In one of the eeriest concerts to date, a holographic image of deceased rapper Tupac Shakur was used to perform at the 2012 Coachella Music Festival for a “cameo” appearance with Snoop Dog who is one of the richest rappers in the industry, and Dr. Dre (video of the performance is below). The very life-like hologram (which was a strange foreshadow of the Bible’s Image of the Beast) initially scared and stunned the confused concert attendees who had no idea the hologram was going to be used.
The Tupac hologram spoke to the crowd in Tupac’s voice, even yelling “Coachella!” It danced, paced the stage and performed two songs before disappearing like a ghost and vanishing. While it was on stage, concertgoers soon started cheering wildly for the holographic performance. Celebrities in attendance and those who heard about it, from Rihanna to LeBron James, took to Twitter to express their shock at the performance:

I think I might have cried when I saw Tupac. #coachella

The Tupac hologram opened the performance with the song Hail Mary. The song (whose title was a reference to the unbiblical Roman Catholic practice of worshiping Mary, the mother of Jesus Christ) was edited to remove the following lines:
Makaveli in this… Killuminati, all through your body
The blow’s like a twelve gauge shotty
Uh, feel me!
Shortly before his death, Tupac changed his stage name to “Makaveli.” He also went by the nickname “the Don Killuminati”, a reference to his opposition to the Illuminati order. However for the hologram performance, these lines were mysteriously missing from the song. Instead it jumped to these lines:
And God said he should send his one begotten son
to lead the wild into the ways of the man
Follow me; eat my flesh, flesh and my flesh
Once again, an artist goes to the Bible for inspirations and blasphemes the Word of God. God’s only begotten son is Jesus Christ. John 3:16 says: For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. This is the foundation of Christianity. All people have sinned and God sent His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to take the punishment for our sin so that those who choose to believe in Jesus can have free forgiveness and eternal life. That is the Gospel message and the purpose of the entire ministry and preaching of Jesus Christ on Earth. Yet Tupac twists the scripture to say God sent his son (presumably Tupac is referring to himself) to “lead the wild into the ways of the man” thus perverting the Bible for his own purposes. He then says “follow me” and “eat my flesh”, both phrases said by Jesus in the Gospel account of the Bible. Jesus implored His disciples and others to follow Him so that they could have eternal life. And He described Himself as the “bread of life” exhorting listeners to “eat his flesh” which was symbolic of believing in Him and the sacrifice He made on the cross, where His flesh was beaten, battered and killed so that He could take the punishment mankind deserved. Yet Pac uses these lines for himself. This is disrespectful to Jesus Christ and follows a pattern of artists who take the titles and words of God right out of the Bible and apply it to themselves (which we cover in detail in an article here). To show further support of Pac elevating himself to the level of Jesus, here is the album cover for his final album:
Foreshadow of the Image of the Beast?
Many of the initial comments about the show from fans were that they would “definitely pay to see Pac in concert!” and the suggestion to “bring back Biggie [deceased rapper Biggie Smalls] and Michael Jackson!” This resurrection hologram technology was also a strange foreshadow of the “Image of the Beast” prophesied in the Book of Revelation. The Bible prophesies that the Antichrist, the satanically empowered false Messiah who will rule over a global government in the end times, will at some point, suffer a fatal wound and come back from death. The world will be caught up in his supernatural miracles and deceptions and his apparent return from the grave will be the key moment in gaining the world’s support to be the executive of a global government.
And it is at that point that the Antichrist will reveal his true intention: to be worshiped as a god. The Image of the Beast, an image of some sort that resembles the Antichrist, will be set up and through satanic occult power, it will be given “life”, be able to speak and demand worship from the people on the Earth (under penalty of death). The False Prophet, the spiritual partner of the Antichrist, is the facilitator of the Image of the Beast:
And [the False Prophet] deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. (Revelation 13:14-15)
Thus the Bible was making a very specific prophecy that would require very advanced technology to achieve. Holographic technology has great potential for deception. While this technology for the concert is not the Image of the Beast, it is showing that the capabilities to amaze the masses on the scale the Bible describes is now capable and in use. For years Truth Movement researchers wrote about Project Bluebeam or technologies like HAARP for projects that contemplated projecting a hologram of an alien invasion or a false “Second Coming of the Messiah” in the sky which could be seen by millions of people. The Cutting Edge Ministries website chronicled possible use of this technology by the Illuminati New World Order:
New World Order planners can possibly “take over the world by projecting holographic images into the sky while beaming thoughts directly into our heads, telling us to accept the new ‘god’ of their design.” [“HAARP: The Ultimate Weapon Of The Conspiracy”, by Jerry E. Smith, p. 15; New Age adherent]
“I have learned that the [New Age] Movement has devoted a great deal of research and attention to the use of holographic images. These are three-dimensional images created in space by use of laser beams. David Spangler said in a meeting in Southfield, Michigan, February 1, 1982, that laser beam projectors had been installed for use on top of the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, Episcopal, in New York City.
“I talked to lighting experts to see what laser beam projectors are capable of and I was told they can be beamed onto telecommunications satellites. The New Agers have several of these at their disposal. When the lasers bounce from the satellite back to earth, the light rays can be bent in such a manner as to appear that flames are coming from the sky. These satellites can also be used to project a three-dimensional holographic image viewable by up to one-third of the earth’s population. There is even technology to make the image speak in the language of the areas to which it is beamed.” [“Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow”, pg. 24, published in 1983] (source)
Once again we see technology being used which can potentially fulfill Bible prophecy written 2,000 years ago. We do not know how this technology will be used in the future but judging from the reaction of its use at the Coachella concert, people can definitely be moved and swayed by it. Do not be deceived.
