My daughter Naomi and I playing extreme Crazy! lol!
[Read/Study/Apply 1st Samuel 21:10-15]
By Ricardo ‘ReAsOn’ Butler
Have you as an artist ever had to“fake it to make it?” Come on! You don’t have to lie to the Lord. Be honest! I am going to take this in another direction then what you are thinking. So if you don’t want to be openly honest, then at least be honest with yourself.
Faking it until you make it is not at all at bad in certain situations. I actually see it as a strategy. There is a difference between this and compromising the Gospel to get in good with certain folk in the musicministry, industry, and culture.
I believe in David’s case of acting crazy just to survive around the non-believers of Achish he had to do it. It was life or death in his situation. I’m not saying that it will be of such extreme in your context, but who knows?
Anyway, you all know I believe David was the Lord’s example of all creative arts, music, and entertainmentministries.
This message is not going to be received by many of you. And there are others who will take this message and run with it. That’s the awesome thing about this. Jesus told us a story of four types of hearts in the parable of the sower. This message is only for those who are ready to produce 30fold (gift), 60fold (ministry), to 100fold (office—FRUIT). This is for good hearts. This is for those who have been dying to hear this.
This message is for you if …
• you music ministry is rejected by a good majority of the churches out there.
• you have given up ministering in churches and have taken your ministry into the streets and in the hoods out there.
• you believe that God is restoring the Five Fold Ministry to the Body of Christ.
If so then our mission statement is speaking directly to you when it says,
“We exist to gather together creative artists that have been either rejected or have moved away from “the system” to equip them to be leaders in the Five Fold MUSIC Ministry for the purpose of bringing the Ark (presence, principles, power, and praise) of God back to the restored Davidical Tabernacle (the Body of Christ), the music ministry, industry, & culture spreading faith, hope, and LOVE using our artistic abilities in the process.”
That’s the purpose of this message!
