Hip Hop is now an “official” Religion. A False Religion !!

Rap pioneer KRS-One is the self proclaimed prophet of a new religion: Hip-Hop religion. KRS-One announced he will soon release The Gospel of Hip Hop: The First Instrument, a 600-page book that examines the spirituality of Hip-Hop culture. The Hip-hop artist and founder of the Stop the Violence Movement, KRS-One, aka Boogie Down Production’s “Teacha”, claims his soon to be released spiritual book is the announcement of a new Hip-Hop religion on earth.

“I’m suggesting that in 100 years, this book will be a new religion on the earth,” KRS-One said of his new book, which claims hip-hop to be the world’s dominant new religion.

KRS-One goes on:

Well, I think I have the authority to approach God directly, I don’t have to go through any religion…

I can approach God directly myself and so I wrote a book called The Gospel of Hip Hop to free us from all this nonsense garbage right now. I respect the Christianity, the Islam, the Judaism but their time is up.” To recap: KRS-One’s book is the new Bible, it’s going to be the best selling book on earth, and no matter what God thinks, hip-hop is the new religion of the world.

From Wikipedia:

The Temple of Hiphop is a ministry, archive, School, and Society (M.A.S.S.) founded by KRS-One. Its goal is to maintain and promote hip hop culture. The Temple of Hiphop maintains that hip hop is a genuine political movement and culture, as it has been accepted by the United Nations as a culture. The Temple of Hiphop calls on all hip hop fans to celebrate Hip Hop Appreciation Week, occurring in the third week of May. It encourages DJs and MCs to teach people about the culture of Hip, to write more socially conscious songs, and radio stations to play more socially conscious hip hop. Hip Hop Appreciation Week is celebrated on the third week of May each year. Hip Hop History Month (November), founded by the Universal Zulu Nation, is also recognized.

Idolatry! A message based on 7-10-2010

A few years ago, I would start “getting words” based on the numerical dates.

This past Sabbath was one of those times.

The date was 7-10-10

Here is how it works;

7= the seventh book of the Bible, either OT or NT

10= the chapter

10= the verse

This “formula” has given me some pretty powerful stuff to teach on.

As I was praying about a message this weekend, I looked at

7 in the OT = Judges

10 chapter and the 10th verse

This studied in context was about Idolatry

Now being the “all spiritual” man that I am, I didn’t want to speak on that subject, so I said to my self , “Jake, look at it from the NT”

Well in the NT it comes up

7 in the NT = 1 Corithians

10 chapter and the 10th verse

WELL !! Don’t you know that when there is something IMPORTANT, that it is said twice or more.

When studied in context, this passage was on Idolatry as well.

OK Lord, I get the picture, so now Lord what is it that you want your people to hear?

You know, while there was a “preaching” of sorts this past Saturday morning, it turned into more of a open discussion about this subject of “Idolatry”.

Based on a lot of “blogs” and “forums” going on at many sites, I am seeing a lot of “friction” in the Body.

NOW I know that none of us would like to consider the fact that our own “belief system” could be thought of as an “Idol”, BUT, isn’t it a very REAL possibility for that to be the case??

Just think about it and pray it out. I would love to HEAR from you ALL on this!!

Love in Yahushua, Christ Jesus
Pastor Jake
