The Death and Vanity of David Bowie












How tragic it is when a fallen human being gives themselves totally over to the base and lawless practices of this little fallen world and sell their souls seeking to find satisfaction and contentment by living a godless and lawless life. In the end of one's godless vanity there is an ETERNAL price to be paid which has now become a HORRIFIC SOBERING REALITY (Psalm 14:1-3, Mark 8:36-37, Rom. 3; 5:12-21, Gal. 6:7-8, Jude 1:11-13, Rev. 20:11-15)

For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? Mark 8:36-37

David Bowie's death this week has multitudes around the world reflecting on his existence here in time. Mr. Bowie was one of society's arch godless trendsetters who pushed the limits and boundaries of Almighty God's moral absolutes like none other for his time (Rom. 1:18-32). David was a mighty lawless tool and lewd vanguard in the hands of the god of this world in seeking to transform and destroy the Judeo/Christian culture worldwide (Matt. 7:16-18, Rom. 1:18-32, Jude 1:8-13,18). David Bowie is a trendsetter hero and worshiped by millions throughout the world for his anti - Creator trendsetting ways. What brief things I just shared about David Bowie is well known by all and his opinions and thoughts about Almighty God are his own judge on this matter.

What brief things I just shared about David Bowie is well known by all and his opinions and thoughts about Almighty God are his own judge on this matter.

My friends, before I came to know the Lord as my personal Savior in 1991 I was totally consume with the music world and its ways (Eph. 2:2:1-12). I know this music world inside and out and myself also followed after such things wholeheartedly, so... I'm not out of the loop in the things that I am sharing with you and in sharing with you such things I totally condemn and judge my past actions as well (Eph. 2:1-12).

Sex, drugs and Rock n Roll can NEVER EVER satisfies one's fallen soul! David Bowie, like godless trendsetters before him had hundreds of women and men, lived life fast and loose, lived luxurious, had wealth and fame etc... etc... and yet at the end of it all it is ALL vanity of vanities in light of the ETERNAL REALITIES that await all men outside of Almighty God's saving grace; which is found ONLY in humanity's perfect propitiation; Jesus Christ (John 3:16-17, Acts 4:12, Heb. 9:27, 1 John 2:2, 4:10).

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 thisis 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!

Only in the Messiah is Found PERFECT RIGHTEOUSNESS

Only in the Messiah of Israel is found the RIGHTEOUSNESS that we so desperately need to enter into Almighty God’s Holy and Perfect Heaven. We can NEVER illegally enter into Almighty God's holy Heaven. It is ONLY through God’s Son that we have forgiveness of sins and fellowship with God the Father (John 3:16-17). It is in Christ that we have true sonship (John 1:12; Gal. 3:26) and citizenship (Eph. 2:19; Philip. 3:20) in God’s glorious RIGHTEOUS Heaven FOREVER (Rev 22:5).

We can NEVER illegally enter Almighty God's holy Heaven. It is only through God’s Son that we have forgiveness of sins and fellowship with God the Father.

No Flesh (man's fallen lawless nature) shall EVER glory in His presence (Rom. 7). "But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption" (1 Cor. 1:29-30). Do you know the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Savior? It is ONLY through the Messiah of Israel alone that we have access into the RIGHTEOUS presence of Almighty God and gain valid citizenship into His RIGHTEOUS Heaven. My friend in these very trying days be sure that you are trusting in Almighty God’s Son as ONLY taught in the Holy Scriptures, for your ETERNAL destiny depends on it. Place your trust in Him today. You will NEVER be the same!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

Lucifer - The Father of the Slander Tactic









Lucifer, the Son of the Morning, the greatest creation of Almighty God, is the progenitor and father of the slander tactic (John 8:44; Ezek. 28:12, 15).

He is also called the Father of Lies, Satan (adversary), the Devil (slanderer), the Great Dragon (a consuming dreadful violent monster), and that Old Serpent (cunning and crafty for evil designs) - see Rev. 12:9.
.
These various names for Lucifer describe his godless character and actions against Almighty God, his Creator, and against God's ETERNAL Person and RIGHTEOUSNESS.

These various names given to Lucifer describe his godless character and actions against Almighty God, his Creator, and against God's ETERNAL Person and RIGHTEOUSNESS. These descriptions are given for us ("sons of Adam") to help us better understand who this Tyrant of Lawlessness truly is.
.
In eternity past Lucifer enjoyed a relationship to Almighty God. I truly believe there was a point in his existence where he loved and adored the Triune God with all his heart. He had the chief place as Protector of the Holiness of God (Ezek. 28:14), and he was the worship leader and choir director of Heaven (Ezek. 28:13). Lucifer enjoyed all the heavenly blessings of his rank and position. As events proceeded, though, there came a time when he became proud, arrogant, envious and bitter. In his foolish heart he sought the place of his Eternal Creator and Sovereign for himself, and he led a delusional rebellion against Almighty God in which he and his followers were cast out (Isaiah 14:12-15; Ezek. 28:15-18; Jude 1:6; Rev. 12:4).
.
Lucifer could have remained in his highly honored position indefinitely, enjoying the eternal blessings and fellowship with His Creator. In his madness, however, Lucifer chose rather to abandon the confines of absolute reality and perfection for a vain existence in the darkness of make-believe and delusion. In his vain attempt to exalt and preserve himself at all costs, he rejected and abandoned all that was real, becoming a murderer of souls, a tyrant of humanity, a despot to the fallen angelic host and a mastermind of slander, false truths and darkness. He designed the slander tactic to deflect any righteous criticism and to distract attention from his lawless activity and diabolical intentions. Lucifer is now known as the Prince of Darkness (error, delusion and vain imagination), for this is his reality (Isaiah 14:16-17; John 8:44; 1 John 3:8; Rev. 12:9).
.
In his vain attempt to exalt and preserve himself at all costs, he [Lucifer]....designed the slander tactic to deflect any righteous criticism and to distract attention from his lawless activity and diabolical intentions.
.
He is the adversary (Satan) against ALL reality, truth and eternal absolutes, i.e., all that pertains to Almighty God. He is the slanderer (the Devil) against all those who stand in his way, especially those who trust and believe in Almighty God in Spirit and Truth, and so are His children and followers (John 8:44).
.
Lucifer's minions abound everywhere today in the American Mainstream Media, Washington, local principalities, Hollywood, etc. They unknowingly do his will. He knows how to maneuver and appeal to our carnal (fleshly) fallen nature which is governed by the five physical senses (sight, smell, taste, touch and hearing). The secular liberal mindset is the most open to Satan's suggestions for a Godless trend-setting agenda. They do his will quite readily because they are the most susceptible to this kind of influence (1 Tim 4:1-3; 2 Tim. 3:1-7; 2 Thess. 2:10-12).

.
As these days are coming to a great climax called the Tribulation, a period of lawlessness and the Day of Almighty God’s wrath, expect the slanderous activity of godless men and women to intensify at "breakneck" speeds (Matt. 24; 2 Tim. 3:1-7).

There is only One who is completely trustworthy and true (Titus 1:2; Heb. 6:18). There is only One who is worthy of all praise and honor (Rev. 4:11; 5:9). There is only One who, no matter how much He is blasphemed and slandered, will always will be vindicated in the endlessness of forever (Isa. 45:23; Rom. 14:11; Rev. 22:1-5). Do you know the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Savior? In these last days MAKE SURE and CERTAIN (i.e., with no doubt whatsoever) that you truly know the One who in the end will be victorious forevermore.

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

Obama's State of Delusion Address - Biblical Perspective

My dear friends, we as "Christians first and conservatives second" continually offer great solutions, ideas and suggestions based in TRUTH and REALITY to our nation which would bring ETERNAL liberty (John 1:12, 8:32,36), fiscal soundness and relief, moral and social healing and the restitution of liberty until the Lord comes, but tragically these truths and suggestions - which are rooted and based on Almighty God's Word and moral absolutes - are scoffed and slandered at as evil by the majority of Americans, the GOP and Progressive Democratic Party (Isa. 5:20).

In light of the moral relativistic, decadent and lawless mindset which now FULLY dominates our nation's inhabitants, President Obama has not wasted any time in subtlety using and exploiting these reprobate masses as a firewall to protect his Marxist agenda and as a sword to push forth at breakneck speed. In this second term "president" Obama has continued to rapidly work outside the rule of law and our constitution and use any tragedy, victim, and crisis to bring about his secular and lawless ambitions knowing full well that very few will and can oppose him. The 2012 re-election of this man now have even more horrific consequences tied to them (fiscally and socially) then imagined by many. The dam of "the rule of law" has now burst and nothing will stop the flood of totalitarianism, secularism, anarchy, godlessness, tyranny. decadence, high tech police state government and the horrific consequences of these from totally dominating and affecting ALL Americans. All who will oppose Obama will now some how find themselves labeled enemies of the state by the main stream media and handed over to the blinded brainwashed subjective lawless masses to be fodder for their lawless rage and vindictive appetites.

The President Obama's State of the Union address had no reality, life or substance to it at all. It was a delusion peppered will  snarkiness, lies and half truths and an approach to a vain godless dream of utopian ideals which can never be.

The President Obama's State of the Union address had no reality, life or substance to it at all. He is a punk and and portrayed himself as one for all to see. Be not deceived Obama has zero love for the middle class or civility. He seeks only divide and to reduce us to subjects in his lawless kingdom. Obama's speech was a delusion peppered will lies and half truths and the subtle marketing of a vain and godless dream, full of utopian ideals which can NEVER be (Eccl. 1-12, Jude 1:8, 10-13). You cannot implement euphemistic lawlessness and godlessness and expect to reap, bliss, harmony and peace for Americans no matter how sincere you come across. This mindset is one of the greatest lies and deceptions that has never gone away since the fall of man (Gen. 3, Rom. 1:18-32, 5:12-21). It is the vain hope and dream of all godless men to establish a world order which EXCLUDES Almighty God, His RIGHTEOUS ETERNAL spiritual absolutes and moral absolutes for time (Gen.11, Rom. 1:18-32, Rev.13),  and President Obama's vision for our nation and world tonight fits this mold to a tee.

It is the vain hope and dream of all godless men to establish a world order which excludes Almighty God, His RIGHTEOUS ETERNAL spiritual absolutes and moral absolutes for time and President Obama's vision for our nation and world fits this mold to a tee.

President Obama is lawless in the majority of ALL his doings. Behind that media crafted image of compassion, godless euphemisms and great intellect, lies a godless, cold, vindictive, narcissistic relativist and reprobate only interested in destroying anything that has to do with the laws of nature and of nature’s God (Rom. 1:18-32, Jude 1:10). President Obama is anti constitutional, anti founding fathers, anti morality, anti life, anti conservative, anti business, anti capitalist, anti Judeo/ Christian values, anti Bible and thus anti Almighty God (Rom. 1:18-32). He is pro abortion, pro partial birth abortion, pro homosexuality, pro secular agenda, pro 60’s radical, pro globalism, pro socialist, pro secularist, pro Frankfurt and pro Alinsky. My dear friend, please tell me what virtue is found in that list (Matt. 7:15-17)?

So when we put all the evidence on the table and examine it in the light of Almighty God’s ETERNAL revelation and standard (His infallible Word), we can see that when ANY individual applies godlessness in one’s life there is NO limit to the amount of evil one can do (Gal. 5:19-21). The sky is the limit my dear friend until Almighty God intervenes and puts an end to it. Evil is ALWAYS masked in deception and lies rapped in partial truths. Tragically, after years of the application of lawlessness in one’s godless life an individual becomes very callus and hardened to things which should arose one’s compassion, sympathy and mercy. Sadly all is lost as the individual goes ever deeper into the darkened abyss of the subjective regions of the vanity of their own godless delusional mind. The most horrific state for any individual to abide - next to the ETERNAL Lake of Fire (Rev. 20:11-15) - is for Almighty God to give that individual over to a godless reprobate mind with its delusional thinking and horrific consequences (Rom. 1:18-32). It is this mind set that is fatalistic, cruel and there are no moral boundaries.

To go right to the heart of the condition it would seem that our president has passed this point and is driven and motivated by a subjective vindictive hatred towards Almighty God, His laws of nature, His moral absolutes and those that represent Him. It is from that foundation which springs forth ALL of his anti conservative and anti American hatred and policies. Obama's TRUE war is with his CREATOR and His RIGHTEOUS PERSON (Rom. 1:18-32).

Indeed a Great Day of ETERNAL JUDGMENT is coming in which ALL people, great and small will stand before the Son of God to give a FULL account for ALL of their deeds in the flesh; their rejection and rebellion against the ETERNAL RIGHTEOUSNESS of Almighty God.

Here at the IFB it has been our sincere desire that President Obama and the oppressing secular elites and ruling class of this world would see the ETERNAL big picture and their desperate need for Almighty God's saving grace, which is found ONLY in the Savior of the world (the Lord Jesus Christ), Who ALONE is KING of kings and LORD of lords of time and ETERNITY (John 3:16-17, Rom. 10:2-4, 1 Tim. 2:1-7).

Indeed a Great Day of ETERNAL JUDGMENT is coming in which ALL people, great and small will stand before the Son of God to give a FULL account for ALL of their deeds in the flesh; their rejection and rebellion against the ETERNAL RIGHTEOUSNESS of Almighty God (Matt. 12:36-37, John 3:36, Rom. 10:2-4, Phil. 2:10-11, Gal. 2:16, Rev. 20:11-15). While there is yet time and breath left in President Obama's nostrils, may he and ALL human beings (conservative to progressive) who KNOW NOT the Savior of the world) cry out to Him in genuine repentance and with a contrite heart to be delivered from that DAY (Acts 16:28-31, Rom. 2:4, James 5:5, Rev. 19:15-21. 20:11-15)! A few moments of human glory, fame and position in this fallen damned world are not worth ETERNITY'S damnation (Matt. 16:26, Luke 9:23-25, 1 John 2:15-17, Rev. 20:11-15). That is not Almighty God's will for ANY as a fallen son of Adam (Rom. 5:12-21).

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
