House of Cards or House of Curses- Hollywood and the Various Storms Plunging it. A Spiritual Perspective to the Happenings.
The Devil’s Playground is crushing fast and falling hard.The Dominoes seem to be falling at an alarming rate.The speed at which scandals seem to be coming out of the Movie and especially Hollywood empire makes me very curious.
Barely a week goes by without someone losing or a big secret leaking out. Some of the secrets, decades old. In fact of late some of the stories doing the rounds sound like stuff taken out of movie scripts. Is what we are seeing reality or are we all starring in a big movie?The latest and really dizzying season seems to have started and massively accelerated about the time the Playboy Kingpin Hugh Hefner passed away.
It’s sad that he died because any life lost is a terrible occurrence. But he also sold many souls to the devil through the utterly carnal material he offered for years that corrupted the minds of many men and women. When he had just died, I quickly wondered whether he had got any crowns from the devil for all the work he did or the ungodly empire he run for years.I can only pray that on his death bed, he denounced the devil and accepted Jesus as Lord and saviour.
Anyhow as I was curiously thinking of crowns I just as quickly realized that any worldly deeds done that are not in accordance with the will and the word of God are never worth any riches, fame or anything the devil will ever give anyone because Jesus asks one of the most important questions anyone will ever ask.
What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul? Matthew 16:26
A few days back while discussing the Harvey Weinstein drama and the spiritual implications of the various allegations levied against him, a dear friend asked me some deep and thoughtful questions I couldn’t understand at first.
- Is Harvey Weinstein simply a bait to catch someone bigger?
- 2. Is his story a coverup for something even more devious and sinister in the Kingdom of the devil.
However as the days go on, I’m now certainly starting to get her. According to her, she felt like Harvey Weinstein was taking the fall for someone even higher up the ranks in the devil’s kingdom. And now, I’m certainly starting to understand her point. I mean why would almost everyone suddenly turn on him? The very same people who benefitted from his weakness and sin the most for years.The same people who knew and yet supported and abetted his habits instead of helping him quit?
Unless of course they were all members of the same House. As I contemplated his story as it unfolded, it felt more and more like the Mafia was turning on one of it’s own members and the more I thought about it, the more curious I became.
And now, barely a month since I had that conversation with my friend, another big scandal has broken out in the movie world. Indeed the Devil’s kingdom is turning on itself as Jesus said in these Poignant verses.
“Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand. 26 If Satan drives out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then can his kingdom stand? 27 And if I drive out demons by Beelzebul, by whom do your people drive them out? So then, they will be your judges. 28 But if it is by the Spirit of God that I drive out demons, then the kingdom of God has come upon you.
29 “Or again, how can anyone enter a strong man’s house and carry off his possessions unless he first ties up the strong man? Then he can plunder his house. Matthew 12:25–29
Saga after saga after saga is haunting the Movie World and Hollywood. People seriously need to give their lives to Jesus before it’s too late. We need to repent and turn back to the Lord before he comes back. And let no one make any mistake. Jesus will come back. The same way he went. The scriptures say so and the Bible Scriptures are true and very valid.
“Then will appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven. And then all the peoples of the earth will mourn when they see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory. Matthew 24:30
Anyhow so folks went and dug up 30+ year old dirt on Kevin Spacey.But this life is not easy! 30+ whole years?Who keeps a grudge that long only waiting for the right moment to destroy you and everything you have built for years? The devil of course. It’s only the devil who never forgets sin and waits for an opportune moment to accuse people before God.
The devil lives on accusations and Apostle John wrote this about him in revelations.Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say:
“Now have come the salvation and the power
and the kingdom of our God,
and the authority of his Messiah.
For the accuser of our brothers and sisters,
who accuses them before our God day and night,
has been hurled down. Revelation 12:10
Jesus offers healing, forgiveness and redemption but the devil keeps score and doesn’t forgive. I’m not Justifying Kevin Spacey, Harvey Weinstein, Jeremy Piven or anyone’s carnal and ungodly actions, behavior or lifestyle. However what these stories and unfolding drama teach us is that the Kingdom of Satan which has been hugely supported by the movie and television industry is destroying itself.
The spiritual battle is waging and the invisible forces are battling hard. Many celebrities are going to come under fire. I mean in a space of hours, after the Kevin Spacey stories leaked, Jeremy Piven’s story also found it’s way onto social media and very quickly to the press which doesn’t spare any time in dissemination. For so long many of these movies, series, dramas, produced by Hollywood, Nollywood, Bollywood and other production houses have led many innocent people away from God into living unrighteous and ungodly lives.
Movies and Television have become a powerful tool in which the devil ensnares people’s minds, souls, spirits, hearts and bodies. I know some people will say that Kevin Spacey will bounce back like Ellen Degeneres did when she first came out many years ago.Maybe he will.
Maybe he won’t. I don’t know.That is not my call. But I’m certain of one thing though. God detests sexual immorality of any kind.Yes our world today glorifies sex and immorality but the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob has never changed his mind about sexual purity and living lives of Holiness. In the Old testament, the Books of Leviticus and Deuteronomy offer great insights into these truths.
Further more in the New Testament, Apostle Paul writes this.
Run from sexual immorality! “Every sin a person can commit is outside the body.” On the contrary, the person who is sexually immoral sins against his own body.19 Don’t you know that your body is a sanctuary of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God? You are not your own,20 for you were bought at a price. Therefore glorify God in your body………..1 Corinthians 6:18–20
I can only pray that this situation that has hit the lives of Kevin Spacey, Harvey Weinstein and Jeremy Piven will not destroy their souls but that it will help them to come to a Knowledge of the one true God who is able to heal us of all sin and is able to help us manage addictions and forgive us all our sins. When we seek him and truly repent, the Lord is willing and eager to cleanse us of all unrighteousness. The Psalmist beautifully puts it this way.
“He will not always chide:
neither will he keep his anger for ever.
10 He hath not dealt with us after our sins;
nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.
11 For as the heaven is high above the earth,
so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.
12 As far as the east is from the west,
so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.
13 Like as a father pitieth his children,
so the Lord pitieth them that fear him.
14 For he knoweth our frame;
he remembereth that we are dust.
15 As for man, his days are as grass:
as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth.
16 For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone;
and the place thereof shall know it no more.
17 But the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him,
and his righteousness unto children’s children; Psalms 103:9–17
Believers also need to remember and understand that before anything manifests in the physical realm, it first starts in the spiritual realm. Many believers have been praying for a spiritual revival.Many have been fasting and begging God to heal our land of the wickedness and sexual sin that has plunged it for decades. God seems to be answering though not in the ways that many people expect.
Therefore these are my questions:
- Who is next on the List? I feel just like there is Hierarchy in any any earthly Kingdom, the Kingdom of the devil also has Hierarchy.
- 2. What lead a member of the Kingdom of Satan who has been massively rewarded to be disgraced and made to lose everything?
- Is it when he/her disobeys the devil?
- Is it when the devil gets tired of using him/her?
- Is it when they hear the voice of God to come to Jesus Christ?
