In the World system both God & devil are interested in Celebrities because through them the kingdom they support can have advancement either for God or devil.
Who is a Celebrity?
A celebrity is a famous or an influential personnel.
The power of celebrity was what made the prophesy fulfilled, that Jesus would be placed in virgin tomb through Joseph of Arimathaea and Nicodemus[John 19: 38-40]
Without the power of influence, the power of God can be limited [Ecc 9:13-14].
Now let us go to the discussion ‘Devil and celebrity’
Ahab and Jezebel stood against the prophets of God [1King 19]
The devil was empowered to do all what God can do but he can never give salvation and eternal Joy.
As God is looking for someone to use, the devil also seeks daily for whom to use desperately right now because he knows his time is limited.
We have celebrity in business sector, Academic sector, Music, Theatre. etc.
OUR FOCUS; MUSIC CELEBRITIES.
The devil’s agenda is to use celebrities. Especially the musical artists to carry out his plans of returning the world to ante-deluvian.
Ante-deluvian world was the time before the flood of the Noah’s account
Fallen angels were permitted with humanity and in disobedience took human women as wives and produced “NEPHILIM”
HOW DOES THE DEVIL PLAN TO CARRY OUT HIS PLAN?
He invites celebrities to occultisms, entices them with the benefits that they can get from influence, Power, riches etc. (Solomon [1King 11-5] ASHTORETH, THE GODDESS OF THE ZIDONIANS.
Devil in turn uses the celebrity’s skills, talent and influences to destroy the generation.
In the world we are today, there is a society called Illuminati meaning ‘new age movement’; this organization has a sign called ‘pyramid’ which means ‘age of gods’
For instance, through songs he (devil) gets to people because song happen to be a very strong and powerful tool to easily capture the heart of man and destroy him. Song has nothing to do with physical body but it is attached directly to the soul, mind, and heart. (Someone ones said MUSIC IS THE FOOD TO THE SOUL)
Man is a spirit being that has soul (with a tripartite formation)[mind, will and emotions] and lives inside a body (1 Thess 5:23 )
Devil knows that you can only love God through your heart, soul, and mind (mark 12:30)
Soul = Thought
HOW HE GETS TO THE BELIEVERS
- Peer Pressure
- Low Self esteem
- Bad Company
THE WAYS OUT
- Being genuinely born again (john 3:3)
- Soul must be renewed (James 1:21, Romans 12:2) through the genuine word of God
- Let your soul be totally focused on God (Phil 4: 6-8)
- Fill your minds with the things that are edifying (healthy spiritual things)
- Set boundaries
- Pray to be totally free form the hold of these evils spirits.
