In this news article, it’s revealed that the Grace Cathedral in San Francisco recently held a so-called “Beyonce Mass,” in which the provocative, scantily clad and sexually-suggestive singer’s music was played along with “Scripture readings and communion.”
The article says the mass was attended by some 750-900 people and that the line to get in “wrapped around the building Wednesday night.”
Beyonce, who likes to be called “Queen Bey,” has been criticized in the past for the occult themes of some of her concert performances and music videos, including one in which she “struts around with a girl brandishing 666, the number of the antichrist, on her shirt.”
In another performance, Beyonce is said to have made a “Mudra hand gesture symbolizing occultic energy,” in honor of the Hindu goddess Holika, while singing “Ah-oh-ah-oh-ah/Got me feeling drunk and high.” In the same performance her hands are seen “covered with intricate henna designs customary to Hindu religious celebrations.”
In the past, Beyonce has also “posted a risqué picture of herself in front of a depiction of the Last Supper, in which she blocked Jesus out of the photograph with her body. The image was soon deleted after controversy ensued over the matter.”
And of course, her well-known husband, rapper Jay-Z, forthrightly praises Satan in his song “Lucifer,” in which he claims Lucifer’s rebellion against God was a “righteous cause.”
Church leader Jude Harmon told the Huffington Post that he doesn’t see a problem with the Wednesday night offering because “conservative Christians see a high wall separating the Church from the world; progressive Christians do not.”
Progressive Christians, huh? So that’s what they’re calling outright blasphemy now.
I’d counter that with the following words of Jesus Christ in Matthew 7:13-14: “Enter ye in at the strait [i.e., narrow] gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.”
Satan’s “Great Work” of Mixing Good and Evil
Of course, this kind of mixing of worldly music with Christian worship and communion service is nothing new. It was over ten years ago that the Church of England as well as the U.S. Episcopal Church announced they would allow the so-called “U2charist,” which is the taking of the holy communion accompanied by U2 songs instead of traditional Christians hymns of praise to the Lord.
Churches pushing the “U2charist” claimed they were trying to “reach out to people in lager communities, especially younger people,” with messages of “global reconciliation and justice for the poor and oppressed.”
In one of their most famous albums, Joshua Tree, in a song titled “In God’s Country,” the band unabashedly sings “She stands with a naked flame. I stand with the sons of Cain.” In other words, U2 stands with the many-membered body of antichrist, which is largely made up of the sons of Cain and their followers.
Of course, that’s not surprising, since the vast majority of the Christians churches today unwittingly stand with the sons of Cain, as well, erroneously believing them to be “God’s chosen people” (i.e., Revelation 2:9 and 3:9).
I’ve recently commented that Satan’s program for bringing about one-world unity among all people – which is known in occult circles as his “great work” or “magnum opus” — is being accomplished through the blending of polar opposites combined with the mixing of good and evil until a “synthesis” is achieved resulting in a “global transformation” in which everyone is finally “equal” because they’re indistinguishable from one another.
These so-called “church services” in which the worldly evil (i.e., decidedly unchristian music) is mixed with good (i.e., the taking of Holy Communion) is a perfect example of Satan’s so-called “great work,” which ultimately leads to the global transformation called in the Bible, “Mystery, Babylon the Great, the Mother of Harlots and Abominations of the Earth.”
Of course, Satan’s “great work” only corrupts and debauches God’s children, making them unfit for the Father’s eternal family household. And that’s exactly Satan’s plan, i.e., the corruption and debauchery of God’s children so they’re so deeply steeped in sin and spiritual confusion when Christ arrives, they can’t be part of the first resurrection.
That way, Satan gets a second chance at them at the end of the millennium teaching period (Revelation 20:7-9). His ultimate goal is to take as many of God’s children as possible to hell with him at the time of the great white throne judgment (Revelation 20:10-15).
In contrast, God’s program for redeeming and unifying His children is through humble submission to Jesus Christ and His redeeming grace.
If you’d like to learn more about how Satan accomplishes his “magnum opus” of mixing good and evil, and blending polar opposites in order to transform the globe into Mystery, Babylon the Great, the Mother of Harlots and Abominations of the Earth, I recommend the following two in-depth Bible studies, if you haven’t read them already:
Knowing the modus operandi of the enemy allows us to more effectively teach against, and take a firm stand against, the “wiles of the devil” (Ephesians 6:11).
