On Sunday morning, Kanye West was a guest speaker at Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church. He testified how God had powerfully moved in his life and later gave a Gospel performance. During his testimony, Kanye West revealed that God had been calling him for a long time.

“God’s been calling me for a long time, and the devil has been distracting me for a long time. When I was in my lowest point, God was there with me and sending me visions and inspiring me.”

Remembering The Days He Was Still Lost

Kanye recounted a time in 2016 when the remainder of his tour was cancelled because of stress and exhaustion.

“I remember sitting in the hospital [in 2016] at UCLA after having a mental breakdown, and there’s documentations of me drawing a church and … writing, ‘start a church in the middle of Calabasas.’” he shared.

In 2016, Kanye West also released an album called “Life of Pablo”. He called it a Gospel album without really knowing the deeper meaning.

“And I didn’t know how to totally make a Gospel album,” he explained.

Kanye recalled how many of the Christians in his life were afraid to call him out on his sins. 

“They were ‘beaten into submission by society to not speak up and profess the gospel to me because I was a superstar,” he said.

Then he proudly professed, “But the only superstar is Jesus.”

Kanye West and His New Mission

But the Truth did eventually reach Kanye and it set him free. 

“People tell you to quiet your voice and not talk about Jesus, you know, so loud. But everything else is so loud around us. When I’m in California, when I’m in Vegas, they’ve got posters up advertising sex trafficking, because if there’s advertisement for a strip club, that is advertising sex trafficking, because at the end of the night, when they close up, the manager says, ‘How much traffic do we have?’ So, if it’s a man that’s going through things with his family or going through things at work and he feels he has to go there – we all end up participating.”

Kanye West Album Led To Massive Spike On Google Searches About Jesus And The Bible

“… We get constant advertisement for strip clubs and other things like that. But then we bring up the name of Jesus we’re told to be quiet, quiet that down. So, even for someone who’s professing God and saying this is going to be a gospel album, the devil is going to come and do everything he can to distract people from knowing how to fully be in service to the Lord,” the famous singer added.

The Turnabout Of Kanye’s Life

Kanye also joked about the “arrogance and confidence and cockiness” that has helped make him famous.

“The greatest artist that God has ever created is now working for Him,” Kanye said. “… Every time I stand up, I feel that I’m standing up and drawing a line in the sand and saying, ‘I’m here in service to God, and no weapon formed against me shall prosper.’”

He preached to the Lakewood Church members and encouraged attendees to keep their eyes on Jesus.

“Keep your eyes on purity and the love and the grace of God – the grace that allows us to be here today with all of our sins… We know that when we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, we will be granted eternal life.”
