Johnnie Johnson: One of the Greatest Rock & Roll Musicians to Take Stage

0 Posted by - October 19, 2021 - LATEST POSTS
Johnnie Johnson was one of the greatest Rock & Roll  musicians and composers. He was born in Fairmont, West Virginia on July 8, 1924. By the age of 4, he already knew how to play the piano. By his twenties, he was an accomplished jazz and blues player on the club circuit in Chicago, where he apprenticed Muddy Waters and Albert King.
A self-taught musician, bandleader and composer, Johnson composed the riffs for many of Berry’s most famous tunes, including “Maybellene,” “Sweet Little Sixteen” and “Rock and Roll Music.”
It was actually Johnson who gave Chuck Berry his big break. On New Year’s Eve in 1952, Johnson, then fronting the his own trio in St. Louis, was stuck. His sax player fell ill and he needed an emergency replacement, so he called in his pal Berry, a promising young guitarist, to fill in. The show was a hit, Johnson asked Berry to join the band, and soon the more charismatic Berry was the front man. Their partnership produced dozens of hit songs before they parted company in 1973.
Johnson eventually fell off the radar because of alcohol issues. He was driving a bus when Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards tracked Johnson down during the making of the 1987 Berry documentary, Hail! Hail! Rock ‘n’ Roll. Johnson received little recognition until the Chuck Berry concert documentary  was released in 1987. That attention helped Johnson return to music, he returned to music to record his first solo album, Blue Hand Johnnie, that year.
Richards, convinced that Johnson should be in the rock pantheon alongside Berry, launched a high profile campaign to get Johnson into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. But Hall rules stipulated that a musician isn’t eligible for the Rock Hall until 25 years after his/her first credited album. Johnson was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2001. Johnson influenced generations of rockers through his collaborations with Berry–everyone from Elvis Presley and Little Richard to the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. Johnson died in 2005, he was 80.

    Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all religions under the worship of one God. They deny Jesus as their Messiah, and the Bible tells us this Jewish Messiah will be the counterfiet that will bring about a false peace, and ultimatley the great tribulation.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations. If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart. Jesus loves you more than you could imagine. He wants to have a relationship with you and redeem you from your sins. Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! God bless!
