An Artist’s Testimony or Agenda? :: By Candy Austin
Matthew 7:16-21 “Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
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.”
Once again, another celebrity has come out of the woodwork, radically announcing their newfound claim on Christianity. Unfortunately, from several of the widely known and previous public examples we’ve seen in recent years, the eventual fruit, fallout, and real outcome only proved that they were false converts! So, it’s no wonder that our common knee-jerk reaction upon seeing and hearing this often tends to be one filled with doubt and skepticism.
Case in point, the distrust and uncertainty in my article back in 2019 concerning another celebrity’s supposed conversion turned out to be accurate through the leading and prompting of God’s Holy Spirit:
(One needs to understand that these people are often Satanists/Luciferians and are God haters who use every chance they get to mock our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, even to the point of using ‘Trojan Horse assimilation’ into the church!) #cantbeatemjoinem
Oftentimes, when we, as True Bible Believers, respond in such a way (with righteous judgment as we are instructed to do in the Bible), the world and even CINOs (Christians in Name Only) will quickly condemn and dismiss us by labeling us as self-righteous, judgmental, legalistic, and even unloving! As if to say, ‘How dare you try and stand on the Word of God when it comes to their truth!’
Of course, there are always those who will simply hide behind a computer screen with intentions of trolling on cases like these by leaving rude, crude, and insensitive remarks. This, therefore, is not what I am talking about. What I am concerned with is being ‘one of those above-labeled Christians’ who practice and exercise their gift of discernment by using none other than scripture to make some real and valid points!
Just in recent months, a ‘certain dark artist’ has come out onto the public scene, claiming a shift in her lifestyle and faith toward Christianity. All of which is great, by the way, only if it is to be truly genuine and not some sort of ‘hidden agenda’ – an agenda that is meant to only further the blurring of the lines between light and darkness. (This is what the alarm bells of discernment through scripture can clue us in on for those who have eyes to see and ears to hear.)
For example, in a recent social media interview, this person stated that their conviction was to merely throw out their occult material (Red flag number 1). Subsequently, and out of her own mouth too, she detailed how that some ‘demonically inspired people’ ended up coming over to her house after she posted that information online. She also went on by recognizing even to herself how much they were feverishly desiring to possess that satanic material, even to the point of digging it out of her trash cans! (This was the first alarm bell ringing out that she should have instead burned/destroyed all of that evil stuff just like they did in the book of Acts!)
Acts 19:19-20 “Many of them also which used curious arts brought their books together, and burned them before all men: and they counted the price of them, and found it fifty thousand pieces of silver. So mightily grew the word of God and prevailed.”
Another thing that this person said is that she has ‘no intention of changing how she looks.’ On the one hand, that may seem fine to some, but in this case, this person purposely and deliberately dresses up as a dark gothic vampire. A look that consists of heavy goth makeup (white and black on the face, complete with long black fingernails), not to mention an attire of nothing but black clothing, shoes, and accessories at all times!
One can say that pointing this out concerning outward appearance/looks is legalistic. Ok, well, let’s just imagine for a moment walking into a sanctuary full of people who look like characters from The Addams Family. Picture your pastor standing up in church while preaching at the pulpit, looking like an undead Zombie, then visualize all the ladies in the congregation looking like creepy Witches. Also, envision the men and even the deacons passing the plate around, looking like bloodthirsty Vampires. Lastly, think of all the children sitting there looking like ghastly ghouls and goblins!
On that note, would you feel like you were attending a Holy place of Worship and Service that was meant to reverence and honor the Lord Jesus Christ? Or would you feel like you were attending some sort of Halloween/Samhain bash or a type of demonic gathering such as a psychic/tarot card reading or a seance? (((Seriously!)))
Would seeing and being surrounded by people all dressed like that be even remotely spiritually encouraging, uplifting, inspiring, positively influential, or much less even acceptable in our true and worshipful act toward our Almighty God?
1 Thessalonians 5:21-23 “Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil. And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
Red flag number 2. This person is also BFFs with a well-known Satanist who famously desecrates and rips up God’s Holy Words/Bibles on stage during his grossly demonic concerts! Not to mention, her latest music video’s chorus lyrics (out just a few weeks ago, mind you) goes like this:
Just take me away into your secret paradise
Come, just steal my fate; there’s only you and me tonight
I got so much rage that needs to come out from inside
Don’t care what’s wrong, what’s right
Give me some of that vampire love
Give me some of that vampire love, yeah
Give me some of that vampire love
Don’t care what’s wrong, what’s right
(Is this behavior congruent with someone who is truly born again in the Lord Jesus Christ?)
An additional red flag is in this person also stating that they ‘don’t think skulls are evil but instead think that they are beautiful.’ Of course, an occultist/witch would glorify skulls because those who love death hate God; for skulls in general and especially in the occult world are commonly used to symbolize and represent death! That should be disturbing to a true believer if someone admires or has skulls in their life. Just take a nosedive and look this subject up, and you will only find that it leads to nothing but nefarious means!
Proverbs 8:36 “But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death.”
Finally, this person ended her interview by saying that she ‘has no intention of talking about her faith on her social media accounts beyond this point.’ Apparently, she just wanted to come out of the woodwork to simply announce her baptism (FYI, baptism doesn’t save). Not only that, to also show the world that she can still be her same ol’ gothic looking/acting/singing/behaving self but somehow integrate and reconcile all of that into the church.
The message apparently seems to be, through several of her interviews by now, that her ‘blending of light and darkness’ should just be accepted by us as ‘normal’ and that we just need to keep our traps shut about it, or we’ll be dubbed intolerant or whatever other derogatory label that is often strewn our way.
Guess what the Bible has to say about ‘keeping your faith to yourself’… oh, wait, it doesn’t! Jesus Himself commands us (in the Great Commission) to go, teach, and baptize (aka share the Gospel Message) by telling the world about our faith in Him. Not just one or two times either… but all the time, every day… basically it is to become our daily lifestyle to do so!
Matthew 28:19-20 “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”
Just like I said about the false celebrity convert in my article back in 2019, ‘Not Sold On It,’ this time I’m saying ‘Not Buying It.’ Either way, their content, behavior, music, and everything these people say and do are a truer statement and testament to who they really are! And until I see real, true, genuine, saving faith-belief and change in them, long term, by the way, and with respect toward Jesus Christ, I’m not going to fall for whatever they’re trying to peddle, swindle, sell, assimilate, acclimate, or do!
Paul and John gave significant attention to guarding and protecting believers from false teaching, as they knew of the existence of influential counterfeits and false teachers. Paul warns Timothy to be on guard against falsehood (1 Timothy 6:20; 2 Timothy 4:15). John warns his readers to be on guard against idols (1 John 5:21). Peter adds that believers should be on guard so they are not carried away by error (2 Peter 3:17). Testing everything and holding fast to what is good (1 Thessalonians 5:21) remains an important discipline for every believer, in all eras. – End Source
This world is beyond utterly evil and full of lies, and there’s hardly anything one can believe anymore, and the last people I’m going to listen to are talking heads/puppets/influencers/bought-and paid-for celebrities of the NWO Beast System Agenda!
Sorry, not sorry.
Until next time… Maranatha!
Sincerely & In Christ,
(I have no Accolades….
I am just a Nobody,
Trying to tell Everybody,
All about Somebody,
Who can save Anybody!)

My Mission is to be ‘Salt and Light’ to a Lost and Dying world,
To be an Ambassador for Jesus Christ.
All for Him and His Glory!
