The ego is still intact. Kanye West never fails to leave the audience astonished over his startling remarks and it looks like the artist is at it again.
The 42-year-old Jesus is King rapper spoke about his spiritual journey at a Church in Houston, Texas on Sunday where he said that there he is the greatest artist ever created by God.
Speaking about his faith, the singer said: “I know that God’s been calling me for a long time and the devil’s been distracting me for a long time,” he said.
“When I was in my lowest points, God was there with me and sending me visions and inspiring me, and I remember sitting in the hospital at UCLA after having a mental breakdown and there’s documentation of me drawing a church and [wanting to] start a church in the middle of Calabasas,” he added.
“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 went on.
“Jesus has won the victory. I told you about my arrogance and cockiness already. Now the greatest artist that God has ever created is now working for him,” he said.
West made it clear throughout that he sees himself as a changed man.
“All of that arrogance and confidence and cockiness that y’all seen me use before, God is now using for Him. Because 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 told the crowd.
Kim Kardashian West watched her husband from the front row as parishioners angled for photos. She was seated next to Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick.
West’s appearance came after 30 minutes of music from the Lakewood choir, which sent hands and phone into the air. Several attendees were dressed in their Sunday sparkle best, and they shouted words of affirmation at West – until he stopped them.
“I go into these streams of consciousness when I’m talking, and when you speaking in the middle of it, it distracts me,” he told one particularly vocal man. “I really appreciate the support, but I would like for everybody to be completely silent so I can let God flow through me as I speak to you guys today.”
