Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever! He still seeks and saves those that are lost today as ever! We bless the Name of the Lord for His marvellous works in the land of Zawan. Eternal Life Gospel Crusade, Zawan, Plateau State was indeed the answer to the heart cry of many saints there who have made up their minds not to stop storming heaven with continued, heartfelt intercession until their change come.
The meaning of the word ‘Zawan’ is ‘unwanted grass’ which in reality accounts for the spiritual and physical depravity of the community. The land is known for massive drinking and worship of idols. The Crusade Team would bear witness to the fact that we faced no little opposition to get the gospel to that land even from the Churches there. There seemed to be a kind of terrible coldness about the spirituality of the Churches in Zawan. But thanks be to God who had purposed to bring salvation and liberation to the land. On the first day of the Crusade, we had 84 decisions for Christ and 88 on the second day totalling 172 souls for Jesus! But it didn’t end there, by divine instruction; we claimed the entire land for Jesus as strong intercession and prophetic declarations were made over the land.
We had barely finished the day 2 service when a brother informed us that the venue we used for the Crusades was actually the community’s spiritual alter. It was then we recognized how great a deliverance the Lord had brought to Zawan. Not only were souls won, the Churches were also set ablaze with a holy flame to take the whole community one time for Jesus! The present state of Zawan is described in Isaiah 62:4 “Thou shalt no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall thy land any more be termed Desolate: but thou shalt be called Hephzibah, and thy land Beulah: for the LORD delighteth in thee, and thy land shall be married.” The Lord gave us these worlds for the community. The demonic alter has been replaced by the eternal Kingdom of Jesus Christ! The Churches in Zawan would never remain the same again as a fresh fire has been kindled in their hearts for the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.

It’s very common to here people wish each other “have a great day” but we have hardly taken out time to define what really a great day is. Well, I don’t know what your definition of a great day really is. From the Scriptures, I see the following to be what a great day is and how to have a great day:
1. Start everyday with Prayer and the Study of the Word of God – this brings peace, tranquillity & holds the day together. I’m a witness to this.
2. Make up your mind to and really do something in relation to your Purpose in life (Your life assignment) – everyday.
3. Make up your mind to and really live daily for divine love – let someone be happy that you’re alive everyday (evangelise, give out something, help someone, share encouraging words etc).
4. Invest every time of the day in something productive or expedient (an idle man is…).
5. Watch what you say, see or listen to. Avoid places where unhealthy words of fear, failure, strife etc. are spoken. Words are very powerful!
6. Be sure to ‘jist’ or talk with The Holy Spirit moment by moment daily. He’s your Big Friend who cares.
7. End everyday with prayer of thanksgiving to the Father. Let The Lord have your last word as well as your first word.
Now you know th1s. If you practice these daily, things would change – you will change. HAVE A GREAT DAY!
“This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118:24.
Do you know it only takes a choice to determine your eternal destination? Jesus says "... I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly." (John 10:10). The devil's purpose is to destroy you so that you cannot possess the life Jesus offers you. The choice to remain in the kingdom of the devil or to be transferred to the Kingdom of God is yours. God wants you to come to the side of eternal life and for that to happen, you must choose to accept what He has accomplished through His Son (Jesus Christ) for you. Just pray this prayer sincerely from your heart. It has to be now, please do not procrastinate. Make it NOW!
Dear God, thank you for giving your Son Jesus Christ to die for my salvation making it possible for me to possess eternal life instead of eternal death. I confess Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour and I believe in my heart that you raised Him from the dead for my justification. I declare that I am saved, I am born again, I have eternal life. I ask that you also fill me with your Holy Spirit and help me connect with your eternal purpose for my life. Thank you Father, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
Congratulations! You are now born again. It is important that you get a copy of the Holy Bible, read it and pray everyday to your Heavenly Father and attend a Bible-based Church. You can also get in touch with us, we shall be glad to hear about your salvation.

“So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.” Psalm 90:12
It’s so amazing how many people live their lives as though life begins and ends in this present world. This world is coming to an end – this isn’t out for debate. The Lord Jesus clearly gives us the signs by which we shall know the end of the age in Matthew 24 and we see this in many portions of the Scriptures prophetically highlighted. “Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,” (2 Peter 3:11). The best way to live as Saints of the kingdom of God is by living on earth with eternity in view. This consciousness would help us a great deal. We must always have eternity in view to be able to do things of eternal value. You would agree with me that so often we get carried a way by the cares of this world that we forget what really matters with the Father-God. This ought not to be.
Time is precious, time is opportunity, time is value, time is asset, time is treasure, time is everything! When we leave this earthly world we simply leave the realm of time into the realm of eternity and it is what we do with our time in the world of time that determines our placement in the world of eternity. This is very important and it should get your attention like never before. In the business world, they tell us that time is money, the fire service men would also tell you that delay is dangerous, so would the medical world re-emphasize! Time is God’s gift of value to man. God doesn’t operate in the realm of time and so He sees things differently from men. 2 Peter 3:8 tells us “But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.” To the sinner, time is hope for salvation and once he misses it, he sinks into the realm of eternal death (2 Peter 3:4, 9). To the Saints, time is opportunity to store up eternal treasures as we spend and are spent in the extension of the Kingdom of God on earth.
The Lord Jesus says in Matthew 24:14 “And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.” This is the heart beat of the Father-God! We must act for Him in the rescue of lost humanity. Do something about the Gospel of Jesus everyday you live on earth. This is your only opportunity to make history – to let the whole world know that Jesus is alive and well! We must act fast or we lose! Get going now – it's all for Jesus!
