Sermon 6: The Occult and Popular Culture
By Rev. William H. Grimes
Genesis 3:1-8 "Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:
3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:
5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.
7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.
8 And they heard the voice of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God amongst the trees of the garden."
We're starting in Genesis 3, because the serpent is a symbol of Satan. Popular culture's version of music is Satanic because it contains an addictive beat, secularized themes, and explicit references to the occult. Bro. James brought to my attention the music video for "Look What You Made Me Do" by Taylor Swift, and there includes a heavy imagery of Satanic slithering serpentry. It is not unreasonable to assume that this woman is Satan incarnate due to these sorts of association. The video also contains a number of various references to Satan including necromancy, greed, lust, and the glorification of the lust of the flesh and the BDSM lifestyle. Swift wore typical BDSM related attire with a large amount of breast and leg showing! 1 Timothy 2:9 says "In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;" THIS MEANS THAT THE FLAGRANT DISPLAY OF THE FLESH IS WHOLLY UNACCEPTABLE, AS IS THE WEARING OF JEWELERY AND MAKEUP! NO ADORNMENTS! PLAIN DRESS ONLY! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! HALLELUJAH!
This wicked woman is indeed mocking us, because on her website right now there are gold and silver plated rings that represent the serpent seen in Genesis 3, possibly another incarnation of Swift herself. Keep your kids away from this wicked woman at all costs. She tried to be a wolf in sheep's clothing by feigning innocence and purity and a relatibility to those girls having everyday struggles in high school. IT WAS HOGWASH! SHE HAS REVEALED TO US THAT SHE IS NOTHING MORE THAN A CHARLATAN WHO IS NOW REVEALING HER TRUE DEATH OBSESSED OCCULTISH SELF, SHE HAS WORSHIPED OTHER GODS, AND NOW TEENAGE GIRLS ARE WORSHIPING THE FALSE GOD OF TAYLOR SWIFT! LEVITICUS 26:1 SAYS "Ye shall make you no idols nor graven image, neither rear you up a standing image, neither shall ye set up any image of stone in your land, to bow down unto it: for I am the LORD your God." SO NO ALLAH, NO BUDDHA, NO TAYLOR SWIFT! ONLY JESUS CHRIST DIED FOR YOUR SINS ON THE CROSS! THESE FALSE IDOLS ARE ABOMINATIONS UNTO THE LORD JESUS CHRIST! God's people said AMEN!
