MercyfulGrace with “Dogma’ – I despise it by Àrèmúorin – Anthony Everest ::

“I despise dogma. Especially, religious dogma! Go read your bible and pray on it, for divine revelations, before you minister to people”. 

MercyfulGrace Blog

There is a huge difference between those who were raised on the bible, (before they could talk) and those who picked up the bible last night. Some where dragged up on the bible, while some were raised on it. I was raised on it. Does not make me perfect, but it makes me a little wiser.

If you (are religious and) don’t want me to speak to you on the things you don’t want to hear – don’t come at me, with what you just read, last night, that you don’t know how to process, yet! I have great spiritual gifts – that you would make your jaw, drop, to the glory of God. Don’t make me go there. 

There’s a difference between ‘being given, blessed’ and taken for granted! Go Figure! Many a time, I choose to rise above it. But comes a time – when you must fight, for what you know, is right.

All I’m saying is, even if I cut my head off, and gave it to them, they will still have something not nice to say about me. It’s comforting to know who you are deep within. At the end of the day, God only approves and totally disapproves.

It’s shocking how envy is the root of hatred. Mercy! Even if I gave haters, the sun, moon and stars, they will still ask for blood, and hate you still. I’ve learned to love myself unconditionally ..’ God Is Love*. There is nothing above Love*.


Mathew 7:21 :: “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven!

Now, who are you to judge? There is nothing worse than a ‘Christian Bigot’ …’ Some one get me out of here on ::

Galatians 5:22 :: “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness”.

Maybe, if you were a little more open, then people would be more like you, then they’ll hear what you have to say. As far as I am concerned, Jesus is the Son of God. Go head and prove me wrong ..’ Having said that, I have love for all my fellow men. May God Truly Bless Us All! Amen ::

Romans 10:12 – For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile–the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him,

Galatians 3:28 :: There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

Love is the truth …’ If it contradicts love – then it’s not the truth.

Let me take this as an exercise. Yo :: If I have fallen out with you – or vice versa, now, in the past or in the future; I hope it won’t be too long before we patch things up.

Two of my friends have died this year around the same time – whom I held grudges with. If only I could turn back the hands of time – I’d say I love them one more time. One died of Breast Cancer and the other, Liver Failure.

The friend who died of liver failure, invited me to his pad up north for the weekend, and we ended up having a petting argument. Then he told me to leave, and never call him again. I always thought about him, and our pettiness (even thou we sang Luther Vandross songs together, with lots of great memories in between). He loved Luther so much.

Now he’s gone. Bet he would have never thought this would happen to us. Chris was a great man. In spite the situation surrounding his passing – we had a lot of jolly memories. I nearly called, but never made that call. For the simple reason, only to find, out today, he was very, very sick and died at a very young age. Now Life is short. And for what? The hustle. If …

Money never will buy you class …

It’s all about the money :: none of which we are taking anywhere, now or never. Hence. Love is the only truth. I stay in Love* :: Have a beautiful day. I beg of you – God Is Love and My Only Truest Love :: Hope this love finds a way to your heart :: Amen ::

MercyfulGrace Blog Diaries with ‘The Holy Spirit’ – Listen :: by Àrèmúorin – Anthony Everest ::



I went to a church once where they were told not to speak on anything apart from what they decide – in other words, do not discuss what the Holy Spirit – reveals to you, unless, they hear it first!! – So unbelievable!


That’s a sign of a Church that died long ago …‘ (Peace like a river – joy like a mountain ..’) – remember that song?

Reminds me exactly why – I shared this the Multiple Gospel Award Winning – ‘Lurin Cato’ – and I wrote – 


“How are you my sister in Christ … 
Been a while – send me some good old fashion Energy
someday soon, like I’m sending you – Amen

Love you – Always.

Was just listening to your Mercyfulgrace interview, again, yesterday.


I come to understand – some have eyes and choose not to see.
Like the soon coming King, who was mocked and nailed to the 
Cross at Golgotha – by his own people, yet they did not know, 
nor believed !!! – “


In JESUS we are complete! It’s a Xtain Belief – goes back 2000 years. You be surprised there are people saying – why did no one tell them about Jesus. They think of Jesus as a Swear Word – Mercy! The love of God has no bounds. I speak from experience. 

Fact – I was shopping one day at my local and entered into an Islam vs Jesus debate, (where I passionately spoke about Love* – and not Religion*, as I do) and it came up. A father confessed; met a little girl who said  this to him – ‘Why did no one tell me about Jesus?’ –  while volunteering. Some even ask – How?, in Church. Thats even, those who are XTAINS themselves …’

Stunningly humbling – and overwhelming shocking; the state of need for love in our society, often taken for granted! Its 2014, and some have never heard about the Real Jesus – yet everyone, more or less has an awareness of the Greatest Soap, Flim or Pop star alive or dead! You know this is an interesting paradox.


I feel – the same way, the first time I ever heard of Jimmy Hendrix. I was laughed at and mocked in an internet cafe, at my local – when it came up – That I’d never heard of him or know of him, when I claimed to be an Artiste /Musician. Very Telling – isn’t it. More so, when it comes to the Maker of Heaven and Earth :: The Giver of Life to All kinds Great or Small, even wise and wonderful too! 


(we) may not have all that I want, but I (we) sure do as the sun shines, have all that I (we) need, to function and be amazing powerful spirits – that ultimately define the Circle Of Love* – completely. Embrace this Love*. 

“Sometimes God slows us down to speed us up”.

“Unto life, love has found me. Places I buried inside. I let hide and die. Died and died all over again ..’ Why? – Cuz I let them in – No more!”


THE APPROVAL OF GOD IS SOLID – NOT MEN! MEN ARE FICKLE LIKE THE WIND …’ MEN THAT CAN BE BOUGHT, SOLD OR DISPOSED – OFF – LIKE THE WIND. THATS WHAT MEN ARE ..’ LOVE – THATS WHAT GOD IS. SOLID! I stopped searching for it because its an endless rabbit hole. How deep does it go? (the approval of men)

I pray for a renewed Spirit, Mind, Body & Soul ..’ :


Without the HOLY SPIRIT, I be lost, lost, lost, lost ..’

Question is – Do I Always Listen …
Question is – Do You Always Listen 
Questions is – Why don’t you Always listen – 


To the HOLY SPIRIT ..’

Anthony Everest Music Diaries with ‘Change’ – Death :: By Anthony Everest

Loosing a family member – is not an easy ordeal! So sad. lost my beautiful, 22yr old Cousin and 70 year old Aunty within a space of 3 months.


My aunt passed on New Year’s day this year! She was very kind and a classy lady! A lot of life to remember and I remember her, very well. She never raised her voice at me – once. I have learned (or should I say I am learning) to pay vivid attention – when God is speaking to me and revealing things to me.

MercyfulGrace Live

He does this amazingly – spiritually – in many forms. I’ll stop right there. For those are the things for me to know and act on! :: Feeling determined. Death at times is spiritual not just physical. At times, a form of both – is unforgiving.

Jesus has not changed in my opinion. His precedences of love, have remained tried, tested and stood. I’m the only one changing from day to day! Amen :: This is why I love Him :: Change is good. If you are not changing, you are not growing. If you are not not growing, you are dying; and soon, you’d be dead from dying.

Àrèmúorin - Anthony Everest

To A New Year – To a New Change :: To A New You! :: It’s a New Day & A New Season! For the first time – I saw a BULLY WHO TORMENTED MY YOUTH – (VIA FACEBOOK). NOT MUCH BETTER LOOKING, TO SAY THE LEAST :::AND I WONDER why ALL THOSE YEARS, WHY – I even let them in …’ #JEALOUSY IS THE ROOT OF HATERD. Cha! The Oppressor is a liar. And while at it I FORGIVE YOU !!!

MercyfulGrace Live

Don’t be jealous of the wicked, or their vices, cuz they shall disappear like the rain, melts, from a cloud passing by :: Amen :: I belong to GOD! NO MATTER HOW YOU DRESS THIS – GOD IS ON MY  CASE FOR SURE :: I FEEL LIKE JONAH / MOSES / SAUL & ETC. God is saying – Go All The Way – I’m saying, I wanna go half the way Lol :: Not funny really – I’m just saying it as it is ::

MercyfulGrace Live

And Yo; to some of the crooked :: spiritual institutions like churches and mosques. Don’t blame your followers when they go into the world for help – when you don’t look after their interest’s first, save your greedy, wealthy pockets! :: HAPPY NY !!!
I read this back, retrospectively, In the FINAL HOURS OF 2014, RECALLING, I lost two more dear friends in a space of 3 months. This, even, grieves me more, for I never had the chance to say good bye, or right petty grudges. Who knew that was our final good bye’s. It kills one inside, to be unable to go back in time to change the past. However, change is always for the best. Change must come, and we must learn as we embrace change, to be wiser, stronger and better next time.

RIP Chris Burke & Bharti Chopra.

Why some people like to sabotage other peoples work to feel vindicated, I have no idea! :: It’s just dire and mare mediocrity, with a false sense of security. Why don’t you get with the real programme.

Channel your vitality and vigour into some thing, productively positive, towards – your own original; legacy! Authenticity is Key!
