Let Us Build With You

Let Us Build With You:::Satan has always used the same old tactics to steal, kill, destroy, supplant, corrupt, compromise, and deceive the Congregation of the Lord.

These tactics are all over the bible and they are so simple to see if you actually read the bible. In Ezra their enemies tried to fake-build with them because they didn’t want Israel to succeed in Holiness.

Ezra 4:1 Now when the adversaries of Judah and Benjamin heard that the children of the captivity builded the temple unto the Lord God of Israel;

2 Then they came to Zerubbabel, and to the chief of the fathers, and said unto them, LET US BUILD WITH YOU: FOR WE SEEK YOUR GOD, AS YE DO; AND WE DO SACRIFICE UNTO HIM and since the days of Esarhaddon king of Assur, which brought us up hither.

3 But Zerubbabel, and Jeshua, and the rest of the chief of the fathers of Israel, said unto them, Ye have nothing to do with us to build an house unto our God; but we ourselves together will build unto the Lord God of Israel, as king Cyrus the king of Persia hath commanded us.

4 Then the people of the land weakened the hands of the people of Judah, and troubled them in building,

5 And hired counsellors against them, to frustrate their purpose, all the days of Cyrus king of Persia, even until the reign of Darius king of Persia.

Is Christian Music a Business or a Ministry?

Let’s make a few distinctions:

God’s Business – Ministry.

Regular business – Earthly products.

False ministry – sinful music.

Ministry is Gods business, not the worlds business. We have to connect it to the church, not the world. Also, doing music for a business that sells an inanimate object like Pepsi or a widget factory is regular music business.

Partnering with a label that is invested in the work of iniquity makes you a worker of iniquity, a false ministry. How come these rappers who used to be Christian are so eager to partner with the wicked, but you don’t see any of them bragging about their commercials for regular businesses? That pays money too. I guess doing a sprite commercial or a Chrysler commercial is not cool enough?

So they choose deception instead. Perhaps the iniquity of pride is why these guys refuse to stay inbounds?

I got a sister who was paid to travel as a US ambassador to Africa teaching them how to rap. She didn’t have to compromise at all. I got a bro who is working on a rap album to teach math to middle schoolers.

No compromise. Extra income working in government or family education. These are the types of people doing ministry and regular business that is not filled with iniquity. Those are the real heroes.

The people trying to partner with sinful rappers and sinful labels are just deceived and trying to get more attention for their brands.
