Money is the Root of All Evil: (Woes of Hollywood)

Look at any famous person today and you will likely see a lavish lifestyle. Nice houses (oftentimes, more than one), one or several nice cars, lavish clothes and jewelry, marble floors, cathedral ceilings, fancy chandeliers, etc.

But oftentimes, behind all the money, fortune and fame, there’s an inner sadness inside of them; a restless sadness that never seems to be satisfied. Cause the cliche really IS true: money does NOT buy happiness, but rather, it buys MISERY.

But many famous celebrities don’t know HOW to deal with that sadness that eats away at their soul night and day and so they oftentimes turn to sex, drugs, alcohol, social media, etc. to try to make themselves feel better. But instead of making them feel better, it oftentimes makes them feel even WORSE.

And it seems that no matter HOW hard they try to fill that huge hole in their life, NOTHING seems to fill it. They’re restless, caught in a trap of sin and greed by which they feel as though they can not break free.

Many people who are NOT famous wish they were famous. But they don’t realize what they’re actually asking FOR: they’re asking for a life of money, fame and MISERY. For while these rich celebrities might APPEAR to have it made, one step closer INTO the “matrix” of “celebrity” (in and of itself), paints a completely different picture, ENTIRELY.

Imagine if you had someone/a group of people telling you what to wear, what to say, how to act, whom to date, etc. And imagine you had to sign your name IN BLOOD with a contract with the devil, in order to get rich and famous. Would it be worth it?

“For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” – Mark 8:36

And then imagine what would happen if you later decided it WASN’T worth it and wanted to try to “get out” of the Luciferian system of “celebrity”? That is when the “Luciferian establishment” would decide you needed to be killed and taken out. There’s been a weird string of celebrities lately in the last few years or so dying in “fiery car crashes”,”cancer”, “drug OD’s”, “suicide”, etc. It makes me wonder if some of those celebrities were actually trying like HECK to get “OUT of the Luciferian system of celebrity”, sort’ve speak.

Also as well: the bible condemns gambling. Buying lottery tickets or being on a money game show is actually a form of gambling. And so when someone wins a MAJOR amount of money, what they’re REALLY winning is a whole lot of INNER MISERY. Jesus Christ had THIS to say about money:

“No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon” – Matthew 6:24

Money makes people do the most evilest of things! People kill for it……Investigation Discovery is CHALK-FULL of programs about people who kill people to get insurance money or the like. Men use money to buy hookers. People fraud people out of money to further their own financial gains. It makes people FULL OF GREED. The bible prophesied of a time near the end when Jesus said: “And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold” – Matthew 24:12 (Translation? Because sin will increase by leaps and bounds near/in the times of the End, many people shall be *full of greed* and the love of money/material things is pretty much at the ROOT of all greed, if you ask ME!)

But one thing is for sure: the love of money is the root of all evil and leads to DESTRUCTION. Look at how many famous people were DESTROYED by fame. You look at their before and after pictures and you see someone quite different from the person they used to be. The person before they were famous was actually humble-looking and human. A person AFTER they became famous is something ENTIRELY different. Look REALLY CLOSELY at their “after fame” pictures and you will see cold eyes, an arrogant look, etc. Their morals change, their values change, their reputation changes. Their focus becomes on MONEY and how to SPEND IT.

And this doesn’t just apply to celebrities, this can apply to non-celebs, as well. Take a look at someone BEFORE they inherit lots of money from a trust fund or late relative, for example. Then examine the person AFTER they inherit lots of money. Notice anything different? Chances are, if you’ve examined the person closely, you’ve likely seen a slight change in them and they seem like a different person “post money” than they did “pre money”, correct?

Another TEXTBOOK CASE of when “money destroys” is King Saul in the Old Testament. When he first started out after being anointed the “King of Israel” by the Prophet Samuel, he was humble, had a true heart for the Lord God, etc. But AFTER he was King of Israel for awhile, GREED began to set in and his LOVE OF MONEY grew by leaps and bounds and as a result, his love for the Lord God grew THINNER AND THINNER until it was almost non-existent! MONEY DESTROYS PEOPLE and King Saul was a PRIME EXAMPLE! [Note: You can read about the story of King Saul in 1 Samuel 9 (Old Testament, book of 1 Samuel chapter 9) through 1 Samuel 31 (Old Testament, book of 1 Samuel, chapter 31)].

The famous people that “donate to charity” oftentimes feel guilty about all the extra money they have laying around and want to feel a little better about themselves, thus, they “donate to charity”. But what are they donating to charity FOR? Are they doing it for the glory of God/Jesus Christ or for the glory of themselves and their “image”?

Many people in today’s world (celebrities and non-celebrities alike) seem to have the thought: “if I just had lots of money, that’d solve all my problems”. But what they don’t realize is that MONEY INCREASES PROBLEMS and MONEY BREEDS MISERY. The saying is true: “the more you have, the more you want”. When you’re “rich” and “have everything you need”, you feel restless and unfulfilled. But when you have to actually WORK for things, you tend to appreciate them more, am I right?  

Many people who aren’t famous oftentimes can’t understand why certain celebrities are “so miserable” and struggle with “depression/drugs/alcohol” and the like. But what the non-famous people won’t realize is that fame is A PRISON……yes, you heard me right…..a PRISON…..a spiritual prison by which they will never break free UNLESS they defy it all and become a believer and follower of Jesus Christ Almighty!!!!!!!

Because the truth is, God gave us all a conscience FOR A REASON!!! And I think, deep deep down, many of them KNOW what they’re doing is wrong and they feel guilty about it. Sadly, many of them are SO far deep down the rabbit hole of Luciferian darkness, that they don’t know HOW or where to begin, on their personal quest to move towards Jesus Christ and AWAY from the darkness that encapsulates them!

Many of them fear being put out on the streets and left with NOTHING. So they stay. Even though the “hazards” of fame and fortune are wearing down on them, they feel as though they have no choice BUT to stay in the “Luciferian system” of things. And this is SO sad & tragic. Because if they would just SUBMIT themselves to the Lord Jesus Christ, once and for all, and QUIT Hollywood/celebrity/fame, and COMPLETELY leave Hollywood/fame behind, IN THE DUST (as in, physically AND spiritually move away from LA/Hollywood altogether), I’m nearly certain that the Lord Jesus Christ would forgive them, welcome them with open arms, and give them a brand new spiritual life IN HIM!

I believe that if they TRULY want to serve Jesus Christ from now on and NOT Satan and want to TRULY make amends for their past Satanic ways, as in, going public with their faith and talking about all the reasons why they were wrong to have previously turned to fame/Hollywood/Satanism and also talk about WHY people need to put their faith, trust and love into Jesus Christ and Jesus Christ alone and preach the gospel of Jesus Christ NON-STOP until the day they die,  I believe that the Lord Jesus Christ can save them and use them in mighty, powerful ways to help turn young people AWAY from Satan/Satanism and turn them towards the light/Jesus Christ]].

[[HOWEVER: the book of Revelation talks about the Mark of the Beast. In the end times (which we’re currently living in, btw), world governments are working towards a one world government, one world religion and one world economic “system”. And this “new system” will arise out of “seeming chaous” (political, religious, economic). But a man will come onto to the world scene and appear to be the answer to everyone’s problems. This being (likely disguised as a mortal man) will be the Antichrist. He will require ALL flesh (man, woman, child) to take a mark on their right hand or their forehead in order to be able to buy or sell. And God says that WHOMEVER takes “The Mark” will NOT be forgiven in THIS life OR the next life, which is eternity. Don’t believe me? The “technology” for that sort’ve thing is ALREADY HERE, FOLKS! Examine:]]

Jesus Christ himself said in Matthew 19:26 “But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possibleand in John 14:13-14And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it“.

But the simple answer is this: ANYTHING OUTSIDE OF JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY WILL NOT PROSPER! Let me put that in a different way. The REASON these people feel such a huge hole in their soul is BECAUSE they don’t have Jesus Christ in their lives! The answer is SO simple, it’s often overlooked! Many of them turn to Buddhism or Kabbalah or other “New Age” religion to try to “free their mind” from “the system” but the truth is, Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to Eternal Paradise, the ONLY way to receive eternal forgiveness of sins and the ONLY way to be set free of things!

Some “celebs” have left the Hollywood scene behind to “focus on family” and the like. But my guess is that some of these folks “found Jesus Christ” and just don’t want to say that in the public media (for whatever reason). But for all those tons and tons of “celebs” who haven’t yet found Jesus Christ, I pray for them and my heart grieves for them! For they have NO IDEA of the “hell” that they’re headed for, after they die! ;(

Many of these people were “broken”, to begin with. They came from an abusive household, their parents got divorced when they were young, they’ve struggled with depression their whole lives, they were sexually or physically abused as a kid and so for THEM, acting/singing/writing is a sort’ve “escape” from these things. And they seem to have this way of thinking: “if I just become famous, that’ll solve all my problems and I’ll never have to hurt or want for anything, ever again!”

But oftentimes, what they don’t realize is that money/fortune/fame INCREASES their problems and MULTIPLIES THEM, by leaps and bounds. And then, when they are broken BEYOND broken, they oftentimes turn to “Satan” in hopes that Satan can make all their problems go away. But if anything, Satan TRAPS THEM into the world of darkness with threats, fear, etc., so that they feel as though they can never leave.

But with Jesus Christ Almighty, and by the POWER of Jesus Christ Almighty, they CAN leave the Luciferian system of celebrity and start a new life in Jesus Christ (if they so desire) and they want to, badly enough. For Jesus Christ can take the most FILTHIEST sinner and make them spiritually cleansed/”as white as snow”, if a person truly submits to his heavenly name! 

Even Kanye West (of all people) admitted ON STAGE (about selling his soul to the devil) that : “I know it was a crappy deal”. So sounds to me as if he has some major REGRETS about the whole thing. Bob Dylan ALSO didn’t look happy during a recent interview when he admitted he soul his soul for fortune and fame.

So many of them, once they discover “it’s not all it’s cracked up to be”, live to REGRET IT and feel TRAPPED, as though they have NO WAY OUT…. But what I’m here to say today is that with Jesus Christ Almighty, they CAN have a way out. True, they might have to go back to being average Joe Schmoe or Jane Doe and might even have to work a day job, but so what, it’d be worth it.

Jesus Christ Is The ONLY THING That Satisfies!

With the world being so “crazy” today, many people are searching for answers. They feel empty inside and are trying to search for the one thing or things or people that they think will make them feel “complete” or “happy” in life. Many famous music and movie stars turn to things such as money, publicity stunts, religions like Scientology or Kabbalah (a form of Jewish Mysticism) to try to fill that “empty hole” in their lives. Other people turn to alcohol/partying, sex or drugs. Yet others find themselves turning to food, entertainment (music, movies, books, television, videgogames, etc.) or “new age spirituality” for comfort.

But they are overlooking one simple thing. Jesus Christ is the ONLY thing that satisfies and makes one feel “complete”! (That is, when one fully gives themselves over to Jesus Christ and surrenders their life and heart to Him!)

I know it sounds clique but it’s true.

God is the one who created us, who knew us before we were born, who knows our future and of whom can even count the numbers of hairs on our head.

Therefore, he knows each and every single one of personally (personality traits and all) and knows what’s best for us. His divine love satisfies better than ANY amount of money, sex, drugs, food, partying, entertainment or “new age spirituality” EVER could!

So for those people out there in the world who have resisted Jesus Christ/God, turned their back on Him, or don’t believe in Him, give God a chance. Get to know Jesus Christ today. Jesus Christ loves EVERYONE, regardless of race, gender, culture & no matter WHAT they’ve done so far in life! (There is NO hidden catch! God’s love is FREE to all who accept it!) God loves you, each and every single one of you and He wants to get to know you!

However, Jesus Christ can not help a person that REFUSES to get help, REFUSES to believe in him, REFUSES to have faith & trust in him, REFUSES to repent/give up their sins. Jesus Christ (at Judgement Day) will judge ALL those who turned their backs on him while they were living or those that “profused” to believed in him but followed their OWN ways, instead of God’s ways.

However, if you cry out to Jesus Christ in prayer (& mean the prayer with all your soul, all your mind, and all your heart & all your strength & BELIEVE that he has the power to help you/save you for eternity), He WILL change your life for the better, if you ask Him to! He WILL cleanse you from all sin & “negative baggage” and allow his Holy Spirit to bring peace & joy over your spirit and in your life! Peace & joy that you’ve never known before!

So, you may think that you “gave God” a chance once and that you didn’t feel Him working in your life, but let me ask you this. Have you TRULY given God a chance? Did you TRULY surrender your heart and your life to Him and lay all your hopes/dreams/worries at his feet?

It doesn’t matter WHAT you’ve done in your life so far, God’s love is free & accessible to ALL who desire it. It doesn’t matter if you’ve killed 5 people or 50 people. It doesn’t matter if you’ve robbed a bank or dealt drugs. It doesn’t matter if you were once involved with or even currently involved in porn. It doesn’t matter if you’re a man who walked out on your wife/ex-wife and kids & hadn’t made child support payments in a long time or if you’re a mother who abandoned your kids and/or your husband. It doesn’t matter if you once stole a huge sum of items from the mall or the grocery store or if you used to mercilessly bully someone while you were in grade-school, middle school or high-school.

Jesus Christ LOVES you and he wants to give you a 2nd chance in life! He wants to renew your mind, heart, body and spirit and make you a new creature and give you a brand new life in him! 😉 He can take what’s UNRIGHTEOUS in a person and make them RIGHTEOUS! But they have to want it. They have to feel SO much REMORSE over what they’ve done in life so far, that they’d be willing to do almost anything to change it. And that’s where Jesus Christ comes in. Once a person BELIEVES in him, CALLS OUT to him in prayer, REPENTS of their sins and then GETS FULL-WATER-IMMERSION-BAPTIZED in his great heavenly name, they are MADE NEW in his site! 😉

See, that’s just the thing. Jesus Christ died on the cross over 1976+ years ago at the Place of Golgotha so that you and I and all of mankind could be forgiven of all our sins. ALL of our sins. Not just SOME of them, but ALL of them. And many people today are even WANTING a 2nd chance in life and WANTING to start on a fresh, clean slate, as it were. I can’t tell you HOW many times I’ve heard people say or mention on forum boards online that they wish they could “do life all over again”. Well, with Jesus Christ, you CAN start your life all over again and live a brand new life! And like I said, it doesn’t matter WHAT you’ve done in life so far, who you are, where you came from. Jesus’s FREE gift of salvation/forgiveness of sins and everlasting life is open to ALL who accept him, trust/believe in him, get baptized in his name and consequently, live their lives for him.

Jesus was crucified, then later taken down and placed into a tomb by Joseph of Ariamathea, etc. The Romans placed guards outside the tomb and placed a heavy stone in front of it so that no man could steal the body. Three days later, Jesus was resurrected from the dead, just like he said he’d be, and the heavy stone had been rolled away. His linen cloths were laying there where his body once was but Jesus’s body was no longer in the tomb. And then he appeared (with the marks through his hands and feet) to his apostles, etc. And 40 days after that, he ascended up to heaven to be on the right hand side of God, the Almighty Heavenly Father and there are even NON-CHRISTIAN historical accounts of this!

http://factreal.wordpress.com/2013/03/29/jesus-resurrection-proven-by-early-non-christian-writers/

Jesus Christ is 100% real, people! I’ve seen him with my own two eyes during a near-death experience when I was around age 2 or so. His voice has the ability to shake the Earth and the waters. Plus he also showed me the holes in both his wrists and near the tops of his feet.

Therefore, it stands to reason. If Jesus Christ is real (and I KNOW for 100% fact he’s real, so help me God, so help my spirit!), then Satan is real. And if Satan is real, then hell is real. And if hell is real…………well, you get the picture.

Notice the people around you. Examine real closely how they’re living their lives. And slowly over time, you will start to see that the people that “claim” they believe in God but don’t want to live their lives for him/serve him and the people who are nonbelievers or believers of false religions seem “lost”. You can see it in their eyes. They act all happy on outside but you can tell that deep, deep down inside, they are restless, never happy, never satisfied but they can’t fully figure out why. So they try the partying thing, the New Age thing, etc. and you will notice that they STILL aren’t satisfied and again, they STILL can’t figure out why. Just look at all the music and movie stars that are burned out, on drugs, alcoholics, etc. Fame and fortune most certainly has its price. And it’s not JUST the “living under the microscope” price, but rather, an EVEN MORE heftier price than THAT……rather, an eternal price!!!!!!!

Many of them even tried selling their soul to the devil in exchange for money and fame. But ya know what? Even then, there’s still hope for some of those poor people, as the following case demonstrates:

Unfortunately, some celebrities aren’t so lucky……..they don’t realize that Satan’s the great deceiver who actually HATES them and ALL of humanity……and that he never permanently upholds his end of the deal……..and many of them buy into the lie “well, I’ve sold my soul to devil, that’s it, there’s no more hope for me”. False! There IS hope for them. And that hope is the Lord Jesus Christ. If they humbly and SINCERELY come to Jesus Christ in prayer, and seek to UNDO the “soul selling to devil”, then I believe that the Lord will forgive them. I have no reason to believe otherwise. For our souls aren’t even ours to begin with, for they belong to God and God alone and it’s Jesus Christ who will decide where each soul spends eternity, NOT Satan!

Sadly, many celebrities and non-celebrities alike die without the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and are placed in hell immediately upon their deaths. And for them, THE MOST painful revelation in hell is the fact that they COULD’VE avoided all that eternal pain and suffering had they submitted themselves and their lives and hearts to the Lord Jesus Christ before it was too late (meaning, before they passed away and died in their earthly mortal lives). Cause afterall, the gifts of salvation/forgiveness of sins and eternal life are FREE to all who accept/trust/serve Jesus Christ.

For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” – Mark 8:36 (book of Mark, chapter 8, verse 36)
