Weekly Rap-Up with Ambassador
One my favorite songs is an old release from Cross Movement Records whereby Ambassador raps about Christ as the “Blood Spilla.” No doubt, our culture today (no matter what culture it is) is familiar with the slang where “er” is dropped from words and replaced with “a” (ie: spiller, spilla), but are we familiar with the day that man was dropped from the cross and replaced with God? In this song, the author, now pastor, highlights the great truth of Jesus in our place as the One who spilled His blood for our sake. He is the Blood Spilla.
It’s the thrilla’ in Manilla
Jesus Christ versus every man’s killa’
Sin and death’s got the whole world getting illa’
but I praise God for the Blood Spilla!
I step back to take a chill pill just to let the thrills build. Back up and now I have to say that I still feel goo-goo about the one the crew brings to you, died to woo you and bring you back like part two. You know His name is the same,it’s Jesus. Every knee will bow demon, man, woman, child! Who is it that brings the blizzard, tames the lizard, makes the greens and the gizzards? If it’s your God let him speak, I’ll hide let him seek, I’ll jump let him leap, let him swim the deep. Did his blood leak? Does your god love me? Will he still propose even though I get ugly? Can he turn trouble to ease? Can his love make me ‘weak in the knees’ like SWV? If he can take the sins of the whole world and swallow them, experience death then resurrect, then I’ll follow him. But if he can’t then I’m staying with my camp. We are a pack of theocrats getting amped because our God is champ! YAHWEH the highway to Heaven’s doormat, transliterated LORD – all caps. Salvation for the creation He offers. No lie that’s fly like a source of the slaughter and torture of the lamb frees and releases non-believers who put their faith in Jesus.
As I take flight in Christ watch my height as I get lifted not off the herb, but the Word – madd gifted. It’s the man of God that has his whole focus shifted toward the God who made the earth and all that comes with it, all of the specifics, the tidbits, the ‘what is its,’ the ‘aw, forget its,’ the whole thing – who did this? You say, “Jesus, I don’t get it? I swear I see nothing but the prosperity of the wicked.” Let’s kick it, so you could see the end that’s predicted when both sin and sinful men get evicted. “I’m with it, but things look a mess!” I’ll admit this. “And sin keeps bringing the stress!” I been witness! But God the Son is going to rise like a biscuit come back and fix it. I’ve got the script. It’s scripted in scripture, but most will miss it, to them it’s foolish, but I’m going to school this district.
Think hard, visualize the ill mob bombarding, fatally scarring the Son of God. Thugs slugging, the blood flooding. What in God’s name made Him take the pain? Much love in His heart for this world that He sparked with the verbal. The same men He made beat Him down ‘til He was purple. And all could see His veins and arteries all for you and all for me. The Savior died. This is a call to be a recipient of His life, because if He didn’t die we are all were going to fry and since we’re in this world dressed in this flesh that He formed, it’s only right that we get our Christ on! Yeah, I’m loving this chilling under God-ruled government. Plus I’m in love with the new blood covenant. No blood no forgiveness, not a smidgen, without the blood kid you only got religion. So marches to D.C. are no more than long trips. Prayer mail sent to Heaven with the wrong zip. Why else do you think He let divine blood drip? Simple: we owe this sin debt and plus tip! And there is gonna be a payday the ‘good times’ will be behind some like the reruns of JJ. The blood of the Lamb Jesus is mandatory, ‘for Thine is the kingdom, power, and the glory.’
