Why REBELLION?

Why REBELLION?

Rebellion sounds so negative… Why rebellion? I don’t know about that rebellion stuff, it sounds angry.

When we rebel, we don’t rebel against Godly authority. That would be sin. We rebel against the False Authority that is trying to reign over us: Sin Itself.

11: Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.
12: Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.
13: Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.
14: For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.
Romans 6

DONT LET SIN REIGN
Right now, at this very moment: Sin is attempting to reign over you, and be your king and Master. In order to overthrow sins authority you must REBEL. Don’t Let Sin Reign. So many people are unaware of the fact that sin is actively trying to run their life. It’s always been there, so they think it has a right to be there. Others are aware of the intrusion, but they treat sin like it has so much power that they can’t avoid it.

I’ve felt the same way at times, but realize if God told you not to let sin reign, you must have enough power over it. With Christ you have the power to resist thoughts of sin with words of faith. You also have an infinite source of pleasure (GOD) that will cause you to forget sin if you focus on enjoying Him instead of on sin. Give your mouth, heart, and body to God.

11: You will show me the path of life: in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
Psalms 16:11

Just because you sing “gospel” or know how to act “churchy” doesn’t mean you are in Rebellion against sin. There are many gospel artists that are openly gay. There are many ministers that are hypocrites (actors in real life); they sin and they try their best to be just as lustful and prideful, and materialistic as the world is. That’s not what we do.

HATE THE WORLD’S WAYS
Rebellion against the world means you are so filled up with the love of God; you don’t need the lust of the eyes (body lust, brand names, and shiny things), the lust of the flesh (uncontrolled sexual desire), or the pride of life (status and notoriety) to get satisfaction. (See 1 John 2:15)

You aren’t trying to FIT IN with the world. You may speak the same language as, and identify with, and love people from the world, but you TESTIFY and live totally differently. As a Kingdom citizen you are NOT afraid of conflict in this area, and as a member of Christ’s Bride you WON’T be pimped into whoring yourself away from God. Of course, people of the world may hate you for it, but you love them anyway. That’s Rebellion against the world.

7: The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I TESTIFY of it, that the works thereof are evil.
John 7

EXPOSE SATAN’S LIES
Satan is a liar, and the father of all lies (John 8).

44: Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
John 8

Rebellion against satan is simply this: Exposing his Lies. Rebellion against satan is not passively expecting the lies to expose themselves, or waiting for satan’s messengers to give up and admit their deceptions. Rebellion is ACTIVELY shining light of the Word on the lies of satan. These lies of satan could be embedded in false religion, entertainment, secular or gospel music, movies, politics, economics, anything!

You have the power to expose these lies, and walk in the truth. The truth will crush satan’s lies every time, but only if you SPEAK it and WALK it. Rebellion against satan is also walking and crushing his head while you march forward in life with the gospel of Jesus Christ in your mouth.

15: And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
Ephesians 6
20: And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly.
Rom 16

I challenge you to live in Rebellion against Sin, the World’s lust, and Satan. Jesus is the King of all, and He has filled us with his Spirit to the Glory of our Creator. Soon, there will be no need for rebellion against sin… only the Enjoyment of Our King. Until then: REBEL!

dj SOS 2008 Albums of the YEAR!

I know I’ve been slacking on the reviews for a minute, but no mas. Here’s my 2008 albums of the year:
Hip Hop:
Lecrae “Rebel”
Hands down… it hit top 10 on itunes, was #4 in Jet magazine… it made a lot of noise, and it was worth it. Lyrically, better than ever, Musically HOT, production top notch. You gotta get all the songs on this album!
R&P
Kiki Sheard “Bold Right Life”
This album is IMPECCABLE. I haven’t heard such a solid album in a long time. It’s like Canton Jones Password: You literally don’t have to skip ANYTHING. In this album Kierra shows that she is not just a talented singer, but a leader and voice for her generation, who is humbly seeking to follow Jesus. Uncompromisingly exalting the name of Jesus, she is bold enough to glorify Him exclusively and on purpose. THIS ALBUM IS FULL  OF HITS. The production is FIRE, its a djs dream!
Gospel Choir
Tye Tribbett  “Stand Out”
THIS ALBUM IS ONE OF THE BEST ALBUMS EVER. Tye Tribett just keeps getting better and better; probably because He stays focused on Jesus! He goes deep into Rock and worship for a few songs, has the gospel songs, and even raps in his first hip hop song! This album has so many styles, it keeps your attention the whole album. Tye Tribbett is a visionary leader, and a Faithful Witness to the Word of God.
Worship Rock
Shana Wilson “The Nations Are Waiting… LIVE IN WORSHIP”
Yes I’m a dj, but in my home life I listen more to worship rock music. Shana Wilson’s album is FIRE all the way through. She mixes the gospel vibe with the rock vibe… This is quality music to focus your heart on God. Its right up there with Delirious?, IHOP.org stuff, and Hillsongs. My wife tells me not to play it when she is doing something because she can’t do anything but seek God and pray when this album is on! You need to pick it up!
OTHER EXTREMELY HOT HEAT from 08:
Dietrick Haddon “Revealed”: Every Deitrick album is a Banger. Period.
Ambassador “Milk to Meat”: Solid, Weighty, Lyrically Excellent. I envy the FRUIT Ambassador’s ministry has. (With a Godly Jealousy:-)
2103 “Total Attention”: Very Very Very good album.
Flame “Our World Redeemed” Not just Joyful Noise, the whole album is chock full of hits.
Mary Mary “The Sound”: The hits are SO hitting.
Trip Lee “20/20” : Lots of good songs, lots of good teaching, and some bona fide hits.
