STEVIE WONDER SINGS… JOHN LENNON’S “IMAGINE”…AT GLOBAL CITIZEN FESTIVAL: GOD RESPONDS… “IMAGINING THAT I DON’T EXIST = IMAGINING THAT YOU DON’T EXIST.”

My people perish for lack of knowledge.” (Hosea 4:6)  Not my words…   But, those spoken to us by the Heavenly Father.  Why???  Because every day…it seems that He is in a constant battle with us…to save us from ourselves.   This “world” seems to think that they know better than He does…about anything…about everything.   In truth…  The “world” has it completely upside down.  COMPLETELY UPSIDE DOWN!!!  How can the creation know better than the creator???  You tell me..  What can a man teach to the being…who created the stars???  What can a man teach to the being…who created the universe??? What can a man teach to the being who…CREATED man???  Nothing…   All man SHOULD say is… “I love you & I worship you.”   But, you see there is a dilemma.  What dilemma???  The dilemma of man…wanting to be God…instead of being…like God.   Many want to replace Him.  Why???  They want to rule over other men.  They want to possess & dominate us.  They want us to worship them…instead of us worshiping God.  So…

How does this play itself out???  Saturday night…I watched a part of the Global Citizen Festival that was happening in Central Park in New York City.    The Global Citizen Festival is a mix between celebration for the hard work that people do to assist their fellow man over the globe…& a reminder of the work still needs to be done.  O.k.…  The celebration part included entertainers singing to a crowd of approximately 60,000 people.   These 60,000 people were attending a free live concert in Central Park as a kind of thank you for the volunteer work they have done.     O.k…

I caught the tail end of the concert & I watched Stevie Wonder sing John Lennon’s song… “Imagine.”   The crowd swayed…dreamily…as he sang.  At the end of the concert, MSNBC hosts/correspondents stated what each thought was the hi-light of the concert.   Jacob Soboroff  said … “I still have the chills listening to Stevie Wonder just now sing “Imagine”…in Central Park…knowing just the legacy…the history…the importance of that song…and the fact that John Lennon was just right around the corner.”  Joy-Ann Reid, MSNBC host of AM Joy, stated… “I’m mad at Jacob Soboroff because he stole mine.  Mine was gonna be. That was mine.  Because you know that’s one of the most subversive songs ever written.  If you think about it.  It’s so simple and seems so positive but the sentiments in “imagine” are really some of the most subversive in American culture right now…given all that we are dealing with.  Stevie Wonder singing that…my hi-light.”  The swaying crowd and MSNBC hosts/correspondents seemed to have been caught up in the moment…of John Lennon’s dream.  A dream that is spelled out in the words of his song.   Let’s see for ourselves…

IMAGINE” in part…says:

Imagine there’s no heaven…                                                                                                No hell below us…
I hope some day you’ll join us…
And the world will be as one…

But, what the swaying crowd may not have realized as they listened to “imagine” is that God views that song as…SATANIC.   It is for the reason…that John Lennon wants me to imagine that Heaven doesn’t exist…that God views it…as Satanic.   It is for the reason… that John Lennon wants me to imagine that Hell doesn’t exist…that God views the song…as Satanic.   Why???  Because to imagine that Heaven & Hell…doesn’t exist…is to imagine that God DOES NOT EXIST.  What is more EVIL…more SATANIC…then, pretending that God IS NOT??? What is more EVIL…more SATANIC…then, trying to convince others to pretend that God IS NOT???  O.K…

Why in the hell would I want imagine that the greatest…the most beautiful being that ever has or ever will EXIST…does not???  Why in the hell would I want to imagine that my CREATOR…is not???  You see…   The fact that Heaven and Hell DO EXIST…tells me that John Lennon’s “imagining” that they don’t…is purely for man’s pleasure…alone.  A pleasure that would allow man to believe that God does not need to exist in order for man to “be as one”… to “love one another.”  A pleasure that would allow man to believe he could live any “God forsaken” way he pleases without condemnation…without retribution…from God.  But…

This type of imagined pleasure only comes from the “flesh” side of man.  The “flesh” side that is the complete opposite…from the “spirit” side of man.    Our “spirit” side is the God side of man.   For God tells of this… “16 Live by the Spirit, I say, and do not gratify the desires of the flesh. 17 For what the flesh desires is opposed to the Spirit, and what the Spirit desires is opposed to the flesh; for these are opposed to each other, to prevent you from doing what you want.19 Now the works of the flesh are obvious: fornication, impurity, licentiousness, 20 idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, anger, quarrels, dissensions, factions, 21 envy,[e]drunkenness, carousing, and things like these. I am warning you, as I warned you before: those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.” (Galatians 5:16-21)

Now…  What is also very troublesome is the fact that Stevie Wonder chose to sing this…particular song.   Why would he choose to uplift a song that is Satanic???  Does he not know the true meaning & message of the song???   And, if he does not know…why does he not know???   And, more tragic is this possibility…  He knows & still…chose it??? For…   He sang it as an anthem…which is suppose to show us the way… “to be as one.”  The way…which is suppose to show us the way… “to love each other.”   But, you see…   The fallacy of this is this…  There is no way in hell for us to… “be as one” …without God.  There is no way in hell for us to love one another… “without God.”   It is only through God’s existence that we…EXIST.  Without God…there is no breath…for us to breathe.  For, it is only because His breath…is breathed into us…that we live.  Genesis 2:7 states… “… then the Lord God formed man from the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and the man became a living being.”    And…   It is only through God’s existence that love…even…EXIST.   Why???  Because God = Love.  1 John 4:8 tells us… “Whoever does not love does not know God, for God is love.”  You see…  Without God, LOVE…ceases to EXIST.   Not my words…but, those of the Heavenly Father.   Not my words…but, those of Jesus.    So…

Why do we push forward such SATANIC things…that offend God???  I’ll tell you.   Man has a tendency to act & react from man’s perspective…instead of God’s perspective.  It goes back to what I told you earlier.  Man…wants to be God…instead of being Godlike.  Man…wants to be the CREATOR…instead, of accepting his place…as the creation.   A creation that was created to serve the purposes of the CREATOR.  Nothing more…  Nothing less…    But, John Lennon did not seem to accept this.  In an interview published in 1966, as part of the “The Beatles,” he was quoted as saying…  “Christianity will go. It will vanish and shrink. I needn’t argue about that; I know I’m right and I will be proved right. We’re more popular than Jesus now. I don’t know which will go first – rock & roll or Christianity. Jesus was all right, but his disciples were thick and ordinary. It’s them twisting it that ruins it for me.”  I’ll just say this…  God, does not take well to people…MOCKING…Him.   God, does not take well to people putting themselves…ABOVE Him.   Jesus says…  24 A disciple is not above the teacher, nor a slave above the master; 25 it is enough for the disciple to be like the teacher, and the slave like the master.”  (Matthew 10: 24-25)

Well…   Let me tell you what I don’t just imagine…but, what I pray for.   I “pray” that God’s children come into the knowledge of what is true.   I “pray” that God’s children come to understand that God is more real than any other being that exist.  I “pray” that God’s children come to understand that God is our creator and that we were created to serve His purposes…alone.   I “pray” that God’s children come to understand that Heaven & Hell do EXIST and understand that we all will end up in one place…or…the other.   I “pray” that God’s children wake-up & come into a proper relationship with our Heavenly Father so they do not end up in Hell.
