I am so burdened 2night I’m going to tweet a ridiculous amount of thoughts. I am “no one,” but I’m convinced Satan is not on vacation.
Satan is at work but, the mighty fortress is our God! I feel like Jeremiah. It’s not elsewhere, but something right among us is off!
Thus says the LORD, “I remember the devotion of your youth, your love as a bride, how you followed me in the wilderness… (Jer 2:2)
Thus says the LORD “What wrong did ur fathers find n me that they went far from me & went after worthlessness, & became worthless? (Jer 2:5)
The priests did not say, ‘Where is the LORD?’ Those who handle the law did not know me; the shepherds transgressed against me;…(Jer 2:8)
Jeremiah’s sayin God is not at fault, His ppl are. The “leaders” and the “led” r off base (prophet & priest). They’ve both drifted from Him.
I’m sure they couldn’t detect it. Their assessment of themselves was that they were still as “on fire” as ever. But they were all deceived.
When I think about CHH I think about its “leaders,” and its “audience.” How far it’s come & where it’s potentially going. So much potential!
CHH can b a contingent of ppl joined by their desire 2see Jesus exalted & His interests represented n hip hop fashion. We want Him 2 smile.
Some desire 2 make central the spread of the gospel or the explicit exaltation of Jesus b/c they “luv” hip hop. They want what’s best 4 it.
We luv Hip Hop enuff to proclaim Jesus 2 it b/c we believe hell is real. We luv Jesus enuff 2 leave the world 4 Him, b/c He’s worth that.
They think…How will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard?
And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? Hip hop is perfect 4 the “sent” ones.
I could go into what “used 2 b” & “how we used 2 do this or that,” but that would sound old/irrelevant. Some know what it is & some don’t.
If u sense that God would b majorly glorified by being injected into Hip Hop thru His redeemed ppl. Tell it often and tell it well. Rep Him!
Let’s filter our thoughts, words, & deeds thru the Bible so that we will echo Him & not unwittingly contradict Him. Decrease 4 His sake.
Weep 4 our world! Do not luv the world or it’s things. This is basic Christian stuff, but never more relevant than now, and to us in CCH.
Luv the brethren. Honor one another. Take every thought captive to til they obey Christ. If/when u sin…repent…go and sin no more.
In Jesus believers have an Advoçate who satisfies the Father and Judge. Hip hop doesn’t have this, but we can let them know it’s available.
CHH can be God’s choice vessel for this precious mission. We can be his tool, His missionary. Go hard for Jesus friends. He is with u!
