Kirk Franklin.....Anyone?

Post by Missyb007 on Fri Oct 30, 2009 6:07 pm

Has anyone heard of Kirk Franklin?
I was just on YT.. searching for the This is it single.. and I came across Kirk Franlin's song called: " Declaration (This is it)
Anyway... it seems to me there's a link between him and Michael Jackson..
Take a look at the lyrics of the song:

"Declaration (This Is It)"

[Introduction]
Check it out, ya'll
(There've been times in my life)
I'm tired and I wanna give up
(I've been wondering why)
Why is the world gettin' so crazy?
(Still, somehow I believe
)
I've come too far to die now
(I always survive)

If you're a survivor, get up!
Let's get it!

[Verse 1]
Gonna cry now, go ahead and get it out of my system
Know I'm hurt now, but soon I gotta get back to livin'
Can't be here next year, givin' you these same tears
Hope you enjoyed it, 'cause it's the last time you'll take a piece of me

It start right now, I don't know how I'm gonna get thru it
I'm broke right now, I pray somehow 'cause I can't do it
Can't keep livin' like this, there's gotta be more than this
Jesus, I'm ready, I'm ready for what you have for me

[Chorus]
(Are you gonna wait for a sign?)
Are you ready for your miracle
God's people it's time to (stand up and fight)
Let's get it, let's get it
This is it!!
You can't mess with my mind anymore
This is it!
I'm smarter, see I've been here before
This is it!
It's a new day, I'm not afraid anymore
This is it!
Yes, I believe, if you believe, help me say
This is it!

I'm a child of the King baby, look at somebody and tell 'em
This is it!

[Verse 2]
I look back now, I look at how you tried to break me
To take my life, my peace of mind and drive me crazy
My self esteem, my dreams, my destiny
So, God allowed it, because He knew He had big plans for me
(Hallelujah!)

It's your grace, I know today it's how I made it (Thank You, Jesus)
When I thought that it was over (Lord, have mercy)

[Chorus]

Everybody that's been holdin' you down, look at 'em and tell 'em
This is it!
I feel my help coming on right now, ya'll

[Break]
You think that maybe it's over (You're life ain't over)
Not unless you want it to be


(Are you gonna wait for a sign?) your miracle
(stand up and fight)

[Rap]
This is it ya'll, this is it ya'll
You've been waitin' and debating , here it is, ya'll
All your stuff from your past, shake it off ya'll
Though they said you wouldn't last, who you is ya'll?
Want your dreams back? Let's get it!
Your peace of mind back? Let's get it!
Want your family back? Let's get it!
Are you ready? Let's get it! (This is it!)
I speak against everything that comes to destroy the purpose in your life
This is it!
Worrying about your finances, your future, when you can't even sleep at night
This is it!
I speak against depression and fear, every attack from the enemy
This is it!
This is your day, the Lord made it baby! God has set you free!
This is it!

You can't mess with my mind anymore
This is it!
I'm smarter, see I've been here before
This is it!
It's a new day, I'm not afraid anymore
This is it!
I wanna hear ya'll sing this with your boy!
Every body say
This is it!

You can't mess with my mind anymore
This is it!
I'm smarter, see I've been here before
This is it!
It's a new day, I'm not afraid anymore
This is it!
Yes, I believe, if you believe, help me say
This is it!

Also check out this website.. the lyrics.. sometimes it looks like they are pointing at the man MJ Wink

http://www.elyrics.net/song/k/kirk-franklin-lyrics.html

I'm NOT sure if this could be any link at all.. I just find it odd.. that someone says these kind of things... does anyone know why he would sing this type of song
(ofcourse I know this is a gospel song..still.. something has caught my attention:) )
Maybe I'm just going crazy trying to search to deep
Just let me know OK?

LOVE

I havent heard kirk on a while-I used to listen to him alot when I was young(GP years) but honestly just the word "This is It" in any song makes us look -especially when it is a new or recent song! Maybe he was thinkin of MJ when he wrote it? Kirk has sang with many non Gospel recording artists.

@wannabe-He WAS sex addicted-he was delivered...all ppl have had probs.

Yes, I opened a thread on TII song a couple of days ago and I'll try to look for it.

I was browsing through different artists then I found that Kenny Loggins single is out which is entitled This Is It.

Then somebody posted the lyrics of Kenny Loggins song.

No, Kirk hasn't made anything new recently. Yes, he came out a few years back. I don't know what the connection could be between his song Declaration when he samples Kenny Loggins TII. Kirk is known for sampling secular music for his gospel songs. Most traditional Christians don't care for his music because they think he is a stone throws way from being in the world. He appeals to the younger Christian population. @wannabe you are absolutely right when you say all ppl have problems.
Also, you are right about him confessing publicly that he was was addicted to sex (pornography). He did repent and I am sure God forgave him. Alot of well known leaders in the Christian community have fallen at one point in time. It's human nature as far as I am concerned. For example, Paula White of the church in FL known as Without Walls (I believe) announced to her congregation last year that she was divorcing her second husband Randy. She didn't give them any explanation. It was rumored that she was involved with another pastor from San Antonio, TX. She is still preaching and has a televised show that comes on every morning on TBN. All, I can say is nobody's perfect in this world. Keep the Faith!

Hello, everyone!
I've not posted here for some time.....

I just want to say that I have no idea who Kirk Franklin is, BUT...I've had the following on my "profile" on Twitter for a few months:

"FOR ONCE IN YOUR LIFE HERE'S YOUR MIRACLE...
STAND UP AND FIGHT...
THIS IS IT...!



(I completely understand the connection....)

.... Just wish I could "enlighten" others in a concise way.....
:~ The BOND will NEVER BE BROKEN ~:

I wish that there was a "guest list" available or at the least more paparazzi photos.

I am still quite intrigued by the "celebrities" who chose to attend in comparison to those who chose to NOT attend. In much the same way that we all have examined the attendees and no-shows at the Memorial & Burial, I would absolutely love to do the same for the Premier.

Oh well...
