coming out with an album entitled “Jesus is King.” Is he really speaking of Jesus or YEEZUS? Now we have to be careful because we don’t want to run someone down who is newly coming into the faith. But we also have to recognize here that there is still another spirit that is leading. May Jesus truly reign as King in this situation and the people understand before they worship YEEZUS.
Bowing to the IMAGE OF JESUS
In Daniel 3, something similar was happening in ancient Babylon, there was a statue set up by the King and all the people were called by the King of Babylon to bow to the statue at the sound of the music. Consider carefully the words:
Daniel 3:4-7 “Then an herald cried aloud, To you it is commanded, O people, nations, and languages, That at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king hath set up: And whoso falleth not down and worshippeth shall the same hour be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace. Therefore at that time, when all the people heard the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and all kinds of musick, all the people, the nations, and the languages, fell down and worshipped the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up.”
There is no doubt that the same thing is taking place today. Musicians and images of Christ, as well as an image to the Beast. You see we are told the following from an article entitled “Why Catholics are Raving about Kanye West’s New Album” we read the following:
”Even more surprising is the way that Kanye’s conversion has captured the attention of Catholics, many of whom were not previously fans of his work and art. What is it about Kanye that is so attractive to Catholics?
The title of Kanye’s latest album proclaims that “Jesus is King”. This message is refreshing, especially to young Catholics who were brought up being told that Jesus is just a friend or, essentially, a first century motivational speaker.” https://catholicherald.co.uk/commentandblogs/2019/10/27/why-are-catholics-raving-about-kanye-wests-new-album/
It is not only attracting Catholics, but “worldlings”. And it is not bringing conversion to hearts, but rather, the world is converting the church.
Kanye West – Sunday Services and Hollywood
Seems like Kanye West has been all over the news of late, and online there is article after article and video after video detailing the conversion Kanye West has made to Christianity and his new found faith, as well as his Sunday Services .
His wife talks of these services saying:
“It’s honestly more like a healing experience for my husband,” Kardashian West said. “It’s just music; there’s no sermon. It’s definitely something he believes in — Jesus — and there’s a Christian vibe. But there’s no preaching. It’s just a very spiritual Christian experience.”
On October 27th a giant release party was had in Los Angeles for the latest album Jesus is King as well as in IMAX theatres where they have a special playing of his “Jesus is King” movie promoting his album as well as his Sunday Services.
The name Hollywood comes from a tree called the Holly Tree. Anciently the druids and witches used to make their wands out of Holly wood and use them to cast spells. Put the two together and you’ll understand why Hollywood is in Los Angeles. Los Angeles means “the angels”or “lost angels” and it is the second largest city in the United States other than New York. Many desire their star on the boardwalk, but yet the Bible tells us “a third of the stars fell from heaven.” It is known as the city of fallen angels and the spiritualists are using the mainstream media to indoctrinate the masses.
It is the center of entertainment to the world, and unless you are promoting the agenda, it is highly unlikely that you make it very far in Hollywood. Especially if you are promoting Christianity. So just why is Kanye West being promoted so much in Hollywood? Perhaps because it is a Roman agenda.
It is Sun Worship. Sunday worship, the mark of the beast, the mark to be enforced by the image of the beast.
Sunday slowly crept in through pagan religions that conducted sun worship on the day of the sun during the 2nd century, and it came to be enforced even by law against Christians in the early 4th century. Those that continued to go with the Bible were slowly exterminated or banished to mountains and caves where their influence would not be widespread.
Many of Kanye’s songs have deep hidden occult messages that could only be learned by someone who has studied into the occult. And it appears that Kanye is well versed in much of it. In his desire to win over Christian fans just as most of the new agers teach he has taught that he is a god, and that we all can be gods. This came with the package of the first lie. (Gen 3:6)
Now again I bring you back to the Catholic Herald where they again tell us that “Kanye has proclaimed Christ’s kingship by talking about the Sabbath. People have mocked him for singing about stores closing on Sunday (“Closed on Sunday / You’re my Chick-Fil-A”),” (Catholic Herald)
Kanye Benedict and SUNDAY LAWS
The article continues and don’t miss these next two paragraphs from the Catholic Herald article:
”With a remarkable intuition, Kanye has proclaimed Christ’s kingship by talking about the Sabbath. People have mocked him for singing about stores closing on Sunday (“Closed on Sunday / You’re my Chick-Fil-A”), but this practice is connected to ideas for which people have less contempt – freeing captives, overcoming addiction, getting out of debt. “They say the week start on Monday / But the strong start on Sunday / Won’t be in bondage to any man,” Kanye sings. “All the captives are forgiven / Time to break down all the prisons / Every man, every woman / There is freedom from addiction.”(Kanye was Christ-haunted long before ‘Jesus Is King – Catholic Herald)
And here is where it get’s interesting when it talks about LEGISLATION. In other words Sunday Laws. Notice:
”Kanye is making the same point as Benedict XVI. The rap star rightly stresses the importance of Sabbath observance while linking it to the end of imprisonment, slavery, and debt peonage. As Benedict put it: “THE SABBATH IS THE HEART OF LEGISLATION. If all social subordinations are suspended on the first or the seventh day, and if all social arrangements are revised in the rhythm of seven times seven years, then they will always be relative to the mutual freedom and common ownership of all.” (Kanye was Christ-haunted long before ‘Jesus Is King – Catholic Herald)
So the Sabbath is the HEART of LEGISLATION. And Kanye is echoing Pope Benedict’s ideas. That is the mark of the Papacy legislated in America. And thus the title of his new song “Closed on Sundays” is right down the Papal line. And that mark of the beast(Sunday) is to be enforced in America.
The Dragon Energy – The Dragon, Beast and False Prophet
You see when Kanye West says about himself and Trump we both have “dragon energy”, we need to understand about this dragon energy.
In Revelation 13:2 we read that “the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.” And the mark of his authority is Sunday. Yes, the dragon, through Pagan Rome, gave its seat to the adulterous Papacy, the first beast of Revelation 13. And the mark of the Beast is Sunday. The Dragon symbolizes the State or secular power giving its power to the Church or Papacy. A Church and State union. But Revelation 13 tells us of this being duplicated in the United States and the same power being exercised.
Revelation 13:11-12 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth ALL THE POWER of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
So this beast speaks like a “DRAGON”.(Rev 13:11) Hmmm… But furthermore, it exercises the same power that was given to the Papacy by the DRAGON. (Rev 13:2, 12) You see there is a threefold union taking place here.
Donald Trump has vowed GREAT POWER back to the churches. This fulfilling the verse that says “He excerciseth all the same POWER.” Paula White his spiritual mentor has just been calling for a theocracy this month. This has already been called for by Attorney General William Barr as well as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. The direction here is obvious. This is the “dragon energy.” And Satanism is growing, not just in the secular world, but IN THE CHURCHES.
You see even women who are well known for communicating with spirits like Oprah can boast of Sunday by keeping Super Soul Sundays. And she is classed the Queen of all media. But also notice the following website where it is said that Katy Perry and Arianna Huffington of the Huffington Post started a new movement called “Shutoff Sundays”. https://medium.com/thrive-global/katy-perry-and-arianna-huffington-start-a-new-movement-shutoff-sundays-f5ddd0f32b86
Not only that but Huffington has been featured on Oprah’s show Super Soul Sunday’s, and Katy Perry has been spotted at Kanye West’s Sunday Services. And this is only the beginning of the long list of celebrity’s who are taking a stand for Sundays. And weren’t we told that the Spirits of devils, the dragon and his angels would go to the Kings of the earth. Queen Oprah, King Yeezus? As the Bible said:
Rev 16:13-14 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.
You see, war is being made, “the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.” (Revelation 12:17)
Are you awake enough to see it all happening as God told us it would in his book? Another book which has put some of these scriptures together over 100 years ago is the Great Controversy. And I want you to read the following quote after knowing what you’ve just read in this article so far:
”Through the two great errors, the immortality of the soul and Sunday sacredness, Satan will bring the people under his deceptions. While the former lays the foundation of spiritualism, the latter creates a bond of sympathy with Rome. The Protestants of the United States will be foremost in stretching their hands across the gulf to grasp the hand of spiritualism; they will reach over the abyss to clasp hands with the Roman power; and under the influence of this threefold union, this country will follow in the steps of Rome in trampling on the rights of conscience.
As spiritualism more closely imitates the nominal Christianity of the day, it has greater power to deceive and ensnare. Satan himself is converted, after the modern order of things. He will appear in the character of an angel of light. Through the agency of spiritualism, miracles will be wrought, the sick will be healed, and many undeniable wonders will be performed. And as the spirits will profess faith in the Bible, and manifest respect for the institutions of the church, their work will be accepted as a manifestation of divine power.
The line of distinction between professed Christians and the ungodly is now hardly distinguishable. Church members love what the world loves and are ready to join with them, and Satan determines to unite them in one body and thus strengthen his cause by sweeping all into the ranks of spiritualism. Papists, who boast of miracles as a certain sign of the true church, will be readily deceived by this wonder-working power; and Protestants, having cast away the shield of truth, will also be deluded. Papists, Protestants, and worldlings will alike accept the form of godliness without the power, and they will see in this union a grand movement for the conversion of the world and the ushering in of the long-expected millennium.“ (Great Controversy 588-9)
We are about to witness miraculous and powerful things. But many of these miracles will be wrought by the devil and his angels.
This quote is word for word the current situation. And was given to us in detail over 100 years ago. If you’ve read this article through carefully, I’m sure you are awake to what time it is. This is all coming to pass brethren. You see it happening. May you be among those who truly see, but also that we are among those who stand tall with the banner of Christ raised high. Blessings, DB.
