Cursed With A Gift! (Smarshilo’s Testimony)
I remember when I was writing Rap to one of my songs I was working on then… And I wrote a line
“am cursed with the gift of rap… ”
The line was deep, heavy and appropriate to the subject I was composing to, “Heavy Pikin” but I still said God forbid, lol!
Rap in its culture has always been about bragging and proving that “I am the best” or better than my circle. It is deeper than mesmerizing people’s emotions by singing sonorous melodies to appease their feelings. Its a deeper level of creativity and with great implications, to those that understand it, it’s a great tool for Movement in Revolution.
I know I was deep and most times I speak prophesies in my verses cos I have a natural deeper understanding of lines and words, beyond wordplay and punchlines. I come up with lines that I later ask myself where it’s coming from.
When I expounded on this line “cursed with the gift of rap… ” I knew Curse was more like bound or chains and Gift like blessing or freedom in expansion. To a random listener, it may mean that I possess the Mastery of Rap in my dimension.
But let’s go deeper is it really possible for a gift to be cursed and corrupted or one to be cursed with a gift?
Well in my opinion,if a computer or other devices can be corrupted with a virus, that it malfunctions and doesn’t deliver its expected goal so does every other good thing intended for a good purpose.
Let’s consider Wisdom for example,
Bible will say;
” Wisdom is the principal thing, therefore get wisdom….’ Prov 4:7
Here wisdom is a great virtue to be sort after right?
Ok let’s see the wisdom in the corrupted state, still from the Bible;
“…. thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground… ”
That was God talking to Angel Lucifer that is now Satan! Who corrupted his wisdom for pride and his beauty that God decorated or “Gifted” him with.
I was so consumed with Rap and Music in so much that I had no or little time and freedom for my soul to even ask why am I here on earth.
I always wanted to deliver the next “killer’ verse and “murder” every rapper, beat, and sound. And guess what! I was doing it real good to the amazement of fans and friends but to the expense of my soul and time.
So it can be said I was glorifying the Artist, Craft or Gift beyond the Giver! At the expense of my soul and Time. And That’s what everyone who’s talent isn’t glorifying God is doing right now.
In case we don’t know, The whole Trade and Transactions in this life is with Soul and Time..hence the Bible said ;
For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?
It’s was said that our lord spent 30years to build his ministry in earth and he was sold also for 30pieces of shillings.
What is Gift and its Purpose?
If I give you a gift, maybe a fine Rollex Wrist Watch and I find out you’re not using it, or maybe you used it to beautify a section of your house I will feel bad and so unfulfilled.
One of its definitions of Gift says “Special Ability ” so one question that may arise is who makes and gives these Abilities?
I am sure you will agree with me that it can only be God!
God who made us in his image has deposited in us his various forms of uniqueness and specialties to function as talents and gifts to glorify his name!
“Even every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him”
“I consider a Gift, Cursed if the purpose or aim is defeated”
“… for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them”
When you find this knowledge, Revelation, and truth, it is said that you have found your purpose!
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee…
It is this Truth and knowledge that the devil confuses people with money, fame, and care of this world.
The Bigger Question is what is your gift?
How much has it Glorified the Giver?
