THE MEANING BEHIND HOLY-WOOD:
Back in 2008-2009, God spoke a word to me that He was raising up a remnant of leaders and people to change Hollywood and to impact it for His glory. This name I felt the Lord was saying was, “Holywood.” I thought, hmm is this my idea or God’s? I was trying to fall asleep early as I had to be up the next day to go to Sacramento to shoot a music video the next day.
The Lord gave me an entire album idea in one night, and even gave me a song, “Holywood.” I have recorded and have the copyright, but have not yet released it. It is an idea that I have seen being birthed in our culture and is what I have witnessed being apart of “JUCE TV NETWORK” a branch of Trinity Broadcasting Network. (www.itbn.org)
This idea of “Holy-Wood” is not a geographical location, but rather, a supernatural revelation of what God is doing in the media, in our entertainment and films and so forth. I am SO passionate about this coming to fruition. (Fruition-is another term the Lord have me pertaining to this idea in about 2011 I heard “this is the year of FRUITION”…that this idea God had would come to pass.) That yes I would see the “fruit” of my dreams, passions, and would see the words that God gave me pertaining to Hollywood would come fruition as well.
fru·i·tion: fro͞oˈiSHən/noun: fruition; plural noun: fruitions
1. the point at which a plan or project is realized.
literary the state or action of producing fruit.
The other part of the HOLY-WOOD idea God gave me was regarding this army that God was raising up people to change the culture in a POSITIVE way. Of course there is a war going on spiritually (Ephesians 6) but we know we have the victory ultimately. (Romans 8) We know that Satan (Lucifer) is the Prince of the World (John 14:30) and that the music industry and “celebrities” are some of the most influential people in the world. Not too far off from what the Bible says about Satan being a former worship leader, a fallen angel cast out because of pride. Many celebrities want to be worshipped and I truly believe celebrities are modern day “idols.” Technology is up there with the idols, addictions, the constant distractions, and so forth but we can change the way our society is going.
Regardless of the cultural battle, we as believers in Christ, can make a POSITIVE impact to make a better world, and to of course fulfill the great commission of sharing the gospel. (John 3 Bible). Technology is useful in pursuing this Kingdom mission, and in communicating with loved ones and sharing love and memories as well. I believe the generation we are living in WILL make a positive impact.
God has shown me the people He is using and some of who God is partnering with to fulfill this great, mighty, and humbling call. I am honored to be apart of the last day warriors. (Joel 3 Bible) . No, we are not going to be like the world, but rather, we are using the platform of media to reach people.
I believe there is a wave forming of believers and warriors of Christ forming like a tidal wave about to splash over the entertainment industry and we see the wave forming, it is already happening. With films such as, “The Son of God,” “Gods Not Dead,” “Heaven is For Real,” and others it is undeniable God is moving in the Hollywood industry. Keep praying for revival, healing, restoration and for spiritual understanding of what God wants us to do in these times.
