I LOVE YOU, BUT” (OPEYEMI AKINTUNDE EPISODE 43-45)
“I LOVE YOU, BUT…”
As Inspired by the HOLY ONE
Maurine had the strong feeling to call Pamilerin after seeing her in the dream begging for her help.
“Dearest Mom, Please help me!”
“Help you? You didn’t appreciate the help I gave you initially, you felt the help was not enough”
“I am sorry, Please Mummy, I am trapped… Forgive me…”
Dearest Mom had woken up from that dream and she knew she had to call Pamilerin.
She tried dialing Pamilerin’s number, but it was ending almost immediately like her number had been barred.
She called Freeman instead.
Freeman had given the sad news of the video he had received from the Lady and how her number had not been going through.
“Why didn’t you call me?” Dearest Mom accused Freeman.
“Mum I did, In fact there was a revelation I wanted to share with you for better understanding.”
Freeman narrated the dream to her…
“Mum, I saw a mother who was angry with her daughter. The mother in a bid to show her anger was beating the child. The Child however was apologizing and asking for Mercy. The Mother was so angry she didn’t heed the daughter’s plea. Eventually, when the Mother satisfied her rage, she stepped back only to find her body full of sore, wounds and openings. So, instead of the child having the injury it was the mother who had the injury.”
Maurine knew what the dream meant. It was a confirmation of the dream she just had.
She was the mother, and Pamilerin was the child. The beating was the punishment of neglect. Maurine knew she had to Forgive Pamilerin so that she won’t be the one to suffer the consequences of whatever punishment she was giving to her.
“Hmm… Pamilerin hurt me a lot, but I guess I am still unconsciously seeing her as not my child because when any of my children hurt me, I don’t discard them” Maurine said out loud.
“Mummy, please forgive my wife and please together let us bring her back. The force of a mother and a husband with God can pull Pamilerin back.” Freeman pleaded.
Baba Shagba sat in his Shrine thinking about Beauty and Winter’s directive to kill her…
“I hope someday this woman will not kill me too, when she is through with me. I don’t trust her. She may get a higher herbalist and finish me.” Baba Shagba reasoned.
“One step at a time, when we get to that bridge, we will cross it. Let me take care of the girl” Baba Shagba resolved.
He was leaving for Winter’s place. It was the perfect timing to kill Beauty without suspicion. He would fire the arrow at her from Winter’s place.
Winter had sent him the address and from his estimation, it would take him four hours to get there. It was going to be a night Job and hopefully, if everything goes well, he would come home in the morning to meet Beauty’s dead body.
“That’s not how Christianity works. The gift of revelation is a special gift from God, He didn’t reveal what He did to you for you to confront Iya Rolake physically. The weapon of our warfare is not carnal. There are different forces attacking your daughter, from your end and from her husband’s end. God has just revealed to you the attack from your end for you to handle it. When we are through with it, we can now invite the husband and tackle whatever attack coming from his end. The attack could be from the husband’s girlfriend you said you made blind. Who knows, someone may be fighting on her behalf” Aina said to a tensed Ajoke who was on her way to attacking Iya Rolake physically.
“Hmm.. so What prayer am I meant to pray?
“Any Power attacking my children as a way of attacking me, God, overthrow their wickedness and put an end to their evil powers in Jesus Name”… Aina said.
“I am not leaving here until they call me that my daughter is back home..”
“That’s the Spirit, that is the Jacob Spirit. The Spirit of ‘God, I won’t leave your Presence until you answer me’ ” Aina encouraged her.
Ajoke sat on the bare sandy floor of the village church.
As she opened her mouth to talk to her Father, prayer points poured out of her heart unto God…
“Father, Do not put me to Shame over this Child, Lord, she is the Hope and light of my family. Lord, do not permit the enemy to put out the light of my family out of envy. Lord, any power that wants me to weep over my daughter, Lord give them their own tears in exchange in Jesus name.”
Ajoke travailed. For the years she was not available for Pamilerin, she decided to make it worthwhile.
Maurine on getting home decided to hold a vigil for Pamilerin. She called three Pastors to Join her in the vigil.
As Maurine sat in the living room, she went through the family Pictures, looking for one of Pamilerin’s pictures to use as a point of contact. As she looked through the Photo Album, she saw for the first time, the partiality Pamilerin had spoken about. In the photos, Pamilerin’s outfit always looked odd from that of her daughters’.
“ God, I am sorry if I failed.”
“I told you to take her as your daughter, not Like your daughter. It is two different things” a soothing Voice replied her.
“As my daughter, Not like my daughter?” Maurine asked for clarification.
“Yes… I told you AS your daughter. I wanted you to become her mother. If I wanted you to just help her escape poverty, I would have told you to treat her like your daughter. You failed me Maurine. Your daughter, who another woman birthed for you is at the verge of death. I would request her blood from your hands. That is the dream Freeman had. You thought you were punishing Pamilerin by abstaining from her, but you didn’t realize you were punishing yourself. If you lose Pamilerin, you have lost the daughter who will take care of you in your old age. Your daughters do not plan on returning to this country ever. I have seen that future, and I decided to bring Pamilerin to you, as she will be the one in the country in your old age. If you let her die now, your old age will be lonely and you will be very sickly.” The HolySpirit’s familiar voice educated Maurine…
“My God! Have Mercy on me and Help me to correct my error. Please don’t let it be too late…”
To be continued…
“I LOVE YOU, BUT…”

Timothy had a strong leading to fast that day, which he did but towards evening, he started feeling very weak.
At 5:30pm, which was the usual time for him to leave his house to the place he had been preaching for the past 4 weeks, he laid on his bed faced up…
“Father, I am tired. Can I sleep in today?”
“If you faint in the day of adversity, Your Strength is Small” Timothy heard in his Spirit.
“ Godddddd!” Timothy said.
He rose from the bed. He had no choice but to obey His Father. He planned on staying there briefly.
It was 6 pm, Obinna had volunteered to join Freeman in his prayers. They had agreed to pray at intervals of 6pm, 9pm, 12 midnight, 3am , 6am for 3 days straight. Obinna called in and the rate at which Freeman picked up his phone at the first ring, showed Freeman was ready to get back his wife no matter.
They started with a session of Praise as led by Obinna…
“ We need to thank God for Creating us as Men, we are God’s First creation who he placed on this earth to care for this beautiful garden of His. God has given us different sections of his beautiful garden to care for, you my Friend you care for ICT needs of this garden called life. I care for the health of people. Let’s thank Him for this amazing life he has given us as men. We thank God we are not Jobless…”
Obinna and Freeman went deep in thanksgiving, though they were far away in different countries…
“Secondly, let’s thank Abba father for giving us the gift of marriage..”
They prayed that for another five minutes.
“Thirdly, we need to pray for the Mercy of God. My Man, adultery is one of the sins God detests so much, so at this point, My Man, we are at the point of “ God Forgive me or I go nowhere.”
Freeman laid on the floor in his room groaning in prayer.
Remi, Venita, Juanita and Theresa heard Freeman’s groaning from his bed room…
“Why is Daddy crying?” Theresa asked
“He is not crying, he is praying” Venita clarified
“ About Mum” Juanita asked.
Theresa was the only one who didn’t have the understanding of what was going on. Freeman had told her, Mummy was on a business course with Mrs Winter. This was what he had told Juanita and Theresa, but the story stopped making sense to Juanita when she continually heard Remi and Venita praying about how their Mum should be free from all forms of bewitchment. She had asked them why and Venita in frustration had said…
“Juanita, are you blind? Don’t you know Mum and Dad are having problems? Mrs. Winter is trying to separate Mum from Dad.” Venita had said in an exasperated manner.
“We don’t know, but what matters is we bringing back Mum and dad together”
Since that day, Juanita joined them in the daily intercession before bedtime.
“Why don’t we start praying as well from now. There is nothing else we are doing at the moment. While Daddy is praying in the room, why don’t we pray as well. Remember the story of Jairus taking Jesus to heal his daughter, we can change the narrative and we talk to Jesus to bring Mummy back home…” Remi said enlightening the girls.
The girls raised their voices…
Obinna and Freeman were still in the mood of prayer…
“My first prayer focus is that I want God to silence any voice commanding me to obey the polygamous law of my father’s house.” Freeman said.
“Yes, but let us make it broader, Polygamy may not be the only evil law in your father’s house. So Let’s pray that Lord silence all voices commanding me to obey any evil law of my father’s house.”
Timothy arrived unusually late. Beauty had told Yewande to go check outside if the preacher was around. Yewande didn’t know Beauty was listening to the preacher.
“You know Uncle Timothy?”
“The Preacher? Is that his name?”
“If it has been the preacher that has been preaching at the T junction for weeks now, it is the volunteer uncle that comes to our School to preach at times. His name is Uncle Timothy. I saw him two weeks ago at the T-Junction. He did wave at me.”
“Please I need to speak to him, He has been the voice of hope speaking to me for over 4 weeks. Please tell him about me or can you take me to him..” Beauty said in rush.
Yewande went quiet… In between that silence, Timothy voice came up…
“ Praise the Lord!” Timothy said.
“ He is around! Is he the same person you know.”
“Huh huh” Yewande answered quietly.
Beauty understood she was asking for too much. If Yewande took her out of the house, she would be in trouble.
“Never mind, I understand why you can’t take me out, you think I will escape? And put you in trouble? I won’t do that to you, I promise you that if you take me out , I will come back here. Please I just need to speak to this man…” Beauty pleaded.
Yewande was very unsure, she didn’t think she could do what Beauty was asking her to do for her.
To be continued…
“I LOVE YOU, BUT…”

Yewande heard her father had gone out for the night and was going to return in the morning. She really wanted to help Beauty, but there was no way she would help Beauty out, without everyone in the compound seeing her. All the wives were seated in front of their rooms.
“I can’t …I am sorry Aunty Beauty, but I can go speak to him on your behalf. What would you want me to say him”
“Just tell him I am the captive that needs to be free. Tell him I gave my life to Christ the first night he preached about God making Captivity Captive, tell him I have been following his everyday preaching both morning and night, but tell him I am still waiting for God to bring me out of this pit. You can tell him all I told you about how I got here and how my friend is my betrayer.” Beauty said.
Beauty suddenly stopped hearing his voice… It was unlike him. His message was quite short.
“ Yewande, are you sure he is not leaving?’
“Let me be on my way..” Yewande said as she rushed out.
Beauty was shaking, she had to speak to the man.
“Yewande! Where to?”
Beauty Froze on hearing Chigozie challenging Yewande.
“God! Please, I need to get out of this Captivity.”
“I want to see one of my teachers outside”
There was a long pause, that took forever to end.
“Ok, make it snappy.”
Lara walked into the room. She had been in the kitchen all day as it was her turn to cook for the entire family.
“Are you okay?” Lara asked
“Yes Are you alone?’
“Yewande knows the Preacher!”
“The one we listen to his preaching ”
Timothy was very exhausted. He knew he had given a very short message… He was on the move back home.
“Uncle Timothy!” he heard someone calling. On turning, he realized it is one of the students from the school he was committed to. He was an advocate of sexual purity. He made out time to go to different schools on a monthly basis to minister to them
“Hey!” Timothy said.“How are you? I saw you the other day… You stay around here?” Timothy asked as he couldn’t remember her name.
“Yes sir, it’s been a while you came to our school” Yewande said as she looked around in fear.
Timothy noticed her uneasiness…
“Are you okay? Is there something you would like to discuss with me?” Timothy suspected she wanted to discuss an issue with him.
“It’s about an aunt living with us.” Yewande Narrated all she could…
Timothy was so perplexed by the reality of what the young girl said to him…
“Where is she?”
“She is inside and there is no way she can get out. My father is not around but she dare not step out of the gate. We heard one of the women that tried to escape was struck by lightning.”
“Hmm, tell her that God will surely bring her out. Tell her the same God who brought Peter out of prison will bring her out. Tell her,I will be praying for her… Does she have a Bible? Tell her to read Acts 12: 5-17” Timothy said.
“No, The Bible is an abomination in my house, besides remember she is blind , she can’t read…”
“Yes! Then let me read it to you and you will preach to her…”
“Yes! God can use you or better still, I will preach a second time this evening. Be on your way and tell her that I will be speaking to her through my message.” Timothy said. He was bubbling with Joy.
As Yewande was about to leave, Timothy called her back…
“God bless you for this.“
“You are welcome sir, but please can you pray to God for me, that when God decides to punish my father for the evil he has been doing, that my mother, my brother and I will be saved and we will be free from this prison like Aunty Beauty.”
“Yes! There is the story of a prostitute in the Bible who helped the Israelites when they came to spy their land. She also asked for her safety and that of her family. She was exempted from the destruction of the land. I believe you do not like the wickedness of your father’s house and for that be sure that you will not be punished alongside your father.”
“Thank you sir! Let me be on my way.” Yewande said.
“God bless you!”
Timothy waved at her. Timothy couldn’t contain his joy. Though the lady was still in Captivity, he was filled with Joy knowing God was going to bring out the Lady in the most miraculous way.
This was the big fish, his fiancee told him he had caught.
Timothy jumped up in excitement.
“Thank you Lord!” He said laughing so hard…
