Whitney Houston, Dionne Warwick, the Christian Church, and the Magical Connection

“Any black entertainer, who is of any consequence today, primarily started in the churches.”  —Dionne Warwick 

Grace and peace, believers and unbelievers alike.

As many of you know, I contend that Whitney Houston was murdered by the forces of darkness of which, she too, was a part.  I also contend that, not only was her death planned, but her birth also, as there are absolutely too many numerological coincidences in both.  As I said, I believe this so strongly, that I won’t even bother researching it.

Understand that the celebrities and the occult should not be a concern of the Christian church.  The purpose of our coverage of Whitney Houston’s murder was neither to sensationalize the occult elements of her death, nor to draw attention to the problems in this poor lady’s life.  But the occult has become a major part of daily American life largely due to the efforts of celebrities and their influence has extended to the Christian church. This is because many celebrities—especially black celebrities—claim to be Christians, many even having started in the Christian church.  And they have used their influence to deceive the Body of Christ.  Through their music and popularity, they have helped to bring worldly music and occultism into the Christian church.

That was our purpose for covering the Whitney Houston murder: to show not only that she was involved in the occult, but to show that her family and associates are also involved—as indeed, virtually all celebrities are, in some way and to some extent.  We should, therefore, not be deceived when we see them smiling and being seemingly wholesome and down-to-earth on interviews and awards shows.  That is all part of the deception.

Whitney Houston was no exception.  While professing to be a Christian, she lived as anything but.  And though she was certainly the victim in her murder, there is no discounting that the many young girls who were deceived into thinking that Whitney was the epitome of young black American female wholesomeness were also victims.  Whitney Houston contributed to the destruction of black female morals.  Make no mistake about it.

Look at the lyrics and themes in many of the songs that made Whitney Houston a household name.  They are not wholesome.  You may find it interesting, for example, that “The Greatest Love of All” made popular by Whitney, is actually Antichrist.  Click here to learn how.  Even a cursory examination of the roles she played in her movies reveals an even more disturbing trend.

What role did Whitney play in “Waiting to Exhale?”  A single, independent, and successful black woman having an affair with a married man.  What role did she play in “The Bodyguard?”  A single, independent, and successful black pop diva who has an affair with her white bodyguard.  In “The Preacher’s Wife,” she played a married woman, but she almost carries on an affair with an angel.  What blasphemy!

Do you see a pattern here?  Affairs are the central element in almost every role Whitney played.  And we wonder why there are so many problems between black men and women. We wonder why there is such a problem with promiscuity, teen pregnancy, and AIDS among young black women—even the successful ones.  We wonder why most black women these days want to be single, independent, and successful and not marry and start a family.  They had a lot of help.  Our celebrity heroes have largely contributed to the compromising of black morals and the destruction of the black family.

How did this happen?  Celebrities like Whitney Houston (RIP) came in under the radar clothed in sheepskin.  Why didn’t we see it?  Because we were literally mesmerized. We were hypnotized.  You did know that Hollywood practices witchcraft didn’t you?  Why of course you did.

Thanks to YouTube and the internet, celebrity involvement in the occult is all but common knowledge to the average, unbelieving citizen, but the Christian church has yet to wake up to this fact.  We tend to believe that a celebrity can go to church on Sunday and live like the devil Monday through Saturday.  All they have to do is give thanks to God when they accept an award, give props to Jesus now and then, and wear a cross around their neck, and we believe they are Christian.  Never mind that the fruit they bear is anything but Christian.

Understand that the dark occult forces of the world are actively working to destroy the Christian church and morality, and Hollywood and the entertainment industry play a major role.  These people are the enemies of Jesus Christ.  Therefore, the only association we should have with celebrities is to pray for them and, if possible, witness to them.  We should not ask them for their autograph, buy or listen to their music, watch their movies, or buy their books.  Our doing so not only sends the wrong message to the unbelieving world, but it sends the wrong message to our children.

But I digress.  What I wanted to say today is that since the Whitney Houston murder, I have contemplated the role of occult family connections.  When I was writing the piece on Whitney, it seemed to me that I had heard somewhere that Dionne Warwick, Whitney’s cousin, was involved in some form of witchcraft.  But I couldn’t remember what I had heard or where I had heard it.

Then, this morning while I was making coffee, it hit me:  Dionne Warwick used to be involved with the Psychic Friends Network.  I googled “Dionne Warwick Psychic Friends” and was taken to a link for the following YouTube video of Miss Warwick pitching the Psychic Friends Network.

Understand that psychic phenomena like ESP, telepathy, fortune-telling, and the like are witchcraft, according to the Bible.  So this is proof positive that Dionne Warwick was involved in witchcraft.  Intrigued, I went to Wikipedia for some quick information on Dionne Warwick, and was surprised at what I found.

I saw that, like Whitney Houston, Dionne Warwick also came from a so-called Christian background having sung in the same gospel group with Houston’s mother, Cissy, called the Gospelaires.  But the similarities didn’t end there.  The themes of some of Warwick’s songs were also very telling, and have their counterpart in societal ills.  For instance, in 1982, Warwick released a duet with Johnny Mathis entitled “Friends In Love” from the album by the same name.  Sounds innocent enough, doesn’t it?  After all, many married couples began as friends.

But in 1993 Warwick released an album entitled “Friends Can Be Lovers.”  This title carries a less innocent connotation.  My question to you is this: is the theme of a man and a woman who are supposed to be friends, but who also enjoy a sexual relationship a Christian one?  Have you noticed that there have been a recent spate of music and movies (such as “Friends With Benefits”) that echo this motif?

It is no secret that Satan hates anything that God loves, and God loves marriage.  So Satan destroys the sanctity of marriage by offering people everything that marriage has to offer without the commitment.  And it is working.  Increasingly, couples are deciding to stay friends instead of getting married, and to enjoy all the benefits of marriage without the sacrifices.  A perfect recipe for disaster.  The problem is that “Christians” are falling for this deception, having been beguiled into this lifestyle by those whom the media promote as the perfect blend of Christian wholesomeness and worldliness.

Another thing Warwick has in common with Whitney Houston is drugs.  Only Dionne’s troubles weren’t as ostensibly serious or as highly publicized as Whitney’s.

A 61-year-old Christian pop singer who also smokes dope.  Christian right?

Additionally, Dionne Warwick had some interesting romantic entanglements.   This from Wikipedia:

“Warwick has been connected romantically with Philadelphia Eagles great Timmy Brown, French singer-songwriter Sacha Distel, actor Philip Michael Thomas (Miami Vice), Seagram heir and CEO Edgar Bronfman, Jr., and Las Vegas restaurateur and actor Gianni Russo (The Godfather).”

According to Wikipedia, Philip Michael Thomas of Miami Vice fame, like Dionne Warwick, was involved in a psychic network called the Psychic Reader’s Network (later known as Traffix, Inc.) and become the spokesman for the Philip Michael Thomas Psychic Connection.  Do not for one minute believe that this occult connection was purely coincidental.

I was totally unaware that Warwick had been involved with Seagram heir Edgar Bronfman Jr., the grandson of Samuel Bronfman, of the fabulously wealthy Canadian Jewish Bronfman family.  This is a very intriguing connection indeed, for the Bronfmans made their fortune peddling bootleg liquor during the Prohibition era, according to the book, Dope Inc.  The book also states that the Bronfmans have connections to organized crime in Canada and in the United States.  

Interestingly, Warwick is not the only black female Edgar has been involved with, and through one of his relationships, Bronfman has had an influence on black public education in the United States.

One website on Warwick former romantic interest and NFL great, Timmy Brown, included some of his stats.  When I looked them over, I was amazed by the numerological “coincidences.”  I noticed all the 9’s, 11’s, 13’s, 18’s, 22’s, 27’s, 29’s, and 33’s that kept popping up, not only in his birthdate and player stats, but on the birth dates and information of many of the football players listed on the webpage.  Because of this, something told me to go to YouTube and check out some footage of some of Brown’s games.  In one game, I was amazed as, repeatedly, the defensive linemen seemed to make no real effort to sack the quarterback as he completed pass after pass to Brown.

Once again, I was convinced that nothing is a coincidence: right down to a famous football player’s career.  I went away more convinced than ever that careers in entertainment (and sports are entertainment) are not only made and ended, but are meticulously managed: right down to an athlete’s stats.  Famous athletes’ careers are managed just as famous singers’ and actors’ careers are managed.  They are managed with a purpose, and their fame is not coincidental.  It has been given to them by Satan, and it is to be used for his ends.  If you look closely at the lives of celebrities, you will see Satan glorified in them.

That is what we must consider when we look at celebrities like Whitney Houston, Dionne Warwick, Kirk Franklin, Steve Harvey, and others who purport to be Christian.  What is their fruit?  Do their lives glorify the name of Jesus Christ?  When we see a secular artist like Dionne Warwick put out a gospel album, as she did in 2008, we should wonder about that.  We should wonder what connection a singer who is involved in the occult, makes music that glorifies gratuitous sex, and smokes marijuana could have with the Lord Jesus.  We should ask ourselves these questions and not consider these people our brothers and sisters in Christ.

Did you know that the Pointer Sisters also got their start in church and that their parents were ministers?  And as many of you know, June Pointer, like Whitney Houston, suffered from substance abuse problems, right until the day of her death.  Where was Christ glorified in her life?  People like these need our prayers and not our patronage.

These things should concern us.  I don’t believe for one minute that Dionne Warwick’s Psychic Friends connection was solely financially motivated any more than I believe that her affiliation with the animal rights movement is purely out of concern for animals.  And if you’ve read our articles on the Animal Rights Movement, then you know that there is a New Age connection between the Animal Rights Movement, the occult, and the New World Order.

Please understand that I am not trying to cast any dispersion upon Dionne Warwick or the memory of Whitney Houston.  I am merely suggesting that we, as Christians, take a moment and think about why we do what we do.  I am merely suggesting that we scrutinize the actions of Christian artists who act worldly and worldly artists who claim to be Christian.  Because these people claim to represent our faith, and are influencing us and our children, we should hold them accountable.

Be encouraged and look up, for your redemption draweth nigh.

The Still Man

  1. KevZapp says:

    I really enjoyed your article, despite some disagreement and confusion.

    My biggest disagreement is with your omission of the many charities and causes that WH supported. She supported military veterans in 1991, widows of fire-fighters/police who died in the 9-11 attacks, many childrens’ causes and — biggest of all — AIDS-HIV awareness in the 1980’s when the disease was heavily stigmatized. These duties are in the OT&NT commandments for assisting the widow, orphan, poor, sick, etc. Why did you not once mention any of these godly tasks done by WH???? When you focus on all the sins, weaknesses or faults of a person (or group) and neglect the good, such actions demonstrates bigotry or prejudice. This I find very shameful since YOU are a Black (aka African-American) male. Your integrity self-destructs when you state, “We wonder why most black women these days want to be single, independent, and successful and not marry and start a family.”

    Like you I believe WH was directly or indirectly murdered. But that’s where you and I differ. My conclusion is based on her autopsy report. But as for her death and other events, you base your findings on numerical superstition. This places your analysis in the same category as tabloid conspiracies and Dionne’s psychic network. Your numerical patterns and coincidences are nothing more than an extension of astrology and other prognostications as condemned in the Bible and science.

    However, you and I are among the very small minority who took issue with Kevin Costner’s curse word during the funeral. I was in shock!!! Despite many young Blacks hating him for many reasons, I applaud Rev Jesse Jackson for NOT applauding or greeting Mr Costner.

    And finally, God appointed only Jesus Christ as Judge of both the living and the dead (Acts 10:42). God gave Solomon wisdom and he failed. God gave Samson strength and he failed. Paul killed Christians & had an unknown “thorn in the flesh.” I hope WH (and other professed Christians) who publicly fail are shown mercy at the Judgment Seat. Thanks for reading my long response.

    • Hi Kev. I’m grateful you enjoyed the article despite your disagreement with some of my points. I’m aware that Whitney gave to many charities and causes, but we should not let that cloud the issue. Whitney Houston was a tool of the forces that are at work to destroy not only the United States Constitution and our precious liberties, but also biblical morality.

      Think about it for a moment: if Whitney Houston were a true Christian, would she have played that character in “Waiting To Exhale?” If Whitney were a true Christian, would she have played that character in “The Bodyguard?” And if Whitney were a true Christian, would she have sung such a disgustingly immoral song as “Saving All My Love,” the theme of which is a young woman involved in a sexual love affair with a married man (just like her character in “Exhale”)? Here is the opening stanza:

      A few stolen moments is all that we share.
      You’ve got your family, and they need you there.
      Though I’ve tried to resist, being last on your list
      But no other man’s gonna do,
      So I’m saving all my love for you.

      I’m sorry, but Whitney Houston was an immoral woman, in her private, public, and professional lives. Period.

      You are suggesting that, because of the charities to which she gave and the public persona of a Christian entertainer (oxymoron) she cultivated, we should not examine the fruit of Whitney’s life through the lens of the Holy Spirit and see it for what it was. That is like saying that drug dealers, who destroy not only whole families, but entire communities, should be forgiven because they give out turkeys to the poor on Thanksgiving and Christmas and sometimes help old ladies cross the street. No, shame on you!

      And my being black has absolutely nothing to do with it. In fact, because I am black, it is my duty, my obligation, to examine the fruit of Whitney’s life and depict it for what it was: shameful and immoral. If a white person were to do it, blacks would go bananas and cry racism. I’m saving them the trouble. Remember, judgment begins at the House of God. True Christians ESPECIALLY BLACK ONES, ought to be sick and tired of fake, immoral, and ungodly people, in particular entertainers, portraying themselves as moral, godly, and Christian people while, through their lifestyles, bringing shame to that noble name of Jesus. I know I am. You should be also.

      And why should my integrity self-destruct because I say that black women want to be single, independent, and successful? It’s the truth! Haven’t you noticed that black women today are more independent, more successful and, unfortunately, more SINGLE today than they’ve ever been? Most black women want to marry and start a family, but they also want to be independent and successful. Independent, by definition, means “not subject to control by others, not subordinate (as in insubordinate)”. A woman, therefore, cannot be independent and still have a successful marriage, because God has commanded the woman to be subordinate to her husband. Common sense will tell you that you can’t have it both ways. A woman may be financially successful, but, if she is also “independent,” then she will not have God’s blessing on her marriage. Believe that.

      It is for this very reason that black women today are increasingly suffering from depression and bipolar disorder and are so tragically unfulfilled and lonely. And Whitney had a lot to do with it, make no mistake about it. Don’t get me wrong: I love black women and will always love black women. It’s in my DNA. But my black sisters, in striving to be “independent and successful,” are delivering themselves a shotgun blast to the foot. They have left off their first love.

      Now, back to Whitney.

      You say that my conclusions on Whitney’s death are based on “numerical superstition.” And you are partly right. You must understand that those of Whitney’s ilk are deep, DEEP, into witchcraft. John Todd, himself a former witch, who was converted by the Gospel, said that a witch will do nothing without consulting his/her astrological charts. These charts are based on numerical calculations as well as the movements of the sun, moon, and stars. The numerological similarities surrounding Whitney’s death are too prevalent to be mere coincidence. I live and work by two very simple principles: 1. When there are too many coincidences, there are no coincidences, and 2. When there is a pattern, recognize it and follow it. Whitney’s death contains a plethora of “coincidences” and patterns. Though Whitney’s murderers are certainly superstitious, to say that I am, because I see their footprints, is untrue and unwise. The Bible says that we must watch in all things. And that is exactly what I do. I watch, but I don’t practice.

      Whether Whitney and other professed Christians will be shown mercy at the Judgment Seat depends on one thing and one thing only: if they accepted the Lord Jesus as their Savior. And we don’t have to wait until the Judgment to find this out. All we have to do is examine the fruit of their lives. As Jesus said, “A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit.”

      Please meditate on these things. You will see that rather than trying to malign Whitney’s memory, I am merely trying to get Christians to see the truth of Whitney Houston. It’s not wrong to love Whitney, but it is wrong for us, as Christians, to try to justify her ungodly and immoral decisions and behavior. She was lost and, if she did not repent, went to a Christless eternity. And that is the tragedy.

      Thanks for your comments, and may God richly bless you.

      • KevZapp says:

        Thanks for your response. I read it twice. I will keep this response as short as possible:

        The only end-time geography that matters is Jerusalem and Israel.

        Actors, singers, etc are human art. They are employed to express thoughts conducted in lyrics, movie scripts. etc. As art, it’s all subject to interpretation. As for SAMLFY, she sang as a woman suffering over a BAD relationship. However, I must agree with you about WTE — it was horrible, espec that one-night stand bed scene. She was already married with a daughter so like you said that was one role she should’ve refused.

        What I am saying is that she had both good and bad in her personal and private life. Your rant on WH’s effect on BW is incorrect. Despite liking her music, many BW still degrade her about marrying BB, being on drugs, etc. In fact, I believe it was bell hooks (Black feminist) who said WH couldn’t act, was a hooker, etc. So I have to say you are dead wrong on that one.

        Also, your put-downs of BW as a group is questionable. Don’t confuse having standards with being “independent” or seeking peace for being “single.” Many a BW will tell you about the “decent BM shortage” that’s been around since the late 1970’s. Many BM are: incarcerated, homosexual, mentally ill and the list goes on. Also, many WW are marrying BM because older WM are seeking Asian-Hispanic-European girls. So there’s enough chaos between male & female for all.

        Most importantly, we believers should NEVER get so confident in our own salvation that we degrade an individual (WH) of her public sins. We may think we are saved but as one old-school preacher said, “On Judgment Day, we all will be shocked at who’ll be condemned to Hell and who will enter God’s kingdom.”

        This is my FINAL comment. If you post a response, I will read it. Thank you!

        • Hi, again, Kev. Let me correct you on something: Whitney sung as a woman involved in an immoral relationship. And she knew it. In SAMLFY, she knew the man had a family, but she didn’t give a second thought to the fact that she could eventually be robbing the man’s children of their father. As a matter of fact, she was looking forward to the man leaving his family, singing that he told her to “be patient and wait” for him to leave his wife, and she did. And, rather than “suffering”, as you say, Whitney seemed perfectly happy doing what she was doing.

          As for her having both good and bad in her personal and private life, that’s neither here nor there. All people are capable of good. Even Hitler was known to have been very kind to (German Aryan) children. But Hitler was no Christian, so the evil he was contracted to do was consistent with his clearly un-Christian character.

          Whitney, on the other hand, professed to have been a Christian. And, while Christian should not be confused with perfect, we should not be guilty of committing those evils God considers abominations, and we should “avoid the appearance of evil.” The psalmist said, “I will put no wicked thing before my eyes. I hate the works of those who turn aside. It shall not cling to me.” In another place, the psalmist says, “If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord shall not hear me.” In other words, our lifestyle should be consistent with our faith.

          With regard to black women, I have not put them down: I have merely spoken the truth. In my capacity as Christian counselor, I have heard the testimonies of quite a few black women, who are either having relationship trouble or having difficulty finding a mate. Many have been honest enough to say that they have had trouble with authority and submitting to their husbands. Unfortunately, in this age, it is very common. My own sister-in-law admitted to me that she has problems in this area. So, while this may not be your experience, it is certainly the experience of many others.

          I’m sorry that you consider calling Whitney’s sins what they are degrading. King David, God’s faithful servant, whom God himself called “a man after His own heart,” was unfortunately guilty of adultery and murder over one woman. But God, rather than gloss over what David did, told him that He would punish David publicly “before all Israel and the sun.” But even with this, God, when speaking about David, calling him his “faithful servant,” was careful to point out David’s sin saying, “David did that which was right in the eyes of the Lord, and turned not aside from any thing…save only in the matter of Uriah the Hittite (Bathsheba’s husband)” (I Kings 15:5). Now why did God call David his faithful servant, when David was guilty of adultery and murder? Because, aside from this, David lived a Godly life. And, most importantly, David, when confronted by Nathan the prophet about his sin, immediately repented, saying, “I have sinned against the Lord” (2 Samuel 12:13).

          Whitney’s life, however, unlike David’s, was characterized by sin, evidenced in her private, public, and professional life, and is immortalized in film, music, and tabloid headlines, so that it cannot be denied by any honest, thinking person. You must understand that though we all sin, as Christians, we are held to a higher standard than those who do not know the Lord. So we should be careful how we live and portray ourselves.

          Allow me to give you a personal testimony. Years ago, before I got saved (but was seeking the Lord), I was an actor here in Germany, acting in plays and once getting a bit part in a movie. On one occasion, an actor friend of mine offered me a paid role in a play that he couldn’t accept because of a prior commitment. I was hesitant to take the role, even as an unsaved man, because I would play the part of a john (a prostitute’s client). My wife talked me into taking that role, however, saying that since I had already committed to the role (without knowing what type of role it would be), it would be wrong to turn it down, now that the friend could not get anyone else to take it. It made sense in a worldly way, but spiritually it was wrong. Now, as a saved man, I would never take such a role.

          You must understand that I am not saying Whitney Houston was an evil person. What I am saying is that her life did not reflect a Christian character, and was, in point of fact, immoral. And, being a celebrity, she was in the position to influence millions of Christian girls and deceiving them into believing that it’s okay for a Christian woman to fornicate and commit adultery, use drugs, and party and still profess to know and love Jesus. Jesus said, “If you love me, keep my commandments.” He couldn’t have been clearer.

  3. Love says:

    Gospel singer and pastor Kimberly Burrell is confident that her good friend Whitney Houston is in heaven right now, celebrating with God.
    The Love & Liberty Fellowship Church pastor spoke with CNN’s Kyra Phillips on Tuesday, talking about Houston’s faith, their friendship, and their last moments together.
    “Whitney knew to go to God, Whitney knew how to pray and I’m very confident that in her worst of times, whatever they could have been, she knew how to go to God,” Burrell revealed.
    The two companions often prayed together in person and over the phone whenever Houston – who was known to have battled with cocaine, marijuana, and pills – needed help.
    “Whenever she called I was there,” the Gospel singer stated, even flying out to Germany during Houston’s last European tour, “just to be there in prayer” for her. “When she knew that she needed help she didn’t mind saying that.”
    “She knew God in the pardon of her sin and she was very aware of what He could do,” the Texas native added. “That’s why I’m very confident that whatever her last moments were, she knew that God could be there for her and I have the confidence in believing without having a need to sensationalize, knowing what I knew about Whitney, she knew God enough to call on Him.”
    “I have confidence that she’s with Him today because that’s my compassion and my passion with her and for her. No matter what the world is saying I, her friend, knew that she knew how to get in contact with God and I celebrate that fact today.”
    Burrell and Houston were supposed to attend Clive Davis’ annual pre-Grammy party together before the 48-year old singer was found dead in her bathtub on Feb. 11 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel for reasons not yet known.
    The last time Burrell heard Houston’s voice was on Saturday when the megastar left a voicemail message, eagerly awaiting her good friend’s arrival in California.
    “She left a message at about 2 o’clock. She said ‘Kimi, where are you? I need to see you. Call me back. And when I did try to call her back there was no more and it doesn’t feel good. It will never feel good.”
    During the message, Burrell said she could hear Gospel music playing in the background and Houston sounded like her typical happy self.
    “She was in great spirits, she was singing,” the pastor noted. “I was on my way to see her and I ended up going to the hotel but I was a little too late.”
    When asked if it sounded like Houston needed to talk to her about something in particular, Burrell believed that her comment was not necessarily saying anything, but that she just wanted to hug and see her friend.
    “She loved me dearly and I loved her and we just wanted to see each other and hug each other and love each other.”
    The two friends performed a duet together last year at BET’s Celebration of Gospel, singing Houston’s hit song “I Look to You.”
    After the performance, Houston called Burrell that night and said, “Kim, I needed to do that. It felt good. And I thank God that we had an opportunity to do it together.”
    The Grammy-award singer then flew to Burrell’s home in Houston where they watched the performance over and over again as if they had never seen it before.
    As they continued to replay the song, Houston said, “Look at God. Listen to God. Look at God on us.”
    “We shared that moment in my living room,” Burrell recalled.
    Phillips asked Burrell why it was so difficult for people like Houston who struggled with addiction to hold on to a spiritual power and beat their demons.
    “You know demonic forces are strong and they are persistent and consistent and every day the word of the Lord declares that we have a struggle with our flesh and our spirit,” The Love Album singer responded.
    “It’s a constant battle but today the Lord woke me up in Psalm 46 and said ‘God is our refuge and our strength, a very present help in times of trouble’ and I saw God be that for [Houston] … very present in the time of trouble for her.”
    “Whitney was an amazing person and she had such a heart for music and the world,” Burrell concluded. “She was the absolute best and I will love her forever.”

    • Tiffany, you really want to believe that Whitney Houston was a Christian, don’t you? Ok, then believe that. But, don’t try to convince me, for her life (not her words) show otherwise, as the article clearly points out. You can cite as many experts, friends, family, acquaintances, and gurus as you like. They are not Jesus.

      Believe you me, if there were any Christians around her like yourself, who were convinced of her right standing with God, even though her life said anything but holiness, Jesus will have plenty to say to them. Both now and at the Judgment. Incidentally, I stated in the article that I believe Whitney came to know Jesus towards the end of her life and even hold steadfastly to the hope that in the closing moments of her life she called on His name. Isn’t that enough for you?

      Now I’ve been gracious enough to let stand all 12 of your comments that you posted within a ten-hour period. But my patience has a limit. I will not be posting anymore of your comments on this subject, so to write anymore would truly be a waste of your time.

    I watched part of Kevin Costner’s speech. Even though he went into great detail about his life growing up in the church, he used a curse word and punctuated it for effect! I thought to myself, “How could he be so disrespectful to stand behind a pulpit and do such a thing! And how could they tolerate that to happen”? I stopped watching after that.

    • I’m guessing you are referring to the funeral, which I did not watch. Kevin Costner used to be an A-list actor, which would put him near the top of the Satanic Hollywood “in crowd.” I have always believed that the “A” in A-list means Adept, or initiate of the Mysteries. The lives and beliefs of many on that list would bear that out, not to mention the fact that they are the only ones who win any awards. So, his actions don’t surprise me in the least.

      Always remember that many, if not most of those in the highest ranks of the occult where once in the church. That is where Satan loves to recruit from, because they know the language and customs, and are easier to tweak and mold into a false prophet than someone who has never been exposed to Christianity.

      I’m sure they didn’t know he was going to use that one word. it was awkward but not enough to cause me not to watch the rest because there was a lot of good in the whole thing.

  6. Terry Loving says:

    Wow! I mean, WOW! I had to read this more than once -- it makes so much sense, and the truth could not be any plainer. I placed a link on my site, people really need to read this and be educated. Christians everywhere better wake up before it is too late. I am currently working on another post letting people know that just because you name the name of Christ, it does not mean you are going to heaven. I don’t know why the Black church thinks that we will get a free pass from God. This is another lie straight from hell. Without “holiness” many will surely miss out.

    And another thing that bothers me, among many -- Christians treat heaven like it will be a place to “party.” They assume that God will allow them to bring the foolishness of the world into His holy dwelling place. True believers need to take the gloves off as you have done, and put the truth out there as God would have us to do. It is not that we are better than anyone and we are “judging” -- we are instructed to “snatch them from fire.”

    I will be back for more inspiration. May God continue to supply all of your needs according to His riches and glory.

    Peace

    • Praise God, Terry. Thank you for your comment and your blessing. Your warning could not be any clearer: Christians had “better wake up before it is too late,” because “too late” could be any day now. God is speaking to His people. The Lord Jesus is making sure that the devil’s works look like the devil’s works, as was evidenced in Whitney Houston’s life and death. He is doing this so that those who will be condemned at the Judgement will be “without excuse” (Romans 1).

      As Paul says in 1 Corinthians 11:19, God allows heresies to happen so that those who are approved of Him shall be made manifest. In other words, there will be a stark contrast between God’s people and Satan’s, so that even unbelievers will be able to tell who God’s people really are. The Lord is separating His sheep from the goats. Worldly Christianity is a clear heresy, as we cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table and the table of devils (1 Corinthians 10:21). God’s grace go with you.

      By the way, I checked out your blog and your website. Yours is a much-needed ministry, and the first of its kind that I’ve seen. This is rarely—if ever—talked about. Like you, I grew up in this environment. May God bless your ministry.

    Absolutely beautiful! I couldn’t have said it better myself! Maybe it was just me but out of curiosity I watched a total of maybe 15 minutes of the funeral. To me it seemed like a service to empower worldly behavior. Not once was Whitney’s death made an example that no one is promised tomorrow so prepare your soul today. It was just assumed because she was nice she went to Heaven. Now our Bible (Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth) says “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven”(Matthew 7:21).

    In no way am I saying she went to hell. I don’t have a Heaven or hell to put her in. What I am saying is that it takes more than just saying one is a Christian to get in. So why is the black community embracing this idea that God is grading on a curve. It comes back to what is being preached. Look at this FALSE prosperity “gospel” we are being fed. Nowhere is this “gospel” listed in the Bible. Yet we are being taught we can have what we want, live how we want, and act how we want just as long as God is at the center, but God can’t be the center of sin.

    Now maybe I can’t read and I need one of these phony prosperity “pimps” to explain it but doesn’t 2 Timothy 2:22 tell us to “flee our youthful lusts…”? We perish for not only lack of knowledge but also because we accept false prophets instead of shunning them. It is my desire that maybe someone that was there had their soul touched and by Whitney’s death they decided to live for God, and maybe they lost grap of this blasphemous message of “no matter what I do Jesus will accept it.” The sermon by Marvin Winan at her funeral was titled “Prioritize”, but from what I saw it never corrected anyone to get them to set their priorities in the proper order. At any rate, good post! I’m sure you will get a lot of flack for this but just know that I stand with you!

    • Thank you, JJ, for standing for truth. You made a very astute observation: a Christian funeral is always an opportunity to show unbelievers the frailty of the human condition and the ephemeral nature of life and worldly pleasures. It is the perfect opportunity to get people thinking about their standing with God. But a satanic funeral glorifies the flesh and worldly pleasures.

      You speak the truth: why indeed is the black community embracing just about all false prophets like Jakes, Steve Harvey, and others, as well as any entertainer that wears a cross around their neck and claims to be a Christian. We are probably the biggest hero worshippers the world has ever seen. We totally ignore Jesus’ admonition and buy the whole tree, even if the fruit is rotten. We are going to pay for this dearly.

      Someone may very well have been touched by Whitney’s death. Everyone in the know understands that it could very well have been them in that bathtub. Absolutely it got someone thinking. But thinking is not enough. Scripture says that not only murderers, liars, witches, etc. will go to Hell, but also “the fearful” (Revelation 21:8). They are going to have to make a decision. Satan knows this, of course, and so he will use Whitney’s very public death as a warning to any who rebel. They will need Jesus’ help to do it.

      The choice of a Winan to deliver the eulogy was fitting, for like Cissy Houston, Dionne Warwick, and the other “Christians” in attendance, the Winans are “clouds without water, carried about of winds, trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots; raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever” (Jude 12-13). And these shall go away into everlasting punishment…”
