“Hi, Welcome Chuks, your wife, my daughter has been waiting for you” An elderly man said while standing at the end of a tunnel as I sailed towards him in the dream world. He pointed towards a lady and on looking closely at her, it was Chinaza, she was carrying a baby. My heart softened at the sight of her as I rushed towards her, I hugged her tightly but something was different. Her smell was different, she smelt like extremely burnt food.

“ Chuks, I have missed you, I really wish you could leave where you are and join me here, Look at our baby” Chinaza said and right there I felt strong lust. I became highly sexually aroused and I felt like making love to Chinaza,but somewhere in my heart, I knew she was dead and I shouldn’t have anything to do with her, but she started caressing me and I started moaning loudly....
“ Stop it in the name of Jesus, Stop that in the name of Jesus” I heard the loud echo of Favour’s voice as Chinaza was all over me.

I stopped and pushed Chinaza from me...Favour’s voice was like a loud echo from the distance.

“ So she is the new woman in your life?, She wants to take you away from me?, No I will kill her instead, tell her to stay off you” I saw Chinaza disappearing from me and the man who stood as her father gave me a cold stare and turned away...

I woke up but the sedative was still very strong on me...

“Favour, thank you!” I managed to say as I knew she was the one who saved me from the sexual intercourse with a dead woman in my sleep.

“ For?” Favour asked

“ I almost had sex with Chinaza in my sleep”

“ Hmmm.. I guessed as much when I heard you moaning in your sleep...” Favour said

“ That’s why I want you to take me out of here.. there is an insider here, but you don’t believe me” I rushed those words as I was still battling with the sedative. It was forcing me to shut my eyes.

“ I believe you, but let the sedative wear out, we will leave here” Favour said reassuringly

“ Ok, but I have a feeling there is a dream I had that is very important, I mean that has quality information for me, but I can’t seem to remember it” I said as I had that strong feeling of missing something

“ Close your eyes and say this, Holy Spirit ,please remind me of every revelation, dream, vision that the devil is trying to steal from my memory in Jesus name”

I said the prayer and sailed back to sleep,but I heard Favour’s reassuring voice...

“Sleep ,sleep, I am right here and God is with me”


This time around, what I saw was extremely bright light, I couldn’t look up at the one standing in the bright light...

“ He doesn’t want you to remember but I will remind you” Said the man whose face and whole being was surrounded by bright light

All around me, screens popped up and I watched my encounter with the Angels and demons....After thoroughly watching, the bright man said to me...

“Congratulations on being saved,but note that the fact that you are saved does not mean the demons won’t come after you, in fact the number will greatly increase, because you know all the players in a football match go after the man with the ball.

ChukwuEmeka, You are the man with the ball, so the legions from hell will come after you, but the assurance you have is that if you stay close to me and you let me lead, they won’t be able to get you!”

The dream wiped off and I woke up.

I was wide awake this time around and I remembered clearly what had happened after I passed out. Favour was sleeping on the empty bed in the ward. I looked out through the window and saw it was a bit dark. I must have slept for up to 6 hours. I reminisced on the beautiful sight of the Angels and Christ, though I didn’t see God, I saw a part of His Glory that was inexplicably beautiful...

Hot tears dropped from my eyes as I imagined what would have been my lot if not for Mercy. I looked towards Favour and thanked God for her prayer of intercession...


After about 20 minutes of being quiet and thinking on my next move and how I could make a meaning out of my life, I heard Favour’s voice

“ Awake?” Favour asked

“ Huh Huh” I replied

“Okay?, So What’s next?” She asked

“ I remember what I saw...” I said

I told her everything about my encounter and how her prayer of Mercy had saved me. She was surprised and pleased. My description of the Angelic beings thrilled her as she went on about wishing she had spiritual eyes to see how beautiful Angels were.

As she spoke in amazement, I saw that beauty I had seen in her while we were in our university days.

“ Why was Favour not married?, why was she single at that age.” My heart beat increased as I thought about her.

“ What’s on your mind?” Favour asked me...

“ Nothing” I lied

“ Born again Christians don’t tell lies” Favour said winking at me and laughing as she sat on the empty bed in the ward

“You really want me to say what I was thinking about ?” I noticed the old me was speaking, I spoke with a seducing voice, which I immediately rebuked myself of


“ Why are you not married?” I found myself asking

Favour was not expecting that question as silence took over the small room...

Neither of us said anything, but Favour broke the silence.

“ It’s a personal decision, I am not keen on marriage” Favour said

“ Why?, you want to stay celibate for God?” I asked

“ I don’t want to tell lies so please let us drop the topic” She said looking very firm.

I turned to the other side and tried to dwell on the important things , I started reminiscing on the goodness of God to me, and how I had been given a second chance. The words never to disappoint God was ringing loudly in my ears.

I suddenly remembered the hospital agent again and her words about me returning to my vomit. I had better follow Favour’s path and become a celibate. I owed God a lot...

“Chuks...” Favour touched my shoulder and electricity ran through my spine and I immediately wanted to make love to her...

“ What was this?” I asked myself, “How come I am becoming sexually attracted to the person who ought to help me spiritually out of my predicament?” I thought silently as I turned to face her.

“ I think we should leave this hospital like you wanted, I don’t feel comfortable here!” Favour said

“ Am I returning to my house?” I asked

“ I don’t think that is a good idea, the pastor told me before he left that you must not have anything to do with all that you have acquired in the past!”

“ Hmm..., so you mean everything?” I asked

“ Huh Huh... Don’t worry you can still manage at my place till God settles you...”

“ Your place?” That didn’t sound like a good idea too, because the moment she said her place, a picture of me making love with her flashed before me.

I could feel it, it was so strong, the Spirit of Lust was over me, but I had become BORN AGAIN. Was I not suppose to be free from lust!

“ God what is the meaning of this?, Why is this happening?” I asked beating myself up psychologically

I didn’t know what step to take at that point, I was homeless and Favour was offering me her home for a while, but I was already lusting after her...

“ My place is not that big, but you can stay in Mercy’s room, she is presently with my parents on holiday or what do you think?”

“What do I think? Big Question...Should I accept the offer or not?” My heart pumped really hard at that question.
