Did Pastor Marvin Winans Have Arrest Warrant Issued on Him?

Pastor Marvin Winans Arrest Warrant


This is just a shame! A prominent pastor and longtime gospel singer like Marvin Winans allegedly has not been taking care of his business. According to the Detroit News, the good pastor was a wanted man. Marvin Winans actually had an active warrant out for his arrest when he was carjacked.

While many Detroit news stations were being prideful and boastful when they covered the news on this well known singer and pastor, they now have to report that their 'man' wasn't so upstanding.

News reports also stated:

Marvin reportedly lost his driving privileges on May 9th after failing to pay 2 tickets issued back in December ... one for impeding traffic and the other from a previous driving on a suspended license incident.

Is Helen Baylor The Only Gospel Artist Who Sees The Demonic Spirit Controlling The Gospel Music Industry?


Please pay very close attention to this article, because we are living in dangerous times.   Whenever we hear of a famous singer like Helen Baylor getting delivered from drug abuse and overcoming painful obstacles in her life and in the secular music industry, it is a testimony.   Then, to hear Helen Baylor admit that gospel music industry is not much different than the secular music industry, it a forewarning for the church to finally wake up and change.   It is time for preachers of today to began preaching holiness or hell, not just to their followers, but also to those within the gospel music industry.   We have been telling you, time and time again, it is time for gospel artists to be real about God's music and stop acting like the celebrities, just so they can get the mainstream music industry's money, God is not pleased.

The pastors, bishops and evangelists are responsible for not preaching against gospel artists being celebrities, because too many of them are trying to be celebrities, themselves.   Too many secular artists are dying and going to hell and it is time for gospel artists to choose who they will serve, God or the Devil.   There is going to come a time when we are going to witness God's wrath on many gospel artists more than ever before, because they are sharing the world's fame and fortune.   They are classifying themselves as celebrities and it is very unfair for them to classify themselves as celebrities and live like celebrities if many celebrities in the world are yet dying and losing their lives.  No doubt, many secular promoters in the entertainment industry like Don Cornelius and secular music artists like Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Chuck Brown, Etta James, Heavy D. and now Donna Summer may not have died before their time, if they would have been approached at least by gospel artists whom were not only going to witness to them, but set an example of true holiness in their presence.   People in the world have got to see a difference in order to change and it does not matter who is not preaching this fact, it must be known.   

Helen Baylor could have been another celebrity dead before her time, but because she knows Jesus Christ, she is still here.  She chose to not only sing for Christ, but live a holy life for Him and her music has been a ministry, not to entertain similar to the world's standards.  God is going to bless her for telling the truth, because it is not fair for her to have witness the same pressure as a gospel artist while not seeing an example of holiness in the gospel music industry.  She should not have had to endure drug addiction and experience a failed marriage of marriage after coming into the gospel music industry.  There needs to be such an anointing, gifted gospel artists like Helen Baylor who once were secular music artist would see and feel a difference among those within the same industry as herself.  Such demonic powers should not be able to spoil gospel artists as wealthy celebrities, so that they will be willing to entertain instead of winning souls for Jesus Christ through their music.   Their music should be so distinct from secular music, many people would experience deliverance from Satanic forces from all types of sins that have them in spiritual bondage.   The gospel music industry is supposed to be so different that when a secular music artists finds Jesus and comes to sing for Him, they do not have to be around those whom are mainly celebrities entertaining for fame and fortune, instead of witnessing as ministers for Jesus Christ. They need to be in the presence of true holiness.  We will still say this, gospel music is a ministry, it is not supposed to be confused with secular music and gospel artists are supposed to be ministers in song, not to be confused with celebrities whom are sinners in world.   

What is it going to take before we see things turn around for God's glory in the gospel music industry?   Is it going to take a string of big names in the gospel music industry to die just like secular music artists before there is a fear of God?   We are forewarning the entire gospel music industry to stop being entertainers and start saving lost souls for Jesus Christ.   If you refused to do so, then just go out in the world and sing for the Devil, because God wants you to be real like he told us in this following scripture: 'So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.'  -Revelation 3:16

Here are some more scriptures we have posted in our previous articles before you watch this following video.  Please take heed, because if you claim to be a born again Christian, then you are supposed to obey what they Bible says, not just go along with the flow, just because all the other gospel artists are doing it and the average minister of this age will not forewarn you.

In I John 2:15 it says this, '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.'

In I Peter 1:16, it says: 'Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.'

Micah Stampley and Matthew Knowles Part Ways: Shouldn't There Be More Gospel Artists Leaving Music World Entertainment?


This sudden news is not surprising to us, because we know God desires for gospel music artists to only work with music managers whom are holy and righteous.   Matthew Knowles has managed secular music artists such as his own daughters, Beyonce and Solange Knowles.   God is not pleased with these following gospel artists whom are still working with Matthew Knowles: Juanita Bynum, Vanessa Bell Armstrong, Le'Andrea Johnson and many other names in the gospel music industry.   Now, we do not know what is behind Micah Stampley departing ways with Matthew Knowles, but all we know is he had no business like the other gospel artists doing business with him in the first place. Therefore, Stampley's decision is God's will.


We have posted previous articles on the issue of gospel artists working with Matthew Knowles and it has annoyed us so much, we have even prayed about it.   Gospel artists are supposed to be God's messengers through His music, not entertainers.  They are supposed to spread the message of Jesus Christ, because gospel music is a type of ministry, but if gospel music artists like Trin-i-tee 5:7 who also work for Mr. Matthew Knowles allegedly, do not see it this way, then they should not be called gospel artists.   They should just simply compose music as secular artists and have no association with church music.   Now, if you recall Matthew Knowles even allegedly mentioned the label, "gospel" should no longer be recognized as a genre, for artists like Trin-i-tee 5:7 maybe that is true, but not for those whom are allegedly living holy lifestyles and spreading God's Word through their music like Juanita Bynum who is also a well-known televangelist and pastor of an Atlanta church, The Wearhouse.


There is a reason these following scriptures were written in God's Word about separating from the world.  The first one found in  I John 2:15 says, '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.'  Then the Bible told us to be holy in I Peter 1:16, it says this, Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.'  Therefore, it behooves all gospel artists to no longer work with music producers like Matthew Knowles whom are known as secular music producers and promoters.

Micah Stampley and Matthew Knowles Part Ways

What's Wrong With Praise and Worship Music? Is It More Holy Than Hip-Hop?


 It cannot be understood there is a specific genre called "Praise and Worship", because for many years that is what gospel music originally was to suppose to be a form of music to only praise and worship God, not for entertainment purposes.   However, since gospel music had changed in the early 90's merging into the hip-hop mainstream arena, the popularity of "Praise and Worship began to spread throughout the sanctuaries, especially the ones that were growing into mega ministries.   Then as we witnessed gospel artists like Kirk Franklin, Yolanda Adams, the Clark Sisters, Mary Mary, Vickie Winans become more secularized in their music, we witnessed "Praise and Worship" music growing along with hip-hop gospel.  More christian music artists began to create songs that identified with a more sophisticated style of praise in their songs as many churches, both white and black became mufti-million dollar corporations.  We are not ignorant to not realize the word was out, if more money was to be made through tithes and offerings, it could no longer be an atmosphere of people allowing the the Holy Spirit to move in such an old-fashion way of having church, especially in the black church.   In the black church, many pastors geared more toward being sophisticated as they welcomed an atmosphere of entertainment.  A popular fad was growing throughout many black churches as they began moving into much bigger buildings.  


Praise and worship music has seemed to have been more of a fad or trend throughout the years, not a form of music to allow the Holy Spirit to flow.  We have have felt the Holy Spirit while listening to many songs created by Byron Cage, Donnie McClurkin, Marvin Sapp, Dr. Judith McAllister, but overall, the anointing has ceased within many church services. As many black churches have grown into multimillion dollar corporations, along with national evangelists enjoying the wealth of their own ministries, many famous christian and gospel music artists have been allowed to influence their fans into a more sophisticated way of praising God.  Many of these praise and worship artists have been blessed with beautiful voices, but there are many whom cannot hold a tune and has been invited to many church conferences.   The entertainment industry within corporate ministries has also allowed many music ministers and praise teams in the church to enjoy their lucrative salaries, even if they cannot also hold a tune.  We have seen praise dancers twirl like they are ballet dancers, waving their flags as the praise teams sang praise and worship songs.  Many of the barefooted praise dancers come twirling in the forefront in their skin tight outfits.  Many of them are young teen girls and delicate teen boys whom reveal too much and prance around in front of the ministers whom are supposed to be focused on God, but we are not dumb to realize there must be an obvious distraction, which could be another reason why so many marriages have been breaking up over the years and homosexuality has been intensified among many whom are church leaders among the various congregations.  In a popular mega church in Atlanta, we have seen young girls touching each other during their dance routine, it seemed like it was a spirit of romance coming between the two of them, which is a demon of homosexuality.   Ask yourself, are these praise dancers praising God or-are they just dancing as a form of art?   The only dance in the church should be is only to praise God, certainly not for entertainment.  It is time to stop this trend that has been going on for many years.

Just as long as the praise team can stand up, look sophisticated and not act too ethnic, they have been able to make money not only as ministers of music and praise singers, but also praise dancers.  Praise and worship is more of a European style of music, which has made more black churches into multicultural mega ministries.  Like hip-hop gospel and christian rock, praise and worship has drawn many church attendees to be more casual in the way they dress.   Praise and worship music has brought on a form of entertainment, not necessarily welcoming God's anointing to flow as He desires for it to do so.


In our opinion, there is nothing wrong with praise and worship songs, because as we have said before people in the sanctified church have always praised God.   However, there is something wrong with a race of people whom God delivered from slavery and oppression to allow more fame and fortune to cause them to change the way they praise God.  There is something wrong with the way praise and worship music has been made into a form of art, which causes a distraction.  Many praise teams in the church cannot sing, which is a sign that they have left the foundation of real gospel music.  Because of the average pastor of mega churches goals have been more focused on becoming the next most famous celebrity preacher, we have not heard many of them nor their choirs be able hold a tune.   The majority of black churches have become so focused on growing into the the next biggest popular ministry, they have shunned shouting in the spirit, tarrying and praising God, the way many of them used to do when they were growing up in the holiness or old fashion baptist church.   Their main reason for praise and worship has been more for show, but not to glorify God.  

In most mega churches and even the smaller ones, their reason for praise and worship has been to attract more of a diverse flock, but it has ruined many of our youth.  Many of the black youth in the church today do not know anything about real praise and worship and that is simply allowing the Holy Spirit to use them His way and not their own.  Many of the youth are lost and have not been blessed to sing like those in the black church, many years ago.   It is extremely sad to see, but this is what damage many pastors whom have been more focused on fame and fortune has caused within the God's church.  Many of these pastors have allowed their churches to grow more into mainstream corporations as though they are motivational speakers giving demonstrations on how their followers can become more successful, but not so spiritual to reach God's anointing to transform their own lives and even the lives of their followers into complete holiness and permanently cease sin.   They have seem to be so ashamed to identify with the history of the black church, they no longer allow the Holy Ghost to flow.   Again, there is nothing wrong with praise and worship music, but there is something very wrong with church services being more controlled by those whom are more focused on corporate praise than a sanctified praise that allows the anointing to reign throughout many sanctuaries.  

What is praise and worship, if the God is not the center of attention and the cross has not been visible in many churches in America and abroad?

Queen Latifah Set To Headline Long Beach Lesbian & Gay Pride Festival: Gospel Artists Stop Associating with Queen Latifah and Other Secular Entertainers


As we all know, Kirk Franklin and other gospel artists starred in the recent movie, 'Joyful Noise' with Queen Latifah.   We have been forewarning gospel artists time and time again that God has scriptures against their association with those whom are not followers of Christ.  If you are a gospel artist, shouldn't you live your life as a righteous believer in Christ?   It is time for gospel artists to realize they are not entertainers and they are not to associate with unbelievers like Queen Latifah who is allegedly supposed to host this year’s annual Long Beach Lesbian & Gay Pride Festival on May 19, according to HuffingtonPost.com.   This is a wake up call for the gospel music industry to return to only associating with gospel artists whom are living holy and decent lifestyles.   Because of carnality among gospel artists whom have combined hip-hop and rock music with their gospel music, God seems to have taken away their anointing and so they are unable to understand how important it is for them not to have any association with secular artists like Queen Latifah.   

It does not matter how much money was offered to Kirk Franklin or any other gospel artist to star in the movie, 'Joyful Noise', no money is enough to save one's soul from hell.  The Bible says in Mark 8:36, it says: 'For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?'  Gospel artists have gotten so far away from being holy in their performances and associations, they do not even know how important it is to test every spirit, be holy and separate from worldly affairs.  In I Peter 1:16, it says this, 'Because it is written, You will be holy; for I am holy.'   How are these gospel artists truly saved if they associate with homosexuals?   God told His children to be holy.  Therefore, any gospel artists whom associates with gays, lesbians or transgender people are not holy neither is their music, although it maybe labeled as gospel music The downfall of the majority of the gospel music industry is that they think that just because they get an offer to appear in a movie with a popular movie star or entertainer, they feel it is a blessing from God or they feel they should associate with other African Americans regardless if they are living for Jesus Christ or not, simply because they are a rich and famous black person whom has paved the way in the entertainment industry.   However, gospel artists are not supposed to concerned with those issues, because it is no longer important of having pride of black people paving the way in Hollywood or the whole entire music and movie industry, the only relevance is that they make sure they are holy and they reach out and get souls for Christ and reaching souls for Christ is not associating with those whom support the gay, lesbian and transgender community. It does not matter how rich Queen Latifah maybe, how much money she has in her bank account or how popular she is among the black elite in Hollywood, she is supporting sin that God does not condone in His Word and gospel artists have no business associating with her.  They should only offer an invitation to cease sin and accept Jesus Christ as her personal Savior, nothing else.

There is a need for ministers whom are truly living holy lifestyles to encourage gospel artists to also follow this specific scripture and preach it in their churches for congregations to acknowledge how God feels about us associating with the world.  In  I John 2:15, it says: 'Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.'  No longer should preachers be concerned about losing members, popularity or how much money is going to be given in tithes and offerings, they are supposed to preach what is right.   Therefore, they should begin instructing their church members to no longer support gospel artists whom associate with secular music artists and entertainers like Queen Latifah.  Also, pastors and bishops should no longer allow gospel artists to perform at their churches if they associate with gays and lesbians, even if they star in a motion picture that may gain them a lot of fame and fortune.

One of the main reasons why gospel artists should distance themselves from mingling with Hollywood celebrities whom support gays and lesbians, is because God's Word does not condone homosexuality.   Look at this following scriptures that should be preached in every church and practiced in every Christian household: 
  • Leviticus 18:22 - "Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable."
  • 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 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."

Queen Latifah Set To Headline Long Beach Lesbian & Gay Pride Festival 

Grammy Award-winning rapper and Academy Award-nominee Queen Latifah is set to headline this year’s annual Long Beach Lesbian & Gay Pride Festival on May 19.

According to the event’s official website, Latifah’s performance will mark her first ever engagement at a Pride celebration.

“From hip to R&B, pop to standards, Queen Latifah is the voice of our generation, and her concert here will be phenomenal,” Long Beach Pride Co-President Pat Crosby said in a statement. “For her to make her worldwide Pride debut here in Long Beach is a tremendous testament to...Read full article, here.
