The Sign At The Superbowl... ^ | Feb 8,2012 | Bill Randles

Posted on 02/08/2012 3:34:52 PM PST by pastorbillrandles

For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.(2 Thess 2:7-12)

An estimated 110 million people watched Superbowl 2012, and were treated to an exciting game. My family and I watched it, of course with my remote in hand, lest my children be assaulted with the increasingly ugly and near pornographic commercials.

Knowing that the “halftime” show would feature the depraved pop star Madonna, we skipped that also.

But elements of her show have been brought to my attention, and I believe merit comment. I believe that they serve as a sign, to anyone who has ears to hear.

First though I want to give a precise definition of what I mean by a sign, for I speak theologically. A sign is an event that serves to point to a greater reality.

When Jesus opened the blind eyes, or healed the lame, or cleansed leprosy, he did it out of divine compassion, to relieve the misery of those who came to him. I believe that Jesus still acts this way through the church, laying hands on the suffering in his name, performing healings.

But the miracles that were recorded were handpicked to make a theological point. The “signs” pointed to a larger truth, that Jesus opens the eyes of the spiritually blind, he causes spiritually “lame” people to be able to walk with God! The leprosy he cleansed was a type of the Living death of sin.

In that way Jesus’ miracles were also signs. They pointed to what te Son of God does about the human condition.

What 110 ten million people were “treated” to in the spectacle of Madonna’s half time show was also a ‘sign’ which points to a greater reality. It is an unfortunate reality, but I believe God is speaking to all who will hear…

The sad reality is that much of America’s ruling class; ie the shapers of opinion, the media, the “entertainment” field, and of course politics, education, and even “the arts”, are almost in their entirety sold out to evil.

Madonna’s “show” was literally a tribute to Paganism. She came in on a throne, being dragged by men in Greco /Roman type soldier costumes. (ie The Ancient world, pre-christian and pagan).

The dancing on the stage was replete with all of the degraded sexual imagery one would know to expect from a Madonna outing, and but the sexual perversion went with the theme of pre-christian paganism being glorified.Pagan rituals have always included sexual degradation.

Occult symbolism saturated the set, and the lewd dancers on the stage with Madonna wore frightening masks, one of which was the goat head of Baphomet, (Satan). A choir behind Madonna wore black capes and as they sang in an almost religious fervor, Madonna was elevated on a stage , dressed in black, and with an African American singer also dressed in black.

Go figure! The stage name ”Madonna” comes from her Roman Catholic background, it means “Our Lady”, and refers to the Queen of Heaven, the very goddess Jeremiah warned against.

As if Madonna wasn’t enough, she was accompanied by the lewd singer and dancer Manage, and the equally obscene M.I.A. who used filthy language and an obscene gesture. This was the NFL’s offering to more than 110 million people!

I will leave it to others to try to interpret the imagery of Madonna’s satanic halftime show. I would caution against too much fascination with the details of evil, the dark secrets of Satan.

Instead we should be advised that when 110 million people are unwittingly treated to the spectacle of an ancient Babylonian , and Satanic ritual at the halftime of America’s favorite sport, we are in deep trouble, morally and spiritually.

The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto other gods, that they may provoke me to anger. Do they provoke me to anger? saith the LORD: do they not provoke themselves to the confusion of their own faces?(Jeremiah 7:18-19)

Notice Jeremiah calls them out because the whole family was involved, Fathers Mothers and children , in the abomination. How many whole families gathered round the television, for the Superbowl and had no clue what had happened over halftime?

There are other ominous portents of evil out there, Obama’s bullying of the Catholic (and all) pro life churches, the “victory” over the people of California, the scorn our leaders have for people of faith, but the half time of the Superbowl would have to be the most blatant sign of our own decline I have ever seen.

“See ye the Lord while he can be found and call upon Him while he is near”, for night comes…

"for night comes…"

I fear that night is already here.

Everyone I know is talking about how fabulous the show was. I didn't watch it, but saw photos and a description afterwards and was appalled!

“I would caution against too much fascination with the details of evil, the dark secrets of Satan. “

This is a much more balanced response to the spectacle.

Just a pagan celebration of the Prince of this World.

I think you’re giving this way too much thought.

I liked the description of my local news rag a lot better:

“A desperate attempt by the aging pop star to restart her career”

I almost am relieved that there was some diabolical plan to that halftime show.

It explains the whole Roman/Egyptian thing at an American function and why Madonna would behave like an absolute idiot on stage in front of millions of viewers.

oh, and BTW, Madonna's penchant for wearing gloves in public all the time is not a fashion statement. She wears gloves because she is ashamed of her Sarah Jessica Parker (veiny and bony) hands.

Shocked that Madonna would do something anti-religious. Are you just now noticing?

I'd say more satanic than pagan.

Just meticulous attention to detail and good grooming.

A cut above your average beaver. Elevates it to "art", or, an artful beaver. LOL

What does it say about the intelligence of America when we make millionaires of trash like Madonna and MIA?
It will probably elect Omuslim for four more years.

Hey, BufordP, if you post pictures like that, I DO want to be taken off your ping list… I almost barfed when I saw that.

What a disgusting skank.
