IS KANYE WEST A DECEIVER?

There are many Christians who are critical of Kanye West’s recent interview with Joel Osteen and subsequent concert at Lakewood church. They say he was promoting a false Jesus and a false gospel and leading people to hell – even calling his concert a Satanic ritual filled with New Age symbols etc. They do not believe Kanye has been truly converted. Instead, they believe he’s a deceiver. Are they right?

I watched most of the interview and the concert, and was blessed, encouraged, and edified by it all. I even wept and laughed through some of it. Those who believe Kanye is a deceiver and are being vocal about it are missing the mark. They’re criticizing Kanye when they should be watching and praying over his soul. I believe he has been genuinely converted but remains a famous celebrity rapper and billionaire, while at the same time, being a baby in the faith.

Don’t you think the devil would make him a main target of his attacks? He is proclaiming and singing about Jesus! Thousands are now reading the Bible that weren’t before. Thousands are attending church that weren’t before. Thousands are coming to Christ. Damage is being done to the kingdom of darkness. But there is a war and a fight for his soul.

Meanwhile too many believers keep forming weapons against him by questioning his conversion and calling him a great deceiver. Frankly, it displays a great immaturity and a lack of genuine love and concern for a young lamb whom wolves are seeking to tempt and devour.

Yes, he is raw. Yes, he has his rough edges as all new believers do when they are new converts. But I have no doubt he is a bonafide believer in Jesus Christ and is reaching multitudes with his testimony and message. But too many keep harping on every little thing he’s doing in his concerts and looking for the devil in it all. Then they tell the whole world he’s a false convert. They’re playing right into the hands of what the devil wants. More strife, more discord, more divisiveness in the body of Christ. Please stop the divisive rhetoric and the heresy hunting.

Kanye West is our brother, but the temptations are great at the level of influence he is at right now in the Kingdom. This is where caution must also be exercised. I say this because there’s a second group of Christians who must refrain from giving him idolatrous adulation and borderline worship. He’s been idolized and worshipped by the world, but must learn that kingdom principles run counterculture to the world.

Kanye’s Christian critics, really self-proclaimed watchmen, are actually rooting for Kanye to be exposed and fall. They would be happy for it because then they would be right and proclaim to everyone who wouldn’t listen to them, “I told you so!” This is a religious, Pharisaical spirit. It manifests in a self-righteousness and accuses preachers of abdicating their responsibilities of “protecting the sheep” from Kanye because we won’t call him out for the deceiver they believe he is. What arrogance!

The right spirit is to rejoice in Kanye’s salvation and testimony while being sober and watchful in prayer for him. Those who are walking in the right spirit are cheering for Kanye, hoping that he will overcome the many temptations of a high profile celebrity and become a mature disciple.

Pray for Kanye West. “And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one” (Matt. 6:13).

WE ARE ENTERING INTO A NEW ERA

The Godhead has been converging the ages for several decades. We are crossing over into brand new era. We are moving into an era of both great judgment and great glory, cleansing and consecration, repentance and restoration. This convergence has been in the making for nearly 70 years but is now fully upon us.

This new season will lead the Church into a new era where she will more efficiently grasp the end time. Once judgment, thorough repentance, and cleansing runs its’ course, the earth will be overwhelmed by the power and glory that shall be in manifestation through the glorious Church. Then the worst shall come, but the true Church will be gone.

We have no grid for what the Lord will do through a glorious end time Church. The Church has never faced and done what she is about to face and do. Many will be surprised. Hell shall be shaken. Multitudes shall awaken. God’s majesty and holiness shall be revealed and stun the world in a time of gross darkness.

“Arise, shine; for your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth,  and deep darkness the people; but the Lord will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you” (Is. 60:1-2).

The Lord has been preparing His Church for such a time as this and many will realize that they’ve not known Him and will awaken to righteousness. His awe shall be in the Church and in the earth. People will fall on their face and tremble. The harvest will be reaped by a cleansed, consecrated, and flaming fire Church.

The world is rapidly changing and the frequency of awe inspiring and fearful events is fast moving with all things culminating in the future rule and reign of Christ. The kingdom without end shall be more prominent and recognizable. Instead of churches being a subculture, the real believers shall become a counterculture. Its’ government will increase in visibility and its’ function shall be heightened through a very radical remnant. The King will present Himself as He really is and people shall marvel.

We have entered the harvest of the end of the age. The greatest ingathering of souls is just beginning. The greatest move of God we’ve ever seen in our lifetimes is upon us. The gross darkness that is upon the people will only make the light of God’s kingdom appear brighter.

During the time of Israel’s greatest apostasy was also the time when the greatest prophets arose and championed God’s cause for a return to radical righteousness. God is calling many to herald the truth of the gospel with fresh fire.

The greatest days of Church history are not in our past but in our present and in our the future. Believing this will activate you and move you into it. We are crossing a bridge where all the moves and activity of God from past generations will converge. The Holy Spirit is retro-fitting all past outpourings and various anointings and rolling them all into one and reactivating them for our times.

We are entering into the glorious Church era which is far different than what the Church has been known for today. Jesus will build His ekklesia that will shake the gates of hell. The true Church has never been built by man. Christ shall define His true Church and further expose the hybrid empty form of showy superficial Christianity.

The Holy Spirit is brooding over His people and moving them into a divine dissatisfaction. There is a hunger among the remnant for His real glory. Hope is rising and callings are being activated and reactivated and many more will now voice their faith.

Our books are forerunners to personal holiness, the move of God, and the return of the Lord. They also combat the departure from the faith and the turning away from the truth we are seeing in our day. Our new book  Cleansing The Temple is resonating with many readers.
