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.

The definition of “rebranding” means, “(Business / Marketing) to change or update the IMAGE of (an organization or product).”

 

The Scriptures says,

 

“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God” (Rom. 12:2).

 

Strong’s #4964, “suschematizo, to fashion alike, conform to the same pattern.”

 

So negatively, we should not be conformed to this world, but on the positive side we should …

 

“For whom He [God] did foreknow, He [God] also did predestinate to be conformed to the [SPIRITUAL] image ['From glory to glory even as by the Spirit of the Lord' (2 Cor. 3:18)] of His [God's] Son [Christ], that He [Christ] might be the FIRSTBORN among many brethren [brothers and sisters].’ (Romans 8:29).

 

Strong’s #4832 “summorphos, jointly formed, similar: conformed to, fashioned like unto.

 

Think of how an ugly worm goes through metamorphosis and changes in to a beautiful butterfly. So we are changed, “summorphos,” conformed from our carnal image to the glorious image of Christ.

Barry Lambert

All during the launch of MIC Assembly Network, which is a Kingdom Online iNetwork of Ministries and Businesses, we will be interviewing the team members. Stay tuned!

Tell us a little bit about yourself. The before Christ, how did Christ call you, and where are you at with Christ today?

 

Honestly I cannot tell you of before Christ I was really young when I came to Jesus I know legally I was a sinner because of Adam but I guess there was never any wild living for me before Christ. I was a kid.

 

I was saved 14 over 12 years ago. Shortly afterward I was saying my prayers at night before bed and I heard the Father thunder in my Spirit “Barry I have called you go forth and preach to all nations.” Shortly after that the Lord began to take me in His Word to all the prophets and how God called, them I realized it was the same way God called me. Simultaneously I was having incredible impartations at the local Spirit filled church I was attending and my pastor at the time was confirming the Word of the Lord to with out really sharing so it was a powerful time in my life.

 

Where am I with Christ today? Over the past 12 years I have cultivated an intimate relationship with Jesus. This is a marriage and every day I draw closer to Him.

 

What has God called you to do? What is your ministry or business?

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).

008 Lyrical Clarity [PODCAST]

008 Lyrical Clarity [PODCAST]

Sup famo!

This podcast talks about how there is POWER in agreement ON THE WORD!

Remember to free people from the bonds of Satan …

  1. You need to be SPEAKING the Word of God.
  2. You need to be SPEAKING the Word of God CLEARLY SO THAT ALL MAY HEAR AND UNDERSTAND.
  3. You need to be SPEAKING the Word of God in agreement with God’s TRUE ministers.
  4. And finally, though I didn’t mention this, you need to be speaking by the ANOINTING OF GOD! You natural talent to rap holds not weight. Your talent is just a gift that makes room for you and brings you before people (Proverbs 18:16). But it’s the ANOINTING that breaks chains.

 “And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed BECAUSE OF THE ANOINTING [that comes from the SPIRIT, not your talent to rap].” (Isaiah 10:27).

 And in these end times God is raising up Five Fold Ministers/Leaders who will restore by His Spirit the musical order and the purpose for hip-hop. We are going to talk more about that in detail in the days ahead.
