Part 11
LIFE IN VENE-AH KINGDOM

I wondered what Aunty Gold’s house would look like. I felt she died as a teenager, therefore she didn’t have enough time to do much …

“ But Jesus also did not have a lot of time on earth. Cassy, it is not the number of years we spent in REATH that matters, it is the quality of the things we do there that matters…” Aunty Gold said to me obviously hearing my thoughts….

“You should see houses of some people who didn’t spend a lot of time in REATH….You will be surprised…. There is Lyon who only spent 7 years in REATH…there is Isabel who spent only 13 years, there is Magnus who spent only 14, Iredele spent 15 years like me. Otunba spent 21 years and you should see his edifice here in VENE-AH…” Aunty Gold said to me

I was eager to see all these edifices…

“ You will see them, the beautiful thing about VENE-AH is that everyone is friendly with each other, so no matter where you are allocated, you are permitted to go pay your friend a visit. When you get allocated, I will take you around and introduce you to new friends…” Aunty Gold said smiling…

“ Next! Tinuola, Please step forward!” The Allocation man said to Sister Tinu. Sister Tinu was that person everyone needed in one’s life. She was a member of the hospitality unit, her Husband was Pastor Mathew who I had earlier seen had another wife in the village… Sister Tinu was too much of a giver, she could give her breath if it was possible. I can’t begin to count how many blood donations she had done for church members. She sponsored school fees, kingdom projects, she just had the ministry of help and putting smiles on people’s faces…

We all looked up to the screen!

*********

IN THE PAST

All that I had mentioned was displayed on the screen, but little did I know she knew her husband had another wife, but she never fought him or asked him about it, even up on till earlier that day when we were at Sister Jane’s wedding and Pastor Mathew wasn’t around yet… As she went about her duties at the wedding, we heard her innermost prayers…

“ Lord, please touch Mathew’s heart and let Him know that what He is doing is wrong, I know anytime he goes to that village, your protection doesn’t go with Him because he is going outside your will. Please forgive him!”

*********

“ Welcome Tinuola, you were a good woman who gave out without reservation and a good wife. You have been allocated to the INNER COURT. I built a beautiful edifice for you!” The Prince had appeared suddenly before her with the most genuine smile.

“ Though you didn’t have Children in REATH, you raised, nurtured and sponsored other children. You should see your house… I would have built a bigger edifice for you but your occasional depression, lamenting, complaints, anger towards the King, bitterness of heart, because of your childlessness kept crushing the stones I was setting…”

“ Is complaining to God wrong?” I asked Aunty Gold…

“ If it wasn’t, Why was God angry to the point of punishing the Israelites when they complained in the wilderness?” Aunty Gold asked

“ But sometimes, our problems can be overwhelming and we tend to complain. Though I don’t complain because right from when I was a kid my mother spanked me anytime I complained!”

“ She was a good mother!” Aunty Gold said as she gave a good smile “No matter what we go through as humans, we should learn to pray and not to complain! We should avoid words like “ God, this is not fair, this is not right, I am angry with God, rather, you should use words like God, I don’t like what is going on with me, please Lord sort me out! I never complained about my Sickle cell status back In REATH.”

“ Hmmm…. Sister Tinu’s Allocation would have been better if only she did not allow her complains to affect the building of her edifice!” I reasoned silently but something else clicked with me…

“ My mother!” My mother had died years back, did she make VENE-AH or LEHL( also known as SADEH)?

“ Did my mother make it?” I asked Aunty Gold.

My mother had died when I was much younger. I was raised by my grandmother. Growing up, I wanted to know if my mother made Heaven, because she turned from being a Christian before death took her away.

My mother was a fervent Christian until poverty shook her stand in Christ. She started prostituting herself to make ends meet. She died 5 months into her sin. I was in boarding school when my grandmother called to inform me that she had passed away!

“ You want to know where she ended?” Aunty Gold asked reading my thoughts

“ Yes!”

“Well, if she had ended here, the moment you got into Vene -Ah, she would have been notified..” Aunty Gold said

“Notified?” I asked

“ Yes, I was notified you were around… You see in VENE-Ah, the moment someone you knew back in REATH makes it here, your Information LAMP beeps showing you your friends who made it…

“ LAMP?” I asked

Aunty Gold stretched her palm and a light shone out of her wrist… The light became a screen and on the home screen was Aunty Gold’s profile…

“ This is our information LAMP, it is our communication gadget, the King also communicates to us through this… Once you get allocated you will get yours…let me search for your mother on my LAMP to know if she is in VENE-Ah!”

I was dumbstruck!, heaven was so technologically advanced…

“ What’s your mother’s first name?” Aunty Gold asked

“ Adunni Ade” I replied

“ LAMP please search for Adunni Ade the mother of Cassandra!” Aunty Gold turned her LAMP to my face as it scanned my face!. In the split of a second, the search was over…

“ Gold, Adunni Ade did not make it to Vene-ah, she must be in SADEH” the voice from the LAMP answered

I felt bad, my mother was in hell….

“ But, during our search, I found Beatrice her great grandmother. She is here in Vene-Ah, she lives in the MOTHER’s COURT.”. the LAMP Voice said

“ Beatrice, Great Grandma Beatrice, I never met her, but my grandmother told me amazing things about her. Grandma told me she was the best mother in the world…!” I thought silently

“ She must be, only special women make it to the Mother’s Court. Women who raised great children, who nurtured good children, women who made it a priority that their children fulfill destiny were those Allocated to the Mother’s court. One of such mothers who live in that Court is Mary, the mother of Jesus, we also have Elizabeth, and so on… Therefore, your great grandmother must have been a wonderful mother…” Aunty Gold said

“ After my Allocation I will love to see her” I said…

“ The edifices in mother’s Court are magnificent… that’s where I stay.” Aunty Gold said

“ You!” I asked very surprised

“ You were not a mother back in REATH!” I said

“ Yes I was, I told you I was raped and I got pregnant. I got an Allocation in Mother’s Court , because I didn’t terminate the pregnancy. Despite my sick state, I wasn’t ready to terminate the life of the Baby! In vene-Ah, it was counted unto me as righteousness!”

“Hmmm!”

“ Next Cassandra!” I heard the Allocator saying to me….

It was my turn to be allocated!
