TOPIC : SOLUTION FROM THE WRONG SOURCE? (EPISODE FIVE)
BIBLE VERSE: “But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes we are healed” Isaiah 53:5 KJV
The combination of ignorance and confusion is a terrible blow in the life of any human being. There is nothing as deadly as going through life challenges and not knowing the source, let alone solutions. It is like trying to escape from unseen hands throwing stones at you in the midst of pitch darkness. You might actually be running in the wrong direction.
It is natural for anyone in trouble or challenging times to seek the cause or solutions. However, where he seeks the solution from is what matters. An African (Yoruba) proverbs says “When a child falls, he looks ahead, but when an elder falls he looks behind”
Oba Folagbade knew there was a problem, but he did not know where to turn for solution. The choice of Baba Jamolaiya-Bi-Eru for consultation is the most foolish decision the king ever made. Unknown to him, Jamolaiya-Bi-Eru works in conjunction with the forces of darkness tormenting the small town of Onigba-Iwofa.
As you go through the challenges of life, where are you turning to for solutions? To the forces of the world? To soothsayers, fake prophets/alfas, mediums, witch doctors and the likes? You are even compounding your problems the more. The best person to repair a faulty machine is the manufacturer. Imagine Karl Benz stepping into your garage to fix your Mercedes Benz? You can go to bed while he works and enjoy your car afterwards without further hitch!!!
God is your manufacturer; He knows where the faults are located. He gave His son, Jesus as a sacrifice ahead of those faults. It is now your choice to consult Him for solutions. Know Jesus…Know Peace!!!
