Rapper DMX recently turned the attention off of him and onto Jesus during a concert in Dubai while performing alongside rap artist Coolio, where he engaged his fans to listen in while he spoke about God.
"I could fight off the devil with the spoken word saying, 'devil, I rebuke you,'" said DMX, according to RumorFix.com "I saw that I was heard, because no matter what I've been through I was still filled with the armor that comes with the blood of Jesus."
The message that appeared much like a short sermon on spiritual authority prompted the crowd to cheer the rapper on as he spoke. This is the first time that DMX interrupts one his concerts to speak about God in such a manner. However, the rapper has been vocal about his faith recently after receiving encouragement from fellow rap artist Ja Rule to remain strong amid his personal battles. more >>
