The odd thing about Beyoncé and her new song (If you can call it that, “Bow Down”) is that it is no surprise to anyone. Oprah Winfrey is no surprise either in dubbing her the “beloved mistress of the universe”. Note that I did not capitalize the title; I see it as a false god presentation to the world. Oprah has her own (no pun intended) issues. She used to call herself a Christian, and then she invites a panel of Christian women on her show to berate them and tell them there have to be several ways to get into heaven. Oprah feels so smart that she can argue with a book that was written over the course 1500 years by more than 36 authors that does not contradict itself and has remained the number one selling book in stores for as long as it has been on bookshelves. No Oprah, Jesus Christ is still King of the Universe there is none other, and No one goes to the Father but by him. First of all I want to be clear. I AM NOT JUDGEING Beyoncé. She is just like the rest of us, open to the infiltration of things that are foreign and destructive to our character, soul and eternal life. I believed and still believe that she is a very talented singer and has the potential to go far in the music industry. However, she also possesses the possibilities of being used by Satan to validate his hidden agenda within the cover of acceptability. Satan is cunning and he never introduces us to things that are not of God unless it is packaged right and it is appealing. Read Genesis 3 for the details of Satan’s trick on Adam and Eve. Beyoncé is just like all of us, in constant pursuit of satisfaction of inner longings. The question is, with what are we satisfying our inner longings?

We have seen photo after photo on the internet, (Google it for yourself) that shows how Beyoncé has identified with things that are demonic and not of this world. From her proclamation of channeling Sasha Fierce to the jewelry that touts her dubious association with the forces of darkness, we see a pattern of behavior that at best can be described as a slippery slope upon which one could fall quickly into a pool of lies. The lie, money, power, fame and glamour are the goals for which we should pursue and finally, we should worship them and the celebrities representing those things.
The root of my concern came when she got hooked up with Jay Z. He has openly displayed and his fans display the sign of the Illuminati and better known as the “Third Eye” which is a visual portal that demonic forces use to connect with our world. While displaying this sign, his fans at concerts will chant Jay Hovah. Um, can you say blasphemy? I really don’t need to make any cases regarding Jay Z. He has made the case himself. He is a demigod (seeming to approach divinity) who seeks the same thing that Satan sought, to be a god like, God almighty. He may be powerful within the music industry. But he is nothing in the universe without God. That means spiritually, he is no higher than any of us and none of us is any higher than him. The difference is only there when God steps in. I will get to that a little later. Jay Z has surrounded himself with an effective organization for business and it has morphed into a pseudo-kingdom of which in his mind he is the King. That mentality has transferred into the mind of his bride.
I hold out hope that Beyoncé is smart enough to figure this out if she had the chance of a sane thought resonating within her. However, I suspect that she is the epitome of a good woman. She loves and supports her man. She believes him to be an authority on whatever he says as he has proven himself to her through his business success. The problem is she has mistaken the doctrine of business for some other doctrine that translates into this perverted persona that has manifested as Sasha Fierce. Have you seen the contortions of her face, body and voice? If you dare to listen to Bow Down, you will hear voices that seem to be Beyoncé. Upon closer consideration, I believe it to be the voice of Sasha Fierce. Oh stop acting like I am losing it. Y’all can watch that foolishness, Paranormal Activity, and when I mention how Demons really work I get the blank stare. The whole thing boils down to a simple concept. When you align yourself with the devil, this is what happens, in the beginning. Later on it gets more hardcore and eventually God takes a stand and judges what is going on and that is what ends it.
As Christians we need to stop listening to stuff that is justified by saying, “Oh it’s alright. A little cussing, a little bling, a little bare skin and sex isn’t going to hurt nobody.” Think again. When you get a shot the first thing you get is the stick. Some will say, oh that wasn’t bad. Then the medicine is pushed in. That is a little more uncomfortable. And then sometimes it burns and hurts for days afterward. That is what happens when we allow anything to get into us. At first it’s not so bad. But when the wrong stuff gets put into us it will kill us spiritually and then it is too late to do anything about. Unless. God provided the unless. What makes us different from other sinners and gullible people who fall for Satan’s foolishness is the redemption of our sin-sick souls by Jesus Christ. When we allow him to free us from the grip of Satan’s lies and sin, he gives us peace. The face of peace is not contorted and angry and demonic. The face of peace is not filled with curses, foul language, violence and self-worship. The face of peace is calm, inviting and humble before the Lord and the entire world. Galatians 5:19-26, 19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, reveling, and such like: of the which I tell you before , as I have also told you in time past , that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. 24 And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. 25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. 26 Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another. KJV
According to the word of God, which I find no error or conflict in, there is none righteous no not one. We are all sinners. The wages of sin is death. But while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 10:9 says that if we confess the Lord Jesus Christ, and believe that God has raised him from the dead, we shall be saved. That sounds like a solid promise. SHALL BE SAVED. No room for deviation in that one. Beyoncé, Jay Z, Oprah and I all have the same opportunity to embrace the death burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ as the payment for our sins so that we can live forever in the Kingdom of Heaven with God. Jay Z may be the King of something. Beyoncé may be the Queen of something too. But I am a child of the most high King and he alone has my adoration, and praises. I worship him and him alone. So no Beyoncé, I don’t believe I am any of those names that you used in your song, but I will not bow down to you or anybody else. I think I’ll just worship Jesus.
