Why do people choose to do bad things? Is there really an evil entity constantly trying to get us to do wrong? And if so, what is the entity that is trying to convince us to do what’s right? So many great questions, and we are ready to talk about them. Like a rose that has sprung up from the concrete, rap artist DIMI D has overcome many odds in his own life and has fought his way through the trials and temptations that have tried to take him out. Sometimes things happen in our lives that are out of our control, and the only thing we can do is try our best to move past them. Sadly, in many cases, the hardships that people face in this life have a hardening effect on the way they view the world and those living in it. We often times spiral in a downward direction due to the hardships in our life because hardships often leave a negative impact on the way we think and the way we feel. DIMI D has encountered many experiences throughout his life that could have killed him in the blink of an eye. He understands the mindset of living life on a path to self destruction. The pain in DIMI D’s life caused him to become a rebel who wanted nothing more to live life on his own terms without any rules or regulations from those in a position of higher authority. Sadly, being a rebel has a way of disconnecting us from both God and the people God has sent to be helpful to us in our lives.
DIMI D is a name we have seen in headlines a lot in the past year. His gift in music and passion for God continues to make room for him in the music world. And just like DIMI D, we all have questions pertaining to our existence. What is life? Why I am I here? Is there life after death? Why do bad things happen to good people? Does God really exist? These are some of the most prominent questions being talked about in our world today, and if we’re not careful, we might find ourselves listening to the wrong people telling us the wrong answers. The truth is, people all over the world are in great distress and they are looking for answers that can help ease their troubled minds.
The Project “Rebel Turned Angel” is based on the true story of how DIMI D went from being a very lost and troubled youth to becoming a much more productive individual whose mind and heart began to heal as he shifted his focus to follow God instead of the ways of this world. The record is filled with relatable stories and life lessons that are geared towards helping others understand that they are not alone. DIMI D wanted to unveil his personal hardships in lyrical format so that someone might be able to hear his story and find hope for their own life situations.
“Rebel Turned Angel” has a Boom Bap east coast style that is smothered with a West Coast vibe. As you listen to the project through your headphones, you will quickly see that everything DIMI D had to go through was a stepping stone to increase his faith and to draw him closer to the God who called him out of darkness into His marvelous Light. DIMI D credits every good thing in his life to the God who bled and died for his sins and for ours. Just like everyone else, the rapper had choices he had to make along his journey. It was up to him to decide whether or not he was going to allow the bad things that happened dictate the direction he was going to travel throughout the rest of his life. Unfortunately, DIMI D chose the wrong path for many years and ended up paying a hard price for his decisions. However, when he finally came to himself and realized that he needed to give his life and all the issues in it over to God, he was finally able to begin picking up the pieces and allowing God to heal the pain he endured as a young boy growing up on the streets of California.
What is life? “Life is a God given gift that each of us have been blessed to experience.” Why are we here? “We are here to learn the truth, and by learning that truth we can be set free and forgiven of our wrong doings. Then, we can allow God to use our lives so that He can reach others with the same truth that has the power to save them as forgive their wrong doings as well.” Is there life after death? “Yes! Absolutely. There is life after death, and God refers to it as eternity, a life that is without end. However, the issue is that there are only two destinations we can go to after we die. We can either put our faith and trust in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ which gives us the right to be forgiven of all of our sins, or we can choose to forfeit our opportunity to be saved and spend eternity in the Lake of Fire with the Devil and his angels. It is completely up to us and we have the power to make our and utterly our choice to choose which end we want to inherit.” Why do bad things happen to good people? “Simple. We live in a broken world that is full of sin and people that are disobedient to God’s will. Since sin is a destructive demonic nature, there isn’t really a way to find eternal hope, peace, or protection outside of the covering of God Almighty.” Why do people choose to do bad things? “Well, the reason people choose to do bad things is because sin lives in the members of their body. This causes people to lean towards disobedience to God, which ultimately causes consequences that can cause us to experience extreme hardships and various types of physical and emotional pain. This is why God wants us to trust and obey Him, so that we can avoid many hardships and learn to thrive in both this life and throughout eternity.” Is there really an evil entity that is constantly trying to get us to do wrong? “Yes, the Bible calls that entity Satan. God says that Satan roams around like a roaring Lion seeking whom he may devour. Satan cannot devour us unless we choose to let him. The problem is people are constantly making decisions, that by default, give Satan legal grounds to harass them and wreak havoc in their lives.” What is the entity that is trying to convince us to do what’s right? “God the Father, Jesus Christ the Son, and the Holy Spirit of the living God. The Holy Trinity. These 3 persons who exist as the Godhead that make up the fulness of who God actually is. When we feel the nudge or we feel the thoughts to do what is right, that’s God’s voice speaking to us. The more we choose to trust and obey God’s word, the more His favor and grace will shine in and through our lives for the whole world to see. This heavenly light inside of us will produce good deeds that are done on the outside through out behaviors and choices, which then cause people to see those good deeds and give thanks to the one true God for His goodness and mercy. Amen!”
