  • Killuminati

    missvalz: Ever heard of sarcasm? The postings above mine were trying to bring up the Illuminati angle. I simply took BS and made my own devil/illuminati connections. If it’s a secret, millions of people wouldn’t know about it. And when did they start allowing Black people in their white supremacist/atheist group. And if they WERE going to allow a brother, would the leader of the free world with access to nuclear and biological weapons be a better candidate than a rapper from Brooklyn? Anyway, chill out. I was having fun with the boogeyman conspiracists.

      Obviously the illuminati is using jay-z to entertain people so they don’t think about progression. When people are entertained by tv and music they don’t think about vaccines and cures. Entertainment delays progression that’s why entertainers get paid so much


    The Morning Star in Isaiah 14:12
    The Book of Isaiah has the following passage:

    When the Lord has given you rest from your pain and turmoil and the hard service with which you were made to serve, you will take up this taunt against the king of Babylon: How the oppressor has ceased! How his insolence has ceased! … How you are fallen from heaven, O Day Star, son of Dawn! How you are cut down to the ground, you who laid the nations low! You said in your heart, “I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God; I will sit on the mount of congregation on the heights of Zaphon; I will ascend to the tops of the clouds, I will make myself like the Most High.” But you are brought down to Sheol, to the depths of the Pit. Those who see you will stare at you, and ponder over you: “Is this the man who made the earth tremble, who shook kingdoms, who made the world like a desert and overthrew its cities, who would not let his prisoners go home?[10]
    The passage refers to the king of Babylon, a man who seemed all-powerful, but who has been brought down to the abode of the dead (“Sheol”). Isaiah promises that the Israelites will be freed and will then be able to use in a taunting song against their oppressor the image of the Morning Star, which rises at dawn as the brightest of the stars, outshining Jupiter and Saturn, but lasting only until the sun appears. This image was used in an old popular Canaanite story that the Morning Star tried to rise high above the clouds and establish himself on the mountain where the gods assembled, in the far north, but was cast down into the underworld.[4][11]

    Isaiah 14:12 How you have fallen from heaven, O morning star, son of the dawn! You have been cast down to the earth, you who once laid low the nations!
    1 John 3:2 Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when he appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is.
    Revelation 22:16 “I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star.”
