Lecrae is one of my favorite Christian artists! He is bold and courageous in speaking the Truth of the Gospel and in tackling social issues of our time. I even gave him a shout out at the end of my book! I respect him for his strong stance in Christ! His recording label “Reach Records” includes many talented Christian artists that make up the 116 crew (named after Romans 1:16). This song called “The King” is a song that pumps me up every time I hear it! It gets me up on my feet praising the True King! It is from one of his older albums called “After the Music Stops.” Now I know not everyone likes rap or hip-hop music. I grew up with it and I love how God has broken through the darkness of the music industry with rap and hip-hop that glorifies His Name! This is Holy Spirit anointed music right here! Enjoy!
Yes, I bump this in my big black Chevy as I roll through town! I’m not ashamed of Jesus! So, turn this one up, and listen to the truth these men are preaching! They rap quick, but it is smooth and they glorify Jesus all the way through! This is for you Lord–you are the King of kings and Lord of lords and I willingly kneel before you and say, “Jesus is Lord!”
“Jesus Christ rule this thing!”
“Call Him the Messiah, Anointed One, the Savior, bro!”
-Quotes from “The King” by Lecrae (feat. Flame)
“I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and makes war. His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself. He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God. The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean. Out of his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. “He will rule them with an iron scepter.” He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty. On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written:
KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.”
Grace and peace to you all!
