Overview

Imagine having it all and leaving it all behind -- to answer a higher calling...
REVELATIONS
His rise to fame was one of rap's great success stories. He had millions of fans and the prospect of multi-millions of dollars. But just as Ma#&36;e -- as he was then called -- was poised to sign a deal with Sean "Puffy" Combs' famed Bad Boy Records, he walked away.
Revelations is Mason Betha's powerful memoir about a miraculous transformation: his own -- from the material-minded Ma$e to the pastor he has become. Here, Betha reveals the rhyme and reason behind his choice to trade in his sensational music career for a richer, more spiritual one. As founder of a nondenominational movement called S.A.N.E. (Saving a Nation Endangered) Ministries, Betha has traveled throughout the country to share his messages of peace and prosperity with today's youth. Revelations is his testament to the enduring power of faith, and to the limitless possibilities in a life transformed by God's guiding hand.

    more from this reviewer

    I Also Recommend:

    Maze as the preacher

    This book was not bad but I expected much more. He talked about his transformation to Christ more than his life with Bad Boy. I wasn't disappointed because he opened my eyes through his search for God. It was not expected for him to find God but the Lord tried to get him through alot of people. He finally succeeded to get Mason because Ma$e no longer exist. I commend you on your journey. You are rewarded from God daily for your decision to choose him and give up on the expensive cars and homes, weed, record label, money, and girls. Continue to be bless, Mason! You and your wife continue to save souls because it is needed in this world.

    Greatest Book I've ever read

    I rate this book a 5 out of 5, it was amazing. This book sends out a very good messages and shows you how someone can completely turn their life around. Ma$e¿s rise to fame was one of hip-hop¿s greatest success stories. He had millions of fans and was making millions of dollars. But just as Ma$e was about to sign a big record deal with Bad Boy Records, he walked away. He got all of these weird messages from God in various ways, telling him to stop living like this and to turn close to God. Mason gave away all of his jewelry, his cars, all of his riches, he just gave them away because he felt that God was telling him to. Then he became a pastor. How amazing is his story? I found this story very amazing and positive. If I could put this message into my own words I would say that this book is saying that no matter how much money you make or how much fame you have, that type of stuff doesn¿t bring you true happiness, only God¿s love can bring you true happiness. Mason had everything but had to answer a higher calling from God. I would recommend this book to anyone who has an open mind and interest to reading or learning about peoples lifestyles and what God can do for you. I probable would particularly recommend it to High School aged students or younger adults.

    GOOD JOB!

    I THINK MASE IS DOING A GREAT JOB, AND HE IS NOT SENDING A MIXED MESSAGE BY BEING BACK IN THE RAP GAME BECAUSE HE IS TRYING TO LET EVERYONE WHO IS IN THE RAP GAME KNOW THAT THERE IS LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL, AND THAT RAP THAT PROMOTES A NEGATIVE VIBE DOES NOT HAVE TO BE YOUR WHOLE LIFE. YOU CAN BE VERY POSITIVE AND STILL RAP.I RESPECT MASE FOR WHAT HE IS DOING AND I WISH EVERY RAPPER COULD BENEFIT FROM THIS BOOK AND AND FROM MASE AND BE BETTER PEOPLE,THIS GENERATION IS TOO SPOILED AND HAVE LITTLE OR NO GOALS AND ALL THEY WANT TO HEAR ABOUT IS THUG LIFE AND GANG BANGING THEY NEED TO LOOK UP TO MASE IS OUT THERE DOING SOMETHING WITH HIMSELF. GOD BLESS MASE AND I HOPE HE IS HERE TO STAY!

    This book is great, it shows how he changed his entire life for God. But isn't he sending a confusing message now that he is BACK in the rap industry????

    TIME IS RUNNING OUT IT'S TIME TO MAKE THAT CHANGE. GOD CAN CHANGE AND USE ANYONE.

    MY NAME IS STELLA FROM CA. I COME FROM A CHRISTIAN HOUSEHOLD. WHEN I FIRST READ PASTOR MASEN BOOK IT REALLY MADE ME WANT TO STOP SINNING BECAUSE THE WAY THAT I WAS RAISED. IT REALLY MADE ME FEEL ASHAMED OF MY SELF FOR KEEP ON TURNING BACK TO THE PAST. I SAT DOWN IN BARNES AND NOBLE ONE DAY AND READ A HUNDRED AND SOMETHING PAGES AND THEN I HAD CAME BACK THE NEXT DAY AND FINISHED THE WHOLE BOOK. I KNOW THAT GOD USED HIM TO SAVE SOULS AND MAYBE ONE DAY GOD WILL USE HIM TO SAVE THE WHOLE RAP AND HIP-HOP NATION LIKE HE DID ME. GOD BLESS LET HIM USE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!

    Marvelous

    I was so impressed, shocked, and satisfied w/ this book. His life, the entertainment business, the spirituality, the honesty the forthcoming of him from an artist to a Pastor. I recommend it to ANYBODY especially guys on the street who has NO spiritual guidance or way what-so-ever... IT CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE (AND they way you think).

    it truly changed and inspired me

    This book was very inspirational to me. Pastor Mason is a great example of Gods Work. God is able to use anybody, no matter what they have done their past. Pastor Mason was a man that gave up wordly fame and fortune for God. Many people today don't have nearly what Pastor Mason had but are still holding on to the things of the world that will never bring them true pleasure and fortune. Why not try God. God is truly using Pastor Betha. I am so glad that I read this book because it made me see that living for God is not hard at all; anyone can do it if they just have the faith, the will and believe.

    A life transformed

    The book was a nice revelation into a life of a superstar...a life most people envy until one realizes the never ending cycle of more money, sex and drugs that leaves one empty and searching for more..Mase was the perfect tool that God called for a higher purpose ..I man who had it all but had nothing until he found GOD...Funny thing about the book..I was'nt suprised about the path MASE has taken..he seemed above all that fame and life of a Bad Boy artist!

    Truly a God-Inspired Testimony from a Convicted Man of God...

    I read this book from 12:00am-5:00am and it made me feel the way I did when I first got saved & when I was Baptized and I realized this morning that I want to feel that way all day everyday and there is no valid reason why I shouldn't, not one that's good enough anyway and as soon as I voiced it I felt God doing some amazing things in my life for me and for the world through me and I just can't wait... i feel like it's Christmas!!! I've had this book for like months... probably almost a year but I never read it cause I was still kinda hung up on MA$E, but circumstances that happened last night lead me to coming home late and picking this book to read it had been in my car to like I was supposed to read it and it was just so real one of the realest things that I have ever read besides the Bible it self... you ever had something speak so out loud to you that it would be a sin... almost blasphemous to turn away and act like you never heard or saw it... that's how this book was to me it just convicted me page after page after page... just amazing... truly God Sent...

    Inspirational

    This book was so enlightening. It is an example of how God has the power to do ALL things. This is a great book for teenagers and young adults to read; the effect could only be positive. May God continue to bless Pastor Betha and may he continue to reach a multitude of people with his inspirational story and message.

    This book really open my eyes.....

    After I read Revelations: There's A Light after the Lime, my life changed. Pastor Mason Betha opened my eyes with his sermons and testimonies. Pastor Mason Betha said 'We live in a contemporary society. Contemporary. It's 'con' meaning deceiful for personal gain. And it's temporary meaning a fad, a phase, a moment, a myth, it will fade away'. I will never forget that verse. This is a book that every child, and adult should read!!!

    Only read first couple of pages.

    I have only read the first few pages but am sure that GOD wrote this book for him he is blessed with a touch that just creates a new person in you and it forces the old man to die. God bless all those who read it.

    This is a Book The Youths Would Enjoys

    Oh, this book is great. Pastor Mason Betha is being used by God in great ways. God can change a sinner into a saint at any age and any life. I was not shocked at all the things that goes on in the music business but it shows God can move through anyone at any given time. So be prepared!!1
