Exodus 22:22-24 tells us that the fatherless are typically the unprotected and necessitous, specially subject to oppression, and also to God's special protection. As well , Deuteronomy 14:28, 29; 26:12-14 instructions are given that a charitable fund is to be formed out of the tithe, once every three years, for the relief of the destitute. Further, Deuteronomy declares that God is on their side in 10:18. The theme is consistent throughout scripture as well as in Ex. 22:24 God said the punishment for those who oppress these fatherless will die violently and their wives will be widows and their children fatherless.
Is it then really no wonder that so many rappers of violence wind up in a senseless violent death and their women left alone to rear, protect and shelter the children? Children are particularly vulnerable in our society and we who are in positions of power to effect positive change in their lives continue to look away. Ignoring is also a form of oppression. And, we wonder why either do not or cannot maintain a position of prosperity.
A rapper is only as good as his last piece of work. This is why I extol the gospel rappers who propagate the value of a moral life lived before God and your fellow man. The more I host blogtalkradio.com/GoonGospelGrind Hip Hop and Rap Bible Study with Brother Lucious, the more I am convenced that with a concerted effort we will change the world one community at a time. When we realize it not just about those in our household or even those who share our bloodline. But, those who need our help. Those who God has mandated us to care for... the children.
Why is the Fostercare system in this country still overburdened when we see rappers buy multimillion dollar toys and take care of a few family members and friends. Isn't it time that the ones who claim to be speaking the raw truth live some raw truth. The Fostercare system is filled with the children of addicts created by or with the help many of them either directly or through their music. Yet, the accept no responsiblity. And, expect for God to hear them and make them rich. Nebuchadnazzer the Great was not much different. The king of Babylon look out from his rooftop to see his amazing empire, declaring look at what I have created. The Bible says that then and there Nebuchadnezzar is humbled by God. The king loses his sanity and lives in the wild like an animal for seven years. After this, his sanity and position are restored and he praises and honors God.
This is my prophecy and my prayer for the secular rappers out there thinking they're the drug lord Tony Montana. Let them lose their minds until they come to the conclusion that there is only one Lord and He is God. May they step up to the plate and demonstrate that they mean to change the communities of the earth with block parties to establish real relationships that serve as conduits for change locally and globally.
