It is rare to find a politician who truly knows the potency of the word of God. A man of God who like David knew how to use the word against the Goliaths of his time, he cast the word like a stone and Goliath fell, never to rise again.
This poem was written and first published by Chief Fani Kayode on 23rd October 2009. Exactly one month later, on the 23rd November 2009, President Umaru Yar'adua fell into a coma and was flown to Saudi Arabia. He never came out of that coma. He was flown home 3 months later on 23rd February 2010 and later died.
This poem is a testimony to the power of God when mixed with faith and confidence. I have highlighted the prophetic parts of this poem. We will bring you other parts of this testimony next week if Jesus tarries. Excerpts;
A NOTE TO UMARU; 'I STAND AND I FIGHT'
BY CHIEF FEMI FANI- KAYODE'
The word of God is immutable and unassailable and He is faithful to keep it to the very end. If I know nothing else, this I know to be true. I know that scripture cannot be broken and that whether we live or die tomorrow is in the hands of God alone. I also know that injustice and deceit can never last and that persecution only fuels dissent. There comes a time in the life of a man when he must be a man and stand up and speak the truth, even where others are too timid and intimidated to do so. And he must do this in the knowledge that whatever the price that he may have to pay, whether it be assassination, arrest, detention, harassment, persecution, prosecution or utter destruction, he is ready to pay that price and take the glory and the honour that goes with it.
