They Ask: What’s With # 27?

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on July 27, 2011

The death of popular British singer Amy Winehouse, after a long battle with drink and drugs, means the Londoner joins a growing number of tormented musicians to die at the age of 27.

Known as the “27 Club”, Winehouse joins rock legends legends Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain and Brian Jones, who all died at the age of 27.

Kurt Cobain (1967-1994)

The lead singer of band Nirvana, Cobain had a well-known addiction to heroin, and battled with depression. He died in 1994, aged 27, when his body was found by an electrician who had come to install a security system at his house.

He was found with a shotgun, and it was ruled he died from a gunshot wound to the head. The death was concluded to be suicide, although a private investigator hired by wife Courtney Love hinted that the death was in fact murder.

Jim Morrison (1943-1971)

The lead singer of rock band The Doors was found dead in his bath in a Paris flat in 1971, aged 27. Medics that first examined Morrison reported the death as heart failure and ruled out foul play. Therefore, no official post-mortem was ever carried out into the death.

Janis Joplin (1943 – 1970)

Singer Janis Joplin died of a drug overdose on October 4, 1970. The raspy-voiced singer was called “probably the most powerful singer to emerge from the white rock movement in the sixties

Jimi Hendrix (1942-1970)

Hendrix died in 1970, aged 27. An official post-mortem ruled that he choked on his own vomit. However, recently it was claimed he was murdered. James Wright, a roadie with the Animals, made the murder claim in a book. He wrote that Mike Jeffrey, Hendrix’s manager, had admitted that Hendrix had been killed because he wanted to terminate his management contract. It later emerged that Wright made up the claim to boost book sales.

Brian Jones (1942-1969)

Guitar expert and one of the founding members of The Rolling Stones, Jones died in 1969, again aged 27. He became known for his heavy drug addiction, and was replaced in the bank in 1969 by Mick Taylor. Just weeks later, Jones was found dead in a swimming pool in Sussex, England.

A coroner noted that the rock star’s liver and heart were greatly enlarged at the time of death; indicating heavy drug and alcohol use.

  • Thuy Trang – September 3rd 2001 – 27 – car crash

  • Jeremy Ward – May 25, 2003 – 27 – Drug Overdose

  • Keiko – December 12, 2003 – 27 – pneumonia

  • Jean-Michel Basquiat – 08/12/1988 – 27 – drug overdose

  • Ron “Pigpen” McKernan – 03/08/1973 – 27 – liver failure

  • Kristen Pfaff – 06/16/1994 – 27 – drug overdose

  • Freaky Tah/Raymon Rogers – 03/28/1999 – 27 – murder

  • Robert Johnson – August 16, 1938 – 27 – poisoned

It’s now become a rock & roll mystery with each young, rising star lost to drug abuse. Has number 27 something to do with that?

Well, to some, the 27 phenomenon continues to be the subject of study. A book called The 27 Club: The Greatest Myth of Rock & Roll by Eric Segalstad and Josh Hunter dissects the deaths of 34 musicians who died at 27, weaving in everything from astrology and numerology to the teachings of Nietzsche.

Fact is many of these poor, defenseless guys have been possessed by demons, and they were not able to get rid of them accordingly.

Satan hasn’t got tired, yet, he has not changed his tactics and strategies, and still uses both demons and other people to try to get us to fall into various types of sins. But whether we are coming under any kind of direct influence from demons or other people, the choice will always remain with us as to whether or not we will fall for the temptation to sin directly against God.

Demons usually travel in groups or clusters, with one demon being the chief demon and the rest of the demons being his underlings under his direct control and direction.

In many of these types of cases, the chief demon will be a spirit of murder and then he will have his underlings having some of the functions like

  • Murder

  • Hate

  • Rage

  • Anger

  • Violence

  • Death

  • Revenge

  • Destruction

  • Darkness

  • Suicide

  • Abortion

  • Jealousy

  • Sadism

  • Fighting

They will then move in and set up shop on someone if they have the appropriate legal rights to be able to do so, and they will then try and work and play that person over a period of time to either try and get them to kill themselves or other people, or possibly both, as murder-suicides are still very common in this day and age.

Demons cannot make you do anything against your own free will. All they can do is try and persuade you to do it, along with trying to give you the actual desire and compulsion to want to do it. From there, the choice will be up to that person as to whether or not they will want to go all the way through with it and actually act out on these evil desires being implanted into them by the demons.

For example, if demons will try and cause you to either overeat or under eat in order to try and kill you, then this next realm should come as no surprise. This next realm is where you get into the different types of vices and addictions that are out there – and demons love to play this kind of extreme game on anyone they can.

Here are some of the main function names of these kinds of demons:

  • Alcohol

  • Cocaine

  • Heroin

  • Meth

  • Marijuana

  • LSD

  • Anti-prescription drugs

All of these vices can become extreme addictions and they can all shorten our life span, not to mention they can all seriously cripple us and prevent us from being able to properly function in this life and in our specific callings for the Lord.

Get hooked on any of these types of heavier drugs, or get to the point where you have become an alcoholic, and God will then not be able to use you in the calling that He has set up for your life until you can get yourself properly cleaned up and fully delivered.

Again, this is why demons will play this kind of heavy, extreme game with some of us, as they know once they can get a person hooked on these kind of addictive substances, they will then knock that person right out of their divine destinies with the Lord. How may potential great men and women of God have never made it to the starting line with the Lord due to the fact that they could never fully break free from their specific addictions?

Once demons see someone starting to dabble and experiment with the above substances, they will waste no time in trying to move in for the kill, as they know they will have the appropriate legal rights to be able to attach to that person.

This is why experimenting or dabbling with some of the above heavier drugs could get you into major trouble in the spiritual realm, as demons just watch and wait for people to punch a hole in their protective hedges by experimenting with these kinds of forbidden substances.

We need to learn the basics on how demons will try and play mind games with us so they can get us to do their evil bidding. The mind is the battlefield in the area of spiritual warfare, with both demons and God tying to reach our through our mind. God will be trying to transform and renew our mind through His Word, and demons will be trying to reach our mind so they can get us to act out on their evil suggestions.

The Bible has already given us fair warning that Satan and his demons have come to kill, steal, and destroy.

So, let’s fight off the demons!
