Today - September 24th - is the 20th anniversary of Nirvana’s “Nevermind” album release. To many of our readers one might state… “So what?? Why the big deal??” Ahh… grasshopper… Why is it such a big deal? Let me enlighten you...
As we as a nation try to comprehend how and why our country has become the home of exponential lawless, violent, decadence, licentiousness, narcissism, abortion, godlessness, relativism, anti - moral absolutes, haters of reality and absolute truths and the out right possessors of the spirit of anti Christ, we need not look any further than the music industry and culture of the last 50 years for the source of our nation’s wicked estate.
It has been the basest of individuals who are reprobate in every facet of their existence, lawless and raging, that have been given access to a medium in which they are able to express their lawless doctrines on the masses (Rom. 1:18-32, 3). If you study the history of the music industry since the phonograph you will find that it has been the chief indoctrination center and pulpit in which Lucifer has used - via his lawless minions - to pushed and bulldoze against every facet of moral fiber and the ETERNAL absolutes of RIGHTEOUSNESS that once held our nation together in a fallen world.
It was on September 24th of 1991 – after years of the lawless tilling of the American culture by the godless music industry – that the lawless, self-loathing, pessimistic, doom and gloom, subjective mind set, which was rooted in anarchy, godlessness, lawlessness and relativism went mainstream and push our country to a level in which all immorality, lawlessness and anarchy was to be received as normal and all who held to the moral virtues and faith in Almighty and His Word were deemed the true enemies of mankind (Isa. 5:20). Since that date, we as a nation have NEVER recovered.
The effects of Nirvana’s “Nevermind” album on our culture and society twenty years have been horrific. Its release in 1991 completely opened the flood gates for the Grunge music culture to enter into America’s mainstream and has manifested and permeated its way into every facet of our high schools, colleges and culture. This flood took rapid hold on the minds and hearts of our youth and has brainwashed them these twenty years with the self-loathing, fatalistic “Grunge” ideology. The traces of this ideology can also be found in other music genres including hard core rap music, rock and many other of its musical offspring.
You see the rebellious 50’s and their musical trend setters had set the stage for the decadent 60’s and their rebellious musical trendsetters. The decadent 60’s had set the stage for the perverse 70’s and their musical trendsetters. The perverse 70’s had set the stage for the lewd 80’s and their musical trendsetters and now the lewd 80’s and all that was before it had set the grand stage for the 90’s and beyond and the spearhead of this new push and arch trendsetter was Kurt Cobain and Nirvana’s Nevermind album.
Do I sound like a “square”…? Well…Maybe, but that is the reality of the status of how we have arrived to the reprobate mindset and estate of our nation at present. How else can godless vice, decadence, destructive life style behaviors become mainstream in a land which was founded on the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God?
My friends, we are ever closer to the Day of the Lord and that is how we should comprehend our days here as the world is about to fall of a cliff (Rev. 6-19). Almighty God cries out to His fallen creation, “Repent and be SAVED from the wrath which is to come! (John 3:16-17, Acts 16:2-31, 17:29-31)” My friends, there is always a cause and effect. We must always be discerning and knowing the why and the what. The challenge is that we need to be STRONG and of GOOD COURAGE to face the realities of our day (Josh. 1:9, Eph. 6:10-19, Phil. 4:13). There are many deceivers that have gone out into the world (2 Tim. 3:13, 1 John 2:22, 2 John 1:7), and in our day they have the exponential technological advances to reach billions 24/7 and to keep the “demonic kool - aid” flowing as they seek to deceive and promote the very godless rebellion which will lead the world’s masses to receive the “Mark of the Beast” (Matt. 24:4, 2 Thess. 2:8-12, Rev. 13)!
As the days become exponentially darker and lawless may you be sure that you know the Savior of the world (the Lord Jesus Christ)! He ALONE is our only hope for deliverance from what is to come (Gal. 1:4, Eph. 2:1-10, Rev. 6-19)!
The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
