Not that Jesus was ever truly a part of the Grammy’s, anyways………remember the 2nd commandment that “thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image”.
But in general, it seems that the Grammy Awards are getting bolder and bolder each year. They keep getting more and more dark and Satanic. So what does that say about us, as a culture? And as a nation?
It simply means that more and more people are opening up their hearts, souls and minds to blatant Satanism. But Satanism isn’t easily recognized for what it really is, at first. It tries to make itself seem “good”, even “family-friendly” and “harmless white magic” at first glance. Take the ever-so-popular Harry Potter series, for example. It pretty much presents witchcraft as “harmless”, “cool”, even “FUN”! Or the movies The Craft and Practical Magic, for example.
I’m very embarrassed and ashamed to admit this but the movie The Craft actually got me curious about witchcraft when I was about 19 years old or so. And before I knew it, I had started to research more about Wiccan online, played with a ouji board once or twice and was actually thinking of becoming a certified Wiccan practitioner who practiced “harmless white magic” such as “innocent love spells” and the like. I thought there was no harm in it since I WASN’T going to be doing any “dark magic” to hurt people, only “white magic” to “heal” or “help people”.
In short, I was going to SUPPLEMENT “White Magic” with my Christian beliefs and still have my faith and belief in Jesus Christ but just have an extra added boast to my relationships through “White Magic” spells……….or so I THOUGHT……..But what made me FINALLY realize that ALL magic is SATANIC (EVEN White Magic) was this: a person was not considered GRADUATED from the Wiccan certification program until a person stripped down naked and walked down the steps in front of a building……..ON CAMERA…….Basically, they wanted a person to surrender their BODY and SOUL to become a Wiccan “practitioner”. And something about that just didn’t sit right by me. I IMMEDIATELY clicked off that website and NEVER LOOKED BACK AGAIN!
But see, that’s the SAD thing. People think that Ouji boards and the like are JUST A GAME! But I’m living proof that Ouji boards and the study of Wicca is NOT A GAME!!!!! For I had had some VERY bad spiritual experiences within the 19-21 years old time-frame, due to my dabbling in Ouji boards and study of “White Magic”. I had tried to kill myself 7 times within that time-frame. I became a binge-drinking alcoholic. I got kicked out of university. My boyfriend at the time left me for another woman. My bestfriend Sarah almost stopped being friends with me due to my crazy, erratic behavior. Basically, 19-21 was a VERY, VERY BAD time for me. I also had these BAD spiritual experiences in which a dark presence would hover over me when I went to sleep at night and also when I woke up every morning. One time, this dark presence HELD ME DOWN on the bed and would NOT let me get up out of bed!!!!
I had to pray in the name of Jesus Christ to make the dark presence (likely, the devil himself) go away!!!!!!! But basically, Jesus Christ explained it all to me in a dream. He said to me: “Dawn, when you dabbled with Ouji boards and ‘White Magic’, you actually invited demon spirits to come into your home and infect your mind with thoughts of severe depression/wanting to kill yourself/binge-drinking alcoholism/etc. But BECAUSE you decided to put away all Magic for good and THREW AWAY your Ouji board and REPENTED to me, the evil spirits have now gone and you’re safe now, in my great Heavenly name. But don’t EVER turn to magic or Ouji boards ever, ever again or the demon spirits will be 10 times worse than they were this time”.
But going back to the subject of the post…….when I see all these kids at libraries or the mall or bookstores ranting and raving about the Harry Potter book series or talking about how good the Harry Potter movies are, I just want to cry and cry and cry, until I can cry no more. Because these poor young children have NO IDEA of the “eternal condemnation” that they’re heading for, if they continue on the path of darkness. But that’s just what the problem is, in today’s world. Witchcraft in today’s popular culture is seen as “normal”, “acceptable”, “cool”, “harmless”, “fun”, and even “family-friendly” (as the end of the movie “Practical Magic” portrays). Therefore, these poor young children have NO IDEA that Harry Potter represents DARKNESS (and consequently, the Lord’s WRATH!) I just absolutely HATE the way in which the author of the Harry Potter series makes witchcraft seem so “cuddly” when it is anything BUT cuddly! It is SOUL DAMNING!!!!!!!!!!
When I was a young kid back in the 80s’, parents would’ve been UP IN ARMS if there was a popular book series about Witchcraft or if there was a pro-homosexual curriculum, if “one nation under God” was taken out of the pledge of Allegiance or if they knew of a young girls dance team (ages 6-10) where their dance coach made them dress AND dance like strippers on NATIONAL LIVE TV! It just makes me SO sad and depressed, sometimes. WHAT IS HAPPENING TO THIS COUNTRY?????????????? ;( WHAT IS HAPPENING TO TODAY’S CHILDREN??????????? Are they all going to grow up to be devil-worshiping, homosexual, murdering, sodomizing monsters? (The ones that are NOT raised in a true Christian home, that is?) It’s pretty scary to think about……
I’ve also noticed at Hastings around the year 2000 or so that 2-3 long aisle shelves used to be devoted to Christianity years ago and that the New Age section was only one small little shelf area. But NOW, in the year 2014, the New Age section of the bookstore part of Hastings has just EXPLODED with 2-3 long aisle shelves devoted to it, while only 1-2 half aisle shelves are devoted to Christianity. And the people in the store that passed by and saw me in the “Christian” section of the bookstore part of Hastings just looked at me, pointed, scoffed and SNICKERED (which is definitely a sign of the times!) I was the ONLY person in the “Christian” aisle. Several years ago, there used to be atleast 3-10 other people at one time in the Christian section, with next to NOBODY in the New Age section of the store. But now guess what? Now EVERYBODY and their grandmother wants to go to the NEW AGE section of the store and totally forsake the Christian section, it seems like. How sad. What is this world coming to? ;(
