Each week, we will be presenting various ways that we share the love of Christ. This week's featured spotlight is "The Sound: Inspirational Music Turned Upside Down!"
With The Sound, we present the Gospel 24/7 via online radio in a format that transcends traditional boundaries to reach the unchurched with the love of Christ, through their love for music…featuring Christian hip hop, rap, and R&B. If you know a youth or young adult who's into hip hop, rap, and R&B, share this station with them!
Ok…so we know that hip hop, rap, and R&B aren’t for everyone. But check out these two artists. The are the real deal!
International Show gave up a lucrative career in the secular music industry for JESUS. He has quite a testimony! And this worship is powerful!
This song is called Worship Your Name! Yes! A Christian rapper is worshipping GOD through his music! We worship YOUR Name!!! Hallelujah!!!
You will definitely not be able to find our next artist, Kieran the Light, neatly packaged in a "church box" with "clean Christianity" on a Sunday morning. Why? Because he is exposing evil and shining the light on the Truth! He is saying things that many churches are afraid to address. Check out the lyrics on this song...deep!
My eyes are open, I can't get caught in these little traps
And I don't need to burn sage, because that's witchcraft
We need to stop being mad at the person
It's not the flesh, it's the spirit, we need discernment
It's scary to have it all figured out and you still don't know what's coming
If I say Jesus is coming, then people think it's funny
But all these kids believe in tooth fairies and mummies
I thought Easter was 'bout Jesus, they replaced Him with a bunny
Distractions give us more faith in Santa Claus than our Savior
How come the letters in Santa also spell Satan?
If scary movies are good, then why do we fear it?
Why do these stores like to call alcohol spirits?
Help me understand it
The world been looking shady
I just need some answers
I'm seeing men turn into ladies
Everything is backwards
The world has been deceivin' us
With these distractions
How did this happen?
Look at this world that we livin' in, somebody castin' spells
When we celebrate Mardi Gras, we just mask ourself
Think I'm saying too much, I might be getting past myself
Is Christmas really 'bout Christ? Now let's just ask ourself
Okay, God, if they not shook yet, here's the earthquake
Where in the Bible does it say was Jesus' birthday?
Social media caused a lot of my worst days
Can't forget the past if we keep throwing back on Thursdays
Everyone thinking it's funny, am I the only one who don't find it amusing?
Everybody be talking 'bout purpose but don't even know what they supposed to be doing
Don't even know if they believe in Jesus, everyone picking and choosing
I can see all of their fame and all of their money, but really they losing
But they gon' just say I'm hatin', they think they winnin'
Lukewarm Christians and their feelings 'cause they sinning
The Holy Spirit's convictions got them offended
So let me go ahead and end it, 'cause they won't get it
You can't win every argument trying to twist facts
Manipulation's a form of witchcraft
I had to let go of pride, 'cause I gotta be humble
Because he who exalts himself will be humbled
I'm feeling this
Hold on, I'm about to go back in, 'cause I got a whole lot more to say
They not ready for this
So actually, let me pray on that
Cut it off
This is what we play on The Sound because we expose the dark and shine light on the Truth of GOD's Word and HIS love.
The Sound in the Streets
The Sound is not just about playing music on the radio...we take it to the streets! If we want to reach the unchurched for JESUS, we have to go to the streets!
So what is The Sound in the Streets? It could look like an outdoor concert...or a "fun day" with games and vendors and sports...or a parade with marching bands...or a block party...or a pop-up church! In the middle of everything, we hit them with the Word of GOD and then have an altar call...right there in the streets!!! It's all about lifting up the Name of JESUS!
It's innovative evangelistic outreaches that cultivate community betterment and empowerment in the Kingdom via the Mobile Groove (pop-up church) and other creative efforts to reach souls with the Gospel.
Call to Action
The Sound is one of the ways that we reach youth and young adults for CHRIST. Many times, these youth do not want to come into the doors of a church. So we go to where they are...with the music they love...and provide what they need: acceptance, love and authenticity through JESUS.
But we absolutely cannot do this without YOU, partnering together with us. We are 100% dependent on GOD as our Source. We are asking you to be one of HIS resources. As He touches your heart, please do not ignore His call. Please don't just so, "Oh that's great what they are doing," and move on to the next matter on your agenda. Respond today and get involved.
