The Illumanati (plural of the Latin word illumanatus which transalates enlightened) can be traced back to the sun and the isis cults of ancient Egypt, a Spanish Bavarian society founded in 1776, and to freemasonry. Members of these societies claim to have spiritual enlightenment. There members take part in ocultic rituals, make blood oaths to be killed if they ever reveal the existence of the society, and sell their souls to the devil.

These clips highlight the existence of the illumanati in the music industry and how fame is acheived by selling your soul to the devil. These music artiste make a bargain with the "cheif commander ....who live lives on this earth and in the world we can't see." (Dave Dylon on an iterview)
Artiste often take on alter egos as a symbolic representation of being taken over by demons to obtain success. Britney Spears' alter ego, Mona Lisa, was acquired in 2004 just after she was inducted into Illumanati.
In 2006 Britney Spears began singing about her rebellion,"to find the truth" as she put it, from the Illumanati and warned about their techniques used to "deceive" and the selling of souls. Since then Britney has gone through what many would explain as psychological melt downs. She often talked about being tired of her handlers - mind controlling spiritual forces. Britney's life and career took a nose dive after trying to break free from her spiritual bondage - Illumanati.
The book by Neil Anderson entitled The Bondage Breaker shed light on the reality that demons are active on the earth today just as the were when Jesus was on earth. He cites the New Testement, Ephesians 6:12, to emphasize that believers will wrestle "against the rulers, against the powere, against the forces of darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places." Anderson goes on to bolster his stance and posits that the new age course is the same as the old age spiritualsm in the old testement with new terms. Looking at the aformentioned clips, it is plain to see that the new age form of spiritual darkness is very present in this world. The change in terms that Anderson has pointed out is also reflected in the words 'handler' and 'cheif commander.'
Prior to Jesus dying on the cross, divinely empowered agents such as Jesus himself and his appointed apostles, were necessary to take authority over demonic powers in the world. Jesus dying on the cross and resurecting changed the nature of spirtitual conflicts for ever. His death and resurection triumphed over and disarmed the rulers and authorities of the kingdom of darkness. See Colossians 2:15, Matthew 28:18, and Ephesians 2:5,6 for futher affirmation of the truth of Christ's victory and satan's defeat.
Anderson notes that it is truth that will help you to sucessfully stand against the enemy's attempt to intimidate you. People are in bondage to the lies they believe(pg 11). Jesus said, "You will know the truth, and the truth will make you free" (John 8:32). Britney had the right idea about looking for truth to break free from her spiritual bondage. The problem is she was not liiking in the right place or more importantly, to the right peron - Jesus Christ, to find that truth. She relied on herself to find the truth and to break free. Self-sufficiency is the number one damn that is holding back the rivers of revival (pg 38). The enemy is a destroyer. As Britney sought the truth, he set out to destroy and kill her so that she would not find the truth that would set her free.
Britney's perceived psychological mental illness was a spiritual battle for her mind. Becuse the western worlview has conditioned many to look for every possible physical and psychological explanations, it is understandable that in Britney's case, most people saw her actions as a psychological problem, labeling her as having depression and dissociative personality disorder.
Because these artiste sold their souls for gain in the lower life (this life and not eternity), they are damned to lose their lives if they do not find the truth which is in Christ Jesus. "Shoot for this world and that's all you'll get, and eventually lose even that. But shoot for the next world, and God will throw in the benefits of knowing him now" (pg 41). Knowing God and His truth is the only thing that will set captives free.For more information on the Illumanati in the music industry click on the link.
