Shaking It Up

“On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS”  Revelation 19:16

One would have to be living under a rock to not have heard the latest regarding Kanye West and his new album Jesus Is King! And if you’re of my generation (over 60) and not exactly sure who this man is you surely have figured it out by now. Larger than life he is someone (along with his wife Kim Kardashian) who has commanded attention for quite some time. The poster family for money, vanity and fame one could hardly pick up a magazine or tabloid – not to mention the reality show that featured them – without running into either them or their extended family.  So how unlikely it is (to a lot of us) that God would use a man such as this to shake up a generation largely written off as hopelessly materialistic and completely out of touch with the faith and values of their fathers.

I just love how God works. Taking the unlikely and making it likely. Doing exactly the opposite of what we might expect him to do in order to accomplish his purposes. I remember this quote from Jonathan Cahn and find it as humorous as it is appropriate.

“Be careful about putting God into a box as he’s very good at getting out of them!”

For a generation steeped in materialism. Indoctrinated into post-modernism how refreshing it is to see a man with such a powerful persona step up and say unabashedly Jesus is King! I love it and am dancing with joy to see so many people especially young people responding to his message. What we need now is prayer that all of those making decisions for Christ will have someone to mentor them and help them to grow in their faith.  And prayer for Kanye as the devil is surely out to get him and is furious at losing one of his own.

It’s amazing to me the choice of words Jesus is King. He could have said anything – Jesus is awesome, Jesus is wonderful but what he chose to say was Jesus is King! Don’t you find that amazing! Whether in faith or in general discussion around the coffee pot at work – doesn’t matter – the fact is that lips that perhaps never uttered those words before are now saying it ….. and for good reason ….. Jesus is King! How close we must be then to the day of his return. A forerunner, I think of a very soon turn in events. How blessed we are to see this day.

“... that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven, on earth and under the earth and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord…” Philippians 2:10,11

“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem they shall prosper who love thee” Psalm 122:6

Watching and waiting with YOU for the soon return of Jesus!  Cindy

  1. Time will tell… but I do not share your enthusiasm. Rather, I would say my feelings are quite the opposite.
