She was the one who took an interest in him
When he moved into the compound, he minded his business
He was a printer whose business was booming
He didn't have time for any frivolous relationship
He leaves his flat very early in the morning and returned home very late at night
One saturday morning, very early in the morning
He heard a knock on his door
At first he didn't know it was his door that was being knocked
The knock persisted and he eventually roused from bed
When he opened the door she was someone standing there
A lady from the flat upstairs
She greeted him and told him she was there to update him on a meeting all the tenants had the previous evening
He kept nodding politely to her words
He didn't really know who she was and he didn't want to offend her
He listened as she talked about the new fees to be paid for sweeping the compound and security
He eventually gathered that she was the landlord's wife
It came to him as a bit of shock
The landlord was a man in his fifties
The lady was barely in her twenties
It wasnt as if he had not seen such before
Everybody had a story!
He gave her the money she came for
He forgot all about her
Two weeks later, he suddenly saw her at his office
She said she had a printing job to give him
Somebody died somewhere and she was to print the Order of service
Since they were neighbours, she wanted him to have the job
He was swamped at the time and his business had grown beyond such jobs
He told her so politely
But rather than turn down the job completely
He called one of his former apprentices who was just setting up his own business
His apprentice took the job
She was out of his hair
Three days later, she was back
She was told by the apprentice to come at 1pm to collect her fnished work
But she miscalculated and got to the apprentice's shop at 10am
She needed somewhere to stay till 1pm
He welcomed her and ordered refreshments for her
He was up and about throughout her stay because he had deadlines on many of his jobs
Eventually his apprentice came around to deliver her job
She refused to leave afterwards
She said she had some things to discuss with him
Eventually he sat down to listen to her
She told him he was very diligent and hard working
She had taken a fancy to him
Not for adultery purposes but for friendship purposes
She would like to go into printing business soon and she would like to spend some time to understudy him
He didn't know what to say
He found the idea very unsettling
First and foremost they are neighbours
She was his landlord's wife and she would get to know how much he makes
No! No NO!
Everything inside of him screamed no!
But he didnt tell her No!
He told her he would think about it
By this time it was quite late and he was getting set to return home
They went home together
Later that night he heard some weird noise upstairs
He heard her and her husband yelling!
It was nothing strange!
Couples fight all the time!
The next day, as early as 5.00AM
He heard a knock on his door
He opened the door
It was his landlord!
His landlord was a very short man, about four feet tall
It was more of the reason why he was confused the first time he met his wife
The man looked at him ans said
"You are the one helping me to sleep with my wife, because I am too old to satisfy her, right?"
He shook his head "No sir, I dont know what you are talking about"
Landlord: She left home yesterday and spent the whole day with you
He: No sir, he gave a printing job to my apprentice and said she came to collect it
Landlord: And both of you did what you wanted to do and returned home together
He: No sir, she said she will be opening a printing press soon and she wanted to understudy me
Landlord: You know I could have killed you by now! Technically I have a right to!
Landlord: Yes, it is called crime of passion and I might go to jail but at least you'd be dead
His landlord walked away, briskly, like a dwarf doing a sprint
When he got to the office that day, he told some friends what happened
He didn't see it as much of a big deal
His friends told him never to return to the house
"If an insecure, jealous spouse accuse you of sleeping with his wife,
even if you are not and you have evidence to prove you are not,
such a person will never be convinced!
He or she would rather believe his or her version of the truth than the real truth
Because a jealous person feeds off hate, malice, victim mindset, pain and perceived injustice,
rather than focus the light on his or her emotional inadequacy,
a jealous and insecure person will blame everybody
because he or she had exalted himself or herself to a godlike status and cannot be wrong!"
He listened to his friends and slept in a hotel from that night
A week later, some of his friends went to his flat and packed his properties to another flat
He didn't mind the fact that he had just spent three months out of his one year payment
He would rather forfeit the paid rent and live!
Three months later, he was fast asleep when he saw her
She came to him in a dream
She was naked and very alluring
He was very drawn to her but he didnt move towards her
She smiled at him and beckoned on him seductively to come over
He knew he was dreaming, he was aware it was a dream!
He resisted, trying frantically to wake up from the sleep
Suddenly the ground he was standing on started moving
He didnt know why he didnt step backwards
He was taken right to her
She pulled him to herself
He lost the battle
They had sex several times until he forgot completely that it wasnt his desire!
When he woke up in the morning, he was struck with dread in his heart
He knew substance had been taken from him
When he was having his bath, he felt pain all over his genitalia
He reasoned it was mental
His body must have been physically aroused during the dream
He ignored the pain
By that evening, the pain had become something else
He went to the hospital
The doctors ran a series of tests
They found nothing wrong with him
He was given pain relievers
He couldnt sleep a wink all night
The next day he went back to the hospital
A full blood work was ordered
The test proved he was fine
Why then couldnt he stand up unaided? Why was he feeling droopy?
Sometimes it would feel as if his legs were tied together
Sometimes it would feel as if his body was losing all feelings
The test kept saying he was fine
HE WAS NOT FINE!!!
He decided he had to tow the spiritual route
There must be somebody who could help him in church
He went to see his pastor
He told his pastor what had happened
His pastor listened and prayed for him
But nothing changed!
He was even feeling worse, as if his body was shutting down
His pastor picked up his phone and called the Brother in Jeans and T-shirt
He had been reading his stories on gbengawemimo.com and follows his @gbengawemimo twitter handle
His church is also a pentecostal church although he was based in Sokoto state
Pastor: Am I on to so and so
Brother in Jeans and T-shirt: Yes sir
Pastor: I want to give the phone to someone to explain to you what is going on
Pastor gave him the phone, he told the Brother in Jeans and T-shirt everything
The brother in Jeans and T-shirt asked the Pastor to lay hands on him
The brother in Jeans and T-shirt said Pastor please repeat after me sir!
"I command you in the name of Jesus, be healed! I command this demonic deposit in you to go now! GO!!!!
That was all!
Brother in Jeans and T-shirt: Pastor please release him!
Pastor: I have released him
He: Sir, I am fine!
Brother in Jeans and T-shirt: Run around, jump up, do everything you cannot do before
He did everything! He was fine!
Brother in Jeans and T-shirt: It remains one thing sir
Pastor: What is that?
Brother in Jeans and T-shirt: Lets get him filled with the Holy Spirit!
Pastor laid hands on him, he began to pray in tongues
They prayed on the phone for thirty minutes
Brother in Jeans and T-shirt: Before you sleep tonight, pray in tongues,
if she comes to you in the dream I command you to tear her to pieces
He: Yes sir!
That night as he slept, he saw him, the husband! He was carrying a sacrifice towards a T-junction
He: Mr so and so, where are you going?
The husband looked at him, dropped the sacrifice and ran as fast as his little legs could carry him
He woke up and sent a message to the Brother in Jeans and T- shirt, narrating his dream
He got an instant response "Shalom"
The next morning, when he got to work he saw them
His former landlord and the wife
They apologised and the landlord gave him an envelope of his rent back in full
He collected it and blessed it in their presence
He told them he has forgiven them
PS: This event happened in January 2019
You are more dangerous when you are asleep than when you are awake
Don't ever believe you cannot be an active participant in your own spiritual space
When you sleep you are untouchable!
Awake you are invincible!
In your night dreams you are indomitable!
In your imaginations you are inexhaustible!!!
Don't cower anywhere
You have every realm covered
Jesus conquered every realm for you!
Don't ever entertain the thought that you have been spiritually attacked
Cockroaches dont attack people
Someone can get injured while running scared from cockroaches
It doesn't mean the cockroaches are powerful
It means the person was scared into injuring himself!
The devil heckles and scares believers all the time
Hoping to force them into making a mistake or commit an error
He would then seize on the error to afflict their minds and realities
Don't ever believe his lie or his suggestions
If the brother didn't believe he lost something by sleeping with the lady in the dream
He would never have been afflicted
Affliction would only grow in a mindset of fear and terror
Get the Word of God in you, Win always
