UPDATE: Fred Hammond On Snoop Dog’s Gospel Album

Proverbs 18:13 says “He who answers a matter before he hears it,
It is folly and shame to him.”

Then verse 17 says….“The first one to plead his cause seems right,
Until his neighbor comes and examines him.”

There’s two sides to every story. We love to assume that we have the whole story when in fact, we only have a very small piece.

I am guilty of this in many ways. Including hearing this situation regarding Fred Hammond doing a gospel album with Snoop Dog.

I answered a matter before I heard it.

First, we all know what the Scriptures says in 2 Corinthians 6:14-18.

There must be a distinction between the believer and the unbeliever. There is no equality with the righteous and the unrighteous. There can be no fellowship with light and darkness. NO accord with Christ and Belial. Etcetera.

Based on this premise of Scripture, and another one in James 4:4 that friendship with the world is “enmity with God.”

When it comes to these two Scriptures, it’s very easy to put on the Pharisee hat and attack something without hearing the matter.

Based on actual fact, not word of mouth or hear say, this story is more than what meets the eye.

First, I didn’t directly apologize when I should have for acting and saying something without some knowledge as to what is really going on behind the scenes. We make these mistakes to crucify any Christian that may be sent by God to be the one that may be instrumental by God to reach someone that others may not be in a position to reach.

The only thing that I will say about additional insight that some or most of us are not privilege to see or know, is that we who are in the Body of Christ are zealous for the Lord. But we must never let zeal cloud our judgment based on assembling and segregating points of Scriptures to justify a point. In many cases, we pontificate our points and blaspheme anyone with a plausible view. We do take it personal and we must never that mistake.

We do a better job attacking the people that are legitimate in the Body of Christ than attacking the forces of darkness.

Consider this Biblical example. The disciples were upset at Jesus for talking to the woman at Jacob’s well. As the woman said, “Samaritans have no dealings with the Jews.”

Jesus ministered to her anyway because something bigger than inner fighting among cousins would take place. The whole city came out to meet Jesus all because Jesus didn’t condemn the woman to hell but offered her living water. In another incident, Jews bought a woman caught in adultery. Jesus said, “Neither do I condemn you. GO! And sin no more.”

We have learned the art of condemning people before hearing the matter.

It is called “Rush to judgment.”

We’ve established a tradition over the commandment.

Jesus said “Go into all the world” and we’ve established a tradition of “condemn all the world.”

Jesus said, “For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.”

Why is it that we want to call fire down (see Luke 9:51-57) on those that need the fire of His compassion, not to excuse sin, but to save them from sin?

Have we become so detached from the power of the gospel that we quickly condemn, not only the world, but anyone that may be used as an instrument to reach the world?

We’ve therefore, established the tradition of condemning the people whom God might be using to win a soul into the kingdom.

We all know the dangers of the world diluting the power of the gospel. We’ve seen where “Hip Hop” has and is continuing to have a demonic influence on young Christians that never bring fruit into maturity because of never disassociating themselves from the world and it’s music.

We know the dangers of a well known minister of the gospel in song to join a man of the world to do a “gospel album.”

The world has a nasty habit of making worldly music appear safe to listen to.

And when you add to the mix any “gospel” to the world, it is a potential trap for darkness to lord itself over unsuspecting believers.

But on the flip side, what if the Lord is using Fred Hammond to reach Snoop or his faithful listeners?

Jesus still knows how to plant seed in places where we don’t believe His seed has a chance. Jesus still knows how to reach the lost when we’ve failed miserably. Jesus still knows where the fish are and casts a wide net into the deep, even when we don’t “approve.”

What if the Lord knows something that we do not know?

We think that we know everything that God is doing.

Is the gospel powerless or powerful?

Who gave us the right to say that God would never use Fred Hammond or Tasha Cobbs or anyone for that matter in the music world? With Tasha Cobbs, I do not have all of the information so the jury better remain out on this one. As wicked as Hip Hop is with its demonic purpose, darkness cannot force light to another part of the room.

Look at what Paul said in 1 Corinthians 5:9-10…..“I wrote to you in my epistle not to keep company with sexually immoral people. Yet I certainly did not mean with the sexually immoral people of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or idolaters, since then you would need to go out of the world.”

Is Fred Hammond keeping company with Snoop Dog?

When we mean keep company, we mean celebrating and participating in smoking dope, sexual immorality, partying, clubbing, hookers, harlots, porn, solo and acting out sex with prostitutes.

There is a difference between “keeping company” and being among people that may or may not be involved with sin.

What if this is Snoop’s last chance for coming to Christ and Fred Hammond’s gospel track is the seed planted to start something happening?

Who are we to tell the Lord how to do what He does best without anyone’s permission?

When you were in the world, God did everything to reach you. The Lord is doing the same for Snoop. Like it or not.

I didn’t know this and my daughter ran information to me that Snoop’s mom is a preacher and has been praying for her son to come to the Lord. Could this be the one thing in this album that shows signs of the Lord getting ready to manifest a “glorious salvation?”

We do not know, but to rush to judgment and answer a matter before it is heard, is folly and a shame.

I do not endorse Snoop’s gospel album nor do I recommend listening to it IF Snoop is not legitimately saved. We’ve all seen what happens with the world that take on doing something for “God.”

Separation from the things and activities of the world is different from celebrating and participating in the things of the world.

To my knowledge and based on first hand knowledge, Fred Hammond neither celebrated nor participated in the past or present worldly activities of Snoop Dog. Let me also say that making a gospel album saves no one. Knowing the Lord in the pardoning of your sins in repentance and receiving salvation, being born again by the power of the Holy Spirit is the way to salvation.

Participating in a Snoop Dog gospel album raised serious eyebrows.

In fact, it brought about wrath from some segments of the Body of Christ on Fred Hammond.

James 1:19-20 says…..“So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God.”

Many of us believe that we should remain separated from the world and not bother with them. However, when Jesus is found among the world in the nation of Israel, he gets a puzzled look from His disciples who would later be commissioned (Pun intended) to do the same.

Before they turn away from the Lord there was a couple that sang a song “Jesus, With Skin On.” We are the one that is to be salt and light in the world. Who are we to withdraw our light or the light in someone else because they were asked to do a legitimate gospel track?

Let’s be careful and not be quick to condemn unless we know without a shadow of a doubt that legitimate believers celebrated and participated in the sins of the world. When such irrefutable evidence of collusion in sin is confirmed, it is expected of us to sound the alarm to warn the believer.

But when there is no evidence, the rush to judgment is no different from answering a matter before we hear it.

Many will not like what I shared. That goes with the territory. But I am not absolute and God is. All of what we say is subject to be judged by God.

If this is a plan to save Snoop before it is too late, let’s not interfere with how God may be doing this. Based on inside information, not hear say, this plan to save Snoop was in the making 17 years ago on Snoop’s tour bus. That’s all I will say about it.

Could it be that God is using a man that isn’t supposed to be here?

Fred Hammond told a story of his about him being aborted almost. Could it be that God saved Fred Hammond’s life just to be used by God to get Snoop into the kingdom? Could it be that Snoop’s mother’s prayers may be answered because somebody prayed to save Fred’s life in the womb?

Gamaliel said a few words of wisdom that I will share to this new generation.

“Leave these “men” alone. If this plan or this work is of men, it will come to nothing, but if it is of God, you CANNOT overthrow it-lest you even be found to fight against God.”

SOUND THE ALARM

Fred Hammond and Snoop Dog? Nicki Minaj and Tasha Cobbs?

What do they have in common?

When it comes to Secret and Overt Sexual Sins, this is the only thing that is in common.

For the record, two people are “entertainers” in the world, and the two persons are “entertainers” in the “church.”

The backgrounds of Snoop Dog and Nicki Minaj is clearly of the world with heavy sexual immorality.

There is no evidence of these people coming to Christ but what has happened is that there is serious infiltration from decades ago of worldly people doing what appears to be “righteous” things like singing as guests on either world albums or “gospel albums.”

Lately, it’s been the thing to be on a record with some of the worlds recording artists in either spectrum but we tend to forget that their spiritual connections identify who they work for.

Infiltration is part of devil’s plan to dilute the efficacy of the gospel.

If the gospel is the power of God unto salvation, what is this power for?

To deliver sinners from sin and the power of satan.

When you see sexual immorality solidifying its hold on people, worldly entertainers will go to great lengths to appear righteous when they are not. Since the inception of the called out ones, the enemy sought ways to destroy the institution placed in the earth to redeem the lost.

The Lord knew that this would happen and called it “Tares” among “Wheat.”

Both performers of the world have found willing partners to enter the gospel market to demonically influence unsuspecting believers. Se all know that they weren’t the first. First they were covert. Now, they are overt.

We know that there are baby Christians that still need maturing and developing in Christ in prayer and obedience to the Word of God. These are the ones that satan is after.

They do not know any better. Then there’s the believers that been in the house of the Lord for a while and dibble dab back and forth in the things of the world. Never wiling to part ways with the world, they associate themselves with the wicked and struggle every day.

When the worldly entertainer’s brand of “wickedness” appears, they fall into the trap of sexual sin.

They are the “Don’t Judge” crowd that defend the indefensible.

You can’t defend sin when God condemned sin in the flesh of the Lord Jesus on the cross.

For you who are struggling, these are the last of the last days.

People that we thought were on fire for God, we thought that they would stay with God. But we are finding that they’ve turned their backs on the Lord for riches, fame, and notoriety of the world.

If they have true pastors, they should and would have warned them about their association with these instruments of perversion. Or their pastors did warn them and they just did it anyway.

Snoop Dog was involved with producing porn. Nicki Minaj is a sexual seductress.

The combination of these two in the “gospel music industry” is cause for sounding an alarm.

You would do well to avoid them, unless you want to associate yourselves with the wicked. For which James 4:4 is looking at you to convict you of your defection to satan.

If Snoop Dog and Nicki Minaj has come to Christ in true repentance, by all means, provide conclusive evidence.

Porn, The Movies, & Avoiding Provocative Women In Church

Since covering the porn scene among professed believers and coming across mind numbing statistics, we see that nothing’s changed in terms of believers decreasing their exposure to sex filled movies, shows, and skin exposure in church services.

Porn watchers are enslaved to the images and enslaved to sexually manipulate him or herself in masturbation to satisfy themselves.

Porn is only an accelerant. More on this later.

The ability to be immodest is continuing in church service. The deliberate lack of discerning certain shows that what we expose ourselves to, is rampant.

In other words, we dethrone God to enthrone sin.

First, to address the modesty issue.

Men and women are exposing themselves to wearing certain articles to attract the opposite or same sex.

We all know that it’s summer time out there but it doesn’t give anyone the authorization and blatant excuse to wear things that we know are sexually provocative.

If you have to pull up your blouse to cover your cleavage, you know that this is a red flag. If you have to pull down your high skirt, you know it’s a red flag.

When you have to wear a cover to cover up your legs in church, it’s a red flag.

Now, this is not wrong to cover up in and of itself. At least you recognize that too much flesh is showing. It should be a very loud indication to you that perhaps your dress is a little too short.

Modern dressing doesn’t allow to look “old fashioned.”

It’s not fashionable these days. But holiness is the requirement when entering and participating in the holy worship of our Holy God.

As I was going street preaching one day, I walked by a “Seventh Day Adventist” Church and observed these red flags. I’m not an Adventist, so scratch that thought. I was walking by that church.

They appeared to be attending “church” but looked like they were going clubbing for men. Legs and cleavage.

A few years ago, I was listening to an interview of a believer interviewing a former prostitute. She said that in a well known mega church in California, female prostitutes would enter the service and sit in close proximity of their “client” while the client was sitting next to his wife.

She also said that there was no fear of God in the house of worship because the preacher would never preach on holiness.

Let me say this, that even if a preacher were preaching on holiness, for some, it will not make a difference.

If a person is bent on sinning sexually, only their death would stop them, unless they catch themselves and repent.

In the book of Numbers we see a story of Zimri and Cosbi.

Zimri was a leader and brought a Gentile woman into the camp against the commandment of the Lord. He and she walked by the Lord, the tabernacle of meeting, Moses, Aaron, and Phinehas.

At that time, the plague was moving throughout the camp because of sexual sin with the Moabites. Phinehas picked up a javelin, went into the tent where Zimri and Cosbi were, and killed them with one thrust of the javelin.

It stopped the plague and Phinehas was blessed by the Lord because the zeal of God within him judged the sin.

This was the “example” that Paul mentioned in 1 Corinthians 10.

In many of our regular Christian services, woman are wearing less and less. They are pushing the boundaries and men that aren’t disciplined will look at them lustfully.

Now we know that it is one thing to come to church sexually provocactive but when a man has lust in his heart, he doesn’t care what a woman is wearing. So there is two sides to this thing.

It’s not always one sided.

Intentional sexual dressing for church service to immorally tempt a man is more than provocative. It crosses the line of modesty where men, who are struggling to maintain their consecration to God are doing everything in their power to ignore them.

Feminine power to sexually influence a man immorally is demonic. It is passive manipulation. On the other hand, lust filled men is demonic and it is active manipulation. The collision course of the two brings death in their lives.

Most men do not know how to “bounce” their eyes to avoid looking at deliberate sexual provocation inside the service or outside as they are walking the streets.

But the sexually disciplined man will find a way to completely ignore these immoral women.

Not every woman that comes to church is immoral or deliberately intend to entice a man. There is holy women that come to church for the right reason and there are men that come to church, walking in wholehearted consecration and dedication to God.

But let’s face it.

Sexually immoral women will do everything to attract the attention of a foolish man.

Proverbs 7 speaks a such a man that went looking for sexual sin. The married, spiritually speaking adulteress found him and coerced him into her house.

It’s the same in today’s world of church service.

More and more, we are seeing an abandonment of morals and men diving into their house to commit adultery, homosexuality, bisexuality, and fornication.

But the door into sexual immorality has always been that the sexually suggestive tv ads, movies, and shows that introduce porn. The internet always have teaser ads next to the articles that you are reading. Reading the internet news is no different. The sexually suggestive ads draws a man’s attention. Photo shopped pictures increase the attractions in making pictures appear larger than normal.

Provers 27:20 says that “Hell and destruction are never full. So the eyes of a man are never satisfied.”

The Lord said to me as He was instructing me….”No sense in looking at someone that you can’t have. If I can’t have her, there is no sense in lustfully looking at her.”

Makes sense to me.

The basics of temptation are recorded in James 1:14-15.

A man is enticed when he is drawn away with his own lust-filled desires.

In other words, the moment he desires illegal sex, the enemy sends the enticement.

The enticement is a direct suggestion (temptation) to pursue that which is not lawful.

Sin is conceived in the desire to fulfill an evil fantasy. Sin, when it is finished, brings forth death.

That’s why in the church service, you have to be very careful not to allow your eyes to “travel” from the presence of the Lord.

Which brings me to emphasize again that the purpose of porn is no different than an accelerant for fire. When evil passion is in the heart of a man, he will go to places to fulfill that evil passion. Acting out sexually in adultery, fornication, bisexuality, homosexuality, and masturbation, or all of the above.

So be careful about the movies that you expose yourself to.

Radical amputation is the ability to cut off the right hand and pluck out the right eye to avoid sexual sins. If you are not willing to do without movies, you run the risk of being so overwhelmed with lust that you deliberately fall into sin.
