UNDERSTANDING THE SEASON – PICTURES FROM GLOBAL SCENES THAT WE ARE NOT SEEING
Greetings from the Revival Altar.
I will give snapshots of my thoughts here and there at random trusting that I will still be able to communicate what is in my heart.
Scene 1: Maiduguri – North Eastern Nigeria:
I am writing this piece from Abuja after a narrow escape from the Maiduguri war front. The Lord had sent us on a prayer mission to Maiduguri. We left the Barma boarder into Zambisa forest and fourty minutes later it became a theater of war with many soldiers killed, many military vehicles seized and the deafening silence by all and sundry as if nothing happened.
Our nation is in a state of war and if the Lord does not help us, we are truly in trouble.
Scene 2: Lagos Nigeria:
Before traveling to Maiduguri, I just returned to Lagos from a month-long retreat at Epe. It was evening and a sea of commuters were traveling home on leg after spending the entire day at work.
It was as if the entire nation has come to Lagos. In all parts of Nigeria, community life is failing and people are hardly taking notice.
Insurgence, violent crime and ethnic cleansing is driving people out from most parts of the north. In the South East, failure of government and hardship is driving people out in their numbers. Everyone is conglomerating in Lagos and soon, the city will not be able to pressure.
