“And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left”(Isaiah 30:21).Text — Isaiah 30:18-21
Pa S. G. Elton, an English man, was sent to Nigeria by the Apostolic Church headquarters at Penygroes, Wales, after a prophecy from one of the church leaders during a meeting saying, “Send my servant Elton to Nigeria.” It is believed that the Holy Spirit specifically mentioned Ilesha. In obedience to God, he and his wife and only three year old daughter, Ruth, set out for Nigeria, arriving Lagos on March 11, 1937. He settled in Ilesha from where he carried out his ministry to Churches, individuals, university campuses and Pentecostal fellowships in many parts of Nigeria. He was a great positive influence on many Pentecostal ministers in Nigeria. He died in 1987, after over 50 years of meritorious service to God and humanity, and was buried in Ilesha.
Just like the story above, youths who have received Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Saviour have the privilege of divine guidance. God instructs and guides through His Word, inner witness of the Holy Spirit, restriction, dreams, prophecies and visions. By these, He sets believers on the right path.
