Rev. Dr. Wati Aier Principal, Oriental Theological Seminary, Dimapur, said “The work of restoration belongs to people who are restored” and “to restore the land for Christ, one must be born in the spirit of God”. He was speaking at the third day ‘Restore Nagaland for Christ Crusade' program at Chumukedima Thursday. Speaking on restoring Nagaland for Christ, Rev. Dr. Wati Aier said that God was looking for the best and the brightest for restoring the land. The best and the brightest however, he said “comes from the courage to admit that one is a sinner before God.” “Nagas must turn the world upside down”, “Let us be rebels with the right cause and let us be radicals for right cause”, Dr. Wati affirmed. Referring from Bible he said human beings were supposed to say no to what was wrong and that kind of attitude was the need of the hour. He went on to say that Nagaland could be restored if only people like the 12 disciples were totally committed for a cause. Dr. Wati ended his sermon with a hopeful note saying, “restoring Nagaland means making Nagaland, and we are called to be workers to restore Nagaland for Christ.” The fourth and the fifth day of the crusade would be held at Purana Bazar and city tower with deputy commissioner Dimapur Maongwati Aier and director NCRC mission centre Dimapur Reverend Vevozo Khamo as speakers respectively. The Restore Nagaland for Christ crusade program is being organised byUnited Christian prayer ministries in collaboration with gospel ministries, Bible colleges and Churches in Dimapur for five days on the theme “…I (God) have this against you, that you have abandoned the love you had at first. Rev 2:4” The first day of the crusade was held at DC court junction with director, Sümi Baptist convention Reverend Dr. Hevukhu Achumi as the speaker. Reverend Achumi said that under the banner of ‘Nagaland for Christ’, killings, kidnapping, extortion etc had been taking place in recent times and before it was too late, Nagas needed to confess to their sins and restore relationship with Jesus and even among Nagas. Principal Eastern Bible College Dimapur Reverend Dr. T.N Lotha on the second day of the crusade held at Signal Bosti deliberated on the commitment made by the Nagas to God by declaring the state as “Nagaland for Christ”. Talking about the first commitment made by the national workers and Nagas in 1950 to 1960 which brought peace, joy, love, and unity among the Nagas, he said that to restore the same revival spirit in the society today, ‘we should forgive and ask forgiveness from God.’ He stressed that restoring Nagaland for Christ was a responsibility and restoring relationships among Nagas was the only hope and solution to restore Nagaland.
