Irony is going!

13 December 2013, 14:19 Onyeji Domonic

I have seen many days on this earth. I have equally been sleeping and waking. The going has been up and down. But truth is that up is the way that leads to heaven because God dwells on high; he is far, high and above all in life.

Let me put it in other way round. It is factual to say that God was with us when we passed through valleys. Truth is that God's presence and influence are felt everywhere. But one needs to meet him at the top if one needs to have close and serious dealings with him. This means that world is a kingdom, and God is an influential king who rules from above. He does not dwell in valley; he has no house there. If you ask the wise they will tell you that God pays visit to valley only when there is disaster there. One must be going through hell, passing through fire in valley before God will be with him there. That is to say that there is nothing like God when one is comfortable in valley. If one falls into a pit and refuses to cry out for help will help come?

What I am saying here is that I woke this morning and saw irony going away from Biafra. Where was it going? I don't know. What I know is that I saw it leaving. It has remained for too long in Biafra and Nigeria. But I can now see it departing.

What is irony? If you don't know go the wise and ask. They will tell that a great irony is leaving Africa. Look well!!! You will see that kings have been trekking while fools have been riding on horses in African countries like Nigeria and Biafra. Why? Kings are meant to ride on horses. So, why have they been trekking?

Bottom line or summary here is that great change is coming and many hands are needed to carry the change especially in Biafra. What we actually need is one people and many hands. Educated hands and ignorant hands are all important. But if I may ask! Who wants to remain a fool or ignoramus? The change!!! and war? How many???
