Christian Rap pt 3 REDEEM THE TIME!!!!

Here's yet another dose on Christian Rap was is called HolyHipHop, the lyrics once again right on. Of course I'm not interested in just good rap, or clean rap, or rap with scripture in it: their are but few artists that actually have a strong doctrinal stance that permeates throughout all their lyrics and that my friends are the only that have my interest.

TIME?? Of all things regretted, time has to be number 1. If anything is a primary stumbling block for the church today, it's our use of time. What we pour our time in, what we think about, what we give little time says much about how what we value.
A song that had to take a great deal of time:
The preciousness of time
by Timothy Brindle
Verse 1:I’ve got a whole lot to say about time/So now I’m a shout mine because it’s about time/God created time so He’s able to end it/Plus He entered time and came and descended/But He’s not ever bound by time/He’s eternally perfect so He’s never out His prime/God always existed even with no time/Then He spoke things into existence in no time/In His divine mind He decreed a time line/To display His glory to creatures and said, “Time’s mine.”/So time or fate is not the sovereign/In fact time is ruled by God the Father/Some say time will tell but actually it can’t/Because He’s already said what will happen in advance/He’s the Lord of time-this rhymes is worshiping/He ain’t serving time- time is serving Him/See time is a space given by God in His kindness and grace/As He’s shining His face/Yet it’s kind of funny-some say time is money/But time’s more precious than money, wine, or honey/Because we’re spending time- there’s no refunds/We’ll never see it again- there’s no reruns/If you lost your hummer it’s possible to cop another/But time is something we cannot recover/Yet I’m baffled/How some think they can preserve time inside of a time capsule/But since the fall of man/The sands of time are turning us all back into salty sand/But our souls have an eternal destination/So use your time to make sure the best is taken/It’s either in preparation to better praise Him/Or further steps toward eternal separation.Verse 2:On Wall Street a rich dude snorts lines/His morning devotion is the New York Times/And Time magazine at times it seems/Time flies as if time had some wings/But this is irony right/While most spend the time of their life trying to have the time of their life/Thinking lies are really true/If you’re busy killing time the truth is time is killing you/But you’re too cool- you love to take your time/You fool- God can come and take your time/Then He’ll search your mind and surely find your works are slime/Once sin’s an eternal prime it takes eternity to serve the time/Reject Him and regret how your spurned this rhyme/You offended the Divine/In hell, like Michael Jackson, You’ll remember the time/Once your time is up you blasphemer/You can’t travel back with a flux capacitor/It’s such a massacre when Christ’s popping the sky/You’ll want to go back in time like Marty McFly/But you sharply despised Christ kindness my friend/And He gave you a lifetime to repent/So next time you’re asking what time is it/Know Christ can come to give times final tick/Your eternity hangs on what you do with time/So use it to trust the Savior of human kind/Whose more than somebody/And at the right time Jesus Christ died for the ungodly/So when the fullness of time came the Ruler of time came/To pull us from prides chain/The time is fulfilled- His kingdom is at hand/So repent and believe and come cling onto the Lamb.Verse 3:If you live to be 90 there’s an absurdity/Even that’s a blink compared to eternity/Christians most of the time we don’t make the most of our time/So let’s refocus on Jehovah’s design/Yet I’m convicted/By how much of my time’s been wicked even since I’ve been Christian/But time is ticking and life is a vapor/So delight and then savor Christ who is our Savior/Please read Ephesians 5: 16 and you’ll find we need to be redeeming the time/Because we’ll give an account of what we did or didn’t do with our time/Don’t just sit in the house/Yeah Christ blood assures securely/But our use of time affects our rewards and glory/To the vine we’re attached/So let’s bear fruit and work overtime like making time and a half/Excuse me teens-it’s useless to be glued as fiends/To the TV and computer screen/No time for folly and gossip and small is the profit/If spending all day at the malls we are shopping/No time to waste playing playstation or taking vacations/Today is the day of salvation/For unsaved pagans don’t waste a moment/Please take time to share the great atonement/Don’t spend it sinning-you’ll dead that syndrome/Instead invest time in how to spread the kingdom/Instead of serving time/Let’s spend time serving the needs of others- and His worth will shine/And since we can’t rewind a minute/Be careful to kill sin because there’s no time for sinning/So avoid sins poison and disaster/And in the end we’ll enter in the joy of our master.
