Distinguishing True Humility From It’s Two Extremes: False Humility / Pride


Distinguishing True Humility From It’s Two Extremes:
False Humility & Pride


Chart By Don Schwager


Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.
In your relationships with one another, have the same mind set as Christ Jesus:

Who, being in very nature God,
did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage;
rather, he made himself nothing
by taking the very nature
of a servant,
being made in human likeness.
And being found in appearance as a man,
he humbled himself
by becoming obedient to death—
even death on a cross!

Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
and gave him the name that is above every name,
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,

in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,

to the glory of God the Father.

Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose. Do everything without grumbling or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.”Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky as you hold firmly to the word of life. And then I will be able to boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor in vain. But even if I am being poured out like a drink offering on the sacrifice and service coming from your faith, I am glad and rejoice with all of you. So you too should be glad and rejoice with me
Philippians 2:1-17





Spiritually and Mentally Enslaving Ism’s

In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge: Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction. For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry.
2 Timothy 4:1-5


Did you know that what you believe could actually be creating a stronghold in your own life that is keeping you from enjoying the fullness of God’s blessing over your life?


Here is a list of some spiritually and mentally enslaving “ism’s” that can either keeps people from coming to the knowledge of truth, or keep them from enjoying the fullness of the blessing.

These doctrines of devils contradicts what the Holy Word of the true and living God says, before whom you will all stand one day,



They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator – who is forever praised. Amen

I would go as far as to say, that if you cannot support the very premise of an idea or belief by backing it up with biblical reference, adhering and staying within correct context interpretation, then throw out the idea all together.

God’s Word is for your protection because He loves you.


The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free
Luke 4:18

Come Jesus Come!


Last night I went to hang out with one of my brothers in Christ

As we joined in fellowship outside in a school parking lot it was such a warm and beautiful summer night that close to midnight, we just kicked back and were looking up at the sky

Then he said something that caught me off guard

He said “Imagine Jesus just came back right now how awesome that would be”

I was laying back on the pavement nodding along looking at the clouds in the sky when it hit me…

This is by no means the way that I anticipate casually kicking back before the Lord when He returns

And from no biblical description given, will His coming be some sort of relaxed entrance of Bambi-like grace gently bouncing from cloud to cloud as He descends to Earth

This got me thinking today of how important it is to guard ourselves against the imagination of even other fellow believers

Who through unconscious sinful human subtlety introduce idea’s that can cause us to relax our duties and purposes to the Lord our God whom we truly seek to serve

I don’t know what that day will be like entirely

But I do know this much

Blessed is the servant whom when his Lord returns, shall find him  doing so

“Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then will appear in heaven the sign of the Son of Man, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he will send out his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
Matthew 24:29-31

Random Thoughts


Hey yo I’m back, but nobody was asking where I’ve been
Let me chime in- I go by the name of… never mind
This man writes them joints
God-glorifying lyricism with a style you can’t quite pinpoint
I learned a lot from constant observation- God is patient
And Christ is exalted above the constellations
I’ve been on the low- did some features and compilations
The controversy started some good conversation
Hit timothy on the email, he’ll give you all the details
But right now, my focus is the Man who took the three nails
Two through His wrists, one through His feet
The wrath of God satisfied- the work of the Son is complete
So now there’s two types of people
Those who have atonement and those who pay for their own sin, strife, and evil
And God don’t play- you got to pay- you need to drop and pray
But your motto’s “Not today” and you got a lot to say
But your mouth will be shut like pantomimes
When Jesus Christ comes on the clouds with more angels than Anaheim
Expand your mind; This ain’t about fancy rhymes
Man I’m trying to leave a deep footprint in the sands of time
The truth of God is triple pound cake heavy
But ruthless squads of simple clowns ain’t ready
What you know about a rowdy gospel clique
Rejoicing at the judgment when the wicked get their waffle split?
Revelation nineteen… demonstrates what I mean
You can’t see? Better take some Visine
We shun the famous life – insane spiritual
Life up the name of Christ, yet remain lyrical
Speaking urgently, it’s an emergency
The self-centered emcee’s favorite word is “me”
Our favorite word is “He”- or should I say “Him”
Since God is triune, I guess our favorite word is “Them”
As for me, what can I say man? It’s real in the crucible
My life’s a daily funeral, but Christ is still beautiful
I’m fired up for ministry- but business is something
I ain’t did nothing and I’m tired of the industry!
I don’t create for a check, and it ain’t for your respect
I’m enduring all things for the sake of the elect
That’s why cats be like, “Shai, man! You preaching to the choir!”
I’m like, “Dog, have you seen some of these choirs?”
They need to be preached to- it’s heathens in the pews
It’s treason that they choose, looking for reasons to abuse
God’s grace- walked up to the altar at the age of eight
Live like the world after that
And think they’ll make it through the gate
That theology is straight from the father of lies
In mad pulpits, Satan rocks a disguise
A plot he’s devised so sheep remain stifled
Because many times I’m like, “Are we reading the same Bible?”
For instance: recently went to a “Christian” concert
Not knowing what to expect, hoping to see God work
The lights went dark, they introduced him, then he came in
I gotta hand it to him – he was very entertaining
The crowd was insane, about a thousand and change
He was wilding on stage; had them shouting his name?
People in the audience on their way to hell
And son had more jokes than Dave Chappelle
It’s like he was ashamed of the light; This is backwards
Christian rappers playing games on the mic
Non-divine topically, trying to shine constantly
You’ve gone beyond the line with some kind of blind philosophy
With rhymes designed sloppily – this is absurd
Dig in the Word- get your mind refined properly
The gospel’s not a commodity- So whether in poverty
Or prospering, it’s proper to give shouts to my God rowdily
Why are people so quick to hand the mic to jokers?
Good thing the Lord is in the driver’s seat like a chauffeur
His shekinah thunders with no minor blunders
And sometimes I wonder if the Anti-christ might be Oprah
It puts me in a true rage that she pumps the New Age
On television- like five days a week
Yet only a few gauge that that won’t get you saved
From hell, so listen- ‘cause my God came to speak
He’s warning you to flee from the wrath to come
By putting faith in His matchless Son
I did it now God will definitely forever be next to me
In ecstasy- what a destiny for this heavenly refugee
And this right here is just some random thoughts
From a vessel of mercy that the Lamb has brought
So welcome to The Solus Christus Project
Son, we just gettin’ started and we got a lot left!

Hey yo, I’m back but nobody was asking where I’ve been
If you didn’t get it the first time around, I’ll try again
The God-man Jesus Christ crucified for sin
He died to win trifling type of men – like me!
Where should I begin?
The self righteous Christ-less life that I was in
I was never a thug,
I was cognitive conceptual, quote unquote positive
interrogative intellectual
Eastern philosophy, New Age theology
challenge me I de-construct your arguments logically
Now I see the fallacy
I was hypocritical, un-biblical, miserable,
pitiful individual
eyes closed, legs crossed, wounds open on my knees
I was oh so deep but couldn’t stop smoking trees
I justified my sin by saying it was natural
an actor going after the theatrical for capital


 Adored bagging dames as an art – yes indeedy
On a sure path to flames as I sparked up the beatie
Now I broadcast His fame in the dark to the needy
Cause the Lord tagged His name on my heart in graffiti
Take it easy, Christ is amazing believe me
I tasted and seen He’s more good than baked Zete
A contract written in blood: a grace treaty
A convict pierced from the judge, hey sweety
The Holy Jehovah dove in clothed with skin
broke in atone for sin then rose again
So odious rode into homeless vultures could approach His throne
And hold closer to Him, and wont be condemned


 So we magnify the lamb slain
We head the call and spread His cause
without an advertising campaign
The world can’t understand, they aim to discover
Why we live to exalt the name of another
Cat’s is hunted
into Satan’s trap they plummet
they know they need the Lord
they stead backtracking from it
Laughin cause they blunted
At the last judgment
Blast of the trumpet
Christ coming back smashing stuff
Who want it?
You better give the Lord the respect that He deserves
Or get beheaded with the sword
That’s projected from His Word
But yet He’s benevolent
With reverence we embrace Him
A heavenly residence He sat in the preparations
Check’in your decadence is the evidence that you hate Him
Revelling in devilish things, your preference is Satan
Jesus took the penalty for our breaking the law
He’s the medicine we’re taking
So we’ll never be forsaken
But hell is the destiny that you’re facing
Cause your spirit’s more dead than the presidents that you chasing
God of His Sovereignty wired me to invent
Rhyme patterns to glorify Him is the intent
In case you’re inquiring what I meant is
Our music is inspirational
We inspire you to repent!
Fall on your face before the Messiah who was sent
to give life to the highest extent now


 I’m coming to you straight from the furnace of affliction
So for the glory of God I’m earnest in my diction
And not only my diction, I’m earnest in my living
Cause through the blood of Jesus,
I’m purchased and I’m risen
Through mercy I’m forgiven
So I’m hungrier than ever
So you can keep your fame, props, money or whatever
Got my eyes on the light of Christ the blazing One
I celebrate Him cause I know what He saved me from
Back in the days trashed in my ways
Saturated with darkness
Til Christ activated the spark
Captivated my heart
I used to doubt Him
Now I see I can’t live without Him
So what I look like not telling everybody about Him?
We explicit
 Because Jesus is exquisite
His people eagerly contemplate His next visit
Heaven is Christ centered
We’ll be praising His name
Since that’s truth then then right now
we making it plain
Yo the Gospel in my lyrics inextricably woven
Cause a sinner like me was unpredictably chosen
On some “yo fam, you kidding, you joking”
You accepted Christ? Congratulations!
You get to be broken!


 It should be obvious who is our Master
But we’re living in an age of the superstar pastor
The superstar rapper
Yo son listen here
When the Sun comes out the stars suppose to disappear
The worlds lost and hurting
They need this awesome Person
But emotionalism results in false conversions
Most preaching today only produces stony ground hearers
That’s why the worlds looks at the church
And only found mirrors
It’s not about works
Or how loud you shout in church
Cause there’s a lot of devout jerks
Without new birth


 But getting back to the matter at hand
State of emergency
For the world that’s caught up in fashion and glam
Peep maverick man
With his elaborate scams
Like baggin up grams
Just to put some cash in his hands
His favorite rapper raps blasphemous jams
For his passionate fans
To the wrath of the Lamb
So praise God for the Gospel
Extravagant plan
Attracting His fam
From Afganistan to Japan
And the Lord will receive the reward for His sufferings
Endure the lovely kingdom; abhor all other things


It’s embarrassing
His spiritual riches are embarrassing
Stuff you couldn’t even afford if you were Harrison
The Lord Jesus Christ is the source of my Wellsprings
Cause no body knows like michelle pharell and kim burrell sings
If I get the chance I’ll tell kings
The Lord’s in a class by Himself
Like a teacher after the bell rings
When it comes to giving Jesus props I must say
I don’t have enough bars like a cell phone in a subway
So thank you for your patience
Stay tooned for stories
Lamp mode represent and God reap the glory


All praise to the name of the Savior who reigns
He’s taken our blame
Embraced all our shame
He’s raised from the grave so His fame we proclaim
Salvation by grace through faith in His name

All praise to the name of the Savior who reigns
He’s taken our blame
Embraced all our shame
He’s raised from the grave so His fame we proclaim
Salvation by grace through faith in His name


 Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them

All Shall Stand Before The Judgment Seat of Christ

for zeal for your house consumes me, and the insults of those who insult you fall on me
Psalm 69:9


There’s only One Faith, One Lord, One God

Choose this day whom you will serve

Straight And Narrow
Yea yea


You should not spread a false report
You should never join hands with a wicked man

Unless you praying for that man in which you say to that man
It’s as if you’re both standing before the face of God

Dogs chase cars
They call themselves dogs

Call their counterparts what dogs counterparts are called
B-I-T-C… y’all know the last letter

A lot of that and several racks
will make you trapped forever, yea

I’m familiar with that mind set
My hood was wild giving nightmares to Vietnam vets

So I’m never speaking out of context
if ever I should ever mention Pyrex, Glocks, and Tek-9

Extend the latter in your spine
Air holes around the mound
The bullets blow out like a big sale
These big weapons’ll put you out a business in hell
Even there the Lord still provided a witness

Remember the revelation of the rich man
Luke sixteen twenty seven
but I would hate for them to see it on the other side
Possibly hear their mother cry and the Spirit no longer hear them
Their body incoherent

So I’m volunteering to pray and cause interference
Don’t be embarrassed our minds are clearly in different era’s
I don’t fear you I fear God you cannot compare us
That part of me you tryna scare is no longer there

That tough talking man that’s really bluff talking
Spiritual warfare man that ain’t even us talking

That gun talkin man will have you somersaultin
Look now everybody flipping
How I’m suppose to make a difference, huh?

If only I make mention of the Author of mankind
Owner of my existence

The only one who came and got me out of prison
broke us up when me and death was out there kissin
Y’all ain’t listening though….



There was a rich man who was dressed in purple and fine linen and lived in luxury every day. At his gate was laid a beggar named Lazarus, covered with sores and longing to eat what fell from the rich man’s table. Even the dogs came and licked his sores.

“The time came when the beggar died and the angels carried him to Abraham’s side. The rich man also died and was buried.
In Hades, where he was in torment, he looked up and saw Abraham far away, with Lazarus by his side. So he called to him, ‘Father Abraham, have pity on me and send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, because I am in agony in this fire.’

“But Abraham replied, ‘Son, remember that in your lifetime you received your good things, while Lazarus received bad things, but now he is comforted here and you are in agony.
And besides all this, between us and you a great chasm has been set in place, so that those who want to go from here to you cannot, nor can anyone cross over from there to us.’

“He answered, ‘Then I beg you, father, send Lazarus to my family,
 for I have five brothers. Let him warn them, so that they will not also come to this place of torment.’

“Abraham replied, ‘They have Moses and the Prophets; let them listen to them.’

“‘No, father Abraham,’ he said, ‘but if someone from the dead goes to them, they will repent.’

“He said to him, ‘If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, they will not be convinced even if someone rises from the dead.’”

 Welcome to the faith!


Thanksgiving and Prayer

We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you, because we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love you have for all God’s people— the faith and love that spring from the hope stored up for you in heaven and about which you have already heard in the true message of the gospel that has come to you. In the same way, the gospel is bearing fruit and growing throughout the whole world—just as it has been doing among you since the day you heard it and truly understood God’s grace. You learned it from Epaphras, our dear fellow servant,who is a faithful minister of Christ on our behalf, and who also told us of your love in the Spirit.

For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives,so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light. For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

The Supremacy of the Son of God

The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.

Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior. But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation— if you continue in your faith, established and firm, and do not move from the hope held out in the gospel. This is the gospel that you heard and that has been proclaimed to every creature under heaven, and of which I, Paul, have become a servant.

Paul’s Labor for the Church

Now I rejoice in what I am suffering for you, and I fill up in my flesh what is still lacking in regard to Christ’s afflictions, for the sake of his body, which is the church. I have become its servant by the commission God gave me to present to you the word of God in its fullness— the mystery that has been kept hidden for ages and generations, but is now disclosed to the Lord’s people. To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.

He is the one we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ. To this end I strenuously contend with all the energy Christ so powerfully works in me.
Colossians 1:3-29
