IF YOU HAVEN’T ALREADY, PLEASE READ PART ONE HERE
Jesus said in Luke 10:18: And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.
After Lucifer busted his head on the earth, he lost all the splendor he had. He was no longer an archangel. He is now an imp. An imp is a subaltern or puny devil, according to the dictionary. As a result, he hates God and everything God made. His name was changed from Lucifer (which meant “Day Star or Brightness, the Star the precedes the Sun) to Satan (which means “adversary”). Satan in the dictionary means “the grand adversary of man; the devil or prince of darkness; the chief of the fallen angels.”
So Lucifer became Satan and those fallen angels became demons. Those demons still obey Satan. Unlike God, Satan can’t be everywhere at the same time, so he needs help.
Now let me ask you, since Luficer was in charge of the music in the Throne Room to announce God’s splendor and radiant glory, what do you think he still uses to influence the minds of youth today?
Oh sure, there are other ways he tricks unlearned people into serving him; but know this: music is what he specializes in. He is still trying to get the adoration and praise of people. Ever ask yourself WHY do rappers tell you to put your hands up? The rappers themselves don’t even know why they are asking you to do that. Satan is behind it trying to get you to praise him indirectly. Why do you think certain rappers are not in the hip hop clique? Some rappers are dogged for being soft. God says, KIND WORDS turn away wrath. Why is it necessary to be hard? Satan is behind it. Why is it that rappers who are praised today are ones who glorify conflict and death? Pac: dead. Biggie: dead. The bible says in Matthew 9:29b: According to your faith be it unto you. In other words, according to what you believe, it’ll happen to you. And you know these guys believed what they rapped about because they spoke it. The Bible says in Luke 9:45: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.
So be careful what music you listen to.
Pay attention to what the music is saying to you. Don’t just bob your head and not hear the words. Don’t just raise your hands and not know why.
Remember, Satan has no power so he has to make you destroy yourself.
