Song writer, and former model; Antione T. Minor (born March 27, 1985) also known as Gods Vessel, is a Hip-Hop Christian recording artist and founder of his own specialty clothing brand since 2009, Show Me the Scriptures.
First debuting in 1997, at the tender age of twelve, as the secular Hip-Hop underground artist, The Captain Elite, Antione went on to later co-write and perform songs like Dream Mate featuring, Shamia and Can I Show You, featuring, Quintell Carter. Soon after he would try a short stint in modeling.
With a growing audience and popularity of over 100,000 followers on social media, Antione’s career was starting to catapult when in the Spring of 2009, after a string of unexpected tragedies Antione faced many challenges.
Confronting those obstacles head-on, Antione had decided to turn away from recording his music, modeling career and other vices that affected his fleshly desires. It was in that moment; he asked the Lord to show him the way.
Once alone, and diligently seeking God’s face, Mr. Minor had confessed his sins to his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. As he confessed all his shortcomings, he asked and received God’s forgiveness.
Moving forward, it was his time to devote himself to reading scriptures, fasting, praying, and crying out to the Lord. When God heard his cry Antione believes that the received this encouragement from GOD, “Son you are gifted, I have given you gifts and spiritual gifts are irrevocable.”
“For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable.” (Romans 11:29)
Acknowledging that he could not return a gift just because he was ready to call it quits, he continued to seek God.
Antione believes that GOD encouraged him, and that encouragement was a new start, “everything before now under the stage name, The Captain Elite is dead. I placed you in the field to mold you for your true journey.”
The Lord showed Antione many scriptures to stand on and confirm His word.
With a rejuvenated spirit, new hunger, and love for Jesus Christ, Antione submitted to the Lord’s new assignment, as his symbolic rebirth, accepting his role as the gospel Hip-Hop artist, Gods Vessel.
Today, still multitalented, and chosen for God service with the Lord Jesus Christ guiding him, he vows to fulfill his purpose in ministry and build a legacy for the generations to come.
Gods Vessel’s musical viewpoint is now rooted in the biblical scripture,
“Therefore, if anyone cleanses himself from what is dishonorable, he will be a vessel for honorable use, set apart as holy, useful to the master of the house, ready for every good work.”
(2 Timothy 2.21)
