Imagine - John Lenon (Satanic Vision Song)

IMAGINE (John Lenon - The Beatles)

by David J. Stewart

“It is better to hear the rebuke of the wise, than for a man to hear the song of fools.” (Ecclesiastes 7:5)

Imagine first appeared on the Billboard chart on September 18, 1971, reaching #1 and spending a total of 30 weeks. “Imagine” was John Lennon's second major release apart from the Beatles. Released on September 9, 1971 (US) and October 8, 1971 (UK), it has remained John's most commercially successful album. It was recorded primarily in John's home studio which turned out to be the last time he would ever record in England. 

The first tract on the album, Imagine, would become Lennon's legacy to a world living in rebellion against God. In the song, Lennon paints an “unrealistic” picture of life in the minds of his listeners. He sees a world without Heaven or Hell, without religion. He sees a world without countries, borders and without war.

Though such a “dream” may seem admirable to many people, Lennon's dream CLEARLY requires an abandonment of God and His Word. Sin is ignored. The Bible has divided more people than any other book ever written. Why is this? It's simply because there is a Heaven and Hell John. Sin is a reality of life. There is a malicious Devil who works relentlessly to DECEIVE us (2nd Corinthians 4:4; 11:3). There is a Loving God in Heaven Who has provided us with a plan of redemption through faith in Jesus Christ (Acts 10:43). Humanity is sinful (Isaiah 64:6; Romans 3:10,19-23). 

No matter how much we try to fulfill Lennon's dream, it WILL fail because humans are wicked, dirty, rotten, conniving, lying, stealing, murderous, hell-bound, sinners! This is exactly what is wrong with modern psychology. Whether you believe the Bible or not, you CANNOT deny historical facts. If history has taught us only one thing, it has taught us that men DON'T learn from their mistakes. History always repeats itself. The Bible describes the woeful condition of mankind like no other Book. Who are we to argue with God?
Here's the lyrics to Lennon's hit song Imagine (1971):

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...

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace...

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

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...

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 live as one

Did you read that? Lennon sang, “Imagine there's no heaven... it's EASY if you try.” It's easy if you try? Well, not exactly John. You see Psalm 19:1 proclaims that “The heavens declare the glory of God...” It would be very difficult to deny something that is so obvious. In fact, let's look at Romans 1:20 (I'm about to discourage anyone who shares Lennon's dream of a utopian world without God)...

"For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:" (Romans 1:20)

Romans 1:20 plainly warns that no one has an excuse not to acknowledge and obey God in their life. Certainly, Lennon's message sounds wonderful. Only a hateful person would want war and bloodshed, which religion often leads to. However, John Lennon's views are not reality. War is a fact of life, because sin is a fact of life.

As long as there are lustful, greedy, proud, murderous, hateful people in the world there will be a necessity to go to war. It would be great if we were all perfect, and there were no sinners  and we could all respect and love one another; but that's not the situation at all.

We are sinners... “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.” Sadly, despite the Vatican's attempt to forgive John's sins, it's too late him.

Lennon's song, Imagine, is nothing more than a delusional fantasy. Tragically, many people in the world today are trying to fulfill Lennon's impossible dream. It's the religion of New Age and it's vehicle is the New World Order, i.e., the Beast System of the coming Antichrist. New Age teachings ignore the reality of sin, the necessity for divine judgment and the justice of being punished in the fires of Hell. We all deserve to burn in Hell for our own sins. The root teaching of New Age is that mankind is not sinful, which eliminates the need for salvation and a Savior. This is not reality. Anyone with a brain sees the wickedness of mankind. Everyone
blames religious people; but it's mankind as a whole.

Satan is a master deceiver... "For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming them elves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light" (2nd Corinthians 11:13-14). Satan is a con-artist. When The Beatles came to America, America's preachers weren't just angry about the devilish music. They were also concerned about the worldly philosophies of The Beatles. From Paul McCartney's praise of Roman Catholicism in the hit song, Let It Be, to George Harrison's praise of Hare Krishna in his song, My Sweet Lord, The Beatles brought evil to America.

It was in the hit song, Back In The U.S.S.R., that The Beatles praised Communist Russia. One of Paul McCartney's song was titled, "Let's Do It In The Road." The Beatles represented everything unholy: fornication, drug abuse, rebellion, Communism, blasphemy against Jesus Christ, false religion, and even allegiance to Satan, as I will show you in a moment.
