Heaven is such a musical place. Nowhere in the Holy Scriptures is this picture so clearly painted as in the vision of John the Apostle recorded so vividly for us in the Book of Revelation. Positioned at the end of the Bible, the Revelation to John is perhaps a wise reminder that our heavenly home is a habitation overflowing with unending blissful worship of Almighty God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Worship music pervades Heaven, glorifying God for who He is and all His wonderful works in creation. Praise, honour, glory and power to God forever.

“Great and marvellous are your deeds, Lord God Almighty. Just and true are your ways, King of the ages. Who will not fear you, O Lord, and bring glory to your name? For you alone are holy. All nations will come and worship before you, for your righteous acts have been revealed”, sing the triumphant saints in Heaven as recorded in Revelation 15:3-4). As we worship and praise God’s holy name in this 20th year of the London Holy Ghost Festival of Life, it is apt to remember all His great acts of faithfulness, kindness and mercy to us. From a modest meeting that began with the obedience of our Father-in-the-Lord Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye in 1996 here in London, we are witnesses today to the tens of thousands that gather to praise God and pray for revival in the land at the Festival of Life. Many more join in the meetings though satellite television and various online platforms. Without doubt, this 20th anniversary celebration is the fruit of a divine partnership between our General Overseer and Almighty God. Friendship with God has benefits. Obedience to divine instructions, in spite of the facts on the ground, always yields astonishing testimonies.

“Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in the mountain of his holiness. Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is mount Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the great King.” (Psalm 48:1-2)

That which we celebrate this season with regard to the Festival of Life (FOL) is a testament of God’s amazing faithfulness. Indeed, it does lead one to joyfully sing, “This is the Lord’s doing; it is marvellous in our eyes” (Psalm 118:23). When we give the glory to God, He of course does more for us in return. Importantly, it is fascinating to note the agency of the Holy Spirit in all the move of God regarding FOL. We believe revival is on the horizon for the United Kingdom once again in this generation, and that it is being birthed by the Holy Spirit.

Which is why this special 20th anniversary edition of Sunrise is dedicated to the Holy Spirit, the promise of the Father, given to us through the Son. What a picture of divine cooperation! As John the Baptist announced Him long ago: “I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance, but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:” (Matthew 3:11). May the Spirit’s fire purge you and renew your fervour for Heavenly matters as we celebrate our great God.
