The late great Nigerian evangelist and revivalist Joseph Ayo Babalola once had a prophetic vision which highlighted to him the futility of chasing after the world:
I saw a man dancing and rejoicing because he was getting married. When we got there, we saw a dead woman, most beautiful in the world. This man was dancing and rejoicing greatly. When I asked the Lord for the interpretation, the Lord said the dead woman represents the world and the joyous man represents the people in the world that love the world. Whoever loves the world and its riches is married to a dead. Don’t love the world or anything in it because the world has died and a dead cannot do any good thing. There is nothing to enjoy in the dead.
This prophetic vision, and others that were given to Babalola can be found in the book Great Revivals Great Revivalist by Abi Olowe.
