Canadian pop star Justin Bieber has 95-million followers on Instagram and recently he shared a message with them on his personal faith in Christ.

The 23-year-old pop star took a photo of a white erase board on which he wrote a message with a black marker:

“Do you feel you have exausted all options? Do you feel like you’re never good enough? What if I told you that there is a god that’s willing to meet you WHEREVER you’re at! What if I told you that he could take away your pain, shame, guit, and fears #Jesus.”

The photo caption read simply “Jesus is changing me from the inside out every day! AND I MISSPELLED GUILT and exhausted.”

Despite the typos and as someone pointed out maybe “god” should be capitalized, it was a heartfelt message. I loved the way it was hand written including even the typos because this showed it was real.

Over 2.2 million, mostly young people, liked the post and 52 thousand commented. Not all the comments were positive, but the majority were.

Because few can question the dramatic transformation that is taking place in Justin’s life since his decision to embrace Christ. Just three plus years ago, the pop singer was having multiple run-ins with the police:

  • January 9, 2013: Los Angeles police investigated after a neighbor alleged Justin and friends egged their home during a party at the pop star’s home where police also found cocaine owned by another person.
  • January 23, 2014: Miami-county police arrested Justin alleging that he was driving a yellow Lamborghini under the influence of Marijuana and alcohol. The police also said that Justin was drag racing a red Ferrari. The pop star was released on $2,500 bail.
  • January 29, 2014: Justin Bieber turned himself into the Toronto police after police alleged the pop star assaulted a limousine driver in late December 2013.

Like all Christians, Justin is not perfect, but the ongoing change taking place in his life is a testimony of the work of the Holy Spirit.

I consider Revelation 12:10-11, one of the most powerful passages in the Book of Revelation. Despite, the persecution and Satanic attacks against Christians in the end times that will come primarily through accusations, the Apostle John noted the victory of believers:

“… for the accuser of our brethren has been thrown down, he who accuses them before our God day and night. 11 And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life even when faced with death. (Revelation 12:10-11 NASV)

End-times Christians will overcome Satan because of the Blood of Jesus. This is not just lip service, but truly embracing and believing the forgiveness we have through the Blood of Christ. Despite what Satan and others may say we are clean and righteous.

As Justin wrote, Jesus can take away “shame, guit.”

Secondly, they overcame Satan by the ‘word of their testimony’ as their changed lives testified of the work of the Holy Spirit.

Many underestimate their testimony as a powerful weapon in spiritual warfare. Though, there are some who may not like the spiritual message that Justin is sending through social media, few can argue about the transformation that has taken place and is taking place in the pop star’s life.



  1. Tattoos (any tattoo)
    During the pagan years and before the coming of our Lord Jesus many those wanting to show they belong to a certain pagan God who in essence was the devil and his demons in disguises, marked their selves with the “appropriate” markings in order to let everyone know of their spiritual beliefs.
    The coming of our Lord and the receiving of the Christian Baptism as delivered by the Apostles, bestowed on each and every individual baptized a SEAL by the Holy Spirit that is seen and can be recognized by angels!
    In the case of death or at His Second coming the angels will not pick up the souls of those who have markings and will leave them for the devil for it is a sin against God to tattoo a mark upon you
    Leviticus 19: 28 “Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the LORD”.
    Note: Lord Jesus as high priest in the Greek Orthodox Baptism, erases all sin including the sin of markings on the body and allows each and every person this way a new beginning a new relationship with his God creator!

    Lord Jesus did not come to teach philosophically but THERAPEUTICALLY
