BATON OF REVIVAL
Psalms 85:6 – Will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in you? (NIV)
A great revivalist of the 1930s and 40s; with his bell, garment, and a pair of sandals, he preached and terrorised demons and herbalists. Many times, the dead were brought to his ministration, and without a touch, they rose (Matthew 10:7-10). This man of God was a blazing fireball (Acts 1:8). He is Apostle Joseph Ayo Babalola, who turned the mountains to his ‘Prayer Gym’. In one of his prayer sessions, a python crawled over him, and he never bothered only to discover later that the python had dried up (Luke 10:19).
This is not to praise man but to show that it is possible to manifest God’s power in our generation. Like the apostles of old, Babalola’s ministry is a wake-up call because nowadays, we have prayer consultants but a few prayer warriors. Numerous speakers but limited spirit-led preachers. Therefore, God is seeking for souls that He can infest with unction, to trigger ground-breaking revivals (Ezekiel 22:30). Thank God for innovations, but these should never take the place of holiness, prayer, and the word. We must thirst for the Holy Ghost and boldness because if we falter, we fail God.
Beloved, are you ready to take up the baton of revival? If yes, in line with today’s Bible reading, you will pray: ‘Lord set me on fire for You and cause the world to watch me burn’ (Romans 8:19).
Hymn: Let the Fire Fall on Me – William J. Henry (1953)
THE MIDNIGHT PRAYER
1. Father, I release myself to You, please, revive me within and without.
2. Where I least expect, Father, let gigantic doors open for me.
3. Secret hunters of my life, family and the church. Receive divine judgement!
BE BORN AGAIN!
