Part 35 - My Father's Farmland

 

Please Father, I have lived amongst humans, I have worn the skin of humans. I know how it feels when a human is hurt... I remembered crying to you to let the cup pass over me. I can say for a fact that I know the hurt and pain Ola must have felt when she saw Sunkanmi... but I know what you want is that humans should learn to forgive one another, which was why I prayed to you before leaving the earth that “ Father, forgive them for they know not what they are doing”.

I know Ola is guilty of not learning that part of Godly living but please for the sake of my death, please give Kikiolaoluwa another chance... Please father...Remember the good works of her parents...Your son Amos Jenriayegbe was a good and godly man.” The SON said to the FATHER.

While the Son spoke to the FATHER, everywhere was quiet, Father looked without saying a word...

FATHER wept...

FATHER Loved all His creatures, but most of his creatures did not Love Him...

His son knew the Love FATHER had for mankind was deep, so His son said one last sentence that made Father have a rethink about His judgement...

“Deal with Ola and Oba according to your Love and not according to their sins...”

**********

Ola felt like he fell into his body...

Pelumi was holding her husband’s hand when she felt his hand move... She had been speaking in tongues continuously for the past 30 minutes with tears flowing down her face...

“Jesus!” She exclaimed...

“Oba, Oluwasomidoba... Can you hear me...”

“ Yessss” Oba responded weakly...

Oba looked around the room and he was grateful, he wasn’t in the farmland again. God had given him a second chance... Hot tears flowed down his face…

What about Ola? Did Ola make it? He looked around trying to find out if Ola was in the same room...

“O…la?” He tried to say to his wife...

“In the next room...” Pelumi replied

“Alive?” He asked

“She is still breathing, but not yet awake..” Pelumi replied

“Lord, please....” He remembered every little detail of what he had seen...

Pelumi fell to the ground rolling on the ground in tears…

“Thank you father, for not putting me to shame... Thank you for making all my seeds speak for me... Thank you…Thank you for not turning me to a widow, suddenly”

“Pastor Sunkanmi?” He asked his wife

“We don’t know where he is, Michael has been trying to reach him...” Pelumi rose up

“ God, please give Ola a second chance, please ....” He said quietly

“Please take me to Ola’s room” he managed to say...

“You need to be calm, you cannot just rise up and walk up to her room...” Pelumi said...

Oba obeyed Pelumi...

************

Ola didn’t wake up for days. Oba sat by her side for days praying she would wake up...

Sukki decided to pay them a visit, though in fear, because he didn’t know what to expect. When Oba saw him, he knelt before him asking him to forgive them for trying to play God concerning him. Sukki also apologized for the wrong He ever did to his family...

Sukki asked for permission to be alone with Ola...

“Oh Lord, for the hurt I caused her in the time of ignorance, Please let her live, Forgive her for her unforgiveness towards me, I got my punishment of living a promiscuous life, I have not been able to settle down in marriage for over 25 years, which I pray daily to you about, but Mrs Ola has a wonderful family who loves her... Father think of our daughter together, she would be devastated to lose her mother...Therefore, please let her live...For the sake of your call upon my life, let her live in the name of Jesus Christ, your Son.”

Kikiolaoluwa sneezed and came back to life…

Sukki jumped back in fear, in awe of Who God was…

He fell to his knees weeping…

*************

Father had released both of them that day…His judgement had been...

“ For the sake of my son, Jesus Christ, I release you to go back to your bodies, but Kikiolaoluwa, you will remain at the gate until Sunkanmi comes to pick you up at the gate…”

Oba and Ola had walked towards the gate of the farmland, Oba had been allowed to pass through the gate. Ola watched as Oba disappeared into a faraway light… Ola had to wait for Sunkanmi to come pick her up. She waited and waited until she suddenly saw him coming towards the gate of the farmland…

Sukki held Ola by the hand and took her towards the light….

*************

“ Thank you…Jesus...Thank you..” Ola said faintly as she saw that she was back to life. She saw Sukki weeping, and she wanted to tell him, she was the one who ought to be crying…, but she didn’t have the strength, she only managed to say…

“ I am so…rry”…
