HOLLYWOOD'S WIZARD WAND OF SATANIC IMAGES
by Pastor Jeromy John Visser
Brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus, this morning's topic will be called Hollywood's Wizard Wand of Satanic Images and we'll be looking deeper at a little lesser-discussed tactic of the enemies of Christ -- images. I'll be reading several scriptural accounts that prove the Israel people have been ensnared by 'graven images' in times past and then we'll focus our attention to the biggest producer of mainstream "moving pictures" that have the same effect today -- Hollywood, California.
Having been born and raised in Los Angeles and spending a majority of my own teenage years in the sleazy city of Hollywood I hope to shed some light this morning on some common misconceptions about the movie industry and television "programming" in general. Many Christians 'in name only' are willingly ignorant of Yahweh's perfect Word and because of their unfamiliarity they become unable to spot seemingly blatant messages from the enemy coming through the "airwaves."
It's no wonder really -- Satan himself is known as the "prince of the power of the air (Ephesians 2:2)" and Baal-zebub literally means "lord of the fly [singular] (#H1176)." The false 'rapture doctrine' belongs to the father of lies who invented it and many judeo-Christians can be found saying "I'll fly away (Oh, glory)." Still, the 'air' as we know it is Satan's playground and his children work year-round on godless "motion picture" productions that warp and pervert minds persistently.
For those of you who studied along with Thou Shalt Not Suffer A Witch To Live, you might be interested to discover that according to European traditions the wood of the holly tree supposedly repelled evil and was the chosen substance for "wizard's wands." The name holly is derived from the Saxon word "holy" yet any half-awake Christian should be able to see that there is nothing virtuous coming out of "Tinseltown." Instead, it's the city of Satanic 'lights' and graven images.
Anything we spend more time with than God runs a major risk of becoming an idol yet so many parents allow 'the electronic babysitter' to do their jobs for them usually setting their own bad examples by allowing themselves to be "programmed" by hours of filth spewed forth from 'the talmudic trashcan' also known as television. We have seen major changes in society since the invent of motion pictures and sadly most of them have been detrimental to our people and Christianity.
The media itself has become its own worldly-powerful "god" deceiving many who trust in the lies of Satan's illusions. Some will say "you can't believe everything you see on television" while others might say "you can only believe in part" but the correct answer is that we cannot trust in anything that is presented in a non-dimensional world of 'images.' It's not reality and sadly so many people miss this point -- the evening news and prime time television are all portrayed by actors.
(Woe To Hypocrites:)
Whether it's Tom Hanks portraying a sodomite, Morgan Freeman pretending to be God or a kenite jew playing the role of Jesus -- the false interpretations of these characters are brought forth on the "silver screen" by actors who place themselves in a fictional role. In the Holy scriptures, the word hypocrite means "an actor under an assumed character, a stage player or a dissembler (#G5273)" so we should look at Jesus' own teachings about those who assume deceitful, false roles.
Jesus says; "Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, because you shut the kingdom of heaven against men: for you yourselves do not enter in and those that are going in, you suffer not to enter (Matthew 23:13)." Let's take God's Word for what it plainly says and trust that there are false 'brethren' who assume deceitful roles in order to keep others from entering into the very Kingdom that they won't be accepted in. Would these snakes prosper from jobs in television and film?
For example, when Yahweh's eternal Law teaches us; "A woman shall not wear men's clothing, neither shall a man put on women's clothing; for whoever does these things is an abomination to Yahweh your God (Deuteronomy 22:5 hnv)" do actors like Patrick Swayze feel they'll somehow slip past God for their participation in To Wong Foo or do they even care? Unlike my former childhood church, this ministry does take a strong anti-homosexual standpoint as God's Law demands.
I'm of the train of thought that these types of unvirtuous hypocrites need hardly "act" to place themselves in the role of a transsexual or queer for the sake of "harmless entertainment" because any type of man with a grain's worth of morality or 'good pride' would never consider the act -- even in jesting. Ironically, a majority of Hollywood actors are involved in either the false religion of Christian Science or one of the many abominations hiding under the mask of wicked judaism.
What do you feel Jesus thinks about such nuggets as The Last Temptation of Christ, Jesus Christ Superstar or any of the abundant "epic" miniseries released on television all portraying Him as a prostitute-seeking wimp, a rock-star hippie or even worse -- a jew? Don't you think that "God revealed in the flesh (I Timothy 3:16)" might just be a little saddened and upset by so many siding with Pilate's wrongful accusation (John 19:19-22) that the Savior of mankind was "King of the Jews?"
Still, these 'stage-players' ramble on -- year after year -- playing different "characters" in each movie usually building a fan-base in the process while they present biased situational representations or work according to the talmudic agenda seeking to destroy Christianity and eliminate Christians. Rarely will a television viewer hear the precious name of Jesus Christ and when he does it's usually in outright mockery -- the literal children of Satan working over at TBN and PTL anyone?
(No Graven Images:)
The enemy usually works through graven 'images' or the works of man's own hands and many examples of Luciferian influence can be seen in all forms of 'art' whether it be music, paintings, literature, sculptures, photography and motion pictures just to name a few. It seems that whenever a man takes his eyes off Jesus he will eventually slip deeper into the humanistic world of perversion and it is reflected in his craft -- compare Andy Warhol's tripe to that of Gustave Doré.
There's Satanic roots in rock music yet at times the lyrical messages are perceived backwards with the hypocritical PMRC attacking 'anti-government' music while promoting their multicultural "contemporary Christian music" with an even more abominable anti-God message. We must "try the spirits (I John 4:1)" of all things and determine whether or not they glorify Yahweh while doing so, the type of current garbage being released from Hollywood is antichrist to say the least.
Let's look at the second commandment; "Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I Yahweh thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me (Exodus 20:4-5)." This verse says 'them that hate' God.
Is it any wonder there's an "American Idol" television show fully-supported by your local mall? The media has had a very direct influence on the trends of fashion, feminism, equality and has helped to decline western civilization even further. Fabian was considered to be a "teen idol" and even today there are delusion souls who still worship "the king" Elvis Presley. Gidget was actually a whore and the 'Leave It To Beaver lifestyle' never existed. An image is usually illusionary.
The lists are virtually endless and it's humanly impossible to list all the abominable practices and teachings that have come from media 'conditioning' but one has to wonder if such perverts like Charles Manson, Timothy Leary, Howard Stern or Anton Szandor LaVey would have attained their 'pop icon' superstar level if not for the continual 'hype' created by the enemy. It doesn't really require an actual war to cause panic and civil unrest among the masses but merely the threat of war.
The side of Hollywood that's rarely seen on 'the box' is the reality of the city itself. Having lived in an apartment directly off Hollywood Boulevard for some time in the early nineties, I can personally attest to the fact that "the Strip" heavily relies on tourist trade during the day but during the evening hours is a breeding cesspool of prostitution, homosexuality, homelessness, synthetic drugs and other unmentionables. Many times I saw hopeful 'actresses' leave the cruel streets in ruin.
(God's Hate List:)
Let's now look a little bit closer at 'the hate list' and see how many violations we can find when dealing with Hollywood and New York's television sitcoms; "These six things doth YHVH hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren (Proverbs 6:16-19)."
The 'proud look' and 'lying tongue' are pretty obvious violations due to the superficial nature of television. Releasing such chunks as Highway To Heaven and Amen seem rather blatant yet it is actually the subtle (Genesis 3:1) tactics of 'commercialism' that our enemy focuses on. Presenting abominable things as normal to society or "politically correct" as opposed to Biblically sound is an attack on Yahweh Himself. Thousands of TV programs center around "millennial multiculturalism."
At times, the media has a direct result in 'hands that shed innocent blood' due to their own 'wicked imaginations' or creations. Would the Massacre at Ruby Ridge have escalated as far as it did had it not been for the newscasters continual smears and would "the right to sell a firearm without [man's] permit" have been a crime under God's Law? No, practically every depraved creation that comes out of "Hollywood Babylon" is from the enemy's heart or mind yet so few seem to notice.
The term 'feet that be swift in running to mischief' kind of reminds me of nosey news 'reporters' that over-sensationalize an issue -- such madness as the crack-head Rodney King beating, the O.J. Simpson murder trial and the Night Stalker mind come to mind. Nonetheless, many unneeded strivings and controversies have been brought forth through the media specifically targeted against Christianity and the end result is usually a slanted smear against God's eternal Law and his chosen race.
Without a doubt many newscasters have been exposed for being 'a false witness that speaketh lies' yet so few seem to even care or take notice. Many judeo-Christians look towards the television in order to glean worldly wisdom yet Jeremiah 5:31 teaches us; "The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?" Many in churchianity feel they can serve both God and the world -- this is unscriptural.
Does Hollywood sensationalism sow discord among the brethren? Without a doubt! The blatant anti-white, anti-man and straightforward antichrist 'images' put forth through the airwaves have been a powerful weapon in targeting a brainwashed response towards self-preservation. Many feel that 'racists' are "trailer-park trash" or "ignorant" yet they are usually counted amongst the wisest of men. We certainly live in an immoral age where the very name of Jesus is considered a dirty word.
(Enmity Towards God:)
At this point I'd like to offer you my own opinion -- get the television out of your homes. If you're not spending more time with God then you do watching the twisted views of man on the "boob tube" then you're already found in violation of the second commandment. Speaking for myself, it's been a very long time since I've allowed my home to be violated by the endless barrage of jewish propaganda and distortions coming from the media and feel no less 'wiser' for having done so.
James asks us; "Know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God (James 4:4)" in keeping with the Biblical instructions of 'one or the other' with no gray areas. Paul commands Christians to do this; "Abstain from all appearance of evil (I Thessalonians 5:22)" meaning not just 'parts of' wickedness or 'bits and pieces' of secular reasoning -- all appearance of evil, period. Abstain from all sinful appearances.
In order to understand what constitutes 'sin' in the Bible, we must first read the very definition of the act; "Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law (I John 3:4). This means that a believer must contrast the endless inventions of man with the immortal Will of God known as His Law as found in our scriptures. If Yahweh says that witches and homosexuals are abominable in His eyes then we'd better listen and resist these ill practices.
In most television shows there is a slant, it might be a feminist agenda like seen in the Mary Tyler Moore Show or a pro-homosexual 'vision' as seen in Ellen. It could be pro-jewish like Jerry Seinfeld or simply anti-family like Married With Children or The Simpsons. Still, all of these abominations have one thing in common -- they're considered forms of 'entertainment' or amusement. Compare the newer "reality shows" with the feeding of the Christians to lions in old pagan Rome.
As a modern English word muse means "to be absorbed in one's thoughts, engage in meditation or to think" while the opposite of this same word is amuse meaning "to delude or deceive." It's safe to say that most forms of 'amusement' cause the engager not to think and this same rule applies to television 'programming' yet there are TV's to be found in the public school classrooms, major universities, seminary schools, preschools and the 501(c)3 judeo-Babylon churches today.
Jesus teaches; "For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also (Matthew 6:21)" and "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 (Matthew 6:24)." The pointless and endless onslaught of movies 'launching' from Hollywood warp almost every aspect of human history but their most targeted group are obviously the true Protestant Christians -- we should do all we can to rid our eyes of media.
(Talebearers Reveal Secrets:)
What about the term "Hollywood gossip?" Many scandal-centered programs like Entertainment Tonight and The Tonight Show focus on the lifestyles of these same hypocritical actors or the "rich and famous" yet none of these things matter when trying establish Yahweh's Kingdom "as in heaven, so in earth (Luke 11:2)." The judeo-fictional tabloids exploit humanity to it's lowest level and have cost numerous lives and careers with their endless slandering and meaningless 'man-worship.'
Many young women in society are influenced by such undesirables as Madonna (no relation to virtuous Mary) and Britney Spears even growing into adulthood mimicking their lifestyles by resorting to miscegenation, homosexuality and general godlessness. The degrading world of man has also seen The Culture Club and their homosexual lead-singer "Boy" George exclaim "I'm a man without conviction" asking "do you really want to hurt me?" My answer is a positive yes -- where's my bat?
Let's compare these snakes to the teachings of scripture; "One who brings gossip betrays a confidence, but one who is of a trustworthy spirit is one who keeps a secret (Proverbs 11:13 hnv)." Wise Solomon taught; "Meddle not with him that revealeth secrets, and walketh deceitfully, and openeth wide his lips (Proverbs 20:19 drb)" and the prophet Ezekiel confirms that "In thee [Israel] are men that carry tales to shed blood: in the midst of thee they commit lewdness (Ezekiel 22:9)."
Gossip is a tactic of the adversary yet so many are 'tossed to and fro' by social trends and infatuated with "talk shows" that center around the slums of society and are most times fictional accounts. For example, consider the demonic August Kreis' buffoonish appearance on Jerry Springer's show and his fictional representation as "head of the Aryan Nations" to the degrading effect it's had upon the true Church of Jesus Christ Christian and Bible Truth in general -- the bandwagon of brainwashing.
Numerous 'new' abominations have been brought forth through perverted daytime television shows and their popularity has even helped homosexuals out of the closet while putting woman in positions of power over men. Practically all manner of filth in the eyes of Almighty God will be brought forth and 'discussed' by the likes of Geraldo Rivera, the race-mixing Jenny Jones, Montel Williams or kenite Jerry Springer. "By their fruits then surely ye shall know them (Matthew 7:20 darby)."
The mindset of Yahweh on gossip is unquestionable; "You shall not go up and down as a slanderer among your people; neither shall you stand against the life of your neighbor. I am Yahweh (Leviticus 19:16 hnv)." Christians should not be concerned about celebrities but always be focused on the life of Jesus Christ -- we should never "speak against our own brothers" nor "lay a scandal against our own mother's son (Psalm 50:20 drb)." Let's do all we can to avoid the snares of the devil.
(Few Are Chosen:)
Many parents regrettably overlook the underlying message to be found in such children's "entertainment" as Pocahontas, A Shark's Tale, Harry Potter, Shrek, Beauty and the Beast and so many more multicultural atrocities being vomited forth by pro-homosexual companies like DreamWorks Pictures. Some allow their younger children to view this type of rubbish for hours upon hours but wonder why when their kids grow to be teenagers they eagerly attend Disneyworld's annual "Gay Day."
Numerous sexual innuendos and graphic images have been found scattered throughout many current animated Disney titles and books have even been written on the subject with undeniable 'picture proof' to the allegations. The now jewish-owned and operated Disney company retorted by saying they once had an 'unruly inkman' but he was released from his job yet still many parents have the insolence to say things like "Only brother Visser could find fault with Walt Disney cartoons."
All these 'images' have an effect on our children whether we wish to admit it or not and like sponges they absorb everything they see and hear. The entertainment industry makes no apologies about their open distortion and rarely even try to cover their real intentions, many film trailers will say something along the lines of "The most perverted romantic comedy ever says Rolling Stone Magazine" or "You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll vomit, you'll hurl." The spiritually sick can't even see correctly.
Superficial judeo-Christian soccer-moms will not like what I'm going to say next but it's from the Word of God; "Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it (Proverbs 22:6)" and "Whoso keepeth the law is a wise son: but he that is a companion of riotous men shameth his father (Proverbs 28:7)." Parents who go to Ricki Lake complaining that their own daughters are being beaten by their negro boyfriends obviously didn't train them up in God's Law.
Psalm 132:12 promises us; "If thy children will keep my covenant and my testimony that I shall teach them, their children shall also sit upon thy throne for evermore." Our duty to Yahweh is to train our own children in His perfect Way and Law because all souls belong to Him and He is the giver of all life and blessings. Many parents are infatuated with the world so they coerce their own children into being ballplayers, lawyers, bankers or worse while ignoring God and His warnings or curses.
If "many are called, but few are chosen (Matthew 22:14)" and "narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it (Matthew 7:14)" then it's pretty safe to say that the majority is always wrong. We cannot serve two masters nor a 'universal church' that sides with the enemy -- it's our children who are the future and their minds must be focused on Christianity in order to continue fighting should the Lord tarry. As the love of many "waxes cold" let's love our families and protect them.
(Biblical Conspiracy Theories:)
Charles Manson was an avid fan of The Beatles, jewish film-maker Roman Polanski shot his movie Rosemary's Baby (about talmudic blood libel) in New York's Dakota building, John Lennon is shot by 'born-again Christian" Mark David Chapman in the same Dakota, Polanski's actress wife Sharon Tate is murdered by Charlie Manson's 'family' being hung upside-down in the #12 Tarot Card's 'hangman position' and Polanski later directs The Ninth Gate with focus on this style of murder. Helter Skelter!
I'm sure that at about this point in today's sermon many people will be saying to themselves something along the lines of "that sure sounds like a lot of conspiracy theories" and probably dismiss our entire study never giving these verses any further thought. There are many 'conspiracies' to be found in both the Bible and man's artificial world so let's now focus on some to prove that these same types of methods are used against Christians today. "There is no new thing under the sun (Ecclesiastes 1:9)."
When Joash's servants wanted to murder him they "rose up and made a conspiracy, and smote Joash in the house of Millo (II Kings 12:20) and schemes were also dreamed up against king Amaziah before he was murdered in Lachish (II Kings 14:19 & II Chronicles 25:27). Shallum ruled over the people of Israel for only one month because he was slaughtered for starting a few lame conspiracies of his own (II Kings 15:15) while Hoshea conspired and killed Pekah for man's worthless throne (II Kings 15:30).
Finally, there were forty jews who stirred up a conspiracy against Paul (Acts 23:13) and an untold number of conspiracies started by the enemy after the blessed resurrection of Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:12-15 & John 20:19). Ezekiel was told by Yahweh that "there is a conspiracy" amongst Israel's prophets because they "have put no difference between the holy and profane, neither have they shewed difference between the unclean and the clean, and I [God] am profaned among them (Ezekiel 22:25-26)."
I give these passages to prove that the word conspiracy is not foreign to our scriptures and that one cannot truly consider themselves a 'Bible-believing' Christian unless they accept this fact. It's strange how many judeo-Christians teach erroneous "prosperity" or "rapture" doctrines worshiping "another Jesus (II Corinthians 11:4)" so a Christian with any identity left might just find themselves wondering how much influence blatantly-false "television evangelists" like Jim Bakker have had on Christendom.
The media could be considered the main propagator of 'conspiracy theories' with their endless gossiping and openly antichrist bias. Not only do the 'tares' continually plot against Christianity but since World War II they have managed to replace it with mere reflection of what it once was and ought to be. "Hate crimes" really only apply to one race and such biased 'alphabet soup groups' like the ADL and SPLC obviously overlook black power groups while focusing their attacks on white Protestantism.
(Bright Morning Stars:)
During this ministry's infancy I spent many months on the Hollywood Strip with brother Chris watching devoted movie fans scrubbing up their favorite idol's 'sidewalk star' or witnessing at The Hollywood Oasis, a Christian "nightclub" where so-called Contemporary Christian Music 'stars' would sometimes play 'gigs' for us unfortunates or offer a free hot dinner. The topic of 'stars' in the Bible is an extremely deep one and hopefully you're familiar with Trees and Stars In The Garden of Yahweh.
Hollywood, California is also called "the city of stars" because of it's depressing history of motion pictures and endless television sitcoms yet in the Bible Yahweh's predestined elect and the angels are referred to as stars. Jesus says; "I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star (Revelation 22:16) and the name hêylêl (pronounced hay-lale') transliterated in our scriptures as Lucifer means; "the morning [early] star (#H1966)." Hollywood definitely has a different type of star.
During my teenage years there were several times when my friends and I would drive up into the Hollywood hills to bombard Robert Zimmerman's mailbox with general mischief because we all hated the music of Bob Dylan. Afterwards we would sometimes swing by the famous Hollywood Sign and eventually the topic of conversation would always switch to discussions about failed actress Peg Entwhistle and her suicidal leap from "the large letter H" and the many conspiracies surrounding her death.
Due to the media's endless gossiping it would be impossible to list all the atrocities that have transpired in Hollywood like Fatty Arbuckle's rape and murder of Virginia Rappe, the gruesome Black Dahlia murder, the racially-inspired Los Angeles riots or OJ's own Brown and Goldman Murders. While many serpent film-directors attempt to cover this fact up with selective images found in their own films the truth of the matter is that the godless city has a horrible reputation and a merciless atmosphere.
Obadiah says this about Edom; "Behold, I have made thee small among the heathen: thou art greatly despised. The pride of thine heart hath deceived thee, thou that dwellest in the clefts of the rock, whose habitation is high; that saith in his heart, Who shall bring me down to the ground? Though thou exalt thyself as the eagle, and though thou set thy nest among the stars, thence will I bring thee down, saith Yahweh (Obadiah 1:2-4)." Many modern-day Edomites work within Hollywood's movie industry.
Regrettably, we should also cover one final type of 'star' that also comes from Hollywood and more specifically the city of Van Nuys -- "the porn star." The word fornication as found in our scriptures is taken from the Greek porneia (pronounced por-ni'-ah) and is also the root of our English words pornography or porno. Unfortunately, sometimes when the phony illusion of becoming an actress in Hollywood wears away many godless women will turn towards jewish exploitation in order to pay the bills.
Hollywood and the media in general have the tendency to glamorize anti-Biblical ethics and implant false ideals within the minds of our people. Literally millions of 'crazes' and 'trends' have been started by commercialism and the television has been one of the most powerful weapons in Satan's arsenal having the ability to pervert, distort, misrepresent and slander in general. While the willingly-brainwashed person might enjoy these disturbing images flashed at them -- the Christian should abstain and resist.
Two of the twisted teachings of the talmud are; "Christians are allied with Hell, and Christianity is worse than incest (Abodah Zarah 17)" and "Those who read the Gospels are doomed to Hell (Sanhedrin 90a, 100b)." When we can see the continual twisting of history or Bible verses coming trough the television airwaves all insisting that the modern khazar jews are somehow "God's chosen people" it should be rather obvious who is sending out this type of propaganda without them openly bragging about it.
Still millions of mistaken Christians accept the lie that Jesus was 'jewish' denying the words and lifestyles of the very ones they're giving the birthright to. For example, in the 1980 edition of the Jewish Almanac it blatantly states; "Strictly speaking, it is incorrect to call an ancient Israelite a "Jew" or to call a contemporary Jew an "Israelite" or a "Hebrew (Bantam Books, 1980)" yet many still continue in sin allowing the enemy to dictate 'new doctrines' to them. There are false prophets among us (II Peter 2:1-3).
I am not preaching that the television itself is evil, rather that the spirit behind most primetime broadcasts is one of antichrist and we should all use discernment, especially around impressionable children. On the other hand, many ministries now send out DVD recordings of their pulpit sermons and this blessing can be enjoyed by families alongside numerous other Christian shows usually to be found on independent satellite. Like a computer or human brain, if there's 'garbage in' there's also 'garbage out.'
Jesus teaches us; "Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them (Matthew 7:16-20)." Let's all pay attention to the fruits -- or lack thereof -- coming from Hollywood. War for Christ! Amen.
