The great turnaround is a moment in the life of a man that such man experienced an unusual visitation that left him with a testimony of answered prayers.
Jesus was passing through Jericho when Bartimaeus heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth that was passing. He could no longer hold his peace because wherever and whenever Jesus passes by, in any location, the environment or the people of that region must testify about his passing. This was the understanding that the son of Timaeus called the “Blind Bartimaeus” had. He shouted again and again! “Jesus, thou son of David, have mercy on me!” Again, and again, he shouted until his voice came to Jesus. He beckoned on him; his sight was restored…for him, that was a great turnaround. The testimony was no longer the blind Bartimaeus but is it now, I was blind but now, I can see.
Another fellow we can talk about is the man at the pool of Bethsaida who had been bedridden for 38 years, a single moment with God, the 38 years of shame, reproach and agony became a testimony that we are still reading and talking about today. There was an instant great turnaround in his life.
Eighteen years of agony and pain of being bent over was never a joke. This was the woman that was possessed by the spirit of infirmity for 18 years. The moment Jesus came in contact with her, there was a great turnaround. She was delivered from that demon that has held her bowed for 18 years.
What about the mad man of Gadarenes, he was in the same suite with others but his own was more pathetic by having over 6,000 demons living in him. Jesus also came to the scene; he was also delivered. Isn’t that wonderful? The testimony of great turnaround can be from different areas of life. The wife of one of the sons of the prophets was also heavily indebted but God brought a prophet in contact with her family, not only was she able to settle her debts but she had enough to live with for the rest of her life. It is was a great turnaround for a debtor to be free from debts and later have enough to live with. The 10 lepers too were also enjoyed the same visitation and they had a testimony of turnaround and one that returned to give thanks to God had a testimony of a great turnaround, not only was he healed, he was made whole.
Constant with all these stories was an encounter with Jesus and also with a man of God. The question is where are you right now? What are you doing or what are the challenges? Be ready for a great turnaround as GOD Himself is ready to do you good and turn situations around in your favour.
The question is where is it happening and when?
It will be happening live at KM 46, Lagos-Ibadan Expressway at the Redemption camp between December 9th and 14th, 2019 at the annual congress of the Redeemed Christian Church of God.
Jesus will be present and he will be working great turnaround in the life all participants through his anointed son that he has prepared, Pastor E. A Adeboye and other anointed men of God.
The great turnaround must begin with you. Come along with your friends. Tell the sick, the destitute, the broken-hearted, the delayed, the unmarried etc. that it is their season to be celebrated.
God bless you as you attend!!!
