More than 1,000 people committed their lives to Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior at Kanye West's latest Sunday Service. Calling it "a new wave revival", a Louisiana pastor said 1,000 Christians raised their hands and committed their lives to Christ at Bethany Church in Baton Rouge, Louisiana on Friday night.

"In a crowd of 6,000 people from all walks of life, all ages, and all races, I witnessed over 1,000 people respond to The Gospel by raising their hands to accept Jesus as their Lord & Savior!" said Pastor Curvine Brewington, of Crossroads Church in Lafayette, Louisiana.


 

But the evening didn't end without some controversy. There were complaints that organizers sold "brunch" for $55 a plate. At least one woman demanding her money back for unsavory-looking food, according to Dailymail.com.

Kimberly Kinchen posted a Facebook image of her plate that she says she paid $55 for. The meal consisted of 2 pancakes, what appears to be a sausage patty and 2 slices of bacon. Kitchen was not satisfied after taking 2 bites of the pancakes.

Kitchen contacted a local news station to complain. "Can y'all cover a story on this because I want my coins back. This is the wonderful & COLD brunch BUFFET we are being served," she said, adding, "the server looked at me crazy when I asked for another pancake."

More than 1,000 people attended the 'Brunchella' church service in Louisiana on Friday to hear the anointed one, Kanye, speak and perform selections from his No. 1 album, Jesus Is King.

Kanye brought three of his four children - North West, 6, Saint West, 3, and Chicago West, 22 months - to witness the revival.

Kanye, who is on the autism spectrum, understands better than most that young people need Jesus more than ever.

Pastor Brewington posted a photo that showed hundreds of worshipers raising their hands during an alter call.

"If you've ever doubted the legitimacy or spiritual impact of this Sunday service project, simply look at this incredible shot taken by @the.smitan during the altar call. YES, I said ALTAR CALL," Brewington wrote.

"Tonight, worship was lifted, the name of Christ was exalted, the Word of God was preached, a multitude prayed together, the Gospel was clearly proclaimed, and an opportunity to respond was given," he added.

Kanye West has officially turned his back on secular music after accepting Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior.

Rap music helped make Kanye West a multi-millionaire many times over. But according to Kanye's pastor, rap music is "the devil's music," and he wants no part of it.

Adam Tyson, West's pastor at Placerita Bible Church in California, says Kanye turned his back on secular music after he recently became a born-again Christian.

"One time, he told me that he wasn't going to rap [anymore]," Tyson said in an interview.

"I said, 'Why not?' He said, 'That's the devil's music'. I said, 'Hey, man. Rap is a genre. You can rap for God'."

Tyson told Kanye he could still use his God-given rap talent to make millions for his church.

But Kanye told him the devil's music was responsible for his sinful behavior.

"The guilt of sin brought him down low. He would say the devil basically brought him to a place where he just felt like he was in bondage to his sin. So he said, 'I got delivered'."

Kanye also said his wife Kim Kardashian's revealing style of dress was becoming a problem for him.

He said Kim's provocative style of dress was negatively affecting his "soul and spirit."

Kanye West's plan to take his popular "Sunday Service" gospel revival to Jamaica has angered local pastors there.

The rap producer is debuting his revival in Kingston's Emancipation Park on the Caribbean island on Friday night, but local pastors have taken exception to his plans.

The island country is deeply religious and the Jamaican people consider themselves Christians. They take the Word of God very literally.

Religious leaders in Jamaica question the star's commitment to God, despite West's claims he is a born-again Christian.

"I don't know him (West) as a Christian and someone who is being led by the Holy Spirit," local pastor Stephen Blake told the Jamaica Star, according to WENN.com. "We have to examine the motive here."

They are suspicious of West's plan to take a team to the venue to cleanse it of impure spirits before the Sunday Service.

"From a spiritual perspective, I am not 100 per cent comfortable," Blake explained. "Therefore, I am calling for the church to pray against this, just in case there is anything negative associated with this service that Kanye is coming to Jamaica to keep."

The clergyman expressed fears the "Jesus Walks" musician is embracing religion for publicity or personal profit.

"Some say that he is the Antichrist," Blake said. "Him go mad one day, then him say Trump the next day, and then him come with religion. If his motive is to get attention and stay relevant, then that is wrong."

Another local minister, Father Sean Major-Campbell, advised "caution" over the star's motives but thought the event was just an "entertainment option".

Others, including Jamaican dancehall producer Cordel 'Skatta' Burrell, are angry over the disruption brought by West's event, which has been backed by the Jamaica Tourist Board.

Burrell added: "His Jesus agenda is solely for the benefit of generating sales for his upcoming gospel album and he's only playing chess."

The rapper's gospel album, Jesus Is King, and an accompanying documentary film are due out next Friday, Oct. 25.

This is the first time West has taken his Sunday Service gospel revival outside the U.S.

A scandalous video featuring a man who resembles Pastor David Wilson of Texarkana, Texas, and a woman who is not his wife has gone viral on social media.

The video shows the man performing a sex act on a woman. But a family member says the video isn't real and someone is trying to ruin the minister's good name.

The elder Wilson is the senior pastor of Bibleway Ministries and World Out Reach Inc. in Texas.

"I'm a minister of 32 years, have pastored for 25. I'm a motivator and Love to see lives transformed to the Glory of God," Wilson says on his website.

But his critics say Wilson is only motivated to chase skirts in the church.

Wilson's daughter says the man in the video is not her father. She said the scandalous video is a case of mistaken identity.

"Sometimes we unknowingly share our names with complete strangers. But that does NOT mean we share the same Mission or Faith! I am the daughter of the Great Doctor David E. Wilson. This other David E. Wilson is a man who just so happens to share same name as him."

Correction: according to a loyal reader, the daughter was referring to her father - another pastor with the same name from Dallas TX - after trolls swarmed her dad's Facebook page because the pastor from Texarkana TX (who is in the video) deleted his FB page.

The sex scandal unfolded when someone uploaded the X-rated video to Twitter. The video shows a man of the cloth perfuming cunnilingus on a woman.

The video was captioned: "Pastor Wilson out here doing the lords work."

"That's not the first lady," commented one church parishioner.

Another Twitter user commented: "The Pastor out here speaking in tongues."

And a third Twitter user wrote: "Dam what church is this how do I become a member ASAP pastor knows what he's doing tho amen."

Sandrarose.com is a family-oriented blog, and as such, I will not post the vulgar video. But it isn't difficult to find if you know where to look.

Former musician Kanye West dropped the trailer to his much-anticipated IMAX gospel film "Jesus is King" on Friday.

The film is billed as a "one-of-a-kind experience" featuring songs arranged by West in the gospel tradition along with new music from his forthcoming album JESUS IS KING.

Jesus is King was filmed in the summer of 2019 and brings West's famed "Sunday Service" to life in visionary artist James Turrell's Roden Crater, a never-before-seen art installation in Arizona's Painted Desert.

The trailer opens with a graphic that appears to be golden steps leading up to a white obelisk as a Heavenly choir sings "Ohhhh! Saved by His Grace. It's in His will. His will."

The camera pans inside the white obelisk which is replaced by a blue background bearing a Bible verse.

"In the words of Jesus Christ, 'The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand, repent and believe in the gospel.' Mark 1:15."

West, who is on the autism spectrum, understands better than most that today's generation needs Jesus more than ever. He utilizes the power of imagery and art interacting with gospel music to reach the unwashed masses.

The film opens in IMAX theaters on October 25, 2019.

Limited tickets are on sale now at jesusisking.imax.com.

Pastor Jamal Bryant caused waves at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church when he redirected Kanye West's donation to Atlanta's Morris Brown College in the name of Kanye's late mom, Donda West.

Kanye held his popular "Sunday Service" at Bryant's New Birth Missionary Baptist Church on Sunday, Sept. 15.

Before the service Kanye presented Bryant with a sizable donation for the church.

But on Sunday, Oct. 13, Bryant told his congregation he didn't want Kanye's money after the rap musician expressed his support for President Trump and the Republican Party in Utah.

"Abraham Lincoln was the wig party, that's the Republican party that freed the slaves," Kanye told the crowd of about 9,000 worshipers in Utah.

Bryant was livid.

"I went into prayer, and it dawned on me in prayer that Dr. Donda West, who was the mother of Kanye West, is a former professor at Morris Brown College," Bryant said on Sunday.

Bryant said he was redirecting Kanye's donation to Morris Brown in Donda West's name.

"I am not a runaway slave," Bryant said.

"To that end, Mr. West made a significant donation to New Birth Cathedral, but I do not want to be guilty of double speech. I met with my team today and the donation that he made to our church, I am now redirecting.

"I am thankful for the gift, thankful the seed, thankful for the sacrifice but I don't want to be seen in any way, shape or form to be seen in cahoots with philosophy or with policies that keep our people in bondage.

Bryant went on to say he was "not a preacher that can be bought or comes with a price tag."

Morris Brown College has been in dire straits financially since losing its accreditation in 2002. Only 50 students out of 2,700 remain on the historic campus.

Fans of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West don't know what to make of the news that the rapper-turned preacher didn't attend his children's Baptism in Armenia, Kim's birthplace.

Kim, 38, shared several beautiful photos on Thursday with her oldest daughter, North West, from inside Armenia's first cathedral, Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin, The Blast reports.

"Thank you Armenia for such a memorable trip," Kim captioned the shots.

"So blessed to have been baptized along with my babies at Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin, Armenia's main cathedral which is sometimes referred to as the Vatican of the Armenian Apostolic Church," Kim explained.

According to The Blast, it's unclear if 6-year-old North, who was already baptized in Jerusalem years ago, was a participant in this baptism.

But one person who was noticeably missing from the baptism was the children's father, Kanye.

According to several news outlets, the baptism happened on Monday and included Kim's three youngest children: Saint, 4, Chicago, 2, and Psalm, 5 months.

But Kanye didn't witness the baptisms in Armenia, as he is busy preaching to the unwashed masses during his popular "Sunday Service" rolling gospel revival in the United States.

Kanye, a 42-year-old Gemini, recently took a break from his revival tour to meet up with former NBA player Rick Fox, 50, in his native Bahamas.

The stars went to the Bahamas to help rebuild communities that were negatively impacted by Hurricane Dorian.

Kanye West took his "Sunday Service" rolling gospel revival to Salt Lake City, Utah on Saturday to preach to the unwashed masses ahead of the presidential election in 2020.

"Abraham Lincoln was the wig party, that's the Republican party that freed the slaves," he told the crowd of about 9,000 worshipers.

"People want to call me a coon because I chose my right - in America, we got the right, right? We got our own right to our opinions, right?

"Somebody trying to tell me, because of my color, who I'm supposed to pick as the president. You Black so you can't like Trump," Kanye said, as the crowd booed.

Kanye continued, "I ain't never made a decision only based off my color! That's a form of slavery - mental slavery!"

West also slammed social media users, adding, "Do not read comments on the Internet. These people don't know you like that. Social media is designed to make you think slower... They want to slow you down and control you."

According to WENN.com, the controversial rap star also touched on American prison reform, adding, “There's one in three African-Americans in jail in this country."

But there was no mention of his long-awaited and oft-delayed Jesus Is King album, which was expected to drop on September 27.

A Florida church is ministering to the unwashed masses - one strip club at a time. The Newsound Church, which currently worships out of West Palm Beach high school on Sundays, purchased the old Double Dee's Ranch strip club to house its congregation.

Parishioners are well aware of the sinful behaviors that went on inside the Double Dee's Ranch, but their motto is, "Let the sinless amongst you cast the first stone."

"I don't mind being in a building that was a strip club any more than I mind somebody walking in our doors that had at one time in their life been a stripper," Pastor Josh Mauney told CBS Miami. "We believe we can bring hope and healing to any location, that's what we're trying to do."

Mauney says he expects the new church to open its doors next year. He also expects to welcome some of the strip club's former customers into his flock.

According to the NY Daily News, the new church will hold 600 to 700 worshipers once they remove the stripper poles.

For the past 2 weeks rap producer Kanye West has taken his Sunday Service gospel revue on the road in America. The first stop was in his hometown of Chicago, Illinois, where he preached to the unwashed masses last weekend.

This weekend Kanye brought his traveling gospel revue to Atlanta at the invitation of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church leader, Jamal H. Bryant.

The 42-year-old Gemini wore a white t-shirt and grey sweatpants. In video on the church's website, Kanye caught the Holy Ghost onstage in the packed mega church as the choir sang rousing gospel songs.

Kanye's Sunday Service started out as exclusive worship gatherings with his inner circle in a field in Calabasas, California.
