Weekly Rap-Up with Flame

One of things I love about rap in general is that you can say much more than you can in a typical song where singing is done. This means that you can really convey more information to the listener. In this week’s Rap-Up, Flame covers one of the most profound truths of the Christian faith – the Trinity. Have you ever heard a regular song cover this before? Certainly not, but if so, they didn’t cover history as well!

God eternally exists as being three in His personages. Father, Son, and Holy Spirit and each person is fully God and there is only one God who subsists. So chew on this because this is meat and I’m certain of this. His prerogative could have been to conceal Himself, but we serve a God who has chose to reveal Himself to be certain of who we’re serving. Let’s search the text because it’s urgent that we worship Him for who He is. The topic of the Trinity should evoke some emotion for those who are chosen and also for those who oppose it examine close He’s distinctive in His entities that’s why we contend for the Trinity in serenity. We have no Christianity if God is not triune in that case we are were saved by whom? Then creation was made by whom? Then redemption was made by whom? The consummation will take place by whom?

If we could peer in the past and see a system called dynamic monarchianism; another system modalistic monarchianism; before the session we will focus on one of the isms: modalistic monarchianism. Get to the core or the center where the belly is popularized by a guy named Sabellius trying to fight for the position of monotheism traditionally held by Jewish in their religion, and that’s true but he started messing up in his position, and said that God manifested Himself in different modes at different times – this is real twisted! That’s why a bishop named Athanasisus had resided in a meeting in Nicea in 325 A.D. where they debated was Jesus God, and if He was, was He the Father the first time, Jesus the second, and Holy Spirit the third time while affirmed that the Father is God, that the Son is God, and the Holy Spirit is God? Good, that ain’t going to solve it cause the problem is this – it’s the simultaneousness that he denied!

Modalism is back and its now packaged as Oneness Pentecostalism and its growing in numbers now like the cost of living and when they hear this I’ll be labeled a Pharisee but the Assemblies of God already labeled it heresy in the 20th century when it first emerged. And ever since its birth its been hurting the church. In conclusion a myriad of questions I ask because its confusing and steering away at the masses. I pose to you question number 1: you mean to tell me that the Father is the Son? Well who was He praying to in the garden of Gethsemane? I guess you’ll say He was praying to His deity? So you’re saying that His human side is praying to His divine side? That is Father? In that case then there are two beings in the person of Christ! Is that what you are seeing? No, that’s not the scriptures that’s confusion! And it takes stabs at the hypostatic union! And that’s that the one Jesus is 100% man and 100% God – not 100% Father and 100% Son.

    The line that mentions the Assemblies of God, I am wondering if you are saying they are against modalism or promoting it?

    Joey, these lyrics were written by the artist Flame and not me. So I can’t speak for him but I am quite confident that he is saying that the Assembly of God denomination rejected modalism as truth. They “labeled it heresy.” So they were against it.
