King Kamehameha Worship
By David J. Stewart
Luke 16:24, “And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.”
You cannot listen to Hawaiian radio, nor visit anywhere in Hawaii, where King Kamehameha is not idolized. Literally, the Hawaiians have turned their last dead king into a god that they worship. All you hear about in their music is about their dead king who died in a California hospital.
The inhabitants of Hawaii laugh in the face of God's man, partying and living by their own Buddhist, heathen and pagan beliefs. I say this with sadness, and not to be unkind; but to preach the truth of God's Word. 2nd Thessalonians 1:8-9 warns that all Christ-rejecters will burn in the fires of Hell forever, being punished by an angry God.
The song Waikiki was supposedly written by king Kamehameha's wife while he was away for surgery. Their last king died in San Fransicko in the late 1800's. You'd think that nothing else matters in Hawaii. It is irritating being in Hawaii, because all they sing and talk about is their dead king. I'm not exaggerating when I say that Hawaiians worship their dead king.
Although some people may see no harm in this, it is a horrible thing because the Bible forbids worshipping anyone or anything other than God in Heaven, Jesus Christ. Isaiah 42:8, “I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.” God is a jealous God!
I love the Hawaiian islands, and I love Hawaiian people, and I love Hawaiian steel guitar; but nearly all people in Hawaii are going straight to Hell when they die, because they are an arrogant, stiffnecked people, who worship the earth instead of the God of the Bible. In fact, I've been in Hawaii (in Oahu) and I can tell you with confidence that Hawaiians hate Christianity. There is MUCH resentment toward Christianity because of the early missionaries who in 1820 forbad the Hawaiians from doing their dirty dancing called the “hula.” The hula is performed widely throughout Hawaii today, as dirty and sensual as the woman can dance, out of hatred and resentment toward the Christians who two centuries ago forbad their ancestors from doing it. There is an unmistakable attitude in Hawaii, a demonic spirit, toward the God of the Bible. The hula is often filthy, sexually suggestive and as wicked as can be. Hell will be hot!
Hell is a literal place where all Christ-rejecting sinners will be punished for eternity. Many people are already in Hell. The Bible tells us that Hell hath ENLARGED HERSELF.
Isaiah 5:14, “Therefore hell hath ENLARGED HERSELF, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it.”
Hell has been enlarging for thousands of years with the souls of wicked men and women who rejected the truth and took everything lightly in life. Everything is a big joke to so many people today. I have had many people laugh in my face because of my ministry, thinking it's a form of entertainment, mocking what I have to say, rejecting the truth of God's Word. Most people have their OWN book that they live by nowadays, and it's NOT the Word of God. So many people are stubborn, doing things their own way (Proverb 14:12), disobeying God (Jeremiah 3:25), going about to establish their own self-righteousness (Romans 10:3-4). They are on their way to Hell fire and damnation!!!
Jeremiah 3:25, “We lie down in our shame, and our confusion covereth us: for we have sinned against the LORD our God, we and our fathers, from our youth even unto this day, and have NOT OBEYED the voice of the LORD our God.”
America has not obeyed the VOICE of the Lord God. We have rejected the Bible and gone after the way of wickedness and apostasy! Why should God bless a wicked nation like the United States? We are cursed! King Kamehameha is sadly burning in Hell, because he died in his sins without Jesus Christ. The Hawaiians are infamous for worshipping volcanoes, the earth, rocks and the ocean. This is a road to Hell. The islands have always been plagued with willful ignorance and evil, homosexuality and feminism, where the inhabitants desire only to indulge in drunkenness and wickedness.
Sadly, most Hawaiians will go to Hell because they are arrogant. The Hawaiians are a sinfully proud culture and unmovable. They love their heathen dead king; while rejecting the King of kings, Jesus Christ. I am not hateful toward anyone, and not toward Hawaiians either. It's the other way around. Christians are hated in Hawaii. If you ever visit Hawaii, you will be told repeatedly by your tourist guides about the missionaries who forbade hula dancing and forced the Hawaiians to become Christians, and you will sense the contempt and hatred they have for Christians.
It is tragic that amongst all the beautiful music and nature in Hawaii that they would choose to worship a dead man, instead of worshipping the Lord Jesus Christ! I love people, all people. God is no respecter of persons and neither am I. But I call things as I see them. I see Hawaiians as arrogant, stubborn and sinfully proud; just as are many other cultures. Certainly, there are some born-again Hawaiians, and I thank God for both of them. The rest are going to burn in Hell. If that offends you, then it's only because you do not believe in a literal Hell that burns with fire and brimstone, where the wicked will be tormented day-and-night for all eternity (Revelation 20:15; 21:8). Amen and amen!
If you are smart enough to listen to the Bible, then here's how to be saved. Getting saved is very simple. If you acknowledge before God that you are a guilty sinner deserving of Hell; and you trust upon Jesus, the Christ, the Son of God, to forgive your sins, then you will be saved! It's that simple. Romans 10:13, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” The word “call” here means to trust, or “to appeal unto.” If you come to Jesus, believing on Him to save you, then you will be saved. Acts 10:43, “To Him give all the prophets witness, that through His name whosoever believeth in Him shall receive remission of sins.” Amen!
