Pop superstar Beyonce caused a media frenzy with the release of her secret self-titled visual album, “Beyonce”. The album which includes a number of images and videos has one video in particular that is deeply disturbing. In the video for her song “Ghost/Haunted”, Beyonce invokes much of the imagery that launched her career into superstardom: over sexuality and occult symbolism. The video is emblematic of much of pop music today as it seeks to lead people away from God and into sinful rebellion.
Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols. And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not. – Revelation 2:20-21.
In Revelation chapter 2, the Lord Jesus Christ delivers a series of messages to seven churches throughout Asia Minor in the 1st century. But the Scriptures make it clear that the message behind each critique applies to Christians of all eras. In the above verses, Jesus references a prophetess named Jezebel had infiltrated the Church, presenting herself as a Godly Christian but in fact seducing members of the church into fornication and spiritual idolatry. While this woman has long since passed away, the spirit that operated in her is still very present in pop culture today. The constant promotion of sexual immorality and the occult have gone hand in hand in entertainment today. And Beyoncé’s new visual album provides perfect examples of this.
The video has not been officially released to YouTube but a 30 second preview of it is below:
The Haunted video is rife with sexual and satanic imagery. As Beyonce enters the hallway of a mansion, the images begin:
The first image is of a TV set showing an all-seeing eye. As we have detailed in past articles, the All-Seeing Eye of Horus, as it is known from Egyptian mythology is one of the most popular occult symbols. This is confirmed in books on the occult:
“The eye plays a most important part in occult symbolism and probably owes its origin in western magical designs to the Eye of Horus, which was one of the most frequently used of Egyptian magical symbols.” (Fredrick Goodman, Magical Symbols p. 101, 1989). (source)
Jesus Christ said: “The light of the body is the eye..” (Matthew 6:22). It is through the eyes that people perceive light and all of the world. It is the way that information, knowledge and wisdom enter the body. When Adam and Eve sinned, the promise made by the Devil was that their “eyes would be opened and they would be as god, knowing good and evil.” And when they ate the fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, which God had forbade, Scripture says: “And the eyes of them both were opened..” The Hebrew phrase for “eyes” in that verse is ayin, which is the singular word for “eye.” So it was a spiritual awakening for Adam and Eve that took place. And that awakening was of their newly formed sinful nature as they rebelled against The Lord for Satan’s false promises. Eve set her eyes on the hidden knowledge the serpent offered and fell.
Jesus’ message about the eye was that we are to be careful not to have our eyes set on the sinful pleasures of the world. Of course Satan knows this and wants to corrupt humanity to the greatest extent possible. and by bombarding the masses with sinful temptation, especially through pop culture, the Devil and his minions have direct access into millions of homes across the world.
In discussing the eye, Jesus Christ made His warning clear:
The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness! No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon [money]. – Matthew 6:22-24
Many pop stars and entertainers have set their eyes on the fame, wealth and glamour of superstardom. And that has set them up to oppose God and promote sinful rebellion. And now instead of heeding God’s Word, they instead promote the All Seeing Eye, which has become an occult symbol for Lucifer and his satanic rebellion against God. Later in the Ghost/Hauntedvideo, another eye image flashes on the screen:
In the next image, a topless model is only covered by upside down 5 pointed stars shaped in the position of Baphomet.
Anton LaVey, founder of the church of Satan explains this symbol:
“The symbol of Baphomet was used by the Knights Templar to represent Satan. Through the ages this symbol has been called by many different names. Among these are: The Goat of Mendes, The Goat of a Thousand Young, The Black Goat, The Judas Goat, and perhaps the most appropriately, The Scapegoat.” (source).
Upon closer inspection, while it appears that the woman was wearing “pasties” to cover herself, it turns out that the Baphomet star images were digitally superimposed:
This would not be the first time Beyonce has used this imagery. As Beginning and End detailed in our article, Nicki Minaj, Beyonce and The Cult of Demon Possession, Beyonce used the satanic imagery on her album cover for I Am..Sasha Fierce.
As detailed in our article, Sasha Fierce was the alter ego and spirit that Beyonce, in her own interviews, claimed possessed her during her performances. Here is one of the clips from the article:
In her own words, Beyoncé describes a spiritual experience of a force taking her over and controlling her body. She refers to “Sasha” in the third person, making it clear that she thinks of her spirit alter ego as a separate entity from herself. Now is the spirit that makes her raunchy and occult-promoting performances a Godly spirit? Of course not. The Bible is clear about the spirit that leads the unsaved: people who do not believe in Jesus Christ for salvation. The Apostle Paul, writing under inspiration of the Holy Spirit, said:
“And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:” –Ephesians 2:1-2.
The lost world is under satanic influence. And the demonic minions of the Devil do his bidding to lead and entice people into further sinful rebellion. And Scripture clearly demonstrates that a demon can take over the body of a person and control their thoughts, words and actions:
And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying: The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation. And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour. – Acts 16:16-18.
The young woman the Apostle Paul encountered was able to tell the future (divination) but was doing so through the demon that possessed her. She was also able to make a great deal of money for her employers and was probably something of a celebrity in the city she lived in (all the while luring her customers into the occult – something the Bible strongly forbids). And notice that when she encountered the Apostles she did not say something negative about them. She called them“servants of the most high God.” This demonstrates the level of deception that can from a demonic spirit. Yet the Apostle Paul knew this was a satanic entity in her and cast it out in the name of Jesus Christ (who all demons are subservient to and fear). Today demonic spirits are influencing the entertainment industry to entice the masses into sinful rebellion against God. All under the guise of “art” or “expression” or just plain good times.
Illuminati Sexual Agenda
“As political and economic freedom diminishes, sexual freedom tends correspondingly to increase. And the dictator will do well to encourage that freedom…it will help to reconcile his subjects to the servitude which is their fate.” — A Brave New World, Aldus Huxley.
For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies: – Matthew 15:19.
As has been the case throughout her career, Beyonce uses lots of graphic sexual imagery in her video for Ghost/Haunted. Through various parts of the video there are topless women, scantily clad women giving lap dances, androgynous models in various states of undress and Beyonce writhing on a table in an extremely suggestive fashion while wearing just underwear beneath her suit jacket.
Whether it is grinding on stage, performing in her underwear or spreading her legs in front of a camera, much of Beyonce’s performances have been marked by raunchy, oversexed imagery. And this was no more apparent than her near X-rated performance at the 2014 Grammy Awards. Wearing a thong and see-through lingerie, a water-drenched Beyonce writhed in a chair in one of the most vulgar, raunchy performances, ever show in the 8:00 PM EST hour on prime time television. Even secular media outlets wrote about the flesh bearing performance in which “Queen Bey” (as she calls herself) exposed her private parts for the millions in the viewing audience.
“Many campaigners claim Beyonce’s performance was inappropriate for children, while others insist a barely-dressed woman dancing with a fully-clothed man promotes inequality among the sexes.
Pippa Smith, of SaferMedia, tells Britain’s Daily Mail newspaper, “There is something rotten at the heart of this so-called ‘music’ industry when young women celebrities and now a husband and wife start to behave in such an obscenely sexual manner at events popular with all ages. They are doing enormous harm to children’s perception of what is normal behaviour.”” (source).
Occult and Freemasonic promoter Jay-Z, who is Beyonce’s husband, joined her midway through the performance. What kind of an example is being set when a man is not only pleased to see his wife acting so overtly sexual for the world, but later joins her on stage to perform with her? What spirit is leading this “power couple”?
The constant bombardment of overt sexuality only works to fill the human mind and heart with thoughts and desire for fornication. This is why Jesus Christ warned about what we take in through our eyes, as they can bring in either light or darkness into our lives. In the case of Jay-Z and Beyonce, it is all about leading society into fornication. Beyoncé’s new “visual album”, in which each song is accompanied by a video, is full of R-rated images of Beyonce wearing lingerie or underwear, constantly in sexual situations.
Jesus Christ said: “Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.” (Matthew 5:27-28).
Jesus Christ said that to even look upon a woman with lust in your heart is to commit adultery, showing how serious sin is present in our lives. And certainly, Beyonce is leading the charge in promoting sexual lust for her as she parades around stage near naked, with lyrics that are X-rated in their promotion of fornication. In her Drunk In Love performance at the Grammys, which had to be censored for its profanity, she unleashed a pure tribute to vulgarity:
We be all night,
And everything alright
No complaints from my body, so fluorescent under these lights
Boy, I’m drinking,
Park it in my lot 7-11
I’m rubbing on it, rub-rubbing, if you scared, call that reverend
Boy, I’m drinking, get my brain right
Armand de brignac, gangster wife
Louie sheets, he sweat it out like wash rags he wear it out
Boy, I’m drinking, I’m singing on the mic to my boy toys
Then I fill the tub up halfway then ride it with my surfboard, surfboard, surfboard
Grinding on that wood, grinding, grinding on that wood
I’m swerving on that, swerving, swerving on that big body
Been serving all this, swerve, surfing all in this good, good (source).
The song is full of vulgar euphemisms for sex. [B&E: And the reason this author posted them unedited is for the parents to realize that millions of millions of elementary school to High School-age children are listening to this music every day in the ear buds and Beats headphones.] The entire Beyonce album is full of this same brand of content, along with videos that are equally explicit. (And Jay-Z’s approval should come as no surprise as he promoted the same type of “career direction” for his protege, Rihanna.) And all of this is promoting a spirit of fornication and adultery in the minds of the fans.
In the book of Proverbs, King Solomon, writing to his son, warns her of the “strange woman”who seeks to lure men into sexual relations outside of marriage:
To deliver thee from the strange woman, even from the stranger which flattereth with her words; Which forsaketh the guide of her youth, and forgetteth the covenant of her God. For her house inclineth unto death, and her paths unto the dead. – Proverbs 2:16-18.
Beyonce, who once claimed to be a Christian, has gone far from that into promotion of the occult and brazen rebellion against God. Responding to questions about her new overtly raunchy approach she responded:
“I don’t at all have any shame about being sexual and I’m not embarrassed about it and I don’t feel like I have to protect that side of me because I do believe that sexuality is a power that we all have.” (source).
This is the message for women today – that sexuality is connected women’s empowerment and equality. When all it really is an excuse and cover for being a bold sinner. The songGhost/Haunted’s chorus repeats:
My wicked tongue
Where will it be?
I know if I’m onto you
I’m on to you
On to you, I’m on to you
On to you, you must be on to me
You want me?
I walk down the hallway
The bedroom’s my runway
I’m pinned to the doorway
Kiss, bite, foreplay
Here is an excerpt from her song “Partition”:
Driver roll up the partition please
I don’t need you seeing yoncé on her knees
Took 45 minutes to get all dressed up
We ain’t even gonna make it to this club
Now my mascara runnin’, red lipstick smudged
Oh he so horny, yeah he want to —-
He popped all my buttons and he ripped my blouse
He Monica Lewinski’d all on my gown
Once again, this music is being played by elementary school aged and teenage children all over the world (and as usual, there are no shortage of parents openly encouraging their children to sing this music as they have posted videos of elementary school age boys, girls and even a two year old baby singing and dancing to Beyoncé’s sexual odes). And the same spirit of Jezebel The Lord warned about now seeks to lure men into fornication and teach women about fornication, sexual deviance and flaunting their bodies as a way to “power.”
Calling Evil Good
And yet despite all of her sinful rebellion, society has elevated Beyonce as a leader, inspiration and role model for girls and young women. Even President Obama said Beyonce “could not be a better role model” for his own daughters. All the while media articles constantly trumpet the hundreds of millions of dollars in wealth Beyonce and Jay-Z have amassed. And thus monetary success now justifies the brazen perverse and sinful behavior of a superstar.
The Bible says: “Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.” (Galatians 5:19-21).
Notice that the first sins that are listed are all related to sexual temptation. And the entertainment industry has provided non-stop sinful temptation as star after star prance around in little to no clothing. Not only does this entice the viewers into lust it is also normalizing this behavior among the youth and young adults. Here is an excerpt from a High School student who is a columnist for the Huffington Post, in which she defends Beyonce as a role mode:
“…Because I, on my own, found qualities that made her a pinnacle for my admiration. Because I know the difference between an entertainer and a person. Because she sings songs and talks of female empowerment — empowerment that radiates as she walks down a stage and leads her all-female band. Because I know that being risqué, and showing some skin, does not constitute what someone’s character is compromised of or banish her from being someone to look up to.
Because the way Beyoncé performs does not equate to girls going into prostitution, as their stories are an amalgam of experiences we cannot equate or place a source to, when we ourselves have never felt it. Because we live in a society where we’re telling girls to adhere to certain restrictions, before teaching young men that there are seals of honor they should never break. Because I know that the same people telling me to be proud of my body and the skin I’m in, tell me to cover it away because the way I appear somehow also constitutes who I am. Trite classifications are outdated.” (source).
In other words, this very eloquent young woman believes that being as raunchy as possible on stage while describing intimacy in the most vulgar fashion is no reflection on a woman’s character. And anyone who would classify someone based on this is “outdated.” This is the deception that Satan wants. Where children are raised with no respect for God, the Bible or morals at all.
Beyonce’s Inspiration: Madonna
It should come as little surprise that Beyoncé’s Haunted video was so sexually-charged when one considers the inspiration: Madonna. Beyonce clearly paid homage to two of 80s pop icon’s videos. In Madonna’s video for the song Erotica, she has a pulled-back hairstyle and men’s tie:
In the Haunted video, Beyonce, with her blonde hair close-cropped (like Madonna’s), wears a men’s suit jacket and tie.
In Madonna’s controversial video, Justify My Love, which was banned by MTV, she walks down the hallway of a mansion in a daze (the image is above). As she passes each room there are scenes of transsexuals, homosexual activity, S&M and numerous graphic sexual scenes. Thus theHaunted video’s source inspiration is clear. Madonna is another superstar artist who has made her career by promoting all manner of sexual and sinful rebellion against the God of the Bible.
Blasphemy Against The Christian Faith
Remember this, that the enemy hath reproached, O LORD, and that the foolish people have blasphemed thy name. – Psalm 74:18.
When a person continues in sinful rebellion with no repentance, it inevitably leads to attacking God and embracing the occult. One example, was the photo above, in which Beyonce, put herself in front of the image of Jesus Christ in a painting of DaVinci’s Last Supper. And in the video forHaunted, that is also on display. Amidst the many bizarre images that flash on the screen briefly, Beyonce was sure to include a mockery of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, as a strange-looking mannequin wears a crown of thorns:
And in Madonna’s video for Justify My Love, there also was a similar mockery. As a bizarre statue that is supposed to depict Jesus’ crucifixion without a cross is shown in the same room where Madonna is engaging in an S&M tryst with several men.
All of these images are to send a message to the viewer: blasphemy is acceptable. Fans should not be concerned about sin, the Bible or God’s wrath and instead just sit back and enjoy the music and Beyoncé’s body on display. The Devil wants the Bible and God to not be taken seriously. And using music and entertainment, which society has such a strong love for, is an easy way to turn the hearts and minds of people away from God and into rebellion. Do not be deceived.
Later in the video another image of some of the guests in the mansion also shows occult influence:
Notice that the man standing has “G.O.D.” on his hat. As Beginning and End detailed in our article on Kanye West and Jay-Z, this has been one of the main spiritual messages of Beyoncé’s husband, Jay-Z – the idea of man becoming god. The same seduction Satan offered to Eve in the Garden of Eden. Thousands of years later, not much has changed.
In the same image above the man on the left is wearing pants with the “KTZ” logo on it. As detailed in our article KTZ: Illuminati Clothing Line To The Stars, this clothing line is full of occult and satanic imagery and its designers were inspired by satanist Aleister Crowley. So again, the intent to bring as much occult imagery into the Haunted video is no mere coincidence.
The director of the video, Jonas Akerlund is known for using occult imagery in his videos and catapulted to superstardom by directing videos for Lady Gaga. Here is a photo of the director:
Even when it came to the prophetess Jezebel, Jesus Christ made it clear that He gave her “space to repent.” God’s desire is for all of humanity’s to open to the real truth: that we are all sinners, in a fallen, sinful world who will be judged by a just and Holy God. A person’s time on Earth is a mere fraction of their spirit’s ultimate destiny after death. And the Illuminati, the spiritual forces that are working against The Lord and His church, are doing their best to distract society into putting all their hope, emphasis and dreams into the present world. Holding up money and fame over everything else, people have attached themselves to celebrities, making them their idols and defending them even in the face of overwhelming evidence.
Jesus Christ said: “If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:31-32). It is the Gospel of Jesus Christ – the free forgiveness of sins and eternal life – that God wants all people to have. But that starts with recognizing our own sin and realizing that God provided a solution by sending Jesus Christ to die on the cross and take the punishment that all people deserve. Rather than mocking the crown of thorns He wore on His head on the day of His crucifixion, people only need to humbly realize that suffering and blood was for them.
If you are a Christian, pray for Beyonce to repent. Pray for her to take on the Holy Spirit of God and not the spirit of Jezebel. And realize that if you turn a blind eye to sinful rebellion and open, blatant disrespect to the Lord Jesus Christ, that you are in error. And if you are not a Christian, consider the state of your soul and the constant emphasis on occult and anti-Christian imagery in pop culture today. It is clearly no coincidence. Then take time to learn and understand the Gospel – the good news of eternal life in Jesus Christ. Lord willing, Beyonce will do the same one day as well.
