Fame

Fame

1 John 2:15 NET “Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him, 2:16 because all that is in the world (the desire of the flesh and the desire of the eyes and the arrogance produced by material possessions) is not from the Father, but is from the world. 2:17 And the world is passing away with all its desires, but the person who does the will of God remains forever.”

Let’s talk about being famous and the price for fame. That’s what caused the Devil to fall so hard. He wanted to be famous. It wasn’t enough that he was the anointed Cherub. It wasn’t enough that he had a place on the holy mountain of God, and walked among the stones of fire in the presence of The Most High. It wasn’t enough that he was clothed with every precious jewel when he was created. Just beautiful. He wasn’t made with those intimidating horns and a pitchfork like the pictures show him. It wasn’t enough that he was created with musical instruments built inside of him. Yes! This spirit being was formed by God with musical instruments as part of his anatomy! WOW! God is an awesome creator! Is it any wonder then that Satan (who is the ruler of this world 1 John 5:19) has a thriving music business? Is it any wonder that everywhere you turn there is the sound of music?

Ezekiel 28:13 KJV “Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. [14] Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. [15] Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.”

The spirit being today known as Satan the Devil was not content with the many rich blessings God bestowed upon him. He wanted more. He wanted it all! He wanted to be famous. He thought to himself that he would be exalted to a position high as the throne of God! He made a serious miscalculation. And committed a terrible sin. Satan went after celebrity and fame at all cost. And it costed him everything! He cannot return to that which he lost. And will burn in the lake of fire forever just like every other enemy of God. He will not be in hell ruling with a pitchfork like he wants people to think. He’s done and he knows it:

Revelation 12:7-10,12 NET “Then war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. 12:8 But the dragon was not strong enough to prevail, so there was no longer any place left in heaven for him and his angels. 12:9 So that huge dragon – the ancient serpent, the one called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world – was thrown down to the earth, and his angels along with him. 12:10 Then I heard a loud voice in heaven saying, “The salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God, and the ruling authority of his Christ, have now come, because the accuser of our brothers and sisters, the one who accuses them day and night before our God, has been thrown down. 12:12 Therefore you heavens rejoice, and all who reside in them! But woe to the earth and the sea because the devil has come down to you! He is filled with terrible anger, for he knows that he only has a little time!”

Matthew 25:41 HCSB “Then He will also say to those on the left, ‘Depart from Me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the Devil and his angels!”

Revelation 20:10 KJV “And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.”

Boy, the devil and his cohorts have been having a rough time of it since their rebellion. And it will get even worse for all eternity. Look at famous people today? Do there lives seem to go any different than Satan’s? The massive suicides, deaths, drug overdoses, insanity cases, depression, etcetera, is the norm for these people. Is there something to this? Is it that Satan is these folks real god, and he can only give them what he has; fear, misery, death, depression, and destruction?

Do you want to be famous? Are you willing to risk it all like Satan did for celebrity? Even your own soul? Before you do consider something Jesus the son of the true God said:

Matthew 16:26 KJV “For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall man give in exchange for his soul?”
