About Hank Jones
GUILTY OF THE GOSPEL This is the aim and desire that describes the teaching and music ministry that Hank Jones has been entrusted with.(1Timothy 6:20, guard what has been entrusted to your care. Turn away from godless chatter and the opposing ideas of what is falsely called knowledge) Through the guidance of the Holy Spirit, Hank Jones uses the vehicle of rap music in communicating the message of repentance and hope in Jesus to a generation desperately in need of the word. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is the FOCUS of his message as he BOLDLY proclaims it with no COMPROMISE and no SHAME like a faithful SERVANT. (Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ,for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.) As an artist Hank Jones reveals his passion and zeal in every word and song set to music allowing the Holy Spirit to use him as an open vessel to become a light reflecting CHRIST'S love to a dark and lost world. As a Man of God, Hank Jones stands for righteousness and holiness even when the voices of criticism and discouragement are constantly upon him. As a leader Hank Jones has devoted himself to being a SERVANT of Jesus Christ, serving the Kingdom of God through spiritual gifts and obedience to His will. The first project MIC CHECK is geared to display the MIC as a tool that must be used the right way to influence, encourage and proclaim life speaking words and not death speaking words.(Proverbs 18:21, Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.) This project is GOING AGAINST THE GRAIN of what this world has become accustom to hearing and doing that some might go as far as to call it controversial due to the nature of the subject matter and content. Each song is a sermon positioned inside of the vessel of rap allowing for the Word of God to be translated through a language that crosses ethical and cultural lines reaching a missing generation in size.This album is the pulpit that Hank Jones stands in front of to witness the Death, Burial and Resurrection of Jesus Christ to a harvest of souls ready to be changed. Mic Check defines the purpose of music and how it is to be used to bring Glory to God and captivate people to worship Him in all that they do. A call for the church to Take the Gospel to the streets to expand the kingdom and influence the hope of the lost in our lifestyle.(Matthew 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.) I Cor. 9:19-23 gives further insight into the methodology and approach that is implemented in his ministry. Rather through music or teaching Hank Jones brings a sense of freshness to the listener that is both comforting and challenging at the same time.
