We are on the verge of an outpour of God’s Spirit like we have never seen before – the Last Day revival is at the door! Just like in the day of Pentecost as described in Acts chapter 2, there is a position that the Church must take – to be in one accord in one place. A revival is coming, and the Body of Christ, even amidst her wondrous exploits, seems too busy, focused on differences rather than on engendering the unity of faith among believers.
There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. Ephesians 4:4-6
One Sound Revival TV is a non-denominational, non-governmental organization made up of believers from all walks of life who hold the conviction of Ephesians 4:4-6
There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. – Ephesians 4:4-6
We believe that unity of the church refers to the union of the people of God, in all their various distinctiveS and expressions, bound to God and to one another by the gospel. The unity of the church is to be a reflection of the unity of the one God upon which the church is built.
Revival is the visitation of God which brings to life Christians who have been sleeping and restores a deep sense of God’s near presence and holiness. Thence springs a vivid sense of sin and a profound exercise of heart in repentance, praise, and love, with an evangelistic outflow. -J.I. Packer
When we hear and relate to the act of worship, words, and songs come to mind but, it is not restricted to words and songs alone. In the Old testament, kneeling, prostrating, and falling face down were all acts of worship, even adoration in silence is an act of worship. The key component in worship, no matter what posture you decide to take, is the involvement of the heart in humility, respect, and total submission to God. This is the worship that reaches and touches God. Many great men both in the Old and New testaments and many more in contemporary times, who have done great things in the name of God, raising the dead, healing the sick, and casting out devils amongst many other things, have mostly had one thing in common – the worship of God with a child-like heart. They did not just focus on having prayer times but, their secret was in
The name Archbishop Benson Andrew Idahosa is one that cannot be forgotten in a generation that desires to worship a living God. Yes, I mean a living God. Although gone to be with the Lord, his message about God and the display of his power is still imparting many and causing the faith of many to mature, baptizing many young men and women with the power to stand against and destroy evil in this generation. Benson Andrew Idahosa (11 September 1938 – 12 March 1998) was a charismatic pentecostal preacher, and the founding father of the Church of God Mission International with headquarters in Benin City, Nigeria. As the first pentecostal Archbishop in Nigeria, he was well known for his life of faith.
A Revival where the salvation of souls is not the focus is not a revival. A Revival brings to the forefront the essence of Jesus’ death and resurrection – the salvation of souls. Many around the world do not even know they need to be saved, they do not realize the reality of the gospel and its saving power. There are certain believers today who are of the opinion that living right and doing good works are all it takes to reach the world and turn people to Christ. Some others also criticize the approach of those who actively evangelize, share tracts and preach the gospel with every opportunity as being too confrontational.
The great importance of prophecy to the body of Christ today is the extant Word of God to encourage and guide His people. A prophetic message is “a word fitly spoken” (Proverbs 25:11), from God, “good for edifying, as fits the occasion, that it may accord grace, faith to those who hear” (Ephesians 4:29).
These may be words of comfort, assurance, exhortation, admonition, exposure, and correction- all of these are intended by the Spirit to bring and maintain renewal in Christ’s church, to cause the church to move forward, grow and mature according to the will of God in their Faith in God and all that concerns him.
If we are sick, we ought to have the boldness and confidence to ask for healing. The same God who parted the Red Sea, healed the lame, gave sight to the blind, and raised the dead are still in the business of healing.
Let us consider one of such times, when God through His Prophet, Dr. Isaiah Wealth healed a lady of Asthma.
In the month of April 2016, the Prophet gave a prophetic word of a sister he had to pray for the lady in question had difficulty breathing, a medical condition known as Asthma.
The man of God further mentioned that this problem began not too long ago, she was not born with it, neither was it in her immediate bloodline.
The journey to supping with Jesus, the journey to a revival is detailed all over scriptures and Revelation 3:20 captures that journey.
“Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hears my voice, and opens the door, I will come into him and will sup with him, and he with me.”
The willingness of the Father to bring us to Him and Him with us is not in question. His willingness is too consistent for us to doubt.
Why then do we not experience revival? Here are some questions we really need to ask:….
Spiritual encounters and visions are one of God’s ways of communicating His intentions, His will, and His desires to His people.
God does not at any time want His people groping in the dark concerning any aspect of life especially in their walk with Him and so, under the subject of revival, He is very much interested in ensuring that we know what to do per time or what not to do in order to experience the revival He has promised.
Consequently, let us consider a vision shown by the Spirit of God to an intercessor to prepare the Body of Christ for revival.
The fire of past revivals was dwindled and even quenched by corruption, division, materialism, personality clash, greed, and idolatry. The worship of money and agendas to uproot Christianity in the land are evidence that the Church is losing her fire.
Nigeria, like many other African countries, has become a killing field of defenseless Christians as she is now home to some of the world’s deadliest groups, Boko Haram, ISWAP, and Armed Fulani herdsmen.
Recent reports revealed that there are close to a million unreached people groups and close to half a million Muslims who need Jesus. We need another great revival and we need it now!
During the previous semester, and a few weeks before the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the Wheaton College Campus, there had already been a significant stirring in the lives of individuals, there was an organized prayer for revival lasting for several weeks…………….
In the words of Arthur Tappan Pierson, “There has never been a spiritual awakening in any country or locality that did not begin in united prayer”
All revivals can trace their roots back to the place of prayer and if we want to see the church revived again, we would need to give ourselves, our time to prayer. No prayer, no revival!
We must learn to start and end our day in the place of prayer. We must commit to intense and earnest prayer and when we are already on fire, we can get others to join us in prayer.
There is no greater record of unity in the bible quite as fascinating as the story of Babel and if there is any lesson to learn, it is that a people united in understanding and purpose will always win, they can never fail as long as they remain united.
Humans would have built a tower to heaven (if God had not intervened) by sheer unity! Imagine such a feat!
How much more can the body of Christ do if we are united?
God is not looking for more denominations, He is not looking for more church buildings, though these are good things to have and build but they are worthless to Him when we cannot find a reason to come together for the one purpose for the Church on earth -Souls!
