Today marks the beginning of funeral rites for the late woman of God who was murdered in cold blood some two weeks back. With a service of songs in the evening today and a church service tomorrow 23rd July, followed by internment later at Gudu Cemetery, Abuja.
Many have walked the surface of the earth and gone back to their creator murdered the same brutal way, but her own exit has been unique, with news travelling fast all over the world. People have called from London, US and other ends of the earth, some claiming they knew the woman and others asking for information. She surely didn’t die in vain. The information about her death has transversed the nooks and crannies of the world.
So, I say woe to the haters of the gospel, who taught they could silence the voice of one crying in the wilderness, saying “this is the way, walk ye in it”. They taught they could put an end to her voice but failed. That is why if our hope were to be in this world only, we would have been of all men most miserable. It might interest you to know that God has raised another voice and the gospel continues. The message is still being heard early in the morning in that area like that woman used to do.
Man only wastes his time, thinking he can stop the word of truth. They have always shut their ears to the knowledge of the truth since the days of Jesus Christ. They eliminated him as well thinking that was the end.
But God shows his anger from heaven against all sinful evil men who push the truth from them(Rm 2:18) They were fully aware of God’s death penalty for these crimes, yet they went ahead and did them anyway, and encouraged others to do them too.
I still have not gathered the courage to walk past that particular spot where the late Eunice Adewale was murdered. I fear that her blood is still on that ground(of course it is, even if not in the physical sense). I worry that I might step on her blood. And I don’t want to.
I have lived in shock and trepidation this past week imagining what she went through in the hands of her murderers. The stabs on her back made me shiver.
Since that day, I haven’t seen ‘Abu’, the guy who has a kiosk located close to the spot. I wonder if he was arrested. Though I haven’t gone to check him during the week. I know that a lot of young guys hang around this kiosk at night smoking away every night.
Perhaps, I knew this woman when she was alive. Probably, she walked past me on the street. Maybe I know her church.
But for the haters of the gospel of truth, did they actually think that the word of truth would stop in that area if they eliminated that person? Why did they choose to fight their creator?(because that’s what they just did) and I know he will surely recompense.
