As an artist, I owe it to my community to inform you about the hidden world right before your eyes. The world is nothing more than letters, numbers, symbols and codes. I see the hidden world but now I bring it to you for you to do your own research, tell your loved ones & to be aware of what surrounds you. The first Code Cuts will deal with one of the biggest names in the music industry today. When you hear the name Jay-Z, you may begin to think of words such as 'mogul,' 'entrepreneur,' 'hustler,' 'entertainer,' and 'businessman.' Do words like 'Illuminatti,' 'baphomet,' or 'occult' come to mind as well? Jay-Z's new album "Magna Carta Holy Grail" made headlines as the album went platinum before even being released due to an unprecedented deal with Samsung. The album is now beyond double platinum status. Apart from singles such as "Picasso Baby" and "Holy Grail," have you ever looked into the history of the song title? As Jay-Z once said in the song "Renegade" featuring Eminem "Do you fools listen to music or do you just skim through it?" The Magna Carta is a document that was forced upon the King of England in the year of 1215 with the intent of limiting the King's power with special people's privileges protected. This document was given to the King by his own subjects, including an influential religious order called the Templar Knights. The Templar Knights were a power hungry group with a history of sexual perversion and satanic worshiping rituals in private while professing love and fidelity to Jesus Christ (and allow them to be exempt from paying taxes) in the guise of being religious monks. The Templar Knights rose to power after receiving a religious book called "The Qabalah," or "Kabbalah," which is very popular today amidst pop culture figures such as Madonna due to its spiritual nature. However, the book has a dark past. According to legend, a demon relayed this book to a human who transcribed it word for word. After the Templar Knights finished a bloody crusade in an effort to collect all the books of the Kabbalah, the King of England succumbed to the will of the Templar Knights (who also were the first international bankers). Out of this deceptive faction of monks came the “Illuminati.” The Holy Grail is a mythical item which has various meanings. Jerusalem is riddled with underground tunnels constructed by the Templar Knights due to a successful search of the secret that is the Holy Grail. It is said the Holy Grail is not an actual grail, but a deep occult secret. The secret is that physical matter can be transformed by the use of demonic incantations and that reality is an illusion. Some believe that this is how the antichrist, the physical manifestation of Satan, will come into humanity's reality of existence. Others believe the Holy Grail is a reference to the Ark of the Covenant or a code word for the family of Jesus. Some believe that Jesus had a child with Mary Magdalene, which started a holy bloodline on earth, as popularized by Dan Brown's bestselling book, “The Da Vinci Code.” But the Bible teaches us God is not the author of confusion. Considering Jay-Z has amassed such wealth, one must think that Jay-Z is quite aware of what he writes musically, not to mention the perceptions that his conjures in the minds of those who listen to it, wither he speaks on it or not. This is also coming from a man who wants the world to call him by the biblical name for God, Jehovah. Jay-Z calls himself “Jay Hova,” or “Hov,” which he often cries out over the music he creates. Considering Jay-Z wears this hoodie that embossed on it the phrase, "Do What Thou Wilt," says it all about his “house of thought.” That phrase comes from a man who calls himself, "The Beast 666," professed Satanist named Aleister Crowley. Perhaps Jay-Z simply liked the phrase and has no knowledge of the roots of the words which he bears in this image. Let's hear what he has to say on this. The lyrics below are taken from Jay-Z's song from his new album, “Magna Carta Holy Grail: "Conspiracy theorist screaming “Illuminati!” / They can’t believe this much skill is in the human body..." "Getting ghost in the Ghost, can you see me? Can you see me? / Have mercy on a Judas, angel wings on a (Lambor)'ghini " "I confess, God in the flesh. / Live among the serpents, turn arenas into churches. / I'm like Michael, recycle, these are not 16's. These are verses from the Bible. / Tell that preacher he's a preacher, I'm a ************ prophet. / Smoke a tree of knowledge, drink from a gold chalice." In his own words, Jay-Z is sarcastically making light of the allegations while stating who he is in the minds of those who may bear Christ as their Savior with lyrics like "Have mercy on a Judas!" Judas was the betrayer of Christ, giving him up to the Romans for 40 pieces of silver. Judas would later commit suicide when he realized the seriousness of his actions (and recalling Christ’s words to his Disciples that one of them would betray him). Jay-Z's “savior” is his money and himself as he states, "I confess, God in the flesh." We have already established that Jay-Z thinks he is God or a god as he says in another song called "Crown.” Music is powerful. According to religious scholars, Lucifer, also known as Satan (or commonly known now as the Devil), was the minister of music in Heaven before being cast out. Jay-Z yet again confirms the power of music as he has become an idol of adoration with words like "Live among the serpents, turn arenas into churches." Jay- Z even goes as far to say he is better than any preacher because he's a prophet. In Christian churches, believers “catch the Holy Ghost.” If Jay-Z's concerts are religious ceremonies conducted in arenas-turned-churches, what spirit is being caught and what sermon is being preached? The “tree of knowledge” he mentions is found in Genesis chapter 3 which he smokes from as a form of pleasure or rejoicing in his death as he drinks from a gold chalice. 1 John 2:15-17 says: "Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. “For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. “And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth forever." (KJV) To confirm what I am saying, research the lyrics of Jay-Z’s songs. But don’t listen to any Jay-Z’s music. Don’t listen, watch or even entertain the idea of partaking in the album, "Magna Carta Holy Grail." The album’s demonic and dark roots may cause portals to open in your life that you may not be aware of. If you’ve already purchased and listened to the album, throw it in the trash immediately. The music industry supports this type of music because of the influence it and the artists who make it have over the uninformed. But the more aware communities become of the messages within the music--whether it be Jay-Z or another artist professing to have “a message,” the easier it is to resist. I am only a messenger sent to bring awareness and warning to you. As an artist, I would not be doing my community a good service if I did not share with you what I am blessed by the Most High God to see and articulate to you in a way you can understand. Art is a reflection of life or the lack of it. Be careful what you watch, listen to and engage in. Lastly, think about this. So many artists and higher-ups in the corporate or political world are glorifying the devil. It makes you wonder if darkness exists? If that’s the case, then light must exist as well; meaning if the devil is real then God must be real. I am a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, the same Christ that can save you if you believe upon Him. In "Empire State Of Mind," by Jay-Z and featuring singer Alicia Keys, Jay-Z says: "Jesus can't save you. Life starts when the church ends." This a man, an “artist” who does not profess to believe in Jesus; who spends an inordinate amount of time and “talent” bashing the Lord. I encourage you to study Genesis chapter 3 & then to study John 3:16-17. I encourage you to seek God for yourself. I encourage you to pray to God. You are beyond valuable which is why a war is taking place for your soul right now as you read this. We all have freewill and must choose today whom we will serve, wither God or man. I pray that you choose well. Next week on Code Cuts, we will dive deeper into Jay Z's empire, family & spiritual ideals. May the Most High bless you, keep you & protect you from the wiles of the evil one. Shalom.
