National Coordinator of Global Restoration Movement, Apostle John Guobadia has been battling with a vision to gather the entire Church of God in this country for a battle to save the soul of the nation from the clutches of Satan.
When he strolled into the corporate headquarters of VANGUARD Media Limited during the week with two of his associates, to preach the message of restoration of Nigeria, it was obvious that I was face-to-face with a man with a heavy burden to salvage a nation that has gone astray.
He was emphatic when he said that in the space of another 10 years a new Nigeria that will become one of the 10 most prosperous and peaceful nations in the world will emerge from the current rumbles.
Before I could ask the question that was playing in my thoughts, the man of God added a caveat, saying: "The task of rescuing and restoring the nation to her place of pride and fulfilment should be seen by all Nigerians as a collective responsibility."
He maintained that the Church has left its first love and is now pursuing worldly things, hence it has lost its power to deal with satanic operations, noting "the state of the nation is a reflection of the state of the Church, which is the hope of the nation."
One of the things, we must we urgently, he said, is to raise an altar of praise at the nat-ion's capital, Abuja.
According to Guobadia, who is based in Ughelli, Delta State, he had been carrying the burden for years now and initially it appeared he was not making any appreciable progress and almost decided to throw in the towel in resignation, but the Holy Spirit and his other associates who are willing to run with the vision won't let him.
Said Guobadia: "It is a call for those that have been prepared by the Lord to come together for a crucial battle to restore the Church, and free Nigeria and thereafter other nations from the encumbrances of Satan, and by so doing restore Nigeria to her place in destiny."
He therefore appealed to all ministers of the gospel who desire to shine the Light of God to key in to this vision and join hands with him to raise an altar to pray for the peace and betterment of the nation which is currently being tormented by Satan.
Guobadia explained that within the 10 years divine operation to reposition the nation, the Holy Spirit will send 10 elders at the nation's gate to liberate and prepare other nations for the end time harvest, adding that the Lord has chosen Nigeria to pre-pare the rest of the nations for the harvest.
