Reformed Revival By Apostle D.L. Gaskins

REFORMED REVIVAL

By Apostle Detrick L. Gaskins

Kingdom Greetings to you the reader.

As I awakened this morning and checked my social media networks I noticed some posts about REVIVAL. Lately, everything I read stirs my belly waters that I cannot hold my peace. It always amazed me how many of our ministries declare, plan and pack houses full of people for revival services but the true power of God never meets them there.

We dance, shout, buck and spit up tongues only to say at the end of it all “God moved”. I grew frustrated with seeing banners and hearing broadcasts that apostle Yosemite Sam has come to town and left but not see any true results. I got tired of receiving emails, texts and tweets about revivals but not seeing true evidence of a God encounter.

NEWS UPDATE: Official name of the new record label is: MIC Davidical Arts Records! Shhh Don’t tell no body! 

[Read/Study/Understand & Apply Matthew 4:18-22, Mark 1:16-20]

 

By Apostle Ricardo Butler / ReAsOn DiSciPLe

 

The Scriptures say that Jesus told the people of His day,

 

“Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner.For the Father loves the Son, and shows Him all things that He Himself does; and He will show Him greater works than these, that you may marvel.” (John 5:19-20, NKJV).

 

Remember them old “WWJD” bracelets? They stood for “What would Jesus Do?” Those were basically inspired by this verse.

 

Anyway, I (we all) want to always be doing only what we see the Father and the Son doing so that we may,

 

“… declare we unto you, that ye [ALL of you] also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with His Son Jesus Christ.” (1st John 1:3).

 

Anyway, what we are talking about today is recruiting team members for your record label. This is a dual blog. So while I am teaching this lesson, I am actually using this lesson to recruit members for my new label. Oh and by the way, the label is called MIC Davidical Arts Records.

The Top 5 Fans Christian Rappers Can Reach with Their Music

The Top 5 Fans Christian Rappers Can Reach with Their Music

[Read/Study/Understand & Apply Luke 4:16-30]

By Apostle Ricardo Butler / ReAsOn DiSciPLe

It took me almost a month and a half to get revelation on this passage of Scripture for the Hip-Hop ministry, industry, and culture. This is coming off the tail end of my blog article called, “7 Reasons Why God’s Musicians SHOULD Do Better in the World.”

To understand this lesson a little better, I’d go back to that article.

Now the key to understanding the Scriptures for this lesson are the following verses:

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He hath anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor; He hath sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord.” (Luke 4:18, 19).

The 1st Job of a Lyricist is Getting People to BELIEVE You

The 1st Job of a Lyricist is Getting People to BELIEVE You

[Read/Study/Understand & Apply John 4:39-42]

By RicardoButler / ReAsOnDiSciPLe

If you have been paying attention up until this point a majority of my blogs (and some podcasts) have been taking from the chronological order of Jesus’ Life & Ministry.

Every heading that started out with “Read/Study/Understand? & Apply” and whatever the chapter and verses is me letting you know that we are basically doing a bible study of the life of Jesus and how we can learn from Him and do what we saw Him doing but in the music industry.

But we are doing more than that though. We are not just reading it; we are seeking revelation from the Spirit on understanding it and then applying it. While you guys are getting this blog on whatever day it’s published, I didn’t write it the same day. Each of these specific blog posts have been written over a couple of days or even up to a two week period as I wait on the Lord for what He wants me to say concerning the music ministry, industry, and hip-hop culture.

SHAPE Pt 9 Using Five Fold Leadership Gifts in the Music Industry: The Evangelist

SHAPE Pt 9 Using Five Fold Leadership Gifts in the Music Industry: The Evangelist

By Ricardo ‘ReAsOn’ Butler

This is the ninth 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. This lesson will teach you how to look at how God has created and equipped you with all that you are so that you can help others who need your offer.

For God So Loves the Music Industry …

For God So Loves the Music Industry …

[Read/Study/Apply John 3:1-21]

By RicardoReAsOnButler

For some strange reason Christians, or shall I say religious churches, don’t believe that the music industry (or any of the entertainment industry) is redeemable. And when I say music or entertainment industry, I mean the people.

 

For God so loves the world doesn’t mean He loves the planet only. He loves all of His creation, but mostly the people on it. Saying in my title that God loves the music industry means that He loves the people in it, not the music industry itself.
