Fame and Fortune in This World Are Nothing
Busy Working Robin Williams Fought Demons
Matthew 6:19-21King James Version (KJV)
19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
I am sure by now you have heard about the suicide of American's best loved comedian Robin Williams. When I was young and didn't know about the entertainment world yet, he was one of my favorite entertainers. He was funny although a bit manic. As a child I grew up on Mork & Mindy and saw many of his movies into the 1990s such as Good Will Hunting. Now with his recent death, It is a horrific story. While this is one celebrity, I used to admire, Robin Williams did the same luciferian handsigns and poses copying many famous celebs. Sadly he disappointingly followed the norm in that wicked world.
He also promoted many agendas in his movies, such as the crossdressing in Mrs. Doubtfire and living for the moment in Dead Poets Society. Dead Poets Society which I saw years ago and liked at the time is a movie that has disturbed me in my later years of pondering it's messages. Isn't "Seizing the Day" the opposite of "Seizing Eternity with God"?
Then there is this disturbing quote: [at the 3:57 mark]
Satan often exacts a price for world fame and fortune. Have any of you ever wondered why an entire cadre of celebrities always come to horrific and tragic ends and so many of them die younger then the average person in America? In this case Robin Williams got to a later age then most.
I saw online the last interview he ever did. It is a tragedy seeing the sadness in the man's eyes. Seeing this almost made me want to cry. When people are led to spiritual destruction, the despair is for the seeing. There is no rejoicing for what has become of these troubled souls who chose what the world had to offer on a Satanic platter. Whatever mental illnesses he suffered from, it is very sad. Depression is a serious problem and something affecting millions now in our world. However he like any other human on earth had the chance to repent too and in this case most likely he never did giving in to despair or otherwise coming to a suspicious bad end.
2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some count slackness: but is long-suffering to us-war, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
His last interview with ET [Entertainment Tonight] is disturbing in it's content. You can tell he is barely smiling and looks like he wants to cry. The pain on the man's face is stark. One very creepy moment is when the interview asks him if he would want to connect with someone from the dead. Now why on earth would she ask him that question?
He makes a joke about it being "very hot". Sadly for many celebrities, who do not know God, they do not see hell as a reality. This applies to most of the world today.
Many in England were disturbed when a re-run of the raunchy blasphemous TV show Family Guy showing Robin Williams committing suicide as part of the show plot. right before his death was announced.
Robin Williams faced divorce, and substance abuse problems. He serves as a tragic warning to us, that a human being can achieve everything this world has to offer, extreme wealth, world-wide fame, being loved and adored by millions and still have an empty hole inside not having Jesus Christ as his Savior.
When someone bets on the sinking sand instead of the Rock, the end is horrific. The treasures and adorations of this world disappear like a vapor in the wind. There is nothing to be happy about this considering this man's spiritual destruction, what ever really happened to him on the last day of his life. He was another soul that could have been saved by Jesus Christ. I mourn what became of him. We should pray for his family and friends as well.
Without God, one is empty inside, and all the money, fame, fortune, love of the world is never going to replace Him.
Mark 8:36 [KJV]
For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?
