Is The Weeknd Illuminati or Christian?…

Hello and welcome back to your place for open minded discussion of the Illuminati! As most of you are aware; I spend the majority of my time analyzing various mediums in pop culture- film, television, and music. Certain musicians are believed to be under the control of the Illuminati and we think this because of the symbols, gestures, and content of their art.

Today I want to explore one particular singer named The Weeknd:


In the past I’ve vacillated between claims of him being IN the Illuminati…

…as well as the more recent ideas that maybe he ISN’T in the Illuminati- but rather exposing the agenda:

Let’s take a closer look at the competing theories…


Argument 1: The Weeknd IS Illuminati

Lets go back to my first claims regarding this. You’ll see in his earlier videos the theme and symbols I’ve been warning about for many years. From symbolism of the All Seeing Eye:

…to the dark arts of calling upon the beast of the Abyss with the X and O:

If you consider all of the symbols being utilized by the music industry, it becomes quite clear that something is motivating these artists to repeat the same symbols to the masses.

My theory (and other theorists) is that the “Illuminati” (whomever that may be) know the secrets of the mind. They know that channeling energy into the subconscious through these forms of symbolism somehow connects us to a secret, ancient history that connects into pagan god & goddess worship.

You don’t need to take it from me- prominent psychoanalyst Carl Jung devoted his entire life to the study of these symbols and the secret alchemical processes revered by the occultists who practice them.


Many theorists are quick to point out The Weeknd’s explicit lyrics and videos as part of the overall scheme to motivate the masses to live a nihilistic lifestyle. But still, when I listen to the songs, I get a melancholy feel that this lifestyle is causing him pain. To me it sounds like songs of regret more than glamorization.

So it seems that the argument for claiming The Weeknd is in the Illuminati includes the aforementioned symbols; which I concur with.


HOWEVER, that was the “old” Weeknd…


Argument 2: He is NOT Illuminati

This side of the argument came to me when he released his Starboy video. Little did I know the controversy that would spark after I made the claim; so let’s take another look at it and what updates there have been since…

Starboy was a video I covered in-depth HERE but an overview would be that he showed us the death of his former self and rebirth into a Christian who seeks to break from the control system of the Illuminati who seek to influence the world and ultimately destroy Christianity.

The Weeknd kills his “former” self…


…The Weeknd destroying gold records; gifts from the music industry…


…The Weeknd rides away from the music industry and towards the Cross


After Starboy, The Weeknd released more videos that actually supported this theory.

The Weeknd clutches his cross in “False Alarm;” the next video after “Starboy”


The next video was “Party Monster” which shows the Cross influencing The Weeknd


One video in particular; Reminder, was directed by a person named Christos Anesti. This is a Greek phrase for “Christ is Risen” and is said every year after Pascha (“Passover” or Easter) by Greek Orthodox Christians in remembrance of Jesus’ resurrection.

After “Party Monster,” The Weeknd releases “Reminder” which was directed by Christos Anesti- (in Greek it means “Christ is Risen”)


In Reminder we actually see fellow rapper Drake but he is the only one giving us the Illuminati symbols we are familiar with:

Drake and the 666 All Seeing Eye


Finally, it seems that The Weeknd donated some serious money to the Ethiopian Orthodox Church (the church he grew up in):


Is it possible to be BOTH?…

Can one be in BOTH the Illuminati AND be a Christian?… The answer is definitely no. Even though the theory of this “Illuminati” group isn’t as concrete as we’d like it to be (and it is difficult to ascertain who is in the group and who is not); we can confirm that the two groups are at odds.

For example, my definition of the Illuminati would consist of anyone who subscribes to beliefs of a long line of thought leaders that also have the power to influence all of society (e.g. Age of Enlightenment occultists, Bohemian Grove regulars, pagan sacrifice practitioners, etc.). These folks attempt to pull knowledge from dark and occult forces through the esoteric practices of spirit channeling or other techniques passed down through secret societies or ancient mystery schools. One particular requirement of being a member of this group is to push the Evolution of Consciousness; or more simply put to steer humanity down the path of the Illuminati beliefs.

One core concept to the Illuminati beliefs and Evolution of Consciousness is to destroy Christianity and organized religion while instilling a new god into the world- Lucifer.

Self-worship, immortality, and technology implementation through transhuman means are all part of the Luciferian agenda. In order for that to come to fruition they must first destroy Christianity since it is at odds with Lucifierianism.

In order to destroy Christianity there will be many actions set in place. Helena Blavatsky and the New Age religion she brought forth from Theosophy is a key component. In Problems of Humanity she said:

“…when all religions will be regarded as emanating from one great spiritual source: all will be seen as unitedly providing the one root out of which the universal world religion will inevitably emerge.”

Of course, she channeled this information from a disembodied spirit named Djwal Khul; a supposed “Ascended Master.”

Watering down separate religions into one vague, impersonal god (like we see in Star Wars with the Force) is one method of destroying what Jack Parsons once called the “lying hypocrisy of Christianity.”

The list goes on and on of occultists who believe destroying Christianity is crucial to true freedom for mankind. I can also realize that the Christian faith is not without its imperfections (e.g. the horrific Roman Catholic pedophile cover up). This is where I can actually align some attitudes with the occultist/Illuminati point of view and somewhat subscribe to the ideas presented by the Great Beast 666 Aleister Crowley (from The World’s Tragedy) who suggests that the Christian faith has veered off path a long time ago with the advent of Protestant Reformation:

I therefore hold the legendary Jesus in no wise responsible for the trouble: it began with Luther, perhaps, and went on with Wesley: but no matter! — what I am trying to get at is the religion which makes England to-day a hell for any man who cares at all for freedom. That religion they call Christianity; the devil they honour they call God. I accept these definitions, as a poet must do, if he is to be at all intelligible to his age, and it is their God and their religion that I hate and will destroy.

To support my idea of where they are taking all of this after destroying Christianity, Helena Blavatsky once said:

It is but natural … to view Satan, the Serpent of Genesis, as the real creator and benefactor, the Father of Spiritual mankind. For it is he who was the ‘Harbinger of Light’ bright radiant Lucifer, who opened the eyes of the automation created by Jehovah.

The point remains- one can not be a part of this Illuminati movement without desiring the destruction of Christianity. It is in fact the central aim of this group.


The Verdict

Now, getting back to The Weeknd; if I have to commit to one solution; I’d put my money on the idea that he is not “Illuminati.” When you examine the lyrics to Starboy it suggests that he is telling a story of how the Illuminati teases the musicians and lures them in with the lifestyles we’re familiar with:

I’m tryna put you in the worst mood, ah
P1 cleaner than your church shoes, ah
Milli point two just to hurt you, ah
All red Lamb’ just to tease you, ah
None of these toys on lease too, ah
Made your whole year in a week too, yah
Main bitch out your league too, ah
Side bitch out of your league too, ah
House so empty, need a centerpiece
Twenty racks a table cut from ebony
Cut that ivory into skinny pieces
Then she clean it with her face man I love my baby
You talking money, need a hearing aid
You talking ’bout me, I don’t see a shade
Switch up my style, I take any lane
I switch up my cup, I kill any pain
Look what you’ve done
I’m a motherfuckin’ starboy

The lyrics say “Look what you’ve done” referring to how the Illuminati are able to transition musicians into Luciferians (e.g. Katy Perry who started as a gospel singer).

When I say “Illuminati” I am talking about the branch of Luciferians that worship the man made realm we currently exist in. Greed takes over their minds and they are willing to quite literally do anything to reach new levels of wealth and power (*including blood sacrifice).

Even though The Weeknd uses profane language, talks about drugs, and has sexual appetites, that doesn’t mean he is not a Christian. Humans are all born as sinners- that is one of the key tenants of Christianity! To deny it is to be the most un-Christian thing one could do.

Many Christians are quick to dismiss the messages of The Weeknd but I believe that is akin to throwing the baby out with the bath water. His lyrics tell a dark tale of what it’s like to live a lifestyle that is un-Christian, while also explaining how unfulfilling it truly is! Not everyone lives a perfect, pious life and I feel that The Weeknd is able to reach an audience of Christians that struggle with staying on the straight and narrow (myself included).

To have the courage to admit your wrong doings and repent is one of the requirements of Christianity (“confession”) so with that being said; The Weeknd is doing his duties to try and live the good life.

And look- I obviously don’t know The Weeknd personally, so this is all simple conjecture. All we can do is watch and see what kind of fruit he bears. Maybe he is indeed going to switch to the side of the Luciferians, but even then I don’t think it would be appropriate to judge him for doing so, but rather learn from the mistakes and trappings of others.

After all, there’s only one judge out there…

Thanks for reading!

  1. I am thinking he took a page from Madonna’s book, and is trying to combine to two polarities.

  2. I think your analysis is spot on – thank you. As you indicted the symbols being there doesn’t make them Illuminati or supporters of the beliefs – for starters much of the presentation we see; photo shoots and videos and clothes are designated by the production studio – producers -dressers- art director & record companies and management – the occult images are not necessarily, at first anyway, chosen by the artistes. Obviously 20 people join a club of some sort some go deeper and become closely involved & others just joined the club as an activity and are led and skate along with minimal involvement. Same in music and related industries – but of course there are definite cults – invitations – below the global occult committed corporates – the real cults are found in specific production studios & management companies whether of artists or stage production or lights or sound etc. Like everything it’s choice and sometimes there’s pressure to choose the Dark side in practicable terms – that once done – individuals did not or do not necessarily understand the whole import of the real spiritual depths & warfare that will hit them – willing or not – if they continue. Also most ordinary people wouldn’t recognise the doors they open in more mundane lifestyles, by virtue of the people they meet – work for – even worship with in their churches (many are infiltrated at some point or other) the really dangerous ones always seem so nice and are not obvious – so we should – as you counselled – ‘hold off on judging from outward and not specific information – it’s speculation. Joining a coven, studying and getting all that Satan or the Luciferians can give or arrange, and promoting visuals (symbols that have power admittedly more effect on the buying public than the artistes in many cases) using those same symbols does not make them – themselves “members of the Illuminati” … but tools of the Order … yes and perhaps Satanist or Luciferians but not initiates of The Illuminati – and get this – WHATEVER THE LOUDEST IDIOT POP STAR THINKS. Just like the ‘red string’ Kabbalah celebrities who *think* they’re Kabalists – nope – around 20-30 years studying the Talmud and other texts and understanding ancient the multi-layers of Hebrew alphabet pictorials/hieroglyphs and development of the language and culture and ritual of that language and able to translate it’s text on many levels and the rituals and of course Ancient Aramaic – all of that only enables you to START THE KABALIST’S JOURNEY. All Christians should include a prayer for such people being deceived – given half truths – prayer that they too can be saved and shown the con they are actually being destroyed by. For them but also for the world – as the dark energy they are used as FODDER FOR & to draw others energy towards the dark – is a great part of our mission as believing Christians.

  3. Rhetorical question, I see. BTW, he’s an ilumi tool, not illumi himself, pretty much like many celebs.

  5. 14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
    15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
    (2 Corinthians 11)

  6. personally i believe the weeknd is acc NOT part of the illuminati, his success is merely down to talent. however as with many artists, when their career begins to fluorish they may be contacted by the illuminati who promise to help them further thrive but in all honestly maybe the illuminati in the entertainment industry is to distract the young and “new” generation from the “bigger picture”. idk. but yeah

  7. Christianity or any other religion(s) was set up to control the minds of people, if you look at the true meaning of the word in latin (it means to tie or hold back). Its all based on sun worship. Therefore, ‘they’ are all one and the same, using religion as a mean of controlling the masses. Its slowly losing steam, so now the new religion is through governments (Goven = Control, Mens = Mind) and Money!

    • They are trying to use religion to control the masses it is called freemasonry. You must declare a belief in god to become a freemason but not worship it. that is why there is so much satanic symbolism being promoted in electronic entertainment and anti christian culture in the west. That is why islam is being promoted because of their hatred of christians and jesus. They want to use muslims to create a race and cultural war because of the fundamentally different beliefs. There is even a sect called the shriners who are very high up that wear fez hats with “islam” written on them complete with a sword symbol.

  8. I totally agree with you, although I did feel conflicted. The graphics in his videos, I immediately thought he was illum. But stably and what followed makes total sense. But if you really believe this, and he broke away, his time is limited.

  9. I usually agree wth your articles but I fine your symphatisation with The Weeknd strange. I believe he is a tool of the illuminati.

  10. Abel (the weeknd) is a part of the illuminati but he wishes to be a good christian I think. It makes more sense if you listen to Ordinary Life, or at least look up the lyrics. He says that he wishes he could exchange his fame and wealth for “a halo.” Abel regrets selling his soul. He smashes his awards with a cross in starboy because he wants to replace his material possessions and success with a pure life (the cross). But later on he abandons the cross and drives away. Abel has shown interest in religion by praying before shows (there’s videos and pics of that), showing visuals of him going towards the cross and donated thousands of dollars to his childhood church. That doesn’t mean he’s christian, but it does mean that he may wish for something more just like in Ordinary Life. That’s just what I think tho, it’s hard to say!!

  11. Matthew 7:15-20:

    “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them.”

    2 Corinthians 6:14:

    “Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness?”

    There can be no association with people like Drake. The Weekend is openly allowing Drake to do satanic symbols in his music video. It’s a mockery of true Christianity.

    All over the world Christians are being persecuted for their believes. They are being murdered for the Gospel. If he is a Christian, why not come out and make an open declaration.

    People can use all the symbols that they want to use. It means nothing if their is no real conviction.

    James 2:18-20:

    “But someone will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works. You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe—and tremble! But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead?”

    Personally, I believe that he is another false prophet who is trying to lead people astray.

    1 John 4:3:

    “…and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.”

  12. I kinda feel the same about Tech N9ne and Strange Music. I’ve talked with CES Cru and they’re all into the Mark Passio / Natural Law / Anarchy / Non-Aggression Principle and when you listen to Tech he’s actually pretty moral and talks allot about Christianity/Islam in glowing ways. All in all maybe they present their ways in a dark manner to make the light more palatable to the profane masses.

    I’m of the ilk that just as the PTB masquerede evil as good, that we can flip the script.

    Just my two cents

  13. He must be part of the illuminati.
    How can anyone use you as a tool without your permission?
    Who forced him into the music industry? Who made him sign a contract? Why not leave? Go independent, start your OWN label and have complete creative control. There are many talented artists that are very explicit about their stance against the system and support for christianity.
    Strange how your surname is Weishaupt like the freemason and how you sympathise with a psycho like crawley.
