WARNING: I'm expressing my views on here about the movie i recently watched. The guy that wrote the movie, said God revealed the things in the movie to him. If u think it's not true, that's between him and God. I won't condemn him, let God be the judge of that. PLEASE, DON'T READ/ COMMENT IF U HAVE NOTHING MEANINGFUL TO SAY BUT TO INSULT OTHERS. Of course, i don't agree with everything he said in the movie, but for the most part i think he's right on point.
Before y'all crucify me, i just couldn't think of an appropriate title for this post. Just heard that there was another plane crash in Nigeria. Plane was flying to Sokoto from Abuja. Last week, marked a year that the Bellview plane crashed. This is the third crash in Nigeria in 12 months. I don't know what to say, all i know is that we (Nigerians and friends of Nigeria) need to start praying for our dear country, 'cos something's really not right somewhere. We need to cry out to God and rely on him fully. The Sultan (king) of Sokoto, Alhaji Maccido and his son were among those that died. May the soul of the departed rest in peace with the Lord- Amen.
Yesterday, the youth group at church watched this powerful movie titled, "The truth behind hiphop" by Craig Lewis, an African American (pastor). Everyone needs to watch that movie. 'Twas powerful. Anyways, i'd try to summarize what i got from the movie. According to Craig, God revealed these things to him. First of, he analyzed some of the lyrics of popular hiphop songs, and believe me nothing on there glorifies God. Then he further explained how the devil is tryna use improved (not new) ways to win souls to his kingdom thru music. Remember Satan was called Lucifer (meaning sun of the morning, i think?) when he was still an angel of God, and his only duty was to make music, that's the only thing he was equipped for to the extent that pipes were built into his body. Anyways, when he was cast out from heaven only his name changed to Satan, but he still had the ability to make music. Satan is anti-Christ and he does everything to compete with God, but he's obviously a counterfeit!
So Satan's strategy is to get the unsuspecting thru music. Music is a faster medium for one to learn. As a child, reciting ur ABC's wasn't easy to remember until u sang the song Aye-Be-Cee-Dee-Eee-Ef-Gee... The thing with music is that subconciously, u're soaking up most of the things being said. Why do u think advertising folks spend millions of dollars on jingles? Next time u attempt to listen to that song, pay attention to the lyrics and if it doesn't glorify God, please i beg u, drop it. Don't listen to it! Guard ur heart with all diligence, for out of it are the issues of life. Garbage in, garbage out. Be careful what u feed ur eyes, ears and every body part.
Even before watching this movie, i always cautioned my cousins about some of the music videos they see on TV. What most of them talk about is sex, murder, money and before u know what's up, youngsters want to dress like those in the music video, they want to shake their hips like them. U can't put garbage in and expect God to dwell within u, just doesn't work like that. God is pure. He's spirit and those who worship him must do so in spirit and truth. Anyways, back to another week. Hope everyone has a blessed week. Till i come ur way again loaded with gist (hopefully) remain blessed folks.
