Capture the Big Picture of the Future
Capture the Big Picture of the Future
An award winning Nigerian novelist who is now an evangelist once said more than 30 years ago that I came too early to Nigeria. That I came 100 years ahead of my time. Then I turned equations into paintings and made sketches of flying motorcycles and a car with multiple brakes.
Visions from Almighty God JEHOVAH have been flowing to me from the Holy Spirit. It was during prayers whilst I was working in the office of our GO, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye that Almighty God showed me the vision of the vast land that the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) later got in Dallas, Texas, the hometown of my mentor Dr. Mike Murdock. It was during a night vigil in our Trinity Tabernacle parish in Ikeja, GRA in 1997, that Almighty God showed our Pastor the awesome visions of the social media phenomenon even before Google was founded in 1998 and Facebook later in 2005. Then in 2006, the awesome idea of my iPost Nigeria came in a vision a year after I started my online ministry, The Rhema Blog which majority of Nigerians are ignorant of. The development of my mobile video app has been in the garage of the Knight News Media Challenge of the Knight Foundation in digital incubation. Then my Nigerian Times Blog became the first Nigerian blog participating in the Digital Media Law Project | Berkman Klein Center
https://cyber.harvard.edu/research/dmlp, and I was a prominent member of the award winning Global Voices. Then later, I became a nominating member of the International Law Office.
Of course, majority of Nigerians are ignorant of these facts. And they are still ignorant of the phenomenal iPost Nigeria that everyone with mobile phone in Nigeria will need for IEC and eCommerce 24/7 with a monthly fee of US$1 per user after downloading the mobile video app gratis on Google Play.
Majority of the more than 23 million Nigerians on Facebook did not even know that Mark Zuckerberg, Cofounder and CEO of Facebook visited Nigeria in his first trip to Sub Saharan Africa in August. And majority of them are still very clueless about his visit to Afrinolly Space on August 31 and don't know that Afrinolly is the first and only owner of the phenomenal Facebook 360 degree VR camera in Africa that will change the ecosystem of the Nigerian and African film industry with awesome VR movies for VR cinemas that will make many cinemas in Nigeria to dump their present equipment. That is why I laugh at those who are competing over who has the first and largest numbers of cinemas in Nigeria and the filmmakers who don't know that the game changer is already here. The sooner they visit Afrinolly Space the better for them or be left behind time.
What has been doing the worst collateral damage to Nigerians is not political corruption, but the calamity that majority of Nigerians are intellectually ignorant and retarded and even though they claim to be Christians and Muslims, they lack the spiritual gift of discernment, therefore they don't have both intellectual and spiritual enlightenment, including the legions who say they are graduates with diplomas and degrees from ND to PhD. As our GO said, you can have a PhD and still be a fool.
The famous Nigerian Yoruba musician, Chief Commander Ebenezer Obey said it all in his all time classic philosophical song, "Aimo Asiko Lo Ndamu Eda".
You can use Google Translate to translate the words from Yorùbá to English.
“Kini gbedo gbedo fe fi igi ogede gbe
Kini ategun fe fi igi gedu se o
Oro mi lowo olorun lowo
Aimo asiko lo n damu Eda
Oro wa lowo olorun lowa.”
