Elvis Presley And God

I heard it said that Elvis Presley wanted to know how to have that "ultimate" experience with God. What would you tell someone if they asked you how and what would you tell a person if they asked you to take them into the Holy of Holies?

donna, Maybe it's the way your coming off.
---GeorgeMcCabe on 11/15/08

This is Elvis. I want to thank donna for bringing this Blog here. I'm in hidding because I'm about 315 now and I am really not in the mood for the snickers and jokes behind my back. Now I have something else to do. Watch my red Elvis Marquee go by over and over again while playing Viva Las Vegas. Viva, Viva, Las Vegas!! Man, that makes me hungry. Anybody up for BBQ and donuts? Maybe shoot up some TV screens.
---Big_E on 4/26/07

I hear they found Elvis, dusted him off and hooked him up to a computerized electronic system. At his come back concert the producers don't want people rushing the stage, so there will be a sign up above the stage which will read..."WARNING: Don't not touch electrodes on Elvis's head"! "ONLY FOOLS RUSH IN"

PB, that was wonderful! Applause-clap --clap- clap. You have a beautiful voice! I know this agent.....I play great air keyboard. rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

---JP on 4/25/07

PB, Elvis was only a man. I will not judge him because so many already have. We should only worship our God through Jesus Christ our Lord. With that said, it's still fun to joke about him though. That Peanut Butter lovin boy. Hee Haw! Guess what? They brought back Elvis by popular demand, on American Idol, tonight! I just hope he doesn't have a "Back from the dead" concert. Viva Las Vegas!

Oh, theres black jack and poker and the roulette wheel
A fortune won and lost on evry deal
All you needs a strong heart and a nerve of steel
Viva las vegas, viva las vegas
Viva las vegas with you neon flashin
And your one armbandits crashin
All those hopes down the drain
Viva las vegas turnin day into nighttime
Turnin night into daytime
If you see it once
Youll never be the same again
Im gonna keep on the run
Viva las vegas, viva las vegas,
Viva, viva las vegas

Hi PB, how ya doin? Haven't been back to this blog in a month. "I like Peanut Butter, I like toast and jam". You must really think up loopy. Woo Hoo! Tell him what he's won there Johnny: "Yes PB he's won an all expense paid one way trip with the Flyin Elvis's! And yes PB, he'll be wisked away on a C-130 Military Transport, to be dropped off at 10,000 feet over the Nevada desert"! Excersion price does not include tax, license and applicable fees.

---Helen_5378 on 4/23/07
When Jesus shed his blood the curtain in the temple was torn into and all flesh was sanctified at that time, Not saved just sanctified, it made it possible for God to pour his Spirit out upon all flesh, so he could draw all men to Jesus the Son of God.Every man is given the measure of faith, to be saved and by his own decision, he is saved or damned. Therefore men Go to hell for not believing in the Son of God, their Sins are paid for.
---Exzucuh on 4/23/07

You cannot take anybody else into the holy of holies. You have to be born-again to go into the holy of holies. Re Elvis Presley: I read that when he died he was reading something about Jesus Christ. He could be in heaven, but we will have to wait till we get there. For the skeptics, Jesus saves everybody who calls out to Him.
---Helen_5378 on 4/23/07

There's an ad for his all greatest hits collection on TV. You better order it, Donna. From thin Elvis all the way through the PB blues days. (Peanut Butter bloat)

There's Elvis! Oh no, thats just a demon disguised as Mary. Same thing.
---Bing on 3/14/07

Elvis was born in 1935 so he would be 72 if he had lived.
---marya3575 on 3/11/07

Never heard that one Helen. However I have a hard time believing that he could have been reading anything, stoned out of mind and hanging over the toilet throwing up. The 'King' died over the 'throne.'
---NVBarbara on 3/10/07

That's better than BR's 31. Does anyone remember Carvell's fudgy the Whale. Dairy Queen was better though. Especially those strawberry Sundies with the vanella custard. Hot fudge was a hit too. Do you think there will be ice cream in heaven? Most likly there will be something way better.

NVBarb, at first glance, I thought you said Elvis died of 38 different flavors of ice cream. Too much Ben and Jerry's.

The real reason is awful.
---PB on 3/9/07

I read once where Elvis apparently was reading an article about Jesus when he died. If that is true, then it is possible that Elvis is in heaven.
---Helen_5378 on 3/10/07

Jesus died by choice sinless for all our sins.
Sadly, Elvis died in a bathroom with 38 different drugs in his system!

Have you ever seen 100 Elvisis together? I really like them Evlisisis, especially the Asian ones. They look so real! I couldn't tell the difference. They look like Elvis clones. You aint nothin but a Sushi Bar!

Elvis wanted to experience a lot of things.

Didn't Elvis eat peanut butter sandwiches with bannanas? The flyin Elvis's are adding beans, to give them more lift, so they can stay in the air longer. plus, you never miss a photo op, because you always know when their coming.

Yep John, that is Alan Rickman, a very talented actor.
I didn't have room on the other blog, but another GREAT movie is "A Beautiful Mind" with Russel Crowe, ALSO a true story.

"Ve vant ze money Lebowski." That movie is hilarious, I like the guy that does the narration. My favorite movies are comic book movies. Star Wars is, of course, the greatest six movies ever made. I like dry British humor like Monty Python. Most of the movies that are made today are really just old remakes, that is why I call the current genereation the "Regurgitation Generation."
---Ryan on 3/7/07

Alan Rickman. where did I hear his name? Was it Die Hard, and Quigly down under, another good movie. I have Hitchiker and N. Dynamite. I like off beat. speaking of off beat. My favorite cartoon strip is "Pearls before Swine". Have you seen it? It's a hoot.
---John on 3/6/07

One of my favorite movies is Oh Brother Where Art Thou too.
I loved the music and the acting was excellent.
I especially enjoyed the scene where they thought their friend had been turned into frog, I laughed until it hurt, more than once:)
---lynet on 3/6/07

Yes, I liked Mr. Dentiny. Did you see "Amos and Andrew?" That was a hoot! Dabney Coleman played such a goofy part, also a good message in the movie.
Recently I re-watched "Something The Lord Made" GREAT movie, and a true story. Mos Def and Alan Rickman played the leads.
Speaking of Mos Def, I do have my own copy of "Hitchiker's Guide To The Galaxy." Goofy and SO funny. I remember reading that book in college, HAD to have the film!

I loved Oh, Brother Where Art Thou! It was so hilarius. It reminded me of some of my hillbilly relatives down in southern Oklahoma. Y'all know what I mean???
---Susie on 3/6/07

Yes, I like those movies, but Raising Arizona is one of my all time Nick Cage favorites, that and "The Family Man". Have you ever seen "Mr. Destiny" with Jim Belushi? That's another one, and it has a good message. I live about an hour drive from where they shot that old corner bar scene where Jim Belushi's character, broke down with his car. It's in Winston Salem. I drove by it, and all it is, is a run down abandoned building now.
---John on 3/4/07

O Brother Where Art Thou, excellent.
Raising Arizona, funny, funny.
---PB on 3/4/07

Lets see if we really are 'twins' or not John! One of my favorite movies with Cage was "Raising Arizona." I love the quirky humor of the Coen brothers! (Similar to dry British humor,like 'Monty Python.') I'm sure I've seen "Oh Brother where art thou" a min. of 6 times. "The Big Labowski" has too much crude language in it, but I have watched a 'cut version'..LOVE it! The Dude abides....

I love that movie John, Nick Cage is a crack up! There is EVERY kind of Elvis in Vegas! Yep, ones that parachute, which BTW you can jump with them and he will perform your wedding in the air, or in a hot air balloon. You can have a wedding in a helicopter with an Elvis pilot. The Little White Chapel has several 'Elvi' that drive limos, you can also get married at the drive thru window by an Elvis! FAR too much info!
---NVBarbara on 3/4/07

Barbara, I have that DVD "Honymoon in Vegas" with Nicholis Cage, it's one of my favotites. I love the 'Flyin Elvis' scene. This might sound like a dumb question, but do they have them in Vegas? The ones that jump out of a plane.
---John on 3/3/07

I believe Elvis let pressures of the World get to him; THAT is why HE died. If Man draws closer to the Bible, then He is fulfilled in a deeper relationship with God.In II Corinthians 5:7 we are admonished to "walk by Faith,not by sight'.
Presley sang songs like "in the Ghetto" or "crying in the Chapel". I do feel that he was not as close to following their meaning in his Life, as he should have done.

The Holy of Holies== When I first saw this I thought about the Old Testament Days. Then I remember, AH-Jesus. Christ died, and opened a new way to God. God, in order thereunto, to rend that veil of guilt and wrath which interposed between us and Him. God's wrath is still upon the Wicked until He saves whomever He saves. You cannot take someone into the Holy of Holies, we each must go alone.

Susie-you are a sweetheart. You have a beautiful spirit, but I noticed you simplify things to the point where you water down the word.

For example, you say: *Once we accept Jesus, we are in the Inner Court*

Susie, where is that in scripture? Where does it say that in the scriptures. I do love you dearly, but you water down the word so much that it becomes truth mingled with opinion. Please try not to do that. We are not judging you, we love you, but PLEASE don't water down the word of God.

I gag on peanut butter when I hear Elvis was the King.

You can't take anyone into the Holy of Holies, and if you think you can, you have a bigger ego than Elvis.
---PB on 2/16/07

Yes, Susie knows that the only way to come to the Father is through the Son. She also knows when people have been reading way too many books by Word of Faith authors. So many books out there trying to explain something that is so simple. We don't have to go through anything except the Blood of Jesus to get to the Holy of Holies. Once we accept Jesus, we are in the Inner Court.
---Susie on 2/16/07

donna6598: God Bless! I see the outer court, inner court and through the veil something like this. Jesus is the:
Way=Outer Court
Truth=Inner Court
Life= Through the veil, that is His flesh is the New and LIVING Way. (Justified by His Blood, and Saved by His Life, His RISEN LIFE). That means one must be Crucified with Christ, and raised up with Him a New Creation, to Live this New and Living way. Ye must be Born Again. ***Romans 6

The Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus has set us free from the law of sin and death. Romans 6.

Jesus made the way for Eternal Life, That New and Living way through the veil, that is, His flesh.
Do you know when Jesus died on the Cross, and His side was rent, so was the veil in Solomon's the exact same time, indication the way to God had been opened. No one can come to the Father except through tthe Son!
God Bless Donna! I knew you knew this! Does Susie?
---kathr4453 on 2/16/07

kathr4453-You are right, I stand corrected. He doesn't do that when someone is in the outer court. However, I was referring to Jesus pouring out His love upon the woman at the well, upon the woman caught in adultery, upon Mary and Martha when he raised Lazareth from the dead.
So forgive me for not clarifying that. He can touch people's hearts who are in the outer court. I was stupid for not explaining what I meant and I got judged for it. Thanks for the correction and rebuke! I receive it in love.

Donna...You are confusing the Holy of Holies in the Old Testament Tabernacle with the reality that Jesus died on the cross for us. We no longer have to worry about a curtain hiding the Holy of Holies. The scriptures say that the curtain was ripped when Jesus died for us. We can now approach HIM directly at a moment's notice without hesitation. No need to go through long, drawn-out incantations. He is right there with us at all times. We just have to reach out to HIM.
---Susie on 2/15/07

If a person asked me to take him to the Holy of Holies, I would tell him that Jesus is the answer for the world today. He is the only answer. I would make sure that the person knew Jesus.

---kathr4453 on 2/15/07

Susie, the Holy of Holies is the innermost court where the Lord God of Israel is. In the Old Testament, only the Levites could enter there to worship Father God. Today, Jesus made a way for us to enter by His shed blood. It's the innermost place, the holiest place you can meet God and worship Father God in "Spirit and in Truth." Remember when Jesus said, "The true worshippers shall worship in Spirit and Truth." That's in the Holy of Holies.

I don't know about Elvis but the reason many are so quick to judge others is a proud spirit combined with no fear of God. If they truly feared God they would realize they could be judged by judging others and they would be humble enough to not answer what they don't know. Let your yea be yea. In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin.
