robotsHey I was born less than human
I know it sounds crazy
But I was really born a robot as a baby
No real life in me, I just played my role
No self-control, I just did what I was told …
Sold under bondage and I couldn’t take control
So I was just chilling in my robot clothes
With my robot friends, and my robot flows
Living robot ways, cause that’s all I know
Till I heard I could be freed from my robot soul, I’m like

Why you always trying to control me?
You are not my boss that’s the old me
Obviously, you don’t know my style
‘Cause I’m not a, I’m not a robot now
I’m not a, I’m not a, I’m not a Robot

triplee_hr02robot2-618x618Those are the words of Trip Lee in “Robot” in his album “The Good Life”. Reading through those words, how true they are. You might probably question the cause for the degraded level of human character, why human existence seems like a continuous cycle, why people act far less than human, why it is just hard to naturally do the right things, why evil is inherent in the human mind? You sure don’t need to teach a child to do wrong, it’s inherent in them, because we were all born a robot.

Romans 5:12 (AMP)Therefore, as sin came into the world through one man (Adam), and death as the result of sin, so death spread to all men, [no one being able to stop it or to escape its power] because all men sinned.

1 Corinthians 15:22 (CEV) Adam brought death to all of us… (NKJV)For as in Adam all die…

Man was born a robot; void of the breath of the Almighty that gives him life (Job 33:4), just an empty crafted structure or container known as “the human body”, disconnected from his source; the Spirit of God. What good is a dead body? It’s as good as coffin and a 6 feet pit. Trip Lee continues

The crazy thing is I ain’t know I was robot
I thought I was unique, I thought I was so hot
But I was just like them other drones, I was so locked
Brainwashed, I was listening to lies
The freedom that I thought I had was really a mirage
I made my own choices, but it was a disguise
The only thing I really did was pick a different lie
So I was still a drone, nothing but a clone

Is it not funny how man thinks he is something outside his source, has your dog ever strayed from home? If he’s able to make it back home before being a victim of the wheels of a vehicle or the harsh environmental condition, then he must be very lucky. Have you ever imagined how better bred and fed the king of your streets’ dogs will be if owned by the Prime Minister, that is how much your best is if compared with what you can be if with your source; God.

But I been remade, my heart is no longer stone
Now I’ve been remade, I’m no longer hollow
A real man came, changed everything that I know
He gave me truth, that’s a hard pill to swallow
He gave me new commands, and he freed me up to follow

Ever wondered why the whole “born again” thing? The answer is staring you in the face, it is simply the decision that changes your state, robot to human, dead to living.

Ezekiel 36:26 I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.

1 Corinthians 15:22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive.


Romans 5:17 For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.)

Here is the good news; it’s super easy to become an ex-robot. Tell me, what did you do to become a robot? You shared the first man’s nature (Adam), the very same way; you share the second man’s (Jesus) nature. 1 Cor 15:47 The first man was of the earth, made of dust; the second Man is the Lord from heaven. The way you became a robot without your actions or inactions, the same you become born again; an ex-robot; but to all who did accept him and believe in him he gave the right to become children of God John 1:12. All that is required is accept him and believe him. Don’t try to get rid of the robot’s costume or your messes, that is His job.  

So, let all EX-ROBOTS join Trip Lee finish this up;

Hey world, you know I see your game
And I don’t need your lies, I ain’t worried bout a thing
Hey, devil, I know you want me chained
But you have been defeated, and your power has been drained
Hey flesh, I know you bear my name
I know you love the lies, but I’m steady tryna change
You mighta been confused, but this a new day
I’m saved now, I ain’t gotta do what you say!
To my friends, who are still on lockdown
Still controlled by their passions, stop now
He can free everybody from the top down
If you’re freed up, say this with me right now

I’m not a, I’m not a Robot now
I’m not a, I’m not a Robot now
I’m not a, I’m not a, I am not a Robot
I’m not a, I’m not a Robot now
