My Testimony – #In14ways #MercyfulGrace


Why I thought I didn’t have wisdom:

An aunt made me feel stupid and I was always treated that way for a while. She told me one day out of annoyance while she was nursing her first child; to ask God for wisdom.
Why I thought I did not have a good singing voice:

I was always treated as different and an outsider growing up at home & within my extended family.

Never felt accepted. I was always compared with my cousins as the status quo and told I wasn’t good enough.

Music moved me unlike any thing and gave me, clarity, hope, rest, peace, a santuary and an identity.

I loved listening to Amy Grant & Maranatha as a child. Later Helen Baylor & Whitney Houston.
Then Pavarotti and Andrea Bocelli when I came to England.

Helen Baylor was a defining moment when my cousin gave me her tape – Highly Recommended.

I was transfixed. I told God I want to sing like that when I grow up. It was done and sealed. I also told him I will edify him with my voice. Then I forgot and it nearly went completely wrong for me.
I was 19 then.

My school mother gave me Gospel Songs of Any Grant & Maranatha to learn.

They grew on me. I wanted to sing like these kids on the recordings and wished I was in their company away from my reality. So I sang more.

When I heard the soprano lines; I was facsinated by their wall of sounds.

How I prayed about this and exactly:

So, I asked God to give me a very beautiful voice and make my range wider and higher than all the soprano singers in my youth choir, or that I’ve heard and all the boys singing tennor. And I, got it.
I was removed from tennor to sing soprano in my church youth choir.
I always associated my voice / music as a gift from God and a prayer. It’s spiritual and sacred for me.

How that was answered?

When I started singing very high and making songs up all the time. Also, given Soprano lines to sing and got signed up at 21.

My music is powerful. It heals. I heard testimonies from mothers who say their sons listen to my album ‘Follow Your Dreams’ – songs I wrote and recorded; every night before bed. Especially an autistic boy.

My music topped Jazz charts and got awards internationally with high praises from colleagues and rave reviews.

It got me a lot of frenemies, saboteurs and haters too. It came with the package. It was hard to process at first. Now I’m good.
Nobody hates on a looser. They only do when you are slaying.

How did God give you wisdom:

I started having a sixth sense, revelations, gift of dreams and became very concious; very young.
Then God revealed himself to me and spoke to me about my destiny and purpose to edify him and how he would use me later on as an adult.

Especially as a great writer – the Award winning (MercyfulGrace Blog). Not so much as a great singer; cuz I broke my oath. He did still promise me a very good singing career. I then remembered my oath to him. Our oath. The pact we made.

Every time the world was offered to me; He would tell me to say no.

The first time I disobeyed; I tore my larynx and lost my beautiful voice for almost a decade and could not sing. Then lost my record deal(s).

I went down a depression spiral and became narcoleptic. God is real. Very, very real.

Do I now sing more?

Yes – Everyday. Holistically, professionally and creatively #AnthonyEverestMusic
I am singing at the Hilton this weekend and the Marriott next month.
Thanks

The Stench of Church Hypocrisy

The same bible told them:

Matthew 7:3-4 New International Version (NIV)
3 “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? 4 How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye?

God First

The church has lost its moral high ground in all honesty. The stench of its hypocrisy from slavery to anarchy and self righteousness lingers like a bad drawn out joke that never lands. It’s tragic!

I liken their sanctimonious religious occults to a man who rapes a girl and blames it on her; because she wore a mini skirt. Really. That insidious.
Now. I don’t need the Pope to find God. That’s what the Holy Spirit is there for.

https://AnthonyEverest.com

I can’t wait for judgment day. We have had enough already.
Don’t come for me if I don’t come for you. And – Who are you to judge? People who live in glass houses should not be throwing stones.
Self righteous people sound like a walking contradiction to me who can’t practise what they preach.

Where is the love? Isn’t God Love? Afterall – Nobody owns God !!!!!!
I can’t wait to see the moon reflect the sun on this one.
Thank you Yeshua for the cross. Your love is truly humbling and enabling. Amen. There’s no one like you …

Dear Sunday: We all have pain – #In14ways #MercyfulGrace #AnthonyEverest

Anthony Everest – selfie

A friend I chose to leave nameless refused to take my repeated calls cuz I couldn’t make his last two parties. I sent the friend this letter after I asked myself this question.

Happy Sunday. Many of your friends will invite you to a party but how many will invite you to spend time with #God? #Interesting ..’ – #In14ways

Hello.

Hope you are well. Sorry missed your event again. I planned to attend and looked forward but circumstances out of my control availed.

Life can be very fickle, lonely and isolating. Many project make believe(s) through social media whilst a dark contrast mask their truths.

https://AnthonyEverest.com

If you aren’t talking to me bcuz I could not come to your event that’s sad. While I’ve been calling you multiple times to check If you are ok; you never did the same.

I couldn’t come bcuz I have a lot of sh*t going on in my life. I have death threats and sorts. In and out of hospital on narcolepsy/epilepsy. My body is fatigued as hell and has a mind of it’s own. No one cares.

If that’s true friendship. Oh well – it’s subpar.

In spite – I still tried to reach out to you on the day; and before, and have done since. Love is not what you say, love is what you do.

We all have pain.

https://AnthonyEverest.com

Thoughts:

We must live and raise vibrations regardless and live a full life. Love is very much alive. #SelfLove

From the bottom of my heart; I want to say thanks to the curators and protagonists of beautiful friendships.

I found strength to believe in a sparse loving world glittered with hopelessness and wickedness that there is still hope for great minds alike.

Anthony

#Thoughts are #not #facts? – #In14ways MeryfulGrace

The wisdom of God is not the philosophy of men ..’

– Anthony Everest Music

https://AnthonyEverest.com

I am not God but I reflect his light. Is that your thought, or my fact?

You probably don’t know I was made in his image just like you ..’

But then again, you probably don’t know that, too.

Maybe, it’s just another thought of mine.

My Aretha Franklin Tribute

Anthony Everest – https://AnthonyEverest.com

Photo by Decarlo

So my good friend Jaylee invited me to bless the mic when we ran into each other the night before; in Knightsbridge.

Then, this happened. Thank you my darling. You are a good friend with a good heart ..’

Thank you Troy Bar and the House Band for this #ArethaFranklin #tribute. Great song & great musicians. Considering this was unplanned: Thank you to Princess for capturing the video too. #MuchLove ..’ – #In14ways

I’ve read Aretha’s Biography years ago in a book I still have. So insightful. Also have scores of music arrangements of Aretha’s work.

Grew up on her fondly and loved her sense of humour and sassy wit. Definitely an impressionable masterclass act in the veins of Picasso and Leonardo Di Vinci.

She will always be adored and admired. Thank you for inspiring us all soulfully. Time has come. Goodnight. Sweet dreams ..’ 😍😍😍

My Soul Mate

I’ve met him. He scared the shit out of me. In fact, it was dejavu.

Not once, but twice. I regret running, cuz I know he was the one.

Maybe. We will meet again. We still seldomly email. Boy.

I think it made me question my entire programmed existence cuz it questioned every fibre of my lived existence every time we met.

And you know what they say – ‘Vibes don’t lie’ ..’ – #In14ways
