Here’s one for you.
I found this at the Worldnetdaily website.
The Beatles meteoric rise, unprecedented in popular culture and unrivaled nearly four decades after the band broke up, is at least partly explained, says a new book, by a pact John Lennon made with the Devil.
In “The Lennon Prophecy” author Joseph Niezgoda reveals that Lennon himself, obsessed with the occult, magic, numerology and being bigger than Elvis Presley, confided in his friend Tony Sheridan that he made such a deal. The book also makes the case that the “death clues” long associated with Paul McCartney were actually subliminal messages hinting at Lennon’s fate.
Written by a lifelong Beatles fan and musician, the book hypothesizes the pact was made just before the band experienced its first major successes and ended 20 years later with Lennon’s assassination in New York by Mark David Chapman, who later claimed to have demons exorcized from him while serving his sentence for murder in Attica State Prison.
“Chapman said that as the last demon left his body he was given the reason for his possession,” Niezgoda told WND. “It was to make a show of Satan’s great power in the world using John Lennon’s murder as the vehicle. I’ve always held an intuitive belief … that the true author of this story is Satan and that I am only the messenger.
Of course, many will reject the notion that there is a real spirit called Satan. Others will scoff at the notion that people can make pacts with him that can result in real-world results.
So Niezgoda devotes a chapter to what may surprise many readers as fairly well-documented historical Satanic pacts – including the case of Johann Faust, who, in his Renaissance Age period, achieved fame and fortune perhaps equal to Lennon and the Beatles four centuries later. He, too, met an untimely, mysterious and grotesquely inexplicable death 20 years later.
While Faust boasted of performing more miracles than Jesus Christ, Lennon created controversy by boasting that his band was more famous than Jesus Christ.
“If John had entered into a 20-year pact with the Devil for wealth and world fame, that contract ended on December 8, 1980, with his violent death,” said Niezgoda. “Counting back 20 years, did anything unusual in Beatles history occur in December 1960?”
In fact, it did, Niezgoda recalls. On Dec. 27, 1960, the Beatles played the Town Hall Ball Room in Litherland, England.
“It was said that following this single night’s performance, the Beatles never looked back,” recalls Niezgoda. “Each of the Beatles remembers this night as the turning point in their careers.”
Immediately following this memorable performance, the Beatles began playing in Liverpool’s Cavern Club, where they became a local phenomenon. Then they moved on to Hamburg, where German audiences went wild.
That gig also marked the beginning of Lennon’s avowedly anti-Christian behavior. In the book “The Love You Make” by Peter Brown, he recounts how Lennon donned a dog collar made of paper, cut out a paper cross and began preaching to the Hamburg audience – drawing a mocking picture of Jesus hanging on the cross wearing a pair of bedroom slippers.
Later, also in Germany, on Good Friday, Lennon targeted a group of nuns with a life-size effigy of Jesus on the cross hanging from his balcony.
“As the sisters gazed in astonishment at this sacrilegious display, John started pelting them with Durex condoms filled with water,” wrote biographer Albert Goldman.
Pete Best, the original drummer with the group, also witnessed such behavior and wrote about it in his own book describing how Lennon urinated on another group of nuns from his balcony while proclaiming, “Raindrops from heaven!”
These were just some of the ways Lennon confronted and antagonized Christian worshippers – for seemingly no reason other than his own amusement.
The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone. Rev 20:10
So many will find out that they have been duped because Satan was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it. John 8:44
The real double-cross takes place when Satan fulfills the scripture that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Phil 2:10-11
