The internet is completely buzzing with Illuminati rumors about the video for pop star Ke$ha’s new single Die Young. The video, which features the singer as a satanic cult leader, heading an occult ritual inside of a church, is filled with anti-Christian, blasphemous imagery. As many sites race to decipher the meaning of the video (with most calling it a big publicity stunt), when looking at the career of Ke$ha, it becomes apparent that like many pop stars before her, she has been promoting a satanic message from the onset. And this blasphemous video is just the next step as an artist in rebellion against God and indoctrinating society into following the plans of Satan.
Do As Thou Wilt – Ke$ha Embraces Aleister Crowley’s Philosophy
“Do as thou wilt shalt be the whole of the law. Lust, enjoy all things of sense and rapture. Fear not that any God shall deny thee for this.” – Aleister Crowley
“I just want to have fun. I think across the board, with my music, my style, my makeup, and my sexuality in life, I don’t think it should be taken so seriously. The reason my record is called Animal is because I am an animal, we all are, and we have crazy instincts that maybe aren’t quote-unquote right or socially acceptable, but f— that. I think people should give in to what they feel like doing at the time and be a raw animal.” – Ke$ha (source)
Satanist, occultist and Freemason Aleister Crowley, one of the foremost black magic practitioner’s of the 20th century, and founder of the occult religion Thelema, made the above quote of “doing what thou wilt” as the foundation of his text, The Book of The Law. Crowley’s ideas and philosophies on engaging in any sexual, deviant or rebellious activity and entering the occult, have been embraced by musicians and pop stars for decades. Singer John Lennon of the Beatles, one of the most influential music groups of all time in the promotion of sinful rebellion, 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)”
The Beatles revered Crowley so much they named their Sgt. Pepper album in his honor and released it on the anniversary of his death (he also pictured on the album cover). The “do what thou wilt” philosophy will always bring a person away from God and closer to Satan. The Bible says: “For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry.”(1 Samuel 15:23). The human heart, in its natural state, has a tendency towards sin, and giving int the desires of the heart will only start a process of evil. The Book of James Chapter 1 says: “But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.” Just giving into all manner of lust will lead to a path away from God and towards, witchcraft, idolatry and death.
From the start of her career, Ke$ha has promoted the message that everyone should act on every lust and desire they have with no regard for morals, rules or certainly God. She made her debut in pop music performing in Katy Perry’s I Kissed A Girl, an ode to lesbian experimentation that became a smash hit. Once Ke$ha’s own album came out, the theme of rebellion continued. The message of her song Animal embraces this concept:
I am in love with what we are
Not what we should be
And I am, I am starstruck
With every part of this whole story
So if it’s just tonight
The animal inside, let it live then die
Like it’s the end of time
Like everything inside
Let it live then die
Being in love with “what we are” is a rejection of any call to repentance or following the commandments of God. The Bible says that every person on the Earth has “sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23). According to her album, drinking, doing drugs and rampant sex are all acceptable acts and should be done in order to release ‘the animal’. And notice that living in sin should be done to the point of death. Ke$ha teaches a message that young people should do whatever they feel at all times. This is marketing a satanic message to the masses through the use of catchy music that is fun to dance to. There does not need to be a secret code used to spread the message of rebellion.
Here are some of the lyrics of her song Booty Call which is a celebration of having a strictly sexual relationship with a guy or female.
I like you
Don’t want to
I really wanna
And let you know
That I really
Really really really
Don’t get attached
When I call you up
Trying to get some
A– all night oh oh oh
Don’t want a boyfriend
Just want to get some
Yeah yeah yeah
I really want
To get it
On with you
And from the
That I saw you
Knew you were gonna
Be my new
Her sexual sin promotion continues on her song Blah Blah Blah.
Coming out your mouth with your blah, blah, blah
Zip your lips like a padlock
And meet me in the back With the jack and the jukebox
I don’t really care where you live at
Just turn around, boy, let me hit that
Don’t be a little bi— with your chit chat
Just show me where your d— at
The Bible is clear that fornication or sexual activity outside of marriage, is sin:
Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred… Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. – Galatians 5:19-21.
Sexual sin is an easy avenue to fall into outright rebellion against God. Crowley premised much of his beliefs on sexual “freedom” and promiscuity. An admitted bisexual and pedophile, he encouraged open sexuality, not just for recreation but as a way to lash out at the Christian faith:
‘To me, every dirty act was simply a sacrament of sin, a passionately religious protest against Christianity, which was for me the symbol of all vileness, meanness, treachery, falsehood and oppression.’ (Aleister Crowley, Satanic Extracts)
The Bible explains that because of our sinful nature, humanity is at odds with God and will seek to oppose Him when the descent into sin goes far enough:
Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the LORD shall have them in derision. – Psalm 2:1-4.
The unbelieving world rages against God to remove the “bands and cords”, which are His Holy laws, off of themselves. Without Godly influence, a person will move closer to Satan. There is no middle ground. And pop culture has been instrumental in shifting society’s attitudes from following Biblical standards and pursuing righteousness, to a self-centered, morally ambiguous rebellion.
Ke$ha’s whose music is heavily marketed to teens and pre-teens reinforces the idea of doing whatever the heart desire. She has posted nude photos of herself, often hints that she is bisexual and brags about her sexual experience:
“I knew everything about sex before I was even seven. My mom left me at home when I was 14 with a credit card, and a box of condoms and the keys to the car and said, ‘Don’t get pregnant and don’t drink and drive’. “I had to be responsible for myself.” In the same interview Ke$ha spoke of wanting adult themes for her concerts, throwing condoms at her audience and “violating” them with her performance. (source).
The pop singer also revealed that not only did she not know her father growing up, her mother told her she was not sure who he was. Ke$ha has also featured transgendered dancers in her shows, been an outspoken advocate for homosexual rights and even officiated a gay marriage ceremony. Thus once the rebellion begins, it continues its downward spiral into every type of sexual sin possible. This again is line with the “do as thou wilt” philosophy and Satan’s agenda. Pop culture and the mass media want to pass off all these behaviors as exciting, cool and even empowering. But the Bible says otherwise:
now ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. — 1 Corinthians 6:9-10.
All the exciting, rebellious behavior puts a person at odds with God. If you are inviting sin into your life in these ways, it will only lead to God removing more of His Holy influence. And when that is removed, a person’s desires will be come even more sinister. And in Ke$ha’s case, that was quite apparent.
Ke$ha’s first album also featured the song Cannibal, in which she sings about performing cannibalistic acts on a young man:
I eat boys up, breakfast and lunch
Then when I’m thirsty, I drink their blood
Carnivore animal, I am a cannibal
I eat boys up, you better run
I am cannibal (Cannibal, cannibal, I am)
I am cannibal (Cannibal, I am) (I’ll eat you up)
I am cannibal (Cannibal, cannibal, I am)
Whenever you tell me I’m pretty
That’s when the hunger really hits me
Your little heart goes pitter patter
I want you liver on a platter
Use your finger to stir my tea
And for dessert, I’ll suck you teeth
Be too sweet and you’ll be a goner
Yup, I’ll pull a Jeffrey Dahmer
The lyrics of this song are a celebration of gruesome murder of another person. Jeffrey Dahmer was a notorious serial killer who was sentenced to death for several murders in which he ate his victims. And this is the singer that parents today are letting their elementary students listen to (and even making their kids dance to it so they can post the videos on the internet).
During her performance of the song in Australia on her Sleazy Tour, Ke$ha took what was meant to appear to be an animal heart and proceeded to drink ‘blood’ from it. Blood drinking is common in occult circles as a way to attain more power. At this point the question must be asked: what spirit is leading these performances and these lyrics? Is it a Spirit of God? No, it’s quite the contrary. Sin-promoting music is a reflection of the evil spiritual influences in one’s life. The Bible describes the state of those who are unsaved as being led by a similar spirit:
Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others. – Ephesians 2:2-3.
The Apostle Paul, writing to the church in Ephesus explained that before they were believers in Jesus Christ, even those Christians lived their lives under the influence of the “prince of the power of the air”, another name for Satan. The Bible is clear that Satan has been given temporary authority in the Earth to set up a system of temptation to lead people away from The Lord and into sin. And the ultimate goal of the Devil is to lead as many people to hell as possible. And notice what Paul lists as the tell-tale signs of still living under this influence – pursuing whatever lusts and desires of the flesh that you have in your life – and living as if there is no consequence to sin. Precisely what Aleister Crowley, Ke$ha and so many other pop artists promote today. A person does not have to be in a secret society or cult group to be under the Devil’s influence. They just have to be far from God. Do not be deceived.
Playing the Devil
As her career started to take off, Ke$ha of course was accepted among the music industry’s elite. The multi-platinum artist then sought out heavy metal rocker Alice Cooper for a collaboration. Their song, What Baby Wants again has the theme of destroying a person’s body and taking their soul as well. The lyrics feature Cooper and Ke$ha alternating each line, having a conversation about Cooper’s soul. And it does not hide its Satanic message:
She’ll take your bleeding heart and your soul, no regrets
Coz what baby wants (What baby wants wants wants)
Baby gets (She’s gonna gonna gonna get)
What baby wants (What baby wants wants wants)
Baby gets (She’s gonna gonna gonna get)
I gotta pretty face
Yeah but I’ve seen what’s hiding underneath
You like my pretty mouth
But you got razor blades instead of teeth
And now it’s too too late for you
Oh yeah tell me what you gonna do
I’m gonna drain your veins and bathe in your blood
Honey I seen worse then you
I’ll make you sit, beg, roll over, play dead
Ain’t gonna be your little pet
When asked about the idea behind the song, Cooper was very clear about its Satanic nature:
When I met [Ke$ha], I had an idea for a song,” Cooper continued. “I needed a character to play the devil. In the song, she finally has enough, and it’s time for Alice to pay her with his soul. We decided to call it ‘What Baby Wants Baby Gets’ because in the song he tries to say, ‘Hey, that wasn’t part of the deal’ and she says, ‘No, no, no, you don’t understand, what baby wants, baby gets!’ For me, it was a perfect line for her to say.” (source).
With songs about rampant fornication, homosexuality, cannibalism and bargains with Satan, it should be clear that Ke$ha’s music is promoting rebellion against God. Jesus Christ said: “A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.” (Luke 6:44-45). What is in the heart of an artist that would make this kind of music? And the listener would do well to consider what words they are singing when they listen to these songs thousands of times. Scripture explains that sin is a downward spiral that gets worse as a person is pulled farther from God. And pop culture has helped accelerate humanity’s move from The Lord. When a reprobate spirit that has no regard for moral issues, the next obvious step is embracing outright occultism. And thus making a song where you are portraying Satan taking someone’s soul is now embraced.
The Spirit Journey
Prior to releasing her new album, Ke$ha explained how she went on what she called a “spirit journey.”
Ke$ha has revealed that her new album Warrior was inspired by a spiritual journey she went on. The Supernatural singer traveled the world without any bodyguards or members of staff, stopping at various places for humanitarian work or experiences that helped her find herself.
“The theme of this record is magic. I went on a spirit journey by myself,” the 25-year-old told Ryan Seacrest on his KISS FM radio show. “No security guard. No managers. I just went around the world and lived on a boat. “I was in Africa rehabilitating baby lions,” Ke$ha shared. “I went diving with great white sharks, and just went on this crazy spirit quest. I got hypnotized, and I just really wanted this record to be really positive, really raw, really vulnerable and about the magic of life,” she explained. (source)
Once open sin has started, the transition into occultism is always the next step. Hypnosis is a very easy way of connecting with demonic forces and opening oneself to negative spiritual influence. Deuteronomy 18 is where The Lord specifically prohibits this practice:
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. Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. 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. – Deuteronomy 18:10-12.
Enchanters were known for putting people or animals into a trance-like state, very similar to what is called hypnotism today. The Bible is very stern about these practices because they invite the presence of demonic spirits. Acts 16 details the link between the occult world and demons:
And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying: The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation. And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour. – Acts 16:16-18.
The woman in this account was able to tell the future through the demon that possessed her. And she was so good that she made money for her handlers. And notice that her statement was actually true – Paul and his companions were believers in God. Yet Paul knew it was the demon speaking and not the actual woman. This shows the level of deception that can take place when one dabbles in the occult.
During Ke$ha’s journey she tweeted the following photo:
As the Scripture quoted above said, “rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft.” Notice that in the photo from her Spirit Journey, Ke$ha is wearing a pentagram, Baphomet-style earring (the inverted pentagram in a circle, known as the Baphomet Sigil, is the official symbol of the church of Satan) as well as a lightning bolt symbol (also used as a symbol for the Devil) on the location of the pineal gland or “third eye”, the location of the path to godhood in many esoteric belief systems. Dabbling with the occult, playing ouija, hypnosis and similar activities make it much easier for demonic forces to influence the thoughts and feelings of a person. And Ke$ha did just that.
To no surprise, on this same trip Ke$ha claimed to have a sexual experience with a ghost. Beginning and End has detailed other artists – like Beyonce and Nikki Minaj, who both have stated openly that spirits overtake them during their musical performances. But in this instance a demonic entity overtook Ke$ha, for sexual purposes (interestingly, Katy Perry, who helped launch Ke$ha’s career made a song about having sexual relations with a demonic/alien entity). And rather than fear this experience, Ke$ha said she was “open to it” and made a song for her new album about it. Just as Aleister Crowley taught, once a person is steeped into occultism, it is easy to blatantly disrespect God and promote it to the world.
The ‘Die Young’ Video
“It’s about me being a cult leader at the end of the world,” Ke$ha said in an interview with Capital FM. “And everybody else is kind of being scared and hiding. We are running around like wild people, making out with each other and taking over a small border town in Mexico. The federals are after us because we’re so wild!” – Ke$ha on the meaning of the Die Young video. (source)
“Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them; While the sun, or the light, or the moon, or the stars, be not darkened, nor the clouds return after the rain [B&E: the darkened sun and stars are a prophetic reference to the end of world]: In the day when the keepers of the house shall tremble, and the strong men shall bow themselves, and the grinders cease because they are few, and those that look out of the windows be darkened, And the doors shall be shut in the streets, when the sound of the grinding is low, and he shall rise up at the voice of the bird, and all the daughters of musick shall be brought low..” – Ecclesiastes 12:1-5.
Here is the video for Die Young:
In light of everything detailed about Ke$ha, the video for Die Young begins to make much more sense. The video embraces everything Ke$ha has promoted through her career – sexual promiscuity, rebellion, recklessness and living fast to die at a young age. But what has thrown so many people for a loop is the open display of occult symbolism. As she stated above, the theme for her entire album is “magic.” Again, this is the path that sin will take a person on as they continue to deny God and rebel against Him. Just as Aleister Crowley’s life inevitably led him to “magick”, Ke$ha’s career has headed down the exact same road.
From the onset of the video the message is purely occultic. A hearse labeled “evil” drives Ke$ha and her followers to a town in Mexico. And the first place they go to is a church. Once Ke$ha kicks the door open, they proceed to destroy it, knocking over pews, breaking objects and spray painting the walls and floors with symbols. Al the while images of inverted crosses are flashing on the screen. The inverted, or upside-down cross is a symbol of Satanism and blasphemy against the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. This is very much fulfilling the prophetic words of Psalm 2: the video is truly raging against God and Jesus Christ. It is outright blasphemy and an expression of hatred for God and the divine rules and commandments of the Bible.
The rest of the video features Ke$ha and her group gyrating, simulating fornication and dancing under a pentagram, another prominent symbol in magic and witchcraft. The pentagram symbolizes the union of the four elements – earth, wind, fire and air which any involved witchcraft believe can summon the “Fifth Element”, ether or the spirit realm, by which those in witchcraft can access demonic forces to gain powers and supernatural abilities.
All of these sinful ideas must be made normal and commonplace for society. And the forces of evil are certainly being successful on this front, from Harry Potter, Twilight and the hundreds of books and TV shows on witchcraft and the occult, as well the rampant sexual sin promoted on TV and the movies, society is indeed living as if it will “die young.” And this is all falling into the plan of the enemy. Artists like Ke$ha are being used to make all of this more acceptable, exciting and embraced in everyday life – to the point that even outright blasphemy and witchcraft is just fine for children to be practicing while their parents put it on Youtube.
Live or Die – The Decision Is Yours
As the world falls deeper into sinful rebellion, God continues to call all people to repentance and faith in Jesus Christ. There truly is a good and evil. There is a right and wrong. And there is a Heaven and Hell. Despite what Ke$ha or any other artists promote, we are not animals. We are humans, who have souls, made in the image of God. The same God who will judge our souls once we die, young or old. The world system, headed by Satan, wants humanity to forget God in favor of whatever satisfies their lusts, and many in a desire for money and fame, have become willing servants in promoting evil for gain. Jesus Christ said: “No man 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.” (Matthew 6:24). Who do you serve?
Understanding occult symbols, and esoteric meanings is all good and well, but will do nothing for the state of your soul. You, the reader have to take an account of your life. Have you been living in rebellion against God? Have you been raging against Jesus Christ in your heart, words and actions? If so, then it is time to seek forgiveness. The Bible says: “the wages of sin is death.” Aleister Crowley died as a broken, heroine-addicted, diseased, frail man. And the ultimate reward for “doing what thou wilt” will be an eternity in hell for those who die without forgiveness of the sins they have committed all their lives. But unlike the character who Ke$ha plays in her video, Jesus Christ really did die – giving His life to be a sacrifice and take God’s wrath so that those who believe in Him can be forgiven and redeemed from this sinful, satanically-influenced world.
The marketing of a sinful life is reaching a fever pitch in culture today. But the good news is that God is will ready and waiting to forgive all those who come to Him. 1 John 1:9 says: “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” This is how peace is made from the war every person is at with God before believing in Him. We do not know when the end of the world will occur. But God does. And the time all people have today is a testament to God’s mercy. 2 Peter 3:9 says: “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” Rather than using one’s time to be in wild rebellion, Jesus Christ calls people to use their time to get right with God by putting faith in Him for the forgiveness of their sins. Lord willing, Ke$ha and her many fans will understand and believe it.
