Kanye was the last guy anybody expected to give his life to Jesus.

But things started changing a few years ago. In 2014, during one of his concerts, he referred to himself as a Christian. That same year, his flamboyant wife, Kim Kardashian, made the announcement more official. “He has had an amazing evolution of being born again and being saved by Christ,” she said.

Many Christians rolled their eyes. Kanye West? No way. But with the Oct. 25 release of his new album, Jesus Is King, the unpredictable hip-hop artist made it clear that he’s rapping for the Lord now.

Earlier this week on James Corden’s Late Late Show, Kanye seemed to glow as he talked about his new faith. “God has always had a plan for me, and He always wanted to use me,” said Kanye, who is 42. “But I think He wanted me to suffer more and wanted people to see my suffering and see my pain … So now when I talk about how Jesus saved me, more people can relate to that experience.”

Jesus Is King is Kanye’s ninth studio LP and his first foray into gospel rap.

      Im on a closed FB page of Christians at various levels of maturity in Christ..Some are filled with the Holy Spirit and some obviously are not..One of the administrators has alot of influence on some of the other people in the group,and he isnt SpiritFilled and has a very hard edge.Please pray that the Love and mercy of Abba will prevail..Ive seen a lot of spiritual growth in several of the people,especially the founding member.He is good friends with the hardened one and I am requesting that the Holy Spirit guide this precious man (Tres) to see the error of his friend.
      This Kanye West situation is such a blessing to the world and we should be lifting him and his family daily to the Lord as a prayer covering,rejoicing in what God is doing..But it is causing a big wedge between me and my friend (Tres) because he and the hardened one are of a mind that Kanye is either too young a Christian or else using this as a publicity stunt…Please pray…
