SHAPE Pt 10 Using Five Fold Leadership Gifts in the Music Industry: The Pastor

SHAPE Pt 10 Using Five Fold Leadership Gifts in the Music Industry: The Pastor

By Ricardo ‘ReAsOn’ Butler

 

This is the tenth part of a mini-series of blog articles concerning how God designed you in His image. It’s called the SHAPE principle. I am pretty sure you have heard of it by Pastor Rick Warren from both his books The Purpose Driven Life and The Purpose Driven Church. But what I want to do now is see how we can apply the ministry or body gifts to the hip-hop ministry, industry, and culture.

 

“Oh yes, You SHAPED me first inside, then out;
You formed me in my mother’s womb.
I thank You, High God—You’re breathtaking!
Body and soul, I am marvelously made!
I worship in adoration—what a creation!
You know me inside and out,
You know every bone in my body;
You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit,
how I was sculpted from nothing into something.
Like an open book, You watched me grow from conception to birth;
all the stages of my life were spread out before You,
The days of my life all prepared
before I’d even lived one day.”
(Psalms 139:13-16, The Message).

 

Your ministry and business are an expression of not God, but of God working in you through your unique divine design and S.H.A.P.E., which are …

 

  • Spiritual gifts (Rom. 12:4-8; 1 Cor. 12:1-11, 28-31; Eph. 4:11-12),
  • Heart {passion, desire, burden, vision, mandate, cross, values, interests},
  • Ability {natural talent, skills, expertise},
  • Personality {temperaments: Driver, Expressive, Analytical, and Amiable},
  • Experiences {family, educational, occupational/vocational, spiritual, ministry, and painful}.

 

This is part of the Music Business in God’s Image Ministry Audio Course at the Five Fold Davidical School of Hip-Hop Ministry and Music Business@ http://www.fivefolddavidicalschool.ricardoequips.com/.

 

  • Level 1: Music Marketing and Networking Audio CourseLecture 1: “Your SHAPE / What’s in Your Hand?” Is available now at @ http://www.ricardoequips.com/musicialshape.

Leadership Comparison between Saul and David

By Apostle Don Atkin

My purpose is to reveal some of the wrong foundations and motivations that lead to broken relationships, and to offer some suggestions on how to pursue healthy relationships for the Kingdom’s sake. Some of these insights come out of my own failures. Others come from watching people who are near and dear to me struggle through disappointment and disillusionment when relationships fail.

 

A friend once described disillusionment as “deliverance from an illusion.” While this may not seem positive when it’s happening to you, nevertheless it is ultimately a good thing when our circumstances reduce us all the way down to reality. That which can be shaken will be shaken, and that which remains is the Kingdom. We want the Kingdom and nothing less, so it is a good thing when relationships are shaken which are not properly founded in Christ.

009 Purpose of the Five Fold Hip-Hop Ministry [PODCAST]

009 Purpose of the Five Fold Hip-Hop Ministry [PODCAST]

Sup famo!

In this podcast, in the release of my new book, Five Fold Davidical Hip-Hop Leaders: Influencing the Hip-Hop Ministry, Industry, and Culture, I talk about what the purpose of the Five Fold Ministry is in the music industry. What they are called to do and how they are called to do it.

Let’s SUM them all up!

“And David [the APOSTLE] spake to the chief of the Levites to APPOINTED [Heb: 'confirm, establish, appoint, ORDAIN'] their brethren to be the singers with instruments of music, psalteries and harps and cymbals, sounding, by lifting up the voice with joy. So the Levites APPOINTED … the singers [minstrels], Heman [the PASTOR], Asaph [the EVANGELIST], and Ethan [also called Jeduthun the PROPHET], were APPOINTED to sound with cymbals of brass; and Chenaniah [the TEACHER], chief of the Levites, was for song …” (1st Chronicles 15:16-17, 19, 22).

The Scripture we are going to look at today is just one verse. We are going to take this one verse and break it down into applicable steps to fulfill your leadership commitments as a Five Fold Davidical Hip-Hop Leader.

I’m not interpreting the Scripture into a “What does this mean?” kind of verse. I am more of a “Lord, what do you want me to DO?” upon reading this verse. Too many trying to figure stuff out mentally instead seeing how they can work out their salvation with trembling and fear (Phil. 2:12). So let’s learn how to DO the Word (James 1:22) and we will figure out faster what it means.

 

The Scriptures say DOING is sometimes the fastest way to understand the interpretation of a verse then trying to figure it out so you can do it.

 

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, a GOOD UNDERSTANDING have all they that DO His commandments: His praise endures for ever [for the eon].” (Psalm 111:10).

 

“If any man will DO His will, he [YOU—the reader] shall KNOW of [concerning] the doctrine [teaching], whether it be of God, or whether I speak of [make it up of] Myself.” (John 7:17).

 

So let’s switch the order and do first and let the Lord reveal why later. That’s how faith works anyway. If you understood in the beginning then you would not need faith to do it. Makes sense right? I sure hope so!

Now I am going to talk about a subject that I do not speak on much. I mean I have taught it before, but that was back when I was teaching on the Energetic Evangelist Course. Some of the final lesson in that course speaks about equipping Evangelists how to do deliverance ministry.

 

You know what deliverance ministry is. It’s when we cast out demons. It’s spiritual warfare. I talk about spiritual warfare a lot, especially in the Passionate Prophet Course. For some reason in my weird mine it seems more normal to talk about it when teaching on Apostolic and Prophetic Ministry. It doesn’t seem natural for me to teach it in the Evangelist lesson. But truthfully all of the Five Fold Ministry is involved in some form of spiritual warfare, especially casting out demons.

 

In this message, I want to talk to you from the Five Fold Hip-Hop Ministry standpoint using our music. A lot of people don’t think Hip-Hop directed by God does not or cannot cast out demons. Again, I am here to challenge the normal mindsets out there. That’s just what I do!

Anyway, we are here again, talking about the Five Fold Hip-Hop Ministers as hidden in shadows, metaphors, and allegories in the Old Testament’s life of Kind David. Hence the reason why I titled this new/next book, The ‘MC’ (which means Master Constructor) Part 11 – Five-Fold Davidical Leaders: Influencing the Hip-Hop Ministry, Industry, and Culture.

 

Today we are going to talk about the Jeduthun (don’t ask me how to pronounce it). That’s why I call him by his other name, as given in the Bible, which is Ethan.

 

So let’s find out about this dude and see how we can apply the principles to the New Covenant Prophet and today’s modern day music minstrels—the Holy Hip Hoppers!

 

 

Jeduthun who Prophesied

 

Jeduthun’s name in Hebrew means, “laudatory, revere, praise.” He was also called Ethan, which means, “permanent, strong.” The Bible says that he was the PROPHET!

 

” …  Jeduthun, who should PROPHECY with harps, with psalteries, and with cymbals …” (1st Chronicle 25:1).

 

“… under the hands of their father Jeduthun, who PROPHESIED with a harp, to give thanks and to praise the LORD.” (1st Chronicle 25:3).

 

It’s like I said about Chenaniah the Teacher, Jeduthun is pretty self-explanatory that he is the prophet. Well, scripturally all of the music minstrels are prophetic, which is the same today with the Holy Hip-Hop heads. The basic or the lowest level of the prophetic ministry in the Greek just means “inspired speaker or poet.”

Hey welcome back to part two in this series of blog posts in preparation to launch my new e-Book, The ‘MC’ (which means Master Constructor) Part 11 – Five-Fold Davidical Leaders: Influencing the Hip-Hop Ministry, Industry, and Culture!

 

We are going move right along into the series with Heman the Hip-Hop Pastor, which we have probably spoken almost as much as we have on King David, the apostolic type. Plus I already wrote a whole book for free talking about the Hip-Hop Pastor called, The Davidical Record Executive: A Psalms 23 Leadership Mini-Devotional. We all know that Psalms 23 is the Good Shepherd or Good Pastor passage. So if you want to go into more detail of the Hip-Hop Pastor in the context of a record label or some other music business you can download that at the end of this article.

So let’s get into some stats and brief highlights for the Hip-Hop Pastor.

 

 

Heman the Overseer

 

Heman’s name means, “faithful, properly to BUILD UP or SUPPORT; to FOSTER (to promote the growth and development of; cultivate) as a parent or nurse; figuratively to render (or be) firm or faithful, to trust or believe, to be permanent or quiet; morally to be true or certain.” This sounds a lot LIKE A PASTOR to me! He was the PASTOR!

 

“ALL these were the sons ['sons' are symbolic for 'disciples'] of Heman the king’s seer [prophet, overseer (pastor)--Remember in Acts 20, the Apostle Paul called the elders OVERSEERS] in the Words of God [the SHEPHERD/pastor FEEDS the flock with the MILK of Word of God], to lift up the horn. And God gave to Heman fourteen sons and three daughters [It sounds like Heman has his own little flock (Church) of 17 sheep].” (1st Chronicle 25:5).

 

It doesn’t get any simpler than this. If you cannot see that this is a musical pastor, then I don’t know what to tell you.
