There’s a song I’ve been hearing a lot of lately. The song is “Imagine” by John Lennon. I’ve been hearing this song in many different places and just moments ago I tuned in to watch Dick Clark’s Rockin’ New Years Eve and guess what song I hear? I’m starting to wonder if this song is going to be some sort of theme for 2010. It’s been a classic for decades so what’s wrong with that? Have you ever really listened to the lyrics? What do I mean? Well, let me break it down.
“Imagine there’s no heaven. It’s easy if you try. No hell below us. Above us only sky. Imagine all the people living for today.”
First off this is a blatant attack on Christianity. These lines seem to be aimed at Christians directly. Lennon wanted the listener to imagine a life without their beliefs or to give up their beliefs altogether. The last line with “living for today” lends itself to the Satanic theory of “Do what thou wilt”. So when you put these lines together it’s basically telling you to live your life however you see fit because there are no consciences since there is no after life. Here’s the next lines;
“Imagine there’s no countries. It isn’t hard to do. Nothing to kill or die for. No religion too. Imagine all the people living life in peace. “
These lines certainly indicate someone who would be happy with a “New World Order”. No countries? Basically no borders. All unified under one government. Now I certainly wouldn’t mind no killing as Jesus preached peace but this line says “nothing to kill or die FOR.” Then goes on to state “No religion too.” Seems as though religion is being blamed for everything. Then of course the euphoric notion of “living life in peace”. The Bible prophesies of false peace. The true peace will only occur when Jesus comes back to reign as King of Kings.
“You may say I’m a dreamer. But I’m not the only one. I hope someday you’ll join us and the world will be as one.”
More and more this song seems to be propaganda for a one world system.
“Imagine no possessions. I wonder if you can. No need for greed or hunger. A brotherhood of man. Imagine all the people sharing all the world.”
Now I certainly understand the importance of not worshipping our possessions and that when Jesus comes we won’t have things like we do now. But how is it wrong in our world today to own anything at all? This line isn’t talking about being obsessed with material things but that nothing should belong to you. Believe me when the New World Order is complete it will certainly be that way. No possession, liberty, freedom or privacy. Now “no greed or hunger” is certainly a worthy notion. The problem is that this song is solely relying on man to make that happen all the while having no faith in God. The same people who wouldn’t hesitate to blame God for everything in the first place. The other problem is the same men who want to have world domination and create that unified world are truly the ones to blame for their greed and the starvation of others. Power is a dangerous thing. Lastly the “brotherhood of man” is an unrealistic, atheistic, humanistic world view. Rely on men rather than God. In their minds each person is their own god and they don’t need a Creator.
One day they are going to get a rude awakening. When the moment comes when they think all the world is unified and peaceful, they will be devastated with destruction and war. Their hope in mankind is a false hope. Their faith in one another is misdirected. As men are corrupt sinners that will deceive you. Only when the Lord returns will we truly know peace. That is certainly something worth waiting for. Until then, we can only imagine.
