“Be not deceived with the first appearance of things, for show is not substance.”
Somehow, and I know not how, in Hollywood, they put up these fallen demoralized and debased reprobates as some sort of standard bearers (Romans 1:24) of moral guidance. They take it so far as to honor the fallen with a star on the sidewalk, suggesting that there is some sort of honor instead of shame obtained when their names are written upon one of them. (Luke 16:15)
“And He said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from Heaven.” (Luke 10:18)
The stars in Hollywood, located on the sidewalks, represent a fallen star. Fallen stars in the Bible represent Satan and those angels who sided with him in rebellion against the God of Israel (Isaiah 14:11-12; Revelation 9:1).
Keep in mind, during the turn of the century, Hollywood was originally the location where land was given away freely to congregations that were willing to erect their Churches. Also, up until 1968, it was the Church’s obligation to vet all movies before being released to the populace in America. How far has the Church fallen from their duties before God!
Friends, Hollywood is the place where the occult is magnified and honored, where witches and warlocks are, through desensitization normalized and where the fallen angels congregate, and the ideologies and manifestations of demons are given life and brought into the mainstream. And yet, somehow, Hollywood and its fallen stars have become some standard for people go to and to emulate? (Revelation 21:8)
One star, in particular, that I couldn’t help but notice was that of Billy Graham. Yes, I said Billy Graham, the ecumenical preacher, the evangelical pope as they called him when living (Luke 24:7).
Why would Billy Graham have a Hollywood star? Why would the world love Billy Graham in such a fashion? Pedophiles, homosexuals, child murderers, cult leaders and advocates of every form of evil are praising Billy Graham and yet, Jesus Christ was hated (As were His disciples-11 of the 12 were martyred), how does this make Biblical sense? Jesus Christ was rejected and crucified, but somehow Billy Graham is accepted and praised by the world? (Psalm 109:4-5; John 7:7) The only explanation must be a totally different Gospel being preached than that which was preached by Christ Himself. There is no other reasonable explanation.
The message was and is “Repent ye: for the kingdom of Heaven is at hand” (Matthew 3:2).
The message was not God loves you and has a wonderful plan for your life, like that of Billy Graham.
Remember Jesus said,
“If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you” (John 15: 18).
Or what of Luke 6:26?
“Woe unto you, when all men speak well of you! For so did their fathers to the false prophets.”
Quite telling, is it not?
Hollywood and its fallen stars have nothing to offer but that which God condemns in so many different ways. Look to the Hell that they themselves have helped to create (Psalm 9:17). It is a spirit of anti-Christ (1 John 4:1-4) at work to deceive the people into the ways of deception and at length death and hell (Proverbs 14:12).
The Bible clearly tells us to “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth forever” (1 John 2:15-17).
So, tell me, why then would Hollywood and the world be loving Billy Graham so much so as to honor him with a Hollywood star?
