Dear GMA Family,

Calvary Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ whose Love and Mercy has been our succor in times like this.

These are indeed tough, challenging, and very scary times, especially with the wide and fast spread of COVID-19 in our Neighborhoods, States, Countries, and the World at large.

While I encourage us all to stay Safe, be Careful and Abide by the CDC’s and WHO’s instructions for keeping safe, I will also like to use this medium to implore you to seek the voice of God in the midst of all the panic and scare. There is a message in everything that happens, so ask yourself, “What is God trying to say to ME as an individual and US as a people”?

For us at Gospel Music Africa, we know that God is calling on this cruel world to Return to Him.

In December 2019, as part of preparations for the second season of the GMA Reality TV Competition, we sought the face of God for directions as we needed to know what the Theme for this year’s competition should be and the message He needed us to send out through the competition.

“THE RETURN” was the Theme God gave us with the following scripture supporting it.

“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from Heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land” (2 Chronicles 7:14 KJV).

Why The Return? I asked; The Spirit of God began to explain that God created this world with Order, everything in its own place, each creation taking care of each other and complimenting each other, but somehow Man has managed to create things, norms, traditions, practices, beliefs that constantly distort this Order.

Read Genesis Chapter 18 and 19 and you’d realize there’s hardly any difference between the world today as we know it and Sodom and Gomorrah.

There is so much evil in the land that even the earth is beginning to react to it; Earthquakes, floods, fires, excessive heat, diseases, and now COVID-19.

Remember, there is a Message in everything that happens in this Life.

 God loves us so much that He sent His only begotten SON Jesus that whosoever believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting life. (John 3:16).

As we spread the message of hope, safety and prevention against COVID-19, I will like us to also as a matter of necessity spread the message in 2 Chronicles 7:14.

Let us all RETURN to God as Individuals, as a People, and as a Nation.

From all of us at GMA we sayDo the 5 (Isaiah 26:20) and also do the 1 (2 Chronicles 7:14)”

Stay SAFE and God bless you.
