Kanye has done many things in his 42 years, and up until the last few months, a casual observer may have drawn the conclusion that he had life by the tail, and he was going for a ride that most people would envy. He has a beautiful bride, several children, and had a lot of financial success, making millions upon millions of dollars from his fashion business and his music.
Yet with all the material success, he would tell you that he was missing something, and I believe a good description of that “something” is spiritual peace of mind. Over the past few days and weeks, we have shared several articles speaking of Kanye West’s turn to embrace his faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and away from the secular world. You can take a look at some of them right here.
Now that he’s experiencing the peace of mind, he’s openly sharing his faith with the world around him, and his testimony at a recent spur-of-the-moment meeting in Baton Rouge, Louisiana resulted in something for which we can all rejoice. Over 1,000 people raised their hands during the altar call at the close of the service!
Thousands of people gathered for Kanye West’s “Sunday Service” in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, after a last-minute announcement Friday.
Curvine Brewington, a pastor at Crossroads Church in Lafayette, Louisiana, attended the event and shared his experience on Instagram, saying there was an “altar call” and “over 1,000” people gave their lives to Christ:View this post on Instagram
Tonight, @candacebrewington & I got to experience Kanye West’s Sunday Service at @bethany_church in Baton Rouge. If you’ve ever doubted the legitimacy or spiritual impact of this #sundayservice project, simply look at this incredible shot taken by @rebeccabradley__ during the altar call. YES, I said ALTAR CALL. 😲 Tonight, worship was lifted, the name of Christ was exalted, the Word of God was preached, a multitude prayed together, the Gospel was clearly proclaimed, and an opportunity to respond was given. In a crowd of 6,000 people from all walks of life, all ages, and all races, i witnessed over 1,000 people respond to The Gospel by raising their hands to accept Jesus as their Lord & Savior! 😱🙌🏾 Say what you want, & think what you want…. But trust me when I tell you – The Spirit of the Living God was indeed present. I danced, wept, stood in awe of God’s redemptive work, & can honestly say that tonight I witnessed a new wave of REVIVAL first hand. #Jesusisking • Isaiah 43:19 “Behold I do a NEW thing. • 1 Corinthians 1:27 “But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. • #excited #inspired
