Part 21 - My Father's Farmland


 Oba, Ola and Ope were in a big farmland rushing towards a particular farm. They seemed very angry over something. Ope was the one leading the squad.

They got to a very large farmland, and written on it was “Sunkanmi Emmanuel”. Ola was carrying fuel, which she poured on the few crops on the Land. Ope followed suit by lighting a fire. The farmland caught fire and out of nowhere, 10 strong valiant looking men appeared. 2 of them spat out water from their mouths and quenched the fire, while the remaining 8 of them rounded the trio.
With hands as strong as hammer, they beat the trio to coma, and with their long legs they tossed Ola, Ope and Oba like footballs and kicked them faraway from Sunkanmi’s farm...
Mama Aladura snapped out of her vision...
“Ha!,” Mama Aladura screamed. She stood up from the mountain, while placing a call to her son...
“ Lucky, who is Sunkanmi Emmanuel?” Mama Aladura said to her son...
“He is a guy claiming to be a pastor...”
“ Ha!, he is not just a guy, he is a servant of God, a great one at that, I don’t know what business your wife has with him, but she must have done something against him, which made some heavenly beings to be angry with her... The man has angels working with his ministry, it is those angels that defended his interest...”
“ Ha! Mother!, What can we do, I told them I am bringing Ope to you, my wife is not dead...” Lucky said weeping
“ I am on my way to town already, which hospital are you at the moment?”
“ State hospital!”
“ Ok... in the meantime, let’s find how you can get to the pastor... it is very important...”
“ Why?”
“Lucky, stop your questioning and obey me for once...”
Lucky knew there was a deeper meaning to what his mother had just said. He was the only son of his mother who had three other daughters. He was the rebellious one. His mother had trained them in the way of the Lord, but he had always wanted to be on the other side of life...
He wanted the drinking, clubbing, smoking, womanizing part of life, but his mother would not agree, which made him to become rebellious very early always arguing with his mother...
At that point, he knew arguments was not going to solve his problem as Ope had been confirmed dead 5 minutes earlier, but he trusted the God of his mother could raise her up...
Sukki had heard the bad news from Austin. Sexy Sasha was dead, Strawberry and her brother were in coma...
“ God, three souls can’t be lost because of me, please father, bring them back!” Sukki cried in his bedroom.
The kick the valiant men had given the trio landed them before a big gate, that opened up to a large farmland...
A man dressed as a farmer who was the gateman of the farmland saw the trio. He walked up to them and told them to follow him...
The trio walked quietly behind the farmer as they approached a beautiful Farmhouse ahead...
When they got to the farmhouse, the farmer said from below looking up to the tall farmhouse.
“ Father, your children Oluwasomidoba, Idiopemipo and Kikiolaoluwa, the earthly children of Jenriayegbe have arrived...
HIM who was called FATHER Stepped out of His Farmhouse. He looked Ancient but Handsome.
The trio found themselves bowing before FATHER....
“ Oluwasomidoba, Idiopemipo and Kikiolaoluwa, what are you doing here? I wasn’t expecting you back here so soon, Oluwasomidoba, you still have 56 years more to spend, if you wanted to, while You two girls still have 57 years more to spend, so why the rush back home?”
“ We were cut down by the men watching over Sunkanmi Emmanuel’s farm” Oba said with regrets...
“ I know, I was just asking you why you let anger, unforgiveness to get the best of you.. You caused your untimely return yourselves... “Father said
“ We are sorry, we felt he was trying to grow poisonous crops on his farm that will destroy the lives of people since he wasn’t a well trained farmer” Ope said...
“ Really? Interesting! Idiopemipo, you seem to know so much about Sunkanmi’s farm, what about your farm?”
“ My farm ?”
“ Yes Idiopemipo, you have over 8 million people eating from your farm, what do you feed them?”
Ope became mute immediately...
“ What’s wrong Idiopemipo?, You have no answers for me... Well, Let’s take a stroll to your farm for inspection.Let’s see if you are better than Sunkanmi.”
FATHER walked down from the tall Farmhouse and the trio followed him...
As they moved on and passed different farms, they saw a name that was familiar “ JUMOKE JOHNSON”. The farm was very green with different fruits on it.
“ You remember her?” Father asked and the trio nodded as they remembered the first angel in human form they had met.
