Two years ago this month a famous singer died at the age of 27, Amy Winehouse.  I asked the question: Does it seem unusual to you that 43 famous Rock Stars would all die at the age of 27?   Is this a coincidence or is something sinister happening?  Do you have an inquiring mind?

On July 11, 2011 I wrote:  “Are some people evil”?  I told a story that was read to my 5th grade class when I was in grade school many, many years ago.  This was when you could still pray and read the Bible in school.  Our teacher read us a short-story called “The Devil and Daniel Webster”.  The story took place in New England and a farmer was having some very bad luck with his crops and farming in general.  He said it was so bad that he was willing to sell his soul to the devil for better times.  The next day, farmer Stone was visited by a stranger who identified himself as Mr. Scratch.  Mr. Scratch said if you are serious about selling your soul I will give you seven very prosperous years.  They made a binding contract and farmer Stone had seven of the very best years ever.

After seven years he begged Mr. Scratch to give him just three more years.  Again they made a contract and farmer Stone had another three prosperous years.  However, farmer Stone no longer wanted to be controlled every minute by the devil and wanted out of his contract.  He hired an attorney, Mr. Daniel Webster to take Mr. Scratch to court and force the contract to be broken.

The trial is really suspenseful and Daniel Webster won and the devil had to give farmer Stone back his soul.  Ever since, I was left believing that some politicians, business people, movie stars and others in general, may have sold their souls to the devil for prosperity, power, fame, etc.  If this is true, I wonder how many people would be willing to sell their souls and have.

I previously wrote that it is very rare, if ever, for a person who had sold their soul to break the contract.  It is possible they allowed themselves to become possessed, deceived or driven to gain the lime-light and did so not knowing the consequence.  What would cause a superstar, a politician or anyone, receiving everything they could have ever dreamed of accomplishing, begin this very self-destructive behavior leading to eventual death?   Could Amy Winehouse have been offered a seven year contract at age 20 when they were too young to realize the consequences?

Ephesians 6:12 – “For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.”   NLT

I realize that the majority of people reading this article would not believe anything written to be authentic.  Most would not even believe there are evil powers seeking to control people’s lives and behavior.  But if there is the slightest chance what happened to Amy Winehouse was a result of making a contract to become famous or in power, would you make the same contract?  The Bible was written that we might have true joy, happiness and love in our hearts.  Satan is the world’s greatest deceiver, so do not allow yourself to be sold a bill of goods for a few years of wealth or power or notoriety.

As I watch the evening news and read my newspapers I am beginning to wonder.  How many of our politicians may have sold their soul to the devil in order to have the power that comes with it?

Matthew 4:8 & 9 – “Again, the devil took him (Christ) to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor.  “All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.”  Scripture implies that Satan was able to do what he offered to give Christ.  It made me question: “Do we have politicians that would accept that position in a minute?”  I suppose there would be some that would fall to their knees and begin worshipping Satan instantaneously.  (Are you still with me?  Is this too difficult to accept?)

Are governments around the world being led by Satan to establish a one-world government to be ruled by the Antichrist?  Isn’t this what the Bible teaches?  Read prophecy and then see the signs that are happening.  When you see a peace treaty between Israel and Palestine the Bible says the end of time is near.  Upon completing of the Jewish temple being erected, it is just months away.  So why is our president and the United Nations trying so desperately to have a treaty?  Are they being led by Satan?  Surely, they have not read or accepted Bible prophecy knowing the results of a peace treaty.

Let us assume that no politician has sold their soul to the devil.  Isn’t it still possible that they can be deceived by Satan?  Can’t most Christians who believe in the accuracy of the Bible and have studied it, see the signs predicting the end-time?  A world government could not function properly without the Internet.  Technology and the RFID chip must be available to keep track of its people.  To have a one-world currency you have to buy and sell electronically to be monitored.  There will no longer be any hard cash or a black market.  You must be willing to do away with all nations borders.  Or at least, be willing to do as the European Union has done and combine their countries.

Matthew 24:24 – “For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.”

Have you heard any false prophets lately?  I have heard of a politician who left offices with a net worth of about $2 million who is now worth over $500 million.  From the time he left office he has been predicting unbelievable events and has convinced many followers.  The more people he convinces the richer he gets.  You might understand why Satan does not want anyone thinking God would cause global warming.  He tries to deceive those into believing there is no God.  Yet, God says He will cause the earth to heat up.  Prophecy also says earthquakes will become more frequent plus there will periods of draught and flooding.  Satan does not want anyone to believe what is being caused is what the Bible predicted would happen as we draw nearer to the end of this age.

Revelation 16:8 – “The fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and the sun was allowed to scorch people with fire.  They were seared by the intense heat and they cursed the name of God, who had control over these plagues, but they refused to repent and glorify him.”

When life is over and many have accumulated great wealth or notoriety; how many will be able to use it in the after-life?  Life is a great gamble:  If you believe there is a God you probably will not bow down and worship Satan.  However, there are many that would rather have instant gratification and not believe there is a Heaven or a Hell.  Are you willing to make a deal with the devil?  Are there some politicians who have?

“But for me and my house we will serve the Lord!”

  1. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I
    find this matter to be really something which I think I
    would never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for
    me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to
    get the hang of it!
