O.k…let’s just get right down to it.
What is this “WAP” song put out by Cardi B? It is a song recorded by American rapper Cardi B, featuring vocals from American rapper Megan Thee Stallion. “WAP” is an acronym for… “Wet Ass Pussy.” Atlantic Records released this song on August 7, 2020 as the lead single from Cardi B’s second studio album.
On September 8, 2020…RollingStone…reports out… “Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s “WAP” is the country’s top track for a third week.“
Now, this is no small matter. THE COUNTRY’S TOP TRACK FOR A THIRD WEEK!
Meaning??? Meaning… Millions upon millions have been buying the “WAP” song…like crazy!!!
For a song…to reach #1 and stay at #1 for…weeks…my question would be this…
What is so *^%$#^% special about this song…that would push it up…to #1…&…keep it there for weeks???
I first came to hear about this song in summer 2020…when folks were dropping it in my lap with… “Have you listened to Cardi B’s new song…that went to #1?” I responded with something like… “What about it?” I was then, told…that this song…was topping the charts.
Cardi B talks very explicitly…& plainly…about sex acts that she engages in…but, there is nothing “special” at all about this song. NOTHING!
For example… She states… “Yeah, you fucking with some wet-ass pussy. Bring a bucket and a mop for this wet-ass pussy. Give me everything you got for this wet-ass pussy.“
So, in other words…for her…her vagina is so wet…because she is sexually excited…& for her…it’s so wet…you need a mop & a bucket. (I’m sorry…but, I needed to stop for a minute & laugh my ass off…because for me, this shit is so *%$#^@$ STUPID!)
I just don’t see the creativity…in that message. I mean…maybe I’m different…but, in the middle of making love (not just having sex)…it has never dawned on me…not even ONCE!…that I should have had a mop & a bucket…on hand…so the person I was “making love” to…could “mop up”…my vagina. So… You see for me, asking him to do that…would just seem awfully cumbersome &…awkward…& JUST over kill. Wouldn’t a tissue work??? DAMN!…at least, a paper towel…right???
O.k…IT’S STILL…SO STUPID!
To me…what makes “WAP” any better than a song that…would say…oh, something like…let me seeeee…YEAH…I GOT… “I was standing along the road one day…& my ass began to itch. The scratching of my ass got so good to me…I stumbled over & fell in a ditch.“
SERIOUSLY! And, we will call the song… “Itchy Ass Ass.” Acronym…”IAA.”
SHI-I-I-I-I-T…it’s more realistic than…somebody needing a mop & a bucket…for their vagina.
Did it surprise me that this song topped the chart for weeks??? HELL NO! Why would it??
Far too many folks…have an insatiable appetite for filth! THAT’S RIGHT!
Far too many folks…gravitate towards the worst side of themselves. YOU DAMN RIGHT!
And, you know I’m telling you the truth!
Galatians 5:19-21 tells us this… “19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.”
Do you see??? UNCLEANNESS…LASCIVIOUSNESS.
Merriam-Webster dictionary defines “uncleanness” as… “morally or spiritually impure.”
Merriam-Webster dictionary defines “lasciviousness” as… “lewd, lustful.”
When we gravitate towards the worst in ourselves…our “flesh” instincts that go against the good that represents God, we are FOR SURE…chasing that damned devil. And, we are chasing his no good ass…at record speed.
Why do we choose to fixate on…& indulge ourselves in the worst…about us??? Because we choose to jump in feet first into that which “feels” good as opposed to that which “is” good. As humans, we can be the most ignorant things walking the earth. We act as if God…failed to give us “good sense.” We act as if God…is NOT…when, for sure…HE IS!
As a daughter of the Most High…our Heavenly Father…I KNOW…how busy the devil is. I know that he is roaming the earth…24/7…seeking out…who can steal from…kill…& destroy. And, I also know that he gets a lot of help from the demons who follow him & from the human workers who follow him. OH, FOR DAMN SURE!
Nothing…done on this earthly realm occurs in a vacuum. Meaning??? Meaning…every action that is taken…causes some kind of reaction. And, the devil also knows this. He takes this into account…in his “modus operandi” (a distinct pattern or method of operation that indicates or suggests the work of a single criminal in more than one crime – per Merriam-Webster dictionary). So, when the devil is influencing and instructing his human workers to do evil…in the sight of God…the devil knows that every action…his human workers engage in are going to cause some kind of reaction.
In all of his devilish ass doings… the devil…has meditated on…thought about…& anticipated… what kind of human actions…will cause a certain type of reaction…from other humans…that he is desiring. And, the devil’s main desire is to have as many humans in hell with him as possible…as a way to say… “f- you”…to the Heavenly Father. You see…the devil (the fallen angel) knows where his ass is going to end up. And, he also knows that the Heavenly Father desires to be reunited to His children. So, for the devil…stopping this reunification between the Heavenly Father & His children…it what it’s all about now. And, that DAMNED devil…will do whatever his wicked ass can do…to succeed at this.
Songs like “WAP” help the devil out…by putting forth filth…into the world. They can easily lure humans to sin against God. The devil, the ultimate “tempter”…loves it when folks like Cardi B…put out songs like “WAP.” Why??? Because, “WAP” appeals to the worst instincts…within folks. In other words, if we focus on the men in this group…then, far too many are focused on “penis” gratification than…on pleasing God. So, what does Cardi B. do??? She writes a song…that can easily lure these folks…into focusing on her “WAP.” And, for what purpose??? To have them…lusting at her??? To make her feel better about herself??? Maybe, make her feel more sexy??? More…desired??? More…0h, who the hell knows…with a heart that puts out such filth!
While Cardi B. uses the “WAP” song to focus attention on her vagina, it can easily be perceived, that from God’s perspective,…she is, at the same time…luring folks away from Him…& towards the devil.
Let me show you…
Jesus plainly tells us…that “lusting” at another human being that is not your spouse…is a SIN against God. Here’s how He puts it… “27 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: 28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.” (Matthew 5: 27-28)
The Heavenly Father is so against “Adultery”…that He included it as one of His “Ten Commandments.” Exodus 20:14 says… “14 Thou shalt not commit adultery.“
Let’s keep going…
James 1: 13-16 states… ” 13 No one, when tempted, should say, “I am being tempted by God”; for God cannot be tempted by evil and he himself tempts no one. 14 But one is tempted by one’s own desire, being lured and enticed by it; 15 then, when that desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin, and that sin, when it is fully grown, gives birth to death. 16 Do not be deceived, my beloved. (NRSV)”
Do you see???
When we are tempted by others (non-spouses)…to lust after them…we follow the devil…straight into hell…if we die physically…while having lust in our hearts…for them. Not my words, but those of God.
In one way or another…far too many of us stumble & blunder our way through life…willfully choosing to indulge in those things…that God hates…24/7. When we groove to songs like “WAP”…we literally place our own heads…on the chopping block…where God holds the lever for the blade.
You see…He never sleeps & He is assessing our behavior…that is before Him…at all times.
What would make any child of God…think that it is o.k. to groove to that kind of “WAP” shit…in His presence??? HUHHH???
How can you gleefully place such filth…at the feet of holiness…& think it’s o.k.???
When you are tempted to lust (by the “WAP” song)…& you give into that temptation by following your desire to “lust”…YOU…have sinned against the Heavenly Father…& death surely sits on your plate…unless, you repent, by being truly sorrowful for engaging in this sin, ask for God’s forgiveness, & turn away from engaging in the sin of “lust.”
And, remember…God reads the heart. He will know for sure…if you are for real or not…when it comes to repenting.
God tells us in Proverbs 6: 20-28:
20 My son, keep thy father’s commandment, and forsake not the law of thy mother: 21 Bind them continually upon thine heart, and tie them about thy neck. 22 When thou goest, it shall lead thee; when thou sleepest, it shall keep thee; and when thou awakest, it shall talk with thee. 23 For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life: 24 To keep thee from the evil woman, from the flattery of the tongue of a strange woman. 25 Lust not after her beauty in thine heart; neither let her take thee with her eyelids. 26 For by means of a whorish woman a man is brought to a piece of bread: and the adultress will hunt for the precious life. 27 Can a man take fire in his bosom, and his clothes not be burned? 28 Can one go upon hot coals, and his feet not be burned?”
Beloved…do not be ignorant about the things of God. Know “filthy” & “ungodly” when you see it & turn away from it…not, towards it. Even just listening to filth & ungodliness, will put you in opposition to the Heavenly Father.
Children of God do not have the luxury of shrugging off “un-holiness” as no big deal. Anything that spits in the face of God…needs to be paid attention to.
You cannot move & groove to any song…that spits out poison for the soul & not be accountable to God. You see… Moving & grooving to that which brings death to our soul…means you are “rubber stamping” that which…He forbids. This puts you in grave danger because you are now in direct opposition to God. You cannot walk in holiness…while your dipping your toes in filth. To take joy in that which…God finds evil…makes you a supporter of evil. Makes you a doer of evil…in His sight.
This is no small matter. Those who do evil…are enemies of God. Why??? Because you are living in accordance with the flesh…not, with the spirit of God.
Romans 8: 5-17 tells us… “5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. 6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. 7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. 8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. 9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. 10 And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. 11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you. 12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. 13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. 14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. 15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. 16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: 17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.“
Remember… You cannot walk with God while your holding hands with the devil. You cannot serve two masters. (Matthew 6:24) Shakin’ your ass to that which God hates…IS NOT…acceptable to God. PERIOD!
For those who make money off of…leading folks astray…away from the Heavenly Father…it is not a good thing. NOT AT ALL!
Jesus tells us… “19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 5: 19-20)
