Yesterday we read Acts 16 as a family and my dad asked me what I learned. I’m sure he was expecting me to talk about the power of prayer & staying connected with God as Paul & Silas prayed and sang their way out of jail. But not scholar Jollz.
I had a different revelation.
What did Apostle Jola learn? My spirit was moved to see that it’s very good to be the citizen of a powerful and respected nation. Oh yes.
Verse 37
But Paul replied, “They have publicly beaten us without a trial and put us in prison—and we are Roman citizens. So now they want us to leave secretly? Certainly not! Let them come themselves to release us!”
Verse 38
When the police reported this, the city officials were alarmed to learn that Paul and Silas were Roman citizens.

Verse 39
So they came to the jail and apologized to them. Then they brought them out and begged them to leave the city.
Me: can you imagine if they were citizens of a different country with no rep, no military or diplomatic might internationally recognised. Abi what do you think?

My dad: Jola for goodness sakes

Me: come let us reason together

My dad: okay, no.
Me: So you see that if your country has sense, you have rights and can’t be treated anyhow without recompense. Thank God for the reading of his word
Me & my dad:
My mum:
Anyway I implore you all, my brothers and sisters to read the same thing and see what I saw. Maybe the holy spirit is using me to encourage you to finish filing those papers. Maybe I’m a troublemaker. Maybe it’s maybelline
The moral of the story is this is the kind of thing I do during bible study in the Ayeye household. I know many of you here are one 10-10 jump away from the human barbecue flames of hell so I hope my sharing the good word pulls you back from the brink.
Till next time I get a revelation, Agba Jolly.

I receive offering in all currencies. Don’t be shy
