Stupid question from a stupid rich man

16 September 2014, 09:32 Onyeji Dominic

"...what shall I do to inherit the kingdom of God," a certain rich man asked Jesus in Bible. It is not necessary for me to make any explanation here because majority of people in life today is Christian, and this is one of the most popular stories in Bible. There is no sensible adult in life who had not listened to soothing sermons from fanatical preachers in this regards. We hear them every day from pulpits preaching it without any good sense of reason. I mean there was no single day that pasted without people watching and listening to benighted and fanatical preachers on both television and radio stations. It is obvious that Biafra and Africa at large are full of religious minds and activities these days.

The religious maniacs, bigots and sheepish congregation are always there with messages concerning the rich man and Jesus. Everybody knows the story, but intricacy of the message is not known to everybody. This is true because everybody is not insightful and wise enough to know or see the hidden truths in the words of wisdom - Bible.

That is by the way! What I actually want to say here is that the rich man asked a very stupid question under the Sun. If we ask me why, I will ask us to go and read one of my articles titled "AN ACT OF HUMILITY FOR BACKING!" The write up gave us to understand that Jesus was never a sheep. I made it very clear to us, and the message was delivered in simple words for layman to understand. We were told that Jesus was Lion of Judah but he deemed it good to leave his lion fold and disguise himself as a shepherd in sheepfold just in a way to get help, backing, fund or support of the majority who was too sheepish in nature those days. I mean we were told that Jesus came to build the Promised Land as kingdom of Israel under the Sun. The building required one-people with many hands. He knew that there was no way he could do without the people giving their full support to him in reality. That was why he had to humble himself like a sheep in a way to get support and fund from the majority in sheepfold. He stooped very low to the people but there was none that gave the support to him including the stupid rich man who asked that stupid question concerning the kingdom. I mean Jesus used wisdom to seek backing from public. He asked the people to donate money for him to build the kingdom, but they failed to respond to his wise appeals for public support. That was why he had to give diplomatic answer to the stupid rich man.

The rich man asked, "...what shall I do to inherit the kingdom..." and Jesus answered sagaciously, "Go sell everything you have and give the whole money to the poor." It means that Jesus was very angry with him. He was very, very angry in his mind.

In fact, things like insight, intuition and sincerity revealed that Jesus really wanted to give deadly punishment to the rich fool. That reply he gave was purely indirect or opposite in meaning. I mean what he said was not what he really had in mind. It was a diplomatic reply.

According to insight and sincerity, Jesus said in his mind to the stupid rich man, "I asked you people to donate for me to build the kingdom. If I may ask! How much did you contribute? You want to inherit the kingdom in your retarded mind. Nonsense!"

I have said things like this severally to us - Biafrans. I do not have to repeat myself but let me just remain us that I am an erudite seer from East where the Sun rises. I mean let nobody get me wrong. I am not asking anybody to contribute money because I am not Jesus of Biafra. What I know is that I see Biafra every day, and the Biafra I see is great light and savior of Africa. If I may ask! What is light? What is savior? I mean let us remember what Jesus said in Bible. He said, "I am the light of the world." If we ask me, I will say that wisdom is cooking process in Supernatural. Our souls need it for mental feeding, and the food consist of many ingredients which include donation, contribution, education, erudition, Levi, backing, finding, research, wizard and what have you. It means that education and learning alone are not enough to attract wisdom for the Supernatural works of creativity in Biafra under the Sun.

There were many articles I wrote and published in this regards. They were meant to help us understood Biafra better, and one of them was titled "THE WIZARD IN BIAFRA. The messages give us to know that light of salvation requires us to become wizards in Biafra under the Sun! That is one of the vital "ingredients" which we really need as creative minds in the great land of wisdom - the wizard in Biafra, not religious rites and activities
