A Biblical Perspective on Amy Winehouse's Death

How tragic it is when a fallen human being gives themselves over to the base and lawless practices of this little world and sell their souls to find satisfaction and contentment by living a godless and lawless life (Psalm 14:1-3, Rom. 3; 5:12-21, Gal. 6:7-8, Jude 1:11-13). Amy Winehouse's name is now to be added to the list of countless pop and rock "stars" who - by excess - have imploded on themselves by seeking to find fulfilment in this "life" by means of fame, sex, drugs and alcohol. Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, Keith Moon, Janice Joplin, Brain Jones, Kevin Dubrow, Brad Delp, Layne Staley, Kurt Cobain etc... etc... all were idolized by the masses of fallen humanity, all were iconic trend setters, all possessed a power house persona and ALL rebelled and raged against their Creator unto their own demise (Rom. 3).

"These sell their souls to find satisfaction and contentment by living a godless and lawless life"

Sadly, the unregenerated lawless subjective masses of humanity will - in ignorance - mourn for Miss Winehouse and wonder why and how all of this could be? They will state, "Why would someone with so much talent and fame take her own life?" "How tragic!"  "Oh... what could of been IF only...??" Sadly, if these were presented with the REALITY found in Almighty God's Word about Miss Winehouse's many demons, the overwhelming masses of this group would scoff at Almighty God's saving grace and join also in the lawless rebellion chorus and rage against their Creator, His RIGHTEOUS demands and against His saving remedy and solution for all of Adam's fallen race (John 3:16-17, Rom. 2:4, 5:12-21). Only Almighty God has ALL of the answers to this fallen world's horrific dilemmas and unsolvable problems. This human scenario is as old as man and has been acted out countless times since their fall in the Garden of Eden (Gen. 3, Eccl, Rom. 5:12-21).

"All were idolized by the masses fallen humanity, all were iconic trend setters, all possessed a power house persona and all rebelled and raged against their Creator unto their demise"

The Old Testament Book of Ecclesiastes is the tragic biography of Adam’s fallen race (i.e., humanity) told by the wisest of all men, King Solomon. King Solomon possessed it all: wisdom, brilliance, discernment, authority, prestige, riches/ wealth, property/ possessions, power, fame, women and glory. Amazingly, as he was reflecting on his life in his last days, he made this very sobering and tragic statement: “Vanity of vanities…all is vanity” (Eccl. 1:1-15, 12:7-8).

In possessing all of this stature and achievement, it never satisfied the eternal void of his heart. All of it did not - and could not - yield peace and contentment. In the end, all of Solomon's great achievements and pomp could never deliver him in the hour of his death. To Solomon, all indeed was truly dust in the wind...

Dust in the Wind, the title of a song released by the group Kansas in the late 1970’s, is a melancholy piece regarding the terrible uncertainties and brevity of earthly existence. There is no certainty, no hope, no expectation, no solution and no deliverance. The song is painted with pessimistic colors and presents a bleak and tragic picture with absolute abandonment and no salvation to be found. All we are is dust in the wind….
"All we are is dust in the wind"

What the majority of humanity (and the song) greatly misses is that without Almighty God, our Creator and Sustainer and His righteousness, all is indeed an absolute tragedy, vanity and dust in the wind (Psalm 39:5). My friend, that was never God’s plan and purpose for His creation (Rom. 5:12-21). It is Almighty God’s sincerest desire that all would come to the saving knowledge of His Son Jesus Christ and have Eternal Life. The Bible states:

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved" (John 3:16-17)

"Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die…?" (Ezekiel 33:11)

"For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost" (Matt 18:11)

"Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light" (Matt 11:28-30)

Jesus said, "The thief (Satan) cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly" (John 10:10)

Your existence here in time does not have to end in vanity. Almighty God has a great future plan and purpose for your life.

But as it is written, "Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him" (1 Cor. 2:9)

"Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live" (John 11:25)

"And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever" (Rev. 22:5)
"Without Almighty God’s remedy for our sinful condition which is found only in the Person of His Son Jesus Christ, indeed all is truly vanity and dust in the wind."
"For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? " (Matt 16:26)

"Behold, thou hast made my days as an handbreadth; and mine age is as nothing before thee: verily every man at his best state is altogether vanity. Selah" (Psalm 39:5).
"And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire" (Rev 20:11-15)

In the end, Solomon fully comprehended that Almighty God was absolutely essential for the existence of man. To know Him is life eternal with great expectation and purpose!

"Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil" (Eccl. 12:13,14)

Do you know the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior? To know Him is to have Eternal Life and possess Eternal Hope. May it be your sincere desire to know the One that made it all possible for you to have all of God’s highest and best for your life - both here in time and also for eternity.

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

The Sadducees


In Jesus’ day, there were two main political parties which ran Israel under Rome's oppressive reign. One was the Sadducee party and the other the Pharisee party. Both groups claimed to represent the Law of Moses and have the best interests of the people of Israel in mind. These two parties had opposing political and religious views and were at the opposite ends of the religious and political spectrum. In all honesty they both had little power under Rome’s iron hand, but that never stopped these two parties from trying to gain - the gentile occupied population of Israel’s – favor and popularity. However, there was one event that would unanimously unite these two polar opposites. Their common bond was the rejection of Almighty God's Messiah and RIGHTEOUSNESS (Matt 3:7,16:6, 27:20, Mark 3:6, 11:18,14:53-56).

The Sadducee's Party

The Sadducee's Party was the progressive liberal party of that day (as it were). This group held the chief position of power by controlling the office of chief priests and the High Priest’s office (Acts 4:1-3, 5:17). The Sadducee's are identified - in the Holy Scriptures - by their ideological position of fully rejecting the prophetic prophesy of the Old Testament and the resurrection of the dead (Mark 12:18, Acts 23:8). The Sadducee's also rejected the existence of Almighty God’s higher intelligences (i.e., angelic hosts) and were greatly opposed to the Pharisees, which held a more fundamental adherence to the Law and the resurrection (Acts 23:6-8). When it came to these fundamental issues these two parties were polar opposites.

These deceive themselves and reap for themselves the whirlwind in the Day of Wrath.
The Sadducees practiced and propagated a godless and secular Judeo theory (an evolutionary theory as it were) that there was NO after life or FINAL judgment or accountability to Almighty God in death (Mark 12:18, Acts 23:8, Heb 9:27). It is wise to take note that whenever any people or nation hold to this kind of godless philosophy a, “Macavellian, Do as thou wilt” philosophy expect to find these individuals only to be pleasure seekers, ruthless and cruel task masters to any people (Psalm 14:1-3, Rom. 3:10-23, 2 Tim. 3:1-7). For such are they who seek to obtain the godless pleasures of this "little" life to their full excess. That is why NO laws or restraint will ever hold them back from achieving all that their sinful and corrupt heart desires (Eccl. 2, Rom. 1:18-32, 2 Tim. 3:1-7, Jude 1:10-13). These deceive themselves and reap for themselves the whirlwind in the Day of Wrath (Rev. 20:11-15). Jesus’ greatest rebuke to the Leftist Sadducee's of His day was, Do ye not therefore err, because ye know not the scriptures, neither the power of God?” (Mark 12:24)

The lawlessness, folly and arrogance of the Sadducee's was that the reality of the Word of God was complete foolishness to them.

The lawlessness, folly and arrogance of the Sadducees was that the reality of the Word of God was complete foolishness to them (Rom. 1:16-32). In their out right rejection of The Law and of the Prophets they led their followers and nation into crucifying the Messiah of the World (Isa. 53, Dan. 9:26, Matt. 16:6,11, John 19:6-16), damning not only themselves but their followers as well into ETERNAL perdition of unbelief and rebellion (Rev. 20:11-15). The Sadducees reduced and stripped the Word of Almighty God down to a mere secular godless formality of religious traditions and rejected the reality of its most fundamental truths. As the Sadducees continually rejected the Law of Moses they reaped the social and moral consequences that they so despised until 70 AD when they were scattered by Rome and dissolved.

The Parallels in Comparison to the American Left

Like American Left of today, these “elite” politicians of Christ’s day had their own self  gratifying, well being, interest, security and narcissistic agenda in mind before the good of the people. Their office and position was an open door to further their godless “happiness” and acquisition of power (Matt. 16:2-4; 11-12). Because the leaders and members of the Sadducees party out right rejected the reality of Almighty God’s fundamental realities, Day of Judgment and the resurrection of the dead, this made them greatly open to demonic influence (2 Cor. 4:3-4, Eph. 2:1-2, 2 Tim. 3:1-7). Their godless minds opened the doors for them to be Satan’s tools for manipulating the people and seeking the destruction and eradication of a godly good that could have helped their people (Matt. 27:20, Luke 23:18, John 19:15). In the end, their passionate jealousy of and hatred towards the reality of the Law of Moses (Rom. 10:2-4) and Almighty God’s ETERNAL sovereignty would lead to the political manipulation of the masses and scandalous murder and assassination of the promised Savior, Messiah and King of Israel during the height of the oldest and greatest feast of Israel, the Passover (Dan.9:26, Matt. 27:25, Mark 15:9-11, John 19:15, Acts 2:13:28).

The Lefts foundations are built on secularism, the rejection of Divine absolutes, lies and hypocrisy.
There are many parallels to the Sadducees of Jesus' day with the progressive liberal Left here in America today. These in America (the Left) are also godless and lawless in all that they do and say. The Left's foundations are built on secularism, the rejection of Divine absolutes, lies and hypocrisy. These Constitutional apostates and reprobates that love to sing “God Bless America”, state to the American people -when the time calls for it - “may God bless you” and even talk about Jesus and the Bible to push their secular socialistic agenda, but in their manner of living will contradict ALL that Almighty God and His Word stands for (2 Tim. 3:5). The Left’s extreme passion and underlying goal is to promote and lead the masses into the complete eradication (crucifixion as it were) of Judeo/Christianity, the Bible, its followers and the very Christ Himself (John 8:44). These secular reprobates are no different in their ideology then those of the Sadducee party of Jesus’ day. Satan always has his lawless reprobate minions in position for the furtherance of the destruction of the TRUTH of ALMIGHTY GOD (Matt. 7:15; 13 Rom. 3:10-23, Jude 1:10).

The American Left here in America today also “does greatly err", because (THEY) ALSO know NOT the Scriptures, neither the power of God?” The parallels of these two groups - the American Left and the Sadducees of Christ’s day - are incredible.

What is also amazing is that both of these two groups lived in a POST Judeo/Christian culture of their time and both groups out right manifested their full rejection and hostility towards foundational truths.

What is also amazing is that both of these two groups lived in a POST Judeo/Christian culture of their time and both groups out right manifested their full rejection and hostility towards foundational truths (i.e., the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God). Sadly many then and today (Bible scholars, politicos and the masses) have a short sighted understanding and perception of the doctrine and ideologies of the Sadducees of Jesus day and of that of the American Left of today. There is nothing new under the sun (Eccl. 1:9) as Solomon of old stated as led by the Holy Ghost. All lawlessness and godless rebellion is just repackaged and sold by Lucifer to a new and clueless generation as a new bill of goods. The countless varieties and flavors that Lucifer markets still have his same godless goal and agenda in mind… His self worship and 666 godless global state (Isa. 12-12-15, 2 Thess. 2:3-12, Rev. 13).

The Future of the American Sadducees

The "American" Sadducees (aka. the Left) are absolutely hell bent on transforming this country in the "spirit of Anti Christ" which fulfillment is to come (Dan. 7:25). Our nation was founded on the solid bedrock of Judeo/Christian absolutes . Today more than ever, we can see what these absolutely despise and abhor moral absolutes, the Bible, His RIGHTEOUSNESS and the ETERNAL Person and Character of Almighty God. They hate with a burning passion conservatism (which is the application of the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God and the best ideology for containing the unbridled passions of man and maintaining social order) and are insanely enraged by those who adhere to the Bible and hold a fundamental position of the Holy Scriptures, the Day of Judgment, salvation of man in Jesus Christ ALONE, and Divine accountability (John 17:14, Rom. 1:18-32). For they know deep in the darkened regions of their rebellious heart of hearts that these things will come to pass and that they will give a FULL account in that Day to Almighty God their Creator and Judge (Rom. 1:32, Phil. 2:10, Rev. 20:11-15).

Even today – with a zealous zeal - the lawless Left engages in a slanderous campaign in lashing out against the Bible (the Word of Almighty God) and towards the followers of Jesus Christ (John 17:14). Much like the Sadducees of Jesus time, these believe that this world is all there is and they do not want any to upset their delusional "brief" godless apple cart.

As our country and world in which we are living today is presently rejecting the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God at a super alarming rate, expect the violence, decadence, carnage and oppression to reach EXPONENTIAL proportions towards conservatives and believers in the King of Kings (Psalm 2, Rev. 6-16). This lawless movement of Anti Christ is already at work and it will reach its climatic lawless pinnacle coming up shortly in God’s "day of wrath" under the 666 global reign of the Anti Christ (1 Thess. 5:3, 2 Thess. 2:3-13, 1 John 4:2-3, Rev. 13).

The "American" Sadducees (American Left) and the Sadducees of Jesus day - along with all of the political and religious ideologies of fallen man , which abandon the absolute reality of Almighty God’s Divine sovereignty and redemptive remedies – will ALL one day give an account to Almighty God in that Day (Rev. 17:16-17, Rev. 20:11-15). They all will one Day come to the ETERNAL sobering realities that they full well rejected Almighty God’s ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS absolutes and will be accountable FOREVER to the very ETERNAL Divine Laws in which they warred against and scoffed against all of their temporal vain lives (Matt. 12:36, Rom. 14:11-12, Rev. 20:11-14).

After the crucifixion of Israel’s Messiah many of the Sadducees (who were serving priests in the Temple of God came to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ in spirit and in truth (Acts 4:1-4, 6:7). It is our sincere desire that many of the American Sadducees will also do the same. When this finite worldly dog and pony  show (with a purpose) is over, ETERNITY will stand before each one of us. May it be that many cast aside their godless delusion for the Godly solution - which is rooted in reality - which is found ONLY in Jesus Christ (John 3:16-17, Rom. 6:23, Eph. 2:8-9).

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
