Last night I attended the first day of my church’s annual revival which is themed according to Ezekiel 22:30
“Looking for a man who will build up the wall and stand in the GAP” if you read further it continues by saying “on behalf of the land but I found no one.”
This annual revival is the program I look forward to the most in every church year because it is always indeed truly a revival.
We were charged by the speaker as Christians to pray every time we are about to read the scripture that “As I open the bible, let the bible be open to me” reason being that its possible for our bibles to be open but we will not comprehend the words the way we are supposed to.
He further went by sectioning the discussion thus:
1. Why did God look for a man?
2. What was the cause of this search?
God looked for a man because he needed one who will build up the wall. Physical wall? NO.
a. Wall of righteousness
b. Wall of love in the society, our homes churches etc
c. Wall of unity in the nation
As the physical wall is used for demarcation, so also God wants someone whom will serve as a standard for Christians today. In that once any one acts out of that standard we have set, that person has fallen out of the safety of God and is prone to his wrath and rape by the society like the case of DINA.
Like the physical wall as well, God is searching for one whom would serve as protection for the people so that he does not pour his wrath on the evil world (like when he sent Jonah to Nineveh because of their wickedness). We are to serve as middle men between God and people so that when the wrath of God comes, our righteousness in between will neutralize the wrath and turn it around to blessings to people. To do this is to be strong and fit for the task which proves to not be an easy one.
WILL YOU BE CAPABLE OF BUILDING THE WALL THAT WILL PROTECT THE PEOPLE? WALL OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, PEACE AND JOY.
WILL YOU BE ABLE TO STAND IN THE GAP TO AVERT GODS CURSE ON THE WICKED WORLD?
The revival is on till Sunday watch this space for more words.
God Bless You! And God help us.
