Fa raha mbola Tsaroako, valahana hop izahay dia nanana ny mieritreritra be momba an'Andriamanitra sy ny fivavahana. Tsy hoe milaza fa ny fivavahana rehetra rappers devotees. Fa vitsy rappers - na mpanakanto raha tsy izany - dia afaka hanozongozona ny faniriana hampiditra an'Andriamanitra any ho any ny kanto. Tena voajanahary sady tsara ho antsika ny miresaka momba an'Andriamanitra, Fa ny fanontaniana dia, inona isika hoe:? Ny sasany hilaza hoe, "Tena marina mozika. Aza maka izany ho zava-dehibe toy izany!” Inona anefa no nisy mpanao rap milaza ny Mika dia lehibe kokoa noho ianao dia mety hieritreritra.
Ny sasany nampiasa nahatapaka ranjo hop izahay mba haneho ny tena finoana ara-pivavahana na ny tsy fisian'izany. Islam, The Five Percenters, Fivavahana Kristianina, hisalasala momba ny fisian'Andriamanitra, tsy hino an'Andriamanitra, sy ny fivavahana hafa efa rehetra no nasandratry ny alalan 'ny teny kanto. Heveriko valahana hop izahay dia miavaka mifanaraka hanehoana tsy fivadihana sy ny fanoloran-tena ny na inona na inona izahay liana. Amin'ny ampahany noho ny kolontsaina ny mandresy lahatra rawness ary indraindray noho ny valahana hop izahay bebe kokoa mamela teny, dia toy izany no afaka tena "mampianatra.”
Fa ny ankamaroan 'ny fotoana dia bebe kokoa atodiakanga hop izahay tahaka ny nanety noho ny kilasin'ny Sekoly Alahady. Mihazakazaka eny Rappers mampiasa ny volany teo am-bavan'ny, na fantatr'izy ireo izay miresaka momba na tsia.
fahatsoram-po vs. tsy miraika
Misy ny sasany izay maneho rima ny tso-po - na dia indraindray diso - Search for ary miady mafy amin'ny fahamarinana. Manaja fa. One thinks of The Roots’ “Dear God 2.0,” or Kendrick Lamar’s “Dying of Thirst”.” *Eny, raha tsy mitovy hevitra ny tombantombana na ny tsoa-kevitra, Tiako mihaino tso-po nivahiniany. Ary matetika no mahatonga ahy hivavaka ho an'ny mpiara-emcees.
Hip Hop foana nanana lafiny mainty aza, izay mpanakanto hitondran'ny an'Andriamanitra sy ny fivavahana amin'ny tsy fanajana sy ny tsy fanajana. Rappers toa ny hoe mahatsapa ny teny izay mahitsy eo ny fotoana - na tena mino azy izy ireo na tsia. Ary ao amin'ny "Christian lahatsoratra-” firenena tahaka ny antsika, Sahisahy ratsy ireo fanafihana matetika dia mikendry ny an'i Jesosy sy ny fiangonany.
Mazava ho azy, misy zavatra - toy ny fihatsarambelatsihy sy ny vola noana "mpitory” - Izay mendrika azo vazivazina. fa mampalahelo, ny Baiboly, ny fiangonana, ary Andriamanitra no matetika raisina toy ny tsy misy dikany anjara tao amin'ny tantara foronina tantara. Ekeko, mandre rappers miresaka momba ny "freaky” ankizivavy ao am-piangonana amboarampeo mahatonga ahy hahazo aina, fa na inona na inona mihoatra noho ny malahelo ahy naneso an'i Jesosy mihitsy.
Maro rappers no niantso ny tenany hoe Andriamanitra, nametraka ny tenany eo amin'ny sehatra amin'i Jesosy, ary efa boastfully naka ny anaran'ny Tompo foana. Izy efa nanao Albums rehetra manodidina tsy manaja lohahevitra ara-pivavahana. Nampiasa izy ireo efa nomen'Andriamanitra ny famoronana ny manompa ny Mpamorona. How ironic.
Amin'ny maha-mpanara-dia an'i Jesosy, Manokana aho tafintohina noho ny zavatra reko, fa mihoatra noho izay matahotra aho fa ireo izay spew ireo ratsy. Izahay rehetra matahotra ho an'ny lehilahy izay nihazona izany andraikitra izany nandrora na teo aza ny ny Filoha, fa tokony ho dia mainka natahotra ny olona izay Mandrora eo anatrehan'ny Tsitoha Andriamanitra.
Namaly Amin'ny Grace
Koa ahoana no tokony havaliko? Fa afaka nanomboka ny fanentanana hanao ankivy ny mozika. na, toy ny mpiangaly rap aho, Dia afaka manoratra ny henjana diss firaketana ny mandrakizay. Aoka aho raha manapa-kevitra na ireo fomba marina na diso. fa amim-pahatsorana, Tsy mino aho fa manao zavatra maro izy ireo mba hiatrehana ny tena olana.
Ny mozika rappers ireo hanafaka dia taratry 'ny fony. Ny teny tonga lafatra foana sary ny zava-mitranga ao amintsika. Moa ve ianao Voafingan'ny raha mitana ny vera ny rano na ranom-boankazo? Na inona na inona ianao no ao amin'ny fitaratra spills avy teo amin'ny tany. Araka ny fantatsika rehetra, ny clumsiness tsy mamokatra ny rano, izany fotsiny dia mampiseho amintsika izay ny ao amin'ny fitaratra. Tena toy izany koa amin 'ny teny. Rehefa miteny, na Rap, ny afa-po ny fontsika dia nandraraka avy. Miteny sy ny mozika dia tsy manova antsika mpanota, fa izany no sarona izay ny ao am-pontsika sy ny saintsika (Matthew 12:34).
Amin'ny fanazavana ny izany, mihaino ny sasany amin'ireo rappers izay mitondra ny lohahevitra ara-pivavahana dia milaza amiko zavatra roa.
voalohany, tsy mahalala izay i Jesoa no. Raha toa izy ireo dia, izy ireo na oviana na oviana hilaza Azy izany. Mazava ho azy, dia hahafantatra an'i Jesosy dia Jiosy, izay nohomboana tamin'ny hazo fijaliana lehilahy roa arivo taona lasa izay. saingy, they don’t truly understand Him.
Tsy misy lehilahy na vehivavy ny saina dia hiezaka ny hametraka ny tenany tamin'ny sehatra miaraka amin'ny Mpitondra tanteraka raha tena fantany Azy ho toy izany. Tsy misy olona dia hanaja Azy mifanerasera Azy amin'ny asa ara-nofo fahavetavetana na herisetra, raha fantany fa Izy no Mpitsara mandrakizay ny fanahiny. Izy ireo tsy misamboaravoara ny anarany manodidina tahaka ny tsy misy Izy ary hitondra ny anarany toy izany sy ny tsy fanajana levity.
Rehefa tena efa nahita an'i Jesosy, ianao hahatakatra fa Izy no tsy manan-tsahala. Rehefa tena mahalala ny Mpanjaka, ianao manaiky ny fahefany, tsy manohitra izany. Ka ny hany famaranana hataoko sary dia tsy nahita Azy fa iza Izy.
faharoa, ilaintsika ny olona izay mahalala an'i Jesosy hiteny ny. Tsy marina amin'ny hira sy ny bilaogy Lahatsoratra, fa eo amin'ny latabatra ny sakafo hariva, ao amin'ny boardroom, ary any an-dakilasy. Nahoana? Satria tsy fahalalana sy ny tsy fanajana izany dia tsy miavaka ny rappers. Sahisahy ratsy zavakanto dia iray monja fanehoana izany. Isika dia miaina ao anatin'ny kolontsaina jamba ny fahamarinana (2 Corinthians 4:4).
Am-piandohan'ny lahatsoratra Blind Eyes
Koa raha mahafantatra an'i Jesosy, milaza ny namanao sy ny fianakavianao ny fahamarinana. Andriamanitra dia tsy mba ho kilalao io amin'ny. Izy mba hivavahana, tia, nankatò, ary nahafinaritra. Izy no tena. Halany ny fahotana, ka nirahiny ny Zanany hamono izany. Raha ny tena izy, Ny Zanany dia maty ka naka ny famaizana noho ny fahotana toy izany dia tsy hanana ny. And God raised Him from the grave so that we could live with Him forever.
Nitranga izany vaovao tsara amin'ny hafa! fa azafady, manao izany amin'ny fahasoavana. Aza mivazavaza amin'ny olona, ary manomboka tia azy ireo. Raha efa nahita an'i Jesosy noho ny toetrany, fa tsy hoe satria tsara kokoa noho ianao na iza na iza. Izany satria Andriamanitra nampahiratra ny jamba maso. Mivavaha izy no manao toy izany koa ho an'ny namana sy ny fianakaviana.
Ary raha tsy mahalala an'i Jesoa, tokony hahafantatra Azy. Izy indescribably tsara, ary mihoatra noho mendrika ny fanoloran-tena. Tsy misy na iray aza amintsika izay manam-bola, tsy miraharaha an'Andriamanitra, na hitondra ny Zanany tahaka ny hafa fotsiny Dude. Ny mandrakizay miankina amin'ny zavatra inoantsika momba an'i Jesosy. Ary ny marina, na mino Azy isika, na tsy, isika kosa dia hotsaraina araka Aminy.
Ka inona no Andriamanitra ho tsy mpino ianao manontany? mpamorona, Mpanohana, ary Mpitsara. Ary raha Ho hiverina sy mino - Mpamonjy.
*Disclaimer: Tsy aho Nampirisihin'i mihaino ireo hira voalaza etsy ambony. Ny iray tamin'izy ireo dia ahitana teny ratsy izay tsy ho mety na hanampy ho an'ny maro.
“We would all be afraid for a man who’d spit in the face of the
President, but we should be even more afraid for a man who spits in the face of Almighty God.” – That sentence is very powerful!
Thank you for this article Trip! I really enjoy Christian Hip Hop because I always felt that lyrically it had much more content and teaching than normal CCM praise music.
Mampihomehy, I have never liked secular Hip Hop because of the constant repeating lyrical content of sex, zava-mahadomelina, self exalting, sns. That has been true even before I became Christian.
Raha ny tena izy, I grew up listening to punk rock and was always a rocker. When I found Christian Hip Hop, Tiako izany! My friends were dumbfounded that I was listening to Hip Hop since I had always disliked it, at least secular Hip Hop.
Keep on doing your great work and I shall too my brother! For the Glory of God and our beloved Saviour Jesus! :D
I agree that out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks, so naturally the words to songs are going to be about whats going on in a person.
I would also like to add that many Country singers as well talk about Jesus as some one they would drink with? Ummm yeah right if they saw him they would become humble and would not think much about drinking. Or would try to hide from his presence.
I would like to share on here and with you that I have been called to speak to people about His Love. His Spirit told me that He would speak threw me to people. I am not perfect and I do try to stay unstained by the world, and am growing like other Christians also.
I wanted to share with you some of my testimony of Gods goodness in my own life.
I had always felt like I could feel God watching me even as a youth. I would sing to Him and get lost in the day thinking about His love. When I was 15 the Lord literally showered me with His love and Spirit and I received the Holy Spirit that day. My mouth was used by the Spirit to answer questions that was on others in the room hearts. And He spoke to me threw my heart telling me He had come to live in me and would protect me and would speak threw me when the time was right. I remember when I was in 9th grade and these people came with trash cans full of condoms to our school. Robert E. Lee in Tyler Tx. They showed us many pictures and the deceases that sex would bring. They told us to fill free to fill up small brown trash bags of condoms and take them if we needed them. They were telling us that we could go to the nurses office and get some also if we did not want to take them right then. When they said,”Sex is the best filling that you will ever fill.” I stood up in-front of the whole 9th grade class and these people and proclaimed. “No God’s Holy Spirit is the best thing you and I will ever fill.” They had police escort me to the office until after they had finished there spill. I remember a few students stood along with me and said she is right. This was the beginning of my journey.
Later on in Life I was at an apartment where there was drinking and card games. I remember I felt like I needed to flee this place this feeling overwhelmed me in my heart. I noticed a man on a karaoke machine started to say my name and spoke things about me that I did not know how he could know. I watched him and noticed I could see horns coming out from his head I asked my friend if she could see what was happening also, she replied no, but that she felt uneasy about us being there. I knew I was seeing a spiritual thing happening then. I saw more things razor sharp teeth and and claws, and at that point I ran to the door to get out. The man on the karaoke machine called out to a women to close the door on me and not let me leave, she was not able to and he hurried to the door and stood in-front of the door closing me inside. I was in complete shock at what happened next. I saw the ugliest demon possible come half way out of this man as if to devour me right there, and at that moment a beautiful white covering came down over my entire body and in an instant the demon flew from this mans body. The man could not stand and slid down the door into a sitting position and I saw tears run down his face. I was then able to open the door even with this man sitting in-front as easy as if he were not sitting there, and began to run as fast as I could out of this apartment complex.
I at this point I felt as if I needed to ride my self from all the people in my life that would even consider to put me into a room with people that were demon possessed. And so I fought my way away from gangs and bad influences. I did not really give my whole life to God at this point and would like to add I am still in training in this area also. But for God to protect me in this way even though I was young and in need of so much mercy and grace, still baffles my mind to this day. His love is Amazing. I have only encountered one other demonic spirit to which I could spiritually see. I was driving down the hwy 155 and I noticed a car plate that said “Vampire” on it, as I passed the car I looked at the driver and saw a demon right there in the mans body. I speed up to get on down the road away from this one.
Another example of God’s Protection in my life. When I was younger some time after I received the Holy Spirit I was riding in the back end of a pick up truck in Louisiana and it was me and three cousins all very young in the back and three cousins in the front. I felt the Spirit move me to sing He has the whole world in his hands, And I stood up and raised my hands to God. At that moment as my cousins in the back are looking at me like why is she singing that, my cousin who was driving was passing a truck to our right and we are in a curve and a truck was in the lane ahead coming straight on. My cousin who was driving said, “Dear God what have I done.” and my other cousin in front said, “My God.” and I was just lifting my hands to God and singing. I saw a beautiful rain-bowed hand slash cloud come down in an instant and remove the truck that was to head on collide with us. I remember seeing the truck behind us on down the road as if nothing had happened. When we got back to my aunts home my cousins said, “We would all be dead if not had Cherish been in the truck.” they asked me what I was doing back there and I said singing hes got the whole world in his hands. My cousins and I are still in Awe of God for his protection of all of us that day. I told them it was not “ahy” fa “Andriamanitra” who had protected us.
This is just a couple of the many times God has protected me, showed mercy to me and kept me from harm.
With all that said I hope this encourages someone out there, and Loving Jesus is not just about “seeing” something happen for we know Scripture says Blessed is the man who has not seen and yet still believes. And that is only a part of that scripture fyi. Anyways I wanted to share this and say I Love Jesus, I believe and testify to his protection,mercy, and Love. I want everyone to know our King has a wedding feast He is preparing for His beloved. We as His Church are his beloved and He wants you and me and anyone reading this to prepare themselves for His appearing, and to repent from there sins and follow Him. I Love your music Trip. It has blessed my life and others around me. I pray that you will continue to Put Matt 6:33 into practice and live a life testifying to our Kings goodness. I am so thankful for good beats with God loving words that I and my young family can enjoy as we wait upon Him. Cherish :) I AM UNASHAMED!
Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Talk about this rapper . He had a “Jesus walks” vision in the Hip-hop industry as you have but what happened? “failed” if you so to speak. What went wrong?…These are the questions you need to find answers to.
Sitting back and analyzing What’s happening to Jesus “image” wont change a thing. As a matter of fact that CANT alter Jesus’ JESOSY!!.
He was crucified by some bunch of cheap Romans soldiers and that even led to the prove that He Jesus is God after He Resurrecting.
Go get a record deal from YMCMB and Preach the Truth in a raw manner, and see whether you will survive as a rapper.”say what the world wants to hear” business…smh
They are so use to the world and it systems: Getting money, fornicating, etc.. to the extend that even if Jesus manifest Himself physically to them today, they will unconsciously slip back into there old ways later.
“You can easy destroy a tree at it nursing stage but not when it has fully established as a Timber.” and the only way to get rid of a Timber completely is by destroying it root.
So do what you ought to do to destroy the root of the problem as a “saved” being. Tell the world what they’ve not heard before.. A material proof of Jesus’ Existence, Power and Glory “new light”
Some friends of mine recently commented that the best way to recognize falsehood is by learning to recognize truth; I think that wisdom applies here. One could go about creating a campaign against this godless music, but even better is to keep producing God-centered music.
I’m not much of a rap fan myself, but I am tremendously grateful that there are individuals such as yourself who are serving as a sort of indigenous missionary and reaching into that culture with the love of Christ.
An awesome, well-thought-out perspecitve from Trip Lee!
Beautifully and powerfully said! Thank you for declaring truth!
ok. it is time for “Christian rappers” to mock their (izao tontolo izao) god(satan). its as simple as that.
If you think our Jesus is being disrespected/mocked then you rappers are in the best position to also render their satan powerless by insulting/disrespecting satan the hard way twice.
In my book Rap and Religion: Understanding the Gangstas God, I write about how rappers see themselves as Jesus because he was oppressed like they are. Check out. http://rapandreligion.com
Eny! Thanks for sharing Dr. Utley! I heard you speak at North Park University last fall and was impacted by this connection.
Wow Will…..I do appreciate how powerful and subtly you used words to put through your thoughts [shows whats in your glass :) ]…I wanted to voice similar opinions, you really brought clarity into this topic using good examples.
mamerina ny fisaorana anao,
there be gods MANY and lords MANY. (1Co8:5) aHaYah asher aHaYAH, TELL the CHILDREN of YISRAEL I AM HATH sent you. (Ex.3:14) & moreover the El of Avraham, Yitschak, n Yaacov (Ex.3:15).. YmmanuwEL, YesHaYAH HaMashiyach.
PRAY & read your Bible intensely and the Holy One of YisraEl WIL reveal the answers from OUR Father which ART in heaven… Salvation the Saviour is comin back for His ppl… “The TWELVE Tribes of YisraEL” & those that BELIEVE the WORD of aHaYAH.. search for Yesha – Salvation as a HIDDEN treasure… Bless aHaYAH – He Who IS, He Who WAS, & He Who IS to COME. (Rev1:4) even so come, YesHaYAH. Amen.
Ka inona no Andriamanitra ho tsy mpino ianao manontany? I say ask them back, What’s a non believer to a God? ;)
this is really a great message
inspired me to write something today, don’t let some negative people or comments sway you from speaking the truth. I know that there are some out there that might try to get on your nerves. I am here to say Keep it up you are making a difference
When I was if the world, I was a heavy hip hop enthusiast because of the artistic creativity and mainly because of content. Listeners gravitate to words that appeal to the heart. Noho izany, in essence, as long as there are darkened hearts, there will be those that gravitate to the message. This article just serves notice on us who believe because “we are made to light it up a city on a hilltop” and we want people to ‘hit us up when they feel lost’ SO that we can navigate them tithe savior. You’ve outlined our sole mission in this article- thanx! P.S. LOVE THE CUP ANALOGY!!!! AWESOME. TAHIN'ANDRIAMANITRA
miresaka momba: Rebel Rapper Trip Lee Talks About Rap & fivavahana - YES FM
I love the thought process of Mr. Lee, I’ve been a follower of Trip from the jump, When he asked the question “Koa ahoana no tokony havaliko? Fa afaka nanomboka ny fanentanana hanao ankivy ny mozika. na, toy ny mpiangaly rap aho, Dia afaka manoratra ny henjana diss firaketana ny mandrakizay. I’ll let you decide whether either of those approaches are right or wrong.” I think a response with a diss record is very appropriate, I see it as an opportunity to do exactly what David did to Goliath. He had the chance to shut the mouths of the one who was speaking against his GOD. Now with the influence and the amazing GOD giving talent Trip has, I see it as a golden opportunity to Infiltrate the Industry.
May GOD Bless- Good Blog!
GREAT TRIP PRAISE GOD!!!!!!
