21 Gun Salute

 


I was thinking this morning.... In all my years on earth, I have never seen a year that everyone wished and prayed will roll by so quickly like 2020. It was so bad that so many Nigerians joined Australians in crossing over into 2021 ten hours ahead of West Africa Time (WAT). E shock you?


But will the knee of 2020 still be on our necks in 2021? According to the Bible, there were 21 acts of rebellion by the Israelites that set them free from Egyptian control. In a similar way, we have resisted the force of Covid to break our resolve and crossing into 2021 is a confirmation that we are free indeed. We must therefore be deliberate in giving God thanks because it is by His mercies that we are not consumed.

Year 2021. Hmm! 21 is the number of shots fired in a peaceful gun salute to signify no hostility. Year 2020 has been like a period of war for mankind with over 1.8 million people dead from Covid-19. However, the unveiling of 2021 signified the end of hostility with 21 gun salute. 21 gun salute is also given to honor royalty and heads of state. Yes, 2020 may have pummelled and buffeted you to the point where you no longer believe in yourself or your God, look up like royalty because this is 2021 (Revelation1:6).

Therefore, in this new year, stand with your head held high and receive 21 gun salute, which in pidgin English will be '21 Gbosa' and in core waffi patois will '21 kpoko.'

Happy New Year! Welcome to 2021!

.....Just the thoughts of a certain Wey Mey.
