About Chapter Two by Zach Mehaffey:
Zach Mehaffey says, “I’ve never done anything like this, but I wanted to give you an insight into my brain while writing this song. “Ravenous Wolves In The Sheep’s Clothing, Spiritual Gun Gotta Keep Loaded”
Inspired by the words of Jesus in Matthew 7:15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves.” Jesus knew that there would be and will always be false teachers in this world. Jesus calls us to discern these people based on the fruits they bear. My own beliefs about who God was; was very skewed in my early years because of false teachings.
When I was thinking on this term “Ravenous Wolves” though I didn’t immediately think of other people and the false witnesses I’ve crossed paths with. I felt a conviction in myself for the masks I have worn throughout the years pretending to be someone I wasn’t.
I realized how easy it is to only see ourselves as the “hero” in our own stories when we could just as easily be the villain in someone else’s. We are all fallen people.
The “Spiritual Gun” I’m referring to is the Word of God by which we as believers should be checking our own hearts and motives with and using to discern the actions/words of others. I pray each of us come into a more sincere desire to show grace as Christ has and truly lean on Him as our support. Don’t be foolish, but never grow hard-hearted.

Zach Mehaffey is a hip-hop artist from Asheville, NC. From a young age, hip-hop was a big influence on Zach’s life. He began writing at the age of 15. Mainstream hip-hop culture began to set Zach on a downhill path with drugs and alcohol, which played a large role in his high school years. After graduating from high school, and hitting rock bottom, Zach met his savior Jesus Christ which drastically changed his life. In the past couple of years, as he has walked with Jesus, he began making hip-hop music to bring glory to God and impact the culture that almost destroyed him. Now, just turning 24, he has been married for three years and is a new father. He wants to continue this avenue and see what adventures God can lead him on.
