“Now that I’m in service to Christ, my job is to spread the gospel, to let people know what Jesus has done for me,” West explained. “I’ve spread a lot of things. There was a time I was letting you know what high fashion had done for me. I was letting you know what the Hennessy had done for me. I was letting you know all these things but now I’m letting you know what Jesus has done for me.”

“And in that, I’m no longer I’m no longer a slave,” West continued. “I’m a son now. Son of God. I’m free through Christ.” – Breitbart.com, 10/25/19

 

ChristianPost.com reports that

Kanye West celebrated his new Gospel album reaching No. 1 on the Billboard charts and American Bible Society says they are committed to giving Bibles to any of his fans inquiring to read the Word.

With nine studio albums to his credit, West’s Jesus is King, released October 25, is his ninth consecutive album to debut at the top slot of The Billboard 200. The chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in America. West’s ranking will reflect on the chart set to be released on Tuesday.

The rapper and fashion guru is now tied with Eminem for the “most consecutive No. 1’s on the Billboard 200 charts,” says Billboard.

His latest album, Jesus Is King also breaks West’s prior streaming record, giving him his biggest streaming week ever and the fifth largest overall in 2019, at 196.9 million on-demand streams, Billboard reported. The 27 minute music release garnered the second-largest sales week of the year for an R&B/Hip-Hop album, with over 100,000 copies sold.

“Number one in the country right now, number one in the world right now, Jesus is King,” West declared at his Baton Rouge, Sunday Service concert on Friday on Bethany Church grounds. 

“Number one song, number one album and they told me I would (inaudible) if I gave my life to Christ but God is showing out,” he continued. 

“Who’s number one? Jesus is number one!” the rapper declared as his gospel choir sang the chorus “Father I stretch my hands to you.” After the concert, 1,000 people reportedly came to faith in Jesus Christ.

For many years, West publicly projected a god complex through his blasphemous alter ego Yeezus. But in 2019 everything changed for him, and he began his Sunday Service events featuring a gospel choir that reimagined mainstream songs with Christian lyrics. West said he became a born again Christian during this process and has now devoted his life to “working for God.”

Due to the reaction to West’s conversion and his newfound passion to weekly evangelize across the world with Sunday Service concerts, American Bible Society announced that they will send up to 1,000 free Bibles to anyone in the U.S. curious about the historical book and Christian faith. 

“Kanye West’s album has had an immediate effect on the current news cycle. ‘Jesus is King’ was a trending internet search last week with over 1 million queries on Google alone,” said Dr. John Farquhar Plake, director of ministry intelligence at American Bible Society in a statement shared with The Christian Post. 

“Coincidentally, something we’re seeing as a rising trend is that most Americans turn to Google as a de facto spiritual guide. Our goal with this campaign is to give Americans – and, yes, Kanye fans – the opportunity to look for answers to their most pertinent questions at the source.”

Since the release of the album, searches for the term “Jesus” and the phrase “What do Christians believe?” both spiked in the U.S. American Bible Society hopes to aide those searching for answers by offering free access to the Bible.

Rebecca Richman from ABS told CP that anyone interested in receiving a Bible – completely free of charge can do so by November 22 here.

West will reportedly continue to make faith-based music and is gearing up to release a holiday album. In a recent interview with Zane Lowe for Apple Music’s Beats 1, the father of four announced his upcoming Christmas record is titled Jesus Is Born.

“I believe because God has given me a gift that I pray for and so many people love,” West told Lowe, “that if I stop doing it, He might start to take all the things away.”

So, has Kanye West truly been born again or saved?

As someone who has never actually been a fan of him of his music, I have to admit that I was a skeptic at first.

Then, I remembered a big ol’ fisherman named Simon whom, with others, met Jesus one day and was told,

Follow me and I will make you fishers of men! 

So, he did.

And, he was never the same again.

He was not a perfect man.

However, the One who called him from the fishing nets was.

Simon became Peter.

Yes, he lied about knowing Jesus when they led him away. But, he was forgiven and became the rock upon which the church was built.

Kanye’s conversion is no less improbable than Peter’s was.

Americans, especially Christians, have to make a choice in these tough times whether to accept popular culture’s relative morality and situational ethics and allow those who are attempting to “radically change” our Sovereign Nation, given to us by God into a Democratic Socialist Paradise or…

As the Apostle Paul tells us in Ephesians, STAND.

However, you cannot stand without “the full armor of God”. I have found, as have my family and friends, that the better that you are doing, in terms of your Christian Walk, the harder that you will be attacked.

10Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. 11Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. 12For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.…- Ephesians 6:10-12

And, that is what Kanye West has done.

He is indeed a new man in Christ.

We all need to remember that our Christianity as Americans does not and can not end at Noon on Sunday, as we shake the Preacher’s hand and walk out of the sanctuary.

“Onward, Christian Soldiers, marching as to war.”

Because believe me, Americans…we are in one.

Pray for our President.

Pray for our country.

And, pray for Kanye West.

HIs journey in Christ is just beginning.

Kanye Moonwalks Away From Supporting Trump, Exits #Blexit

Ye_fl39mo

FoxNews.com reports that

Kanye West took to Twitter on Tuesday to reveal he’s had enough of politics.

The outspoken fan of President Trump tweeted: “My eyes are now wide open and now realize I’ve been used to spread messages I don’t believe in. I am distancing myself from politics and completely focusing on being creative !!!”

What caused the change of heart? It’s not entirely clear, but in another tweet, he referenced Blexit – a campaign developed by conservative activist Candace Owens aiming to move African American voters away from the Democratic Party. Owens is communications director for the right-leaning Turning Point USA.

In a tweet, the rapper insisted that he hadn’t wanted any involvement with Blexit, and didn’t design the logo on its clothing, despite her claims that he did.

“I introduced Candace to the person who made the logo and they didn’t want their name on it so she used mine,” West tweeted. “I never wanted any association with Blexit. I have nothing to do with it.”

Turning Point USA did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

Other tweets from West on Tuesday referenced several different social issues.

“I support creating jobs and opportunities for people who need them the most, I support prison reform, I support common-sense gun laws that will make our world safer,” one tweet read.

“I support those who risk their lives to serve and protect us and I support holding people who misuse their power accountable. I believe in love and compassion for people seeking asylum and parents who are fighting to protect their children from violence and war,” another post read.

He continued on, expressing his appreciation to those who supported his “ACTUAL beliefs” and “vision for a better world.”

West has expressed his political opinions in the past, including his support of President Trump. The rapper paid a visit to the White House earlier this month, where he met with the president.

“…I believe in music. I believe in love.”

Sorry. I got carried away.

It appears that Kanye has had a “change of heart”.

Why?

Well… perhaps…

  1. His wife, Kim Kardashian told him that they would not get invited to any more of the “great” parties that the Hollywood Elite throw because of his support of President Trump. There could be a more intimate codicil to this theory. However, I do not even want to think about it.
  2. The Democratic Hierarchy got in touch with him and “set him straight”, convincing him to return to the political party that “he is supposed to be in”.
  3. His agent called him and explained to him who his “core audience” was and how his music sales were going to suffer because of his “error in judgment”.

Something had to happen in order for Kanye to come to the conclusion that he was “out of line” in supporting the president.

That is indeed a shame.

The #Blexit Movement is a good thing.

With Black Unemployment at a record low and more and more black Americans walking away from the Democratic Party, one would have hoped that Kanye would have realized the same thing that they did: The Democratic Party has done absolutely nothing for black America.

I’ll take that back. They have done something.

They have encouraged them since President Johnson’s implementation of “The Great Society” to let “Uncle Sugar” take care of them, assuring them that as long as they continued to vote Democrats into public office that they would be “taken care of”.

It has been those black Americans who have broken out of the cycle of government-assisted poverty who have come to realize that the Democratic Party’s “benevolence” was, in fact, a boat anchor, tied to them to keep them from reaching the shores of self-reliance.

By the way, a bunch of successful young black Americans met with President Trump the other day and, according to them, they love the guy.

And, they didn’t feel “used” at all.

They felt empowered.

Trump Meets With Black Americans, Democrats Show Intolerance…Why?

Kanye West meets with Donald Trump, White House, Washington DC, USA - 11 Oct 2018

Yesterday, President Donald J. Trump met with 21-time Grammy Award Winner Kanye West and legendary NFL Running Back Jim Brown in the Oval Office.

To say that the Dems and their Propaganda Arm, the Main Stream Media were not happy about it would be an understatement

Breitbart.com reports that

CNN political commentator S.E Cupp criticized President Donald Trump’s Oval Office meeting with hip-hop star Kanye West Thursday, accusing him of exploiting “a man who’s clearly not okay.”
That sentiment was echoed by CNN’s chief media critic Brian Stelter, who repeated her descriptor of the meeting: “sad.”

Sad. @SECupp said it best about the Kanye-Trump meeting: “That was really sad. I think you had there a man who’s clearly not okay, and a president who’s willing to who’s willing to exploit that.” pic.twitter.com/JuadQFMxkH

Transcript is as follows:

DANA BASH: Kanye probably said it himself when he said ‘Trump is on his hero’s journey right now. He might not have thought he’d have a crazy mother-blanker like me.’ By the way, that’s something that he said at the oval office sitting at the Resolute Desk.

S.E. CUPP: Yeah, what a time to be alive. May we live in interesting times. Look, all jokes aside, I think that was really sad. I think you had there a man who’s clearly not okay and a president who’s willing to exploit that. Worse, to exploit that under the auspicious of race relations and black communities, joblessness, mental health, all these things that ended up in this bucket of issues that were sort of addressed in this free for all. I don’t know if anyone of them was well served by this circus. In many ways, they are the same person, right?

They are both very ego-driven and desperate for attention. They give it to one another. They are using each other for that end goal. I don’t have a problem with Kanye West being a fan of the president. I don’t have a problem with the president using celebrities to expose important issues. But, the problem is I don’t think any of that happened today because today was bonkers. It was crazy, it was off the rails. How could anything be accomplished in that kind of environment with that little seriousness paid to those very important issues?

Really?

Remember Former President Barack Hussein Obama?

As long as he has himself, he’ll never be alone.

Do you want to know why the Democrats and their minions in the MSM and the Entertainment Industry are so upset about the meeting?

It is because the President’s popularity rate among black Americans is growing. As of August, it was up to 36%, per USA Today.

In the past, Democrats have relied on around 97% of black Americans to vote for their Presidential candidate.

This is why they are freaking out over this meeting…and why the producers of Saturday Night Live tried to stop Kanye from wearing his Trump hat in front of the cameras.

America’s Far Left Democratic Party, including the before-mentioned Former President of the United States, are still attempting, what is known in both sports and military strategy, as a “misdirection” play.

While politicians and paid protesters shout about “equality” in front of every television camera that they can get in front of, at the same time, here in the real world, black children are being born into a situation which handicaps them from the start: the burden of an illegitimate birth and the reality of a fatherless home.

How many black children are being born out-of-wedlock?

Among non-Hispanic blacks, the figure is highest, at 72.2 percent; for American Indians/Alaska Natives, it’s 66.9 percent; 53.5 percent for Hispanics; 29.4 percent for non-Hispanic whites; and a mere 17.1 percent for Asians/Pacific Islanders.

These Americans, unlike the majority of us, are growing up without appropriate parental guidance, i.e., no one teaching them “the way in which they should go”

What are the consequences of growing up without a strong Father figure?

How did the once strong Black American Family Unit get torn asunder?

Back in the 60s, President Lyndon Johnson (whose big hand I once shook, at his ranch, as a little boy, after his presidential term) and the Democrats, brought forth a plan, called “the Great Society”. It was decided, in order to ensure that everyone would have an equal opportunity in America, that Uncle Sugar would step in to fill in the gaps.

Two seminal pieces of legislation were passed.

First, the Civil Rights Bill that JFK promised to sign, before his assassination, was passed into law. This Act banned discrimination based on race and gender in employment and ending segregation in all public facilities.

It also helped to cement in stone, minorities’ loyalty to the Democratic Party, which continues to this day.

The second bill that LBJ signed into law was the sweeping ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY ACT OF 1964. It created the Office of Economic Opportunity whose stated purpose was to attack the roots of American poverty. A Job Corps was then established to provide vocational training.

A preschool program designed to help disadvantaged students arrive at kindergarten ready to learn, named HEADSTART, was then established. Then came VOLUNTEERS IN SERVICE TO AMERICA (VISTA), which was set up as a domestic Peace Corps. Schools in impoverished American regions would now receive volunteer teaching attention. Federal funds were sent to struggling communities to attack unemployment and illiteracy.

What Johnson told Americans, as he campaigned in 1964, was that the establishment of this “Great Society” was going to eliminate the problems of America’s poor.

It had the opposite effect.

The Great Society created a dependent class, which, instead of diminishing as it’s members joined the workforce, increased from generation to generation, relying on the federal government to provide their every need.

“Uncle Sugar”, the Democratic Party while holding power in DC, became Mother, Father, Preacher, and Doctor to generations of Americans. This “plantation mentality” continues to this day.

A few years ago, I worked at our county’s State Employment Center Office.

While at the Employment Office, I was able to observe Americans, both Black and White, down on their luck, struggling to find work and survive in this economy. Unfortunately, the overwhelming majority of “unemployed ” who came to this particular office were Black.

I saw Black American Families whose existence living on the Government Dole, had become generational.

It is these people whom Obama and the Democrats have hypnotized into believing that Uncle Sugar loves them, and is their only solution to surviving a stifling existence.

They are so, so wrong.

The strength and vitality of America does not come from the benevolence of a Nanny-state Federal Government.

As the greatest American President of my lifetime, Ronald Reagan said:

The nine words you never want to hear are: I’m from the Government and I’m here to help.

Being enslaved to the Government Dole steals one’s ambition. It takes away any impetus or desire to create a better life for yourself and your family, to challenge yourself to pick yourself up by your bootstraps and pursue the American Dream. It makes you reliant on a politically motivated spider’s web full of government bureaucrats who view you and your family as job security.

I watched American citizens trapped in this web of government bureaucracy, so numbed of any initiative that they once had, that they seemed offended that they actually had to prove that they inquired about three jobs that week in order to keep their “benefits”. Others seemed puzzled that they had to search through the state data base and pick out a job that they wanted to talk to an interviewer about receiving a referral to, and weren’t just simply handed a job when they walked through the door.

Instead of moving forward, by exercising the self-reliance that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. preached so well, these people I saw, were content on being “taken care of” by Uncle Sugar, as if being held down by their own poor, miserable circumstance, was a good thing.

During the Obama Administration, racial division in American became intentionally exacerbated for the purpose of political gain and the results of LBJ’s “Great Society” became the lead story in every television newscast, on every newspaper front page, and on every internet news/political website.

That is why the Democrats are so upset about yesterday’s meeting in the Oval Office and Kanye’s unabashed support of President Trump.

The Democrats profit from a divided America.

Including those who are dead set in somehow ending the time in office of our current President, Donald J. Trump.

Which is very strange to me. You see, those who wish him to be gone have adopted the worn-out tactic of accusing Trump of racism, like Juan Williams of Fox News did last night., which is a very odd tactic to use.

The reason that I say that is because the National Black Unemployment Rate remains at an all time low.

The part of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s magnificent speech about “the content of their character” has been purposefully ignored by the Democratic Party and their minions for several decades, taking a back seat to their all-consuming quest for political power and bulging pocketbooks.

Dr. King’s call for self-reliance took a back seat to their self-serving agenda, a long time ago.

And, that resulted in the purposeful dissolution of the Black American Nuclear Family, a cycle of poverty, and an inability or unwillingness of some to take a risk and to break out of a self-fulfilling prophecy of failure perpetuated by self-serving politicians and “community leaders” who have made careers out of limiting the participation of Black Americans in the American Dream.

No American should be held back from working hard and succeeding simply because achieving the American Dream on their own does not fit into a political party’s self-serving agenda.

President Trump genuinely wants to help.

And, the “New Bolsheviks” of the Far Left Democratic Party simply cannot allow that to happen.

Until He Comes,
