v30_washingtonIf you just look around at what’s going on in the world today, you would conclude that we live in a world where Satan does indeed have some sway. Plenty of Christians will tell you in the physical realm, he can appear to be in charge. For a moment let me used my sanctified imagination and purport how one might function in a world where the devil has power. For those of you, who might think this a bit farfetched, just substitute the term evil for the devil.

v36_KippingDeon Kipping is a name commonly seen in songwriting credits, but his singing gift is now front and center with the release of “I Just Want To Hear You.”

The 12-track album – written and produced by Kipping – is a fusion of pop, alternative, contemporary, and traditional Gospel sounds.

“I wanted to do a project that was eclectic enough to keep you interested, but not so much that you don’t get it,” he said. “There really is something for everyone on this CD, because my musical influences are so broad.”

v30_washingtonThere’s this thing that happens when you read the Bible about miracles being performed to the amazement of hundreds and even thousands. Today, I believe most of us would have a hard time dealing with miracles and merely chalk it up to "back in the day" stuff. That was then. This is now. Sure Christ and His early followers did the unexplainable, the unbelievable, the stuff modern science still can’t figure out. If the truth be told, do you really believe in miracles?

Don't you blink. Your church or gospel group may be the talk of our next issue of the gospel news column.

v30_washingtonI’m sure at one time or another, you’ve heard the phrase the devil is a liar. He specializes in deceit. You know the drill. Harden not your heart, when you hear the Word of God. More often than not, that small voice you hear at difficult times of faith challenges is that of Satan. Be careful when it happens to you because according to the bible, you are indeed in dangerous waters. One of my favorite passages of scripture is, “Some people are like seed along the path where the Word is sown. As soon as they hear it, Satan comes and takes away the Word that was sown in them.” Mark 4:5. My point is that recognition is a most powerful attribute to have. If you could only recognize when you’re being fooled, used, manipulated or lied to by someone or something hell bent on destroying you, then possibly you might be able to handle it accordingly.
