Part 24 - My Father's Farmland
“He listened to all your songs, he was also meant to be a great farmer, but your glamorous lifestyle made him feel, you were getting it right… you became his role model, he didn’t know how you made some of your money, but he wanted to be rich at all cost…Your songs like….”
Ope’s songs played in front of the trio….
*Get Rich or Die tryin
*Poor man be slaving.
*Anything for the pay.
“All your songs influenced him to go into a lot of vices, from armed robbery to assassination to money ritual. In his lifetime, before he died, he had killed 179 people in his bid to make money. You knew him as G-MONEY.”
Ope had her mouth wide Open, she knew G-MONEY, he was one of those who gave her money for her concerts. He was one of her biggest fans….She never knew he got his money through diabolic means, though she always knew he couldn’t have had all that money through legal means.
“Idiopemipo, do you know how many people’s blood are on you?, that you dare speak about Sunkanmi’s farmland?... Sunkanmi’s farmland was as filthy as yours in the past as he was feeding his members with unripe produce as that was the level of farming he knew. The man who trained him in ministry did not give him a complete guide to farming. He taught him what he also knew... Unlike you whose father had taught you well, you had no excuse to plant poisonous crops on your land..”
Ope was the one been spoken too, but Oba and Ola were shivering, FATHER’S wrath was not a good thing, fire exuded out of his body at every of his outburst.
“Sunkanmi didn’t know how best to farm than what he had been taught, he had been taught that there was therefore no more condemnation in Christ Jesus, but they excluded the second part that states that, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.… They didn’t teach Sunkanmi, that the works of the flesh like immorality, drunkenness, Gambling which is a product of Greed, should not be seen in the life of a new farmer…, but recently, Sukanmi came to know the truth and he came begging for Mercy. His once filthy land like yours was swept clean by the blood of the Saviour. Now, his farm which he started growing little crops on, you idiopemipo came and set it on fire with your filthy hands…”
FATHER’S voice roared throughout the farmland, which was followed by heavy silence.
Then HE spoke again...
By this time Ope was weeping profusely, she knew what awaited her... She had used her talent against God and had not reconciled her ways with God before meeting with FATHER.
“You who is so full of sin was the first to cast a big stone, Should I begin to list all these other rottenness lying on your field, some of the things your siblings don’t even know….?”
Ope’s secret sins begins to play in front of the Trio.
Ope committed Adultery with different men, Some were politicians, others Co- celebrities.
“ You slept with different men at will, in your few years of marriage with Lucky, you had a divorce, got married to Bonny, you later divorced Bonny and remarried Lucky..” FATHER said in anger
“Have you forgotten how, out of your negligence, one of the fruits of your farmland got rotten and died...?”
A scene played out, and the trio saw how Ope’s first baby had died spiritually in the hands of her nanny.
When Ope had her first baby for Lucky, they were so caught up with Ope’s music career, she hired a nanny to take of her baby. Little did they know that the nanny was sexually assaulting the baby boy by playing with his genitals.
“ Your first son is a Sex addict because of your negligence...!” Father’s voice roared...
Ope wept sore not knowing that was the source of her son’s promiscuity.
“ You killed your son from childhood, he is just a living dead man”
The trio also saw a new scene playing out....
Ope taking hard drugs to get high before recording her songs or going on stage…
“You who has secret sins, what level of morality do you have to judge my Son Sunkanmi, who has mended his ways with me…?” FATHER said once again with the voice that roared like that of a lion...
“Get thee behind me, you worker of iniquity and let your farm be given to another who is more worthy!” FATHER said in conclusion to Idiopemipo
Some Valiant looking men appeared suddenly at the command of FATHER’S voice and carried Ope away…
Almost immediately, some other valiant men appeared on her farm and started clearing the mess on the land.
It was done in less than a minute, and a big billboard was placed on the land which read “VACANT, NEW FARMER NEEDED”, while the billboard “ OCCUPIED” was removed and broken.
The space at the Top, God had given Idiopemipo was taken from her and Heaven was already looking for who to give her land and tools to....
Oba and Ola wept as they watched their sister taken away from them. This was the point where the closest of friends got separated....
Oba and Ola shivered not knowing how their farm would look like as they heard the Valiant workers shouting...
“ Idiopemipo Jenriayegbe’s farmland is vacant, may someone else take her place, may someone else become her husband’s wife, may someone else who is more worthy become her children’s mother, may someone else be given her talents to bring Glory to the FATHER....”
