Is There Such a Thing As Culture In Gospel and Church Music?

On the Janet Mefferd Radio Show, the subject came up about culture in gospel and church music when two callers identified themselves as African Americans.  Let us be very clear with you, there is no such a thing as culture when it comes to gospel and church music, because it is God's music and it does not belong to the world. When music is created by God through appointed and gifted musicians and composers, it is directly from Him, but when music is created by man, that is man-made, it has a culture that is similar to Satan's music in the world.   

When did the subject of culture come up in gospel music?  Simply, when the rebellion of the black church and gospel music artists began to overshadow anointed music within the gospel music industry and the Pentecostal, Baptist and AME churches.  When those particular churches became corporate, they accepted the excuse of culture being the reason to allow church music to mutually collaborate with worldly secular music.  Can we tell the whole truth?  Back in the day, church music in black and white churches did not include rock or hip hop.   Neither race can ever say that is their roots.   Specifically in the black church, they cannot ever claim their culture is hip hop, because when their ancestors were enslaved in America, there was no such a thing, it was only spirituals that saved them from the dominion of their slave masters.  If you notice, hip hop gospel has not been strong enough to influence complete deliverance, it retains the spirit of idolatry.   Fans glorify gospel artists as superstars instead of glorifying God.  They are incapable of enjoying their gospel music idols as messengers of Christ, because most gospel artists do not represent themselves as ministers, only entertainers.  Therefore, culture is obsolete in God's Kingdom.

In God's Kingdom, there is not spirit of idolatry, witchcraft or carnality.   In God's Kingdom, there is a spirit of complete redemption to live holy and righteous, not any sort of identity to the world that glorifies and praises Satan.  For example, when Angelica Zambrano allegedly saw Michael Jackson in hell, Jesus did not say it was his culture to dance.   Jesus Christ told Angelica Zambrano that Michael Jackson sold his soul to the Devil and it was demons that was doing the dancing through him, in so many words.  Therefore, none of us can ever say it is okay to enjoy or sing all types of gospel music, because that's our culture.  If it has any similarities to Michael Jackson's music or any other secular music artist like Beyonce, Rihanna, Jay-z, Willow Smith, Usher, Madonna, Brittney Spears...it has nothing to do with culture, it is not God's music and as a Christian you are not allowed to sing, listen to it or even create it.

So is there any sort of culture in gospel and church music?  Absolutely not, only music that is predestined by God and His angels is what we are created to enjoy.  Gospel music that only focuses on glorifying Jesus Christ, no man nor woman.  For example, spirituals was strong enough to deliver slaves many years ago in America, because it touched the heavens and God could understand the sincerity of the hearts of those whom yearned to know Him.  However, most church and gospel music of today is all about fame and fortune and it is not strong enough to deliver any soul out of bondage.   It must be strong enough to relate to God only, because He cannot understand music that is similar to Satan worshipers and those who idolize them.   He can only comprehend gospel and church music that completely praises and worships Him.  In the Holy Bible, God's Word lets us know He is a jealous God (Exodus 20:5).   Now, can you imagine how God must feel at all of those who claim culture is the reason why they must have hip hop gospel or christian rock even within church music?   Those two genres identify with the secular world, it has nothing to do with Jesus Christ.  If you cannot live without culture of what you claim is hip hop gospel or christian rock in your gospel or church music, then you do not need it.  No culture should ever take away from God's glory, because if it does it should not be included in the gospel music industry or church music.  Furthermore, God has His own music, He does not need to identify with Satan's music to save the world.  Neither should you need any music similar to secular artists to profess salvation.  If you are truly a child of God, you should desire to be completely holy and righteous.   

We are living in such an evil age of those who claim they are saved, but cannot sit in a church service that does not have hip hop or rock music.  Shame on the gospel music artists or shame on the church who has collaborated with them to influence the youth as though Jesus Christ is not exciting without hip hop or rock music during His time of praise and worship in church or even at a concert.

Edwin Hawkins Advertises His Family's Cafe On Myspace

Now, this is the type of thing we know God is expecting among gospel artists.   He wants them to be business minded, not just always wanting to put on a show as though that's all they can do, if that much.  God wants gospel artists to stop seeking fame and fortune off of His music, although He knows you have got to live.   Therefore, if you desire to make a living as a gospel artists seek no more to fortune by selling your music, because you should be doing it for God only.   The Hawkins Family is showing their many talents and this one just may make them all a fortune, so they can go down in history as not just a family of gospel artists, but also entrepreneurs.   Let us pray that many more gospel artists follow in the footsteps of The Hawkins Family.  Surprisingly, they opened this cafe back in 2010, after the home-going of Bishop Walter L. Hawkins, founder and pastor of the Love Center Church.

This is just awesome.  You see Bishop Walter Hawkins, ex-wife Tramaine's mother had a catering service and restaurant for many years.   Lois The Pie Queen is the name of it and Tramaine is now carrying on her mother's business.   So now, we see her late ex-husband's family can also offer delicious food to eager customers who no doubt are going to enjoy eating at their cafe.

Furthermore, we have been waiting to hear about more gospel artists going into business for themselves, so they can not seem as though they are incapable of becoming entrepreneurs.  Delite Hawkins Family Cafe is located in the heart of Manteca, California, which is the central valley, the same area near Ripon where Edwin Hawkins yet resides and where the late Bishop Walter Hawkins lived on many acres of land.   This family is really blessed, we just expect for more gospel artists to follow in their footsteps of success and stop using God's music to make them wealthy, because as a gospel artists, you should be doing it just to win souls, that's it.  Furthermore, if you do make money as a gospel artists, at least be smart and invest it into a lucrative business to not only legitimately make you wealthy, but also give jobs to those in need.

You see, God does not give gospel artists a gift to sing and play an instrument, but He gave everyone a mind to be creative and become inventors and entrepreneurs.  The Hawkins Family Cafe could be the birth of many more business locations and they may take it from there.   Who knows.   All we know is The Hawkins Family Delite Cafe is something the Hawkins family possibly have been dreaming about for a long time.

In conclusion this is a recession and gospel artists should be very smart.  As it is an alleged fact, many gospel artists are not financially successful as they used to be, partly because of the recession and mainly because they are no longer singing gospel music, God's way.

Grammy Award winner hopes to cook up new hit with DeLite Cafe



Edwin Hawkins is cooking up what he hopes will be another smash hit.
But instead of a recording studio, the Ripon resident will soon be whipping up a cuisine with that gourmet

Please Keep Blessing Us With Your Music, Wess Morgan

We heard this beautiful song by Wess Morgan and we were blown away.  It's called Pray, Praise, Fight an encouraging song to endure our daily trials.   This song was not the only thing that touched us, it was Wess Morgan's awesome voice, very powerful and full of the anointing.   We say, please keep on blessing us with your music, Wess Morgan.

We cannot find many African American gospel music artists or even white Christian music artists who can sing the way Wess Morgan sings and blesses us with such awesome music.   His gift is very unique in an age that barely gives us such anointing through singing songs of Zion.  We pray we hear more of this sort of anointing among those who claim to be singers for Jesus Christ and not Satan.  Will those who truly represent Jesus Christ, please stand up?  We want to hear more anointing in gospel and christian music, not idolatry and carnality.  We sincerely hope Wess Morgan does not change and allow God to keep using him to bless us.

In this song, we hear Wess Morgan expressing how we can resist the Devil, which we having been longing for in more gospel and christian music for so long.   

Listen to Wess Morgan's Song, Pray Praise, Fight

Singer Kelly Price vs New Light Church Infringement Case Dismissed, Report Say

Kelly Price Loses Case in Copyright Infringement

In 2010, we posted a report on The New Light Christian Center Church pastored by Bishop I.V. Hilliard and his wife Bridgett Hilliard  of Houston, TX allegedly used a song without permission by singer Kelly Price.

R&B/Gospel Singer Kelly Price filed a lawsuit against mega church leader Bishop I.V. Hilliard, Bridgett Hilliard and daughter Preshea Hilliard along with the New Light Christian Center Church.
Kelly Price says they were making money from her song "Women Who Win", without proper licensing and permission.

The court documents that she filed in July 2010 state that The Hilliards requested a 'synchronization license' to use the work but was rejected. Allegedly, New Light decided they were going to use the song.

Price accused them of not just singing the song at church one Sunday morning. They were accused incorporating it and monetizing from the idea and concept of the song as well.

Jennifer Knapp, Christian Singer Is Allegedly Proud To Be a Lesbian, But God is Not Happy

We do not know why this christian singer, Jennifer Knapp came out on Larry King to admit she is a lesbian, because God is not happy.  He informed us in His Word that all who turned to same sex relationships will not enter into the Kingdom of heaven.  So, her coming out on national television may have deceived her to think she is so free, but Lord knows, she will get the worst shock of her life when her time is up.  Jennifer Knapp allegedly bragged about loving her girlfriend while being a child of God.   But how is this so, when the Word of God has scriptures that oppose the gay and lesbian lifestyle?   You can not be Christian and gay or even Christian and lesbian.  Certain scriptures we will show you at the end of this post.   However, this question applies to this particular subject, why weren't there enough Christians to combat Jennifer Knapp's alleged pride as a lesbian on national television?   She should not have been able to go on Larry King without being reminded of these following scriptures at the end of this article.

The most scariest thing about this situation of people come out of the closet as gay gospel artists or christian artists is that there have been actual testimonies of people who went to hell and saw souls crying out in the lake of fire, which was especially for homosexuals.   They were crying and screaming and pleading with Jesus Christ to let them out of the lake of eternal fire and damnation.   We will reveal Mary K. Baxter's testimony at the end of this post, she was one of the people who witnessed this horrific tour with Jesus Christ in hell, but before we do so, we have more to say.

We love these souls, but because they are so deceived to think they are really free to come out of the closet, we must rebuke them.  We cannot love people without forewarning them about God's wrath.   We do not care if you are a gospel artist, christian artist or just a person who claims to be saved and attend church, you must not be so naive to think Jesus will allow you to be gay and a christian.   There is no way you can do so, because sanctification means you are being completely holy and righteous without blemish.   Although, as Christians we make mistakes, we are not off the hook when we sin on purpose as though we are so proud for the world to know God will let us in His Kingdom on judgement day, no matter who we sleep with or even no matter how many people we sleep with, God's Word is not a lie.   It does matter and if God's Word forewarned us to not be attracted to the same sex and we do it anyway, we will have to give an account to God for the evil deeds we have done in our lifetime.  How dare we ever think we can bargain or negotiate with God, just because we do not call ourselves secular artists are sinners? If you are doing what secular artists or sinners do, you are going to hell and you will never get out.   So, it pays for Jennifer Knapp and whomever else to get it right before it is everlasting too late.   We do not like it when gospel artists or christian artists go on national television to make it look like God will pardon sins just because of whomever they are, it is not fair to God or even His Son, Jesus Christ.   We must not only fast and pray against this foolishness, but we must stand strong against the demonic force that deceives people through those particular souls who claim to be born again Christians, sharing the gift of music while admitting they have given themselves over to homosexuality.  The Devil is a liar and he comes to steal, kill and to destroy, but because God said in His Word He came that we may have life and have it more abundantly (John 10:10), we cannot allow Satan nor His demons to flaunt through Christian singers or gospel artists like Jennifer Knapp, because there are no homosexuals in God's Kingdom and no where in the Bible does it say, He will excuse gay, lesbian, transgender or bisexual people.   

It is a sin to be a homosexual and these following scriptures are not just for sinners, but also those who claim to be spreading the Word of God through song like Jennifer Knapp and many other christian and gospel artists or even hypocritical souls in the pulpit whom spread the Word of God as a minister.   We say shame on the christian community for not speaking out against the demon of homosexuality in love, regarding Jennifer Knapp coming out on Larry King.  You may say, why speak out?  It's so simple, because, if Jennifer Knapp or any other christian or gospel singer miss heaven, we are not responsible, they cannot say no one forewarned them and when they have to stand before God, it will be everlasting too late.   Too late, is what Jesus Christ said to many people whom cried out in hell when Angelica Zambrano gave her testimony.

God's Holy Scriptures Against Homosexuality
  • 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 - "Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God."

  •  Leviticus 18:22 - "Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable." 

  •  Leviticus 20:13 - "If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads."

  •  Romans 1:26-27 - "Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion." 
If you want, you may hear Jennifer Knapp Allegedly Coming Out As a Lesbian on Larry King, but please beware, God is not pleased when you listen to Mary K. Baxter's Testimony About Her Previous Tour to Hell with Jesus Christ.

Le'Andria Johnson's Label Mate Amber Bullock Releases New Album

Amber Bullock New Album
We have here yet another artist who has signed to Matthew Knowles' Music World label. We are are really afraid to see how this artist may turn out knowing how Le'Andria Johnson seemed to allow the label to manipulate her into singing love songs and not gospel songs. Though Amber Bullock has a jazzy sound to her work, that alone opens up doors for secular vibes to come right on in. Don't get us wrong, people can sing what they want but leave the world's music out of the church- that's the issue.
Here's the report on her new album:
Amber Bullock stole the hearts of this season’s record breaking “Sunday Best” audience and she’s about to steal the hearts of gospel music lovers everywhere with her debut Music World release, Thank You.
Like her label mate and fellow “Sunday Best” champion Le’Andria Johnson, Bullock originally just took a chance when she tried out for the show that would change her life.
Never expecting to win, Bullock blew away the competition with her jazzy-style vocals that left her highly esteemed gospel-jazz vocal coach Kim Burrell calling her a natural.
Wow! By getting praise from Kim Burrell, known for her sexy gospel/jazz style, this was a problem to start with.
Describing her experience on the show, Bullock told BREATHEcast, “It was absolutely amazing. One of the best [experiences] in my entire life.”
Signing onto Matthew Knowles’ Music World, the young singer says she is living out her dreams of being a professional musician.
Amber Bullock says she’s proud of  her new album and its something she’s sure her fans will love.

Gospel Music Celebrites Is Idolatry : Mary Mary To Launch Reality Show Does Not Surprise Us

In the eyes of God today's average gospel artists are living their lives as celebrities in nothing more than idolatry in the eyes of God.   These gospel artists, Mary Mary do not surprise us by launching their reality show.   Therefore, today's average gospel artists are seeking fame and more fortune, instead of seeking God and righteousness.   Since when do gospel artists launch a reality show, instead of separating from the world does not glorify God. Erica & Tina Campbell have been known to flaunt themselves as though they are a part of the world and not among holy children of God and if they do not repent for their greed for fame and fortune, do not be surprised of God's wrath.  God is not just tired of today's modern age church, He is also tired of gospel artists claiming to love Him, but not fully submitting to His will.  What is God's will?  To fully separate from the world.  Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him (I John 2:15).

Mary Mary has allegedly announce they wish to collaborate with Beyonce who is not a gospel artist and an alleged Satanist.  We also spotted Mary Mary on camera allegedly doing the Corna hand signs and wearing certain outfits that retain the symbols of Devil worship.   So, you tell us, is it okay for these two gospel artists to launch their reality show?   Absolutely not, they have not seem to be in line with God's Kingdom by allegedly showing off their connection with Satanic music artists in the world.   Therefore, the only way it would be okay is if they would completely remove themselves from the gospel music industry.  It is hypocritical to say you love God and as a gospel artists you continue to seek more fame as though you are a celebrity.   Gospel artists have no business being celebrities, because being a celebrity is a form of idolatry.   People idolize you, instead of wanting to be like God and this is not God's desires.  This upcoming reality show may seem like it is going to be exciting to their fans, but is only a demonic tool to get these souls more focused on Mary Mary and not God, not unless we see and hear them invite souls to Jesus Christ on their upcoming show and we doubt it.

God wants souls saved from the music of gospel artists whom claim they are making music for His glory, not to glorify the gospel artists.  What will be the theme of Mary Mary's reality show, all about how their music have supplemented their lavish lifestyle or to win souls for Jesus Christ?
