First Lady Michelle Obama Talks About Her Love for Gospel Music




The first lady of this country, Michelle Obama expresses her love for gospel music.  We suppose this is why we there are so many on her guests list to perform at the White House.  Although, we may not agree with her husband's support for same sex marriage, we know they believe in God, in order to face this racist country as black people. No doubt, First Lady Obama gets her strength by listening to gospel music in her leisure time.

Gospel music, Obama said in her remarks, is “what helps connect us to God, to that higher power,” according to The Associated Press. “For so many, when times have darkened, when there’s struggle, gospel music is that ray of hope and it gives you that strength.”

In the meantime, First Lady Obama is in our prayers.

30th Annual Stellar Gospel Music Awards Featured Michelle Williams, Kelly Rowland and Beyonce Knowles-Carter: It's Not Gospel Anymore!!!



We were just thinking that the time has come for us to put an end to gospel music.   We do not think there should such a thing as gospel music anymore, because there is no longer a separation from the world. At the 30th Annual Stellar Gospel Music Awards the members of Destiny's Child performed, but we are sure God was not pleased.  One of the biggest reasons why this is offensive, is not just because these are music entertainers from the world, but-Beyonce is married to Jay-z who is an alleged Luciferian and so is she, allegedly, according to the following videos. If we can no longer keep gospel music holy, then shut it all down, immediately.  We want no more of it!!

Pastor Don Shelby Jr. and Family on 'Preachers of Detroit': COGIC???



We are going to start this post off by informing you that it's very wrong for this COGIC family to judge Bishop Corletta Vaughn for her position in the ministry and is not living up to the standard of pure holiness.  If you have been watching 'Preachers of Detroit', you will recall Pastor Don Shelby Jr discussing the name of his children's gospel group, 'The Shelby Five', (as stated on their church website, (Burning Bush International).  First of all, why do they have to model the name similar to 'The Jackson Five, a secular family group?  Why can't the Shelby children allow God to give a name that not only represents complete holiness, but also originality.  




To be honest with you, we've been holding off discussing the issue with this family since 'Preachers of Detroit' Episode 1, but we must finally give you our opinion.   Whenever there was a discussion in the presence of Bishop Corletta Vaughn or without her being present, First Lady Bonita Shelby allegedly mentions in her own words she believes in standing by her man, not being in the forefront. As a COGIC woman since she has such a traditional value as the first lady, why is she and Pastor Don Shelby allowing their children to perform in such a worldly fashion?

Yes, we watched the latest episode of 'Preachers of Detroit' and there was no anointing whatsoever.  Their children were stepping like they were in a nightclub.   We are tired of the hypocrisy of some COGIC people.   We sincerely think we would not have such a problem with carnality among gospel artists, if parents would stop supporting their children's contemporary music. God is not pleased and neither one, Pastor Don nor his wife Bonita, including their daughters can judge Bishop Corletta Vaughn being a female bishop, not unless they get their household right.   Their children do not represent a standard of pure holiness and it doesn't matter to us if they are being backed up by gospel artist, Evangelist Dorinda Clark Cole. What we say about the Shelby's goes for her too, she cannot judge Bishop Corletta Vaughn's position in ministry, if her music or performance is not holy.



There children were singing about 'Tear Down these Walls Lord'.  They want Him to tear them down, they better pray for some anointing first. Furthermore, they don't need to be doing all this dancing with all the fatal issues they've got going on in the city of Detroit.  These children need to be getting serious, not half-stepping in God's Kingdom.

After 64 Years in Church Music Ministry, Dr. Margaret Douroux, Retires


Many of you who grew up on real gospel music recall Dr. Margaret Pleasant Douroux.  She sang with various gospel greats and has known some very well-known people in gospel music industry: Rev. James Cleveland, Pastor Shirley Caesar, Donald Vails, The Barrett Sisters and many others, .  

According to LASentinal.net,  Dr. Douroux was minister of music and adult choir director for the Mount Moriah Baptist Church of Los Angeles for five years and minister of music and choir director for the Greater New Bethel Baptist Church in Inglewood for more than 30 years.  

Many of you in this era of gospel music for the past 20 years need to appreciate those who sang under the anointing or else you would never know the difference.  Most songs that are sung today are not created under the anointing of God, because too many gospel artists are creating songs to sound like secular music to sell records, not call people unto repentance. We agree with Kirk Franklin, it's time for gospel artists to go back to singing songs about the cross.  It's sad that the younger generation today knows nothing about this great woman, Dr. Margaret Douroux.

You can see Dr. Douroux singing next to Donald Vails as he plays the piano while surrounded by various gospel music artists on this following video.

Gospel Artist, Evangelist Dorinda Clark Cole Mourns the Loss of Her Father-In-Law Cleveland Cole



We just want to say we are very sorry for the loss of Dorinda Clark Cole's father in-law, Cleveland Cole.   Although, he lived to be 85 years old, we can imagine it's very painful that he suddenly passed away.  Evangelist Dorinda Cole had a lot with her father in-law, singing and music. She will see him again someday.

In a heartfelt Facebook message, the 57-year-old Preachers of Detroit star wrote, 
“To the most remarkable, incredible, sweet, humbled, man I know, Dad you were the epitome of what a father, grandfather, great grandfather, husband, uncle and father-in-law should be.”

The chart-topping vocalist continued, “I am grateful and thankful to God for allowing me to have the best father-in-law that a woman could ask for. We share a couple of the same gifts such as singing and playing. To see you sit down and play the piano at the house gave me so much inspiration to continue to do what I was called to do. You were my inspiration.”
May Cleveland Cole rest in peace.  Our prayers are with Evangelist Dorinda Clark Cole, husband and her family.  God bless.

J Moss Explains Free Concert Tour, Hearing God Amid Devastation

J. Moss has created a way to show his appreciation to his fans that have supported him.  He's on tour without accepting any money from his fans. It's wonderful to know that Moss is not just concerned about making money, but he's concerned about showing his fans that he's a caring person.

According to ChristianPost.com, this is what J. Moss said: 
"We're having a lot of fun on this RV tour, we've deemed March as the give back month. A month that we could somehow find a way to say thank you to all of our supporters that have been there for us throughout the years," Moss told CP. "Whether it's our music that we've written and produced for other artists, whether it's our artists or whether it's ourselves. People who have held us down, we find a way to show them our appreciation."

We wish J. Moss the best and God bless him for his kindness.

Our Prayers Go Out to Gospel Artist, Pastor Donnie McClurkin, RIP Cheryl McClurkin


We want to send our prayers out to Pastor Donnie McClurkin.  He's just lost another sibling, Cheryl McClurkin.  We know back in 2008, Pastor McClurkin's other sister, Olivia passed away.  Now, Cheryl has just past away after complications of a heart attack.

R&B Diva Fantasia Writes Her First Gospel Song!


Of course, we've heard Fantasia sing R&B as though she is singing gospel songs.  Therefore, hearing her as a gospel artist, has been long overdue.  The singer who was raised in the church is very anointed and gifted to sing, 'real gospel.'  Allegedly, we even heard her say in her own words on the Bobby Jones Show, if she does a gospel album, it will not be worldly.  She's just announced on Twitter, she's written her first gospel song.  We are very sure God is happy.  Of course, He understands love songs between husbands and wives, but He also wants those who love Him and who are musically talented to dedicate songs about Him, all the time.  We're very proud of her.

Pastor Rader Johnson Teaches Apostolic Followers About Not Compromising with The World


Dr. Rader Johnson teaches against people compromising within the body of Christ.   He speaks against men and women wearing earrings, men wearing dreads, mixing church music with worldly music.  Dr. Johnson speaks about making up in our minds to be holy and enforce our flesh to suffer.   

We must be different, no matter how many people expect us to be like them.  Dr. Johnson touches on the subject of why so many people expect you to be similar to them, for instance, wearing sagging pants, listening to rap music in the church and appearing like worldly people.  He says it's a spirit behind it, which is so true.  Dr. Johnson explains the way to crucify the flesh, then it will not be so difficult to feel the presence of God all the time and this includes not compromising with the world.  One of the main ways to crucify the flesh is fasting and he explains, Satan always tempts us whenever we make a decision to fast.  Why?  Because fasting help us to be in full submission to Jesus Christ.  

Dr. Rader Johnson explains why it is so very important to separate light with darkness.  There is a lot of mixing going on the church and this is one of the main reasons why there has been so many issues.

Specifically, Dr. Rader Johnson explains how Lucifer was the most beautiful angel and had a lot of gifts and one of the gifts was being the angel of music.  This is one of the main reasons why so many people who are suppose to be followers of Christ have compromised and bridged the gap.

The only thing we disagree with, is that Dr Rader Johnson allegedly stated that a lot of churches who are not apostolic have comprised, but we have also seen a lot of apostolic churches who believe in being baptized in Jesus name who have compromised and allowed church music to be bridged with rap and hip hop.  In all due respect, Bishop T. D. Jakes who has taught oneness has allowed all sorts of hip hop gospel artists and christian rap artists to perform in his church and at his various conferences, allegedly.  Then there is Bishop Noel Jones, he's allegedly bridged the gap and his roots is the Apostolic church.  Furthermore, there are so many other apostolic churches who have compromised and not preached against hip hop gospel artists.  One of the most popular gospel artists who was raised in the apostolic church is Tye Tribbett.  Therefore, we must be honest, all who have been brought up within the apostolic church have not been distinct from the world and many have compromised in their lives.   We could name so many more, but that's just enough to remind you that the apostolic church has not been perfect.  Dr. Johnson has also mentioned on this following video that one of his friends in the ministry allowed rap music in his church, but there will never be any rap in his church, even after he's gone.   God bless and thanks for reading SCR.

God Is Using Gospel Artist Kirk Franklin, He Allegedly Says the Prosperity Gospel is Wrong

 

God has been really using Kirk Franklin.  Recently, we after the late legendary gospel artist, Pastor Andrae Crouch passed away, he allegedly stated that our songs need to go back to the cross, in his own words.  Now, Franklin has allegedly stated that the prosperity gospel is wrong and he even proved it, in concern for those who do not have enough funds to even travel to some churches. 

According to buzz.eewmagazine.com, “If your theology can’t be preached in a third world country, where a Bentley and a Lear jet probably won’t come to the guy who walked four miles to church for prayer, then your theology is wrong,” he wrote.  

God is going to bless Kirk Franklin for his honesty, because the average gospel artist of this era would be afraid to tell the truth, for fear of not being invited as a guest to perform at popular mega churches around the country.

Choir Directors, Gospel Artists, and the entire Black Church Watch One of Bishop Iona Locke's Best Sermons



Whether you believe in women bishops or not, this woman of God is preaching the truth.  She touches on issues that most preachers are afraid to preach about.   In Bishop Iona Locke's sermon, 'Praise Ye the Lord', Bishop Locke reveals what is going on not only in the gospel music industry, but within many black churches and of course, mega ministries.  

Most church music is very much like the world these days, simply because many preachers are giving permission, for it to occur.   Beloved brothers and sisters, this must stop.  It is time to please the Lord and not those who are just focused on being popular and making money.  You know, worship is suppose to be totally focused on God.  Just listen to how God spoke to Bishop Iona Locke about the worldly dancing and secular music in the church.  God told her, 'we don't mix clean with unclean and holy with unholy.'

If those who are ambassadors, evangelists, pastors, (arch) bishops refuse to correct choir directors, gospel artists and even their managers, then many of our youth will continue to be ignorant of what gospel music really is.  Yes, this means also correcting Mr. Bobby Jones.  Gospel music is not 'classic' or 'old school' as some would want to put an old label on it, but gospel music is authentic, holy and pure.  Therefore, this is the way it should return within the body of Christ and remain that way.  This even goes for worship music in the church.  Furthermore, when you dance like David it ought not to be similar to Beyonce,  Michael Jackson or Justin Timberlake, but totally under the anointing and in the Spirit.  Lyrics and the music should not be similar to Jay-z, Lady Gaga or P. Diddy, but only holy and under the full anointing of the Holy Ghost.  Notice in the very beginning how God spoke to Bishop Locke and told her that many of these people who crept in the church to cause unholiness are ordained from the pits of hell.  Too many people are yet dying of AIDS in the church.  ISIS is on the up-rise saints, take heed.  Let's be holy in everything we do.  So, listen, learn, take heed and be blessed.

Let Us Not Forget to Pray For Gospel Artist, Pastor Sandra Crouch



After we all have grieved for a great loss within the gospel music industry, let us not go on with our lives without keeping Pastor Sandra Crouch up in prayer.   You know, she will forever be Pastor Andrae Crouch's twin and no doubt, she is feeling a lot of pain, although he's in a much better place.   

Do you know how difficult it is to be very close to a sibling and sometimes, it seems as some people in the black church will not care for one like the do the other one? They will even try to divide that tight bond between close siblings.   No one will ever be able to separate Pastor Sandra Crouch from her twin and no one knew Pastor Andrae Crouch like Sandra.  Of course, most of all God knew him best.   However, let's pray for God to strengthen her to go on with their church as she continues on to pastor without her beloved twin, gospel legend, Pastor Andrae Crouch.   

We love you Pastor Sandra Crouch and we are keeping you in our prayers.  God bless all of you and thanks for reading RGA.

Gospel Artist, Kirk Franklin Weighs In On Slaying of 21 Egyptian Christians


Gospel music artist, Kirk Franklin touched on the subject of those Christian being killed by ISIS. In his own words, Franklin reminds us to pray and be grateful. However, we could go much deeper than that, let us not give into excepting the Islamic religion as though it is Christianity, this is where many Christians are losing it.   Let us remember, that if many people of the Islamic faith served our God, then we wouldn't be witnessing what ISIS is doing to Christians, beheading them for serving Jesus Christ.

According to eewmagazine.com, Kirk Franklin tweeted: 
 “Christians being executed in Egypt puts what we go through daily in a different light,” he wrote on Twitter. He then added hastags, "#pray" and "#livegrateful."

Praise God for Kirk Franklin touching on the subject of ISIS.

Kirk Franklin says Christian Music (his Included) has Taken a ‘Step Away from the Cross'; Artists Need to Get Back to Andrae Crouch-style Songs that Win Souls




We never thought we'd say this, but we just may become a fan of Kirk Franklin.  Why?  He's simply speaking the truth about this age of gospel music, it's gotten too far from the cross, in his own words.  We suppose after the late legendary gospel artist, Pastor Andrae Crouch's home-going, God has been speaking to Franklin.  According to BlackChristianNews.com, Franklin allegedly stated, 
"Our music doesn’t affect people the way it used to. It doesn’t create movements like it did during Andrae’s time. Is it because today’s worship leader is too busy trying to get the record deal, the applause, a higher church salary, and that crossover song? [The guilt is all over my hands, people!]

"Every step we take away from the cross — and the cross alone – every time we focus on sales over souls… the goal gets lower and lower."
 God is using Kirk Franklin and we thank God for him.

Gospel Artist Kirk Franklin Questioned if God Really Existed


Now, of course a lot of us Christians have had so many difficulties in life, it does not surprise us that Kirk Franklin allegedly admits he questioned if God really existed. However, his reason had to do with the rules and regulations within the church world.  If course, we all feel different and have our own reasons for wondering if God really exist from time to time, but really, possibly the way the some church people may enforce rules, according to the Bible may make one feel as though God may not love them, not just wonder if He exist.  According to ChristmaNews.com, musician Kirk Franklin has opened up about how Christian subculture—rules, dress codes and worship and sermon standards—caused him to question if God even existed.  We are so very glad Kirk Franklin did not become an atheist and knows God is very real.

Gospel Music Artist Pastor Marvin Sapp Opens about About Love on Instagram



Not many pastors discuss what real love is, but it takes a true man of God to fully express what it means.  Pastor Marvin Sapp expressed how many people may say I love you, but their actions fail to add up to it, in his own words.   According to ChristianPost.com, Pastor Marvin Sapp shared: "Many use it as a manipulative tool to get what they think they want. However I wonder while using them do we really understand the depth of what has been uttered from our mouths," he wrote. "'I Love You' to me means total commitment, the giving of ones all, losing out on some [of] your desires in order to grant theirs."  

Yes, it hurts deeply when you don't feel love from a person who always claims they love you, but they have to pay for not giving out what they speak.  Let us praise God for Pastor Marvin Sapp's message.

Newsboys Co-Founder, George Perdikis Allegedly Renounces Christ, Says ‘He is Now An Atheist’



In general, hardships in life may make a person no longer believe in God, after serving Him.  Of course, it hurts us to say this, but it's the truth.  When you look at the people in the world, specifically celebrities who do not know Christ, it appears as though they have an easier way to go, than the average Christian.   As a Christian, often times it seems like God is not with us. However, we must realize it's only a test that we must constantly pass. Satan often speaks to us and ask us, if God is real, because we have endured such a struggle, but the Devil is a lie.  In the case of this ex-Christian music artist, George Perdikis, he no longer believes in Jesus Christ.

According to Joy105.com, he Newsboys is one of the most popular Christian bands ever—most recently reminding fans why with the hit theme song for the movie God’s Not Dead that tackles atheism head on. That’s one more reason why it’s so disturbing that one of its co-founders, George Perdikis, has renounced Christ and embraced a godless worldview. 

It's a dangerous thing to deny Jesus Christ and embrace the world, after our lives are over we must stand before the judge.  We must withstand and endure all obstacles we face as Christians, no matter how much we are judged, misunderstood, or who wrongfully judges us.  Let us keep George Perdikis in our prayers.

Pastor Jason Nelson, Gospel Artist Talks About New Album




Pastor Jason Nelson opens up about his new gospel album.  God is using Pastor Nelson, simply because we have heard no other man or woman of God who are gospel artists, admitting they are creating gospel songs to glorify God in this era when Christianity is becoming unpopular, specifically.  Think about it, we need more gospel artists to seek God more than ever before, because in this country and even abroad, we are in a spiritual battle for our freedom to serve and worship God.  Therefore, whenever creating gospel songs, gospel artists should allow the Holy Spirit to use to them to create a shift that is going to inspire and empower our freedom to serve Him as He desires.  According to ChristianPost.com, Jason Nelson has made a name for himself in the gospel music industry for 10 years, but the preacher, singer and songwriter believes his latest album is a divine assignment during a time when Christianity is becoming increasingly unpopular.  We look forward to hearing Pastor Jason Nelson's songs.  Thanks for reading RGA and God bless you.
