WHERE MUSIC MARRIES MINISTRY



Worship musician

  Music on its own is neither a ministry office nor calling, it is a ministry EXPRESSION! Everyone called of God occupies any of the ministry provisions and operates in any of the diversities of ministry gifts in the New Testament, of which music was not mentioned.
As a musician, beyond merely singing and playing, press into the calling of God for your life! Every musician in “Church” is more than just a singer! There is a pastor or evangelist or teacher or apostle or prophet or teacher or exhorter or miracle worker or helper or healer or any one you find there…then you can express any of that through your music.
Go beyond tunes, cords and notes; get into the Word, find who you are and get deep in it. That’s why after Jesus found and read the place that was written concerning Him, he handed the book to the minister and sat down. The minister ought to pick up the book and continue finding! There is a reason why Jesus read just a few lines of Isaiah 61 and got it fulfilled that day, so that you can keep reading the rest and getting them fulfilled as well. Notice that there are no music notes in the Bible, even the sweet psalmist of Israel wrote in WORDS; any keys can sing them anytime and anywhere! That’s the beauty of building and basing your music on the Word!
Desire and press into the ANOINTING, that’s what conveys the blessing on Aaron’s ministry down to the people that receive it. That is what breaks the bondage and chains of darkness on the lives of your audience. The gift may attract them, the packaging might inspire and intrigue them, but it is the oil that blesses them. The world we are in now requires much more. So spending more on the peripherals and having no time with the Holy Spirit will make you a loud but powerless entertainer; and I think the Giver of the gift will one day hold us accountable!
Sit down, learn and BE COACHED! The men God would use to mentor and raise you may not even be fantastic singers. Jethro didn’t know a note (we are not told), yet the Moses he raised could write songs even in the wilderness. Samuel never wrote any song but the David he mentored wrote a myriad of sweet psalms! Find your pastor and submit to him and if you had felt unappreciated and unutilized; and like the prodigal boy had gone to far countries, please, come to yourself and go back HOME! You need to finish your training, and then like any other Gospel minister, become recognised and released as the case may be.
Learn DISCIPLINE, build character and get exposed to all the possibilities of ministry God has loaded you with. All I am trying to say is “never let your gift limit your ministry”.
Selah!

HOW TO ENSLAVE A BLACK MAN - 1712 SLAVE-OWNER SPEECH (FULL TEXT)

I don't care to know if this letter/speech was real or not. It doesn't have to be real for the content to be believable. Every day, blacks and Africans seem to be in perpetual slavery. Via the Economy, international politics, diplomacy, civilization and so on, it is increasingly confirmed that we have willingly submitted to slavery. The same principle for taking slaves of individuals in the days of slave trade is still used for taking slaves of entire nations today: 'make the slaves sell themselves to you'. Is this not happening today in Nigeria, South Africa, Ghana, Kenya, Sudan etc? I do wish that Africans will read this letter below. The quote, "if you don't want a n**ger to find a thing, hide it in a book" seems like a stereotype. But it is a verifiable fact. We mostly don't enjoy reading. READ FULL TEXT OF 'THEY ARE STILL OUR SLAVES' HERE Now, let's read the Willie Lynch Letter: The Making Of A Slave! This s

Sammie Okposo, Akpororo & A-List Artistes Storm Uyo For Street Gospel 2015

“The Street Gospel Project is basically a concert campaign that drives with content to reach out to people on the streets” says Pastor Runcie Mike, senior pastor of the innovation driven The Evening Church; and convener of the annual Street Gospel concert. The first edition, in 2014, held outdoors at the Ibom Tropicana Resorts. Street Gospel 2015, the sophomore edition is in collaboration with Zamar Entertainment, organizers of Sammie Okposo’s Praise Party - and fields A-list Nigerian international Gospel acts. The concept of reaching out to people on the streets is born out of renewed understanding by the Christian church, especially since the second half of the 20 th century, to keep evangelism in pace with a swift generation, so that the world is perpetually in touch with the gospel of Christ. It has kept an increasing number of Christian denominations reviewing their outreach approaches away from the conformist in search of more efficiency. The Street Gospel Project
