“Is It Rapture? Get Your PVC” – Nigerians React As ‘Jesus’ Trends Online


“Is It Rapture?” - Nigerians React As ‘Jesus’ Trends On WhatsApp, TwitterMany Nigerians have taken to social media to participate in a challenge, causing the name ‘Jesus’ to trend across various platforms.

In Christianity, Jesus is the Son of God and in mainstream Christian denomination, he is the son of God and the second person in the Trinity.

Jesus is believed to be the Jewish messiah (the Christ) who is prophesied in the Old Testament section of the Bible.

The challenge began after popular Christian musician and saxophonist, Nathaniel Bassey earlier today gave an instruction to his followers.

He asked them to put up an image which reads ‘Jesus’ as their profile photo across various social media platforms, including WhatsApp and Twitter at exactly 12pm.

The gospel singer also asked followers to declare the name of Jesus into the atmosphere and that when the world asks what’s going on, their response should be; “JESUS IS GOING ON!

Bassey then shared a Bible passage – Phillipians 2-9-11 which talks about God highly exalted his son and given him a name which is above every name.

Can we make this our profile picture at 12 noon on all your social media handles? (WAT) in a few minutes Time. Also share as a post on your timeline and as your story. And for the rest of the day ??? And also declare that name into the atmosphere ! JESUS!
Let the world ask what is going on.
And we’ll tell them – JESUS IS GOING ON !

Can we do this?
Tag others !

9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
Phil 2:9-11

Let’s release this fragrance over our land and nation. And the nations of the earth.
