I posted a picture of NAS on facebook, in a photo shoot with Joel Osteen and Victoria, which seemed to be taken at the Super Bowl. All three were smiles like they have known each other for awhile. NAS is the rapper who just released his now famous viral sneakers that has a drop of human blood on the soles of the sneakers. My caption was “I wonder if Joel was telling NAS about the precious blood of Jesus”…. and of course, I don’t know. I just have discernment – he probably wasn’t. However my ability to look at a photo and have that ability to discern does not mean I was judging the man’s soul. He has already been judged. We all stand under condemnation without Jesus’s blood applied.
And Joel Osteen may have a large ministry and preach a nice feel good about yourself message, but I have yet to hear a message on why Jesus came to die, and why we need Him as our SAVIOR AND LORD. He is so much more yes, but Buddhists can make us feel good about ourselves. Krishna can make us feel good about ourselves.
Jesus didn’t come to make us feel good about ourselves. That was not His mission nor His message. I’m sorry. He came to destroy the works of the devil. He came not to bring peace but a sword. He came so that those who laid their lives down, picked up their cross to follow Him may have life and life abundantly.
There is an angel of light that is not the Angel of Truth. Without discernment, you will not see.
When we stand in the light of His Spirit, we see there is NOTHING that we have to offer that should make us feel good about ourselves except for what He has done through us.
If I know someone that does not know the Lord and does not want to know the Lord, I have no chummy business with that person if my call is to be an ambassador for Christ. If I happen to work with someone who is against Christ, then my business with that person is for work only. My time outside of work is not to be chummy.
If someone comes to me for nutritional consultation, I will love them like a human being and stick to the reason I am there, but beyond that, there is no fellowship light with dark.
Yes Jesus ate with tax collectors and sinners but His mission was to tell about the Kingdom. He had NO kind words for the Pharisee and hypocrite. He called them Broods of Vipers, Snakes, Whitewashed Tombs (painted over to make death look fresh and new again).
I don’t need to be a forensic scientist to look at a picture and see a probable doubt that there was no mention of what Jesus came to do for this man – because if there was – there would be remorse – not chummy buddy smiles. But if I am wrong, and there was some witness, and they just chose to have a photo shoot because they were in the same place at the same time, then I still look at the photo and question why the need for the photo at all? Optics? Who needed the optics? JO Or NAS? Either way, it is wrong.
NAS is on record as releasing these shoes with human blood to desensitize the masses about human blood and how we are all one. This is antichrist satanism. He has already made his decision and is not seeking the Lord. How do I know? Because if he was, it would not have gotten this far. He has made his decision. Can he change? Yes of course, as long as it hasn’t gotten to the point of no return – he does also go on record as having gay sex on stage. The Lord is the one who grants a spirit of repentance and there is a point of no return. Did NAS get to that point? I don’t know but I do know that if he has, there would be repentance and these shoes would be off the market and he wouldn’t be taking opportunity for chummy photo shoots with a pastor who is supposed to be in the business of leading souls into the kingdom. Love people yes. But Scripture is clear.
Psalm 1: 1
Blessed is the person who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked
Walking side by side and accepting the counsel of the wicked is making the wicked (against Christ), a peer, a mentor.
Nor stand in the path of sinners
Standing in the path of sinners is to be on the same journey they are. Not moving out of the way. Not traveling in an opposite direction. It is doing the same thing as.
Nor sit in the seat of scoffers!
Sitting in the seat of scoffers is to sit in the same seat as let’s say Nancy Pelosi or Chuck Shumer or Kamala Harris as they mock and scorn the people who desire righteousness. It is to sit in a position of leadership and authority to make judgment calls unrighteously. To mock is to make fun of, to jeer.
Calling out someone who pretends to be something they are not, is not mocking. It is exposing.
I do not like all people. I don’t even love all people. Sorry. I am not God. God doesn’t even love all people. (Remember Esau?). I have no ability in my own strength to love everyone unless the Lord moves through me for a purpose but love’s mission is not primarily to make someone feel good about themselves. When the filter of Jesus’s blood is placed upon all people, and when the Father looks down and sees the blood applied, whether through their acceptance of Christ or whether they have been prayed for, He sees His Son.
The Blood of Christ is the filter through which the Father looks down and sees us. But the blood must be applied for the restoration of spirit first.
So, could people be praying for NAS and the blood be applied? Of course. It is possible. But that will not stop me from calling out his sin and the admiration that Joel appears to have for him, which sends a very wrong message to Joel’s people and others who watch and follow him, that what he does is swept under the rug just because NAS was prayed for. The axe must be laid to the root and this is a problem with the church in America.
2 But his delight is in the Law of the Lord,
And on His Law he meditates day and night.
3 He will be like a tree planted by streams of water,
Which yields its fruit in its season,
And its leaf does not wither;
And in whatever he does, he prospers.
4 The wicked are not so,
But they are like chaff which the wind blows away.
5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
Nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.
6 For the Lord knows the way of the righteous,
But the way of the wicked will perish.
This is the message of the Cross and the Message of the Passover! The Blood of the Lamb. The Blood of the Lamb to save us from Death.
Not the false, antichrist message that the human blood applied is because we are all one. Don’t be fooled.
