Gospel Recording Artist Deon Kipping Reveals Stage 3 Cancer Diagnosis: ‘I Believe That God Is Able’.

Gospel recording artist Deon Kipping, who has poured into the masses through his music, is now asking others to pour back into him through prayer.

The “What’s Coming Is Better” songwriter has been diagnosed with cancer and is asking the Body of Christ to intercede for him.

“The bad news is I’ve recently been diagnosed with Stage 3 cancer, but the good news is God is my healer and I know He has it all under control,” said the somber-looking musician in a recorded video message.

“I don’t have a script to read from today. This is real life and in this life I’m requesting your prayers and support,” he continued.

The 37-year-old Connecticut native, who has been singing since the young age of 9, has shared the stage with gospel greats: Kirk Franklin, Hezekiah Walker and Tye Tribbett. His ability to create touching melodies opened a door for Kipping to compose music for Marvin Sapp.

He wrote and recorded “Praise Him in Advance,” which is heard on Sapp’s 2007 album, Thirsty, earning Kipping his first ASCAP Rhythm & Soul Award.

The stricken singer is calling this cancer battle “the biggest fight of my life” and is specifically asking for “prayers for these doctors, prayers for my family, prayers for me, especially my son. Please keep him in prayer. This is a difficult time for all of us.”

Since going public with his illness, the gospel industry has rallied around Kipping. Kirk Franklin, JJ Hairston, Jonathan Nelson, Eric Dawkins and more have taken to their social media pages to rally intercessors.

“I’m not looking for pity. I’m really reaching out for your prayers,” said Kipping in his video message, adding, “I know that I can make it. I believe that God is able and that’s enough for me.”

The World Needs Love: Here Are Eight (8) scriptures Organized by Praisejamzblog to Help You Spread Some || Read For Free

As the body of Christ, what we need now more than ever is love. Here are 8 scriptures to help govern your dealings with others, so that the gentleness and compassion of Christ will shine through your life.

1) 1 John 3:18 (NIV)- “Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.” Real love is so much more than a feeling. The saying “actions speak louder than words” holds true here. If someone claims to love you, their behavior should reflect the love they talk about. How do you treat people? Does it scream love or not?

2) 1 John 4:20 (NIV)- “Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or a sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen.” A great way to determine someone’s true character is by taking notice of their interactions with others. If they are truly a loving person, their attitude towards those around them will attest to this. How would others view your actions?

3) 1 John 3:16 (NIV)- “This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters.” You should have the heart of a servant. If you are truly loving, be willing to sacrifice your time, resources and even comfort for the benefit of someone else. This is the heart of a Christian, someone who really walks in love.

4) 1 Corinthians 13:4 (NIV)- “Love is patient, love is kind…” Patience allows others room to make errors and grow, without being harsh, judgmental and mean-spirited. Are you giving people room to err and still expressing kindness? If not, begin today.

5) 1 Corinthians 13:5 (NIV)- “It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.” Real love is selfless, slow to anger, and holds no grudges. Take inventory of your dealings with friends, families, associates and even strangers. Take into account the biblical definition of love rooted in this scripture and adhere to it daily.

6) Proverbs 17:9 (ESV)- “Whoever covers an offense seeks love, but he who repeats a matter separates close friends.” A friend who lives in love will forgive you when you mess up and keep it moving, rather than constantly reminding you of what you did wrong. Real love forgives. If someone offends you release it and move forward.

7) Proverbs 27:5 (ESV)- “Better is open rebuke than hidden love.” Those who genuinely care will offer you much-needed advice and truth, even when you don't want to hear it. They will tell you what's real when no one else will. A friend who will hurt you now to help you later is better than one who will stand by and watch you walk blindly into trouble. Be a truth-telling friend.

8) 1 John 4:8 (NLT)-
“But anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love.” True love comes from God, so anyone disconnected from Him won't know how to express divine love. Be sure that you are a shining example. Lead the way with your actions. In this, God will be pleased.

Let the love of Christ be apparent in your life. You’ll draw many people that way and spread the kind of joy, compassion and hope this world desperately needs.

Find tangible ways to show love. After all, it is a verb that requires action.

Eight (8) Things Holding You Back + Powerful Bible Verses To Help You Break Free || Read For Free

God has called you to do great things for the Kingdom, so what's holding you back?

Here are 8 things you need to overcome in order to follow God's will for your life, along with scriptures to help you do just that!

1. Unforgiveness. Not only does unforgiveness make you bitter, but it also damages your relationship with God. A grudge prevents your prayers from being answered. Mark 11:25 (NIV) says, "And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins."

2. Impatience.
Things may not be progressing as quickly as you would like for them to, but if you get ahead of God's timing, you'll mess up. So be patient and trust the Lord. As Peter 3:9 (NIV) says, "The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness..." Finally, I leave you with Habakkuk 2:3 (ESV), "For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay."

3. Procrastination.
Now, if you have the go-ahead from God, don't put off your destiny while claiming you're just "waiting for the right time." Life is too short for "later." Psalms 119:60 (NLT) says, "I will hurry, without delay, to obey your commands."

4. Laziness.
Wonder why God isn't answering your prayers to pay the bills, put food on the table, or let your business flourish? What have you done? It's great to have faith, but at the same time, you've got to put some work in as well! Proverbs 14:23 reads, "All hard work brings a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty."

5. Fear.
Don't put your God-given goals on the back burner because you're afraid to fail and afraid to go outside your comfort zone. When you feel fearful, go to Psalms 56:3 (NIV), which says, "When I am afraid, I put my trust in you."

6. Self-doubt.
If God has chosen you for a certain task, don't fret about whether you're ready, or if you'll be good enough. Just go for it. Proverbs 3:5-6 (NIV) tells us to, "Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight."

7. Double-mindedness.
You can't teeter between righteousness and worldliness and expect God to use you. You must be sure of your faith, because you can't serve two masters (Matthews 6:24-Luke 16:13.) James 4:4 (NLT) reads, "You adulterers! Don’t you realize that friendship with the world makes you an enemy of God? I say it again: If you want to be a friend of the world, you make yourself an enemy of God."

8. Constant Sin.
It is true that we all fall every now and again, but the grace of God is there to save us. However, we can't be habitual sinners and use grace, and mercy as an excuse to act out of line with what the Word tells us is right. If you want to be blessed, obey God. Romans 6:15 (NLT) says, "Well then, since God’s grace has set us free from the law, does that mean we can go on sinning? Of course not!"

You can achieve all God has placed you on earth to do, but if any of the things listed here have been holding you back, it's time to get it right. I pray that these scriptures help guide you towards the goals God has set for you and strengthen you on your walk with Him.

Billy Graham: Unforgiveness Can Separate Believers From God

In his syndicated advice column published Tuesday in The Kansas City Star, Graham said that Christians should be forgiving of others just as Christ forgave mankind, and did not cut them off for their sins, but laid down His life for their redemption.

An unforgiving spirit can cut a believer off from God. The evangelist reminded readers, "Now He (God) calls us to forgive others just as He has forgiven us — freely and fully."

Graham acknowledged that forgiveness can be a difficult process and that retaliation is sometimes a knee-jerk reaction.

"It's hard to forgive someone who has hurt us; our natural reaction is to strike back and hurt them in return," he said. Doing so, however, only worsens the problem and any hope for reconciliation may be lost.

The evangelist added that trying to even the score is not wise, and that God will exact justice. The Bible warns against revenge in Romans 12:19, 21: "Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God's wrath. ... Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good."
Close ad X

The evangelist said that Christians should forgive others even if they refuse to accept it. This can help prevent a believer from becoming bitter and angry. "Like a dangerous infection, they eat away at our minds and hearts and turn us into unpleasant people that no one likes to be around," said Graham. "The Bible says, 'See to it ... that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many'" (Hebrews 12:15).



Preacher’s wife Meagan Good, tired of judgmental critics of her sexy outfits, says ‘You’re not God’ || Watch Video

The world says “Baby, if you’ve got it, flaunt it,” and that’s exactly what preacher’s wife Meagan Good plans to do, despite naysayers.

In a televised interview with talk show host Wendy Williams, the Christian actress told religious critics of what they presume to be her way-too-sexy-for-Christianity fashions, that only the;postID=2195554049332861799 good Lord above is her judge, and “you’re not God.”

The constantly rehashed conversation over the “Think Like a Man” star’s decision to flaunt her curves despite the Bible’s command for women to dress modestly, was introduced by the gossip-loving Williams.

“I’ve never had a problem with the modern way that women who are married to men of the cloth dress. I don’t have a problem with it, but a lot of your constituency does,” the 52-year-old no-holds-barred interviewer said.

Williams, who acknowledged the disparity in the upbringing of Good and her movie executive husband DeVon Franklin, noted for the audience, “DeVon is a man of the cloth and Meagan is a woman of the streets.”

Laughing at the “woman of the streets” reference, the 35-year-old who co-authored The Wait—a best-selling book on abstinence—with her spouse, replied, “I say I’m both.”

Good further explained, “I think that’s a big part of it. People are like, ‘Well, I think you need to dress appropriate.’ I’m like, ‘Well, I grew up in the business doing shows off Broadway with drag queens. This is appropriate to me, you know, for my experience.”

 That’s when Williams said, “Well, let me show you how she presented a church award,” after which an image of Good’s infamous controversy-stirring, breast-baring blue dress worn at the BET Awards in 2013 popped up on the background screen.

Good collapsed onto the sofa, expressing non-verbal exasperation over the re-introduction of a four-year-old ongoing hot topic that has admittedly caused her all kinds of grief.

In her own defense, the entertainer, who is currently promoting her upcoming Lifetime film, Love by the 10th Date, premiering Saturday, June 28, said at the time she didn’t know she would presenting the “Best Gospel Artist” award.

“I didn’t even know I was presenting a church award,” Good replied, explaining that the showrunners made the last-minute change.

However, even after the wife of the Seventh Day Adventist preacher learned of the switch, she said, “I’m not gonna lie. I still didn’t think anything, because I didn’t feel that I was inappropriate. But obviously, I learned pretty quick that people had a problem with that.”

Williams followed up, “Well, if you knew you were presenting a church award—a gospel award—would you have still worn the dress anyway?”

Good answered, “I would have worn a different dress, but it still would have been sexy.”

During the intense Wendy-style grilling, little of the conversation was dedicated to Good’s upcoming Lifetime movie, which also stars Kellee Stewart, Kelly Rowland, Keri Hilson, and Brandon T. Jackson. Williams, after all, seemed most interested in delving deeper into the discussion of the intersection of Good’s fashion and faith.

 “Well, when you run into godly people in the streets, do they ever say anything to you?” the “How you doing?” coiner asked.

“Usually, a lot of women come up to me and they’re like, ‘Thank you because I wouldn’t go into church because people say I don’t look the role, or people say I don’t fit in,’” Good explained. “So, I appeal to people who have been bullied and people who have been told they’re not good enough for God when it’s like, you’re not God. Let God be God—period, point blank.”

Good, who will soon play Foxy Brown in a Hulu reboot of the 1974 film that made Pam Grier iconic, told Williams, “I don’t want to be just one thing. I want to be everything. I want to be a superhero. I want to be sexy. I want to be strong. I want to be spiritual. I want to be everything that I’m called to be and it’s a lot of things.”

The one thing it apparently isn’t is the biblical definition of modest.

Gospel Singer Kim Burrell's Views on Homosexuality Come From Place of Love, Says Pastor

When gospel music singer and Pastor Kim Burrell came under fire for preaching a sermon about the "perverted homosexual spirit," many people blamed the Black church for fostering beliefs deemed hateful by many celebrities and LGBT advocates.

Other leaders in the Black church community, however, insist that the Grammy nominated singer's message is rooted in love.

While many accused Burrell and the church of preaching homophobic messages, according to apostle James Duncan, who leads a predominately Black church in Brooklyn, New York, and prayed and prophesied to Burrell, her sermons come from a loving place.

"Kim Burrell is a servant of God and she has to preach the message of the Kingdom of God. It's not her church — a Black or a white church — it's Jesus' church," Duncan, the pastor of Christ Church International, said in an interview with The Christian Post.

"She is preaching a Gospel of love because she is preaching for people to come out of sin," he said. "If our parents corrected us it's not because they hate us, it's because they love us and they don't want us to be destroyed. Jesus is not against the people, He's against the sin which causes us to miss the mark of God."

Duncan explained why the homosexual lifestyle isn't condoned in the Bible by citing Genesis 1:28 where God tells Adam and Even to be fruitful and multiply.

"God put a seed in the man that he would produce. He put a seed in fruit, in the plants, birds and the animals that they would perpetuate life," Duncan said. "The lifestyle of the LGBT community is not what God created and she was expressing to them, 'Look, every man has a choice to make. But I assure you the better way."

Singer Tamar Braxton called such biblical teachings "crazy talk," and Yolanda Adams called Burrell's sermon "hateful."

Burrell, who appeared on the soundtrack for the film "Hidden Figures" film, had two of the film's stars, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monáe Robinson, speak out against her sermon while producer and soundtrack composer Pharrell Willms publicly condemned her sermon as hate speech.

A search for "Kim Burrell" and "Black church" on Twitter reveals that a number of people associate the Black church with homophobia.
Mainstream media outlets have also been propagating this message with headlines like "Kim Burrell Reminds Us How the Black Church Uses, Abuses Gay Christians," on The Huffington Post and "Kim Burrell Can't Get an Amen From These Preachers, Scholars," on NBC News.

Burrell's career began to suffer after the BMI Trailblazers of Gospel Music Honors rescinded her invitation to be recognized for her work at an event on Jan. 14. The 44-year-old pastor of Love & Liberty Fellowship Church in Houston, Texas, also lost her radio show on Texas Southern University's KTSU radio station as well as her television talk show "Keep It Moving with Kim Burrell," on CW 39.

Instead of lamenting the losses, Duncan believes people of God should come together and create their own opportunities.

"They can only take away awards, they can only take away material things. They can't take away your salvation," he told CP. "If we don't have television shows and radio stations the Church has to come together as a body to start our own and broadcast our own."

Duncan insists that Burrell's experience is similar to what Christians had to endure centuries ago.

"When Christianity first started under the Roman empire, they used to behead the leader. It's the same beheading taking place, because if you smite the head of the Church the sheep will scatter and that is what this satanic signal is," he said. "'I'm going to attack the Christian leaders and I'm going to attack and the sheep are going to scatter.' So we can't be afraid of the devil because his works were destroyed 2,000 years ago."

Although many prominent church leaders and Christian entertainers have chosen not to publicly comment on controversy, Burrell has received support from The National Black Church Initiative which is comprised of 34,000 churches across 15 denominations and 15.7 million African-Americans.

The Rev. Anthony Evans, president of the National Black Church Initiative, denounced Black members of the Black community who are speaking out against Burrell's sermon on homosexuality, Black Christian News reported on Jan. 12. 

"I am not sure what has happened to Black folk, that they are willing to denounce ministers who have prayed for them, who have supported them and who have loved them and healed them because a white lesbian says that they are evil," he said, alluding to daytime talk show host Ellen DeGeneres booting Burrell from her program.

"I urge all Black Christians to pray and come back to Church and repent, and let me just say that Queen Latifah, Yolanda Adams and Mo'Nique did not die for you ... and they will not die for you. Only Jesus died for you and God Almighty will have something to say to each one of them going forward."

Evans further emphasized that thousands of churches were standing behind Burrell.

"The Black church is the one moral voice of this homosexual debate," he said. "We have continued to say that we love and adore all of our gay brothers and sisters and there is nothing we will not do for them including laying down our lives, but this does not mean in any way that we endorse their sinful lifestyle and join their radical homosexual agenda that will transform society to a cesspool and cause Almighty God to come and destroy us."
CeCe Winans, the Grammy Award-winning singer who heads in Nashville Life Church where she serves as senior pastor with her husband, Alvin Love, told CP that she wants people who disagree with one another in the church community to set an example of how they can still walk in love.
"The number one thing has got to be love and praying for one another. Never tear one another down in private or in the media," said the singer and pastor who refers to Burrell as her sister.

"If we would just aim to love one another the way God loves us, then there's grace, there's mercy. We, as the Church, we have to be the ones who show the example of loving people when they disagree with us, loving one another when we disagree with one another."
