M.I.A. saw vision of Christ

M.I.A. & Candace talk Jesus. 

Blog King, Mass Appeal

LONDON — “Paper Planes” rapper M.I.A. (né Mathangi “Maya” Arulpragasam) had a bunch of fans until she accepted Jesus Christ as her lord and savior. Now they want nothin’ to do with her bible-reading ass. They prefer she worship Satan. “The fact that the biggest backlash in my career and life I’m facing after saying ‘Jesus is real’ is such a revelation to me,” M.I.A. tweeted. “People who control these apps rather me be a bad girl, than a good one.” The 47-year-old lyricist ruffled feathers when she told conservative swirler Candace Owens she became a “Born Again Christian” after experiencing a supernatural encounter. That’s when M.I.A. descried a “vision of Jesus Christ” that “turned her world upside down.” She’s been the target of vitriol ever since. “Basically, all of my fans might turn against me because they are all progressives who hate people that believe in Jesus Christ in this country,” she told Apple Music’s Zane Lowe in a separate interview. “Even if it costs me my career, I won’t lie. I will tell the truth, and I will tell you what’s on my mind and my heart. If I’m coming back now saying ‘Jesus is real,’ there’s a point.”

Born in England and raised via Hindu, M.I.A. grew up thinking Jesus was a “silly story.” But, thanks to her newfound faith, that’s no longer the case. “I think the only clear thing I can say is that even when I had no belief in Jesus Christ and Christianity, and even when I was 100 percent comfortable in Hinduism, it was a Christian God that turned up to save me,” she recounted.

“And I think there is truth in that.”

Still no word on if she descried a black Jesus or a white one.

  1. Praise God He can save anyone 🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾 all glory I am praying for MIA and her family.

  2. I had a vision of Jesus also about a month or 2 ago it’s weird how this is happening , maybe he’s close to coming back?

  3. Despite the older songs with a sort of bad girl image, I always liked her and even if her music portrayed that, I had the feeling deep down she was a good person and very talented, so I was a fan. I am not really that surprised because I felt so strongly something like this might happen for her. Because I felt like that about her, I tend to think this might be very sincere. It doesn’t mean she won’t make mistakes on the journey, the path up the hill zigzags. It does say a lot she is saying this given her bad girl image. I don’t think it’s for popularity because it’s likely to cost her more of her old fans.

  4. I hope it’s pure and true. Lots of people claim to be Christian these days…

  5. As a follower of Christ, I can say that we have not any reason to believe that this is not true. The God of all miracles is at work in these ever-changing times.

  6. I love this for her so much!!!!! A new sister in Christ!🙌🏾☺️♥️♥️
    AND with such a big platform, she has the potential to bring millions of people to Jesus! Awesome!

  7. Will look forward to hearing her new music in the future! Hopefully it’s the same style with Christian based lyrics

  8. And when I turned I saw seven golden lampstands, 13 and among the lampstands was someone like a son of man,[a] dressed in a robe reaching down to his feet and with a golden sash around his chest. 14 The hair on his head was white like wool, as white as snow, and his eyes were like blazing fire. 15 His feet were like bronze glowing in a furnace, and his voice was like the sound of rushing waters. 16 In his right hand he held seven stars, and coming out of his mouth was a sharp, double-edged sword. His face was like the sun shining in all its brilliance.

  9. When ur music stops selling I guess u go to Christian market. 😁😄😁😅

  10. Let her begin her walk with Him. We all fall short of the glory of God. Let the angels in heaven rejoice that a sinner and child of God has repented and accepted Christ as their Lord.

  11. ” I’m not ashamed of the gospel of the Lord Jesus for it is the power of God unto salvation/eternal life /Heaven. Bible.Jesus said, “I tell you the truth no one will see the kingdom of God unless he is born again. I am the way the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father except through me.” For God so loved the world that He give His only Son that whoever believes in Him will not perish but will have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world but to save the World through Him. For all have sinned and come short of the Glory of God. For the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord, and All who call upon the name of the Lord will be saved. ” If you want to be sure of Heaven and avoid the other place below say the following prayer sincerely from your heart.” Lord Jesus I repent and am sorry for my sins forgive me. I forgive all who have offended me. Come into my heart and save me. I accept you as my Lord and Saviour. Fill me with your Holy Spirit and baptise me with your Holy Spirit. Fulfill your plan and purpose in my life. “I recommend you read John’s Gospel especially chapter 3.Gbu.John 3v3v22,John 14v6.

  12. @Kevin Murdoch: Whenever a celebrity expresses faith in God, you can always count on Christians to start judging them.

  13. Praise God! Maya has so much to learn, though… Christianity is far more elegant, freeing and accessible than other paths, by design of God, but there are deep waters to swim out into, spiritually, that will make all other paths seem superficial and nonsensical, for those who want them… Most people have no idea that the longest-lived and most opulent and sophisticated empire on earth was a Christian one: the 1200 year old Byzantine Empire… People have no idea the depth that runs through Christianity, from the charismatics in America to the Greek Orthodox, to Ethiopian Orthodox (Bob Marley converted to)… The archeology, the Biblical scholarship, the history and real science…will make sense of the world we live in and empower in a way that could only come from a loving God, one willing to suffer and die for us, one able to conquer death with death and come out victorious, all within the free will laws… Halleujah! Jesus is Lord!!!

  14. @Justin Torres: Watch the fruit, as in the content that will be put out by her and her team. I gave Kanye the benefit of the doubt until his content proved otherwise. This is a time for discernment like never before, because the spirit of deception is real. I pray for her, and that she will be used by the Holy Spirit. There is none of us that becomes true born again believers that will not have to let go of the things in this world. As the Bible says we must all count the cost of what this life cost, if any of us compromise the faith in Christ Jesus, please repent and keep repenting until the Holy Spirit gives you the strength to leave your sinful lifestyle behind. When you are born again the old life is dead…….. No if ands or buts about it.

  15. @Don Mcc: Yes! We Christians could be to quick to judge people that just became followers of Christ!
    We have to understand that accepting Christ is a journey not an overnight change!
    God bless her and her Journey in Jesus Name!🙏🏽💙💯

  16. Loved this interview. I thought it was a great conversation. Both ladies are very intelligent and articulated their points well. I always liked MIA but I love her now!

  17. Candace has sold out black people, poorer people! MIA we are very disappointed that you have put Candace on your platform. I was just defending you in a debate, and now you have Candace Owens. Wow. Disappointing.

  18. God, through Jesus is both just and The Justifier!!! He wouldn’t/ couldn’t be just if He didn’t offer mercy and save by Grace because He promised to remember our sins no more. So, yes He is an authority figure but only by freely offering us His mercy and forgiveness via the free gift of Grace (Jesus). Sounds too good to be true to the human mind but His ways are higher than our ways!!!!! Lets pray for this young women to continue to mature in her understanding.

  19. I was probably m.I.a biggest fan since galang, then everyone found out about her after paper planes. I was very upset at what the country did to destroy her life. And hide her voice, it really sucks because I saw how she pretty much was shut out of the entire media industry and NO ONE STOOD UP FOR HER but yet SHE WAS STANDING UP FOR EVERYONE ELSE

  20. Wow I can’t believe MIA went on this trash ass show 😂

  21. Massive MIA fan here from back in the day. So very happy for her!!

  22. She’s so lucky to have experienced this amazing vision. I’m so happy she’s found Christ. I pray that she continues to seek the Lord and bless her.

  23. Jesus is the most hated. Christians is the most persecuted group in the world. Whenever I mention Jesus, I get attacked.

  24. This brought tears to my eyes to hear of her salvation, praise God, and Lord bless you, MIA!!! ❤❤❤ Jesus saves and God is love!

  25. The FACT that the world is so tolerant of Islam, Buddhist, etc, but HATES Jesus shows that He IS real, as M.I.A said! They welcome any of these false religions because they WANT people to go to hell.

  26. If Jesus is being cancelled then he’s a threat to the establishment. As he was back in the day.

  27. Being a Christian is carrying your own Cross and a servant can’t be greater than the master Jesus . So glad to my new sister in Christ am a proud Christian and don’t regret Jesus Christ forever and ever❤

  28. Hopefully she will do awesome work for the Christians People will buy your record honey they like your music if you sing a good message there are lot of fans Country rap rock everything They would love to hear your music about Jesus Bless you!

  29. The fact that M.I.A gave her life to Christ gives me hope that God can also touch and bring to salvation other mainstream celebrities as well.

  30. I love M.I.A. till this day! Her new album “MATA” is great…has some influences of her faith on there. She’s also made songs like “Babylon” and most recently “Gods Garden” that show she’s trying to incorporate her new found faith in her music. Let’s continue to pray and support her!

  31. Believers will suffer the most on earth,but will revel in God’s glory in heaven.
