In her analysis of Madonna's haltime Super Bowl program, Christian writer Sharon K. Gilbert describes in detail the program's occult pagan symbolism. Gilbert writes that in the final scene, "The platform rises into the air while the chorus dances and sings with them. (In the midnight hour, I can feel your power, just like a prayer, I want to take you thereâ€¦I hear your voice. Itâ€™s like an angel sighing. I have NO CHOICE. I hear your VOICE. Feels like FLYING. I close my eyes, O God, I think Iâ€™m falling. Out of the sky, I close my eyes. Heaven help me!) As she sings these lyrics, the light show forms a black, swirling pit (like a black holeâ€“ABYSS) below the stage. This odd â€˜black holeâ€™ fans out as the choir sings (Itâ€™s like a dream to me!), slowly forming the nations of the world. Madonna leaves the platform, climbing up the upstage stairs, leaving the â€˜Beastâ€™ in sole control of the New World Order."

In Jeremiah 2: 26-29, God speaking through His prophet said to the house of Israel, you have turned away from Me and you say to a tree, Thou art my father, and to a stone, Thou hast begotten me....But where are thy gods, that thou hast made thee? let them arise, if they can help thee...."
The Spirit of God is telling the house of Israel that there is no source for life, soul, and spirit in brute matter....trees and stones, in this instance. God is the Fountain of Life, but the house of Israel has freely rejected His offer of eternal life and instead, by their freely made decision to worship brute matter, they have made themselves into nothing. In the vanity of their pride (idolatry) they have opted for eternal separation from the Fountain of Life, meaning that though souls are immortal and indestructible, they can nevertheless suffer a kind of death for all eternity.
One of the most difficult of Christian doctrines to understand is that of creatio ex nihilo: God's creation of the world, not out of Himself, not out of some pre-existant matter or primal chaos (abyss), but out of 'nothing.' God's creation has its' foundation precisely in this fact: He called (spoke) all things into existence from nihilo---nothing.
The German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche defined nihilism as the death of God. Because Nihilism owes its whole existence to the denial of God, it must---if it is to remain logically consistent---also deny life, soul, and spirit, and not just God and Christian Truth.
Proud, defiant, spiritually dead but logically consistent Nihilists must make themselves into nothing. The Abyss of Nothing is their father, it is what they worship and where they will spend eternity.
Jesus Christ said choose life so you may live. In rejecting the Triune God Nihilists choose death, meaning that in this world they are the walking dead beneath whose feet yawns a downward-spiraling vortex issuing into the void...the outer darkness.....hell.
The abyss awaits Madonna as well unless she repents and turns back to God the Father for in place of the Fountain of Life Madonna embraces the Kabbalah's 4,000 year old Gnostic conception of an imaginary physical being of which contemporary pagans say, "Thou art my father":
"The original writings of the Kabbalah...were based on a series of secret, sacred visions. These were eventually described in the Zohar - Book of Splendour, an arcane text that offered a complete philosophy for life and learning, including versions of yoga, astrology and numerology.... Nowadays it appeals in particular to devotees of New Age spirituality, and its teachings have been applied to all aspects of modern life, from office politics, to sex, to attitudes to death."

Believing herself very savvy and spiritual, the reality is otherwise, for by her own choice Madonna has made herself into nothing. And as she danced above the abyss in the closing scene of her program, she was blissfully unaware that she was testifying to the fate that awaits her: the void of outer darkness.
Denying the transcendent Triune God does not mean that you are free of Him. If you freely choose against worshipping and serving Him, you will nevertheless serve Him, often as a precautionary tale to others of what not to do. In Madonna's case, she is a bright neon sign blinking an ominous warning: "Beware! Beware! Do not do as I have done or you will suffer the same consequences!"
