End Time Music Now Music has always been an outlet for artists to express themselves and a way to reach the masses. Music is defined as, “An art of sound in time that expresses ideas and emotions in significant forms through the elements of rhythm, melody, harmony, and color.” It has a way of touching people from various backgrounds, ethnicities, and religions on an intensely deep emotional level. It is rare to find one who does not have a favorite song or at least a few that they know they can relate to, or that play when they are happy or sad. According to Ezekiel 28:14, before Satan’s banishment from Heaven, he was the director of music, therefore if anyone is to know anything regarding music it would be Lucifer himself. Soon after, he devised a strategy for revenge against God to use secular music as a tool to persuade those of “the world,” as Christians would call them, to follow him. His strategy was lived out through the influence of the Illuminati. Illuminati, means “Enlightenment” and their god is Lucifer, also known as, “The Light Bearer.” Their goals are to create a new world order and manipulate and influence the masses by occult practices. They are said to be, “the Top players on the International playground belonging to thirteen of the wealthiest families in the world,” this is including the Rockefeller’s and the Kennedy’s (Tapestra). Many Biblical texts in and outside of Revelation relate to Satan’s plan to conform the music industry for his work. In Genesis it discusses how Satan wanted to open Adam and Eve’s eyes. The “All-Seeing Eye” is one of the symbols for the Illuminati. Amos 6:5 5-7 states that men will sing a “Trivial nothing about the ruin of [their] nation...will be the first to be led away as captives.” Revelations discusses how men will give power to the beast and they will worship him, their mouths will blaspheme against God, and they will be forced to receive marks on their forehead or right hand marked 666 (Benware). The number “666” is also a symbol of the Illuminati and the name of a group that was popular several years ago, “The Three 6 Mafia.” Many artists, generally hip-hop and pop artists, conform to the Illuminati lifestyle. Jay-Z, Rihanna, Kayne West, Lil Wayne, Eminem, and Lady Gaga are just a few of the many artists whose lyrics and videos depict Apocalyptic themes. Their lyrics talk about the end of the world and blaspheme God and Jesus, while their videos tend to be dark, warlike, violent, and desolate.
Jay-Z, in particular, has a symbol in the shape of a triangle that he always portrays at concerts and in videos that relates to the Illuminati symbol of the “All-Seeing Eye” inside of the triangle on the dollar bill. He also has a clothing line called, “Rock-A-Fella,” similar to the Rockefeller’s who are said to be apart of the Illuminati. “End Time Music” is accepted and listened to widely. Many people are either ignorant to or ignore the Illuminatic symbols and Apocalyptic themes. Yet, regardless of how people take to this music, the motifs are prevalent and are successfully reaching the masses, as intended.
