The Real State of The Union

If you watched the Grammys Sunday night you witnessed something very significant. No, I am not referring to the homosexual marital union.

I am talking about a message given through Katy Perry’s song Dark Horse.

Katy Perry, accompanied by rapper Juicy J, formerly of Three 6 Mafia (666), gave America a hidden but clear message.

I will go into the symbolism of the Knights Templar cross she was wearing later but first I want to show you the lyrics of the song Dark Horse, in particular a few lines.

Lyrics from Dark Horse

So you wanna play with magic
Boy, you should know what you’re falling for
Baby do you dare to do this?
Cause I’m coming at you like a dark horse
Are you ready for, ready for
A perfect storm, perfect storm
Cause once you’re mine, once you’re mine
There’s no going back

Dark Horse is one of many singles off the Prism album, an album Katy said was inspired by Eckhart Tolle’s book The Power of Now. His mantra “Creating a New Earth Together” will come into play later in this article.

I skip the Grammys (along with all other award shows) because I really don’t care about it. But after hearing about Katy Perry’s performance I had to do further research. Katy has songs that indirectly reference Satan so I was not surprised to find the use of occult symbols. The performance was a theatrical Satanic ritual.

What stood out to me though was the black horse or “Dark Horse” used in the performance. It stood out because I have been reading about Joseph in the Bible. In particular the 7 year famine.

Immediately God placed Revelation 6 on my mind.

This famine is mentioned in the Bible in Revelation Chapter 6:5-6 as the 3rd of 7 Seals. The Seal Judgements commence in the first half of the 7 year Tribulation. The Black Horse (or Dark Horse) is the 3rd of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. The ‘perfect storm’? A worldwide famine that causes change to the global government structure.

Interpretations suggest significant inflation and scarcity of commodities, mentioned in the passage as grain, or basic food items. During this severe famine a quart of wheat and 3 quarts of barley will cost a full days wage. It mentions not damaging the “oil and the wine” which has been interpreted to suggest luxuries for the rich will remain untouched. Or, that an elite top class will oppress the masses.

The cross in Katy Perry’s performance was a Knights Templar cross which since the 18th century has been incorporated by Freemasonry. This society has functioned behind the scenes and has produced many powerful men and elites in society. Society calls them the ‘Illuminati’. What was once hidden and considered a conspiracy theory is now being brought to light through the likes of Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, Jay-Z, Beyonce and others.

This is not conspiracy theory. Since the beginning of time, in every kingdom, Satan has been giving power, wealth and fame in exchange for worship and a person’s soul. He even tried to offer it to Jesus in Matthew 4:8-9.

Luciferian worship is growing in America. Our movies, entertainment, and television shows are not just bringing us into the dark realms but they are invoking and manifesting the presence of demons.

As usual most Christians missed the significance of the message and moved on to the culture war of homosexuality. But the homosexual marital union was a smokescreen. Homosexuality like every sin is just a symptom of the greater problem. There is a serious spiritual shift happening in America that is greater than any culture war.

Our Church services are rocking out, so why is America falling away so quickly?

It is because we are quenching the Spirit.

Where the Holy Spirit is quenched, darkness reigns.

When you bring these things up Christians scoff and mock or they declare that “Jesus is Lord!” and “God is still on the throne!”. Yes, Jesus is Lord and God is still on the throne. That is not the point.

Rather there are 3 things you need to realize:

  1. Darkness is advancing in America. It is moving beyond secularism towards paganism and the Satanic occult is emerging.
  2. Rather than binding up darkness the Church is focusing on sin symptoms, culture war, methodology and theology. We have lost our power by worshiping men which quenches the Holy Spirit.
  3. Signs are emerging that God’s will is being fulfilled in our generation towards His second coming.

Christian singer Natalie Grant was reported to have left the Grammys early. It is no coincidence that God has placed her at the tip of the spear for this event given the name and meaning of her hit song “Your Great Name”. She stewards a more powerful message than Katy Perry. Grant’s song speaks to the power of the name of Jesus and what power it holds over darkness.

In the Bible it says…

“Truly I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall have been bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall have been loosed in heaven.” Matthew 18:18

Why? Because…

“And if I am empowered by Satan, what about your own exorcists? They cast out demons, too, so they will condemn you for what you have said. But if I am casting out demons by the Spirit of God, then the Kingdom of God has arrived among you. For who is powerful enough to enter the house of a strong man like Satan and plunder his goods? Only someone even stronger—someone who could tie him up and then plunder his house.” Matthew 12:27-29

In Matthew 12 and 18 Jesus shows us that He alone has the power we need. But if we trust Him, if we call on Him, He can remove darkness and evil from our hearts and our land.

The call to action is the removal of idols from our hearts.

For the Church to worship Jesus alone. No more celebrity worship. No more idolizing speakers, pastors etc. It is quenching the Spirit. We need the Holy Spirit to move in our nation.

We must return to Christ with our entire hearts. We must be a city that will lead the nation by example. Where churches unite in prayer and worship for the general cause of the Gospel. Where ego is destroyed and humility takes its place. Where the Gospel is proclaimed without any shame or embarrassment.

So far as it is in His will, if we return to the Lord, He will heal our land.

Whenever you see the strength of Satan being glorified just remember…

Jesus is stronger.
