In 2005, I was a very young man in the university, just doing my thing, hanging out with friends, etc. I wasn’t living a conscious spiritual life, I didn’t have a deep relationship with God as I have now and I had not come to the knowledge of the truth; but I was a Jesus freak and a church fanatic. All I did back then was preach and argue with Catholics, Muslims and members of other congregations and I always won my arguments, funny enough, they never changed. I have always had dreams, but as at that time, I didn’t necessarily understand their respective potencies.
These were the dreams with their respective outcomes:
Dream 1: Bellview and Sosoliso Airlines
Late 2005, I had a series of multiple short dreams or scenarios in one dream. I can’t even remember whether they were in the same dream or not, but they were very scary and real. I remember some patches of other similar scenes, but I can’t document them here since they are not clear.
In the first scene, it was at night and I was at home, outside at the backyard, and people were in their homes doing whatever it was that they were doing. I sighted a distant plane flying and it was coming towards my direction. Like most people would do, I was just beholding the beauty of this airplane as it drew closer, wishing one day I would enter one. The next thing I knew was it started swaying in the air and losing balance, it then started descending, and like a dream, it crashed some miles away from our area of residence. People came out and watched as the smoke went up, I remember running to see if I could see the site. In the other patches I earlier spoke about that were not clear, all I can remember was that there were multiple plane crashes. Planes just kept falling to the ground.
In that same dream, I think (I can’t remember if it was another dream), I was in the university, at the lagoon front, just chilling and then a plane was just flying past the third mainland bridge. Lo and behold, this plane started descending and then crashed. It was so real. When I woke up, I just hissed, it just didn’t make sense to me at all and I started asking myself or God (Whoever) questions. Why would airplanes just start crashing anyhow? If multiple airplanes would indeed crash, who the…am I? Why would I be the one to be seeing such future, when there are mighty men of God and General Overseers out there? What was I supposed to do, pray for the nation, or pray for the world? Who was I to pray for, the protection of the nation? The prayers would not even reach anywhere, me? Who am I? Besides, I was pretty sure no member of my family was travelling or even had the resources to travel by plane as at that time. So I just got up and got myself ready for lectures and set out.
About a week or two later, there was a painful news all over the country; a Bellview Airline airplane flying from Lagos to Abuja had just crashed shortly after takeoff from Lagos, in Ogun State; killing all passengers (over 100). When I saw the raw footage by AIT (African Independent Television) showing all the mutilated body parts, I was in fear and tears, but it didn’t occur to me that I had seen it coming and did nothing about it. Hooking up with my friends in school, after lectures, we started discussing the painful occurrence, and then during the discussion, it then dawned on me that I had seen it, that was what I saw in the dream. I had mixed feelings as I still insisted that it wasn’t any of my business, because I was a ‘nobody’ for such to be revealed to me, and even if I spoke out, I would have no audience at all, and besides, my family was not going anywhere near airplanes at the time, due to economic reasons.
About 5 weeks after the Bellview plane crash, there was another devastating news; a Sosoliso Airline airplane flying from Abuja to Port Harcourt crash-landed at the Port Harcourt International Airport and burst into flames, killing hundreds of people. Aboard that plane was Bimbo Odukoya, pastor of Fountain of Life Church, who survived the crash, but later died the next day due to severe injuries.
It then dawned on me that I did see these events, but I did nothing about it. Even though I did cry, especially during the wake keeping done for the Bellview victims, I still maintained my position that there was nothing I could do; it was not in my power to stop such occurrences and yet, my family was definitely not going to be involved, so we were protected. It never occurred to me that I had the power to pray and cancel such events even though I, nor any member of my family was involved.
I soon learnt a big lesson the next year or two, when I had another dangerous dream not having anything to do with my family and I let it go.
Dream 2: The Helicopter Crash
In 2006/2007, I had one of those annoyingly weird and scary dreams again. This time it was a helicopter crash. I can’t even remember the scene, but there was a helicopter crash and as usual, who do I know that is entering helicopter? We haven’t entered airplanes; it’s now helicopters we want to enter. I just hissed and went about my activities for the day.
About a month or two later (of course, I had already forgotten that dream), there was news of a helicopter that crashed somewhere in Niger Delta; only that this time, my uncle was inside and he died. We mourned his death, it was very painful, leaving his wife and only begotten son behind. That was then, it wasn’t until 2012 that it dawned on me that I saw that crash and I did nothing about it. I was just talking to someone on the potency of dreams and we were sharing our respective dreams. It was then that it dawned on me that I saw that helicopter crash that claimed my uncle’s life.
Like I’ve said in previous issues, if I haven’t learnt my lesson, I wouldn’t be writing and warning on dreams. My uncle died in a helicopter crash that I was warned about in a dream, but I neglected it because it had nothing to do with me or my family. It’s too late now, isn’t it?
The lesson from this episode is that we may have dreams that are not directly related to us or our immediate families, God may even show us national disasters to come, we may even be shown things about other people; but we must never neglect one of these warnings. We must prayerfully attend to them, even though the parties involved might not know. Yes, there are some occurrences that cannot be mitigated, the only solution would be our protection, but we must still prayerfully attend to those dreams.
I mean, you might ask yourself the same questions I asked myself, but the truth that is now revealed is that God is no respecter of persons, and He will reveal His secrets unto any of His children as He chooses. Don’t ever underestimate yourself and your position in heaven, don’t ever compare yourself to those mighty men of God out there; yes we must respect them, but yet, they are just children of God like you and me, and the same God that reveals Himself to them can also reveal Himself to you. That was the mistake I made, I didn’t know who I was, I didn’t know that God could reveal secrets to anybody that loves Him, I expected that serious matters like that will only be seen by the General Overseers and mighty men of God, but I was wrong. I didn’t know that I had the power to cancel and nullify such, I thought it was only the mighty men of God that had such powers, but I was very wrong.
In 2012, when I saw the mass murder of NYSC (National Youth Service Corps) members during their camp, I knew better then, of course, I was still baffled that such things would be revealed to me. I rose up, prayed and cancelled such occurrence, I then went on Facebook and shared, asking everyone to also pray for their loved ones that would be doing their Youth Service at that time, because personally, I had nothing to do with NYSC, having completed mine. By God’s grace, there was no news of any such evil event in any of the camps in Nigeria. I definitely would have gone crazy if I neglected that one again and evil struck as revealed.
Cheers and God bless you infinitely!!!
