Why I Think Stevie J is a Fool

Hold what you got!

I John 2:24
See that what you have heard from the beginning remains in you. If it does, you also will remain in the Son and in the Father.

I saw something that really disturbed me on Love and Hip Hop Atlanta, Stevie J. had on a T-shirt that said, “I am God” as he sat in between his baby’s mother and girlfriend with a smug, sinister grin proclaiming, “I’m in control of this situation because both of them are on my bus.” What disturbed me more than his stupidity and arrogance was the fact that he really believes he’s God and the message he’s sending to so many other young people about the sovereignty of God the delusion that we are our own gods. We have lost our respect and fear of God.

Psalm 53[a](A)
1 The fool(B) says in his heart,
“There is no God.”(C)
They are corrupt, and their ways are vile;
there is no one who does good.
2 God looks down from heaven(D)
on all mankind
to see if there are any who understand,(E)
any who seek God.(F)
3 Everyone has turned away, all have become corrupt;
there is no one who does good,
not even one.(G)

In this age of fading reverence for God, we as believers, in God and Jesus Christ must hold on to what we heard in the beginning. In the beginning, God said, “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery, you shall have no other gods before me.” (Exodus 20:2-3). We’ve got to hold on to the belief in the Holiness of God and not put anything or anybody, not even ourselves in his place. We make ourselves God when we live life by our rules and not God’s. We make ourselves God when lose humility and sight of the true and living God who liberated us from death. It’s time for us to Wake up!

The devil is deceiving us through all of the dysfunctional lies disguised as reality TV which is really the indoctrination of Satan and the pedagogy of the oppressor to perpetrate the ignorance of the captive camouflaged as entertainment. If we are going to hold on to what we have and turn a generation back to the true and living God we have to do what it says in Revelation 3:2-3:

Revelation 3:2-3
New International Version (NIV)2 Wake up! Strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have found your deeds unfinished in the sight of my God. 3 Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard; hold it fast, and repent.(A) But if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief,(B) and you will not know at what time(C) I will come to you.

Dear God,

Thank you for the Wakeup call! We will not allow the enemy to drag down a generation on our watch. It’s only so much foolishness we can take until righteous indignation takes over. Strengthen your Holy Spirit in me so that I can overcome the agenda of Satan. I’m holding on to your unchanging hand and when you see me slipping don’t let go of mine.

In Jesus Name,

  1. I totally agree with this post. What is most upsetting is that many people even Christians nonchalantly look pass clear blasphemy. We have to stand up to this foolishness and at least acknowledge that beliefs and actions like those of Stevie J are contrary to the will of God. We must constantly fight against the devil's attempt to brainwash us with the help of God.
