ETERNAL LIFE GOSPEL CRUSADE, ZAWAN, PLATEAU STATE, NIGERIA
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 The demonic alter has been replaced by the eternal Kingdom of Jesus Christ!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.
