The Throne in Heaven
4 After this I looked, and there before me was a door standing open in heaven. And the voice I had first heard speaking to me like a trumpet said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this.” 2 At once I was in the Spirit, and there
before me was a throne in heaven with someone sitting on it. 3 And the one who sat there had the appearance of jasper and ruby. A rainbow that shone like an emerald encircled the throne. 4 Surrounding the throne were twenty-four other thrones, and seated on them were twenty-four
elders. They were dressed in white and had crowns of gold on their heads. 5 From the throne came flashes of lightning, rumblings and peals of thunder. In front of the throne, seven lamps were blazing. These are the seven spirits[a] of God. 6 Also in front of the throne there was
what looked like a sea of glass, clear as crystal.

In the center, around the throne, were four living creatures, and they were covered with eyes, in front and in back. 7 The first living creature was like a lion, the second was like an ox, the third had a face like a man, the
fourth was like a flying eagle. 8 Each of the four living creatures had six wings and was covered with eyes all around, even under its wings. Day and night they never stop saying:

“‘Holy, holy, holy

is the Lord God Almighty,’[b]

who was, and is, and is to come.”

9 Whenever
the living creatures give glory, honor and thanks to him who sits on the throne and who lives for ever and ever, 10 the twenty-four elders fall down before him who sits on the throne and worship him who lives for ever and ever. They lay their crowns before the throne and say:
11 “You are worthy, our Lord and God,
to receive glory and honor and power,
for you created all things,
and by your will they were created
and have their being.”

Wanted to wee
Went into an eatery
Eatery said their rest room was bad
The next best thing to do is look for a bush
I wanted to but a car sped by and somebody called my name
I realised I cannot do it
I am known by people I don't know
I saw a car dealership
I walked in
I saw a
I asked them if it has a toilet
They said yes and two rooms
I asked how much
They said it
I told them to send me their account number
They did
I paid and collected the keys
I went into the caravan and did my wee wee
I called my driver to drive it home
I drove myself home
As i drove home I asked myself why I bought the caravan
Was it just to wee?
Was that a wise way of spending money?
Was I becoming wasteful?
Where would I park it?
When I got home I found three missionaries waiting for me
The Holy Spirit told them I have a caravan for them

The Mountain of Fear and the Mountain of Joy
18 You have not come to a mountain that can be touched and that is burning with fire; to darkness, gloom and storm; 19 to a trumpet blast or to such a voice speaking words that those who heard it begged that no further word be spoken
to them, 20 because they could not bear what was commanded: “If even an animal touches the mountain, it must be stoned to death.”[c] 21 The sight was so terrifying that Moses said, “I am trembling with fear.”[d]

22 But you have come to Mount Zion, to the city of the living God,
the heavenly Jerusalem. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly, 23 to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven. You have come to God, the Judge of all, to the spirits of the righteous made perfect, 24 to Jesus the mediator of

Revelations 1: 10 On the Lord’s Day I was in the Spirit, and I heard behind me a loud voice like a trumpet, 11 which said: “Write on a scroll what you see and send it to the seven churches: to Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia and Laodicea.”
12 I turned around to see the voice that was speaking to me. And when I turned I saw seven golden lampstands, 13 and among the lampstands was someone like a son of man,[d] dressed in a robe reaching down to his feet and with a golden sash around his chest. 14 The hair on his head
was white like wool, as white as snow, and his eyes were like blazing fire. 15 His feet were like bronze glowing in a furnace, and his voice was like the sound of rushing waters. 16 In his right hand he held seven stars, and coming out of his mouth was a sharp, double-edged

Every long holiday for him was spent at the village since he clocked six
His father wanted his children to be constructively engaged during the long holidays and felt the attention his parents would pay the children would help them grow in wisdom and maturity
His father's mother
was a trader
His father's father was a farmer
His father had four children
Two girls and two boys
Both his parents were working and they didn't have a maid
Leaving the children to their devices during the holidays was a concern for their parents
Idle hands usually leads to troubl
The last holiday they had before the village trips began. the oldest of them, 13 years old at the time was caught by their mother hiding in a wardrobe with one of the neighbours children in the name of playing "hide and seek"
Nothing untoward was going on but a 14-year-old boy

An apostle was addressing his own members
If not for technology, you wouldn't be privy to his discussion with his members
He was sharing with them within the context of their understanding of his message, nature, and personality how he thrived in the middle of a season of casting
He mentioned what he achieved and even though it might sound like a boast, he was not boasting to you
He was boasting to his church members and as such, you cannot call it a boast
A father does not need to boast to his children and a shepherd surely does not need to boast to
his sheep
Newspapers needed a scandal and felt the message of the apostle was the right fit in their quest to get eyeballs
You read it and you began to insult the apostle
You, the son of a dog from Abatan refuse dump decided to drag an apostle on Twitter
Do you understand what it

I remember having a vision once
I was sleeping on the couch in my sitting room when the glory of the Lord ushered me from this plane to another
In that vision, I was in a classroom and I was taking note as I was being given instructions on how to handle the kingdom's resources
that will be coming my way in the next 5 years
I was a personal assistant at the time
The year was 2018, July the 3rd
The vision was vivid
It wasn't the first time I would be in such a scenario
In the past, I always made the mistake of assuming I would wake up with the notebook
on which i was writing all the instructions lying beside me
By the time I wake up and began to struggle to remember the details of the vision, I will find myself remembering about fifty percent of the information
It used to bother me that I wouldn't carry out instructions to the
