What a great time we had at ‘ALIVE! 2010’. ALIVE! Is an annual event for Believers organised by Zoe World Evangelism Ministry (The Evangelistic Ministry of David C. Okoye) and held on every Good Friday of the year to celebrate the risen and living Jesus, spark up a holy flame for world evangelisation among the saints and make heartfelt intercession for the salvation of souls all over the world! Last year (2009)we held the first one in Jos, Plateau State of Nigeria. It was an awesome start up of this annual event. And this year it was held in Abuja, Nigeria. Indeed it was simply a divine set up by the Holy Spirit. The atmosphere was that of true worship to the risen Christ. The Lord unveiled the Word to us in an immeasurable way which led to a renewed commitment to the Great Commission and a deluge of intercession for the salvation of souls all over the world. It was indeed an extraordinary meeting with the Holy Ghost!
I believer Good Fridays should not only be remembered with Communion services, but it should also be a time to reflect on how faithful we have been to the Heavenly vision. Jesus said if you love me, keep my commandment (John 14:15). Our obedience is THE PROOF of our love for The Master. The Great Commission must be taken more seriously especially in this historic moment when we see Bible prophecy unfold before our very eyes. This, indeed, is a prophetic age and we must not fail our Lord Jesus. This should be our most treasured moment. Now is the time to act. If we delay, we lose! Reflecting on and evaluating our level of obedience to the Supreme mandate – The Great Commission – should be a major highlight of our Easter celebrations. Isaiah 6:8 says “Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.” This is still the heart cry of the Lord, will you respond today? Please do!
