American Idols

“Here are the laws and rulings you are to observe and obey in the land Adonai, the God of your ancestors, has given you to possess as long as you live on earth… Do not worship the LORD your God in the way these pagan peoples worship their gods… You will not do things the way we do them here today, where everyone does whatever in his own opinion seems right…” (Deuteronomy 12:1,4,8)

Adonai is a jealous and vengeful God.
Adonai avenges; he knows how to be angry.
Adonai takes vengeance on his foes
and stores up wrath for his enemies.
3 Adonai is slow to anger, but great in power;
and he does not leave the guilty unpunished.
Adonai’s path is in the whirlwind and storm,
and the clouds are the dust of his feet.
4 He rebukes the sea and leaves it dry,
he dries up all the rivers.
Bashan and the Karmel languish;
the flower of the L’vanon withers.
5 The mountains quake before him,
and the hills dissolve;
the earth collapses in his presence,
the world and everyone living in it.
6 Who can withstand his fury?
Who can endure his fierce anger?
His wrath is poured out like fire,
the rocks broken to pieces before him. (Nahum 1:2-6)

Are you aware of the overpowering influence that the entertainment industry and news media have upon us? And are you aware of the enormous amount of devotion that some of us give to celebrity idols?  And are you aware that GOD is jealous for our devotion and worship? 

I’ll try to be brief although the subject is exhaustive.

Between the two demigods – the entertainment industry and the news media networks –  we are brainwashed into believing what they want us to believe, accepting of what they want us to accept, liking who and what they want us to like and hating who and what they want us to hate as well as worshiping who they say to worship. From our birth until our death, all these things and more or being done to us on a daily basis. And some of us help to perpetuate the deception and mental and emotional slavery by becoming worshipers of idols ourselves and doing so in a nonchalant fashion as if it is normal and acceptable to Father GOD.

For instance, many folks purposely set aside some time everyday or every week to watch their favorite shows on television and to virtually engage with their celebrity idols and entertainers on the internet, television and in the movies and theaters. Everyone goes to the movies to see their favorite star (Idol).

Another example would be how folks show devotion and interest in the happenings in the lives of their celebrity idols. These idols, who don’t care about us and who don’t know us and who wouldn’t come to our funeral, are the very ones that many folks are worshiping and making wealthy, popular and powerful.

Abide Branch idol role model

We have been brainwashed to believe that we should be interested in what goes on in the kardashian’s household.

We have been hypnotized into believing that what goes on with Kanye is newsworthy.

Without any real consideration for our personal taste or Christian morals, we sheepishly allow the powers that be to think for us and tell us what to think and feel.

Without any real supportive educational, academic or ecclesiastical credentials or divine sanctions, we are told that we should care about what our worldly idols have to say about fashion, same-sex marriage, gay rights, parenting, dating and morals.

We have been indoctrinated to believe our idols and trust that whatever the news media says must be true. We have been programmed to accept someone else’s assessment and definition of good, bad, ugly, pretty, smart, dumb, ignorant, righteous, wrong, tasteful and moral.

We have been taught to believe that whatever the entertainment industry and news media represents as beautiful is actually beautiful and what the industry and media calls ugly is actually ugly and what world says is morally righteous is actually righteous.   We have been so thoroughly brainwashed by the the elements and devices of the supreme god of this world that we now have the most disrespectful, promiscuous, under-dressed, foul-mouthed generation that the Christian era has ever known.

We or told that naked ain’t naked and indecent is now normal and lewdness is now statue quo. And although mankind did not create the institutions of marriage and family, a group of human beings dared to impose their wicked judgment against GOD’S ETERNAL MORAL TRUTH and illegally change what the ALMIGHTY YAHWEH has decreed, hallowed and sanctified for all eternity into something demonic, perverted, vile, offensive and against nature. (Daniel 7:25; Ref. The Supreme Court’s Decision of June 26, 2015)

The demigods of this world have brainwashed many of us so completely that even while we are being physically massacred and spiritually assaulted, we are unwilling to defend ourselves and our CHRISTIAN FAITH. 

Satan god of this world

Some of us have been mentally and spiritually lulled to sleep and drained dry of our original divinity whereas we have become soulless automatons; controlled and manipulated by the god of this worlds; reprogrammed to trust in what “they” say as opposed to what THE LIVING WORD OF YAHWEH says; serving the new morality (Doctrines of demons) while abandoning the divine and eternal principles of Yahweh and His Holiness.

Next time you are tempted to watch an entertainment award show or an interview with a industry-made celebrity or listen to a news report about which celebrity idol is having a baby or is pregnant or had butt implants or had a sex change, ask yourself theses 7 questions:

  • How does this “celebrity news” benefit me and my family and improve my quality of life?
  • Why should I care what is happening in the lives of celebrities when they have not shown any concern for what is happening in my life?
  • At the end of the day, does paying attention to celebrities increase or improve my health, increase my wealth and secure my family’s posterity and safety?
  • Is God being glorified whenever I esteem and exalt an idol god?
  • Is YAHWEH pleased with my endorsement and financial support of the demigods’ morals, activities, lifestyle and projects?
  • Would Christ and/or His Apostles be interested in showing support for cussing comedians, fornicating actors, lying gospel performers, vulgar secular singers, sexually perverted preachers, hypocritical talk show and game sow hosts and same-sex advocates and enemies of GOD?
  • Can I applaud the work of Satan and still praise and worship God?

I pray that this article helps to answer the question: “ARE WE WORSHIPING IDOLS?”

Dear FATHER, I have sounded the Alarm OH LORD. I have told your obedient children what you would have them to hear and to know. I pray that Your Holy Spirit opens the eyes of the blind and unstops deaf ears so that the listening soul may both understand and hear your WORD and REPENT. Please continue to show us how to live pleasing to you and how to give you the HONOR AND THE PRAISE. Help to repent of idol worship. Amen.

No One Understands Us Like God


Sometimes all you need is for someone to really understand and appreciate what you are dealing with and the struggles you have had to overcome and are overcoming everyday. You don’t want their money or their praises. You just want their understanding.


Sometimes friends don’t understand what you are going through.

Sometimes family members are oblivious to your grief, inner sufferings and pains.

Sometimes your pastor cannot relate to what you are struggling with.

Sometimes your spouse doesn’t understand you.

The only one who really understands us is the One who made us – Jesus Christ. And He upholds us by His Word of Power. (Hebrews 1:1-4)

There is not a friend like Jesus!  He knows all about struggles and He will comfort and guide ‘till the day is done. Jesus is our only true friend.  Amen! Amen!!

God Understands!

Then My Living Shall Not Be in Vain

On this past weekend I attended a memorial service for an elderly gentleman.  The presiding personality came to a portion of the service where family, friends, community and church were asked to say something memorable about the deceased; to speak to his good qualities, deeds, character, personality or service.  After a long moment of deathly silence, not one soul rose to speak on his behalf.  No one had anything to say.

I thought that this was a sad commentary to the close of a life that had spent over 73 years on earth. 

I am sure that someone had something good to say about the deceased.  However, they just weren’t at the funeral that day.

This made me pause and think to myself, “I don’t want my living to be in vain.”  I want somebody to miss something about me that would make it easy for them to speak at my memorial service.  I want to help somebody to the extent that if they were to be asked to help eulogize me, it wouldn’t a chore but a pleasant stroll down memory lane. 

If I can help somebody, as I pass along,
If I can cheer somebody, with a word or song,
If I can show somebody, how they’re travelling wrong,
Then my living shall not be in vain.
