Wide Awake: Katy Perry, actions speak louder than words.
I have often been asked or have read posts where Christians are wondering whether Katy Perry is a Christian again after her “Wide Awake” video. A lot of people assume that the video is symbolic of her return to Jesus and away from the sinful and wicked music industry. It’s actually symbolic of monarch mind control, you can read about that here.
Katy and her man-of-the-moment who she has sleepovers with John Mayer, celebrated her birthday this weekend with a Halloween themed birthday party.
Katy who claims to still be a Christian is dressed as a vampire with fangs but wore a big cross and a leotard that had crosses all over them. You can’t dress as a representation of evil and still claim to be a Christian Katy. Her wearing a cross while dressed as a vampire is a mockery of the sacrifice Jesus made for our sins on the cross.
“ No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the other.
In both the Old and New Testaments, God strongly warns us not to have anything to do with the occult, which is part of the “domain of darkness” (Col. 1:13) where demons reign. He calls occult practices “detestable,” which tells us that He is passionate about protecting us. One of the reasons Twilight is so dangerous is that readers can long for these kinds of supernatural but ungodly powers; if not in real life, then in their imagination. And this is a doorway to the demonic, which is all about gaining power from a source other than God. Twilightglorifies the occult, the very thing God calls detestable (Deut. 18:9). This is reason enough for Christ-followers to stay away from it!
Let’s just say for argument’s sake that it was just for fun…okay…well let’s keep in mind that Ms. Katy Perry aka Katherine Hudson, was raised as a Bible believing and knowing Christian. The excuse of “oh she doesn’t know any better” or “she doesn’t know the Bible” can’t apply to her because she was raised as a Pastor’s daughter, in the Word of God. I can’t speak for her parents’ current views on the Bible, but their daughter has certainly turned from the Lord’s Word, Will and Way.
Here’s a photo of Katy laying on her ouija board dance floor at her party. She was raised in such a strict Christian household that she wasn’t even allowed to use words like “luck” because the root word was “lucifer” (Katy Perry in her own words talking about her strict Christian upbringing here).
The modern Ouija board was created in the late 1800s as interest in spiritualism grew. A Ouija board is simply a game board that has the alphabet, numerals, and “yes” and “no” printed on its face. Used in conjunction with a pointer, Ouija boards are believed to allow spirits of the dead to communicate with the living. They are often considered to be communication gateways to those who have “passed over.” Of course, this is all based on the supposition that spirits, or ghosts, even exist in the first place and that they can, or want to, communicate with the world of the living.
The Bible has a few things to say about engaging in activities of this nature:
Leviticus 19:31 - “Do not turn to mediums or seek out spiritists, for you will be defiled by them. I am the LORD your God.”
Deuteronomy 18:10-12 - “Let no one be found among you who sacrifices his son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. Anyone who does these things is detestable to the LORD.”
Isaiah 8:19 - “When men tell you to consult mediums and spiritists, who whisper and mutter, should not a people inquire of their God? Why consult the dead on behalf of the living?”
Galatians 5:19-20 - “The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.”
Occultists will insist that the boards work by allowing spirits of the dead to move the pointer in answer to queries. Scientists have yet to prove that the pointer is moved by anything other than the living people touching the pointer. In fact, spirits of the dead seem to get extremely confused when participants are blindfolded, at which point the Ouija board suddenly ceases to work correctly.
“Playing” with a Ouija board is engaging in occultism and is definitely not an option for a Christian. Such activity is clearly forbidden in the Bible. No matter how innocent it may seem, playing with Ouija boards can be an opening for demons to invade our hearts and minds. All demonic activity is under the control of Satan, whom Peter describes in no uncertain terms: “Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour” (2 Peter 5:8). The scriptural example for dealing with items that pertain to the occult (books, music, jewelry, occult games, and other occult objects) is to confess involvement with them as sin and burn the items—safely, of course (Acts 19:18-19).
Katy Perry is having premarital sex with John Mayer…aka the dude who is infamous for bedding many a hot female celebrity. She recently was seen making the early morning walk of shame with John Mayer leaving his apartment. (Article source HERE).
There is no Hebrew or Greek word used in the Bible that precisely refers to sex before marriage. The Bible undeniably condemns adultery and sexual immorality, but is sex before marriage considered sexually immoral? According to 1 Corinthians 7:2, “yes” is the clear answer: “But since there is so much immorality, each man should have his own wife, and each woman her own husband.” In this verse, Paul states that marriage is the “cure” for sexual immorality. First Corinthians 7:2 is essentially saying that, because people cannot control themselves and so many are having immoral sex outside of marriage, people should get married. Then they can fulfill their passions in a moral way.
Since 1 Corinthians 7:2 clearly includes sex before marriage in the definition of sexual immorality, all of the Bible verses that condemn sexual immorality as being sinful also condemn sex before marriage as sinful. Sex before marriage is included in the biblical definition of sexual immorality. There are numerous Scriptures that declare sex before marriage to be a sin (Acts 15:20; 1 Corinthians 5:1; 6:13, 18; 10:8; 2 Corinthians 12:21; Galatians 5:19; Ephesians 5:3; Colossians 3:5; 1 Thessalonians 4:3; Jude 7). The Bible promotes complete abstinence before marriage. Sex between a husband and his wife is the only form of sexual relations of which God approves (Hebrews 13:4).
Far too often we focus on the “recreation” aspect of sex without recognizing that there is another aspect—procreation. Sex within marriage is pleasurable, and God designed it that way. God wants men and women to enjoy sexual activity within the confines of marriage. Song of Solomon and several other Bible passages (such as Proverbs 5:19) clearly describe the pleasure of sex. However, the couple must understand that God’s intent for sex includes producing children. Thus, for a couple to engage in sex before marriage is doubly wrong—they are enjoying pleasures not intended for them, and they are taking a chance of creating a human life outside of the family structure God intended for every child.
While practicality does not determine right from wrong, if the Bible’s message on sex before marriage were obeyed, there would be far fewer sexually transmitted diseases, far fewer abortions, far fewer unwed mothers and unwanted pregnancies, and far fewer children growing up without both parents in their lives. Abstinence is God’s only policy when it comes to sex before marriage. Abstinence saves lives, protects babies, gives sexual relations the proper value, and, most importantly, honors God.
Katy, where are your Christian fruit? I think she sacrificed that a LONG time ago for the fame that has made her arguably one of the most successful and popular musical acts of our time. Am I condemning her? NO!!! I am not. She is not beyond redemption. She can turn back to Jesus and she knows how to and I pray that she chooses to turn back to Jesus soon!! Don’t believe the hype people. Her song “Wide Awake” was not a symbolism for her return to her Christian roots, it’s more of a symbolism of her being wide awake to the deception she felt she was under when she married her now ex husband Russell Brand.
Katy is knowingly leading people, including Christians astray from the Lord. Her music does NOTHING to glorify the Lord. Songs like “Last Friday Night” glorify partying and drinking and fornicating. How anyone could perceive that as something a good, Bible believing Christian would do, is beyond me.
Look at these photos, look at her music and her actions as of late. Ask yourself, is this something a true, Bible believing Christian would do? She knows the Word, she was raised in it. She knows what the Bible calls us as Christians to do and how we as Christians should live.
What Makes a Christian a Christian?
This is a question that is both very simple and very difficult to answer. According to the Bible, there is only one thing that makes a person a Christian, and that is faith in Jesus Christ. But what does that mean? Does it mean just saying “I believe” or praying a prayer? Or is there more to it?
The book of Romans goes step by step through what salvation means. The beginning chapters talk about sin, and the penalty for sin (death, hell) and the fact that everyone is sinful. Chapters 4 and 5 talk about how we are justified by faith alone, and how salvation (getting to heaven) is NOT a result of our works, or our good deeds, but it is based on God’s power to save us. It also mentions the Law (all of God’s rules for our lives) and how the purpose of the law was to show us that we cannot follow the law, and that we are all sinful. Why would God go to such lengths to prove how sinful we are?
Let’s say you had a deadly disease that had no symptoms but would suddenly kill you 6 months from now. During your regular checkup, your family physician (a brilliant man) realizes that you are suffering from this insidious illness. He knows that the news will upset you but he also knows that he has a cure for your illness. Now, it wouldn’t make any sense to tell you about the cure without first telling you about the illness. In the same way, God created the law to show us our sin so that we would realize the danger we are in and believe in Christ for our salvation.
Jesus takes the punishment for our sins. In the Old Testament, the Law was given and a sacrifice was provided. In the New Testament, the Law was upheld, clarified / expanded by Jesus in the Sermon on the Mount, and then fulfilled. Those that believe that this fulfillment of the Law is applied by God’s grace, through faith, to their own lives and to the debt of sin they owe are called Christians.
Now what? Romans 6 and 7 get deeper into the reality of what a Christian is.
A mysterious thing happens when a person becomes a Christian. Something dies and is replaced with something else. We are still ourselves, walking, talking, going to work, feeding our pets. But something intimately connected with our being has been lost. Look at Galatians 2:20.
“I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.”
So, something called “I” has been crucified with Christ, but we are still living a life here on earth, by faith in Him. Where did that crucified part of us go?
“For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, is revealed, then you also will be revealed with Him in glory.” Colossians 3:3-4
The part of us that dies is what we refer to as “the old man”. And in Romans Chapter 7, Paul tells us about the reality of our life now, as Christians. A battle is going on in us all the time. You see, the “old self” and the body (he calls it the flesh) were really good friends, and when the “old self” was crucified with Christ (by faith), a “new man” arrived (this is the life we now live in the flesh, by faith). God calls this being “born again” (John 3) or becoming a “new creation” (2 Corinthians 5:17). But this “new man” and the flesh do not get along. They are always at war. The flesh wants to sin. But the new man wants to please God. So, we have this conflict inside us. This is totally normal for a Christian – if you read Romans chapter 7 you will see how even Paul struggled with it.
We can win the spiritual battles we fight by “walking in the Spirit” (Gal. 5:16). Walking in the Spirit means we follow Him, and we are submissive to Him as He works to change us into His image. We say “You are right, I am wrong.” We agree with what the Bible says about us and about life. We pray, we ask for guidance. What we don’t do is try to be better people by sheer force of will. Of course, as Christians, we want to be better people – we want to be like Christ. But we also know we can’t do it. So we ask Him to change us by His Spirit.
Now, all that said, what makes a Christian a Christian?
A Christian sees and acknowledges the existence of God and His right to rule.
A Christian is convicted by the words of the Bible and will see that they can never live up to the standard God has put in place.
A Christian accepts the reality that their deeds deserve death, and that without God’s intervention, they will be lost eternally.
A Christian takes great joy in the fact that Jesus Christ has taken the punishment for sin and has opened their way to Heaven.
A Christian believes that Jesus’ sacrificial death applies personally and completely to their debt of sin. A Christians obeys the Lord – not out of a desire to save themselves, because that has been done on the cross – but because the “new self” desires to obey.
A Christian will have peace in doing what’s right – following Him, even when it hurts.
A Christian is not a person that does everything right all the time, but a person who desires what God desires.
A Christian is not a person that wins every battle against sin, but one that keeps on fighting.
Luke 14:26 says “If anyone comes to me and does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be my disciple.” This may sound harsh, but what Jesus means by “hate” is that following Him must be absolutely FIRST in your life – even if it means turning away from your family. This is very sad when it happens, but it is a good example of the absolute devotion that a true Christian has to Jesus Christ.
If you realize that you don’t feel that kind of devotion to Him, don’t stress out about it. Just ask Him to change your heart so that you are devoted to Him. What’s so great about God is that He will give us anything and everything we need to do His will, to obey Him, and to love Him (John 14:14). We tend to ask for things like health or wealth or success, but the true treasures are things that help us fight the battle (faith, salvation, righteousness, truth (Ephesians 6)) and the fruit of the Spirit (love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, gentleness, goodness and self-control (Galatians 5)).
I do not hate Katy, in fact she is in my prayers every single day. What I dislike is how so many people are being led astray by her and how so many parents assume that allowing their children to listen to her music is safe because she was raised as a Christian. I can say that I’m an Olympic athlete, doesn’t mean that it’s the truth. Anyone can claim to be anything they want but ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER than words.
A Tree and Its Fruit
15 “Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves.16 You will [k]know them by their fruits. [l]Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they?17 So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit.18 A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit.19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.20 So then, you will [m]know themby their fruits.
21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter.22 Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many [n]miracles?’23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.’
Do not be deceived. Jesus is the ONLY way to Salvation!! Katy is not out of God’s reach but He won’t force Himself on her. I pray that she turns from this life of fame, money and evil and back to Jesus.
1 Timothy 6:3-21
3 If anyone advocates a different doctrine and does not [d]agree with sound words, those of our Lord Jesus Christ, and with the doctrine conforming to godliness,4 he is conceited and understands nothing; but he [e]has a morbid interest in controversial questions and disputes about words, out of which arise envy, strife, abusive language, evil suspicions,5 and constant friction between men of depraved mind and deprived of the truth, who suppose that [f]godliness is a means of gain.6 But godliness actually is a means of great gain when accompanied by contentment.7 For we have brought nothing into the world, so we cannot take anything out of it either.8 If we have food and covering, with these we shall be content.9 But those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a snare and many foolish and harmful desires which plunge men into ruin and destruction. 10 For the love of money is a root of all [g]sorts of evil, and some by longing for it have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.
11 But flee from these things, you man of God, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, [h]perseverance and gentleness.12 Fight the good fight of faith; take hold of the eternal life to which you were called, and you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.13 I charge you in the presence of God, who [i]gives life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who testified the good confession before Pontius Pilate,14 that you keep the commandment without stain or reproach until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ,15 which He will[j]bring about at the proper time—He who is the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of [k]kings and Lord of [l]lords,16 who alone possesses immortality and dwells in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see. To Him be honor and eternal dominion! Amen.
17 Instruct those who are rich in this present world not to be conceited or to fix their hope on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly supplies us with all things to enjoy.18 Instruct them to do good, to be rich in good [m]works, to be generous and ready to share,19 storing up for themselves the treasure of a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of that which is life indeed.
20 O Timothy, guard what has been entrusted to you, avoiding worldly and empty chatter and the opposing arguments of what is falsely called “knowledge”—21 which some have professed and thus gone astray[n]from the faith.
Grace be with you.
Don’t hate those who are in the world and living a sinful life, instead love them and pray for them that the Lord Jesus reveal Himself to them and that they accept Him and repent and turn away from sins so that their souls will be saved.
