ust in case you have never heard of the great revivalist Apostle Joseph Ayodele Babalola of blessed memory, I'd like to start with this powerful story. This was a story told by one of those who worked with him while he was alive.

There was a highly dreaded evil bush in those days that no one could enter. There were demonic spirits there; no one in the village would dare go there. However, this bush which was occupying a large expanse of land was given as a gift to the man of God for his preaching efforts.

Apostle Babalola went into this bush with his prayer warriors to pray. With a very loud voice, he called out this first prayer point: "O God arise and let all Your enemies in this bush be scattered in the name of Jesus Christ!" According to one of the eyewitnesses, suddenly they began to hear sounds as of steps of people running away. They didn't see anyone, but they heard sounds. Obviously, those demonic spirits took off.

After some time, there was quietness, and the man of God ordered those who had followed him to begin to cut down the bush. As they were cutting, they saw a python coming down from a mountain in that bush. Those cutting the bush were about running away, but the man of God instructed them to continue with the cutting.

The python rolled on majestically, and it was obvious it had come for the man of God. As it neared, Apostle Ayo Babalola declared, "Let the fire of the God of Elijah fall down and consume you" Immediately, there was as it were a literal fire which consumed the snake and it dried up immediately. That was the kind of spiritual power and authority Babalola carried around. Of course, this was not unconnected with the intensity of his prayer life. Apostle Joseph Ayodele Babalola's prayer life will challenge anyone to seriously reconsider his Christian life and begin to pray.

Get ready as we go on this extraordinary journey as we examine the Man, Apostle Joseph Ayo Babalola. You will be blessed indeed.
