Why Jezebel Really Hates 'Prophet' Kanye West

Joel Osteen and Kanye West (YouTube/TMZ)

It doesn't take a prophet to discern Kanye West's calling. It's no wonder the spirits of religion and Jezebel persecute him with such a vengeance.

Kanye West is a modern-day prophet on a social justice mission. He's got a bolder and more accurate prophetic voice than some who call themselves prophets in the church today.

To be sure, he's not tickling anyone's ears. He's not operating in the fear of man. He's not striving for a platform. He's not making any apologies. He's not prophesying mates, dates, babies, rainbows and unicorns. And he doesn't offer a sugar-coated "prophecy of the month" with empty promises that leaves ill-equipped saints disillusioned.

In fact, Kanye has already made strong stances on issues some seeker-friendly pastors refuse to take on, including abortion, greed, the plight of single mothers, the justice system, slavery and Christian hypocrisy. At the same time, his lyrics call for forgiveness and love.

The fact that some are already calling him a false prophet (Google it) is noteworthy.

Blessings or Woe?

Jesus once said, "Blessed are you when men revile you, and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be very glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in this manner they persecuted the prophets who were before you" (Matt. 5:11-12). But Jesus also said, "Woe to you, when all men speak well of you, for so their fathers spoke of the false prophets" (Luke 6:26).

What is a prophet? A mouthpiece for God; one who shares the mind and will of God. The prophet does more than predict the future. The prophet does more than edify, exhort and comfort. The prophet drops a plumb line. The prophet challenges sin. The prophet cries, "Let justice roll down like waters!" (Amos 5:24). The prophet calls for a fast that looses the chains of injustice and unties the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free (see Isa. 58:6).

Kanye, like Jeremiah and every other prophet, was called from his mother's womb.
