SACRIFICE

EPISODE ELEVEN
The journey home was silent. Martin drove the car, Joy was still amazed at the turn out event. Angel was speechless and restless while Street couldn’t stop crying. He kept crying like a baby all the way home. The pastors in the camp prayed for him, some of them tried to consoled him. But he couldn’t stop crying.

The pastor have told them to leave him because he is under the influence of Holy Spirit. He won’t stop crying unless the Holy Spirit console him, this is the true definition of encounter, the true meaning of repentance, let allow Holy Spirit to take charge of him. The pastor explained to them.

They got to Joy’s house. Everybody alighted from the car including Street. He didn’t wait to say anything. He headed home straight. Joy and Angel walked in while Martin drove home after saying his good bye to Joy. It was suppose to be a joyful moment for Angel, because God have used her greatly, but she was not happy and can’t find the reason for her sadness.

Angel dropped her bag, she knelt down and say a few prayer. She sat down looking worried

Thank God it went well, Joy break the silent
Joy looked at Angel and noticed she wasn’t smiling
What happened girlfriend? You should be happy and smiling, I don’t like the face am seeing. She sat on the dressing mirror stool facing Angel.

Joy, Angel called her softly

Yes

Street, is he really born again? Just like that? I mean how can it just happen so easy

Joy understand the confusion in her voice, she moved the stool closer to her.

Angel, it doesn’t take God a lifetime to save a soul if there is an instruments to use. It will take God a Second to save a soul if the instrument is available. God has use you as an ninstrument to save a many soul which street is among.

Humm, Angel sighed

I know you are not happy, you are thinking of how you have treated him in the past and felt guilty, you felt bad about your past actions to him

Angel looked at Joy in a way that confirmed what she said

You don’t need to worry, Street is now a changed man, a new man, old things have definateky passed away. Am sure he will understand you if you tried to explain things to him

Do you think so? Angel.asked looking sorry

No, I did not think, am very sure

Humm.. Angel sighed

Am hungry, let me quickly fund something for us to eat. Joy stood up and went out

David smiled.. You didn’t offend me. I have never for a day see you as an enemy or someone who own me an apology. I should be the one to thank you, because I was saved through you.

I wouldn’t have come for the program if not because of you, and God used you for me on several occasions, even when I was giving you a hard time proving stubbornness. I should be the one to thank you for making yourself available for Him to use. Angel, pks wioee your tears, you didn’t offends me, I will rather thank you

Angel was surprise at what he said. She was expecting him to get mad at her and even walked out on her, but here he is talking like a perfect gentle man.
Thank you so much, thank for your understanding

You are welcome, he said smiling

There is one other thing I want to tell you

Okay

Emm.. During the time you were after me, I mean when you asked me out. The Lord told me to go ahead and accept you because that is His plan for me, but I was scared then because of some reasons, I wouldnt mind if I can still be your woman as God plan

Humm.. Angel, having you as a woman is the best thing a man can ever want. You have everything a man want in a Lady. Truthfully, I really love you and I wanted to settle down with you, even though I didn’t believe in .prayer back then, as I only follow my heart not what God want,

I would have love to go back to my request of marrying you back, but am sorry I can’t. Angel am in love with Jesus. I want to settle and groomed in His word. I want to know more about him now. My priority now is Jesus. Probably I will be ready after getting what I want, but for now. Am not ready again

Angel was heartbroken and shattered, she fought back tears forming in her eyes. It okay David. It a good thing you are putting Gid first. Thank for your time. She stood up

Thank you too

Angel walked straight out of the church. Joy was surprise to see her that way, she went back to the church to see David

David, hope all is well?

Yes. Thank a lot for coming

It our pleasure. I need to go now bye
Bye

Angel poured out all her emotions, she cried bitterly on her way home. Joy was confused. She asked him why she was crying but Angel refused to answer her. It was a silent journey back to their house
.
Angel refused to see anyone for days, she refused to eat nor bath, she cried everyday and prayed asking God to return David back to her. She asked for forgiveness of din for every bad thing she has said in the past. She didn’t stop fasting for weeks asking Gid for mercy.

She remembered the dream she had, ( When the old man ask her to enter the house, but she refused, another Lady eventually enters and the lady with David sat down on a big throne. The whole people bow down and hailed them,) she remembered she pleaded with the old man to enter, but the man told her she has been replaced.

Uncle Peter as he was fondly called by his immediate family was so sick. He has been on bed rest since two weeks. Joy and Martin was the first to went in. The man was happy to see him. He look weak on his bed

How are you my son? He said faintly

Am fine uncle, when did you become so sick?

The man smile. It time to go home. Am only waiting for him

I don’t understand, Martin looked at his wife who looked confused too. Waiting for who uncle
?
The Lord told me you brought someone with you

Yes, they are my friend. He was surprise

Let them come in.
Martin stood up and ulshered them in

Immediately David walked in, Uncle Peter was filled with the holy spirit. He speak in tongue for several minutes. Martin was surprise,
Just a minutes ago, he couldn’t even speak louder, where did he got the strength from? He asked no one in particular

Everyone was surprise

Uncle peter sit up
Come here my son. He looked at David

David was confused, why will he called me, I haven’t even meet him before, David thoughts

Pls come, he called him again

David walked towards him slowly.

The man hugged him

I have been waiting for you. The Lord told me, my predecessor, someone who will emerge as the new general overseer of God’s church is a thug, and unbeliever with a great heart. He told me you will soon see the light of salvation. The day you gave your life to Christ, the Lord told me. The nan looked at everybody and could see their confused face

Humm.. David, the man called him

David was shocked, he hasn’t told the man his name

I should have go back to my ancestors, I should have go back home. But God told me to wait for you so that I can bless you. You will be the new General Overseer of God’s church. All other preparation has been made,

The man brought out an olive oil from his shelf. He told David to kneel down. He pour the oil on his head. David fell down immediately. He stated speaking in tongue. The man smile. You have receive the power authority to be the head of all nations today, it shall never depart from you

Joy, martin and Angel was so shocked to say Amen.

David laid on the floor lifeless

He will be okay. What he received is too much for his physical body. The man explain to ease his friends mind

David wakes up after six hours of lying lifeless. He stood up looking different. The man was happy to see him again

He called him and his friend together. .I have to say some words with you before I go
You are no longer an ordinary person, but an annoied man of God. You are a God chosen minister, a Shepard, a preacher and most of all a father to different nation. All the nation will serve you. White men and women will serve you. But with this great task, you will name an Eve.

Eve?

Yes, a wife. Your rib. Are you married?

No, I have someone in mind

Who?

Her name is Precious

Humm.. My son, I will advice you to pray well.

Yes Sir

Angel was shattered immediately David mention Precious. Everything began to make sense to her. Her dream is about to manifested
David will become the general overseer, which means the whole world will hail him. That signifies the throne she saw. And precious will be the queen, the lady God replace her with in her dream. She rushed to the rest room and cried bitterly. Have I lost David finally. Will he ever accept me. God pls give me last chance! All I ask for is a last chance

David, Joy, Angel and Martin left there late in the night. They drive home silently. Martin was happy for David. His friend has turn to his spiritual father. Joy was sad for Angel. She knew Angel was not happy. Angel on the other hand didn’t stop crying silently.

The thought of being replace bring more tears to her. David mind was filled with thought of who to chose between Angel and Precious. Precious told him God want them together, and he also love her, but he fine it hard to overlook Angel who was there for him when he was a thug. Who should I go for Oh Lord? Angel or Precious? He thought within himself as they drive home.
