Last year, I was led to do a short study of the Book of Joel. As we pass through this pivotal season in this year 2020, it has dawned on me how the broad themes of this Old Testament prophecy lines up with what I perceive to be God's intent and prophetic calendar, in this season.

In the first chapter we see God's people suffering a locust army invasion, which came about because they became complacent and dropped the ball, with regard to living by the Covenant in operation at the time. And the prophet was sent to warn them, to wake them up, and to stir up the people of God toward repentance.
Most notable is that this locust army invasion did bring about severe negative economic fallout. And like what is happening now, what the Prophet asked them in Joel 1:2-3 was if anything like it happened in their days, or in the days of their fathers.
Moving on to chapter 2, it was time to sanctify a fast and call forth a solemn assembly. And as the prophet preached on, he got to a point where the utterance of the Lord came in first person thus:

Joel 2:11–13 (NASB95):
11 The Lord utters His voice before His army;
Surely His camp is very great,
For strong is he who carries out His word.
The day of the Lord is indeed great and very awesome,
And who can endure it?
12 “Yet even now,” declares the Lord,
“Return to Me with all your heart,
And with fasting, weeping and mourning;
13 And rend your heart and not your garments.”

I do believe that these are the same words being echoed to the Body of Christ today by the Spirit of the Lord.

Those in the middle of God's purposes shall always outlast the shaking, because they are part of a kingdom that cannot be shaken.

And for those who will heed this call, revival is about to burst forth, as laid out in the latter part of Joel Chapter 2. We see Redemptive promises released, which culminates in what we all now know as "The Promise of Pentecost", cited by Peter the Apostle in Acts 2, in the midst of the very first outpouring of the Spirit.
Those who respond to the call of God in this season should expect to see and taste of another outpouring in the coming months.

Following this, as laid out in Chapter 3 will be a time of reckoning, judgement and recompense, to be visited on the nations. We shall see multitudes trapped in the valley of Jehoshaphat(which means "Yahweh is judge"). There will be a time for vindication of the saints and faithful followers of the Lord, and a terrible time for the nations, especially those who are dead-set against the Lord God and against His Christ.

Behold another window is opened on earth, for the gospel to be thrust forth, and a massive scale of soul harvest to be brought into the Kingdom. It will be a manifestation of victory and vindication for those who have persevered in the purposes of the Lord.
But for now, we all must come and cry before the altar; for repentance must precede revival, the sacrifice of self must be made for the purposes of God, and we must embrace the cross in this hour, in order to access the gains of this now-season of aggressive expansion of the Kingdom.
Those in the middle of God's purposes shall always outlast the shaking, because they are part of a kingdom that cannot be shaken.

I have a burning passion in seeing Christians progress in these things:

1. Living in accordance with the dictates of the word of God, the scriptures (The Holy bible)
2. Throwing off every vestige of religious formalism and false piety.
3. Embracing an intimate walk with the Holy Spirit.

My writing and blogging is a contribution to a push for revival and an end-time summons for the Body of Christ to awaken to her destiny, in making "a people prepared" for the coming of the Lord Jesus.

Entry 3: Ekaete You Cannot Text My Husband

Busola always had her suspicions about the kind of information that were constantly leaving and entering her husband's phone.  She trusted her husband but the text alerts were becoming very unbecoming. She resolved to unraveling the mystery. For the first time in months, Samson left his phone in the dining. She sneaked with the phone into their laundry room and what she saw made her boil with anger. She sobbed. Tears rolled down Busola's cheeks  as she read one particular message . Samson:  Eka babe I am sure you are on your way. Have a great time. Send me pictures of your trip Take care of U 4 me Ekaete:  Sorry I didn't phone you back. The trip has been soooo busy! I'll call you today. Not sure how early I can call XOXO Thoughts raced through her mind . Could they be having an affair? Do they really share hugs and kisses? Take care of you for me?? Really? Am I making a mountain out of a molehill? He has a pet name for her? Oh My God, am I dreaming? Does she share expl

Making Connections

By Dr Uvoh Onoriobe Here is how the story goes... I visited Swaziland with Joyce Meyer's Hand of Hope about three years ago on medical mission. While there, I was moved to tears to see children playing with a bundle of rubber. It was their best attempt at making their own soccer ball. When I returned from that trip, I made calls to friends to collect used and new soccer gear on Facebook. Sonja Denise, a kindhearted Christian lady responded immediately and donated some soccer balls for the children in Swaziland. I took one ball with me on a mission to Northern Nigeria last year. While treating dental patients, a young boy caught my attention. He was about six years old and was selling peanuts. It occurred to me that the ball belonged to him. I beckoned on him to come, that I had a gift for him. He ran away. He did not trust this stranger dentist. He thought I wanted to extract his teeth. Long story made short, I gained his trust and he agreed to come get the ball. He

Is The Forthcoming Elections a Make or Break for Nigeria?

I grew up learning about Nigeria's civil war. I grew up learning about the boldness of an Anioma youth: the late Patrick Chukwuma Kaduna Nzeogwu. He spearheaded the failed January 15, 1966, coup.  Since that bloody coup, mistrust between the North and South of Nigeria has been ongoing.  Fast forward to 2016- Speaking at the 50th commemoration of the death of Ahmadu Bello, President Buhari described the assassination of the prominent Northern premiere and its consequence on Nigeria. “The events of January 15, 1966, were a monumental tragedy. They set in motion other tragedies that severely bucketed our country. The assassination of our revered Sir Ahmadu Bello, Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa, Chief Okotie Eboh, Brig.-Gen. Maimalari and other political and military leaders pushed Nigeria to a new dangerous place, culminating in a civil war. I lived through these events as a young officer. “My generation can testify that this is an important value and that it is better to talk through our

POTUS, Be Like King Jehoshaphat

There is a beautiful account of God's deliverance given in 2 Chronicle 20:2-3 Then there came some that told Jehoshaphat, saying, There comes a great multitude against you from beyond the sea on this side Syria; and, behold, they be in Hazazontamar, which is Engedi.And Jehoshaphat feared, and set himself to seek the LORD, and proclaimed a fast throughout all Judah. John Piper wrote : "Jehoshaphat caught wind of the impending attack. It didn’t take a Pythagoras to do the math. His army was like a sandcastle facing a large breaker. The kingdom of Judah would be swept away unless he got some very strong help. Now, forget for the moment that you know the fairytale-like ending to the story. What would it have been like to be Jehoshaphat? Bearing down on him was a brutal death for himself, everyone he loves, and tens of thousands of his people. And everyone was looking to him to do something to save them. That’s pressure." Let's humble ourselves and ask God to res
