Right on the heels of Madonna’s Occult Ritual performance at the Super Bowl (which we covered in “Ye Shall Be as God: Madonna’s Super Bowl Occult Satanic Ritual”) , the Grammy’s Provided yet another occult ritual in the form of Nicki Minaj’s performance of “Roman Holiday.” While the performance has spawned tens of thousands of articles about whether it was an “Illuminati message” to the public or even somehow linked to the death of Whitney Houston, what can be said with certainty is that Nicki Minaj is among the many mega pop stars in music today who promote the idea of having alter egos, second personalities and “losing control of themselves” when this alter takes over. The Bible shows that this type of twisted behavior can really happen and often was the result of demonic possession or influence.
The Many Alter Egos of Nicki Minaj
As pop culture continues to sexualize women and young children, Nicki Minaj has been one of the worst influences on children and specifically, young girls, in a long time. Minaj, who created her stage name after a vulgar sexual act, has lured millions of young girls around the world to her music with her “Barbie”, bubble gum image. Her styling is aimed to project that she is a bubble gum cute girly girl as she is often wearing doll-type pink wigs and clothing. She also calls herself the “Black Hanna Montana” a reference to the Nickelodeon character portrayed by child star Miley Cyrus. However, her lyrics are far from G-rated. Her is a sampling from her smash hit song “Superbass“:
And he ill, he real, he might got a deal
He pop bottles and he got the right kind of build
He cold, he dope, he might sell coke
He always in the air, but he never fly coach
He a m—in trip, trip, sailor of the ship, ship
When he make it drip, drip kiss him on the lip, lip
That’s the kind of dude I was lookin’ for
And yes you’ll get slapped if you’re lookin’ ho
Yes I did, yes I did
Somebody please tell him who the eff I is
I am Nicki Minaj, I mack them dudes up
Back coupes up, and chuck the deuce up
And I think I like him better with the fitted cap on
He ain’t even gotta try to put the mac on
He just gotta give me that look, when he give me that look
Then the panties comin’ off, off, unh
Please note that just one entry of the video for this song on youtube has over 200 million views. This is a song that girls all over the world are listening to. Meanwhile Minaj then entices men with her overdeveloped (and rumored to be surgically enhanced) body, revealing outfits and X-rated lyrics. Here are some lines from her song Freaky Girl.
hmm You Want A Feaky Girl? Welcome To Nicki world. Umm Let Me Think
What Can I Do To Kick It Off How Bout I —–
What I Look Like Turning Down Some H–d
I Mean That’s Sorta Like A Bird Turning Down Some Bread.
You Can Eat It Like A Treat, You Can Squart it, You Can Skeet,
I’m A Freak I Love To Beat Just Don’t Get None In My Sheets.
But Every Time I Pop The C–i Gucci Start Chokin Me
Now I Kinda Scared I Got A Feelin Gucci Stalkin Me.
Sex Game Kinky, N—s Call Me Pinky
F— a President I Am Nicki Lewinsky.
Very Freaky Girl Don’t Bring Her To Mamma
First You Get Her Name Then You Get Her Number
Then You Get Some Brain In The Front Seat Of The Hummer,
Then You Get Some Brain In The Front Seat Of The Hummer
(Please note that “brain” is a reference to fellatio). Nicki is bragging about her promiscuity (and nicknaming herself after Monica Lewinsky, the former White House intern who became infamous for her involvement in an adulterous sex scandal with President Bill Clinton). Again, please note that there are hundreds and hundreds of worse lyrics from Minaj’s music that will not be posted because of their vulgarity. We only post these as examples to highlight that millions of young girls and boys are listening to this music every day (in fact the internet was buzzing after a viral video of an 8-year old girl and her younger sister singing Super Bass went viral. The video became such a hit that the two girls were invited onto the Ellen DeGeneres Show to perform the song with Minaj). This rapper is constantly promoting the most X-rated, vile behavior possible to listeners (including her many lyrics promoting her bisexuality).
Jesus said this about children: “5And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me. 6But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.” The corruption of children with music like this is by itself satanic. Promoting the images, clothing and behavior of artists like Minaj, Lady Gaga or Beyonce is enticing children to sin and clearly this is something that God takes very seriously.
At the same time Minaj has utter hatred for other women rappers and constantly espouses violence and disrespect for any female rap competition or “haters”. What is just as disturbing is the way in which Minaj switches voices and accents all throughout her music at rapid-fire speed. She will go from rhyming with a New York accent to rapping verses in a faux-British accent or like a California Valley Girl, all giving the impression of someone who is possessed and suffering from multiple personality disorder. Here she is in an interview discussing her many personalities:
And here is another:
Promotion of Mind Control
Whether it’s by design or “inspiration’ Minaj and other music stars today seem to be using imagery and symbolism for programmed mind control. This article is not asserting that the artists have been mind-controlled themselves but they are certainly promoting it. Frtiz Springmeier, a Christian author, researcher and speaker, has written extensively about the Illuminati, New World order, satanic cults and their presence in modern politics and society. He has also written at length about mind control and specifically, “Project Monarch” an extension of the government mind control program called “MK-Ultra.” This program’s Wikipedia entry states:
Project MKULTRA, or MK-ULTRA, was the code name for a covert, illegal CIA human experimentation program, run by the CIA’s Office of Scientific Intelligence. This official U.S. government program began in the early 1950s, continued at least through the late 1960s, and used U.S. and Canadian citizens as its test subjects. The published evidence indicates that Project MKULTRA involved the use of many methodologies to manipulate individual mental states and alter brain functions, including the surreptitious administration of drugs and other chemicals, hypnosis, sensory deprivation, isolation, verbal and sexual abuse, as well as various forms of torture.
Springmeier writes that through the use of mind-control techniques, the subject can begin to form alter egos that can fully take over the consciousness of the person and act as a separate person altogether. And there is a spiritual nature to this programming as well:
Clear back in 1917, long before superman appeared in comics and movies, Aleister Crowley was writing about a Superman. The magical idea is to capture a soul from the 4th dimension. In the book Moonchild, the villa used to produce a Moonchild was called “The Butter-fly-Net”. The Monarch Project then which is named after the Monarch butterfly is also an allusion to the Moonchild project where Butterflies are an allusion to souls (what Christians call demonic spirits). The actual rituals carried out to create a Moonchild are described in detail in three of Crowley’s writings. A vague description of the rituals can be seen by reading the book ‘Moonchild’. The ritual took place at a villa nicknamed The Butterfly Net. (The Illuminati Formula to Create An Undetectable Total Mind Controlled Slave, Cisco Wheeler and Fritzspringmeier, p. 46)
As usual, the name of Satanist Aleister Crowley lurks in the background. Crowley, who referred to himself as “the Beast” (the Biblical title for the Antichrist) and “666”, in his writings encouraged torture and sacrifice for the gain of occult power and control the mind and soul of the victim (ibid. p. 47). Thus the alter-ego of the mind-controlled victim is at the control and enslaved to their “programmers.” So even in the formal area of mind-control techniques, it is just another means of contacting demonic spirits.
Here is Minaj, in her Barbie alter ego. Notice the blank stare of one who is not conscious and the presence of Monarch butterflies.
And another promo picture for Minaj filled with Monarch butterflies.
And the cover of Minaj’s first album, Pink Friday. Again, notice that she depicts herself as a doll with no arms and completely in a trance-like state.
Nicki also promotes her body (which numerous sites have alleged to be surgically enhanced) and looks to men and young boys.
The Grammy Performance
All this culminated with her performance at the 2012 Grammy Awards. From the time of her red carpet entry, it was clear Minaj was looking to make a spiritual statement.With an actor playing “the Pope” the stage was set her performance, the final one of the night. Dubbed “The Exorcism of Roman Zolanski”, it opened with Minaj sitting a Catholic confessional with a priest against displaying the look of someone who is demon possessed. She then sings the first few lines from her song Roman’s Revenge, which she sang with rapper Eminem (who also happens to have an alter ego called ‘Slim Shady’ that he describes as a different person inside of him.) The tape of the Grammy performance is below.
It then cuts to a film that plays out a scene from one of the many “girl possessed by demons” films of the past several years. Again, we see a deranged Minaj brushing her hair in the mirror (please remember this image). As the priest enters she crawls up the ceiling. The clear intention is to show that in this film she is demon possessed.
The Bible on Demon Possession
The Bible details demon possession through most of human history. The Book of Ephesians chapter 6 instructs that human beings are not the enemies of Christians, spiritual forces are: “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places“ (Ephesians 6:12). The principalities and powers are just formal titles for the hierarchy of rebel angels and demons that are under Satan’s leadership. Evil demonic spirit roam the Earth, have no bodily form, but are able to inhabit the bodies of certain people and control them. During the time of Jesus Christ on Earth, demonic activity was rampant. Jesus Christ encountered many people who was possessed by a demon, also known as a “devil” or “unclean spirit.”
And in the synagogue there was a man, which had a spirit of an unclean devil, and cried out with a loud voice, Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art; the Holy One of God. And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him. And when the devil had thrown him in the midst, he came out of him, and hurt him not. And they were all amazed, and spake among themselves, saying, What a word is this! for with authority and power he commandeth the unclean spirits, and they come out. And the fame of him went out into every place of the country round about. – Luke 4:33-37
Jesus was not only able to address the demon inside of the man, the demon fully knew who Jesus was. Calling Jesus “The Holy One of God” was a title used for the Messiah (it is used in Psalm 89). And Jesus clearly has power over the demon. The demon’s agenda is clear, control of a person for their own use. Jesus described their plan saying: “When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first” (Matthew 12:43-46) . In another encounter, Jesus confronted a man who indeed was possessed by many demons:
And they came over unto the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes. And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit, Who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains: Because that he had been often bound with fetters [leg irons] and chains, and the chains had been plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: neither could any man tame him. And always, night and day, he was in the mountains, and in the tombs, crying, and cutting himself with stones. But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped him, And cried with a loud voice, and said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of the most high God? I adjure thee by God, that thou torment me not. For he said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit. And he asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many. (Mark 5:1-9)
Here again, the demons know Jesus is the Son of God. Interestingly here we see the demons controlling the man’s behavior, so much so that he was breaking the chains people were using to restrain him. They were giving the man strength and making him act insane. In the Old Testament we see that demons can just be used to influence people. In the book of 1 Kings chapter 22, Ahab, the King of Israel who was wicked and worshiped pagan gods in defiance of the true God, wanted to join forced with King Jehosephat and go to war against the Assyrians. As the Kings conferred on their plan, 400 prophets of Ahab’s pagan gods came before the two Kings and predicted victory for them in battle. However, Jehosephat knew at that time the prophet Michaiah was a true prophet of The Lord and adjured Ahab to seek his counsel. Michaiah, not only told the evil King that they would lose in battle with the Syrians, he explains how he supernaturally received the prophecy:
And [Micaiah the godly prophet] said, I saw all Israel scattered upon the hills, as sheep that have not a shepherd: and the LORD said, These have no master: let them return every man to his house in peace. [indicating that the battle would be a failure resulting in the death of its leader]. And the [king Ahab] said unto Jehoshaphat, Did I not tell thee that he would prophesy no good concerning me, but evil? And he [the prophet Michaiah] said, Hear thou therefore the word of the LORD: I saw the LORD sitting on his throne, and all the host of heaven standing by him on his right hand and on his left. And the LORD said, Who shall persuade Ahab, that he may go up and fall at Ramothgilead? And one said on this manner, and another said on that manner. And there came forth a spirit, and stood before the LORD, and said, I will persuade him. And the LORD said unto him, Wherewith? And he said, I will go forth, and I will be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets. And he said, Thou shalt persuade him, and prevail also: go forth, and do so. Now therefore, behold, the LORD hath put a lying spirit in the mouth of all these thy prophets, and the LORD hath spoken evil concerning thee. 1 Kings 22:17-23
In this passage, God, speaking to His angels, had determined that the wicked pagan King Ahab would fail in battle as part of his punishment and judgment for all of his sinful acts. After listening to suggestions from his Divine Council, a demon came forth and said that it would be a “lying spirit” in the mouths of the prophets of Ahab. Thus the prophesy from the occult prophets Ahab employed who said “you will be victorious in battle” were influenced by the demon who caused them to lie. Thus even without making their presence known, the Bible shows that demons can influence human beings to think and say certain things. All this points leads to 2 simple truths: 1) demons are not to be messed with. These spiritual beings have been living for millennia and are quite experienced. They serve Satan and can influence a person’s thoughts or even control them; and 2) They all are still obedient and completely subservient to God and the Son of God, Jesus Christ. Having Jesus Christ as your Savior. Being a born again believer, with the Holy Spirit indwelling you, provides protection from these spirits and the knowledge to avoid anything that in the occult, that could lead to contact with them. This is why the Bible says when you are a true Christian, “greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.” (1 John 4:4)
The Creation of an “Alter Ego”
Nicki Minaj made her Grammy performance a tribute to the spirit that is inside of her (as she describes it), Roman Zolanski. After the film clip of her being possessed, the stage show resumes with Minaj shackled to a wooden board, signifying that she has become so insane from the spirit in her she needed to be restrained (just like the man possessed by the demons called Legion in Mark chapter 5 above). And she sings the hook of the song:
Take your medication, Roman
Take a short vacation, Roman
You’ll be okay
You need to know your station, Roman
Some alterations on your clothes and your brain
Take a little break, little break
From your silencing
There is so much you can take, you can take
I know how bad you need a Roman holiday (Roman holiday)
The clear implication of the song is that the alter ego is insane. And as Minaj describes in her own interviews, that is precisely the case. What is interesting to note is that after taking over the hip hop world in 2009, certain critics and even members of her fan base were starting to allege that Minaj had gone too “commercial” and had lost the vulgar, angry and X-rated edge that made her such an instant success. Thus her new album, called “Roman Reloaded” was her effort to once again channel that spirit and thus achieve her monetary success. In discussing Roman’s “presence” on the album she said: “The new album is going to have a lot of Roman on it … And if you’re not familiar with Roman, then you will be familiar with him very soon. He’s the boy that lives inside of me. He’s a lunatic and he’s gay and he’ll be on there a lot.”
In Acts 16, the Apostle Paul encounters a young woman who “..a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying [telling the future]..” Once Paul cast the demon out of the young woman, her employers were furious because they were relying on the demonic inspiration to keep them making money. Minaj seems to be relying on the spirit of Roman for her own career boost. And that influence gives her the “freedom” to be as violent or vulgar as she wants to be. A depiction of her alter ego was on also on display during the video for “Monster” a song Minaj performed with Jay-Z, Kanye West and Rick Ross. The video, which depicts women hanging from nooses, necrophilia and torture, shows Minaj, in her Barbie alter ego, strapped in a chair, while her Roman Zolanski alter ego, baring fangs, prowls around her like an animal and raps “first off, I’ll eat your brain.” Again, Minaj states herself that these alter egos are being featured in the video.
And then Roman proceeds to try to kill Barbie.
Another Black Mass
The performance of the “Exorcism” then turns into what resembles a satanic ritual mass or “Black Mass.” We detailed the Black Mass in our article about Madonna’s 2012 Super Bowl Halftime performance (see, “Ye Shall Be As Gods: Madonna’s Super Bowl Satanic Occult Ritual“). The Black Mass is a magical ceremony and inversion or parody of the Catholic Mass that was indulged in ostensibly for the purpose of mocking God and worshiping the devil; a rite that was said to involve human sacrifice as well as obscenity and blasphemy of horrific proportions. The occult ceremony also involves vulgar sexuality. While Minaj’s performance was not replicating a Mass, it certainly mocked the church, Vatican, Catholic confessional and the use of an altar (the performance include scantily clad dancers, laying on the altar and straddling praying altar boys). Again, this is where demonic and evil spiritual influence can unwittingly guide an artist as this performance was disrespectful to God in the extreme.
The biggest blasphemy of the night was when the choir during the occult ritual mocked the Christian hymn “Oh Come, Oh Ye Faithful” and perverted the lyrics. The song, written about the birth of Jesus Christ, the prophesied and long awaited Messiah, on Earth, 2000 years ago in Bethlehem. It is one of the most revered and loved hymns in Christianity and is often sang during the Christmas season. The opening verse is written:
O Come All Ye Faithful
Joyful and triumphant,
O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem.
Come and behold Him,
Born the King of Angels;
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord.
The song is giving respect and honor to Jesus Christ and encouraging those who believe in Him (the “faithful”) to come and worship Him. The birth of Jesus Christ was the fulfillment of hundreds of Old Testament prophecies that a child would be born who would save humanity from damnation for our sins. In the Grammy Performance, the choir sang:
Oh Come All Ye Faithful,
Joyful and triumphant,
I am Roman Zolanski
This type of blasphemy is becoming more and more a part of pop culture as there are very few boundaries left when it comes to disrespecting Christianity, the Bible or Jesus Christ Himself (for more on this, see our article “Antichrist Generation: Tyler the Creator Leads Pop Music’s Open Blasphemy“). While the hymn is being sung, Minaj, attached to ropes, “levitates” high above the stage, again to give the signal used in many movies that she is demon possessed. And instead of speaking of the Messiah, Minaj inserted the name of her demonic alter ego, Roman Zolanski, into the song. This act is disrespectful to God and the Christian faith. The Bible says this about the name of Jesus:
Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (Philippians 2:5-11)
The name of Jesus, God in the flesh, who came to Earth to save humanity from its own sin by His wiling sacrifice, is above all names. Yet, Minaj removed his name to instead, exalt a demon at the “climax” of her show. This blasphemous imagery is just what Satan wants. As long as people are comfortable and even entertained by this mockery of the faith, they will either grow to doubt, disregard or despise God, the Bible and Christianity altogether. Thus the Satanic/demonic influence goes beyond the artist and to their willing and adoring fans.
Who is Roman Zolanski?
Roman Zolanski’s name is a very thinly-veiled reference to Roman Polanski, the director of the very famous horror film, “Rosemary’s Baby”. In the movie, a young woman is manipulated by her own husband and a satanic cult to enter into a ritual to father the Antichrist. Anton LaVey, the founder of the Church of Satan and a friend of Polanski’s, was hired by to serve as technical director in the film, thus the rituals, symbols and incantations in the movie are based on actual satanic practices. The film also happened to be shot in the Dakota Building in New York City. This is the same building where a short time later, John Lennon of the Beatles would be shot by Mark David Chapman. Both men have been alleged to have connections to Satanic cults themselves and Lennon is on record reciting his belief in the principles of satanist Aleister Crowley (Lennon was also a friend of Polanski’s).
Shortly after the release of Rosemary’s Baby, Polanski’s wife, Sharon Tate, died in a satanic rituals at the hands of serial killer and Satanist Charles Manson (who Springmeier states was an Operation Monarch mind control slave himself). Seven years after Tate’s murder, Polasnki was arrested and charged with a number of offenses against 13-year-old Samantha Geimer, including rape by use of drugs, perversion, sodomy, lewd and lascivious act upon a child under 14, and furnishing a controlled substance to a minor (he fled the US and has lived in exile since). He also directed a movie called “The Ninth Gate” starring Johnny Depp, about a book dealer who becomes obsessed with an occult ritual book said to be authored by Satan himself. And this is who Minaj names her alter ego after, by her own words. The satanic connections are not to be underestimated as we know from the Bible that spirits can guide the minds of their victims. For a Christian to be listening or supporting this type of music is unthinkable. The Bible says to ” have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove [expose] them.” The Grammy performance was a very major work of darkness. Do not be deceived.
The Lady Gaga Connection
For all of Nicki Minaj’s supposed eccentricity and outrageous fashion, many have said that she is a more hip hop, African American version of Lady Gaga. Lady Gaga, in addition to heavily promoting occult and satanic imagery in her videos and performances, also promotes symbolism of Monarch Program mind control.
And here is a video short Gaga did for a concert series called “The Brain.” It is basically a tribute to programmed mind control.
Notice that like Minaj, Gaga is completely disconnected and in a trance-like state. Her handler, standing behind her, asks her about her brain which she says in “his stomach” and references someone eating her brain (similar to Minaj’s line in the song Monster). This film is again clearly depicting the singer as being a victim of mind control. In addition, in several of Gaga’s videos, for songs such as Paparazzi and Telephone, Gaga is depicted as a mind-controlled assassin (whom Springmeier refers to as a “Delta mind control slave”), who murders her boyfriend and others.
We have chronicled the Satanic and blasphemous messages and symbols of Lady Gaga in our article about the video “Judas” (see “Lady Gaga’s Judas” Spreading the Occult Gospel“), in which we detailed how the song and video are extremely blasphemous and anti-Christian. Evil spiritual influence is all over the performances and lyrics of Gaga. So the “inspiration” for both artists leads back to attacking The Lord and the Bible through their “art.” Interestingly, the director of the ‘Judas’ video, LaurieAnn Gibson, was also the choreographer and director for Minaj’s Grammy performance.
Beyonce and Sasha Fierce
Sasha Fierce is the fun, more sensual, more aggressive, more outspoken side and more glamorous side that comes out when I’m working and when I’m on the stage.” Beyonce, Press Statement, October 2008
“I’ve created an alter ego: things I do when performing I would never do normally. I reveal things about myself that I wouldn’t do in an interview. I have out-of-body experiences [on stage]. If I cut my leg, if I fall, I don’t even feel it. I’m so fearless, I’m not aware of my face or my body.” Beyonce, Marie Claire interview, October 2008
Just as Minaj speaks in very glowing and literal terms about her alter egos, just a few years earlier, mega-star Beyoncé did the same thing with her alter ego, Sasha Fierce. Just like Minaj, Beyonce dedicated an album to her alter ego to let the world get to know “Sasha.” It was called “I Am….Sasha Fierce.” Here is Beyonce discussing her alter ego.
Notice the eerie similarity in description of this spirit by Beyonce compared to Nikki Minaj’s Roman. And for those who are still not convinced that this is a spiritual encounter taking place, here again is Beyonce speaking of Sasha in her own words:
Not being in control of herself. Invoking a spirit and receiving it. Being so possessed and out of her mind that physical pain is not even felt. The characteristics of demon possession/mind control are clearly apparent. And just as Springmeier and occultists state, there is always sexuality involved. Beyonce has become renowned for her skimpy revealing outfits, often wearing bikini bottoms on stage, spreading her legs repeatedly during performances and over the top sexual gyrations and gestures in her videos. This in itself is satanic as it is promoting promiscuous behavior and enticing lust in those watching. And her depictions of Sasha Fierce are also demonic.
Here is Beyonce’s Album cover, which on one side shows the “good girl” Beyonce.
And then the other side of the album jacket shows Sasha Fierce.
Notice the hands forming horns on her head. The symbolism is that the spirit that is Sasha Fierce is evil. And by her own admission, the spirit is X-rated, rebellious and wild. Beyonce at one point said that if she saw Sasha Fierce she “would not like her.” Below is yet another image of Sasha Fierce:
And here is the Baphomet symbol on full display. We described the Baphomet symbol in our article on Jay-Z (who happens to be Beyonce’s husband) and Kanye West, and their use of the symbol on the cover of their “Watch The Throne” album. Here is Anton LaVey’s description of the symbol of the ‘Baphomet.’
“The symbol of Baphomet was used by the Knights Templar to represent Satan. Through the ages this symbol has been called by many different names. Among these are: The Goat of Mendes, The Goat of a Thousand Young, The Black Goat, The Judas Goat, and perhaps the most appropriately, The Scapegoat.
Baphomet represents the Powers of Darkness combined with the generative fertility of the goat. In its “pure” form the pentagram is shown encompassing the figure of a man in the five points of the star – three points up, two pointing down – symbolizing man’s spiritual nature. In Satanism the pentagram is also used, but since Satanism represents the carnal instincts of man, or the opposite of spiritual nature, the pentagram is inverted to perfectly accommodate the head of the goat – its horns, representing duality, thrust upwards in defiance; the other three points inverted, or the trinity denied.
And this is what Beyonce chose to represent Sasha Fierce. As the Bible describes, spirits can continue to influence their victims even without the person knowing. And Beyonce seems to have strong influence from Sasha Fierce.
Even Rolling Stone Magazine described Beyonce’s description of her alter ego in spiritual terms:
Springmeier writes that Disney movies have been used in mind-control programming (ibid. p. 153). In Lady Gaga’s video for her song Paparazzi, Gaga, looking like she is a trance, poisons her boyfriend and kills him while dressed in a Mickey Mouse outfit during the murder scene:
The good news in all of this is that this is the type of spiritual bondage is what Jesus Christ can free a person from. Make no mistakes, Satan will not empower his victims forever. There is always a cost with the fame and wealth that artists amass. And that does not mean just suffering harm or death. It means going to hell. Spending eternity in damnation is what Satan wants for every human being because that is where he is going. Jesus said that Hell was originally created for “the Devil and his angels”. Satan’s fate has already been sealed and now that humans have been created with a chance to know God, love Him and have eternal life, the Devil will do whatever he can do to undermine God’s desires. Jesus said the that Satan comes to “steal, kill and destroy.” The Apostle Paul wrote: “But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.” (2 Corinthians 11:3).
Satan will use any mean necessary to corrupt people and remove them from the Gospel of Jesus Christ. And music, fame and money are tried and true methods that seduced millions away from the simple truth and into destruction and hell. What can just seem like “music” is bringing spiritual forces into the mind and home of the listener. And this is evident as what would have been so offensive just ten years ago, is not completely acceptable on TV or on Super Bowl or Grammy performances. Society has been conditioned by entertainers to accept more and more lewd, promiscuous and amoral behavior. Women and girls are being socialized to hate each other, gossip and wear the title of “Bi–h” as a badge of honor. Men are conditioned to objectify and demean women along with idolizing criminals, gansgters and people who act as idiotic and disrespectful as possible (see “The Jersey Shore”). And everyone is focused on promotion of self – whether it is making records that boast of luxury cars and mansions, or posting pictures and bragging on Facebook. The Bible prophesied that this would be the state of the world as the end times approached:
This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. (2 Timothy 3:1-7).
Today, society is “ever learning” nothing but corruption. Performers like Minaj, Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Eminem and Tyler the Creator constantly promote wickedness, rebellion and all sorts of spiritual darkness. And they have legions of fans who worship and defend them, just for the chance to pay more money to makes these stars even wealthier. Those who want to take a stand for morality and goodness are seen as bigots, judgmental and “haters.” One wonders where are church leaders on these issues? Why are the televangelists not speaking out on this satanic wave entering pop culture and into the homes of families across the globe? Instead churches are acquiescing to sin. the promotion of demons and letting all of this slide by. Some churches are even dancing to this music (as mega-church Granger Community Church does shamefully in this video). All this makes it more imperative to not be silent on these issues. This article is not being written to condemn these artists. It is to serve as a warning to listeners and parents of the spiritual implications and messages being put into music today and point to the solution: Jesus Christ.
On the heels of Madonna’s Super Bowl occult ritual, Nikki Minaj’s Grammy performance brought the devil’s agenda of demonic possession and disrespect of God to the national stage once more. Despite the argument that this is “just music” a look deeper reveals that demon possession is very real as well as the history of mind-control programming. And in all of this we see an evil spiritual nature. The fact that these celebrities can openly discuss “alter egos” as if they are real beings living inside of them is disturbing and proof that there is something spiritual taking place. As we have stated in past articles, the entertainment industry is “ramping up” and what was once subtle symbolism is now turning into outright blasphemy against God and open satanic displays. If you are a Christian, remember Jesus’ words:
“Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?” (Matthew 16:24-26)
Many people today are willingly giving up their souls in exchange for money, power and “the fame.” It is in separating from the sinful world and not supporting it, that God is glorified in you. Are you willing to truly follow Jesus, or do your own personal desires for fun and social acceptance take priority? And for those who are not Christian, remember that Jesus is the answer to escape demons, Satan and the evil of this world. Jesus Christ said “ I am come that [humanity] might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10). There is an eternal life waiting for all of us. Jesus came to make things right and provide a way for all people to live on Earth when He is in control of it (at His Second Coming), ruling the world in true peace and harmony. But it takes faith in Him and acknowledging the sin that separates us from God in the first place.
Just knowing the truth behind the songs and performances will not matter if you are in the same spiritual boat as Nikki Minaj. What matters is the ultimate truth: that all people are sinners and start off no different. The Bible says that Satan’s spiritual influence “now worketh in the children of disobedience.” That means any unbelievers have evil spiritual influence in them because of our sins. Because of our sin we are all trapped in bondage to spirits. And there is no hope for humanity to restore itself. This is why God sent Jesus to Earth. Not to possess people. Not to manipulate. But to offer Himself as a sacrifice and take the punishment for humanity, so we can have a chance to escape God’s wrath and return to God’s good graces and family. But The Lord does not possess people. He offers choice. And it just takes a decision to believe in Jesus Christ, the one who demons bow down to, in order to have forgiveness of sins and eternal life. Instead of having your mind controlled, Jesus Christ gives the His peace and freedom from sin and the devil to live for love and righteousness.
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified [made innocent in God’s eyes] by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. (Romans 5:8-10).
