Beyonce and Spiritual Warfare

Posted on

Beyonce-42

Believe it or not, many women who consider themselves ‘Christians’ also would describe themselves as fans of Beyoncé’. (I know because I have spoken to many) Hard to believe right? Well even more difficult to believe is the fact that many churches do not teach about the Holy Spirit or Spiritual Warfare. Why would I mention Beyoncé and Spiritual Warfare in the same comment?? Because the existence of the former continues to remind me of the NEED and existence of the latter. If you are listening to, watching, or are permitting your sons and daughters to listen to and watch this self-professed demon possessed woman, wake up and remove this and any other satanically influenced idols (as if there were any other kind of idol) from your homes and your circle of influence!!!!

What Has Happened to the Heart of a Mother?

What has taken place in the heart of a woman that we not only fail to protect our children in the womb, but we are failing or refusing to protect them after they are born???  Oh, we don’t want them to fall and scrape their knee, but a scraped knee very rarely if ever led a child into occultic activities or depression and suicide!! We no longer guard them from the music. We no longer guard them from the images or from the language. Witches and sorcery have become harmless entertainment!!! Our babies are murdered by us daily to the tune of over 3,000 every day!! What has happened in our hearts that we no longer fight for our children lives…for their souls?? What has happened that we no longer fight for our own!!!!!! How has it become the norm for a mother or a father to watch their children become statistics…empty vessels sitting in pews (or chairs) while chasing the idols of this world in their hearts? We dress our daughters in the likeness of the immodest, ungodly women of the secular culture, and our sons don’t appear much better, following the example of those wearing sagging pants and sloppy shirts with tattoos and body piercings all over their bodies.  We have become OK with coed church youth group swimming parties with our daughters in bikinis wrestling in water, and on land, with boys in underwear!!!!! We allow them to ‘lead their own lives’!! They have ipods full of ungodly music, and Facebook pages that we know nothing about the content of because we want them to know that we trust them!! ARE WE SERIOUS????? I trust my kids, but it is this EVIL, SATANICALLY INFLUENCED CULTURE THAT I DO NOT TRUST!!! And I am their MOTHER!!! And it is the responsibility of my husband and I to protect them, even if it’s against themselves.

My, How The Church Has Changed!

There was a time when the ‘town sinner’ would come to church and understand and demonstrate respect for the House of the Lord. If the men had a hat on, they took it off. If the skirts of the ladies were too short, they would feel shame, and the older women would gracefully put a hankee or a sheet over their laps. Any profane communication was on hold until they exited the doors. It was understood that God was gracious, merciful, jealous and just! But today, the level of disrespect displayed by those who wear the Lord’s name while in His House has caused those who would have once been convicted of sin, and repented with broken spirits, to now believe that they are ‘fine’ just the way they are. No change is needed. My miniskirt, low-cut blouse, tight leggings while leading praise and worship, marijuana smell, profane language, lustful thoughts and actions are all OK with God. My blatant disrespect of my husband and refusal to discipline (provide boundaries for) my children no longer disqualifies me from serving tirelessly in the church. The miniscule detail that I am on marriage number three no longer disqualifies me from the pulpit. After all, I liked it so I put a ring on that one…and that one…oh, and that one too! God accepts me just the way I am, and there is nothing I need to do or that I can do to earn salvation, and there is nothing I need to do or can do to keep it.  Bottom line; Our faulty theology and misrepresentation of grace has bred a generation that occupies God’s house but does not know God at all…and that’s just the adults, while the children take notes…

And a great road will go through that once deserted land.

    It will be named the Highway of Holiness.
Evil-minded people will never travel on it.
It will be only for those who walk in God’s ways;
fools will never walk there.

Isaiah 35:8

BUT WHAT DOES THIS ALL HAVE TO DO WITH BEYONCE????

Beyoncé and her large Christian fan base represents a trend in the modern church to be in the world and of it! This trend has amassed an egregiously ungodly influence not just in the world, BUT IN THE LIVES OF THOSE SITTING IN OUR CHURCHES AND SERVING IN OUR MINISTRIES…. As a wife, it grieves me mightily that so many husbands are engaged in lustful thinking whenever her name comes up, and the images of her videos or her Superbowl performance flash across their mind…but not just her. It grieves me that so many are engaged in lust AT ALL!!!

As a mother, one of my responsiblities is to protect my children from things that would turn their hearts from the Lord and from following his ways!! Beyoncé is not alone in this example of evil influence, but she is one of the most recognized and widely worshipped singers of today. And one of the most dangerous! You see, Beyonce goes to church on Sunday!!! The lie that she walks in fellowship with God is told by her actions, while the truth of her demonic possession is told from her own mouth. As such, she influences countless young girls that her lifestyle is acceptable to the Lord…and they will influence their daughters and granddaughters with this Beyoncé’ (pagan) worship.

~~~~~

And what union can there be between God’s temple and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God said:

“I will live in them and walk among them. I will be their God, and they will be my people. Therefore, come out from among unbelievers, and separate yourselves from them, says the Lord. Don’t touch their filthy things, and I will welcome you. And I will be your Father,and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.” 2 Corinthians 6:16-18

~~~~~

Our children need to understand that idolatry has consequences. But now that I say that I am remembering that it is not the kids alone who need to realize this fact! Its moms and dads too.  I remember a few years ago when I was teaching a group of a few hundred girls monthly. The lessons were original ones that the Lord blessed me to write called “Purity Points’, and as you can guess by the title, the topic was PURITY…separation from the love of the world.  The young girls would come back each month and tell me that they tried to implement the boundary setting exercises we talked about in the previous months lessons, only to have their mom tell them they didn’t need to follow that! These girls tried hard to honor the Lord in their daily living, but were discouraged from doing so, many of them, by their Christian parents.  They were crushed at the advice of their mothers, and while many attempted to stay the course, most of them sadly did not! Did you notice that I said mothers, and not moms and dads? You see, most fathers want their daughters to remain pure and undefiled sexually.  It’s usually the moms that don’t see a problem with a little ‘sex appeal’! It’s usually the moms that intervene when dad is concerned that daughters pants are too tight, or clothes are too revealing, and tells him that she’s young, and that there is nothing wrong with showing a little skin!!

AAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!

WHAT. IS. WRONG. WITH. US????? IF. WE. DON’T. GET. IN. THIS. FIGHT. AND. IN. HIS. WORD. AND. ON. THE. FRONT. LINE. AND. ON. THE. RIGHT. SIDE. OF . THIS. BLOOD. RED. BATTLE. LINE. IN. THE. SAND. OUR. CHILDREN. WILL. DIE. IN . THIS. WILDERNESS.!!!!!! …………………………………………………. And it will be our fault….:-(

“If the world hates you, remember that it hated me first. The world would love you as one of its own if you belonged to it, but you are no longer part of the world. I chose you to come out of the world, so it hates you. John 15:18

A Hospital For Sinners

~~~

When the church became a ‘hospital for sinners’ it ceased to be a place of refuge, discipleship (meaning training in righteous living and in how to defend THE faith) and fellowship for the Saints. There was a time when sinners would not, could not sit in the church and be comfortable in their sin, but now we cater to the unrepentant sinner and provide false security in return for a prayer uttered from an unrepentant heart, while labeling those who genuinely love God, have repented (meaning TURNED FROM A LIFESTYLE OF SIN) and are pursuing righteous living with all of their heart, with the Holy Spirit empowering them, as legalists… But that is not what God’s Word says about us!!!

“How much more do I need to say? … They shut the mouths of lions, quenched the flames of fire, and escaped death by the edge of the sword. Their weakness was turned to strength. They became strong in battle and put whole armies to flight. Women received their loved ones back again from death. But others were tortured, refusing to turn from God in order to be set free. They placed their hope in a better life after the resurrection. Some were jeered at, and their backs were cut open with whips. Others were chained in prisons. Some died by stoning, some were sawed in half, and others were killed with the sword. Some went about wearing skins of sheep and goats, destitute and oppressed and mistreated. They were too good for this world, wandering over deserts and mountains, hiding in caves and holes in the ground. All these people earned a good reputation because of their faith, yet none of them received all that God had promised. For God had something better in mind for us, so that they would not reach perfection without us.” Hebrews 11:32-40

But we don’t fight to hang on to this identity anymore!!! We quietly slip away into silence while the enemy rages against the Kingdom of the Living God!!! But we are more than this…and so are our children!! And if we do not fight for them who will!!!???  Ladies, we are at war, and the future of our children is what’s on the line. Will we fight for them? In prayer, will we fight? On our knees, will we fight? With tears streaming down our faces, will we withstand the pull to give in and let them be in the world and of the world.  How much do they really mean to us? Are we willing to suffer through their  anger and sullen faces if need be? ARE WE WILLING TO FIGHT FOR THE SOULS OF OUR CHILDREN???? Or does the spirit of Beyoncé win?

~~~~~

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us.” Hebrews 12:1

~~~~~

Not only is Beyoncé evil, but all sin is evil. She is a representation of the sin that Christ came and died to free us from. If we love Him, and we love our children, we need to guard them from the influence of this woman and any other influence that denies the light of Christ!

~~~~~

1 Peter 5:8 issues this very appropriate warning; “Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil.

He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.”

    Wow. Girl, just wow. Thank you for the timely and appropriately passionate warning. If I can add that the life surrendered to God might look to others (who haven’t experienced it themselves) like legalism, but it is full of joy and hope. The more I come closer to my Lord, reading the Bible and letting it teach me how to live, the more laughing and singing that come out of my mouth! Sure, there are people who are all about rules, but that’s not holy living. Holy living feels free and powerful and wonderful.

      Yes it does!!!! The joy comes from a heart that is now experiencing the freedom that only Christ can give!!! A heart that KNOWS what slavery to sin feels like and what it costs and rejoices in the sacrifice and the power of the resurrection. :D You made a great point…the more you read the Bible… We can never learn to live a Christ honoring life without that very important factor.

    Amen! I am in total agreement with you.
    I am trying to teach my children all these things. It’s hard in this ever increasingly evil world, but I just keep praying that the Lord will keep us all on His narrow path.

      That is our prayer as well! And we believe that God will do just that because our hearts are for Him. Our faith is in Him and we demonstrate that faith by how we choose to live. We will never raise Christ honoring children or live Christ honoring lives on accident. Choose daily to disciple your kids…you will grow right along with them :-)

        Hmm, I thought I replied to you ages ago, but I must have mucked it up somehow. :/

        I have started homeschooling this year and the curriculum we used is Christian based, so that helps. I also try to lead by example as much as I can. I don’t always, because I’m still learning myself, but I try. :)

    I want to thank Our Lord for hearing my cry for help. I was beginning to think that I was the only mom that believes that our children are God’s and we are to protect and train them in All righteousness. I recently took my girls out of a Christian pre-school because God called me to. He has told me to teach my girls what they need to learn and to put Him at the center of every lesson. He said “All things were made by Him and for Him.” I even have a call to create a school of worship in dance, art and music with the emphasis of hearing God’s voice and using our spiritual gifts.
    I recently went to a Christian home-school co-op in hopes that the girls could learn music and take gym class in a Christ centered environment. I was disappointed to say the least. I began a conversation with some moms about homeschooling and asked some questions for some guidance. They were so wrapped up in passing tests and college prep. I told them that although I want my girls to do well in school it wasn’t as important as their spirituality and their walk with God. I was quickly and rudely dismissed.
    I live in the Northeastern part of Pennsylvania and it is very difficult to find true followers of Christ both inside and outside of the church walls.
    But I must do as God has commanded and train and equip my children to be warriors for Christ. When they are equipped to deal with this wicked world I will send them out to fight the good fight.
    Thank you for helping me see and being a confirmation that I am walking on the true and right path.

      Psalm 127:3-5
      3 Children are a gift from the Lord;
      they are a reward from him.
      4 Children born to a young man
      are like arrows in a warrior’s hands.
      5 How joyful is the man whose quiver is full of them!
      He will not be put to shame when he confronts his accusers at the city gates.

      I am praising God that He provides the support and encouragement that we need when we need it! He IS FAITHFUL!!! I have witnessed and experienced many of the same things that you describe in your comment, and I simply want to commend you for not giving in to the attack of our enemy. He wants nothing more than for us to quit…on our marriages, on our children, on our Lord!!! As somewhat of a homeschool veteran (10 years), I have found very little support, but am seeing an enormous amount of fruit in the lives of my children. I will pray for you, and would like to make myself available to connect! Email me @ Joyfullysubmitted@yahoo.com to simply say hi, ask questions or share some concerns you may be having. This is not an easy road…everything in our lives has prepared us to do the exact opposite of what the Lord commands and desires…actually raising our children to fear, honor and love the Lord is foreign…we were taught to let the state do it…

      THE EDUCATION OF ALL CHILDREN FROM THE MOMENT THAT THEY CAN GET ALONG WITHOUT A MOTHERS CARE, SHALL BE AT STATE INSTITUTIONS AT STATE EXPENSE.” Carl Marx, The Communist Manifesto

      Many Christians still only view homeschooling as one of many options on the educational front, as opposed to the ONLY option! Many of our wars would have quickly ended if we had been prepared for battle before enlisting…

      “Children born to a young man are like arrows in a warrior’s hands.” Even arrows are crafted and sharpened BEFORE being used… You are doing what God has called you to do!!! Be encouraged!!! <3
