American rapper, singer, record producer and entrepreneur, Kanye West in his recent interview with Forbes Magazine shared his experience with Coronavirus after he reportedly tested positive to the virus in February.
“Chills, shaking in the bed, taking hot showers, looking at videos telling me what I’m supposed to do to get over it.”
The Rapper who announced his decision to contest for the Presidential US election shared his opinion on the COVID-19 vaccine scientists are working on, saying it was a mark of the beast.
“It’s so many of our children that are being vaccinated and paralyzed,” he claimed. “So when they say the way we’re going to fix COVID with a vaccine, I’m extremely cautious. That’s the mark of the beast. They want to put chips inside of us, they want to do all kinds of things, to make it where we can’t cross the gates of heaven.”
In the Christian eschatology, the mark of the beast is the mark put on the forehead of those who worship the beast, the symbol of opposition to God noted in Revelation 13:16:
“He required everyone–small and great, rich and poor, free and slave–to be given a mark on the right hand or on the forehead.” [NLT]
Kanye West believes that people should pray for coronavirus to be cured. “We pray. We pray for the freedom. It’s all about God. We need to stop doing things that make God mad,” he said.
Last week, West released a new song, “Wash Us In the Blood” along with an accompanying video which included imagery from the recent anti-racism protests. The new track, the first released from his forthcoming 10th album “God’s Country,” features lyrics with heavily biblical overtones, in line with his musical turn to Christianity in recent years.
However, just yesterday, the American vaccine development company Novavax was awarded $1.6billion in federal funding to develop a COVID-19 vaccine, with the aim of delivering 100million doses by next January.
The funds will reportedly also cover a human testing trial which could start as early as October.Download TopNaija App free | Join Us On Telegram | Promote Your Music
