Part 25 - My Father's Farmland
He knew the meaning, Sexy Sasha was gone…
He wept sore, he asked God to have Mercy and keep the other two.
Mama Aladura felt it in her Spirit as she started weeping, she knew her daughter in law was gone…
“God! I have served you tirelessly in praying for people, don’t let people ask me where my God is …” She was weeping and asking the Lord for Mercy as she sat in the Taxi that was taking her to the State Hospital.
Michael had called every pastor he knew, asking them to pray for his wife and pleading that if anyone of them knew Pastor Sunkanmi Emmanuel personally, they should please apologize to him on his wife’s behalf.
What Ope had intended for evil for Sukki, suddenly started turning around in his favour. The internet was bubbling with comments on how “Touch not the anointed and do my Prophet no harm” was practically happening. Sukki’s followers started going into hundreds of thousands in less than an hour.
Ope started receiving negative comments instead, people started bringing out some of her past scandal and stating that she who wasn’t a saint was trying to ascertain if someone else was a saint… With her death announced, her followers started unfollowing her. In two hours, 2 million out of her 8 million followers unfollowed her…
Lucky saw his life crumbling, with the death of Ope, all he had rebelliously built outside of God was going to go down the drain…
Oba’s wife had called her parents who were on their way to the hospital. Oba’s wife kept asking God to please show His kindness to her. All of a sudden, Oba started jerking, the nurses and doctor rushed in trying to stabilize him….
Meanwhile, Oba was shivering in a jerky way, just like he was doing on the hospital bed in his unconscious state, as he walked behind FATHER. Father had told them the next farm they were going to check out was Oba’s Farm…
As they got to the farm, the farm was in three parts, the first part was green, while the second part was dry and barren and the third part was bloody.
“You have done a few good things with the opportunity I gave you. Due to your wife’s influence in your life, you gave to the general upkeep of my servants, you blessed the lives of men who worked in my vineyard, you supported church projects, and you gave towards different forms of evangelism. Your wife recently forced you to support a Gospel movie project, which is that big tree on your land.”
The tree FATHER pointed at was a very big tree, it was a recently planted tree, but it grew speedily and bore a lot of fruits.
Oba’s wife Pelumi, had always been passionate about the things of God. She donated to the things of God, she forced her husband on several occasions to support mission work. Oba knew “The Big tree” FATHER was referring to, which had a lot of fruits growing on it, was a movie project he just recently donated to. His wife had read a book and felt the story would be great as a film. She had spoken to the writer of the story about making the story into a movie. Pelumi had forcefully told Oba to donate 20 million for the production of the movie. The movie had become an evangelical success, as lives had been won through the movie…
“Yes you gave generously from the proceeds of the businesses I had given you, but the Position I gave you, what did you do with it?”
At that point, Oba knew trouble was ahead for him as he kept mute….
“You also joined them to fight Sunkanmi, Really? Oluwasomidoba, very early in life I connected you with Kingmakers who gave you a great footing in politics. I started out with making you, a Local Government Chairman for 8 years, what did you do to the funds of the people?...” FATHER said staring into Oba’s Eyes.
Oba eyes brought out tears as he knew the answer to that question, he had followed the system of politics he had promised God not to follow. He had told God he was going into politics to change the society, and with God’s help, he became Local government Chairman, when he was 30 years old.
After he graduated from School, he had become the Personal Assistant to the National Leader of one of the leading political parties. When the party got into power, the national Leader made sure Oba became one of the Local Government Chairmen. He stood up for Oba declaring that though Oba was young, he was wise.
“You authorized payments for ghost workers, which you had a way of sending the money into your personal account. You promised those in your local government, you would make sure electricity was stable, but for 8 years you did nothing. What about your tenure as a governor. You became a disappointment that no one voted you in for your second tenure. You made a lot of Children drop out of school, as you didn’t encourage the educational sector. You didn’t pay teachers their salaries as at when due, so they started failing in their responsibilities as teachers. It was really disheartening to see that you who people helped to make you pass through school, was the one not caring about the academics of the less privileged populace. You were a BIG failure as a governor.”
FATHER’s voice sounded like many waters...
“You were just adding unto yourself money you didn’t need, and depriving those who really needed it, saving money in foreign accounts, keeping money in empty tanks, keeping money in unoccupied houses, burying money in public cemeteries.” FATHER recounted as Oba and Ola watched Oba’s evil political endeavors playing out before them.
Recently, as a senator, you......
