The problem with rapping, rocking or partying for Jesus

 Jesus did not call us to try to look "cool" and rap/rock/party etc... about the kingdom of God, to try and make His house look appealing, showy or post-modern from the outside. Jesus does not call us to take the limelight. Rather Jesus calls us to the HOLY life. (Which apparently isn't very cool these days)  He calls us to make disciples who will ALSO be serious about Him, NOT about music, rap, sport, hobby or our clothing or anything else in this WORLD that we THINK we can use to make God's porch more appealing. There is no such thing. There is only one way and it is the LORD'S way or the highway. Proclaim Jesus Christ from your OWN MOUTH in a serious way and people will listen. Take repentance seriously, take your own relationship with Jesus very seriously and others will see your testimony as genuine and true!  But if you mix your so-called "testimony" with cheap gimmicks and tricks, then before you know it, you'll be working for Satan quite effectively, yet believing you're still a good Christian.

Amen it's very hard for me to stop music that is not Christian rap as I can't play any instrument and sing hymns but the Lord's will is more important than the desire of the flesh. You seem to be a genuine Christian but I Also struggle with sabbath and unclean food. The early disciples and Paul celebrated the sabbath and were even martyred by the roman Empire for not resting on the Day of the Sun they were considered cursed by the roman catholic leaders if they celebrate from the sunset friday to the sunset of saturday. Some languages kept the meaning like sabado in spanish. Paul preached during the sabbath and even the non jews invited him to teach them on that Day and it was after the resurrection of Jesus.
Acts 18:4
4 And he (Paul) reasoned in the synagogue every sabbath, and persuaded the Jews and the Greeks (non Jews).

I don't think WE must keep All the old Covenant and the traditions of Jews or keeping for example animals sacrifices cause Jesus is the lamb that was slained for our sins but the commandment of sabbath and The feasts of Yaweh are for All the belivers in christ because why would Christ invite All the nations to respect the sabbath and The 7 feasts during the Millennium and not now? Also I don't think Peter, Paul ate pork, the vision Peter had about unclean animals was to represent non jews who are not unclean for God but humans like them. May the holy spirit help us. Blessings

Following Jesus isn't about becoming Jewish or making others feel guilty for not keeping Jewish laws. Remember the Apostle Paul rebuked Peter for this openly. Man is not justified by works of the law but by faith in Jesus Christ. You have to get to know Jesus for real obey His voice.
