Asaph the Hip-Hop Evangelist
By ReAsOn DiSciPLe
As it draws closer and nearer for my new book release called, The ‘MC’ (which means Master Constructor) Part 11 – Five-Fold Davidical Leaders: Influencing the Hip-Hop Ministry, Industry, and Culture, I’m going to start breaking down and talking a bit about these Five Fold music ministers from the Life of David.
I will not talk much about David because we’ve been talking a lot about David already. But for this blog series I will talk about some things that were not covered in my new book about the Five Fold Hip-Hop Ministry.
Asaph the Recorder
Asaph’s name means, “collector, to GATHER TOGETHER FOR ANY PURPOSE.” Is this not what the Evangelist is called to do? To go out and GATHER for the Lord‘s Wedding? He was the EVANGELIST!
“A Psalm or Song of Asaph. In Judah is God known [Asaph was PREACHING THE GOSPEL by making known the Father]: His name is great in Israel [And Asaph was PREACHING THE NAME OF THE LORD--CHRIST!].” (Psalms 76:1).
“Asaph the recorder [Heb: 'mention, make mention, make mention of, recount, record (WITNESS, be a witness), recorder, remember, make to be remembered, bring to remembrance, call to remembrance, keep in remembrance, put in remembrance'].” (2nd Kings 18:18).
“All these were under the hands of their father for song in the house [Church] of the LORD, with cymbals, psalteries, and harps, for the service of the house [Church] of God, according to the king’s [apostle's] order [charge, mandate] to Asaph [the evangelist in the Scriptures (as far as I have seen) always worked in direct contact to the apostle] …” (1st Chronicle 25:6).
