Adefolake: What Caused My Hiatus

It is 4:57 am, I am breastfeeding and I remember I have a website. I have an audience that read my articles from all over the world. I noticed during my hiatus, my readers still visited my website and new readers found my website; so it is only fair I explain what caused my hiatus and carry you all along on this new journey.

Yes, I am a mum now, gave birth late October and motherhood is a beautiful experience but more than that, it is a privilege from God. It is very easy to blame my lack of writing on pregnancy but that would be a lie. I had the easiest pregnancy, I was six weeks pregnant before I found out I was pregnant through several visions (dreams). That is a story for another day. I had no spitting, no swollen feet or morning sickness of any kind. The only change was an increased appetite in my second trimester which dwindled in the third trimester. Since we have ruled out blaming it on my pregnancy journey and wonderful baby. Let’s go to the real cause of my hiatus.

I needed recalibration.

As my regular readers know, I love to write about what I believe in. I started writing for BellaNaija over four years ago and I wrote passionately about the environment, health and safety. When they rejected some of the articles, I decided to start my own website so I had the freedom to write what I wanted to.

Sometime last year I began having regular visions (dreams of the night) Acts 2:17) and God began showing me things clearly, answering questions I had. I usually woke up understanding some and even when I doubt the meaning, God finds a way to clearly confirm my vision by my Spiritual Father (Prophet Uebert Angel).

Towards the end of last year, I had a vision where God told me He is coming back in a specific number of years. I woke up frightened, and did not mention it to anyone waiting for a confirmation. When I got to church on Sunday, Prophet was talking about what God told him as well. He used scriptures to show how soon Christ is likely to come back and mentioned how his spiritual father Pastor Chris Oyakhilome has spoken about how soon He is coming back. I could feel my pulse rising as I listened to my Father preach about how God told him a lot of people that think they are going to heaven are not going. In that moment, I knew the message was for me. I could see areas I had missed it and the possibility of missing eternity with Christ did not seem farfetched.

I began building a better relationship with the Lord and the more I delved deeper into Him, the more He showed me more things I will share once it’s time. You need to understand it was not fear of going to hell that made me want a deeper relationship, it was just the thought of missing out on spending eternity with Him. January this year I stopped writing for BellaNaija and the reason was because He told me, (Climate change) is only a part of the preparation of my return. The Holy Spirit used the scriptures to show me how it was never about humans activities which causes climate change or global warming but the earth preparing for his return. And said if that did not happen, it will make Him out to be a liar, which He cannot liar (Matthew 24:6-8).

It was time for me to recalibrate and refocus my attention on what really matters, Jesus Christ and His return. This burden was laid on my heart and I carry it with so much joy. What a privilege for God to tell me personally he is coming back soon. So this is my new quest, to make Christ known until He returns.

I conclude with this scripture, “Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”
