“THE SCIENTIST’S GOD”

Ella sat on the bed looking radiant…
Rejoice ran into her mother’s room in excitement… Folabi couldn’t help but shed tears.
“I don’t know what you did Mr Folabi, but she woke up by herself around 2am in the morning. The nurse on duty said she was just shouting “Who is pouring water on me” and by the time he got here she was fine. All the symptoms I still saw last night were all gone… Out of medical doubts I called in the Labouratory to carry out a test on her and you won’t believe , Your friend is Islingbee Virus Negative… I am still in awe. I have tweeted it and there has been great responses. People say it is a miracle… and they want to know who you are because I stated it that this miracle could have only happened because of the patient’s friend…” the doctor was saying very excitedly

Chief Larry and Seun rushed in to Ella. They were so happy she had recovered.
Folabi couldn’t move an inch. He was perplexed, grateful and very emotional…
“ Folabi, please come closer… the doctor told me how amazing you have been”
Folabi bowed his head instead, sobbing. His understanding of God became wider…
He realized not all emotional feelings towards a person should lead to dating and Se.x. He was happy he put his Emotions to good use. God had allowed that passion and likeness for Ella to linger for years because He knew a day would come when Ella would need someone who loved her to intercede deeply for her…
Chief Larry went to the door and pulled Folabi in, on getting to Ella, he hugged her and said
“ I am happy you came back, you are a proof of my faith”.
Ella spoke to Stone over the phone and all Stone did was weep on the phone. He kept apologizing to her and he reemphasized a lot of times how much he loved her…
“ I am now a good man, when all of this is over, you will know I am a better man..
I love you Ella…”
Folabi withdrew from the group and sat at the reception…
For the first time, he felt lonely and regretted the years he wasted as a bachelor…As he sat waiting for Ella’s discharge note, some newsmen came into the hospital. Folabi wondered why they were there. They asked for Doctor George. When Doctor George got to the Reception, he pointed at Folabi…
“That’s Him, that’s the man who prayed for someone who is Islingbee Virus positive and not up to 24 hours she had become negative…”
The newsmen rushed at Folabi asking him questions…
“Tell us, was it a prayer of Mercy since most people believe the Islingbee Virus is from God?”
“ No, Islingbee Virus isn’t from God but the works of humans, and that is why I prayed to the Creator of the one who Created the Virus. Professor Glass was a scientist but God is his creator. Which makes Him the Scientist’s God. Therefore
Only God knows the antidote for What Professor Glass made. All I remember is that I had a short trance while praying with my friend yesterday. I saw three men fumigating a large farmland. It then dawned on me that my friend’s life must have been infested and therefore needed fumigation. I prayed alongside the patient’s daughter last night and by this morning she tested negative..” Folabi said
“That is to say We need prayers that will bring down spiritual fumigation of the Land… “ Said one of the presenters as she faced her own cameraman
Massai watched Folabi on the Live T.v…
“ Yes, that’s my man… Tell them prayer works and if we all with one voice reach out to Heaven, God will have Mercy.” Massai said laughing and dancing
“And the fireflies?” Wendy was still in a bad mood about their first daughter…
“ I believe it is the same rain we need, but it might be after praying for Mercy. The fireflies are from God. I am sure about it. Do you remember Rejoice had a dream the first time we got here?”
“ About a hand that wrote on the wall, and the eyes that was shedding tears which became fire…?” Wendy confirmed…
Wendy took her time to analyze everything that was going on and she said…
“ Oh my God, If We fall under the strong hands of the Lord, who then will save us.?”
